"I sat directly next to Niall from One Direction for 9 hours on my flight home from London last night. He was sick and asked for no selfies, but here is a pic I snapped when he was sleeping lol he was so friendly!" the fan writes alongside a photo of Horan asleep on the flight.
Horan was not happy when he saw the photo and spoke his mind on Twitter. "I think this s- is unreal," he writes. "I mean if you can't sleep on a plane without people taking photos of you, what can u do." See the photo here.
The rappers were out having a grand time on Monday (August 1) at Ace of Diamonds in Los Angeles (via TMZ). "I f- with 50," The Game told the cheering crowd. "What happened, that s- was 12 years ago."
He added, "Ain't nobody on that old s-." In May, The Game's newest signee Pharaoh Jackson said the rapper was contemplating a reunion with G-Unit. The Game squashed those rumors at the time, but with this latest appearance it's possible he and 50 could be plotting a fresh collaboration soon. Read more here.
With puppy in tow, Miley shared a video from the car of herself and her boo singing "Love Yourself," the passive-aggressive kiss-off ballad from Bieber's Purpose.
At one point, Liam seems to jar Miley from her distraction by raising a false alarm--"Woah!" Like any annoyed, unduly worried girlfriend, Miley politely asks him to stop as the camera cuts out. All along, Barbie da Beagle is just riding along, enjoying life in the fast lane. Read more here.
"One day it will make sense to do something together again but, right now, we're still focused on our individual careers and that's what's really important to us," the DNCE frontman tells the publication.
While Joe is touring with Selena Gomez overseas, brother Nick is performing with Demi Lovato. Recently, Joe made a stop on his brother's tour to reunite with Lovato and sing "This Is Me" and "Gotta Find You" together.
As Nick enjoys the solo artist life, Joe says he prefers being in a band. The slight difference of opinion and separate music careers haven't kept them apart though, as the two brothers recently moved in together. Read more here.
In the first Snap, Gomez looks to be in the hair and makeup stage before her show. With her hair in curlers and using Snapchat's popular butterfly crown filter, she lip syncs to one of her new songs playing in the background. "Now I'm stained by you / Like a coffee ring upon this table, I'm unstable / I'm stained," she mouths (via MTV). In a second Snap, Gomez shares a selfie with a pouty face. She writes, 'getting impatient -want to share moreeee."
Gomez dropped her last album Revival in October 2015, but it sounds as though she's been hard at work writing and recording new music. In June, she tweeted that she'd been recording in the studio bus and was close to finalizing a new album.
While fans wait for original music, they might be satisfied to learn that Gomez may have recorded her own version of Justin Bieber's upcoming collaboration with DJ Snake, "Let Me Love You." His version won't drop until August 5, but she teased a two-second clip of her version on Snapchat. That led some to speculate that DJ Snake's jam was actually a collab involving Bieber and Gomez, but he clarified otherwise. In the meantime, check out her captured Snaps here.
Auerbach's trademark bluesy vocals lead off the song, "I saw you standing in the rain/ You were holding his hand/ And I'd never be the same," Auerbach sings before Action Bronson comes in hot with a slick verse. Altogether, it's a little bit blues-rock mixed with pop and hip-hop.
Speaking about the track, Ronson said told Beats 1's Zane Lowe, "Bronson's verse is insane on it, I love it. It never had a home. We didn't finish it in time for Bronson's record, it wasn't right for mine, and then they heard it for the movie Suicide Squad. They dug it and they put it in this great scene with Will Smith and his character," Ronson explained. He hasn't seen the film yet, though. Like the rest of the world, he has to wait.
Suicide Squad's soundtrack promises listeners lots of big tracks. Skrillex and Rick Ross debuted their contribution "Purple Lamborghini" off that album last week. Listen to "Standing in the Rain" here.
The segment interviews artists after they've gone "shopping" at the music store to better understand the pop culture that's influenced them. The first album Staples pulls out of his bag is Fergie's The Dutchess. "Bangers, top to bottom," he said of the album. When asked about his favorite track, he said, "'London Bridge,' what you talking about?"
He also showed off Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures, which he admitted influenced his own Summertime '06. "A lot of people don't know that," he said.
Staples hadn't yet heard the soundtrack from Led Zeppelin's 1973 concert film The Song Remains the Same. "And I consider myself a very good connoisseur, so I'm going to listen to that definitely," he said. Since Joy Division ended up shaping Summertime '06, perhaps Led Zeppelin will find their way onto his next album? Watch the full interview here.
According to The Guardian, the pop star has dropped the case in hopes to release new music. However, her New York case against the producer will continue.
Kesha's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, said Kesha delivered 28 new songs to Dr. Luke's label, Kemosabe Records, where she is still signed. The singer hopes her new music will be released soon.
"We have conveyed to Sony and the label Kesha's strong desire to release her next album and single as soon as possible," Petrocelli wrote in a statement.
The Guardian reports that Kesha is currently appealing two rulings in New York that prevented her from breaking her contract with Dr Luke's label and that dismissed her claims of abuse. Read more here.
The pair of old souls joined together (apparently in someone's living room) to sing karaoke renditions of various Rogers and Hammerstein classics from Cinderella.
They started off with "In My Own Little Corner" and finished with "Impossible," that soaring classic that Whitney Houston and Brandy perfected in 1997. Watch Grande and MacFarlane get their Broadway on here.
During their latest studio update (their first attempt at an audio podcast), Shinoda and Delson answer fan questions with one Tweet asking "What is playing in studio when you guys aren't recording." It's likely that the fan wanted to know what music the guys were listening to. However, Delson jumped in with the non-musical answer of video games, specifically Just Get 10, a popular online puzzle. "Just Get 10 had wide adoption," says Delson. "That and Pokemon Go," interjects Shinoda. According to the duo, Just Get 10 was so addicting that the band members had to actually delete the app in order to stop playing, although they theorized that Joe Hahn is still playing in an attempt to beat Shinoda's high score.
Shinoda then praises Pokemon Go, explaining that he was a fan of Pokemon in his youth and wondered how well the game translates to those unfamiliar with the Pokemon universe like Delson. When asked if Shinoda played with the cards, he recalled playing the card game while on tour. "I love it. I know all the characters. For the record, I'm level 14 now, which is good." Listen to the full, and first audio podcast, from Linkin Park here.
Whether intentional or not, Miller's colorful video perfectly vibes with the chillness that is "Dang!" Against deep reds, golds and teals, he and .Paak deal with the frustrating experience that they're simply reliving the same breakup over and over again. They can't seem to escape the endless loop of their failed love lives.
Opening with .Paak singing on a bed as his lady packs her suitcase to leave, the video returns to that very moment around the halfway mark, repeating everything that happened in the first half to reiterate .Paak's chorus, "I can't keep losing you/ Over complications/ Gone too soon/ Wait!/ We was just hanging."

"I got a question for you," West asked the audience. "Is y'all ready for this album? I wasn't talking about [The Life Of Pablo]. I wasn't talking about Views. I wanna ask y'all right now: Are y'all ready for this album?"
According to NME, West then gestured to himself and Drake, who came out on stage. Check out a video that has been posted online to see it all unfold here.
Guitarist Bo Rinehart says, "[Bruce] Springsteen's Tunnel of Love was another example," noting that that 1987 album seemed like a big departure from Springsteen's earlier catalog. "And you go back and listen to that record, it's an amazing record."
As far as the backlash for sounding different, Bo says, "He survived it. And I think he had to make that record, and U2 had to make that record and do something different." Similarly, the band say that they needed to try something different this time around.
Singer/guitarist Bear Rinehart admits, "It's a little bit scary, to put something out that's that different. I don't think we chose it, it kind of chose us. The last record was really stripped down and acoustic, [it was] live takes, old school. And it was partly because we were fighting; we wrote the songs separately. [On] This record, we're in a completely different place, we got to spend a lot of time [together], we got a mountain house, and had a vision quest. We woodshedded, like we did back in the day. We put in a lot of the synth, and the beats; [it was] the opposite of what we were doing before. It felt fresh to us, and different. We didn't really think about being scared about it until it was all done."
Bo adds, "A couple of weeks before the release of the record, all of our families were telling us, 'This does not sound like you guys at all.'"Read more here.
