Katy Perry Releases 'Swish Swish' Music Video

Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds On Inspiration For LoveLoud Festival

(Radio.com) This weekend (Aug. 26), LoveLoud, a new music festival conceived by Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds, debuts at Orem, Utah's Brent Brown Ballpark.

Designed to celebrate LGBTQ people and culture in the heavily Mormon state, the inaugural edition of LoveLoud will feature Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Krewella, Nicholas Petricca of Walk The Moon, Joshua James and Reynold's wife, Aja Volkman.

"More than the event itself is the conversation about it, "Reynolds (who was raised in a Mormon household) said to Vanity Fair. "Parents and kids sitting around the dinner table and the kids say, 'Hey, mom, I want to go to this festival.' And the parents say, 'Hey, let's talk about what that is and what that means.'"

"It felt like a lot of unnecessary guilt looking back on it," Reynolds said regarding his past experience with the church. "That already opened up my heart to people who are feeling guilty [because] of religion. To times that by a million is to be an L.G.B.T.Q. child in a home who's told that their most basic instinct or sense of being is wrong or flawed or sinful." Read more here.

'Hollywood Medium' Channels Notorious B.I.G. with Lil' Kim

(Radio.com) Tyler Henry, star of the TV show Hollywood Medium, channeled the spirit of Notorious B.I.G. during this week's episode (Aug. 23) with Lil' Kim and clips are available to view online.

During the episode, Henry said that the rapper's spirit was hinting that two people conspired in his still-unsolved 1997 murder. "It is interesting to note, he is having me bring up two people, two people, two people and showing me two people conspiring," Henry told Lil' Kim (via TooFab). "There's a feeling of almost like people talking or hearing that someone might not have wanted him to live. He's showing me a symbol of death threat and then not taking death threat seriously, which would indicate if we don't know who did it, many people would."

Later, Henry revealed that the late rapper considered Lil' Kim his soulmate: "For him, loving you was the greatest accomplishment his soul truly feels it was ever able to do. You showed him what love was but you helped teach him in ways that no one else did and that's so special." Watch clips from the episode here.
