Zayn Malik's Fiancee Not Banning One Direction from Wedding

Despite rumors to the contrary, Gossip Cop reports that Zayn Malik’s former One Direction band mates will not be banned from his wedding.

If you’ll recall, Zayn was photographed getting close with a mystery woman while the band was on tour in Thailand. The tabloid claimed Perrie “feels humiliated by what happened and she is looking for someone to blame.” But Gossip Cop, a site that busts bad scoops, quickly debunked the…

Rihanna Spills on Creating "Soulful and Aggressive" New Album

Rihanna is spilling new details about her upcoming album, tentatively titled R8. "[The album is] soulful and aggressive, whether it's lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice," she says in the latest issue of V magazine.

Shawn Mendes Debuts at #1 on "Billboard" Album Chart

He's only 16, but Vine star Shawn Mendes is now the proud owner of a #1 album on the Billboard chart.  The singer's debut album, Handwritten, has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, with first-week sales of 119,000 units, according to Nielsen Music.  He's the youngest artist to have a #1 on the chart since 2010, when Justin Bieber was on top with My World 2.0.  At the time, Justin was six months younger than Shawn is now.  Shawn's chart success isn't entirely surprising, since his self-titled EP debuted at #5 last year.  However, unlike most artists…

Burger Chain Posts, then Deletes, Nasty Tweet About Madonna

During her recent promotional blitz for her new album Rebel Heart, Madonna has spoken a lot about ageism and her frustration with it.  So it's no wonder fans are up in arms about what Umami Burger, a fast food chain, said about her in a very nasty tweet. The tweet's since been deleted, reports Billboard, but of course, a screenshot's been captured.  The burger chain apparently shared a photo of a poster from its Costa Mesa, California location.  The caption read, "Heyyy @Drake, our Costa Mesa location has a solution," while the poster itself featured a head shot of the…

Katy Perry's Request to Trademark "Left Shark" Design Rejected

Katy Perry is trying to register a design for "Left Shark" -- inspired by the costumed dancer who wasn't quite in sync with a second "shark" during the singer's Super Bowl halftime show earlier this year -- but she's hit a roadblock. Her application to the U.S. Trademark Office was examined by David Collier, who determined that not enough evidence was submitted to indicate consumers would associate the "Left Shark" design with Katy's performance, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Katy's also looking to register the phrase "Left Shark." On that front, Collier seeks clarification on the kind of products to which…
