Cody Simpson Is Just Talking Foam & Figerglass In His ‘Surfboard’ Single

Cody Simpson 2014

Cody Simpson tells MTV News his new single ‘Surfboard’ doesn’t borrow the innuendo displayed by Beyonce’s use of “Surfboart” in her ‘Drunk In Love’ song. “I think Beyonce kind of made surfboard a sexual innuendo that people wouldn’t necessarily have picked up on if my song had come out without her using that term,” the Australian pop singer explained. “I’ve been writing about surfboards my whole life. All of my albums have been ‘Surfer’s Paradise’ or something like that, so I mean honestly I had the idea. I love Beyonce’s album, I love that song and I was like if there was any time to release that song it was now since this term is a part of pop culture, which is exciting for me being a surfer myself.”

Demi Lovato Upset With Lady Gaga Over SXSW “Vomit Art”

Demi Lovato headphones

Demi Lovato reacted strongly on Twitter (@ddlovato) to the Lady Gaga performance at SXSW on Thursday night at Stubb’s BBQ, where the singer was vomited on by friend and “vomit painter” Millie Brown, who drank a bottle of neon green liquid before forcing herself to throw up on the Gaga while she played drums. Demi interpreted the stunt in poor taste in regards to eating disorders, writing on the micro blogging site:

Sad… As if we didn’t have enough people glamorizing eat disorders already. Bottom line, it’s not “cool” or “artsy” at all.

Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you? Addiction is addiction.

It’s not “shade” and it’s not “hate”. But someone has to come forward and say it and I’ll take the heat for it.

@ladygaga you’re SO talented, if not one of the most talented in our industry PERIOD. Dope is INCREDIBLE.. but you don’t have to do that

So it’s cool if I do a speech about self-harm and then proceed to watch someone cut themselves on my stage? No. That doesn’t make it OKAY RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato Gaga herself struggled with an eating disorder. She gave a moving speech BEFORE her performance & I highly doubt her intention

Putting the word ART in it isn’t a free card to do whatever you want without consequences. RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato That wasn’t the POINT! The girl was an ARTIST

That’s an ignorant thing to say and you clearly don’t know anything about mental illnesses or addiction. RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato And you know comparing self-harm to this situation doesn’t even make sense. Accusing someone of “glamorizing” something they struggled with is WRONG.

Activists don’t shut up. If no one raises their voice, how are we supposed to be heard?

Watch the vomiting incident below.

Kina Grannis 'Elements' album cover

Kina Grannis is set to release her second album ‘Elements’ on May 6th via her Kina Grannis Music imprint, distributed through The Orchard. ‘Elements’ was produced and recorded by Matt Hales (aka Aqualung), and showcases Kina’s more mature sound. Hales’ recent credits include work with Lianne La Havas, Alex Clare and Paloma Faith. Kina commented on the new project:

In making this album I confronted a lot of things that, in the past, I would have run away from. It was a process that ultimately helped me create a collection of songs that I feel more deeply connected to than any I’ve written before and I’m beyond excited to have the opportunity to share this journey with all of my fans.

Demi Lovato Reacts To Philip Seymour Hoffman Death

Demi Lovato no makeup

Demi Lovato checked in with her Twitter followers (@ddlovato) earlier today, reacting to news that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in his New York apartment this morning of an apparent drug overdose, leaving behind a son and two daughters, with his partner, costume designer Mimi O’Donnell. Hoffman was 46. Demi, who has battled substance abuse herself, writes:

I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is. Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It’s not cute, “cool” or admire able. It’s very rare when people can actually predict their addiction and even then, you never know when too much is going to take their life or take a bad batch of whatever it is their using. It’s time people start really taking action on changing what we’re actually singing/rapping about these days because you never know if you could be glamorizing a certain drug to a first time user or alcoholic who could possibly end up dead because they end up suffering from the same deadly disease so many have already died from. This stuff is not something to mess with. Why risk it? Addiction IS a disease. Please spread the word so we can take the taboo out of discussing this illness and raising awareness to people of all ages. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.. An INCREDIBLE artist who lost his life to this horrible disease.. May you rest peacefully and in complete serenity now that your pain is gone. God Bless..

Demi also fired back at a Twitter critic of her words, writing:

If ONLY it were that simple. You clearly have never lost anyone to drugs or alcohol and OBVIOUSLY are not educated enough to fully understand the seriousness of this MENTAL ILLNESS. RT @M_Franchello89: @ddlovato then you’re a fu**ing idiot and you deserve what ever happens to you.
