Justin Bieber Further Explains Why He Canceled Shows

(Radio.com) It has been a long road for Justin Bieber and so far the summer has been somewhat rocky. Last month he canceled the remaining dates of his Purpose World tour due to "unforeseen circumstances."

Soon after, he was banned from playing China because his "bad behavior" could have a negative impact on his fans. Then, he accidentally hit a paparazzo with his vehicle, while leaving a church event in LA.

But it seems like Bieber has finally found the light at the end of the tunnel. After posting a picture of his new face tattoo, Bieber took to Instagram to explain in detail why he's decided to take some time off and what he's doing to improve his mental health.

"I have let my insecurities get the best of me at times," he wrote. "I let my broken relationships dictate the way I acted towards people and the way I treated them. I let bitterness jealousy and fear run my life."

He added that since those dark times he has found friends and mentors that have helped him to change how he thinks about who he is and who he has been.

"I am extremely blessed to have people in the past few years help me build my character back up, reminding me of who I am and who I want to be!!!. Reminding me my past decisions and past relationships don't dictate my future decisions and my future relationships. I'm very aware I'm never going to be perfect and I'm gonna keep making mistakes. But what I'm not gonna do is be ashamed of my mistakes." Read Bieber's full statement here.

Lorde Releases 'Perfect Places' Music Video

(Radio.com) Lorde goes on a crazy vacation in her new music video for her Melodrama track "Perfect Places." The New Zealand native debuted the Grant Singer-directed video Thursday (August 3).

In the visual, Lorde dances on a beach, a rocky shore, a jungle pool, a forest and more. Before her sophomore album's release, she annotated the lyrics for the track on Genius, saying that one hot summer in New York City influenced her writing for the song.

According to her post, she wrote, "i'd ride across the brooklyn bridge every day, or sit on the subway uptown in the heat, then go back home to new zealand winter for a week at a time to party with my friends. my life was like a weird little etch-a-sketch i kept scribbling on and resetting. and all last summer, i couldn't shake the feeling that everyone i knew or saw was searching for something - trying to transcend the news and the screaming pavements, drinking that one drink hoping it'd get them someplace higher. this song comes from that endless cycle of evenings and the violent heat of the summer. it took us a very long time to get right, from an aching piano demo to where is it now. it's close to my heart. i hope you like it."

Camila Cabello Releases Two New Tracks 'Havana' and 'OMG'

(Radio.com) Camila Cabello released two new tracks on Thursday (August 3rd). The first song is called "Havana," featuring Young Thug and the other is "OMG" with Migos' Quavo.

Appropriately titled, "Havana" evokes a Latin vibe in which the former Fifth Harmony member muses about a former flame she left back in her native country of Cuba. "Half of my heart is in Havana/ He took me back to East Atlanta/ All of my heart is in Havana," she sings.

"OMG" is more lively. Cabello works with a hip-hop beat complimented by Quavo's autotune-heavy arrangements. "Pull up, pull up, pull up straight from Tokyo/ You cannot believe it when we come through/ Woo, my God, you look good today," Cabello semi-raps. Stream both songs here.
