    Camila Cabello just got her first tattoo.

    The fresh ink, done by Los Angeles artist Kane Navasard, is on the inside of her pinky finger and reads, "it's a mystery." In an Instagram post, Camila noted that the tattoo, which is a quote from her favorite film, Shakespeare in Love, is an honor to her mother, Sinuhe Estrabao.

    "Never thought I'd get a tattoo before but I asked my mom to write to me a promise she'd want me to make to her that she thought i would need for the rest of my life, long story short, it's a pinky swear to her to remember, no matter what happens, everything is gonna turn out well. There's no telling how, but it always does ❤️," Camila wrote.

    Camila's boyfriend Shawn Mendes joined her at the tattoo studio and added to his ever-growing collection. Mendes opted for a different tattoo, adding a small "A" behind his right ear as a tribute to his 16-year-old sister, Aaliyah Mendes.

    Meanwhile, Camila has released a new song called "Living Proof" from her upcoming album Romance.

    "THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVE SONGS I WROTE FOR THE ALBUM," Camila wrote on Instagram, quoting a line from the song's chorus: "There's God in every move.... and you're the living proof."

    Camila also sings, "Like a choir singing ‘Hallelujah'/When my body's crashin' right into you...Where did you come from, baby?/And were you sent to save me?"

    Romance is available for pre-order now; it's out on December 6th.

    Harry Styles sang and performed in comedy sketches as the guest host of this weekend's edition of Saturday Night Live.

    Styles hilariously played the human incarnation of a lonely woman's boyfriend/dog Doug in a pre-recorded video. Just before he is transforms back into a Chihuahua, he tells the woman (played by Aidy Bryant): "Joan, I love you! Love the way you feed me ham. You're my life, my love, my everything, I love you just the way you am." He is seen wearing a dog collar, eating trash out of a bathroom garbage can and cowering at the sight of the vacuum cleaner.

    In another sketch, Styles and SNL cast member Chris Redd play inappropriate disc jockeys who alternately shock and delight mourners at an elderly woman's funeral.

    In yet another sketch, Styles and Bowen Yang teamed up to destroy Sara Lee's social media brand, with Styles as a hapless employee turning its Instagram into meditations on lonely threesomes and Yang's supervisor uploading a photo of himself at a harness party to the account.

    Sara Lee's real Instagram was soon been flooded with some of the fictional captions Styles' lovelorn social media coordinator "posted," which included gems like "Feeling really depressed after threesome. What was supposed to be a fantasy ended up more rejection. Must get rid of toxic in community," and posting "WRECK ME DADDY" and a bunch of eggplant emojis ramming a ghost on Nick Jonas's account.

    Sara Lee's social media accounts were so inundated with comments they ended up turning them off on Instagram altogether. As of Sunday night, the comments were back on and the bit was ongoing.

    Bimbo Bakeries USA, which owns Sara Lee, put out a statement addressing the sketch, noting that the brand didn't pay for it and doesn't exactly condone it. "We didn't participate in creating the skit and its content doesn't align with Sara Lee Bread's brand," they said in a statement. "But, we all know SNL pushes the envelope for laughs and we are taking it in stride."

    During his opening monologue, Harry gave his former One Direction bandmates a shout-out, but seemingly couldn't remember all of the guys he used to sing with. "I love those guys. They're my brothers," Harry said. "Niall, Liam, Louis -" Harry then trailed off jokingly forgetting the last member, Zayn Malik. "And um, Ringo, yeah that's it," Harry joked. "Just so grateful Simon Cowell grew us in those test tubes."

    Throughout the show, Styles also took the stage to perform his songs "Watermelon Sugar" and "Lights Up."

    Styles released his new song "Watermelon Sugar" just moments before starting his hosting duties on SNL.

    "Watermelon Sugar" is the second single off of Harry's upcoming sophomore album Fine Line, due out December 13th. Harry released the first single "Lights Up" back in October.

    Harry also recently announced his upcoming tour Love on Tour.

    Kanye West appeared at Joel Osteen's church in Houton, Texas yesterday (November 17th). During his visit, Ye said, "I know that God's been calling me for a long time and the devil's been distracting me for a long time. When I was at my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me."

    Ye revealed that after being hospitalized for a mental breakdown in 2016, he decided to start a church in Calabasas. He explained, "Even after that, I went and made the Life of Pablo album. I said, ‘This is a gospel album.' And I didn't know how to totally make a gospel album and the Christians that were around were too beaten into submission by society to not speak up and profess the gospel to me because I was a superstar. But the only superstar is Jesus."


    In clip one, Kanye says Jesus has won the victory in his life:

    "The devil stole all the good producers, all the good muscians, all the good artists, all the good designers and said 'you gotta come over and work for me' and now the shift is going to change. Jesus has won the victory."

    In clip two, Kanye says he is the greatest artist God ever created and spoke on how the media manipulates children:

    "The greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for Him. I would like for everybody to be completely silent so I can let God flow through me as I speak to you today. Protecting your kids formthe endoctrination of the media. The thousands of images that are fed to children by the age of 7. And within those images there are images mixed in that we don't know about that are purposely mixed in to lower the kids super power and esteem so that they can be more susceptible to consumption and feel that they need to consume and become a part of the robotic and numeric system that controls so much of the media."

    In clip three, Kanye says the strip club that is advertising sex is advertising sex trafficking:

    "If there's an advertisement for a strip club that is advertising sex trafficking because at the end of the night the manager asks, how much traffic did we have? So, if its a man that's going through things with his family . . . we all end up participating whether its the spirits that gets advertised to us all the time."

    In clip four, Kanye says a prayer:

    "Lord, Christ, Father God, thank you for this moment. . . . in the Christian community."

    Selena Gomez has vowed to fight gun violence forever after the latest mass shooting at a Los Angeles area campus left two teenagers dead.

    A 16-year-old gunman killed two students and left three other teens injured before turning the pistol on himself at Saugus High School in Santa Clarita, California, last Thursday. Selena is urging fans not to turn a blind eye to the incident.

    "I know people speak on this a lot because of how often it happens," she wrote on Instagram above a screenshot of an article from the Los Angeles Times about the shooting. "Please don't get numb to it. I'm not sure if I can do anything but I will never stop trying."

    Later, the singer shared another message of support online to those who suffered during the violent attack.

    "Now please pay attention to what's going on around YOU," Selena implored. "Lord I pray for protection over those affected by this heartbreaking, painful, unfair choice of someone who was severely troubled. I pray for peace that surpasses all understanding. If there's anything I can do to help I will."

    The shooting left two students, a 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy, dead, and three other teens injured. The shooter, identified as 16-year-old Nathaniel Berhow, shot himself in the head after opening fire over a 16-second period on the school's quad area. He is reportedly at a local hospital in grave condition.

    Noah Cyrus stopped her performance on Saturday due to illness.

    After getting off stage, the 19-year-old shared a photo of herself wearing an oxygen mask being treated by EMTs at the Corona Capital music festival in Mexico City.

    "I had to run off and throw up before my last song," she wrote on Instagram. "Sorry I couldn't finish my set but thanks so much @coronacapital. You guys were so loud..... #f--kyounoah ammmiiiriiiteeee".

    Among fans well wishes was Justin Bieber. "Hope ur okay. Check ur dm," he replied to her Instagram post.

    Noah shared the photo Bieber messaged her of the two when they were younger. "Ope suddenly I'm better thanks king," Cyrus wrote over the screenshot of his direct message.

    Cyrus poked fun at her sudden sickness by sharing a photo taken during her performance and adding, "before she yacked," with three throwing up emojis.

    The singer seems to have recovered, later sharing a photo of her and her team riding in a car. Cyrus does not have any other upcoming tour dates.

    Noah's health scare comes just days after her older sister Miley underwent vocal cord surgery. Miley's latest procedure was unrelated to the tonsil surgery that she had to undergo last month after suffering from tonsillitis. She will reportedly have to remain silent for weeks while she recovers. She's also gone silent on social media; Miley hasn't posted anything on her Instagram account since she came home from the hospital last weekend.

    Scooter Braun is reportedly unhappy with the way things are going with Taylor Swift's music. The music producer is "frustrated" with how Big Machine Label's Scott Borchetta is handling Swift and her music catalog.

    "Scooter is frustrated because his name is being dragged in the mud," a source told E! News. "He doesn't run Big Machine or have operational control of company. He hasn't taken part in these negotiations…This fight with Taylor is not something Scooter agrees with."

    Last week, Taylor shared that she was hoping to perform a medley of her hits at the upcoming 2019 American Music Awards, but claimed that Scooter and Scott are banning her from performing her music.

    Big Machine Label then released a statement, discrediting Taylor's claims, which her rep later slammed. The insider said Scooter has been trying to reach Taylor, but she hasn't returned his calls. Scooter's Nashville office was shut Friday following threats allegedly sparked by Swift's claims. Braun's company, Ithaca Holdings, was deluged with calls after Taylor asked her fans, "Please let Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun know how you feel about this."

    Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Elizabeth Warren are defending Swift.

    Representative Ocasio-Cortez spoke out on Twitter Friday regarding Swift's situation. "Private equity groups' predatory practices actively hurt millions of Americans," she tweeted. "Their leveraged buyouts have destroyed the lives of retail workers across the country, scrapping 1+ million jobs. Now they're holding @taylorswift13's own music hostage. They need to be reigned in."

    Presidential candidate Warren joined in on Saturday, tweeting that Swift is "one of many whose work has been threatened by a private equity firm," connecting it to her presidential campaign. "They're gobbling up more and more of our economy, costing jobs and crushing entire industries," Warren wrote. "It's time to rein in private equity firms – and I've got a plan for that." The last line of Warrens' tweet is her unofficial campaign slogan, reflecting her many policy positions.

    LIZZO SUED FOR DEFAMATION BY POSTMATES DRIVER: Lizzo is being sued for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress by a former Postmates driver after she accused her of stealing her food. The driver, Tiffany Wells, claims that she is concerned for her safety and no longer works for Postmates due to the incident. The suit claims Wells delivered a Postmates order from a Massachusetts lobster restaurant to the Revere Hotel in Boston in September. Wells says after arriving at the hotel, she attempted to contact Lizzo several times and, after not receiving a response, she left. An outraged Lizzo tweeted Wells's name and Postmates photo, claiming, "Hey @Postmates this girl Tiffany W. stole my food she lucky I don't fight no more." Lizzo later apologized writing, "I apologize for putting that girl on blast. I understand I have a large following and that there were so many variables that could've put her in danger. I'm a really be more responsible with my use of social media and check my petty and my pride at the door."
