Nicki Minaj Reportedly Wins Wig Lawsuit


ABC/Fred LeeA hairy situation has come to an end for Nicki Minaj.  The rapper just won a lawsuit filed against her by her former hairstylist, Terrence Davidson, reports GossipCop.com.  He alleged that Minaj stole his wig designs, and that it ultimately cost him millions.

Davidson claimed in court papers he provided the wigs that helped get Minaj discovered in 2010 and that they had discussed working together in the future in the wig business.  He alleged that Minaj didn’t follow through on their planned business venture, and he now sells his wig designs online without her assistance.

The judge ruled for Minaj, stating in her decision that everyone has the right to make colored wigs.  In addition, the judge ruled that Minaj and Davidson never had a firm plan in place to go into business together.

Davidson was asking for at least $30 million in damages.

Watch Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea Show Off Their Assets in New "Booty" Video


Capitol RecordsJennifer Lopez has released the music video for her single, "Booty," and the steamy clip might even leave Nicki Minaj blushing.

The video delivers exactly what the title implies, with Lopez, 45, showing off her famous booty. As an added bonus, she's joined by Iggy Azalea, who adds a verse and shakes it alongside J-Lo in some of the sexier scenes.

It's directed by Hype Williams, who has also created videos for Minaj, Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera, among others.

"Booty" is from Lopez's album A.K.A. However, the album version features a verse from Pitbull instead of Azalea.

Lady Gaga Says She'll Release "One Jazz Album a Year...Forever"


Streamline/Interscope/Columbia RecordsLady Gaga's album of jazz duets with Tony Bennett, Cheek to Cheek, comes out next Tuesday, and if Gaga has anything to say about it, it won't be the last jazz album of her career.  In fact, she says she'd like to keep releasing them "forever."

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Gaga says her infatuation with jazz isn't a passing phase: She's been a fan of the genre for years, and now that she's started recording it, she's not going to stop.  "I'm planning to release one jazz album a year.  I think I will continue to do that forever," she tells the publication.  "I enjoy it so much.  I want to spread it to all of my fans."

Gaga credits the collaboration with Bennett for pulling her out of a particularly dark place she was in at the time.  Explaining why she was disillusioned, she says, "The pop industry is like a tabloid now.  There's just no integrity, and it's extremely controlled and manufactured. There's a lot of farce and not a lot of authenticity.  So for me, singing [these songs] was freedom."

She adds, "There are a lot of sharks in the pop-music industry.  I was kind of damaged and faced all these challenges behind the scenes with people betraying me, and things like that.  I became dissatisfied with the business.  I'm so much more satisfied with music now.  I said to myself, 'I don't need to be a commercial singer anymore. I can just sing at a bar downtown and I'd be so much happier.'"

Of course, "singing in a bar downtown" isn't going to make Gaga the millions she's been raking in for the past few years, but she says she doesn't really care anymore.

"Paying the bills is overrated," she tells the Wall Street Journal.  "At the end of the day, the bills can't be a metaphor for your heart.  I've made a lot of money doing what I do.  I feel very blessed for all of the wonders.  But there's no wonder, no money, no luxury, no jewel or diamond more sparkling than how I feel when I'm feeling impassioned and in the moment onstage singing with Tony."

Cheek to Cheek is due September 23.

Maroon 5 Are the "Luckiest Motherf***ers on the Planet," but May Take a Hiatus


Vincent Perini/222 Recordings/Interscope RecordsMaroon 5's fifth album, V, debuted on top of the charts, and the band is readying a world tour for next year.  But lead singer Adam Levine says the time may be coming where the band may drop out of sight for a while.

Speaking to Britain's Official Charts Company, Adam says, "Five albums in, I think it’s important to take stock for a while. To have the success we’ve had, we’re the luckiest motherf**kers on the planet!  We’re flirting with the idea of taking a small amount of time off."

"We’ve always been thinking about the next album and tour for ten years," Adam continues. "We’re not going anywhere and we’re not going to disband, but after this album we’ll have a conversation and think about what the next move is.”

When the interviewer suggests that in the interim, the band -- whose debut album, Songs About Jane, came out 12 years ago -- should release a greatest hits album, Adam says, "It’s in the works actually. Watch this space!”

In the meantime, there'll be no shortage of Maroon 5 anywhere in the upcoming months, nor of Adam, who'll be starring on the new season of The Voice starting Monday.

Will Miley Cyrus Be Punished for Desecrating the Mexican Flag?


Photo by: Olivia MaloneMiley Cyrus' onstage antics have once again gotten her into trouble...this time in another country.

While performing in Mexico this week, Miley twerked onstage wearing a huge prosthetic butt; at the same time, one of her backup dancers spanked the fake butt with the Mexican flag.  Now, at least one Mexican lawmaker is calling for the singer to be punished, reports E! Online.

According to E!, Francisco Trevino, a local official in Monterrey, Mexico, has posted a video on Facebook that calls for the Mexican government -- in particular the Secretary of the Interior -- to prosecute Miley for her actions.  Disrespecting the Mexican flag is punishable by up to $1,200 or 36 hours in jail, according to E!.

So far, Miley hasn't commented on the controversy.  Her Bangerz tour plays Mexico City on Friday.

Taylor Swift and Lorde Bond Over...Paper Dolls?


MTV/MTV1415/Getty Images for MTVDespite being a global pop superstar, Taylor Swift enjoys simple things like making cookies, needlepoint and other homemade crafts.  Now, it appears as though Lorde has caught the bug from her pal Taylor.

On Thursday evening, Lorde tweeted, "i just bought some paper doll books on a whim and now i don't want to do anything but cut out dresses/parasols/hats."  She then posted several photos of her purchase, saying the dolls look "extremely epic." 

Taylor posted a screenshot of the paper doll tweet and replied, "I don't mean to be all 'me, me, me' but I'm pretty sure this is my fault."

Lorde agreed, tweeting back, "gguuuuiiiillltttyyy. only thing left now is baking!"  She then posted a photo of her favorite paper doll, which was wearing a Victorian-era gown and hat, and wrote to Taylor, "This one's my favourite, can you tell?"

Taylor and Lorde might actually get to see each other this weekend and play paper dolls in person, since they're both heading to Las Vegas to perform at a huge all-star music festival.

Will Adam Lambert Be the New "American Idol" Mentor?


Credit: Neal PrestonAdam Lambert sat in as a judge for American Idol auditions in New York City on Wednesday, filling in for Keith Urban, who had to return to Australia when his father-in-law died suddenly. Whether or not Adam would like to make his affiliation with the show more permanent remains to be seen.

TVLine.com notes that last year's official "mentor," Randy Jackson, has yet to be announced as returning for the show's next season.  So, would Adam himself want that job, since he did a good job as a guest "boot camp" mentor last year? The answer is --  maybe.

The season eight runner-up tells TV Line, "I don't know...I have a lot going on.  I’m working on an album. We might go back out on the road with Queen -- so, I don’t know yet. There’s a lot happening.  Time is the issue."

Even so, Adam says he likes the idea in theory. "I feel like [mentoring and guest judging] is a way to give back," he explains. "I know it sounds corny, but I want to help the contestants with the light bulb that could go off.”

The 14th season of American Idol begins in January.

Donate 10 Grand to Miley's Pet Charity, and She'll Design a Tattoo for You


Peter Kramer/NBCLast month, Miley Cyrus launched a Prizeo campaign to raise money for My Friend's Place, a resource for homeless young people in L.A.  There are days left in the fundraising campaign, and there are now some pretty insane prizes available if you've got the cash.

The more you donate to the campaign, the more chances you get to win the grand prize, which is a VIP trip for two to Miley's concert in Brazil on September 28.  But in addition, the more you donate, the more awesome goodies you'll get for your trouble.  If you donate $10,000, for example, Miley herself will custom-design a tattoo for you.  No word on whether or not you get to veto the tattoo, so be ready for the possibility of something with pot leaves and profanity on it.

If you'd rather not have that as your prize, for 10 grand, you can also choose to receive a signed piece of original My Friend's Place artwork by Miley.  There are two designs to choose from.

If you don't have that much cash, a $5,000 donation will get you a personal voicemail message recorded for you by Miley.

The campaign ends on September 21.  Visit Prizeo.com to donate.

Nick Lachey to Release Album of Movie Soundtrack Songs


Courtesy: VH1Nick Lachey is on TV so often, it's sometimes hard to forget that he's a singer.  He's about to remind us, though, with a new album on November 11.

As People reports, Nick's fourth solo album will be called Soundtrack of My Life: an apt title, considering it's made up of memorable songs from movie soundtracks.  He tells People, "I knew I wanted to do a cover album but wanted to go for a different concept. Soundtracks just felt like a cool angle on doing a cover record."

Nick adds, "The marriage of music and film is one that has been talked about so much over the years, and the way music affects you when you're watching a film is so impactful."

Among the songs Nick tackles: "Falling Slowly," from the film Once, which Nick says was his and his wife Vanessa's "theme song" at one point; and "What a Wonderful World," from Good Morning Vietnam. "They all have a story behind them and have a special meaning for me," Nick says of the disc's songs.

Nick's plenty busy with non-music stuff as well.  He and Vanessa are expecting their second child, a girl, in January. He'll also return as host of VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live on September 29, and his A&E series, tentatively called Lachey's Bar, will premiere next year.

Ariana Grande Laughs Off Rumors that She Hates Her Fans; "Break Free" Goes Platinum


Republic RecordsAfter being dogged by rumors that she's a demanding, impossible-to-deal-with diva, Ariana Grande is now being accused of -- gasp -- actively hating her fans.  But the singer is laughing off that story, saying she's all about love.

The New York Daily News claimed that during a radio station visit this past summer, Ariana signed autographs for fans and was all smiles, but then, when she got in an elevator and the doors shut, she said, "I hope they all f**king die."  Ariana is now dismissing this story in a series of tweets.

"man some of these rumors that have been coming out about me lately actually have me laughing out loud....  really can't take em seriously," she writes. adding, "sooner or later ppl will realize that what u put out is what u get back. the lies/hate etc.  Give love & I promise life will treat u better."

"I've said this before but I promise it's true," she continues. "What u focus on expands. what u put out, u get back. live for love & your life will be pretty." 

Ariana goes on, "love love love love love love love. k? n here's some more love for u. even those who are unkind. here's some love for u too. u need it most." She then quoted the musical Rent, tweeting, "Share love. give luv. spread luv. measure ur life in luv," and adding, "I quoted Rent & I'm not apologizing."

Later on, Ariana announced that her latest hit "Break Free" had gone platinum, and thanked her fans profusely. She also announced that she's added a second concert date at New York's Madison Square Garden -- it'll be on March 21.

Aloe Blacc Talks Movie Plans, Possible Bruno Mars Collaboration


ABC/Adam TaylorThis past summer, "Wake Me Up" singer Aloe Blacc made his acting debut in Get On Up, the movie biography of the late Godfather of Soul, James Brown.  In addition to his music career, he now says he'd like to pursue a career in the movie business as well -- both in front of the camera and behind it.

"I really would love to," he tells ABC News Radio of his acting aspirations. "I'm definitely taking scripts in, I'm checking to see what kinda roles I think will fit...where I wanna go in my career as an actor, as a storyteller. But, I feel like I may be writing the story pretty soon. I have some ideas for films."

Aloe, speaking backstage at Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars, wouldn't reveal what those ideas are, but he was happy to talk about the fact that he's currently working on new music, which he says he'd like to release in 2015.  So, is there a chance that he'll collaborate on some new songs with Bruno Mars, since the two toured together all this past summer? 

"Aww, man, I wish. I hope so!" laughs Aloe. "I haven't talked to him since tour, we've both been running around, I've been all over the world since, and he's continuing to finish his tour. It would be great to get in the studio with a guy like Bruno Mars, he's the real deal, y'know: singer, songwriter, entertainer."  

Next month, Aloe heads to Australia and New Zealand for more touring.

Clean Bandit Says US Success Is a "Massive Surprise"


Asylum UK/Big Beat/Atlantic RecordsClean Bandit -- a British quartet that mixes dance music and classical music -- is experiencing huge success in the U.S. charts with their hit "Rather Be."  They've just kicked off a headline tour of North America, and say they're shocked by how popular they seem to be on this side of the pond.

"Well it's a massive surprise that the shows sold out," said Bandit cellist Grace Chatto backstage at ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday.  "Because we didn't know whether anyone would really come or if anyone would know the songs if they did come."  The band played New York City on Tuesday, and she tells ABC News Radio, "Yeah, it was completely sold out, and it was such a kind of electric atmosphere. It was a very nice surprise."

The crowd reaction when the group performs "Rather Be" live has also thrown them for a loop. "It's so crazy," Grace tells ABC News Radio. "It's really exciting when it starts.  Everyone just kind of starts screaming."  And Neil Amin-Smith, who plays violin in the group, adds, laughing, "Hundreds of iPhones get pulled out!"

The lead vocals on "Rather Be" are provided by a woman named Jess Glynne, who's not actually in Clean Bandit.  In fact, none of the singers who are featured on the band's debut album New Eyes are members of the group: the four actual members recruit vocalists on a case-by-case basis for each song, including "Rather Be."

"We actually had the song like kind of finished a long time before we met Jess," Neil says, explaining how the band got her to sing on their hit.  "And we played it at a lot of festivals in the U.K. last summer, kind of trying it out, and it just seemed audiences were reacting to it in a way we never really experienced before, but it took quite a while to find the right vocalist for it."

After hearing Jess sing on a track called "My Love," which was a big hit in the U.K., they realized that she was the perfect fit for "Rather Be."  "She recorded it and took it to another level," says Neil.

Of course, Jess can't go on tour with Clean Bandit, and neither can any of the other singers who are featured on Clean Bandit's album.  But that doesn't mean that if you go to see them live, all you'll see is two people playing violin and cello.

"We have a lot of people onstage," explains Grace. "We have a live violin, live cello, live drums played on this kind of massive electronic kit with some acoustic elements built in. And keys, and an electronic saxophone, and two amazing singers called Elisabeth Troy and Florence Rawlings, who are very versatile and sing all of the songs on the album -- even though on the album we've recorded twelve different vocalists."

When Clean Bandit wrap up their North American tour in early October, they'll head back home to the U.K. for a string of dates there.  While "Rather Be" is really just getting started in the U.S., in the U.K., it was the fastest-selling single of the year, and spent four weeks at #1.

"It really broke us in the U.K. as well because we've been working together as a band for quite a few years, but we never really thought of ourselves as pop musicians and it's all been so sudden," says Grace. "And it's kind of crazy that it's going so well in America [too]."

Taylor Swift's a Little Bit Excited About The Change of Seasons


ABC/ Lorenzo BevilaquaTaylor Swift recently got a new Tumblr account, and after asking her fans to help her figure out how to use it, she's been going full-on with her postings.  Her latest is an ode to the fact that summer is over and fall is upon us.  It turns out that Taylor really, really likes fall.  Maybe a little bit too much.

"There’s nothing like just apple picking in the Fall, the first cold New York weather hitting you, the fashion sense steaming up, and the fresh apple cider and donuts," she wrote in her posting. "I LOVE THE FALL."

Then, in an epic sentence, she gushes:

"And hats and scarves and knee socks and wearing tights for the first time in months and when the mornings are all chilly and you can see your breath and draw little pictures on foggy windows and plaid stuff and ANKLE BOOTS and not caring when people make fun of pumpkin flavored stuff cause you LOVE IT and are happy it’s all the rage and people who dress their dogs in costumes on Halloween and fires in fireplaces and maroon/hunter green/mustard yellow color combos and baking your first fall batch of cookies but you put too much cinnamon in it because you’re TOO EXCITED BECAUSE IT’S FALL."

Taylor, People magazine's Best Dressed woman of 2014, showed off her fall style this week by hitting the town in knee socks, a plaid skirt, a hunter green bag and her favorite accessory: her new cat, Olivia Benson.

Iggy Azalea Suing Ex Who Claimed He Co-Stars in Her Sex Tape


Grand Hustle/Def Jam RecordingsThe ongoing story about whether or not Iggy Azalea actually made a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend just got a whole lot more complicated.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Iggy has now filed suit against her ex Maurice Williams, who raps under the name Jefe Wine, accusing him not of releasing a sex tape, but of releasing her early music, and forging a contract he claims gives him the right to do so. 

The publication reports that, according to the complaint, Iggy met Williams in 2008 in Houston, and they began a relationship, even though, unbeknownst to Iggy, he was married with children. 

Williams then followed Iggy to Atlanta when she moved there in 2009, the complaint continues.  He moved into her house and then "downloaded the entire contents of Azalea's personal computer," including her unreleased music.  Then this past July, a company with which Williams was involved announced that it was releasing an EP by Iggy called Inizio, and songs from it started popping up on digital-service providers. 

Iggy says that EP contains the music that Williams stole from her, and constitutes a violation of her copyright, trademark, name and likeness.  She sent out cease-and-desist letters, and the DSPs removed the songs.  But then, as part of its coverage of the sex tape story, TMZ quoted Williams as saying that he had an agreement with Iggy that gave him the exclusive rights to her music and "visual images" of her.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Iggy's complaint maintains that this so-called agreement is a forgery.  What happened, according to her complaint, is that when the couple was living in Atlanta, Williams introduced Iggy to a guy named Kareem Chapman.  She signed an artist-management agreement with Chapman's company, and Williams took her copy of it and illegally altered it to turn it into a "music recording and composition agreement."

If what Iggy says is true, Williams has no rights to her music.  That's why she's suing him for copyright violation and wants a declaration that he has no right to use her name or her likeness.  The complaint doesn't mention a sex tape, but it does refer to the defendants coming out with "promotional videos featuring an impersonator of Azalea."

Avril and Chad Not Splitting Up, Despite Reports


Sara De Boer/STARTRAKS PHOTO via ABCDon't believe the rumors: Avril Lavigne and her husband, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, aren't breaking up.

A source tells US Weekly magazine that Chad "has been going around and telling people that they're divorcing," and the magazine also points to the fact that Avril was spotted August 30 without her wedding ring as further evidence.

However, a source close to the Canadian couple tells ABC News Radio that the couple is fine and denies the divorce story.  The two married July 1, 2013, in France.  It was the one-year anniversary of their first date, which was also, appropriately enough, Canada Day.  It was Avril's second marriage; Chad's first.

Chad and Nickelback will release a new album, No Fixed Address, on November 4.
