Ariana Grande will guest host American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest this weekend, August 30 and 31.  In addition to counting down the Top 40 songs, Grande will talk about the making of her new album, My Everything, which was just released this week.  She’ll also share what her favorite song is on the album, as well as what the album name means, who was the most fun to collaborate with, and plans for an upcoming tour. Plus, Grande will reveal who she wants to work with in the future.

Kings of Leon cancelled their Holmdel, NJ and Pittsburgh, PA shows this week as Nathan Followill is still recovering from injuries that occurred on August 9th, when their bus had to stop quickly to avoid hitting the pedestrian that stepped out in front of their bus. The band initially cancelled the next two weeks of shows, hoping to return to Holmdel on the 28th. Nathan took to twitter to apologize to his fans "I'm so bummed 2 have 2 cancel more shows but I need to be fully recovered before I get back. So sorry to the fans & thanks 4 understanding." The shows scheduled for Philadelphia's Made In America festival have not been cancelled as of yet.

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett release the second single off of their collaborated album Cheek To Cheek, available September 23rd. You can check out the behind the scenes video for "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" below.

After 36 years of marriage, Neil Young has filed for divorce from his wife Pegi Young. They have shared the stage countless times over the past 20 years, and she has been the inspiration to many of his songs. No comment has been made and the hearing is set for December 12th.
