Adele Returns to "Saturday Night Live" Tonight

As we all know, Adele’s long-awaited third album, 25, finally arrived yesterday. To celebrate, the singer is returning to the Saturday Night Live stage tonight for the first time since 2008. She’ll likely be performing her current single “Hello,” and another song from the new album. Actor Matthew McConaughey will be hosting. In new promo clips featuring Adele, Matthew and SNL cast member Cecily Strong, Matthew whips out a ringing flip phone -- much like the one used in Adele’s music video -- and hands it over to the singer. “It’s for you,” he says. And she answers it, “Hello?”…

Why Ed Sheeran Has Elton John to Thank for His Current Success

It's a fact the exposure Ed Sheeran got opening for Taylor Swift on her last tour helped launch him to super-stardom.  But it turns out Ed may never have opened for Taylor if it hadn't been for advice from rock legend Elton John. Elton owns the company that manages Ed, so Ed often asks him for advice.  Elton tells Rolling Stone, "A couple of years ago, he told me that the record company wanted a follow up to [his album], +, but he was also offered a tour with Taylor Swift, 88 shows in America. He said to me. 'What should…

Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello Release Stormy Video for “I Know What You Did Last Summer”

Shawn Mendes and Fifth Harmony's Camila Cabello have released the video for their new duet, “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” In the clip, the two face each other in a stormy, otherworldly landscape. As they sing the song -- about a couple struggling with the consequences of unfaithfulness -- they walk towards each other through snow and rain, but never seem to get any closer. One of the repeated lines in the song is, “Can't seem to let you go/Can't seem to hold you close.” The single was co-written by Shawn and Camila while backstage at a Taylor…

Gwen Stefani Hadn’t Heard of Blake Shelton Before "The Voice"

Had it not been for The Voice, Gwen Stefani might never have known who Blake Shelton was, let alone started dated him. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday, Gwen admits she had never heard of the country singer prior to her stint on the NBC singing competition show. “I didn’t even know who he was before the show,” she says. “I’m an O.C. girl, how would I know?" Gwen has since learned that even though Blake's a country artist, his musical knowledge extends way beyond that genre. "He knows every single ‘80s song," she says. "He literally is a human…

Adele's "25" Arrives Today, but Will She Be the Two Million Album Woman?

The most-anticipated album of the year, Adele's 25, arrives today.  It goes without saying that the album -- which features songwriting contributions from Bruno Mars, Max Martin and OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder -- will be super-successful. But just how big will it be? Big enough to break a sales record that's stood for 15 years -- that's how big. The first record that Adele almost certainly will break is the one Britney Spears currently holds: most albums sold by a female artist in a debut week.  Britney's album Oops!...I Did It Again sold 1.32 million copies in a week back in…
