Marilyn Manson's concert in NYC came to a halt when 2 giant gun props came crashing down on him ... sending the rocker to the hospital.
Manson was reportedly about an hour into his show at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom -- performing "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" -- when the stage prop fell on top of him.
According to various reports ... it took several minutes for emergency workers to get Manson out from under the props, and he was put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital.
No word yet on Manson's injuries, but the rest of the show was canceled.
Throughout her career, Azealia Banks' career has been hampered by feuds with other artists. After being embroiled in a heated skirmish with Cardi B on social media earlier this week, Banks turned the page on Thursday night (Sept. 28), when she apologized to Nicki Minaj on Instagram.
Banks reached out to Minaj via direct message and lauded the "No Frauds" MC for her artistry and intellect. "I really do enjoy your artistry and think you’re so intelligent and clever," said Banks. "You have a really brilliant art mind and often times remind me a lot of myself."
To Banks' surprise, Minaj responded and encouraged the embattled star to focus on her career. "You're very talented & very smart," she said. "Focus on what really matters from now on." According to Banks, she "cried a bit when [Minaj] responded."
Earlier this week, Banks dubbed Cardi B a "poor man's Nicki," which sparked a contentious feud between the MCs. Cardi retaliated and posted a video of Banks dancing with vigor to "Bodak Yellow" in the club, which infuriated the "212" star. As a result, Banks attacked Cardi with claims that she uses a ghostwriter.
In August Maroon 5 shared their new single “What Lovers Do” featuring SZA, and now they’re back with the video directed by Joseph Kahn. The video is a crazy chase between frontman Adam Levine and SZA through many worlds including the antarctic, under the ocean, and Las Vegas. CGI dinosaurs, squirrels, dolphins, and other creatures also make an appearance. At the end of the video, Levine wakes up in hospital, and we realize the crazy chase has all been a sedated fantasy with his nurse, SZA, standing by his bed. Watch the video above.
Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan will join Katy Perry as hosts on the reboot of American Idol. Variety had previously reported in May that the “Firework” singer would be taking home $25 million for the upcoming season, her first with the Idol franchise, while The Hollywood Reporter first reported Bryan joining the judges' table earlier this week.
In a tweet, Ryan Seacrest confirmed his new Idol co-stars, writing, “So who wants to start the @americanidol group chat? @katyperry @lukebryanonline @lionelrichie #TheNextIdol”
“I am very excited to be joining Katy, Luke and Ryan on ‘American Idol,’” said Richie, according to a press release. “As a singer, songwriter and producer, I feel I can bring a great deal of experience to the table. It’s going to be so much fun!”
Shooting will begin Tuesday (Oct. 3).
Vic Mensa self-directed video, features Mensa driving around recklessly on the streets both on a motorcycle and in a car. We get flashbacks of his mother tucking him in as a child and other weird images. The grandmother with the “Southside” tattoo etched around her neck is an eye-opener.
“The ‘Rollin’ Like A Stoner’ video is about reckless abandon and escapism,” said Mensa in a statement to Merry Jane. “The whole thing was filmed on a stage, as a comment on life as an entertainer. I was watching films like Bye Bye Life and Birdman, and 1920s westerns.”
“Rollin’ Like a Stoner” is from Mensa’s latest album, The Autobiography. The “U Mad” rapper will join JAY-Z on his “4:44 Tour” tour next month. But before that, you can watch Vic Mensa perform live in concert this Saturday (Sept. 30) in New York. Just tune into TIDAL.com at 9:30PM ET to watch it go down.
Fans have suggested that Miley Cyrus’ song, 'She's Not Him' is about Stella Maxwell, with whom Cyrus was rumored to be in a brief casual relationship with back in 2015. Maxwell, a Victoria’s Secret model, has been dating Kristen Stewart since 2016.
Previously, Cyrus opened up about her pansexuality in a Billboard cover story, and an interview with Variety. The singer explained her discomfort with being labeled bisexual, as she never thought of her own sexuality in gendered terms. “My whole life, I didn’t understand my own gender and my own sexuality,” explained Cyrus. “I always hated the word ‘bisexual,’ because that’s even putting me in a box. I don’t ever think about someone being a boy or someone being a girl.”
Her new song, “She’s Not Him,” takes an approach to pansexual love in a way that has yet to appear in mainstream music. In this song, her eventual return to a male does not negate her relationship with a woman.
The song sits quite low on the track list of Younger Now, but the choice to include this story remains significant. Younger Now is Cyrus’ most understated musical project yet, and while not packed with the pop bangers fans have gotten used to, it allows “She’s Not Him” to stand out as an authentic ode to love that was not meant to last. The pansexual love story is not a gimmick - it’s an honest account.
The official music video for David Guetta and Justin Bieber's hit "2U," was just released.
The Visuals feature a couple fights in a doomed diner through eras, zombie apocalypses, cartoon universes, and more casual variations. The fun experiment was directed by director duo Brewer, whose work you may remember from the crowd-sourced clip for Jack Ü's "Where Are Ü Now?"
"When we first heard '2U,' we were struck by how the music and lyrics supported each other," the duo says in a press release. "The song perfectly captures the emotional phenomenon of loving someone to the point where there’s nothing you wouldn’t do for them. We thought it would be great to embrace this idea, being as it’s one of our most beloved cultural clichés, and repeat it over and over again to try to see if through repetition a new perspective, a new deconstruction, could happen. It’s like saying a word over and over again. Eventually, it starts to lose its shape. We hope people are compelled to watch it multiple times, because there is a lot of fun stuff hiding in the frames."

The last men standing will celebrate their 12th year in the K-pop industry with a new album, Super Junior confirmed through social media yesterday.
On Tuesday (Sept. 26), active members of the Korean boy band took en masse to Instagram to share screencaps of a logo proclaiming “SJ Returns” and a countdown, which appeared on their website simultaneously to the social media posts. Ticking down to November 6, Super Junior revealed that their next album will coincide with the 12th anniversary of their debut with "Twins (Knock Out)" in 2005.
The album comes two years since Super Junior's last release as a group, the 10th anniversary album Devil and its reissue Magic.
The active members of the band have been teasing the new comeback for weeks on social media, throwing the Korean word for “warning” into numerous conversations, tipping fans off about their upcoming music, and potentially hinting to the name of the title track.
The act, which had 13-15 members at its height, will make its return with seven members: Leeteuk, Heechul, Yesung, Shindong, Siwon (who shared the counter belatedly on Instagram and comically gave himself a "warning"), Eunhyuk, and Donghae. Two other members, Ryeowook and Kyuhyun, are serving in the military, while the group’s final members, Kangin and Sungmin, are on break due to negative public opinion. (Another two, Zhou Mi and Henry, partake primarily only in the group’s Mandarin releases, though each has also pursued his own solo career.)
After rising to prominence in 2009 with the massive hit “Sorry Sorry,” the band has revamped its style over the years, moving from propulsive dance music into smoother pop stylings with their more recent singles, and also explored a variety of sounds through subunit activities. Known as multi-talented entertainers -- group members have gained renown in a variety of entertainment fields -- Super Junior's one of handful of K-pop acts to have surpassed the ten-year mark and remained active in the industry.
After dropping “Lady In Yellow” video, Lil Yachty is back with a new song “On Me” featuring Young Thug. The song will appear on the upcoming Quality Control mixtape.
Both Lil Boat and Thugger are slurring their nursery-rhyme verses over video game-sounding productions. Throughout the song, the rap tandem rapping about gold diggers who are trying to trap them.
“22 hoes on me, 22 clothes on me, oh / 22 golds on me, 22 broads on me (keep broads on me) / Givin’ you swag for free / Learn how to dress from me (how to dress from me) / Keepin’ these hoes beneath / Keepin’ ’em beneath my feet (okay),” spits Young Thug.
Lil Yachty has been delivering a slew of content as of late. He recently dropped an animated virtual reality video “Forever Young” featuring Diplo and the Castaway-inspired clip for “Better.”
Pop superstar Justin Timberlake is reportedly "finalizing" a deal to perform at the event for the first time in 13 years.
According to US Magazine, Timberlake and the NFL are locking down a deal that will put him on the stage for the first time since the Patriots and Panthers played in the Super Bowl in 2004, when he very controversially ripped off part of Janet Jackson's bustier.
The NFL was reportedly rejected by a pair of big-name performers, including rapper Jay-Z and Adele.
There was also some chatter in the US Magazine report that Timberlake could be joined on the stage by Jay-Z, although a source told US that "as of right now, it will just be Justin — no surprise performers."
Timberlake's previous performance changed the way the halftime shows operate, with the Federal Communications Commission implementing a delay on live broadcasts after Jackson's nipple was revealed during the live broadcast rendition of Timberlake's song "Rock Your Body."
The 2018 arena tour kicks off January 5th at Minneapolis' Target Center and runs through February 28th with a tour-closing gig in Honolulu, Hawaii. Jhene Aiko and Kali Uchis will serve as Del Rey's two opening acts for the trek.
Tickets for the LA to the Moon Tour go on sale starting September 28th for fans who purchase merchandise at Del Rey's online shop. A pre-sale follows September 29th before the general on-sale begins October 2nd.
Prior to her trek, on November 6th, Del Rey will appear at the Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen at Montreal's Bell Center. Elvis Costello, Sting, Feist, the Lumineers and Philip Glass are also among the artists who will remember Cohen in his hometown on the one-year anniversary of the music legend's death.
Yo Gotti is on the LAPD's radar as a person of interest in the shooting of Young Dolph.
Law enforcement sources say that Gotti and Young Dolph were both staying at the Loews Hotel in Hollywood Tuesday when their crews got into some sort of disagreement, then just a short time later, shots were fired outside the hotel.
Sources tell TMZ that witnesses at the scene told officers Gotti was involved.
Back in February Blac Youngsta -- who is signed with Yo Gotti -- was accused of shooting over a hundred bullets at Dolph's SUV in Charlotte. Youngsta eventually turned himself in.

Patient fans who’ve been on the hunt for a copy of Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ Fever to Tell are in luck. The band has announced that their 2003 debut album – known for its distinctive subway-inspired graffiti cover – will be reissued in a variety of formats.
Fever to Tell hasn’t been available on vinyl for a decade. Along with that standard LP edition, there will also be deluxe box, digital deluxe and standard re-mastered versions of the album, which is approaching its 15th anniversary. They’re due in stores on Oct. 20 via Interscope Records / UMe.
“A friend of a friend kept asking if we were ever gonna put Fever To Tell out on vinyl as it hasn’t been on vinyl in 10 years,” the band wrote in a statement. “That’s not right. So here it is on vinyl for the first time in 10 years, plus a time capsule of photos, demos (first ever recorded), a mini film documenting our near downfall and other fun memorabilia, from the turn-of-the-century New York City – made with love and the usual blood, sweat and tears of Yeah Yeah Yeahs.”
To celebrate the reissue, Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released the song “Shake It,” which you can listen to above. They’ve also added two shows to their upcoming roster. They’ll play the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles on Oct. 25 and the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn on Nov. 7.

Rapper Young Dolph has been shot in Hollywood and has been rushed to a local hospital.
According to sources, Dolph was outside The Shoe Palace at Hollywood and Highland when he was shot. Officers responded and paramedics were called. There have been no arrests and no one seems to know as of yet how many people were involved with shooting or what a possible motive may have been.
Back in February, Dolph’s SUV was shot at multiple times in Charlotte, N.C. Fellow rapper Blac Youngsta surrendered to the police for his alleged involvement in the incident, despite proclaiming his innocence. In July, a Dolph concert in Houston ended in gunfire.
Regarding his current situation in Hollywood, Dolph’s injuries aren’t life-threatening but he reportedly suffered multiple gunshot wounds. More on this as it develops.
