"It's hard to process what happened the other night…still feel like I'm in a daze," she wrote. "When the gunfire started, I was not with Jason, but with some friends in a tent closer to Mandalay Bay. As you can imagine my first instinct was to run to him and his was the same. As we laid behind equipment onstage with some of our road family, bullets flying past… all I could think was 'I never even got to hold my baby,' she continued. Brittany is currently pregnant with the couple's first child.
Mrs. Aldean goes on to recount the hours of fear and uncertainty after running for cover. "We were the lucky ones," she said. "I can't put into words the pain and heartache we feel for the ones who are no longer with us. May God be with their families and friends during this horrendous time. Each and every one of you are and will forever be in our prayers." See her full posthere.
Lauren Jauregui shared a video from the incident, in which Becky can be seen running onstage with some kind of scarf. She's quickly intercepted by a member of the security team who assumed she was a crazed fan. Better safe than sorry!
As a refresher, Becky G is a singer and actress whose hit "Shower" entered the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2014. She subsequently appeared as the Yellow Ranger in the Power Rangers reboot and has collaborated with Lil Jon, will.i.am and Jessie J. Her debut studio album is expected to drop this year, so get ready to know her name.
Becky and Fifth Harmony had a sense of humor about the mix-up on Twitter: "Now you know I'm your number one fan," Becky wrote. She added that the swift ejection hurt her arm but that the security pros were just doing their job. Watch the mistaken-identity farce (and Twitter aftermath)here.
Smith shared a video that evolves from a white screen to showing the song's title and release date. Sam Smith is set to perform at this year's We Can Survive concert, set for Oct. 21 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Fey, who plays Diana St. Tropez, is at her desk when she sees a headline "SHOTS FIRED! Portia Scott Griffith DECLARES SQUAD FEUD WITH MMN BOARDROOM BI**H."
Richie enters in a black leather suit that looks like the one T-Swift wore in her video. "Portia" and her squad strut around, as she sings, 'You better wash dish, bish, I've had enough of your ish, bish / I'm a famous and rich bish / So you better watch dish, bish." Read morehere.
For her upcoming tour, dubbed "The North American Dance," Lorde will be joined by hip-hop duo Run the Jewels, and progressive pop acts Mitski and Tove Stryke.
There are additional opening acts for select dates on the tour that will be revealed at a later date. See the dates for Lorde's full North American runhere.
"I have nothing to hide," she said. "The beautiful, the good, the bad, the ugly, all of it." Specifically, Kesha delved into the faulty thinking around her eating disorder.
"I really just thought I wasn't supposed to eat food," she said. "And then if I ever did, I felt very ashamed, and I would make myself throw up because I'd think, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe I actually did that horrible thing. I'm so ashamed of myself because I don't deserve to eat food."
As Kesha lost weight, she earned positive feedback from people in the industry who expected her to be a certain size. "I was slowly, slowly starving myself," she said. "And the worse I got and the sicker I got, the better a lot of people around me were saying that I looked. They would just be like, 'Oh, my gosh, keep doing whatever you're doing! You look so beautiful, so stunning.'" Read morehere.
"I've spent the last few days with a heavy heavy heart. And I know there are more days like that to come," she shared on Instagram in the hours before a show in Edmonton, Canada yesterday (Oct. 3). "But in keeping with the mindset that music is medicine, we are gonna go on stage tonight in Edmonton, AB and celebrate family, friends and community with some country music. And remember all the light and joy it can bring. It's a healer."
During the Edmonton show, Lambert brought a young fan onstage for a hug after seeing his sign requesting one in the crowd. "We all need a damn hug today, don't we?" she said to the cheering crowd.
The singer addressed the shooting before a performance of the song "Mr. Tin Man," asking the crowd to hold up a light "for our friends in Vegas tonight." Watch the momenthere.

Bryan reacted to the news with muted enthusiasm, simply writing "I made it." Check out the posthere.
"It was one of the most heartbreaking days of life," Bryan said. After the incident, Luke spoke with his good friend Jason Aldean, who was on stage when the shooting began. He shared what that difficult conversation was like:
"Hearing one of your best friends shaken up like that, knowing they'll never be able to un-see these things, you get lumps, and you get nauseated," Bryan said.
"It's horrible," added Perry. "I think that everyone feels like their heart has just been ripped out of their chest, and we just don't know when it's gonna happen again. And I think we're all trying to figure out the answers." Read morehere.
"The families and victims affected by the horrific Route 91 Harvest tragedy need our help," the band posted on Instagram. "The Clark County, NV commission has established a GoFundMe account to provide financial relief to the victims and we are grateful to be able to make a donation. Calling on the rest of you to donate what you can, any amount, it doesn't matter. Every little bit helps. Let's give the hurt families one less thing to worry about in this time of distress."
The band went to summon fellow artists to also make donations, calling some out by name."We challenge Thomas Rhett, Tim McGraw, Luke Bryan, Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo (and) Backstreet Boys to make a donation as well," they wrote. "Times like this call for us to come together and do what we can to make a difference. Click the link in our bio and donate what you can. Let's ease the financial burden on the families and victims of this senseless tragedy. Much love y'all." Read morehere.
The rapper/actor has shared a new song, "Vices," where he drops rhymes about a variety of them, including alcohol and marijuana. There's no indication if this new track is in advance of a new album.
But for Ludacris fans hungry for music from the rapper, "Vices" should fill the gap until his next musical move. Listen to the new track, which contains explicit lyrics,here.
The Detroit rapper posted a pair of messages on Instagram reflecting on the horrific incident, sharing that he has family members in the Vegas area. Having recently played a music fest in Vegas with another show there later this week, the incident hits him close to home.
"I don't know what I would've done if something happened along the lines what happened the night before last," he said in the clip. "My heart goes out to the families to the people who are in pain.
"I feel like the whole world is in pain right now. I just want to remind people in times like these not to give up on themselves, not to give up on humanity. The only way we're going to get through this is rising above and doing it out of love."
In the second video, Sean continues to share his message of support: "My heart goes to anyone who needs it. Prayers are for anyone who needs it. Don't give up. Keep your faith strong, keep your God strong. And like I said let's take responsibility for not just ourselves but for others too. You know what I'm saying? Love." Watch the videoshere.
