15 Things You Didn't See on TV at the 2018 American Music Awards

The 2018 American Music Awards were a night full of celebration, whether it was Taylor Swift celebrating a new record, Twenty One Pilots celebrating a new album, Panic! at the Disco celebrating the music of Queen, or the lives of late rapper XXXTentacion and soul legend Aretha Franklin being celebrated by their loved ones and admirers.

Dua Lipa Talks 'Experimental' New Music, Grammy Buzz & Why 'Electricity' Video Is 'The Most Confident I've Ever Felt'

Long before she released her self-titled debut album, Dua Lipa began touring back in January 2016. Fast-forward nearly three years, and, by her math, the pop star has played 245 concerts and festival sets since then, with only one date remaining on her 2018 schedule. But she's definitely not complaining. The success of her album -- and especially its record-breaking single "New Rules," which has the longest run ever on Billboard's Pop Songs radio airplay chart, thanks to its 45 weeks on the tally -- has allowed her to "go around the world at least three times, doing what I love and performing," she tells Billboard's Pop Shop Podcast.

UB40's Ali Campbell Says 'It Wasn't Me!' in Alleged Bar Fight With Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

On Monday night, The New York Times reported that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was involved in a bar fight back in 1985 following a UB40 concert in New Haven, Conn. The fight apparently broke out when Kavanaugh and his buddies mistook a fellow bar-goer for lead singer Ali Campbell and then the UB40 frontman look-alike took issue with the men staring at him and said something to the group, reportedly leading the future judge to throw a glass of ice in the man's face.
