Is Katy Perry's New Perfume Throwing Shade at Taylor Swift?

21 June 2016 6:42 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We're picking up a sent of "Bad Blood," but this time it's coming out of a perfume bottle. Katy Perry and Taylor Swift's rumored feud, which began when the "Style" songstress claimed that an unnamed pop star (believed to be Perry) stole dancers from her tour, might have reached a new level thanks to Katy's new perfume. Called Mad Love, the new perfume has people believing that it's a direct reference to T. Swift's "Bad Blood" because of the same wording. "You know it used to be mad love," Taylor sang in the song also rumored to be about her ongoing feud with the "Roar" singer. Mad Love is meant to be a spinoff of Katy's 2015 scent, Mad »

Taylor Swift, U2, Paul McCartney Slam YouTube in Copyright Reform Ad

20 June 2016 2:56 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Taylor Swift, Paul McCartney and U2 are among the artists signing a petition urging Congress to update the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (Dmca) so that artists can be appropriately compensated for their work. The petition is also aimed specifically at YouTube, stating that YouTube has provided a “safe harbor” for copyright infringement, according to Billboard. The current edition of the Dmca was drafted in 1998, way before modern technology of video streaming services. An ad will run this week in Politico, the Hill and Roll Call, featuring signatures of 180 performers and songwriters, also including Kings of Leon and Katy Perry. »

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Fight for the Same Cause: All the Details on Their Hopes for Digital Copyright Reform

20 June 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Whoever said music can tear artists apart may just want to rethink that argument. While Taylor Swift and Katy Perry haven't seen eye-to-eye on every issue, both talented artists have signed a petition calling for a reform of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. According to Billboard, the petition organized by music manager Irving Azoff contends that YouTube and other tech companies have provided a safe harbor for copyright infringement under the current writing of the Dmca. "It has allowed major tech companies to grow and generate huge profits by creating ease of use for consumers to carry almost every recorded song in history in their pocket via a smartphone, while songwriters' and »

In Fresh Statement, YouTube Says It Is Working With Music Labels

15 June 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Thus far in 2016, YouTube and the music industry can't seem to get along, but new information from the world's top video site suggests it is working to put its squabbles with labels behind it. In a statement shared with Billboard, YouTube said it is "working through details with the labels and independent music organizations who directly manage the deals with us."

The disagreement between YouTube and the music industry stems from what some perceive to be a "value gap" created by the video site's musical offerings. As YouTube's music streaming revenue has increased, payouts to artists have risen at a much slower pace, critics argue. These complaints, first lodged by prominent labels and top music industry organizations, have since been echoed by several prominent musicians, including Katy Perry, former Motley Crue frontman Nikki Sixx, and, most recently, Trent Reznor. Meanwhile, on the other side of the argument, creators like Hank Green have spoken out to defend YouTube.

Could this acrimonious dispute soon die down? YouTube's latest statement, however vague it is, seems to suggest some progress in its negotiations with labels. The video site has already launched the YouTube Music Foundry, a resource that aims to help emerging artists succeed in the online video world.

Michael Shannon Performs "Here Comes Your Man" on 'Lip Sync Battle'

15 June 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Based on an earlier sneak peek at this week's episode of Lip Sync BattleRachel Bloom is going all out with her performance of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." Michael Shannon, her opponent, seems to be taking a smaller approach, albeit with a much better song: The Pixies' "Here Comes Your Man." Though it's possible Shannon's second performance will be over the top, we're still into this lowkey sneak peek — especially because it gives us a lighter look at an actor who is primarily known for dark and serious roles.  The full episode airs Thursday.  »

Bloom Goes to Battle! Rachel Bloom Performs Katy Perry for Lip Sync Battle Against Michael Shannon

13 June 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

[Youtube "_JLVwFjCtIY"] This one time at band camp … In a Lip Sync Battle preview released Monday, Rachel Bloom gets goofy and nostalgic as she geeks out to Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star is going up against Boardwalk Empire vet Michael Shannon on Thursday's episode of the Spike TV karaoke series. Shannon, 41, is a musician, and it hasn't been released yet what song he will perform, but he'll still have to bring his A-game to stack up to theatrics of YouTube star–turned–Golden Globe winner Bloom, 29. And it's not the first time Perry's 2010 hit has been used in a Lip Sync Battle. »

Perhaps we all shouldn’t remember high school so fondly, after all. Lest you forgot what your face used to look like, this Thursday on “Lip Sync Battle,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom reminds us all about acne. The hideous makeup was in-character, of course, as the actress performed Katy Perry‘s “Teenage Dream” as a high school band member. Watch the video above.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's Rachel Bloom Is Living Her Dream in Lip Sync Battle Clip

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom is finally taking the Lip Sync Battle stage this Thursday (Spike TV, 10/9c), and in typical Bloom fashion, this performance has layers.

On the surface, sure, she’s just mouthing along to Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” with a fake marching band while (presumably) thinking about that dream boat Josh Chan.

But what if this isn’t just any ol’ band with whom Bloom is marching? What if this is the middle school band that was axed (“Sorry, kids. Budget cuts. »

Here's A Sneak Peek at Rachel Bloom Performing "Teenage Dream"

13 June 2016 7:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This week's upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle features Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) competing against Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire). As much as we love Shannon, it's clear that Bloom — a theater kid — has the obvious advantage here.  In the sneak peek below, we get a hint of Bloom's performance of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." Bloom goes a step further than just lip-syncing and actually channels the awkwardness of being a teenager, right down to the ill-fitting band uniform and the terrible skin. Michael Shannon's going to have to pull out all the stops if he wants to win.  The full episode airs Thursday at 10 on Spike.  »

Christina Grimmie: Remembering Her Best Performances on The Voice

12 June 2016 8:49 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Words can’t accurately convey the horror and heartbreak of The Voice alum Christina Grimmie‘s senseless shooting death Friday night while signing autographs after a concert in Florida.

The world lost a creative, charismatic, ridiculously talented artist who had decades of musical memory-making in front of her. Even worse, Grimmie’s friends and family now have to contemplate a future without the bubbly, driven and by-all-accounts infectiously positive 22-year-old in their lives.

Thirty-six hours after the tragedy occurred, there’s still no making sense of it. I suspect there’ll never never any making sense of it.
