June 11, 2014

Lady Gaga and her manager Bobby Campbell have inked a deal to join Live Nation's Artist Nation division. In a statement to Billboard.biz, Live Nation President/CEO Michael Rapino said, "Lady Gaga is one of the most iconic and highest-grossing artists of this generation. We have a long-standing relationship with Lady Gaga, dating back to her 2009 Fame Ball tour, and we look forward to continuing to support Lady Gaga and her manager Bobby Campbell in their careers."

Ariana Grande's hit single "Problem" (featuring Iggy Azalea) has been officially certified platinum by the RIAA, and it's already well on its way to doubling that number. At Republic Records' New York headquarters, label Co-Founder/CEO Monte Lipman and EVP Charlie Walk presented the Pop singer/actress with a plaque for this achievement.

Bono and The Edge are collaborating with director John Carney (Once) on music for a new film. Sing Street takes place in Dublin in the '80s and Carney tells Rolling Stone that the two U2 members "have been extremely helpful in discussing the musical aspect of the film and what the sound is going to be like. It's going to be set in the Eighties; obviously U2 were extremely prolific then, so they'll bring that, and they’ve just been great sounding boards. Bono has been very helpful with character and story as I've sort of pitched the project to him over the last few months." Carney said that Bono and The Edge could end up writing a few songs for the movie as well.

No Doubt and frontwoman Gwen Stefani have inked a management deal with Irving Azoff, according to Billboard. Stefani and the band recently parted ways with Jim Guerinot's Rebel Waltz Management, who they had worked with since 1998. Stefani is set to join NBC's The Voice as a judge this fall, taking the place of Christina Aguilera.

After scrapping numerous tour dates as of late, Morrissey has completely canceled the rest of his U.S. tour. According to reports, the singer has been battling a respiratory infection and has scrapped all his impending dates to fully recover. His new album, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, is due out July 15.

Kelly Rowland announced via Instagram on Tuesday that she is pregnant with her first child. The former Destiny's Child singer was married last month.

The 2014 Honda Civic Tour will be split into three tours in three genres of music. The first round of the annual tour will be co-headlined by Grouplove and Portugal The Man, kicking off August 10 in Seattle and running up to September 16 in New York City. American Authors will headline the second Honda Civic Tour, while 3BallMTY will top the third round.
