DNCE's smash single "Cake by the Ocean" features the line, "I'll be Diddy and you be Naomi, whoah-oh" -- a reference to rap mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs and supermodel Naomi Campbell. So, what does Diddy think of that shout-out?  Turns out he digs it. "Actually, really quickly after releasing 'Cake by the Ocean,' we met Diddy," DNCE frontman Joe Jonas tells ABC Radio. "And we’re like, 'Hey man, our song actually mentions your name.' He’s like, 'Oh I know, I know, I know. I love it! Get a picture!' And I was like, “Oh my God. This guy knows what…

DNCE Announce New Single, "Body Moves"

DNCE is unleashing a new track from their upcoming debut album. It's called "Body Moves," and it'll be out next Friday. The track appears on the group's self-titled debut album, due November 18.  We assume it's a sexy tune, since the cover art features a blurred photo of a guy -- possibly DNCE frontman Joe Jonas -- moving in to kiss a blonde wearing black lingerie. The song is the group's third single, following "Cake By the Ocean" and "Toothbrush."  However, it's being billed as the "first single" from the album, so it's not clear if the group's first two…

Considering little Dusty Rose Levine's mom is Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo and her dad is a former People "Sexiest Man Alive," we'd be disappointed if she wasn't cute, honestly. Gwen…
