After Camila Cabello left Fifth Harmony, the group went from a five-piece to a quartet, and fans began speculating that perhaps the girls should change their name, since there was no longer a fifth member.  But it turns out the group HAS a fifth member already: you. Speaking to MTV News, Dinah Jane explains that they decided against a name change, noting "The fans named us Fifth Harmony, and now they're the fifth member." Lauren Jauregui adds, "It was obviously, I feel like, a thought [people had], just because...there's four of us and not five.  But we were all very…

Halsey calls Iggy Azalea a "moron," but apologizes for collaborating with Quavo

Halsey is nothing if not outspoken. In an interview with the U.K. paper The Guardian, the singer dismisses rapper Iggy Azalea as a "f***ing moron." The comment came up as part of a discussion about why Halsey -- who describes herself as "queer" and whose album includes a love duet with bisexual fellow pop star Lauren Jauregui -- would collaborate with Migos rapper Quavo, given his controversial comments about homosexuality. "I think he’s misunderstood,” she says. "Just because I choose to be a socially conscious artist, and I’m pretty good at it, that doesn’t mean every artist is going to…

Ed Sheeran doesn't like festivals, but Sunday, he'll headlines the UK's biggest one

Another career milestone for Ed Sheeran is scheduled for this weekend: Sunday night, he'll be headlining the U.K.'s most prestigious festival: Glastonbury.  But he shouldn't be nervous, considering that, according to Ed, pretty much everyone he knows will be there watching him.

The Chainsmokers release kaleidoscopic new video for Coldplay collabo

Coldplay will release a new EP called Kaleidoscope on July 14, so it's only fitting that a kaleidoscope would play a big part in a new video for the group's collaboration with The Chainsmokers, "Something Just Like This." In the clip, a small boy wearing a superhero outfit -- the same one who appears on the single artwork for the track -- finds a kaleidoscope under his bed.  As he looks through it, we see concert footage from both Coldplay and The Chainsmokers performing the song live, refracted as through though a kaleidoscope. At the end of the clip, the…
