Taylor Swift Stage Rushing Fan Committed To Psychiatric Hospital

(Radio.com) The fan who rushed the stage during Taylor Swift's concert at Petco Park last August has been committed to a psychiatric hospital, authorities have confirmed.

The San Diego County District Attorney's Office confirmed to Radio.com that Christian Ewing was found not competent to stand to trial and has been committed to Patton State Hospital in San Bernardino, for a maximum of three years. The facility is authorized to administer medication involuntarily, if necessary.

Ewing was caught on camera jumping onstage as Swift performed "Style." He wrestled with security guards who immediately tried to tackle him. He broke one guard's ribs (via TMZ). Swift carried on as best as possible, but throughout her song she kept looking to her left to see what was going on.

If and when the trial resumes, Ewing will face two felony charges of assault and battery. Watch the incident here.

Previously Unreleased Lana Del Rey Song 'Super Movie' Goes Online

(Radio.com) A previously unreleased Lana Del Rey song has surfaced online. The tune, "Super Movie," shares a chorus with a previously leaked demo, "On Our Way," from 2012, reported NME.

While the two songs have some of the same lyrics, "Spin me round kiss me in your Chevrolet / I love you more with each and everyday," "Super Movie" is certainly the more haunting of the two.

Reportedly, Lana Del Rey is working on the follow-up to her 2015 album Honeymoon. Last December, she told NME that she had "early thoughts about what I'd like to do with [the album]."

"My label, Interscope, is pretty flexible and open to my records coming out at any time, so I don't have that pressure. I'm just happy to be able to keep on making music I can stand behind," she said. "That's enough for me."

In March, Del Rey shared a picture of herself in the recording studio. Check out "Super Movie" here.

Britney Spears Jokes About Sexy Make Me (Oooh) Video

(Radio.com) If you've caught one of the sneak peeks of Britney Spears' new music video for "Make Me (Oooh)" then you've seen the scantily clad male backup dancers and her revealing one-piece outfit. But that's all in the name of female empowerment, the pop star jokes.

Spears sat down with her fans on Tumblr Monday evening (July 25) and answered their questions about her new album. When a fan asked about her music video for the project's first single, Spears answered, "There's lots of female empowerment. Lol."

Lorde Shares Humorous Uber Ride With Fans

(Radio.com) Who doesn't have an Uber story? The popular ride app comes with all kinds of characters, be they drivers or passengers. While using Uber on Tuesday (July 26), Lorde shared a few of the more laughable moments from her ride.

Lorde tweeted that her Uber driver was all sorts of chatty about giving a celebrity a ride. But it wasn't her. No, apparently the passenger before Lorde was another famous person, and the driver didn't realize he'd provided rides to back-to-back celebrities. She wrote in the first tweet, "uber driver currently busting a nut about the fact that there was a 'celebrity passenger' just before me."

She went on to share how she was sure her driver was disappointed in her as a passenger because she didn't live up to his previous guest. With her trademark dry wit, Lorde tweeted that her ride "sparkles significantly less for him," and he was probably still dreaming of sharing a car with his previous passenger. Read more here.
