While Swift was singing her huge hit 'Bad Blood," she kneeled down on the stage. After she stood up the fan pushed his upper body up on the stage and nearly grabbed her leg just above the ankle.
The man immediately slipped back down to his front row seat and was escorted out of the arena by security. Swift didn't miss a beat and carried on like a true professional.
The incident was caught on video and posted on Instagram by user @allenavw with the caption: 'Some crazy town grabbed at Swifty Swift tonight! Jeez buddy, keep you hands to yourself. Glad security was on him right away and of course Taylor carried on like a pro." Read more here.
Moracchioli says: "There's been some suggestions on doing the Ghostbusters song for a while so I finally got around to it. This is a pretty nostalgic song and movie for me, so it was a blast doing it."
Moracchioli has released three full-length albums of covers which are available to buy digitally through iTunes. Check out his metal cover version of the Ghostbusters theme here.
According to TMZ, Shelton is threatening In Touch magazine, after continuing to print about the alleged affair, and claims that Cady Groves is the instigator.
Shelton had his lawyer send a letter to the company, asking that they withdraw that story that says Groves was "infatuated" with the "Sangria" singer.
The letter goes on to say, "Mr. Shelton did not have a sexual relationship or affair of any nature whatsoever with Ms. Groves." Read more here.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rime alleges that Moschino and Jeremy Scott (Moschino's Creative Director) took his mural "Vandal Eyes," and put it on Perry's dress.
"If this literal misappropriation were not bad enough, Moschino and Jeremy Scott did their own painting over that of the Artist--superimposing the Moschino and Jeremy Scott brand names in spray-paint style as if part of the original work," the complaint states. Read more here.
So, perhaps that's what former G.O.O.D. Music artist/former Def Jam signee CyHi the Prynce was thinking when he released a harsh new song about Kanye West called "Elephant in the Room." Or perhaps, he was just really mad at Kanye and needed to express it. Publicly.
The song begins with a fan asking CyHi about where his album is and then CyHi comes in asking 'Hey 'Ye, do you know what it feel like? / To really be signed to you in real life?" before saying "I hope when I'm done that we're still tight."
Later in the song, he invades Def Jam's offices, saying "OK, everybody on the f-in' floor/you and you by the double doors!/That was three shots and it holds 15 so I got a dozen more!" Which will probably not make Def Jam's staff sorry that he's no longer with the label.

Joel, of course, has an open-ended residency across the river at New York's Madison Square Garden, where he's been playing one concert per month since January of 2014, and will continue to do so indefinitely. But he's always been held near and dear to Long Islanders, much as Bruce Springsteen is in New Jersey, or Bob Seger in Detroit.
And at last nights show, the "Piano Man" was joined by another New York icon, Paul Simon, who, in the interest of honesty, admitted that he's actually a fan of the Islanders' arch-rivals, the New York Rangers. Boos ensued. Read more here.
The couple are the latest in a rash of high profile music divorces including Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, Gavin Rossdale & Gwen Stefani and Reba McEntire.
Malik has not publicly commented on the split. She tweeted, "Just Want To Thank All My Family, Friends And Fans For Helping Me Get Through This Hard Time! Because Of You All Im Still Smiling." She her second tweet here.
Macklemore posted a message about the song to the duo's website. It reads: I wish that I could say that I was in a 'better place" when I found out the news. It would make for a far more polished and respectable story. But I think back to that night: praying on the floor at 2 am as Tricia went to the bathroom to take a pregnancy test I'd just purchased from Walgreens. I was scared. Scared to start working on new music. Scared of trying again and failing. Scared of the process of staring at myself through a page and seeing something that I wasn't proud of. Someone that I didn't like. Someone that wasn't ready to be a dad.
"I've always had some make-believe image in my head of who I would be as a father. I held on to clear expectations of where I wanted to be in my career, my age, my level of self-care, and my maturity. I basically assumed that I'd have it all together. But in actuality the hypothetical 'dad" version of me looked completely different than the man whose heart was beating out of his chest on the carpet, praying to a god or spirit I hadn't talked to in months. When Tricia walked out of the bathroom, I knew. And I knew I had to change.
"5 months later we were recording in a remote cabin away from the density that is Seattle. I was finally having fun in the studio for the first time in years. Songs were getting made, finally. I was going back to the city once a week to attend birthing class with Tricia. When I got back to the cabin the next day, Ryan had made a new beat that would eventually become the song that you're listening to. Half of it is advice about growing up. The other half is trying to figure out how to grow up myself.
"When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back. To look at who you are. This is why 'Growing up" felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It's where I've been the last year. Through the up and downs. We didn't want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning. Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy. Read more and check out the track here.
The song is set to appear on the follow-up to their self-titled 2014 debut which is expected to be released after they wrap up their North American tour next month.
Guitarist Michael Clifford said of the track: "I'm surprised people love that song because it's heavy as hell. I'm so happy that people are supportive of that type of music again - the type of music that we've wanted to make."
Clifford was injured in a pyro accident in London in May which resulted in the band replacing firebombs with confetti. Watch the video here.
The band features frontman Geoff Rickly and former members of Lostprophets. It's their third single from the record and follows Eyeshadow and 10,000 Summers.
In June, keyboard player Jamie Oliver revealed he had a lucky escape he encountered a mountain lion while jogging in LA. He said: "I'd decided not to wear headphones. This one thing alone probably saved my life." Watch the video here.
According to Time magazine, Instagram spokesman Gabe Madway explained the blocking of the hashtag: 'In this case, #EDM was being used to share content that violates our guidelines around nudity." Other hashtags that have been blacklisted include #weed, #sex, #lingerie and #underwear although #boxershorts is still acceptable.
Hashtags are intensely moderated on Instagram, especially following last month's fall out when the #curvy was banned. Many users were infuriated when the positive body image term was blacklisted from the app. The hashtag has since been reinstated. Read more here.

And when he plays live, he makes it a priority to give the fans a great time; he often spends more time at the edge of the runways than he does on the main stage with his band, essentially putting himself in the crowd. 'My focus in life when I'm on stage is entertaining these fans," Bryan explains. 'If it's my smile and my demeanor, if it's my song that does it, if it's me picking up a child out of the audience and letting them sing, it's not being so premeditated that you can see it from a mile away. My main thing is: I'm a fan up there that just gets to sing. That's kind of how I've always approached it."
Kill the Lights is sure to bring more fan favorites to Luke's stadium shows for years to come. The lead single, 'Kick The Dust Up," leans on the farm-party theme that's become a hallmark of his persona, but with a strange neo-Middle Eastern vibe, and has become his 13th number 1 hit. 'Move" has a familiar dance quality and 'Scarecrows" pledges allegiance to his small-town roots.
Other new songs include the sexy slow jam 'Strip It Down," the surprisingly dark 'Razor Blade" and his duet with Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild on 'Home Alone Tonight." Then there's 'To The Moon And Back," inspired by Caroline, his wife of nine years. Read more here.
It also contains metallic and geometric black and gold designs, all designed to help fans unleash their inner Bey. Fans will also be able to adorn their bodies with some of her best-known song titles including 'Flawless," 'Blow," 'Crazy in Love" and 'Put a Ring on It."
The set also boasts three honeycomb cuffs, a metallic gold 'Diva" faux necklace and an assortment of various geometric designs including a cross that will take up the wearer's entire back and a golden gun. Read more here.
Our song "Cast in Amber" is actually a sequel to a song that we released on our second album called "Etched in Stone". I should preface that "Etched in Stone" has an interesting back-story in and of itself, as I originally wrote that song with a gothic rock band I was in during college, prior to URN, called Sacrosanct. Michelle Belanger, who most people would know from being the blind-folded psychic on the reality show Paranormal State and has come into great success as a writer, was my singer in that band and it ended up becoming a fairly popular song for us in the circuits that we played back in those days.
Regrettably, Sacrosanct would never record any material as, well, we were in college and we placed our priorities on actually graduating. (Yeah, we were nerds.) My grandmother had passed away from cancer around that time and that was the primary muse of my writing that song. She was very special to me and most of the music I write is a catharsis from some darker or negative emotion that I'm experiencing at that time and am trying to purge it.
I would eventually release that song ten years later once URN had established ourselves and I brought Michelle into the studio to do guest vocals and we both felt a sense of closure and accomplishment. I adjusted the lyrics so that it focused more on the loss of a loved one in general, leaving a stark emptiness in a person having to move forward.
Now, "Cast in Amber" takes on the opposite perspective, giving an even more somber focus. It is from the perspective of the person that has passed on and is retrospectively looking back in hope that the impression they left for their loved ones is a positive one.
So one would ask, "how can you write from a dead person's perspective?" The obvious answer is that you can't.
I, like millions of people who were living in America at the end of the first decade of the 21st century, had gone through a great deal of loss in both my personal and professional life. It catapulted me into a massive despair and I spiraled to view my existence as one colossal punch line.
This was all in my head of course, as my life at that time wasn't good by any means, but it was worth living. Nonetheless, I had considered suicide at one point and "Cast in Amber" would be in a way, not so much a suicide letter, but the words I would express if I did actually end my existence.
The song really was built around the melody in the interlude, which derived from a vocal exercise that I came up with when I was taking classical voice lessons at Columbia College in Chicago. In the initial version, I sang the part a cappella (and still do when we perform the song live). However, when we were in studio recording the song, we had our violinist at the time play the part and we felt it just really gave it a whole new dimension.
We felt so strongly about the song, this is why we made it the first single off our new release and filmed the video for it based on the lyrical narrative that song tries to portray. It is our intention that the listener would find solace in a time of despair and to hopefully re-discover the beautiful gift that life is.
