ABC/Randy HolmesAll the kids on Lady Antebellum’s You Look Good World Tour seem to be in love with Kelsea Ballerini.

Earlier, Hillary Scott told ABC Radio she thinks her daughter Eisele really believes Kelsea is a Disney princess. Tuesday morning, Charles Kelley shared an adorable video of his son Ward, transfixed as he watched his dad’s opening act sing her latest hit, “Legends,” on ABC's Good Morning America.

“Cheering on his first crush @Kelsea Ballerini on @GMA this morning!” Charles added. In the clip, the Lady A singer repeatedly tries to get his son’s attention, but the toddler refuses to look away from the TV screen. He eventually acquiesces and says, “Kelsea!”

“He’s getting all the cheek kisses when he’s back on the road,” Kelsea replied.

Kelsea, Lady A and Brett Young will be back together again Thursday as they trek through Jacksonville, Tampa and West Palm Beach, Florida this week.

Julia Michaels flirts with a cute boy in “Uh Huh” video

Meredith TruaxJulia Michaels has released the flirtatious new music video for her song, “Uh Huh.”

The video starts with Julia getting to know a cute boy. The two flirt and laugh as he compliments her tattoos and quizzes her about her life.

The rest of the clip alternates between Julia and the guy being playful with one another -- they dance around and even swap clothes at one point -- and Julia writhing around on a bed as she sings about not being able to control her emotions.  

"I think you're movin' in too close/But I think that it's my body wanting it the most, like UH HUH/I don't know what it is I feel/But I know it's my emotions going in for the kill, like UH HUH," she sings on the chorus.

The song is the follow up to Julia's smash hit, “Issues.” She'll release a seven-song mini-album titled Nervous System on July 28.

Is Tinashe being stalked by a crazed fan? 

ABC/Randy HolmesTinashe could have a dangerously obsessed fan on her hands.

TMZ reports that the "Flame" singer is so "petrified" of an alleged fan named Martin Murphy, who reportedly drove all the way to Los Angeles from Boston to meet the star, that she's gotten a restraining order against him. 

Murphy is allegedly "convinced" that he and Tinashe are married.  

Now, according to TMZ, the recording artist is in fear of her life because he's working to have his Massachusetts license to carry a firearm reinstated. 

TMZ also says Murphy's dad is actively helping to keep his son away from Tinashe, stating that Murphy "suffered a psychotic break and is unable to distinguish reality from fantasy."

Murphy's father reportedly believes that Tinashe in "in clear danger," so a judge has ordered the 25-year-old to stay "at least 100 yards" away from the performer and her parents.

Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst remembers his longtime friend, Chester Bennington

ABC/Randy HolmesLimp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has shared his remembrances of his late friend, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. In a piece written for Variety, Durst recalls when Linkin Park opened for Limp Bizkit for their first European show.

"I remember seeing them on the side of the stage and as were performing, I was thinking to myself, 'Chester's voice is going to blow these kids the f*** up,'" says Durst. "It was a great moment and I'm happy now to have had it."

Durst also remembers Bennington's "way of making anyone he spoke to feel heard, understood and significant," as well as his "contagious and empowering" spirit.

In the last conversation the pair had together, Durst says Bennington gave him "the most selfless and motivational compliments in regards to Limp Bizkit and myself and thanking me for paving the path for bands like Linkin Park.

"In return, I told him if it weren't for him and his voice and his words, this genre would never have reached the masses and affected so many lives," says Durst. "I thanked him for being so courageous and humble and for always being such a gentleman. We laughed and hugged and told jokes as if there would always be a tomorrow for us to meet again.

"I want to hug him now and let him know that we all experience our own pain and deal with it our own ways," Durst concludes. "I know his torture is unique to him, but I would always be here to listen and help in any way I can. But I won’t get that hug and that moment now, which makes me so sad."

Bennington died by suicide last Thursday, July 20. He was 41.

"Hybrid Theory" producer remembers working with Chester Bennington: "He was such a huge force vocally" 

ABC/Randy HolmesProducer Don Gilmore worked with Linkin Park on the band's enormous debut album, Hybrid Theory. In an interview with Billboard, Gilmore remembers when he first met the band and their frontman, the late Chester Bennington.

"He was just a nice young kid," Gilmore says of Bennington. "The whole band were nice guys. In my opinion, in that first rehearsal he overshadowed the whole band; he was such a huge force vocally that it got me really excited about the project and it made me want to work with them really bad."

"As a producer, you're always looking for special things that kind of stick out and are extraordinary, because sometimes it can take just an ordinary record -- maybe it has good songs and it sounds good and maybe you're fine," Gilmore continues. "But when you can marry all that with something like Chester's singing, then it's just unstoppable.'

Gilmore would go on to produce Linkin Park's sophomore album, Meteora. Before he worked with them, Gilmore did engineering work on Temple of the Dog's first and only album, furthering the eerie connection between Bennington and Chris Cornell.

"I've maybe had four or five times in the studio that I got goose bumps, literally like shivers, and one of them was with Chester, for sure," says Gilmore. "And oddly enough, one of them is Chris Cornell, when I recorded Chris on the Temple of the Dog record."

Bennington died by suicide last Thursday, July 20, which would've been the late Cornell's 53rd birthday.

Justin Bieber apologizes to fans for canceling tour; John Mayer commends him

Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images via ABCIs it too late now to say sorry? Justin Bieber is doing it anyway.

TMZ cameras caught up with Justin following his tour cancellation announcement, and he had an apologetic message for fans.

"I love you guys, I think you guys are awesome,” he says, addressing the fans. “I'm sorry for anyone who feels, like, disappointed or betrayed, it's not in my heart or anything, and have a blessed day."

As for why he cancelled, Justin says everything is fine, he just needs some rest and relaxation after being on the road for over a year -- his Purpose world tour kicked off March 9, 2016.

John Mayer, meanwhile, came to Justin’s defense and commended his decision.

“When someone pulls remaining dates of a tour, it means they would have done real damage to themselves if they kept going,” John tweeted, adding, “We've lost so many great artists lately. I give Justin [two thumbs up] for realizing it was time to call it. You should too.”

Justin announced Monday he was canceling the Purpose tour with just 14 dates remaining.

Is one of Usher's accusers seeking more money in STD scandal? 

ABC/Fred WatkinsMonday, attorney Lisa Bloom claimed three women reached out to her for legal help against Usher, alleging the R&B singer infected them with the herpes virus.  

Now, one of the singer's accusers is reportedly seeking $20 million "for emotional harm, medical bills and punitive damages," according to TMZ. The unidentified woman previously sought $10 million from the entertainer.  

The woman, presently identified as Jane Doe, claims that she went to get tested for herpes after legal documents from 2012 surfaced last week, which allege Usher knowingly infected another woman with the sexually transmitted disease without telling her.  

That individual subsequently sued the recording artist and was awarded $1.1 million from him at the time.   

When news of Usher's 2012 scandal came to light last week, he began to trend on social media, though he still has yet to publicly respond.  

However, ex-wife Tameka Foster, replied to the scandal on Instagram last week, letting everyone know that the alleged lawsuit has "NOTHING" to do with her and that she's in good health. 

Usher and Tameka divorced in 2009. They share two sons: Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.

In 2015, Usher married music executive Grace Miguel
