Clean Bandit Says US Success Is a "Massive Surprise"

Clean Bandit -- a British quartet that mixes dance music and classical music -- is experiencing huge success in the U.S. charts with their hit "Rather Be."  They've just kicked off a headline tour of North America, and say they're shocked by how popular they seem to be on this side of the pond. "Well it's a massive surprise that the shows sold out," said Bandit cellist Grace Chatto backstage at ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday.  "Because we didn't know whether anyone would really come or if anyone would know the songs if they did come."  The band played…

Iggy Azalea Suing Ex Who Claimed He Co-Stars in Her Sex Tape

The ongoing story about whether or not Iggy Azalea actually made a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend just got a whole lot more complicated. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Iggy has now filed suit against her ex Maurice Williams, who raps under the name Jefe Wine, accusing him not of releasing a sex tape, but of releasing her early music, and forging a contract he claims gives him the right to do so.  The publication reports that, according to the complaint, Iggy met Williams in 2008 in Houston, and they began a relationship, even though, unbeknownst to Iggy, he was…

Avril and Chad Not Splitting Up, Despite Reports

Don't believe the rumors: Avril Lavigne and her husband, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, aren't breaking up. A source tells US Weekly magazine that Chad "has been going around and telling people that they're divorcing," and the magazine also points to the fact that Avril was spotted August 30 without her wedding ring as further evidence. However, a source close to the Canadian couple tells ABC News Radio that the couple is fine and denies the divorce story.  The two married July 1, 2013, in France.  It was the one-year anniversary of their first date, which was also, appropriately enough, Canada Day. …
