Chris Daughtry Is Dying for a Role on "The Walking Dead"

Chris Daughtry really wants to be part of a zombie apocalypse. The singer -- who’s been exploring more acting roles in recent years -- tells Music Times he’s dying for a role on AMC’s The Walking Dead. “Honestly I’ve been lobbying for The Walking Dead,” he says of his dream acting role. “I’ve been auditioning for the last season.” Chris, who most recently played Judas in Fox’s The Passion, reveals he auditioned for the role of Dwight -- a member of the antagonist group The Saviors who sports a half-burned face.

Daya Says She and The Chainsmokers "Meshed Really Well" on "Don't Let Me Down"

In addition to her own hit, "Hide Away," and her new single "Sit Still Look Pretty," Daya has yet another song on the charts: "Don't Let Me Down," her collabo with The Chainsmokers.  Though the combination of an EDM deejay duo and a 17-year-old singer/songwriter seems kind of odd, Daya says she and the guys -- Andrew and Alex -- "meshed really well." "They reached out to me a couple of months ago," she tells ABC Radio about how the collabo came about. "They were just fans of my song and I was obviously a huge fan of theirs, and…

Demi Lovato Admits She “Was a Nightmare to Work with” Before Getting Sober

Demi Lovato’s been sober for four years now, but she hasn’t forgotten the time when her addictions threatened to ruin her life. In a candid interview with Refinery29, the singer recalls how she dismissed her parents and members of her team when they tried to help. “‘Try to ground me -- I pay your bills,’” she says she told them. “Prior to getting sober, I was one of those people who was like, I don’t give a f***, whatever. And I used that as an excuse to do whatever I wanted. I was a nightmare to work with.” After leaving…

Bruno Mars was a surprise wedding singer on last night’s season finale of The CW's Jane the Virgin. The singer popped up at Jane’s wedding reception and debuted his romantic ballad, “Rest of My Life.” Bruno played himself for the cameo role, which makes sense because on the show, Jane’s father is a famous telenovela star with celebrity connections. Britney Spears and Kesha also guest starred this season. After the episode, star Gina Rodriguez tweeted a thank you to Bruno “for coming to our wedding.” As for the song he sang, Bruno reportedly wrote the tune years ago, but never…
