This is my bike song: Rachel Platten starts new cycle with "Broken Glass" single & video

Rachel Platten is starting the next cycle of her career literally: the video for her new song, "Broken Glass," features her and a group of other women riding bicycles through LA's Chinatown. It's not your normal bike ride, though: the women, who hail from around the globe, perform all kinds of balancing tricks and flips on their cycles as Rachel sings the anthemic tune about overcoming the odds.  Two of the women are German world bike-riding champions. "I'm gonna dance on broken glass/I'm gonna make that ceiling crash," Rachel sings., "So what? Still got knives in my back/So what?/So I'm…

Pink chooses Taylor over Katy: "You can't win no matter what"

Are you Team Katy or Team Taylor?  That's the question Pink was asked to answer during an appearance on the British radio station KISS FM.  Amazingly, she actually answered the question. During a series of questions that required her to make choices between two different things, the deejay asked Pink, "Taylor or Katy?"  Pink responded, "Ooo...Taylor. Is that O.K.?" When the deejay said he was fine with that answer, Pink noted, "You can't win no matter what you say!  Everyone wakes up offended." Pink also chose "Netflix and chill" over "Big night out," Instagram over SnapChat, singing in the shower…

On the anniversary of "Shake It Off's" release, Taylor Swift's social media goes black; was she hacked?

The new era of Taylor Swift may be upon us.  Or could it be something more nefarious? The singer has apparently deleted the profile picture on her Twitter page, and all her tweets post 2015.  She's done the same thing on her Facebook page, and deleted all the photos on her Instagram account.  Even her official website has been completely blacked out. When an artist does this, it generally means they're gearing up for a new release, which usually comes with new photos.  Then again, it's possible Taylor isn't the one doing the deleting, and her social media accounts have…

Shawn Mendes & the Chainsmokers "Dare to Live" in new MTV series

Why Sam Hunt initially had "concerns" about "Body Like a Back Road"

Before Sam Hunt’s "Body Like a Back Road" became a top-10 pop hit, it had already set records on the country charts.  The song is so successful that it's hard to believe that when Sam was writing it, he was afraid it might be too shallow, or too sexist. “I wanted to write it because I thought it was a fun song, but I didn’t know for sure if I wanted to put it out,” he explains. “I didn’t want it to come across as objectifying women or to lack depth…I had some concerns, but I tried to make it…
