Randy Travis Addresses Release of DWI Arrest Video

(Radio.com) Despite efforts from Randy Travis' wife last week to have the footage kept private, a federal district judge in Dallas on Friday (Dec 1) ruled in favor of the release of the dash cam video from his 2012 DWI arrest.

Travis on Tuesday (Dec. 5) issued a formal statement in response to this decision. "Randy's behavior was extremely altered the evening of his arrest due to the state of his mental health, and substances in his body, causing him to do and say things that were entirely out of character," reads the statement. "He suffered a severe concussion and sustained numerous other injuries from the crash."

Despite the apology, Travis is still seeking comeuppance against those he claims mistreated him after the arrest, reports TheBoot.com. "Notwithstanding the release of the tape, Randy and his team will have their day in court regarding the ongoing lawsuit against the State of Texas in relation to the violation of his civil rights," the statement continued.

Taylor Swift Featured With 'Silence Breakers' For TIME's Person of the Year

(Radio.com) TIME magazine's Person of the Year 2017 are the "Silence Breakers," women and men who have spoken out about sexual misconduct. One of the women featured on this year's cover is Taylor Swift, who triumphed in a legal battle against a former DJ she accused of groping her.

The cover also features actress Ashley Judd (an early Harvey Weinstein accuser) Susan Fowler (who exposed wrongdoing by Uber's CEO), Adama Iwu (who spearheaded a campaign to raised awareness of sexual harassment in California state government) and Isabel Pascual (a farm worker, who shared her story of fear and intimidation).

In her first interview since the trial, Swift discussed her decision to report the incident. "At the time, I was headlining a major arena tour and there were a number of people in the room that saw this plus a photo of it happening," she says. "I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance. It was important to report the incident to his radio station because I felt like they needed to know. The radio station conducted its own investigation and fired him. Two years later, he sued me."

Swift was asked what advice she would give to her fans following the totality of the experience. "My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you," she said. "You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you."

Selena Gomez Abruptly Makes Her Instagram Account Private

(Radio.com) Selena Gomez, the star attraction of the world's most popular Instagram page, has abruptly set her account to private. The account was switched over to private on Monday (Dec. 4) after the pop star posted a message regarding her recent Billboard cover story for the publication's "Woman of the Year" issue.

"Never will I let another human guess my words ever again. Or invite them in my home. That is so hurtful. The most 'ridiculous' part of that is no one knowing my heart when I say things," Gomez posted in her Instagram stories with an image of the seemingly offending passage regarding a giant teddy bear.

"There's a five-foot teddy bear sprawled across the kitchen floor in Selena Gomez's North Hollywood home," reads the relatively innocuous passage. "'I know, I know,' says Gomez, rolling her eyes, acknowledging that the stuffed animal doesn't quite blend with the trio of armchairs nestled in the inviting, marble-accented nook. 'It was a gift, and at first 'I thought, This is so ridiculous, I can't wait until I give it away to another person.' But Gomez, 25, hasn't let go of it -- yet."

Gomez was asked about being the most followed person on the social media platform during a new interview with Britain's KISS-FM posted Tuesday (Dec. 5). Read about that here.
