Lorde & Charli XCX Talk Puking and Going Braless in "V" Magazine

At the tender age of 18, Lorde has accomplished things artists twice her age haven't managed to do: she's won multiple Grammys, sold out world tours, scored a platinum album and more.  But it seems she feels her biggest success has been her ability to not vomit in public. In the new issue of V magazine, the singer is asked to name her biggest accomplishment. "Not puking on camera" is her answer.  She also reveals that her current obsession is "knitting," along with "dollar stores," which she calls "a lifelong obsession."  The knitting thing appears to be an influence from…

One Direction Meets the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; Harry Says, "Congratulations on the Bump"

Pop royalty met British royalty Thursday night in London, when One Direction greeted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- better known as Prince William and Kate Middleton -- at the London Palladium. The royal couple were attending their first Royal Variety performance -- an annual charity event -- at the famed venue.  So what do you say to royalty when you first meet them?  If you’re Harry Styles, you tell Kate, “Congratulations on the bump,” meaning Kate’s second pregnancy, although Harry tells U.K. paper The Telegraph that the duchess “didn’t look bumpy.” Liam Payne was far less casual, saying…

Taylor Swift's "1989" to Spend Third Week at #1, but You'd Be Surprised Where It's Selling

There's just no slowing down Taylor Swift. Billboard reports that she'll be spending a third week at #1 with her new album 1989. Industry experts predict that in its third week of release, 1989 will still sell more than 300,000 copies, easily blowing past any of the new albums that just came out in the past week.  The album that will likely come closest is Foo Fighters' Sonic Highways, but that's only going to sell about 190,000 copies, good enough for a #2 debut. Other albums expected to debut in the top 10 include new discs from Pink Floyd, Garth…

Miley Cyrus & Patrick Schwarzenegger Share a Kiss and a Selfie

Seems those rumors about Miley Cyrus having a new man in her life are true. MTV’s got a great shot of Miley and Patrick Schwarzenegger smooching Thursday night at a University of Southern California football game in L.A., while Patrick apparently takes a selfie, which he and Miley are later seen checking out on his phone. Patrick -- yup, son of Arnold -- and Miley, both 21, were first rumored to be an item a few months ago, but have been seen out together a lot more lately.  Or maybe people are only noticing now.

Lorde Says Her "Mom" Comment About Naked Kim K. Photo Was Positive

Looks like the world just doesn't understand the way 18-year-old girls talk these days.  That's what Lorde is now saying about the misinterpretation of a comment she made about Kim Kardashian's naked photos for Paper magazine. Lorde posted a link to the photos and wrote, "mom."  Many believed that Lorde was criticizing Kim, the mother of a young girl, for posing nude; Glee star Naya Rivera made essentially the same criticism.  But as Lorde explains on Tumblr, her comment was a thumbs-up to Kim, who's married to the man she calls her "hero," Kanye West. "i retweeted kim’s amazing cover…
