*While chatting with Wendy Williams recently, Remy Ma opened up more about her prison life and who she kept in connect with her while she was incarcerated.

Also, Ma talked about her upcoming music. She’s dropping a mixtape appropriately titled, “I’m Around.” This is while she’s in the studio working on her next studio album.

And maybe she’ll be collaborating with the celebrity friends who held her down while she was in prison — shouting out Keyshia Cole and 50 Cent.

“I did more phone calls to people. I spoke to DJ Khaled on the phone. 50 Cent sent me wonderful letters for my P.O. Like personally signed them saying like [telling the judge] if you grant her appeal she’ll be fine.”

She added, “and Keyshia Cole gave me thousands of thousands of dollars like here ‘this is for your son, this is for your lawyer.’ That to me meant more than coming to visit me.”

But there are other celebrities she is rumored to not get along with either. She opened up about her “alleged” feud with current “Queen of Rap,” Nicki Minaj.

“That’s not true. We speak very often. We speak often and I’m very proud of her,” she said. “She wishes me the best and I wish her best all the time.”

While her lawsuit with Makeda Barnes Joseph — the woman she shot — is settled, she has another regret she revealed to Williams.

“I believe everyone who has went through any turmoil in their life have some regrets. I definitely know that keeping a smaller circle and keeping people around that love you genuinely. It just made me more wiser about my surroundings.”

Kanye West Tells GQ He’s Like Michelangelo in BTS Video

kanye west,

*Kanye West is constantly calling himself out as the best! But as a perfectionist, he definitely strives for the best and beyond.

He opened up to GQ about his perfectionism in a behind-the-scenes video while shooting and interviewing for his August cover story.

As for some advice on how to  be a perfectionist, he said everyone should use their voices to their best ability.

“If you’re given a voice, if you’re given an opportunity to have a voice, you have to take that seriously out of appreciation for the opportunity given,” he said.

But as a perfectionist, nothing is ever good enough for him. He wants to strive to be better — and be the greatest — even at a higher level.

“For me, it’s a fight. Most people are just satisfied with, ‘It’s good.’ Most people are satisfied at like just a 10, or something,” he explained. “It’s not to just stop at 10. You know, 10 is ground zero; perfection is ground zero. We need to take things to a genius level, that’s when you do stuff that’s perfect, that’s past what’s expected.”

At the end of the video — copyrighted and taken down by Conde Nast — West compared himself to famous sculptor, Michelangelo.

“Michelangelo decides he wants to sculpt, there could be a bunch of sculptors that are like, ‘Oh, no, you’re a painter,’” he says. “But he’s Michelangelo. And I am Kanye West.”
