JENNIFER ANISTON AND ANGELINA JOLIE TO PRESENT AT GOLDEN GLOBES – (01/05/2018)

For lovers of tabloid scandals, the news that Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie will both present at the 2018 Golden Globes came as a bit of a shock.

Aniston was married to Brad Pitt from 2000-2005. Pitt famously left the Friends star after meeting Jolie on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and together, the pair share six children together. They split in 2016.

  • Aniston and Pitt’s divorce and his re-coupling with Jolie (they eventually married) happened on the world stage, with all three of them granting interviews with major publications to share their side of the story.
  • At the time of Aniston and Pitt’s split, she told Vanity Fair magazine: “I’m a human being, having a human experience in front of the world. I wish it weren’t in front of the world. I try really hard to rise above it.”
  • “I have to think there’s some reason I have called this into my life. I have to believe that – otherwise it’s just cruel.”
  • She added:  “Am I lonely? Yes. Am I upset? Yes. Am I confused? Yes. Do I have my days when I’ve thrown a little pity party for myself? Absolutely.”
  • For Aniston, those days appear to be in the past. She married actor Justin Theroux in 2015 after four years together.
  • The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has slowly been rolling out the list of presenters for the 2018 Golden Globes. In addition to Aniston and Jolie, Helen Mirren and Emma Stone have been among presenters recently announced.
  • Against the backdrop of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements though, observers predict that the two stars will put their past conflicts to bed in a show of unity. Aniston recently donated $500,000 to the Time’s Up GoFundMe campaign and Jolie was among the dozens of actresses who publicly accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.
  • Time’s Up has also asked the Golden Globe attendees to wear black in a show of solidarity. The Golden Globe Awards take place Sunday, January 7th and will air on NBC at 8 pm EST.

CHARLIE PUTH TAPS BOYZ II MEN FOR NEW SONG ‘IF YOU LEAVE ME NOW’ – (01/05/2018)

Charlie Puth has teamed with Boyz II Men for a new throwback song, “If You Leave Me Now.” “It’s probably one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written,” Puth said of the smooth, soulful song that makes the most of Boyz II Men’s soaring melodies.

The song is the latest advanced treat ahead of Puth’s anticipated second album, Voicenotes, which is now due to debut May 11th. The album was supposed to come out on January 19th.

CAMILA CABELLO TEASES NEW TRACKS ‘ALL THESE YEARS’ & ‘SHE LOSES CONTROL’ – (01/05/2018)

Camila Cabello’s debut studio album drops next Friday, and the former Fifth Harmony singer-turned-solo-star has kept her Instagram followers on their toes with a group of song teasers.

Fans have already heard “Never Be The Same,” which earned a post. But she also debuted snippets of two never-before-heard tracks.

“All These Years” features percussive harmonies with the lyrics: “And it was just a quick hit/ and you had to go…and you probably will never know.” And “She Loses Control” includes the lyrics “She loves control, she wants it her way.”

The teasers are accompanied by animation on notebook paper.

TAYLOR SWIFT’S TEAM RESPONDS TO ‘SHAKE IT OFF’ LAWSUIT: Taylor Swift’s legal team is attempting to shake off a lawsuit filed against the singer. In September, songwriters Nathan Butler and Sean Hall claimed that Taylor’s No. 1 hit “Shake It Off” ripped off their song “Plays Gon’ Play,” a 2001 hit for the girl group 3LW. But in a new motion filed in U.S. district court in California, Taylor’s lawyers say that it’s impossible to claiming plagiarism over the concept of “players gonna play/haters gonna hate.” The chorus of the 3LW song goes, “Playas, they gonna play, and haters, they gonna hate,” while Taylor’s song includes the lyrics “Players gonna play, play, play, play, play, and haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate.” In the motion, Taylor’s lawyers write, “There can be no copyright protection in ‘playas, they gonna play and haters, they gonna hate,’ because it would impermissibly monopolize the idea that players will play and haters will hate.” In addition, the lawyers said that Butler and Hall’s “claim to being the only ones in the world who can refer to players playing and haters hating is frivolous.” Taylor’s team is asking for the case to be dismissed.
