Alleged Katy Perry 'Witness' Album Clips Leaked

(Radio.com) Katy Perry's new album "Witness" is set to be released next month and official details surrounding the tracklist and collaborations are slim but two new leaks, including song snippet, reportedly fill in some of the blanks.

A Reddit user shared a 15-song list of tracks and artist credits for each track. Though many of the song titles are still masked, it's an exciting lineup of collaborators--from DJ Mustard to Sia, Purity Ring and Mike WiLL Made-It. Pop impresario Max Martin (who's had a hand in Perry's past hits) appears on many of the Witness tracks if the list is reliable.

Meanwhile, a YouTube video containing audio snippets of Witness songs surfaced (but has since been removed). We only get a brief sense of the material but the songs run the gamut from light pop fare to anthems. Read more here.

Michael Jackson Biopic Star Defends 'Searching for Neverland'

(Radio.com) Memorial Day gives us the first chance to watch a made-for-TV movie, Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland, based on the book Remembering the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, written by the late superstar's bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard.

The biopic stars a well-known Jackson impersonator, Navi, as the King of Pop, alongside Chad L. Coleman as Whitfield and Sam Adegoke as Beard. Navi told CBS News that he would have liked to have had the family's blessing, but it wasn't necessary.

"Is it important to me? Of course, because I wouldn't like to hear that someone didn't support the project. But, I didn't do this project from a business point of view. I do this project from my heart, from a Michael Jackson fan's point of view. So it doesn't matter which company and businesses and associates, whatever, do or don't support us. Fans want it told."

Coleman, 42, defended the project, stating that it depicts the musician's everyday life. "At the end of the day, Bill Whitfield had a personal experience with Javon Beard. And it is with integrity and character, so there's nothing salacious here. You know, the men had so many people turn the book down because they said Michael appeared too normal. But that's what we're going for. We're trying to show you the man." Read more here.
