FALL OUT BOY POSTPONES ALBUM RELEASE UNTIL 2018 – (08/04/2017)

Fall Out Boy singer Patrick Stump says the band is postponing the release of their new album, Mania, until next year. Although the disc was set to drop on September 15th, that date has now been pushed back to January 19th.

Stump Tweeted, “Pretty big bummer. We had some long talks and a lot to weigh about it all and collectively thought that was best.” In a lengthy letter to fans, Stump continued, “I know we’re supposed to come up with some really exciting story to spin in pull-quotes about how the studio exploded and I ran in to save Pete (Wentz)’s bass or something. Or like aliens stole the master tapes. That would be fun for sure but the truth is, we just want the record to be better than we can make it in the next couple weeks and it will require a little more time.”

The band had already issued two singles from the LP, “Champion” and “Young And Menace.” Promotional efforts for the original September release were already underway, with the band debuting a star-studded video for “Champion” earlier this month and also performing on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

However, the band’s previously announced fall tour is still on. It will begin October 20th in Cleveland, Ohio, as scheduled. For now, the band has North American shows planned through mid-November, along with Australia and New Zealand shows for February in March. Stump ended his letter hinting at a U.K./Europe tour.

SELENA GOMEZ SAYS THE WEEKND IS HER ‘BEST FRIEND’ – (08/04/2017)

In a new cover story with InStyle magazine, Selena Gomez opens up about her relationship with The Weeknd and how she takes care of her mental health.

The singer says she considers The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – her best friend, and that she’s stronger in this relationship than ever before.

“It’s really important for me to love and nourish my friends and family and to make sure that I never get influenced by a guy,” Selena says. “I’ve wanted to be in a strong headspace for years, and I really wasn’t. Before, I was so young and easily influenced, and I’d feel insecure.”

She adds, “You want someone to add to your life, not to complete you, if that makes sense. I’m lucky because he’s more of a best friend than anything else.” Selena also says she keeps up her mental health by regularly attending therapy. “I believe in that and talking about where you are,” she says. “But I’m in a really, really healthy place.”

L’OREAL AMBASSADOR HELEN MIRREN SAYS CREAM DOES ‘‘F*** ALL’ – (08/04/2017)

Dame Helen Mirren, a L’Oreal brand ambassador, has certainly been getting L’Oreal a lot of attention, but perhaps not the kind it was hoping for.

The 72-year-old recently blurted out that the skin-care line’s moisturizer “probably does f*** all” during a press panel for L’Oreal in France.

  • “I’m not setting standards for others. All I can do is be who I am. I’ve always loved make-up,” the Oscar winner said.
  • “I’m an eternal optimist – I know that when I put my moisturizer on, it probably does f*** all, but it just makes me feel better. I’ve always said to L’Oreal as well that I will only do what makes me feel better.”
  • Mirren is the oldest celebrity model for the brand and has insisted that ads featuring her have not been digitally altered.
  • L’Oreal has not yet responded.

LORDE TRAVELS THE WORLD IN ‘PERFECT PLACES’ VIDEO – (08/04/2017)

Lorde has premiered the video for her song “Perfect Places,” the closing track on her sophomore album, Melodrama.

The far-traveling clip finds the New Zealand singer in a variety of exotic locales as she searches for “perfect places.”

“A drink, a drumbeat, a paradise, a prison…a far-off island of the mind…let’s go to PERFECT PLACES,” Lorde tweets of the video.

Lorde will hit a number of music festivals this summer and will embark on a North American headlining tour in support of “Melodrama” next spring.

KESHA RELEASES NEW SONG ‘HYMN’ – (08/04/2017)

Kesha has released another song from her upcoming album, Rainbow, titled “Hymn.” The song is an anthem for anyone who’s ever felt like a misfit, Kesha said.

“I think that one of the reasons why my music connects with people who feel like they don’t fit in is because I have never fit in either – this is why the song ‘Hymn’ is so special to me,” she writes in an essay on Mic.com. “The longer title was ‘Hymn for the Hymnless.’ And when I say ‘hymnless,’ I’m talking about people who feel like they don’t fit in, people who feel like they don’t have a hymn.”

Kesha co-wrote the song with her mom, Pebe Sebert, as well as a few other songwriters.

“I’m a fragile soul for this world – I feel like I live by something unexplainable [sp] and magical in outer space,” Kesha writes. “I love the idea of people with similar philosophies being brought together, and that was one of the inspirations for this song.”

Kesha’s Rainbow album will be released on August 11th. She’ll be performing on Good Morning America on August 9th.
