“I’m going to play you a song I wrote about a relationship I was in that the number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety, because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative,” Taylor Swift said to introduce an acoustic performance of Out Of The Woods. She posted the video to Twitter today to celebrate the first anniversary of her album 1989. It’s rumored that the song, hands down one of the best on the album, was written about her relationship with Harry Styles of One Direction. The video was taken at the Clive Davis Theater on September 30th as part of her Grammys Museum exhibit. Taylor’s voice sounds amazing during this performance, and she does a different take on the song, which was co-written by Jack Antonoff. Do you have the chills yet?
Finally, Adele is BACK! If you haven’t heard her new track from the upcoming album 25, which is out in late November, it’s about time you do. The song, a pop ballad which feels slightly more sugary than anything off 21, still shows off her amazing pipes, and is equally haunting. The UK pop star was recently interviewed for the first time in three years for I-D magazine’s latest issue, with a gorgeous photo spread to boot. In the interview she opened up about how much her life has changed since she had her son, and how the drama of her early twenties is long behind her. More »
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton singing “Hotline Bling” can only mean one thing: Jimmy Fallon has a new game that we all want to play! Last night on The Tonight Show, the coaches of The Voice — Gwen, Blake, Pharrell Williams, and Adam Levine made an appearance for a little game of Spin The Mic. However, it was Gwen and Blake’s duet that has everyone talking! The two have formed a flirtatious friendship while coaching this season of The Voice. Not only did they look totally smitten with one another, but their cover was pretty hilarious. While the No Doubt singer nailed the hook of Drake‘s smash with all the right hype, the only thing lyric Blake knew was “Bling…bling”. Their awesome performance starts around the 8:30 mark.
Singer-songwriter Ryan Adams loved Taylor Swift‘s 2014 album 1989 so much, he decided to do a cover album and announced his intentions in August. Swift was beside herself when she found out, tweeting, “is this true??????? I WILL PASS OUT.” Sure enough, last month Adams released the same titled album, his 15th studio album, with darker, moodier covers of songs like “Shake It Off” and “Welcome to New York.” Now, some critics are sort of scratching their heads on why the 40-year-old artist has such an admiration for Swift’s music, but he makes no apologies for being blown away by the 25-year-old. And you know what? Kudos to him for that. More »

It's a Disney dream...
Don’t you just love Disney reunions? Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas are officially going on tour together next summer, and it almost feels like a dream! Between Demi’s Confident album and Nick’s summer hits (I still have “Jealous” stuck in my head), this tour will be great. To think that these two became BFFs when they both starred in Camp Rock in 2008. Oh, how time has passed. Anyone else feeling nostalgic? More »

Ugh Beyonce just gets cooler everyday, she’s even nerdy cool! Last night was Ciara‘s 30th birthday party, and of course, it was a costume party because Halloween is around the corner. It looks like there was a bit of a superhero theme going, because Ciara went as Catwoman, her boyfriend Russell Wilson as Batman, and various other celebs like Kelly Rowland and Lily Collins went dressed up too. But how fierce did Beyonce look as Storm from X-Men? That white hair, those contacts, that cape ready to defy gravity–she really had it down. More »

Daniel Tosh just wants to look good for you, good for you, Selena Gomez! The star of Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 has recreated the singer’s “Good For You” music video, and it’s actually amazing. I dare you to watch this video and not laugh — it’s impossible. The original music video, which appears on Selena’s latest album Revival, features her rolling around on a couch and rocking nothing but a white T-shirt. So, the comedian took it upon himself to release a shot-for-shot remake. More »
The wait was SOOOOO worth it!
Say “Hello” to Adele‘s first video in three years! The singer announced she will be releasing her new album 25 this November, and above is the video for the album’s first single!!! And it’s everything you were hoping for and more. Seriously, I watched it over 10 times already — it’s that good. In the emotionally haunting video, Adele sings about a past love (played by Tristan Wilds, best known for his role on the The Wire) that she doesn’t appear to have had closure with. With lyrics like, “If after all these years you’d like to meet to go over everything / They say that time’s supposed to heal, yeah / But I ain’t done much healing,” you know you’re in for a good one.
