Justin Bieber Calls Out Fans For Acting Like 'Animals'

(Radio.com) Justin Bieber just wrapped the Australia and New Zealand legs of his seemingly neverending Purpose World Tour, but he doesn't get a break from the spotlight just yet.

While out to lunch in Sydney, Bieber was swarmed by a crowd of Beliebers whose volume and doggedness got under his skin. As the situation escalated, Justin found himself pleading with his fans and scolding them at the same time. "The more you guys scream and act like animals, the less we can have a conversation," he was caught saying on video.

Bieber's relationship with fans has hit a boiling point over the last two years: Near the beginning of the Purpose tour, the star suspended meet-and-greets due to safety concerns. He ditched (and then rejoined) Instagram because the community became too rabid. He's briefly left stages when crowds become too unruly and while in London, a bizarre memorabilia scout collected a used milk glass to sell on eBay. Fame and fortune aside, it's not the most enviable way to live.

One Twitter user wrote: "Probably the first time I've felt sorry for Justin Bieber. The poor guy can't even go for chicken without a mob of baying fans tailing him." See some footage from the over-the-top fan mob here.

L.A. Sheriff's Department Apologize To Wyclef Jean

(Radio.com) The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department has issued a public apology to Fugees star Wyclef Jean for detaining him on Tuesday (March 21) after mistaking him for an armed robber.

"It is unfortunate that Mr. Jean was detained for six minutes during this investigation, as he had no involvement whatsoever in this violent crime," the sheriff's department said in a lengthy statement posted to Facebook. "The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is apologetic for any inconvenience this process caused Mr. Jean."

The sheriff's department further explained the situation which led to Jean being handcuffed. "Due to the violent nature of the call (armed robbery), the similarity of the suspect vehicle to Mr. Jean's vehicle, the time of day of the unfolding detention and Mr. Jean's furtive movements and demeanor, he was handcuffed," they wrote. "It is reported that Mr. Jean's furtive movements included actions such as once he exited the vehicle, he started to walk towards the trunk of the car, questioning why he could not get his things out of his trunk, even though he was clearly instructed by deputies not to approach the trunk. Mr. Jean was also ordered several times not to place his hands near his pockets or his waistband. Out of an abundance of caution, a pat down search for weapons was also conducted of Mr. Jean's person and he was subsequently secured inside the backseat of a patrol vehicle." Read more here.

Harry Styles May Release New Music Next Month

(Radio.com) One Direction fans wishing for new music from Harry Styles are in luck as it has been reported that a single could drop as early as next month. According to record industry trade magazine HITS Daily Double's Rumor Mill, Styles has been writing songs with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid and his album was recorded with Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars, the Rolling Stones).

Last year, McDaid said Styles' solo material will 'blow the socks off the world." "In marked contrast to One Direction's production by committee, Styles has crafted a set that recalls the regal high-water mark of '70s British rock, Bowie and Queen in particular," the website reports.

"The lead single, which could come out as soon as late April or early May, sounds like it would be a smash in any decade." Styles signed to Columbia Records for the release of his solo material and CEO Rob Stringer promises that the former One Direction member is here to stay. Read more here.

Judge Rejects Kesha Request In Battle Against Dr. Luke

(Radio.com) Kesha has suffered another blow in her case against Dr. Luke. This time, a judge has rejected the singer's wish to amend her claims against her former producer and songwriter, which she first requested in January.

According to the amended lawsuit, Kesha claims Dr. Luke's companies Prescription and KMI broke their contracts with her when they failed to report and pay her royalties. She also alleges that Dr. Luke broke his "good faith" agreement by verbally and physically abusing her.

New York Supreme Court Justice Shirley Kornreich ruled in a 10-page document against all of Kesha's claims. Kornreich found that Kesha, in fact, owes Dr. Luke $1.3 million in royalties.

Additionally, the judge rejected Kesha's claim that Dr. Luke didn't act in "good faith" because she recognized the abuse before they signed a contract to work together. Read more here.

Paris Jackson Recalls Her Starstruck Meeting With Alice Cooper

(Radio.com) Paris Jackson's father was the King of Pop, but the budding model-actress has eyes for the Godfather of Shock Rock. On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jackson recalled meeting Alice Cooper at a Halloween party last year.

The encounter left Paris -- whose godparents are Macaulay Culkin and the late Elizabeth Taylor -- feeling starstruck. 'I was telling him, 'I love you so much, I've always listened to you, I grew up loving you,' and I was close to tears," she recalled.

"I'm crying thinking about it -- he's just amazing. So, I like really weirded him out, but he was really nice about it." But that's not all -- she's even settled on a nickname for the "School's Out" legend. 'He's a bae, total bae."

Little Big Town Go Behind the Song 'Better Man' Ahead Of ACMs

(Radio.com) 'Behind the Song' gives fans an inside look into some of the best songs by this year's ACM Awards nominees. Here, Little Big Town, who are nominated for Vocal Group of the Year, talk about 'Better Man.'

There was a lot of pressure on Little Big Town to follow up their massive 2014 smash, "Girl Crush," and they came through last year with a little help from a famous friend. "Better Man" was given to them by none other than Taylor Swift.

Phillip Sweet tells Radio.com, 'We've known Taylor for a long time, and she actually sent [the song in] an email to me, and I passed it to the rest of the band. And she was just like, 'I've thought about you guys singing this melody' let me know what you think.' And we were in the middle of making a record, so this summer while we were out on tour, we just kept listening to it and living with it, and fell in love with it."

"She's always been a songwriter," Sweet notes, pointing out that the country singer-turned-pop star always writes or co-writes her songs. But, he says, "I don't think she's ever pitched songs to other writers, ever." Read more here.

Singled Out: Mischief Night's With Me, Now

Mischief Night are gearing up to release their new album "The Great American Worm" next month and we asked frontman Marcus Kitchen to tell us about their new single "With Me, Now". Here is the story:

The song itself was one of the first I composed for our upcoming album "The Great American Worm." Most of the album is a political meditation, but this song in particular is more about the idea of escapism through the imagination. Living in Philadelphia for 5 years while playing music had left me feeling trapped and defeated in some ways. The song came to be shortly after moving to Brooklyn to be with my soulmate Mallory. While adjusting to New York, I spent much time meditating on my actions in my hometown of Philly. Many regrets. So many things I could have and should have learned. In those moments I would harken back to that childlike imaginative escapist dream. I often like to write about age and nostalgia, memory, childhood. All those little details are in the lyrics of "With Me, Now". Another identity marker through the single and the album as a whole are the brass and woodwind arrangements. I have a humble background in classical band performance and was always drawn to the dramatic energy of that music.

The video and the song were conceived simultaneously. I had wanted to do something in the style of those old sci-fi silent films like the work of George Melies. Using my minimal knowledge of video editing, it took me upwards of 6 months to shoot and fully edit the video. I'm really happy with the result and reception by our friends. I've learned it's better to be patient and really just work hard, always.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the album right here!
