– Score one for Kanye West. Yeezy has won the lawsuit pertaining to his 2007 jam ‘Stronger.’ Rapper Vince P sued West, claiming he played a version of the song to one of Ye’s business associates and the rapper then stole it. The judge noted that West did have the chance to copy the song, but the versions are not similar enough to prove it. Case dismissed. [MTV]

– Directioners, we’ve got good news. One Direction will host their very own MTV special, ‘One Direction: My First Time’ on Aug. 30 at 11PM. In the VMAs-centric ep, 1D will revisit some of the most memorable VMA performances to date. They will also share some of their very own VMA memories. [MTV]

– Sean Kingston, frequent bro of Justin Bieber, has dropped a new track, called ‘Money.’ It features Dom Kennedy and it’s an uptempo yet chill jam that cross-pollinates hip-hop and R&B. Take a listen. [YouTube]

– Tired of the “Chavril” hype yet? Too bad. It’s only just getting started. Listen to what it would sound like if Avril Lavigne and new fiancé Chad Kroeger did a song together. It’s Canadian combustion and the ultimate marital mashup, and it might just be so bad that it’s actually good. [Buzzfeed]

– Season 4 of ‘Glee‘ kicks off in a few weeks and on a new night – it’s now on Thursdays, Gleeks! There’s a new cast photo. There’s some additions – Kate Hudson! Sarah Jessica Parker! — so check out the latest look. [Ace Showbiz]

– Skrillex and Damian Marley joined forces earlier this year for the song ‘Make It Bun Dem,’ which meshed the latters vocals with the former’s DJ skills. Now, they’ve created ‘Make It Bun Dem After Hours,’ an EP featuring six songs by different producers doing their thing and putting their, er, spin on the original. [The Boombox]
