Hailee Steinfeld Got A Record Deal

The 2015 Billboard Music Awards Arrivals in Las Vegas

Sorry, should I know who Hailee Steinfeld is? Kidding!  (But really…)

Apparently, she was in Pitch Perfect 2, which destroyed the competition in its opening weekend at the box office, and Hailee is also on its soundtrack? Anyhow, the 18-year-old is stepping out to forge forward with her own musical career.

The girl JUST signed to a record deal with Republic Records and the company’s executive vice president, Charlie Walk, is excited to be her musical sherpa:

“The moment that we met Hailee we found her commitment to music inspiring. She has the vision, natural talent, and dedication to compete at the highest level. We are thrilled to be part of her musical journey.”

So what do you think her music will be like? If it’s anything like the movie, it’s gonna be funnnn and danc-y. I’m down, whoever you are Steinfeld!

In N’ Out should send Taylor Swift a thank you card!

Aside from the video itself, Swifty had another treat for fans after premiering the star-studded music video- a really fun a behind-the-scenes photo showing how pals like Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid chowing down on In N’ Out!

The fun Instagram photo shows Zendaya, Hadid, Gomez, Martha Hunt, and Serayah all done up in their super sexy black leather outfits, making binge eating look sexy as hell.

“After we wrapped. #BadBloodMusicVideo,” Swift captioned the snap which she shared as she celebrated winning a massive eight awards at the BBMAs. Yeah, wrap the video, unwrap them BURGERS, ladies!

Blues Legend B.B. King Dies At 89

B.B King Performing At The House Of Blues In Chicago

B.B. King has passed, and with him, a little piece of blues history…

The legendary guitarist died Thursday at home in Las Vegas, according to his attorney.  He was 89, and in hospice care since the first of May.

TMZ broke the story that some of B.B.’s children had recently battled his longtime manager Laverne Toney about his medical care and finances. Earlier this month, Patty King accused Toney of elder abuse but the claim was eventually shot down in court.

King was famous for bringing the sounds of the Mississippi Delta blues to the mainstream, starting with his hit 1970 version of “The Thrill Is Gone.” He also recorded countless collaborations with other superstars including Sheryl Crow, Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton.

You will be missed, B.B., but not forgotten!

Barry Manilow Marries Manager Garry Kief

2014 Carousel Of Hope Ball Presented By Mercedes-Benz

Barry Manilow is HITCHED!

The “Copacabana Crooner” and his longtime manager Garry Kief tied the knot last year in a private ceremony, multiple sources confirm to People:

“It was a surprise,” a friend of the couple says of the wedding, which was held at Manilow’s Palm Springs, California, home and attended by “20 to 30 guests” who had been told they were attending a “lunch.”

Though the wedding was private and without any official paperwork, Manilow and Kief both wear wedding bands. So I guess it was more of a commitment ceremony?

  “(The couple) are committed to one another and have been for a very long time,” a Manilow source says. “They have a great relationship. Garry has always been there for Barry.”

News of the nuptials may surprise some, but the source says Manilow has never tried to hide his sexual orientation.

“He’s at a point now where he’s got his career and personal life in a great place and he really doesn’t care what people think,” the source says. “He’s in love and happy.”

(Via People)

Sounds like it! Because this feels totally like one of those situations where someone goes their WHOLE career kinda denying who they are, only to finally at age SEVENTY-FRIGGING-ONE come out and do something nice for themselves and be honest. So, I hope Barry and Garry have a great life, devoid of judgement that probably plagued most of Manilow’s life and career.
