The originator of the Storm Area 51 internet hoax is citing concerns about organization and funding and has withdrawn from an event called Alienstock scheduled next week in the Nevada desert. Matty Roberts said he’s worried the event hosted by innkeeper Connie West in the tiny town of Rachel won’t succeed. West said she has 20 musical acts and two comedians booked her festival. She says a stage is on the way and the show will go on. However a statement on the official Alienstock site says the event has been called off and they’ll instead host a September 19 event at a venue in downtown Las Vegas. Find more details here.
As Weezer, Fall Out Boy and Green Day are getting ready to embark on their 2020 global stadium tour together, Pete, Rivers and Billie Joe Armstrong sat down for an interview. The guys chatted about meeting one another for the first time, for Pete and Rivers it was in their underwear in a commercial with Taylor Swift. The three rockers explained the process of making music has changed so much over the years too. They all said it’s so much faster and you can keep trying a zillion different ideas that it’s sometimes hard to pick. You can hear their new material on the Hella Mega tour next year!
There are many different metrics of success: being Grammy nominated, hitting the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, but for Lizzo the ultimate made it moment came on Tuesday when an iconic children’s TV star gave her props. Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster tweet me just took a DNA test turns out me 100% cookies. Lizzo lost her mind at the unexpected honor, doubling down by retweeting and adding her own fresh-baked take on the song.

Apparently, there’s only room for one killer mustache in pop. Or so it seems. Burno Mars had some thoughts when he saw The Weeknd has paired his new, natural hairdo with a 1970s-style mouth brow. Bruno has some super similar facial hair going on right now too so he joked that the Weeknd is stealing his style. The mustache talk rung up plenty of laughing emjois from pals. But Burno had more to say joke tweeting ITS ON NOW!!!! When a fan posted a side-by-side of the men rocking their looks. The Weeknd has yet to respond to Bruno’s threats.
ITS ON NOW!!!! https://t.co/Y5LWYk0M8m
