"This is the greatest honor I could be given,” says the singer in a statement.  “I remember when the phone rang and I first heard that Black Sabbath wanted me to be their exclusive opening act.  I was really in a state of disbelief -- almost sick with amazement and excitement.”

One Direction Gets New Ink in Maryland

Credit: TMZOne Direction's members are covered in tattoos, but apparently, there's always room for more.  Earlier this week, the boys, who are currently on a U.S. tour, stopped by a tattoo shop in Maryland to get inked.

A posting on Tattooed Heart Studio's Facebook page reads, "Guess who stopped by to get tattooed before they head out to Philadelphia today..." accompanied by a photo of Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik sitting in what looks like a waiting room. 

According to TMZ, Louis and Zayn had specific concepts for their new ink: Zayn wanted the face of his girlfriend -- that's Perrie Edwards of Little Mix -- while Louis wanted a spiderweb design and a bomb.  Liam Payne, who was also there, didn't get any work done.  During the session, TMZ reports that the guys started jonesing for fried chicken, so they sent their bodyguard out to the local KFC to bring back a bucket for them.

Demi Lovato Launches Fund to Help People with Mental Illnesses

Credit: Rankin

Demi Lovato lost her father, Patrick, last weekend.  On Thursday's Good Morning America, the singer revealed that he, like herself, struggled with mental illness.  Now, she's doing something to help others struggling with similar mental health issues.

"I've dealt with mental illnesses, but my father also dealt with mental illness. And he wasn't able to function very well in society," Demi said. "And this week, I'm launching the Lovato Treatment Scholarship Program."

"I'm basically helping one person at a time. I'm going to pay for their treatment. I'm working with Cast Recovery, which is a treatment center that I've worked really really closely with," she continued.

Demi lost her father, who was 53, on June 23.  Though the two were not on speaking terms -- Patrick divorced Demi's mother, Dianna De La Garza -- Demi said her father was a good man.

"My father and I didn't have the most ideal relationship, but at the end of the day he's still my dad and I grew up with him," the 20-year-old said. "And he's a wonderful person."

Professionally, Demi returns as a judge on the upcoming third season of The X Factor, joining executive producer Simon Cowell and newcomers Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio.

"X Factor takes up so much of the year that it doesn't leave me any time to shoot a movie or anything like that," Demi admitted.

The X Factor returns to Fox on September 11.

"Same Love" Rapper Macklemore Cheers Supreme Court Rulings on DOMA & Proposition 8

Facebook.com/Macklemore"Same Love," by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, is a gay rights anthem, so it's no surprise that Macklemore is happy about the Supreme Court decisions on Wednesday that overturned part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and allowed same-sex marriage to become legal in California once again.

In a lengthy statement on his website, Macklemore, who was partially inspired to write "Same Love" because his uncle is gay, writes, "Today is a historic day for civil rights in America...This means that people like my uncles, who have been in a committed relationship for over 20 years, will now receive the same rights that my parents have."

He adds, "Personally, I feel reconnected to my American identity, and am proud of the progress we have made in recent years.  Today gives promise to the hope that we can and will change when our nation isn’t fair and just....It’s a victory...for all who devote their lives to fight for what is constitutionally and ethically right."

However, the rapper cautions that we still "have a long way to go," pointing out that there are still "37 states in our country that must shift legislation on same sex marriage before equality for same-sex couples is reached."  He also notes that "homophobia and intolerance continue to play a strong role in many households, schools, media and religious institutions in our country."

The rapper feels that without addressing those underlying problems, "America’s momentum towards justice will be stagnant and insincere."

He finishes by saying, "We, especially those of us whose rights are secure, are challenged to not sit passively in this crucial moment of cultural progress. True change lives in the minds and hearts of the people that make up our country, and must be cultivated, not mandated. We all have a part to play."

"Same Love" is on track to become Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' third hit, following "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us."

Business WirePink has first major movie role in Thanks for Sharing, a movie about sex addicts that's coming out in September.  And in the just-released trailer, she proves that she can add "acting" to her list of accomplishments, alongside singing, songwriting and selling out arenas worldwide.

It's so...hot!"

Pink's co-stars in the film are pretty impressive: they include Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins, Joely Richardson and Carol KaneThanks for Sharing is due September 13.

The singer has other acting credits to her name.  She voiced the character of Gloria in the animated film Happy Feet Two, appeared as herself in Get Him to the Greek, had tiny roles in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Rollerball, and starred in a 2007 horror flick called Catacombs.

Jay-Z Teases News Song "Oceans"; Unleashes "Magna Carta Holy Grail" Promo Video Plus Tracklist

Facebook.com/Jay-ZSome new promotional videos have surfaced online for Jay-Z's highly-anticipated album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.

With less than a week to go, the rapper has a new piano-driven song that leaked, titled "Oceans," which features, appropriately, Frank Ocean. This marks the second time the artists have collaborated: they previously shared a track for 2011's Watch the Throne.

In the promo clip, Jay tells producer Rick Rubin, “It sounds like a celebration of where we are now on some big yacht, throwing champagne in the water.  But the undertow of the thing is that this is the same water that brought us here originally as slaves, so it has this old duality and how we are rewriting history.”

Earlier in the week, Hov revealed the lyrics to the Justin Timberlake-assisted "Holy Grail," while an Instagram user posted the official track list online after Jay-Z and his Roc Nation label conducted a special scavenger hunt across New York City to find it.

Also, if you download the Jay-Z Magna Carta app in Google Play, you could be one of the million Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Note II owners who'll receive a free copy of Magna Carta Holy Grail, 72 hours before the public can purchase the disc. Visit MagnaCarterHolyGrail.com to learn more.  The album officially arrives July 4.

In related news, Jay-Z and J.T. are scheduled to kick off their “Legends of the Summer” tour on July 17 in Toronto.

Photo: RankinThe Rolling Stones wrapped up the North American leg of their 50 and Counting tour Monday in Washington, D.C., and now the band is heading back to the U.K. to give their first-ever performance at the famed Glastonbury Festival this Saturday.  In advance of the big show, the rock legends have posted a video online featuring Mick Jagger and Keith Richards discussing the event.

In the clip, Jagger reveals that playing the event will give him a chance to spend some quality time with his family.

"All my kids are gonna be there so I'm gonna be visiting them in the days before the actual show," he points out.  "They've got all kinds of activities set up for me to do.  And my brother also…lives there, actually in Glastonbury.  Not in the field, but he lives in Glastonbury."

Richards, meanwhile, notes, "It's almost as if you were, like, finally destined to play Glastonbury.  I mean, there were many years when we were offered it and turned it down, but I look upon it as a culmination of our British heritage, really.  It had to be done and it's gonna be done and we'll see what happens."

Adds Mick, "We look forward to seeing you in Glastonbury."

Glastonbury, which takes place in Piltdon, England, kicked off Wednesday and runs through Sunday.  In addition to The Stones, who'll play a headlining set on Saturday night, the festival will include performances by Elvis Costello, Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings, Steve Winwood, Smashing Pumpkins, Bobby Womack, Kenny Rogers, Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers and dozens of other acts.

Madonna Cheers Supreme Court's Rulings: "Justice Is Served"

Stephen Lovekin/Getty ImagesIt's no surprise that Madonna applauds the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Wednesday that paves the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.

Madonna, who is a longtime gay-rights advocate, writes on Facebook, "What a way to start my day!! I'm wearing a smile from ear to ear. There is a G-D! Justice is served. Hallelujah!!"

In late March, Madonna posted messages on her website and Facebook page calling for a "revolution" promoting marriage equality.  That same month at the GLAAD Media Awards, where she presented an award to Anderson Cooper, she was dressed as a Boy Scout as she denounced the Scouts' anti-gay policy. The Boy Scouts last month voted to end its ban on admitting gay members, though it won't permit gay leaders.

Ludacris Sued for Allegedly Stealing “Sex Room” Lyrics

Ludacris (Island Def Jam)Ludacris is reportedly facing a lawsuit over allegedly stolen lyrics, according to TMZ.

The song in question is Luda's 2010 number “Sex Room” with Trey Songz.  TMZ reports that a Chicago rapper named Marvo claims the hip hop veteran stole the song concept and original lyrics for the baby-making tune, which Marvo says he created back in 2009.

Marvo is accusing the man who produced the cut, Kajun, of having sold the song without his consent.

The song was Luda's third single from his seventh studio album, Battle of the Sexes.  Thanks in part to the Chris Robinson-directed visual for the song, which was inspired by The Hangover film, the track debuted at number five on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart.  It also reached the number 69 slot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. 

Marvo claims he was never compensated,  and is reportedly suing Ludacris and Trey Songz for an unspecified amount.

In related news, Ludacris is currently working on his eighth studio album, Ludaversal, which is expected to arrive sometime in September 2013.
