Logic releases new track, “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” with blood-soaked music video

Def Jam RecordingsLogic has released the title track off his upcoming new album, along with a bloody music video.

"Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" finds Logic -- birth name Bobby Hall -- reflecting on the negative aspects of fame. He admits to insecurities and suicidal thoughts, but the song ends on an uplifting note with Logic rapping about his vision for a better future.

"Do what you love and do not give a damn/F*** all the haters you see on the 'Gram/Just mind your own business and be a good man," he raps.

In the music video, Logic starts the song as blood begins to flow from a gash on his neck. The wound gets worse and worse but he seems to numb to the pain, even lighting up a joint at one point.

The clip ends with a blood-soaked Logic smiling at the camera and walking away.

"I wrote this one in Blood," Logic says of the track on Twitter.

That's not the only writing he's been doing. While his new album doesn't yet have a release date, Logic's debut novel comes out next week. Supermarket, a dark thriller, hits shelves March 26.

Earlier this month, Madonna celebrated the 30th anniversary of the title track’s release and reminded everyone of the controversy the music video stirred back then.

"30 years ago today I released 'Like a Prayer' and made a video that caused so much controversy because I kissed a black saint and danced in front of burning crosses!” she wrote on Instagram. “I also made a commercial with PEPSI that was banned because my video was seen as inappropriate. ?????? Happy Birthday to Me and Controversy!"

Former “American Idol” contestants Gabby Barrett and Cade Foehner are engaged

ABC/Image Group LAAmerican Idol isn't just good at finding singing talent -- it's apparently good at finding love matches, too.

Last season's winner Maddie Poppe is dating her runner-up Caleb Lee Hutchinson, and now two other former contestants are engaged.

Gabby Barrett, 19, and Cade Foehner, 22, confirmed to People that they are getting hitched. The proposal took place at the L.A. hotel where they first met while competing on Idol.

Cade says that while he has been thinking about proposing for a while, he actually hadn't planned on doing it that particular day. But the fact that they were in the same hotel made it seem like the perfect opportunity.

"My sister overnighted the ring to our church," Cade says.

The young couple hasn't set a date yet, but say they want to get married in "colder weather." And, of course, judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan will all be getting invites.

"The judges are like family to us," Gabby says. "Idol was the very beginning of our love story and we would love for all of our family to be there."

The only other Idol couple to get hitched are Diana DeGarmo, the runner-up from season three, and Ace Young, a contestant on season five.
