Louis Tomlinson Streams New Song 'Just Like You'

(Radio.com) Louis Tomlinson has just released the new track "Just Like You." It's the third song Tomlinson has put out post One Direction. He previously teamed with Steve Aoki for "Just Hold On and joined forces with Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals for "Back to You."

The song, a mid-paced, reflective number, features creative keyboard sounds and an array of soft electronic beats and confessional lyrics: "I'm just like you/ even though my problems look nothing like yours do/ I get sad, too/ when I'm sad I need somebody to talk to."

"It's very autobiographical and obviously about me," Tomlinson told Zane Lowe. "The fans have seen so much and got to know us so well, but I've never really had a chance to be as honest like that with music, so that was really refreshing."

"Just Like You" expresses the challenges of success and emphasizes how there are drawbacks that go with the perks. "The important thing to me was that, I've read a lot of press stories about myself and the press and everyone naturally puts this spin on fame and celebrity, and I kinda just wanted to show the other side of it," he said. "I've kind of struggled with the concept of fame and it's hard for anyone to get your head around. It was important to me to write a song that could humanize me as much as possible and that the fans can really feel I'm just like them. Honest and vulnerable and real."

Earlier, Tomlinson hit social media. "My next single will be a bit later this year but I wanted to share this with you now," he tweeted. "This is one of my favourites from the album. Conceptually I think it sums me up!" Listen to the song here.

Charlie Puth Loses It On Corden's 'Late Late Show'

(Radio.com) 'This is the worst game ever." one contestant told The Late Late Show host James Corden as he competed alongside Charlie Puth, and they were halfway into 'Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts."

The talk show bit takes disgusting items like jellyfish, fish eyes, turkey testes, salmon seaweed smoothies, and has the show's guests either answer an uncomfortable question or eat an item.

Puth joined Frozen voice-actor Josh Gad, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom and Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery and Corden for a round. However, he almost vomited multiple times. Puth explained, 'People who know me, I have a very very sensitive stomach and I can't even be around brussel sprouts let alone this stuff."

He almost hurled when Rachel Bloom was unable to answer the name of Dockery's 'Downton Abbey' character, so her team had to ingest bird saliva. The pop star was slightly offended when Corden didn't know the titles of three of his songs. Corden tried to explain, "I'm a 39-year old father of two." To which Puth replied, "Yeah, but you're cool."

It got him a kiss on the cheek, but the host couldn't come up with another title so he had to drink the salmon seaweed smoothie. When Puth was asked if he would say Meghan Trainor or Selena Gomez was a better singer, he chose to eat a grasshopper, instead of answer the question. This decision would ultimately do the pop star in, causing him to use the chuck bucket to his side.

He did, however, compose himself afterwards for a performance of his single 'Attention." Read more here.

Perry was performing at the Barclays Arena in Brooklyn on her current Witness tour when she stopped the show and called couple Katy and Becky from the audience.

Happily, Becky said yes, much to the crowd and Perry's delight. Watch fan footage of the proposal, which contains some profanity by an enthusiastic concertgoer, here.
