Macklemore And Kesha Teaming For 'Adventures' Tour

(Radio.com) Macklemore fans should be especially thankful for Kesha. A comedic new promo video for next summer's 'The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore' tour finds Macklemore ready to give up rapping to become a professional roller-blader.

That is until the arrival of Kesha, driving a classic Trans Am and decked out in a fabulous matching gold ensemble. The singer convinces him to give up his roller-blading dreams and go on tour with her instead.

The dynamic duo will launch the nine-week, 30-city tour June 6 in Phoenix, AZ, running until the final date on August 5 in Tampa, FL. $1 from every ticket sold will be donated on 'The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore' tour. Kesha will donate her proceeds to RAINN (Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network), the largest anti-sexual assault organization in the US. Macklemore will donate his proceeds to M Plus1, an organization that advances racial and social justice through the M&RL Equity Fund.

Watch 'The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore's tour trailer, which contains explicit language, and see all the dates here.

Taylor Swift Performs 'Reputation' Tracks At Jingle Bell Ball

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift has kept a relatively low profile while her sixth studio album Reputation tops the charts and her fans gobble up a holiday helping of confessional new music.

Over the weekend, however, Swift made an exception by performing at the Jingle Bell Ball in London. Her headlining set included a combination of hits from 1989 and Reputation including "Blank Space" and "Shake It Off" from the former. From the latter, Taylor performed "Gorgeous," "Look What You Made Me Do" and "…Ready For It?"

For good measure, Swift threw in a solo rendition of her duet with Zayn Malik: "I Don't Wanna Live Forever." The performance followed almost a month after her November 11 appearance on Saturday Night Live. Other acts at the Jingle Bell Ball included Ed Sheeran and Liam Payne. Watch Taylor perform "Ready For It," "Gorgeous" and "Look What You Made Me Do" here.

Ed Sheeran Reacts To Grammy Snub In Top Categories

(Radio.com) Heading into the 2018 GRAMMY nomination season, many expected Ed Sheeran to sweep numerous categories. While he was nominated for two GRAMMYs – Best Pop Solo Performance ("Shape Of You") and Best Pop Vocal Album (Divide) — Sheeran isn't on the ballot for the biggest awards, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year."

In a recent interview, Sheeran said he wasn't upset when he found out about the snub; in fact, he believes it was 'meant to be.' "There's a very clear reason why that happened and it's bigger than me, like much bigger than me. And like it's just something that, again, it was just meant to be," he told Billboard. "That is the way that this year was meant to roll out."

Sheeran added that he has everything going for him, and he has received numerous recent honors and accolades, so why complain? "You know, I'm not dying. It's not like I'm never gonna be nominated for a Grammy again," he said. "And I was nominated for two GRAMMYs. This is why everything's meant to be. The week after that, I get an MBE from the palace, I go Number One on Spotify, I go Number One on Billboard. I'm about to have my second ever Billboard Number One. Like, there's so many other things in the mix that counterbalance it." Read more here.

Lady Gaga Is 'Santa's Naughty Elf' For The Holidays

(Radio.com) The holidays are a time for gathering with friends, family, and -- if you're Lady Gaga -- the Haus of Gaga. The Joanne singer and her creative team celebrated Christmas with an array of "naughty elf" costumes this weekend.

Gaga's sister dressed up as Mrs. Claus and the "Born This Way" hitmaker dubbed herself "Mistress Claus." Wearing long, pointy ears and a green bodysuit, Gaga merged the festive with the provocative. Her squad explored the theme in felt tree costumes, velvet capes and other campy fashions of the North Pole.

"We love you and wish you lots of cheers and no tears!" Gaga captioned the Instagram album. The singer is currently on tour promoting Joanne and preparing for the 2018 release of the film A Star Is Born. It was recently announced that Gaga would use her given name--Stefani Germanotta--in credits for the film. Gaga wishes you a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year, here.

Beyonce Sends Bieryonce Beer Cease and Desist Order

(Radio.com) Production of a Brooklyn pilsner called Bieryonce halted production after Beyonce, the beer's namesake and label inspiration, ordered the creators to cease and desist. The beer brand was launched this fall and Beyonce's legal team took action as soon as they found out about it. Now, members of the Beyhive can seek out cans as limited edition collectibles.

Lineup Brewing owner Katarina Martinez insists that both the name and the Bey typography-inspired label were intended as a compliment. "As a Hispanic, female-run business, I am very inspired by her so I thought I'd pay homage," Martinez told Pitchfork. "We're disappointed she didn't take it as a compliment, but oh well. It was fun while it lasted!"

Bey and her representatives have not commented. The Bieryonce brew earned attention from industry bibles, including Bon Appetit magazine, which wrote that it's "perfect for those chilly-but-sunny Sundays when every song that plays from your phone is your favorite song." Read more here.

Rihanna, Katy Perry, Cardi B, Others Rally Behind Bullied Boy

(Radio.com) An emotional video of a young boy talking about the pain of being bullied has gone viral and many artists including Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Cardi B are standing up for him.

"Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?" Keaton Jones, a Tennessee native, asked in the video. "What's the point of it? Why do you find joy in taking innocent people and finding a way to be mean to them? It's not okay."

He explained that kids make fun of his nose and during lunch they pour milk on him and throw food at him. The video was shot by Jones' mother after she picked him up from school when he told her he was afraid to go to lunch.

After viewing the clip on social media, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Hailee Steinfeld, and others provided words of encouragement to Jones. "#KeatonJones Hero!!! Thank you young KING for inspiring us all who have been in your shoes at any capacity!" wrote Rihanna on social media. "If you have, or currently are going through any form of bullying, my heart and my prayers go out to you! Bullies…y'all corny!" See the more artists reactions here.

Singled Out: Ali B's Strangers In Love

17-Year-Old EDM Artist Ali B recently released a new music video for her single "Strangers In Love" to celebrate her to tell us the story behind the song. Here is the story:

Strangers in love was one of the first songs I ever wrote. I wrote it while I was on vacation and once I got one line, I just kept writing and it led me to finishing the song within 30 minutes or so. The thing that really inspired me the most was the feeling of love. I started writing the song as almost a breakup song, with the feeling of there's nobody like them or how happy you were when you were with one another. As I started writing the chorus I was trying to think of a catchy line or phrase and it came across my mind about putting a whole plot twist on the song. "What if they were in love but they just didn't know it?" I started to build this story line around the idea, which is how we later came up with the plot for the video. Parts of the song are talking about how you think that they're "the one" because no matter what your doing your always looking for them in someone else. "("Wherever I go I'll be look-in for you") it gives the listener an idea about how i am feeling about someone but then also putting the twist on the mystery behind it. You may be the ones for each other but you just don't know it yet because your strangers. I think this song is a situation that anyone can relate too about having feelings for someone or just thinking someone is cute and not having the guts to go up to them! Maybe your just strangers in love? 

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video right here!
