Ella Henderson Says Some of Her Fans' Interpretations of "Ghost" Are "Hilarious"

You've probably realized by now that Ella Henderson's breakout hit "Ghost" isn't about an actual ghost -- it's about being haunted by the memory of someone you loved.  But Ella says that her fans have been interpreting the song in a number of different ways, because the "ghost" can be anything that's tormenting you and driving you crazy. "People relate to it in so many different ways, it’s hilarious," she tells ABC Radio.  "I mean, it could be about your ex, about your boss at work, even about a bad zit on your face! So there’s so many ways you…

Madonna on Sexism: “For Me, the Fight Has Never Ended”

Back in 1990, Madonna was featured on Cosmopolitan magazine’s 25th anniversary cover.  Now she’s back on the cover, 25 years later, for the magazine’s 50th anniversary issue. Though she’s remained as provocative as ever, the singer believes society hasn’t changed much from when she first hit the scene.   "Don't be fooled, not much has changed -- certainly not for women,” Madonna tells the mag. “We still live in a very sexist society that wants to limit people. Since I started, I've had people giving me a hard time because they didn't think you could be sexual or have sexuality…

Anne Hathaway Channels Miley Cyrus with "Wrecking Ball" Performance on "Lip Sync Battle"

Miley Cyrus should be proud. For an upcoming appearance on Spike’s Lip Sync Battle, Anne Hathaway dresses up like the pop singer and performs a dramatic, lip-synced rendition of “Wrecking Ball.” The Oscar-winner brings out a real-life wrecking ball to swing on, though she draws the line at swinging naked like Miley did in her music video. She does, however, show some Miley-esque sass by flipping the bird at her competition, actress Emily Blunt. Anne’s Miley-inspired Lip Sync Battle performance will air Thursday, April 9 at 10 p.m., ET.

Andy Grammer on "Honey I'm Good": Song Is "Crass," but Video Has "Heart"

Andy Grammer's latest hit, "Honey I'm Good," is a unique love song: it's about a guy who gets hit on by a hot girl and, while tempted, turns her down because he's taken.  Andy says the frankness of the song is a sharp contrast to the song's video, which celebrates the joys of couplehood. "The song is kind of like a slightly crass take on how hard it is and how sweet it is if you stay together with someone," Andy tells ABC Radio. "And so we wanted to go 'heart' more than 'crass' with the video."  So instead of…
