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 continueshere.
Recently, Rihanna posted a photo to her Instagram account which read, "none of my exes are married or in happy relationships so it's safe to say that I wasn't da problem lol."
And may speculated that a social media post from Drake was his response. "Too mix up in drama to free my mind but I'm praying for you even in your darkest times," he wrote in a post late Tuesday night. Check out both posthere.
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 videohere.
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 Jacksonhere.
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.

"We're working on the album with a new team: it's produced by James Ford [of Simian Mobile Disco], and he's helped us to make what we feel is a very incredible sounding record," singer Dave Gahan told Rolling Stone. "He was able to really guide us."
Proceeds from the tour will benefit charity:water, which brings clean water to communities around the world. "If you don't know charity:water, you should," guitarist Martin Gore told the magazine. "They're an amazing organization whose goal is to bring clean, safe drinking water to everybody on the planet. On the last tour, with our fans' help, we were able to raise over $1.4 million for charity:water. Those funds specifically brought clean water to people in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Rwanda."

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.

They follow him as he gets in a gorgeous blood red Cadillac convertible and pulls away.

When someone double crosses Ross, the world gets flipped upside down. Read more and watch the videohere.

And now she's got a new CoverGirl to help spread word about all the latest products. Except, in a fashion twist, her new partner is less of a CoverGirl and more of a CoverBoy.
Perry shared a photo on Instagram with 17-year-old makeup artist James Charles. "Just wrapped another great@COVERGIRL shoot," she wrote. "Honored to have the pleasure to announce the very first COVERBOY, James Charles! Follow him@JCharlesBeauty! #COVERGIRLJames#glam !" Read morehere.

"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 milkhere.
Miller started the song solo but then Grande appeared from stage left and hopped right in for her verse. Miller and Grande's body chemistry was hard to miss.
