Simon EmmettAdele is set to take the stage at England’s legendary Glastonbury festival tonight. While the festival is known for being muddy, the singer will be keeping things glam thanks to thorough preparations from her beauty squad.
Her makeup artist, Michael Ashton, posted a photo on Instagram Friday of four huge suitcases in the back of a van. “Just a few essentials packed for Glastonbury,” he captioned it.
We doubt the bags are all filled with Adele’s makeup, but anything’s possible.
Adele is headlining the festival for the first time in her career. She’ll be performing on the famed Pyramid Stage tonight.
According to U.K.’s The Mirror, her partner Simon Konecki was already walking the Glastonbury grounds Thursday. "It was amusing to see fans walking past him singing Adele's ‘Hello’,” one witness says. “He was beaming.”
Don Le StudioMike Posner heads back to his hometown of Detroit in the video for the remix of his inspiring new song, “Be As You Are.”
In the clip, shot like a mini-film, Mike plays the mentor of a young boy training to be a boxer. But he finds out what the boy really wants is to be a dancer. In the end, the kid -- played by Will Simmons -- shows off some of his dance moves inside the ring.
Mike tells Billboard the song is “among the most honest songs I have written,” adding, “I was just trying to tell the truth.”
The single follows his hit song, "I Took a Pill in Ibiza."
Getty Images via ABCShawn Mendes wants you to know that he’s not gay -- not that there’s anything wrong with that. After commenters on YouTube began speculating about his sexuality, the 17-year-old singer took to Snapchat to set the record straight.
"So I don't usually do this and bring up problems, but I was on YouTube just watching some of my interviews, and I was going down the comments and noticed a lot of people were saying that I gave them a 'gay vibe,'” he says. “First of all, I'm not gay,"
He adds, "Second of all, it shouldn't make a difference if I was or if I wasn't. The focus should be on the music and not my sexuality."
Shawn goes on to clarify that he’s not frustrated that people think he’s gay, he’s frustrated because some people are saying it like it’s a bad thing. "I just want you guys -- before you judge someone on the way they speak or act -- I want you guys to think, 'Hey, maybe I shouldn't be judging someone' or 'Wait, it actually doesn't even matter. They can do or be or feel however they want to feel,'" he says.
Sasha SamsonovaAside from their world tour, Fifth Harmony has another headlining gig lined up for this summer. The girl group will be performing at VH1's third annual Save the Music benefit concert, Billboard reports.
The event aims to raise funds for VH1 Save the Music, which brings music education to many schools across America. It’ll take place at a private residence in the Hamptons, Long Island, on Saturday, August 27.
Fifth Harmony kicks off the North American leg of their tour on July 27.
Photo by David Becker/Getty ImagesEver since singer Christina Grimmie was shot by an obsessed fan while signing autographs, Meghan Trainor admits that she's been afraid of the same thing happening to her.
Speaking to the New York Post, Meghan revealed, "The two days following [Grimmie’s murder] I was like, ‘I’m not going out to see fans, I’m too afraid now.'" She also says she's planning to step up her security -- unlike some singers, she doesn't travel with a bodyguard constantly by her side.
"I’m not that artist yet, I don’t have security with me all the time, I don’t have ‘my guy,’" she told the Post. "I asked my team, ‘Should I be getting a guy? Should I have someone?’ I go out all the time without security, and you just never know. You have no idea who’s out there obsessed with you to the point that they would do something like that.”
Thankfully, Meghan says her fears have subsided somewhat. "I did go out recently and sign [autographs] for some fans . . . and I do feel better about this,” she explained. "I do need to be careful, but I can still do this. I don’t have to be afraid of the world. That’s my biggest fear on top of that, to be afraid to go outside.”
That's a good thing, since Meghan will be outside a lot this summer: her Untouchable tour starts July 14.
Chán AndreDaya is set to make her acting debut. According to Billboard, the singer will appear on the Nickelodeon series School of Rock -- a reboot of the 2003 Jack Black film of the same name.
"It was so much fun to work with the cast on School of Rock," she says in a statement provided to Billboard. “I was a little nervous because it was my first acting gig, but it was such a great experience. We had so much fun on set and I can't wait for people to see the final episode!"
She’ll be playing herself in the episode, entitled “I Put a Spell on You.” She’ll be one of the judges on an American Idol-type singing competition that two of the main characters try out for. The episode will premiere this fall.
ABC/Fred LeeTry as she might, it seems Sia can’t always keep her face hidden. An unexpected gust of wind exposed the singer’s elusive features during a performance in Colorado this week.
The breeze blew aside Sia’s signature face-covering wig at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, allowing just enough time for cameras to snap some photos.
She’s previously explained why she chooses to hide her appearance. "I don't want to be famous or recognizable," she told ABC News' Chris Connelly in 2014. "I don't want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet. I've been writing pop songs for pop stars for a couple years and see what their lives are like, and that's just not something I want."
Of course, if you're really curious about what Sia looks like, there are plenty of photos of her online where her smiling face isn't covered.
ABC/Ida Mae AstuteThe moment we’ve all been waiting for is here: Kelly Clarkson big announcement! After a week of build-up on Facebook Live, the singer revealed the news she’s been teasing.
If you haven't guessed it already, she’s officially joined Atlantic Records. All of the artists she covered this week -- including Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding -- were Atlantic artists. Kelly’s American Idol record contract with RCA ended after the release of 2015’s Piece by Piece, and this marks the first time in her career that she was able to choose her own record label.
In addition, Kelly announced that her first release with Atlantic will be a soulful album coming in 2017.
She then performed another soul-tinged cover, of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me,” before coming back with even more news. Kelly has also launched a brand-new website for her fans, KellyClarksonLive.com. Four free downloads of some of her fan-requested covers are available on the site now, and she’ll post new goodies for fans the last Friday of every month.
So really, her big announcement was actually a few big announcements. Cheers, Kelly!
Josiah Kamau/BuzzFoto via Getty ImagesTaylorSwift's ex Calvin Harris, has broken his silence about their breakup, claiming Taylor "controlled the media" and now he's "free."
Harris was responding to comments on his Instagram page. They've since been deleted, but not before fans were able to capture them on screengrabs, according to E! Online.
After one fan wrote that people wouldn't have hated Calvin if he'd his side of the story, Harris replied, "[Taylor] controlled the media and this situation, I had no idea what was going on. So that kind of makes it a lot worse from my perspective."
Another fan argued Harris was "jealous of Taylor now because she's moved on and found a new boyfriend," to which Harris allegedly answered, "not jealous sir, FREE."
When users questioned why Harris took to the comments section to discuss such a hot topic, he replied, "because I want to understand how these people's minds work."
When another poster asked if the producer's account was hacked, he declared, "No it's me."
Despite dissing Swift, Harris still maintained he doesn't hate the music superstar. In response to why the DJ decided to follow Taylor after unfollowing her immediately following the split, he responded, "I cared too much and then I didn't care at all. I am a real person remember."
One user who was arguing with another fan wrote, "For all we know Taylor broke up with him to be with another man and that is quite upsetting. I would be hurt by that too. He's not being mean. He deserves to feel free while he's single and not feel jealous."
Calvin acknowledged that person in a comment, noting, "You're the only smart one at this point."
Taylor split from Harris less than a month ago. She's since been spotted getting cozy with Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston.
PRNewsFoto/Live Nation EntertainmentIt's been in the works for months, but Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato's Future Now tour, sponsored by Honda Civic, finally kicks off tonight in Sunrise, Florida. Demi says that the joint trek is a way to "show everyone the true sides of our artistry."
The fact that Nick and Demi are touring together shouldn't surprise anyone, considering the fact that they're longtime friends, have the same management and are in business together, too.
"If I had a twin brother, it would be Nick, because we're so in tune with one another artistically, and...we work really well together," Demi tells ABC Radio.
"I think we speak the same language artistically because of our songwriting past and history," Nick tells ABC Radio. "[I've been] grateful to have a solid friendship throughout what's been a pretty crazy ride for both of us."
During the tour, Nick will play material from both his recent solo albums, and maybe even some Jonas Brothers tunes. Demi says she admires Nick for building a successful solo career apart from his brothers.
"The fact that he gets on the stage now by himself, it must have been difficult," she says. "You've had the Jonas Brothers next to you and now you carry the show by yourself...as a solo artist, I know what that's like. [And] I'm really proud of him for being able to make that transition."
Nick says he's equally proud of Demi. "One of the things that I admire about her...is that she's one of the most talented songwriters I know," he says.
In addition to celebrating what Nick calls their "great and genuine friendship," Demi says the tour is a chance for the ex-Disney stars to focus attention on their current careers.
"A lot of people know that we've worked together for almost ten years now," Demi tells ABC Radio. "But what's important is the moment that we're living in now and what we have to look forward to in the future. So with this tour, we're excited to show everyone the true sides of our artistry."
Adds Nick, "I'm excited to get out there and just have a great, great time together."
ABC/Lou Rocco; ABC/Randy HolmesThings seems to be moving swiftly for Hiddleswift. After hitting up a Selena Gomez concert on Tuesday, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston were spotted enjoying a romantic meal in Nashville Wednesday night.
According to E! News, the new couple dined at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in a small, private area of the restaurant. One witness said the two “seemed very comfortable with each other.”
Taylor and Tom left the restaurant holding hands and they were driven away by security.
Last month, the two were spotted dancing at the Met Gala together. Then last week, shortly after Taylor’s breakup with Calvin Harris, they were photographed kissing.
Vivian Zink/NBCOne Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and Ne-Yo will be serving as guest judges on the next season of America’s Got Talent.
The NBC competition show will premiere its eleventh season on Tuesday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. It’ll air twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, for the remainder of the season. Other guest judges will include comedian George Lopez and country singer Reba McEntire.

Capitol Music GroupAfter releasing her own song called “Wild Things,” Alessia Cara can’t seem to let go of that “wild” feeling. The singer joins Troye Sivan on a new version of his song “WILD.”
The song initially appeared as a solo tune on Troye’s debut album Blue Neighbourhood, but now it gets the duet treatment with a new verse written by Alessia.
Ahead of the song’s release, Troye tweeted his excitement in all caps: “GUYS I CANT WAIT FOR YOU TO HEAR WILD ALESSIA WROTE THE BEST VERSE AND SOUNDS SO GOOD N WE LIKE SPED IT UP SLIGHTLY MY HANDS ARE SWEATING.”
A video for the song will be released soon.
Troye will kick off the second North American leg of his Suburbia Tour on October 16 in San Francisco.
Ben WattsEver wished you could sing karaoke with Rob Thomas? Now you can -- sort of. The singer is bringing a new karaoke experience on tour with him, which allows fans to sing with his hologram.
As part of his summer tour’s VIP package, fans can select one of three songs to perform as a hologram duet with Rob’s virtual likeness. After the performance is done, each fan will receive a video of it to share on social media.
"Futuristic Karaoke! I always love to experiment with new technology and this is like nothing I've ever seen before,” Rob says in a statement. “It’s going to be very cool and I’m excited for the fans to check it out.”
Rob teamed up with social augmented reality company VNTANA for the project. His tour with Counting Crows kicks off July 22 in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Wearing their sexiest bathing suits, the girls dance by the ocean and roll around on the sand as they sing the tune’s suggestive lyrics: “Flex, time to impress/Come and climb in my bed/Don’t be shy, do your thing/It’s all my head.”
They’re joined by a jeep-full of hot guys with six-pack abs.
Fifth Harmony kicked off their 7/27 world tour last night in Lima, Peru. Their North American leg kicks off July 27.
ABC/ Ida Mae AstuteOne more day until Kelly Clarkson makes her much-anticipated announcement. But before she finally fills us in, she gave us one more cover song on Facebook Live.
On day four of her lead-up to the big reveal, Kelly sang “Crazy” by Gnarls Barkley. She previously hinted that all of the artists she covers this week have something in common that relates to her news.
Considering she also sang songs by Otis Redding, Foreigner and Aretha Franklin -- all artists who released music on Atlantic Records -- could that mean Kelly has a new record deal? It’s entirely possible, given that 2015’s Piece by Piece was her last studio album under her American Idol recording contract with RCA and 19 Recordings.
Her pianist has so far confirmed the announcement is "not a soundtrack" and Kelly is "not running for president." She's also not pregnant, not releasing a live DVD, not going on tour and not doing a Broadway show.
RCA RecordsFall Out Boy ain't afraid of no ghost. The pop-punks have rerecorded Ray Parker, Jr.'s iconic Ghostbusters theme song from 1984, with an assist from rapper Missy Elliott. You can listen to the cover, dubbed "Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)," now on YouTube.
"Ghostbusters (I'm Not Afraid)" appears on the soundtrack for the upcoming new Ghostbusters movie, starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristin Wiig. The soundtrack also includes contributions from Elle King, WALK THE MOON, Wolf Alice, Pentatonix and 5 Seconds of Summer.
Ghostbusters will hit theaters July 15. The soundtrack will be released the same day.
