TLC won't stop chasing waterfalls, plans first new album in 10 years

Break out your baggy pants and bra tops — TLC is making a comeback album.

At least, T and C are. Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins announced this weekend in Liverpool that they’re hard at work on a series of projects — including their first new album in 10 years, a tour, and a VH1 biopic that will dramatize the events already told in Behind the Music‘s best-ever episode. While this news is exciting, it’s also bittersweet for fans who know the girl group can never truly be what it once was — TLC’s third member, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, died in a car crash in Honduras 10 years ago.

Still, the remaining members seem confident about their new album. “We’re going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time,” T-Boz told Rolling Stone. READ FULL STORY

Brian Wilson on being 'fired' from the Beach Boys: 'I was completely blindsided'

If there’s a lesson to be learned from the last few days in the saga of the Beach Boys, it’s that when dealing with conflict, it’s probably best to just sit down and talk about it, rather than release competing articles in the Los Angeles Times and make us feel sad for everyone involved.

Last week, Beach Boy Mike Love (who, like Axl Rose before him, controls the rights to the name of the band that made him famous) wrote a lengthy piece in the Times about how, contrary to the reports in the mean old media, he did not “fire” Brian Wilson from the group for a run of tour dates in the fall.

Not to be outdone, Wilson countered with a lengthy newspaper-hosted diatribe of his own this morning. “As far as I know I can’t be fired—that wouldn’t be cool,” Wilson wrote. “The negativity surrounding all the comments bummed me out. What’s confusing is that by Mike not wanting or letting Al, David and me tour with the band, it sort of feels like we’re being fired.” READ FULL STORY

George Michael cancels tour dates to seek treatment for anxiety

The singer said on his website he had hoped making music and performing would be enough to work through it but that he underestimated how hard his recovery would be. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber has a license to ill, throws up on stage

And remarkably, he didn’t even have to stop singing!

While performing “Out of Town Girl” during the opening night of his much-anticipated Believe tour in Glendale, Ariz., Justin Bieber turned his back on the crowd, hunched over, and barfed on stage.

Though Bieber quickly trotted away following the incident, according to reports, he returned a short while later and asked the crowd, “Will you love me even though I’m throwing up on stage?” (I’m going to venture a guess and say, yes, Justin, they will.)

“Getting better for tomorrow’s show!!!” Bieber tweeted after the concert. “And …. Milk was a bad choice! Lol,” he added.

You know what was a good choice, though? That backing track! Not even a little bit of puke could stop that track from delivering Beiber’s smooth “vocals” to the crowd. Good job, backing track. You kept the words flowing out of Justin’s mouth, even as a whole lot of other stuff was flowing out, too.

Sarcasm aside, we do feel a little bit bad for Bieber. Getting sick is no fun — especially on a stage in front of 15,000 screaming fans. Watch the video (if you can stomach it) below: READ FULL STORY

Brian Wilson, other Beach Boys get fired from the Beach Boys

Summer is over, which means that the days are getting shorter, the weather is chillier, and the relationships between members of the Beach Boys are pretty much falling apart.

The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion tour is wrapping up in London this week, though “The Beach Boys” will continue to tour throughout the fall. The twist? Mike Love, who controls the rights to the group’s name, is sending home cornerstone member Brian Wilson, along with fellow Boys Al Jardine and David Marks.

Love will be touring as the Beach Boys with Bruce Johnson and a back-up band that may or may not include Uncle Jesse.

“I’m disappointed and can’t understand why he doesn’t want to tour with Al, David and me,” Wilson told CNN. “We are out there having so much fun. After all, we are the real Beach Boys.”

The announcement came just after the group celebrated the opening of an exhibit dedicated to their five decade career at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.

Madonna: 'For better or for worse, we have a black Muslim in the White House' -- VIDEO

Does Madonna actually think Barack Obama, a practicing Christian, is secretly Muslim? Or does she just enjoy poking fun at those who do? Regardless, she’s on the president’s side — though Obama’s campaign might not want her to be.

At a concert in Washington, D.C. last night, Madonna refrained from taking swipes at Elton John or Lady Gaga. Instead, she took a cue from her politically-charged surroundings, pausing at one point to drink some water and muse about the sorry state of our government. After name-checking Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. — “They killed him, as they do,” she said about both men — Madge got a little more optimistic: “It is so incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House,” she said enthusiastically as the crowd cheered. “Those fine human beings did not die for nothing!”

That would have been the perfect time to stop talking. Instead, Madonna elected to say this: “So y’all better vote for f–ing Obama, okay? For better or for worse, all right, we have a black Muslim in the White House, okay? Now that is some sh–. That’s some amazing sh–. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, okay? So support the man, goddamnit!”

Er… yeah. Again, it’s tough to tell whether Madonna meant the “black Muslim” thing to be sarcastic — but either way, her comments are pushing our love over the borderline. Check out a video of Madonna’s speech (including some NSFW language) after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Nas and Lauryn Hill announce 'Life Is Good/Black Rage' team-up tour

Good news, fans of Nastradamus and The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill: The biggest tour of 1999 has finally arrived!

In all seriousness, October 6 marks the kick-off of an historic trek. The “Life Is Good/Black Rage” tour features co-headliners Nas (he of the recently-released tenth solo album Life is Good) and Lauryn Hill (she of the forthcoming single “Black Rage,” multiple horror stories in the new Wyclef memoir, and quite a big tax bill).

Nas kicks the tour off by himself but will be joined by Hill for 10 shows, starting with a stop in Dallas on October 29. The whole thing ends on December 31 with a Nas solo show on New Year’s Even at New York’s legendary Radio City Music Hall.

Of course, perhaps the bigger story here is the fact that Hill is promising a new single. READ FULL STORY
