Monica Shows Off New Hairstyle to Celebrate Forthcoming Album 

Image Courtesy RCA RecordsIt’s been three years since Monica released her last album, New Life, and now she’s changed up her look as she prepares for her comeback album.

The singer showed off a bold, new red haircut to celebrate her seventh studio album, Code Red, which inspired her new style.

"The cut symbolizes me getting back to the fearlessness and courageous part of myself that I shared with the world in the ’90s when I released my first album Miss Thang," Monica shares with People. "It’s easy to over-think things and not trust your natural instincts. I let go and let the music be created in my truth."

Monica's new cut also reflects where she is in her life. "I love that the cover speaks to how I feel as a woman, artist, mother and wife," she explains. "I feel strong, encouraged and grateful. I also love that it’s fashion forward."

Over on Instagram, Monica adds that she's "moving closer to album release... It's an exciting time."

You can expect her eighth solo album to arrive later this year.

Image Courtesy Mark Davis/NBC

Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly may have slipped to #7 on the Billboard 200 chart, but the album has reached a significant milestone. 

According to the publication, the rapper's album has surpassed  500,000 in cumulative sales after moving an additional 29,000 copies in the week. To date, the album has sold 513,000 copies since its surprise release on March 15.

Lamar's project is the seventh album to sell a half-million copies in 2015.  In good news for the record industry, that marks the fastest accumulation of half-million sellers since 2010. So far, K. Dot is only the second rapper to sell more than 500K this year, following Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

"I love Yall. K.I.G. Love," Lamar tweeted to his 4.8 million followers.

Kendrick will get to perform his new material during several upcoming summer gigs, including shows at the U.K.'s Wireless Festival in June, the Essence Music Festival during July 4th weekend and then the Outside Lands Festival in late August.

Dave Grohl Remembers Hearing Metallica for the First Time

Image Courtesy of RecordStoreDay.comFoo Fighters frontman and ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl is the official ambassador of Record Store Day 2015, which takes place this Saturday, April 18.  One Record Store Day release that he's really looking forward to is Metallica's 1982 demo No Life 'til Leather, which the band will be releasing on cassette.  Grohl is quite familiar with the experience of listening to Metallica on cassette, as that's how he heard the band for the first time.

"I bought the first Metallica album on cassette from a mail-order catalog in 1983," Grohl tells Atlanta's Creative Loafing.  "I had never heard of them.  I didn't know anything about them other than they had a cool name, and the description said 'thrash metal.'  I didn't even know what that meant.  I had listened to tons of punk rock music, and I loved Motörhead, but thrash metal?  That sounded scary and cool."

Grohl then sent his money in the mail and received Metallica's debut album, Kill 'Em All, on a cassette tape.

"I will be a diehard Metallica fan until the day I die because of that experience," Grohl says.  "It was like someone had sent me the Holy Grail."

In addition to serving as ambassador, Grohl also will be contributing a special release to Record Store Day: a 10-inch EP called Songs from the Laundry Room, featuring demos of early Foo Fighters singles "Alone + Easy Target" and "Big Me," plus a cover of Kim Wilde's "Kids in America," and a previously unreleased track called "Empty Head."

Foo Fighters also will be performing at the Record Connection in Niles, Ohio, on Record Store Day.  Grohl actually was born around the corner from Niles in Warren, Ohio, where there is a street named Dave Grohl Alley.

Image Courtesy Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert has written and recorded a new song for the upcoming Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara comedy, Hot Pursuit. The song is called "Two of a Crime," and Miranda wrote it after getting a text from Reese asking her to contribute a track to the movie.

She says, "[The movie] was a bit of a Thelma and Louise theme and that’s totally up my alley. It is really so fun to be part of it. It was the first time I wrote a song specifically for a movie, so it was a different experience for me.”

What Made Britney Spears Curse on Stage?

Denise TruscelloWhat made Britney Spears so angry at her Las Vegas residency show Wednesday night? The singer was caught on video dropping a couple of choice words while on stage.

Britney was performing her 2011 single “Till the World Ends,” when something happened that prompted her to say into her microphone: “F**king a**holes!”

TMZ initially reported that Britney was responding to a heckler who called her a “fat b**ch,” but then later backtracked and said that might not have been the case. Sources told TMZ that Britney may have been reacting to a comment someone made in the audience, but they don’t know what was said. TMZ also speculates that she could have been annoyed that the music possibly started late.

Either way, Britney finished out the performance like a pro. Her Piece of Me residency at Planet Hollywood is scheduled to run through September, but there’s a chance it’ll get extended through 2017.

Kanye West Covers Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People

ABC/Randy Holmes

Kanye West is one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, making the annual list honoring the artists, icons, and leaders who are shaping the future. In his wide-ranging interview with TIME, West -- who's also on the issue's cover -- touches on his ego, legacy, and giving back to world.

The rapper speaks candidly about his outspoken nature. "Every time I crash the Internet, it’s like this little drop of truth," West says. "Every time I say something that’s extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet. So what are we getting all of the rest of the time?"

West says he simply just wants to make the world a better place. "I don't care about having a legacy, I don't care about being remembered," he says. "The most important thing to me is, like, while I'm here, while we're having fun, while we're going to sleep, and breathing oxygen and living life and falling in love and having pain and having joy, its like what can I do?"He adds, "We were born into a broken world and we're like the clean-up crew."

Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk pens a tribute to the rapper in the magazine. "Now that he’s a pop-culture juggernaut, he has the platform to achieve just that," writes Musk. "He’s not afraid of being judged or ridiculed in the process. Kanye’s been playing the long game all along, and we’re only just beginning to see why."

Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, is also mentioned among various influential celebrities, including Taylor Swift, President Barack Obama, Kevin HartReese Witherspoon and many others.

Garbage Releases Video for Record Store Day Single, "The Chemicals"

A&E RecordsGarbage will release a new song, "The Chemicals," as a 10-inch single on Record Store Day. Ahead of the song's physical release, the band has unveiled the video for "The Chemicals," which takes place in a sweaty punk club. You can watch "The Chemicals" video now on YouTube.

"We've always been talking about the beauty of small punk clubs," Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson tells Mashable of the video. "We were sort of ruing with the loss of a lot of those clubs that [director] Sophie [Muller] and I grew up in -- that sort of sweaty excitement and the sensuality that comes when you cram people in such a tiny space."

"The Chemicals" also features vocals from Silversun Pickups frontman Brian Aubert, who is known for his high-pitched singing voice.

"When you listen to 'The Chemicals' you can't really tell who's singing what part," Manson says. "Because I'm female, you'd think I was singing the top line, but actually I'm singing the low part. So we just enjoyed playing around with that. It's not often you get to do that with a young vocalist."

"The Chemicals" single will be released on Record Store Day, April 18.

Ed Sheeran Reportedly Wants a Role on "Game of Thrones"

Ben WattsCould Ed Sheeran be coming to Westeros? According to British tabloid The Sun, the singer wants a part on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Ed, who’s a huge fan of the show, will reportedly be “hounding” producers to appear on the show.

“There were talks ages ago of me being an extra, which could have been cool,” The Sun quotes Ed as saying. “But every time they shoot it’s the time I tour in the UK.”

This year, though, the timing might work out. “But I’ve got that time off this year, so I’m going to hound them,” Ed reportedly said.

Music stars have made cameos on the show before, so Ed might have a shot. Coldplay drummer Will Champion and Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody each appeared on the show in 2013.

Last week, Ed was gifted a replica of Jon Snow’s sword by a New Zealand radio station. His excited reaction was captured on video, and he called the sword “one of the best birthday presents” he ever received.

Game of Thrones just debuted its fifth season last Sunday.

Taylor Swift Makes TIME's List of 100 Most Influential People; Receives Praise from Mariska Hargitay

ABC/Lou RoccoFrom her mega-musical success to her unflagging generosity towards fans, it’s no wonder Taylor Swift made TIME magazine’s list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2015.

Mariska Hargitay agrees. The actress penned an essay about Taylor for the magazine, describing the singer’s vast influence and appeal. And it seems only fitting, since Taylor named her cat Olivia Benson, after Mariska’s character on Law & Order: SVU.

“I’m amazed at how much earned wisdom Taylor threads into her work,” the actress writes. “She seems tuned in to the greater good, and she embraces -- thoughtfully and authentically -- the chance to contribute to the world.”

Mariska adds, “I’m always trying to find the best words to talk to my kids (and myself) about growing up, but you can’t top her beautifully articulated advice. The haters are gonna hate, but, well, shake it off. She illuminates our inner music that lets us dance to our own beat.”

Hargitay concludes by saying that she believes the best is yet to come from Taylor. “Along with her staggering list of accomplishments, perhaps the most exciting thing about Taylor is that she’s just getting started with what she plans to mine from her fierce, curious, boundlessly talented and beautiful heart,” Mariska writes. “Also, it doesn’t hurt that she named her cat after me.”

Taylor, in turn, wrote an essay for the magazine about one of its other most influential people: cooking show host Ina Garten. “She shows us how to create memories that we’ll treasure for years to come,” Taylor writes of Ina. “For that, we will always cherish the merry and magnificent Ina Garten.”
