Canadian rockers Nickelback took to Twitter to have a little fun at Kanye's expense. "Good news: we're working on new music," the band said in their tweet.
They then added the following good natured jab at the hip hop star, "Bad news for us: @kanyewest 'Swish' will be the best album of all time. #SWISH #Kanye" See the tweet here.
On Saturday, he tweeted his fans with two messages. "I am human and at times it can be a struggle to balance a healthy lifestyle," he wrote in the first tweet. "I'm not perfect and for that I am sorry."

Sunday night, Grande joined the Queen of pop onstage in Miami for a remorselessly flirty exchange, which ended with the ceremonial gift of plastic banana.
The stars continued the lovefest on Instagram after the show: Grande wrote "I am dead. @madonna thank you for the spanking & the banana. #rebelheart #forever #unapologeticbitches." Madonna said, "Kewtest Unapologetic Bitch EVER!! Thanks Ariana!!! Tonight was so much FUN! Miami show #rebelheartour."

'They both happened so organically," said Kelley of his collaborations with Miranda Lambert and Stevie Nicks, 'and they're both like my favorite two female singers that I said, 'I'm sorry. This has to happen.'"
Nicks appears on a Tom Petty cover of "Southern Accents" and Lambert can be heard on "I Wish You Were Here," written by Jedd Hughes. "I had sang on her second or third record [Revolution], a song we had written called 'Love Song,'" Kelley added. "So I said, 'Not to put any pressure but I'm calling in my favor from you.'" Read more here.
"It's a long story," Musgraves begins. "It just so happened that this girl - when I first moved to Nashville - she stole a bunch of s- from me and was dumb enough to post all these pictures of herself in my clothes on Facebook. … I caught her. Nothing really happened with it. They issued a warrant but then they never found her. But I did write a song about it …"
And that song is pretty blunt about the entire ordeal. "I won't get too awkward here but I have this matching bra and underwear set," Musgraves adds. "She literally did take the panties from the set and put that on Facebook too. Like what? Winner! But, yeah, the first line of the song is 'I know you stole my panties because I have the matching bra.'"

In the video, dancer Sonoya Mizuno performs a solo interpretation of the song--but her body incrementally disappears into a virtual mesh form. Inside her webbed exterior is a beating heart, elegantly representing the song's lyrical vulnerability.
"Dom&nic's vision was to merge the mechanical and organic, having been inspired by procedural cellular structures; their VFX Team created a full CG model of [Mizuno] comprising of 107 individual anatomic rigs, as well as bespoke tools to allow the seamless transformation which happens during the dance," explains the video's release. Watch the video here.
The tune is the first from Morris' upcoming album expected later this year. It can also be found on her five-song, self-titled EP, which was released in November and according to Sony Music Nashville has nearly 10 million combined streams.

Malik told The Sunday Times that the new material takes a "dirty and raw" approach to sex. "Everybody has sex, and it's something people want to hear about," he said, according to NME. "It's part of everybody's life, a very big part of life! And you don't want to sweep it under the carpet. It has to be talked about."
Since he left 1D, Malik has been a master at generating buzz--Friday will begin prove whether the hype transfers into a successful solo career. Read more here.
Longtime bandleader Watts announced that he would be leaving the show halfway through its fourth season in 2015 for The Late Late Show with James Corden. Kid Cudi replaced Watts shortly thereafter.
Host Scott Aukerman said in a press release, 'If you would have told me, when I was a teenager, listening and laughing along to Al's In 3-D album, that one day I would partner up with him, I would have asked who you were and how you got in my room. Then I would have politely shown you the door. Because that's how I was raised." Read more here.
Given the song's lyrics, including, "Baby if you wanna leave/ Come to California, be a freak like me, too/ Screw your anonymity/ Loving me is all you need to feel," the photo Lana shared makes a lot of sense. Dressed like hippies straight out of 1960s California, Lana poses in front of Misty. She looks down while holding the crook of her elbow. Misty, on the other hand, looks off into the distance.
In the tweet, Lana wrote, "'FREAK' video coming soon- starring Father John Misty and the girls from 'Music to Watch Boys to.' This isn't the pair's first collaboration. Misty opened several concerts for Lana in 2014. See the tease here.
The nearly 8-minute video has more in common with a short film, what with Cranston appearing in an extended narrative introduction. Playing a mysterious man crossed between Dapper Dan and a theater impresario, he helps Zendaya realize her dreams.
When she discovers the backstage door to the theater is locked, Cranston appears to help her gain entry. "The stage awaits," he tells her, upon which the door suddenly opens.
Dressed all in black, Zendaya sings "Neverland" while standing onstage in an empty theater amid dancers who twirl around her. At the chorus, Chmerkovskiy arrives to lead her in a couples dance.
Once the song fades out, Cranston reappears, applauding her performance. "They say that in order to succeed in this business, you need a hook," he says, holding up an umbrella. Watch the video here.
Although currently Kesha can't release new music, because doing so requires she work with producer Dr. Luke whom she has alleged abused her in the past, she chose to find a way around that musical silence.

The "Airplanes" rhymer had an answer for every point argued by people who disagreed. He even told a story of how he was flying at the same altitude as Alan Eustace, a computer scientist who parachuted from the top of Earth's stratosphere at speeds faster than sound. He claims he was aboard a plane the same time as the jump happened and he saw the balloon Eustace jumped out of five miles to his left.
This isn't the first time Bobby Ray has shared his thoughts of suspicion. He once went on a rant about how there are cloning centers for celebrities. Take a look at his latest tweets here.
2 Chainz displays his comedic side in the clip by having his head superimposed on a baby, a pianist, and even President Obama. The rapper also gave a nod to the popular "Why You Always Lying?" meme.
You can catch 2 Chainz performing around the country through February as he headlines the Watch Out tour. Watch the new video, Warning it contains explicit lyrics, here.
It was a cold winters day and I was quietly reading a book and drinking my favorite hazelnut coffee when I saw a little three year old girl building a castle made out of blocks. She was sitting on the floor by herself, silently pulling out one block at a time and very carefully and precisely adding it to her rather detailed castle with towers, moats and a dungeon. I sat watching this little girl for a long time, taking in how much effort and time she was putting into making this elaborate structure. She seemed to have it all under control, when all of a sudden she misplaced a small block on the very top of one of the towers. It felt like everything was moving in slow motion as I sat helplessly watching this little girls castle fall apart. The tower came crashing down and all of the blocks destroyed the other parts of the castle. The little girl broke down, sobbing uncontrollably.
I wasn't quite sure what to do. Should I try to comfort her? Help her? Where was her mother? Do I rebuild it for her...even though I could never build a castle as elaborate and detailed as hers? I quickly got up and started walking towards her to help, when all of a sudden the crying stopped. I'm not quite sure how she could see because her face and eyes were covered in wet tears, but she was reaching for another block. As quickly as those tears came, they left. Just like that. She grabbed another block, wiped her eyes, and put that block on top of another block, starting her castle again. She was determined. So determined. She was never going to give up until she was finished building that castle, no matter what obstacle came her way.
I was in awe. This tiny little girl had so much determination and will power. She was strong. She was courageous. She was independent. She was never going to give up. She would never take no for an answer. She was brave. Brave. Yes. I wrote this song for this little girl.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
