Gwen Stefani Sued Over Stage Rushing Incident

(Radio.com) Gwen Stefani is being sued by a concertgoer who claims she broke her tibia at one of the singer shows in 2016 after she allegedly invited fans in the lawn section to fill empty seats.

A legal document obtained by Pitchfork reads in part: "During the course of and in the midst of Stefani's musical performance, Stefani unilaterally announced via her microphone and the loud speakers throughout PNC Pavilion that all patrons in the lawn seating area should come to the reserved seating area and the front of the performance stage, including announcing 'Just fill in anywhere you like! Who cares about your lawn chairs? You can get new ones!"

"This announcement created a stampede rush of patrons from the lawn seating area through the reserved seating area and toward the front of the performance stage, with people knocking over and breaching the security barricades and other security matter, jumping over seats in the reserved seating area, and pouring in through the aisles separating the various sections of the reserved seating area".

Ed Sheeran Addresses Backlash Over Adele Comments

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran set the record straight on his somewhat controversial (to Adele fans) comments regarding his ambition to one day sell more records than fellow Brit singer Adele during his appearance on NBC's Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.

Back in February, in an interview with GQ magazine, Ed was explaining how he wakes up to check sales figures and wonders what he needs to do to bring them up to the level he aspires them to be.

When asked whether or not he felt any sort of competition with another artist, only one came to mind. "Adele is the one person who's sold more records than me in the past ten years. She's the only person I need to sell more records than. That's a big f---- feat because her last album sold 20 million. But if I don't set her as the benchmark then I'm selling myself short."

In the interview with Kelly, Ed explains that he faced a little backlash over those statements. "I feel like me saying this, a lot of people were like, 'That's such an arrogant thing to say,'" Sheeran told Megyn Kelly. "I think you need to choose someone that's at the top of their game. Like, I probably won't sell 20 million records. And I probably won't ever be as big as Adele. But if you don't aim for the top of the mountain, how are you ever gonna get halfway?"

Sheeran went on to explain that the short bite was taken out of context and spread like wildfire. Read more here.

"Our live show is very loud and fun and we're shotgunning beers with fans, and stage diving, but on the bus, I like listening to sad, more lonesome, dirtier stuff. Whether lyrically or musically, it reaches in there and grabs your soul. That's the stuff I gravitate toward. I ended up making a record that I think goes down that road of intrigue and mystery."
