Looks like Drake and Future have decided to play nice. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Drake had booted Future from his upcoming arena trek over disparaging remarks the Atlanta rapper made about Drake's latest album during an interview with Billboard. But the two rapper-singers have since buried the hatchet and on Thursday, Future announced that he would indeed appear on Drake's 39-city tour. "I am set to continue as planned with Drake and Miguel on the Would You Like a Tour?

Re "Farmers caught up in food safety net," Feb. 24 In the future we all might be eating Soylent Green. Remember that movie about the overstressed, overcrowded planet with scarce food supplies and strange regulations not based on common sense but on economic control? The food safety advocates and federal regulators whose efforts to protect the public may end up shutting down organic farms should take an organic gardening class. Grow some food and cook it, preferably without latex gloves on.

For those who've seen the buzziest of buzzy holiday movies, Spike Jonze's “Her,” you probably left the theater with much to think about. One of the biggest questions, at least from a filmmaking standpoint: How did Jonze and his team arrive at the future we see on the screen? Infinitely relatable though gently different, the Los Angeles of Jonze's unspecified future occupies a new and exciting place in cinematic history--and the history, as it where, of futurism itself. “Her's” L.A.” is a million miles from “Blade Runner,” but it also not entirely a utopia.

PHOENIX - Andre Ethier said Wednesday morning that it was too early to say how the Dodgers' sale could affect his future. Ethier is under contract this year for $10.95 million. He will be eligible for free agency at the end of the season. He said he wasn't sure if he was any more optimistic about remaining a Dodger beyond this season. “It's way too early to even play those games in your mind right now,” he said. “It's a proven group, a lot of proven winners and people who want to win, but we still don't know what their goals are going to be coming in. It's that whole thing of don't look too far ahead, just be focused on right now. If we do our job, then everything will work out.” But Ethier sounded as if he would be open to discussing a contract extension during the season.

Music industry rule No. 101: Never tick off the headliner inviting you on the road. According to reports, Drake has dropped Future from his upcoming arena trek, a move that could turn into a $1.5-million feud between the two artists. The reason?

In a conversation earlier this month to preview his forthcoming album, “Honest,” Future shared his thoughts on Drake's latest chart-topper, “Nothing Was the Same,” with Billboard associate editor Erika Ramierz.

There's a sample on the new Bad Brains album, "Into the Future," that perfectly captures the influential D.C. punk band's early contact with audiences: "We figured if they didn't mind us being black, we didn't mind them being white. " The statement, like the band, is an incitement, an acknowledgment of the occasionally uneasy relationship among punk, metal and race in the genre's formative years. It didn't hurt that Bad Brains were one of the most incendiary of the first-generation hard-core punk bands, and the band went on to influence a wealth of recent acts, including the Beastie Boys, TV on the Radio and the Mars Volta.

Pop & Hiss finds it unlikely that we'll hear a better R&B slow jam this year than " Body Party ," the sleek space-soul ballad in which Ciara tells her real-life boyfriend Future that her body is his party -- and "nobody's invited but you. " Produced with drowsy sensuality by Mike Will Made It (who also helmed Miley Cyrus' " We Can't Stop "), "Body Party" currently sits at No. 3 on Billboard's R&B chart, which is precisely two slots below where the song deserves to be. But Ciara, she's no spoilsport, so Friday night she and Future both turned up to do "Body Party" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Rick Perry's communications chief Ray Sullivan says the Texas governor remains open to the possibility of another run for president in 2016 and has learned many "valuable" lessons about the intensity, pace and scrutiny that candidates must endure. The subject came up -- unprompted -- in a conversation with reporters in the lobby of the North Charleston hotel where Perry had just announced  he was leaving the presidential race. Sullivan was asked whether the governor planned to run for re-election in Texas.
