ABC/Image Group LAA motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Beyoncé by the estate of late New Orleans rapper Anthony Barre has been denied. 

Barre -- also known as Messy Mya -- was fatally shot in 2010.  

You can hear Barre's voice at the start of Bey's "Formation" visual, saying "What happened at the New Orleans...," and then again further into the clip, saying "B****, I'm back by popular demand."

Barre's sister, Angel Barre, filed against Bey in February, alleging the singer used her brother's voice in her "Formation" video without permission.  

Beyoncé's lawyer filed a counter motion, claiming that the producer of the "Formation" video licensed the YouTube videos from which they got the samples, before Angel had herself appointed the administrator of her brother's estate. 

There's a lot of difficult to understand legalese, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, U.S. District Judge Nannette Jolivette Brown essentially found had made enough of a case that it can move forward, and Beyoncé's motion to dismiss the whole this is premature.  

Stay tuned.

Tim Mosenfelder/Getty ImagesFans at Wednesday's Kendrick Lamar DAMN. concert in Detroit got quite the surprise when none other than J. Cole stepped out onstage. 

Billboard reports the rapper performed three songs -- "Deja Vu," "A Tale of 2 Cities" and "No Role Modelz." 

Since last year, it's been rumored that a collaborative album from both rappers was in the works, so perhaps their recent meetup is a positive sign that the project could indeed happen.  

Kendrick's next tour stop takes place tonight at the United Center in Chicago, IL.  

J. Cole's 4 Your Eyez Only world tour is currently underway as well. He's expected to perform in Toronto, Canada Thursday.

Vittorio Zunino Celotto/Getty ImagesWednesday marked two years since the death of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown.  

To mark the sad day, an Instagram video of the once-aspiring artist singing Adele's "Hello" was posted on the bobbikristinaserenityhouse account. 

The caption reads, "Today we remember you #BobbiKristina #LoveShouldnt Hurt. SAY HER NAME -- NEVER FORGET IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE IS IN IMMEDIATE DANGER PLEASE CALL 911! We have established a relationship with The National Domestic Violence Hotline."  

Bobbi Kristina Serenity House, founded after Bobbi's death, is an emergency and resource center to help women affected by domestic violence.  

Bobbi Kristina was found unresponsive in a bathtub in her home outside Atlanta in January 2015 and died at age 22 of pneumonia after spending six months in a coma, having never regained consciousness.

Bobbi Kristina's conservator filed a lawsuit against her late partner, Nick Gordon, alleging, among other things, that he physically assaulted her.  

Gordon has denied any involvement in Bobbi Kristina's death, but last September, he was found liable in a wrongful death civil suit filed in Bobbi's death, after he failed to appear in court to answer the suit.  

Gordon was ordered to pay $36 million to Bobbi Kristina's estate in the wrongful death suit. He also was arrested last June after allegedly assaulting his current girlfriend.

Image Group LA/ABCChrissy Teigen wants 1-year-old daughter Luna to develop a healthy relationship with food.  

The model, cookbook author and wife of John Legend tells People magazine that although "it's hard sometimes" to decide between organic fare and junk food, eating healthy is the best bet for their growing child. 

"She loves french fries, like, she's a kid. I don't want to deprive her. I don't want her to not be able to eat French fries or not be able to enjoy a piece of candy. Everything is in balance," she explains.

Luna also appears to take after her mom in the kitchen, already displaying a liking to cooking -- or at least what appears to be the makings of a shrewd condiment connoisseur.

"She's just kind of learning about sauces so now with her french fries she looks around and knows there's ketchup somewhere," says Chrissy. "I'm like, 'You used to eat your french fries plain!'"

Even with Chrissy and John's glamorous celebrity lifestyle, with lavish clothes and famous friends, the proud momma says she wants Luna to have a normal childhood, like Chrissy experienced herself growing up: "I want her to go and play in the PlayPlace and I want her to do those kids things."

Michael Ochs Archive/Getty ImagesA jury in Los Angeles has awarded super producer Quincy Jones almost $9.5 million in damages in Jones' lawsuit against the estate of Michael Jackson, Variety reports, finding that the estate underpaid Jones royalties he was due.

Jones filed suit against the estate in 2013 seeking $30 million on royalties he claimed he was owed on the late King of Pop's posthumous earnings, both for Jones' work on Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad, and on the concert documentary This Is It as well as on money due from two Cirque du Soliel shows using music he had been involved in.

In a statement after the verdict was announced, obtained by ABC News, Jones said, "I, along with the team I assembled with Michael, took great care and purpose in creating these albums, and it has always given me a great sense of pride and comfort that three decades after they were originally recorded, these songs are still being played in every corner of the world.  This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created.  Although this judgement is not the full amount that I was seeking, I am very grateful that the jury decided in our favor in this matter.  I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists’ rights overall.”

L-R: Lenny S, Rick Ross, The-Dream; Lauren Gesswein for VH1TV shows about the behind-the-scenes work of making a singing star are nothing new.  

But VH1's new music competition series, SIGNED, aims to do the same for rising hip-hop and R&B artists.

The-Dream, who stars on the show, says SIGNED isn't a rip-off of Sean "Diddy" CombsMaking the Band.  

"No cheesecake walking. Ain't nobody got time for all that," he tells Billboard.  

Dream adds, "But I think the one thing that was great with MTV's Making the Band was that we did see people from the culture."

"We didn't notice it until it was off TV, until it was this kind of gap between what Puff had done and what was actually going on. We knew that it would have to be a great machine and platform to be able to have something like this."

Rick Ross and Roc Nation executive Lenny S join The-Dream as talent scouts on SIGNED. Both Dream and Lenny tell Billboard that Rick's ear for music, and his sense of humor, are exceptional.  

Dream says, "His music is long stand. His ears are longstanding. He's just a pretty f****** funny guy, man. All of us are, in our own unique ways, but what we got out of him was a lot of life that you probably have never seen from Rick Ross the rap god."  

Lenny adds, "He ended up being really, really, really comical. He has a great personality."  

There's a sneak peek of SIGNED posted now on VH1.  You can catch SIGNED on VH1 Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET.

ABC/Randy HolmesIt’s only fitting that Mariah Carey, the unofficial “Queen of Christmas,” would be involved in a new Christmas-themed film.

On her Twitter page Wednesday, Mariah debuted the new trailer for The Star, an animated flick that explores the story of the first Christmas -- from the animals’ perspective. Mariah won’t be voicing any of the characters, but her new single, also called “The Star,” will be featured in the film.

Kelly Clarkson is among the voices, along with Gina Rodriguez, Tracy Morgan, Keegan-Michael Key and Oprah Winfrey.

The Star is set to hit theaters November 10.

ABC/Randy HolmesTrey Songz is going for it.

The R&B artist recently divulged to fans that he made a pass at Halle Berry via Twitter, writing, "Just slid in @halleberry dm's for the culture, but really just for me."  

He continued, "Pray to God she respond," using the praying hands emoji for added effect.  

The tweet gained over 20 thousand likes since, but Halle has yet to respond to the singer's bold move.  

Still, she's currently busy promoting her forthcoming movie, Kidnap, so it's possible the actress may slide into Trey's DMs once things slow down.

Getty Images via ABCRihanna is taking her Global Partnership for Education ambassador duties very seriously.  

The "Work" singer met with French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron, Wednesday in France in support of the Global Partnership for Education, and world education in general.  

Rih tweeted her gratitude to the French president and first lady, writing, "Thank you Mr. President @EmmanuelMacron and Madame First Lady for the incredible meeting and passion for global and girls education!" 

The meeting comes after Riri's tweet to President Macron this June, asking if he would commit to funding education.

Rihanna's been on a mission to gather support from world leaders in an effort to help finance education around the globe.  

She traveled last month to Malawi -- considered one of the world's poorest countries -- to advocate for a better education system in the East African country. 

Rihanna also created the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 to support and develop world-class educational programs in her home country of Barbados and elsewhere.  

Earlier this year, she accepted Harvard University's prestigious Humanitarian of the Year award in recognition of her efforts.

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images For Roc NationJAY-Z and Kanye West's relationship will be subject of an upcoming documentary titled Public Enemies: Jay-Z vs Kanye.  

A trailer for the film, which is set to air July 31 on Channel 4 in the U.K., shows a montage of scenes featuring stills of both rappers hanging out together during happier times before their descent into a "bitter rivalry," as the clip's narrator declares it.  

Previously unseen footage and testimony from cultural figures like music journalist Touré will be featured in the documentary as well. 

Jay and Ye's business partnership dates back to 2000, when the latter gained a production credit, via the former's Roc-A-Fella Records, on Beanie Sigel's song "The Truth."  

Both continued working together on various projects, but their relationship appears to have turned sour, particularly with the recent report that Kanye ended his exclusive deal with JAY-Z's Tidal in early July.  

As previously reported, Kanye has been unhappy with the streaming subscription service for a long time.  

His lawyer reportedly sent a letter to Tidal a month ago claiming he was owed more than $3 million, including a bonus check for the one-and-a-half million new subscribers he secured for the company from his Life of Pablo CD release last year. 

Tidal allegedly claimed that Yeezy, one of the company’s 16 artist/owners, is in breach of his contract because he owes the service a number of videos.

Terence Patrick/CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc.Usher made a surprise visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden on Tuesday night for the latest edition of “Carpool Karaoke.” The segment, which may have been filmed some time ago, made no mention of the singer’s recent scandal and went right into the music.

Seconds after James stops to pick up Usher, they’re singing “Yeah,” and tackling the Ludacris rap part together.

James asks him about dancing and popping bottles and stops so James can show Usher his moves. Next they go off on “Let It Burn.”

While they’re driving, Usher thinks they passed his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, so James goes back around and they find it. Usher says he thinks it’s weird to have a star on the sidewalk where people can walk on it. When they get out, they see that it could use a cleaning, so the two are soon polishing it up as James cautions people nearby to be respectful and walk around the star.

Next, they’re singing, “Caught Up.” Usher tells James that he’s a vegan but having some difficulty.

“I like beef, I like chicken. But I'm a vegan,” he says.

To which James replies, “Just so you know, that means you're not a vegan.”

After a brief take on “I Don’t Mind,” there is a lively discussion about Usher calling his woman a b**** which James says he definitely could not do, though Usher seems to be OK with it. “You don't introduce her as your b****. It's just what you say between you and her. It's friendly banter,” he says.

They help a motorist by pushing his stalled car, then close the segment with a bouncy take on “OMG.”

The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS.

ABC/Fred WatkinsIt's no secret that Usher is currently embroiled in a tawdry STD scandal.

Even though the R&B artist has yet to respond to allegations that he knowingly infected several women with the herpes virus without telling them, Joe Budden chimed in on the news during a recent episode of his Complex show, Everyday Struggle

"This is one of them industry rumors that have been there for a long time, but you just ignore. This ain't really news," Joe explains.  

"But what I will say is anytime I've ever met Usher, he's been really amazing, so, I don't really wanna talk bad about him. He's such a great guy and great person and I look up to him and what he's done in his tenure in just music."

Usher is at the center of a scandal stemming from 2012. Legal documents first obtained by Radar Online revealed that the singer allegedly infected a woman with the herpes virus.  

The woman allegedly sued Usher because of it and the singer reportedly settled the case by paying her $1.1 million.  

However, more women now claim usher also gave them the STD and are allegedly seeking legal help from attorney Lisa Bloom, who's currently assisting Blac Chyna in her ongoing troubles with Rob Kardashian.

As previously reported, one of Usher's accusers is reportedly seeking $20 million in damages from the superstar. 

Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster, who replied to the scandal on Instagram last week to state that she's in good health, divorced in 2009.  

In 2015, Usher married music executive Grace Miguel.

L-R: Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake; Kevin Mazur/Getty Images via ABCIt appears that Young Money label mates Drake and Lil Wayne are now bonded for life, in a different way.

Fans noticed a recent Instagram picture of Drizzy sporting a brand-new tattoo of Weezy's likeness on his left arm. 

The "Gyalchester" artist also posted another photo of Lil Wayne on Instagram, with the simple caption, "King."

Lil Wayne signed Drake to Young Money in 2009, which helped propel the latter's rap career and became the start of the duo's friendship and work relationship.  Their latest collaboration is their featured vocals on Nicki Minaj's "No Frauds."

ABC/Randy HolmesTinashe could have a dangerously obsessed fan on her hands.

TMZ reports that the "Flame" singer is so "petrified" of an alleged fan named Martin Murphy, who reportedly drove all the way to Los Angeles from Boston to meet the star, that she's gotten a restraining order against him. 

Murphy is allegedly "convinced" that he and Tinashe are married.  

Now, according to TMZ, the recording artist is in fear of her life because he's working to have his Massachusetts license to carry a firearm reinstated. 

TMZ also says Murphy's dad is actively helping to keep his son away from Tinashe, stating that Murphy "suffered a psychotic break and is unable to distinguish reality from fantasy."

Murphy's father reportedly believes that Tinashe in "in clear danger," so a judge has ordered the 25-year-old to stay "at least 100 yards" away from the performer and her parents.

The only other rap artist to spend more weeks than Jay at number one on the Billboard 200 is Eminem, who's tallied 31 total weeks at #1.

ABC/Fred WatkinsMonday, attorney Lisa Bloom claimed three women reached out to her for legal help against Usher, alleging the R&B singer infected them with the herpes virus.  

Now, one of the singer's accusers is reportedly seeking $20 million "for emotional harm, medical bills and punitive damages," according to TMZ. The unidentified woman previously sought $10 million from the entertainer.  

The woman, presently identified as Jane Doe, claims that she went to get tested for herpes after legal documents from 2012 surfaced last week, which allege Usher knowingly infected another woman with the sexually transmitted disease without telling her.  

That individual subsequently sued the recording artist and was awarded $1.1 million from him at the time.   

When news of Usher's 2012 scandal came to light last week, he began to trend on social media, though he still has yet to publicly respond.  

However, ex-wife Tameka Foster, replied to the scandal on Instagram last week, letting everyone know that the alleged lawsuit has "NOTHING" to do with her and that she's in good health. 

Usher and Tameka divorced in 2009. They share two sons: Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.

In 2015, Usher married music executive Grace Miguel
