There's been ups and downs, but Ultra Music Festival turned out another year of unforgettable musical energy.
Ultra Music Festival turned out to be a bit of a rollercoaster of a weekend for everyone this year but, as usual, it's been three days of some of the most explosive electronic acts of our generation.
It was a terribly disappointing moment for festival goers (and, indeed, viewers; those who were viewing it live online) when it was announced that Saturday's main stage headliner Avicii would not make it to Miami for his set after being hospitalised earlier in the week for an emergency operation. However, that initial fan frustration was greatly eased by the arrival of Deadmau5, who took the Swedish DJ's place to much delightful surprise. Further entertainment came with some eagerly anticipated headline sets from Tiesto and Hardwell on the Friday and Sunday respectively.

The budding rapper hasn't given up on randomly attacking celebrities for no apparent reason, this time taking on the Obamas
Amanda Bynes calling someone ugly on Twitter isn't exactly something new, she's already had a pop at the looks of Drake, Miley Cyrus and Zac Efron, and in her latest Twitter rant the former child star has moved away from Hollywood and to the White House. On Monday she Tweeted, "Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!" and as you'd expect, she has received quite the backlash.
Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) July 8, 2013
Apparently Amanda's album is already coming together, with a team of song-writers and producers assembling the first parts of the album
Amanda Bynes, in case you haven't already heard, desperately wants her next career move to be a step into the rap game, as the former child actress has mentioned countless times on Twitter since she became a tabloid darling earlier this year. Whilst most of us laughed, some people though 'why the hell not' and now it looks as though Amanda is on her way to becoming a recording hip hop artist.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame is to blame for Amanda's potential entry into the rap game, with the Brick Squad Monopoly records owner reportedly interested in signing Bynes up to his rooster. Speaking with TMZ earlier this week, the rapper revealed that he has already begun work on her first album and has hired a number of people to write material for the album that he promised is "going to be crazy hot."
Waka also revealed the potential title of the album, Shots, and said that he and Amanda have become close over the past few weeks, texting each other regularly and Skyping at least once a week. Their relationship is purely plutonic, with Waka explaining that they usually spend their time discussing Amanda's move into rap and how she needs to ignore all the 'haters' out there and concentrate on herself. He also said that he thinks the whole furore surrounding Amanda at the moment is nothing more than media chatter and he doesn't think there is anything wrong with Amanda's mental state.

Waka Flocka reckons Amanda can bring something new to the rap game and he is working on her album already
In case you hadn't heard, everyone's favourite ticking time-bomb Amanda Bynes is dead set on becoming a rapper, and it has been looking increasingly more likely that her ambition will be realised ever since she shared it on Twitter. First, we heard that representative from Chinga Chang Records were meeting with the former child star with an offer to record her album, and now she has an even more well-known helping hand in the form of rapper Waka Flocka Flame.
Waka Flocka was speaking to TMZ this week when he said that he is currently in talks with Amanda to get her to join up with his label; Brick Squad Monopoly records, saying that although the two have not signed anything yet, the deal is all but done already. Waka is apparently so keen on linking up with Bynes on some tracks that he's already hired some people to write songs for the Easy A actress and has pledged his own rapping talent to a number of tracks on the album, which he said will be called Shots. He then warned TMZ; "It's going to be crazy hot."
The rapper also revealed that his work with Bynes is more than just for business, revealing that the two have become quite good friends since her rapping ambitions were made public; telling TMZ that the two text each other every day and regularly FaceTime on Skype - mostly to discuss her rap career but also so that Waka can give Amanda advice and tell her not to let the haters bring her down (we're honestly not making this up). When asked about Amanda's recent behaviour and whether there might be something up with her he was equally as defensive, saying, "Not at all. She has it all together to me. She is cool as hell and ready for the rap world. I think she is going to kill the game."
