Because of unrest in Thailand, Taylor Swift has canceled a sold-out concert in the country that came under military rule last week after a coup d'etat. On the concert promoter's website, it said that the concert was canceled "due to recent events in Thailand." It didn't elaborate but called the move "a difficult decision for all parties." The concert in Bangkok would have been the night of June 9. Swift tweeted about the June 9th Bangkok concert saying, "I'm sending my love to the fans in Thailand. I'm so sad about the concert being canceled." Several other international performers have canceled or postponed appearances in Thailand during the recent months of political protests.

Brad Paisley’s video for his current single "River Bank" premiered on perezhilton.com over the weekend. A portion of the video was also highlighted on Monday’s edition of ABC’s Good Morning America, with the video making its full-length broadcast premiere this Friday on CMT. The video was shot on a 150-acre body of water in Alabama and contains the usual summertime fun necessities – sun, water, boats, drinks, bikini-clad ladies AND a water-skiing squirrel by the name of Twiggy. Also spotted on location was a bald eagle’s nest, a natural predator to squirrels, so eyes were to the sky throughout the day to protect Twiggy. (Photo Credit: www.perezhilton.com )
