Zayn Malik Makes History as Debut Solo Single Enters Chart at #1

Looks like Zayn Malik's headed in the right direction with his solo career.  The former One Direction member has snagged a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with his first solo single, "Pillowtalk."

Kanye has been struggling with a title for a while now.  Even his wife, Kim Kardashian, recently posted a Twitter poll to see if…

Taylor Swift Perfume Sales on the Downslide

Turns out, smelling like Taylor Swift may not be all that appealing. According to Fortune, sales for Taylor’s fragrance line kinda stink.
