Demi Lovato Promises New Music is Coming ‘Very Soon’


Although fans still aren’t done telling her they love her, Demi Lovato has new tunes brewing. The «Sorry Not Sorry» singer revealed on Twitter early Monday (May 29) that the next taste of her to-be-announced seventh studio album could arrive shortly.

In a brief Q&A, a fan asked Lovato if she was finished releasing singles from Tell Me You Love Me. «Pretty much,» Lovato answered. «I have so much new music to release very VERY soon!!!»

«So no third single?» Another fan questioned, presumably wanting more than just «Sorry Not Sorry» and the album’s title track. «Give us a third single and then move on.» To which Lovato replied simply: «Nope.»

Even with her recent smash collaborations with Luis Fonsi, Clean Bandit and Christina Aguilera, Lovato hinted that even more new singles from her are on the horizon.

«Very VERY soon…. could be a matter of weeks actually,» Lovato continued.

Cardi B Just Realized Childish Gambino & Donald Glover Are the Same Person

The confusion over whether rapper Childish Gambino and actor/comedian Donald Glover are two different people continues, this time baffling Cardi B.

Last week, in a now-deleted tweet, the Invasion of Privacy rapper seemingly made an astute observation before quickly realizing she was incorrect.


«It’s amazing how Donald Glover and Childish Gambino look soo much alike. I think they secretly the same person!!! Soo dope!!’» Cardi wrote Thursday (May 24).

A few minutes later, she added, «Wait, I’m confuse now.»

It’s uncertain whether Cardi was making a joke or being serious. Either way, her comments about Gambino and Glover — who are the same person, for the record — inspired some of her social media followers to share their own experiences with the matter.

«The movie hasn’t started yet but there’s no way any part of Solo is going to be better than the guy LOSING HIS MIND outside the theater realizing Childish Gambino and Donald Glover are the same person,» one Twitter user wrote, referencing Glover’s role as Lando Calrissian in the latest Star Wars film, Solo.

And Cardi, just so you know, Donald Glover isn’t the son of veteran Lethal Weaponactor Danny Glover.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in Congratulates BTS on First No. 1 Album


South Korean President Moon Jae-in took a few minutes out of his very busy schedule to congratulate K-pop phenomenon BTS on the group’s first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

On Monday (May 28), about two days after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at a surprise summit to discuss peace, President Moon shared his excitement about BTS’ exciting accomplishment.

«Congratulations to the Seven Music-loving Boys and Their Wings, ‘ARMY’!» Moon wrote in a statement. «The songs, dance, dreams and enthusiasm of BTS energized and gave strength to young people around the world.»

BTS recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with its latest effort, Love Yourself: Tear. It’s the first No. 1 for the seven-member group, and the first K-pop album to lead the tally.

Read Presient Moon’s full statement below.

«Congratulations to the Seven Music-loving Boys and Their Wings, ‘ARMY’!
The songs, dance, dreams and enthusiasm of BTS 방탄소년단 energized and gave strength to young people around the world. I congratulate BTS on topping the Billboard 200 with their album titled ‘Love Yourself 轉 Tear’. This is the first ever Korean album to claim the top spot, and also the first non-English album to do so in 12 years.
At the very heart of BTS’s outstanding dancing and singing is sincerity. This magical power turns grief into hope and differences into similarity. Each of the seven members sings in a way that is true to himself and the life he wants to live. Their melody and lyrics transcend regional borders, language, culture, and institutions.
Bangtan, which literally means bulletproof in Korean, was born out of the will to protect teenagers from prejudice and oppression. The names of each member—Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook—are going to be remembered for a long time. Thank you to BTS for spreading joy across Korea and the world with your great performances.»

The 7 Most Risque Lyrics From Shawn Mendes’ Self-Titled Album


Well, Shawn Mendes has — gasp! — grown up a bit, and he’s no longer the squeaky clean 16-year-old who serenaded his way into listeners’ hearts with the G-rated heartbreak bop, «Stitches,» back in 2015. Over three years later, Mendes’ self-titled third studio album, out Friday (May 25), takes a major step up in maturity both sonically and with the inclusion of some slightly suggestive lyrics.

Don’t worry about Mendes tarnishing his sugary sweet image, though. Gentlemanly as always, he still keeps it classy on LP3, which also includes his most vulnerable and politically-driven tunes to date.

However, at 19, we think it’s only natural for some of his content to get a little sexually implicit when the time is right, employing multiple allusions to risque nights. Here are seven instances of eyebrow-raising lyrics to be heard on Shawn Mendes.


«You got me acting like I never done this before
I promise I’ll be ready when I walk through the door»

«Where Were You In the Morning?»

«And I hope you had a good reason
​Cause I know you had a good time
And yeah I’m looking up at the ceiling
And I keep wondering why»

«Fallin’ All in You»

«Sunrise with you on my chest
No blinds in the place where I live
Daybreak open your eyes
Cause this was only ever meant to be for one night, still»

«Particular Taste»

«But oohh she’s so specific when she’s at my place
At my place she’s got particular taste
Yeah, she’s so obsessed with the chase
Yeah, she don’t waste time on conversations
No, she just goes right for the face yeah»

«Lost In Japan»

«I’m a couple hundred miles from Japan tonight
And I was thinking I could fly to your hotel tonight
‘Cause I can’t get you off my mind»

«Where Were You In the Morning?»

«You said I wanna get to know you
Why you gotta get my hopes up
You said that you were staying over
But then I woke up to the cold air»

«Fallin’ All in You»

«Fast forward a couple years, yea
Grown up in the place that we live
Make love then we fight
Laugh cause it was only meant to be for one night, baby»
