"Today I wanted to leave this earth," she wrote. "Being completely selfish for once. Never thought I'd get to such a low point. But..don't believe the blogs you read..no one was cheated on and I'm not a bad person..everyone is hurt and everyone is in a place of misunderstanding..
"But as of today, I had no single wish to see tomorrow.. But God saved me for a reason, and for that' I must be grateful.. Cuz I'm not in heaven right now for a reason. On that note..bye Instagram."
She has since deleted her Instagram account, but the post has been screen-shotted by other Instagram accounts and shared. Read more here.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bauer has accused Shelton of providing false testimony in reference to a trip to Cancun, Mexico. "Shelton resorts to apparent false testimony," states a memorandum on behalf of the plaintiff.
"He declares that the Article's depiction of his Mexico trip was 'fabricated,' because the 'partying' described at the Hotel ME Melia in Cancun could not have occurred as during his trip he 'did not stay at the hotel ME Melia Cancun or visit it.' Yet, indisputable photographic evidence places Shelton at that very hotel and with the blonde guest described in the Article." Read the Shelton camp's response here.
Despite his success, Avicii says, the touring lifestyle has gotten in the way of more important things in life. "I will however never let go of music," wrote Avicii in a statement on his official site.

One part of me can never say never, I could be back …but I won't be right back." He also expressed gratitude for the road he's traveled so far. Read more here.
During an interview on The Dame Dash Radio Show, Faith said, "We actually are in development with a hologram [company]. I don't necessarily know to what extent I'm going to perform with it, but I definitely want to debut it probably in the first video for the album and maybe use it a little bit performance-wise, but that depends on a lot of things."
Faith took the hologram conversation to new heights when she confessed it could possibly become a part in the oft-talked about Bad Boy reunion tour. Read more here.

"I'm grateful that we are getting to celebrate some life in another album," Paslay says in a press release. "I always strive for, as an artist and musician, something that lasts.
"Not just popular now. It's not just something on a page, but it somehow finds you in a restaurant, or on a dance floor, or in your car alone that makes you go 'what is that?'" See the track details here.
"I worked with a lot of new people on RipCORD, and Greg was one I'd wanted to work with for a long time," Urban says in a press release. "He'd been writing a lot with J., and so the three of us spent a couple days at Greg's studio to jam and see if we clicked.
"Greg had this cool chord progression, and I grabbed my guitar and started singing a melody. J. suggested the title, and before we knew it, we were talking about growing up and all the things you do, no matter where you are in the world, and the song just took off from there."
The track is the third single from Urban's ninth studio album RipCORD, which will be released on May 6. Stream the new song here.
The boy band super group includes *NSYNC's Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick, Backstreet Boys members Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean and Nick Carter, 98 Degrees' Jeff Timmons and O-Town's Erik-Michael Estrada.
The three-minute ballad kicks off with whistling before each singer trades verses and harmonizes on the chorus, singing, "Nothing's gonna save us in the end."
'In the wild west, to fight the undead you have to resurrect 90s boy bands," the movie's tagline reads in the trailer. Stream the song here.
"Controlla" (feat. Popcaan) sounds like a sister song to Rihanna's "Work," both in terms of beat and melody. On the song, Drake sings about how much he cares for a girl, going so far as to take more control in the bedroom because she asks. Popcaan adds an auto tuned reggae feel in between Drake's verses.
On the other end of specturm, Drake covered the Jackson Browne classic "These Days." According to Pitchfork, "These Days" is for a cover album and won't end up on Drake's latest project. Read more here.
In a new interview with Pitchfork, producer James Ryan Ho, better know as Malay, discussed the long awaited project. "A lot of the stuff on this new album was done with a handheld mic sitting in the control room," said Malay.
"Frank's exploring different vibes completely on this album. I wouldn't say it's vocally looser but just his mentality; it doesn't seem as meticulous at certain times."
When pressed about a release date, Malay is optimistic. Read more here.
Named after his wife Cassidy's last name, the 13-track album will feature big names like Elle King, Trombone Shorty and Maren Morris. Based on the album's title, it makes sense that it would deal with the couple's relationship. Bentley explained, 'It's a relationship album that covers the ups and downs of the journey and ends with some self-realization and evolvement."
Detailing how individual songs cover his emotional journal, Bentley said, "The song 'Black' helps set all of that in motion at the top of the album by guiding you into the darkness and the shadows of the night. The same guy who sings 'Somewhere On A Beach' winds up growing and having enough perspective to sing something introspective like 'Different for Girls.' By the last song, he's taking a look back on love and life."Check out the track and guest list here.
The most recent proof came late Monday, March 28th, when Timberlake posted yet another behind the scenes photo in the studio. This one reveals him at work with Timbaland. Like many of his other Instagram posts from the studio, he simply captioned the shot, "Currently."
It's not the first image to emerge of the two collaborating together in the studio. Timbaland shared a photo on Instagram showing him working with Timberlake on the same day Timberlake posted a photo with Pharrell.
It seemed thanks to Timbaland and Pharrell that Timberlake was following his own pop footsteps, but then he revealed a pic with Little Big Town in the studio, which got some thinking he could be going country, or at least a pop-country hybrid. Read more here.
"Been working on something special for Sunday and now it's official' I'm joining @KelseaBallerini for a duet at #ACMs on CBS. Don't miss us!" the Jonas tweeted.

This year, a Drake remix, a Puff Daddy collaboration, and plenty of shout-outs on Empire have kicked off a new phase in her career. Now you can listen to her new mixtape Lil Kim Season, titled for her image's unique way of popping up in pop culture.
"It's funny, because a lot of times, the people around me will say, 'Oh my gosh, it's like it's Lil' Kim season,'" she told Billboard. "It always seems like it's a time every year when everyone's either playing my music or paying homage with some of my most iconic looks."

Set against a relaxed beat with bells to accentuate the rhythm, the track features Fetty Wap rapping about how great he is, and all the wonderful things-money, cars, women-that have come his way as a result.
It's a big, boastful song, but he also uses it as a reminder that he's capable of great music and listeners shouldn't overlook his skills. On the track, he raps about his original hit "Trap Queen." "Them hoes was like, 'He singing this sh-'/'Or is it Auto-Tune or is he really singing this sh-?'" he raps, describing his unique voice that combines melody with written verse (via Rolling Stone).
He even tweeted a similar message shortly before releasing "Zoovie Zoo." Lesson learned: Don't put Fetty Wap in the corner. See the tweet and stream the track here.
