Dave Grohl Laments Tween Photo Of His Scott Baio Haircut

(Radio.com) As Dave Grohl continues to help promote his mother's new book, From Cradle to Stage, the Foo Fighters frontman has released a funny new video clip where he calls his mother to complain about some fairly embarrassing photos found within its pages.

While reading the book Grohl discovers several photos including one where, as a child, he's seen wearing a cowboy hat and pants that appear to be pooched out by a rather full diaper.

Another photo that Grohl wishes hadn't made the book shows the rocker as a pre-teen. "When I see the photo of me with a Scott Baio haircut," says Grohl, "that's not conducive to my rock and roll rebel image." Read more here.

Madonna Not Happy About Biopic Plans

(Radio.com) Universal Studios recently picked up the rights to Elyse Hollander's "Blonde Ambition" screenplay and is developing a Madonna biopic by the same name.

The film will center around the iconic superstar's early life in 1980s New York and the events surrounding her debut album and apparently, Madonna isn't happy about it.

Taking to social media to publicly express her disapproval, she wrote, "Nobody knows what I know and what I have seen. Only I can tell my story. Anyone else who tries is a charlatan and a fool. Looking for instant gratification without doing the work. This is a disease in our society." Check out the post here.

Kendrick Lamar's 'Humble' Beat Was Intended for Gucci Mane

(Radio.com) In a recent interview with NPR, producer Mike WiLL Made-It revealed some surprising news about Kendrick Lamar's lead track, "HUMBLE." from the rapper's latest album, DAMN.

Produced by Mike, the producer explained he had originally created the beat in "HUMBLE" for Gucci Mane."I made that beat [last year] when Gucci Mane was getting out of jail. I made it with him in mind," Mike revealed.

"I was just thinking, damn, Gucci's about to come home; it's got to be something urgent that's just going to take over the radio. And I felt like that beat was that. I ended up not doing it with Gucci and I let Kendrick hear it." Read more here.

Miley Cyrus Appears In 'Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2'

(Radio.com) The Guardians of the Galaxy gang is back for Volume 2, this time with even more familiar faces and voices among the cast. At the film's London premiere, director James Gunn announced that Miley Cyrus has "half a second" in the movie as a new character. The blink-and-you-miss-it appearance sounds pivotal, nevertheless.

"Well, I can't really tell you guys because it's a spoiler in itself to talk about it," he said. "But, near the very end of the movie, there's a new character introduced for just a moment who speaks for half a second with Sylvester Stallone."

Gunn said he simply called Miley up to ask if she'd be willing to lend her vocal talent to the movie -- and she said yes. In future installments, the "Wrecking Ball" singer could factor even more prominently into the plot. Read more here.

Harry Styles Interviewed by Chris Martin, Ed Sheeran, Ronnie Wood

(Radio.com) Harry Styles has been heavily promoting his new single "Sign of the Times" and in a recent radio interview, he received questions from some unlikely subjects including Ed Sheeran, Coldplay's Chris Martin, the Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood, Rita Ora and Styles' mother, Anne Twist.

BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw surprised Styles with pre-taped interview questions from Styles' famous friends and mother. While Martin's verged on the comical as he asked if he could be the president of Styles' fan club, his mother's was more serious.

Sheeran also asked Styles more thought out questions. "What was the process of this album? How many songs did you write, where did you make it and how long have you been making it for and did you enjoy making it?"

Styles said he worked on the album for three weeks early last year before stopping for five months to film the Christopher Nolan-directed movie Dunkirk. When he finished filming in July he continued to work on the record until the end of the year and wrote 30 songs for the project.

His mother then asked what his favorite part of creating the album was, aside from performing and recording it. His response was the writing. He said he and his collaborators worked hard to create something they would want to listen to as music fans.

"If you put out something that you don't stand behind and really love if it doesn't go well then you can regret not doing something that you really wanted to do," he said. "Whereas if nothing happens with it, I love it . . . we're all fans of music so we made it as the fan. What do I want to listen to and tried to write that. I really like the album so I hope people like it." Watch the collaborative interview here.

Bananarama Reuniting For Their Very First Tour

(Radio.com) Nearly 30 cruel summers have passed since Bananarama disbanded in 1988, but the original lineup has announced that they will be launching their very first tour this Fall in the UK.

Believe it or not, it's the band's first tour ever--despite their 80s hits like "Venus" and "I Heard a Rumour," the girl group never embarked on a formal tour. Since then, the women have affectionately reflected on their past lives as pop icons. What's it like to be an ex-member of Bananarama? It's cool as hell.

'Wherever I go, I'm Siobhan from Bananarama. People wet their knickers when they find that out," Siobhan Fahey told The Guardian. She recalled meeting Rick Ross: 'I forgot to tell you! He literally bowed. He said, 'Oh my God, you guys were so cool. I really want to do a dancehall remix of 'Cruel Summer.""

In addition to their November-December tour, Bananarama will hit the studio together. Though they can't promise an album, Sara Dallin says a single is in the works. Read more here.

Radiohead Inspire Name Of New Ant Species

(Radio.com) Surely, any musician would feel honored to have a new species of organic life named after them. But if you're an original, experimental band that has weathered the storms of britpop, alt-rock and even electronica, you might hope the creature to take on your mighty moniker would be larger than… an ant.

For Radiohead, that's just not the case. A new type of ant discovered in the Venezuelan Amazon has been named Sericomyrmex radioheadi, reports Phys.org.

As it turns out, the scientists are serious fans of Radiohead, which they credit for more than their ability to raid picnic tables and lift objects many times their own weight. Read more here.

Zayn Malik Gushes Online For Gigi Hadid's Birthday

(Radio.com) As lovebirds, pop star Zayn Malik and supermodel Gigi Hadid have been going strong since November 2015--their union predates his solo career and her legal right to order an adult beverage.

To ring in his love's 22nd birthday, Zayn went all out with a fancy cake and a gushy social media message: "happy birthday to my everything." The pair posed for a duo of his-and-hers Instagram photos.
