    JamesExhale got a reaction from popprison in 49 Million People Tuned Into Katy Perry's Live Stream   
    Queen of Livestreams.




    You were probably one of them.


    Katy Perry's unfiltered 96-hours in Witness Headquarters brought in a load of viewers (49 million of them, to be exact), according to a report via Billboard, which was published on Thursday (June 15).

    As per the stat, over 49 million of those views came from 190 different countries, which means a whole lot of folks saw Katy get real vulnerable, during the lengthy weekend. "We are absolutely thrilled with the success of this unique and surprising event and are honored to have supported Katy’s ambitious, creative vision,” said Susanne Daniels, Global Head of Original Content, YouTube in a statement. “It was truly remarkable to watch Katy share herself with the world and we admire her openness, honesty, and engagement with fans on YouTube throughout the entire 96-hour live stream."

    Speaking of numbers, this weekend also saw Hits Daily Double complete their sales estimate for WITNESS with 187,338 copies (sales and streaming) and Perry become the first person to reach 100 million followers via Twitter. Coincidence? I think not. Either way, congratulations are in order, Ms. Perry.

    JamesExhale got a reaction from mylonliNESS in Ariana Grande Visits Injured Fans In Hospital Following Manchester Concert Attack   
    Beautiful.




    Much respect, Ari.


    It's been less than two weeks since 22 individuals were killed at Ariana Grande's Manchester show due to a suicide bomber, but the pop star is doing what she can do to help.

    Days ahead of her One Love Manchester memorial concert, which will feature performances from Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Miley Cyrus and many more, the 23-year-old star took to the hospital to visit some of her fans, who were injured in the terror attack. For someone who has her own road to recovery to tend to, it's beautiful to see Grande step up to the plate to visit her fans and try to assist in the aftermath of this horrific tragedy.

    If you want to catch the One Love Manchester benefit concert, you're in luck because it will air on both ABC and Freeform on Sunday (June 4). While ABC will air a one-hour highlights version of the affair following game 2 of the NBA Finals, Freeform is set to air the concert in full at 2 PM ET. Be sure to check back for more highlights on One Love Manchester!

    JamesExhale got a reaction from laguna.azul in Linkin Park To Fans: Move The F**k On From 'Hybrid Theory'   
    Ugh.





    Chester Bennington wants folks to embrace a new chapter.


    If you thought that Linkin Park’s latest musical chapter was an attempt to gain some commercial or monetary value, then lead singer Chester Bennington has a few words for you: "Stab yourself in the face."

    It’s a harsh response to the critcism the band's received for their latest wave of tracks, including “Heavy," "Battle Symphony" and "Good Goodbye,” but a necessary pushback if they're going to try and grow. In a new interview in promotion for their upcoming LP, One More Light, Bennington told Music Week that everyone is allowed to feel the way they feel about their new music unless they're questioning the band's intent.



    Later in the interview, Bennington was put on the spot when asked why the group decided to move on from the sound of Hybrid Theory, their debut LP that went on to sell over 10 million units in the United States, and his message was crystal clear. "When we made Hybrid Theory, I was the oldest guy in the band and in my early '20s. That’s why I guess I’m like: ‘Why are we still talking about Hybrid Theory? It's f**king years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the f**k on. You know what I mean?”

    As we've recently witnessed with Lady Gaga, it’s sad that we can't let artists explore other avenues of their artistry, particularly when that means leaving the beloved sound of their past in the past. However, with that said, we can't say that we click with this new era of LP as much as we did with their older material. As Chad said, maybe we have to just try harder to “move the f**k on."

    One More Light drops on May 19 via Warner Bros.

    JamesExhale got a reaction from popprison in Report: Drake Has Spent 400 Consecutive Weeks On The Billboard Hot 100   
    When will your fave?




    Numbers don’t lie.


    If you needed any further evidence that prove Drake basically rules the industry, then you might want to take a look at his latest chart achievement because it’s quite impressive.

    Over the weekend, Chart Data, an outlet that reports music news via Twitter, revealed that Drizzy Drake has reportedly spent a whopping 400 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Let that figure sink in for just a moment. FYI: "Best I Ever Had" was the MC's first top 10 hit back in 2009.








    Following the rapper is a circle of close collaborators/industry peers, including Lil Wayne (326 straight weeks), Rihanna (216) and Nicki Minaj (207). They remain the only four artists with 200+ consecutive weeks of charting on the weekly Billboard list. If Drake's plans with Jennifer Lopez stay on track, it sounds like that spree will most definitely continue as the pop star recently revealed their collaboration is set to be part of his next album, More Life.

    Over the weekend, the OVO boss took to Amsterdam and surprised fans when he popped up at Rae Sremmurd's concert to show them some love with performances of "Fake Love" and "Jumpman."

    JamesExhale got a reaction from popprison in Dashboard Confessional Add Their Emo Twist To Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself": LISTEN   
    It's the early 2000s all over again.




    It's not like Trump's inauguration didn't make you feel depressingly sad anyways.


    As if Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" couldn't get any more somber, Dashboard Confessional (yes, that band from your teenage years) have unleashed a cover of the pop star's Purpose hit and added their signature emo twist to the track.

    For the revamped version, frontman Chris Carrabba extends the tune to a whole five minute and leads listeners on a vulnerable ride similar to the Biebster's original. However, this cover entirely screams LiveJournal song status and we mean that as a compliment! There's no way JB could ever deliver depressingly delicate wails the same way Carrabba does during that final chorus.

    Dashboard Confessional's cover comes courtesy of the band's surprise EP, Covered and Taped, which surfaced on Thursday night (January 19). Among the other cover tracks on the set include Julien Baker's "Sprained Ankle," Sorority Noise's "Using" and The 1975's "Sex."

    Even though it has been almost a decade since their last full-length album (2009's After the Ending), you can catch the foursome on an intimate trek around the U.S. until the beginning of March. Head over to their official site for a list of tour dates.

    Take a listen to Dashboard Confessional's Covered and Taped below!

    JamesExhale got a reaction from brocklovesgreys in Fifth Harmony Is 'Back On The Rehearsal Grind' Without Camila Cabello   
    Back to work.




    Three days and counting ...


    We're just a couple of days away from Fifth Harmony's first performance as a foursome at the 2017 People's Choice Awards (their first since Camila Cabello's deparure) and the group is well underway with rehearsals.

    On Saturday (January 14), Ally Brooke, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei took to Instagram to share a sneak peek of their rehearsal time and it looks like they're doing just fine without Ms. Cabello. "Back on the rehearsal grind. Let's do this," the group captioned the photo alongside a heart emoji. No word on what song they'll perform, but considering Epic Records reportedly pulled "That's My Girl" from radio airwaves a day after Cabello's announcement, we're guessing that we're moving onto another single or maybe they'll churn out a hits medley.

    In addition to their upcoming performance, the pop group is also nominated for Favorite Group. Just last year, they won their first People's Choice Awards for that very award. In early January, Billboard confirmed that the four remaining members will continue under Epic Records as a quartet to release their third album later this year.

    JamesExhale got a reaction from Helga Pataki in Selena Gomez: Bella Hadid Shouldn't Be Mad I'm Dating The Weeknd   
    No friend code here.




    This sounds messy.


    All hell broke loose when photos of Selena Gomez and The Weeknd making out surfaced on Wednesday, and it appears as if the R&B crooner's former flame Bella Hadid isn't too happy with the recent revelation.

    On Saturday morning (January 14), TMZ reported that the model felt betrayed by Gomez because she and her sister Gigi were there to help the pop titan through some emotional issues in recent times. Oh, and the whole girl code thing.

    Now, sources close to Gomez have hit back at the claims, revealing that her romance with The Weeknd shouldn't be that big of a deal because she was never really that close with either of the Hadid sisters.

    In the newest report on the love triangle, sources close to the pop titan admit that if Selena felt like she needed to tell Bella about the romance, she simply would have. According to her, she's never been incredibly close with either models. They've just always been in reach because of squad ringleader Taylor Swift.

    As for The Weeknd, well, he hasn't said anything on the debacle, but it's only a matter of time before this gets even messier. Cue Tisdale's "He Said She Said."

    JamesExhale got a reaction from popprison in Ed Sheeran Defends Mariah Carey's NYE Debacle: I Didn’t Find That Funny   
    Ed to the rescue!




    That was no laughing matter, according to Ed.


    In case you were living under a rock, Mariah Carey had a turbulent time during her New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square and everyone seemed to slam the pop titan for the set. However, Ed Sheeran is the exception to that wave of criticism.

    Earlier this week, Sheeran continued his promo for his new songs and stopped by "Cubby And Carolina In The Morning" of 103.5 KTU to weigh in on MC's slaughter. "I feel like that could happen to anyone. That’s happened to me before when the in-ears just didn’t work,” he said in her defense. "She’s in the middle of Times Square with no monitors. It’s really difficult. You can’t sing in time for that. . . .I know people are watching that and poking fun at her, but that’s a really, really horrible situation to be in. You’re just there, powerless.”

    “That could [happen] to me and I’d hate for people to think I’m not musical because the sound wasn’t working properly,” he added.

    In fact, Mariah’s debacle once happened to Sheeran when he was performing with Taylor Swift. Always one to look for the silver lining, he said that at least he can say that the set was live and it wasn’t entirely dependent on a backing track.

    Listen to Ed talk about the Mariah debacle at the 4:30 mark below!
