Demi Lovato's Atlantic City show canceled after suspected overdose. Demi Lovato's concert in Atlantic City, set to take place Thursday at Atlantic City Beach, has been canceled, Variety has confirmed. Lauv was set to open. A new headliner will be announced imminently, a rep for the venue says. The news arrives as the singer is hospitalized in Los Angeles following a suspected heroin overdose. A source tells Variety that Lovato is currently in "stable" condition. According to law enforcement officials, the Los Angeles Police Department responded to a medical emergency at the 8000 block of Laurel View Drive in the Hollywood Hills, where Lovato's home is located. Lovato's Live Nation tour has been running since February 2017 and averaging just over $596,000 in box office gross, according to Pollstar. (PageSix)

Britney Spears brought Andy Cohen onstage during her concert in New York City Tuesday night, but the question is: did she even know who the heck the 'Watch What Happens Live' host was? Cohen crawled across the stage in bondage at Radio City Music Hall as Spears performed "Freakshow." She pulls someone out of the crowd at every show, but it's an impressive performance on Cohen's part -- he REALLY seemed like a regular. Also interesting is the fact Brit never said his name. Instead, she went with, "I think you all know who this is ... Give it up for him!" IF Brit didn't know him, Andy clearly didn't give a crap. He had a great time!

Macklemore offered Demi Lovato some strong words of encouragement because -- as the rapper said at his concert while dedicating a track to her -- he's been there before. Macklemore was performing at Xfinity Center in Massachusetts Tuesday night when he dedicated "Otherside" to Demi following news she'd been hospitalized for an overdose. The 2009 track touches on drug addiction and what it's like to fall into a seemingly hopeless downward spiral. Macklemore -- who went to rehab at 25 -- called addiction a disease "that ties us addicts together." He called Demi his "sister in recovery" and added he knows what it's like to slip. The Seattle rapper not only dedicated the track to Demi, but to anyone else struggling with addiction. (TMZ)

Deafheaven Debuts on Emerging Artists Chart, Louis Tomlinson Returns to Top Five. Plus, Lauv holds at No. 1 for a sixth week. San Francisco-based heavy metal group Deafheaven debuts at No. 2 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart(dated July 28), as the group's new LP Ordinary Corrupt Human Love debuts at No. 5 on Hard Rock Albums and No. 18 on Top Rock Albums with 7,000 equivalent album units earned, according to Nielsen Music. The Emerging Artists chart ranks the most popular developing artists of the week, using the same formula as the all-encompassing Billboard Artist 100, which measures artist activity across multiple Billboard charts, including the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard 200 and the Social 50. (The Artist 100 lists the most popular acts, overall, of the week.) However, the Emerging Artists chart excludes acts that have notched a top 25 entry on either the Hot 100 or Billboard 200, as well as artists that have achieved two or more top 10s on Billboard's "Hot" song genre charts and/or consumption-based "Top" album genre rankings. Deafheaven's Ordinary concurrently arrives at No. 1 on Vinyl Albums (3,000 vinyl copies sold). Meanwhile, Lauv tallies a sixth week atop Emerging Artists, as his breakout single "I Like Me Better" hits a new peak on the Billboard Hot 100, rising 33-29 in its 23rd week on the chart. One Direction's Louis Tomlinson also leaps 7-4 on Emerging Artists, after re-entering the chart last week, driven by his social media reach. Tomlinson ranks No. 4 on the Social 50 chart, with a 12 percent increase in overall activity. He peaked at No. 2 on Emerging Artists in September. Rounding out the Emerging Artists chart's top five, Queen Naija dips 2-3 and Greta Van Fleet jumps 16-5. Check out this week's full Emerging Artists chart here. (Billboard)

6ix9ine Will Open For Nicki Minaj and Future on Their Co-Headlining NICKIHNDRXX Tour. Following their explosive "FEFE" collaboration, Nicki Minaj took to social media on Tuesday (July 24) to announce that 6ix9ine will serve as one of three openers on her and Future's co-headlining NICKIHNDRXX Tour this fall. The North American trek marks the Brooklyn-bred rapper's arena tour debut. "6ix9ine is 1 of the 3 artists that Future and I have added to the #NickiHndrxx WORLD TOUR. Tickets come w|a physical copy of #QUEEN which will be released on August 10th. Tour link in bio. #Fefe #1 on APPLE MUSIC, TIDAL, YOUTUBE, #2 on SPOTIFY, #3 on iTunes," Minaj wrote. Minaj is slated to unveil the next handpicked pair of openers at a later date. The NICKIHNDRXX Tour kicks off in Baltimore on Sept. 21 with tickets still available over at Ticketmaster. 6ix9ine recently wrapped up a successful European tour earlier in July prior to being arrested upon his NYC arrival. The 22-year-old hopes to have his legal issues sorted out prior to hitting the road again. "FEFE" is the first joint effort between the New York natives and the visual has already accumulated over 32 million views on YouTube in just three days. (Billboard)

Arctic Monkeys Cover The Strokes' 'Is This It'. You can't say Alex Turner didn't warn you. It's right there in the first line of "Star Treatment" from the Arctic Monkeys' latest album, Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino, where he sings, "I just wanted to be one of The Strokes." How badly? Well, on Tuesday night (July 24) Turner paid homage to his favorite early aughts New York band near the end of the Monkeys' show at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens, N.Y. by busting out a cover of The Strokes' 2001 breakthrough hit "Is This Is." As noted by Stereogum, Turner, sporting his nearly shorn hairdo, told the crowd, "We couldn't think of a tennis song, so we're gonna try this," alluding to the venue's former status as home of the U.S. Open. It's not the first time Turner and co. have taken on a Strokes track (previous covers include "Reptilia" and "Take It Or Leave It") and it's just one of the many times the singer has professed his love for Julian Casablancas and the gang. "I remember I used to play ["Is This It"] in college all the time, when our band was first starting. Loads of people were into them, so loads of bands coming out sounded like them. And I remember consciously trying not to sound like the Strokes, deliberately taking bits out of songs that sounded too much like them, but I still loved that album," Turner told NME in 2011. "As much as they probably hate hearing this as well, they were the band that encouraged me to rip the knees of my jeans and write on them in marker pen. I wrote on them in red ink, 'I've got soul and I'm superbad.'" Turner, dressed in cream-colored pants and a matching shirt with black accents, gave "Is This It" his own unique spin, slowing down the already brooding song and giving it a lounge-y feel.
