Rihanna has offered a taste of what her new album will sound like — “FourFiveSeconds,” featuring Kanye West and Paul McCartney.

Coming from the Unapologetic diva, known for churning out urban dance-pop hits like clockwork, and the Yeezus rapper, who matched his impassioned raps with ’90s industrial rock tendencies on his last album — an acoustic guitar duet about workingman’s blues was the last thing that we expected. Yet here it is, with Rihanna’s voice sounding as resilient and West’s as tender as can be. More »

Here's our Pop Music Wishlist, inspired by Gwen Stefani and Fergie's return to music.

Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage just short of its six-year anniversary. “It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time,” a rep for Moore said to Us Weekly.

The 'ARTPOP' diva gets Little Monsters pumped with this selfie -- but what could it mean?

Lady Gaga ended 2014 by hitting the studio with acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren, best known for her power ballads. Now, a month later, the resulting collaboration has made its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Their new song, “Till It Happens to You,” appears in Kirby Dick‘s The Hunting Ground, a documentary that exposes the troubling rape culture at college campuses nationwide.

While “Till It Happens to You” hasn’t surfaced online yet, Lady Gaga and Warren did exchange some lyrics on Twitter, to give fans an idea of what to expect — “Till it happens to you, you don’t know how it feels,” and “Till your world burns and crashes, till [you're] at the end, the end of your rope.” In her review, The Hollywood Reporter‘s Leslie Felperin says that the song “provides an extra jolt of poignancy” in the film.

Glee co-creator Ryan Murray's next show is a horror anthology.

With the grand finale of the series getting closer every week, the writing on Glee has gone from whimsical to downright wacky in tone. For those of you wondering what the show has been desperately in need of, it’s more Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). And this week, the musical series definitely delivers. Sue’s crowning moment is a solo that has her head popping out of lockers and file drawers. And I say that after also having seen robot drones with high definition cameras float through the halls of McKinley High on this show. More »

Meghan Trainor sings of being lovesick in her upcoming duet with One Direction‘s Harry Styles, titled “London Lights” — at least, in the snippet she performed recently at Capital FM Breakfast.

“Saying that you love that I got hazel eyes / and honestly, I won’t catch up on sleep tonight / I’ve been looking at London lights and missing you,” Trainor sings to a gentle ukulele melody. The winning pop songwriter calls the song “cute,” but fittingly there’s also a twinge of sadness in her voice. More »
