  • ADAM LEVINE GOES SNAPCHAT FILTER CRAZY FOR MAROON 5'S 'WAIT' VIDEO

  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 01:00:00 EST

    Maroon 5’s Adam Levine has Snapchat to thank for the band’s new music video.

    The band’s new clip for "Wait" features the singer and The Voice coach performing the song through a seemingly endless variety of Snapchat filters in a range of locations.

    No filter is left unturned as Levine is seen with rabbit ears, rocking giant glasses, and sporting a dog face. The singer’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, also makes a brief cameo in the clip.

    "Wait" is the second single off of Maroon 5’s latest album, Red Pill Blues, following "What Lovers Do," which was released in August and features SZA. The band also recently announced the first leg of the tour for Red Pill Blues, which kicks off in May.



  • CAMILA CABELLO LIGHTS UP 'ELLEN' WITH HOT 'HAVANA' PERFORMANCE

  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 01:00:00 EST

    Camila Cabello lit up the set of The Ellen DeGeneres Show with a red-hot cabaret rendition of "Havana."

    Cabello’s steamy performance opened with the singer emerging from a dressing room after singing the opening lines of the song into a vanity mirror.

    Dancing through a backstage area through racks of wardrobe, the singer emerges onto a cabaret stage, eventually making her way down into a mock club setting.

    Cabello’s "Havana" followed an interview with Ellen, where she discussed what it was like performing in New York’s Times Square in frigid sub-zero temperatures on New Year’s Eve and the extreme measures she took to stay warm.

    "I’m from Miami, so that’s just not great," Cabello told DeGeneres, adding that there was a "negative one hundred degree wind chill" – to which DeGeneres jokingly shut down the singer saying, "you would’ve died." In order to avoid completely freezing, Cabello said she put hand warmers "everywhere," and she meant everywhere.

    Pointing towards the lower half of her body, Cabello said putting hand warmers "down there" helped a lot. As the audience laughed, DeGeneres joked, "so you felt the heat there and it made you think of Havana." Cabello further went on to proclaim her desire to use hand warmers during all future performances and joked that is would "be the new thing."

  • LOUIS TOMLINSON DONATES $10,000 TO HELP FAN WITH CEREBRAL PALSY

  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 01:00:00 EST

    When Louis Tomlinson found out that a nine-year-old One Direction fan suffering from cerebral palsy needed $10,000 for medical expenses, he happily donated the full amount.

    Tomlinson made the donation to the fundraising page for 1D fan Rylee Sanord, which was created by Rylee’s sister MaKayley Sanford who shared the news of the musician’s gesture,

    "This was the MOST pleasant thing to wake up to this morning," wrote MaKayley Tuesday when she saw Tomlinson’s donation. "Thank you for making my mom and I cry tears of happiness. You mean SO much to my family, and this is absolutely amazing. I honestly can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done."

    Following Tomlinson’s donation, MaKayley raised to target amount on the fundraising campaign to $15,000. AT press time it was sitting at $12,460.

    "We are forever grateful for the 1d members and fans," added Rylee’s mom Lisa. "We can never thank everyone enough for the donations and shares. All this is for Rylee…The journey to give this little girl the best life possible."

    In her YouCaring post, MacKayley wrote:

    "Rylee is nine years old and has bilateral close-lipped schizencephaly which ultimately causes her cerebral palsy," reads the page. "Schizencephaly is a very rare brain malformation which means her brain has two clefts on it. When she was born the doctors told us she would never smile or do anything. We were devastated but she has been proving those doctors wrong."

    In the post, Sanford also spoke about the musicians and music that brightens her sister’s day.

    "A little bit about Rylee is she loves music and animals. She can also be quite sassy but we love it. She loves Zayn, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Jojo Siwa, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt. She is a true warrior and always has a smile on her face….Thank you for any amount you are able to give."

According to TMZ, the singer’s company, TAS Rights Management, LLC, has filed documents to secure the rights to the phrase "Big Reputation." The phrase is a lyric from her song "End Game," where she sings, "Big reputation/big reputation/Ooh, you and me would be a big conversation." Apparently, Taylor is looking to use "Big Reputation" on merchandise items including sunglasses, cell phone cases, pajamas and gloves. She’s also reportedly trademarking her own signature, for usage on bathrobes, hair pins, dolls and toy glow sticks. Taylor previously trademarked a bunch of phrases from her 1989 album, including "This Sick Beat," "We Never Go Out of Style" and "I Could Show You Incredible Things."

Ariana’s competition in the category includes Rose McGowan, for speaking out against sexual harassment, as well a few British politicians and celebrities. The One Love benefit is nominated for Music Moment of the Year; it’s up against, among other things, Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show.

  • THE CHAINSMOKERS DROP NEW TRACK 'SICK BOY'

  • Thu, 18 Jan 2018 01:00:00 EST

    The Chainsmokers are back with a brand new track titled "Sick Boy." The duo take it to the stage for the music video, featuring a live performance of the dramatic new music.

    "Sick Boy" is the group’s first new music since their 2017 album Memories…Do Not Open.

    The track is a social commentary with lyrics that seem to describe the personas that we construct for ourselves via social media and movies. "Welcome to the narcissism/We’re united under our indifference," goes one lyric. There’s also a repeated refrain of, "This is us/This is us."

    The song’s video features Drew Taggart and his musical partner Alex Pall, plus a drummer, performing on a bare stage. At times, Drew appears to morph into some kind of monster, while Alex’s piano bursts into flames.

    According to their label, the track is "a song about self-identity in today’s world and standing tall in the face of what you can and can’t control." No word on whether or not this is a one-off single, or the first release from a new EP or album.

    The Chainsmokers are nominated at the upcoming Grammy Awards for "Something Just Like This," in the category of Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. They already have a Grammy for Best Dance Recording – they won it last year for "Don’t Let Me Down."
