A number of her fellow University of North Carolina students came to her defense and suggested a boycott of the pub, so they fired the DJ and vowed to never play the song again.

TUESDAY'S MUSIC NEWS:

Ed Sheeran has announced the dates for his upcoming North American tour. It kicks off August 22nd in Seattle, and he’ll be at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland September 4th. SEE TOUR DATES IN THE LEFT COLUMN.

Ed Sheeran debuted new music from his forthcoming sophomore album on Saturday Night Live this weekend, including, "Sing," the lead single from his upcoming album, "X." The other song was “Don’t,” a song he told Rolling Stone was about a fellow musician he used to date who ended up cheating on him. He insists it’s not about pal and touring partner Taylor Swift, and the rumor is that it’s about Ellie Goulding. Taylor was there with Ed, and she turned up during the opening monologue. 

Leonard Nimoy popped in while Ed Sheeran was recording tracks for his new album with Pharrell Williams. Pharrell tried to get TV’s Mr. Spock to do some vocal work in the studio, but he refused. Ed is a huge movie buff and was stunned to be hanging out with Leonard Nimoy.

Katy Perry attended this weekend's Coachella music festival, and took to Twitter to comment on some of the trends she saw there.  In one tweet, she referred to selfies as "a disease." Katy also commented on the amount of people she saw wearing "flower garlands" in their hair and the number of times she'd heard her fellow festival-goers say the word "literally."

Lorde called the Coachella music festival 'mental' when she hit the stage on Saturday. She performed on day two of the iconic event, which held for two weekends in Indio, California. Met with huge cheers and one of the biggest audiences of the afternoon when she began her set as the sun went down, Lorde was the first to admit her astonishment. The second biggest act of the day was Pharrell, who hit the stage right after Lorde, and during a dust storm, no less.

Nintendo has signed Christina Aguilera for the Tamodachi Life series, which will get its American launch in early June. Tamodachi, which means "friend" in Japanese, allows players to meet, get to know, and take part in all sorts of activities with their favorite stars. In Christina's game, players will be able to join her in a sing-off, perform a song with lyrics that they have written -- and maybe even dish some dirt about her former colleagues on The Voice.

Justin Bieber skipped his latest court date yesterday, leaving his lawyers to handle the situation. This hearing was for the assault charges he faces after supposedly attacking his limo driver on December 30th, 2013. The Biebz isn't expected to make an appearance until a trial date, which reportedly won't be set until the fall.

Taylor Swift crashed a bridal shower in Columbus over the weekend to surprise bride-to-be Gena Gabrielle. Taylor showed up unannounced with a hoard of kitchen gadgets, including a standup mixer and a Le Creuset pot. The two connected at several meet-and-greets, and Gena mentioned to Taylor in September that she was tying the knot this spring.

Longtime animal rights advocate Joan Jett is appealing to lawmakers in Rhode Island to outlaw the use of bullhooks by elephant trainers, alleging the practice in inhumane treatment.
 
Miley Cyrus's mom surprised her daughter with a new puppy to replace the dog she grew up with, after he died earlier this month. But cute little Moonie wasn't enough to heal Miley's broken heart, so she gave the pup away. She tweeted that it’s just too soon for her right now. She also said she was too scared to have a tiny dog. She hasn't revealed the details of Floyd's death, but some reports suggest he was attacked by a coyote.

Ariana Grande most certainly got some of her Twitter followers in a panic after sending out a bewildering tweet Monday that began with this: “I just had a bone taken out of my skull how’s ur day?” After grabbing everyone’s attention with that mystifying message, Grande went on to explain that she’d just had her wisdom tooth pulled.
 
The Bon Jovi classic “Lay Your Hands On Me” has been covered by country queen Dolly Parton for her forthcoming album Blue Smoke, due May 13. Parton explained that the lyrics sounded like a gospel tune, so she called Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora to ask if they’d be opposed for her turning it into a gospel tune.

Muse is diving back into the studio to begin recording the follow up to their 2012 set The 2nd Law. During a radio interview following their Coachella set over the weekend, drummer Dominic Howard said they’ll be back in the studio next month, and recording later in the year for an album sometime next year.

Despite now being an official full-fledged member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, KISS singer/guitarist Paul Stanley is not finished firing off insults at the very officials who finally voted him in. On Sunday, Stanley took to Twitter to call out Hall of Fame co-founder Jann Wenner and his cohorts, alleging the band members were treated like “uninvited guests” at last Thursday’s induction ceremony. Stanley was angry at the fact that the band allegedly was not provided with unspecified passes or a schedule for the evening’s festivities. Although they did not perform at the induction ceremony, the following night, the four current members lit up The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, with one song on TV and another four songs available in a web-exclusive performance.

Justin Bieber popped up unannounced onstage in front of the less-than-pop-friendly crowd at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California over the weekend. He jumped onstage with Chance the Rapper to perform “Confident,” their collaboration from last December. Other surprises include Beyonce joining her sister Solange for a choreographed dance, Jay Z rapping a verse during a set from Nas, and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani performing an impromptu version of “Hollaback Girl” at the invitation of Pharrell Williams, who introduced her as the most “awesome, rad girl in the world.” The reunited Outkast closed day-one of the three day festival.

Life and Style magazine says Selena Gomez was on the scene late last year when Justin Bieber had a major scare after overdosing on cough syrup, plus too much pot and alcohol. His friends put him in cold water to revive him. Then they made him throw up. Selena is scheduled to testify on April 23rd.
 
Parade magazine’s “What People Earn” issue includes a long list of music stars who broke the bank last year, and here are some of the biggest names and numbers: Miley Cyrus ($76.5 million), Justin Timberlake ($63M), Beyonce ($57M), and Bruno Mars ($38M).

Bruce Springsteen's website now has a professionally shot video of his performance of Lorde's "Royals." He did the song on March 2nd in Auckland, New Zealand, which is Lorde's home town.

Recently released reports claim the CIA used Red Hot Chili Peppers music during so-called enhanced interrogation sessions with detainees at Guantanamo Bay. When informed that U.S. officials confirmed the techniques were used by the Bush administration following 9/11, RHCP drummer Chad Smith told TMZ, “Our music is positive. It’s supposed to make people feel good, so that’s very upsetting to me. I don’t like that at all.” He went on to say, “You shouldn’t be doing any of that s**t. It’s horrible. I just ate; I don’t want to, like, throw up.”
 
The vast majority of women pushing 70 years old wouldn’t be caught dead wearing little more than pasties in public, but Cher is no ordinary woman. The 67-year old music icon had no problem strutting onstage wearing a revealing outfit accentuated by red heart-shaped nipple pasties at her “Dressed To Kill” tour stop in Boston last week.

FRIDAY'S MUSIC NEWS:

The 29th Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies took place Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Nine acts were inducted overall. The E Street Band was inducted by their frontman Bruce Springsteen. They performed three Springsteen tracks, "Kitty's Back," "The River" and "The E Street Shuffle." KISS was inducted by Tom Morello.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic played Nirvana songs for the first time in 20 years with all female singers: Joan Jett on "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon on "Aneurysm," St. Vincent's Annie Clark for "Lithium" and Lorde on "All Apologies." Peter Gabriel was inducted by Coldplay's Chris Martin. Gabriel performed "Digging in the Dirt," "In Your Eyes" and with Martin, and "Washing in the Water." Linda Ronstadt was inducted by Glenn Frey. She didn't travel to the induction because of her her battle with Parkinson's disease.

On the Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday, Pharrell Williams talked about women’s equality, asking, “What is it like 73 cents to a man’s dollar? Like what is that?

Demi Lovato tore into popular website The Daily Beast for tearing into her boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. The website claimed the once-popular Valderrama is “so culturally irrelevant he relies on the commodification of his young girlfriend’s body in order to re-enter the current celebrity conversation.” Lovato later tweeted: “@thedailybeast such a classy ‘news site’ you are. Writing horrible things about people you know NOTHING about. Get a LIFE you ignorant f**ks.”

Miley Cyrus is on the cover of yet another magazine this month. But she's not happy about turning up on the cover of Seventeen. She didn't even do an interview with the mag, because her handlers see it as too "young" for her new image. Because of Miley's unwillingness to participate, the May edition will include stock photos of her as well as a story using anonymous sources.

How about considering that Taylor also managed to sell out all of the other stops on her upcoming leg in Asia as well.
