Taylor Swift on the stand: "It was a very long grab...he stayed latched on to my bare [butt]"

It's day four in the case of Mueller vs. Swift, and Taylor Swift is now on the stand in Colorado, testifying about the night in 2013 that she claims deejay David Mueller groped her during a backstage meet-and-greet.  She's insistent that Mueller deliberately grabbed her.

Hear Pink's new single, "What About Us," out now; more new album details released

Wednesday night, Pink announced that her new album, Beautiful Trauma, would be out October 13.  Now, the first single from the disc, "What About Us," has arrived, along with more details about the project. "What About Us" was co-written by Pink and two of Ed Sheeran's main collaborators: Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, and Steve Mac.  The song seems to be a criticism of someone or some group of people -- possibly politicians -- who promised the moon, but then failed to deliver.  It ends with a call to action. "What about us? What about all the times you said…

Imagine Dragons' latest album came after a much-needed break: "We were pretty unhealthy"

Imagine Dragons' latest album Evolve debuted at #2 and has produced a massive hit single, "Believer."  Frontman Dan Reynolds says there's a big difference in how they made this album, compared to their previous releases: They took a break to focus on their well-being before heading back into the studio. "It was the first time that we actually took time off the road to go home and kinda recuperate between album cycles, and I think that was really good for us," Dan tells ABC Radio.  He laughs, "It got us in a healthy spot...we were pretty unhealthy, to be honest!"…

Deejay in Taylor Swift case agrees it's "never inappropriate" for a woman to report being touched

Morning testimony is now complete on Day 3 of the trial involving Taylor Swift and David Mueller, the Denver, Colorado deejay she claimed groped her during a concert meet-and-greet in 2013.
