+ Kanye West’s “Yeezus” Tour is off to a rocky start. The rapper was forced to postpone the tour as one of the trucks carrying stage gear was in an accident. The equipment was damaged and now has to be replaced before the tour can resume, though there’s no word yet on when that will be. (MTV News)
+ Speaking of Mother Monster, Gaga unveiled the bizarre cover art for “Dope,” the next single off of ARTPOP. She also revealed that it will be the final single released before the album officially drops on Nov. 11. (Just Jared)
+ Guess what, Beliebers, someone surprising has joined your ranks: the metal gods of Metallica! “Are we Beliebers? Yes,” said singer James Hetfield. Apparently, the feeling is mutual; Justin Bieber covered Metallica’s “Fade To Black” earlier in the year. (NME)
