Meghan Trainor and husband expecting a baby boy

Wiktor Szymanowicz / Barcroft Media via Getty ImagesMegan Trainor has revealed that it's "All About That Boy": She and her husband Daryl Sabara are expecting a son.

Meghan revealed the news on Kelly Clarkson's talk show on Tuesday. She said initially, she thought she was expecting a girl, because she went on line to read about all the things that supposedly indicate a baby's sex, like the rate of its heartbeat.  But she was wrong...it's a boy.

Meghan made a big deal over the fact that she'd saved the news for Kelly's show.  On Instagram, she posted a clip of the moment and wrote, "So happy we got to share this with you FIRST on your amazing show! #MOMGOALS."

When Kelly asked Meghan if she's started buying baby items yet, Meghan admitted, "I'm just over halfway and I don't know when to buy stuff! People want to buy me stuff, but I don't want to have two cribs .. what do I do?! Help me!"

Meghan first announced the big news earlier this month by posting a photo of the baby's sonogram nestled among the branches of a Christmas tree, in a nod to her upcoming holiday album, due out October 30.

Demi Lovato posts message instructing fans on how to...contact aliens?

Kevin Mazur/BBMA2020/Getty Images for dcpDemi Lovato's social media posts are usually full of self-empowering messages, information on her music, or statements that support causes important to her.  But a recent post features the Grammy-nominated singer offering her fans advice on how to, um, contact extraterrestrial life.

The post, which features photos and video of the night sky with bright objects visible, comes with a lengthy caption, in which Demi explains that she's been in Joshua Tree, California with "a small group of loved ones" and Dr. Steven Greer

Greer's Instagram bio describes him as "one of the world’s foremost authorities on the subject of UFOs, ET intelligence, and initiating peaceful contact with ET civilizations.”

Demi then writes, "Over the past couple months I have dug deep into the science of consciousness and experienced not only peace and serenity like I’ve never known but I also have witnessed the most incredibly profound sightings both in the sky as well as feet away from me."

She then states, "If we were to get 1% of the population to meditate and make contact, we would force our governments to acknowledge the truth about extraterrestrial life among us and change our destructive habits destroying our planet."

Demi then urges fans to download Greer's paid app, CE5, which stands for "Close Encounters of the Fifth Kind."

"It will teach you the protocols to connect to life form beyond our planet!! (Ps, if it doesn’t happen on the first try - keep trying - it took me several sessions to tap into a deep enough level of meditation to make contact!)," she writes. "Happy communicating."

Confused fans responded with comments like, "Girl, you trippin," "lmaoooo what the hell" and "What the actual f?"

"wtf Demi, I love you but this is kinda crazy and ridiculous," added another.

Adele's pal says people focused on the singer's weight loss are "missing the point"

Francis Specker/CBS via Getty ImagesThe news that Adele is going to host this weekend's Saturday Night Live is bound to send millions of fans rushing to tune in -- not just to watch her perform, but to check out her dramatic weight loss, which she's only offered glimpses of in social media posts.  However, one of her BFFs says people shouldn't focus so much on what the Grammy-winning star looks like, and concentrate on what she sounds like.

Appearing on the British talk show Lorraine on Monday, comedian Alan Carr -- who's so close to Adele that she officiated at his wedding -- said he wishes people didn't make such a big deal over his pal's appearance.

"She's always been gorgeous with those eyes and those lips," he said. "But you sort of missed the point if you're just worried about what size [panties] she wears. 'Cause it's the voice. It's that inspirational, awesome voice."

Adele first surprised fans with her physical transformation with a birthday post back in May, and has since posted several other photos in which many fans feel she's nearly unrecognizable.  But it's safe to say that most fans are just eager for new music from Adele, no matter what she looks like when she sings.

(Carr's comments come 6:07 into the video.)

Miley Cyrus working on Metallica covers album, reveals UFO encounter

Anne Barson/FilmMagicMiley Cyrus has been known to cover the Metallica classic "Nothing Else Matters" in concert.  Now the singer is apparently working on a whole album featuring her version of songs by the legendary metal band.

Speaking to fashion designer Rick Owens for Interview Magazine, Miley said she was speaking from "someone else's bad," and explained that by saying, "We've been working on a Metallica cover album and I'm here working on that."

"We're so lucky to be able to continue to work on our art during all of this," she added, referring to the COVID-19 pandemic. "At first, it felt uninspiring and now I've been totally ignited."

In the same interview, Miley disclosed that she once encountered what she believes was a UFO while driving through California with her friend.

"I got chased down by some sort of UFO...the best way to describe it is a flying snowplow. It had this big plow in the front of it and was glowing yellow. I did see it flying, and my friend saw it, too," she said.

"There were a couple of other cars on the road and they also stopped to look, so I think what I saw was real...I was shaken for, like, five days...I couldn’t really look at the sky the same," she recalls.

Why did the encounter affect her so much?

"I did see a being sitting in the front of the flying object," she explained. "It looked at me and we made eye contact, and I think that’s what really shook me, looking into the eyes of something that I couldn’t quite wrap my head around."

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom enjoy a safe drive-in screening of new 'Borat' film

Amazon StudiosJust because Katy Perry's a new mom doesn't mean she can't occasionally have a date night with her fiancé, Orlando Bloom. The couple was among the celebrities who took in a screening of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, aka Borat 2, the sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen's 2006 mockumentary, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Cohen posted a photo of Katy and Orlando, Josh Gad, Ariana Grande a few others posing with a nearly nude cutout of Cohen's Borat character and Cohen himself.  He captioned it with the hashtag #driveindoubletestedboratscreening, which Ariana later explained on Instagram was a "double tested/ covid safe/ drive in screening."

In character as Borat, Cohen posted the same photo, which shows the celebrities groping the cardboard cutout, and captioned it, "Hollywood liberals think they catch me, but these perverts actual committing sex attack on a fake! Great success!"

Borat 2 is set to be released October 23 on Amazon Prime Video.

Ariana Grande earns praise from mom after sending "Pizza to the Polls"

Amy Sussman/Getty ImagesAriana Grande gifted early voters in her home state of Florida with a special treat while they waited in line to cast their ballots: pizza.  And no one was prouder of her gesture than Ariana's mom.

The charity Pizza to the Polls thanked Ari in a tweet, writing on Monday night, "Thank you @arianagrande for sending hundreds of pizzas today to people waiting in line in Florida! Keep showing up!"

Ari's mom Joan Grande retweeted the message and wrote, "I am so proud of you @ArianaGrande ... keeping true to who you are .. getting the vote out, thinking of others, supporting democracy in the face of authoritarianism.... I love you!!"  Mom also said she was hoping to see Florida turn "the color blue."

Giving food to early voters is nothing new for Ari.  As Billboard notes, back in June, she also sent goodies to people in Kentucky waiting to vote in the state's primary election.

"sent some food and coffee trucks for everyone waiting in line! please pull up, enjoy and use your voice today we need u," Ariana tweeted.

Meanwhile, Ariana is gearing up to release her new album, which fans believe will arrive October 30.

I am so proud of you @ArianaGrande ... keeping true to who you are .. getting the vote out, thinking of others, supporting democracy in the face of authoritarianism.... I love you!! Florida, home state, the color blue will look good on you... do it #VoteBidenHarris https://t.co/oGHt6I9JoL

Ava Max reveals why she took nearly a year perfecting "Kings and Queens"

Charlotte RutherfordAva Max is celebrating her second single to enter the Billboard Hot 100, with "Kings and Queens" jumping to 32.

The 26-year-old singer admits that she took her time working on her followup to "Sweet But Psycho," but explained why she has zero regrets about taking almost a year to put on the finishing touches.

"We changed the song so many times," Ava told Billboard on Monday. "I wanted to make it about female empowerment and inequality, so I was taking my time with it."

The singer also confessed to being a perfectionist, adding that unless she feels she's putting forth her best effort, she will keep working on it until it's right.

"If I don’t feel it in my bones, I’m not going to release it," Ava attested.

Ava also discussed the concept behind her debut album Heaven & Hell, which is broken up into two "sides" thematically.

"We always have an angel and a devil on our shoulders. I wanted it cut in half [with] a brighter side and an edgier, darker side. Pick your mood," said Ava.

She also confirmed that more music is on the way.

"We’re working on a deluxe," she teased. "There are a lot of big, anthemic songs coming."

The singer also opened up about her thoughts about the ongoing pandemic, revealing to Billboard, "We can't tour or be with crowds and hug our fans, so it's definitely challenging."

While she does miss performing, Ava says the pause has made her appreciate her fans all the more.

"Seeing everybody, and how they're affected by my music, is really inspiring," she noted.

AJ McLean adorably reveals that Cheryl Burke has become like family to him

ABC/Laretta Houston

Dancing with the Stars whittled down its top 10 contestants Monday, which means that the competition is so tight, anyone can go home next week.

For AJ McLean, while he says it would be amazing to win this year's Mirror Ball Trophy, he believes he's found something even better -- a lasting friendship with his pro dancing partner Cheryl Burke.

The two immediately bonded from the start, but fans have adored watching their friendship grow stronger throughout the weeks.  The Backstreet Boy now says the two are like family.

"I've become friends with Cheryl. Our relationship is way, way past the ballroom. It's friends, it's family," McLean praised, adding that his daughters are also absolutely crazy about her.

"My daughters call her Aunt Cheryl, they love her!  And they haven't even met her yet, it's amazing," the 42-year-old pop singer gushed.

The two lit up the ballroom Monday with their sexy and breezy Samba to J Balvin's "Mi Gente," which McLean entirely credited his success to his dancing partner.

"Cheryl has really helped me open up and bring emotion to the dance," McLean praised, noting that she has never stopped believing in him, which has given him all the confidence he needs to impress the judges each week.

Burke replied that her goal is to help him become a "better version of your life, being the best you can be."

The judges adored how incredible in sync the two have become, with Carrie Ann Inaba declaring that the Samba was McLean's breakthrough performance.

McLean also hilariously divulged on Monday that he's developed a bad habit, which is continuously saying "sorry" during rehearsals.  In fact, he utters the word so many times, Burke has started adopting the phrase, which apparently drives her up a wall.

Sam Smith explains how they were able to accept their gender identity

Alasdair McLellanSam Smith says they have “always” identified as non-binary, but explained how they were finally able to come to terms with their gender identity.

“For me, what triggered everything was the work I was doing with my body issues,” the non-binary singer tells U.K.’s The Sunday Times. “I always had body dysmorphia. As I started to address that, I started to address my gender and realized that I was holding myself to these ideals of how a man should look."

“As I looked into it, I did therapy, I realized there was more to it,” they continued. “I have girl’s thighs and I have girl breasts too. It started to awaken this conversation that had always been in the back of my mind.”

Now, Sam says, they’re much more accepting of who they are and what they look like.

“In the words of Rihanna, I have been gifted with a fluctuating body," Sam says, referencing a Rihanna quote from three years ago. "I can lose weight, I can put weight on quickly, I am a shape-shifter. When I read Rihanna I felt very seen.”

Sam first came out as non-binary in May 2019. Six months later, the singer changed their pronouns to they/them, announcing the change in an Instagram post.

Sam is set to drop their new album Love Goes on October 30.

Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean opens up about his addiction: "I wasn't me anymore"

ABC/Frank OckenfelsAJ McLean is opening up about his 20-year battle with addiction.

The 42-year-old Backstreet Boys star and Dancing with the Stars contestant revealed to Good Morning America what happened when he first did drugs.

"The first time I tried drugs was literally an hour before my call time to 'The Call' video shoot," McLean recently told GMA's Will Reeve. "I was off the walls."

The singer also said he kept his addiction a secret until his behavior began affecting his band.

"When the boys kind of caught on, I missed out on rehearsal," McLean said. "They basically broke into my house, and they dumped ice water on me while I was passed out in my bed."

"Everybody started to catch on," he added. "I wasn't me anymore, you know, I was just living a lie."

Eleven months ago, McLean says he hit rock bottom after a trip to Las Vegas.

"I was never sober. Not for a second," McLean said. "And the turning point for me was when I came back home, my wife could smell it on my breath and my youngest of my two daughters would not sit with me."

McLean said he's been sober since that day and he's working with a program and a sponsor.

"There's too much to live for today -- my beautiful children, my amazing wife, my career, my brothers," McLean said. "I've never felt more grounded than I do today."

Halsey shaves her head again: "I did it"

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagicHalsey’s got a bold -- or should we say bald -- new look.

The singer revealed in a TikTok video Monday that she shaved her head. It’s a look she’s sported before and last week she hinted to fans that she was contemplating buzzing it off again.

“when I was bald everybody was so damn mean to [me] now every hot girl ever has a bald head does that mean I can go bald again or what,” she tweeted.

In the TikTok reveal, Halsey starts off with long flowing dark hair as she lip syncs over a voice track that says, “I’m not gonna do it, girl. I’m just thinking about it. I’m not gonna do it.”

She flips her hair forward and when she pops back into frame, her head is shaved. She strokes her new buzz cut as the voice track declares, “I did it.”

In her Twitter comments, fans praised the return of "Baldsey."

"NOONE WILL BE MEAN TO YOU ANYMORE IT LOOKS AMAZING," one fan wrote.

Taylor Swift jokes that some lucky fans might find cat hair and spilled wine on their signed 'folklore' albums

Beth GarrabrantLeave it to Taylor Swift to give fans who purchased a hand-signed copy of her new album folklore a little something extra.

The "cardigan" singer took to social media on Saturday to confirm she's hard at work signing copies of her eighth studio album, but made sure her announcement was completely on brand.

Not only did she take a photo of her precious Scottish fold kitty Olivia Benson snuggled up on the bed as Swift, 30, holds up a handful of signed CDs, the singer also teased fans that some copies will come with a few freebies.

"Along with the signed cd, some lucky purchasers of these items may even receive complimentary cat hair stuck inside the pages," the Grammy Award-winning actress explained, nodding to not just Olivia for donating her fur, but her two other cats Meredith Grey and Benjamin Button.

Some fans might find even more than some stray cat hairs inside their purchase, with Swift noting that some lucky purchasers will also enjoy "the aromatic scent of white wine I occasionally spill while signing."

In addition, Swift also made sure to point out that she chose to drop this hilarious fact on her favorite day of the week by using the hashtag #Caturday.

Fans hoping to get their hands on a copy of a signed "in the trees" edition deluxe cd of folklore can still order one on Swift's online store, which is being sold for $25 for her U.S. customers.

For her international fans who couldn't beat the rush, Swift recently updated her online store that's bursting with folklore goodies, from clothing to accessories like phone cases and popsockets.

Remember "The Dress"? Billie Eilish's shoes spark new viral optical illusion

ABC/Rick RowellWhen showing off her sneakers this weekend, Billie Eilish had a hard time believing that her fans saw two completely different colors.

The hilarious exchange happened Saturday via Instagram stories, when the "bad guy" singer was asked about what color the infamous "The Dress" was, which swept the internet in 2015, and made the case that instead of blue and black or white and gold, it was actually was blue and gold.   

Eilish used color swatches to back up her ruling before turning her attention toward her own optical illusion -- a pair of shoes that befuddled her dad a few years ago.

Showing off her Nike Air sneakers, Eilish joked that her father thought they were pink and white when, in reality, they are mint green and white.

Unfortunately, that amusement turned into outright bewilderment when her fans started defending her dad because they saw the same exact color combination.  

The Grammy Award winner snapped several new photos of her shoes under different sources of light in an effort to prove her Nike Air sneakers were mint -- not pink -- and even posted a Google image of the same shoe to convince her followers -- but to no avail.

When her numerous attempts were unsuccessful in proving that the shoes really were mint green, a wide-eyed Eilish adorably accused, "The whole internet is gaslighting me!"

The "my future" singer eventually dragged her shoes out into the sunlight and set them next to a pink pair of sneakers and declared "You know that I'm right" before deadpanning, "The entire Internet's been calling me fat for a week, so let me have this."

Eilish also confirmed that she has new music due out in November, and when a fan asked what color best describes the upcoming single, she used an autumnal orange-brown.

Miley Cyrus puts her spin on Cranberries, The Cure at Save Our Stages Fest

NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty ImagesMiley Cyrus let loose her inner rock goddess at the virtual Save Our Stages Fest over the weekend, a concert aimed at saving entertainment venues nationwide that have been crippled by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Rocking out at an empty Whisky a Go Go, a prestigious West Hollywood music club, Cyrus put her own signature twist on hits from The Cure and Cranberries during in her 13 minutes set, tackling "Boys Don't Cry" and "Zombie," respectively.

Cyrus kicked off her 12 minute Saturday set, backed by her six-piece band, with a riveting performance of "Boys Don't Cry" as she slowly took off her black hat and unbuttoned trench coat before diving into "Zombie," taking care to express that the lyrics, which were written 1993 regarding The Troubles in Ireland, reflect the current political and racial strife dividing the U.S.

Cyrus wrapped her set with her latest single "Midnight Sky," but was sure to give it a heavy rock makeover.

After bringing down the house for her segment of SOS Fest, the 27-year-old offered her sincere thoughts about venues like the one she chose to perform at.

"We're here at the Whisky a Go Go, where so many of our favorite artists have begun their journey to be icons," she proceeded. "Without venues like the Whisky, we might have never heard of artists like Jimi HendrixThe DoorsGuns N' Roses and thousands of other bands."

"Let's do whatever we can to keep this historic landmark alive," she encouraged.

In all, 35 artists performed for SOS Fest at 25 independent locations across the country, such as Foo FightersReba McEntireDave Matthews, the Lumineers, Kelsea Ballerini, Monica and many others.

As of late Sunday, SOS Fest raised $1.2 million out of its $5 million goal.
