Miranda Lambert Opens Up About Divorce From Blake Shelton

(Radio.com) Miranda Lambert graces the cover of Cosmopolitan's December issue, where she opens up about the naturally difficult road following divorce. Lambert and her husband of four years, Blake Shelton, split in July, and Lambert isn't ready to dive back into dating just yet.

"Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whiskey, and going, 'Man, this sucks right now,'" she says about working through the relationship's end (quotes via ET).

Still, Lambert has a positive outlook on what she's been through and what she managed to build with Shelton. "Marriage is a tough business, and we gave it our best college try," she says. "I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is. I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted."

Instead of romance, Lambert has been focusing on her driving force: music. "I feel the sexiest when I'm in my element, which is playing music," she explains. "It doesn't really matter what I'm wearing necessarily or where I'm at, just on stage with my band playing music is sort of where I feel like I belong and that makes me feel sexy." Read more here.

Rick Ross Discusses 50 Cent Feud

(Radio.com) With his eighth album Black Market scheduled to hit retailers this Friday (Dec. 4), Rick Ross hit Atlanta radio station V-103 to discuss the album. Ross also talked about the war of words between his artists Meek Mill and Wale and his reignited feud with 50 Cent, but remained tight lipped about his legal troubles over the past year.

Afternoon drive host Big Tigger asked the Maybach Music Group head honcho how things were in his camp. His artists Wale and Meek Mill have been engaging in a war of words on social media ever since Wale chided his labelmate for being unprepared in his battle with Drake. According to Rick Ross, the pair have settled their differences and they appear on the same song on Ross' latest mixtape Renzel Remixes.

The portly rhymer also downplayed the problems with 50, saying the beef with his Queens nemesis "has been over." He's focused on himself and the deals he has on the table. He's in the process of renegotiating his contract at Def Jam. Ross is also figuring out if he'll keep MMG at Atlantic Records or if he'll take the label elsewhere. Tigger asked was if the drama between Ricky Rozay and 50 Cent was drummed up for publicity. Both have projects about to hit shelves. Ross also denied those accusations pointing to his music getting positive reviews from fans and critics before his issues with 50 resurfaced. Read more here.

Sia Streaming New Track 'One Million Bullets'

(Radio.com) Sia has released a new track, "One Million Bullets," off her upcoming album This Is Acting. In the song, she confesses how much she'd be willing to take for her lover. "I know that I'd take one million bullets, babe," she sings on the chorus. "Yeah, one million bullets could come my way/ I want you to know that I'd take a million, babe."

Sia's vocals almost flutter in the musically stripped down verses. The chorus jumps in both force and emotion, taking on a ballad quality even while continuing to exude a more somber tone. "How many will you take?" Sia repeatedly questions her lover after confessing how far she'd go for their love.

Fans who pre-order the album will receive three tracks, including "Alive," "Bird Set Free" and "One Million Bullets." This Is Acting drops on January 29th. Stream the song here.

Skrillex Releases Video For Remix Of GTA's Red Lips

(Radio.com) Skrillex has released a new music video for his remix of GTA's "Red Lips" featuring vocalist Sam Bruno. The video was co-written, co-produced and co-edited by Skrillex with director Grant Singer (The Weeknd "Can't Feel My Face" & "The Hills," Vic Mensa & Kanye West "U Mad").

"I've worked with a lot of great directors, but I feel Grant is someone that I am able to communicate with," Skrillex tells Pitchfork. "It's strange--some directors are really talented but they can be so precious when it comes to letting you be a part of it.

"Grant and I mesh so well on a creative level that we just came up with the concepts together, all the treatment and all the art direction that I brought to him: movies like The Cell and The Neverending Story and old science fiction films. He was just so happy to work side-by-side together, where some other people would rather do their own thing." Check it out here.

Sam Gellaitry Releases 'Escapism' EP

To celebrate the release Gellaitry has announced an EP launch party at Phonox in Brixton this Friday, December 4th. Fans can listen to the new EP online at this location. We were sent the following details about the EP:

The release of the Escapism EP also sees XL Recordings continuing to reconnect with the spirit of the label's early days. XL's early reputation was built around a series of underground, club-focused, outsider rave 12"s from the likes of The Prodigy, SL2, Awesome 3 and Jonny L. Sam Gellaitry harnesses that spirit and brings it right up to date in 2015.

Escapism incorporates Sam's bright experimental production and demonstrates his versatility and influences. The EP is representative of a journey from consciousness to unconsciousness and takes in a wide spectrum of sounds and textures, creating a chaotic but enthralling kaleidoscope of music.
