The story surfaced earlier in the week when Palmer took to Instagram to share her story. She goes more in depth on the topic in a new interview with Larry King.
Palmer was attending a New Year's Eve party when a video shoot began. Palmer was asked to participate and declined. "I wasn't in the right mind. I had been drinking and eating and it wasn't a professional environment," she said. "It was not a place where I was, like, I'm in the right mind to decide if this works with my brand, if I like the artist."
The singer and actress, who does not appear on the song in question, felt she was a victim of "sexual intimidation." "I feel, as a female, often I'm put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality, to taunt you," she told King. Watch a clip from the interviewhere.

At first, the visual, which also features kawaii artist Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, seems relatively straightforward. A keyboardist, a drummer and a singer perform "Crazy Crazy" in a room together, but the way the camera shoots each character from above or behind keeps their faces hidden. Once viewers begin to catch glimpses of everyone's face, things turn strange. Charli's face appears on the singer's body while Kyary's face appears on the drummer's.
Charli wrote the track, according to The Fader, but when it came to recording it, she stayed in Los Angeles with Kyary worked with Nakata in Japan. Then he stitched everything together, much like he's done with his past hits. Watch Charli be both Charli and not Charlihere.
"Most of these dudes is really quite sore/ 45 special, this is my cough/ Bout to drop an album, this is my fourth/ I don't put sugar in my spaghetti sauce," she raps on the track.

The singer-actress-producer-Instagram queen took to her favorite social media platform (where she's the most followed user) to share a trailer for her new "passion project." Judging from the teaser, Thirteen Reasons Why looks like a high school murder mystery, and all the clues are on mysteriously discovered cassette tapes.

It's a song built on self-narration and proclamations of gratitude -- perhaps a kind of State of the Union address for the big 3-6? "That's What's Up" would have been right at home on her 2016 album Here.
"You want me to give you a testimony about my life/ And how good he's been to me/ I don't know what to tell you about him/ I love him so much with all my heart and my soul/ With every bone in my body I love him so much/ Because he's done so much for me," she wails. Listen to Keys' birthday trackhere.
The album also features two pieces for banjo and string quartet, performed with Brooklyn Rider. The vinyl release is set for March 31, available exclusively from Barnes & Noble.
Named for his son Juno, "every note of the concerto is colored by the experience of being a new father, and how that has changed what is important to me as a person, as well as what I wish to express through music," says Fleck, who became a father for the first time at 55, with his wife, musician Abigail Washburn. Co-commissioned by the Canton, Colorado, South Carolina, and Louisville Symphony Orchestras, Juno Concerto was composed in 2015.
The song's seeds were first planted when Clarkson sat down with her sister and began discussing their childhood. She would go on to co-write the song with producer Greg Kurstin. But instead of a pure lament about the love she never got from her father, Clarkson shifted the song to focus on all the good her husband has brought to her life. In every way her father failed her, her husband has put her back together. "Piece by piece, he restored my faith/ That a man can be kind and a father could stay," she sings on the heart wrenching chorus.
"I wrote that song after an intense conversation with my sister," she told Radio.com. "We didn't have a very high bar - or any bar - set for what a father figure should be like. Or what a man should be like. I think a lot of girls date someone like their father. I didn't want to do that! I don't know him very well, but I know that he's awesome at abandonment. I wrote the song about how that sucked." Read morehere.
