Katy Perry Changes Her Tune In Feud With Taylor Swift

(Radio.com) Katy Perry is still talking about Taylor Swift. During an interview with the Australian Today show, a host asked Perry about the status of her feud with the 1989 hitmaker.

Perry's answers to this question have wildly varied over the last two months, but the Witness star played it diplomatic this time. "I mean, I love her, I always have," Perry said. "We've had our differences but I just continue to say, 'God bless her on her journey.'"

Overcorrecting? It seems the door to reconciliation opens and closes every few weeks. God bless Katy Perry on her journey. Watch Katy on set during her Today appearance here.

Ed Sheeran Cancels Excessively Priced Tickets On Resale Sites

(Radio.com) Ticket re-sellers can "flip" tickets for thousands of dollars above face value--a practice that gouges prices for fans and keeps profits from artists. Ed Sheeran just canceled 10,000 tickets for upcoming shows that had fallen into the hands of ticket resellers.

Some appeared on dodgy resell sites for $1,300 or more. The tickets discovered on those sites will no longer admit fans to the shows. In their place, new tickets will appear on legitimate seller channels, which fans can buy at face value. It's not clear whether those who overpaid will be able to obtain refunds for their now-cancelled tickets.

"Most ­profiteering companies heeded promoters' warnings not to trade and resell tickets that would instantly be canceled," Sheeran's management told the Mirror."This resulted in 90 percent of tickets being delivered into fans' hands at the face value." Read more here.

Madonna Takes Action To Halt Auction of Tupac Letter, Underwear

(Radio.com) Madonna has filed court documents to halt the auction of very personal memorabilia: Contents of a private letter she received from Tupac Shakur hit the media this month, and Gotta Have It! Collectibles also plans to sell a pair of "used underwear" and a used brush with strands of her hair.

The items were supplied by art consultant Darlene Luz whom Madonna describes as a "former friend" who 'would have had access to these items on numerous occasions" when she was a 'frequent overnight guest" in the Queen of Pop's house while she was out of town. The suit suggests the items were taken without permission.

"I was shocked to learn of the planned auctioning of the Shakur letter, as I had no idea that the Shakur letter was no longer in my possession," said Madonna in the documents. The letter is expected to fetch $400,000.

In the filing, Madonna expressed palpable disgust at the thought of someone selling (and buying) her used personal items. 'I understand that my DNA could be extracted from a piece of my hair. It is outrageous and grossly offensive that my DNA could be auctioned for sale to the general public," she said. Read more here.

'We don't worry with Murray," DMX rapped. 'We don't worry with Murray/He get you outta jail in a hurray/When the government trying to bury you, you good/Early!"

'With Murray on the case, we're optimistic, that's all I'm saying," he added. Watch the freestyle here.
