Taylor Swift New Album Rumors Heat Up

(Radio.com) There are numerous indications that Taylor Swift might actually release a new album before the end of the month, reports Time. This is despite Big Machine Label Group President and CEO Scott Borchetta denying that anything new is coming from this month.

Judging from current clues and past patterns, many Swift fans predict an album release date on October 23 and they present some convincing evidence.Swift has a couple of big gigs lined up.

She is scheduled for a pre-Super Bowl show in February and a performance at the Grand Prix in Austin, Texas on October 22 (one day before the predicted album drop date). These will be her first live performances since the end of her 1989 tour.

Also, October has been the choice month for four out of five Swift album releases. Typically, an album that comes out in the fall has a better chance of major holiday sales than a release that hits earlier or later in the year.

And, Swift is pretty much due to release a new record. She has put out an album every two years since her eponymous debut: Taylor Swift came out in October 2006. Fearless dropped in November 2008, Speak Now was released in October 2010, Red hit in October 2012 and 1989 came out in October 2014. The speculation continues here.

Lady Gaga's Full Dive Bar Performance of 'Million Reasons' Goes Online

(Radio.com) If you missed the Facebook live stream of Lady Gaga's first dive bar show in Nashville or the Bud Light preview wasn't enough to satisfy your curiosity, the beer giant released a full video of the singer performing her newest single "Million Reasons" on that intimate night.

Gaga originally premiered the song at The 5 Spot venue in East Nashville, according to Radio.com's own Robyn Collins, who was on hand to watch the show.

In the video, Gaga says by way of introduction, "My name is Lady Gaga. Tonight, if you could just call me Joanne." Wearing a large pink Stetson hat and a black bejeweled cropped jacket over a black leotard, Gaga mainly keeps her face in her hat's shadow throughout the song. She turns at times to emote to her band members, but to the audience she keeps things mysterious.

The moving ballad fits the intimate space, which was packed with fans eager to see Mother Monster strip down her typically energetic, aesthetically large performances and constrain herself and her music to fit a different kind of venue. The songwriter who co-wrote "Million Reasons" with Gaga, Hillary Lindsey, was also on hand to sing harmony. Watch the video here.

Janet Jackson Confirms That She Is Pregnant

(Radio.com) After months of speculation, Jackson has now confirmed that she is pregnant at age 50, People reports. In April, Janet Jackson announced that she and husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, were "planning [their] family."

Since that announcement, Jackson's reps have declined to confirm any reports that she is imminently expecting a child, though paparazzi and tabloid gossip editors have made an effort to piece together the full story.

Janet's initial statement was ambiguous. In 2016, "planning a family" can mean any number of things--adoption, surrogacy, pregnancy--leading to confusion and curiosity about what the "plan" entailed. The magazine published a photo of a serene Janet wearing bold spectacles and a turtleneck dress on a beach.

The superstar issued a simple statement to accompany the photo: 'We thank God for our blessing." See the photo of the expecting Jackson here.

Nick Jonas Releases Spooky 'Voodoo' Video

(Radio.com) Nick Jonas has released a new music video for the track "Voodoo" which draws inspiration from the spooky, supernatural underbelly of New Orleans, Louisiana.

The clip features Jonas partying after dark in the Big Easy, hopping around bars and rooftops as he rapidly loses his bearings. The city around him blurs, animated elements are laid over Jonas and his surroundings, and the whole story descends into a kind of alternate reality.

The clip comes just one day after Nick's brother Joe moved in on his territory with a steamy, shirtless bid for fans' attention. Though Nick's video errs on the modest side (for him) it comes just in time for Halloween. Preview the "Voodoo" video here.

(Radio.com) Rick Ross has released a music video for his track "No U-Turns," where he shows what happens when you jump sides. "Switch sides you better stay there," he raps on the chorus.

Ross is living the big life now, hanging with confidante–and the music video's possible gang boss–Fred Williamson in his plush study, but when he leaves those safe surroundings and ventures out onto the street he finds not everyone has his back.

As Ross walks towards his car counting a serious stack of cash, he notices two men watching him from another vehicle. They follow him as he gets in a gorgeous blood red Cadillac convertible and pulls away. Shots of Ross driving the car while the men continue to tail him are intercut with landscape shots of the freeway shown upside down. When someone double crosses Ross, the world gets flipped upside down. Read more and watch the video here.

Blake Shelton Gets Payback From Jimmy Fallon

(Radio.com) The last time Blake Shelton was in New York, Jimmy Fallon made him try sushi on the air for the first time. So the TV show host decided it was the country singer's turn to introduce him to something new.

"Being the nice guy that I am, I thought I'd give you a chance for some payback," Fallon says in a late night sketch. "Now you're going to make me do something I've never done before — milk a cow."

Dressed in overalls, flannel, a cowboy hat and a red bandanna, Fallon asks Shelton if he overdressed. "You dressed very disrespectful. Do you think this is a game? This is serious," Shelton deadpans. "First of all, this is Oreo. You're about to be touching her in a very private area which is totally normal if you act normal about it and you don't dress like Woody from Toy Story when you do it."

While Shelton demonstrates the best way to delicately milk a cow, Fallon reaches for his bowl of cereal before performing the task at hand. "Are you kidding me right now? What are you doing?" Shelton asks in disbelief.

Fallon is unsuccessful in his first attempt to milk Oreo, so Shelton helps out until the comedian gets the hang of it. Watch the fun as Shelton then convinces Fallon to take a shot of the milk here.
