Lorde reveals "Melodrama"'s concept and her "reverence" for "holy" pop music

It turns out that Lorde's new album, Melodrama, due in June, is a concept album...kind of. Speaking to the New York Times, Lorde says she decided that the songs on Melodrama should tell the story of a house party, so she could string together different moods and emotions and have them all fit together somehow.  "With a party, there’s that moment where a great song comes on and you’re ecstatic,” she tells the Times. “And then there’s that moment later on where you’re alone in the bathroom, looking in the mirror, you don’t think you look good, and you start…

The Chainsmokers reveal what inspired "Paris" -- and no, it wasn't Paris

The Chainsmokers' top-10 hit "Paris" wasn't written in Paris, and the French city didn't inspire it, either.  As the duo explains in a track-by-track description of their new album posted on Facebook, it was actually inspired by a friend of theirs whose life was out of control. The duo writes, "Paris was written in Stockholm (although we had just visited Paris days before) late one night after a show. It started with the lyrics, 'we were staying in Paris' and unfolded from there. The lyrics may seem vague at first, but their inspiration comes from a real place." Specifically, the…

Orlando Bloom on breakup with Katy Perry: "We're friends"

Apparently there are no hard feeling between Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom following the couple's breakup last month. "We're friends," the British actor tells ELLE UK. "It's good. We're all grown-up. She happens to be someone who is very visible, but I don't think anybody cares what I'm up to. Nor should they. It's between us. It's better to set an example for kids and show that [break-ups] don't have to be about hate." Orlando's first public comments on the breakup reflect something Katy wrote on Twitter in March. "How bout a new way of thinking for 2017!?" Katy wrote.…
