'American Idol' Winner Laine Hardy Announces Fall Headlining Tour

After making his festival debut at last weekend's KAABOO Festival in California, American Idol winner Laine Hardy has announced his first headline tour.

The 19-year-old, who recently celebrated his birthday, just announced his first headlining tour, set to kick off November 14th in Milwaukee. He'll hit cities including Chicago, Sacramento and Denver, before wrapping December 7th in Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

"This is the moment I've been working toward…going out on my own tour!" Laine says in a statement. "I can't wait to share the new songs I've been working on."

In addition to the tour dates, he also has a homecoming show on September 28th at North Park in Denham Springs, Louisiana, as well as a show supporting country star Toby Keith in Charleston, South Carolina, on October 5th and one with country star Jimmie Allen in Nashville on October 24th.

Hardy was voted the winner of ABC's American Idol earlier this year.

Lizzo Apologizes For Putting Postmates Driver 'On Blast' After Not Receiving Her Food

Lizzo accused a Postmates driver of stealing her order and got an angry order of online backlash.

The rapper called out both the driver and Postmates on Twitter Monday, writing in a since-deleted tweet, "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food. she lucky I don't fight no more."

Postmates responded to Lizzo, asking her to DM them and apologized for the "less than satisfactory experience."

Some Twitter users defended Lizzo for making her complaint public, while others thought she was a "snitch" for ratting out Tiffany W. to Postmates. "Jesus. This poor girl is going to get fired and then hunted down. Come on, Lizzo," tweeted one follower.

"Snitches get stitches," wrote another.

"So you've publicly shamed someone who works in the service industry… you've nearly a million twitter followers… and you've now DMd their employer who will likely sack the individual you shamed publicly after accusing her of theft when you don't actually know what happened…," tweeted another.

Lizzo later atoned on Twitter, writing, "I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door. 🥺"

A source told Rolling Stone that "the Postmates employee in question waited at the designated drop-off location for 5 minutes, but was unable to reach Lizzo (or anyone else who placed the order), and moved on with their delivery."

Lizzo has now apologized for the outburst, especially for revealing the woman's identity and potentially putting her in danger. "I apologize for putting that girl on blast," she wrote on Tuesday.

"I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. Imma really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."
