32-year-old Scottish DJ Calvin Harris got into a violent car accident in Los Angeles on Friday, causing him to cancel two gigs and to be hospitalised.

A VW Beetle driven by a 16-year-old female crossed the center divider and smashed into Harris’ SUV, ejecting one of the girls from the VW. Harris was a very lucky man as he could have been struck head on if his car had been hit a second earlier.

Harris was taken to a local hospital for a facial laceration and when he was told he couldn’t get a private room, he got off the gurney and left, against medical advice. However, A rep for the DJ says that he was cleared to leave. The girl on the other hand suffered a broken pelvis.

“Adam was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck in a serious collision last night in Los Angeles,” the rep for the DJ mentioned. “He was examined by doctors and sustained a number of injuries. He has since been checked out of hospital and is now recovering. We wish all the other passengers involved in the incident a fast recovery.”

“As a result he was not able to perform in Las Vegas at his OMNIA [nightclub] residency and will be unable to perform tonight at Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama,” the rep added.

Get well soon! Pretty sure his girlfriend Taylor Swift‘s been worried..

Remember how Kina Grannis’ was supposed to perform on September 25 live in Kuala Lumpur for her Elements Tour but it got cancelled for some reason? Well, here’s the REAL reason behind her show cancellations.

The YouTube sensation, together with her husband Jesse Epstein, and Singaporean singer Gentle Bones, were stuck in Indonesia for 100 days after they had their passports confiscated all because their tour promoter, Creon Asia, didn’t manage to secure performance licenses and permits.

Gentle Bones and Epstein were the opening acts for Grannis on her Asia tour, but complications arose during their show in Jakarta on September 16. Grannis details in a post on her official website that immigration officials walked onto the stage and took their passports with no explanations given. That was only the beginning of their nightmare..

When they were interrogated, they learned that Creon Asia failed to get them their performance licenses and permits, and as a result of playing their concert, they committed visa fraud which is punishable by a $35,000 fine per person and 5 years in prison.

After three and a half months of an agonising wait for their fate and the emotional plus physiological challenges that come with the frustrations of not being able to work or missing everything back at home, they were finally released to go back home on December 23 2015. You may read Grannis’ FULL account of the story on her official website.

We can only imagine the horror Grannis and the others have gone through, but we’re SO GLAD it’s finally been resolved. We cannot comprehend how strong and courageous you guys are!

Drake recently stopped by The Ellen Show and talked about a lot of things. The singer/rapper has been really busy promoting his brand new album, Views, and was recently seen hosting Saturday Night Live, which he did a stellar job with.

On The Ellen Show, Drake played a game of “Never Have I Ever” with Jared Leto, and also got scared the hell out of by a man that Ellen had dressed up as Drake. Ellen then asked the pressing question about his relationship with Rihanna. Watch the video below to find out what Drake has to say about his relationship with Rihanna.

Sad news for Kesha fans! The singer will not be performing at this year’s Billboard Music Awards after Dr. Luke’s label Kemosabe Record rescinded its initial approval to allow her to perform. Kesha was very looking forward to participate in the Bob Dylan tribute at the Billboard Awards.

“I’m very sad and sorry to say I won’t be allowed to do this,” Kesha said in an Instagram post. “I just wanted to make very clear that this performance was about me honoring one of my favorite songwriters of all time and has never had anything at all to do with Dr. Luke.”
Lady Gaga is one of the celebrities who has spoken out on Twitter, saying that we want her (Kesha) voice back.

Kesha has been struggling in a legal battle to try and get released from her contract with Kemosabe Records and its parent company, Sony Music Entertainment. She was allegedly drugged, emotionally abused and sexually assaulted by her former producer, Dr. Luke.

You gotta love Christina Aguilera, tiny little lady with a massive voice that will make you weak at the knees when she sings. She’s all talent, sass and also, adorable impressions!

While on The Ellen Show recently, the pop singer and judge of The Voice played a little bit of Heads Up with the talk show host. To test her talent, Ellen got Christina to do impressions of Rihanna, Adele and Whitney Houston, just to name a few.

We especially loved when she had to sing a Rihanna song. Watch below for more:

American rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers was forced to cancel their Irvine, California concert as singer Anthony Kiedis was rushed to the hospital due to an “extreme stomach pain”.

A cell phone video taken by a member of the audience showed bassist Flea explaining to the crowd that they were “unable to play this evening” because Kiedis, 53, was “on his way to the hospital right now.”

“We are devastated about it, we’re really sad, we love you so much,” Flea said.

“Unfortunately, there’s a medical thing that happened and he needed to deal with it,” Flea said in the short clip.

Kiedis was taken from the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater, where the band was supposed to perform, to the hospital. He has been the band’s frontman since it formed in 1983.

Drummer Chad Smith also tweeted on Saturday he was hoping for his bandmate’s “speedy recovery”.

Get well soon! :(

Justin Bieber Is No Longer Taking Photos With His Fans http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/122114/justin-bieber-is-no-longer-taking-photos-with-his-fans http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/122114/justin-bieber-is-no-longer-taking-photos-with-his-fans#respond Fri, 13 May 2016 02:00:24 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=122114

There is no doubt about it: Justin Bieber is a big, big, star and wherever he goes, he’s swarmed by paparazzi and fans, which we guess is what comes with being famous. A lot of stars are okay with this but Justin Bieber is no longer one of them.

In an Instagram post, Bieber goes on to say that if a fan sees him out about, they should know that he will not take a picture with them. The singer goes on to say that he’s done with taking pictures and feels like a zoo animal as people don’t even say hi and or recognise him as a human.

This sounds a little similar to when Bieber cancelled all his future meet and greets, which disappointed a lot of fans that paid quite the sum of money to see the pop star in person.

While we sort of understand Bieber’s predicament, we cannot help but wonder, doesn’t taking pictures with fans (who made you famous) come with the superstardom that you’ve asked for?

What do you guys think?

This professor form the University of Texas decided to write a song to explain to his students about why learning and mastering Microsoft Excel is so important in life, and he chose to do it with Justin Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’.

Not only is this cover witty, hilarious, and super-adorable, and it actually made us want to start learning excel! If only we all had a teacher like this in high school.

Go ahead, watch it, show it to your kids– you can even sing along because he has the lyrics on a presentation in the background. By the way, we are so jealous of all of you in his class!

French Band M83 Electrified 1,500 People At KL Live http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/121939/m83-electrified-1500-people-at-kl-live http://www.lipstiq.com/2016/121939/m83-electrified-1500-people-at-kl-live#respond Thu, 12 May 2016 02:46:29 +0000 http://www.lipstiq.com/?p=121939

With an impressive track record like Coachella, Lollapalooza and St. Jerome’s Laneway, it’s little wonder why M83, the French electronic music band was one of the most anticipated bands at Urbanscapes 2016. And it was just as good as you’d imagine it to be!

Gonzalez and his fellow band members, Jordan Lawlor, Ian Young, Kaela Sinclair (keyboard), and Loic Maurin (drums), belted out all their anticipated hits like ‘Steve McQueen’, ‘Wait’, ‘Do It, Try It’, and of course, ‘Midnight City’.

There wasn’t much interaction with the crowd–but not that it mattered–the bewildered crowd at KL Live was busy cheering, jumping, and singing along, relishing every second of M83 on stage.

While Gonzalez and Lawlor kept the crowd occupied, saxophonist Ian Young stole the show whenever he played, his solos were intense and exuded so much passion. Sinclair wowed everyone with her haunting vocals while her fingers ran relentlessly on the keyboard, and Maurin showed us his prowess as a drummer.

The band ended on a high, with exquisite neon lightings that were just the perfect ending to a hypnotising night.

M83 was brought exclusively by Urbanscapes and their long-time partner, Tiger Beer.

“Tiger Beer has always supported arts and music, and we are happy to return to fulfil our long-standing partnership with Urbanscapes.” said Tiger Beer marketing manager Jessie Chuah.

Well, guys, keep bringing down these epic bands, we sure can’t wait for the next round of Urbanscapes!
