Richard and Rebecca everyone!”  The actress, who was also stranded in Orlando, shared cheerful posts on social media of the shelter, singing “You Are My Sunshine” with seniors, &amp; even referred to an older gentleman as her “side piece here in Orlando” &amp; apologized to husband, Dax Shepard.

Why Katy Perry Ended Her Feud With Calvin Harris

Katy Perry &amp; Calvin Harris have all the friend “Feels” these days.  In 2011 the two got involved in a Twitter feud after he canceled plans on opening up for Katy on tour last minute.  Thank the Lord they reconciled because then we wouldn’t have their new collaboration song, “Feels” right?  “I saw Calvin actually at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. We just bumped into each other and he’s like, ‘Oh, you know, it’s so funny, I think I have a song that maybe you should come check out,'” Perry said in an interview on Wednesday.  “I was like, ‘Cool,’ because we’d always meant to work together for years and years and years.” “We’d had little falling outs here and there,” she added. “We’d had some public Twitter spats and it was like, eight years or so had passed. It was time to put all that behind us. Then he played me this one part for this new song called ‘Feels’ and I was like, ‘Oh yeah.’ This is like my favorite song off the record. I was just down to do it.” Many people think Calvin &amp; Katy collaborated on the track to get back at Katy’s nemesis &amp; Calvin’s ex, Taylor Swift.  Another fan theory- Katy released “Swish Swish” as a clap back to Taylor’s Bad Blood.  Perry said on  The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in May that “Swish Swish” represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you” and said on the  Today show in June that the song is “not about anyone in particular.” She then extended an olive branch to Swift, saying, “All I need to say to her is I love her and God bless her on her journey.” Katy will be hosting the MTV VMA’s this Sunday.  “I don’t really know what to expect because there’s a lot of spontaneity on that show, so I’m just gonna have to like, catch every curve ball that comes at me and laugh,” Perry said. “I’m basically just gonna laugh the whole way through.”

Justin Bieber To Go On A 2 Week Retreat in India

Justin Bieber is staying strong with this whole “resetting” his lifestyle thing.  His newest thing- A two week yoga retreat in India.  “Justin wants some peace &amp; quiet. On this yoga retreat you aren’t even allowed to have your cellphone on.” “He’s fairly new to  yoga &amp; has only been to a few classes but he’s become really passionate about it because it helps him relax, focus, &amp; escape the stress of everyday life” an insider explains.  Bieber made a decision to cancel the remaining 14 dates of his Purpose World Tour due to stress, saying he was looking forward to “getting some relaxation.” A source close to Justin said that “Justin is adamant about leading a normal life. One of the good things about going on a silent yoga retreat is that he won’t have any screaming fans to contend with.”

Floyd Mayweather Upset With Justin Bieber After Being Unfollowed on Instagram

bieberRemember that time Justin Bieber &amp; Floyd Mayweather were friends? That’s apparently over &amp; done with.  The 2 men would often be seen together, &amp; Justin even accompanied Floyd to the ring for several fights.  As a matter of fact, Mayweather and Bieber aren’t even on speaking terms, according to sources close to both parties.  Justin has been getting counseling at the Hillsong Church who advised the pop star to part ways with all the bad influences in his life.  As a result, he unfollowed the fighter on Instagram as part of his “resetting boundaries” that included keeping away from Mayweather’s obsession with strip clubs.   But once Bieber unfollowed Mayweather, the man who will face Conor McGregor on Aug. 26 went “insane, nuclear.” Sources stated that Mayweather called Bieber a “traitor” because Mayweather had always been by Bieber’s side, even when he faced backlash from the media and fans.

Taylor Swift Shares A Mysterious Video

taylor_swift_103_18118974610Taylor Swift- What are you doing to us?!  After tearing everything down on all her social media accounts last week, Taylor returned to the digital world &amp; left millions of followers in a state of confusion. Sharing a 10 second video of a reptiles tail recoiling- no words, no  text, no music, NOTHING.  Swift’s last album, 1989, was released in 2014 &amp; won her 2 Grammys.  This past Friday, following the end of a courtroom battle, Swift deleted everything on her social media, causing fans to start speculating a new album is on it’s way.  Music video director, Joseph Kahn, retweeted Swift’s video with a smiley face. He directed her “Bad Blood”, “Blank Space”, “Out of the Woods”, &amp; “Wildest Dreams” videos for Taylor.  Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta said last month that we “can absolutely expect more Taylor Swift music. But you know what? One of the things we always do with Taylor is she is the broadcaster. When she is ready to tell her fans when she’s coming back, she will do it.”  “We have a rule and a saying at the label: The first rule of the Taylor Club is don’t talk about Taylor Club.” Swift has been working on new material in Nashville “around the clock,” a source said. “She is really excited about her new music and can’t wait to share it with her fans.”

Derek Jeter Is Finally A Dad!

Congrats are in order for Derek Jeter &amp; his wife Hannah, who welcomed their first child together!  The  Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model gave birth to a baby girl named Bella Raine Jeter on August 17, according to an announcement from  The Players’ Tribune, the website the baseball player founded. The first-time parents announced they were expecting back in February.  “Now, pregnant with our first child, Derek and I are looking to the future,” Hannah wrote on The Players’ Tribune.   “He already has a name in mind—he’s set on it. (We’ll see.) He’ll say when he calls me during the day: ‘So, how are you and so-and-so doing?’ ‘That’s not the name yet, sweetie.’ Whatever her name is, I know she’ll run circles around him.” “Derek and I will want our children to understand that the lives they’ve been given are so fortunate, in so many ways. We’ll want them to learn to help others, and to care for others, and to give back to the world. We’ll let them know that they are strong and smart, and that they can do anything they put their minds to. I hope they’ll be honest like their father. I hope they’ll be stubborn like me. I hope that they know what they want and won’t settle for less,” she wrote.  “And if they want to play baseball, well, we’re gonna have a little talk first.”  What kind of parents will they be?  “I think I’ll be strict because my parents were relatively strict with me,” she’s said in the past. “You just want them to get through high school and get them on the right path.”  Bella came into the world shortly after the couples first wedding anniversary, which was in July.  “I look forward to having a family. I just don’t think personally I would have been able to juggle family and my career at the same time…I have the utmost respect for these guys that are able to do it—you know, missing their kids’ birthdays and not being able to see them play tee ball or summer ball and missing a lot of time,” Jeter has said in the past.  “So, it’s another reason why I feel as though now’s the time. I mean, I want to have a family. Who knows when it’s gonna be? But I look forward to it.”

Congrats to the brand new parents! Congratulations Derek and @hannahbjeter on the birth of your baby girl, Bella Raine Jeter, born Thursday, Aug. 17. — The Players' Tribune (@PlayersTribune) August 18, 2017

 

Who Is Justin Bieber’s “Friends” About?

  bieberJustin Bieber is infamous for putting cryptic messages in his songs, or at least we think so.  Despite cancelling his tour, Justin has released a new single- “Friends”, &amp; we can’t help but wonder who he’s talking about!  “Can we still be friends?” Bieber asks on his latest track to an ex who he swears he’s over but doesn’t want to quit completely. Considering the tumultuous past between he &amp; Selena Gomez, we always just assume it’s about her- &amp; it’s really hard not to! THey broke up in 2014 after being on &amp; off for 3 years &amp; Selena has made it crystal clear that she’s moved on, which is natural considering they dated when they were like 16, but she also revealed to Vogue Australia that she can’t completely get rid of him.  “For a while my private life was the most talked about thing,” Gomez said.”Nobody really knows everything and they can only assume. You want to do what you love but all this other stuff overshadows it so it makes it a little harder for people to take me seriously.” Anyway… Whoever this “Friends” song is about- Bieber clearly isn’t over yet.  “Girl, you wonderin’ why I’ve been callin’?/Like I’ve got ulterior motives,” he sings. “No, we didn’t end this so good/But you know we had something so good.”  It’s cleat he’s trying to get this chick back! Now, Bieber never mentions anyone by name, leaving us in limbo. For all we know, it could be Sofia Richie! The track that’s co- written by Julia Michaels &amp; Justin Tranter also mentions his ex’s mom- &amp; we know how close Selena is to her mama! “I was wonderin’ ’bout your mama. Did she get that job she wanted? So that car that gave her problems I’m just curious ’bout her, honest.” Bieber’s mom is a fan of Selena’s, tweeting her in the past to send her some b-day love. And we can’t forget Justin’s #TBT on social media of his &amp; Selena captioning it with 1 word- “Perfect.” He admitted to Access Hollywood last year that most of his Purpose album was about Selena, calling her his “first love.”  “It was really tough. I don’t know if I’m over it yet,” Bieber said then. “I think that I’m definitely in another place and I think we’ve definitely went our separate ways. I love her and I want her to be awesome, but there are things that remind me of her.” Either way- Justin will most likely never admit who the song is about, so we’ll just have to make our own judgement.

Zayn Malik Reveals What He Would Be Doing If He Wasn’t A Famous Singer

Zayn Malik was blessed with talent, fame, &amp; fortune- but that wasn’t necessarily his goal.  The “Still Got Time” singer is gracing the cover of VMAN 38 &amp; admitted that he’s been curious about what his life would be like if One Direction never existed.  “I think about alternative realities. I think I’d be at university and I would have done my English degree. I think I’d be looking for some employment to do with English lecturing or literature,” Malik says. “I love poetry and writing—obviously, I’m a songwriter—so, it would’ve been something that would still give me the feeling of a creative outlet within my writing.”  Malik quit 1D in 2015 &amp; released his debut album a year later.  He’s putting the finishing touches on his second album &amp; has been refelcting on his decison to go solo.    “I don’t think it was necessarily that experience that made me a man. I was becoming a man at that time anyway, and that experience was a validation of my decision-making at that time. Maybe I became a bit more in the driver’s seat—a bit more in control—and that was the first decision I made that reflected that in my life. I think it was a natural growth as a human being and as a person. I’m still growing every day, as everybody is,” the “Pillowtalk” singer says. “I don’t know everything and I’m willing to learn, so I believe everything is a natural progression.”  Malik is still figuring out who he is &amp; what he wants his message through his music to be &amp; says that he finds it’s best to do that with out listening to outside influences.  “For me personally, I don’t ever try to dwell so deep on labels and boxes and places that people want to put you. I believe that we as individuals are in charge of the way people perceive us. There are negative and positive sides to every human on this planet. That’s just the way it is,” the pop star says. “You just have to accept that. If I were to overthink that, it would affect me.”

Backstreet Boys “The Call” 20 Years Later

Festival d'ete de Quebec - Day 4I’m not sure if this ruins my favorite BSB song, or makes it even better.  Backstreet Boys sat down with Billboard to chat about the 20th anniversary of their debut album Backstreet Boys, &amp; each member shared some memories.  Although the focus was supposed to be on their debut album, AJ McLean couldn’t help but telling a story from Black &amp; Blue, “The Call.”   “You know what, there is one that I’m probably going to get in trouble for,” McLean acknowledged before getting into the crux of the story, which involves super-producer Max Martin (who mixed the song). “So when we were in the studio with Max making the song “The Call,” Howie  was in the booth and we were doing that vocal break down, [ sings] ‘ dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun.’ Max gave Howie his harmony, and I think he was just putting so much air into the vocal that as he was singing, he went ‘dun, dun’ and he farted — but he farted not only on the beat, but in key. So Max tweaked it and made it sound like one of his patented bass sounds, and it stayed on the record.” “Howie’s fart became an instrument and is on the record for the rest of our lives.” And after telling the full story, McLean gave Martin some credit for his masterful mixing: “[Max] could turn a fart into a bass sound, that’s pretty damn genius if you ask me.”   Billboard couldn’t let this go with out some clarification, ” I plead the fifth to say anything,” Dorough initially says, laughing, before deciding to back himself up.  “I’m sure there were a lot of beverages consumed back in the day. It’s one of those kind of things… Everybody at that age — especially Nick — was constantly passing gas, just being young 20-year-old guys doing guy locker room kind of stuff. And coincidentally, I got in the booth, was breathing in really heavily singing my part, and I guess some extra air kind of came out. It made everybody laugh, and Max decided to take that and sample it to turn it into the ‘ dun dun dun, dun dun dun dun.'”  Max was onto something because Howie’s fart is the most intense part of the entire song! “If it was me, the guys can definitely thank me for that,” Dorough laughs, “and thank what was consumed the night before singing those songs.”  Well… That has definitely changed the entire song for me!
