There's enough gossip going around the world of electronic music that it probably deserves its own TMZ, Gawker, and Perez Hilton. We keep track of the drama, the beef, the LOLs, the dramatic build-ups, and the tragic drops so you don't have to. Now, let's see who killed it this week.

WAKA FLAKA AOKI
Hold tight because the end is near. This week it was announced that Waka Flocka will be joining Steve Aoki on a US winter tour. Where did we get this info from you ask? A website called Run the Trap. Duh.

BLAME IT ON THE RAVE
Just when you thought you have had enough. We just want you to know that that Fab Morvan, the member of Milli Vanilli that is still alive, has an EDM project. Can you lip sync to trap music? Asking for a friend.

CALVIN HARRIS MAKES IT TO #1....
No not on Beatport. On the Forbes money making charts y'all! He is officially the highest payed DJ out there right now, earning an estimated 46 million dollars a year. Get that Rihanna money!

EMOJI BEEF
The new Katy Perry video for "Roar" is out and it seems to be a lot like Dillon Francis's "Messages" video (according to Dillon Francis). Claim your emojis people. Don't be a victim. This can happen to anyone.
You be the judge.
RIFF RAFF GETS ARRESTED FOR DRUG POSESSION THEN GETS SHOT 
Riff Raff does drugs? NO WAY!

It was a big week for Jody, who is also trying to become one with Justin Bieber. 

GET YOUR FLAT IRONS READY
Krewella teams up with Blink182 and Fall Out Boy. Yes you read that correctly. This is a real thing that is actually happening right now as we speak, further confirming that dubstep is the new hardcore. This is bound to make several hundred emo kids even more severely depressed.

BARGAIN RAVING
Last week both Ultra and Hard announced payment plans but this week Electric Zoo is going Groupon. Those New Yorkers are always trying to be better than everyone.

GRIMES SHOCKS THE WORLD OF DANCE MUSIC
Actually no one is shocked at all, and if they are they probably don't use the internet. On Boiler Room, you are supposed to play what you love and show off your favorite music so why was anyone surprised when Grimes started playing Taylor Swift and the Venga Boys... from Richie Hawtin's villa... in Ibiza? She makes it very clear that she loves that stuff. Also Richie Hawtin booked Grimes to DJ. So yeah. 

PARIS TAKES THE WHITE ISLE BY STORM
Everyone's favorite heiress has started her residency at the famed Amnesia club in Ibiza, at a party called Foam & Diamonds. Cue auto sync, foam, and inevitable nausea. God help us all.

BEYONCE BITES AGAIN
Last week the internet almost exploded after Beyonce got a new haircut. But really, who wore it better? And who wore it first? And who knew Bey and Dips were separated at birth? We got your back Diplo!
