Plus, Nick Jonas remains tight-lipped about dating Kate Hudson and MØ announced her new single.
■ Janet Jackson cancelled her Unbreakable Tour shows in Las Vegas scheduled for Oct. 9 and Oct. 10 at the Axis theater inside Planet Hollywood (where Britney Spears performs Piece Of Me) due to doctors’ orders to remain on strict vocal rest. Instead, they’re moving the shows to a new 20,000-seat arena in May.
Live Nation says ticket-holders will be refunded and have the first chance to buy tickets for the May 14 performance. Tickets go on sale Oct. 16, reports Billboard.
This marks the second occasion Janet Jackson has pulled out of Vegas commitments recently, the first being her performance at the iHeart Radio Music festival several weeks back due to “a recent ear issue [that’s] preventing her from flying.”
As of now, no other shows have been rescheduled aside from Vegas.

■ Capital FM re-wrote the lyrics to “What Makes You Beautiful” and made sure to include that Harry Styles likes (older) women:
■ Nick Jonas might be dating… Kate Hudson? If him dodging the question in a recent interview as any indication, the answer is yes.
“Okay, I have to ask you and I hope you don’t get mad at me,” host Dana McKay said backstage at the Fillmore Silver Spring in Silver Spring, Md. “What was going on with you and Kate Hudson this weekend?”
Jonas’ lips are sealed. “I’m not gonna get mad at you, but I’m also not gonna talk about it.”
McKay responded: “You don’t kiss and tell?”
“I keep some things to myself,” he said. “It’s a strange place where a little thing can turn into a lot, but it’s about how much of that you kind of want in your world and just living your life and knowing that people will have their opinion.”
Sounds like a yes to us. [Us Weekly]
