Mick Jagger and Keith Richards appeared to be involved in a jokey spat during a Rolling Stones gig earlier this week. The band kicked off their latest tour in Santiago, Chile on Wednesday night (February 3) where they played their 1967 track 'She's A Rainbow' for the first time in 18 years. During a rendition of 'Satisfaction', Jagger bumped into Richards before the pair engaged in a brief, friendly tussle. Watch footage below at the 6.40 mark. The Stones have begun their South American leg at the Estadio Nacional in Chile and in the run up to the show, the band asked fans to choose the track that they would play during a request section of their performance, via the band's website. 'She's A Rainbow' - originally taken from their 1976 album 'Their Satanic Majesties Request' - was played for the first time since 1998 and, reportedly, only the 11th time in their entire history. You can watch the band play the track here.

Record producer LA Reid has said that he first signed Justin Bieber up for a record deal because he was "beautiful, like a woman". Reid - who has worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Kanye West - signed Bieber to Island Records in October 2008, when the singer was just 14 years old. The music mogul was introduced to Bieber by Usher. He describes first meeting the future star in his new memoir Sing To Me. "At four on the dot, Usher walked into my office with this adorable fourteen-year-old boy," Reid writes, as reported by Huffington Post. "This kid was beautiful, like a woman can be beautiful and men rarely are, and he turned it on as soon as he stepped into the room." "I could see immediately that Justin's hair would be every bit as important as his songs, his voice his face, or his presence. Justin was simply beautiful - his superpower was his face". LA Reid also claims in his book that Michael Jackson used to laugh at videos of Prince making mistakes. Reid describes Jackson showing him footage of a 1983 James Brown concert where both himself and Prince joined the star onstage. The passage reads: "Prince [couldn’t] make his guitar work, frantically stripping off his shirt and trying tricks with the microphone stand and making all these poses. After Michael’s dazzling star turn, Prince fell as flat as he could, and Michael enjoyed laughing at the video." Reid says that Jackson then showed him another video of Prince. "After that, he put on a scene from Prince’s movie Under The Cherry Moon, the artsy black-and-white bomb he made after 'Purple Rain' and he laughed some more at Prince."

Beyonce has responded to claims by two filmmakers that she used footage from a documentary they made in her new 'Formation' music video without their permission. 'Formation' was released on Saturday, with its video shot in both Los Angeles and New Orleans. Following the video's premiere online, filmmaker Chris Black and directed by Abteen Bagheri took to Twitter to claim that the clip included footage from their 2014 documentary about New Orleans called That B.E.A.T. Black wrote: "New Beyonce video used hella clips from the doc I produced and directed by @abteen ...but why?!?!" Bagheri added: "I'm not mad. It's the sad reality of the music business. Doesn't affect my friends' and my work, but not cool." Following the allegations, Beyonce's representatives issued a statement to The Fader claiming that they did indeed have permission to use the footage. The statement reads: "The documentary footage was used with permission and licensed from the owner of the footage. They were given proper compensation. The footage was provided to us by the filmmaker's production company. The filmmaker is listed in the credits for additional photography direction. We are thankful that they granted us permission." 'Formation' director Melina Matsoukas also thanked the filmmakers via Twitter, writing: "Must give much love to the beautiful NOLA footage shot and directed by @abteen and @lkeber to make #FORMATION whole." Black later told Fader that he and Bagheri had received emails from another director named Lily Keber, who documentary footage had also appeared in the 'Formation' video. Black also stated that they did not own the rights to the footage as the film was commissioned by Nokia in partnership with Sundance film festival. "I love Beyoncé," Black added. "I still think she's dope and I have no ill will or feelings towards her or anybody but at the end of the day we have to respect other filmmakers who are working just as hard... Why use the footage from the doc we did? She has a larger budget than we did and they gave no credit to the filmmakers. If I hadn't said anything about this would you have known where it came from?" Bagheri later drew a line under the dispute by telling Fader: "It seems they've given us credit now, which is all that was important to me." Watch Bagheri and Black's documentary beneath.

US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend, appearing in a comedy sketch with Curb Your Enthusiasm star and guest host Larry David. David and Sanders appeared in a skit that spoofed Titanic, while David also appeared as Sanders in a sketch that spoofed his Curb Your Enthusiasm show. Watch both sketches below. Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig has urged US voters not to believe the 'unelectable' hype around Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Koenig performed with Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth at a Sanders rally in Iowa City last weekend, where he also spoke to CNN about his support of the politician. Following the results of the Iowa Caucus last Monday, Koenig shared a post on his Instagram page continuing his support of Sanders. "Shoutout to my favorite singer: Bernie Sanders. He came from 50 points behind to tie Hillary Clinton in Iowa," Stereogum reports the post began. Getty He continued: "Disagree with him all you want but don’t believe the "unelectable" hype. They say elections are decided by independents in swing states. Imagine you're an independent voter alienated by both parties – which major candidate has more potential to speak to you than Bernie?" "He is the only candidate who comes from outside the two-party system. He can win," Koenig concluded. "Extra respect to the 84% of young ppl in Iowa who voted for Bernie. Let's hope you get to spend your adult life in a world with leaders who support your values."

Rapper Jay Electronica has hit out at Kendrick Lamar in an online rant. The hip-hop star was hosting a Periscope live video stream this weekend, answering questions from fans. Fact reports that when asked to play a Lamar track, he declined and said "fuck that" before naming 'Cartoons & Cereal' as the only Kendrick song he likes. While Electronica did refer to Lamar as his "brother", he also said "Kendrick would tell you himself he couldn’t body me. Kendrick is my son. Kendrick is my baby. Kendrick wishes he could be me". Electronica also mocked 50 Cent, while referring to Drake as "our brother". Watch Electronica's Periscope live stream below. Kendrick Lamar recently revealed how he is determined to win big at this year's Grammy Awards, after being nominated and featured in 11 categories. In a recent cover feature in Billboard, Lamar speaks of his rise to fame, his gritty upbringing and his aim to win big at the 56th Awards ceremony, saying: "I want to win them all". Richard Johnson/NME He goes on to talk about his previous loss at the 2014 Grammys, after being nominated for seven awards by not winning any of the categories. He lost out in some of the categories - including best rap album - to Ryan Macklemore, who took home four awards. “The Grammy defeats would have been upsetting to me if I’d known that was my best work, if I had nothing new to offer,” he says. “'Good Kid, M.A.A.D City' is great work, but it’s not my best work. To Pimp a Butterfly is great. I’m talking about the connection the record made. 'Good Kid, M.A.A.D City' made a connection. But 'To Pimp a Butterfly' made a bigger connection.” “It’s bigger than me" he continues on the impact of him winning Best Album on urban music at large. "When we think about the Grammys, only Lauryn Hill and Outkast have won album of the year. This would be big for hip-hop culture at large.”
