21 JUL: Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington has died aged 41, LA County Coroner says. The coroner said Bennington apparently hanged himself. His body was found at a private home in the county at 09:00 local time (17:00 GMT) on Thursday. Bennington was said to be close to Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell, who took his own life in May. Formed in 1996, Linkin Park have sold more than 70 million albums worldwide and won two Grammy Awards. The band had a string of hits including Faint, In The End and Crawling, and collaborated with the rapper Jay-Z.

Via Snapchat, Aoki reveals that "Big Things" are on the way for the pair. _ Following Camila Cabello's departure from 5H, Normani Kordei's breakout Solange cover project, and Ally Brooke's "Mad World" cover, Jauregui is now the latest Fifth Harmony member to take a detour from the group's business for a bit. _ Late last year, Uncle Steve collaborated with Louis Tomlinson — another pop star who broke out from a talent competition–made group to fly solo — for "Just Hold On."
