One nosy fan called out a crowd member exhibiting such behavior a Beyonce show near Paris at Stade de France last Thursday. The epic video has gone viral, sending a clear message to Pokemon Go players around the world: "Live in the moment (especially when the moment includes Beyonce)."
It's not just Beyonce who's been affected. Rihanna has experienced the same thing, and had a clear message for her fans. "I don't want to see you texting your boyfriends or girlfriends," she said at her Saturday show in Lille, France. "I don't want to see you catching any Pokemons up in this bitch." Read more here.
"I've never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn't happened. I'm stagnant, I stay still and don't just sit with myself first and ask 'is this where I am, whole heartedly?'"
"I've always told the truth," she continued. " I'm always true to my word, I've shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. I had to get that out."
It's worth noting that Selena captioned the post "Not being negative about anything I've done. I'm grateful for every single moment I get here -Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much."
What exactly motivated the post is unclear, but a fan captured Gomez giving an emotional address to fans at the show. "The next song, before I go home, is a song that's so important to me because I get really frustrated," she said, referencing "Kill Em With Kindness." "I get stupid sometimes. I say things that I don't mean, or that come out wrong just because I care so badly."
"I do know that deep down in my heart that I have to believe that we can love each other and always be kind no matter what it takes in us," she continued. "I believe that we can do that, no matter what." See Selena's full post and the fan footage here.
On Sunday (July 24), Meek continued to shade Budden by posting an unflattering photo of him on Instagram. The shot came from over the weekend when Budden chased two paparazzi who were tailing his car and attempting to get pictures of him exiting (via XXL).
"Chasing opps!" Meek wrote as a caption with two laughing emojis, accusing the rapper of using his low-key beefs to enter the limelight once again. "he live a wild life in real life lol," he added.
It's not the first time Meek has gone after Budden since he dropped his first dis track against Drake, "Making a Murderer Part 1," which also names Meek in the opening verse. In early July, Meek shared another photo of Budden on Instagram, and captioned it, "He's been dead since 2003 it's evident… We don't talk to dead people unless they presidents." Check out both post here.
'We're about 30 shows in so far, and I feel like we are just getting started'the songs from the new album are really connecting like nothing I've experienced before, the band and crew are in a great groove and we're having the time of our lives out there," said Bentley in a prepared statement.
"I love having Randy out there with us, and I'm looking forward to picking up Drake and his guys for the rest of the Fall. We're going to make summer last as long as possible out here on the 'Beach.'" See the new cities here.
In a video, she announced that she has been cast to play a pivotal role in A&E's Bates Motel for the fifth and final season. She said, "It's your girl RiRi. Let me tell you what a bad b-- is about to do.
"I am about to check into the 'Bates Motel' very soon. Guess what else? Guess who's playing Marion?" Actress Janet Leigh originally played Marion, an ill fated guest, in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho (on which Bates Motel is based). Read more here.
"I felt like I couldn't make music sober, I couldn't enjoy my money sober," he told the Times. "Why would I wanna go to a club and couldn't smoke or drink? I felt like sex wouldn't be good sober. I associated everything with being high…. In hindsight I see it for what it was: I was a drug addict. I was naive to the fact that I was numb."
Mane added that numbness made him indifferent to the ups and downs of navigating his rap career. "I can't say I felt happy my last six, seven years in the music business. I was just numb. You told me that I was doing good or told me I was doing bad, you hated me or loved me, either which way I greeted with nonchalance. It was sincere nonchalance--like, I really didn't care."

Timberlake shared video from the American Century Championship golf event in Lake Tahoe on Saturday (July 23) that showed all three breaking out their best dance moves.
Ribeiro clearly has the best swagger, moving his legs with a slight dip that defined his character's cheesy dance move, but Timberlake and Curry hold their own, too. Check out the posts from Timberlake and Curry here.
The list was published by BBC Radio 1 and broadcast to insomniacs around the world, a "Bedtime Mix" designed to turn restless tossers and turners into dreamers.
Yorke was sure to plug his own material with a solo version of Radiohead's "Bloom" and the band's "Melatonin," named for the supplement that helps users fall asleep.
All in all, Yorke's suggestions make a groovy alternative to counting sheep. An animatronic voice begins with mix by saying, "If you're awake by the end of it, I have done something wrong." Read more here.
Last Thursday (July 21), she borrowed from another band's important message when she takes the stage to perform U2's "One" on ABC's Greatest Hits.
The six-week event has been showcasing some of music's greatest hits from different decades. Last Thursday marked the 1990-1995 round, and Cara brought her vocal runs and at-times gravelly voice to the moving song that preaches love over hate. Seal, Boyz II Men, Little Big Town, Bonnie Raitt and more were on hand to perform other big hits from that time period. Seal did "Kiss From a Rose" while Little Big Town covered Oasis' "Wonderwall."
The song choice for the young singer doesn't seem accidental. Her latest song "Scars to Your Beautiful" examines different kinds of beauty to offer listeners an uplifting message about accepting and loving yourself. Watch her bring her unique touch to "One" here.
But she's just revisited that song with a brand new video, in collaboration with the Deaf West Theatre; the new clip features the Theatre actors signing the song's lyrics in American Sign Language, and Michaelson signing a bit herself.
Micahelson tells Radio.com that she got the idea for the video just a few weeks ago, after seeing the Deaf West Theater Company's Spring Awakening cast perform on the TONY Awards.
"There were deaf and hard of hearing actors on stage using American Sign Language, built into their choreography. It was really interesting and beautiful. I thought, 'What a cool thing to meld with pop music,' and I went online and I looked up 'ASL,' and there were a lot of fan made music videos [in ASL], but there didn't seem to be many videos made by the actual artists. I thought it would be nice to do something really simple sand really elegant showcasing ASL, so I reached out to Michael Arden, who was the director of that performance, so he got six of the actors to come in for a couple of days, and we worked on the interpretation, and then we shot for six or seven hours in Brooklyn. It was a really interesting experience for me."
She says that the fan reaction has been positive, although some are confused about whether or not deaf or hard of hearing people actually enjoy music.
"That's a totally understandable question to ask, but deaf and hard of hearing people love lyrics, and rhythm, and they feel the bass. There's a whole community of people who the music world doesn't realize is interested. I thought it would be a nice way to bring attention to them." Read more here.
A key business partner in the early days of Drake, Inc. was his mom: On Instagram, Drake shared a note he wrote her when money was tight, eBay receipts were stacking up, and his photo wire subscription was getting a bit too expensive.
"Dear Mom," Drake wrote, "I have cancelled the WireImage subscription due to my Ebay charges coming to more than I had planned for. Please know that you will [be] reimbursed fully through several methods and or means of payment. Thanks for temporarily funding my music and wardrobe."
The photo was captioned: "eBay was the addiction back in 2006. Def come a long way and it's safe to say I most likely settled this debt. #NothingWithoutMyMom #IProbablyBoughtSomeEvisuJeans," See the post here.
After writing several records that were more story-focused, I really wanted to get back to the "diary" with this latest release. HOWEVER, I let myself do one "story song," as long as I promised it would have a personal twist.
"Not Everybody Runs" is several "snapshots" of people who have found themselves facing difficult choices. I think these choices stretch beyond simple right and wrong, and I think the actions these people ultimately take reflect a unique bravery in each individual.
The song was an exercise in creating scenes outside of my own experience (I've been lucky enough to avoid these particular moments so far) - trying to look at these moments in earnest, as if I were there. We all have our consequences to face. When those moments come for me, I hope I can resist the urge to run.
I recorded "Not Everybody Runs" in my basement with very limited gear, and I loved the intimacy and solitude of recording the new album this way. It really allowed me to live inside the songs and create recordings that very closely resembled the music I heard in my head. I also found myself banging that same head against the wall sometimes while I figured out what the hell I was doing.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
