Iggy Azalea's Great Escape Tour Rescheduled, Loses Openers



>> Iggy Azalea's spring tour of North America has been rescheduled. The Great Escape Tour was supposed to kick off in April, but due to supposed "tour production delays," the run will now begin on September 18th in San Diego.  In addition, Nick Jonas and Tinashe will no longer be the opening acts for this tour, but the new openers should be announced soon.

>> UPDATE (3/13/15): According to Billboard, Azalea had this to say about the situation in a recent interview with 97.1 AMP Radio : "It is bumped back because I am a psychopath.

"It's tough when it's your first time working on an arena situation."

Woodkid and Lykke Li Team Up for "Never Let You Down"



>> Last year, Woodkid was featured on the soundtrack for the film Divergent alongside M83, Ellie Goulding, Snow Patrol, and more.  Later this month, the film's sequel Insurgent will be released, and once again Woodkid graces the soundtrack with his song "Never Let You Down."


>> The track list for the Insurgent soundtrack is much shorter than its predecessor, but that doesn't mean that the 2015 installment won't be just as good.  M83 recorded a song with Haim, and now you can hear Woodkid's song "Never Let You Down" featuring Lykke Li before the soundtrack's release on March 17th.  The track has a dramatic and brooding feel to it, making it a perfect fit for the franchise. Listen below!





>> The Insurgent soundtrack comes out on March 17th, and the movie hits theaters on March 20th.  View the full track list for the soundtrack and lyrics to Woodkid and Lykke Li's "Never Let You Down" below.

Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" Meets Game of Thrones



>> Full disclosure: I'm a huge nerd who's been waiting for an excuse to post about Game of Thrones for a long time now.

>> Freddy Scott recently transformed Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" into "Blank Page," a song GOT author George R.R. Martin sings in the video as he reflects on the power he holds over the realm. Martin, played here by Nick Mundy, is seen hanging out with (and occasionally threatening) Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emily Rudd. Jon Snow even makes an appearance towards the end (spoiler alert?). The song is so well done, and the video is bound to make any fellow Game of Thrones fan laugh.  Watch the parody below.





>> Want more GOT? Watch Natalie Dormer star in Hozier's latest video for "Someone New" here.
