Tickets go on sale Friday and additional dates will be added, but scroll down for a look at where Grande will be performing this summer.

The rocker had gone out for a ride prior to his Saturday show in Hershey, Pa., when his back tire popped, leaving him stranded without a cell phone.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend, who were running late to the concert, weren't the only ones. They noticed a hitchhiker and pulled over ... to their astonishment.

Thanks to a recently-installed bicycle rack on their car, the fans were able to give the singer-songwriter and his gear a lift to Hersheypark Stadium.

Willow Smith's new "Summer Fling" music video and lyrics have drawn criticism from some parents who find the content a bit racy for someone her age.

She's 12, after all.

The Willow Smith "Summer Fling" video shows her holding hands, hugging, cuddling and flirting with a seemingly older boy, and features lyrics such as:

"You tell me that I’m the one / I tell you it's just for fun / Don't really care what we do tonight / Good night kiss 'til the mood is right."

"Laying by the beach with you / Wishing it would never end."

The video - and song about having a "fling" at age 12, has some parents worried that it's too mature for Willow's age, while others say it's all in good fun.

Where do you stand on Willow Smith's new video?

In the aftermath of the George Zimmerman verdict that resonated across the U.S., Beyonce honored Trayvon Martin at the Mrs. Carter Show in Nashville.

The 31-year-old singer offered a moment of silence for the slain Florida teen, whose death continues to sadden so many around the nation and world.

She also covered Whitney Houston's legendary "I Will Always Love You."

Martin has become a cause celebre among A-listers since his death 17 months ago, as evidenced by the mostly irate celebrity Twitter reactions to the verdict.

Beyonce did not criticize the jury specifically, however.

By choosing to tenderly and simply honor the teen and his family, she left the legal and political issues this case has raised to be debated another day.

With all due respect to Miley Cyrus Twerking, classical music has been unjustly overlooked during the ascension of this suggestive new dance craze.

Typically associated with hip hop, Twerking is interpreted through a radically different genre below in an experiment designed to legitimize the art.

"Twerking to Classical," an ongoing Huffington Post series, blends web videos of twerking with the more accepted artistic mores of classical music.

The result? Nothing short of paradigm breaking.

The first installment, "Twerking to Classical," explores the dynamic between Aram Khachaturian’s Suserov Par (Saber Dance) and a series of female twerkers.

The sequel, from "Men at Twerk," combines some of the most acclaimed male Twerkers with Gioachino Rossini’s smash hit William Tell Overture.

When it comes to these guys and girls contorting, gyrating and parting like it's 1699, we can’t stop ... and we're guessing you won't be able to either.
