Jason Aldean Relives Las Vegas Shooting In New Interview

(Radio.com) Jason Aldean was on stage performing on October 1 at Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas when a man opened fire, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500. In an interview with Today, which aired on Tuesday morning (Nov. 14), the singer recalled the confusion he and his band felt as the bullets started to fly.

"We wear in-ear monitors when we're onstage. And really, all you can hear is the music and maybe your guys that can talk to you on microphones that are on side-stage," Aldean explained. "So when it first happened, I thought a speaker had blown, is what I thought. It just sounded like a crackling something. And so, I'm kind of looking around like, 'What is that?', trying to figure out what it is. Then it stopped, so I was like, 'They must have got it fixed,' and so I kept doing my thing."

Moments later, he heard the sound again and Aldean said he was aggravated that the problem wasn't fixed. Then he realized something was very wrong. "When I turned and looked, my guitar player had run behind me and was telling me to move, like, 'Let's go,'" Aldean said. "My security guy was running onstage, telling me to run." Read more here.

Taylor Swift Makes Emotional Surprise 'Fallon' Appearance

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift made an unscheduled appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday night (Nov. 13). Fallon's first day back after a week off to grieve his mother's death was an emotional one and Swift helped spread the healing.

At the start of the show, Fallon told a touching story from his childhood, in which his mother squeezed his hand three times to say I love you. So, when Swift performed the poignant "New Year's Day" which coincidentally featured the lyric, "Squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi," Fallon and his staff got a little emotional.

Tonight Show writer and producer Mike DiCenzo shared some background about Swift's last-minute performance and thanked the singer for her thoughtfulness.

"She was not scheduled to do our show today," he wrote on Twitter. "But we wanted something special for this first show back, so we asked her on a complete whim, since she had been in town doing SNL. She said yes with zero hesitation."

Referring to the line in the song about hand-squeezing, he added, "I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing. I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance."

Later in the song, Swift sang another line that struck a chord: "Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you."

"That hug between Jimmy and Taylor after the song was 100 percent real emotion," he said. "Whatever you think of Taylor, she did something beautiful for Jimmy and our show today, and we're forever grateful." DiCenzo tweeted.

Rick Ross Joined 'Free Meek Mill' Protest in Philadelphia

(Radio.com) After Meek Mill was sentenced to two years in prison for a probation violation, fans and supporters in Philadelphia planned a "Free Meek Mill" protest to voice their objection. The sentence has been criticized for its length and the credibility of claims he violated his probation. Rick Ross joined the protest and voiced his support for Meek. Mill is signed to Ross' Maybach Music Group.

"I'm here to support my brother Meek Mill," he said. "I want y'all to understand that if it take Meek Mill to draw this attention, we gonna use Meek Mill to draw this attention that is gonna speak for so many others."

Mill served eight months in jail beginning in 2008 for a gun and drug conviction. This year, he allegedly was involved in a fight at a St. Louis airport and was arrested for reckless driving in New York this August. Both charges were dropped, yet they reportedly formed the basis of his probation judgment. The New York Post reports that the FBI is currently examining the parole case. Read more here.

Kendrick Lamar Shares Thoughts On Mumble Rap

(Radio.com) The generation divide in hip-hop continues to rage, with traditional purists of the genre locked in perpetual battle with a new school of rap, currently represented by the wave of "mumble" rappers including Lil Yachty, Future, 21 Savage, Migos and Lil Uzi Vert.

Kendrick Lamar has shared his thoughts on the mumble rap phenomenon during a new interview with Forbes as part of their annual "30 Under 30" issue. "The responsibility … this is how I think is how you stay sane and stay focused in the essence of music, is to never forget the root where I come from, as far as hip-hop, and knowing my forefathers and the people that laid the groundwork for me to be here," Lamar said when asked about what comes with the mantle of being among (if not) the best rapper alive. "I always keep that in the back of my mind. Never take it for advantage, and misuse it.

"But also, at the same time I want to evolve. You know? I want hip-hop to continue to evolve," Lamar continued. "That's why I can't shun a lot of the artists that may not be a Kendrick Lamar. But this is what I tell them every time I see them … be yourself and do what you do but also know who laid down the groundwork. Don't go on your interviews and dis them and say you don't like them and you don't care for them. That's your opinion, that's cool but you have to respect them. So talking down on the folks that inspired us to do this, it'd never be right." Read more here.
