:: Justin Timberlake is at least now talking about music. The star on Wednesday (September 18) said making an album is “a really big deal…when I do sit down and decide to do it, it’s just a special thing.” He added, “I don’t know that I can pump them out every year.” [Billboard]

:: We already know that Lady Gaga collaborated with Kendrick Lamar on “PARTYNASEOUS,” but in a recent interview the rapper nonchalantly mentioned that there’s more than one song. Addressing the collabo, he said “it’s supposed to move people and move people to be their own individuals and that’s what I love the most about it. [“PARTYNAUSEOUS is”] one of them, we did a few.” [Complex]

:: Shakira is pregnant! The 35-year-old Colombian singer and her footballer beau Gerard Pique are expecting their first child. Shakira canceled her upcoming performances “to give priority to this unique moment.” But what about The Voice?! [Pink Is The New Blog]

:: Cyndi Lauper‘s memoir includes an anecdote in which she claims Bruce Springsteen gave her a dirty look at a record industry seder back in the day. She was complaining about feeling marginalized as a woman at the dinner, and the Boss allegedly unleashed the stink eye. [Time]

:: British girl group The Saturdays have yet to release music in America, but that’s about to change. They just signed a deal with Island Def Jam and Mercury Records for a US album, with a single coming in January. Their bid to become the next Spice Girls starts…NOW. [Billboard]
