Big Machine RecordsThe year may be only half over, but Taylor Swift is already dominating 2015’s record sales. According to the 2015 Nielsen Music U.S. Mid-Year Report, her album 1989 is the best-selling album of the year so far. The album, which has spawned hits like “Style” and “Bad Blood,” has sold more than 1.3 million copies just in the first six months of 2015.  With album-equivalent individual song sales and on-demand streaming factored in, that total jumps to more than 2 million according to Nielsen.

Sam Smith trailed his pal Taylor at number three on the list when it comes to pure sales. His In the Lonely Hour sold 788,000 copies and nearly 1.3 million when song sales and streams are added in. Ed Sheeran’s X [Multiply] and the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack tied with 763,000 copies sold, coming in at numbers four and five on the sales list, but Ed's number three on the sales plus streams list with 1.42 million; and Fifty Shades of Grey is just behind with a little more than 1.4 million in sales, track sales and streams.

Meghan Trainor, who was just forced to postpone her M Train tour due to a vocal cord hemorrhage, has the sixth best-selling album of the year so far. Title sold 727,000 copies; its also sixth best with digital sales and streams factored in at more than 1.2 million units.

As for individual digital song sales, “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars took the top spot, with more than 4.8 million digital downloads. Ed’s “Thinking Out Loud” was second place, “See You Again” by Wiz Khalida and Charlie Puth was number three, “Sugar” by Maroon 5 took the number four spot, and “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding rounded out the top 5.

ABC/Adam TaylorMeghan Trainor was all set to kick off her second-ever tour, the M Train tour, today in Atlantic City, but things hit a last minute snag. The singer regrettably announced on Instagram last night that she’s been forced to postpone the first two shows of her tour due to a hemorrhage on her vocal cords. 

“Right now the doctors want me on complete vocal rest until they are healed so I have to postpone my first two shows in Atlantic City and Connecticut,” she writes. “I promise that I will make it up to my Megatronz.”

She adds, “I love you all very much and want to get healed quickly so I can show you this amazing tour we’ve been working on. I am truly sorry to everyone who has bought tickets and made travel plans. I hate this.”

Meghan also posted an Instagram video of herself holding up messages on her phone. She writes that she’s in New York seeing another doctor. 

“So frustrated but cant make any noise,” she captions the video. “At least I got my brother @ryan.trainor to make me smile. And my fans supporting me. thank you for your kind words.”

Once she’s healed, she’ll be hitting the road with renewed enthusiasm. Before the unfortunate vocal issues, she told ABC Radio she was feeling confident about this tour.

"I'll have some practice under my belt," she laughed, "I can say I've done this before. I know what to expect. But I'm trying to add more songs...get complete new outfits, trying to change the look up, so that you'll know from pictures, 'Oh, this is the second tour.'"

"I'm really excited though," she added. "We get to go in bigger places and meet more fans around the U.S. So it's gonna be great."

As for how Meghan thinks she's improved as a performer since that first tour, she told ABC Radio, "I get less nervous, for sure, 'cause I'm like, 'You've done this. You know what to do!'  But I've been performing since I was young -- 12, 13 -- and still, I'll get a little nervous every time."

"But...I've gotten out of my shell, dancing-wise especially," she added. "I never dance in front of people, and now I literally do body rolls in front of thousands of people! It's great. I'm learning still, every day."

Meghan's opening act -- her friend and duet partner, Charlie Puth -- said of the tour, "I think we’ll sing a couple of things together."  But in terms of his own opening set, he told ABC Radio, "You can expect from me just, like, soulful, fun, danceable music that people can all just universally relate to, I hope."

"I’m just really excited to perform these records for her fans that have kind of taken me on," Charlie said of getting in front of Meghan's devoted followers. "They’re called the Megatronz and my fans they call themselves the Puthers, so there’s gonna be Puthers and Megatronz. Such a weird sentence. I never thought in 2015 that I would say such a sentence like that!"

Both Meghan and Charlie were planning to spend the Fourth of July playing the second date of the tour, but it seems like those plans were not meant to be.

Brian Bowen Smith/NBCYou might not want to invite Christina Aguilera on your next humanitarian mission. According to a new expose published in U.K.’s The Guardian, the singer left a bad impression on aid workers during a trip to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. The testimony, written by an anonymous aid worker, claims that Christina had a cocktail reception at the UN base.

“In Haiti, in the UN base where most of the first responders lived, one agency outraged the entire base by taking over the only air conditioned tent -- in which some slept due to the sauna-like conditions in the accommodation area -- to host a cocktail reception for Christina Aguilera,” the aid worker writes.

The worker adds that the tent was then treated like an exclusive club, complete with rude bouncers. “I vividly remember a colleague, in boxers and a T-shirt, arguing vociferously with her bouncers, who told him that not only was he not allowed in, but he was inappropriately dressed for the local culture,” the worker says. “The irony of telling off someone for not wearing enough clothes when your day job is guarding a woman whose career was largely built on not wearing enough clothes was apparently lost on them.”

Not all celebrities were nightmares, though. Angelina Jolie was praised in the article for educating herself on the countries she visits.

Sara McColgan/Warner Bros. RecordsThe new Nico & Vinz music video will make you want to back your bags and head to a tropical island.

The visual for the Norwegian duo’s feel-good song, “Fresh Idea,” was filmed in Kauai, Hawaii -- a setting that captures the tune’s carefree vibe. With a gorgeous beach as their backdrop, Nico & Vinz sing: “Just breathe/You’re free/Open your eyes to the moment and taste possibility.”

The video is also part of Nestea’s “A Taste of Freedom” campaign. Both the song and the campaign share a similar message of letting go of your worries and enjoying life.  

Nico & Vinz are set to perform tomorrow at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

Rihanna seeks revenge in the dark and violent video for “B***h Better Have My Money.”

In the cinematic clip, which she co-directed with Megaforce, the singer kidnaps a rich white lady inside an elevator and stuffs her into a vintage Goyard trunk. With the help of Rihanna's two henchman, they drive off into the dessert with the topless woman.

Rihanna seems to have mapped out a getaway plan, which includes chartering a ship and hiding out in a cheap motel room with the blonde hostage. However, it turns out Rihanna had a bone to pick with the hostage's husband, an accountant who embezzled her money and spent it recklessly on strippers and alcohol. After catching him, Rihanna goes for blood as she ties him up and then takes her time picking a deadly weapon from large selection of knives.

In the end, a naked Rihanna wakes up the covered in blood while laying in the suitcase full of her stolen money.

Prior to releasing the visual, Rihanna spilled via Instagram that she's been patiently waiting to deliver the video for a while. "Ya girl got director skillz!!! The concept for this piece came to me 8 months ago!!! So you can imagine how anxious I am right now!!!" she wrote.

The song appears on her long-awaited album, tentatively titled R8, which is due out later this year.

Safehouse Records/Hollywood RecordsDemi Lovato has hit back against critics who are saying her new song, “Cool for the Summer,” rips off Katy Perry and Jessie J.

After she released the song Wednesday, which contains suggestive lyrics about having a fling with another woman, fans began tweeting about the subject matter’s similarity to Katy’s “I Kissed a Girl.” Some also pointed out that the chorus sounds a lot like Jessie’s song “Domino.”

When Entertainment Tonight reported the fan reactions, Demi defended the tune on Twitter. “Sounds nothing like it and with all the advances we've made in the LGBT community I think more than one female artist can kiss a girl and like it,” she wrote.

Despite the accusations, the song already has more than a few famous fans. Iggy Azalea tweeted, “GO @ddlovato!!!!” And Scandal’s Kerry Washington tweeted, #CoolForTheSummer YES!!!!!!!!!! @ddlovato,” to which Demi responded, “Omg...... JUST DYING OVER HERE!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!!”

Denise Truscello/WireImageThink you know everything about Mariah Carey? Think again. The singer just revealed 25 surprising facts about herself to Us Weekly, including the bizarre tidbit that she swims in evening gowns and heels.

True to her diva reputation, she admits she hates overhead lighting. “In my opinion, elevator lighting is toxic!” she says. And she despises mascara. “Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit,” she says.

But lest you think she has assistants do everything for her, she says she “can make a mean gluten-free lasagna and an even meaner pecan pie” and that she’s a “very good laundress” when she has to be.

Among Mariah’s other revelations: She does all her own video stunts; she never wears a watch because “time is irrelevant” to her; she arranges flowers in her spare time; she’s addicted to Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder and Veep; and she was a frequent smoker from age 12 to 18, but she quit in one day and never went back.

Late Show with Stephen Colbert/YouTubeWhile the set for his new CBS late-night program is being built, Stephen Colbert is apparently itching to get behind a chat show desk -- which, he explained, was why he recently hosted a Michigan public access show called Only in Monroe.

The footage was posted on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert YouTube channel Wednesday night.

While not in his Colbert Report persona, Colbert was certainly in character, deadpanning through the 41-plus minute program as any local host would, on location in the local access channel's studio, which Colbert said was the perfect channel "to binge watch 2014 city council meetings. Spoiler alert: don't get too attached to that free parking on Cass Street.  It doesn't end well."

Colbert also performed live spots for local eateries and interviews with local newsmakers, including "a local Michigander who is making a name for himself in the competitive world of music...Marshall Mathers." 

Colbert acted as if he'd never heard of Mathers -- who is of course rapper Eminem -- sometimes to Eminem's apparent disbelief, and checked the Detroit native's Michigan bona fides by quizzing him on Bob Seger's songs.  Eminem played along, singing the hooks from a few, though most he didn't know.  "You claim to be from Michigan, but you don't know these songs," Colbert chided him. 

"So, where do you hope this goes," Colbert asked about Mathers' music. "Is it a career? A hobby?" He also warned Eminem, "This is a tough business, do you have a fallback position? Carpentry?  You just have to make plans for when the dreams die."

"I'm so confused right now," said Eminem at one point, who was there to promote the boxing movie Southpaw. "I'm trying to figure out if you're serious..." 

Em clearly was in on the joke, however.  He even read entries from the Monroe Community Calendar, and waved goodbye with Colbert through an absurdly long end credits sequence.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert premieres September 8 at 11:35 p.m. Eastern on CBS.

Frank Micelotta / FOXTo some, the Fourth of July means the beach, beer and barbecues, but Daughtry will spend that day being reminded of the true meaning of the holiday -- they'll be performing for the troops at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.  "It's just, like, the best crowd ever," says Chris Daughtry.

"That’s gonna be fun. We always love playing for the troops. We’ve done many tours overseas and different military bases and it’s just like the best crowd ever," Chris tells ABC Radio. "They’re so grateful and so awesome and they do all the hard work, you know?"

In fact, Chris explains why there's really a different feel when they perform for the troops, as opposed to just a regular concert audience.  "Because that’s their time to see the show. They can’t go next week; they can’t see it another time when you come back through. That’s their escape time, you know, and they don’t take that for granted," he tells ABC Radio. "You know like a lot of people [are like], 'Oh, well we saw them last month,' or whatever."

"I dunno, they just seem extremely grateful and it makes us even more proud to perform for ‘em," he adds.

Just because Chris is performing on Saturday doesn't mean he won't get to barbecue, though.  And when it comes to his favorite type of meat to cook over the coals, he's an equal opportunity eater.  "You had me at 'meat,'" he laughs. "Whatever, just throw it on the grill and I’ll eat it. I’m a caveman, I’ll eat the crap out of some meat!"  He doesn't want too much seasoning on it, either.

"I’m a big fan of spicy food but when it comes to red meat I don’t want it too spicy," says the singer, who's evidently quite the gourmand. "I don’t want it to overtake the flavor and the rotund and robustness of the red meat."

One thing Chris probably won't be able to do on the Fourth is shoot off fireworks: they're illegal in North Carolina, and doing that on a military base probably isn't advisable.  However, the singer says when he was a kid, doing that was a big deal for him.

"I used to love shooting fireworks as a kid -- get all the M-80s and the smoke bombs and go out and put ‘em on your G.I. Joes and see how far they’ll fly," he laughs. "Some of ‘em went pretty good and they would explode!"

ABC/Heidi GutmanThe Fourth of July is a great time to remember what America is all about, and for many immigrants, it's about the American Dream: making something of yourself no matter how broke or unknown you were when you started out.  Jason Derulo, whose relatives immigrated from Haiti, says his family's made that dream a reality.

Jason was born in Florida to Haitian parents, but he says it took quite a while for the whole family to settle in the U.S.  "I think my life is the American Dream, honestly," he tells ABC Radio. " My uncle was the first to come from Haiti and slowly, through working hard, he was able to bring one sister in at a time -- my grandma had 15 kids, so he had 14 brothers and sisters.  And slowly everybody got to come to America...and look at my family now!"

So how will Jason celebrate the 4th of July, which is a rare day off for him?

"Hopefully a big party," he tells ABC Radio.  No word on whether his huge extended family will be with him, or where the bash will be held, however.

He tells ABC Radio, "I don’t know whether it’s gonna be at my house, ‘cause I’m never at my house, but it’ll be nice to be home for the Fourth of July and, you know, throw a huge spectacle."

After the holiday, Jason will travel overseas to perform in Belgium and Hungary.  In August and September, he'll perform at several state fairs, and right now, he's got more European and U.K. shows scheduled, starting in January.

Image Group LA/ABCNo, you’re not imagining it. Taylor Swift has been wearing cop tops and flared mini-skirts a lot lately. And she readily admits her style obsession.

“It’s hard to say when I decided they’re what I want to wear all the time, but I’ll make up my mind, and that’s all you’ll see me wear for two years,” she tells People magazine.

If you look back at her fashion evolution, she’s clearly gone through some phases. “You might recall from 2012 to 2014, you didn’t see me in any outfit that didn’t look like I was straight out of the ’50s,” she says. “Who knows what it’ll be next.”

She does spice up her wardrobe every now and then, though. She recently sported a harness as an accessory while carrying a studded Christian Louboutin x Louis Vuitton bag. “I never say fierce because I think it should be used lightly and when it’s appropriate, but this is a fierce bag,” she tells People. “It looks like a weapon. It’s got spikes on it!”

It’ll also set you back $5,150. But when you’re one of Forbes highest-paid celebrities, you can afford to wear what you want.

ABC/Randy HolmesAfter being told she was “just here for decoration” while making her last album, Carly Rae Jepsen knew she had to take control this time around. She tells Elle Canada that with her new album, Emotion, she was adamant about being in charge.

“When I first moved [to L.A.], I still felt like a little girl, even though I was 26,” she says. “I was just very grateful for everything and scared to say anything. There were so many things that I wouldn’t be vocal about. This time, I’m a little bit less afraid and more in control.”

She says that after the runaway success of “Call Me Maybe,” she was rushed to create her 2012 album Kiss. “I’d show up to a [writing] session and people would be like ‘You’re just here for decoration; we’ll write the song and give you credit,’” she says.

After that disheartening experience -- and amid constant badgering by her management to top the success of “Call Me Maybe” -- Carly took a two-year break, which included a lot of soul-searching and a stint on Broadway in Cinderella.

“I think doing Cinderella really placed me outside of what I thought was the whole world,” she says. “Being around people who not only didn’t care if you were in the pop world but actually preferred if you weren’t took my head out of that game in a really healthy way. Suddenly, it wasn’t about sitting down and writing a song but having an idea while walking through New York City and thinking ‘Where’s my phone?’”

She recorded her title track, “Emotion,” after one such moment of inspiration. “The night I recorded it, I had to do a show, and afterwards the director asked me why Cinderella sounded like Janis Joplin!” she says.

Instead of rushing through the process of making an album, Carly took her time and handpicked the people she wanted to work with. “I gave myself time to experiment and make some left turns,” she says. “I think it’s hard for artists when they’re known for one type of music -- you go through this rebellion stage and think ‘But I’m so much more!’ And I definitely felt that. So I wrote about 200 songs just for me and my own heart.”

Emotion, which contains 17 of those songs, will be released August 21.

Capitol RecordsTori Kelly's Unbreakable Smile just got a little wider today: her debut album of the same name has debuted at #2 on the Billboard album chart.

Tori's previous entry on that chart was the EP Forward, which reached #16 in 2013.  Unbreakable Smile has already produced the hits "Nobody Love" and "Should Have Been Us."  Rock band Breaking Benjamin beat her out for the top spot with their new album Dark Before Dawn.

Over on the Billboard Hot 100, "See You Again," by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, is #1 for an 11th week, and is currently dominating the race for the Song of the Summer.  If it lasts another week on top, it'll the record for the rap song that's spent the longest at #1.  The record of 12 weeks is currently held by the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" and "Lose Yourself" by Eminem.

Selena Gomez blasts into the Hot 100 at #9 with her new single "Good for You." It's her third top-10 hit, following "The Heart Wants What It Wants" and "Come & Get It."  This is only the second song of the year to debut in the top 10 -- the last one was Maroon 5's "Sugar" back in January.  It's also the first song by a woman to debut in the top 10 since her pal Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off" in September of 2014.

Rihanna has become the first artist to have than 100 million in sales of gold and platinum-certificated digital singles under her belt.

The Recording Industry Association of America has announced that the singer has the most Digital Single Awards and is the only artists to reach having 100 million cumulative certified singles.  The RIAA awards gold certification for 500,000 in sales and platinum certification for 1 million in sales.

"Gold & Platinum is the industry’s premier way to celebrate achievement in the marketplace," said RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman in a statement.  "We’ve given awards to artists for nearly 60 years, but it’s rare that we have the opportunity to recognize a milestone like the one Rihanna has reached.  Congratulations to Rihanna!  She has not only surpassed RIAA’s one-hundred million mark, but also is the first artist to do so.  It’s an historic feat and a testament to an extraordinary career."

The hit songs that helped her achieve this career milestone include her nine-times-platinum "We Found Love", her six-times-platinum "Stay" and even her two recent platinum singles, "FourFiveSeconds" with Kanye West and "B***h Better Have My Money."

We're sure there's even more hits on the way as Rihanna continues to work on her long-awaited album, tentatively titled R8, which is due out this year.

Alex KirzhnerIt seems Flo Rida and Natalie La Rose have both decided to drop out of the Miss USA Pageant. The rapper and the singer were supposed to perform their hit single “Somebody” at the July 12 ceremony, but reportedly cancelled their appearances amid controversy over Donald Trump’s disparaging comments about Mexican immigrants.

A rep for Natalie confirms her departure to Billboard, and TMZ reports that Flo Rida has followed suit. Both artists have yet to comment on the Donald Trump controversy.

Donald owns the Miss Universe Organization in a joint venture with NBCUniversal, but yesterday NBC announced that it’s ending its business relationship with him. Donald made the inflammatory remarks during a speech announcing his presidential candidacy on June 16.

The pageant is still set to go forward, but it won't air in Spanish on Univision or in English on NBC. Dancing with the StarsCheryl Burke and MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts were scheduled to co-host, but they’ve also withdrawn from the event.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCTaylor Swift works hard and, apparently, plays hard. According to The Irish Sun, the singer and her Scottish DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris partied into the wee hours of the morning after her Dublin gig Monday night.

Following the first of two shows at 3Arena, the couple reportedly attended a secret after-party with Taylor’s dancers and touring crew at the Guinness Storehouse. Staff at the venue apparently didn’t even know the stars were in attendance and weren’t informed about the party until hours after it ended.

Taylor and Calvin then went back to the InterContinental Hotel, where they were staying, and continued the festivities until around 5 a.m.

Calvin’s been spending time with Taylor throughout her recent tour dates in the U.K. Over the weekend, they went for a sail on the River Thames in London with pals Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas.

Cliff Lipson/CBSAdele may be keeping a low profile these days, but she apparently has some very high-profile friends. The singer was spotted having dinner with soccer star David Beckham and his wife, Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham, at the Beaumont Hotel in London Monday night, according to the U.K.’s The Mirror.

The group reportedly was also joined by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and his wife Tana.

It’s not known if the meet-up was for business or pleasure, but Adele and the Beckhams are technically neighbors. In 2013, Adele reportedly purchased an $8 million home near the Beckhams' $49 million estate. The trio also counts Elton John as a mutual friend.

We’re still patiently waiting for Adele’s new album, which, if reports are to be believed, is being readied for a September release date.
