  1. The breakdown "every body's welcome, come on come on in"... those vocals are hers?! We've never heard that before.
  2. I caught wind of this a few days ago as well and I gave them the same advice as I gave Anthony. Apologize, retract / attempt to work it out amicably and out of court. This all seems like a giant headache and unnecessary stress for both parties. No one wins here.
  3. This whole thing is ridiculous in my opinion. There are bigger fish to fry.
  4. Alexa, play "Strip That Down" by Liam Payne.
  5. It pays to be a talented woman! Forbes released its annual list of music’s highest-paid people, and some of the placements might surprise you. Taylor Swift rules the chart – beating out every man or woman in entertainment. She pulled in $185 million in the last year thanks to the massive Reputation Tour and subsequent Netflix tour film, Forbes reports. That’s a 131% increase in revenue from 2018(!!!). She even outperformed her wildly popular 1989 Tour, which brought home $170 million for the singer in 2016. Swift made headlines this month when she penned a letter expressing disgust and sadness over Scooter Braun purchasing her old label, Big Machine Records, thus also owning her masters. Read more about that here. Elsewhere on the list is Celine Dion ($37.5 million) Lady Gaga ($39.5 million), Jennifer Lopez ($43 million), Ariana Grande ($48 million), Pink ($57 million), Katy Perry ($57.5 million), Rihanna ($62 million) and Beyoncé ($81 million). Here’s a list of the highest-paid women in entertainment: Celine Dion: $37.5 million Lady Gaga: $39.5 million Sofia Vergara: $43 million Jennifer Lopez: $43 million Ariana Grande: $48 million Judy Sheindlin: $49 million Scarlett Johansson: $56 million Pink: $57 million Katy Perry: $57.5 million Rihanna: $62 million Kim Kardashian West: $72 million Ellen DeGeneres: $80.5 million Beyoncé: $81 million J.K. Rowling: $92 million Kylie Jenner: $170 million Taylor Swift: $185 million Feel like a broke bitch yet?
  6. Beyonce curated a new album for The Lion King titled 'The Gift.' The record, which drops July 19, in addition to the film’s soundtrack, features global artists set to the sounds of Africa. “This is sonic cinema,” said Beyoncé of the new album in a statement. “This is a new experience of storytelling. I wanted to do more than find a collection of songs that were inspired by the film. It is a mixture of genres and collaboration that isn’t one sound. It is influenced by everything from R&B, pop, hip hop and Afro Beat.” “I wanted to put everyone on their own journey to link the storyline,” she continued. “Each song was written to reflect the film’s storytelling that gives the listener a chance to imagine their own imagery, while listening to a new contemporary interpretation. It was important that the music was not only performed by the most interesting and talented artists but also produced by the best African producers. Authenticity and heart were important to me.” Beyonce’s new song, “Spirit,” is anthemic, and larger than life. One of the film’s composers says it’s even bigger than “The Circle Of Life.” The singer voices Nala in the forthcoming film. Listen below:
  7. Kelly Clarkson is on the way to save pop music. We’ve been waiting for a moment like this. The Grammy award winning singer is reportedly combining pop with soul on her next album, and according to Internet buzz (never wrong), it’ll be huge. Rumor has it Kelly’s ninth studio album will feature some superstar producers and a few bops. There’s a particular quote is floating around the pop music corners of the web. It comes from an anonymous insider (again, never wrong) who have apparently been right about other music-related things in the past. “They’re aggressively searching for potential hit pop songs to create a monster pop album,” they write on TapaTalk. “There have also been writing sessions here in LA over the past couple of months with some extremely talented people. Very excited about this. Expect some big producers, too. They’re trying to get most of the recordings completed (if not all) before she starts taping her new talk show. I’m guessing a late fall/winter new album release.” Clarkson was recently quoted as saying the new music is “as if ‘Meaning of Life,’ ‘Breakaway,’ and ‘Stronger’ had a baby…” She added: “It’s a little bit more pop, but it’s still got the soulful stuff in there. I just was kind of in a different mood…” I’m crying. Don’t get me wrong, Meaning Of Life is a flawless record, but I miss my guilty pleasure pop jams from Kelly.
  8. This is not a drill. LOOK UP! That’s my wig in orbit after watching Lady Gaga’s new promotional video for Haus Laboratories, the pop star’s beauty brand. Gaga serves fierce lewks alongside half-a-dozen edgy models rocking wild Haus makeup. There’s so much to absorb here, but it’s important to note the commercial is soundtracked to production created by Bloodpop, Boys Noize and Tchami. Gaga is collaborating with Bloodpop on her sixth studio album, so this could very well be featured on the forthcoming record. Or, it was left on the cutting room floor and re-purposed for this advertisement. If this is what they chose to leave off the album, then we’re in for a real treat, because it hits hard. “The last thing the world needs is another beauty brand,” Gaga says in the vid. “But that’s too bad. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but at Haus Laboratories, we say beauty is how you see yourself. Your glam. Your expression. Your artistry.” Gaga also penned a note on social media. “I remember watching my mother put her makeup on every morning, basking in the glow of her power to put on her bravest face as the hard working woman she was,” she wrote on Instagram. “I then began to experiment with makeup as a way to make my dreams of being as strong as my mother become true. It was then that I invented Lady Gaga. I found the superhero within me by looking in the mirror and seeing who I wanted to be.”
  9. Mark Ronson and Camila Cabello unleash the "Find U Again" music video. Ronson’s new album, Late Night Feelings, is brimming with shimmering pop gems, including “Find U Again,” featuring Camila Cabello. The Grammy award winning producer dropped a video for the track. In it, Camila is a blonde femme fatale performer. She uses her sex appeal to seduce an elite team of bounty hunters, including Ronson. Camila’s alluring charm wins the producer over. He ends up rescuing her away from a life of danger and the two flee the scene together. Watch the Kill Bill-inspired clip below:
  10. Duh. Billie Eilish’s massive song, “Bad Guy,” off When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, is getting the remix treatment with Justin Bieber. The Biebs is very selective with whom he chooses to work with, but Billie’s rising superstardom is undeniable. At the time of posting, neither Eilish nor Bieber had announced the remix, however a low quality clip of it surfaced on the Interwebs. It features Eilish’s original vocals, the haunting production and new verses from Bieber. On it, Bieber sings about being a fellow bad guy. His vocals sound crisp, but at times are auto-tuned to the high heavens #VocalGymnastics. He even growls during the transition into the next half of the track. They both chant, “I’m the bad guy.” The remix is something no one asked for, but it’ll certainly breathe new life into it (not that “Bad Guy” was underperforming). Stay tuned…
  11. Beyonce's secret song could eclipse one of the greatest soundtracks of all time. Lebo M, who co-curated the original soundtrack for The Lion King, as well as the new one, believes Beyonce’s contribution could outperform “The Circle Of Life,” which is arguably one of the most-famous songs of all time. In a new interview, Lebo was grilled to divulge information regarding the new Bey track, which is still unnamed. Though he wouldn’t reveal anything, he’s confident it’ll be massive. “I can be ambitious and say I have a feeling the song just might be bigger than ‘Circle Of Life,’” he said. The TBA song is track #14 on the forthcoming soundtrack (our July 11), which would place it in between “Reflections of Mufasa” and before “The Battle for Pride Rock” – a perfect time for Nala to sing to Simba before he heads to battle. Check out the full tracklist here. The Lion King director, Jon Favreau, had this to say about Nala’s expanded role: “In the original film, her role is not as large as in the stage production, and we definitely drew inspiration, and that was one of the areas where we were going to expand this.” The Lion King hits theaters July 19.
  12. Ariana Grande explains why she broke down into tears. The pop star is at the peak of her superstardom, and while she has a lot to be grateful for, the singer is still dealing with haunting memories from the past. In the span of just two years, Ariana dealt with a terrorist attack at a concert in Manchester, the dissolution of her engagement with ex-fiance Pete Davidson, and the untimely death of ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller. During a performance of “R.E.M.” at her most-recent Sweetener Tour show, Ariana burst into tears. She took to social media afterward to explain. Related: Ariana Grande Is Having A Tough Time On Tour “Tour is wild. life is wild. i’m grateful for the sea of love i have around me everyday and for the people who come to these shows and give all of us every ounce of energy they’ve got,” Ari wrote in a now-deleted comment. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to sing to thousands of people every night. it’s a dream come true. no matter how hard it gets.” “I’m grounded by gratitude and promise not to give up on what i’ve started,” Ari continued. “I feel everything very intensely and have committed to doing this tour during a time in my life when i’m still processing a lot … so sometimes i cry a lot! i thank you for accepting my humanness. I’m not sure what i did to deserve to meet so many loving souls every night / to feel so much love, but i want you to know that it really does carry me through, i feel it and i appreciate it.” She also offered a few words of encouragement for fans who share with the struggle in the pursuit of happiness, saying: “I’m sharing this because i’m grateful and because i want you to know that if you too are hurting, you can push through and are not alone,” she continued. “it is hard to balance taking care of the people around you, doing your job, and healing/taking care of yourself at the same time… but i want you to know, you aren’t alone and i think you’re doing great. love you.”
  13. That high note though? In case you’ve been living under a very large rock, there’s a viral challenge sweeping social media called the #BottleCapChallenge. Kick the cap off a bottle in style, post it on social media then challenge someone to follow in your high flying foot steps. Mariah, never one to follow the pack, decided to add her own spin to it (heh, get it). She pretended to get ready to bust out a move only to perform one of her iconic high-pitch notes instead, and the cap went flying into orbit. It was a hilarious take on the challenge, and it’ll be hard to top. Mimi has always played an exceptional game when it comes to social media, so I’m not surprised she aced this. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall watching Mariah’s discover what #BottleCapChallenge was in the first place, though. Watch the glorious moment unfold below:
