All of them are fine but there are four people who aren’t fine so let’s dedicate this to them tonight.” Adele then dedicated her cover of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love to the victims of the attack, which left four people dead and 29 injured.

John Mayer admits that his new track, Still Feel Like Your Man, was written about his ex-girlfriend Katy Perry. “Who else would I be thinking about?” And by the way, it’s a testament to the fact that I have not dated a lot of people in the last five, six years. That was my only relationship. So it’s like, give me this, people.” And it sure sounds like John, who turns 40 in October, is ready to settle down and have a family. “I wish there was somebody to throw me the 40th,” he said, adding, “I want the baby with the protective earphones” near the stage.  He notes, “I’m right on time for my career, and I’m running late for my life.” Source: New York Times
