"I don't pay too much attention to what people even say about me," the singer told Fader when he was asked if he could relate to Swift's situation. "I just tend to take it for what it is when I meet them people in real life and have a conversation with them. If they're cool with me, then I base my relationship on that."
"In terms of relating to it, of course I relate to things being written about us all the time. But I don't listen to it," Malik continued. "I rate her as an artist, I think she's cool, I think she's successful, and I think she deserves her success because she's worked hard. That's just how I look at it. I did a song with her ('I Don't Wanna Live Forever" from the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack), it was fun, she was professional." Read morehere.

The following evening, on Saturday (September 9) she dedicated her show and its proceeds to those displaced by the hurricane. During that show, the singer started crying after performing "What About." But it wasn't the hurricane victims the singer was crying for. This time it was for herself.
"What About" is featured on Jackson's 1997 The Velvet Rope album and it details a woman in an abusive relationship. As male and female dancers behind her acted out the lyrics, the song vividly came to life.
"What about the times you hit my face? /What about the times you kept on when I said, 'No more please?' / What about those things?" she sang. Currently in the middle of a divorce from husband Wissam Al Mana, Jackson finished the song and paused. Clearly in tears, she wiped her eyes and said, "This is me," as she pointed to the female backup dancers behind her who acted out an abusive relationship. The audience were supportive as many could be heard screaming, "We love you Janet!" Watch the emotional momenthere.

"They found more shelter in a big closet and were in that closet for a long time, and they made it. Luckily, a lot of people made it."
"These communities are facing an uphill battle. And they're facing years of cleanup. So many people are displaced," Chesney continued. "And, yes, we will rebuild, and we will recover." Read morehere.

In the teaser trailer for her long awaited sophomore album/visual album Double Dutchess, which arrives Sept. 22, Fergie decided to include some of those communications in an effort to embrace the haters and empower herself to give her all to the new project.
Fergie revealed to 92.3 AMP Radio's Shoboy and Nina that she was actually kind of surprised that she was able to use the negativity to her advantage.
"I'm not a negative person. I'm all about positivity and trying to exclude the negative noise like fear," Fergie says. "So that, for me felt kind of weird -- putting them out there and embracing it -- and it became my fuel actually. Negative things being said brought out the fight inside of me and brought out my Rocky Balboa."
"I don't usually acknowledge anything negative, but I wanted to put it out there because I felt like, 'Do people know that I'm a human being and I hear all this and I see all this?' I didn't even put the worst ones!" Read morehere.
Alan Jackson penned "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" a few weeks after the attacks. "I just pretty much visualized a lot of those scenes and stories I'd heard and seen on television or heard people talk about," he said in a release.
"The song came out of nowhere in the middle of the night - the chorus did. Just a gift," Jackson added. "And I got up and scribbled it down and put the melody down so I wouldn't forget it, and then the next day I started piecing all those verses together that were the thoughts I'd had or visuals I'd had, and'that was about it." The song was later performed at the 35th Annual CMA Awards.
"It was hard enough to go out there and sing something new anyway and then just the topic made it nerve-wracking to do," Jackson said. "I didn't think about what was gonna happen or anything. We just sang it, and I just remember other than being relieved that I got through it, I just felt very proud that it seemed to cause a reaction in people." Read morehere.
