Fergie Addresses Quentin Tarantino Biting Incident

(Radio.com) Fergie wants to clear the air: the Quentin Tarantino incident was no big deal. The "Fergalicious" singer addressed the incident that occurred on the Planet Terror movie and captured in behind-the-scenes bonus footage found on the DVD release of the Grindhouse double-feature that also contains the movie Death Proof.

With the resurfaced footage making the rounds in light of actress Uma Thurman's recent accusations against Tarantino, Fergie made a point of setting the record straight at the wrap party for FOX singing competition show, The Four.

The singer urged that the incident not be taken out of context, and that there was nothing malicious behind Tarantino's on-set actions. "We were just kind of having banter. We were having a little bit of fun," she detailed. "But make no mistake, I don't want to take away from anyone's story, and I stand with every victim and everyone's story everywhere."

Taylor Swift And Ed Sheeran Release 'Endgame' Behind-the-Scenes Video

(Radio.com) Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have the rapport of an old married couple. The pop star super-friends put that connection on full display in a new behind-the-scenes video captured during the making of Swift's "Endgame" video, on which Sheeran is featured.

The clip opens with the scene that Swift teased earlier in the week, as she pokes fun at Sheeran's height and accuses him of "peacocking." The pair discuss the making of the track, with Sheeran revealing that he came up with his part in a dream, much to Swift's deadpan amusement.

Swift jokes about Sheeran bringing his "cadenced rhythmic thing" rap style to the track, something she says he hasn't done since the first album. They go on to break down his lyrics for the track, with Swift imitating Sheeran's English accent as he explains how the "Fourth of July" reference is in regards to how he connected with his fiancee, Cherry, at Swift's 4th of July party.

Later on the video, Swift shouts out the extras on the set, explaining how they make it look like they're at a raucous party while actually dancing to just a click track. Read more and watch the video here.

Drake Guests On BlocBoy JB's New Track and Video

(Radio.com) Drake just popped up on a new song and video by Memphis rapper BlocBoy JB called "Look Alive"; BlocBoy is signed to Drake's label OVO Sound and to make sure his new number impacts, Drake plays a major role.

Drizzy raps for the first half of the song before BlocBoy takes over with a rapid-fire delivery redolent of a less husky, more sedated Busta Rhymes. Near the end, Drake comes back in to deliver more effortless lines.

The video for the track was produced by Tay Keith and features bird's-eye shots of the city and scenes of the performers rapping and dancing with their crew on a basketball court and outside in the streets. During the lyrically explicit clip, they flip the bird, rifle through a deck of bills and watch a basketball game from the nosebleeds.

Recently, Drake shared two of his own new songs, "Diplomatic Immunity" and "God's Plan," the latter of which brought him to Miami to film a video at a public high school.

While he was there, he gave the school $25,000 for new uniforms, then he dropped by a city supermarket and bought groceries for everyone in the store. He also stopped at a homeless shelter for mothers and children and delivered a $50,000 donation as well as presents for the kids and Target gift cards for the women in the shelter.

Watch Drake in BlocBoy JB's lyrically explicit video for "Look Alive" here.

Diddy Explains 'Diddy Crop' that Deleted French Montana, Fabolous

(Radio.com) Diddy's social circle is so vast and diverse that all his friends and associates couldn't possibly fit in the frame of a single photo. At least, that's a generous reading of the "Diddy Crop," a social media power move that has cut Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and others out of photos on his Instagram feed.

Recently he shared an image on Instagram which seemed to edit French Montana and Fabolous out of a shot with Diddy, Kendrick Lamar and JAY-Z. "3 Kings! 3 GREAT FRIENDS! Love you guys. #BlackGreatness," he captioned the photo. "5 Kings! 5 GREAT FRIENDS!" was not the caption Diddy had in mind, so two had to get the chop -- or, rather, the crop.

During an appearance on Ellen, Diddy blamed his photography editor for the shady mix-up. "Sometimes my photography editor, he doesn't let me know when he's taking people out of the pictures," he said. "There were people that were taken away that didn't deserve to be taken away." Read more here.

Cam Takes On Cheaters With New 'Diane' Video

(Radio.com) Cam has found herself mixed up with a no-good cheating man, and now she's calling him out to his unsuspecting wife, Diane. That's the plot of Cam's colorful new video for "Diane," the first single from Cam's upcoming sophomore album, which is due this year.

The clip's retro '70s vibe is an ideal visual for the jaunty tune's infectious energy and candy-coated chorus. 'It's the apology so many spouses deserve, but never get," Cam said of the song in a press statement.

"The other woman is coming forward to break the news to the wife about an affair, respecting her enough to have that hard conversation, once she realized he was married. And in true country fashion, I've set the whole raw story to upbeat music, so you can dance while you process it all."

Directed by Daniel Carberry, the "Diane" video is a strong introduction to the next era of Cam. Watch it here.
