Ozzy OsbourneOzzy Osbourne saw a dog at one of his concerts wearing a sign that read, "Please don't eat me!"

The legendary hellraiser, who famously bit the head off a bat on stage in 1982, said there have been many surreal moments during this year's Black Sabbath reunion tour. "At one of this year's gigs, somebody let a dog go with a sign on its leg saying, 'Please don't eat me!'" he told The Sun.

Ozzy spoke about winding up his band mates, including bassist and chief Sabbath lyricist Geezer Butler. "Geezer is a vegetarian. When he walked off the stage, I said, 'Does your wife eat meat?' And he replies, 'Yeah.' So I said, 'What, do you have a funeral every time she has a bacon sandwich?'" he explained.

Ozzy, who has been sober for nearly a year after relapsing into drink and drugs, said he's nearly injured himself on stage every night and is shocked by the band's massive success after releasing their monumental album 13 and being nominated for three Grammy Awards: "Every night, I've slipped on the stage. I nearly fell in the f***ing orchestra pit. I mean it's tough on the other guys. When they're all getting serious, I make them laugh and they all get p***ed off. Nothing's rehearsed with me. One day, I'll just put a bucked on my head. 'Just when you think things might be winding up, it gets bigger than ever. Honestly I'm in shock. I keep thinking I'm the luckiest guy in the world. It's been a dream."

EminemEminem reportedly refused to perform at a Super Bowl party unless he was paid $2 million.

The "Monster" rapper is said to have been approached to play a concert at the NFL Owners Party during Super Bowl week in 2014. According to TMZ, the offer was for Eminem to perform a set of his greatest hits for 1,500 guests following a lavish dinner, but organizers were forced to find a replacement act after the rapper demanded the hefty fee.

Reps for the event were also eyeing a performance from Kanye West only to find that his fee was also out of budget. "[For Kanye] it was $1 million, plus a lot of other perks," a source revealed.

As a last resort organizers have reportedly snapped up "Tight Rope" singer Janelle Monae who will perform for a more reasonable $150,000.

John Mayer and Katy PerryKaty Perry joined John Mayer on stage for a surprise appearance in Brooklyn.

The "Roar" hitmaker and her boyfriend sang their duet "Who You Love" from John's latest album Paradise Valley. They performed together on Tuesday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and even managed to sneak in a few kisses at the beginning of the song.

Hours before John, 36, and Katy, 29, sat down on Good Morning America for their first joint interview and premiered the music video for "Who You Love," which saw the couple kiss and embrace. John was initially hesitant to feature Katy on the track, saying, "My first thought was, 'You can't do that' and then the more I thought about just the music part of it, it made perfect sense. Even if I didn't know Katy, it would have made perfect sense.... For me it always had to be about the song ... It's a pretty big moving target to be a couple and have a song but I think there's an authenticity to it when you hear it."

Katy said about her duet with John, "It transcends us. It's more about the message of the song."

LordeLorde thinks she looks like Gollum from Lord of the Rings when she performs on stage.

The 17-year-old star likened herself to the ugly fictional character from J.R.R Tolkien's tales during a question and answer session with fans on entertainment website Reddit. "I know when I'm on stage, I don't think about how it looks, I just concentrate on really feeling what I hear. But I totally know I look like Gollum when I perform, so it's cool," the "Royals" singer explained.

Lorde also revealed she "hates dentists," when asked why she referred to her teeth so much in her debut album, Pure Heroine. In an hour, the Kiwi singer attracted almost 5,000 questions and comments during the "Ask Me Anything" session. During that time, she confirmed she would be performing at a "major festival" in North America in 2014 and revealed for her next video, she is deciding between the album tracks Ribs, 400 Lux and Buzzcut.

Lady Gaga and R. Kelly

R.Kelly says he met his match when he collaborated with Lady Gaga.

The R&B star, who worked with the pop star on the track "Do What U Want" from her latest album Artpop, has gushed about the singer after their raunchy performance at the American Music Awards this month. "I met my match when I met Lady Gaga. There's no doubt about it. She's very talented, she has a vision, she has a gift to the world. Then she has balls and she's not afraid to express herself. I don't think she does things to be controversial, she's just being herself," R.Kelly told The Sun newspaper.

Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi, and Prince William

Is Prince William our next big rock star? A video documenting the royal's trio act with Taylor Swift and Bon Jovi (seen after the jump!) performing "Livin' on a Prayer" might convince you if you're actually having a hard time imagining it.

Swift and Bon Jovi were present at the UK's Winter Whites Gala held at Kensington Palace for a fundraiser in aid of the Centerpoint charity. Although Swift performed a song about palaces and princes in a palace with a prince - "Love Story" - folks in attendance were in for a huge surprise when Bon Jovi took the stage, encouraging the British royals' newest father to join him on stage. At first hesitant, Prince William hinted that he'd only agree if Swift would join in - to which she easily obliged (who wouldn't get the opportunity to sing alongside a real-life prince and a living musical legend?).

EminemEminem struggled to perform sober after quitting drugs and alcohol.

The 41-year-old rapper - who was hospitalized after a suspected methadone overdose in 2007 - sought the help of a rehab counselor in April 2008 and admitted his heavy drinking and substance abuse left him confused about how to "connect" with an audience.

"I was so trapped in my own head. I think that back then it was so big in my head, it was like, 'f**k man' let me take this and drink this and get through it as opposed to going out there and actually being able to see the people and connect with the crowd and have fun with it," he said, speaking to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.

However, the "Berzerk" star eventually adapted to his sober state and was able to perform to audiences that he could "actually see."

Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus

Demi Lovato thinks Miley Cyrus' voice is overshadowed by her controversial behavior.

The X Factor judge thinks 20-year-old Miley is a genuine talent but people only focus on her twerking. She offered support for her fellow former Disney star and told Katie Couric on her talk show, "I think she knows what she's doing. A lot of artists take that route of shock value and that's totally fine and that's great, but I think that she has such an incredible voice that's overshadowed by some of the things she's doing... You know it's her journey, she's having fun, she's being who she is and will always love her."

Chris MartinChris Martin disguised himself as a skeleton to DJ at an Arcade Fire show.

Concert-goers were completely unaware the Coldplay frontman was in the fancy dress outfit spinning records at the band's show at London's Roundhouse earlier this month.

Speaking about the gig - in which fans were asked to attend in either formal wear or fancy dress - frontman Win Butler told BBC Radio 2, "[Chris] was out at the DJ booth with me the other night wearing a skull mask. It was pretty cool. He was the hype man, he's an amazing hype man." When quizzed as to whether the audience recognized Chris, the "After-Life" singer replied ,"I don't think so."

Win also hinted Arcade Fire will be appearing at UK festivals next summer, but remained tight lipped as to which events they would perform at, teasing "get your wellies ready" and saying he had recently bought his six-month-old son his first pair of wellington boots in preparation for the festival season.
