Katy Perry Addresses Orlando Bloom Nude Photos

(Radio.com) Last August, revealing images of Orlando Bloom operating a stand-up paddleboard naked (with then-girlfriend Katy Perry) hit tabloids and ignited Twitter. The nude photos made waves 10 months ago, but Perry recently and willingly addressed the incident.

First off, The Witness declined to join the public nudity. '[Orlando] asked me if I wanted to be [naked] and I was like, 'ah no''" she told an Australian radio interviewer. 'You know when you're dating someone sometimes, it's exciting to be like, 'Oh, should we try and make out over here in this place' or what have you, and I was just not in the mood. I saved it for the boat."

Bloom, however, took a more exhibitionist approach. 'He wanted to show off for the people on the shore," Perry recalls. 'He thought it was funny!" Perry added that Bloom was in the dark about the splash the revealing photos made online. 'Oh oh, it was so funny because I was explaining Twitter and social media to him for weeks because he had taken a break and then all of a sudden he was, like, trending number one on Twitter."

Ed Sheeran Denies Backing Track Accusations

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran played the biggest nighttime show of his career last Sunday (June 25) when he headlined the Glastonbury festival in the UK. But the singer took some heat following his festival when members of the audience accused him of using a backing track during his performance.

In actuality, Sheeran was using a loop pedal, which allowed one guitar segment to repeat while he played another one and it's a process he has used for a long time, but apparently, not everyone knows that.

"Think it would have given a better atmosphere if Ed Sheeran had employed a band instead of a backing track?" one festivalgoer wrote on Twitter. Hours later, Sheeran clarified the situation on social media. "Never thought I'd have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it's a loop station, not a backing track," he wrote, before adding that he had a great night. Read more here.

Notorious B.I.G.'s Mom Slams Jenner Sisters Over Vintage Shirt

(Radio.com) The Notorious B.I.G.'s mother Voletta Wallace is not happy about Kendall and Kylie Jenner recently putting their faces over the image of her late son to sell their expensive vintage t-shirts.

Wallace took to social media to post a photo of the t-shirt with a large red X over the image. The photo also included the phrases, "This product has no affiliation to the Notorious B.I.G. Estate" and "The Estate was never contacted about using the likeness of Biggie."

As a caption, Wallace wrote, "I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this. The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!"
