Mark Hoppus Says He's Done With His Chemo!

Mark Hoppus has given another health update amid his cancer battle. The Blink-182 frontman recently completed chemotherapy, and now he’s updating fans on the next steps.

Wednesday would’ve been a chemo day for Mark, and taking to Twitter he says he’s “grateful” he doesn’t have to have anymore. Well, he'll know for sure on September 29th, when Mark says he’s due for a scan to see “if it worked.”

“Today I’m grateful to not be going in for chemotherapy. It’s been three weeks since my last treatment. Normally I’d be going in today,” he writes. “‘Normally.’ Damn. Getting pumped full of poison every three weeks is my normal.”

Elton John Is Getting Hip Surgery So He Postponed His European Tour

Hip surgery is in ELTON JOHN's future. He's going to need it after taking a hard fall this summer. 

He said, quote, "At the end of my summer break, I fell awkwardly on a hard surface and have been in considerable pain and discomfort in my hip ever since. The pain has continued to get worse and is leading to increasing difficulties moving."

But before surgery, he's gotta power through one more performance. He's doing a five-song set at the Global Citizen Live charity festival on September 25th.  (For info on how to watch, click here.)

Unfortunately, he had to postpone his European tour dates to 2023.  BUT he is optimistic that he will be healed and ready to resume the "Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour" in New Orleans in January. 

Elton said, quote, "It breaks my heart to keep you waiting any longer . . . I promise you this, the shows will return to the road next year and I will make sure they are more than worth the wait."

Bring Me The Horizon Shares New Music Video

Bring Me The Horizon is giving fans a preview of their next “POST HUMAN” project. The band has dropped a music video for their song “DiE4u.”

The band has been teasing their follow-up to 2020’s “POST HUMAN: SURVIVAL HORROR,” which is due in early 2022. Speaking to NME, frontman Oli Sykes explains that the lyrics of “DiE4u” revisit his battles with addiction.

“I’m tackling the song as if this unhealthy obsession I have is a relationship – almost like a mistress,” he says. “This song is triumphant for me in a way because it’s me finally accepting that I’m not someone who can drink alcohol, smoke weed, or do any of these things because I just have a problem with it and it always goes down the same road.” Check it out to the right.
