The Big Stories
Katy Perry delayed the start of her upcoming tour, meaning the first six dates will have to be rescheduled. It was supposed to begin September 7th in Columbus, but now it’ll launch September 19th in Montreal. She said the delay was because of “unavoidable production delays,” and “major elements” of her stage were not available for her to rehearse on until just this week. Meanwhile, she announced her opening acts. Noah Cyrus will open the first leg, Purity Ring will take the second, with Carly Rae Jepsen opening for the third.
Justin Bieber dropped his latest single, “Friends,” on Thursday, and fans understandably think it’s about Selena Gomez. The following passage, in particular, seems to be perfectly pertinent to Bieber’s ex, who’s since moved on with The Weeknd: “No, we didn’t end so good/But you know we had something so god/So I’m wondering’/Can we still be friends?” As E! notes, the track is Bieber’s first purely solo single since “Company” was released in 2016, and marks the pop star’s first return to the musical landscape since he canceled his Purpose tour in order to become more “sustainable.”
