Katy Perry seems to be everywhere lately, at least virtually, and she’s just signed on for yet another virtual gig. 

This time the singer, who is expecting her first child with Orlando Bloom next month, is set to headline Tomorrowland Around the World, the virtual edition of the Tomorrowland Festival, which usually takes place in Belgium.

Tomorrowland Around the World is set for July 25th and 26th, and will be in 3D on the festival’s site. There will also be fireworks, and laser shows. Tickets are on sale now

Maroon 5 bassist Mickey Madden was arrested earlier this month on allegations of domestic violence. Well, now Madden has announced he’s taking a leave of absence from the band. 

"I have some things that I need to deal with and address right now and so I have decided to take a leave of absence from Maroon 5 for the foreseeable future," Madden tells “People” in a statement. "During this time, I do not want to be a distraction to my bandmates. I wish them the absolute best."

Details of Madden’s arrest aren’t known. He is currently free on $50,000 bond.

This doesn’t sound very rock star, but Coldplay’s Chris Martin admits that drinking isn’t really something he’s good at.

"I'm not really a great drinker, I don't really do very well with it," he tells BBC Radio 2. "I become very depressed or too much. I acknowledge I can already be a strong flavor, and drinking makes it a bit too strong."

Chris also shares that when he first told his parents he wanted to be a musician they thought it was a “joke.” "You know I may as well have said, 'I'm gonna, you know, open a casino on Jupiter' - that would be about as realistic," he shared. "So I think when I said to my dad and my mum, 'You know, I think I'd like to be in a band', they were like 'OK,' thinking it was some joke.”

He adds, “My parents, they're all from farming families, so it just was completely alien to anything we'd ever experienced and it was for us too for a few years." 

John Legend admitted being caught up in entanglements, but when he met Chrissy Teigen, he put an end to his cheating ways. Legend discussed his dating history before marriage on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s "Armchair Expert" podcast.

“I did have a history of [cheating]. Definitely in my 20’s. I think what happened for me, you go through a lot of your life in your teens and I was younger than everybody in high school and college, and so I just didn’t get a lot of girls. When I started to get that attention, I loved it,” John confessed, adding, “I escaped ‘technically cheating’ by keeping my relationship ill-defined. But it was really cheating. I definitely was dishonest and selfish… It was happening before I was famous.” 

When John met his future wife, things started off carefree. After they fell in love, he stopped cheating. You’re happier being faithful and being in love with one person. At a certain point, I just decided that person was Chrissy. I decided I wasn’t gonna mess with somebody else anymore,” he noted.
