Late Night with Seth Meyers producer Mike Shoemakertweeted, "Right now we are shooting @sethmeyers and @rihanna day drinking. Yes RIHANNA. It airs Thursday night on @LateNightSeth and they are druuuunk."
Shoemaker included a photo which shows Meyers cracking up as Rihanna downs a pint of beer with a perturbed expression on her face.
As Billboard notes, earlier this year, Meyers told Jimmy Fallon, "I’m fully in love with Rihanna. My wife is fine with it because she’s also in love with Rihanna. It’s the thing we have in common."
You can see what happens tonight when he, Rih and alcohol mix. Late Night with Seth Meyers airs on NBC at 12:35 p.m. ET.
Taylor Swift has made albums about falling in love, falling out of love, or dealing with a specific experiences in her life. But she says with her new album Lover, she just wrote songs.
In an interview with the U.K. radio show Heart Breakfast, Taylor explains that despite the album's title, Lover isn't a record full of songs about her relationship.
"In every way, I want this album to symbolize kind of growth, and things you learn along the way, and things I find romantic," she says. "That doesn't mean it's just, like, a 'love' album and everything is a love song."
"The album is very pure in the sense that it's not in response to anything," she notes. "Like, this album is not responding to any sort of adversity -- it's really just, in my life, it's like, 'What would I write if I was just writing?'"
That means Lover is a complete 180 from 2017's Reputation, which was Taylor's direct reaction to having been labeled a "snake" and worse on social media.
"Reputation felt in a lot of ways like my only way to respond to certain things," Taylor told Heart Breakfast. "Like, what do you write when you're backed into a corner? Well, you write that album."
When the host described Taylor's new album as the "spring" to Reputation's "winter," the star wholeheartedly agreed with that description.
David M. Benett/Dave Benett/WireImageLove, Actually is considered to be a shining example of the romantic comedy genre -- but Ed Sheeran thinks his new movie is better.
Ed plays himself in Yesterday, a movie about a struggling musician named Jack who wakes up in a world where nobody's ever heard of TheBeatles but him. He then becomes a superstar by passing off their songs as his. In the film, Ed takes Jack, played by Himesh Patel, under his wing and helps him navigate fame.
The movie was written by Richard Curtis, who wrote and directed Love, Actually. Posting a photo of himself with the movie's cast at the London premiere, Ed wrote on Instagram, "well done Richard, it’s my favourite of all your films. Though love actually comes super close."
In another post, Ed reveals that Curtis originally wanted a different global pop star to star in the movie.
"Richard wanted [Coldplay's] Chris Martin originally but he was busy so they got me instead, but you can’t have everything in life," he wrote. "Go watch it, and tell your mum about it, she’ll like it too."
Yesterday, directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle, opens on June 28.
Getty Images/Dave Hogan for One Love ManchesterAriana Grande and Miley Cyrus are pals and have performed together before. But now word comes that they've welcomed another female artist into their circle for a collaboration: indie pop singer Lana Del Rey.
It's a sort of convoluted story, but here goes: A Miley fan posted a rumor on Instagram reading, "Apparently, Miley is set to release a female trio collab with her, Ariana Grande and Lana Del Rey soon! Are you here for it?"
Miley appears to have "liked" that post.
Meanwhile, an Ariana fan Instagram account reposted a Lana Del Rey fan account's message, which read, "An insider, who confirmed previous works such as She Is Coming by Miley Cyrus, alleges that a new collaboration between Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, and Lana Del Rey is coming soon." And Ariana "liked" the posting.
Fans are now convinced that because Miley and Ari have seemingly acknowledged the rumors, that means it's true.
Lana, meanwhile, hasn't commented on the rumor, but as W magazine points out, she's a fan of Ariana's. She posted a video of herself last year lip-syncing to "thank u, next," and revealed that Ariana's music is part of her pre-show playlist.
Perhaps the song will arrive on Friday. Stay tuned.
Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicImagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds is serious about repairing his marriage.
In April 2018, he and his wife, Aja Volkmanannounced that they were splitting up after seven years. However, their divorce was never finalized, and they reconciled in January. Now, as the couple prepares to welcome their fourth child, a boy, this fall, Reynolds tells People magazine that he and Aja are trying to make things work.
“I walked into relationships with this false notion that if it’s not all perfect and there’s arguments, then maybe you’re not with the right person. That’s just not the way it works,” Reynolds tells People.
He adds, "We’ve been going through marriage counseling and putting in a lot of work to keep our family strong."
Regarding their separation, Reynolds says, "Fortunately for us, we worked through it. If that hadn’t have been the case for us, there’s many people before us who paved that route and still raised great kids together or go on to be friends, or whatever it is. Relationships are complex.”
As for the new arrival, who will join daughters Arrow, 5, and twins Gia and Coco, two, Reynolds says, "I think we’re pretty overwhelmed to have four kids but we’re excited. We’re up for the journey and the task and it’s a joy and we feel blessed to be able to bring another life into our family unit.”
Unfortunately, the girls aren't as thrilled about their new brother.
"When I told my oldest, she got a little teary-eyed and was like, ‘I don’t want to have a boy in our family,’" he laughs. "I’m excited...but I don’t blame her. I was raised in a house of eight boys and one girl; I’ve had enough testosterone around me to last a lifetime!”
ABC/Heidi GutmanAfter sending the Internet into a frenzy with a tease of a new collaboration with Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello has now confirmed that their duet, "Señorita," will arrive this Friday.
The song is presumably the first track from Camila's hotly-anticipated sophomore album. According to the Hollywood Reporter, she spoke about the project at the Cannes Lions festival, saying it was almost done, and that it would be much more "intimate" than her debut, Camila.
"When I was going into that album I was kind of in my little bubble of life, I had far away crushes on people and would write about them and didn't really have any experiences with being in love. I only wrote about it from afar," Camila said of her first album.
But, she noted, "For the first time on this album, it's not my imagination. It's me writing about things that are happening in real time, and I think that there's a level of detail and emotion that you get from that that's kind of irreplaceable."
The award-winning star says the album captured the "essence of who I am right now," adding, "There are a lot of stories to tell this time around...I'm ready to bare my soul."
The Camila album debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart and featured the hit singles "Havana," "Never Be the Same" and "Consequences."
Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images for FentyAnother day, another theory in the never-ending saga of Rihanna's forthcoming album. This time around, it appears as though the singer may just be trolling us all.
Tuesday night, Rih welcomed the second coming of her Fenty fashion line to NYC during an intimate pop-up shop event. Amid the collection of futuristic sunglasses and shoes, one specific item has sent fans into a frenzy: a $230 t-shirt with the message "No More Music" written on the back.
But is the global star really ready to throw in the towel on her nearly 15-year long career? If you ask the RihNavy, the answer is a very swift and simple no.
Earlier this month, the ANTI vocalist shared some very telling details about the project with Sarah Paulson in a profile piece for Interview Mag. According to Rih, her next studio album is sure to be a "fun one" and she even lamented over the fact that it has yet to be released.
"It really does suck that it can't just come out, because I'm working on a really fun one right now," the singer told Paulson. "I'm really happy with a lot of the material we have so far, but I am not going to put it out until it's complete."
Of course, if Rihanna were to give up music, she wouldn't exactly go hungry: According to Forbes, she's the wealthiest self-made female musician not because of her record sales, but because of her cosmetics and lingerie lines.
Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic, IncWe've all had the experience of going to YouTube to check out a classic video from years back, only to be confronted with a less-than-stellar version of the clip. Well, now, the streaming platform has launched a new initiative to restore some iconic videos to their former greatness.
YouTube is working with Universal Music Group to remaster some legendary videos -- over 100 to start with, with a goal of 1,000 by 2020. The clips will be upgraded from the original versions that were designed to be watched on tube TVs with mono speakers, so they'll look great on your computer, mobile screen or TV screen.
Best of all, the new versions will retain the same URLs, view counts and likes of the originals, so no artists will be cheated out of a chance to join YouTube's billion-view club.
To find out if you're watching a remastered video, just look for the word #Remastered in the description.
Among the videos that are newly remastered now: Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance," "Poker Face" and "Paparazzi," Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now," Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'," The Spice Girls' "Wannabe" and "Say You'll Be There" and Maroon 5's "Harder to Breathe," "This Love," "She Will Be Loved," "Sunday Morning" and "Misery."
Also on the list: Lionel Richie's "Dancing on the Ceiling," Meat Loaf's "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)," Smash Mouth's 'All Star," Boyz II Men's "End of the Road" and 'I'll Make Love to You," Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done for Me Lately" and "When I Think of You," No Doubt's "Don't Speak," and OneRepublic's "Apologize" and "Secrets."
Peggy SirotaThe Jonas Brothers didn't sing at Joe Jonas' quickie Las Vegas wedding to Sophie Turner -- Dan Shay did. But the trio might bust out a tune or two when the couple tie the knot in another ceremony later this month.
A source tells Us Weekly that the wedding will take place in France in "late June," and adds, "Joe and Sophie want to have a huge party. The decor is going to be sophisticated, but there’ll be some kitschy elements, including a really wild cake."
"There’ll be a live band, and the Jonas Brothers are expected to take the stage," dishes the source.
Joe is the last Jonas Brother to tie the knot. Nick married Priyanka Chopra on December 1, 2018. Kevin Jonas married his wife Danielle in 2009; they have two children.

The singer and American Idol judge spent Tuesday indulging her inner Jedi at Disneyland's new Galaxy's Edge theme park, which recreates the Star Wars universe in amazing detail.
On her Instagram, you can see Katy posing onboard the park's full-scale recreation of Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, watching fireworks explode outside the iconic "hunk of junk" spaceship, making her own lightsaber, indulging in a lightsaber battle and enjoying otherworldly concoctions at Oga's Cantina.
There's also a picture of young boy wearing a Resistance pilot's helmet and an R2-D2 backpack -- he may be Finn, the son of Katy's fiance Orlando Bloom.
"May the 18th be with u!" she captioned the photos and videos. "Did I do it right?"
In other Katy news, she retweeted a clip of two members of the British band Bastille talking about how much they love Katy and her new single "Never Really Over" during a radio appearance in the Netherlands.
She replied with a request for a collaboration, writing, "maaaaates pls hv ur ppl call my ppl or my ppl will call ur ppl lets make a chune."
"Amazing," Bastille replied. "We'd bloody love to. We'll find some ppl to cold call your ppl and see if they pick up."
Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for The People's Choice AwardsBack in 2015, when Camila Cabello was still a member of Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes had just scored his first hit with "Stitches," they teamed up for a top 20 duet, "I Know What You Did Last Summer." Well, now they're both superstars...and they're getting back together for another collaboration.
Camila tweeted a brief clip of what looks like a new video, in which she plays a diner waitress and Shawn plays one of her customers. They exchange glances; he follows her out the back door of the restaurant, she looks up at him flirtatiously, and we hear one word whispered: "Senorita."
Shawn tweeted a scene of what looks like the same video: He and Camila appear to be kissing, and then he's seen looking off in the distance, distraught, while she's standing behind the counter at the diner looking wistful.
Earlier this week, Camila tweeted that her new music was coming "SOONER THAN YOU THINK," and it appears she wasn't lying.
A fan captured comments on Instagram in which Camila wrote, "IKWYDLS part 2????" and Shawn replied, "IKWYDLS part 2!!!!!"
Even the duo's fellow pop stars are excited. Julia Michaels, who worked with Shawn on his current album, commented, "Did everyone just die from watching this?!"
Ryan Tedder, who worked on both Shawn's album and Camila's album, wrote, "How dare u. How DARE YOU."
After the success of her first official solo single, "Low Key," Ally Brooke of Fifth Harmony is now out with a new single, "Lips Don't Lie," which highlights her sexy, sultry side.
"I couldn't wait for people to hear the way I sang this...I kind of use a different, airy, breathy tone," Ally tells ABC Radio. "I love this record so much. As soon as I heard it, I knew, 'This is the one for me.' I had to have it, and I have it now, which is really awesome!"
Ally also enjoyed making the video, which features extreme close-ups of her lips coated in various shades of dark purple, red, pink and glitter. She didn't even mind that her hair kept getting stuck to her lips and the glitter wouldn't stay put.
"It was messy...glitter specks from the glitter lips got on my face, so we had to be really meticulous and clean it up, but it was still fun," she laughs.
The song's title, Ally says, is definitely a nod to Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie."
"I'm a huge fan of Shakira....my fans know that," she explains. "This song was originally called 'Lips' and then I think the writers were like, 'Oh let's call it "Lips Don't Lie," because that's the main tag of the song, and it just so happens to mirror 'Hips Don't Lie.'"
After her time in Fifth Harmony, Ally says her newfound solo career is a dream come true.
"I really feel like everything led up to this moment in my life, and I feel like I'm thriving and found my confidence...after so long," she gushes. "I found who Ally is and I'm out there representing myself and thank God people are liking it and listening."
Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for AGAriana Grande isn't one of the many celebrities who make cameos in Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” video, but Taylor included the next best thing: a drag queen Ariana impersonator.
After seeing the video, Ariana took to her Instagram Story to praise both Taylor and Tatianna, the drag queen who played her.
"[Thank you] for having me in your video I was amazing @taylorswift,” Ariana jokes. “Jk @tatiannagram you f****** killed it, love u & am honored.”
Ariana adds, “Taylor, congrats on YNTCD. I f****** love it and the message sooooo much."
The video, which promotes acceptance and celebrates gay pride, also features drag queen versions of Adele, Lady Gaga, Cardi B, Beyonce and more. Ariana is a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community.
Andrew MacPhersonPink released a surprise gift for fans Tuesday: a video for her emotional duet with Wrabel, “90 Days.”
The clip, Pink explains, was shot “just for fun” with husband Carey Hart and directed by one of her dancers.
“I ran around the streets of Portland and Detroit while we were on tour and we shot a video for one of my favorite songs from Hurts 2B Human, ‘90 Days,’” the singer says on Instagram.
The video begins with Carey watching a YouTube clip of Pink on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, while she stares at him from across the table. We then see happy shots of her and Carey dancing in the kitchen and driving around together, intercut with scenes of Pink wrestling with her feelings while sitting in a bathtub fully clothed.
In the song, she sings about an underlying fear that the person she loves will leave her.
“If I'm just somebody that you're gonna leave/And you don't feel something when you look at me/You're holdin' my heart, mmm, whatcha say?/Just let me down slowly, I'll be okay,” she sings.
Tonight, Pink plays the RDS Arena in Dublin, Ireland on her Beautiful Trauma tour.
Atlantic RecordsEd Sheeran went through his contacts list and recruited all the people for his new album, No. 6 Collaborations Project.
On Instagram, Ed has shared the track listing for the upcoming project, due July 12, and it features stars from the worlds of pop, country, R&B and rap. Among the bigger names Ed worked with: Bruno Mars, Camila Cabello, country superstar Chris Stapleton, Cardi B, 50 Cent and Eminem.

TAS Rights ManagementWe know Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been on good terms for a while now, but they went public in Taylor’s new video for “You Need to Calm Down,” embracing lovingly while dressed as a burger and fries.
In a new interview with BBC Radio 1 Taylor explains that she initially pitched the video idea to Katy via text and wasn’t sure if she’d be down to do it -- but Katy was on board.
"I sent it to her and she was like, ‘I would love for us to be a symbol of redemption and forgiveness,’" Taylor says.
She adds that the idea for the burger and fries costumes wasn’t part of her initial treatment, but she was inspired by Katy’s burger outfit at the MET Gala after-party this year.
“I was like, ‘Can we do a burger and fries as, like, a metaphor for two people who belong together?’ Like people who are a perfect pair,” Taylor says. “And she thought it was really funny, so we did it.”
As Taylor previously stated, the two former rivals buried the hatchet after Katy sent a note and an actual olive branch to Taylor before her Reputation tour. When they ran into each other again, Taylor says, they realized they had “grown past allowing ourselves to be pitted against each other."
In other Taylor news, she's thrilled that Cher has retweeted the scene from the video that shows a framed slogan reading, "I am a rich man." That's what Cher claims she told her mom, after her mom suggested she "marry a rich man."
Taylor wrote, "When you have a song about being calm and the video has a Cher quote in it and she posts it so henceforth you are not able to be calm anymore."
Dave J Hogan/Getty ImagesVictoria “Posh Spice” Beckham decided not to join the Spice Girls on stage for their U.K. reunion shows -- but she didn’t come out to see the group perform, either.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain, Mel B, aka Scary Spice, says she was disappointed Victoria didn’t attend any of the shows in support of her group mates.
"I expected her to come and just say hi at least. Not even on stage, just as an audience member supporting," she says. "I'm sure she has her reasons for not. I've already said, 'Yeah, I was upset,' I still am a little bit. It is what it is and us girls, we all support each other no matter what."
She clarified that there is no rift between them. "We're all adults, we all have to respectfully get on with whatever,” she says. “But it is a bit disappointing, let's put it that way."
When asked if superfan Adele could join the group as the next Posh, Mel B said, "Adele is Adele and there's only one Posh, come on!"
According to Victoria’s Instagram, she and husband David were away at a wedding in Spain on Saturday – the day of the Spice Girls’ final show in London. Ahead of the first show in Dublin, Ireland last month, Victoria had written on Instagram, “Good luck to the girls today as they start their tour!”
Columbia Records"Old Town Road" just keeps on going: The song by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for an 11th week.
The last time a song spent that long on top was last February, when Drake's "God's Plan" started an 11-week run that lasted through April. "Old Town Road" is only the 25th song in the history of the Hot 100 to spend 11 weeks or more at #1.
"Old Town Road" is also on its third week at #1 on Billboard's Songs of the Summer.
Lil Nas' X's debut EP, 7, is due out on Friday.
Speaking of Drake, his new collaboration with Chris Brown, "No Guidance," debuts at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. That gives Drake's 24th top 10 hit, which ties him with TheBeatles. The only artist who's had more is Madonna, with 38.
