Since addressing his sexuality in his love triangle-themed “Leave Your Lover” video (it was already a fairly open secret), Sam Smith has largely avoided talking about his love life or gay issues in general — apart from slamming hook-up apps like Grindr and Tinder. In a recent interview with Digital Spy, the cherub-faced crooner opened up a little about his journey but is adamant that he doesn’t want to be a community spokesman.

“I was worried,” the 22-year-old admits about coming out publicly. “I didn’t give the public enough credit. We were really panicky about it, but then as soon as we did it, I am just so proud of how people haven’t reacted. People really just don’t give a shit.” Sam believes his success is a milestone of sorts. “I feel like it’s a step forward — we’re in uncharted territory at the moment where you say it [ie. that you're gay] before an album and it’s all natural and okay. It’s great.”

The “Stay With Me” hitmaker believes his sexuality hasn’t affected his career because of how he has presented himself. “I’m not trying to be a spokesperson. It sounds awful of me, but I’m really just trying to live my life and write music about it,” he said. “That’s what I do. I’m not trying to heal the world. From a young age I’ve always been like this, so it’s been normal.” More »

Nicole Scherzinger Spent Her Labor Day On A Yacht: See The Sexy Bikini Pics

Nicole Scherzinger spent her Labor Day (September 1) sailing around Ibiza on a yacht. It presented the perfect opportunity for her to model a sexy striped bikini and ramp up the hype for her new single “On The Rocks”, which everyone seems to hate apart from me. I mean, she sings about photoshopping her ex out of pictures. What’s not to love?

Apart from looking ridiculously good and releasing great songs that haven’t performed as well as they should have, Nicole has been busy putting the finishing touches on her sophomore LP. It was entirely produced by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart and will be released in the US via Epic Records. There’s no word yet if “On The Rocks” is the official lead single over here but it seems likely. See the former Pussycat Dolls diva’s bikini beautiful pics after the jump. More »

It’s probably for the best that Maroon 5 know a thing a thing or two about “Maps,” because they’re about to be traveling all over the world next year.

Following the release of their latest studio album this week, V (have you streamed the album?), the troupe is now plotting to head across the world next year in support of their new record. The tour will begin in Dallas, TX and extend through several countries in Europe, including the UK, Italy, Spain and Portugal.

And they’re not heading out alone, either: “Rude” summer hit-makers MAGIC! will also be heading out on tour with the band, as well as Rozzi Crane (in the US) and Nick Gardner (in Europe). Tickets go on sale on September 13.

The Veronicas Will Release Their Comeback Single Later This Week

They're (Almost) Back!
The Veronicas signed a new record deal with Sony. Yay. Read More »

After years of setbacks (a drawn-out label dispute, an indie-phase & now a new deal with Sony), The Veronicas will return with new music later this week. The Aussie twins, who are best-known stateside for their surprise 2009 hit “Untouched”, announced their comeback with a tweet that simply stated “3 days…”. Commence crying and shaking now.

It will be fascinating to hear what the duo serves up after their extended hiatus. The Veronicas’ last release — 2012′s Australia only single “Lolita” — was a mental electro-pop anthem with a massive dub-step breakdown but the material they have teased recently (like “Sugar Daddy”) sounds darker and more organic. The sisters’ two LPs still hold up remarkably well, so I’m confident their new tune will be worth the wait. See Jess and Lisa’s tweet after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea Has Mad Basketball Skills: Watch Her Fancy Trick Shot

Iggy Azalea has been dating NBA player Nick Young since late 2013, so it makes sense that the Australian rapper would pick up a couple of on-court tricks. Over the weekend Swaggy P (the basketball star’s nickname) uploaded a video of the always “Fancy” diva shooting a hoop and it has to be said she has impressive skills.

The 24-year-old hitmaker has been taking a well-earned rest since performing at the recent MTV Video Music Awards. Rita Ora-assisted smash “Black Widow” just reached a new peak of number six on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, so a new round of promo can’t be too far away. I wonder if the rumored re-release of The New Classic is still happening. It’s not like the original is lacking in potential hits. See Iggy’s trick shot after the jump. More »
