Demi Lovato Taking A Break Following Taylor Swift Jab Backlash

(Radio.com) Demi Lovato's comments about Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" music video have brought out the trolls, and as a result it seems as though Lovato is ready for a break.

"So excited for 2017. Taking a break from music and the spotlight.. I am not meant for this business and the media," she tweeted on Tuesday (October 4) along with an emoji waving goodbye.

Prince's Paisley Park Museum Hits Political Road Block

(Radio.com) Chanhassen, Minnesota faces a tough decision: Does it want to become a Prince "tourist town?" The city is home to the famed Paisley Park estate where Prince lived and recorded most of his music, and plans to turn the site into a museum have conflicted the city council.

Councillors deliberated for three hours last night to weigh the pros and cons of inviting an estimated 600,000 tourists into their community each year. Paisley Park is scheduled to open as a museum on Thursday (October 6).

Because no rezoning decision was reached on Monday night (Oct 3rd), The Star Tribune doubts that the opening will happen this week, after all. Read more here.

Luke Bryan Cancels Tour Kick Off Due To Hurricane Matthew

(Radio.com) Luke Bryan was all set to begin his Farm Tour 2016 tonight, October 5th, but he's had to cancel the very first show of that tour thanks to Hurricane Matthew.

The category 4 hurricane has already made landfall in Haiti and forecasters project it will skirt up the coast of Florida all the way to New York, affecting weather in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina along the way.

South Carolina has already started evacuation orders, which necessitated Bryan canceling the first show. Bryan next heads to Greenville, Tennessee, on October 6th. Read the statement about the cancelation here.

Rare Daft Punk Unmasked Footage Surfaces

(Radio.com) French electronic music duo Daft Punk aka Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter--like Sia--prefer performing with their faces obscured from view. But now rare footage from an early set when they first broke on the scene has surfaced showing them without anything covering their face.

Someone in the crowd captured about five grainy minutes of Daft Punk on stage at the France's Carros Festival in 1995. In the footage, which initially surfaced on Reddit, neither member wears their typical masks or helmets. They play their single "Da Punk," which later appeared on their debut album Homework.

The footage has reignited rumors that the duo will tour, but insiders insist they have no plans to do so. Daft Punk hasn't officially toured since 2007, although they did make an appearance at the 2014 GRAMMYs where they performed their single "Get Lucky" with Pharrell and Stevie Wonder. Watch the footage here.

Jerry Heller's Death May Derail 'Straight Outta Compton' Lawsuit

(Radio.com) Former NWA manager Jerry Heller was so displeased with his portrayal in Straight Outta Compton that he brought a defamation suit against the film's producers, including Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.

That lawsuit was moving along until Heller's sudden death in September, throwing the fate of future litigation into question. Heller's defamation claim charges that the movie depicts him encouraging a young, naive artist not to hire an attorney to advise with negotiation.

Heller, 75, died last month when he suffered a heart attack behind the wheel of his car, causing a crash. Without a living plaintiff, his estate will need to name a successor-in-interest to pursue the legal case. Heller's attorney Michael Shapiro requested a stay through October 20 to line up such a successor and move the complaint ahead. Read more here.

'Family Guy' Spoofs Solange and Jay Z's Infamous Elevator Fight

(Radio.com) Solange is back with her first new album in eight years: A Seat at the Table has met widespread critical acclaim and reminded the world what makes her the soulful, psychedelic, high-art counterpart to sister Beyonce's big-tent RnB.

But it's impossible to overlook one enormous, internet-breaking incident from the last two years, perhaps Solange's greatest hit since "Sandcastle Disco": her fight with brother-in-law Jay Z in an elevator, following the 2014 Met Gala.

Family Guy has not forgotten the footage. In a brief clip from the show, titular family guy Pete Griffin stands in the elevator to witness the dust-up, interjecting various zingers and observations: "That's gonna leave a mark!"

Below, watch Seth MacFarlane's comic send-up of the elevator ride that will live in infamy here.

Shawn Mendes Pays Homage To John Mayer In New Video

(Radio.com) It's no secret that Shawn Mendes is a huge John Mayer fan, and he proved it by channeling the musician while recording himself playing around on his guitar.

Mendes posted a black and white video on Instagram Tuesday (October 4), writing, "Trying to dig deep into guitar world with my off time, dont mind my ridiculous movements and weird faces hahaha. Love this JM type groove!!"

The song he plays has a very relaxed vibe with the kind of beachy finger work that Mayer tended to prefer in his earlier music. Mendes has expressed an interest in collaborating with Mayer on something, but unfortunately they weren't able to work together this time around.

He told Rolling Stone, "I didn't get to work with him, but he listened to a bunch of the songs and gave great pieces of advice through the music and production and lyrics and stuff, especially on songs like 'Three Empty Words' and 'Ruin' and 'Patience.' It was great to have him listening through it all." Watch the video here.

David Bowie Collaborator Looks Back At Legend's Final Days

(Radio.com) David Bowie's final album Blackstar pushed boundaries for the late singer, who decided he wanted to incorporate experimental and modern jazz elements into his music.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Bowie collaborator and saxophonist Donny McCaslin discusses what it was like working with the music icon in his final days.

'There's so much emotion," McCaslin says of Bowie's death. 'It's devastating. We had this amazing connection and then he was gone." In an interview at 55 Bar, a Greenwich Village jazz club where Bowie first heard McCaslin and his band in 2014, the jazz performer discusses working on Blackstar and recalls the day Bowie watched him perform for the first time.

"I was definitely nervous," the saxophonist says. 'I glanced up and saw where he was sitting. I just tried to keep myself grounded and not think about it. But the pressure was on . . . It wasn't a watered-down version of what we do. Afterwards Bowie said: 'Wow, that was really loud!'"Read more here.

Flavor Flav Makes Wild TV Appearance

(Radio.com) Flavor Flav made an appearance on The Eric Andre Show recently where he dropped news about his "top-notch" solo album before things spun totally out of control.

Dressed completely in white -- hat, three-piece suit, larger-than-life clock necklace -- Flavor Flav exuded confidence, but there were a few things that set him off during the comedic interview, and it's unclear whether or not Flav was in on the joke. When co-host Hannibal Buress paused the show for a selfie, a crew guy grabbed Flav's crotch and things quickly went downhill.

"Don't do that. You grab my d, I will punch you in the fin' face and we will be fighting right here on this mother fin' stage," warned Flav.

Andre tried to grab the rapper and Flavor jumped up, ready to fight. Without warning, Andre stripped down, and jumped into a bathtub underneath his desk while Buress kicked Flav in the face. It was totally weird, even by Flav's standards. Watch it all here.
