Quick Hits: Miley Cyrus & Madonna, Alice In Chains, J. Cole, Motley Crue
January 29, 2014


Miley Cyrus
When Miley Cyrus' episode of MTV Unplugged airs tonight at 9 p.m., it will feature none other than Madonna performing along with the young singer. Madge and Miley, both wearing sequined cowgirl gear, will do a mash-up of Madonna's 2000 hit "Don't Tell Me" and Miley's "We Can't Stop." "I wanted to have someone here that wasn't the obvious and something that was different than just being on my record, something that people wouldn't really expect," Cyrus told MTV News about teaming up with the legendary Pop star. "And even I didn't expect Madonna to be necessarily down to do something like Unplugged with me. So the fact that she's here, kind of doing this hoedown thing with me now, is unbelievable. I'm so stoked."

Alice In Chains has mapped out a 21-date spring tour of the U.S. The band's website lists dates from April 25 in Tulsa, OK, to May 24 in Council Bluffs, IA. The band is still touring in support of its 2013 album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.

J. Cole is launching his own label, Dreamville, in partnership with Interscope Records. The rapper made the announcement on Twitter, just before dropping a new mixtape called The Revenge of the Dreamers. The 11-track effort features Dreamville artists and friends including KQuick, Bas and Omen.

Motley Crue has decided to call it a career, and the band held a press conference in Los Angeles on Tuesday to announce their final tour. The Crue even signed a formal "Cessation Of Touring Agreement," effective at the end of 2015, promising that they will never, ever tour again once this farewell cycle is complete. The Final Tour will kick off in North America on July 2 in Grand Rapids, MI and reach 72 markets before hitting international territories in 2015. Alice Cooper will serve as the opening act. "When it comes to putting together a new show we always push the envelope and that's part of Motley Crue's legacy," says bassist Nikki Sixx. "As far as letting on to what we're doing, that would be like finding out what you're getting for Christmas before you open the presents. We think in an age of too much information, we’d like to keep some surprises close to our chest until we launch the Final Tour."
