Simon Cowell Won't Pressure One Direction to Reunite After Hiatus

Following reports last weekend that One Direction will be taking an extended break next year, their mentor, Simon Cowell, insists he's leaving the group's future up to them. Speaking at the launch of the 12th season of Britain's X Factor on Wednesday, the show's creator and judge vowed he won't put pressure on 1D to reunite after their hiatus, explaining the group, which formed on the show five years ago, deserves a year off, according to the Daily Mail. Cowell admitted that he'd "known for a while that they were going to take this year off," explaining, "They had to…

Nicki Minaj Opening Sunday's MTV VMAs Telecast

Here's proof Nicki Minaj no longer holds a grudge against the MTV Video Music Awards: she's opening the 2015 edition of the show this Sunday night. Nicki let the cat out of the bag on Thursday, when she posted on her Instagram a photo of a sonogram of a Moonman statue. The picture no longer appears on her page, but MTV later confirmed the news. You may recall, after this year's nominees were announced, Nicki complained her hit "Anaconda" was excluded from the Video of the Year category, and that her collaboration with Beyoncé, "Feeling Myself," was snubbed entirely. She…

Miley Cyrus Promises "Raw, Psychedelic" MTV VMAs; Producers Predict "Mayhem" and a "Wild & Crazy Night"

Two years after the twerk heard 'round the world, and a year after she won the top prize, Miley Cyrus returns to  the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday night as the host.  Complaining that last year's show had "no energy," she tells The New York Times this year's installment will be "psychedelic and raw." Miley says that the decision to have her host came from Van Toffler, one of the show's executive producers, who is leaving the company.  As she tells the Times, "He's leaving, so he can’t get fired. He was like, 'I want to do something crazy…

Could We Be Getting That Long-Awaited Adele Album in November?

Could it be true? Will we get a new Adele album before the year is over? According to Billboard, the singer’s record label is planning for a November release.

Lady Gaga Says "American Horror Story" Role Will Influence New Music

Lady Gaga’s music might be taking a creepier turn. The singer tells Entertainment Weekly that her experience playing a bloodthirsty hotel owner on American Horror Story: Hotel will influence her new music. “Yes it will,” she says. “It will inform me from this day forward, everyday more and more.” But she’s not trying to combine her music and acting careers just yet. Right now her acting gig is getting all of her attention. “This is my focus right now,” Gaga says. “I don’t view this as a side thing that I’m doing in between other things. Cramming things in just…

Ellie Goulding on New Album: “I’m Still the Emotional Wreck I’ve Always Been”

Things have been going pretty well for Ellie Goulding. She scored a number-one hit this year with “Love Me Like You Do,” she’s in a solid relationship with bassist Dougie Poysner and she a bona-fide member of Taylor Swift’s squad. But if you think her new album is going to be filled only with happy songs, you’d be mistaken. "I'm still the emotional wreck I've always been," Ellie tells Billboard. "I get obsessed with the idea that people sabotage things that are already perfect." She says initially she intended to write songs “about the world,” but her old sensibilities crept back…

Ed Sheeran's Lion Tattoo: Real or Fake?

Is Ed Sheeran’s lion tattoo real or fake? We can barely keep track. Wednesday, the singer posted an Instagram photo seemingly suggesting that his controversial chest ink was just an elaborate prank. But hours later, he posted another photo revealing his previous post was a lie. So, yes, Ed really did get a massive lion tattooed on his chest. The confusion began when Ed posted a photo displaying his tattoo-less bare chest along with the caption, “Was only joking about the lion.” But that just didn’t seem plausible, being that Ed had passionately defended the tat against critics on Twitter…
