Garcetti won the election in May; and Sunday night, Moby was back onstage supporting Garcetti, this time playing an acoustic version of "We Are All Made of Stars" — with four back-up singers — on the steps of L.A. City Hall at the new mayor's inauguration.Read More »from Moby Helps Inaugurate L.A.’s New Mayor, Announces New Album Details

Photo: Frazer HarrisonFour days after the official Motörhead Facebook page posted, "Despite rumors to the contrary, Lemmy is alive, breathing, talking, f--king, drinking, eating, reading and will be back to playing shows shortly," the band has cancelled the rest of its European tour, leading to the notion that maybe frontman Lemmy Kilmister won't be back on his feet as quickly as he had hoped.
In an interview that ran in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Motörhead drummer Mikkey Dee revealed that a little over a week ago Kilmister suffered a "nasty" fall and landed on his hip. The injury turned into a painful hematoma, a condition where blood collects outside of the blood vessels, forming a major bruise.Read More »from Motörhead Cancels Entire European Tour While Frontman Recovers From Health Scare

Photo: Mark DavisMariah Carey looked as beautiful as ever performing "#Beautiful" with Miguel and Young Jeezy Sunday night at the BET Awards in Los Angeles, but once again viewers are questioning if she was singing live or lip-synching.
The latest accusations come just a bit more than a month after her reps denied lip-synched a medley of hits on the finale of "American Idol."
We reached out to Mariah's reps at PMK and they didn't have any immediate comment on the controversy.
Prior to her performance, Nick Cannon told E! News that Mariah keeps it real during her performances and it's "all her." He added, "My wife is a perfectionist and clearly because she's done it right all her life. She actually puts a lot of work into these performances."Read More »from Mariah is ‘#Beautiful’ at the BET Awards, But Was She Live?

Photo: Ian GavanPlenty of people get excited about seeing the Rolling Stones, but few get as excited as a woman at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night. Heidi Wesson got so worked up that she went into labor two weeks early during the veteran rockers' headlining set at the massive British music festival.
As a result, she had to miss the end of the Stones' set and was taken to the Glastonbury medical center, where she gave birth to a baby girl at 3:00am Sunday morning, reports NME. A Glastonbury spokesperson confirmed the birth and said it wasn't the first time a baby has been welcomed into the world during the festival: "We'd like to send our congratulations to the family. We look forward to welcoming them back in future years. We've had babies born here that are now grown-ups. They still come every year. That's a beautiful thing."Read More »from Woman Gives Birth During Rolling Stones’ Set at Glastonbury Festival

Charlie Wilson & Justin Timberlake [photo: Jerod Harris/WireImage]The 2013 BET Awards took place Sunday, June 30, featuring a slew of performances by urban-music A-listers like Mariah Carey, Robin Thicke, 2 Chainz, and Chris Brown (but none by Drake, who led the nominations with 12, and won the top award of the night, yet didn't bother to show up).

Pixies' Black Francis (Photo: George Pimentel)It's a bittersweet day for Pixies fans around the world. The band just released their first music in nearly a decade, which is cause for celebration indeed.
The bad news is, original bassist and backing vocalist Kim Deal recently announced her departure from the iconic alternative rock band, and the new tune, "Bagboy," doesn't feature her in the lineup.
The band's publicist confirmed that the song's backing vocals were sung by guitarist Joey Santiago and drummer David Lovering, and that Jeremy Dubs plays bass on the track.
Despite Deal's absence, it's a strong song that harkens back to the band's glory days in the late '80s, replete with frontman Black Francis' trademark surrealist lyrics and Santiago's screeching guitars. Francis speak-sings most of the lyrics, chanting variations on "Cover your breath/polish your speech!" during the nearly 5-minute-long tune.Read More »from Pixies’ First New Track in 9 Years: What Do You Think?
