Taylor Swift Close to Overtaking The Beatles in Overall "Billboard" Hits

It's hard to believe, but Taylor Swift is poised to overtake The Beatles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Taylor's song "You Are in Love," from the deluxe edition of her album 1989, was just made available on iTunes for download, and thanks to its sales, the song has entered the Billboard Hot 100 at #83.  This means in her career, Taylor has now scored 68 entries on that chart.  There are only nine musical acts in history who've had more, and next on the list is The Beatles, with 71.  If Taylor keeps releasing individual tracks from 1989, it…

If you're a Madonna fan, you probably know that she dislikes looking back.  But on her new album, Rebel Heart, there's a song called "Veni, Vidi, Vici" -- Latin for "I Came, I Saw, I Conquered" -- in which she basically tells the story of her career while name-checking the titles of her biggest hits, from "Holiday" and "Borderline" to "Ray of Light" and "Open Your Heart."   It's an unusual move for the Queen of Pop, but she tells the The New York Times why she chose to do it.

OneRepublic's "Native" Finally Hits 1 Million in Sales

Congratulations to OneRepublic: the band has scored the second million-seller of its career, Billboard reports. This past week, Native, the band's third album, crossed the million mark.  Originally released two years ago, the album was a slow-building success: the first two singles, "Feel Again" and "If I Lose Myself," did all right, but it was the release of the third single, "Counting Stars," that really goosed sales of the record.  The song became a massive hit, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100; it was also a worldwide smash. OneRepublic's first album, 2007's Dreaming Out Loud, is also a…

She tells MTV that she was first inspired to go full throwback after seeing ‘80s pop queen Cyndi Lauper at a festival in Japan last summer.

Kelly Clarkson Admits Dating Justin Guarini, Clarifies Past "Pitchy Strippers" Remark

Maybe the reason Kelly Clarkson has such bad memories of her contractual obligation movie, From Justin to Kelly, is because it reminds her that her and the curly-haired American Idol season one runner-up used to be romantically involved. Appearing on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Thursday night, Kelly and host Andy Cohen played a game of "Plead the Fifth," where Cohen asked her a series of potentially uncomfortable questions and gave her the opportunity to "plead the Fifth" and not answer.  One of the questions was about Kelly's relationship with Justin, who's said publicly that they had a fling.  So…

John Mayer Admits to "Ego Addiction"

These days, John Mayer doesn't run his mouth about whomever he happens to be dating -- right now, it appears to be Katy Perry -- but that's because he learned his lesson when he got in trouble for doing it before. In an interview with Ronan Farrow that will air Saturday on MSNBC, and which was excerpted on NBC's Today on Friday, John spoke about his tendency to over-share in the press about his relationships with the likes of Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston.  "I went, 'All right, dude, you did a couple interviews where you were out of touch…
