Morrissey Attacked on Stage as He Kicks Off Tour

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Concerts / Tours, Rock,

MorrisseyMorrissey was attacked on stage as he kicked off his North American tour last night.

The former Smiths frontman performed at San Jose's City National Civic and was mobbed by fans during a stage invasion at the end of the show, after a number of people from the audience went up to hug the star. He ignored them and carried on singing "One Day Goodbye Will Be Farewell" until fans started slamming into him and he cut the show off mid song after he was knocked down.

The 54-year-old singer, who was helped backstage by security, played a 20-song set before the interruption after a number of tour postponements due to ill health. Morrissey was told by doctors to take it easy after suffering from a bleeding ulcer, double pneumonia and a throat condition in January last year.

He is now back to his best and debuted three new songs during last night's gig - "The Bullfighter Dies," "Earth Is The Loneliest Planet" and the title track from his forthcoming album, "World Peace Is None Of Your Business."

She later opted for a shoulder-length platinum blonde wig and futuristic white gown, a jeweled leotard with a blue orb in the center of her chest, and also dressed up as a giant squid in another polkadot number.

The 27-year-old star, who is touring to support her ARTPOP album, took to Twitter ahead of her first show and posted, "I can't believe the show is tonight, been dreaming about it since I wrote the first song for the album. I love you monsters. LETS PARTY [sic]."

"I study how other people perform and that is unacceptable, as the Backstreet Boys have so many hits. Do not do that ever again, that is not fair," Sheeran said.

Miley Cyrus Defends Use of Little People on ‘Bangerz’ Tour

Miley Cyrus and a little person on her tourMiley Cyrus has defended her use of little people as backing dancers.

The "We Can't Stop" star is accompanied by short people on stage for her current Bangerz Tour, but insists they are employed to have fun rather than just because of their height.

Talking to MSNBC's Ronan Farrow, she said, "We're making them feel sexual and beautiful." Speaking more specifically about one of the dancers, she added, "We're all about lifting her up and making her feel so sexy all the time, and having her dance - she's actually an awesome dancer. They're just like dancing, doing these cute moves and they're awesome dancers just on their own. It's not me telling them how to be. It's really funny how serious people take it. And [people are] like, 'You're racist.' And I'm like, 'Really?' We're like a bunch of kids dancing around in, like, bear [suits], we don't do choreography."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Break-ups, Rumors,

Katy PerryKaty Perry and John Mayer split up because of her upcoming world tour.

The "Dark Horse" singer, 29, was reportedly dumped by the singer-songwriter, 32, because they were arguing a lot and she is "stressed" about her Prismatic concerts, which are scheduled to kick off in Belfast, Northern Ireland in early May and will see her travel across three continents until the end of the year.

"She's stressed about the tour, they've been fighting. It is probably for the best, because she is going to be on tour for forever. Of course this happens all the time, I can't keep track anymore. But for now they are done," a source said.

The duo, who released the romantic duet "Who You Love" in December, first began dating in summer 2012 and had an on/off relationship until things became serious between them last year, after Katy publicly admitted she was "still madly in love with him." A friend predicted they could reunite again, saying, "Not sure how long it will last this time but yes, it is off for now." But a third source said, "They've had rough patches, but this may be for good."
