Kanye West Warns Fan Attempting to Climb 'Pablo' Stage

(Radio.com) A Kanye West fan in Atlanta tried to climb the stage during "Power," prompting the rapper to wave him off during his concert on Sept 12th. The athletic audience member got the hint and jumped back into the crowd.

Fans climbing stages is nothing new, but scaling West's Saint Pablo tour set is both difficult and dangerous since the rapper is performing on a giant floating stage that dangles above the audience.

Charlie Puth's Covers The 1975's 'Somebody Else' Goes Online

(Radio.com) Charlie Puth stopped by BBC Radio 1's The Live Lounge on Thursday (September 15), where he performed his hit single "We Don't Talk Anymore" and then showed off his fandom for English alternative rockers The 1975.

The show typically has artists perform an original as well as a cover, and for the latter Puth pulled out a soft almost somber version of the band's song "Somebody Else."

The breathy, acoustic version allows Puth's wistful vocals to shine forth. He accompanies himself on keys while an acoustic guitar picks up the rhythm and fills out the melody to a degree.

Without the original version's heady synths, Matt Healy's reverbed vocals and pop production elements, "Somebody Else" takes on a softer quality. It drops some of the original's simmering melancholy and bitterness and takes on a sweeter feel. Of course, it helps that Puth naturally conveys that characteristic himself. Watch his take on "Somebody Else" here.

Tyler Farr Premieres New Single 'Our Town'

(Radio.com) Tyler Farr premiered "Our Town," the first single off his upcoming third album, on Friday (September 16). The country anthem is all about the values that make small town living so great.

On the chorus, Farr sings, "We were raised in the shadows of crosses and flags/ When we pledge allegiance we take off our hats/ Here in our town/ We say 'Yes ma'am' and 'No ma'am'/ We love, we don't hate/ That world that's gone crazy, it don't have a place/ Here in our town, here in our town." There's a nostalgic pining for the way people used to act, and how much has changed in recent years.

It all started in early 2016 when Farr had to go on vocal rest after having micro-laryngeal surgery to remove a polyp from his vocal chord. The surgery impacted his new music in big ways because it gave him time to pause. "It's been an interesting year for me with having to take time off after my micro-laryngeal surgery, but taking that time not only was a huge benefit for my voice, it was a benefit to my spirit," he said. "I had time to think, actually sit down and watch the news and see what is happening out there." Read more and check out the song here.

Nick Cannon Admits That He Sucks at Marriage

(Radio.com) Nick Cannon spent six years married to Mariah Carey, so he knows the ins and outs of making love last--and how it can all go south. A TMZ reporter caught up with him at LAX to learn more about his views on matrimony, and they weren't supportive.

Desiigner Goes On Gucci Shopping Spree Following Jail Release

(Radio.com) Desiigner was arrested earlier this month and held in jail on gun charges following a road rage incident in New York City. Last weekend, his charges were reduced and the rapper was released from jail in advance of future court dates.

To celebrate, Desiigner and pal Tyga went straight to the shops where he loaded up on Gucci apparel. It's a fitting outing given that Tyga and Desiigner collaborated on "Gucci Snakes" together under Kanye West's GOOD Music label, and proved that an altercation with a motorist was just a bump in the road.

Though no evidence of a firearm was discovered at the scene (eliminating the gun charges) Desiigner still faces charges for possession of a controlled substance and "menacing" another motorist. Tyga shared a clip of the duo in the store on Instagram, check it out here.

Drake Buys Neighbor's Home For $2.85 Million

(Radio.com) Life imitates art far more than art imitates life, Oscar Wilde once said, which may explain why Drake recently bought his neighbor's home for $2.85 million.

On Future's 2015 track "Where Ya At" Drake raps, "I'll buy the neighbor's house if they complain about the noise." Perhaps his neighbors did complain, prompting the rapper's recent purchase.

The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Hidden Hills, California is described by real estate website Trulia as "a charming ranch-style house tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac… [with] an open floor plan, hardwood floors, high ceilings… multiple fireplaces and a top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen."

Chris Stapleton Statue Made Of Bacon

(Radio.com) When country singer Chris Stapleton arrived in St. Louis to perform at LouFest earlier this month, he was greeted with a statue of himself made entirely of bacon. The statue was commissioned by Farmland, a beef, pork and catfish producer.

Fans were given the opportunity to take photos with the bacon statue and guess how many strips it took to create it. According to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it took somewhere between 200 and 2,000. Whichever fan guessed correctly would win a year's worth of free Farmland bacon.

"We've had people come up and say, 'Well, can I eat it?'," a Farmland rep named Kristin Archambeau said. "And we say, she's (food artist Nancy Baker) been working on it for two straight weeks, so I'd advise against it."

Stapleton appreciated the effort, posting a photo of himself next to the bust with the caption "I look delicious." see the photo here.
