Selena Gomez is very, very sad in her new music video.

In the music video for the first track off Gomez’s upcoming album For You, “The Heart Wants What It Wants,” the singer displays quite a different sentiment from the last time she ruled the charts with “Come and Get It.” READ FULL STORY

Selena Gomez cancels Australian tour to 'spend time' on herself

After wrapping her Stars Dance tour in the U.S. and Europe on Nov. 26, Selena Gomez is ready for some time off.

According to People, Gomez has canceled her 2014 Australian tour to take some time to herself. The singer reportedly released a statement saying, “My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.”

Kanye and Lindsay Lohan drop in on Thirty Seconds to Mars' 'City of Angels' video: Watch it here

Jared Leto is getting serious awards-related attention for his performance in the about-to-be-released film The Dallas Buyers ClubBut the actor is also, famously, a musician and a filmmaker (he directs under the name Bartholomew Cubbins), and it’s those skills he applies to the new short film that accompanies the Thirty Seconds to Mars song “City of Angels.”

The song, from the soundtrack to The Dallas Buyers Club, is a tribute to Los Angeles, and the 11-minute film features testimonials from from a variety of L.A. denizens, including Kanye West, Lindsay Lohan, Selena Gomez, James Franco, Corey Feldman, Alan Cumming, Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash, and a handful of celebrity impersonators and street performers. The key quote? Kanye West declares “Fame is f—ing awesome!”

Selena Gomez has the number one album in the country

Stand aside, Jay Z — the newly-legal ex-girlfriend of Justin Bieber now owns the album chart.

Selena Gomez’s Stars Dance takes the top spot on the Billboard 200 this week, moving about 97,000 copies in its first week. Buoyed by the top 10 hit “Come & Get It” (written, incidentally, by songwriter and Pitch Perfect star Ester Dean), Stars Dance knocked Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail from its two-week perch. It’s Gomez’s first chart-topper, though all three of her albums with the Scene have made the top 10.

The only other big debut this week belongs to Marc Anthony, whose Spanish-language 3.0 checks in at number five with 39,000 copies sold. MIchigan metalcore band We Came As Romans’ Tracing Back Roots and the Young Money Cash Money compilation Rich Gang (which features tracks by Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Tyga, French Montana, Flo Rida, and Birdman) also made top 10 debuts.

Meanwhile, expect strong numbers for One Direction when tomorrow’s new Billboard Hot 100 comes out: their new single “Best Song Ever” sold an impressive 322,000 digital downloads in its first week of release. Considering the radio support the group gets, it would not be shocking to see “Best Song Ever” debut in the top 10, perhaps even in the top five. Still, it looks like Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is on its way to an eighth consecutive week as the number one song in the country. It remains the most-streamed song on Spotify, and people cannot get enough of its who-needs-clothes? video.

It’ll be interesting to see next week’s album chart, as new albums by both Thicke and the Backstreet Boys should show up in the top 10. Will the success of Thicke’s single translate to a chart-topping debut on the albums list?

In an interview on On Air with Ryan Seacrest today, Selena Gomez announced that she is set to hit the road this summer for a 56-date world tour. Gomez’s “Stars Dance” kicks off Aug. 4 in Vancouver.

Selena Gomez's new single 'Come and Get It' leaks early -- hear it here

Selena Gomez’s upcoming single “Come & Get It” wasn’t supposed to drop until Tuesday, but the Internet couldn’t wait.

So after the track leaked last night, Gomez went ahead and pulled back the curtain on her new track, which will appear on her still-untitled solo album due this summer.

She’s clearly gunning for summer jam status; “Come & Get It” is an easy, breezy tune with an ambling melody and a hint of reggae lilt. Give it a listen below: READ FULL STORY

Selena Gomez covers 'Cry Me A River' -- VIDEO

It seems like only yesterday that a rain-soaked Justin Timberlake was giving a public kiss-off to a Britney Spears lookalike.

With the apparent break up (again!) of teen pop’s current reigning couple, Selena Gomez has turned to the Timberlake classic to tell Justin Bieber she was done. Texting is sooo 2005.

In concert over the weekend, a hippie-fied (Seriously! Check the flowers!) Gomez told the crowd, “This song definitely speaks to me,” before launching into “Cry Me A River.” Girl was definitely working through some feelings – she also covered Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” and Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time,” during the performance.

When Bieber and Gomez broke up (the first time!) in November, Bieber also turned to Timberlake to get the message across, performing “Cry Me A River” in concert. Now, Gomez has returned the favor. What did teenage superstars do before JT and YouTube combined to give them a perfect way to send a “subtle” message to the other? Your move, Biebs.

Justin Bieber performs 'Cry Me A River' in concert: What's he trying to tell us? -- VIDEO

There’s now one more lonely guy.

As teens the world over undoubtedly already know, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are no longer together. People reports that Gomez ended things over “trust issues,” but Bieber’s latest moves don’t exactly jibe with that version of events.

In concert over the weekend, Bieber performed “Cry Me A River,” Justin Timberlake’s 2002 famous rain-soaked kiss-off to a cheating Britney Spears. Pause. Does this mean Gomez cheated on him? Is he trying to incept everyone as we speak? Is it weird that Timberlake’s decade-old breakup song is circling back around (and around) and coming all the way back around for the ending of another teen dream split?

This isn’t the first time Bieber has performed the song, but it is the first time that people can make a big, huge deal out of it. TMZ reports that Bieber is confident they’ll get back together (make sure to tell that to Gomez’s BFF Taylor Swift!), but if those two crazy kids really are done for good, what other songs would you like to hear him add into his devastation rotation: “Go Your Own Way”? “Everybody Hurts”? “The Scientist”?

So many questions, only 1:34 minutes of footage to overanalyze. Check out the heartbreak below: READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber covers Phish on 'Believe' tour

“Cover” is a strong word.

The Biebz recently took in a Phish concert with his girlfriend Selena Gomez and guitarist/musical director Dan Kanter. Now it seems his band’s taken to banging out portions of Phish tunes during interludes on stage. I wouldn’t go so far as to say they’re covering the songs – Kanter is basically working an occasional Phish guitar lick into Bieber originals – but it’s refreshing to hear something, you know, heady from the cherubic teen idol. He’s already admitted that he’s into Metallica and Boyz II Men – who’s to say he can’t also dig a jam band?

The band first tackled “Divided Sky” at a gig in Fresno, Calif.; a day later, in Oakland, they snuck “Sand” and “First Tube” into a segway between Bieber’s “Love Me Like You Do” and “She Don’t Like the Light.” Watch those two riffs in the video below at 4:32 and 5:35, respectively.
