Maroon 5, Taylor Swift Attacked in Interviews by British Rocker Noel Gallagher

Vincent Perini/222 Recordings/Interscope RecordsNoel Gallagher, formerly of British superstar rockers Oasis, has been randomly attacking pop stars in a variety of interviews lately...and his latest targets are Maroon 5 and Taylor Swift.

Noel, who earlier this year went after Ed Sheeran, saying, "I can’t live in a world where Ed Sheeran sells out Wembley stadium,” disses Adam Levine and crew in a new interview with Vogue magazine. 

"As long as the music’s good, nobody cares about what you f**ing wear," says Gallagher, as part of a discourse on music and fashion. "If your songs are OK, then your songs will seem better if you look good -- like those f**wits from Maroon 5. The tattoos take your mind off the fact that they’re s**t. OK?" 

Later on in the interview, Gallagher gets another dig in: he says, "Stagecraft is beneath me. That guy from Maroon 5 -- he needs stagecraft."

As for Taylor, he attacks her in an interview with Rolling Stone.  When the magazine says that many have praised her songwriting skills, Gallagher scoffs, "Who says that? Her parents?"  When the Rolling Stone writer responds, "Lots of people," Gallagher says, "Who's 'people?' Name these people. You're f**ing lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you f**king know it."

Also in the Rolling Stone interview, Gallagher also puts down One Direction.  He calls them "lovely lads," but adds, "I have difficulties with people who don't write their own songs, who've got a team of songwriters who work for your record label." 

But when the interviewer points out that One Direction actually does co-write many of their own songs, and adds that may of the biggest and most legendary Motown stars had a team of writers at their record label providing them with material, Gallagher doesn't buy it.

"If you're trying to insinuate that what's going on now is akin to what was going on at Motown -- what, were you out late eating magic mushrooms?" he says. "Not equivalent. Not in the slightest."

Gallagher currently has a solo career.  With Oasis in the '90s, he scored hits like "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova."

Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" Soothes Crying Baby

ABC/Lou RoccoYou can’t deny Taylor Swift has widespread appeal. Her songs have the power to soothe even the crankiest babies.

The singer posted a video to Twitter Monday of a 6-month-old baby named Rosie who only stops crying when Taylor’s song “Blank Space” is playing. Taylor wrote in response to the YouTube video: “THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.”

It's good to know Taylor has a way with babies. She was just named godmother to her pal Jamie King’s yet-to-be-born second child. This trick might come in handy if she babysits!

 

THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. http://t.co/4bNzbBdcsX

Latest Bieber Roast Promo Spoofs Justin's Calvin Klein Ad

Courtesy of Comedy CentralThe latest promo for the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber was released, and it spoofs Justin’s Calvin Klein ad.

In the clip, a shirtless Justin plays the drums and poses, just like in his real Calvin ad -- but this time, Roastmaster General Jeff Ross plays the role of the female model. Jeff, wearing a long blonde wig and a shirt that exposes his less-than-toned tummy, proceeds to make Justin very uncomfortable.

“Who is this guy?” Justin finally asks. “Hey man, I’m your worst nightmare,” Jeff responds.

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs March 30. Comedian Kevin Hart will serve as host.

Twerking Fan Asks Miley Cyrus to Prom

ABC/Richard HarbaughYou don’t just ask Miley Cyrus to prom. You twerk-ask her.

High school student Andrew Cain from New Brunswick, Canada made a YouTube video asking Miley to be his prom date. In the clip posted Monday, he gets some of his pals to vouch for him and further makes his case by demonstrating his twerking skills and showing off his Miley shrine. He ends the video by getting down on one knee, bouquet of roses in hand, and officially asking the pop star to the prom.

Miley’s been an in-demand prom date for years. Last year, Phoenix teen Matt Peterson tried to get Miley to be his date. She declined, but invited him to the Arizona stop on her tour. He attended the concert and she serenaded him on stage. Not a bad deal. Let’s hope Andrew has similar luck!

Carly Rae Jepsen Talks New Single "I Really Like You," Tom Hanks Video Cameo

Matthew WelchThere's no "maybe" about it: Carly Rae Jepsen is back, with a brand new, super-catchy single, "I Really Like You."  She debuted the tune on ABC's Good Morning America on Monday, and she'll perform it again on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 5.  But why was it the perfect song to launch her return to the spotlight? "I liked the joy in it," Carly tells ABC Radio.

The song, with its repetitive chorus, captures that special moment when "like" it just about to become "love."  "I think everyone has been in that place where it’s...you’re not quite ready to call it love, but it’s so much more than like," Carly says. "And you really, really, really like them." 

"There are six 'reallys' [in the chorus],'” she laughs. "'I really like' you times six is one more before love, I figure. Seven gets a little overkill. Six [is] just, just [the] tipping point!"

"It sort of chose itself," Carly says, explaining why it's her first single. "It’s sort of one of those things: you go into the studio, you write handfuls of music and you just kind of come out and show everyone, show friends, show family, show label mates. And this song really raised its hand."

She adds, "It was that song that people could sing right away back to you, and I think coming from such a big break, we wanted to come back with something strong. And I liked the joy in it. I think that that was sort of a good start too." 

"I Really Like You" has a very retro-'80s sound, and Carly says that was sort of her blueprint when it comes to her upcoming album.  "The whole heart and soul of the album is very throwback with, like, a new twist to it," she explains.

Carly co-wrote "I Really Like You" with Peter Svensson from '90s alt-pop band The Cardigans, best known for their super-catchy hit "Lovefool."  Some of her other collaborators on the new album -- with whom she worked in New York City -- include Jack Antonoff of fun.; Canadian pop duo Tegan & Sara; Greg Kurstin, who's worked with Kelly Clarkson, Pink and Sia; and super-producer Max Martin.

"I think the rest of the record will be more of a surprise," she tells ABC Radio. "I think this particular song is a bridge to that and I think that having time in New York was really the reason behind that sort of change in feel and that decision to go pure '80s and to kind of experiment."

The video for "I Really Like You" will premiere in the coming days, and it features a special guest star: Tom Hanks.  Carly explains what the Oscar-winning actor is doing in the clip.

"It’s sort of the day in the life of Tom Hanks. It’s sort of a video inside of a video," she tells ABC Radio. "He’s on his way to my music video -- to participate and just be awesome -- and he just sort of wakes up singing the song. And he’s getting ready for it, and practicing his dance moves and gargling…I don’t know, all the usual, amazing little day-to-day things that make him so awesome!"

Kelly Clarkson's Already Designed Baby-Friendly Bus for Summer Tour

RCA RecordsKelly Clarkson's new album Piece by Piece arrives today, and fans will be happy to hear that she'll be following that up with a world tour.  Her eight-month-old daughter River is coming along with her, of course -- in a custom-designed, kid-friendly tour bus.

Speaking to Billboard, Kelly says, "I already designed my bus -- my bus is already ready, and we have a whole crib on there, a whole kids section for our other two kids. So we're ready for the tour, which is starting this summer, and then we go to the rest of the world after America."  Kelly's "other two kids" are a boy and a girl from her husband Brandon Blackstock's first marriage.

She adds, "I don't think being a mom needs to slow you down. If anything, it just makes you more productive."

Kelly does reveal, though, that she has the help of an "amazing" nanny named Allie, who, she says, "makes it possible for me to be a working mom that gets to stay involved in my child's life."

Kelly appears on ABC's Good Morning America on Tuesday.

NFL Made Katy Perry Nix Snoop Dogg from Super Bowl Due to Iggy Azalea Feud

Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesWhen Katy Perry headlined the Super Bowl last month, her guests included Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott.  But it turns out Katy wanted to bring another guest on as well: Snoop Dogg.  However, the NFL nixed the idea, she claims, because of the "hate" he'd allegedly bring to the party

Speaking to Elle magazine for its March issue, Katy claims that the NFL said she couldn't have Snoop -- her collaborator on her hit "California Gurls" -- on stage with her because of what she calls the "Iggy Azalea thing."  Katy is referring to the feud that Snoop and Iggy had last fall, where he dissed her appearance on Instagram and then posted an obscenity-filled video further insulting and threatening her.  He later apologized.

"Not that that was it -- that was just the tipping point," Katy adds. "You can't have that kind of hate at the Super Bowl. They already have enough female-hate problems; they don't need any more."

It's worth noting that Katy and Iggy are friends; she co-wrote Iggy's hit "Black Widow" in fact.

In other Katy Perry post-Super Bowl news, she's debuted some merchandise that fans will definitely want to sink their teeth into.  "YOU CAN NOW BE A PROPER #LEFTSHARK WITH THIS OFFICIAL, GLORIOUS #LEFTSHARK ONESIE," Katy tweeted.  

She included a link to her online store, where for the low, low price of $129.99 you can now purchase a onesie that will let you look just like Katy's goofy costumed dance partner at her Super Bowl halftime show.  The garment says "Katy Perry" across the back, and boasts an "all-over photographic print" made "using a special sublimation technique to provide a vivid graphic image."

"The Voice" Recap: 52-Year-Old Former Chef Becomes This Season’s Oldest Contestant

Trae Patton/NBCThe blind auditions continued on NBC's The Voice Tuesday night. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams once again sat in their rotating chairs as they listened to more singers and continued to build their teams.

Tuesday’s show included the competition’s oldest contestant so far this season, a 52-year-old former executive chef at the famed Improv comedy club in Los Angeles.

At the conclusion of Tuesday's blind auditions, Blake added three more artists to his team, for a total of seven. Pharrell added three more, bringing his total to eight. Christina tacked on two more artists, bringing the total number of members on her team to seven. Adam picked up five more artists, for a total of eight.

In a lighthearted moment, Adam pretended to deliver a blind audition by singing Elton John's "Tiny Dancer." He got all three coaches to turn their chairs around. He selected Christina.  Blake joked that the only reason he turned his chair around was because he "wanted to see what the freak looked like."

Here are the highlights of Tuesday's blind auditions:

Kentucky native, Kelsie May, a 15-year-old with a throwback sound, noted that she lost one of her friends to cancer. She credits watching his brave battle as her inspiration to pursue her dream of being a country singer. She got Blake, Pharrell and Christina to turn their chairs with her version of Loretta Lynn’s “You’re Lookin’ at Country.” Christina had started singing at the age of seven and she used that experience to try and get the young singer. Pharrell called Kelsie special because she was already so clear on what direction she wanted to take with her music. Blake, predictably, dropped names of The Voice winners he’s coached to victory, including last year’s champ, Craig Wayne Boyd. Kelsie made the obvious choice and went with Blake.

Kimberly Nichole earned the nickname “The Rock Ballerina" for her custom-made tutus. After putting her singing career on the back burner to pursue a career in the fashion industry, she returned to music, landing a hosting gig at a trendy New York City club. She belted out Ike and Tina Turner’s “Nutbush City Limits" and convinced Blake and Pharrell to push their buttons. Pharrell said he felt her soul when she sang, adding her voice was “amazing.” Blake, at a loss for a strong pitch to counter Pharrell’s, noted he’s “not a soul singer,” but “has a soul,” and that he loved her. It wasn’t enough, as Pharrell nabbed Kimberly for his team.

Next up, was Fargo, North Dakota, native, Michael Leier, singing Pearl Jam’s version of the J. Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers’ classic, “Last Kiss.” Blake and Adam turned their chairs, leading to a “charm fest” starting with Adam, who noted that even though Leier was influenced by Pearl Jam’s lead singer Eddie Vedder, he added his own touch to the song. Blake answered by saying Levine’s pitch seemed to be more about Vedder than Michael. It was futile, as Michael picked Adam. Michael admitted later that before the audition, he was hoping to land on Adam’s team.

Travis Ewing is a professional one-man band from Lafayette, Louisiana. His love of music started in the seventh grade when a teacher helped him overcome his shyness and encouraged him to sing. The teacher then surprised Travis with a taped message to cheer him on. Travis sang Destiny Child’s “Say My Name” and immediately got Christina to turn her chair around. Blake and Pharrell eventually followed suit. Aguilera loved the “silkiness” and “texture” of Ewing’s voice, as well as his arrangement of the song, noting it was “outside the box.” Shelton fired back that he had a good track record coaching non-country artists. Pharrell told Travis that he would be a fan, as well as a mentor and would love a shot at “mixing it up.” Ewing chose Team Pharrell.

Sonic, 23, got a record deal when she was 14 years old, but it never panned out for the San Francisco native. She also revealed that she’s deaf in one ear, but refused to let that become a disability. Her version of Sam Smith’s “Money on My Mind” convinced Aguilera and Levine to push their buttons, even though both acknowledged that the performance “fell apart” somewhere in the middle. However, Adam noted that Sonic recovered quickly and hit some difficult notes. Christina applauded Sonic for taking on a “huge challenge” with the song. Sonic elected to join Christina’s team.

Taking the stage next was 18-year-old Jacob Rummell, who’s been singing his entire life. He’d love to pursue it as a career, but admits he “doesn’t know what [he’s] doing.” Learning from a coach, he adds, would be “an amazing opportunity.” Rummell tackled Bruno Mars’ “Count on Me” and got Levine and Shelton to turn their chairs around. Blake confessed he thought Jacob was a girl before he turned his chair, and added that that's what he likes about the show the most. Adam argued that he had more in common musically with Jacob and compared him to a young Michael Jackson. Rummell surprised all the judges by choosing Shelton.

Barry Minniefield, 52, was an executive chef at the Improv comedy club in Los Angeles who eventually opened up his own catering company called No Laughing Matter. Barry said he became chummy with some of the comedians at the club, and counts Jay Leno among his famous friends. Leno even sent Barry a taped message to wish him good luck. Barry eventually retired from cooking to pursue music. His version of Billy Paul’s “Me and Mrs. Jones” got Adam to turn his chair around at the last second. He joins Team Adam.

The final act of the night was Brooklyn, New York, native and current UCLA music student India Carney, who took on Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind.” She got all four coaches to turn their chairs around and received a standing ovation from all of them. An intense battle between the coaches began with Christina noting she needed to have the singer on her team because Carney is a “vocal beast.” Shelton said he fell in love with India’s voice and was a fan, as well as a potential coach. Pharrell begged Carney to join his team, and vowed to try and steal her away from whoever did wind up with her. Adam, noting that even though his team was nearly full, he had to push his button for her Carney, adding, she was “going to the end of this thing and I want to be on that train." India picked Christina.

The blind auditions on The Voice will continue Tuesday night at 8 p.m. Eastern time on NBC.

Kelly Clarkson and Jimmy Fallon Perform "History of Duets" During "Tonight Show" Appearance

Douglas Gorenstein/NBCKelly Clarkson visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Monday to plug her new album, Piece by Piece, but she ended up singing a lot more than just one song from the disc.

Fallon noted the recent report in which Clarkson reportedly told BBC Radio she had a problem getting other artists to perform duets with her. Clarkson later tweeted that she was joking.

Nonetheless, Fallon responded by telling the audience he'd love to do a duet with Kelly. She then joined him for a "History of Duets," in which the two performed a medley of the greatest duets of all time, including Sonny and Cher's "I Got You Babe," Elton John and Kiki Dee's "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," and Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' "Islands in the Stream."

Later in the show, Clarkson performed "Heartbeat Song," a track off her new album.

Lady Gaga Tells Taylor Swift: "Your Prince Charming Will Come!"

A.M.P.A.S.(r)/Michael YadaLooks like we may soon be able to add Lady Gaga to the long list of Taylor Swift's female besties. 

Taylor tweeted on Sunday, "Is it just me or is Lady Gaga, like, fully LIVING right now?!? She added the hashtag "#goals," perhaps to show her admiration for Gaga's hot streak, which includes an engagement to her boyfriend, a Grammy-winning album, a headline-grabbing Oscar performance, a part in American Horror Story and an upcoming tour with Tony Bennett.

A flattered Gaga responded, "wow you're a sweetheart! Life is friends, family, and love! We all see that in you, your prince charming will come!"

Taylor recently predicted in an interview that she believes she'll still be single at age 30, noting, "No one’s going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. Like, 'Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!' I don’t know what’s going to happen if I’m ever content in a relationship -- no idea how that’s going to work."

Another Vegas Wedding for Britney Spears? She Teases: "You Never Know"

Denise TruscelloCould Las Vegas wedding bells be in Britney Spears’ future? We know she’s done the Vegas quickie marriage before -- with pal Jason Alexander in 2004 -- but things are starting to get serious with her current boyfriend, Charlie Ebersol.

At a recent charity event, Extra’s special correspondent Pauly D asked the pop star if she might be heading down the aisle at a Sin City chapel soon. “You never know,” Britney teased.

She hasn’t been shy about proclaiming her love for Charlie. During a recent performance of her Vegas show Piece of Me, she wore the words "I love Charlie" on her vest. “I’m very blessed to have him as a part of my life, that’s very cool,” she told Extra.

Britney also discussed collaborating with Iggy Azalea on a yet-to-be-released new song. “I saw her song on TV and I was like a kid in a candy store, I was like, 'I love Iggy, I love that video, I want to work with her,'” she said. “And it was really weird, because a week after that her manager was like, ‘She’s a huge fan of yours.' I was like, 'Let’s do something together,' so it worked out.”

No word yet on when the song will be released.

Kelly Clarkson Says She Doesn't Care if Her Kids Are Gay

Jill Greenberg/RCA RecordsKelly Clarkson doesn’t care if her kids are gay or straight -- she just wants them to be happy. The singer, who has an 8-month-old daughter, River Rose, and two stepchildren from her husband’s previous marriage, tells PrideSource she doesn’t see sexual orientation as an issue.

“I just hope [River Rose] finds love,” she says. “It took me a while, man. And there was a lot of heartache throughout those years. You know, as long as she’s happy, I don’t care either way, and neither does my husband. And we have two other kids as well, and we don’t care either way for all of them.”

She adds that if one of her children did come out to her, she’d react with joy. “I’d be like, ‘Awesome! When do we meet him or her?’” she says. “Honestly, it's so funny, it doesn't even register in my world as different. I don't know why. But yeah, it doesn't. I'm glad it doesn't!”

Kelly, who has a large lesbian following, dubbed the Kezbos, also describes the first time she went to a gay bar at age 22. “I went with some of my friends and a couple of my gay friends, and they were like, ‘You’re gonna love this! But you’re gonna need to wear a hat,’” she says. “They played ‘Since U Been Gone,’ and it was so funny because nobody knew I was there. I had a blast!”

Even with her gay following, Kelly says, she doesn’t think of herself as a gay icon. In fact, the 32-year-old says it’s hard to think of herself as an icon in general. She does admit she has a bond with the gay community, though.

“I have a connection, but I don't look at it differently,” she says. “I don't ever look at a fan as a gay fan or a lesbian fan or a straight fan -- I don't ever look at that," she says. "Fans are fans, and no matter what our lives are like, no matter what path we're on, music is the one thing that connects us.”

Kelly's new album, Piece by Piece, arrives Tuesday.

A collection of exclusive new music videos from nine of the winning artists, including Ed Sheeran and Charli XCX, will be released on the YouTube Music Awards channel March 23. The videos will debut simultaneously at 10 a.m. PT.

YouTube has enlisted VICE to produce the videos and some A-List video auteurs to direct. You'll also have the chance to get in on the action: artists will take some lucky fans behind the scenes, and invite others to be a part of the videos.
