Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Hip-Hop & Rap

Iggy AzaleaIggy Azalea has blasted her critics for doing nothing with their lives.

The "Fancy" hitmaker, who was bombarded with a stream of negative comments from Nicki Minaj's fans, slammed her haters in a series of angry posts on Twitter yesterday, and also hit back at her own supporters for participating in "disgusting fan wars."

"Just remember while your all at home online cracking jokes about artists etc that Most of you have done NOTHING. NOTHING! With your lives... Don't flex someone else's achievements. So many of you Internet kids quote the feats of others as if they were your own. And just to clarify for anyone who didn't understand that last statement goes out to people who bully others," the 23-year-old Australian star tweeted. "Fan wars back and forth and all that s**t is all bulls**t. Someone who's music you love doing great should never be an excuse to be awful to others. That's my point I suppose. I just find it really disgusting."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Rock

Kings of LeonKings of Leon are closer after hitting rock bottom in 2011.

The "Sex on Fire" hitmakers were forced to take a year long break due to exhaustion, coupled with rumors frontman Caleb Followill was drinking too much, and the family band believe their time out of the limelight has made them stronger.

During an interview with Fearne Cotton on UK station BBC Radio 1, Caleb said, "We're brothers and that's never going to change. We'll always have moments where we don't see eye-to-eye but I think it made us realize how much we love what we're doing. How blessed we are. I think it made us closer."

The "Sing" hitmaker slammed the 90's boyband - made up of Brian Littrell, A.J McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson - for letting their fans down by performing new material during their 20th Anniversary Tour. "I study how other people perform and that is unacceptable, as the Backstreet Boys have so many hits. Do not do that ever again, that is not fair," Sheeran said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Pop, New Releases

Lily AllenLily Allen is planning to apologize to Rita Ora and models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn over songs on her new album.

The "Hard Out Here" hitmaker, who is about to release her new record Sheezus, appears to hit out at the stars by joking about celebrities who attend corporate events. "I still need to write letters to Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. The song where I appear to slag off Rita and Jourdan is very much the same premise as Cheryl Tweedy. It's not about them, it's about the idea of them," she said, according to The Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, the 28-year-old star, who has made her comeback after a four-year hiatus, was copied into harsh emails about her new material from a focus group when her record label carried out market research for her new album: "I accidentally got copied in on a whole bunch of it and reading it was one of the most horrible moments of my life. They don't actually tell the people what it is that they're listening to. So a lot of it was just people going, 'Is this Lily Allen? It f****ng is Lily Allen', 'If this is her I thought she'd ####### retired, the stupid ****!'"

The Smiths Drummer Mike Joyce Wants a Reunion

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Reunions, Rumors, Rock

The SmithsThe Smiths' former drummer Mike Joyce insists he will never read Morrissey's autobiography.

The 50-year-old musician was with the band until they split in 1987 and later sued Morrissey and Johnny Marr over unpaid royalties, which is discussed in the book. Speaking to the new issue of Q magazine, Mike said, "I've not read the book, and I never will. I've got a pretty good idea of what's in there. I don't want to go down that route of putting out a statement saying that this or that is wrong."

However, he added that he would still be keen to take part in a Smiths reunion, saying, "Of course, we'd all do it we were asked. We were one of the greatest bands ever. As a performer, there was nobody better than Morrissey. But a reunion is never going to happen."

In November last year Johnny Marr was joined onstage by his former bandmate Andy Rourke in New York. The bass player accompanied him on two Smiths songs, "How Soon Is Now?" and "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want," during Johnny's sold out headline show at Webster Hall in Manhattan.

In an interview on REVOLT TV Timbaland said, "Jay and I fell out. I missed his 40th [birthday.] It was over petty stuff. It was more personal stuff and disagreements. It was not industry-related. It was personal, and I was wrong."

The stars, who have worked closely together for over ten years, reunited while Timbaland was working on Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience and resolved their issues when they realized they were "better together."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Gossip, Rumors, Hip-Hop & Rap, Pop

Ciara and RihannaRihanna slammed long-term rival Ciara for allowing the media to "play her."

The 25-year-old pop star hasn't always seen eye-to-eye with the "Body Party" singer and has taken a swipe at her for always mentioning her in interviews. "Why am I still the main topic of her interviews!! She don't be shame tho? How she let em [the press] play her like that everytime?? It's like, 'yea I know you're here to talk about (insert album title) but we wanna talk about a more relevant topic...Rihanna!!! Like she sits there and falls for it everytime!!!! #whurrisyopublicist (sic)" Rihanna posted on Instagram.

The bitter row between the singers initially began two years ago when Ciara accused the Barbadian babe of not being "the nicest" when they met at a party. Rihanna sarcastically replied," My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme.(sic)"

The spat between the pair has fizzled out over the past year but Ciara recently re-started the argument when addressing Rihanna on an episode of Fashion Police saying she was "nuts" for ignoring her.


Jon Bon Jovi Denies Richie Sambora Feud

Jon Bon Jovi and Richie SamboraRichie Sambora didn't quit Bon Jovi's Because We Can tour over money.

Singer Jon Bon Jovi insists the guitarist - who suddenly left the band ahead of a show in Calgary, Canada on April 2 - hasn't fallen out with him over finances, as suggested by some sources. "I think Richie's doing all right, I haven't spoken to him. We were surprised. It was 3:30pm on show day on Tuesday and we got a phone call that he wouldn't be there. It's a personal matter. Don't believe what you read on [website] TMZ because it's the furthest thing from the truth," a source said.

Richie - who has been replaced by Phil X for the remainder of the US leg of the tour - missed some of Bon Jovi's tour dates in 2011 after he checked into rehab for alcohol issues, but sources insist he is currently still sober.

Jon also discussed the band's What About Now album, saying his main inspiration was rock 'n' roll legends The Rolling Stones: "It's a wide array. I just downloaded [David] Bowie's record to listen to that. I just bought a Bruno Mars record before that. Influences? [Tom] Waits. [Leonard] Cohen. They're huge lyrical influences. For rock bands, I look to the Stones, who at least show me where the bar is so you know how far and how high I gotta jump."

Scott WeilandScott Weiland claims Stone Temple Pilots lied about firing him to boost ticket sales.

The "Sour Girl" band released a statement earlier this week, saying Scott had been sacked, although he counters the band had already organized a tour without him, and saw it as a way of promoting their shows.

"STP is not broken up. It's a whole thing to try to boost ticket sales," he told TMZ.

He added the band do not communicate very much, and said the rest of the group could never tour as Stone Temple Pilots without him, due to a clause in their contract. Scott also maintained the band is still intact and together. On Wednesday, the band released a one line statement, reading, "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."
