"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.

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."
Mandy Moore Releases First New Music In 10 Years

Mandy Moore is getting back to her singing roots.

The Emmy-nominated This Is Us actress has released her first new music in 10 years: the single "When I Wasn't Watching," which is set to appear on Mandy's forthcoming album, due out early next year.

"The idea of diving back into music after so much time and personal change was really intimidating to me for a while," Mandy says. "But then I finally realized: I'm the only person who can make this move. It all has to start with me."

Mandy says the song is about the universal experience of "feeling lost and not quite understanding how you've found yourself at a certain point in your life." "I'm a big believer in the idea that what you've journeyed through is ultimately going to factor into the person you become, and how you'll greet whatever big challenge you face next," she adds.

Mandy began working on her new album, the follow-up to 2009's Amanda Leigh, earlier this year, with her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith, among the collaborators.

As she preps her seventh studio album, Moore will take to the big screen in November when she joins Nick Jonas, Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans and Woody Harrelson in the WWII epic Midway.
Nick Carter Gets Restraining Order Against Brother Aaron

Nick Carter has been given a temporary restraining order against younger brother Aaron after he allegedly threatened to kill Nick's pregnant wife Lauren and their unborn child.

According to the order, the 31-year-old Aaron has been ordered to stay away from the 39-year-old Backstreet Boys member, his wife, and kids. Nick says both he and his sister were forced to seek the order against Aaron, "In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child."

After receiving the order, Aaron took to Twitter to slam Nick. "LEAVE ME ALONE. FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. IM BEGGING YOU. PLEASE," Aaron wrote. "🤝 I haven't even seen you guys and nick you bullied me my whole life. And tortured me as a child. And everyone knows it. ITS BEEN PUBLIC. and now you're scared of the truth."

A hearing for a permanent restraining order has been set for October 16th.

Aaron was recently on The Doctors where he revealed he suffered from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression and was prescribed several different medications.

However, Aaron came on "TMZ Live" disputing that he's struggling with his mental health. He said that cops had visited his home the previous night with plans to take him in on a psychiatric hold. Aaron said he let them know he had multiple guns and convinced them that he was OK. He said it was their eighth visit to his home in two weeks to check on his mental health. Nick said:

"Last night, I got an attempt for an actual 5150, which is they're coming to my house and there was four deputies who came . . . and a mental evaluator with a clipboard, who was ready to take me away and put me in a straight jacket last night."

When TMZ reporters asked what prompted the visit, Nick responded it could be "multiple people that are really close to me," and said he's been "documenting everything because I'm in fear for my safety." He also said he was "studying the bar exam right now." Nick added that he didn't know why the cops didn't take him into custody, and revealed they told him they decided to visit because "this keeps happening to you and we're worried about you." Nick said he warned officers that he had "multiple firearms with one in the chamber loaded around the house," and claimed they told him: "That's your right":

So they come they come in my home, and I said hey guys come on in…I said just so you know, I have multiple firearms loaded with one in the chamber around the house and they said ‘that's your right'."

TMZ says police are looking into an obscure law that could be used to take his guns away.

This latest family drama comes after Aaron cancelled a number of upcoming tour dates this year in order to focus on "taking sobriety one day at a time" as well as "a family issue."
