Kid Cudi annoyed with Kanye West & Guilt Trip

Given Kid Cudi's well-publicized split with Kanye West's G.O.O.D. music, it was jarring to hear his recognizable vocals sampled on Yeezus: "If you love me so much then why'd you let me go-o-o-o-oooo?" he belts on "Guilt Trip". Turns out that vocal is a few years old and Cudi wasn't happy to hear it on the song, he tells Complex (via MTV).
"I discovered that I was on the song via Twitter," he said. "I saw kids hitting me up, like, 'Are you on 'Guilt Trip?!' or saying 'Great job!' and I'm like, 'What the fuck is everyone talking about?" He explained that he recognized the song and the beat instantly once he listened. He was initially pleased, but quickly changed his mind: "Why not call me and have me come in there and give it? Why underuse me?" he asked. "Why put four bars of vocals to coax my fans into thinking this is a legitimate Kid Cudi feature on this song and it isn't?"
"Same deal with the G.O.O.D. Music album, the compilation," he continued. "Had I not given Kanye 'Creepers' [for "The Morning"], my only presence would've been on that one song, that I can't even remember the title for. I would've barely been on that album."
It's also easy to interpret the Cudi sample on "Guilt Trip" as a sly wink aimed at Cudi—it sounds like Cudi is asking, "If you love me so much then why'd you let me go [from G.O.O.D. Music]?"

10 Types of Sex To Try At Least Once

Role-Play Sex

“We all have fantasies,” says sex expert Lora Somoza. “If you’re in a committed relationship and you find yourself dreaming about a hot cop with handcuffs, don’t be shy [about asking] your guy to play it out.” Role playing allows you both to have the thrill of sleeping with different people without, well, actually sleeping with other people, so it just might be the key to keeping monogamy hot. “If you’re not sure where to begin, try ‘pretending you don’t know each other’ sex,” suggests Somoza. It will give you the freedom to take on a new personality and do things you wouldn’t normally do—but always wanted to

Sex Somewhere Splurge-y

Ever notice how staying in a fancy-pants hotel puts you in the mood like nothing else? Sex expert Tracey Cox explains why: “Few of us are cashed up enough to experience luxury every day, so when we’re staying at a flashy hotel, it’s pretty exciting,” she says. Even if you can’t afford a five-star vacation, upgrade just one night of your next trip to a swanky hotel, or book a night at a posh place in your city for a sexy change of scenery at home.

Sex in a Public Place

The idea of getting caught in the act can be kind of exciting, but that doesn’t mean you have to be an exhibitionist to enjoy it. “Try finding an abandoned parking lot or sitting in the last row at the movies and guiding his hand somewhere naughty,” says Somoza. Even if you have to rush home to really get down to action, you’ll be so revved up by then that the sex will be amazing.

Sex on the Beach

Sun. Crashing waves. Hot guy. Enough said. If there’s a drink named after it, it has to be good, right? Expand your idea of sex on the beach beyond the sand to include lounge chairs, your hotel balcony or even under water.

Forbidden Sex

“If the best-selling book 50 Shades of Grey tells us anything, it’s that women like a little kink,” says Somoza. So regardless of who wears the pants in the relationship, decide who’s going to wear the restraints in the bedroom. “Maybe you want your guy to tie you up and do dirty things to you,” she says. But if you’d rather show him who’s boss, let him know he’s going to be your sex slave for the night and tell him the only rule is that he can’t say no (and, um, why would he want to?).

Bathroom Sex

The most underrated room to have sex in is your bathroom. No joke. “This is why God created bathroom counters,” says Somoza. “Thanks to the mirrors, your guy gets to watch all of the action, which makes it even hotter.” Other options? “Use the tub or the toilet to prop yourself into position,” suggests sex educator Jamye Waxman, M.Ed. You can even light candles and create some sexy steam from the shower to add extra atmosphere.

Makeup Sex

You know when you’re mad at him but also find him incredibly attractive? When you really want to rip off his clothes but also want to resist because you think you should teach him a lesson? Don’t resist. “Makeup sex is hot, steamy and loaded with all the emotion you just went through,” says Somoza. Whether you’re exes getting back together or just a couple reuniting after a fight, makeup sex has a certain electric charge we rarely feel in normal circumstances.

Lazy Sex

Sex doesn’t always have to be a WWF throwdown in the bedroom. The next time you’re sleeping in on a weekend, casually remove all your clothes and then snuggle up to your man so he can feel your naked body. Since men have extra-high testosterone levels in the morning, he’s practically guaranteed to be down for the action. Having that type of relaxed, low-maintenance sex is great for de-stressing and keeping you connected.

Loud Sex

You know all those four-letter words you’re too afraid to say? At least once, let yourself get so totally into it that you use them. All. Share a bottle of wine and psych yourself up to do things you’d never do—like telling him to spank you or demanding he give you an orgasm (while telling him how in explicit detail). Instead of lying on your back during oral, be bold and straddle him instead. And don’t be shy to make noise—in fact, make an effort to be even louder than usual (it will only increase the physical sensation).

Sex Somewhere Famous

“Having sex in, near or looking at a national landmark turns an amazing experience into an extraordinary one,” says Cox. “You’re still not truly convinced you’re there, so everything seems surreal.” So do it on your hotel balcony overlooking the Hollywood sign, hook up in a quiet stairwell of the Louvre or get busy on your hike to the Grand Canyon. You will never forget it.

And, let's just say, it isn't looking good for the humans.

Is Michael Jordan The Greatest Basketball Player Ever?

Five Most Valuable Player awards. Six NBA Championships. Six Finals MVP awards. 14-time All Star. 10 Scoring Titles. Career averages of 30.1 PPG, 6.2 RPG, and 5.3 APG. Just based on these statistics and accomplishments, most people would be convinced that if Michael Jordan wasn't the greatest basketball player of all time, at least he'd be a close second. But it's not just numbers that make Jordan so special. Number 23 has been immortalized in sports circles everywhere because of his incredible love and passion for the game of basketball. 

No one wanted to win more than Michael Jordan, and few ever did. When making the documentary Michael Jordan to the Max, former Chicago Bulls coach Doug Collins said that in order to beat Jordan in a playoff series, you'd literally have to chop off his arms and legs, and even then you still might lose. Jordan played with legendary intensity and renowned passion that often frustrated opponents so badly that they'd resort to hard fouls and malicious play just to slow Jordan down.

Jordan stepped into the basketball spotlight in 1982 during the NCAA National Championship game against Georgetown. His University of North Carolina Tar Heels had been riding his stellar play all tournament, and although just a freshman, they looked to him in the waning moments of the game. Down by a single point with 17 seconds left, Jordan hit a 15-foot jumper to give the Tar Heels a 63-62 lead and clinch the National Championship. 

Jordan's stardom only grew after he was selected 3rd overall by the Chicago Bulls in the 1983-84 NBA draft where he immediately went on to win Rookie of the Year. Two years later, his mystique continued as he led the Bulls into the playoffs. In a series against the Boston Celtics, widely considered one of the best teams in NBA history, Jordan went into Boston Garden and embraced the hostile crowd. He lit up the Celtics for 63 points--something that had never happened in Celtics history--and although the game was lost, Jordan had permanently established himself as the star of the league.

In his seventh season in the NBA, Jordan finally won his first championship, averaging over 30 points per game during the playoffs. The Bulls repeated as champions the following season, and the season after that with Jordan leading the team in almost every statistical category, and leading the league in points scored each year. After taking a season off to try his hand at professional baseball, Jordan came back to the game more intelligent and mature. He didn't miss a beat, leading the Bulls to back-to-back-to-back titles in '96, '97, and '98 while providing incredible displays of athleticism, and talent along the way.

Aside from the titles, Jordan may be best known for his play 
in crunch time.When the game was on the line and Jordan had the ball, the Bulls would end up winning more often then not. His clutch performances have become a thing of legend because of the way he stepped up when it mattered most. He made over 25 game-winning jumpers, and countless more crunch time buckets that changed that outcome of the game. 

So it was fitting that for his final game in a Bulls uniform, a game six in the NBA finals against the Utah Jazz, Jordan had the ball in his hand while the clock ran down, trailing by one point. He made his move with about 9 seconds left, and as he crossed over Jazz guard Bryon Russell at the foul line and pulled up for a jumper, there was little doubt in anyone's mind that the shot would go in. And as if to close the book on a fairy-tale ending, Jordan sunk the shot and the Bulls won their 6th NBA title.

There never has, and probably never will be a player greater than Michael Jordan. He is a rare breed of athlete who combined elite athleticism and talent with supernatural intensity and focus. His drive, passion, and will to win are all but unmatchable. He scored at will, and made plays for his teammates. He was coachable and wasn't afraid of leadership responsibilities. And if there was ever a situation where the world would end unless someone made a jump-shot to save us from destruction, I would still call upon Michael Jordan to shoot it. And so he will continue to live on as the greatest basketball player who ever lived.

Transformers 4 Is Not A Kid Movie...There Will Be Blood...or Oil or you get the point

Whether you’re eagerly anticipating or dreading the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction – the fourth flick in Michael Bays’ franchise – you no doubt were hit with a heavy wave of nostalgia when Grimlock the Dinobot made his debut in the film’s Super Bowl spot.

Of course, the Transformers series has always banked on longtime fans yearning to revisit their youth, but this time around, Transformers 4 appears to be making that its primary audience. Over a year ago, not long after it was confirmedBay would return for the fourth film, the director promised it would completely redesign the franchise, and he wasn’t just talking about the robots. Transformers 4 also features an all-new cast, is set four years after the third film, and – according to actor Titus Welliver (the Man in Black on Lost) – it will have a darker, more mature tone.

Speaking with Nerdist, Welliver made it clear that he doesn’t consider Transformers 4to be a children’s movie:

“It’s a bit more of a darker vision of the ‘Transformers’ world… It’s not a kids’ movie, I’ll tell you that much.”
In the four years since Transformers 3, humans have no doubts about the Transformers’ existence, and it’s likely we as a species have come to consider both the Autobots and Decepticons threats. This increased paranoia about the Transformers might play into why Age of Extinction would be a darker addition to the series. The battles won’t just be between giant robots, but also over people’s fears.

If this is the case, then Kelsey Grammer’s “counter intelligence” agent fits right in. Cybertronian technology would be a massive asset for any world power, making the Autobots not only targets of enemy attacks but possible abuse from their supposed allies. This kind of political edge could be the “darker vision” Welliver is alluding to. Plus, this new level of secrecy would make it necessary for the Autobots to really be robots in disguise and would explain the redesigns.

Then again, turning Transformers 4 into less of a smash ‘n’ bash, popcorn flick and more of a dark political thriller doesn’t seem to add up with what we know of Age of Extinction‘s plot. (There’s nothing sophisticated or mature about the Dinobots, no matter how badass they look.) But Bay has continued to hammer home the point that “there won’t be any goofiness” in Transformers 4, so does that mean it’ll be a totally humorless entry catering to a more adult audience? Probably not.
What do you make of Welliver’s comments that Transformers 4 isn’t “a kids’ movie“? Would making the film more mature be the right direction for the franchise? Let us know your thoughts below!
