Brad Paisley is defending his new duet with LL Cool J, "Accidental Racist." The singer took heat for the song, which caused a stir for its blunt take on being a "white man coming to you from the southland." The song was released Monday (April 08) and immediately received a strong backlash, some calling it the worst song ever, others calling it a stunt. Paisley took to Twitter, saying he wouldn't change anything about the song and that his new album is "meant to be far from easy listening."
Halle Berry showed off her new baby bump at the premiere of her film, "The Call," in Buenos Aires. The Oscar-winning actress wore a figure-hugging purple gown as she posed for photos on the red carpet. Berry told reporters while she doesn't yet know the sex of the baby, her 5-year old daughter Nahla is praying for a little sister.
The Rolling Stones have announced the official start date to their upcoming "50 and Counting" tour. The tour will launch in Los Angeles on May 2. Following the L.A. show, the Stones will hit other major North American cities including Chicago, Boston, Toronto, and Las Vegas.
