Lady Gaga will perform at the American Music Awards next month.
The "Applause" singer will join Miley Cyrus in the line-up of stars who will take to the stage at the ceremony held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles on November 24. The announcement follows reports that One Direction are set to make their on-stage debut at the annual awards, and it's highly likely the boys - Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan - will perform their new single "Story of My Life," taken from their third album Midnight Memories, which is due for release a day later.
"Thrift Shop" hitmakers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are also confirmed to perform at the AMAs after previously leading the nominations with six nods, including consideration for Artist of the Year, Single of the Year and New Artist of the Year.
Following closely behind is Justin Timberlake, who has been named in five categories, as has "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer Taylor Swift. Other highly anticipated performances on the night will include Kendrick Lamar, who made waves this year with breakthrough album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City, and country star Luke Bryan.
Bruno Mars has been confirmed to perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards next month.
The "Gorilla" singer - who is nominated for three awards including Best Male and Best Song - is the latest star announced to take the stage at the music ceremony, which hits the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam next November 10. It's been two years since Bruno last performed on the EMA stage in Belfast, Ireland, where he took also took home two awards.
"We had a blast the last time, and I can't wait to do it again on the 10th!" the 28-year-old singer said.
Other stars set to appear at the MTV EMAs include Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Kings of Leon.
Robin Thicke is being sued for copyright infringement over his hit song "Blurred Lines."
Marvin Gaye's children have filed legal papers accusing the singer and Pharrell Williams, who features on the track, of copying elements of the song "Got To Give It Up," according to The Hollywood Reporter. They are seeking damages and a portion of the profits from the song, which has been one of the biggest hits of 2013.
The lawsuit is in response to a claim brought in August by Robin and Pharrell, asking a court to rule their song did not infringe Marvin's copyright. In their legal papers - also filed on behalf of fellow collaborator T.I. (Clifford Harris, Jr.) - the trio insisted there were no similarities between the two songs "other than commonplace musical elements."
Beyonce's album is "almost done."
Producer Pharrell Williams has been working with the "Bow Down" hitmaker on her fifth album - which has been rumored for release throughout 2013 - and says she is nearing completion. "B's album is crazy. Let me tell you what it is. She's very particular. She's a Virgo. And she's not going to put it out until it's ready and feels like it's right to her. She's got a very specific taste. I guess that's the reason she's Beyonce. Her name is recognizable around the globe and that's huge. That comes from someone that has very particular taste. When you know what you want, you won't stop until you get it. [Other people are hearing her album] and are like 'Whoa!' And she's like, 'Yeah, I'm almost done.' And she's the queen," he said.
So far new tracks released by Beyonce in 2013 include "Standing on the Sun" and "Grown Woman," which were used in adverts, and she previewed another composition, "Bow Down / I Been On" on her blog, but the album is yet to get a title or release date.
Lady Gaga will headline the first ever YouTube Music Awards.
The "Bad Romance" hitmaker will join Arcade Fire and Eminem on November 3 at the inaugural event which will honor artists who have shared their work through the popular video-sharing website.
"It's our chance to really celebrate the artists and the songs that have become hits on YouTube over the past year," said YouTube's vice president of marketing Danielle Tiedt.
There will be a number of performances taking place across the globe - including Seoul, Moscow, London and Brazil - before a live 90-minute show which will be streamed from Pier 36 in Manhattan, New York City.
Director Spike Jonze - who has worked on videos for a host of top artists including Weezer, P. Daddy, the Chemical Brothers, Bjork and R.E.M. - has been cast as creative director for the production and is looking forward to working with the talent. "Instead of bands performing to an audience on a stage, we're going to have a warehouse with all these different sets and try to make live music videos throughout the night. The idea is let's get a bunch of interesting artists together and have a night that's all about making things," he said, according to the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift are to collaborate on a new track.
The 44-year-old singer and the "Everything Has Changed" hitmaker have reportedly locked down a plan to duet on Jennifer's upcoming eighth studio album - expected later this year - after they performed together during Taylor's final Red Tour show last month.
"Both of them are huge fans of each other and excited to work together!" a source said.
The blonde beauty recently shared behind-the-scenes footage from her gig at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, which shows Jennifer saying, "Thank you so much for allowing our family to come and be a part of your family. To create a beautiful moment, thank you, Taylor, for being so gracious and beautiful and loving me enough to have me be here tonight. I feel very blessed to be able to share the stage with you, and I just hope that everybody has the best show that they could ever have."
Bruno Mars is set to perform at the half time show of the 2014 Super Bowl.
The "Treasure" singer will be the musical act at the NFL Super Bowl XVLIII, held at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2 next year. A source told the Los Angeles Times that the 27-year-old star, who recently wrapped his Moonshine Jungle tour, has already been asked to perform during one of the biggest TV events in America, watched by an estimated 114 million every year. An official announcement is expected to be made in New York's Times Square as early as tomorrow.
This will mark the first time Bruno has appeared at the Super Bowl and it was originally thought that New Jersey natives Bon Jovi would be asked to perform. Super Bowl performances usually feature a number of special guests but it is not yet known who will join Bruno on stage.
Beyonce Knowles performed at this year's event in New Orleans and was joined on stage by her former Destiny's Child band members, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
Wiz Khalifa says he collaborated with Adele on his forthcoming album Blacc Hollywood. The "Black and Yellow" rapper claims he has recorded tracks with Miley Cyrus and the "Someone Like You" hitmaker, who has been on hiatus since the birth of her son Angelo last October.
Speaking of the unlikely collaboration to Fuse.TV, Wiz explained, "I got a lot of guest appearances that I've already done, but none of them have been cleared for the album yet, I got songs with Miley [Cyrus], I got songs with Adele."
Kelly Osbourne wished Miley Cyrus had "put her tongue in her mouth" during her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards.
The 28-year-old star has given her close friend some words of advice following her racy appearance with Robin Thicke at the VMAs on Sunday, which featured her twerking and grinding against Robin during their rendition of his hit "Blurred Lines." Miley, 20, also repeatedly licked her lips as she danced in a two-piece, flesh coloured latex bikini and rubbed herself suggestively with a foam finger.
During a special episode of Fashion Police which aired on Monday night, Kelly's co-stars, including Joan Rivers, criticized Miley's risque appearance - which left many famous faces in the audience at the VMAs, such as Taylor Swift and One Direction star Niall Horan, stunned.
Kelly insisted she loved her pal before offering her words of wisdom, saying, "I look at the performance and yes, I do have a lot of the same opinions as you guys about it ... Look Miley's my friend and I love her, and I have her back no matter what, but as her friend I'm going to tell her - put your f***ing tongue in your mouth! I love you, but just put your tongue in your mouth."
Ciara is so focused on providing her fans entertainment that she doesn't let anything stop her - not even when she's being served in the middle of her show. Talk about dedication!
While performing a concert in celebration of L.A. Pride, the 27 year-old singer received papers from what she thought was a fan - only to realize that they were legal documents informing her of a lawsuit filed against her. Without hesitating, Ciara quickly threw the papers back at the woman and continued with her performance without having paused for a moment.
The lawsuit - filed by West Hollywood club The Factory - claims that the R&B singer failed to appear for a concert last Friday for which she had signed a $10,000 contract. The club says that Ciara informed them that she couldn't perform due to her obligations with L.A. Pride, but agreed to appearing at the venue - a promise the club claims that she didn't uphold. Ciara's reps say that they had informed The Factory that she would be unable to appear, but they continued to promote her appearance there anyway.
