Pink Says Christina Aguilera Once 'Took A Swing' At Her

(Radio.com) Pink and Christina Aguilera's legendary beef boiled over during the making of "Lady Marmalade," but there's even more juicy backstory than fans realize. On Watch What Happens Live, Pink described a run-in with Christina (presumably in the early 2000s) that turned physical.

"You have to learn -- women have to learn how to support each other," she said. "It's not taught to each other on the playground. Actually, she swung at me in a club. Hilarious! I was like, 'What's happening right now? What's happening?'"

Pink stressed that everything's fine between the two singers. now. On the show, she expressed her respect for Christina's voice and described how they reconciled. "She's so talented and deep down I've had bad days too," P!nk said. "She's a really sweet person. We made up on The Voice. I mean, it was funny, I laughed. I hadn't seen her in years and years and years."

The singer said their personalities as young and hungry divas made a combustible combination. "We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I'm an alpha, and she's an alpha," she said. "I'm used to taking my altercations physical and she's used to having them verbal. We're just very different, we're very different. And we were very young and new."

The Beautiful Trauma singer shared her theory about why things are better now. "We became moms," Pink said. "We grew up. We hugged it out. It's that simple. I feel so good about that." Watch the full interview here.

Ed Sheeran Says Substance Abuse Contributed To His Hiatus

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran recently appeared on the U.K.'s Jonathan Ross Show (via People) where and the singer opened up about how temptations on tour caused his relationship with substances to escalate.

It was a situation that contributed to the singer's decision to take a year off from music in December of 2015. "I think you need to, when you get into the industry, adjust to it -- and I didn't adjust because I was constantly working on tour," he said. "And all the pitfalls that people read about, I just found myself slipping into all of them. Mostly, like, substance abuse. I never touched anything. I started slipping into it, and that's why I took a year off and buggered off."

Sheeran says working on new music helped keep him on the straight and narrow. "I focused on work, and I can't work under the influence, I can't write songs under the influence, I can't perform under the influence -- so the more I worked the less [that happened]. I've worked my whole life to get to where I am and you can't lose that over something that you do in your spare time," he said. Read more here.

RZA's Publicist Responds to Azealia Banks' 'Drop Dead' Reamrks

(Radio.com) A publicist for Wu-Tang Clan member RZA has made an official statement in response to Azealia Banks' social media attacks following a highly publicized incident involving actor Russell Crowe.

The incident in question involved RZA escorting Banks to a Hollywood party hosted by Crowe back in October of 2016. An altercation broke out between Banks and Crowe. Banks claimed, among other things, that the actor had spit on her.

RZA recently said that Crowe did spit on Banks, in contradiction to a lengthy statement he posted in the immediate aftermath of the incident. Banks responded to the Wu-Tang rapper with the publicly shared wish that he "drop dead."

"The derogatory posts against my client RZA by Azealia Banks is unwarranted and beyond that -- unbecoming. RZA, from the moment he met Ms. Banks, bet on her to win," the publicist explained (via XXL). "So much so that when others felt she would be too much trouble to work with on the film Love Beats Rhyme, he disregarded what had been said and looked beyond her well documented controversies moving forward with securing her as his lead."

"Her introduction to Russell Crowe at his private party resulted in Banks going on a salacious mission to disparage him and RZA," the publicist added. "Playing the race card and anything else she could."

"I represent RZA and found it necessary to state he would never have done what he has in support of Ms. Banks to put her in a position to be harmed, ridiculed, demeaned, or treated in an inhumane way. And still, he continues to support her. As Ms. Banks reputation precedes her, RZA hasn't and does not want to further embarrass Banks and stands by not revealing all of the details at this time. In fact, after the incident, concerned about her welfare, RZA made sure she made it back to her hotel safely." Read more here.

(Radio.com) Pink, Harry Styles and Macklemore lead a star-studded lineup at CBS Radio's fifth annual We Can Survive breast cancer benefit concert Saturday night (Oct. 21) at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Darius Rucker Talks New Album 'When Was the Last Time'

(Radio.com) Darius Rucker returns with his fifth country album, When Was the Last Time, and he switched gears this time around. Working with producer Ross Copperman (Dierks Bentley, Brett Eldredge, Keith Urban) for the first time, the country crooner says the laid-back producer helped to craft his latest album into his ideal vision.

"I think having a new producer doing things a little differently is really the story of this album," Rucker says. "Even with the Hootie and the Blowfish records, we worked with Don Gehman on almost every record, so I'm used to having that comfort of working with the same producer. And I loved working with Frank Rogers on my previous (solo) records; he's my brother, and I'm sure we'll work together again. But we did such a change-up with this. I knew I liked Ross's sound from the records he'd done with Dierks and some other people and when I met him, I instantly took to him and thought, 'I want some of this kid's energy.' That kid is never not laughing. He's also a friggin' genius with the equipment and coming up with things that really make the record."

Rucker says this time around the album's vocals were done in a new way thanks to Copperman, who suggested he sing each song a couple times and if it felt good the track was done.

"This was as far as you could get from any kind of tedious thing," Rucker confesses. "It was really three days, altogether, of recording music. One time, Ross came into Charleston to work, and we had planned five days to do six songs' and we did all six in one day. I was like, 'Wow, okay!'"

The singer describes the album as being more upbeat and current radio single "For the First Time" is just one example. The song asks, "When was the last time you did something for the first time? Let yourself go, baby, follow that feeling -- maybe something new is what you're needing."

"You say you never danced to a dashboard singing R.E.M. under summer stars / Never leaned back on a jet black Chevy blowing smoke rings in the dark," Rucker sings.

"Derrick George brought me part of a chorus that already had that line about R.E.M. We played so much R.E.M. in the day, so when I heard that, I said, 'Dude, I love it -- let's write this,'" he recalls. Read more here.
