"Yes, people saw love. And guess what? That's what we wanted you to see! This is a love song, 'Shallow.' The movie, A Star Is Born, it's a love story. We worked so hard, we worked all week on that performance."
Ever since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper shared the Oscars stage for an intimate and cinematic performance of "Shallow" from A Star Is Born, the Internet has been speculating whether the co-stars' on-screen romance has seeped into real life. After all, they looked into each other's eyes, leaned into each other on the piano bench, and sang lovingly with their eyes closedthey must be in love, right?
To that, Lady Gaga responds with the most epic eye-roll in the history of time:
The singer added that it was Cooper's idea to have the audience lit with amber lighting, so she reached out to her lighting design contact from her own performances to help add that touch to their now-iconic Oscars moment. "Bradley wants honeycomb, and we've got to give him what he wants!" Gaga quipped.
Apparently Bradley designed the whole look, from the workers assembling the piano, to the audience being lit with amber, to the way it was shot. "From a performance perspective, it was so important to both of us that we were connected the entire time."
"I've had my arms wrapped around Tony Bennett for three years," she laughed. "When youre singing love songs, thats what you want people to feel."
"I guess we did a good job. Fooled ya!" she laughed.
She did rave about her costar's performance, though, and said he wasn't even nervous. "Bradley's a musician. My favorite thing about the whole experience was I was just so excited for people not only at home but our peers in the room to see him sing live. He sang every take in this movie live, every single time. All of it."
What a day for reveals! At noon today, Carly Rae Jepsen very casually dropped two new singles on the world, and it's the bubblegum pop music that we all so desperately need right now. In anticipation of her fourth studio album, Jepsen announced the release of "Now That I Found You" and "No Drug Like Me" on Twitter, and the results are exactly what you can expect from Jepsengood, unadulterated pop music.
Carly Rae Jepsen, the sparkliest and dreamiest of all hitmakers, is back with two new additions to her collection of hyperbolically emotive pop. Last we heard from her, she was "partying on her own" putting a characteristically optimistic spin on millennial's pop's sexless anxiety but now she's fallen back in love. Thank god!
"Now That I've Found You's" EDM-lite synths are so energetic and sparkly, the song will leave your shoulders dusted with glitter. And when she calls out on the chorus,"Don't give it up! Don't say it hurts!/ Cause there's nothing like this feeling baby/ Now that I've found out," a hibernating teenager will crawl out of recesses of your black heart, do a "High School Musical" and ask their crush to prom. CRJ expertly captures that miracle moment of love, when you're first rolling on the drug of togetherness.
The singles stay along the same lines of Jepsen's previously released work, with "Now That I Found You" finding Jepsen flexing her upbeat synth pop muscles harder than ever. The refrain heavy chorus is the trademark of Jepsen's signature flavor of banger. The more subdue "No Drug Like Me" tells the story of blossoming love. In short, if you want a break from all the heaviness in the world, Jepsen has your back.
"No Drug Like Me" brings out Jepsen's more sultry side, incorporating R&B influences and a thumping bass line. She says that the song reveals "a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I'll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself."
Jepsen confirmed that she'll release a new, long-anticipated project in 2019. For now, these two new songs make the perfect pair, and I've been satiated after years of waiting for new music from my Canadian queen Carly Rae. Plus, what more could the gays want than a collaboration between CRJ and the Fab Five?

One fan even believed that the video is a sign of good things to come, tweeting, "I will forever stan this multi talented queen. She is making moves and influences in pop culture and I cannot wait for her to blossom and just flex on the music scene."
The Juice singer started the #FluteAndShoot social media challenge last year, which Will Ferrell in character of Ron Burgundy responded to with his own performance. Lizzo posted the clip to Instagram, along with the caption: YOURE GOIN DOWN, BURGUNDY!!!
After showing off her flute-playing skills in an audition for the role of Ursula in The Little Mermaid, Lizzo has again impressed the Internet with her lifelong talent as an instrumentalist. In a brand new video, the rapper recreated the famous Anchorman jazz flute scene, and it is everything.
For her answer to Will's challenge, she created her own version of the club in which Ron first performs the jazz flute. However, her establishment is named Lizzo, naturally, and Este Haim makes an appearance, encouraging Lizzo to perform. The video which is titled "The Legend of Lizzo" has the rapper impressing the club with her jazz-flute playing skills. For her version of the scene, Lizzo borrows a few moves from Ron, adding a dash of flute to her recently released single "Juice." Performing on stage, she launches into a rendition that features her stomping on tables, popping in under a bathroom stall, and, of course, a finale with flames.
The clip sees her at a jazz bar with Este Haim, where she reveals that she dabbles in jazz flute, before accepting a request to perform on stage and unleashing a flute rendition of her recent single Juice with pyrotechnics included.

The team behind Scotland's TRNSMT Festival has responded to criticism of the event's 2019 line up.
The bill was unveiled a few hours ago, and contains an all-male batch of headliners: George Ezra, Stormzy, and Catfish & The Bottlemen.
Talking to NME, Ellis mentioned that the line-up displays a few of the largest feminine names of the second, and reiterated his remark to creating feminine artists as a way to make them the headliners of tomorrow.
One other account claimed that feminine acts solely accounted for twenty p.c of the line-up, and confirmed the massive gaps that happen when ladies are eliminated.
We attempt to have extra females on the invoice. Jess Glynne is an enormous artist and she or hes there. Would I choose to have extra feminine artists on the invoice? Sure. But it surelys additionally about creating feminine artists to make them into headliners. We had Sigrid on the King Tuts final yr, however weve now upgraded her to the primary stage, mentioned Ellis.
"We try to have more females on the bill. Jess Glynne is a big artist and shes there. Would I prefer to have more female artists on the bill? Yes. But its also about developing female artists to make them into headliners. We had Sigrid on the King Tuts last year, but weve now upgraded her to the main stage".
TRNSMT is run by DF Concerts, who also curate separate event Edinburgh Summer Sessions on Scotland's East Coast. Ellis continued:
"Youve got people like Florence & The Machine who we wouldve been delighted to have as a TRNSMT headliner, but shes coming in August so weve got her headlining two nights at Edinburgh Summer Sessions instead".
"Weve got CHVRCHES headlining the Summer Sessions too, so its not that were ignoring female artists, but you cant always get them on the weekend of your festival and sometimes youve got to get them at different points of the year".
"WE never win this! Thank you so much we have had absolutely no shame in asking people every day to vote for this," gushed Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

"This Is Us star Mandy Moore against the musician sickening and embarrassing."
Adams was accused of abuse by several women in a New York Times report published last week. It featured interviews with multiple women accusing Adams of behavior ranging from emotional manipulation to sexual misconduct, including accounts from his ex-wife Mandy Moore, Phoebe Bridgers, singer-songwriter Courtney Jaye, and others. Adams denied the allegations, addressing the Times report on Twitter.
Todd Wisenbaker, Adams guitarist, also shared a statement about Adams. In a post on Instagram, he wrote, this is incredibly hard for me to do but Ryan please get help. There were times when I chose to believe his insane version of the truth because it was easier than believing that anyone is capable of being this much of a monster, Wisenbaker continued. Ive recently learned that pretty much everything hes ever told me is a lie upon a lie upon a lie. There are excuses and denials for everything. Read Wisenbakers statement in full below.
None of them held him accountable, she said. They told him, by what they said or by what they didnt, that what he was doing was okay. They validated him. He couldnt have done this without them. Guys, if your friend is acting fucked up, call them out. If theyre actually your friend, theyll listen. Thats the way this all gets better.
He continued: Ive recently learned that pretty much everything hes ever told me is a lie upon a lie. There are excuses and denials for everything.
Some time ago, I told him to get help and he asked me to help him. I dont regret and will never regret trying to help someone in real need. I believe in forgiveness, redemption and recovery, but my life has become a complete shitstorm of someone elses utter delusion.
Weisenbackr added: I didnt want to say anything because Im actively afraid for the safety of my family, but I do realise that I have a responsibility to speak up. The women that spoke up are brave beyond words.
An exposé published by the New York Times on Feb. 13 accuses Adams of sexual misconduct, emotional abuse and manipulative behavior by a number of female musicians, including his ex-wife Mandy Moore and rising artist Phoebe Bridgers. One allegation comes from a female called Ava, who says she began talking to Adams online when she was only 14 years old. Their communication went from music to explicit texting and, at age 16, a Skype call in which he allegedly exposed himself to the teenager.
Jenny Lewis has spoken out in response to the sexual and emotional misconduct allegations against longtime musical collaborator Ryan Adams.
Lewis, who just unveiled her new song "Heads Gonna Roll" (on which Adams has a production credit) this week, released the following statement on Twitter Friday night (Feb. 15): "I am deeply troubled by Ryan Adams alleged behavior. Although he and I had a working professional relationship, I stand in solidarity with the women who have come forward."
Over the weekend, Bridgers who was one of several women who came forward to the New York Times in an exposé that levelled various claims against Adams took to her Instagram to address the situation.
Her lengthy Instagram post reads as follows:
It's been a weird week and I wanted to say a couple things. Thank you from my whole fucking heart to my friends, my bands, my mom. They all supported and validated me. They told me that what had happened was fucked up and wrong, and that I was right to feel weird about it. I couldn't have done this without them. Ryan had a network too. Friends, bands, people he worked with. None of them held him accountable. They told him, by what they said or by what they didn't, that what he was doing was okay. They validated him. He couldn't have done this without them. Guys, if your friend is acting fucked up, call them out. If they're actually your friend, they'll listen. That's the way this all gets better.
Ex-wife Moore, who hasn't released a full-length album since 2009, when she married Adams, says "music was a point of control" in her relationship with Adams, and that she was discouraged from working with other producers or managers. This came with emotional and psychological abuse, she says: "He would always tell me, Youre not a real musician, because you dont play an instrument.'"
The group had just come out to the stage and was in the middle of their second song when all of the sudden the power cut out. Everyones microphone went out one by one. The only one left with a hot mic was Flea.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers started their first Australian tour in 12 years in Hobart
A power disruption cut out the microphones during their second song
The band resumed the show after a 20-minute delay
The Californian group Red Hot Chili Peppers had opened the sold-out show with their 2002 hit Can't Stop.
They were halfway through their second song when the power was cut to their sound system.
A concertgoer told the ABC the band's microphones cut out one by one, until bass player Flea was the last member standing.
"Id hate to be the person responsible for the power cutting out on the RHCP, one fan tweeted of the technical mishap. Another said: Having some significant tech issues in Hobart. But Flea is still a god."
Malone started his set with an emotional acoustic performance of Stay complete with moody fog and a skull-adorned jacket. He showed off his amazing vocal chops and only made us love him more.
He then lightened the mood with a rendition of Rockstar before transitioning into his collab with the Chili Peppers. Malone played guitar with the band for Dark Necessities and sang backing vocals.
Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis even took his shirt off during the set, which was somewhat confusing but we dont hate it.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers proved themselves capable of keeping the show going no matter what. After a power outage interrupted their set after the first song, RHCPs Fleatook it upon himself to keep the crowd entertained.
"Ive been trying to get some sleep because Im on showbiz time."
A Star is Born received eight nominations for the Oscars, including for Best Picture. And while Gagas co-star Bradley Cooper was nominated in the Best Actor category, he was notably snubbed for Best Director the film is his directorial debut.
Speaking about the snub, Gaga told The Los Angeles Times: Well, you know, you never know whats going to happen. But at the end of the day, he knows that hes the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast. I know that hes so happy that weve all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition.
I dont register this film in my mind as a time in my life when I filmed a movie, she told me. I register it as a time in my life when I became somebody else, and Bradley became someone else, and we lived those characters and fell in love. A day like today, then, lets her recapture the magic of that time with Ally and Jackson Maine. I feel them very much alive, Gaga said. And I think I always will.
Everyone who worked on this film truly risked putting themselves out there in the hope that in doing so people will connect and feel something deep and personal the way films have made me feel since I was a kid, he said. When I got this opportunity I knew I had to risk it all because I may never get another chance so to be here today in a place where people who have seen the film are talking about how it makes them feel, something deep that simple human thing that we need each other and the Academy to recognise that this morning I just am so grateful.
It was an unexpected announcement given the fact that theyve been in an on-off relationship for the past three years. Katy Perrytook fans by surprise when she posted a picture of her pretty floral ring and announced that she was engaged to Orlando Bloom on Valentines Day. Revealing the news on Instagram, she captioned the picture, Full bloom. News that the two were seeing each other first emerged when they were spotted paddle-boarding together in Italy, with Bloom raising eyebrows by going completely nude.
On one hand, we're always here for an unconventional engagement ring, especially when that means unique shape and stone. Whatever this pink center stone may besome are guessing that it's a pink diamond, others are saying it could be a rubywe love that she's rocking something that's not a ginormous clear diamond.
He estimates that the ruby is about 2 carats and the diamond halo is 2.5 carats, making the entire engagement ring more than 4.5 carats altogether. E! reports the ring would retail for approximately $5 million.
When you wear rings with larger carat, higher-grade gemstones aligned with a specific planet, it strengthens the area of your life that the planet governs, says Askinosie. Wearing a combination of diamonds and high-quality pink stones on your ring finger activates your connection to Venus and its love energy. In my opinion, this is one of the most powerful gemstone combinations for wedding or engagement rings. This ring also has eight diamonds surrounding the central gemstone, which represents the power of their love and a prosperous relationship.
He also isnt surprised to see Perry and Bloom get a non-traditional engagement ring. It fits their personality. Theres a growing trend in couples wanting to step out of the box and buy a one-of-a-kind engagement ring, Mobley says. My guess is that Katy has a special connection to the color red which is why Orlando choose a ruby.
"In the past if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down, Smith captioned the photo. Yesterday I decided to fight the fuck back. Reclaim my body and stop trying to change this chest and these hips and these curves that my mum and dad made and love so unconditionally. "
In 2015, he told 60 Minutes Australia that hes more offended when people make comments about his weight than when he hears slurs about his sexuality.
I think just because Ive accepted that, if someone calls me a faggot, its like, I am gay, and Im proud to be gay, so theres no issues there, he said at the time. If someone calls you fat, its like, thats something I want to change.
While Smith made headlines for losing a reported 50 pounds after his 2014 debut album, In the Lonely Hour, rocketed him to stardom, he said he remained a bit obsessive about his weight.
When I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasnt happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved, he told V Magazine in an interview conducted by Sarah Jessica Parker. I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.
Smiths photo was snapped by LA-based queer artist and photographer Ryan Pfluger. The image shows Smith on the beach at sunset, shirtless and untouched.
Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldnt think those things, Smith continued. Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger. I have never felt safer than I did with you.
"I remember seeing her and I was like, Oh my god, like Fantasy and Honey, recalled Alex Pall. And she was like, Dude, I love you guys."
"I remember seeing her and I was like 'Oh, my God. "Fantasy" and "Honey,"' and she was like, 'Dude, I love you guys,'" Alex told the hosts. "And we're like, 'Wow, you know who we are?' and she was like, 'One Direction, right?'" Cue the hysterical laughter from everyone in the room, including Alex and Andrew themselves. There's no doubt that experiencing something like that was a tad embarrassing for all parties involved, but Mariah being the queen that she is responded to a clip of the interview on Wednesday to poke a little fun at herself and the group. "@TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song 'That's What Makes You Beautiful," she tweeted, jokingly alluding to One Direction's 2012 song.
It looks like Carey realized her mistake as she tweeted a video of the interview. The "Hero" singer showed that she has an incredible sense of humor by joking that she loves The Chainsmokers' song, "What Makes You Beautiful." As you probably know, the track was one of One Direction's hits.
Carey caught wind of the clip and responded on Twitter on Wednesday night, poking fun at herself with a tweet that read, @TheChainsmokers of course I know you!! I love your song Thats What Makes You Beautiful,' referring to the 2011 One Direction single.
Im very forgetful, Carey said of meeting Lopez. Apparently Im forgetful because I dont remember the fact that it was just like, Hi, Im so-and-so and then move on.
I was like Oh my God. Fantasy! Honey! And she was like Dude, I love you guys!, said Alex Pall, who explained that he was shocked that a mega-star like Carey knew about The Chainsmokers.
Valentine's Day is just two days away, but Ciara has already started the celebrations early. The 33-year-old put on quite the sexy performance in her music video for new single, Greatest Love.
Pushing about the love she has for her husband, Ciara sang, "I shouldve known when you took my son as your own / I aint saying I aint like all the carats and the stone / Its just your love that I want / Now its you and me against, gainst the entire world, the entire world / I see our love when I look at our baby girl, Im a lucky girl.
The song, produced by Jasper and Rod Cameron, is the kind of slow bop I'll be body rolling into spring with; It picks up right where 2013's "Body Party" left off. But "Greatest Love" is, first and foremost, a love song for Ciara's husband Russell Wilson. Lines like "I should've known when you took my son as your own" and "I see our love when I look at our baby girl, I'm a lucky girl" are direct references to their blended family. Ciara's oldest son is with rapper Future and, speaking of him, I couldn't help but wonder if this line was about their breakup: "Ask God to take out everything toxic in my life and baby, he did."
The video comes after the Grammy winning singer announced another endeavor last week, her Beauty Marks Entertainment company - a company where music intersects with fashion, tech, film and philanthropy.
Speaking at the 2019 MAKERS conference, she couldn't help but gush about her man Russell and his ongoing support.
'I'm a strong woman but I need a strong man by my side, and I know I can do anything that I put my mind to,' she told Yahoo Lifestyle.
'But I think at some point in time its good to let somebody also do some stuff for you too. The best thing is when you have a man thats strong. A strong man thats smart and wise and also loves you and has your back and lifts you up and empowers you.'
"To help ease the stress of planning the perfect Valentines Day, we wanted to show our fans some love by curating an album so seductive that it would make Cupid himself blush and is guaranteed to end your night with a bang."
Pornhub is not only supplying customers with the right moves for Valentines day. Its also trying to supply their audience with the essential tunes.
All the songs remain rather NSFW with the lyrical content all revolving around some rather explicit activities. Regardless of the content, its a unique move for the largest adult website, and marks a well-timed venture for the organization considering the growing influence hip-hop has had over the past several years.
On the album, Corey Price, the Vice President of Pornhub said, To help ease the stress of planning the perfect Valentines Day, we wanted to show our fans some love by curating an album so seductive that it would make Cupid himself blushand is guaranteed to end your night with a bang. With over 100 million people visiting Pornhub daily, we know what gets people in the mood. When you feel like the night is about to reach its crescendo, dim the lights and throw this album on. Youll thank us later.
Lil Xan, who includes his track 'Shake It' on the album, shared his excitement for being featured in the project: "I knew this song was the perfect fit for Pornhubs first album. I love what theyre doing with this."
In other news, Pornhub also announced that for Valentine's Day only it will be granting free access to Pornhub Premium.
It's a six-track, all-original whirlwind of bedroom exploits. It has some incredibly romantic moments, like when 6ix raps "Beat the pussy/ put it on ice/ fuck around I'll make you my wife/ put you in a brand new ride" or when Xan pleads "please give me some brain." Swoon!
K-pop fans got some pretty exciting news last night when BLACKPINK announced that they will be bringing their tour to North America, Europe and Australia later this year.
Blinks - the name of the group's fans - have gone wild on social media about the news and some are hoping that a new album is on the way.
One said: "Only 2nd week of Jan and #BLACKPINK be feeding us! 2019 is our QUEENS year!"
Another said: "2 years, only 9 Songs and not even a full album but still they got a world tour. This is the power of Blackpink and Blinks"
However, some fans have expressed concerns about how the group will fill a tour show, with one Blink asking: "Isn't it early for a world tour with 9 songs".
The popular girl group and the prominent indie rockers will appear at both weekends of Coachella in April. BLACKPINK, the first-ever K-pop group to play Coachella, also recently announced that theyll be touring in North America, but have yet to announce any further information or dates.
Tell me what you want, what you really, really want. Do you wanna see the Spice Girls reunion tour next year with a handful of the biggest celebrities? Well, first, you gotta watch Spice Girls superfans Emma Stone and HAIM recreate the music video dance for Stop.
Seeing the show with Stone would be awesome for a number of reasons, but mostly because Stone is a certified Spice Girls stan. The ladies announced their reunion tour in November 2018 around the same time Stone was doing promo for her film The Favourite. During a stint on The Tonight Show, Stone jokingly told Jimmy Fallon that she changed her name from Emily to Emma because of Baby Spice.
As for the Stone/Haim connection, were guessing they met through Taylor Swift? Swift and Haim have collaborated and even vacationed in Hawaii together; Stone has been in the Swift squad since day one, so it all checks out. Spice Girls reunion tour tickets are available on their website or you can enter the Omaze contest for a chance to roll up to the show with your VIP girl gang.
The Spice Girls, minus Victoria Posh Spice Beckham, are getting back together for a U.K. Stadium tour that opens in Manchester on May 29 and finishes with three nights in London beginning June 13. After the official announcement was made, tickets sold out so fast that the gals added more concert dates. So, yeah, this is a big deal.
Fans can enter for the chance to win by donating funds through Omaze.com/GirlPower. All proceeds are going to support PATH, Child Mind Institute, The Los Angeles LGBT Center, Comic Relief U.K., Girl Up, and Girls Education via Charities Aid Foundation of America.
And think about it you guys, think of how much fun this is going to be, us all together at a freaking Spice Girl concert, Este says before lip-syncing the final verse and walking off with a smirk.
Are we sure that we want her to come with us to that? Stone jokes, as the other girls assure her that Este is just a little excited.
"I think it just comes down to -- we don't want more than everyone else."
The My Church singer-songwriter, 27, announced her engagement to Hurd, 32, on Sunday, posting a series of photos in which she shows off her new accessory. In one, she holds a Corona Light while resting her hand on Hurds leg, a nod to the lyrics of Love In a Bar, the single he wrote about their relationship.
And I feel like the last two years, after touring and growing up a bit more and obviously Ive found somebody that understands me now, and have fallen in love and gotten married my [perspective on] songwriting is just a little different. Its a little lighter than it was the first time around! she says with a laugh, adding, "Im not quite as bitter."
This album is really about self-acceptance and partner acceptance, she says. The first half of the album is very self-reflective, and it's more about me. Then the second half of the record transitions into me being the counterpart to somebody else. I didnt have any love songs on [debut album] Hero, so there are a lot more on this one, and I think thats been a really beautiful side to being a touring musician: You never see the person, you miss them all the time, and hes a musician as well, so were constantly writing with each other or about each other. A lot of these songs reflect that."
Another shows the couple gazing into each others eyes.
Morris simply captioned the images, Yes. with an engagement ring emoji.
Hurds most recent Instagram post was a snap of him and Morris heading out on a boat ride with the date of the proposal, July 3, as the caption.
If you dont know, let me educate you. It stands for Work This P-ssy and its the final track off of Taylors KTSE album. The song is practically made for Ball culture, which is known for its voguing and strutting, and Teyana is ready to unleash the House of Petunia!
With her quadruple-threat credentials, Teyana Taylor is something of a unicorn in the world of music. Her most recent album, K.T.S.E., which she released last year on Kanye Wests label GOOD music, garnered much critical acclaim; shes been a force on the runway as well; first at Yeezy in 2016, then at Philipp Plein two years ago, where she had the audience enrapt, vogueing along the catwalk. Did we mention that shes not only a peerless dancer (need I remind you of that Fade music video?), but also an actress, too, playing a role in last years The After Party. With her new self-directed video for WTP, Taylor proves shes slick behind the camera, tooand that officially makes her a quintuple (!) threat.
The video is a kind of Cinderella story focusing on the new York Ball scene. Taylor plays the inconspicuous newcomer, who reluctantly takes on her more experienced colleagues. With a little encouragement from her fairy godmother (also known as Mykki Blanco), she finally takes the plunge to throw herself onto the dance floor with a red hot wig, a black pvc bikini set with chain links, fishnet tights and an emerald fur coat.
You think you know the story of Cinderella you dont until you have watched Teyana Taylors WTP music video.
