Mariah Carey Reschedules 2018 Australasia Tour

Mariah Carey has pushed back her #1s Tour of Australia and New Zealand and dropped Perth from the itinerary.  Carey’s trek was meant to kick off in early February, but those shows have now been bumped to October due to a “necessary realignment of her international engagements,” promoters MJR Presents said in a statement Tuesday. The U.S. pop star’s concerts in Melbourne and Sydney have been shifted to alternative venues and the planned show at Perth Arena has been scrapped.    “It’s always unfortunate when these situations occur and we regret any inconvenience the rescheduling has caused for fans,” said MJR director Scott Mesiti. “We’re very excited that we’ve been able to find suitable time for Mariah’s return to ensure fans don’t miss out on what is sure to be a spectac...

Anna Kendrick, Darlene Love & Others Play ‘Christmas’ With Classroom Instruments on ‘Tonight Show’: Watch

It’s that time of year again when many of us kick back, relax in front of the TV, slip into a warm sweater and, just maybe, belt out a Christmas song. If that sounds like your idea of fun, then The Tonight Show has you covered.   Anna Kendrick joined Darlene Love, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for a performance of “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” with classroom instruments. Sadly, Kendrick was denied a chance to play a banana shaker or kazoo, but she does shine with a stint on lead vocals. Check out the performance below.  [embedded content]

Jodie Sweetin Ex-Husband Getting ‘Fuller’ Pockets 12/19/2017 12:30 AM PST EXCLUSIVE Jodie Sweetin‘s ex-husband went crying to the judge for child support now that Jodie’s a big star again … and the judge agreed with him. The “Fuller House” star has been ordered to cough up $2,800 per month to Morty Coyle … this according to new docs obtained by TMZ. We broke the story … Morty went to court asking for child support claiming she’s now making at least $600k per year, largely in part to the new Netflix series. When the divorce went final in 2016, Jodie said she was earning just $4,000 per month, and the judge said she didn’t have to pay child support. What a difference a year makes.

10 Deep Cuts From The Neil Young Archives

Last weekend, Neil Young unveiled his best defense yet in the ongoing war against poor quality streaming audio with the launch of his sprawling Archives.  The website might look like some kind of retro-futuristic filing cabinet Doc Brown might have been working on between 1955 and 1985, something that SPIN’s Winston Cook-Wilson brilliantly compared to the old Carmen Sandiego PC game in his report on the site. However, when you click that old-timey toggle up at the top of the page, you are immediately thrust into a wormhole of optimal digital audio that allows you to switch between 320kbs or Young’s custom Xstream audio plugin, his most direct retaliation in combating the fidelity-compromising practices of corporate streaming services. “Today all music suffers from low quality audio through...

Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’ on Course For U.K. Christmas No. 1

It’s looking like a “Perfect” Christmas in the U.K. Based on sales and streams at the midweek stage, Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” remains on track for the coveted U.K. Christmas No. 1. Sheeran’s latest hit holds the lead and the top spot on the Official Chart Update, though Eminem’s “River” (Interscope) featuring Sheeran, is outperforming “Perfect” on streaming, so the race is far from over, according to the Official Charts Company. “Perfect” became Sheeran’s fourth No. 1 in the U.K. when it hit the summit of the Official Singles Chart two weeks ago, fueled by a new version featuring vocals with Beyoncé. A third, orchestral version dropped last Friday with Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli on guest vocals.  Meanwhile, Wham’s “Last Christmas” (RCA)...
