Halsey Joins Zedd’s ACLU Benefit Show

Halsey Is Joining Zedd's ACLU Benefit Show featureHalsey is one of several big names that have been announced for a new benefit show. Organized by Zedd, the show will benefit the American Civil Liberties Union, which has been working overtime to challenge President Donald Trump’s executive orders like the Muslim Ban. Zedd has put together a lineup that also features Tinashe, Daya, Skrillex and more.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t get some of the stars he originally tried to recruit. While Macklemore is on board, Zedd couldn’t get Camila Cabello, who has written about her own experience as a member of an immigrant family, for the show despite reaching out publicly.

The concert is called “Welcome!” and tagged as “Phase 1,” hinting that there could be more phases coming soon. The first one will happen on April 3 at the Staples Center in L.A.

See the official poster for the show below.

Shawn Mendes Cancels Jingle Ball Performance And Gets Consoled By John Mayer

Shawn Mendes Gets A Shoutout From John Mayer After He Cancels Jingle Ball ShowShawn 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.

At Least Ariana Grande Knows At Least One Person Is Still Listening To “Side To Side”

Zedd is loving Ariana Grande's song-2Ariana Grande’s may have dropped a spot on Billboard’s “Hot 100″ chart, but that doesn’t mean “Side to Side” isn’t a hit is some people’s eyes. Zedd took to Twitter on Tuesday to express just how much he loves Ariana’s duet with Nicki Minaj.

Zedd and Ariana previously collaborated with one another back in 2014 when they released “Break Free” off of the “My Everything” album. Unlike “Side to Side’s” number 31 debut, the 2014 single had a much better chart run peaking at number four.

See just how Zedd feels about “Side to Side” below.
