But, like Tom Hiddleston's Belgium radio "interview" about his budding relationship with the pop star, we cry foul. And a source close to Harris does too. Out of the blue, Harris began responding to different comments and questions his followers left on his Instagram account. One Instagram user grabbed screenshots of all the responses Harris gave because he later deleted everything he wrote.
At one point a follower asked why he was bothering to respond in the first place and Harris wrote back, "because I'm interested in how their minds work at this point," referring to Swift's rabid and loyal fans. Elsewhere, Harris said he felt amazing and free. He also stated about their breakup and the way it was handled, "[Swift] controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on."
A source close to Harris told Entertainment Weekly that he wasn't the person behind the Instagram comments. He did, however, Snapchat a video saying he felt "sexy and free."
Take a look at some of his possibly fake responses here.
The terms and timeline for the solo album are still unknown. Since One Direction formed on The X Factor U.K. in 2010, the group has created four No. 1 albums and one No. 2 record.

Dig Your Roots' cover art features childhood photos of both men. "Our album cover says it all," Kelley said. "Tyler and I are continuing to grow musically and personally. We really wanted this album to reflect who we are and our lives in this moment, but also where we came from."
Hubbard added, "We both started out playing guitar, singing in church and writing songs so we wanted to let fans see our foundation-a deeper side to us. We couldn't have picked a more fitting title or image for Dig Your Roots." Read more here.
Clarkson shared that she signed a new contract with Atlantic Records. The company will be allowing her to make an "amazing soulful album," a project she has been wanting to do ever since she was a little kid. For those fans who have been clamoring for a country album, Clarkson praised Atlantic's country department and said that was a complete possibility down the road.
Clarkson also announced that on the last Friday of every month she will be sharing content fans can download for free at KellyClarksonLive.com. "I think there should be a reward for being so loyal and cool," she said. The things she shares every month will differ. "We've done so much stuff, and we have so many songs recorded from tour or just us in the studio or whatever," she explained. At times it will involve song downloads, at others it could be video content like the Facebook Live performances. Read more here.
A new Gucci track called "All My Children" hit the Internet last Thursday night, and explores his role as a figurative father to younger artists in the rap game.
"Stop that track to tell my children that I'm proud of them / Making rock stars out of trap boys," he raps. "And if we never talk again, still got your back boy/ This here is bigger than the game, deeper than rap, boy / Just ask around in East Atlanta, I'm the landlord." Check it out here.
If rumors are to be believed, Rihanna will contribute a track called "Sledgehammer" to the Star Trek Beyond soundtrack. Eagle-eyed pop followers noticed an ad for the song on iTunes, possibly a slip-up at Apple's marketing department.
The image features Rihanna dressed in otherworldly drag with details about the single and its Star Trek connection. The movie comes out June 22, so in the next few weeks we could add a new Rihanna track to her growing list of songs of the summer. Read more here.
Ellefson Coffee Co previously released a blend called Roast In Peace. Ellefson says: "My love for coffee has accompanied me around the world for my entire musical career. Just like the spirit of a culture or the melody of a song, the enjoyment of coffee brings people together and creates harmony among us.
"The beans in this bag are traceable to their global origin and exemplify the spirit and culture of the people who grew them. It is my aim to bring this roast to our tables and awake our taste buds, fire up our rock n roll spirits and continue the global fellowship of music, art and coffee. May you roast in peace."

When asked what responsibilities he has as a musician, he tells Full Metal Jackie: "That's a question I ask myself often. You know, 'what is my responsibility, if any?'
"Sometimes I think as an artist - in arts in general - you're a reflection of society and the state of it. We are the voice of society in a way. You can go down the route of taking yourself way too seriously that way. Sometimes I think as an artist, it's important to at least be an articulate commentator on the events of today."

Alongside Nashville-based Loving Mary, the rocker delivered Aerosmith's 1993 hit, "Cryin'", the title track to his solo record, and a cover of the 1967 Erma Franlin classic, "Piece Of My Heart", a tune also made famous by Janis Joplin.
Prior to the three-song set, Tyler joined host Matt Lauer to discuss the new project, which he co-produced with T Bone Burnett, Dann Huff, Jaren Johnston and Marti Frederikson.
Tyler will present the new music to fans during his first solo tour, "Out On A Limb", which starts in Las Vegas on July 2. Watch his Today show performances here.
The post-metal outfit reveal they'll perform their latest studio effort Mariner with singer Julie Christmas - who worked with them on the record - in a one-off performance at Leeds University Union.
Vocalist and guitarist Johannes Persson says: "The stars have aligned perfectly and I am going to have take back what I've repeated in numerous interviews this past year - that Mariner will not be played live, because it will. There are no plans to perform the album live in the UK again." Read more here.
And frontman James Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett have both encouraged Trujillo's Jaco documentary. Trujillo tells Metallica's So What blog: "I remember James sent me an iPhone photo that a friend of his took who happened to be at the Sweetwater Cafe event we had done for Jaco in Mill Valley.
"And he said it was really cool, which made me feel good. Why? Because he said his friend was there, and he said it was awesome. Rather than saying, you know, 'What the f*** are you doing?'
"So that made me feel good, and the fact that Kirk actually came out and jammed with me that night. You know, it was really, really fun, and he helped me celebrate something that's important to me, so that was really, really cool and encouraging." Read more here.
"I'm so excited to work on these iconic games to deliver what I believe will be one of my best albums," he said in a press statement. "I'm going to invite some of my friends to join me, and it'll be game on from the first beat."

"Hype" is the follow-up to Harris' recent hit collaboration with Rihanna "This is What You Came For," the pair's first project since "Here 2 China," from Harris' 2012 album 18 Months.
The first time Harris and Dizzee Rascal worked together was on Dizzee's first No. 1 single 'Dance Wiv Me," which was released in 2008. Listen to a 90 second sampling of "Hype" here.
DJ Esco has his fingerprint over all 16 tracks with Future appearing on 12. DJ Mustard, Metro Boomin and other producers lend their talents to several songs on the album. The features are a long list of big names, including Drake, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Young Thug and Rae Sremmurd.
The tracks span all kinds of rap styles. "Check On Me" feels like a tried-and-true Future song, whereas "Right Now" starts out with a Tupac sample before building into a big bass beat that's sure to make car speakers scramble. Future can't stop and he won't stop. Listeners can stream or download the album here.
The track was named after the famous Atlanta strip club and, presumably, one of the good days of the week to visit the joint. Jeezy teased the new song on Instagram, with a picture of him and his friends making it rain, supporting the song's theme.
Jeezy dropped his latest album, Church in these Streets, in November. Just before he unveiled his new LP, he released "Where I'm From." Last fall, Jeezy also featured on 2 Chainz's "BFF." Check out the new track here.
The show about behind-the-scenes concert personnel officially premieres Sunday night at 10:00 pm with the band set to appear in episodes 1 and 2. The band describes their experience on the set, watching in awe as Luke Wilson improvises and the Academy Award-winning Crowe directs.
"Our role is--we're the opening band for this made up fake band that's the headlining act of the show," explains pianist Kenny Hensley. "And we've apparently become more popular after agreeing to do the tour so we don't really want to be there. We want to be headlining our own gigs so we're just frustrated and annoyed and our tour manager is pissed off."
Crowe has the band playing pranks on the headlining act in order to get themselves kicked off the tour. They leave the tour though before getting kicked off, fictionally joining Neil Young's European dates. "The guys who's the tour manger for our band in the show is actually Neil Young's real tour manager," says Jonathan Russell. "So there's all kind of really cool connections and parallels."

The song is a sensual bedroom track about the jam Gates' lady enjoys, and how he likes to play that for her when they "jam" (wink wink). The video was shot in a beautiful home high in the hills above Los Angeles. Trey and Gates stand against that scenery to rap and sing in between shots that show each one getting down with their respective lovers.
Ty shows up toward the end, sitting at a piano and playing for his lady while he raps his verse. In addition to performing at Roots Picnic this fall, Gates will soon hit the road with Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa for their The High Road Tour. Watch "Jam" here.
