Ed Sheeran: Upcoming tour will involve less partying, more sightseeing

Ed Sheeran is planning a huge world tour in support of his upcoming album ÷ (Divide), but he says this tour will be different from his other tours.  How so? Well, this time, he'll actually spend time checking out the cities where he's performing, and not sleeping off the previous night's bender. "I'm gonna go out and see the country more when I'm touring it," Ed told the Brazilian video magazine Capricha. "So I'm gonna go out and see the cities everyday, rather than sleeping on the bus.  'Cause usually on the last tour, I was just hung over all…

Grammys 2017 -- the performances

As usual, Sunday night's Grammy Awards were less about the awards, and more about the performances, as unexpected artists duetted with one another, and artists who perhaps weren't household names going into the show proved why they were nominated in the first place. Here's rundown of who sang what: Adele opened the show with a simple, stark performance of "Hello" -- she sang on a darkened stage surrounded by a circle of light. The Weeknd, introduced by Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, teamed with Daft Punk, in all their robot glory, for "I Feel It Coming." Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban…

Adele Wins Five Grammys, Drops the F-Bomb, Says Beyonce Should Have Won

Sunday night's 59th Annual Grammy Awards turned out to be all about Adele -- and her love for Beyonce. The British superstar won five trophies, including Album of the Year for 25, and Record and Song of the Year for "Hello."  While accepting Record of the Year, she gushed over pregnant Queen Bey, who was sitting in the front row, saying, "You move my soul every single day and have for 17 years...I adore you and I want you to be MY mummy!"  But when Adele returned to the podium minutes later to accept Album of the Year, she went…

Grammys: Could Beyonce Win for Best Rock Performance? Could Pink Win for Best Country Performance?

Beyonce leads all nominees for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday night with nine nods, but she's not a shoo-in to take every category she's up for...like Best Rock Performance, for example. Beyonce is up for Best Rock Performance for "Don't Hurt Yourself," a song she recorded with rocker Jack White from her album Lemonade.  But considering that her competition in this category includes actual rock acts, like the metal band Disturbed, the rock duo Twenty One Pilots and the late David Bowie, she shouldn't count on taking home this particular award.  It's not unusual for the Grammys to…

Adam Levine Gets Hollywood Star: "I Am One of the Luckiest People Who's Ever Lived"

He's talented, famous, rich and handsome, plus he's married to a Victoria's Secret model.  No wonder Adam Levine said he was "one of the luckiest people who's ever lived" Friday, when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Adam's pals Sammy Hagar and Blake Shelton were there to make speeches about what a great guy he is.  His wife Behati Prinsloo, daughter Dusty Rose and his parents also were there to support him, so it's no wonder the singer sounded humbled when he addressed the crowd.
