Can’t go a day right now without hearing Where Are U Now at least a dozen times. So far, on my drive to work this morning, it’s already been twice. Justin Bieber told Ryan Seacrest he has a new track called What Do You Mean dropping in a month. It’s about not knowing what girls want:
“Girls are often just flip floppy. They say something and then they mean something else. I mean, I don’t really know. That’s why I’m asking, ‘What do you mean?’”
What he means, when he barely moves his lips in the video for Where Are U Now, is that a new album is coming. And that he expects to have a career in his 20s. Which…you know what? I wouldn’t write that off just yet. Where Are U Now has taken him into the clubs. This is the transition. And it’s what an artist like, for example, Avril Lavigne couldn’t do – secure a fanbase that would age with her, and attract a new fanbase that isn’t 14 years old.
Anyway, my friend Liz introduced me to a new song yesterday that I can’t stop listening to. It’s Kaskade feat. Ilsey. Disarm You. My summer jam this long weekend. I’ve attached below.

Taylor Swift played Boston this weekend. And during Bad Blood, a shark showed up over her left shoulder. As you know, Bad Blood is widely believed to be about Katy Perry. Full Story
Few people do slow jam wall-dancing better than Janet Jackson. And that’s how she opens the video for No Sleeep. That’s the gift we’ve been given this week after 5 days of great gossip… New Janet! But familiar hair! And that familiar sexiness. So that it’s fresh but still feels old school. Full Story

Beyonce stepped out yesterday after MTV nominated her for 5 VMAs, including Video of the Year. And they’re saying she’s a co-frontrunner in the category with Taylor Swift, of course. And, well, that just reminds us all of 2009, doesn’t it? I’ve asked you this already but it’s worth asking again – now that 6 years have passed, and you look back on that incident…do you still feel the same outrage? Kanye West was objecting to Taylor’s video winning over Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Full Story
Madonna released a new video for Bitch I’m Madonna, the remix. More like redo. This is what she should have done in the first place, instead of what we got the first time around, when the launch was f-cked up by Tidal and all we ended up seeing were people making cameos…without actually having to be in the same room as her.

Taylor Swift played the first of two shows in Washington DC last night. And her friend Lorde was there as the special guest. Then they told each other how much they love each other over Instagram: When your friend flies across the world to surprise your crowd with 'Royals' because she's a wondrous angel. @lordemusic Full Story

Last week I wondered whether or not Smutty Swift Collecting should be a daily feature on this blog. I feel like there is totally enough material to make it happen. Taylor played two shows in New Jersey this weekend. And, as expected, she collected. Everything counts in large amounts. (I had Depeche Mode on repeat all weekend. Full Story
James McAvoy and Sophie Turner were at Taylor Swift’s Montreal show earlier this week – click here for a refresher. Nicholas Hoult was apparently there too. And, from the looks of it, having a great time. Check out all these GIFs of Nicholas getting down to Swifty’s beats: Nicholas Hoult dancing to Taylor swift at her concert 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/M9fo5xWOQ5 Full Story
Sunday in London. At a recording studio. Chris Martin and Guy Berryman (I think? It looks like Guy Berryman, right?) were there. And then Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt arrived. Maybe they were working independently at the same place. But then again, Angelina and Chris have worked together before. Full Story
Younger, faster, stronger? Most of the time, I guess.
But if you watched the BET Awards last night and the tribute to Janet Jackson, that choreography not only still holds up, it’s a challenge for the new generation. And the drop-step-walk from Rhythm Nation will never, ever, ever not look good. So, no, that is definitely not the end. Janet is back. And she more than made up for the excessive amount of Chris Brown during the show.
Smokey Robinson did too. First Smokey lectured the audience about being too far up their own asses and to stop being so spoiled. “So don’t be so full of yourselves.” And this happened right after Diddy introduced him after bigging himself up first. Then Smokey performed and I almost got pregnant. Like, if I had any interest in having a baby, Smokey would have made that happen.
More BET Awards coverage to come.

Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson were photographed at Glastonbury today. People freaked out. This surprised me because I didn’t think there would be any One Directioners at Glastonbury. You remember what Nick Grimshaw said about One Direction and Glastonbury a couple of years ago? "I don't think One Direction's music sounds like the stuff that is historically supported by Glastonbury. Full Story
