  • Ouch! Beyoncé Suffers Hair-In-Fan Mishap in Montreal

    Photo: Larry BusaccaIn a word: YEOW! Beyoncé suffered a (literally) hair-raising emergency on stage in Montreal Monday night, when her long locks somehow got caught in a stage fan — necessitating scissors to cut her free.

    The superstar was singing "Halo" at the time of the accident. Remarkably, she did not stop the performance; rather, she calmly sat down and continued with the tune as the stage crew attempted to free her.

    Thankfully, the fan did not appear to be running at the time — otherwise, we're sure she would have punctuated that song with a shriek! However, as anyone with long hair knows, it's never fun to get tangled up in this manner; and at the very least it's a bit on the embarrassing side.

    Well, the wait is over, and Scott got to beat Duchess Kate to share her happy news! Scott and husband Chris Tyrrell are the proud parents of a baby girl named Eisele Kaye. According to People, the little one was born Monday in Nashville.

    As expected, her parents are ecstatic. "She's here, and we are in HEAVEN!!!" tweeted Scott, calling her new arrival a "beautiful angel."

  • Billy Ray Cyrus and Wife Tish: Workin’ It Out Again

    Tish Cyrus/InstagramThey're separating...no, wait, they're not. Oh, wait--they are. Okay, they're not!

    Getting dizzy yet? After two separate filings of divorce papers over the past three years, Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife of 19 years, Tish, have decided to reconcile yet again.

    The couple originally called it quits back in 2010; however, Billy Ray put a halt on the proceedings in early 2011. He told the hosts of The View that he was committed to working on his marriage. "I've dropped the divorce," he said. "I want to put my family back together."

  • Exclusive! Hear Never-Released Version of Smashing Pumpkins Tune

    The Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan in 1996. (Photo: Jeff Kravitz)Does 1996 seem like a long, long time ago? It won't seem quite as far back in memory once alt-rock fans revisit this month's reissued and remastered version of the Smashing Pumpkins' box set The Aeroplane Flies High, which was originally released in '96.

    The set, which will hit the streets July 23, contains the original 33 songs as well as an ambitious expansion to 104 tracks, many of them never-before-heard or released demos, alternate versions, and live tracks. We've got one of those right here for you: An exclusive listen to "Lily (My One And Only)" recorded live in Washington DC. It's pure vintage; also captured in the mid-'90s.

  • Miley Cyrus: Short Hair Takes Her to New Lengths

    Photo: Ray TamarraEver wonder where Miley Cyrus gets her chutzpah these days?

    The pop singer has adopted a revealing new wardrobe of spandex, short shorts, and crop tops, was named No. 1 on Maxim's 2013 Hot 100 list, and … oh yeah, there's that cray "We Can't Stop" video. As it turns out, there's an easily identifiable line where all this boldness started.

    It's the moment Cyrus decided to chop her hair, of course. While she doesn't specifically say the haircut — which which took place almost a year ago, abruptly changing her long wavy locks into a punkish platinum pixie — is responsible for her recent string of brash headlines, she does admit it was a major game-changer.

  • Exclusive! First Listen to 311 Vocalist Nick Hexum’s New Solo Project

    Nick Hexum is a busy guy, to say the least. Not only will he be working on a new album with his band, 311 — as well as touring with them this summer--he's also poised to release his first-ever solo record this fall!

    The Nick Hexum Quintet (he's joined by a posse of amazingly talented musicians, including his own brother, Zack Hexum) will be releasing My Shadow Pages in October. It's a departure from 311's sound, combining a variety of different genres such as funk, pop, jazz and classic rock— and, so you can hear for yourselves, we've got the first listen to "Blame The Sky" from the upcoming set.

    "I wrote this song with my brother, Zack," Hexum explains of the track. "We were initially throwing out lines to inspire each other with no particular theme in mind. As we went on, a thread came together. It's about seizing the day. Follow your dreams and believe in yourself. And if you need a reason why — blame the sky!

  • Internet Campaign Helps ‘Fat Old Guy’ in Quest to Achieve Taylor Swift Dream

    Photo: George PimentelTaylor Swift: She's not just for teeny boppers! Lest anyone ever doubted the depth and breadth of the superstar's fanbase, here's a little tale that will illustrate just how diverse it is. When a Boston radio station recently started a contest to find "Taylor Swift's No. 1 fan" — the winner will get tickets to her show, plus a personal meet-and-greet — an unlikely candidate put forth an earnest plea.

    When asked to explain (in 137 characters or less) why he should win the prize, one Charles Z. answered, "I'm a 39 year old man and I love Taylor so much and don't care that both adults and children mock me for it. But I feel 22 if that helps."

  • Mindy McCready’s Older Son Returned to His Father

    McKnight and son Zander/FacebookIt has been five months since troubled country star Mindy McCready took her own life, in the wake of her boyfriend's death just weeks earlier. One question that has remained on fans' minds is the fate of her two young sons, who were taken into state care following her death. However, in the case of her older son, 7-year-old Zander, it appears there is finally a resolution: He's apparently been returned to his father, musician Billy McKnight.

    According to a post on McKnight's Facebook account, Zander officially arrived at his dad's Tampa-area home on Sunday. "Praise God today along with a lot of support and love from family and friends I am finally bringing my son home for good," McKnight wrote. "I want to thank all of you for the prayers that's been sent to me. I cannot express with words the weight that has been lifted off my shoulders."
