Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris Split Up? Singer Dumped DJ Last Wee
It wasn't too long ago that Taylor Swift publicly gushed, "I love you," to boyfriend Calvin Harris following one of her concerts in Los Angeles, but it appears that the couple may no longer be together.

According to Radar Online, the pop star, 25, dumped the DJ, 31, after just six months together because she found out he went to a Thai massage parlor for a two-hour visit last month. Swift grew suspicious because Harris "has his own masseuse, on staff," but instead he elected to get a Thai massage, which was advertised for $40.

Taylor Swift Thinks Fans Need A Break From Taylor Swift
There's pretty much no debate that Taylor Swift has been the 'It Girl' of the music industry for the last year. Her latest album, 1989, debuted to rave reviews last October, sold millions and generated multiple hit singles that have dominated the radio waves. Swift kept the momentum going recently when she won Video of the Year at the MTV Music Awards for 'Bad Blood', a song she supposedly wrote in response to her feud with fellow pop star Katy Perry.

Swift has capitalised on all of this success through her 1989 World Tour, which ends with a series of shows in Austrailia in December. So wh...

When The Shade Hits The Fan: 9 Shady Music Moments From 2015
Musicians have been “throwing shade” at each other for years – understatement. In fact, before it was known colloquially as throwing shade, the esteemed classical composers were literally ripping each other apart with their harsh critiques of one another. Each and every year, new shade is thrown into the hands of the media, which in turn is presented to the people for their entertainment pleasure.

Drake And Future Take ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ To No. 1
Lana Del Rey could practically taste her second no. 1 album – that is until Drake and Future totally ‘killed her vibe’ with surprise mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive. Expectedly, the superstar hip-hop collaboration was too much for the moody, alt-pop singer to overcome. In other words, her Honeymoon in the ‘penthouse’ wasn’t meant to be. Okay, okay, enough puns!

Drake and Future took top honors on the Billboard 200, to the tune of 375,000 units – WOW! This doesn’t outpace Drake’s earlier no. 1 album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late or the juggernaut that was The Weeknd’s Beauty Behin...

It does mean, though, that since the show spoiled itself with a plethora of guests last year, there may not as many famous folks as there usually are clamoring for a chance on Studio 8H.

The Weeknd Keeps Top Spot For Third Week

The Weeknd Makes It Three Weeks At No. 1 On Billboard
For a third consecutive week, The Weeknd keeps the top spot on the Billboard 200 piping hot. Well, perhaps the 99,000 units that Beauty Behind The Music moved this week isn’t ‘the second coming’ but The Weeknd definitely has a good thing going for him. Three weeks in, Beauty Behind The Madness has moved around 655,000 units. Pure sales are less robust eliminating streaming and tracking from the formula, but still Beauty Behind The Madness is putting up some sales numbers as well – impressive!

Not only is The Weeknd getting it done on the Billboard 200, but also he is equally hot on the...

Adams decided to record the album last December, telling Beats1 Radio's Zane Lowe that he's always had a respect for Swift's "flawless" and "perfect" songwriting, but he isn't really sure why he chose to take on the project.

"I don't know why I had this idea," he said (via NME.com). "I was going through a sort of difficult time in my life."

Disturbed Return To a Familiar Place – No. 1 On The Billboard 20
Disturbed shocked the world this week – NOT! The popular rock band debuted at #1 for a fifth straight time with Immortalized, their first new album in five years. The numbers weren’t sexy per se, but the 98,000 units were enough to seal the deal atop the Billboard 200. Still, isn’t it a shame that no album was able to move 100,000 units for a second straight week? It’s not 42,000 units level of tepidness that Descendants endured, but still.

Disturbed weren’t the only debuts to land within the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Country singer Kip Moore quietly bows fourth with Wild Ones to th...
