It was a Cash Money family affair at last night's BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards
Wanna know reason No. 37,405 why pop stars are seriously no #JustLikeUs? Whereas normal people's family photos usually consist of us looking all awk in front of European monuments whose histories we're TBH a little #unclear on, a celeb like Nicki Minaj's Kodak moments depict the Maybach twerker with the flyest manicure on the block looking flawless while casually seated next to her Cash Money "family," aka Nicki's "High School" collaborator Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Mack Maine. So yeah, just about the polar opposite of me and my parents standing in front of the Berlin Wall.
After racking up a ton of awards, the "Love More" rapper took a moment pose with her "fam," and naturally Instagrammed said moment for posterity, captioning: "#bmirnbhiphopawards like 7 awards tonite i think. I llost count. And cash money is being honored. Thx bmi." Oh, just a measly seven trophies, sitting next to my super famous crew, NBD -- shyeah right! P.S., don't think we weren't gonna comment on that perfect tights game you've got going on, Nicki. To quote your Busta Rhymes collab: #TWERKIT.

Lil Wayne is heading home after being hospitalized.
+ Great news! According to Young Money president Mack Maine, Lil Wayne went home yesterday after spending six days in Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles for a seizure. "@LilTunechi has been officially released and is headed home....God is great," Mack tweeted. (MTV News)
+ Remember how we reported that Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience may be a two-parter? Well (pats back), IT'S TRUE! "I gotta clear a rumor up. This whole thing about this being the first half of the album is true," JT told Ryan Seacrest during his album release show in Los Angeles last night. (MTV News)
+ One Direction has revealed the name of their forthcoming 3-D film: It's called "This Is Us." Directioners were even invited to go on an internet scavenger hunt that revealed parts of the movie's title. The concert/documentary film hits theaters Aug. 30. (MTV News)
+ Speaking of films, Rihanna has one of her own in the works. "Rihanna 777" will air on Fox on May 6. It documents a promo jaunt for the Unapologetic tour in which journalists and fans traveled with RiRi on a Boeing 777 for a one-week tour around the world. As you may recall, things got kinda out of hand. (MTV News)
+ Praiiiisse! Azealia Banks and Angel Haze have made peace (at least for now)! The pair began a Twitter beef back in December, but Haze said it was over during a SXSW interview. Azealia has even sent a nice tweet over to Haze. (RapFix)
+ File this under "WE KNEW IT!": Taylor Swift pretty much confirmed "I Knew You Were Trouble." is about One Direction's Harry Styles. "It's not hard to access that emotion when the person the song is directed to is standing by the side of the stage watching," she said of her Brit Awards performance where Styles was watching. (E!)
