Quick Hits: Billboard Music Awards, Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, 3 Doors Down, Parliament-Funkadelic
April 24, 2013

The Billboard Music Awards have added a number of new performers to the show's lineup. Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Selena Gomez, The Band Perry and Kacey Musgraves will all perform at the annual awards show, which will air on ABC on May 19. Prince, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars and Miguel were all previously announced as performers.

After debuting new music in a Pepsi ad, Beyoncé is teasing another new song via another commercial. In a new ad for H&M, a bikini-clad B dances around the beach and sings along to a new tune, "Standing On The Sun." According to Rap-Up, the commercial was directed by long-time music video director Jonas Akerland. Meanwhile, on her Mrs. Carter tour in Europe, Beyoncé performed the new song "Grown Woman" (the song from the Pepsi commercial) in concert for the first time. You can see the H&M "Standing On The Sun" ad below:

A documentary about the late Amy Winehouse is in the works from Universal Music and director Asif Kapadia. Focus Films plans to shop the as-yet-untitled movie at the Cannes Film Market, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Kapadia and producer James Gay-Rees said in a statement, "Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent who captured everyone's attention; she wrote and sung from the heart, and everyone fell under her spell. But tragically, Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle. As a society we celebrated her huge success, but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us."

3 Doors Down bassist Robert Todd Harrell has checked himself into rehab, according to reports, following last weekend's fatal crash outside Nashville. As previously reported, Harrell was driving his Cadillac CTS at a high rate of speed on the interstate when he clipped the bumper of a pickup truck, sending it swerving out of control and down an embankment, where the driver, Paul Howard Shoulders Jr., was ejected and killed. Harrell's lawyer said the musician was released on bond and immediately checked into rehab. 3 Doors Down have canceled their upcoming tour dates in late April and early May, and as of now are slated to return to the road at the end of May in Europe.

Former Parliament-Funkadelic bassist Cordell "Boogie" Mosson has passed away at the age of 60. Billboard reports the musician died last Thursday and no official cause of death has been revealed. Mosson worked with George Clinton and the various P-Funk incarnations from the early '70s onward. In 1997, he was one of the 16 members of the band inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
