FIFTH HARMONY’S NORMANI SIGNS SOLO RECORD DEAL – (04/10/2018)

Fifth Harmony recently announced that they were going on hiatus so all four members could pursue solo projects. Now one of them has just taken a big step in that direction.

Normani Kordei, who is now just going by “Normani,” has signed a solo record deal. She’s the first artist signed to a new label called Keep Cool, a division of RCA Records. She’s currently working on her debut album. Last month, she released a duet with Khalid, “Love Lies.”

In a statement, Normani says, “I’m so incredibly grateful to be able to be in a place where I can explore myself as an artist and what I’m capable of. Never in a million years did I think I would be in this position in 2018. Everyone has been so supportive and patient, thank you so much to my fans for giving me the opportunity.”

She adds, “I’m so thankful to my girls that we created this space among ourselves to explore and branch out creatively. Fifth Harmony has always been and will always be home.”

No word on when we’ll get more music from Normani.

IMAGINE DRAGONS REACTS TO MASTERS SHOUT-OUT – (04/10/2018)

When golfer Patrick Reed won the Masters on Sunday, commentator Nick Faldo confused some viewers when he quoted the line “Welcome to the new age, to the new age.”

Those lines, from the Imagine Dragons hit “Radioactive,” inspired several golf fans to make fun of Faldo and Reed, but the band members themselves appreciated the shout-out.

“Welcome to the new age,” the band tweeted Sunday. “Love it or hate it.”

Apparently, the 27-year-old Reed is a big fan of Imagine Dragons and listens to “Radioactive” to get pumped before playing.

INVESTIGATION LAUNCHED AFTER HOSPITAL STAFF ASKED ED SHEERAN FOR PHOTOS: Hospital staff in Suffolk, England, were in hot water last year after it was reported that some members of the team asked Ed Sheeran for autographs and photos when the artist was treated for a broken arm. Ipswich Hospital launched a review into its policy for the care of “high-profile” patients shortly after Sheeran‘s visit to the hospital in October 2017, it has now been revealed. Sheeran broke his right wrist and left elbow following a cycling accident in October, and was subsequently admitted to Ipswich Hospital. The injuries were severe enough for Sheeran to cancel a number of dates of his Asia tour. A spokesperson for the hospital said that a review into the hospital’s care of “high-profile” patients was launched the following month – although they maintained that the review in question had already been due to take place in November 2017. The review covered “confidentiality, privacy of the patient and their loved ones and practical considerations,” according to the spokesperson.

ARIANA GRANDE SETS RELEASE DATE FOR FIRST SINGLE FROM NEW ALBUM: Ariana Grande is releasing the first single from her new album on April 27th, Variety reports. She has collaborated with Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, and Pharrell Williams on the project. It is reportedly very personal and inspired by her experiences from the past two years, including the tragic bombing at her concert in Manchester, England, last May 22nd. Ariana has kept a fairly low profile since wrapping up her Dangerous Woman tour in September, following her One Love Manchester benefit concert. She also performed “Be Alright” at the March for Our Lives rally in Washington D.C. last month, and at a benefit concert in Charlottesville, Virginia, in September.
