The Academy of Country Music Awards happened last night in Texas. Taylor Swift received the Milestone Award. She’s 25 years old. And she’s making pop music now. They made jokes about it, I think at the Country Music Awards, shortly after 1989 came out? Carrie Underwood? Something about never getting back together? In recent months though, Taylor and Country have actually gotten back together, although she would say they never broke up in the first place. Full Story

Here’s FKA twigs yesterday arriving at her show in LA. Afterwards, she and Robert Pattinson were seen heading to a party. Interestingly enough, Rick Rubin was spotted arriving at the twigs performance. What would (or will) that look like? A twigs-Rubin collaboration? Twigs is scheduled to be at Coachella again this weekend. Full Story

Robert Pattinson was at Coachella this weekend. Not his first time. And if he wasn’t dating one of the performers, he might still have been there. But, as it happens, he’s engaged to FKA twigs. And she was there. And he was supporting. And then they held hands and went to check out some of the other stages. Full Story

Madonna joined Drake on stage at Coachella this weekend. At one point, while he was sitting in a chair, she approached him from behind and put her tongue in his mouth. This seems to happen to him a lot. When he’s in a chair. Like with Nicki Minaj in the Anaconda video. I’m with Madonna here. Full Story

I feel compelled to repeat this whenever I write about Iggy Azalea: I am not a believer. The music does nothing for me. And the personality, I mean, I just don't care. Do you care? If you care, convince me why I should. Anyway, Iggy and Britney are collaborating on a new song called Pretty Girls. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Yesterday was supposed to be a big day for Madonna as the Ghosttown video was scheduled to drop at 1pm. I set the alarm. I couldn’t wait to see it after wrapping The Social at 2pm. Turns out I wasn’t missing anything. Because Meerkat, the app that had the exclusive on the video, was down. You know how she is. You know how she rehearses the sh-t of her sh-t. And that she hates this kind of sloppy. But it was sloppy. And I feel like the last few months of this album release have been much sloppier than we’re used to seeing from her. No one is harder on herself than Madonna. She has set the standard of best expectation for herself, so when she doesn’t meet that, no matter who’s to blame, it kills her.

But first…who IS to blame? It’s not like there weren’t other apps, other options, options that have proven track records.  Read Full Intro

Madonna & Lucious Lyon’s Ghosttown

Finally. Madonna’s Ghosttown video. As of this writing, I’ve only looked at it once so there may be notes to pick up later but you already know how I feel about the song – it’s one of the strongest, if not the strongest, on the album. A proper power ballad. And we haven’t had one from her in a while. Full Story

Here’s an early Wednesday bonus – new photos of Idris Elba. I need this. Because the week, it’s just draggggging. Idris was in London last night at the premiere screening and Q&A for his documentary Mandela, My Dad, and Me. During the session, he was asked about becoming Bond, all this talk that he might be the next 007. Full Story

Elysia just sent this over to me. Perfect way to end April Fool’s Day. But let’s get serious first, for real, no fooling. T-Pain is back. Without auto-tune. He tells Vulture that he struggled with depression for a while because of the criticism he received when the auto-tune movement began. Full Story

All this Zayn Malik One Direction drama is making me think a lot about Spice Girls and Take That. Oh look. Here are new pictures of Robbie Williams performing in Paris this week. As I wrote the other day, after Ritchie reminded me, Robbie's breakup from Take That was a major crisis moment for fans. Full Story

Well, Deadline has apologized by not apologizing, so it’s time to pretend that the NBC musical that was announced yesterday, The Wiz, isn’t totally a reactive, opportunistic move to make them look like they’re on the side of the good guys. Full Story

As Maria noted in her Tidal post, Taylor Swift was probably THE biggest name not present and accounted for at the Tidal kickoff yesterday. I say THE biggest name because, love her or hate her, you cannot deny Taylor’s chart influence, not only with the latest album 1989 but her previous ones too. Full Story

Yesterday was the launch of a new Jay Z-backed music streaming service, Tidal. It started with a social media takeover (which I’ll get to) and then a press conference. An awkward as hell press conference; I got the sweats watching it. Why was the crowd hollering, who did they invite to this thing? Was it fans, or media? The audible dip in applause between Kanye and Deadmau5 was painful. Full Story

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and producer Naughty Boy, who’s working with Zayn Malik on some new music, got into a fight on Twitter. Louis thought Naughty Boy (do we have to call him this???) was disrespecting the band and the fans and Naughty Boy (who can take this name seriously?) was like, nah, man, you’re wrong. Full Story
