Library of Congress to host Gloria Gaynor disco party

Historical texts and a disco ball?  They’re two items that you wouldn’t think to put together, but The Library of Congress will be the site of a disco in a few weeks.

Gloria Gaynor, whose disco hit “I Will Survive” was added to the National Recording Registry last year, will headline the library’s “Bibliodiscotheque,” The Washington Post reported.

Arrest after shooting involving hip-hop star Fetty Wap

A hip-hop promoter was charged on Monday with pistol-whipping someone during an altercation that included a shooting involving hip-hop star Fetty Wap in his hometown that left three people wounded, authorities said.

The shooting happened outside a 24-hour deli in Paterson early Sunday. The names of the victims weren't released, but police said Fetty Wap wasn't injured in the shooting.

Authorities charged Raheem Thomas with assault and weapons offenses after investigators said he struck a victim in the head and face with a gun he was not legally allowed to carry. He was not charged in the shooting.

The Paterson resident is CEO and owner of Muscle Team Entertainment, a company that promotes hip-hop. It was unclear whether he had an attorney to comment on his behalf. An email seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

A photo posted this weekend to Thomas' Instagram account showed a masked man wearing what appears to be Fetty Wap's signature "1738" pendant.

"Just to set the record straight, I personally didn't take (Fetty Wap's) chain," Thomas posted.

Fetty Wap's crew in New Jersey is known as the Remy Boyz 1738, named for the Remy Martin 1738 brand of cognac.

Thomas in January also posted a rap song and video on YouTube that was disrespectful of Fetty Wap.

There was no word on what led to the altercation, but police said Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, and several friends became involved in a heated altercation with another group inside the deli.

The argument spilled outside, where shots were fired. Three victims were taken to a hospital, but their conditions weren't immediately released. The investigation is ongoing.

Man charged in theft of Legend's bag, $25K cufflinks at JFK

Authorities have cuffed a man charged with stealing Grammy winner John Legend's Louis Vuitton bag containing $25,000 Cartier cufflinks from an airport luggage cart in New York.

District Attorney Richard Brown says 63-year-old Agustin Hilario swiped the bag Thursday when it was momentarily left unattended on a luggage cart at Kennedy Airport.

Brown says Hilario was identified through surveillance camera footage. He was arrested on charges including grand larceny and possession of stolen property.

Hilario was awaiting arraignment in Queens criminal court Friday. It's not known if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.

Legend is a singer, songwriter, musician and actor who co-starred in the film "La La Land."

The prosecutor says Legend's possessions, including the $25,000 panther-head cufflinks, were returned to him.

John Mayer's new single is ode to ex-girlfriend Katy Perry

John Mayer's new single, "Still Feel Like Your Man," is about ex-girlfriend Katy Perry.

Lyrics for the upbeat, but wistful single include, "I still keep your shampoo in my shower in case you want to wash your hair." In an interview with The New York Times, Mayer rhetorically asks "who else would I be thinking about" but Perry.

Mayer adds that "it's a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years."

Mayer has had other high-profile girlfriends over the years, including Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift.

The singer tells the Times he uses an exclusive dating app these days.
