Music notes: Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and more

Harry Styles is an uncle! His older sister, Gemma Styles, announced the arrival of her newborn daughter on Instagram on Friday. "Hello from maternity leave! Took some time off to ensure the safe arrival of our baby girl, who is adored by her whole family," Gemma captioned her post. "I know that this news can be difficult for many people and I’m sending you lots of love."

The men in Taylor Swift's life interacted with her fans during her Eras Tour concert in Sydney, Australia, on Friday. Travis Kelce passed out guitar picks to several concertgoers, as captured in footage posted to social media, while Taylor's father, Scott Swift, gave sandwiches and fruit to those seated near the concert's VIP area. In fan-recorded video, Scott can be heard telling the fans to "help yourselves" to a tray of food.

Speaking of Taylor, PETA has made a statement about her two trips to the Sydney Zoo while in Australia. “While we understand all too well the appeal of seeing Australia’s wildlife, PETA hopes that next time Taylor and Travis want to see wild animals, they’ll spend their time and money at a true sanctuary,” Debbie Metzler, PETA Foundation's director of captive animal welfare, told TMZ on Thursday.

Ellie Goulding and her husband of 4 1/2 years, Caspar Jopling, have broken up.

The singer announced the news on her Instagram Story on February 23, writing, "In light of recent stories, I feel I have been left with no choice but to let you all know that Caspar and I privately separated some time ago."

"We remain the closest of friends and have been successfully co-parenting with our son's best interests at heart," she added. The couple share son Arthur, who's 2 1/2.

"We are committed to protecting our family privacy and thank people in advance for respecting our wishes - we won't be commenting further. Thank you," the statement concluded.

She also posted Caspar's statement, in which he reiterated that he and Ellie had decided to split "some time ago" and that "immediate family and close friends" knew about it. He also repeated Ellie's comment that they "remain the closest of friends and, most importantly, 'co-parents' to the best kiddo in the world, Arthur. This is the last I want to say on this."

Jopling, 32, an art dealer, and Ellie, 37, tied the knot in 2019 at a lavish wedding in North Yorkshire, England, that was attended by Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Blunt and his wife, actress Sienna Miller, Princess Eugenie and Eugenie's mom, Sarah, Duchess of York.

Norman Jean Roy

Jennifer Lopez's twins, Max and Emme, turned 16 on February 22, and to mark the milestone, their mom gave them a trip to Japan.

JLo took to Instagram on February 23 to share a video of her and the kids on their getaway. The "Can't Get Enough" singer is seen alongside Max and Emme as they enjoy a tea ceremony, eat ramen and sushi, attend an immersive digital art installation, visit temples and, um, cuddle baby pigs.

The twins are also each pictured with fan-favorite anime characters from Pokémon and One Piece.

"Happy birthday to my coconuts," Jennifer wrote at the end of the video. "I love you."

Lopez's song "Hummingbird," off her new album, This Is Me… Now, plays in the background. "'Cause you help me be the best version of me/ And all I wanna do is help you be the best version of you," she sings in the song.

Jennifer, who's married to Ben Affleck, shares Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Earlier this week, Jennifer added second shows in Miami, Toronto and New York City to her This Is Me ... Now tour, which kicks off June 26 in Orlando, Florida.

Miley Cyrus' 'Drive-Away Dolls' cameo:

Miley Cyrus' 'Drive-Away Dolls' cameo: "She's ... game for anything"

Focus Features

Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in director Ethan Coen's new road movie Drive-Away Dolls, and it's her first time back on the big screen in a live-action role in years.

“She is so much fun. [Exactly] what you would imagine. A real pro,” Coen told The Wrap.

Drive-Away Dolls is about two gay women who embark on a cross-country road trip. According to Screen Rant, Miley's character, Tiffany Plastercaster, is only seen in psychedelic interludes. She's based on a real person named Cynthia Plaster Caster, a legendary '60s groupie who became famous for making plaster molds of rock stars', um, junk.

"That’s her thing, too. She’s into that, both the retro hippie thing and the whole ... molding thing," Coen told The Wrap. "Miley loves her d****."

Tricia Cooke, the movie's co-writer and editor, added that Miley knew all about Cynthia Plaster Caster before she got the role.

"I was telling her about Cynthia Plaster Caster, ‘I don’t know if you know. Your character’s based on Cynthia,’" Cooke tells The Wrap. "She’s like, ‘I thought that’s why you called me.’ Big fondness for Cynthia Plaster Caster. She’s also just game for anything, whatever you ask her to do."

Coen added, "At 29 years old, she’s — I mean it in the best sense — like an old show-business broad. ‘Yeah, whatever, honey. All you need.’”

USA Today made headlines last year by announcing it was hiring a reporter just to cover Taylor Swift. A legendary London museum is doing something similar.

The Victoria & Albert Museum, which focuses on art, design and performance, is looking to hire five superfan advisors — experts in specific niche subjects — to teach the museum "more about our collection at the V&A as well as the current cultural trends that will inform the future of museum collecting." One of the advisors the museum wants is a Taylor Swift expert.

The museum says in the job description, "Successful candidates will meet curatorial experts at the V&A, share knowledge about their specialist subject, learn about the history of these objects and why they are relevant to art, design and the future of creativity."

"Candidates will also have the chance to go behind the scenes at the V&A to view relevant items from the collection," the description continues. "The V&A will cover reasonable travel costs to the museum for the curatorial meeting, and successful candidates will receive a V&A Membership as part of the role."

There's no word on how much this job pays, or how long it will last. The description says, "Insights from the sessions with our curatorial team may be used to develop future programming at the museum."

The other superfan advisors the museum is looking for are experts in Crocs, emojis, drag and tufting, which is a textile manufacturing process.

You have until March 7 to apply.

"We loved combining these worlds so we could experience music on a whole other level," she added. "Feels like this was meant to be. Immersive experiences with art I think really leave an imprint on the soul and it changes the texture of how we experience pop culture. I love Fortnite*. Monsters enjoy!"

One artist who accepted the invitation is Kesha, who posted her journey through the game on X, formerly Twitter.

Selena Gomez says she's

Selena Gomez says she's "grown" through her "really lovely" relationship

Courtesy Apple Music

Selena Gomez's new single "Love On" is a flirty come-on of a song, and she says it expresses how happy she is in her life right now.

She tells Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe, "I was inspired a lot by living in Paris, that for two months I had to work there, and I loved just the quality of life and how romantic it felt. And then to kind of feel really happy in my life and actually mean it is so ... it's just like, you can tell in my video, I'm just smiling the whole time. It's such a good feeling."

"I want people to feel good when they listen to it. That's what I want to hear on the radio now," she adds.

Fans speculate that one scene in the video, which shows a couple kissing behind a line of laundry, is actually a shot of Selena smooching her boyfriend, Benny Blanco. While you can't see the two people in the scene, which comes about 55 seconds into the video, you can see the shadows of their hair, and they seem to match Selena and Benny's hairstyles.

While she didn't specifically talk about Benny in the interview with Zane, Selena did say of her relationship, "I think it's just really important to meet someone that respects you. And I think it's really nice to also lean on someone who understands the world that I live in."

She notes, "But I'd have to say overall it's the safest that I feel and it's been really lovely and I've only grown through it, so it's awesome."

Benny commented "omg !!!!!" on Selena's post showing off the fashions she wears in the video. Last month, she posted a photo of herself hugging him and captioned it, "My bes fwend."

Taylor Swift plays Sydney after weather-related evacuation, announces bonus track

Taylor Swift plays Sydney after weather-related evacuation, announces bonus track

Don Arnold/TAS24/[SOURCE] for TAS Rights Management

Taylor Swift's first show in Sydney, Australia was plagued by bad weather, but it eventually went on.

The show's start time was delayed due to rain, and according to the Sydney Herald, the floor and the lower part of Accor Stadium had to be evacuated due to a nearby lighting strike. The late start time meant that opening act Sabrina Carpenter's set was cut, but she came back later to sing with Taylor during the "surprise songs" set.

When the show began, Taylor acknowledged the weather, according to the Herald, telling the crowd, "We have a little bit of a weather situation, a little bit of rain but I have never known an Aussie crowd that let anything get in the way!”

According to a social media post, during the surprise songs segment, Taylor revealed an alternate cover for her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department, and announced that the vinyl includes an exclusive bonus track called "The Albatross." She also raved about the Sydney Zoo, which she's visited twice so far. “I don’t think you guys understand how cool kangaroos really are," she gushed. "They are so cool, so strong, so bouncy.”

Taylor's boyfriend Travis Kelce was at the show, along with Taylor's dad Scott. Also spotted in the stands were Katy Perry and British singer/actress Rita Ora. On Instagram, Katy posted a photo of herself hugging Taylor, with the caption, "got to see an old friend shine tonight." The two technically buried the hatchet back in 2019, but it appears there's still no "Bad Blood."

Meanwhile, Taylor's made history on the Australian charts. Billboard reports that her albums currently occupy seven of the top 10 spots on the ARIA Albums chart -- a feat no other artist has ever accomplished.

Selena in the South of France: Watch her flirty new video for "Love On"

Interscope

You've heard of Emily in Paris? Get ready for Selena in the South of France. Selena Gomez has just released her first single of 2024, "Love On," and the video features beautiful French vistas, gorgeous clothing and lots of people making out with each other.

The song is Selena's invitation to a lover: "Clock in, baby get to work/I’m a rollercoaster ride, baby jump on."  The second verse is half-sung, half-spoken, with Selena asking "Why we conversing over this steak tartare/when we could be somewhere other than here/making out in the back of a car?"

The video begins with a group of couples lined up on a staircase, all kissing each other passionately, as we hear someone whisper in French, "What am I going to name you? I will name you love. Tender love." Doors then open onto a balcony of a grand hotel overlooking the sea, where Selena sings while getting her nails done.

The rest of the clip features Selena frolicking in and out of rooms rocking some fabulous outfits, including a white tutu-style dress she wears while dancing with ballerinas, a rainbow-striped '60s-style number and a gold gown with a giant rosette on the front. In between shots of Selena, the couples from the beginning of the clip continue making out with each other.

In the comments section of the video, one user wrote, "I was one of the ballerinas in this video and I just wanted to say that everything about the video shoot was an absolutely magical experience!! Selena was so charming and humble, yet shined with star-power and I feel infinitely lucky to have been a part of this celebration of love."

Normani says debut album represents

Normani says debut album represents "everything I’ve gone through to get to this moment"

Photo by Emma McIntyre/WireImage for Parkwood

Normani's debut album, DOPAMINE, may put an end to fans' inquiries about new music, but it has a deeper meaning for the singer.

“It feels like a representation of everything I’ve gone through to get to this moment,” Normani says in a cover feature for Who What Wear. “I know I needed time, experiences, and space coming out of [Fifth Harmony] in order to become the version of myself I needed to be. Without [all of that], I would not be able to exist within the creative space that I am in now. I would not be able to make the type of music I’m making now.”

With certain expectations placed on her, Normani says she sometimes finds herself thinking, "Is what everybody is saying true? Did I miss my moment? Did I wait too long? Do they still care?” She notes the self-doubt stems from the pressure she put on herself growing up "to be the absolute best that I could possibly be to be seen, heard, recognized, and acknowledged." 

Now, Normani's "on a quest to be able to recognize that all that I am is actually enough." Understanding the healing power of her music also helps her silence the noise.

As Normani revealed, her parents started cancer treatments when she set out on her solo career, leading her to say, “F*** all of this. This is bigger than the music ... This is life or death."

Though she "always wanted to be there for them," "pushing through made the circumstances of the last few years feel a bit lighter for my parents.”

“It was in those moments with my parents that made me realize that I have an opportunity to make an impact in this lifetime,” Normani said.

Makes me ill: Justin Timberlake cancels London concert due to flu

Charlotte Rutherford

Justin Timberlake has been forced to cancel his one-off free show at London's Roundhouse, which was set to take place on February 23.

"This is an unfortunate video to have to send out," Justin said in a video posted to his Instagram Story. "I am not gonna be able to make it to the show on Friday, which I'm gutted about. I've been here in London all week, and was so excited to perform ... but as you may or may not know, I've been batting some kind of bug and ... it just took a turn for the worse."

Justin went on to explain that he was able to "power through" taping an appearance on the popular U.K. talk show The Graham Norton Show, but added, "This morning I woke up just feeling worse than ever."

Noting that he hopes he'll be able to make it up to his English fans in the future, he closed out by saying, "For now, I feel terrible, so I hope none of you get this flu. That's what I have to say to all of you. Thanks. Love you guys, see you next time."

Justin's new single "Drown" is still set to arrive on Friday.

In January 2024, Olivia told Variety that she'd want to sing with Noah, describing him as "so great" and "very inspiring." Responding to a video of Olivia making the comments, Noah posted, "Anytime friend!!"

Watch Ed Sheeran voice Pokémon characters

Watch Ed Sheeran voice Pokémon characters

ABC/Eric McCandless

When Ed Sheeran was in Japan not long ago, he didn't just play concerts: he also got to fulfill a childhood fantasy.

Most fans of Ed know that he loves Pokémon. In 2021, he did an in-game performance as part of Pokémon Go, and in 2022, he wrote a song called "Celestial" for the end credits of the video games Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. On Instagram Thursday he revealed that while he was in Japan, he got to provide the voices for some of his favorite Pokémon characters.

In the video, he's seen recording the voices — well, not voices, more like sounds and occasional words — for Pokémon characters like Pikachu, Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charizard and Snorlax.

Explaining in 2022 why he's such a fan of the Japanese media franchise, Ed wrote on Facebook, "I really really love it. It gave me a proper escape as a kid into a fantasy world that seemed to go on and on, and in adult life it’s nostalgia that makes me feel like a kid again."

'Rolling Stone' names Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Beyoncé most stylish musicians of 2024

Tyrone Lebon

Fashion industry experts have voted and the results are in: Dua Lipa and Doja Cat are among the most stylish musicians of 2024, according to Rolling Stone.

The mag praises Dua for her "elegant yet down-to-earth" style, which you can see in her videos for "Houdini" and "Dance the Night." As for Doja, she's recognized for her "daring" fashion choices, like walking a red carpet covered in 30,000 red crystals, sporting diamond "fangs" in her video for "Demons" or promoting her album by covering herself in blood.

Also on the list is Madonna, who's applauded for her "timelessness" and for using fashion "as part of her storytelling." "Madonna has changed fashion for decades now," notes Rolling Stone.

Beyoncé makes the list for the fashion featured on her Renaissance tour, including what the New York Times called an "instantly iconic" flesh-toned catsuit with black-gloved hands wrapped around it.

Other stars on the list include Cardi B, A$AP RockyPharrell, Troye Sivan, Bad Bunny, Doechii and Lil Uzi Vert. A$AP Rocky's partner Rihanna isn't on the list and neither is Taylor Swift, whose impact on fashion is such that nearly every time she wears something, it instantly sells out.

It seems Taylor Swift has found her favorite place in Sydney, Australia. For the second day in a row, she visited the city's zoo, but this time she had her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, with her.

According to Australia's 9 News, Travis arrived in Sydney via private jet early Thursday morning and went right to Crown Towers, the swanky hotel in Sydney's Barangaroo area where Taylor's been staying since her arrival. The two then enjoyed an after-hours visit to the zoo with some of her dancers.

At the zoo, the couple was seen kissing and walking arm-in-arm while meeting koalas and hand-feeding kangaroos.

Taylor has four concerts at Accor Stadium in Sydney starting on Friday, and will then head to Singapore. No word on whether or not Travis will follow her there.

Camila Cabello says new music is about feeling

Camila Cabello says new music is about feeling "really confused, lonely and small and weird"

MEGA/GC Images

Camila Cabello has been teasing new music, and if fans are wondering if any of it might be inspired by her ex-boyfriend Shawn Mendes, she may have given us a bit of a hint in a new interview.

In an interview with Puss Puss magazine — yes, that's what it's called, we swear — Camila says that at least one of her songs is about "me sitting with this feeling of understanding that I feel really confused as a 26-year-old who really felt I was in love with this person." 

She doesn't say who that person is, but she and Shawn, who first broke up in 2021, apparently rekindled their relationship in April 2023 before breaking it off again.

Camila tells the magazine, "Now I feel kind of lonely and small and weird, but at the same time, I’m an adult and I feel so strong in other areas of my life, but not this one. There’s just the wrestling of those feelings without it being kind of neat or in a box."

"You can’t really say that it’s a sad song, you can’t really pin it down. It’s just kind of me wrestling with these feelings and me kind of being really present on a particular feeling and exploring it," she adds. "I feel like a lot of songs on the album are that.”

Camila says along with love, a theme of her new album is "a kind of reinvention," which goes along with her new blond hair.

“I feel like I needed to have a different physical appearance," she explains. "Something different to kind of help me channel that energy that I accessed in my songwriting voice more.”

No word yet on when the new music will arrive.
