Jennifer Lopez Isn't Pregnant, Says Rep

No need to clear your calendar for the baby shower: despite reports, Jennifer Lopez is not pregnant. By “reports,” we mean a claim by Life & Style magazine Wednesday that the 47-year-old singer and actress is pregnant by her 29-year-old boyfriend, Casper Smart.  Citing an unspecified source, the mag claims he’s been “been begging Jennifer for a baby for years,” and has been waiting on J-Lo “hand and foot” now that she’s expecting.

Charlie Puth Likes His "Perfect Balance" of Solo Hits & Collabos

Because, according to Charlie, teaming up with different musicians makes him up his game.

Twenty One Pilots' "Blurryface" Flies Past One Million in US Sales

Twenty One Pilots now has one less thing to be stressed out about. The band's breakthrough album, Blurryface, has officially surpassed one million in U.S. sales. According to Billboard, Blurryface reached the milestone during the week ending July 21.
