Before she hits the road with DJ Khaled, Demi is taking on smaller venues like the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas where Billboard caught up with her backstage. In an interview, she doubles down on her admiration for Eminem, teases working with an idol and hints at what to expect from her “Tell Me You Love Me” road show.

John Mayer took the stage in Los Angeles for a stop on his Lady Gaga-style “Dive Bar Tour” sponsored by Bud Light. Alessia joined the singer-songwriter for a set of three soulful songs that helped maintain the mellow, laid-back vibes John works so hard to cultivate. Alessia’s silky voice was a perfect match for John’s paper-thin tone as the duo lit up the crowd.
On Instagram, Alessia shared a pic from the set, calling the experience “the bucket list moment of all bucket list moments.” She thanked John “endlessly” for the chance to perform with him. She also tweeted about the experience and John sent a little love her way, too.
Check out the duo’s performance below.

Justin Bieber’s decision to cancel the remainder of his “Purpose World Tour” may have disappointed a few people in his life, but the singer has at least two by his side. After citing “unforeseen circumstances” for the cancellation, singer John Mayer took to Twitter to explain why Justin ending his tour was the best decision, especially given the recent death of Chester Bennington.
Even Justin’s manager Scooter Braun took to Instagram to voice his opinion about his artist cancelling the tour. “That was never our intent. But a man’s soul and well being I truly care about came first and We must all respect and honor that,” he wrote after a series of thank yous. “Now please stop commenting on all my other photos that have nothing to do with this just kidding….but I’m not .”

Miley Cyrus sat down for a cover story with Billboard to announce that her new era is finally dawning. As she prepares to drop a new single on May 11, Miley opened up about her new album, getting back to her country roots and writing music about her boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
“They’re going to talk about me if I come out of a restaurant with Liam,” Miley explains. “So why not put the power back in my relationship and say, ‘This is how I feel?'” That’s why she wrote her new single, “Malibu,” named for the town where the couple has set up a little love nest.
But she opened up, explaining that it wasn’t always a garden of roses for the couple. Miley said that their 2013 breakup happened because change was necessary for her.
Katy Perry left a cryptic post on her Twitter timeline Sunday night. The “Chained To The Rhythm” singer seemed like she was ready to be unshackled in a rhyming tweet that could’ve been a song lyric or subtle message for an ex-boyfriend.
Katy and Orlando Bloom recently split, so maybe the tweet was for a clingy ex. But a recent John Mayer interview where her name got dropped might’ve stirred some old feelings up, as well. Perhaps maybe Katy’s message was for the media?
Or maybe it was song lyrics. Katy’s latest single has a strange mix of the personal and political as she hits out at the current state of America‘s governing bodies.
Check out Katy’s tweet below and see if you can figure it out for yourself.

Shawn Mendes broke some hearts on Thursday night when he announced he had to pull out of the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball stop in San Jose. The last-minute cancellation came on doctor’s orders that prohibited Shawn from performing or traveling.
The bad news might have a silver lining for Shawn though, as he got a shoutout from his role model, John Mayer. John replied to Shawn’s announcement tweet with a joke that would’ve fit right in with the #RoastShawn hashtag. Zedd also sent some love Shawn’s way; however, it was a collaborator that Shawn and Zedd have in common who had to pick up the slack.
Hailee Steinfeld shared a pic of herself headed to San Jose as she stepped in for Shawn. The Chainsmokers took over Shawn’s headlining spot, but Hailee helped fill time for the show.
Check out Shawn’s announcement, John’s joke and more updates from Thursday’s show below.
