Gwen Stefani Is "on Such a Creative Roll" with New Music, Says Husband

Gwen Stefani is not only a new coach on NBC's The Voice, and a new mom to son Apollo Bowie Flynn, but she's also working on new music.  The singer told MTV that she's in the process of making both a new album with her band, No Doubt, and a solo album, which will be the follow up to her 2006 release The Sweet Escape. Many people who've been coaches or mentors on The Voice say the contestants on their teams inspire them musically, but in Gwen's case, she's being inspired by one of her fellow coaches.  Asked if Gwen's…

Justin Bieber Strips Down on "Fashion Rocks" Special

Justin Bieber delivered the most memorable moment on the CBS Fashion Rocks special on Tuesday night -- and he didn't even perform. As he introduced Rita Ora alongside model Lara Stone, Justin stripped off his clothing. By the time he was done, he was only wearing his boxers. He explained that he doesn't feel comfortable unless he's in his "Calvins." Justin didn't receive a warm welcome from the crowd at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. He was booed as he walked on stage -- a fact that he may have been referencing when he later tweeted, "Grandma always…

Sam Smith: If I Was Happy, My Music Might Suck

Like Adele, to whom he's often compared, Sam Smith has turned his personal heartbreak into hit songs: many of the tracks on his album In the Lonely Hour, including "Stay with Me," were inspired by his unrequited love for a man who didn't reciprocate his feelings. And while Sam says that he'd really like to be in a happy relationship, he's worried that it would have a negative effect on his music. Asked by Q magazine if he believes there's someone out there who's perfect for him, Sam says, "God!  I hope so! That's what I'm longing for.  But then, if…

Ariana Grande's Manager Denies Diva Claims, Defends Her on Twitter

If Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, jumped on Twitter to defend the Bieb every time he got into trouble, his fingers would never leave his keyboard.  But he couldn't stand idly by and listen while people started spreading rumors about one of his other artists, Ariana Grande. It all started when Ariana performed at the fundraising TV special Stand Up 2 Cancer this past Friday night.  Rumors flew that she was being a total diva on set, insisting that photographers only shoot her from her left side, stating that she'd refuse to answer certain questions, and storming off in a…

Colbie Caillat Unloads Home for $1.6 Million; Contributes to New Nicholas Sparks Movie Soundtrack

Just two months after putting in on the market, Colbie Caillat has sold her home in Westlake Village, CA, according to Realty Today. The singer listed her home for $1.79 million in July, and just sold it for $1.6 million, which is what she paid for it when she bought it in 2010.  The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home features hardwood flooring, high ceilings, French doors and a fireplace in the master bedroom, as well as a pool with a spa and an outdoor barbecue area.  At 3,600 square feet, though, it's pretty modest by pop star standards. This is the second…

U2 frontman Bono tells Time magazine he and his band mates were paid by Apple for the giveaway, though he wouldn't say how much. He says, “I don’t believe in free music.

Britney Spears Launches New Lingerie Collection in NYC

Unfortunately, Tuesday's New York City launch of The Initimate Britney Spears Collection -- Britney's new line of lingerie and sleepwear -- did not feature the star prancing down the runway in a bra and panties.  But there were more than enough scantily clad women onstage to make up for that. The unveiling of Britney's collection took place at, of all places, the New York City Public Library, in a beautiful room with a glass dome, with a white carpet, white chairs and chocolates with Britney wrappers for everyone.  The curtains on the stage parted to reveal a room done up…
