Meghan Trainor Can't Help Loving Herself on New Single, "Me Too"

Meghan Trainor has another new tune to share with us. She released “Me Too” as an instant grat track when you pre-order her upcoming second album, Thank You. The song -- yet another self-confident anthem -- will serve as Meghan’s follow-up single to “No.” “I thank God every day/That I woke up feeling this way/And I can’t help loving myself/And I don’t need nobody else,” she sings over an infectious beat. She then brazenly proclaims, “If I was you, I would wanna be me too.” Meghan also has released the songs "Better," "Mom," "I Love Me" and "Watch Me Do"…

Janet Jackson Releases Dance-Heavy “Dammn Baby” Video Amid Pregnancy Reports

A day after reports proclaimed Janet Jackson is pregnant with her first child, the singer has released the video for her appropriately titled new single, “Dammn Baby.” In classic Janet fashion, the black-and-white clip is heavy on the dance moves. Janet and her backup dancers are the focal point as they perform a choreographed routine against a plain backdrop. Janet also gets the chance to bust some moves on her own during the bridge of the sultry tune. “Dammn Baby” is featured on Janet’s 2015 album Unbreakable. Last month she postponed the rest of her Unbreakable world tour, saying that…

Shade Wars? Nicki Minaj Snubs Demi Lovato in Met Gala Photo, Lovato Responds

Nicki Minaj may have helped Demi Lovato's decision to avoid future Met Galas. It seems like Queens rapper shaded the pop star by neglecting to tag her in an Instagram post. The "Anaconda" star shared an image from Monday's Met Gala red carpet featuring Demi and their escort for the night, Jeremy Scott, but interestingly only tagged the Moschino designer, apparently snubbing the "Stone Cold" singer. The obvious shade did not go unnoticed by Lovato, who went on Snapchat to post an altered frowny face photo with the caption: "When you aren't mentioned in a post but didn't do s***…

Daya Was So Happy She "Cried For Hours" After Michelle Obama Complimented Her

Ever since she broke through with her own single, "Hide Away," and her Chainsmokers collabo "Don't Let Me Down," Daya has gotten to do some pretty impressive stuff, but she says what happened to her last month left her "speechless" and crying happy tears "for hours." "I think the best thing that’s happened in the past year, and there have been so many cool moments, but the best was probably performing on the White House lawn a couple of weekends ago for Easter," the 17-year-old singer tells ABC Radio.

When She Was Young: Adele Turns 28 Today

Her current album is called 25, but Adele turns 28 today.  The singer has a day off from her in-progress world tour to celebrate, so she'll have plenty of time to reflect on all that she's accomplished since her album 21 made her a global superstar. It's hard to believe that just five years ago, we barely knew Adele, born Adele Laurie Blue Adkins in London in 1988.  The release of "Rolling in the Deep" and its parent album 21 changed all that.  Now, the down-to-earth singer has an incredible 10 Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and an Academy…
