Tabloid reports claim that Miley Cyrus is in talks to appear at Glastonbury Festival 2016. The pop singer has experienced a busy week, hosting the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night and releasing new album 'Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz' shortly after. Now, The Sun reports that there are "initial plans, which are in very early stages" for Cyrus to perform at Worthy Farm next year. "Miley's been on the Eavis radar for a while," a source allegedly told the newspaper. "She's outrageous and there was interest in previous years, around the time of her 'Bangerz' tour last year and when her godmother Dolly Parton played the Pyramid [Stage]." NME approached a press representative from the festival who refused to offer any comment on the reports. Jordan Hughes/NME At last weekend's MTV VMAs, Nicki Minaj called Miley Cyrus a "bitch" after Cyrus had previously spoken to the New York Times about Minaj's recent beef with Taylor Swift, saying that it was "not very polite" of Minaj. Cyrus was quoted as saying, "What I read sounded very Nicki Minaj, which, if you know Nicki Minaj is not too kind. It’s not very polite." When Minaj's 'Anaconda' won the Best Hip-Hop video award, she said: "And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what's good?" Cyrus proceeded to suggest that her remarks had been taken out of context, but Minaj seemed to reject Cyrus' excuses.

Prince has expressed his admiration for rappers Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, despite recently claiming that it's currently a "bad time for music in general". Earlier this week, the singer was asked for his thoughts on artists such as Tame Impala, The Weeknd and Miguel being influenced by his work. Prince replied: "There might be music that sounds like me, but what good is that? You're essentially in the feedback loop. It's a bad time for music in general. There's not a lot of pop music in the mainstream that makes you feel scared, that makes you wonder what's happening." In a new interview with Medium, however, he revealed that he's a fan of Lamar and his recent 2015 album 'To Pimp A Butterfly'. "He just has something to say," said the singer. "It's pure. And with Thundercat on the album? Come on. You're not taking 'Alright' off my playlist!" Prince also praised Kanye West's song 'Gold Digger' and its sampling of Ray Charles, adding: "The way he made something new with that sample was perfect." Getty Prince, who also praised Jill Scott's LP 'A Long Walk' because "every song on that first album was the truth", went on to add: "But we have to make sure that young people also get to understand the masters. It’s like when I played Sly Stone to Lianne La Havas… she had not ever heard him yet. Then she listened and was totally inspired." Prince is set to release new LP ‘The Hit & Run Album’ with his band 3rdEyeGirl via Tidal in September. It is his 35th studio record. He also released two albums in 2014, 'Plectrumelectrum' with 3rdEyeGirl and the solo LP 'Art Official Age'. You can hear a track from the album, 'This Could B Us', below.

Mark Ruffalo has revealed that his character, Hulk, has been cut from Captain America: Civil War. Last month the actor was spotted partying in Berlin, where the superhero sequel is now being shot, with three of its co-stars, Chris Evans, Daniel Brühl and Anthony Mackie. Inevitably, this sparked rumours that Hulk could be making a previously unannounced appearance in the film. However, Ruffalo has now dismissed these suggestions in an interview with Italian outlet Bad Taste, saying that in fact, Hulk's role has been sliced from the script. Ruffalo is quoted as saying - in a translation from an interview originally published in Italian: "The reason is too great to be revealed in this movie. I was in the script but then they removed my character. They don't want to reveal where is he and why. I don't even know if Hulk will be back soon." Press Whether or not Hulk is involved, Captain America: Civil War boasts a massive cast of Marvel favourites. Alongside Chris Evans' Captain America, characters confirmed to appear in the superhero sequel include Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man, Paul Rudd's Ant-Man, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow, Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany's The Vision and Don Cheadle's War Machine, as well as Captain America regulars such as Sebastian Stan's Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie's Falcon, Frank Grillo's Crossbones and Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter. Meanwhile, the new Spider-Man played by British actor Tom Holland will make his debut in Captain America: Civil War, which is set for release on May 6, 2016. Daniel Brühl will play supervillain Baron Zemo, William Hurt is reprising his role as General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross from 2008's The Incredible Hulk and Sherlock's Martin Freeman has been cast in a currently unspecified role. Marvel's official plot synopsis teases: "Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age Of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. "After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain."

Sam Smith has again denied rumours that has contributed the theme song for upcoming James Bond film, Spectre. Spectre is the 24th Bond film and opens in the UK and Ireland on October 26, the same day as its world premiere. Smith recently distanced himself from ongoing speculation that he would be performing the theme, saying he had heard Ellie Goulding was recording the song. Now, the singer has told BBC Radio 2's Jo Whiley that he's "definitely not" working on the project. "That's not me. That's definitely not me," he said. Smith continued, "I've still got loads to do, I've got an Australia tour, but I kind of finish in December which is great, it gives me a chance to be in London, be in my home and go out with my friends." Press Radiohead recently become the surprise bookies' favourites to record the theme following an anonymous £15,000 bet being placed on the likelihood of them performing the track. Idris Elba has also responded to Bond author Anthony Horowitz's recent comments claiming he is "too street" to play the iconic secret agent. The Luther actor has repeatedly been tipped to succeed Daniel Craig as 007, but Horowitz, who has written latest Bond novel Trigger Mortis, commissioned by the estate of Bond's creator Ian Fleming, insisted that he is not well-suited to the part. "For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part," Horowitz said in a recent interview. "It's not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah." Horowitz has since apologised to Elba, writing: "Clumsily, I chose the word 'street' as Elba's gritty portrayal of DCI John Luther was in my mind, but I admit it was a poor choice of word. I am mortified to have caused offence." Elba has now shared his thoughts on Horowitz's comments on Instagram, posting a screenshot of one of the many "too street" headlines with the caption: "Always Keep Smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the street!!"

Model and actress Emily Ratajkowski has discussed her appearance in Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' video, the role that saw her rise to prominence. Ratajkowski appeared in the clip, which garnered much press attention, in 2013, before later appearing in David Fincher film Gone Girl last year, as well as Zac Efron's new EDM movie We Are Your Friends. Speaking to InStyle Magazine recently, Ratajkowski said that she "wasn’t into the idea [of the 'Blurred Lines' video] at all at first", adding that she "came off as a bit annoyed in the video". She added, "Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about 'Blurred Lines', I'm like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?" Ratajkowski also spoken about the amount of nudity in the clip, saying, "It's weird to me that the reaction to a woman’s naked body is so controversial in our culture." "My mum taught me to never apologise for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don’t think I’ve ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body." Meanwhile, a judge recently rejected Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams' appeal for a retrial following the ruling that the pair had plagiarised Marvin Gaye while writing 'Blurred Lines'. In March, a US jury decided that the 2013 song had copied Gaye's 1977 single 'Got To Give It Up', pointing out the "intrinsic similarity of the works".

Hot Chip have remixed Florence + The Machine's track 'Queen Of Peace'. The electronic band have shared their reworked version of the song, which is taken from Florence + The Machine's most recent album 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'. Florence recently unveiled a video for the track. The 'Queen Of Peace' video was produced by long-time Florence collaborator Vincent Haycock, and filmed on the tiny island of Easdale in the Inner Hebrides, which has a population of less than 100 and an area of just 62 acres. Listen to the Hot Chip remix below. Hot Chip released their sixth album 'Why Make Sense?' in May of this year. In an interview with NME, vocalist Joe Goddard spoke about his enjoyment working with his fellow bandmates. "I don't think I've ever questioned [the future of the band]," he said, before jokingly adding, "although, if I had some enormo mega-hit outside of Hot Chip, I'd obviously leave the band and pursue that". Hot Chip are currently scheduled to tour the UK in October. They will play the following dates: Bristol O2 Academy (October 13) Portsmouth Pyramid Centre (14) Glasgow Barrowland (16) Manchester Albert Hall (17) Leeds Beckett University (18) Nottingham Rock City (20) Cambridge Corn Exchange (21) London O2 Brixton Academy (22) Florence + The Machine are set to play the inaugural Apple Music Festival, a relaunched version of its long-running iTunes Festival in London, later this month.

Afroman, best known for his 2000 hit 'Because I Got High', has been ordered to attend anger management sessions following an incident at a live show where he punched a female fan. The singer was arrested for assault earlier this year (February 17) for lashing out at a woman who got onstage during his free Mardi Gras concert in Mississippi. Afroman (real name Joseph Edgar Foreman) was playing his guitar when she approached him from behind and danced against him, at which point he turned around and punched her with his right hand. Watch the incident in the video beneath. Foreman pleaded guilty to the assault of the woman, Haley Byrd, and has been given a suspended six-month jail sentence and ordered to attend anger management and impulse behaviour counselling sessions. He has also been fined $330 (£216). The musician later claimed that he thought the stage invader was a man who kept heckling him throughout his performance. "It was an early show. It was Mardi Gras," Afroman told TMZ at the time. "I had to walk about half a mile to get to the place. I had my frustrations, to make a long story short." The rapper also tweeted: "It is what it is." Last year, Afroman released a remix of his weed-themed novelty song 'Because I Got High' in support of the legalisation of marijuana. The song was originally released 15 years ago.

Apple have admitted they have "a bit of homework to do" on Apple Music in order to improve the streaming service. In an interview with the Guardian, iTunes Vice President Oliver Schusser said that the company is working on making changes to the service, which launched at the end of June along with Apple's 24/7 radio station Beats 1. "There's a lot of work going into making the product better," said Schusser. "Our focus is on editorial and playlists, and obviously we have teams all around the world working on that, but we're also adding features and cleaning up certain things." He added: "Apple Music Connect is growing big time with more and more artists connecting to their fans, but we still have a bit of homework to be done for the rest of the year." Press When asked about criticisms of the service, Schusser responded: "The product is always our priority, and we are getting a lot of feedback. Remember, this was a very big launch in 110 markets instantly, so we get a ton of feedback. We're obviously trying to make it better every day." It was revealed last month (August 8) that 11 million people had signed up for Apple Music's free trial since its launch. Its main rival Spotify currently has 75 million active users, with 20 million using its premium service. Other competitors include Deezer (16 million active users and six million subscribers), Rhapsody/Napster (three million subscribers) and Tidal (770,000 subscribers). Yesterday, meanwhile, a batch of new names were added to this year's Apple Music Festival line-up. The Weeknd, Take That and The Chemical Brothers were added to the bill, joining the likes of Florence And The Machine, Disclosure and One Direction on the line-up for the inaugural Apple event, which is a relaunched version of its long-running iTunes Festival in London.

Chrissie Hynde has defended her recent controversial comments on rape victims. The Pretender singer has come under fire recently after she seemingly suggested that it is a rape victim's own fault if they are "putting it about and being provocative", but in a new interview with The Washington Post, Hynde has described her stance as "common sense". In her forthcoming book Reckless, Hynde recalls an incident of sexual abuse she experienced when she was 21. Detailing the event, which saw members of a motorcycle gang rape her in an abandoned house, she wrote: "Now let me assure you that, technically speaking, however you want to look at it, this was all my doing and I take full responsibility... You can't fuck about with people, especially people who wear 'I heart rape' and 'on you knees' badges." Getty Speaking to the Sunday Times in a subsequent interview, she added: "If I'm walking around and I'm very modestly dressed and I'm keeping to myself and someone attacks me, then I'd say that's [the attacker's] fault. But if I'm being very lairy and putting it about and being provocative, then you are enticing someone who is already unhinged - don't do that. Come on! That's just common sense." When The Washington Post read back her comments to her, Hyde responded: "Sounds like common sense … If you don’t want my opinion, don’t ask me for it." She added: "At the moment, we’re in one of the worst humanitarian crises in our lifetime. [You see that picture of] a Turkish policeman carrying the body of a 3-year-old boy who got washed up on the shore. These are the heartbreaking images we have and we’re talking about millions of displaced persons and people whose families have been destroyed and we’re talking about comments that I allegedly made about girls in their underwear." When Hynde was told by Post journalist Geoff Edgers that her remarks had made him feel uncomfortable because he has a daughter, meanwhile, she replied: "I know, but most people aren’t as stupid as me. I wouldn’t expect most people to do some of the stuff I did. But then again, most people don’t get to be a rock star, either. "We have to walk the plank. I don’t think that’s a sign of intelligence, I don’t know what it is a sign of. I’m not saying I was asking for it. It wasn’t the same as walking down a street in the middle of a nice evening and somebody dragging you into a bush with a knife in your throat." Hynde's comments have been criticised by anti-sexual violence charities. Lucy Hastings, director of the charity Victim Support, said, "Victims of sexual violence should never feel or be made to feel that they were responsible for the appalling crime they suffered – regardless of circumstances or factors which may have made them particularly vulnerable." "They should not blame themselves or be blamed for failing to prevent an attack – often they will have been targeted by predatory offenders who are responsible for their actions. It is critical that nothing deters victims of sexual violence from coming forward to the police or to independent organisations so they can get the help and support they need."

Janet Jackson has shared the title track from her new album 'Unbreakable'. The LP, which will be the singer's 11th studio album and her first since 2008's 'Discipline', will be released on October 2, with both the single 'No Sleeep' featuring J Cole and the Missy Elliott collaboration 'Burnitup!' set to feature. Listen to the title track below. In a press release published online, Jackson's team outlined some of the album's lyrical concerns. "Themes will include, Janet’s views on where we stand today as individuals and as the inter-related elements of a planet," it says. "Some of these relate to her convictions passionately expressed in '...Rhythm Nation 1814', including the need to bring things out in the open and to have a dialogue. "The album also will mark the first time Janet Jackson has opened up about her brother Michael and with reflections concerning her youth. Inherent in this music will be her feeling that we must learn to celebrate life and the things each of us experiences and endures and how that process can make each person stronger. The album, she assures her fans, contains messages and observations throughout, that are based on the fact that Janet Jackson has lived a lot of life." Jackson will also work again with producer-songwriter team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on the LP. Speaking about their relationship with Jackson, they said: "It’s wonderful to be creating again with Janet. From songwriting, producing, arranging, singing, dancing, acting, she deftly does it all and truly personifies the word artist. Unbreakable is a gift to all of her fans who have steadfastly stood by her. It is a subject for conversation, a plea for compassion, and a call for action from someone who’s come a long way, but’s got a long way to go, and has much to say about it. In other words, if you want to know what’s on her mind you only have to listen." The full tracklisting for 'Unbreakable' is as follows: 'Unbreakable' 'Burnitup!' (feat. Missy Elliott) 'Dammn Baby' 'The Great Forever' 'Shoulda Known Better' 'After You Fall' 'Broken Hearts Heal' 'Night' 'No Sleep' (feat. J Cole) 'Dream Maker/Euphoria' '2 B Loved' 'Take Me Away' 'Promise' 'Lessons Learned' 'Black Eagle' 'Well Traveled' 'Gon B Alright'
