“I’d never been to Japan before, so it was kind of crazy,” Charli recently shared to Stereogum about the country, where she filmed her 2013 single “SuperLove,” which didn’t make it on the English version of Sucker Punch. “We were only there for, like, two days…. The police shut the video shoot down, which made me feel so badass. I was like, ‘Whoa, I’m like Kesha or something….’ It was kind of crazy, but it was great.”

Also pictured: Charli sticking out her tongue while exiting the Islington Assembly Hall after a show performance on Wednesday (January 28) in London, England.

Sam Smith Will Pay Tom Petty Royalties for 'Stay With Me'

Sam Smith has agreed to pay the legendary singer Tom Petty royalties from his song “Stay With Me.”

The decision came after Tom and his collaborator Jeff Lynne noticed that the song was very similar to their song “I Won’t Back Down.” They reached out to Sam‘s reps and both teams came to an agreement amicably.

“Not previously familiar with the 1989 Petty/Lynne song, the writers of ‘Stay With Me’ listened to ‘I Won’t Back Down’ and acknowledged the similarity,” Sam‘s rep said in a statement to Billboard. “Although the likeness was a complete coincidence, all involved came to an immediate and amicable agreement in which Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are now credited as co-writers of ‘Stay With Me’ along with Sam Smith, James Napier and William Phillips.”

Listen to “I Won’t Back Down” and decide if the songs sound alike!
