Geri Halliwell Releasing George Michael Tribute Song

(Radio.com) Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell has announced that she will be releasing a brand new song "Angels in Chains" that she wrote in memory of George Michael.

Halliwell and Michael were more than fellow English pop icons -- they also shared a close personal friendship. The Wham! frontman was a sounding board for Halliwell when she departed the Spice Girls to embark on her own solo career.

"When I first heard the sad news of his passing, I was nine months pregnant with my son Monty and I was full of emotions," she said in a statement. "I didn't know quite what to do with my feelings so I put it in a song, which became 'Angels in Chains.'"

Halliwell recorded the song with Wham! singer Shirley Lewis and Michael's longtime guitarist, Phil Palmer. Read more here.

In an interview earlier this year, Lamar revealed he has always wanted to work with Rihanna. "I love everything about her, her artistry, how she represents women to not only be themselves but to express themselves the way she expresses herself through music and how she carries herself," Lamar explained. "I love everything about her, so I always wanted to work with her. I did the record and immediately, her name popped up. Reached out, we locked in a studio, and made it happen."

The gathering of legendary female MCs seemed aimed to send a clear message: We were here first.

Katy Perry Ranks John Mayer, Orlando Bloom, Diplo's Bedroom Skills

(Radio.com) One upside of becoming a pop star is the wide array of handsome, talented celebrities who are available for you to date. Katy Perry has enjoyed romances with John Mayer, Diplo and Orlando Bloom, giving her unique insight into the question nosey fans might ask--how are they in bed?

James Corden posed the question during a livestream event on Sunday, inviting her to rank them "from best to worst in bed. This is working on the notion that they're all good."

As a sidebar, Corden also recently asked Perry to extrapolate on her simmering feud with Taylor Swift. She's walked her comments backward and forwards several times since the interview--so maybe Katy should be wary about answering James's spiciest questions.

In any case, Perry demurred at first: "No! They're all amazing lovers and I would have sex with all of them after I get out of this [livestream]!" Finally, she caved. The definitive ranking of Katy Perry's exes in descending order of sexual prowess is: John Mayer, Orlando Bloom, and Diplo bringing up the rear. Watch it here.

The Weeknd Releases Mysterious And Futuristic 'Secrets' Video

(Radio.com) When The Weeknd released his latest record Starboy in November, "Secrets" was one of the album's most magnetic tracks. Now the singer has dropped a mysterious, futuristic video for the song.

In the clip, The Weeknd wanders around a hypermodern space like a dystopian Patrick Swayze in Ghost. He lurks around a giant modern structure, invisibly watching a woman wriggle on a piece of furniture.

He keeps an eye on the woman (a former love?) from stairwells, elevators, and balconies. The video's stunning cinematography updates the song's '80s vibe. Watch the new video here.
