Watch Kip Moore Pull Putrid Prank on Dierks Bentley

Watch Kip Moore Pull Putrid Prank on Dierks Bentley:

There's somethin' 'bout a truck… with a Billy goat in the back? So thinks Kip Moore, anyway, who played an epic prank on tourmate Dierks Bentley as retaliation for forcing him, along with fellow opening acts Maddie & Tae and Canaan Smith, to take a chilly polar plunge in Nashville's Percy Priest Lake.

In a video that captured it all, premiering exclusively on Rolling Stone Country, watch as Moore has his team cover Bentley's beloved "Big White" truck in graffiti and fill it with foam peanuts — also loading the bed with hay and a live goat (complete with unintentional goat droppings). Moore was nice enough to plastic-wrap the whole vehicle first, so the paint is temporary. That animal stench, however, may be a little harder to clean.

Bentley discovered the tortured Big White — and his new horned passenger — in an alleyway behind a Nashville publishing company after a writing session. It didn't take much for the "Say You Do" singer to figure out the perpetrator (Moore wrote "Kip" and "payback" all over the Chevy, so, yeah, pretty easy). He also left a note that said, "I'm to Blame," which is not so coincidentally the name of his confessions-of-a-country-bad-boy current single.

"We were thinking about some cool things we could do around the new song, and since Dierks enjoyed watching us jump in the freezing cold lake so much, he immediately came to mind as my first target," Moore tells Rolling Stone Country.  "The tour hasn't even started yet, so it could be a long summer but seeing that goat in the back of Big White was worth it."

For Moore's sake, hopefully Bentley's fans have a good sense of humor, too — he's currently in the running for the ACM's Best New Artist award, which, in a special partnership with CMT, will be open to online fan voting for the first time in its 50-year run. The "I'm to Blame" prankster is up against Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr, Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett, Chase Rice, Cole Swindell and Dan + Shay, and voting is open now on VoteACM.com and VoteACM.CMT.com.

'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Preps Month of Live Musical Mash-Ups

'Jimmy Kimmel Live' Preps Month of Live Musical Mash-Ups:

Jimmy Kimmel Live will shake up its regularly scheduled musical performances this February with a new series, "Mash Up Mondays," bringing together two artists for a special one-off gig.

"Mash Up Mondays" kicks off February 2nd with Weezer and ZZ Top — or as host Jimmy Kimmel re-dubbed them in a press release, "Wee-Z Top" — and continues February 9th with Haim and funk legends Morris Day and the Time (a.k.a. "Morris Day and the Haim"). On February 16th, rising soul star Aloe Blacc will take the stage with Nineties new jack swing heroes Blackstreet as "Aloe Blaccstreet." No word yet on which pun-tastic pairing will close out the series on February 23rd.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! has cultivated a reputation for airing unique musical bits, like the Decemberists' fictional LP of musical YouTube comments, Meghan Trainor's awkward Thanksgiving carols like "Grandma's a Racist (Pass the Yams)" or Josh Groban's moving performances of Kanye West's most memorable tweets. Kimmel has also hosted a number of live concerts outside its studio on Hollywood Boulevard, featuring headliners like Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift.

Kimmel himself is, of course, prone to getting in on the musical fun as well. After first breaking out with "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck," the acclaimed follow-up to Sarah Silverman's viral smash "I'm Fucking Matt Damon," Kimmel has gotten dancing lessons from 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler and helped the Killers write their annual Christmas song, "Joel, the Lump of Coal."

Bjork Likens Making Emotional 'Vulnicura' to 'Open-Heart Surgery'

Bjork Likens Making Emotional 'Vulnicura' to 'Open-Heart Surgery':

Björk's latest album, Vulnicura, was such a personal experience that she compared it to opening herself up — literally — in a new interview with The New York Times. "You feel like you're having open-heart surgery, with knives sticking in, so that everything is out, and you have this urgency and immediacy," she said. Regarding the overwhelming resolution she felt to make the album, she said, "You feel like you belong to another power. It's not yours. It's like the universal heartbreak energy current...that is taking you hostage."

The singer explained that the album was largely influenced by her separation with her romantic partner, artist Matthew Barney — with whom she has a daughter — and that the album's first six songs are a chronological account of the breakup. "Usually, I don't really talk about my private life, but with this album there's no two ways about what it is," she said. "I separated during this album, ended a 13-year relationship, and it's probably the toughest thing I've done." Barney declined to comment for the Times.

The experience, she said, inspired a fight-or-flight instinct within her. "Weirdly, I think the survivalist in me kicked in," she said. "When you're going through the most difficult things emotionally, the scientist kicks in to try to make sense of it all. Part of me wants just to hide it, and part of me is going, 'No — this could be a document of the heartbreak of the species, and could even be helpful to someone."

But before the album could come out, she experienced another kind of heartbreak when Vulnicura leaked online. So her instincts told her to put it online immediately — much to the chagrin of her label. "All the record companies around the world were just stubborn about keeping to the plan," she said. "I'm not just, 'Break the rules to break the rules,' but it had a strange smell to it. The chances people were going to wait a month and a half were zero." Ultimately, she decided that, despite the protests of her business partners, she should release the album because of its emotional content.

Next up for the singer, other than a run of intermittent New York dates, is her long-in-the-works exhibition at the city's Museum of Modern Art. The art institution had approached Björk with the idea of the exhibition back in 2000, but she didn't agree to it until 2012, telling a curator that she saw herself as a musician and not a visual artist.

Björk said she took many efforts to make the experience unique. Only 100 visitors will be allowed in at a time, wearing headphones, and will walk through rooms focusing on each of the singer's adult solo albums, while looking at the costumes and videos that surrounded each period and listening to audio commentary written by her occasional collaborator, poet and novelist Sjon. Björk recorded some of the narration herself along with Icelandic director and actress, Margrét Vilhjálmsdóttir. Björk described the whole experience as somewhat a "cacophony of sound."

Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley Lead ACM Awards Nominations

Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley Lead ACM Awards Nominations:

With eight total nominations, including one for top prize Entertainer of the Year, Miranda Lambert leads all nominees at this year's 50th annual Academy of Country Music Awards. The nominations where announced Friday morning via Twitter.

Dierks Bentley, whose album Riser was both a commercial and critical success, follows his former touring partner Lambert with seven nominations, including Album of the Year and Male Vocalist. In a twist, a tie in the latter category necessitated six — instead of the customary five — nominees. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton join Bentley in the Male Vocalist race. The Song of the Year category also resulted in a six-nominee field: Kenny Chesney's "American Kids"; Lambert's "Automatic"; Bryan's "Drink a Beer"; Kacey Musgraves' "Follow Your Arrow"; Church's "Give Me Back My Hometown"; and Bentley's "I Hold On."

The ACM nominations are often distinguished by the inclusion of newer artists: Brandy Clark, with little radio airplay, is up for Female Vocalist of the Year, Brothers Osborne and Maddie & Tae compete in Vocal Duo of the Year, and the Cadillac Three appear in the Vocal Event of the Year category for their anthem "The South."

But it's the Entertainer of the Year category that best illustrates the ACMs' wild card reputation. Garth Brooks, who returned last year from a lengthy retirement, and Florida Georgia Line, who released just their second album in October, are both up for Entertainer, against perennial nominees Lambert, Bryan and Aldean. The exclusion of Shelton, who co-hosts the ceremony with Bryan, is a shocker, as is the snub of Church, who has mounted one of the year's most in-demand tours.

Both the Entertainer category and the New Artist category winners are determined by fan voting. The final three New Artist nominees will be announced later, with voting to determine the victor beginning a few days before the show.

The Academy of Country Music Awards air Sunday, April 19th on CBS from AT&T Stadium in Texas.

Jay Z Enters High-Quality Music Streaming Industry

Jay Z Enters High-Quality Music Streaming Industry:

After tackling the world of music, nightclubs, basketball team ownership and athlete representation, Jay Z has now set his sights on entering the gauntlet of high-quality streaming music. The New York Times reports that Jay Z has put in a $56 million offer for Aspiro, a Swedish company that controls high-quality streaming services Wimp and Tidal. The bid already receiving preliminary approval from the Aspiro board.

A spokesperson for Sean Carter Enterprises (SCE) confirmed that Project Panther Bidco, a company owned by SCE, was pursuing a possible acquisition of the Swedish music service. "Aspiro is a media technology company in the forefront of the ongoing redefinition of music consumption," the SCE spokesperson tells Rolling Stone. "Through the subscription services WiMP and TIDAL, Aspiro offers a complete experience of higher HiFi quality. The platform encompasses audio, video and integrated editorial features.

"Panther believes that the recent developments in the entertainment industry, with the migration to media streaming, offers great potential for increased entertainment consumption and an opportunity for artists to further promote their music," the statement continued. "Panther's strategic ambition revolves around global expansion and up-scaling of Aspiro’s platform, technology and services."

The SCE spokesperson concludes that the Aspiro acquisition is still subject to shareholder approval and therefore "there is no guaranty that a transaction will take place." The New York Times reports that Wimp had 512,000 paying users according to its last quarterly report. The number of Tidal users was not revealed but subscribers pay a monthly fee of $20 for the service, double that of Spotify's Premium rate.

Like Pono, Neil Young's upstart digital music player, both Wimp and Tidal offer lossless files, making for more high-quality sound than that of the usual streaming services. With streaming continuing to dominate a music industry hit by record low sales, Jay Z is firmly positioning himself in this burgeoning business should the Aspiro acquisition be completed.

Missy Elliott Will Join Katy Perry for Super Bowl Halftime Performance

Missy Elliott Will Join Katy Perry for Super Bowl Halftime Performance:

Missy Elliott will make a "surprise appearance" during Katy Perry's Super Bowl XLIX halftime show performance, according to The Associated Press, citing an anonymous "person familiar with the plans." (Consider the surprise ruined.) The rapper made a cameo on a remix of Perry's 2011 single "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," though it's unclear which track she'll perform. The show takes place Sunday, February 1st at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Perry seemed to tease Elliott's involvement during a news conference on Thursday, stating that the halftime show would feature an "old school" female artist. "When you hear the first ring of the chord," Perry said, "I think jaws will drop and faces will melt." The singer also revealed a planned appearance from singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz, whom she called "an incredible rock & roll icon, a guitar god." When asked if the duo would perform Kravitz' Grammy-winning cover of the Guess Who's "American Woman," Perry responded, "We'll see."

In her newly revealed Billboard cover story, Perry offers a backstage close-up of her Super Bowl preparation – and the pressure that comes with such a high-profile gig. "Everyone has been asking me if I'm going to be nervous before the halftime show," she says. "I'm like, I'm fucking human. This is the biggest event of my career."

She also mentions studying recent halftime show gigs – including Madonna in 2012 ("I like Madonna for the graphic effects she brought") and Beyoncé the following year. "[Beyoncé] brought so much strength, so much sassiness and just the right amount of sex," she says. "She's an icon. Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Jackson – she's in that category. I'm not. She's like five notches above me, and those levels are compounded in difficulty."

She even reached out via text message to Bruno Mars – who unexpectedly teamed up with Red Hot Chili Peppers at last year's Super Bowl – for advice. "Hello, exclusive Super Bowl club member!" she wrote. "I was wondering if you are in L.A. at all this month and would have tea with a sister who is about to throw up with nervousness re: [football emoji]. I've heard about your process through our managers, but am wondering if you had more insight on important things like, spray tan the night before or three nights before? JK, or maybe not!"

Katy Perry Takes Her Super Bowl Performance Duties Quite Literally

Katy Perry Takes Her Super Bowl Performance Duties Quite Literally: Katy Perry is known for wowing us with playful vibes on the red carpet, but when it comes to taking on the role of Super Bowl Halftime Show performer, she's clearly not messing around.



Perry arrived at the Super Bowl Halftime Show press conference on Thursday fully decked out in, well, footballs. The singer wore a custom made crop top and skirt combination by RVN, which, according to a release, was made just days before the conference. She topped off the look with a sleek pony and you guessed it, football-shaped accessories.

Emma Stone STUNS On This Week's Best Dressed List

Emma Stone STUNS On This Week's Best Dressed List: We saw some pretty gorgeous looks on this week's best-dressed list.



Emma Stone turned heads in a black dress, Elle Fanning proved that she is a budding fashionista in an amazing top and pants look and Reese Witherspoon made us take notice in a one-shouldered gown.



Check out our favorite looks of the week and let us know if you agree with our picks.



Emma Stone in Dior



emma




Ladies and gentleman, get a pen and paper because you're going to want to take notes -- this is the perfect red carpet outfit. There is nothing that we love more than a woman in menswear and here Stone managed to make her tuxedo-inspired dress look very feminine by adding a long sheer train. Her pulled back hair, bold red lipstick and strappy shoes further cement her sartorial prowess.



Jennifer Lawrence in Prada



jlaw




Wait, Ms. Lawrence is not wearing Dior? What a treat! This soft pink, pleated gown makes it look like she is floating along the red carpet and the plunging neckline ensures that the dress isn't too mature for the young star.



Elle Fanning in Rodarte



elle




There are few things we love more than high-waisted pants and a turtleneck. Fanning is giving us serious '70s vibes in this cool ensemble -- clearly she knows how to put together an outfit.



America Ferrera in Dolce & Gabbana



america




Between the curve-hugging silhouette, the lace and the crystal embellishments, this outfit is home run.



Reese Witherspoon In Giorgio Armani



reese




Reese is on a roll! The one-shouldered gown creates beautiful lines making her look long and lean. Her sophisticated ponytail is such a welcome departure from her typical wavy strands.



Felicity Jones in Balenciaga



f




This gown is stunning on Jones. The blush hue is so pretty against her pale complexion and the crisscross, off-the-shoulder neckline makes it special.
