iTunes Radio works with my headphone controls.
Have you tried a reset?

Yes. What headphones do you have? Do the lock screen controls work with your iTunes Radio also?

I am having a similar problem with my iPhone 4s after the upgrade to iOS 7. The Play, FF, REW buttons on the Lockscreen are not working. I perfomed a power off/on too - with no assistance. I have not tried a headset yet. Also, I found that this problem is also present in the Homescreen after minimizing the music app. Hard to believe Apple missed this one - especially since they are supposed to be all about loving Music..... Hope they fix this one quickly...

Well, I just performed another Power Off and then Back on again - and all seems to be working now with controls via the Control Panel and with a headset ....

I had a similar problem. I went ahead and rebooted the phone (holding the home key and power button) and once it restarted it was working like i was supposed to. I suggest trying this and if it does not work call apple support. Good Luck!

@JupiterJoe. I had a similar problem and had to do an All Settings Reset to get them to work again on the lock screen and in the control center. Power Cycling, Hard Resetting, did not fix it, just resetting everything did the trick though.

Reseting the iPhone (power cycle) does fix the problem, but then it comes back again. I haven't determine what makes the issue come back. I would guess it's some combination of minimizing iTunes or locking the phone while in iTunes.
Either way, Apple, fix this!!! It's very annoying to have to unlock my phone, open itunes, go to now playing, and then hit pause when my boss walks in my office.

I too have this problem -- power cycling does fix it -- but it always comes back. I don't think it's related to iTunes. Definitely ***** -- espeically as this also affects bluetooth controls.

I have an iPhone 4s on iOS 7, chiming in to say I'm having the same problem. Restarting the phone works briefly, but the problem comes back. Lock screen controls for audio become unresponsive, but it's not limited to the music app. It also applies to Rdio's music streaming app, and Downcast, a podcast app. I'm assuming it applies to pretty much all the music apps.
It's also not just the lock screen controls, it's also Bluetooth controls, both in my car (Mazda 3) and a wireless Bluetooth speaker (Big Jambox).
Like restarting the phone, repairing the Bluetooth devices fixes the problem briefly, but it comes back again quickly.
It sounds like an OS problem, I hope it's fixed soon.

I too have the same problem. In fact I received two calls while listening to iTunes Radio and the radio playback didn't pause during the conversation. So I could hear both in my ear at the same time, very distracting. I had to unlock the phone, go to Music, Now Playing and press pause from there to pause the music so I could hear the caller, very annoying. Just did a hard reboot and it's working how it should but given the comments here, I'm guessing I should expect that hidden functionality to come back.
I also hate that iTunes Radio doesn't have a listed history to go back and down-vote songs, but that's a separate issue I'll find a different place to complain about.

Restarting of my iPad mini fixed the issue of controlling iTunes while on the locked screen.
