Solange Knowles Weds in New Orleans

Solange Knowles is officially off the market. Beyoncé's 28-year-old sister tied the knot with video director Alan Ferguson in New Orleans before approximately 200 friends and family members Sunday, according to People magazine. "Beaming. Calm. They looked pretty calm, relaxed on their wedding day," an onlooker tells the magazine, adding the couple was "definitely happy." The wedding attendees included Beyoncé, her husband Jay Z and their daughter, Blue Ivy. Ferguson, 51, has directed videos for Beyoncé, Katy Perry and John Legend.

The new edition of the Band Aid charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” premiered Sunday on Britain TV, during an episode of the singing competition The X Factor.

Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, Miley, Macklemore, Lorde & More Parodied in SNL Commercial "Young Tarts & Old Farts"

The success of Cheek to Cheek, the duets album featuring Lady Gaga singing with 80-something legend Tony Bennett, has inspired a Saturday Night Live parody that imagines more duets featuring today's pop stars and older stars of yesteryear. This past weekend, the show aired a fake commercial for an album called Young Tarts & Old Farts.  Among the improbable and ill-conceived team-ups shown: a very loud Ariana Grande singing "Endless Love" with Lionel Richie; Barry Manilow singing "Copacabana" with this week's musical guest, Kendrick Lamar, and Macklemore rapping "Same Love" with legendary diva Diana Ross, who claims to have "invented…

What Broke Taylor Swift's Heart? Hint: It Wasn't a Boy

Taylor Swift is known for writing sad and angry songs about failed relationships, but she says what has truly devastated her in recent years isn't some guy breaking up with her: it's the fact that people are obsessed with her love life, and don't give her props for her musical achievements. Speaking to US Weekly, Taylor says the focus on her romances and not her music "broke my heart," adding, "I was selling out stadiums and it was all people talked about."   So after she split with Harry Styles in early 2013, Taylor decided to table the dating scene for…

Hozier Intimidated by Nick Kroll, Totally Fine with Taylor Swift

Ever since the Irish singer Hozier -- born Andrew Hozier-Byrne -- became famous thanks to his song "Take Me to Church," he's gotten the chance to hang out with all kinds of people who are more famous than he is, but he seems to have an odd sense of who, exactly, he should be starstruck by. Taylor Swift is a fan of Hozier's and he tells Billboard  that he got a chance to hang out with her in Nashville during one of her "secret sessions" fan get-togethers.  "Hanging out with Taylor as she was baking cookies for her fans was…

Lorde & Charli XCX Talk Puking and Going Braless in "V" Magazine

At the tender age of 18, Lorde has accomplished things artists twice her age haven't managed to do: she's won multiple Grammys, sold out world tours, scored a platinum album and more.  But it seems she feels her biggest success has been her ability to not vomit in public. In the new issue of V magazine, the singer is asked to name her biggest accomplishment. "Not puking on camera" is her answer.  She also reveals that her current obsession is "knitting," along with "dollar stores," which she calls "a lifelong obsession."  The knitting thing appears to be an influence from…

One Direction Meets the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; Harry Says, "Congratulations on the Bump"

Pop royalty met British royalty Thursday night in London, when One Direction greeted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- better known as Prince William and Kate Middleton -- at the London Palladium. The royal couple were attending their first Royal Variety performance -- an annual charity event -- at the famed venue.  So what do you say to royalty when you first meet them?  If you’re Harry Styles, you tell Kate, “Congratulations on the bump,” meaning Kate’s second pregnancy, although Harry tells U.K. paper The Telegraph that the duchess “didn’t look bumpy.” Liam Payne was far less casual, saying…

Taylor Swift's "1989" to Spend Third Week at #1, but You'd Be Surprised Where It's Selling

There's just no slowing down Taylor Swift. Billboard reports that she'll be spending a third week at #1 with her new album 1989. Industry experts predict that in its third week of release, 1989 will still sell more than 300,000 copies, easily blowing past any of the new albums that just came out in the past week.  The album that will likely come closest is Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways, but that's only going to sell about 190,000 copies, good enough for a #2 debut. Other albums expected to debut in the top 10 include new discs from Pink Floyd, Garth…

Miley Cyrus & Patrick Schwarzenegger Share a Kiss and a Selfie

Seems those rumors about Miley Cyrus having a new man in her life are true. MTV’s got a great shot of Miley and Patrick Schwarzenegger smooching Thursday night at a University of Southern California football game in L.A., while Patrick apparently takes a selfie, which he and Miley are later seen checking out on his phone. Patrick -- yup, son of Arnold -- and Miley, both 21, were first rumored to be an item a few months ago, but have been seen out together a lot more lately.  Or maybe people are only noticing now.
