Louis Tomlinson jokingly calls out Liam Payne for not answering his phone

Dave J Hogan/Dave J Hogan/Getty Images) Word of the wise: When Louis Tomlinson calls you, you better pick up or face the consequences. The British singer took exception when his old One Direction bandmate, Liam Payne, was not answering his calls and, as punishment, put him on blast on social media. On Thursday, Liam took to his Instagram stories to show off his new haircut and painting of the late Prince Philip around the same time Louis was trying to get him to pick up the phone. After awhile, Louis decided to troll the "Strip That Down" singer by ratting him out to his 35 million Twitter followers. "I see you on Instagram lad @LiamPayne , answer your phone," Tomlinson tweeted, capping off his call out post with five exclamation points. The 29-year-old singer made it known he was keeping tabs on Liam and followed up in another tweet, "Boss drawing and that but get your priorities straight." Louis' two callout posts inspired his fans to also pester the "For You" crooner an..

‘All for You’: Janet Jackson’s blockbuster 2001 album turns 20

Virgin Records April 16 marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Janet Jackson’s blockbuster seventh studio album, All for You. In honor of the milestone, here are five fascinating facts about the album. 5. Janet made All for You after divorcing René Elizondo Jr., whom she’d secretly married in 1991. He's the guy whose hands were covering her breasts on the cover of Rolling Stone in 1993. Despite the split, her producer, Jimmy Jam, said Janet was optimistic about the future, which is why the album was carefree, fun and upbeat. 4. Janet said All for You is “a suite of songs that helped me move from one emotional level to another.” She added, “I feel free, and there’s nothing more wonderful than freedom.” As MTV noted, the album's two themes were "the liberation that comes with ending a bad relationship, and sex." 3. All for You debuted at number one with the biggest opening sales week of Janet’s career, selling more than 605,000 copies. It’s since sold more than seven..
