Adele broke the news to fans on social media, explaining that she is sick and will have to reschedule. She promised to come back and make up for it, saying, "I'll smash it."
In a video that depicted her without makeup and looking haggard, she said she had been "trying to sing all morning" but added, "Nothing's really happening."
'Hello, everyone, specifically everyone in Phoenix and Arizona," she began in the clip. "I can't do my show tonight, my second show here. I'm really, really sorry. I've had a cold for a couple days, and I've been pushing through it and I did my show last night and I loved it, but I pushed too hard. And my cold has gotten the better of me."
"I'm so sorry to let you down," she continued. I know lots of people would be flying in, from all over. It's the last thing I want to do, but I have to look after myself because I've got so many more shows to do. I'm really, really sorry, have a wonderful evening without me." Watch the video here.
The sexy number is classic Britney. It's got a pulsing beat, flirty, breathy vocals and provocative lyrics: "Nobody should be alone if they don't have to be," she sings. "I could get into that kissin' and touchin'/ or we could be good and do next to nothin'."
The new song follows the release of three other tracks 'Make Me," 'Private Show," and 'Clumsy." Glory is scheduled for release August 26. Two days later, Spears will be back on the VMA stage for the first time in ten years to perform 'Make Me" with G-Eazy. Check out the new song here.
"My parents bought me this Dallas Cowboy uniform," she said "I had this vision that I would go to a Dallas Cowboys game fully clad and they would be scouring the stands going 'who can we get to win this football game?' and I'd be like 'me,' and I would get to play with the Dallas Cowboys."
As for her rendition of the National Anthem, Clark says she wanted something "bendy and a little bit manic or off-kilter just to represent the idea of what it is to be an American and how we're going to be the best version of ourselves in the future in the turbulent times in which we live." Check out the video here.
Eldredge will release a Christmas album this fall, which features standard holiday songs as well as an original tune, "Glow."

He recorded everything at Avatar Studios in New York, and tried to set a particular mood while he worked on the project since it was so far ahead of the Christmas season. Read more here.
A fan captured Bryan singing an acoustic version of a new tune, ostensibly called "Southern Gentlemen," at a recent show. The song praises the kind of love Bryan can offer his lady because he was reared in the south. The video picks up immediately with the opening lyrics.
"You looked at me like I was crazy / When I said 'ma'am' to that little old lady / You ain't heard talk like that lately / But I could see it's got you smiling / You say you still remember our first date me cooking you dinner / And how I didn't even try to kiss you at the end of the date," Bryan sings, accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar. The hook ends with a catchy nod to the title, "Ain't nobody gonna love you better than/ This southern gentleman."
It's not clear whether this will appear on Bryan's new EP, as he hasn't released the tracklist yet, but it seems like fitting subject matter for a tour paying tribute to all things agricultural. Bryan's new EP Farm Tour: Here's to the Farmer will be released September 23, and just a week or so later he'll launch his Farm Tour on October 5 in Gaston, SC. Watch "Southern Gentleman" here.
Meek posted a video to Instagram Thursday (August 18) sharing a snippet of a song he's working on. While driving around with his friend, Meek filmed himself listening the track. The smile on his face says it all as he points his finger at the camera to punctuate the beat. 'I got the key to the streets, I got the key to the safe / He wanna see what I'm selling, I put a key in his face," he can be heard rapping.
As the song builds in intensity, Meek begins waving the phone around. His body seems physically incapable of remaining still while the bass blazes so fiercely.
It's unclear whether this track will appear on his upcoming Dreamchasers 4 or whether it's for another project, but either way Meek is back and ready to share some big tunes. Watch Meek's tease here.
Spears shared a video of herself and her niece dancing to Madonna's song "Vogue." Spears twirls while her niece starts grabbing workout gear. As the little girl flings her body over a stretching roller, Spears mimics her from high above. She eventually finds her own stretching roller and the two sword fight. "Pre-show warm up! Wishing a happy belated birthday to @madonna!!" she wrote.
Madonna turned 58 on August 16th. As for her own music, Spears is gearing up to drop her first album since 2013's Britney Jean. Her new album Glory drops August 26th. Watch her cute moment with her niece here.
Gaga loves a surprise and she sure dropped one earlier this week (August 17). Using 12 brightly colored posts to create a single message, she shared on Instagram that her new single "Perfect Illusion" will arrive this September. She also tweeted the information. Beyond sharing the announcement itself, Gaga didn't say much else about the single.
In May, producer Ronson posted a photo of Gaga and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker in the studio together. He captioned the image "Illusion," which, given Gaga's latest announcement, now makes a lot more sense. Read more here.
Arasheben says that in August 2012, Tyga (born Michael Ray Stevenson) agreed to pay $28,275 for the a diamond pantheon watch, but never did, and that four months later the rapper borrowed a $63,000 diamond Cuban link chain that was never returned.
The jeweler originally filed suit in 2013 to try to collect $185,306.50 in costs and late fees. The total rose again in January 2014, when a judge entered a default judgment against Tyga, ordering him to pay $208,334.47. At the time, Tyga's rep said the situation was "all a misunderstanding," reports People. The judgment has still not been paid and with the added costs the current total is "in excess of $270,000" in damages, interest and attorney fees.
So Arasheben has hired Danny Abir and Boris Treyzon from Abir, Cohen, Treyzon and Salo, the same lawyers that just settled case between Tyga and his former landlord Gholamreza Rezai. Read more here.
