?Soho House: Malibu Blues
The Soho House's new Malibu location, the Little Beach House, is now open for business and music industry titans like Jimmy Iovine didn't wait for word-of-mouth to spread before setting up shop. Sources tell us that the Interscope chairman and Apple Music honcho, who bought a Malibu beachfront compound from producer Marcy Carsey in 2015 for $60 million, has been camped out there on a near-daily basis. Also expected soon are Dr. Dre, who owns a beachfront mansion nearby, as well as L.A. Reid, who is renting a Malibu house this summer. The space -- an art-filled, two-story spread on Carbon Beach with indoor and outdoor dining options and 10,000 square-feet -- has been an instant hit thanks to its mellow beach vibes, a source says. The buzz kill? Some insiders are frustrated at Little Beach House's rules that require members be residents of a beach community and even current Soho House members must reapply to gain access to the standalone membership community in Malibu. A source adds that the current waiting list is approximately six months. Soho House doesn't comment on numbers due to general privacy policies. --Chris Gardner
Rae Sremmurd Thump Trump
Atlanta hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd has gone on record as opposing Donald Trump’s politics, but not enough to stop singing its 2015 song “Up Like Trump,” which celebrates the presidential hopeful’s wealth and style. Instead, the pair, who have expressed support for Bernie Sanders, struck a compromise. At the Doritos #MixArcade Electronic Entertainment Expo at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on June 15, Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi preceded their performance of the track by leading the crowd in a “F--- Donald Trump” chant, just as they did at South by Southwest in March. Their rep did not respond to a request for comment.

Chance The Rapper Sees His Exes At T2
Chance the Rapper had a little fun at the expense of his exes at Take-Two (T2) Interactive's E3 kickoff party on June 13. The Chicago rapper, who performed at Cecconi's in West Hollywood, opened his set by dedicating his track "Baby Blue" to "all my exes out there," adding, "I see several of them in the crowd." It's unclear whether any of the artist's former girlfriends were in the audience, but if they were, they probably weren't happy with the dedication. The opening rhymes of "Baby Blue" are "Why you always all on my back?/Why you gotta do me like that? / Why you gotta act like a bitch when I'm with you?/ Baby girl I'm blue."

The rapper also performed "Everybody's Something," "Summer Friends," "Planes" and "Angels," which left the crowd's celebrity contingent with smiles on their faces and Chance seemingly in need of a drink. "If you see me at the bar I like Jameson shots,” he said before exiting the stage. “I love you all; play some video games.”
