Meek Mill Wants Celeb Boxing Match With Drake?

(Radio.com) Meek Mill has reportedly started up his feud with Drake again. He is allegedly taking a page out of Chris Brown and Soulja Boy's book, and proposing a celebrity boxing match with Drake.

A Facebook Live video allegedly shows Meek at the gym talking trash about fighting Drake. Mill can not be seen onscreen, but a voice comes across loud and clear.

"I'd beat Drizzy the f— up for $5 mil," he said. "Of course I would. We gonna let Nicki [Minaj] be the ring girl. Y'all come to see that fight, wouldn't y'all? Y'all'd spend $100 a ticket for that." Read more here.

Taylor Swift Teases Zayn Malik Collab In Birthday Message

(Radio.com) "HAPPY Z DAY." That's the birthday message Taylor Swift left on Instagram for the now 24-year old Zayn Malik last Thursday (Jan. 12). The note may offer a sneak peek of a new project the pair have been working on.

The two pop superstars teamed up for a track on the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, and there is speculation that the image accompanying the post features a still from a music video for their song, 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever." And just last week reports surfaced that the two had damaged a London hotel room during the making of a video.

Malik recently credited his girlfriend Gigi Hadid for initiating the collaboration with Swift. In a radio interview, the former One Directioner shared, "The interesting thing was she's actually friends with Gi, so she already reached out because [producer] Jack [Antonoff] had just played her the song anyway. She mentioned to me that she liked the song so I already kind of knew in the back of my head that she liked it so I asked her if she wanted to be on it and she was cool with it." See the post here.

Michael Jackson Comedy Pulled Following Protests

(Radio.com) Michael Jackson's daughter Paris said she was 'incredibly offended" when she saw the trailer for the episode of the Sky Arts program Urban Myths, and because of her disdain the network has pulled the show.

The episode focused on Jackson's infamous road trip from New York to Los Angeles with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after the 9/11 attacks. In addition to Joseph Fiennes playing Jackson, the show, which was scheduled to air January 19, featured Stockard Channing as Taylor and Brian Cox as Brando.

"It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother Liz as well," Paris tweeted. Read the network's statement about the cancelation here.

James Corden Turns Kanye West Lyrics Into Soap Opera

(Radio.com) Kanye West lives a pretty dramatic life, and James Corden drew from the drama of his lyrics to create a soap opera bit on The Late Late Show on Thursday night (Jan. 12).

The star-studded spoof features actors speaking in lines from West's songs. 'The Bold and the Lyrical" features Bryan Cranston and Jessica Biel as the bride and groom, Corden as the drunk audience member, Giovanni Ribisi is the interrupting ex, and bandleader Reggie Watts is 'the priest" officiating the events. Biel starts off saying "diamonds are forever" to her intended husband Cranston, who responds, "…forever, ever?"

"Forever, ever," she replies. As hilarity ensues, a tipsy Corden offers up a "toast for the douchebags" and goes to "Runaway" to encourage for Biel to break out.

"Get down girl, go 'head, get down," the host says to Biel as he takes her hand and she convincingly delivers the lyric, "I'm in love with you, but the vibe is wrong."

"How could you be so heartless?" Cranston carried on. Don't miss the ending here.

David Bowie's 'Lazarus' Originally Involved Fake Bob Dylan Songs

(Radio.com) David Bowie originally had a much different idea for his musical Lazarus than what ended up being produced. Nearly ten years ago, he approached author Michael Cunningham about working together on a project that he hoped would somehow involve aliens, a mariachi band and an entire catalogue of undiscovered Bob Dylan songs he would write himself.

Details about the musical, which never came to light because Bowie suffered a heart attack in 2004 and had to shelve the idea, were revealed in a new piece Cunningham penned for GQ. He shared the surprising phone call he received from Bowie himself and the resulting work the two put in together.

In addition to an expanded alien narrative that went above and beyond what Bowie had done in the 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth, Cunningham wrote, "The plot would revolve around a stockpile of unknown, unrecorded Bob Dylan songs, which had been discovered after Dylan died. David himself would write the hitherto-unknown songs."

What those Bowie-as-Dylan songs sound like will forever be a mystery because he took things in a different direction after his heart attack. Bowie ended up adapting the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth for the stage, which starred Michael C. Hall in both the New York and London production. Still, since he could do a mean Bruce Springsteen and Lou Reed impression, it seems likely he would've nailed Dylan too. Read more here.

Dierks Bentley Gets Personal With 'Black' Video

(Radio.com) Dierks Bentley's latest music video "Black" is not only extremely personal, but it's perhaps his most ambitious to date. "I've shot like 25 or 26 videos, and this is definitely the one that will be the most meaningful to me," he told Entertainment Weekly.

That might have something to do with his co-star. Bentley's wife Cassidy appears in the video, which they shot in Reykjavik, Iceland. "Black" is the title track on Bentley's latest album, a project detailing his marriage to Cassidy and the ups and downs they've faced. But there's even more significance to the title because "Black" is Cassidy's maiden name.

Bentley had to talk Cassidy into appearing on camera because she's shy, but once she saw the finished product she knew they'd done something special. "When I think about intimacy, you do go through these landscapes together that are totally foreign that you've never been in," she said about the video's central theme. Read more here.

Ed Sheeran Talks New Single 'Shape of You'

(Radio.com) Ed Sheeran spoke with Radio.com about the song "Shape of You," which was one of the two new singles he recently released from his forthcoming studio album.


"'Shape of You' came very quickly," he tells Radio.com. "It was only really finished a month ago, it was one of four songs written in a day." He notes that the song was originally much more sparse: "It was just the marimba and the vocal [originally]."

And at first, he considered giving "Shape of You" to Rihanna, but then decided that the line about "Putting 'Van the Man' on the jukebox" — a reference to Van Morrison — might not work for her. He tells Radio.com that he may have been wrong about that, and that the lyrics may have worked for Rihanna.

"You know what, she's the type of person who probably is banging Van Morrison. But I'm glad I kept it, I don't want to be just a one-trick pony and just do acoustic songwriter ballads, so it's nice to have something like that to put out there. "Read more here.

Jimmy Fallon and Kevin Bacon Put New Spin On Kinks Classic

(Radio.com) The Kinks' "Lola" is a very simple song to sing if you know how to spell. If you don't, it's a very difficult song to sing and Jimmy Fallon put this theory to the test last week.

During an appearance with Kevin Bacon, Fallon brushed off his best Kinks impression, throwing words like "hola," "yoga" and "granola" around with ease. The spelling bee turned ugly when the word "doughnut" appeared in the lyrics.

"We can't spell doughnut! It's so hard to spell! Why's it so hard! To spell doughnut!" Fallon exclaimed in the bridge. He moved on to simpler things, like Sammy S-O-S-A. Watch the tricky cover here.

Halsey Streams New Song 'Not Afraid Anymore'

Like so many of the hit singles that emerged from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack in 2015, Halsey's contribution has a dark, brooding quality complete with pulsating rhythms and swelling synths.

She lets her voice rip on the chorus, climbing to its fullest breath. "So touch me like you never/ And push me like you never/ And touch me like you never/ Cuz I am not afraid, I am not afraid anymore," she sings on the chorus, her voice pushing each concluding word to its limit.

Halsey follows Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik's collaboration, "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" for the series' latest soundtrack installment with John Legend, Nicki Minaj, Nick Jonas and more contributing songs yet to come. Listen to "Not Afraid Anymore" here.

Over the course of the video, Sophie and Noah spiral out, their addictions getting the best of them, but it turns out that build-up was actually an extended flashback.

"How Not To" switches gears towards the end when the couple show up at a one-year sobriety party that Dan + Shay and their other friends throw them. Their love for one another helps them make it through their first year of recovery. "How Not To" appears on Dan + Shay's sophomore album Obsessed. Watch the video here.

There will also be arrangements by the Pulitzer Prize winning composer David Lang, who also scored Paolo Sorrenti's most recent movies (The Great Beauty and Youth); Opera Company of Philadelphia composer in residence, Missy Mazzoli; Icelandic composer Pαll Ragnar Pαlsson; and Daniel Bjarnarson, who first worked with Sigur Rσs when he conducted the session on the band's song "Αra Bαtur" at London's Abbey Road for the Meπ suπ ν eyrum...album in 2008, and is co-curator of the Disney Hall's Reykjavνk Festival.
