After scoring a massive hit by teaming up with Nelly on "Cruise," country duo Florida Georgia Line have returned to the pop charts again, thanks to a collaboration with Jason Derulo on a remix of their song "This Is How We Roll."  But the guys say they weren't put together with Jason; the whole thing happened organically.

Taylor Swift: "Selling Millions of Records Doesn't Make Me Feel Cool"

Taylor Swift's new #1 hit "Shake It Off" is an invitation to do your own thing and not worry about fitting in or looking cool. Easier said then done, right?  Well, as Taylor explains in a newly released outtake from the song's video, even she doesn't feel cool, and she's a massive superstar. "A lot of people who I think will relate to the song are people who are dealing with not ever really feeling cool with themselves because other people make them feel like they don't fit in," Taylor says.  "When, one thing I've learned in this whole process…

Speaking with Time magazine, Ariana says, "I...think that people have a misrepresentation of me as a person because I’m friendly and I like to meet people and I like to talk to people and make people laugh. Sometimes people can confuse my niceness for weakness in a way -- or ditziness or stupidity. But it doesn’t go hand-in-hand in that way." "When…

American Authors Want Ryan Tedder's Songs, Not His Steaks

American Authors spent the summer opening for OneRepublic and The Script on tour.  The band says while they would've loved to have had OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder write them a hit song, they had to content themselves with him offering them hunks of meat.

It's cool, y'know, 'cause he's a good cook. He's really good at grilling up steaks and burgers and brats and whatnot." Sounds great, right? …
