Plus, Tame Impala love Rihanna’s cover, Shawn Mendes and Halsey announce tour dates and more.


■ Out of nowhere, Britney Spears broke the Internet when she posted three slow motion videos of her striking pose after hairflip to Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats‘ “S.O.B.”

We’re not sure what inspired her to roll with that particular song, but it certainly caught the attention of lead singer Nathaniel Rateliff, who in return, honored the queen with a similar video of his own:

“The Roc Nation team got in touch with us here at Spinning Top letting us know that Rihanna loved the Tame Impala track ‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’,” they said in a statement. “They asked if she could cover the song for her new record. Kevin was more than happy to send it her way. We’re all really happy with how the song turned out, love it!” [Rolling Stone]

■ Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello is upset from remarks claiming she had a hidden agenda behind her song with Shawn Mendes a.k.a. the beginnings of a solo career.

“It’s very frustrating,” she told Seventeen Magazine. “It’s been very difficult to watch people criticize me and my intentions. It’s been sh–ty. They turned me [doing the song] into a conspiracy theory. We literally just wrote a song backstage, and it ended up becoming something awesome. It wasn’t a career move that I carefully planned out.”
