Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagic Kesha is definitely ready to hit the road this month after the COVID-19 pandemic sidelined her for a year-and-a-half. "I might just be inconsolable. I know we're all gonna go full crazy," she tells Billboard. The "Tik Tok" singer says quarantine was "confusing" and left her feeling "a little helpless," so she's "beyond excited and grateful" to finally hit the stage. "You don't realize how much you appreciate something until it's taken away from you and I realize my connective tissue to the world is being on stage," she adds. "I want people to come [to my show] and go absolutely nuts and not feel like they have to censor themselves at all." "I'm so excited to provide the happiest place," says Kesha, who describes the vibe of her tour as a "skanky Disneyland that's covered in glitter with way more bad words.” The Kesha Live tour, featuring opener Betty Who, kicks off August 13 in Billings, MT and is scheduled through Aug..
Isabel Infantes/PA Images via Getty Images Camila Cabello understands that social media can be both a delightful and terrifying place -- that is why she swears to use her platform to promote only positive messages. Speaking to the British show Lorraine on Tuesday, the "Don't Go Yet" singer addressed the pressures people face -- particularly when it comes to beauty standards -- when browsing social media. "It can be fun, but it can also be a lot," Camila, 24, explained, saying she sees the benefit of using social media. "For me, like posting about that video that I posted about my body and being like, 'I have cellulite and stretch marks and gain weight sometimes and that's normal.' And kinda having messages like that feels really liberating." "TikTok seems like it's a positive platform where people can just be funny, be honest, be inspiring [and] be truthful," the three-time Grammy nominee continued. However, she admits her experiences on TikTok do not refl..

Courtest of VEVO Billie Eilish performed a raw, yet elegant rendition of her song "Male Fantasy" in a new VEVO Live video. This marks the first time Eilish, 19, has performed the emotional closing single off her new album Happier Than Ever, which arrived last week. Assisted by her brother FINNEAS on guitar, Eilish delivered the somber rendition of the track while sitting at the edge of a bed. The footage of the live performance was grainy, reportedly shot using 35mm film, which matched the retro '70s era hotel room setup -- from the velvet drapes to the winged white lamp -- which accessorized the lovelorn video. "Male Fantasy" is an intimate song that explores one of Eilish's devastating heartbreaks and how she mourns what the relationship could have become while pretending she's okay with being single. It includes the turbulent lyrics, "But I loved you then, and I love you now/ And I don't know how/ Guess it's hard to know when nobody else comes around/ ..

Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images Selena Gomez said she's disappointed that yet another television show mocked her kidney transplant. Paramount+'s The Good Fight found itself in hot water when a recent episode contained a scene where several characters bemoaned cancel culture and said people now "need a permission slip to tell a joke." When the characters discuss what jokes are definitely considered off-limits, Ifádansi Rashad's Jim queries if "Selena Gomez's kidney transplant" makes the cut. Other topics floated by other characters include autism and necrophilia. "I am not sure how writing jokes about organ transplants for television shows has become a thing but sadly it has apparently," Selena said Tuesday on Twitter. "I hope in the next writer’s room when one of these tasteless jokes are presented it’s called out immediately and doesn’t make it on air." The "Lose You to Love Me" singer also shouted out her fans for "always [having] my back" in a follow-up post, a..
Jamie Squire/Getty Images After Simone Biles took home the bronze medal in the individual balance beam competition at the Tokyo Olympics, she celebrated with none other than pop star Taylor Swift. Biles, who previously withdrew from several gymnastic events due to mental health reasons, reacted to the meaningful video Swift voiced in support of her return to the Games. Taylor calls the gymnast a "hero" in the promo that was aired on NBC and lauded her decision to put her mental health first, saying it sets a great example for generations to come. "She's perfectly human," the Grammy winner expressed in the emotional clip. "And that's why it makes it so easy to call her a hero." Biles retweeted the video and revealed just how much Swift's words meant to her. "I'm crying," she gushed. "How special. I love you @taylorswift13." Taylor was quick to reach out to the gymnast and let her know that she wasn't the only one shedding a few happy tears that evening. ..
