The former DJ said he sent a $1 Sacagawea coin, featuring the Native American woman famous for assisting the Lewis and Clark expedition, to "raise awareness"…
Lorde continues to top end-of-year polls with her Grammy-nominated sophomore album Melodrama.
Melodrama rules Entertainment Weekly's "Best Albums of 2017" list, and the magazine says it "documents the rushes of young love with such precision, even the most jaded among us will feel the flicker of butterfly wings in their guts as they listen."
According to EW, the disc makes a case for Lorde as "her generation’s finest lyricist," and adds that Melodrama "reminds us what a privilege it is to feel anything as strongly and as messily as you did when you were young."

Fergie is getting candid about the “lowest point” in her life. In a new interview with U.K.'s iNews, the singer opens up about her past crystal meth addiction.
“At my lowest point, I was [suffering from] chemically induced psychosis and dementia,” Fergie says. “I was hallucinating on a daily basis. It took a year after getting off that drug for the chemicals in my brain to settle so that I stopped seeing things.”
She says the drugs made her so paranoid that she thought the CIA, FBI and a SWAT team were after her. As she depicted in her music…
If two of the world's biggest stars team up to record a duet, it'd be sort of weird if it didn't hit #1, right?
Ed Sheeran's single "Perfect," which is now a duet featuring Beyonce, sits at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it's selling so fast that it could reach #1 next week. If that happens, it would dethrone Post Malone's "Rockstar," which has spent eight weeks on top.
If "Perfect" does hit #1, it'd be the second song this year to do so following the addition of a high-profile guest artist. The first one was, of course,…

Not even Sia’s enormous wigs could hide her from criticism this week.
First, she faced backlash for collaborating with MAC on a charity lipstick, because the cosmetics brand sells its products in China, where animal testing is legal. Now, Sia is being criticized for putting young dancer Maddie Ziegler in the spotlight, after being outspoken about the damaging effects of fame.
In an article for The Guardian, writer Bonnie Malkin questions the double standard while reviewing Sia’s concert.
"Up on the stage in Sydney on Saturday, with [Sia] concealed and Maddie in the spotlight, it seemed that the superstar was…
In 2017, people were intrigued by Ariana Grande and Rihanna, but not because of their music.
Ari and RiRi both made People magazine's list of the "25 Most Intriguing People of 2017." Ariana was included because of her actions following the terrorist attack that killed 22 of her fans at her concert in Manchester, U.K.
Declaring that "calling off [the tour] and going home was not an option," Ari returned to Manchester a few weeks later to host a star-studded benefit concert for the victims, and then continued on with her tour.
Rihanna made the list because of her Fenty…
