The week's 20 biggest news stories (25 February)

A$AP Rocky has spoken out over the issue of homophobia in hip-hop, claiming that the genre will "fail" if artists don't become more open-minded about sexuality. The rapper said that he is concerned that sexual orientation is too much of an issue. He claimed that while pop "doesn't discriminate against people", hip-hop is "so retarded" when it comes to issues of homophobia.
