He turned himself in at a Hollywood police station and was released two hours later on $50,000 bail, reports Billboard. Last week, Andrea Buera told the press that Songz was upset that she was talking to another man at a party on February 18, and repeatedly punched her.

"For weeks my lawyers & Mgmt have asked me not to comment on this and I initially agreed," he wrote. "But this morning I feel that my fam, the women that raised me, my friends & fans especially the youth need to hear from me. I am being lied on and falsely accused for someone's personal gain."

Selena Gomez Slams 'Beauty Myth' In Social Media Video

(Radio.com) In a new video shared to Instagram, Selena Gomez hits out against "the beauty myth" which demands "physical perfection" and fuels "self-hatred." She began the caption with a definition:

"The beauty myth," Selena wrote. "An obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness, and self-hatred as she tries to fulfill society's impossible definition of flawless beauty."

The accompanying video shows Gomez relaxing on a boat with friends in Sydney, Australia. Grainy, retro shots of the famed harbor bridge and the Sydney Opera House are set to "Dreams Tonite" by Alvvays.

"I chose to take care of myself because I want to, not to prove anything to anyone. Wind in her sails," Selena concluded. Watch Selena's video here.

Blake Shelton No Match For Jimmy Fallon On 'Name That Tune'

(Radio.com) Country music icon, TV star, funnyman--there's not a lot Blake Shelton can't do. Among that short list of things Shelton isn't exactly great at: playing "Name That Tune."

Shelton appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, where he took on the host in a spirited round of the game, and things didn't exactly go well.

Shelton was able to squeak out a couple of correct answers, but a determined Fallon ruled the round. Things really got interesting when both guys took awhile to correctly determine that the song in question was Gwen Stefani's 2004 hit, "Hollaback Girl."

When Fallon correctly called it and Shelton recognized the song, the country star had to take a seat and contemplate the fallout. "All I know is that Blake is in a lot of trouble right now," Fallon joked.

"I came to this show to promote my album, and I am losing everything in my life," Shelton lamented. See if Shelton mounted a comeback against Fallon in the clip that's well worth watching here.

"But this song is about that morning you wake up and you don't even think about it anymore. It holds no power, no weight in your world, and consumes your thoughts no longer. It's a song about freedom, honestly."

"I Don't Think About You" is taken from Clarkson's most recent album, Meaning of Life. Watch the video here.

Singled Out: The Tuten Brothers' Hallelujah

Up and coming country band The Tuten Brothers has just released their new single "Hallelujah" and to celebrate we asked Sam Tuten to tell us the story behind the track. Here is the story:

"Hallelujah" is the story of one of the hardest times in my life. I was struggling to manage a busy schedule, maintain a difficult relationship with my brother, and battle the pervasive feeling that I was failing in every aspect of my life. I started to see my heart for what it actually was: broken and dirty.

During a sleepless night (one of the best times to write a song), I started to craft the words for "Hallelujah." Spilling my heart out on the page, the words began to become music that spoke everything that I was feeling. This song admits to my brokenness and despair and describes my personal journey of finding hope in the free grace of God.

The first time we played "Hallelujah" in front of a live crowd was a powerful experience. Two days after we released the song, we headlined a show at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, Georgia with over 600 fans. I briefly shared the story behind the song with our fans who had never heard it. As I played it, I saw one flashlight go up in the air, waving back and forth. To my surprise, hundreds of others joined in with their flashlights in the air. Every light in the house was turned off and the flashlights were the only things lighting up the room. It was an intimate moment, in which I could no longer see anyone in the crowd and it caused me to feel strangely alone. In that moment, it was only the band and me before God, singing a county song of brokenness and redemption.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself right here!
