Rapper Nelly Sued For Alleged Sexual Assault

(Radio.com) Rapper Nelly (real name Cornell Haynes Jr.) is being sued by a woman in Washington state who claims Nelly sexually assaulted her on his tour bus and then slandered her by saying she fabricated the story.

Monique Greene seeks unspecified damages in the incident, which allegedly took place in October in a Walmart parking lot in the suburbs of Seattle, The Seattle Times reports. The rapper was, indeed, arrested in October, but last week prosecutors in the case did not charge him because Greene wasn't cooperating in the investigation.

Greene's attorney, Karen Koehler, told The Seattle Times that Greene decided to file suit after Nelly announced last week that she made up her story and that he didn't assault her.

Nelly's attorney Scott Rosenblum said he believes the lawsuit is an effort to extort money out of the rapper and that he is planning a countersuit. Read his comments here.

'Mamma Mia!' Sequel First Trailer Goes Online

(Radio.com) The first trailer for Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again was just released, and it has left a lot of questions about the plot of the movie, which hits theaters on July 20, 2018.

The trailer shows Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant and preparing for motherhood. Her mom's best friends Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters) are there, but they seem to be referring to Sophie's mom, Donna (Meryl Streep), in the past tense. Meryl Streep does reprise her role, but it appears to be primarily in flashbacks.

Much of the original film's cast will also be reprising their roles including Sophie's three fathers (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard). Today's trailer also gives us our first glimpse of pop diva Cher in her new role as Sophie's grandmother.

Mamma Mia, the musical featuring songs by ABBA, became a worldwide sensation when it premiered in 1999. The show has grossed more than $2 billion since its debut. The original film, based on the musical, debuted in 2008. It grossed more than $600 million. Check out the trailer here.

Sam Hunt Recalls His Favorite Childhood Christmas Gifts

(Radio.com) When it comes to his favorite Christmas memories, Sam Hunt will never forget his trusty Comanche. "I remember being really excited when, I got into riding horses, and one Christmas I got a Mustang that I named Comanche - a horse - and that was a really exciting time. I rode all the time after that," Hunt revealed in a prepared statement. "Before, I had some friends, a babysitter whose kids had horses, so I'd be able to ride occasionally, but now I was able to ride whenever I wanted to."

The Georgia native's youthful cowboy dreams included his own backyard rodeo, thanks to another memorable Christmas gift. "I remember one year, it probably started from the horse-riding thing, but I got into wanting to be a bullrider," the "Body Like a Back Road" singer revealed.

"I was still pretty young - 8, 9, 10 years old - so one Christmas, we got a little steer calf. It had a little rope, and I'd try to ride a calf, you know?" Read more here.

Kenny Chesney Concert Leads To Couple's Engagement

(Radio.com) Eighteen years after Kenny Chesney released "You Had Me at Hello," the song's lyrics came to life at one of his Nashville concerts. The magical love story between Holly Hammonds and Army Capt. R.J. Edwards sparked at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in March 2015, which she shared with the Tennessean.

Hammonds and a friend were there seeing Chesney for the second night in a row when from a section in the lower bowl when she caught Edwards eye, who was on the main floor with some friends.

After flirting through the concert, Edwards gave Hammonds a wave, inspiring her to give him her phone number in a clever and effective way: flashing the numbers at him one at a time using her fingers.

Edwards' mom didn't raise no fool, so he quickly texted her, and the pair made plans to meet at a local bar after the show. Ironically, the two met at the bar to discover that neither of them drink alcohol. The rest, as they say, is history.

When Edwards was moved to ask Hammonds for her hand in marriage earlier this year, he arranged an elaborate proposal at Bridgestone Arena. Getting down on one knee on the arena's icy main floor (it's the Nashville Predators' home ice), the moment was captured on video and quickly went viral.

The news of the couple's love story has reached Chesney, who has offered the young lovers' free tickets and full VIP treatment for any upcoming show. Read more here.

Cardi B Explains Her Name On Late Night TV

(Radio.com) On Wednesday night (Dec. 20), Cardi B sat down with The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon for a hilarious, all-encompassing chat about her origins (how she got her name) and how she approaches holiday shopping.

The MC had Fallon in stitches when she described why she calls herself "Cardi B." "You know what, my sister's name is Hennessy, so everybody used to call me Bacardi," Cardi said. "Then it was my Instagram name, Bacardi, Bacardi B, but for some reason, my Instagram kept getting deleted, and you know what I think it was Bacardi [the alcohol company] that had something to do with it. So I just changed it to Cardi B."

She also explained her personal rule: Never buy Christmas presents for adults. Her explanation is rock solid. "Everybody that I know got kids and that's just a lot of kids," she said. "And I got God kids out of nowhere -- once you start making money everybody want you to be their kids' godmother."

This fall brought big personal news for Cardi, who's now engaged to Migos' Offset. She said the proposal came as a surprise even though gifts of bling weren't so unusual.

"He was always like, 'I'm going to marry you, I'm going to marry you.' I know he was going to give me a very expensive gift because he wasn't there for my birthday," she said. "but I thought he was going to give me like a watch or something he just went out his way." Watch the fun interview here.

The Chainsmokers Disciplined By National Guard

(Radio.com) The Chainsmokers might be a chart-topping EDM duo, but to the South Carolina National Guard they're just a couple of grunts that need to be whipped into shape.

The moment was captured at the McCrady training center in Fort Jackson, where the Chainsmokers gave a special performance for the troops. In the video, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart are pulled out a group of troops in formation to be loudly berated by their superiors before being forced to drop and deliver 20 pushups.

"We thought we were in formation but I guess not," the band joked on Instagram. "Thanks to the USO for bringing us to McCrady training center to surprise Fort Jackson soldiers for holiday holdover leave. It was a honor to perform for all of you, thank you for your service to our country." Watch the comedic clip, which features quite a bit of yelling, here.
