Jessie J asks her fans for help getting up due to a miscarriage


Singer Jessie J has suffered a miscarriage but told fans she will still perform a day after finding out the news.

In an emotional Instagram post, she shared a picture of a positive pregnancy test and a quote from poet Seyda Noir, and tagged her location as «heartbroken».

In the lengthy caption, she wrote: «Yesterday morning I was laughing with a friend saying ‘seriously though how am I going to get through my gig in LA tomorrow night without telling the whole audience I am pregnant’.

«By yesterday afternoon I was dreading the thought of getting through the gig without breaking down.

She said she had gone for her third scan, only to be told there was no heartbeat.

The Bang Bang singer said: «I decided to have a baby on my own.

«Because it’s all I’ve ever wanted and life is short. To get pregnant was a miracle in itself and an experience I will never forget and I know I will have again.»

Jessie has previously opened up about her fertility struggles and revealed during a 2018 concert doctors had told her at the age of 26 she might never be able to have children.

However, she confirmed she would still perform her LA show, and said her «soul needs it».

She wrote: «I started singing when I was young for joy, to fill my soul and self love therapy, that hasn’t ever changed and I have to process this my way.

«I want to be honest and true and not hide what I’m feeling. I deserve that. I want to be as myself as I can be in this moment. Not just for the audience but for myself and my little baby that did its best.

She added: «I know myself and I know I would talk about it on stage because that’s who I am. So instead of a tearful emotional speech trying to explain my energy. This feels safer.

«I’m still in shock, the sadness is overwhelming. But I know I am strong, and I know I will be ok.

«I also know millions of women all over the world have felt this pain and way worse. I feel connected to those of you I know and those of you I don’t.

Everything You Need to Know About Adele’s New Album, 30.


It’s time to emotionally prepare for the return of Adele.

After weeks of hinting to fans across the globe by way of cryptic projections of the number 30, Adele has confirmed that new music is just around the corner. The 15-time Grammy winner released her first single off her fourth studio album Thursday. With «Easy on Me,» fans have waited with bated breath to hear the star’s first song in more than six years.

Below, we answer all your questions about the superstar’s new musical era.

What is the album about?

During an Instagram Live session with her fans, Adele was asked about the subject matter of her upcoming project. She promptly replied, «Divorce babe, divorce.» You might remember that the singer finalized her divorce from her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, back in January.

When is 30 releasing?

With a moving message about how meaningful the project has become to her, the singer confirmed on social media that her fourth studio album will release on November 19.

Are there any collaborations on the album?

Maintaining consistency with her past projects, Adele’s new album features no collaborators, the singer has confirmed.

A television special and interview with Oprah Winfrey are also happening.

According to Variety

The «Easy on Me» music video officially premiered on YouTube.

The «Easy on Me» music video officially premiered on YouTube in tandem with the single’s drop at 7 p.m. ET on October 14—and it’s just as tear-jerking and moving as we imagined.

Featuring vintage-inspired cinematography, the video shows Adele singing about forgiveness over her innocent past mistakes as she reflects back on a failed relationship. The mood is somber and nostalgic, and all too cathartic.

Watch the video in full below.

, a televised special titled Adele One Night Only will air on CBS five days ahead of the release of her new album, 30.

Set for Sunday, November 14, at 8:30 p.m. ET, the special will be filmed in Los Angeles, with the singer performing new songs from her upcoming project, as well as some of her greatest hits.

Adele will also sit down with media icon Oprah Winfrey «from her rose garden,» where the singer will discuss «her new album, the stories behind the songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son.»

Adele released the official tracklist.

According to Variety, the tracklist for 30 is as follows:

1. Strangers by Nature
2. Easy on Me
3. My Little Love
4. Cry Your Heart Out
5. Oh My God
6. Can I Get It

11. To Be Loved
12. Love Is a Game

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes Split After 2 Years of Dating


It’s over. Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes have ended their two-year romance.

Celebrity Splits of 2021: Stars Who Broke Up This Year

“Hey guys, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever,” the pair wrote in a joint statement shared to their respective Instagram Stories on Wednesday, November 17. “We started our relationship as best friends and will continue to be best friends. We so appreciate your support from the beginning and moving forward. Camila and Shawn.”

The singer, 24, started dating Mendes, 23, in July 2019 following her split from Matthew Hussey. The Cuba native explained to Elle three months later that she kept their relationship private “to protect it.”

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Relationship Timeline

The X Factor alum said in October 2019: “I don’t know; people can say whatever they want. They can speculate, but at the same time, we are going to live our own lives, enjoy it and fall for each other like nobody is watching. That is how I want to live. I never want to open the door for people to feel like they are involved. Like I said, I want it to be mine and [his]. That’s why I’m so tight-lippedabout it.”

She quarantined with the “Treat You Better” singer amid the coronavirus pandemic the following year, writing via Instagram in November 2020 that she “learned about love” dating Mendes.

“It’s not just the happy blissful moments you see in pictures and videos — when you’re in a relationship with someone, it feels like they are this mirror reflecting yourself back to you,” the “Havana” singer captioned a PDA pic at the time. “I constantly have to confront my fears, my anxieties, my insecurities, my patterns of thinking, my beliefs about life and about myself. It’s not as simple as it looks in pictures sometimes. Sometimes, it’s messy and uncomfortable and ugly lol. But there’s nothing like the pull, the FORCE that is love, to be the light in the darkness — to be the gravitational pull that gives you the relentless strength to be braver, wiser and better than you were yesterday.”

The following month, the Canada native told Entertainment Tonight that he was “absolutely” thinking about proposing to Cabello. “I think for me it’s always been if I’m not willing to talk about that stuff then I kind of check out a little bit, and I don’t know, I really think when you know, you know,” he explained in the December 2020 interview.

Adele and Oprah discuss divorce and weight loss.


Adele was embarrassed by her divorce

«I’ve been obsessed with a nuclear family my whole life because I never came from one,» said the singer, whose father left home when she was just two years old.

«From a very young age [I] promised myself that, when I had kids, we’d stay together. And I tried for a really, really long time.»

Now 33, Adele said she first realised her marriage was crumbling when she took a personality test in a glossy magazine.

One of the questions asked, «what’s something that no-one would ever know about you?», and she blurted out to her friends: «I’m really not happy. I’m not living, I’m just plodding along.»

«They all gasped,» she recalled. «From there, I was like ‘What am I doing? What am I doing it for?'»

Although Adele was together with Konecki for eight years, she has previously said the marriage and separation both took place in 2018.

«I take marriage very seriously… and it seems like I don’t now,» she said, remorsefully. «Almost like I disrespected it by getting married and then divorced so quickly. I’m embarrassed because it was so quick.»

Lindsay Lohan to Return to Acting by Starring in Netflix Christmas Romantic Comedy


Lindsay Lohan, who has largely foregone acting in recent years, will soon star in a yet-to-be-titled Netflix holiday rom-com. The streamer has made a robust business out of Christmas fare, and its original movies such as “Jingle Jangle,” “A Christmas Prince,” “The Christmas Chronicles” and “The Princess Switch” (inspired by Lohan’s “The Parent Trap”) have become instant (and repeatable) holiday classics.

In this new movie, Lohan will play a “newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress” (according to the logline), who gets amnesia after a skiing accident and “finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.” The rest of the cast has not yet been announced.

Lohan skyrocketed to fame as an 11-year-old actor, starring in a 1998 reboot of “The Parent Trap.” She followed that with a remake of “Freaky Friday” and “Mean Girls”; both roles cemented her status as an A-list star. After years of being hounded by paparazzi and the tabloids because of personal issues — ones that made her uninsurable for a time because of her chronic absences  — Lohan withdrew from acting by degrees, starting in the early 2010s. She eventually moved abroad, living in both Europe and Dubai.

She’s launched projects sporadically since, such as being the only good thing in Paul Schrader’s 2013 movie, “The Canyons”; appearing in a West End production of “Speed-the-Plow” in 2014; recurring on the British TV comedy “Sick Note” in 2018; starring in the MTV reality show “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” in 2019; and later that year, appearing as a judge on the Australian version of “The Masked Singer.”

On CNN’s New Year’s Eve special in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic would press pause on the world, Lohan told hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen that she wanted to “come back to America and start filming again,” and “taking back the life that I worked so hard for, and sharing it with my family and you guys.”

The Netflix movie starts production in November, so it won’t be for 2021 holiday viewing — audiences will receive this Yuletide present at a time to be announced later.

Janeen Damian (Hallmark Channel’s “A Christmas Waltz”) will direct, and it was written by Damian, Michael Damian, Jeff Bonnett and Ron Oliver. Its producers are MPCA’s Brad Krevoy and Riviera Films’ Michael Damian. MPCA is behind such Netflix Christmas movies as the “A Christmas Prince” franchise, “Operation Christmas Drop” and the forthcoming “A Castle for Christmas.” (And fun fact: Michael Damian was a longtime star of the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” and in 1989, had a No. 1 single: “Rock On,” from the “Dream a Little Dream” soundtrack.”)

Executive producers for Lohan’s Netflix movie are Amanda Phillips and Eric Jarboe.

Britney Spears is free


Nearly 14 years after losing power over her personal affairs and multimillion-dollar fortune, Britney Spears is finally getting her life back.

On Friday, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny terminated Spears’ conservatorship effective immediately, freeing the 39-year-old pop star from the legal binds that allowed her dad and his team to make decisions about her work, who she could have contact with, and how to spend her money since 2008. Now, Spears can live on her own terms.

«The time has come after more than a decade for the conservatorship to be terminated in its entirety,» Spears’ attorney Mathew Rosengart told the court.

The ruling marks the end of what she has described as a «demoralizing» and traumatizing chapter of her life. And while the #FreeBritney fan movement and increased scrutiny from news outlets certainly hastened what we now know was a yearslong fight to regain control, it was Spears’ own voice that brought matters to a head four and a half months ago when she told the court — and the world — that her conservatorship was «abusive» and she wanted out.

«I just want my life back,» Spears said during a virtual court appearance on June 23. «It’s been 13 years. And it’s enough.»

Shortly after Friday’s hearing, Spears thanked her fans in a tweet with the hashtag #FreedBritney.

«Good God I love my fans so much it’s crazy 🥺❤️ !!! I think I’m gonna cry the rest of the day !!!!,» she tweeted. «Best day ever … praise the Lord … can I get an Amen 🙏🏼☀️🙌🏼 ????» And in a follow up Instagram post, she posted a photo of her in a bright yellow dress with the caption: «I can’t freaking believe it !!!! Again … best day ever !!!!»

Bruno Mars y Anderson Paak lanzan ‘A evening with Silk Sonic’, su nuevo disco


Ha llegado el gran día que todos los seguidores de Bruno Mars han estado esperando. Mucho tiempo ha pasado desde que en el año 2016 el artista lanzase al mundo el que sería su último proyecto discográfico durante unos cuantos años, ’24k Magic’. Un trabajo con el que volvió a escribir su nombre una vez más en lo más alto de los charts musicales a nivel mundial, objetivo que pretende repetir, ahora, con ‘A evening with Silk Sonic’.

La espera ha terminado y por fin, tras varios meses en los que Mars y su banda han ido presentando al mundo pequeñas perlas musicales de lo que se vendría con su nuevo disco, ‘A evening with Silk Sonic’ ya está disponible en todas las plataformas de streaming y en formato físico.Una nueva era musical con un sonido diferente a lo que el intérprete tiene acostumbrado a su público, pero donde la esencia de Bruno Mars sigue inconfundible en todas y cada unas de las canciones.

Se trata de un nuevo trabajo que cuenta en su tracklist con un total de 9 canciones que conquistan desde la primera reproducción. Una composición que da el pistoletazo de salida con el tema ‘Silk Sonic Intro’ y que culmina como broche de oro con el sencillo ‘Blast Off’.

Asimismo, como no podía ser de otra manera, en esta nueva producción se encuentran los adelantos musicales que Bruno Mars ha ido estrenando durante las últimas semanas, ‘Leave the door open’, ‘Skate’ y ‘Smokin out the window’, siendo este último sencillo lanzado hace tan solo una semana y manteniéndose como una de los videoclips más vistos del momento en Youtube.

El estreno del disco ha sido recibido con los brazos abiertos por los fans, demostrando nuevamente las ganas que tenían de poder disfrutar de un álbum completo de Bruno y su banda. Un nuevo trabajo que fue creado en tiempos de pandemia mundial y con el que Bruno Mars y Anderson Paak han dejado claro que la espera ha merecido la pena.




Adele has given a preview of ‘Hold On’, another new track from her upcoming album ‘30’, in Amazon’s Christmas advert.

The ad, which premiered today (November 8), is soundtracked by the gentle piano-led ballad.

I swear to god I’m such a mess / The harder that I try, I regress,” Adele sings on the track, adding later: “Right now, I truly hate being me.”

Let time be patient / Let pain be gracious / Just hold on, just hold on / I will survive,” the pop star sighs towards the song’s end.

The commercial shares a message about anxiety, showing a woman sending a young girl who lives next door to her a present to help her with her struggles. “Kindness. The greatest gift,” reads the screen as the ad ends.

‘Hold On’ marks the second piece of new music from Adele that has been revealed in the lead-up to ‘30’’s release, following the October single ‘Easy On Me’. Last week, the star shared a blooper version of the latter’s video. “It’s all smoke and mirrors!” she wrote, captioning a post of the outtakes on social media.

Meanwhile, Adele will celebrate her new album with a UK TV special called An Audience With Adele on November 21. The singer will showcase material from the record along with some of her classic hits at the London Palladium. The show will be broadcast on ITV.

Ahead of that, the musician will perform on a two-hour US TV special, Adele: One Night Only, and be interviewed by Oprah Winfrey. That programme will air on CBS on November 14.

Fans will be able to see the megastar back on stage in the UK next summer when she performs two huge shows at London’s Hyde Park. Tickets for the gigs, which will be her first UK headline dates since 2017, have now sold out.
