Taylor Swift's Requirements for First Official Pop Album 1989: "Energy," "Electricity" & "Sharpness"

Unless you've been in a cave for the past six months or so, you know that Taylor Swift's new album 1989 officially arrives on Monday.  She's said numerous times that the disc -- titled after the year of her birth -- was inspired by late-'80s pop music, but Taylor reveals that she didn't set out to make a record like that: it just kinda ended up that way. "The 1989 album title hit me actually, the night of the Grammys this year," she explains. "I went home and ate a bunch of In-N-Out Burger and sat around with my backup…

Sia Thrilled with Jim Carrey's "Saturday Night Live" "Chandelier" Dance Performance

One of the highlights of Saturday Night Live last weekend was a skit in which host Jim Carrey tries to win a Halloween costume competition by dressing up, and then dancing like, the little girl in Sia's famous video for "Chandelier."  One viewer in particular enjoyed the skit: Sia herself. The notoriously-private Australian singer jumped on Twitter Saturday and Sunday to comment about how happy she was with the skit, which featured Carrey and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon both dressed as little Maddie Ziegler, who wears a nude-colored leotard and a blonde bob wig in the "Chandelier" video while…

During the concert, Kelly told the audience, "This is a church song. This is a soulful song. This is one of my favorite songs out right now."  As the audience cheered, she laughed, "You think you know it, but you don't -- it's not Sam Smith!"  She then launched into "Shake It Off," but turned the first verse…

Happy 30th Birthday, Katy Perry!

Katy Perry turns 30 Saturday, and according to reports, she'll be spending her big day with her friends and her crew in Morocco -- and possibly scarfing down a cake covered in Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip frosting.  But whether or not the singer actually feels 30 is a different matter. "I still feel 13 on the inside," Katy told People magazine back in July. "I think you see a lot of my [inner] child in the show onstage.  I tweeted the other day, 'Sometimes it's hard being a child in this adult body.'"  But Katy did say that she had…
