Fergie Poses Nude And Hints At New Music

(Radio.com) Fergie has stepped back into the spotlight and this time only this time she's stripped it down; literally. The artist has uploaded a nude photo of herself to social media twice with the captions "tick" and "tock." The time reference is likely an indication that new music is on the way.

The 42-year-old looks stunning and if she's promoting a new album, the much delayed Double Dutchess, it will be her first full-length in over 10 years. Her last record, her solo debut, Dutchess, was released in 2006.

In May, Fergie announced that she had left Interscope Records to form her own label, Dutchess Music. She's been teasing brief video clips since then, and also thanking fans for their patience.

While no announcement on her forthcoming project has been revealed, one thing fans can count on is Fergie keeping them intrigued with memorable videos and images. Check those out here.

Kenny Chesney Reveals 'Live In No Shoes Nation' Special Guests

(Radio.com) Country superstar Kenny Chesney has revealed the 30 songs set to appear on his upcoming live album, Live In No Shoes Nation. Featuring songs recorded in concert over the past 10 years, Chesney is eager to share those moments with his legions of fans, better known as the No Shoes Nation, hence the release's title.

"You record songs, you put 'em on a record. You know, people think it stops there. Even when it's on the radio, that's really between the listener and their life," Chesney explained. "But when you have people in your life like No Shoes Nation, I've come to believe, we figure out what these songs really mean when we get out there on the road and sing 'em together!"

"So as I was listening to some of these tapes, I decided: they're as much the people who've been coming out to the shows as anybody's! I shouldn't be the only one listening - and that sent me down a tube into all these summers out there rocking," Chesney added. "When I told the record company how many songs, they thought I'd lost my mind' And that was before we added 'Young,' which really started and defined this chapter, to the list!"

The album is a collection of Chesney's biggest hits as well as more obscure gems, and features a litany of special guests who've joined him onstage over the years, including Eric Church, Mac McAnally, David Lee Murphy, Old Dominion, Grace Potter, Taylor Swift and the Zac Brown Band.

Deadmau5 Drops $15K on 'Rick and Morty' Favorite McDonald's Szechuan Sauce

(Radio.com) A perfect storm of pop culture phenomenons have collided on eBay with EDM superstar Deadmau5 spending a whopping $15,000 for a bottle of rare McDonald's Szechuan dipping sauce, made famous on an episode of the wildly popular animated series, Rick and Morty.

According to Foodbeast, the saga began after McDonald's capitalized on the Rick and Morty attention by giving away three bottles of the treasured and discontinued elixir via a Periscope live stream that was broadcast on Twitter.

One of those three winners, WWG writer Robert Workman, put his 64 oz. bottle of Szechuan sauce on eBay for charity, with 10 percent of the proceeds originally slated for Extra Life, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals fundraising program. Workman later updated the charity angle, setting aside 25 percent of the final bid for at least five different charities.

After the highest bidder flaked on making the purchase, Workman offered the half-gallon jug of the coveted sauce to the second-place bidder, who turned out to be none other than Joel Zimmerman, better known as DJ/producer Deadmau5.

Deadmau5 took to Twitter to let Workman know that he was more than happy to pony up the $15,000 for the sauce once he was finished getting married to his girlfriend, Kelly "Grill" Fedoni. The couple tied the knot this past Saturday, August 12. It appears that the deal went through, check out the photographic evidence here.
