On the island of St. Kitts, there is a law that prohibits cursing on stage. 50 Cent allegedly knew about the law but still dropped a curse in the song. After his appearance, authorities came and charged 50 Cent with using explicit language in public.
In a statement released to Rolling Stone, the rapper's representative said since there were no clean versions of his tracks, profanity-laden were used. "[Curtis "50 Cent"] Jackson was only booked to host the show, when he arrived at the festival organizers asked him to perform, he obliged and used the DJ they had there," his representative told Rolling Stone. "Unfortunately, they didn't have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance." Read more here.

DeLonge tweeted at Barker requesting the two get together at a new and massive water park in Garden Grove, CA, located about half way between their respective homes in San Diego and Los Angeles. "Let's go to Great Wolf Lodge in OC and do water slides together and post it for fans.." said DeLonge.
Barker responded positively with, "Ha Ha, I'm in 100." The offer to meet comes just days after DeLonge took to Facebook to remind fans he hadn't actually quit the band. "I'm actually talking to Travis about us right now… Never did quit, remember?" he said in a post last Tuesday (June 21). DeLonge's response appeared to be provoked by an article that stated he left the band to "focus on UFOs." Read more here.

Before the special appearance frontman Chris Martin said they would take a song request from Instagram. Then, the stage screen projected a video of Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis. In the clip, Eavis explained that people often ask him who he would love to play the festival and he responds most of his dream choices "are dead now." But he added that he has always wanted The Bee Gees to perform because they have "lovely songs."
"Michael, we can do one better," Martin said. "We can bring out an actual Bee Gee. Here comes Mr. Barry Gibb. Let's be respectful." The audience erupted into screams as Gibb walked out on the stage. Martin and Gibb covered "To Love Somebody" acoustically before the full band joined in for a performance of "Staying Alive". Read more here.
Shelton rewrote the lyrics to his 2014 song "Bringing Back the Sunshine" off his album by the same name. The upbeat song features a big anthemic chorus that is pure country through and through.
"Happy to be back to kickoff NBC Sports' second season of NASCAR coverage and be able to rework my song, 'Bringing Back the Sunshine' for the opening theme song," said Shelton in a press release. "I am a true NASCAR fan and love being around the sport, spending time with the drivers, so this is a lot of fun for me." Read more here.
Cesario's daughter Rosie Skripkunis tells NBC Philadelphia that she was contacted by Bon Jovi's management team after she shared a photo of her mother, who is suffering from stage four lung cancer, holding a sign expressing her desire to meet the singer.

X Ambassadors tapped none other than Ray Donovan himself aka Liev Schreiber himself to head the video's narrative. In it, Schreiber and others sit alone at a bar contemplating life. The band, A$AP Ferg and Jamie N Commons appear in various alcoholic beverages and "speak" to the low lifes drinking them.
As each talking head featured in the drink sings the lyrics, they give new meaning to the words: "I'm nothing but a low life/ Thinking about my own life/ I'm trying to fight the good own fight/ But after it all, I'm still just a low life."
The video would fit perfectly in an anti-drinking campaign. Watch it here.
What they probably don't expect is for the Piano Man himself to take the stage. But that's exactly what happened June 24 in Huntington, New York, on Joel's beloved Long Island.
The icon's set featured "You May be Right" and covers of songs by the Rolling Stones, the Beatles (via Joe Cocker) and Led Zeppelin. Joel shared the stage with Big Shot, a band that has long idolized and devoted their musical careers to bringing Joel's hits to life.
As shocked as the audience was, the surprise might not have been all that surprising to Joel obsessives. Guitarist and singer Mike DelGuidice, guitarist Tommy Byrnes and drummer Chuck Burgi are all members of Joel's touring group and are currently working as part of the backing band for his Madison Square Garden shows. Watch the Piano Man's set here.
The album will be reissued next month to mark its 20th anniversary using the band's original tapes - which weren't used at the time due to a legal battle with Cradle Of Filth's label, Cacophonous Records.
Filth says of Birmingham's Zellar Studio: "It was owned by the guys in Magnum. It was actually half-studio, half-rendezvous for the Boy Scouts every Wednesday afternoon.
"There were also ballet lessons on Monday afternoons, so we had to stop making music. It was quite ironic really - the fact that this huge, epic black metal record was brought to ground by little girls in ballet shoes and their mums."
In the promo, the vocalist also recalls getting "horrendously drunk" with Venom frontman Cronos who was brought in as a guest on Haunted Shores Of Babylon. Read about the and watch the video here.
But Leach now says it's "fun" to get out of the tour bus and socialize with the general public. He tells German festival Rock Am Ring: "I'm all about just going away and escaping. If I'm in a nice city or there's a park nearby, I just go and get lost in the city. That's one of my favorite things to do on tour.
"I really enjoy going to a pub by myself and striking up a conversation with a stranger, making a new friend. That excites me. It's something that I use to help inspire me to write as well - just interacting or even just observing people in general. It's fun, people watching - going to a place and just sitting outside and watching people walk by. I love that kind of stuff." Read more here.
Hval says of the promo: "What does eternity feel like? How do you 'live' when there is no death? Usually, the vampire is depicted as a lonesome, all-knowing and ancient creature combining violence, aggressive sexuality and deceitful youth.
"The pack behind the video for Female Vampire wanted to explore vampiric eternity in a different narrative: in a group of romancing friends. The vampire friends move through their hometown of Oslo, partaking in public and private rituals of moving together.
"We also wanted to combine ideas from old vampire trash movies and modern trashy iPhone videos, resulting in an enigmatic world of time-lapse like slow motion where everything is always moving, or moving on. Not there, or not there yet." Watch the video here.
Also appearing on Cultura Cura are Anna Murphy from Eluveitie, Tommy Vetterli of Coroner, Moonsorrow's Henri Sorvali, Joza Tadic of Then as well as Chris Neary, Manu Rindlisbacher and Ingrid Lukas.
Tadic says: "Needless to say I'm happy as one can be and hope you stay tuned for a sinful journey. Not long now." The artwork and tracklist for the 12-song record can be viewed here.
In the four-minute video, Khaled and his crew battle prison guards while his friends rap along dressed in suits and ties. Despite the impressive performances, the white prison guards seem uninterested, and they're standing by with their weapons ready.
