Backstreet Boys Nick Carter Denies Rape Allegations

(Radio.com) Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been accused of a 2002 sexual assault. Melissa Schuman, a former member of pop group Dream, claims she and Carter were socializing at his home when he forcibly performed oral sex on her and forced her to reciprocate, before raping her.

Schuman shared the details of the incident in a lengthy blog post. Schuman says she wanted to report the incident shortly after, but her manager at the time warned her that Carter "had the most powerful litigator in the country."

Carter responded to Schuman's accusations in a statement to People which reads: "I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally."

"This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, nearly two decades later. It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm." Read more about her claims here.

Fans quickly responded to the posts, asking what happened next. "I left," Khalid said. "I ignored it bc I don't like showing anger in front of anyone… Sexual assault/harassment happens on both ends and you're right. It's unacceptable," he responded to another fan.

"One s—ty person isn't going to keep me away from anybody, I really love u guys," Khalid added. "Spoke about it bc it can happen to anybody!"

Khalid continued to speak on the incident:"I don't want someone grabbing on me that I don't know lol some people are weird." See the tweets, without explicit language, here.

Garth Brooks Discusses CMA Lip Sync Controversy

(Radio.com) Garth Brooks has taken a lot of flak for lip-syncing his performance at this year's CMAs, but he insists he'd do it again. The criticism has come from disgruntled fans as well as fellow country stars, including his friend Miranda Lambert and her boyfriend, Anderson East.

Now, Brooks has opened up about the controversial moment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, telling the host that he felt like it was the best decision considering not only the show, but his fans.

"We did 12 shows in 10 days, and right in the middle of those 12 shows was CMAs. So we went in and did a track for it, just in case the voice was gone," Brooks shared. "Made a game-time decision and played it because we still had seven shows starting the next night in Spokane."

"The truth is, I love award shows. I think they're sweet," Brooks added. "But for me, they're like the tree is to Christmas--they're the symbol of it, but they're not what it's all about. What it's about is those people that put their butts in the seat, travel, fight that traffic, pay that parking and go. That's who you want to save your voice for. So we made that decision. If it happened again tomorrow, I'd make the same decision." Watch the full here.

Macklemore Is Very Proud Of His Naked Justin Bieber Painting

(Radio.com) Andy Cohen asked Macklemore a burning question on a recent episode (Nov. 16) when the artist came on his show, Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

Since no one else wanted it, he decided to keep it. And he's grown fond of the odd image. 'I'm very proud of it, and it's become a huge headline," he said. "It's like, 'Macklemore owns a naked Justin Bieber d— pancake painting,' and it's part of my thing now."

He joked that it serves a useful function in his home. 'It goes right above my bed, and whenever I'm with my wife intimately, I can always stare and if I want to control my orgasm, just slow it down." Read more here.

Jay Z Pens Op-Ed About Meek Mill's Probation Sentence

(Radio.com) Earlier this month, Meek Mill's fans and peers descended on Philadelphia to protest his two- to four-year probation violation sentence. In a New York Times op-ed titled "Meek Mill and the Absurdity of the Criminal Justice System," Jay speaks out on Meek's behalf and against the "entrapment and harassment" of black men in America.

"What's happening to Meek Mill is just one example of how our criminal justice system entraps and harasses hundreds of thousands of black people every day," Jay wrote. "I saw this up close when I was growing up in Brooklyn during the 1970s and 1980s. Instead of a second chance, probation ends up being a land mine, with a random misstep bringing consequences greater than the crime. A person on probation can end up in jail over a technical violation like missing a curfew."

Mill's probation violation sentence was criticized for its "excessive" length and the controversial basis of his violation. According to sources, the decision stemmed from two arrests early this year in which charges were dropped. Mill's probation officer said the rapper has 'responded well" and 'actively participated in an effort towards behavioral change." The rapper was previously incarcerated for a drug and gun violation in 2008.

"Think about that," Jay wrote. "The charges were either dropped or dismissed, but the judge sent him to prison anyway." Read more here.

Blake Shelton's Friends React To 'Sexiest Man Alive' Honor

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton was named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive" for 2017 and while Shelton has his own jokes about the honor, his friends also decided to chime in on the news.

"I'm speechless," Luke Bryan told Sounds Like Nashville. "He's taken so many things from me. And now this? Who in the hell is choosing these? Am I being punked? And we're sure that y'all didn't Photoshop [his] face over [my] face and change the name? I guess we're all stuck with it."

Shelton is set to take his good looks on tour in 2018 and one of his tourmates, Brett Eldredge, said even though he's sexy, he's also a bit of a goof. "I mean, he's a sexy man, don't get me wrong, but he's a big goofball too, which is even better," Eldredge said. "He's just Blake: He's honest, he's real, he's unapologetically himself. He's as real as he is on The Voice or onstage. If you see him, he's the same offstage as well, and I think that makes somebody more charming, honesty and being who you are. He's doing it right, and we love him for it."

Not everybody made fun of Shelton though. Chris Young said that Shelton is deserving of the award and isn't surprised by any honor he receives at this point in his career. Read more here.
