    Charlie Puth isn’t letting physics tie him down. The 25-year-old singer has debuted the video for his latest single "How Long."

    In the video, Charlie croons his remorseful tune while defying gravity with some pretty crazy moves.

    "How Long" is the second single off his upcoming sophomore album VoiceNotes, set for release on January 19th.

    Meanwhile, Charlie recently confirmed he has a girlfriend, but wouldn’t give a name. He told Ellen DeGeneres, "I’m actually not single right now. I’m in a relationship, but I’m kind of done with dating people in the public."

    Although Puth tried his best to be sneaky, fans think they figured out who his new bae is – The Originals star Danielle Campbell.

    Charlie and Danielle first interacted on social media at the beginning of the month when the crooner commented on one of the actress’ Instagram pictures.

    Charlie also recently posted a screenshot of a missed FaceTime call with the contact name (mostly) removed. But fans need very little information to do their detective work and they quickly realized that Campbell was most likely the person he tried to call. Charlie later deleted the post, seemingly because people blew up his page.

    In a new interview, Ed Sheeran opened up about the accident that caused him to postpone upcoming tour dates. For a new episode of The Jonathan Ross Show airing Saturday, Sheeran detailed his recent bike accident.

    "I broke my wrist, my elbow and my rib. I came off a bike quite fast, a bicycle, a pedal bike. I was in Suffolk going down a really steep hill. The thing is, when it happened, I got up and was like, ‘That hurt’ and then cycled to the pub. Went home, went to sleep and then woke up at five o’clock in the morning in a lot of pain," he said on the U.K. talk show. "And then went to the hospital."

    Upon seeking medical attention, Sheeran was persuaded to postpone upcoming shows in Asia after learning the injuries could prevent him from playing guitar in the future if he continued before recovering; he is expected to take four weeks off to recuperate.

    On whether he is accident prone, Ed said, "I’m quite a clumsy guy anyway… It’s come more since I’ve found success. I remember before a show in 2013 I had to have 12 stitches in my hand because I was playing drums with two beer bottles at about four o’clock in the morning and smashed my hand. Then I put my foot in a boiling geyser in Iceland, I had my face cut open, I’m a very clumsy person."

    Meanwhile, Sheeran turned up at the Q Awards in London Wednesday night with his right arm in a cast and his left in a sling. He was named the Best Act In The World Today.

    Kesha doesn’t have to share a #MeToo post. She has been open for years about her own accounts of sexual abuse in her career.

    But she did take a moment to show her solidarity for her fellow women who are coming out with their own stories of Harvey Weinstein and those like him. In a couple of inspirational tweets, Kesha wrote:

    "I support the tremendous amount of women who are coming forward to tell their stories of harassment and abuse."

    In a second tweet, she wrote, "It takes strength and courage. Bravo! May the universe lighten the burden from your soul."

    Kesha has been embroiled in a long public battle with producer Dr. Luke, who she has accused of sexual assault and battery, gender violence, emotional abuse and more.

    Alyssa Milano has been credited with spurring the current internet phenomenon of the #MeToo movement when she asked survivors to share their stories in the wake of the revelations about Harvey Weinstein.

    Meanwhile, Kesha has shared "25 Things You Don’t Know About Me" with Us Weekly. Here they are:

    1. The only thing I know how to cook is popcorn. If I was alone on an island, I would live on popcorn, assuming I had a microwave.

    2. I was born with a tail. That’s not a joke. A teeny tail.

    3. I sewed and designed a lot of my own clothes growing up and paid hell for it.

    4. I helped orchestrate an elaborate proposal for my cousin at Grand Canyon.

    5. I sat in on Cold War history classes at Belmont University for fun, then studied comparative religion at Columbia University the summer before my senior year.

    6. I like doing sh*t that scares me and I really love swimming with sharks. They’re adorable.

    7. I won an art competition when I was 4 for a beautiful rendering of a city cat.

    8 I wrote the song "Stephen" about a boy I was obsessed with in high school. Now we’re friends and think it’s hilarious … at least I do.

    9. I tried to photocopy my butt at school. I ended up with, like, 100,000 copies.

    10. I am the first ambassador for Humane Society International. Animals are my Zen place, my happiness.

    11. During a middle school talent show, a competitor and mean girl pulled my microphone out of the amplified during "Hallelujah." I’ve never totally gotten over that.

    12. I was obsessed with Will Smith! I had five copies of Big Willie Style.

    13. I have four different tattoos of whales on my body.

    14. I’ve traveled extensively in Latin America. I speak Spanish pretty well – I still can’t dance salsa though.

    15. My mom had a record deal in the ‘80s. The album never came out, but the songs are amazing!

    16. I’m an advanced Scuba diver with enough training to be an instructor.

    17. Bob Dylan has given me two hugs. I win!

    18. Ben Folds lent me a sparkly grand piano after meeting me once. Now we’re BFFs.

    19. My mom has seven dogs and one bird. They are all rescues, including the bird, who I found on a highway with a broken wing when I was 17.

    20. I have recorded with both members of the Black Keys on unreleased tracks.

    21. I ran for student council president in high school. My campaign video was set to The Who’s "Baba O’Riley."

    22. I have had many interactions with the supernatural including seeing multiple UFOs in Joshua Tree.

    23. I once took a Greyhound bus from Nashville to Milwaukee and back to see the Darkness in concert.

    24. I hitchhiked through Central America. My brother promised me it was safe but looking back, I’m not so sure. Maybe we just got lucky.

    25. A lot of my family is from Hungary (Kesha is a family name), and when I turned there I visited with some. Budapest was my biggest show. It was people to the horizon.

    The New York Post has reported that Nicki Minaj will be a witness in her brother, Jelani Maraj's, upcoming rape case. In opening statements in Nassau County Court, Maraj's lawyer said that the case is an attempt to extort $25 million from Nicki. Maraj's lawyer said that the victim's mother, Jacqueline Robinson, related to Nicki saying "I can make the charges go away for $25 million." Robinson and Maraj had just married when the then-11-year-old daughter told officials that her stepfather was raping her as often as four times a week.

    During the Assistant District Attorney's opening statement, she told the jurors that the girl's brother -- who was 8-years-old at the time, alerted child services of the abuse. The prosecutor also said that the boy claimed he was beaten by Maraj after walking in on him having sex with his sister in a spare bedroom. Child services then alerted the police, who obtained a search warrant to the house and discovered a pair of the girl's pajama pants with the stepdad's DNA on it.

    • Maraj's attorney, however, says that the mother put the DNA on the pants herself. The lawyer said, "Jackie became obsessed with Nicki Minaj — getting her hands on her money. An evil Jackie targeted him trying to get him to marry her, and then just four months after they were married, we have this."
    • It is unclear whether or not Nicki will take the stand, but a private investigator says that she will be called on her brother's behalf.
