Fifth Harmony Unveils The Tracklist Of Their New Album

0

Fifth Harmony has been busy this week. The quartet kicked things off by revealing the cover of their self-titled third album, which was inspired by pop art, and then shared the tracklist. Which is surprisingly brief. The girl group’s latest only houses 10 songs including lead single “Down.” Of course, there will probably be bonus tracks and other retailer-specific exclusives. The other surprise is the lack of features. Apart from Gucci Mane, Fifth Harmony’s latest is all about them.

It’s hard to gage much from song titles, but the tone is generally strong and empowered. “He Like That,” “Sauced Up” and “Make You Mad” all sound like fierce bangers. It will be interesting to see if “Messy” is about ex-member Camila Cabello (I love a good diss track), while album closer “Bridges” could be about healing and moving on. We’ll know soon enough. The album drops on August 25. Before that, Fifth Harmony will perform at the MTV VMAs and possibly drop a new single/buzz track. Check out the full tracklist below.

Rihanna Semi-Apologizes For Saying Diplo’s Music “Sounds Like A Reggae Song At An Airport”

0

In a new interview with GQ, Diplo details his unsuccessful quest to collaborate with Rihanna. “I played her ‘Lean On.’ She was like, I don’t do house music. I face-palmed so hard on that one,” he begins. “Another time I had a session with her, and Future was also invited. The Weeknd was there. Metro Boomin was there before anybody knew who he was. I was so contact high. Future played her, like, 700 songs. It was four in the morning. Finally, I was like, ‘Yo, G, I’m leaving unless you let me play her a song.’ So I played her a song. And she was like, ‘This sounds like a reggae song at an airport.’ [laughs] I was like, I’m gonna go kill myself.” And now Rihanna has taken to Instagram to semi-apologize for her epic shade, posting a screencap of an article about the incident with the caption “#DutyFree 😂😂😂 My bad @diplo.” Never change, Rih.

0

On your mark, ready, set, let’s go! Will Smith and James Corden are taking to the road in the new Carpool Karaoke series for Apple Music.

The pair started things off by jamming out to “Getting Jiggy With It,” before Corden interrupted Smith in the middle of his pig Latin verse.

“It feels like it’s such a big tune. I feel like we need more. I’ve actually been working on this new surround sound system,” Corden insisted.

The British late night host then brought out a full marching band to perform with Smith as the pair of funnyman climbed out of the car’s sunroof to continue singing the song.

Corden also asked Smith about his start as a rapper.

“I wrote my first rhyme when I was 12,” Smith said. “It never got released. The first one that got released, I was 16, ‘Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble.’ I had a record on the radio for the last 30 days as a senior. You cannot beat your friends in high school knowing you have a hit record on the radio.”

And while Corden and Smith had fun spitting lyrics “Big Willie Style,” they weren’t the only celebs involved in the new spin-off series.

The extended trailer also showed Game of Thrones stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner belting out Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, and will.i.am rocking to “It Takes Two,” Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane embracing their inner Broadway stars singing “Suddenly Seymour” from Little Shop of Horrors.

Kendall Jenner Sneaks Out Of L.A. Nightclub With Blake Griffin: Where’s A$AP Rocky?

0

It was a fun night out for Kendall Jenner on Aug. 8, but why was she photographed leaving the club alone?! While basketball star, Blake Griffin, was not far behind, Kendall’s guy, A$AP Rocky, was nowhere in sight!

Kendall Jenner, 21, was spotted at Avenue Nightclub in L.A. on Aug. 8, but when cameras caught her exiting the venue, she was flying solo. However, there was another famous face just a few paces behind her — Blake Griffin, 28, was also partying inside! It’s unclear if the pair were hanging out together or if they got in the same vehicle after walking outside, but the timing is pretty interesting. However, Blake has a longtime girlfriend in Brynn Cameon(they even have two kids together), and there’s no evidence that there’s anything — even a friendship — between the basketball star and supermodel. Earlier in the night, Kendall attended Kendrick Lamar’s L.A. concert with her mom, Kris Jenner, 61, and sister, Kylie Jenner, 19, whose boyfriend, Travis Scott, 25, was also performing.

For the night out, Kendall rocked a sexy little black dress, which she paired with knee-high boots and an oversized white jacket. There’s no sign of her rumored boyfriend, A$AP Rocky, however, just last week, the pair attended a different concert in New York City together. Although they’ve been spotted out and about many times in the last several months, Kendall and the rapper have yet to officially confirm their relationship. However, reports say they’ve gotten more serious this year, and it looks like Kendall may almost be ready to start getting serious with the 28-year-old.

Kendall has been clear in the past that she wants to keep her personal life private, and has consistently insisted that she’s single in interviews — so don’t expect her to publicly start talking about this relationship! However, there’s no mistaking the fact that these two definitely enjoy one another’s company!

The Weeknd wants Obama and the pope to wear his sneaker line

0

The Weeknd has big dreams for the new sneaker he designed with Puma.

The “Starboy” crooner is set to release a high-top called the Parallel on Aug. 24 and hopes his design becomes part of the fashion zeitgeist.

“To be honest, I just want to see everyone wearing it. I want it to be part of pop culture,” the 27-year-old told Footwear News. “I want to walk down the street and see kids wearing it and women wearing it. I want to see the pope wearing it. I want to see [Barack] Obama wearing it. I want to see Elon Musk wearing it.”

The Weeknd is the latest celebrity to join the Puma ambassador team, which is led by creative director Rihanna. His designs include sneakers as well as clothing.

Given the Parallel’s steep price tag — the classic white design rings up at a cool $220 — it’s no wonder that The Weeknd names A-listers for his dream footwear customers.

Liam Payne Plays With Puppies, Talks Future Of One Direction And Solo Music

0

One Direction may have gone on an indefinite hiatus after releasing 2015’s Made in the A.M., but that doesn’t mean the group will never get back together. Not if Liam Payne has his way at least. The “Strip That Down”crooner assured fans that he would like to work with his bandmates again during an interview with BuzzFeed. The budding solo star sat down with three puppies up for adoption at North Shore Animal League and answered questions in what may be one of the year’s most adorable moments.

“I think we will be reunited at some point in the future,” he said about the band. “We have to. I mean, we have an album that we haven’t even toured yet, and I want to write some more songs with the boys.” Liam expressed appreciation for the work that his bandmates have explored since going their own ways including Harry Style’s foray into acting in the Christopher Nolan-directed Dunkirk, which premiered last month. He also expressed a desire to work with Zayn Malik again in the future because they have a similar musical aesthetic.

While discussing his own forthcoming project the “Get Low” hitmaker revealed some insightful information about the process of recording as a solo artist and hinted at the sonic direction of his LP. “You have to look a lot inside yourself for inspiration,” he said of recording on his own as opposed to working with a group. That inspiration has driven the project in a variety of directions, and he promised that the LP would include a handful of ballads alongside more hip hop and dance driven tracks. When asked to describe the album in three words, he confidently proclaimed “my favorite songs.”

The confidence seems to be well founded. His debut single has charted in the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and shows promise of rising higher in the coming weeks. The album will also see him teaming up with high profile producers such as Pharrell WilliamsRyan Tedder and Zedd, all of who are more than capable of delivering another hit. Liam also discussed dream collaborators (Nicki Minaj, and she may or may not make it onto his album), favorite tattoos and favorite memories from touring with 1D. Check out the adorable interview up top!

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s Divorce Reportedly Off: Haven’t Pushed For Official Split in Months

0

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are allegedly getting back together, according to a new report. The exes are in the middle of a tough divorce, but friends allegedly think there’s still hope for their relationship!

Is this the return of Brangelina? Nearly one year after calling it quits, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have reportedly stalled their divorce proceedings, according to a new report. Their friends apparently have their doubts that a divorce will ever happen!  “The divorce is off,” a source told Us Weekly. “They haven’t done anything to move it forward in several months and no one thinks they are ever going to.”

Whoa! It’s been a tumultuous year for the entire Jolie-Pitt family, and this alleged development could change everything. After Angelina filed for divorce in September 2016, things were bad between her and Brad. The actor was accused of alleged abuse, and it was then revealed that he was struggling with alcohol problems. But as time went on, the exes started getting along better and better for the sake of their children.

Well that friendliness has allegedly led to something more! Their old feelings for each other apparently haven’t gone away. Their allegedly rekindled love is due in part to Brad’s commitment to getting healthier, according to the source. “She’s still so in love with him,” the source told Us Weekly. “Everyone thinks they are going to get back together. It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced that they’re calling it off and trying to work things out.”
