ABC/Paula LoboFor many fans, Demi Lovato's return to the spotlight won't be complete until they get some new music from the star...and it seems that time has now come.

On her Instagram Story, Demi posted some footage of music producer Oak Felder in the studio jamming out to...something -- there's no sound included.  "Wouldn't y'all like to hear..." she captioned the video, which was then followed by a "YES" and a laughing/crying emoji. Oak previously produced tracks for Demi's last album Tell Me You Love Me, including "Sorry Not Sorry."

Next, over a still image of a microphone in the studio, Demi wrote, "Recording a song for my loyal #Lovatics. The ones who support me and whatever makes me happy. If you hating – that ain’t you, BYE.”

Earlier this week, Demi made her relationship with model Austin Wilson Instagram official, posting a photo of him nuzzling her with the caption, "My [heart emoji]."  Austin shared a mirror selfie of the two of them together, captioned "My love."

It's not clear how long Demi and Austin have been dating, but she was recently linked to Bachelorette star Mike Johnson, who spilled the tea on their private dates by revealing that the singer is "a really good kisser."

ABC/Image Group LAIn 2019, we saw a lot of Pink, thanks to her album Hurts 2B Human and her record-breaking Beautiful Trauma tour.  Well, hopefully that'll hold you for a while because in 2020, she's stepping away from the spotlight to be with her kids and her husband.

"We did two and a half years of [music], and Willow's back in school now," she told Entertainment Tonight at the CMA Awards Wednesday night. "Jameson's going to start pre-school soon. It's kind of the year of the family."

"And [my husband] Carey [Hart] has a lot going on as well," she adds. "He's super-supportive, he follows me around the world and now it's his turn."

Pink and Carey will celebrate their 14th anniversary in January, and Pink told ET, "He deserves a trophy! We used to make a big deal out of it, now we're just lucky to be together."

Pink brought the family with her to the awards show and said having eight-year-old Willow and two-year-old Jameson enhanced her experience.

"They just make it fun for me. There's just so much to see, and it's really cool," she told ET. "This is [Willow's] second CMAs. She was a princess last time."

At the CMAs, Pink duetted with country star Chris Stapleton on her song "Love Me Anyway."

ABC/Randy HolmesBillie Eilish's brand new single "everything i wanted" is sure to raise the hair on your arms.  The six-time American Music Award nominee's emotional track doubles as a tribute to her brother FINNEAS as well as commentary on her sudden rise to fame.

“This song is one my brother and I wrote about each other," Eilish revealed in a statement. “No matter what happens, we always have been and will be there to make it better.”

FINNEAS is more than her older brother, he is also her sole collaborator and producer.  The two recorded "everything i wanted" at their home studio while they toured over the summer.

“I had a dream/ I got everything I wanted/ Not what you think/ And if I’m being honest/ It might have been a nightmare," Eilish begins in a whisper-like voice that sets the tone of her reflective and melancholy song.

Eilish single remarks on the darker side of fame through a series of metaphors, such as her stepping off the Golden Gate Bridge because she thought that she could fly.  "Nobody cried/ Nobody even noticed/ I saw them standing right there/ Kinda thought they might care," she muses.

The 17-year-old skyrocketed to fame and became a global sensation this year, racking up three billion views on YouTube for her breakout hit "Bad Guy" and becoming the biggest selling North American debut of the decade with her album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?

Eilish is about to embark on a completely sold out WHERE DO WE GO world tour in March 2020, which sold out in an hour of tickets going on sale.   

You can catch Eilish's next performance on November 24 when she performs at the 2019 American Music Awards.

ABC/Randy HolmesThe 53rd Annual CMA Awards aired Wednesday night on ABC, and later on, so did a sixth installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live!'s Mean Tweets: Music Edition.

As always,a variety of artists opened themselves up to some of the meanest, nastiest comments currently on the internet, procured especially by host Jimmy Kimmel. This time around, Billie EilishAlice CooperChance the RapperLuke PerryLizzoLuke Combs and a host of others took their licks.

As for the latter, one Twitter user accused Combs of making "music for people who taste the gas before they fill up their truck," while another noted, "Midland looks like they have a white van with 'free candy' written on the side" -- to which Cameron Duddy corrected, "It's a black van."

One of the biggest insults, however, was aimed at Cooper.  "Alice Cooper looked 65 in 1972.  How is he still alive," he read before shooting an equally confused look into the camera.  

The overall best reaction came from Cardi B, who read in a pointedly soft voice, "I just watched a muted performance of Cardi B and that b**** just looks loud without any sound on.  Like no thank you."

"How I look loud?  How I look loud??  I'm loud?"  She asks while looking around in bewilderment before deadpanning, "I don't even think I'm like loud.  Suck my a***"

Scandebergs for TIMEYou've heard of the TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world?  Well, meet the TIME 100 Next list...featuring Camila Cabello.

The publication has spotlighted "100 rising stars who are shaping the future of business, entertainment, sports, politics, science, health and more."  Why was Camila chosen?  In an essay, Latin music superstar Alejandro Sanz writes, "In times like these, when noise can distort the purity of an artist’s message, Camila has managed to honor her story and her background in an authentic way with her pop music."

The Cuban-American pop superstar, who was born in Havana, tells TIME that she's concerned about the immigration controversies that are currently dominating the news.

"These people are running from danger in lot of cases and just trying to look out for their kids just like anybody would. The reason I'm outspoken about my family's story, is that I feel like people need to just humanize the issues," she explains.

 As for her approach to fame, Camila explains, "With fans, I really just want to be as vulnerable and open as I can with them. I'm gonna be human and myself for this whole ride. I just try to look at it as me talking to a friend -- except there's lots [of them]!"

Camila's in good company on the TIME 100 Next list: It also includes include Crazy Rich Asians stars Henry Golding and Awkwafina, new SNL cast member Bowen Yang, YouTube star and TV host Lilly Singh, gymnast Aly Raisman, presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, tennis star Coco Gauff, and actors Marsai Martin, Keke Palmer and Asia Kate Dillon.

Jeff Kravitz/Getty Images via ABCIs Justin Bieber rebranding himself as an R&B singer?

Last month, the singer shared a post on Instagram that said, simply, “R&Bieber,” and now, according to TMZ, Justin's team is trademarking the phrase “R&Bieber” for "entertainment services," including live musical performances and production of sound recordings, as well as for merch and film.

The same day he posted "R&Bieber" on Instagram, he also shared another post, telling his followers that "if this gets 20 million likes Justin Bieber will release an album before Christmas."

We don’t know for sure if the album is coming that soon – as of now the post has close to 12 million likes -- but Justin appears to be gearing up for…something.

TMZ also reports that he was spotted at dance rehearsals Wednesday, because he's apparently started prepping for an upcoming, yet-to-be-announced tour. Sources tells TMZ he could hit the road as early as next summer.

Justin’s last album, Purpose, came out in 2015. Since then, of course, he's released a string of collaborations and one-off singles including his current hit, "10,000 Hours" with Dan Shay, and his duet with Ed Sheeran, "I Don't Care."

NBCOn Wednesday's Kelly Clarkson Show, Kelly brought her daughter River, 5, and 3 1/2 year-old son Remy, onstage so they could meet her guest Jason Momoa -- it seems the kids are huge fans of Momoa's movie Aquaman.  Remy appeared shocked to be meeting Aquaman in the flesh and didn't say a word, but River had some questions.

After her mom reminded her of what she wanted to ask, River blurted out, "Do you know (The) Little Mermaid?"  As the audience "awwww-ed," Momoa rolled with it. 

"Ariel? Yes, Ariel’s very sweet, she’s very nice," he replied.  Then, turning his attention to Remy, he added, "She’s also a redhead. I’m gonna teach you about redheads someday. They’re very passionate!"  Of course, Kelly and the audience cracked up.

But River wasn't done yet.

"Where does Aquaman go to the bathroom?" she asked Momoa.  After a beat, Momoa raised his hands above his head and declared, "Everywhere!"  The audience roared, as Kelly explained, "That's because you're in the water! All the time!"

Kelly then tried to get Remy involved, but he wouldn't say a word. "Hey, you like Aquaman," River nudged her little brother. "You watch it! Come on!"

As the audience died of cuteness, Kelly made excuses, saying, "She's the talker, he's the sensitive one."

Momoa simply put his arm around Remy and said, "He'll just chill with Aquaman."  Even after their mom told the kids to thank the actor, Remy stayed silent, but he adorably accepted the actor's high-five.

Peggy SirotaEven though John Legend is officially the Sexiest Man Alive, according to People magazine, he's not the only attractive musician featured in the mag's annual Sexiest Men issue.

The Jonas Brothers and Shawn Mendes are both on the magazine's list of Men of the Year, and they're in good company: The list also includes Brad Pitt, Jason Momoa, Idris Elba, Keanu Reeves, Paul Rudd and Last Christmas star Henry Golding, among other dreamy stars.

Joe and Nick Jonas also pop up again in the Hottest Couples list, with their wives Sophie Turner and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, respectively.  Also in that section: Justin and Hailey Bieber, and Michael Buble and his wife, Argentine movie star Luisana Lopilato.

The mag's Sexy at Any Age list includes more musicians, among them Khalid, Charlie Puth, Usher, rapper 50 Cent, Marc Anthony and Ricky Martin.  That list also features two of Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriends -- Harry Styles and superstar DJ/producer Calvin Harris -- plus her current one, Joe Alwyn.

"Old Town Road" rapper Lil Nas X is named Sexiest Newcomer, and in a feature called All Glowed-Up, People highlights John Mayer, Drake and Justin Timberlake as three formerly awkward-looking musicians who definitely got better with age.

The full Sexiest Men issue is on newsstands on Friday.

Valheria RochaMove over, Camila Cabello -- you're not the only one who gets to sing with Shawn Mendes.

Camila's pal Taylor Swift has teamed with Shawn for a remix of her romantic ballad "Lover." On Instagram, she wrote, "Well guys it finally happened: WE DID A COLLABORASHAWN. Sending out a whole entire THANKS BUDDY to @shawnmendes rn -- I’m so stoked that our remix of Lover is out NOW!"

In an accompanying video, Taylor says that Shawn "has taken 'Lover' and he has rewritten parts of it, which I think is so important 'cause I love him as a writer and I also think that everybody would write a different love letter to their lover and I think his take on it is so beautiful."

In fact, Shawn has written an entirely new verse and bridge for the song. After Taylor sings the first verse, he comes in and sings:

"We could light a bunch of candles/And dance around the kitchen, baby
Pictures of when we were young would hang on the wall
We would sit on the stoop/I'll sing love songs to you when we're eighty
See, I finally got you now, honey, I won't let you fall"

They sing the chorus together, and then, after Taylor sings her part of the bridge -- the "Ladies and gentlemen will you please stand" part -- Shawn comes in and sings, "Look in my eyes, they will tell you the truth/The girl in my story has always been you/I'd go down with the Titanic, it's true, for you, lover."

They finish the bridge together and repeat the chorus.

Considering that Shawn probably had Camila on his mind while penning those lyrics, they're definitely a swoon-worthy addition to the track. It's available now.

Well guys it finally happened: WE DID A COLLABORASHAWN. Sending out a whole entire THANKS BUDDY to @ShawnMendes rn -
I’m so stoked that our remix of Lover is out NOW!

Trae Patton/NBCOn Tuesday night’s The Voice, Carson Daly revealed which three artists who performed on Monday from Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend and Gwen Stefani's teams would advance to the next round.  Two moved on based on America’s vote while the other would be chosen by his or her coach.

Team Blake:

Ricky Duran and Kat Hammock advanced, based on America’s votes.  Blake saved Cali Wilson.

Team Gwen:

America saved Rose Short and Joana Martinez.  Gwen saved Myracle Holloway.

Team Kelly:

America sent Matt Boyle and Jake Hoot to the next round.  Kelly saved Shane Q.

Team Legend:

America saved Katy Kadan and Marybeth Byrd.  John saved Will Breman.

For the first time, the 13th spot was determined by a "Wild Card Instant Save.” One of the two remaining artists from each team, based on who received the most votes from Monday, were given the chance to advance to the next round.  Viewers were then instructed to cast their votes for the artist they wanted to save.

Based on America's votes, Team Blake's Ricky Braddy, Team Gwen's Kyndal Inskeep, Team Kelly's Damali and Team Legend's Khalea Lynee were eliminated.

Next, the remaining four artists sang their hearts out for America's vote:

Team Blake's Gracee Shriver performed Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams;" Team Gwen's Jake HaldenVang covered "There's Nothing Holding Me Back, by Shawn Mendes; Team Kelly's Hello Sunday tackled Eric Carmen’s “All by Myself”; and Team Legend's Alex Guthrie performed "Stay," by Rihanna featuring Mikky Ekko.

Trae Patton/NBCJohn Legend has another victory to celebrate over fellow Voice judge Blake Shelton -- he is officially People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2019.

The announcement came during Tuesday's night's episode of The Voice, which was certainly made memorable thanks to the shenanigans pulled by 2017's Sexiest Man Alive, Shelton. 

The country star happily passed over his crown, if the crown was a glittery pair of booty shorts with "VEGOTSMA" emblazoned on the back, that is.

"So ya'll already came into the show with an EGOT," began Blake as he clutched the pair of Daisy Dukes in hand, "and then you won The Voice so it became a VEGOT."  He then handed the glittery shorts over to the stone-faced Legend and proclaimed, "And now, you have... a VEGOTSMA" as the audience and other judges howled with laughter.

Unfortunately for Blake, his creative announcement was outdone by Legend's wife, Chrissy Teigen.

The model gloated on Twitter, "my secret is out. I have fulfilled my dream of having boned @people's sexiest man alive!! an honor!!!!!"   

She added, "I cannot WAIT for people to get mad about John being the sexiest man alive. it's my new Starbucks holiday cup."

Teigen then encouraged fans to check out her new Twitter bio, which proudly declares "currently sleeping with people's sexiest man alive."

As for how 2019's Sexiest Man Alive feels?  He says the honor is scary and exciting. 

"Everyone’s going to be picking me apart to see if I’m sexy enough to hold this title. I’m [also] following Idris Elba, which is not fair and is not nice to me," He told People when accepting his new title. 

To read John's full interview and ogle an abundance of hunky photos, pick up People's Sexiest Man Alive issue when it hits newsstands on November 25.

Image Group LA/ABCSelena Gomez certainly knows how to get fans talking.  On Tuesday the "Lose You to Love Me" singer posted a series of meaningful Instagram Stories which revealed a brand new tattoo and a kiss with Julia Michaels.

The new ink, which is a black arrow on her left lower thumb, matches the one Michaels has on her right hand.  "It's tatted.. my arrow points to you forever," Gomez wrote in her Story -- to which Michaels shared to her own Instagram Stories and wrote "Always to you baby.  Love you."

Selena also included a series of photos of the two getting tatted up before posting a photo, with a dreamy pink filter, of them kissing on the lips with a simple black heart emoji placed between them.

The tattoos were apparently part of Julia's birthday celebration, who turns 26 on November 13.   Celebrity tattoo artist London Reese did the ink and posted some behind the scenes snapshots to his personal Instagram, "I tattooed Julia while Brad tattooed the ever so sweet [Selena Gomez]," he captions.  "The vibes were the sickest and both these girls are as dope as you could hope for."

In the video Reese posted, it shows Gomez and Michaels holding hands during the procedure.

The two are longtime best friends.  As previously reported, the Hotel Transylvania star shut down dating rumors on Halloween when she declared on her Story, "I'm not dating anyone."

ABC/Paula LoboThe most memorable part in Halsey’s latest single “Graveyard” is probably her abrupt gasp after she sings the line, “The warning signs can feel like they’re butterflies.”

So, what made her add that part to the song? Halsey tells U.K.’s Capital FM it all started with some sage breakup advice from her mom. 

"I was going through a breakup and I was on the phone to my mom [saying] 'I just don’t understand how I could have been so stupid, we were so in love, he gave me butterflies,’” she explains.

"That was your first mistake," Halsey's mother told her, advising her that the “butterflies” she felt were actually warning signs because she was “scared and being manipulated.”

Halsey says her mom went on to tell her, "You should be with the person that makes you feel safe and makes you feel comfortable, like you don’t have to fight for their attention."

Almost a year later when it came time to write the bridge for “Graveyard” she thought of the line “The warning signs can feel like they’re butterflies,” and gasped at the realization that was exactly what her mom had told her. 

“I think the gasp was maybe me realizing it,” she says. “That’s why it stayed in there. And now my mom's like, 'I wrote that!'”

Valheria RochaHere's a rumor that should grab your attention: Taylor Swift is planning to release an entirely new album before the end of the year.

According to Hits Daily Double, rumors are "flying" around Nashville that Taylor has an all-new record which might be released before the end of 2019. And according to the scuttlebutt, this alleged record isn't the soundtrack to her upcoming movie CATS, in case you thought that might be it.

Taylor's current album Lover dropped in August.  However, we should point out that December 13 -- a date that, you may have noticed, comes before the end of the year -- is Taylor's birthday. And it's not just any birthday: It's the big 3-0.

Could Taylor be planning something special to mark this milestone?  After all, releasing two records in 12 months isn't that unusual these days.  For example, Ariana Grande released her album Sweetener in August of 2018 and then dropped her current album, thank u, next in February 2019.

As Hits Daily Double says, stay tuned.

Kevin Winter/Getty Images via ABCJustin Bieber is teasing a first look at his upcoming animated movie musical, Cupid.

The singer posted a portrait of the title character, the Roman god of love, which he’ll be voicing in the film. In the picture Justin shared, a winged Cupid sits on the edge of a cliff while holding an arrow. The artist’s rendering looks a lot like Justin himself.

Cupid is being co-produced by Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun. Music video and commercial animation director Pete Candeland has been tapped to direct.

The film will mark the first installment in the MythoVerse, a planned cinematic universe based on Greek and Roman mythology. The story follows the mythological characters Cupid and his own love interest, Psyche, a beautiful mortal.

Capitol RecordsHalsey has released an acoustic version of her latest single, “Graveyard.”

In a video filmed live in Nashville, the singer strums a guitar and strips the tune down into an emotional ballad. The new version of the track is also available to stream or download now.

“'Cause I keep digging myself down deeper/Won't stop till I get where you are/Oh when you go down all your darkest roads/I would have followed all the way to the graveyard,” she sings about an all-consuming relationship.

The original version of the song will be featured on Halsey’s third album, Manic, out January 17.

Wednesday night, Halsey joins forces with the country group Lady Antebellum at the 2019 CMA Awards. They’ll perform Lady A’s top-10 single, “What If I Never Get Over You.”
