KELLY CLARKSON ADDED TO 'VH-1 DIVAS' LINEUP:
This year's "VH1 Divas" bill just got a bit feistier. Show vet and Miss Independent herself Kelly Clarkson has been added to the A-list lineup, as have divo rapper Pitbull, Melanie Fiona and Metric. Clarkson has appeared on the show twice before, in 2009 and 2011. This marks the first time for the other newly announced performers. They'll join host Adam Lambert and previously announced performers Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Kelly Rowland, Ciara and Jordin Sparks.
GREEN DAY--FINAL ALBUM IN TRILOGY STREAMING NOW:
And last but not least comes ¡Tré!, the final installment of Green Day‘s ambitious three-album run. These last twelve songs...now streaming in full thanks to iHeartRadio...are, by Billie Joe Armstrong‘s own description, “epic” and meant for “cleaning up the mess.” But “cleaning up the mess” in the most punk-y fun manner, of course, because nothing here is a drag.
MUSE SHELVES TOUR DATES DUE TO MATT BELLAMY'S BROKEN FOOT:
Muse have canceled a handful of tour dates following news that frontman Matt Bellamy broke his foot. The band confirmed the news in an official statement, noting that the canceled dates were scratched from the Scandinavian leg of their tour.
"We're very sorry to have to announce that Muse's forthcoming shows in Oslo, Stockholm and Malmo have been canceled as Matt has broken two bones in his foot," the band wrote. "The band have therefore made the difficult decision to cancel these gigs as they feel that they will not be able to do justice to their live show and the fans who have bought tickets with Matt performing on crutches."
News of Bellamy's broken foot came on November 29 when he tweeted photos of his X-rays: "Ouch! Broke my foot...I was running barefoot and slipped...my foot broke the fall on a concrete step!"
