+ New Kids On The Block‘s Joey McIntyre completed yesterday’s Boston Marathon before two bombs exploded, killing at least three and wounding what’s reported at more than 100 people. He tweeted the detonations happened “about 5 minutes after I finished,” and added “I’m OK, but I’m sure there are many hurt.” (Billboard)

+ Kanye West is currently working on his sixth studio album, though few details have leaked about it… until now. Turns out Daft Punk was recently in their Paris studio with ‘Ye. “It was very raw: He was rapping — kind of screaming primally, actually,” Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter said. (RapFix)

+ Rihanna canceled her show in Houston last night. Promoter Live Nation announced the show was nixed “as a result of illness.” This is the third “Diamonds Tour” date that has been scrapped. We hope RiRi’s OK! (E!)
