Harry Styles Slips On Tossed Kiwi During 'Kiwi' Song Performance

(Radio.com) In an act of audience participation, fans in England have been tossing kiwis onstage at Harry Styles shows when the former One Directioner he performs the song "Kiwi." On Monday (Oct. 30), Styles slipped on one of the round green fruits during a concert at the Hammersmith Apollo and nearly fell.

"Quick thing," he said after recovering his balance and composure. "As some of you may have seen, I may have slipped over on… There was an actual kiwi onstage and that was the culprit. There was a green — green, seedy mush on the floor. Oh, there's another one. This could end up being a problem."

Styles then restarted the song "Kiwi" without incident. The singer booked two dates at the venue as part of his UK tour for his eponymous debut solo album. Check out the fan-shot photo and videos here.

N.E.R.D Recruit Rihanna For New Comeback Single 'Lemon'

(Radio.com) Pharrell Williams' N.E.R.D have debuted the band's first new song in years, and they've brought Rihanna along for the ride. The new song, "Lemon," debuted Wednesday (Nov. 1).

Rihanna appears on the track delivering a scorching rap verse over the bouncing bass line and chaotic beat. The music video opens with Rihanna shaving another woman's head, shearing the hair off in huge chunks. The rest of the video follows the freshly-shorn woman energetically dancing in what appears to be a store during off-hours.

N.E.R.D's last album, Nothing, was released back in 2010. The band contributed a handful of tracks to Music from "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water" in 2015.

The group is set to take the stage this weekend (Nov. 4) at the Complexcon in Long Beach, CA. Watch the music video, which contains explicit language, here.

Selena Gomez And Justin Bieber Rumored To Be Back Together

(Radio.com) Pop stars--they really are just like us. They go to Target, they pump their own gas and on occasion, pop stars will reunite with exes they never imagined they'd date again. Case in point: Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber.

That's not to say that former flames Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are an item again, but there's plenty of evidence to fuel the rampant rumors swirling around the pair.

It all began when the bombshell announcement dropped that Gomez and boyfriend the Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) had called it quits after nearly a year together.

Around the same time as the breakup, the Weeknd went on an Instagram unfollowing spree, disconnecting from Gomez's family and friends, including her mom. Ouch.

Then came the breakfast heard 'round the world, when Gomez and ex-boyfriend Bieber were spotted having a morning meal, followed by some religious time with a shared trip to church.

Now we have evidence of the Weeknd cozying up with an unidentified female at a Toronto nightclub, while Gomez is spending even more time with Bieber riding bikes, which appears to be her new favorite pastime. Read more here.

Nicki Minaj Addresses Beef Rumors Over 'Motor Sport' and Cardi B

(Radio.com) Last week, Migos dropped "Motor Sport," their blockbuster collaboration with two of rap's biggest female MCs, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. In the wake of the release, rumors swirled that Nicki didn't realize she would be sharing billing with Cardi, and some even suggested that her disses on the track are aimed at the "Bodak Yellow" MC.

Nicki took to Twitter to clear up the confusion. Though she was originally recruited to guest on the track by herself, she was happy to remain involved once Cardi was added to the project.

"I was on the song w/Quavo. No one else was on it. He called & asked if I think we should put Bardi on it, I said 'ok let's do it.' The end," she wrote. "Anything w/my name on it gets approved by me."

"The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me," she added.

Nicki also noted that this kind of drama rarely flares up around songs with multiple male rappers--a double standard she's eager to squash. In an interview with Complex, Cardi also said she and Minaj are cool: "I feel like people just want that drama just cause it's entertaining," she said. See Nicki's statement here.

Blake Shelton Releases New Gwen Stefani-Inspired Song 'Turnin' Me On'

(Radio.com) It's raining Blake Shelton songs. The country superstar has released a third new song this week, debuting "Turning' Me On' Wednesday (Nov. 1). It's the latest advance track ahead of his new album, Texoma Shore, due this Friday (Nov. 3). And this one is all about Gwen Stefani.

"We're sitting on my bus one day earlier in 2017 and I think I was in Baton Rouge. I was up there alone and I had my guitar, started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head and next thing you know I started writing a song," Shelton said in a press statement.

"I wrote a verse, then I wrote a chorus, then I realized it was going somewhere and I felt good about it. Like I always [have] in the last couple of years I called up my friend Jessi Alexander and said, 'Man, I think I'm onto something and I need somebody way better than me to try to bring this thing home.' She and I and Josh Osborne ended up writing this song, I'm super proud of it," he continued. "And it's not hard to figure out who this song is about," he added in reference to girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Listen to Blake Shelton's new song "Turnin' Me On" here.

Jennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez Recall Their First Date

(Radio.com) Jennifer Lopez and former New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez began dating in February, which launched a whirlwind year of Instagrams, public appearances and tabloid speculation. Despite their public approach to dating, their love has blossomed in private, beginning with their first date. This month the power couple cover Vanity Fair and remember how quickly they hit it off.

"He was sitting there in his white shirt, very confident and manly, but then he was just so talkative!" Lopez said. "I think he thought I was going to be this loud person, but I'm not. I just listen. So he's talking, talking about his plans, about how he had just retired from baseball, about how he saw himself getting married again, all these things you wouldn't normally talk about on a first date. I don't know if he thought it was a date. I thought it was a date. Then I knew he was nervous because he asked me if I wanted a drink. I said, 'No, I don't drink,' and he asked if I minded if he had one. He was nervous, and it was really cute."

Rodriguez said he wasn't sure if the evening was a "date" until Lopez confirmed that she was single. He deployed a useful baseball metaphor for that moment.

"She told me around the third or fourth inning that she was single," he said. "I had to get up and go re-adjust my thoughts. I went to the bathroom and got enough courage to send her a text."

What did he text? "You look sexy AF." Read more here.

Why The Backstreet Boys Rooted for Houston Astros In World Series

(Radio.com) While the Los Angeles Dodgers have forced a decisive seventh game in this year's wild and dramatic World Series last night (Nov. 1), the Backstreet Boys were rooting for the opposing Houston Astros.

And it's all because of Houston's star second baseman, Jose Altuve. It started last season when Altuve was caught in the Astros locker room crooning the Backstreet Boys' 1999 hit, "I Want it That Way," which went viral.

The group saw the video, and liked it so much that they've jumped on the Astros bandwagon, sharing a video of support to Altuve and the team. "There was an Internet sensation video that happened with Jose Altuve from the Astros, the second baseman," BSB singer Brian Littrell said in the Instagram video posted before World Series Game 6. "The dude is 5-foot-6, and he's going to be the AL MVP, I think so. We want to tell you congratulations, good luck in the World Series, go Astros, God bless you!" Read more here.

Sam Smith Talks New Album 'The Thrill of It All'

(Radio.com) Few 25-year-olds have reached the critical peaks of Sam Smith's career, and he has hardware to prove it. In 2015 his debut album In the Lonely Hour earned him four GRAMMY Awards including Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. He followed that triumph with a Best Song Oscar for "Writing's on the Wall" from the 007 flick Spectre. As Smith prepares his return with The Thrill of It All, the British singer-songwriter has more to say about love, heartbreak and living out loud.

For his sophomore album, the "Stay With Me" singer says he's taking themes and sounds in a darker direction. "This album doesn't sound pretty to me. I want this to be more gritty," he recently told Rolling Stone. "I want it to sound older, a bit more uncomfortable. In the Lonely Hour is a gin and tonic with your friends. The new album is a whiskey by yourself in a dark room, at night, thinking about life. I went into a deep place. I don't think I'm going to go into that place ever again, because it got a bit too deep."

Fans loved "Too Good at Goodbyes," the mournful, soulful lead single that doesn't search for the easy answers of "Stay With Me." Smith has also shared "Pray" and "Burning" from the album, which continue his melancholic ruminations on love. The singer says "Burning" is his favorite song on the album.

"It's the most personal song I've ever written in my life," he said during a BBC Radio appearance. 'I was going through a really tough time last year. I live in London, and I went through a breakup. And I dealt with the breakup in a bad way, and I was just going out way too much." Read more here.
