February 14, 2017


Katy Perry

Speaking to E! News at the Grammys, Katy Perry discussed her songwriting for her upcoming new album. Perry said, "I think I used to be the queen of innuendo and I woke up a little bit more, educated myself a little bit more, but obviously donít know all the answers, and maybe Iím a little bit more the queen of subtext. I think itís a song that starts conversations and I think thatís what we need more than ever. Thereís so much divisiveness and people on one side or the other and I think we just need to listen to each other." She added that "Thereís going to be all kinds of stuff on there and donít worry youíre going to have some of that good, old Katy Perry fluffy stuff that you love so much," mentioning one new song called "Bon Appťtit." Additionally, Perry has been announced as a performer at the Brit Awards, set for February 22 in London.

Also in an interview at the Grammys, The Chainsmokers revealed more details about their upcoming full-length record. The duo told Entertainment Tonight their first proper album is titled Memories, Do Not Open and will be out on April 7.

On the heels of his three Grammy wins, Chance the Rapper has announced an extensive spring 2017 tour. The trek kicks off in San Diego on April 24 and wraps up with his appearance at the Firefly Festival in Dover, DE on June 17, which is one of multiple festival performances he has scheduled in the coming months. Chance also announced a date in Los Angeles on October 3.
