The singer has had to pull out of her DC and Pittsburgh dates this week.

Celine Dion has postponed two shows on her Courage World Tour this week, but unlike so many other artists calling off shows due to the spread of COVID-19, the singer told fans it was because of a more routine virus. «Due to the common cold, Celine Dion postpones Courage World tour dates in Washington, D.C. and Pittsburgh, Pa.,» the singer wrote in a Facebook message.

The affected shows were slated to take place on Wednesday (March 11) at Capital One Arena in D.C. and Friday (March 13) at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh. The gigs have been rescheduled for November.

«On Monday night, a day after completing a six-show run in the New York area, Celine began feeling the symptoms of a common cold,» read the statement. «The symptoms persisted into Tuesday, and her doctors instructed her to rest for the next 5-7 days. After testing her, the doctors concluded that her virus was not related to COVID-19.»

Dion apologized for disappointing her fans in Washington D.C. and Pittsburgh and said that performances are expected to resume on March 24 in Denver at the Pepsi Center.

Taylor Swift may not have set the big screen on fire in the box office dud Cats, but the singer almost had a role in the hit TV show Vampire Diaries. That’s according to Nina Dobrev, one of the stars of beloved supernatural teen drama that ended its run in 2017.

Appearing on E! News’ Pop of the Morning, to promote Run This Town — a drama about the headline-scorching tenure of late Toronto Mayor Rob Ford — Dobrev revealed that Swift would have joined the show’s star-studded cast if it wasn’t for a bad case of timing.

«I remember at the very beginning, we heard that Taylor Swift was a fan of the show,» Dobrev said.

«And then the producers tried to write a role for her. It didn’t work out, schedule-wise, obviously she wasn’t on the show, but that was a surprising one… I think she would have been great.» A spokesperson for Swift could not be reached for comment at press time about her almost-Vampire cameo.

Justin Timberlake dropped «Don’t Slack,» his latest collaboration with Anderson .Paak from the upcoming Trolls World Tour movie, on Tuesday (March 10).

On the motivational track, the two stars trade verses over a funky beat punctuated with tambourine, bongos and handclaps. «OK now don’t slack/ I need all my racks/ No, we don’t hold back/ Act like you know that,» they sing as the propulsive beat builds to the chorus.

Timberlake also opened up in a new interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s New Music Daily about where he’s at creatively and teased the possibility of more music coming down the pipeline later this year. «Honestly, I’m just in a zone where I just love, I’ve always loved collaborating…But I feel like for whatever reason — whether it’s being on tour, or again, because the vessel used to be the album — there was so much time in between when I would get to go in with people. And now, I could not put anything out for the rest of the year, I could also put eight records out before 2020 is over, I don’t know.”

The new song follows Timberlake’s other recent Trolls collab with SZA, the even funkier «The Other Side,» which serves as the soundtrack’s lead single.

Trolls World Tour is set to hit theaters nationwide April 20 with the superstar reprising his role as Branch, the good-hearted sidekick to Anna Kendrick’s Queen Poppy.
