Kahn quickly defended himself by insisting that the imagery in Taylor's new video are "not in [Beyonce's] art space." Now, Kahn has poked a stick into the Beyhive by saying Beyonce is the one guilty of theft, not Swift that Bey actually nabbed the look of "Formation" from Swift's "Bad Blood."
"['Look What You Made Me Do' is] not 'Formation' at all," he told the Los Angeles Times. "They try to say she's wearing a black crop top and Beyonce wore a black crop top. But they don't realize in 2015 in 'Bad Blood,' Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyonce copied 'Bad Blood.'" Read morehere.

They all got recognition, but so did Selena Gomez the first woman to achieve 100 million followers on Instagram. The "Bad Liar" singer appears on one of several covers honoring the women-focused feature. TIME calls Gomez "The Tastemaker" and in the interview, Selena says she's glad she grew up before social media crept into every area of American life.
"I am glad I grew up in the time that I did," she said. "I think it's really hard to be a kid now, especially with social media. I can't imagine what it would be like to grow up with that. It's already difficult to get up every day and just feel good about yourself without seeing the highlights of everyone else's life. That's why I like being vulnerable with my fans on social media. I like that they've seen my mistakes." Read morehere.

'I'm a little nervous," Lynch admits. 'But the last thing I want for chapter three is 'Oh, this is just a new take on what we've heard for the last few years.' I hope people see a side of me they haven't seen yet."
Lynch has already seen success with his seductive lead single "Seein' Red" and its follow-up the sentimental "Small Town Boy," a song the singer says is about the type of love we're all chasing down and trying to hang onto. "I connected to this song because it speaks of a true love and a feeling you have with someone and an emotional connection that's very intimate."
'There's a song for every emotion I'm feeling right now," he explains. 'All these songs are a behind-the-curtain-look at my heart and soul, and it's so diverse because I listen to all kinds of music. Depending on what mood I was in, I would start the session out with 'Hey, I was listening to Sugar Ray last weekend in San Diego, I want to feel like that today.' Or 'I just saw Imagine Dragons, let's try something like that.'"
One of the album's highlights includes 'Love Me or Leave Me Alone," a stripped down ballad that features Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild, who first heard the song during a post-show jam session and immediately claimed as her own.
"It came about in a simple guitar vocal form. I played that demo for Luke Bryan and Little Big Town on Luke Bryan's bus. And they flipped out. And it's so cool to have artists that I look up to really kind of stand up and give me a thumbs up and say, 'This is a special song.'"
Lynch goes on to say, "I don't deserve to have Karen on my album at all it's just a dream come true to have her lend her voice, her talent, her emotion to the lyric. It's got to be hands down one of my favorite moments of my musical career." Read morehere.
