Rich Fury/MTV VMAs 2020/Getty Images for MTVIs Bebe Rexha's new romance "Meant to Be?"

The Grammy-nominated singer was seen smooching with a man People identifies as filmmaker Keyan Safyari in L.A. on Thursday.  The kiss took place, reports People, as a new Ferrari was delivered to her house as a birthday present for him.

On her Instagram Story, Bebe posted numerous photos of herself posing in the car in a sexy lace pantsuit, and kissing Safyari -- whose face is obscured by a heart -- with the caption "Happy birthday baby."

According to a British tabloid report, the two were first seen together in March, holding hands in L.A.

In 2019, Bebe told Health magazine that she considers herself "fluid," explaining, "I just want to find someone I love and who loves me — and I don't care if that's a boy or a girl." 

That same year, she told NYLON that she thinks she "scares" off potential partners -- especially men.

Courtesy Interscope RecordsIf you've watched Lady Gaga's new video for "911" and wondered about the inspiration for all the bizarre and surreal imagery, well, there's a clear answer.

It appears that the entire video is an homage to a 1969 art film called The Color of the Pomegranates by Sergei Parajanov.  According to W magazine, "911" director Tarsem -- known for directing the video for R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion" and movies like The Cell -- has frequently cited Parajanov as a major influence on his work.

The movie tells the story of the 18th century Armenian poet and musician Sayat-Nova. There's very little dialogue in it; most of the story is told through sound, music, images and title cards.

To drive the point home, in the first scene of the clip, when Gaga wakes up in the desert, she's surrounded by pomegranates -- apparently a symbol of Armenia.  At the end of the clip, when we're back in the present day, we see Gaga lying in front of a movie marquee advertising "Armenian Film Festival," as well an actual poster for The Color of the Pomegranates.

Many Twitter users have pointed out that many of the scenes of the video where Gaga is in the village surrounded by strangely dressed people are shot-by-shot recreations of scenes from Parajanov's movie.

ABC/Image Group LA“The Git Up” star Blanco Brown is on the mend after a serious head-on motorcycle collision in early September left him hospitalized and fighting for his life. The singer underwent a 12-hour surgery to address the unspecified traumas he sustained.

Fortunately, Blanco is expected to make a full recovery. As he continues to heal, the singer touched base with his fans on social media for the first time since the crash. He posted a picture of the helmet that he was wearing, and also praised the rest of his Indian Motorcycle safety gear for “[showing] true to its quality.”

“Firstly, I have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for sparing my life and keeping me whole!!!” Blanco wrote. “The fact that I’m here and still in my right mind is God’s proof -- I feel so blessed!”

He went on to thank his fans, friends, family and everyone else who wished him well after the accident.

“I fought for my life,” the singer noted. “I fought to see all y’all’s faces and those smiles again, and I fought to share my purpose.”

In the picture he shared, Blanco’s arms are still in casts. However, he seemed to be in high spirits, and excited to return to normal life and music-making.

“God ain’t done with me yet, we’re just getting started!” he promised.

ACMA2020/Getty Images for ACMAfter debuting her song "betty" Wednesday night at the Academy of Country Music Awards, Taylor Swift has now made the live, stripped-down acoustic performance available for streaming and download.

In addition, the video of the performance itself is now available on Taylor's YouTube channel.

On top of that, Taylor's released a new collection of merch called the "Showed Up at Your Party" collection, named after a line in the song.  It features three t-shirts, two of which feature a heart with the names "James Betty" inside it -- the names of two characters in the song. 

The other shows an image of a school, depicted in an old-fashioned cross-stitch pattern, with the lyric, "Betty, I won't make assumptions about why you switched your homeroom, but I think it's cause of me."

Taylor has confirmed that she named the three characters in the song -- James, Inez and Betty -- after the children of her friends Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively.

Her performance of "betty" on the ACMs was her first appearance on the country music awards show in seven years.

Courtesy of Interscope RecordsLady Gaga has premiered a visually stunning music video for "911," a song from her latest album Chromatica.

"This short film is very personal to me, my experience with mental health, and the way reality and dreams can interconnect to form heroes within us and all around us," she writes on Instagram.

She goes on to thank the director, Tarsem, for "sharing a 25 year old idea he had with me because my life story spoke so much to him," as well as her team for "being strong for me when I wasn't," and the crew for making the film safely.

"It’s been years since I felt so alive in my creativity," she notes. 

"Thank you little monsters. I’m awake now, I can see you, I can feel you, thank you for believing in me when I was very afraid," she adds. "Something that was once my real life everyday is now a film, a true story that is now the past and not the present. It’s the poetry of pain."

In the video, Gaga awakens in the middle of the desert, surrounded by broken pieces of a bicycle, and follows a mysterious black-clad figure on horseback to a town. There, she witnesses, and then becomes part of, what seems to be a bizarre religious ceremony.

But the music stops, and Gaga starts to scream and cry: Suddenly, we see that it was all a hallucination. In reality, Gaga's been badly injured in a bicycle accident and she's on a gurney, being checked out by EMTs.  All the surreal video imagery was just her mind warping the reality around her.

"I don't want to die!" she sobs, as the video ends.

If you watch the video on LG OLED TV, you'll be able to see an "exclusive visual experience," created specifically for LG.

Columbia/LegacyOn Thursday, Mariah Carey shared an excerpt from her upcoming memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey, in which she details her love for the 1980 movie Fame and its star, Irene Cara.  Now, you can hear Mariah sing one of the songs Cara performed in that movie: "Out Here on My Own," a top 20 hit and an Oscar nominee for Best Original Song.

In the excerpt, Mariah wrote, "My mother entered me in a talent competition in the city, and I sang one of my favorite songs, 'Out Here on My Own,' by Irene Cara. I felt 'Out Here on My Own' described my entire life, and I loved singing that way -- singing to reveal a piece of my soul. And I won doing it."

"At that age. I lived for the movie Fame, and Irene Cara was everything to me," she continued. "I related to her multicultural look...her multi-textured hair and, most importantly, her ambition and accomplishments."

"'Out Here on My Own' was such a pure song that touched my heart, and I couldn't believe I won a trophy for singing a song I loved," she wrote. "It was the first time I'd received validation as an artist."

On Instagram, Mariah explained, "Coincidentally, it wasn't until after I had written about 'Out Here On My Own' in the book, that I found it in the vault while making The Rarities. Totally meant to be!!"

Mariah's version of the song is now out.  The track, recorded July 17, 2000, was going to appear on the soundtrack album of her 2001 movie Glitter, which was apparently originally titled All That Glitters.  It's included on Mariah's album The Rarties, due October 2.

Colour Vision Records/Sony Music EntertainmentFour years after his debut album, MAX has finally released his sophomore album Colour Vision.  Why now? He says there's no time like the present.

"I'm already onto the next batch [of songs], so I feel like it's the perfect time to wrap up the chapter," he tells ABC Audio. "I think, if anything, it's a lesson: God laughs at your plans, so just put out where you're at in your life and and move on from it."

"Who knows where the world will be at in two more years or a year from now?" he points out. "So for me at least, I feel like I just want to give this little piece of magic that hopefully people can latch onto."

And while MAX knows he spent much longer on the album than usual, he wanted to make it perfect for his fans.

"I wanted it to be an album that they listened to in five years and 10 years, and be able to look back and say 'That still stands up,'" he says of the project, which features collabs with Hayley Kiyoko, BTS' Suga, Quinn XCII and Chromeo.

As for title Colour Vision, MAX explains, "It's a feeling. I think for me, I really did, before this album, see things a little less in color."

What changed his outlook?  He almost lost his voice -- and had to have surgery to fix it.

"Before this album, I was looking towards, 'I just need to get to this place to feel the most successful,'" he admits.

"And I think once I got my voice back, there was a new gratitude of just...appreciate every day, every show, every song. And that's what Colour Vision means to me and what I hope it means...to other people."

ABC/Image Group LALil Nas X certainly kept himself busy while the nation went into lockdown.  Not only did he write a children's storybook, C Is for Country, due out in January, but he also hit up the studio to work on brand new music.

Speaking with E!, the "Old Town Road" singer revealed that he refused to fall into the doldrums of quarantine and made every second of downtime count.

"Quarantine has probably been the best thing that could have happened to me to where I am in my career right now," the Grammy-winner said. "It's given me so much time to think through while creating music."

While he may have an idea of how he wants to introduce his new tracks, the rapper admits that the ongoing pandemic, and other major cultural events like the Black Lives Matter protests, "will probably play a role into how I want to release it, but you can't stop what's meant to happen."

Lil Nas X doesn't appear too nervous about how his fans will react to his new music, either.  Considering that he smashed the record for longest-running number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 -- "Old Town Road" spent 19 weeks at the top -- he doesn't feel pressure to outdo his past success.

"I'm happy creating. I know what I put out next people are going to love," he smiled. "I'm just confident in what I've been working on."

Beyond expanding his burgeoning music career, Lil Nas X is also excited to be jumping into the fashion industry -- something he's always wanted to do.

The chart-topping star has partnered with designer Christian Cowan for a new fashion campaign: a spring collection featuring unisex wear. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Loveland Foundation, which supports Atlanta's Black LGBTQ community.

Kevin Kane/WireImageChristina Aguilera looked back over some of her greatest musical moments recently, including that infamous kiss with Madonna and Britney Spears at the 2003 MTV VMA Awards, and says that now, she wonders what all the fuss was about.

Christina tells Apple Music's Zane Lowe that she felt "left out" of the media firestorm that took place after the pop divas locked lips, but doesn't think it was such a big deal in retrospect.

"Shock value gets more and more extreme or whatever," she said. "But honestly, at the time, yeah, I never thought anything of it. It was like, ‘Okay, it's two girls kissing.'  It wasn't shocking back then.  It's not shocking now, to me.  But it's so many things."

Aguilera goes on to call Madonna "the queen of reinventing herself" and "a huge inspiration," in her career.

"When I was little, I was not allowed to listen to her or watch [Madonna's] videos or anything. It was just like a no-no," she recalls.  "But then whenever you grow up, and I discovered her catalog and her videos and the fact that she had such a message."

Madonna's penchant for reinvention is something the "Genie in a Bottle" singer now tries to do herself.

"Every single night, you're playing music, and I don't just play my music. I reinvent the old songs.  I put different spins on them, different twists, even what I'm inspired by as artists," she explained.

Last month, Christina returned with a new take on "Reflection," the song she originally recorded for the Disney animated film Mulan in 1998. The updated song appears on the live-action remake of the movie, which debuted September 4 on Disney .

Jason Merritt/Getty Images for Universal MusicJustin Bieber's new era in music has finally arrived with the release of his highly anticipated new single "Holy" featuring Chance the Rapper.

Bieber dropped his new song and accompanying music video, which stars Ryan Destiny, at the stroke of midnight on Friday.  The upbeat gospel single not only serves as a love letter to the person who can cure even the darkest of days with a touch but also promises that he's found the love of his life, even though people say they're both "too young."

"I don't do well with drama/ And no I can't stand it being fake/ I don't believe in nirvana/ But the way that we love in the night gave me life/ Baby, I can't explain," Bieber gently sings as the piano, tambourine and drums swell joyfully in the background.

The emotional music video details the story of a young couple who endure the worst day of their life.

Bieber loses his job and Destiny loses her favorite elderly patient -- but the hits keep coming as Bieber's truck breaks down and he's forced to walk home, arriving just as their screaming landlord smears an eviction notice on their door.

With only a couple of suitcases and the love they have for another to their name, they walk hand in hand into an uncertain future until a compassionate soldier in his Army fatigues, played by Wilmer Valderrama, pulls up next to them, saying he's "heading in the direction of a warm meal" and offers them a ride.

It's then revealed that Valderrama was discharged that day, as seen by his overjoyed kids who throw themselves into his open arms when he walks into his house -- reminding Bieber and Destiny there's still love in the world.

"Holy" is Justin's follow-up to "Intentions," featuring Quavo.

Atlantic RecordsAva Max's breakthrough single "Sweet But Psycho" came out waaay back in 2018, but we're only now getting her debut album Heaven & Hell today.  The singer admits that the project's "been a long time coming," and promises "a lot of surprises."

"Every song in the album is just a little bit different, it is all pop, but...I personally didn't want the album to be exactly the same, you know?" Ava tells ABC Audio.

"It's cohesive for sure, but I didn't want every song to be like the next," she notes. "So there are a lot of surprises on the album, and I can't wait to release it, I mean, it's been a long time coming. We've been working on it for two, three years."

The album, Heaven & Hell, features a "Heaven" side and a "Hell" side.  Among the songs are the current single "Kings & Queens," as well as the previous singles "Sweet But Psycho," "Salt," "Torn," and a couple of tracks she's just released in the last few weeks.

While Ava's thrilled to finally release the project, she's sorry that she can't hit the road to promote it.

"I do miss traveling and meeting my fans, so once that can happen again, I'm going to be really excited to hold my fans!" she gushes, noting that if the COVID-19 pandemic hadn't happened, "I probably would have been in Europe and Australia, probably around America, just traveling, doing shows."

"We had a lot of shows planned, so...maybe next year."

Aysia MarottaLewis Capaldi's hit "Before You Go" was inspired by his mother's reaction to his aunt's suicide.  While it's an intensely personal song, Lewis says a special bond has developed between himself and fans who've shared their own stories of similar experiences with him.

"People have kind of got in touch with stories about their family members who died of the same thing, and it's very...I keep using the word special..." the Grammy-nominated singer tells ABC News.

Lewis notes that it's very helpful for people who are going through something difficult or emotional to hear a song that perfectly captures what they've been feeling.

"I think sometimes with songs, it's nice to know -- and I get this as well listening to my favorite artists and stuff -- when I can't put what I'm feeling into words, it's nice to know that there's someone else out there who feels the same thing as you, and they've just written a song about it," the Scottish singer/songwriter explains.

"For me, when people come and they tell me their stories about their uncles or aunties, or mums or dads or grandparents or...brothers, sisters who have passed away from...suicide...we have this sort of weird kinda, I guess, bond, maybe?"

"It just feels like you're connecting on a bit of a different level 'cause it's such a personal thing," he admits. "So yeah, it's been lovely."

"Before You Go" recently became Lewis' second top 10 hit in the U.S.

Capitol RecordsFinally, we have a release date for Sam Smith's new album.

After postponing the release of the project earlier this year and saying the title To Die For would be changed, they've announced that the album, now titled Love Goes, will be out October 30.  The first single, "Diamonds," is out now, along with a video that features Sam dancing alone in an empty house, and then emerging from a stormy night to greet the morning sun.

The 17-track album was written over the course of the past two years.  In a statement, Sam said, "Every time I went into the studio I promised myself I would shoot for the stars and have no limitations…I am sorry it’s taken a while. But these unprecedented times gave me the room and space to fall in love with these songs all over again."

"After it all, I still believe love is the answer," they continued. "And with love in our hearts and kindness in our words and actions, we sing on.”

They added, "This album marks a time of experimentation and self discovery in my life. I wrote this from the age of 26-28 and it’s been one hell of a ride."

Love Goes is now available for pre-order; if you do so, you'll get five tracks instantly: "Diamonds," the smash hit "Dancing with a Stranger" and the previously released tracks "To Die For," "How Do You Sleep" and "My Oasis."

Love Goes is the follow-up to Sam's 2017 release The Thrill of It All.

Here's the track listing:

"Young"
"Diamonds"
"Another One"
My Oasis" (feat. Burna Boy)
"So Serious"

Djeneba AduayomWhen Lady Gaga released her latest album Chromatica, she sold combinations of albums and tickets to her planned Chromatica Ball world tour, only to see it put on hold due to COVID-19.  She tells Billboard that at this point, she doesn't see any point in planning the tour, but she's optimistic that it will take place...someday.

Speaking to Billboard, Gaga says, "I’m going to learn so much from now until the day somebody tells me you can effectively social distance at a stadium. When that day comes, I’m going to build a show that’s tailor-made with kindness."

"I’ve been through enough to tell you that even though we can’t go onstage now, I know we will," she predicts. "It’s painful, and it’s hard and scary, but I promise we won’t be six feet apart forever.”

When she does perform again, Gaga tells Billboard, she says the current conversations around social justice might inform her concerts -- but she's not sure how.

"To say that I would do it to make my show relevant? Absolutely not," she says, noting that she's against virtue signaling. "I would do it to make my show right. I would do it to make my show good.”

“When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy,” she tells Billboard. “I am in the process of learning and unlearning things I’ve been taught my whole life.”

"Do I think there’s such a thing as performative activism? Yes. Do I think there’s been true activism that’s been very important and needed? Yes," she continues. 

"Do I believe Black lives matter? Yes. Do I believe this is going to get louder? Yes. Do I believe it should? Yes.”

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicSelena Gomez has gotten a promotion for her next film.

Variety reports that the singer and actress will return for the fourth installment of the animated franchise Hotel Transylvania, but in addition to voicing Dracula's daughter Mavis, she'll also serve as executive producer on the project.

The first three films and a spinoff series feature Adam Sandler voicing Dracula, who owns a hotel for monsters.  The properties have earned over $1.3 billion worldwide.

Hotel Transylvania is scheduled to arrive August 6, 2021.

Lately, Selena's been doing more producing than acting, serving in that role for the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, the docuseries Living Undocumented and the movies The Broken Hearts Gallery and This Is the Year.  The latter film was directed by Selena's Wizards of Waverly Place co-star David Henrie.

The Rare Beauty mogul will next produce and star in Only Murderers in the Building, a Hulu movie with Steve Martin and Martin Short.

Capitol NashvilleAfter giving the song its TV premiere last night on the ACM Awards, Pink and Keith Urban have now released the socially distanced video for their duet "One Too Many," which you can now watch on Keith's Facebook page.

Pink filmed her part of the clip in Los Angeles, while Keith did his part in Sydney. Keith is shown floating on a couch in the middle of an ocean, with no one to keep him company except his guitars; Pink, meanwhile, is on a beach singing wistfully into the distance. 

As the two sing the duet -- about two partners who are struggling to communicate while one battles a drinking problem -- we see various other people floating in the ocean on couches and recliners, including couples and some buddies who are partying together.

While the two appear together in a few shots, that's only through the magic of editing.

At the end of the clip, Keith is standing on his couch playing a guitar solo, while Pink dances on the beach.

"One Too Many" is on Keith's new album The Speed of Now Part 1, which comes out on Friday.

CBS SUNDAY MORNINGIn a new interview airing this weekend on CBS Sunday Morning, Lady Gaga reveals that prior to releasing her album Chromatica, she considered suicide "every day"

Describing how she felt in the time leading up to writing the album, Gaga tells CBS' Lee Cowan, "I mean, honestly, Lee, I just totally gave up on myself. I hated being famous. I hated being a star. I felt exhausted and used up.”

Showing Cowan her piano, she says, "This ruined my life." 

Then, speaking directly to the piano, she says, "Look what you did. You can’t go to the grocery store now. Look what you did. If you go to dinner with your family, somebody comes to the table. You can’t have dinner with your family without it being about you. It’s always about you. All the time it’s about you.”

Gaga says during that dark time, and struggling with the PTSD she was suffering from due to her being sexually assaulted at age 19, "I really didn’t understand why I should live other than to be there for my family. That was an actual real thought and feeling.”

Asked directly if she thought about suicide, Gaga says, "Oh yeah, every day. Yeah, I lived in this house while people watched me for a couple of years, to make sure I was safe.”

However, there's a light at the end of the tunnel: Gaga says she's finally come to terms with her fame, with the support of friends like Elton John.

“I’m right here,” she says. “I don’t hate Lady Gaga anymore. I found a way to love myself again, even when I thought that was never going to happen.”

You can watch the whole interview with Sunday at 9 a.m. ET on CBS.

If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide, or worried about a friend or loved one, help is available. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 [TALK] for free confidential emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even if it feels like it, you are not alone.

ACMA2020/Getty Images for ACMIf Gwen Stefani's ex-husband ever doubted that Blake Shelton has completely replaced him in her life and in her heart, all he needs to do is look at the photo she posted last night on Instagram.

The picture shows a very young Gwen posing next to a photo of a young Blake. She's wearing what used to be her signature crop top and totally '90s makeup. Blake is shown with shoulder-length hair and a cowboy hat, neither of which he currently sports.

The caption reads, "#datenight @acmawards w my boo @blakeshelton gx." The couple performed on the ACM Awards Wednesday night.

But, as Billboard points out, the original photo featured Gwen and her former husband, Gavin Rossdale of Bush. The new pic features Blake's face Photoshopped over Gavin's. Gwen posted the original on Instagram in September of 2014, 11 months before she filed for divorce. The two were married for 13 years and have three sons. 

One fan commented, "Gavin is literally out the picture. Blake and you look adorable together."

But another fan noted, "Although you may try, you cannot erase history or the past. True 90s kids know Gavin is in the original pic. Smh."
