2NE1 will not appear in any year-end festivals


Recently, a rep of YG entertainment has stated that 2NE1 would not take part in any music festivals and events at the end of the year, even though their second studio album released in February was very successful.

They said, “It is an honor for a musician to be invited to a music festival, but we politely declined all the offers because we think it is time to focus on CL’s debut in the United States”.

2NE1 has experienced some big problems this year with Park Bom's drug scandal, Minzy's Instagram rumor. It seems like they need time to balance their spiritual lives.

However, CL will still collaborate with Diplo for a special performance at the Style Icon Awards (SIA) by CJ E&M.

YG fans are in rage against Ben Baller calling GD and CL 'Just 2 Asians'






Some YG fans on SNS are apparently in rage towards YG Family's friend 'Ben Baller' in his latest comment on SNS.

Blackjacks and VIPs came to know that CL and G-Dragon are going to film Skrillex ft. Diplo's 'Dirty Vibe' music video in LA on August 11.

In relation to this, Ben Baller, who a fan thought is supposed to be filming as well mentioned him on twitter and asked, "can I just be passerby in that Dirty Vibe MV? Cast me please..lmao." However, Ben's response to her ignites hateful comments as he wrote, "it's not my video. In fact the person who's video it's for isn't even in it tmrw. Just 2 Asians and a white boy... Oh and extras".


The 'Just 2 Asians' is apparently mentioning GD and CL. Fans know where they are coming from as Ben Baller is known to be a close and considered friend by YG artists and even calling them his 'YG Fam' in his recent deleted tweets. Fans are apparently assuming that Ben Baller isn't casted in the said MV and acted like this. Moreover, Ben also started unfollowing YG artists such as GD, CL, Taeyang, Soojoo,  and more.

It wouldn't be a big problem but fans feel that Ben disgraces their friendship in his acts. What do you think?
