Sophie Muller / Courtesy of Warner Bros. RecordsTuesday night on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, you'll be able to see Bebe Rexha team up with superstar country duo Florida Georgia Line for a performance of their hit "Meant to Be."  While she'd never even head of FGL before their collabo, Bebe says she's now embracing the country music world with open arms.

"I have a newfound love for country music," she tells ABC Radio. "I went to one of Florida Georgia Line's shows, and it was like, 'Woah!' They are massive!" 

But it wasn't just the performance that impressed her -- it was the crowd.

"Seeing the fans, they're really respectful and chill and loving," Bebe notes.  As for the prospect of country fans now becoming fans of hers thanks to "Meant to Be," she says, "It's cool. I don't mind having country fans...it'll be awesome!"

Bebe also appreciates the country music world because, she says, it's nowhere near as cutthroat as the pop music world she's been working in for years.

"I love the community of...country writers," she explains. "There's really a sense of celebration and everything is not so, like, 'I'm gonna be bigger than you!' or 'I'm gonna have a bigger hit than you!'"

"It's just like, this song was really just written out of like a really pure place," she notes. " And it was cool. And I really love that."  

"Meant to Be" is #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, and #18 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Markus PritziDua Lipa is one of several rising stars featured in a short film that the Adidas Originals brand has commissioned for its 2018 spring campaign.

As Women's Wear Daily reports, the "New Rules" singer is one of 10 "creators" featured in the campaign, which is called "Original Is Never Finished."  It's based on the concept that "complacency is the death of creativity," according to the company.  Dua and the other stars were chosen to target the "slash" generation -- people who are famous for doing more than one thing. 

In addition to Dua, the film also features rappers Playboi Carti and A$AP Ferg, NBA player Nick Young, pro skateboarder Miles Silva and soccer player Marcelo Vieira.  It features an overview of the whole Adidas Originals season, including a variety of sneakers and apparel.  The film will debut on January 25.

In other news, Dua has been announced as the musical guest on the February 3 episode of Saturday Night Live.  Natalie Portman will host the episode.

Finally, Dua's hit "New Rules" has finally reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, after 25 weeks on the chart.

Harley WeirHarry Styles' small role in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk was well-received, but could the One Direction star portray one of filmdom's most iconic characters?

As the U.K. paper The Daily Star reports, Lee Smith, who edited the James Bond movie Spectre as well as Dunkirk, thinks Harry would make a great James Bond, even though he's only 23. 

According to the paper, at the Los Angeles Film Critics Awards, Smith said, "Harry could do it. If they wanted a younger Bond then why not? He has got it.” 

Harry seemingly has an inside track on the role because, the Daily Star reports, Nolan has been rumored to direct the next Bond film.  Daniel Craig is expected to star in that film, due in 2019, which means his replacement wouldn't appear until 2022.  At that point, Harry would be 28.  Smith thinks the singer could do it, even though he'd still be the youngest Bond ever.

"Harry is really good and he can go all the way. He is an exceptional talent and a complete natural on camera," Smith is quoted as saying.  "You would have thought you were dealing with a guy with many years of experience. You would never know that was his first film....he was really good and a genuinely charismatic fellow."

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesNot many people can say that they got honor someone they've admired since they were in diapers...literally.  Katy Perry, though, can now make that claim.

Katy helped welcome Minnie Mouse to the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, as the legendary mouse received her star, located in front of the El Capital Theater.  Shockingly, the honor came 40 years after Mickey Mouse received his, an oversight which Katy pointed out in her speech.

Addressing the crowd, Katy described just how far back she and Minnie go.  "Let me set the scene," she began. "Pastel walls, the scent of baby powder in the air.  I was maybe two or three years old. And into my peripheral vision came Minnie and Mickey Mouse-printed diapers!" 

"That was my very first memory ever," the American Idol judge continued. "And of course it turned into a lifelong devotion...it's something that has been a thread through my entire life, and rarely does a year goes by without us reuniting in one of her many magical castles." 

Calling Minnie an "icon," Katy -- who was wearing a red polka dot skirt and top and a huge floppy red hat with white polka dots -- also gave the Disney star props for her fashion sense.

"Her style is the epitome of fun fashion," noted Katy. "To this day, no one rocks a bow, the color red or a dot quite like her.  Trust me, I'm trying!"

She finished by noting, "So today, a brief 40 years after Mickey got his star, I'm delighted to honor Minnie and her magic with hers."

Danny ClinchNick Jonas is venturing into the fashion world with his latest collaboration.

The singer has teamed up with menswear designer John Varvatos, signing on as the new face of the brand’s spring/summer campaign and designing his own limited-edition capsule collection.

Nick says he hit it off with Varvatos right away.

“The human connection was so real because the friendship evolved in such a natural way, the next step was trying to make something great together,” he says in a statement. “Beyond just fashion and music and the tie-in there, we're thinking big picture about how do we influence the world in some way…”

The duo was inspired by Detroit, a city with musical history and the place where Varvatos spent his early life.

Says Nick: “I've had the chance to play some really iconic music venues there and I love the city, I love the people, and so we thought ‘Let's take a great American city and show some love, pay respect to so many musical icons and just great men and women that have come out of there.'"

The JV x NJ capsule collection includes a black Detroit “Rock City” t-shirt and hoodie, a grey linen tee, and a black moto jacket.

Dennie Leupold/SYCO/Epic RecordsAfter spending seven weeks at #2, Camila Cabello's "Havana" has finally hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.  That gives the former Fifth Harmony member both the #1 song and the #1 album in the country.  Her solo debut, Camila, debuted at #1 on the album chart.

This is Camila's first #1 hit. She'd previously reached #4 in Feburary of 2017 with "Bad Things," her duet with Machine Gun Kelly.  With Fifth Harmony, she also reached #4 in 2016 with "Work from Home."

The last artist who simultaneously topped both the Hot 100 and the album chart was Beyoncé, who did in 2003 with her single "Crazy In Love," and her album Dangerously in Love

But if you want to find an artist who topped the Billboard Hot 100 and album chart simultaneously without previously being #1 on either chart -- which Beyoncé had done with Destiny's Child -- you've got to go all the way back to 1999.  That's when Britney Spears did it with her album and song ...Baby One More Time.

Billboard notes that Camila also now has something in common with Zayn Malik.  Both were members of quintets formed on The X Factor and who, despite their popularity, never managed to hit #1.  But after both departed their respective groups, they went on to hit #1 on their own.

As you may recall, Zayn scored in 2016 with his debut album, Mind of Mine, and his single, "Pillowtalk."

George Pimentel/Getty ImagesIt’s still not clear when Avril Lavigne will be releasing her new album, but she’s giving us an idea of what we can expect from it.

After a fan tweeted Avril, asking her to describe her upcoming sixth studio release, the singer responded, “Personal, dear, intimate, dramatic, raw, powerful, strong and unexpected.”

She added, “This record is a true emotional journey.”

In August, Avril tweeted that new music would “be here before you know” and thanked fans for their patience, but she has yet to announce a release date. Her last album, Avril Lavigne, came out back in 2013.

Avril's new album will mark her first release on her new record label, BMG, and her first batch of new music since she was briefly sidelined after being diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2014.

Mark SurridgeWhen Ed Sheeran becomes a dad, will he hang up his guitar for good?

The newly-engaged singer tells U.K.’s Daily Star that he anticipates losing his passion for performing once he has children.

"My ambition is going to go to zero as soon as I have kids,” he says. “I am going to be like, 'I do not really care anymore as I have another life to take care of.’”

Ed’s prepared to switch up his priorities once that day comes -- and the clock is ticking. Ed, who's 26, has previously stated he’d like to start a family before he turns 30.

"It is totally understandable because you have children and your ambition shifts to be like, 'I want to be a good father,’” he says.

Ed admits he’s already losing his ambition because at this point he's achieved way more than he ever thought he would.  "My ambition next is a silly small ambition to write a country music song that goes to number one on country radio in America,” he says.

Ed announced his engagement to Cherry Seaborn over the weekend, writing on Instagram, “We are very happy and in love.”

Alasdair McLellanSince her tour wrapped up last year, Adele hasn't been seen in public much, but she was out and about over the weekend at the Women's March in LA, along with two A-List pals: Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lawrence.

On Instagram, Adele posted a photo of herself with the actresses, along with a lengthy caption. "The most influential people in my life have always been women," Adele wrote. "My family, my friends, my teachers, my colleagues, and my idols. I am obsessed with all the women in my life. I adore them and need them more and more every day."

"I am so grateful to be a woman, I wouldn't change it for the world. I hope I'm not only defined by my gender though," Adele added.  "I hope I'm defined by my input to the world, my ability to love and to have empathy. To raise my son to be a a good man alongside the good man who loves me for everything I am and am not."

Adele closed by writing, "I want what's best for people, I think we all do. We just can't agree on what that is. Power to the peaceful, power to the people."

On Twitter and Instagram, Adele recently paid tribute to two female idols of hers: Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, who died on January 15 at age 46, and Celine Dion, whose concert Adele apparently attended recently.

InterscopePhillip Phillips's new album Collateral is out now. For the past three years, the American Idol champ was tied up in a legal battle against Idol’s parent company, 19 Entertainment, and wasn't allowed to release any music.  But there was silver lining: He says in a weird way, it helped his marriage.

Phillip married his longtime girlfriend Hannah in October of 2015, while the suit was in progress, and at first, it was rough because he essentially had nothing to do.  "It was a lot of just sitting at home," he tells ABC Radio. 

"I'd go write for like a week or two, and then come home...and then be like, 'All right, we're gettin' freakin' bored,'" he recalls. "Everyone says, 'Your first year's tough'...It was tough, but we got to know each other even better."

"I think that first year...to have that time off...we learned a lot about ourselves and about our relationship," he adds. "I think it kinda helped!"

But during that time, Phillip was also struggled with songwriting. 

"I was having to really search within myself and push to overcome all that...I wasn't really inspired," he tells ABC Radio.  But he eventually got his mojo back, and he's now relieved that he can share his new music with fans.

"It's good to have these feelings out," he notes. "It's kinda like you write in a journal or something...and you don't let anybody read it."

And from what he's heard so far, his fans are happy to have him back.

"They said it's been worth the wait...so it's just awesome," Phillip says. "I was a little nervous 'cause it's been so long...I said, 'Man I'm hopin' people don't forget.'  So yeah, this seems like they've been waiting, so it's good!"

Ruven AfanadorThinking about what your own funeral will be like is pretty morbid, but Sam Smith evidently wants to make sure that his will be quite the party.  He says he's already planned it, and he promises, "It's gonna be fabulous."

During Sam's appearance on the Australian TV show The Project, one of the anchors joked that Sam's music is so heartbreaking that if Sam died, and they played his own music at the funeral, it'd be the saddest thing ever.  Sam responded to that by saying, "No, my funeral's gonna be, like, disco music!"

"Yeah, I've already planned my funeral, it's gonna be fabulous," he continued.  When one of the anchors asked if he could tell them any of the details, Sam replied, "No, it's actually quite explicit!  But, there's gonna be a lot of drag queens!"

Sam also talked about how weird it is when he looks out into the audience at his concerts and spots a big star there.  "Definitely a few times I've had that," he said.  "Seeing Kim K[ardashian] at my show was quite weird...and Chaka Khan!  Ohmigod, I freaked out!"

As the anchors laughed, Sam added, "I was in L.A., and she gave me this fan that had 'Chaka' in diamonds on it!  It's incredible."

The interview ended with one anchor asking Sam when he realized he had an incredible voice.  Sam argued that he doesn't think he does, in fact, have such a great voice.

"I have a really tough time with my voice sometimes," he admitted. "Every time that I think I sing the worst, people tell me that it's the best that I've sang. So I don't know anymore.  I just like the way it feels -- I don't like the way it sounds, sometimes.  It's bad, I know!"

On Sunday in Limerick, Ireland, thousands of fans turned out to pay their respects to Cranberries singer Dolores O'Riordan, who died suddenly on January 15 at the age of 46.  The cause of death is currently unknown.

According to the Irish Times, fans from as far away as Spain and China stood in line to mourn the singer, whose body lay in an open coffin during a four-hour public reposing at St. Joseph's Church in Limerick. 

Her mother Eileen and her six siblings accompanied Dolores' coffin into the church, which had been decorated with photos of her performing on stage, and photos of her meeting with the late Pope John Paul II.

Fifty of O'Riordan's former schoolmates each carried a single daffodil into the church and placed them on the altar. There was also a floral arrangement from her Cranberries bandmates Noel and Mike Hogan and Fergal Lawlor, which read, "The song has ended, but the memories linger on."

On Monday, Dolores' body will be transferred to a funeral home, and her funeral mass will be held Tuesday.  She'll be buried next to her father, Terry.

On Friday, The Guardian reported that a postmortem examination had been conducted on the singer, but the coroner adjourned the inquest hearing until April 3, at which time it will be determined when to release the results of the autopsy.

SYCO/Epic RecordsOoh na-na! Camila Cabello's debut solo album Camila has debuted at #1 on the Billboard album chart.

According to Billboard, that makes the former Fifth Harmony member the first woman in three years to top the chart with a debut album. The last woman to do it was Meghan Trainor in 2015, with Title.  Camila's album, which features the smash hit "Havana," sold 119,000 units in its first week, better than expected.

Camila is also one of a handful of women who initially charted with a group before going on to hit #1 with a solo album.  Those women include, among others, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, Lauryn Hill, Stevie Nicks and Diana Ross.  With Fifth Harmony, Camila had three top 10 releases.

Finally, Camila is the youngest woman to debut at #1 with her first full-length album since 2013, when Ariana Grande did it with Yours Truly.  Camila is 20 years and 10 months old.  Ariana was 20 years and two months old.

ABC/Paula LoboAt the New York Women's March on Saturday, Halsey delivered a poem in which she detailed a litany of sexual assault and abuse that she's suffered over the years...even, she said, after she became famous.

"This was really hard for me to do but I’m glad I did it," she tweeted later. "Thank you guys. This is why we rally."

Halsey told the crowd, "I don't really how to do a speech unless it rhymes so I'm gonna do a little poem for you guys."  She then recited the poem, "A Story Like Mine," which began with a description of going to a Planned Parenthood clinic at age 14 with her best friend, who'd been raped.

It then detailed Halsey herself over the years, being abused as a child, having non-consensual sex with a boyfriend, performing after having a miscarriage, and being assaulted by a man she "trusted," as recently as last year.

Halsey also shouted out the female Olympians who spoke out against the doctor who abused them all, as well as other women who've spoken out about sexual misconduct.  Here's the text of that portion:

"It's 2018 and I've realized nobody is safe long as she is alive
And every friend that I know has a story like mine
And the world tells me we should take it as a compliment
But then heroes like Ashley and Simone and Gabby, McKayla and Gaga, Rosario, Aly
Remind me this is the beginning, it is not the finale
And that's why we're here
And that's why we rally
It's Olympians and a medical resident and not one f***ing word from the man who is President."

Halsey finished saying, "There is work to be done/There are songs to be sung/Lord knows there's a war to be won."

Read the full speech here.

ABC/Paula LoboIf someone wrote a song like "Perfect" about you, you'd say yes if they asked you to marry them, right?

Ed Sheeran announced on Instagram that he and his longtime girlfriend Cherry Seaborn are engaged.  He posted a photo of himself hugging and kissing Cherry, and wrote in the caption, "Got myself a fiancée just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed [pleased] as well xx."

Ed, who's 26, and Cherry, 24, have known each other since they were 11 years old, and went to high school together.  They reconnected and started dating in 2015 after he invited her to Taylor Swift's 4th of July party in Rhode Island.

Last year, Ed said he and Cherry had moved in together and acquired two cats, Calipo and Dorito. He told Ellen DeGeneres in December that Cherry had to take care of him like a baby after he injured himself in a bike accident.

"I couldn’t cut my food, wash, open doors, like I was really, really dependent on Cherry for like the whole thing...for at least a month," he said.

No word on when the wedding will take place: Ed's got a world stadium tour planned for this year.

Mert & MarcusWhen two Swifties tie the knot, Taylor Swift knows just how to mark the occasion.

People magazine reports that on January 12, two huge Taylor fans named Alexas "Lexi" Gonzales and Brittany Lewis got married in Dickinson, Texas. The two had been together for nine years, and Taylor's 2008 hit "Love Story" was "their song."  In fact, Brittany even quoted the song's lyrics when she proposed in 2016.

Taylor learned of the impending nuptials and sent the happy couple flowers as well as a personalized note, which Lexi shared on Twitter.  It reads, "Lexi & Brittany, you have no idea how honored I am that ‘Love Story’ has been such a big part of your beautiful love story. I’m absolutely thrilled that Lexi said YES! Have the most magical wedding day and hopefully I can meet you both soon! Love, Taylor.”

Photo by Andy EarlIt appears that it'll be a while before the public learns the cause of Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan's death.

O'Riordan was found dead on Monday, January 15, in a hotel room in London. The 46-year-old singer was in town to record guest vocals for a cover of the Cranberries hit "Zombie" by the hard rock band Bad Wolves.

According to The Guardian, a postmortem examination has already been conducted, but coroner Shirley Radcliffe adjourned the inquest hearing until April 3, at which time it will be determined when to release the results of the autopsy.

However, Rolling Stone reports that there's a chance O’Riordan's family may be informed of the results before the April hearing, and that they would then have the option of releasing the findings to the public at an earlier date.

Meanwhile, O'Riordan will be buried in Ireland alongside her father at Caherelly Cemetery in County Limerick, on Tuesday, January 23, according to People magazine.

The BBC reports that the burial will be preceded that day by a private funeral at the Church of St. Ailbe in Ballybricken, County Limerick. A public service will be held Sunday at Saint Joseph's Church in the city of Limerick.

Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesSelena Gomez’s mom may not be a fan of Justin Bieber, but Justin’s own mom is “so proud” of her son.

In an Instagram post, Patti Mallette heaped praise on Justin, writing, "I'm so proud of the amazing young man you are, and the young man you are becoming.”

She added that while “none of us are perfect,” she admires his “character and integrity” and the choices he’s been making daily.

“You are maturing beautifully and wise beyond your years,” she continued. “You are so funny that I find myself laughing out loud when I'm alone, remembering...something you said or did. And your heart is gold. I love you to the moon and back."

His mom concluded, "Ps. Did I mention I was proud of you?"

She included a photo of the two of them on a boat.

Her words come after Selena’s mom, Mandy Teefey, told Gossip Cop she’s “not happy” that her daughter is dating Justin again.
