At first, the "Bon Appetit" singer lightly evaded the question, remarking, "Well that's not my question to answer -- if it's about me. I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that's calling out any one person."

Later, Perry clarified, expressing her view that people should not mistake her "kindness for weakness" and the album is not directed at any one person. "Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story," Perry explained. "But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don't forget about that, okay, honey This record is not about anyone else!" Read more here.

Liam Gallagher's Son Shows Love For Blur Despite Rivalry

(Radio.com) The Battle of Britpop will live forever in the hearts and minds of Blur and Oasis fans. In 1995, the bands duked it out for chart dominance and antagonism didn't subside after Blur topped the charts with "Country House."

Now and then, shades of animosity crop up in Liam Gallagher's Twitter feed, and elsewhere. Sometimes the bands have been able to find common ground. This year, Noel Gallagher collaborated with former Blur frontman Damon Albarn on Gorillaz latest album, Humanz. Liam blasted Albarn for turning Noel "into a massive girl."

"Now that d out of Blur and the creepy one out of Oasis need to hang their heads in shame as it's no 'Dancing In The Streets' - as you were," he tweeted. 'That gobse out of Blur might have turned Noel Gallagher into a massive girl but believe you me, next time I see him there's gonna be war."

It seems that Liam's own son has defected from the cause. A newly surfaced magazine photo shows the second-generation Oasis star repping Blur on his t-shirt. If you're a teen in search of a rebellious phase (and your dad is Liam Gallagher) that's about as savage as it gets. Read more here.

Singled Out: Eddy Mann's All I Need Is You

Philly folk artist Eddy Mann today tells us the story behind his latest single "All I Need Is You" which is a track from his album "The Consequence." Here is the story:

All I Need Is You was written right on the heels of the Dig Love album. Recording had just been completed and during that moment where you take a deep breath and relax, it happened in a heartbeat.

I was taking stock of my life at the time and realizing just how much stuff I had gathered over the past few years. So much so that I didn't even remember some of what I had acquired.

I started to embrace just how unimportant a lot of these things were and began to look a bit deeper into my own heart. I was searching for what really mattered to me. What was it that I really needed each day? What was it that I couldn't live without?

At that moment the lyric took shape and it was one of those songs that sung to me right away. The opening guitar hook was conceived the next day as I was attempting to track a demo version.

I played it live for a year before recording it on The Consequence album, so the song grew and matured quite a bit through those performances. On the album the end of the song has this alternative guitar figure that drives the fade out, but live there's a breakdown section that's completely unscripted. It takes the audience to a whole new place. It's currently one of my favorite songs to play each night.

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