The icon's offscreen paramours included two Rolling Stones: She became involved with Stones founder Brian Jones before his death in 1969, and later romanced Richards from 1967 to 1980.

"I like a high-spirited woman. And with Anita, you knew you were taking on a valkyrie -- she who decides who dies in battle," Richards wrote in his 2010 autobiography, Life.

Lorde Reveals Writer In The Dark's Painful Inspiration

(Radio.com) Lorde's new album Melodrama is out now. In a new interview, the singer candidly discussed how her breakup from longtime boyfriend, James Lowe, influenced some of the album's darker tracks.

"Writer In The Dark," is a particularly emotional song which features the lyrics, "Stood on my chest and kept me down / Hated hearing my name on the lips of a crowd' Bet you rue the day you kissed a writer in the dark."

Lorde discussed the song, telling NME, "I think that when you do this, you have to find a way to live with yourself because it's not making no one feel anything. A handful of people will listen to this album and have it sort of get them [in the gut]."

"But it was important for me to say," she went on. "And I don't think that song is apologizing for it. It's more like, what did you think was going to happen? I was doing this before I met you and I'll be doing this after you're gone' I felt quite empowered." Read more here.

The two performed "Jolene" and "Party in the U.S.A" and it doesn't take too long for a crowd to start forming. Following Cyrus' cover of godmother Dolly Parton's "Jolene," she removed her wig, hat and glasses and Fallon introduced her to the delight of the local commuters.

Freddie Gibbs Reignites Feud With Jeezy

(Radio.com) Freddie Gibbs left Jeezy's CTE Records four years ago, but the rappers haven't mended fences. During an appearance on Viceland's Desus and Mero, Gibbs prompted the hosts to ask him about his relationship with Jeezy. Most of his answer is unpublishable:

'Ain't no beef, man," Gibbs says during the interview. 'It's gotta be beef when there's two real muthaf-z in the equation. When there's one muthaf-, it's just like pshh. P- a n-. I'll whoop yo a, n-. F with me. F Jeezy. B a n-."

Sounds like a beef to us. In 2015, Gibbs said reports of a feud were overstated. "I just felt that I wasn't getting the respect that I needed in that situation. So, I just did it on my own. That's all. It wasn't--I think that it got a little blown out of proportion. On my part and his part." Read more here.

Danny Elfman Composing 'Justice League' Score

(Radio.com) The familiar, idiosyncratic sounds of Danny Elfman will accompany the non-stop action in the upcoming Justice League movie. The film features Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, fighting crime alongside some new faces in the DC Comics cinematic universe, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The Justice League production timeline has been riddled with shakeups. Joss Whedon took over final stretch directing duties from Zack Snyder who is recovering from a family tragedy. And Elfman replaced composer Antonius Tom Holkenborg (a.k.a. Junkie XL) on the movie.

"As my mentor Hans Zimmer told me -- you haven't made it in Hollywood as a composer until you get replaced on a project. So I guess [I] finally graduated this week," Holkenborg said. Read more here.

French Montana Reveals Inspiration For 'Unforgettable' Video

(Radio.com) Moroccan-born, South Bronx-raised rapper/producer French Montana is currently riding the wave of his hugely successful new single 'Unforgettable' featuring Mississippi rapper Swae Lee.

During a stop at 92.3 AMP Radio's studio in his hometown of New York City, he detailed the impact the project has had on himself and all those involved. The visual for the track was filmed on location in Uganda after French Montana was inspired by a dance routine video posted online featuring local troupe Triplets Ghetto Kids getting down to the single.

"Definitely with the video, I felt like there's a lot of gaps happening in the world," French Montana told AMP Radio's DJ Toro, "and I'm trying to build bridges as far as going somewhere where there's real talent and showcasing it to the world on my platform."

"It just touched me in such a way when I landed and went there, and drove three hours to find out they only had two [hospital] rooms for 300,000 people and there was just one ambulance -- and they usually have 40 babies a month. So we just built 10 room floors and five floors, they're almost done. So, they're about to have 50 rooms, 200 mothers just signed in just this week alone."

"I could have done it anywhere," he continued. Read more here.

Travis Scott And Kylie Jenner Get Matching Tattoos

(Radio.com) Rapper Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner decided to get matching tattoos to show their love. In keeping with the spirit of Scott's recently released "Butterfly Effect" single -- and maybe to keep the promotional train rollin' -- the couple inked their ankles with, what else, butterflies.

Scott also started to shoot a video for "Butterfly Effect" last week. Maybe the director will agree to insert a close up of the rapper's fierce new ink? The couple debuted their body art Monday night (June 13) on Snapchat, and Scott shared a shot on Instagram of Jenner exiting a private jet; the caption reads, "BUTTERFLY EFFECT."

He also tweeted, "Legit happiest day of my life." But is he referring to his latest single, his relationship or the new tattoo? There's nothing like a new tattoo. See the post here.

Zac Brown Band Talk New Album 'Welcome Home'

(Radio.com) Zac Brown Band have returned to their roots with their latest album, Welcome Home. Released in May, their follow-up to 2015's Jekyll + Hyde has become the band's fourth consecutive No. 1 country album and fifth consecutive top ten album on the Billboard 200, debuting at No. 2.

The band announced the record earlier this year and promised a personal release. Produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), the record recalls the band's early beginnings with comparisons to the breakthrough album The Foundation.

"We decided to write the most personal record we'd ever written, about the things that matter the most to us, the struggles and the celebrations of life and our relationships with our families. That's where this began," frontman Zac Brown previously told USA Today.

This distinct direction can be heard on the album's lead single, "My Old Man," where Brown sings of hoping to bestow the lessons he's learned from his father onto his son.

"Family Table," meanwhile, showcases the moments captured together with loved ones around the dinner table. Another track, the poignant '2 Places at 1 Time," tells the tale of the often difficult task of juggling life on the road with spending quality time with one's family. Read more here.

You both did a beautiful job with what you were given. Thank you both. Happy birthday Pac, you are cradled in my heart for eternity. I love you." Check out the full post here.
