Lewis Capaldi Suffers Tourette Episode on Stage, Fans Help Him Out
Last week, Scottish pop singer Lewis Capaldi was performing in Frankfurt, Germany when his neurological disorder got the better of him. While singing his 2019 hit “Someone You Loved”, he started having severe Tourette’s tics, shaking his head while tilting it to his left.

P!nk Reignites Christina Aguilera Feud on Twitter
While talking with Buzzfeed UK, American pop rock singer P!nk reiterated what she has said about Christina Aguilera earlier. That is, that she was not pleasant to work with while shooting the music video for their 2001 song “Lady Marmalade”. It’s not much of a statement, but it was enough to create some backlash on Twitter. P!nk quipped back at her detractors on the site, saying “I kissed xtinas mouth. I don’t need to kiss her a--."
