'Nashville' in concert: On the scene in New York

The first-ever Nashville cast concert tour hit New York City on May 6, with Charles “Chip” Esten (Deacon), Clare Bowen (Scarlett), Jonathan Jackson (Avery), Sam Palladio (Gunnar), Chris Carmack (Will), Chaley Rose (Zoey), and Will Chase (Luke) in tow. They performed songs heard on the show, as well as originals. In honor of Bowen’s song “Cheap Red Wine,” which will be on the album she’s currently cutting, Mandi Bierly and Samantha Highfill grabbed a couple of glasses after the show and discussed their notes on the set list, Esten’s biceps, and the adorableness that was Chase’s girlfriend, Debra Messing, filming him on her phone from the balcony.

Anna Wintour shuts down Madonna's Met Gala outfit

We’re all for expressing yourself — but no, Madonna, you can’t wear a tiny strip of cloth to the Met Gala.

There were plenty of crazy ensembles at Monday night’s Anna Wintour-run Met Gala. Sadly, though, there wasn’t one from Madonna, because she chose not to attend. Why? Just check out the singer’s Instagram. “What i wanted to wear to Met Ball but Anna said Not this year! So I’m gonna work on music instead? #artforfreedom,” Madonna wrote, next to a picture of her alleged dream look. The outfit appears to be a series of long band-aids that would have fully exposed the Material Girl’s breasts. #Fashion.

And that’s how you make sure your name stays in the headlines without even showing up to a major event. Sorry, Jay Z mock proposing to Beyoncé on the red carpet: Madonna is the best at Being A Celebrity that there ever was or will be. Check out a photo of her insane outfit below: READ FULL STORY

Don't worry: Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are still friends

Everybody breathe. Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez totally got back together.

Some background, for those who are adults (but inexplicably care about this stuff anyway): For weeks, your niece has been devastated over rumors that the cover stars of BFF Magazine were fighting.  It all began last month after Coachella, when Gomez unfollowed a bunch of people on Instagram — including Taylor Swift. No one knows exactly what caused the shut-out. (Ugh. It was probably Justin Bieber-related. Sure, Taylor may have known he was trouble when he walked in — but when your friends make bad dating choices, you have to let them be. Or just write a song about it.)

But! Now Swift and Gomez are ready to prove they love each other like a love song once again. On Monday, both attended the Met Gala — such a teenage dream — and Gomez uploaded the video  below to her Instagram account, along with this message: “Sometimes you wanna just be you with someone who knows all your secrets.” Cue the music, pretty dresses, and twirling — it’s a regular Taylor Swift chorus up in here.

'Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse' and other strange album titles

Mariah Carey recently revealed that her latest album’s title is Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?

Carey isn’t the first to name her album something totally weird and certainly, won’t be the last, so we gathered together some other memorably odd album titles — including one that Carey may or may not have used as inspiration, to put it nicely. Check out the list below:

Even Obama gets in on the Justin Timberlake 'It's Gonna Be May' meme

May 1 has been a holiday for basically as long as holidays have existed — but thanks to a certain ’00s phenomenon, May Day has recently gotten a whole lot better.

In case you don’t know, once upon a time, there was this boy band called ‘N Sync. They had a song called “It’s Gonna Be Me.” In those bygone days, all the cool kids were pronouncing words weirdly when they sang. (It’s why Britney Spears had a generation of kids wondering what the hell a “babe-in” was, as in “Oh babe-in babe-in, how was I supposed to know/That something wasn’t right here?”) It showed passion, and made all the ladies/fellas want you.

So when Justin Timberlake — back when he still had his curly fro — went to sing “It’s gonna be me,” he made a very crucial artistic decision. (Think Picasso.) Instead, he said, “It’s gonna be May” — or at least, that’s what it sounded like.

Ed Sheeran rejects offer for first verified Tinder account -- VIDEO

Sorry, ladies, but you won’t be setting up with a date with Ed Sheeran on Tinder anytime soon.

The popular dating app has been in talks to allow verified accounts for more famous Tinder users, similar to Twitter. Sheeran was apparently offered the very first verified profile — but he ended up turning it down. “It just sounds quite creepy doing that,” he told Total Access in a radio interview. “You’re just using your celebrity status to hook up with chicks.” (You listening, Franco?)

'Grease': Who's the one that you want to play Danny and Sandy?

Who’s the one that you want?

Fox announced Monday that NBC isn’t the only studio that can bring musicals to the small screen: They’ll air a live, three-hour version of Grease sometime next year. If three makes a trend, I couldn’t be happier that musicals-on-TV are officially, finally back.

Now, there are a lot of considerations for a Grease adaptation. First of all: Will Fox stick solely with the Broadway version of the show (à la NBC’s decision for Sound of Music), which differentiates a fair amount from the John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John iconic movie? The stage show spends much more time with supporting characters as opposed to Danny and Sandy. People freaked out when Carrie Underwood sang “A Lonely Goatherd” in the first act of Sound of Music (a difference from the movie) — perhaps Fox will want to keep fans happy and keep things similar to the film.
