Last week, Jhené Aiko, vice president of my emotions (SZA, H.E.R and Lizzo are co-prez right now) released a freestyle called “Triggered”, a beautiful song that is clearly about her long-time love and current ex, rapper Big Sean. As usual, Twitter took notice: Jhené has been dropping hints that she is missing Sean, and is publicly unpacking aspects of their adorable and public relationship that lasted from 2016-2019. Full Story

Just under a month ago, I had the undeniable pleasure of seeing Lizzo live at Coachella. Yes, it was the performance where she stopped the music and whipped out her flute to back her own track after the audio cut out FOR THE SECOND TIME. Watching Lizzo perform is a religious and life-changing experience, one I recommend to everyone if they have the opportunity. Full Story

Taylor Swift covers the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. This is basically a takeover. Taylor is a huge get for EW. They’ve dedicated several features in addition to the cover story to Swift content. And it’s a proper magazine interview – not an essay she’s written about herself, not another celebrity interviewing her, it’s conventional, it’s a departure from her “no comment” pose during the reputation era or, rather, a return to how it was before the reputation era. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jacek was watching the Jays game on his phone while I had the Billboard Music Awards on last night. He took his headphones off for BTS. I never, ever thought that this would be the thing to bring us together: a boy band! Not just any boy band, though, obviously.  Read Full Intro

This is what surprised me last night during the Billboard Music Awards: I was into the Jonas Brothers performance. Hard. I laughed at the fact that Nick and Joe had to remind us that they had successful singles in their own right before joining Kevin for their current song “Sucker” but I enjoyed every minute of them doing their thing all these years later, now that they’ve all had sex. Full Story

Earlier this week, it was reported that Madonna was spending $5 million of her own money on her Billboard Awards performance. As we saw last night, the money was for the tech – several Madonna holograms appeared alongside the “real” Madonna before bursting into digital confetti and…well…that’s Madonna, she’s always trying to try something new. Full Story

Taylor Swift opened the Billboard Music Awards last night with a marching band. You know where this is going – where else could it go? The comparisons were inevitable, non? Like, there is no way no one wouldn’t have picked up on it, especially since we just came off that major milestone of a cultural event. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Billboard Music Awards are happening tonight. These awards don’t really matter so, really, if you’re watching, it’s because of the performances. Taylor Swift is opening the show. Madonna is performing with Maluma.  Read Full Intro

It’s not a clothing and accessories line. This is a relief. As I expected, all those teaser photos Taylor Swift’s been posting for the last couple of weeks were scenes from the video for her new single “ME!”, with Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco. I heard from a well-respected music industry source yesterday afternoon who’d just listened to the song and the description they sent to me was that “it’s a f-cking smash Full Story
