Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne is getting into the sports agency business, as TMZ reports the rapper is partnering with PolarisSports. His first client is international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, who confirmed the news yesterday via Twitter.

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is keeping very busy, as a new interview with Rolling Stone reveals he is working with his pre-Metallica band Exodus. Hammett will play with the rockers tonight in San Diego and appears on their upcoming album. Hammett is in town for the massive San Diego Comic Con, as he is expanding his line of Kirk Von Hammett Toys of classic monster movie icons. As for Metallica, who recently unleashed a new track called "Lords Of Summer," he told Rolling Stone that "Whether the songs will actually sound like 'Lords of Summer' or not remains to be seen, because we still have to write them, but that's the general direction we're headed in. I want to make a quick album, but I just know that's not realistic."

Massive Chicago Cubs fan Eddie Vedder took over Wrigley Field on Thursday night, as the Pearl Jam frontman threw out the first pitch, sang "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" in the seventh inning stretch and joined the TV broadcast as well. Vedder and his family were in attendance at the game to honor the singer's uncle John, who took Vedder to his first ever ballgame.

Lionel Richie will be honored at the 2014 Billboard Touring Awards as a "Legend Of Live." The event is set for November 20 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City. According to Billboard, this is the highest touring honor it offers, celebrating "individuals or bands who have made significant and lasting contributions to live music and the touring industry."
