No Truth to Ariana Grande Diva Rumors on "Scream Queens" Set, Says Studio

Earlier this week, rumors surfaced that Ariana Grande’s diva-like behavior on the set of the upcoming Fox show Scream Queens was causing serious problems with co-star Emma Roberts. But on Friday, representatives from Fox Studios told VH1 those rumors are completely untrue. In fact, Ariana hasn’t even been to the set because she’s been on tour. “Ariana Grande is currently on tour and has yet to hit the stages of Scream Queens,” the reps said. “These rumors are false and we look forward to working with her.” The rumors, reported on by VH1's The Gossip Table, claimed Ariana had banned…

Katy Perry's Black Hair Is Her Way of "Mourning" Her Soon-to-End Tour

Katy Perry has dyed her hair just about every color in the rainbow, but now she’s back to black and will be staying that way for a while. She tells E! News she’s keeping it dark for a reason. "It's black [because] I'm in mourning because this tour is almost finished," she says at the premiere of her EPIX concert special, Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour. Katy may be sad to see the tour end, but she’s definitely ready for some down time. "I think it's time for me to have a nap, a little sleeping beauty for a…

Starting next month, Hozier will be a familiar face at music festivals around the world -- from Australia's Byron Bay to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, to California's Coachella, Tennessee's Bonnaroo and England's V Festival.   But it's unlikely that those shows will be more memorable than Hozier's very first festival experience, during which he passed out. Speaking to Billboard for its new cover story, Hozier says he was 16 when he attended his first music festival as a fan.  "I waited in the pit for hours to see James Brown," he recalls, referring to the late Godfather of…

Ed Sheeran Comments on Zayn Leaving 1D; Bandmates Might Make Less Money Now

Ed Sheeran has written a number of tracks for One Direction.  So how does he feel about Zayn Malik’s sudden departure from the group? The singer told Australian radio show Hughesy and Kate he supports Zayn’s decision. "I think whatever makes him happy. The most important thing in life is to be happy, and if he was unhappy in that situation then, yeah, don't stay in it," he said. "You don't want to make yourself unhappy just to earn money, that's not what life's about. You're meant to enjoy life, and if he wasn't enjoying his life then fair play…

Is Taylor Swift Really Dating Calvin Harris?

After they were photographed together in Nashville earlier this week, rumors began that Taylor Swift was dating Scottish deejay/producer Calvin Harris.  Of course, it often seems as if Taylor's automatically linked with any eligible young man she stand anywhere near, so the fact she was spotted with Harris doesn't necessarily prove anything.  But now, TMZ claims to have photographic evidence that the two are more than friends. TMZ has footage and photos of Taylor Calvin holding hands and walking into country superstar Kenny Chesney's concert Thursday night in Nashville, and of the two of them standing together in the audience,…

"It’s not something where I feel that I’m gonna, you know, kick music to the side for a few years and do acting," he told ABC Radio around the time he revealed he was taking the…
