Ed Sheeran Cancels Tour Dates Due To Injury

(Radio.com) On Monday (Oct. 16), Ed Sheeran posted a photo of his right arm in a cast along with the note, "I've had a bit of a bicycle accident. I'm currently waiting on some medical advice, which may affect some of my upcoming shows."

Sheeran later gave fans an update on his injuries and canceled seven shows. "A visit to my doctors confirmed fractures in my right wrist and left elbow that will leave me unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future. Sadly, this means that the following shows will not be able to go ahead as planned: Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong. I'm waiting to see how the healing progresses before we have to decide on shows beyond that. Please stay tuned for more details."

The accident apparently occurred when Sheeran was riding his bike in London and was struck by a car, which knocked him to the ground (via NME). In addition to the cast on his right arm, Doctors bandaged his left arm to protect his elbow. If Sheeran recovers fully he might be able to play scheduled dates in Manila, Jakarta, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Mumbai and Dubai. He should be fully healed in time for three December holiday concerts in the U.S. Read more here.

Harry Styles Says That He Named One Direction

(Radio.com) Is there anything Harry Styles can't do? Fresh off a successful acting turn in Dunkirk and currently supporting his red-hot self-titled solo debut, the singer has revealed yet another talent: naming pop groups.

In a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Styles shared how he was the one to come up with the name One Direction for the band that would go on to become one of the biggest pop acts in the world.

"I know they're not here to defend anything else, but it was me," Styles told CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Tony Dokoupil, referring to his 1D band-mates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.

"I thought it sounded good. We threw around names for a little bit, and I honestly don't know. I suggested it and everyone was like 'Yeah we like that' and then it kind of stuck, and that was what it was."

Watch Harry Styles talk about One Direction (and making quick change as a cashier) in the video here.

Gucci Mane and Keyshia Get Married In White Wedding

(Radio.com) Gucci Mane tied the knot with fiancee Keyshia Tuesday night before a crowd of guests and everyone was dressed in white. The A-list attendees included Lil Yachty, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Trina, Karreuche Tran and other hip-hop luminaries from the Atlanta scene and beyond.

Guests shared their photos on social media and the ladies' outfits could have easily been mistaken for wedding gowns. Keyshia described the dress code concept in an interview with Page Six earlier this year.

'All the women have to wear a gown, as if you are getting married," she said. "And the men have to wear white suits. Even my camera crew has to wear white. If you don't come dressed accordingly you have to leave, and I am so serious. If you come wearing something else then you were not invited."

Gucci and Keyshia also settled on a great wedding hashtag: #TheWopsters. See photos from the event here.
