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 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

So there’s the Taylor Swift way of doing things, which is to sit in the audience the whole time because they pretty much told her she was going to win everything. With as many friends as possible. And then there’s the Rihanna way of doing things. Which is to not sit in the audience. And show up to perform. Full Story

This didn’t end up being a surprise since Michelle tweeted about it a couple of days before the event. But still. Still. When she, Kelly Rowland, and the Beyonce reunite? It’s still a big deal.

Justin Timberlake the musician? No problem. His talent as an entertainer, in that respect, has never been disputed here. So if he lives here, at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, as a living legend, yeah, of course. I mean, what a “journey”, you know? Like when you consider all that he’s had to overcome? That his career, like Janet Jackson, who was also an “innovator” in her time, could have easily been jeopardised by violating whatever bullsh-t decency rules at the Super Bowl? How often does a young, blonde man rise again after controversy? That almost never happens. Full Story

Taylor Swift tried to clarify for us that it’s not “Starbucks lovers” in Blank Space last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards when she won for Best Lyrics but it all just ended up sounding like promotion for her upcoming tour. Right? Every time she was on stage, speaking, it was about the tour. Full Story
Bitch Better Have My Money.
That’s all I’ve been listening to in the car. At my desk. I haven’t taken Rihanna to the gym yet but I can’t wait to break the treadmill with this song on repeat. It’s that kind of song. Makes me want to screw up my face, get up in someone else’s face, pick a fight. Go to Indiana and ask that old Pence guy …
WHAT THE F-CK ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF?
Maybe we should send Rihanna there. Get her to tell him that his “wife in the backseat of my brand new foreign car”.
Because #BBHMM is an equality anthem. The next time there’s a Hollywood emails leak and female actors aren’t paid as much as their male counterparts?
Bitch Better Have My Money.
When they whitewash a movie and cast Blake Lively in the lead role?

I think I’ve mentioned a few times that I have a thing for Brandon Flowers? I say the same thing every time: He’s SO beautiful. God he’s so beautiful. Look at him! Full Story
While Taylor Swift continued her friend collection enemy isolation in Nashville last night, Katy Perry was in LA at the premiere of her concert film The Prismatic World Tour. Does it make you side with her more? The fact that Taylor seems to be systematically picking everyone off around her, with the exception of Rihanna who will not be bought or traded, motherf-cker, don’t you even dare? Not me. Full Story
