The no-nonsense star stopped her show to deal with the problem, and a fan in the audience captured the moment. As her band began playing the intro to her song "White Liar," Lambert stepped toward the front of the stage to speak with the audience members interrupting her. When she got back to the mic, she explained to the crowd, "Alright you guys, we're gonna continue our song in just a second, when these guys are done being our opening act." She then turned to her security. "Can we deal with that?" she asked.
Presumably retorting to their complaints about being forced to leave, Lambert mocked their reactions. "Super cool, dude. Super cool," she said before addressing the audience. "Okay, sorry. Sometimes you just have to ditch a douchebag every now and then!" The crowd cheered in support and Lambert got underway once again. Watch the moment captured here.
It's been no secret that the band's former drummer, Spencer Smith has been battling addiction. Brendon Urie has been vocal about the track "This Is Gospel" having been written about his friend and former bandmate. So when frontman Urie announced they'd be playing "Gospel" next, fans were elated when his guitar was hand-delivered by none other than Smith.
A shirtless Urie explained Smith has been sober for "almost two years now." "If you know anyone that's been going through that," he said, "give them all that love." After handing off the guitar and sharing a hug, Urie dedicated the tune. "This is for my buddy Spencer!"
The band was also joined on stage by Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz, who took up the job of flag bearer for Panic!'s hit "Victorious." Read more here.
During the appearance, Swift took over Kelly Rowland's part of the song while Nelly rapped along. It wasn't the first time Swift and Nelly teamed up. He has taken the stage with Swift during several of her tours, including last year, when he joined her and Haim for the rapper's hit "Hot In Herre."
"She's just a dope person," Nelly told Rolling Stone. "She ain't got no ill wills or nothing like that, and that's kind of hard when you come from where we come from. You rarely come across those type of people. It's kind of like, Taylor Swift and my granny. Who doesn't love both of those people?" Check it out here.
The Canadian rapper took the stage during Boi-1da's set and performed some of his biggest hits of late: "Jumpman," "Back to Back," "Energy," and the DJ Khaled collaboration, "For Free."

Wyclef says that the EP is a fitting introduction for his next album. "My goal for J'ouvert was to pick up where I left off after 'Sweetest Girl' and [Shakira's] 'Hips Don't Lie,'" he told Rolling Stone. "I had these Caribbean sonics haunting my brain and I knew this EP would be the start to what would become the Carnival 3 album."
Rolling Stone reports that Carnival III: Road to Clefication will be released next summer to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the musician's original Carnival. Check out the track details here.
The rapper designed and released the Classic Leather "Perfect Split" earlier this year, and in the new video directed by Nabil he opens up about the nexus between his approach to music and his kicks.
Lamar recalls when he first started rapping, and connects it back to the shoe styles he saw in the classroom. "By the time I started writing, when I was 13, I knew from the jump I wanted something that was original, something that was classic," he says in the video. "You think about rhymes and style, you always want a classic feel, so my first introduction to a classic shoe was the moment I stepped in school and I said to myself 'I want to put something down on paper.'"
It just so happened that Reebok had the most popular shoe at the time. He adds, "Everybody in the classroom was wearing Reebok Classics." Read more here.
The rap duo released their latest video Monday (August 8), and in it they party at spa with an eclectic cast of attendees. Rae Sremmurd have been clever about taking rap tropes and spinning them around.
Like many a video before "Set the Roof," there's no shortage of scantily clad women shaking their derrieres, cash money raining down and bottles popping in the brothers' newest visual. But within those familiar scenes is an alien enjoying the party as well.
Brothers Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown pour out a bottle over a fierce looking alien who's just there to get down. Things take a turn when a larger woman dressed in a neon blue dress enters the spa and starts busting a move with the alien. Because, you know, the club. Watch the NSFW video here.
Meshiaak features former Slayer, Anthrax, Testament and Iced Earth drummer Jon Dette, Teramaze guitarist Dean Wells, former 4-Arm frontman Danny Tomb and bassist Nick Walker.
Tomb says: "I would have to say that At The Edge Of The World would be the one we'd love to get out there as a single. "It's the kind of song that would speak to people on a lot of different levels, something that most people would be able to connect with fairly easily.
"It's a song that is very close to me personally, especially when it came to the lyrics. It's where I've found myself in the last three years and my moments of doubt, trials and frustrations concerning experiences I've had to go through over that time." Check out the track here.
It'll get underway at the Victoria And Albert museum, London, on September 10, and along with Floyd memorabilia, the exhibit will also feature a range of items from the era.
A statement from the museum reads: "This major exhibition will explore the era-defining significance and impact of the late 1960s, expressed through some of the greatest music and performances of the 20th century alongside fashion, film, design and political activism.
"The exhibition considers how the finished and unfinished revolutions of the time changed the way we live today and think about the future." Read more here.
"I've got to be honest with you, there's not a lot that surprises me anymore. I don't really take the calls anymore where somebody gets on the phone with me and says, 'Are you sitting down?' It's not necessary for me anymore.
"There's always twists and turns, and you've got to learn how to be as positive as you can be, because the industry can be really, really negative. But I always think about it from the fact of the matter that I'm still the 15-year-old kid in the middle of the audience looking up at the artist that I'm watching, and I'm still just enamored by that.
"That's what we really try to do day in and day out - make sure that the audience is 100% taken care of at all times." Read more here.
The follow-up to 2014's Shelter is a concept album - and vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Neige says Kodama - which is Japanese for 'tree spirit' - was influenced by Japanese culture and Hayao Miyazaki's 1997 animation Princess Mononoke.
He tells Noisey: "It's an album about the confrontation of the natural world and the human world. The concept of the album came after I watched Princess Mononoke - in the film, it's exactly that idea, of the two different worlds that try to live together.
"They struggle, and I think we are really busy taking care of our little programs that we forget there is another world around us that is being neglected.
"Nature always inspires us, and also it has kind of an urban side because I'm living in the city - it's like a mix of very mortal things and very spiritual things." Listen to the new song here.
