Billie Lourd Pays Tribute to Late Mother Carrie Fisher on Sixth Anniversary of her Death

  Billie Lourd wrote a tribute post to her late mother Carrie Fisher six years after Carrie’s death. In a Tuesday Instagram post, the Ticket to Paradise star acknowledged the six-year anniversary of her mother Carrie Fisher’s death. Captioning a photo of herself and her late mother together, Billie wrote, “It has been 6 years since my Momby died (feels like 2 but also like 705 at the same time?). And unlike most other years since she’s died, this year, these past two weeks have been some of the most joyful of my life.” Billie and her husband Austen Rydell welcomed their second child, Jackson, on 12 December. They also share two-year-old Kingston. “My mom is not here to meet either of them and isn’t here to experience any of the magic. Sometimes the magical moments can also be the hardest,” the actress shared in her post. “For anyone out there experiencing the reality of grief alongside the magic of life, I see you. You are not alone.” She advised anyone experiencing both “magical” and

Everything You Need To Know About Adele's New Album

Adele/Vogue
Adele is set to release her fourth studio album, which fans believe is titled 30 due to mysterious billboards that have popped up around the world. The British singer recently sat down with British and American Vogue to share several details about the upcoming release, including lyrical content, song inspirations and overarching themes on the album.

Below are the most important revelations from Adele's interviews with Vogue.


Hey there, don’t Expect a "Hello" type of Anthem from Adele

In Adele's interview, she mentioned that she hasn't tried to replicate the success of "Hello," which hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2015. “I don’t want another song like that. That song catapulted me in fame to another level that I don’t want to happen again. I’m not saying I’ve got ‘Hello’s in my pocket. I was just conscious that I didn’t want my story on this album to sound like that,” the singer explained.


It's Her Most Personal Album

“It’s sensitive for me, this record, just in how much I love it,” Adele told American Vogue. “I always say that 21 doesn’t belong to me anymore. Everyone else took it into their hearts so much. I’m not letting go of this one. This is my album. I want to share myself with everyone, but I don’t think I’ll ever let this one go.”


The "Rolling In the Deep" singer also shared that she placed her personal interests at the forefront of making the record. “I was drunk as a fart on 21; I really don’t remember much, I just remember being really sad. On 25, I was obviously sober as anything, because I was a new mum. That one, I was sort of more in tune with what I thought people might want or not want. With this one,” she said of the upcoming release, “I made the very conscious decision to be like, for the first time in my life, actually, ‘What do I want?’”


“I feel like this album is self-destruction,” Adele added, “then self-reflection and then sort of self-redemption. But I feel ready. I really want people to hear my side of the story this time.”


Though the 33-year-old spent a large portion of her interview discussing her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki, fans shouldn't expect the album to be solely about their split. "I assumed it would be about my divorce, but it’s kind of not," with the magazine describing the body of work as "her usual singer-songwriter gear to midnight chanteuse to chilled Balearic club at sundown."


Several Lyrics Have Been Released 

The singer revealed that “Easy On Me” will be the first single from the album after sharing a snippet of the song on Oct. 5.


The clip didn't include any lyrics, but the feature revealed some lines from the piano-heavy track: “Go easy on me baby/ I was still a child/ Didn’t get the chance to/ Feel the world around me.”


Adele did not share any of the song's titles with the interviewers, but the writers shared two additional sets of lyrics: “My little love/ I see your eyes/ Widen like an ocean/ When you look at me/ So full of my emotions” and “I just want to love you for free/ Everybody wants something from me/ You just want me,” lines from two separate songs.


There Are No Traditional Features

While there are no official artist features on Adele's album, the singer did incorporate VoiceNotes from Tyler, the Creator and Skepta on the record. “I thought it might be a nice touch, seeing as everyone’s been at my door for the last 10 years, as a fan, to be like, Would you like to come in?” she said.


Adele's friends also make an appearance on the record, singing the words “Just hold on, just hold on,” over and over on a gospel-infused track. “The thing that they’re all singing is what my friends used to say to me,” she explained. “That’s why I wanted them to sing it, rather than an actual choir.”

Stormzy Fanboys Over Taylor Swift Backstage At MTV EMAs

 The pair both attended the MTV European Music Awards (EMAs) in Dusseldorf, Germany on Sunday (13.11.22) - where the US pop megastar dominated the evening, earning four gongs - and the Grime star was successful in his pursuit of grabbing a snap with the 'Karma' hitmaker backstage at the bash. He posted on his Instagram Story: "Man’s trying to get a selfie with Taylor Swift! Man’s running around." The 'Vossi Bop' hitmaker then captioned a selfie tagging the singer: "@taylorswift can I have a selfie please." He then updated fans: "Mans going to meet Taylor. (sic)" And sure enough, he posed with the 'Shake It Off' hitmaker before adding a final picture of himself with a massive smile beaming across his face. Pleased with himself, he gushed "So happy." The 29-year-old rapper has made a habit out of fanboying over his idols backstage at awards ceremonies. In 2020, Stormzy interrupted Billie Eilish's backstage interview at t

Drake Is Offended By Dad’s Tattoo Of His Face

    Drake shared that he isn’t too fond of his dad tattoo of his face. See the ink in question that has Drizzy wondering "why you do me like this." Drizzy took to Instagram to make fun of his dad Dennis Graham's tattoo—which happens to be a portrait of Drake's face. "I was just sitting here thinking why you do me like this," the rapper wrote on Aug. 8, "We family," he added, along with laughing-crying emojis to get the joke across. Guess it's safe to assume Drake isn't a fan of the ink, which was done nearly five years ago. And since that first tattoo session, Dennis has done his best to get the tattoo changed. "Hahaha I had 16 people to try and straighten this out," Dennis commented, "they're hurting me." In a separate comment, Dennis added, "I love you and miss you." While Drake has been known to have a few portrait tattoos of his own, such as Lil Wayne, Denzel Washington, and even his dad's mugshot.

Kid Cudi Wants to Help Lil Nas X Destroy the 'Homophobic Cloud Over Hip-Hop'

  Kid Cudi is extending himself to Lil Nas X . For Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2021 list, published on Wednesday (Sept. 15), Cudi wrote about Lil Nas X and declared his support for the "Industry Baby" artist after the 22 year old tweeted that Black male rappers aren't interested in working with him. "When I saw the tweet about Nas’ album Montero not featuring Black male artists, and he replied that 'maybe a lot of them just don’t wanna work with me,' that made me sad," Cudi wrote. "There’s a homophobic cloud over hip-hop, and he’s going to break that s--- down. We have to stand with him. I’m going to do whatever I have to do to let him know -- you have my support. When we do our song together, however trippy the video is, let’s get sexy with it." After seeing Lil Nas' tweet, Cudi replied, "N---a I'll work w u and frolic in rose gardens w u and singin about my pain." In a follow up tweet, Lil Nas told his follo
