Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck told a local television station that the rapper was "targeted because of who he is and some kind of beef that's ongoing." He added that he thinks the attack that left Dolph critically wounded was due to a previous altercation that "he brought with him from across the United States." Read morehere.

P!nk explained the song's background in two tweets last night. "Tomorrow I'm releasing the title track to BEAUTIFUL TRAUMA," she wrote. "I wrote the song with a very awesome person @jackantonoff and named the album after it (because) life is f—ing traumatic. But it's also incredibly beautiful, too. There's a lot of beauty still and beautiful souls. Enjoy."
"Beautiful Trauma" opens with P!nk's breathy vocals over a tinkling piano line. When the beat drops, the singer switches to her signature bluesy pop-rock bravura, singing about her personal rock bottom and overcoming emotional baggage. The confessional lyrics explore how personal trauma can cause problems in relationships. Like "What About Us," it's another catchy, powerful slam dunk from P!nk.
"We were on fire/I slashed your tires," she sings. "It's like we burned so bright we burnt out/I made you chase me, I wasn't that friendly/My love, my drug, we're f—ed up." Listen to the songhere.
In the wake of tragedy, Lady Antebellum will make a $200,000 from LadyAID to hurricane relief efforts via MusiCares and United for Puerto Rico.
"We got to meet so many locals and enjoy just everything that Puerto Rico has to offer and so to see all the devastation we are just completely heartbroken," said Hillary Scott in a prepared statement. "We want to do everything we can to support this incredible place and these incredible people. We just hope and pray for their safety and that rebuilding happens quickly. We encourage everyone to give whatever they can to help."
"We have always loved traveling to the Caribbean, and Puerto Rico was one of those places we've always wanted to go and couldn't have been a better location for this video," added Charles Kelley. "I think one of the coolest things was all of the dancing extras were just people off the street that our director found. They already just exuded that vibrant energy that's such a part of the people and culture in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean as a whole."
"We save a portion of every ticket out there on the road to go towards LadyAID," noted Dave Haywood. "After spending time in San Juan, Puerto Rico, we fell in love with the area, the culture, the people, and that country – it was just a beautiful beautiful place. Our hearts have been completely broken watching the devastation from all of these hurricanes. So, for us a band, we're now personally connected to helping support those affected by the hurricanes."

In a new video for the song, Young Thug and Future test their hypothesis on a yacht in a series of Girls Gone Wild-style party scenarios. The party gets out of hand and ultimately the luxury vacation goes full-tilt Caligula.
Women romp on beds, make out with one another and as day turns to night, the rappers turn to a night-vision camera. It's certainly one interpretation of "having it all."
"Relationship" is the sixth track on Young Thug's Thugger Girls mixtape and was produced by Billboard Hitmakers and BLSSD. Watch the video here: Watch the video, which contains explicit lyrics,here.
Beyonce sent Gaga a sweatshirt from her Ivy Park clothing line, as well as a bouquet of flowers, which Gaga shared on social media. "Not having a good pain day. Thank you honey B for sending me this comfy sweatshirt," Gaga posted on Instagram alongside a selfie wearing the Ivy Park top. "Keeps me warm outside in a hammock so I can be w the trees, and the sky, and the sun and take deep breaths. Feel so lucky to have so much love â ¤ď¸Ź."
Gaga followed with another post showing a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Beyonce, explaining how Bey inspired her early in her career. "This was so kind. If I hadn't seen your videos on TV at grandmas house after I got dropped from def jam records, I would have given up," Gaga shared on the post. "You inspire us all. The dream you embody kept me going." See the Instagram postshere.
Cardi B explained that it all started with a case of road rage during a traffic jam that escalated to the point that she got out of her car to confront the other driver, who also got out of his car.
She admits to hitting the other car's window and throwing a bottle of water at the driver when her cousin (a passenger in Cardi B's car) got out to confront other driver.
"Out of nowhere a (police officer) put me in a chokehold with my hand on my back like a chicken wing," she said (via XXL). "And I couldn't breathe, and I couldn't believe it because' there's two men that are about to square up, but you're so p—- you won't even hold back the men, you're gonna put the female in a chokehold."
The rapper went on to explain why she decided to delete the tweets and not discuss the incident with the cops. "What bothers me the most is, yes, the police had been calling me, NYPD had been calling me, they want me to talk about it," she said. "They had went to my family house--and I don't really wanna make a statement 'cause I ain't never talk to no (police) before, and even if I did talk, are they gonna even do anything about it? Most likely not, so why would I waste my time?" Read morehere.
"Happy Birthday bossssssy! Thank you for the endless tools and the inspiration!" Drake wrote. "I would have been lost at how to maneuver this game without watching you do it first.

Tinashe's "Light Up the Night" makes its official debut during tonight's (Sept. 28) Thursday Night Football game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears at Wisconsin's Lambeau Field on CBS.
The network tweeted "Thursdays just got better on CBS. TNF is back with @ChicagoBears vs. @packers. Let's get it started, @Tinashe. https://t.co/cnf0JHxJKa— (@NFLonCBS) September 28, 2017" Check out a preview of the new trackhere.
'I had to go through a lot in life to get to where I am," Twain admits. 'I can actually say that I'm home. Optimism is what you hear."Twain spent much of 2015 and 2016 writing her fifth full-length album and describes the project as "an organic thread" with "a bit of a retro sound."
'I'm a songwriter first," she explains. 'That absolutely drives everything. It was a big step toward independence. I pushed myself, knowing it was going to scare me and knowing that I, alone, was responsible for however it turned out. I love collaborating, but I didn't want any emotional, psychological, or musical influence. The minute you invite somebody into that space, you're influenced. And then it wouldn't be me. It wouldn't be pure. This may be the purest work I ever do."
Throughout the release, Twain reveals the ups and downs of her divorce. On the lead single, 'Life's About to Get Good," she sings, 'I wasn't just broken; I was shattered," before adding, 'I'm ready to be loved, and loved the way I should, life's about to get good."
"The song started out being about letdown and disappointment," she admits. 'When I was writing it, I was at home looking out at the ocean, and I said to myself, 'Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it's so beautiful out. I'm not in the mood to write a feeling-sorry- for-myself song.' Because with all that s–t comes all the great things, too. That's what the song ended up being about. You can't have the good without the bad." Read morehere.
On Younger Now, her upcoming sixth studio album, Miley makes a hard pivot from shock and awe into something much more radical (for her): Bittersweet vibes, folksy melodies and evocative arrangements. Cyrus is credited as a writer on all 11 tracks and the lead single "Malibu" introduced fans to her breezy new aesthetic.
'I just want people to see that this is who I am right now," she told the Harper's Bazaar in July. "I'm not saying I've never been myself ' Who I was on the last record was really who I am. It's just 'myself' has been a lot of different people because I change a lot."
An element of Miley's evolution is reconnecting with her country music roots. Despite her born-and-bred Nashville bona fides, Cyrus told Billboard that she's never felt quite at home on the country circuit, despite her Johnny Cash tattoo and the fact that Dolly Parton is her godmother.
Parton appears on Younger Now's third track "Rainbowland," and "Inspired," one of the album's promotional singles, deploys a mournful country fiddle. Those whispers of Nashville fit surprisingly well into Miley's relaxed, Southern California aesthetic on "Malibu" and the title track "Younger Now." There's a fixed twang in her voice that--even on Bangerz' hip-hop and EDM-inspired cuts--has never quite abandoned her. Read morehere.
