Beyonce & Jay-Z Share ‘Sin City’ Photo Album Following Their 13th Wedding Anniversary

Beyoncé uploaded a series of stylish new photos from a trip to Sin City with Jay-Z.

On Saturday (April 10), the singer’s official website was updated with a number of pictures — many of Beyoncé herself, but some featuring Jay-Z, too. The couple celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary last week, on April 4.

Beyoncé showed off a killer outfit — tweed shorts and a matching blazer with a fit made for her, accessorized with red heels — from all angles, and she shared some plane ride and date pictures in a gallery that was simply labeled “Sin City.”

Over on Instagram later on, Beyoncé mostly posted the same pictures, plus a fun GIF with her husband.

A couple weeks ago, she gave a rare glimpse at some family snapshots, in which she was seen enjoying a carefree beach day with her children in Malibu.

Taylor Swift Fan Recreates All of Her Eras in One Viral TikTok Video

From “Our Song” to “Willow,” one Taylor Swift fan has recreated every one of the star’s iconic eras for a clip that’s racking up views on TikTok.

The video, which has been viewed 3.4 million times and has received almost 1 million likes on TikTok as of Saturday (April 10), was first posted on Friday (April 9), the day Swift released her re-recorded Fearless (Taylor’s Version).

TikTok user @juliiieanne, whose channel features a collection of Swift look-alike videos, seamlessly transitions through moments from each of Swift’s original studio albums in her latest short video, all in less than a minute — and completely in costume, creatively replicating Swift’s hairstyles, makeup looks and outfits.

“What’s your era?” she captioned the clip, which runs through Swift’s self-titled debut album all the way to Evermore.

“How do you look so much like her and also nothing like her at the same time??” one person pondered, while another was not quite convinced she wasn’t actually the real deal: “are u telling me this isn’t taylor swift.”

“you look more and more like her as the video goes on,” another fan pointed out.

“Queen just casually had a marching band costume I love it,” another TikTok creator said of her Fearless-era ensemble.

Watch it below and on Julie’s TikTok. Check out all her other Swift videos here.

Britney Spears Posts Throwback Photo With Jamie Lynn & Justin Timberlake for Sister’s Birthday

Britney Spears went way back in the photo archives to wish her sister, Jamie Lynn, a belated happy birthday.

The pop star opted to share a fun snapshot on Instagram Friday night (April 9) from several years ago that happened to feature the both of them and Justin Timberlake.

In the picture, all eyes are on a young Jamie Lynn, who appears to be entertaining a small crowd of people including big sister Britney with her former boyfriend Timberlake.

“Happy belated birthday to this beautiful soul!!!” Spears wrote in the photo caption to her little sister, who celebrated her birthday on April 4. “I love you so much and damn it I wish I was as smart as you at 30 !!!! It’s weird to say that I was basically your momma when you were younger and yes I’m still older but your soul is and always has been wise !!!!”

She continued: “I’m truly and genuinely inspired by your path and the life you have created for your beautiful children and I’m so f—ing proud to call someone as beautiful inside as you my sister !!!!”

“And not only are you a beautiful soul you’re so DAMN STRONG … I was extremely taken back and still am to this very day !!!” she said, recalling a moment the sisters shared. “We play wrestled at home (such classy Southern chicks) and you put me to the floor in literally two seconds after I gave all my might … I’ll never forget it !!! Maybe we should have a rematch … I mean things have changed since 6 years ago !!!!! PS I wish I was as strong as you and happy birthday !!!!”

Jamie Lynn responded with a collection of cute emojis, while most of the other comments left on the post focused on Timberlake’s unexpected appearance on Spears’ Instagram feed.

In February, Timberlake reached out to Spears via a public apology on social media after the documentary Framing Britney Spears reported how he had portrayed her following their much-publicized split in 2002, when he made jokes about their sex life in interviews and cast a Britney look-alike in his damning “Cry Me a River” music video.

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right,” he wrote in a note on Feb. 12. “I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism. I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”

Lana Del Rey Gets Backlash After Sharing Photos of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

Lana Del Rey is receiving backlash on social media after showing her admiration for the longtime romance between the UK’s Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip.

Following news of Philip’s death on Friday (April 9), the 35-year-old songstress paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh by posting several vintage photos of the royal couple, who were married for 73 years.

“I’ve always loved the way they loved,” Del Rey captioned the pictures on Instagram.

In one image, Queen Elizabeth is seen smiling up at Prince Philip, while another shows a black-and-white snapshot of the longtime partners holding two of their young children.

Many of Del Rey’s nearly 19 million Instagram followers took issue with her post, noting that Philip and Elizabeth were distant relatives. “Mmm i love how they were cousins<3,” one person commented. Another wrote, “Bestie they’re related.”

Others begged the singer to remove the post. “Please delete this I can’t keep defending you,” a fan responded, while another suggested, “Step away from the phone BFF.”

Billboard has reached out to Del Rey’s representatives for comment about the post.

In late March, Del Rey released her newest album, Chemtrails Over the Country Club, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart. The set follows 2017’s Lust for Life and 2014’s Ultraviolence. The singer has already teased her next project, Rock Candy Sweet, which is scheduled to arrive on June 1.

BTS’ Bang Bang Con is returning in 2021.

The K-pop band took to social media on Saturday (April 10) to announce Bang Bang Con 21. The virtual event is scheduled to take place on April 17 at 3 p.m. KST on the septet’s official YouTube channel BANGTANTV.

That summer, BTS followed up with Bang Bang Con: The Live, a 90-minute pay-per-view concert. The virtual performance was held June 14, a day after the band’s seventh anniversary.

BTS recently dropped the new song “Film Out,” a collaboration with J-pop band Back Number that appears as the ending theme in the new Japanese film Signal: Long-Term Unsolved Case Investigation Team. The track will be included on the the septet’s next Japanese-language album, BTS, The Best, which is scheduled for release on June 16.

Sofia Reyes Explains “WTF is Chamoy?”

Sofia Reyes is ready to make a difference with the help of Estrella Jalisco. This week, the Mexican artist announced she teamed up with the Mexican beer brand to raise awareness on “chamoy,” a “distinctly Mexican flavor that is widely loved, but hard to describe.” To celebrate, Reyes unveiled Estrella Jalisco’s brand new drink Tropical Chamoy Michelada, which is a lager fused with a flavorful blend of clamato, chamoy, and pineapple. Fun fact, according to a press statement, it’s the first ready-to-drink beverage in the U.S. to use chamoy!

Demi Lovato Recalls Comfort of Owning Her Truth in Docuseries: ‘Nothing Anyone Can Say Will Shake Me’

Demi Lovato discussed her intensely personal docuseries Dancing With the Devil on Friday (April 9) with Jimmy Fallon.

The series debuted at this year’s virtual South by Southwest festival and details the Grammy-nominated singer’s struggles with drug abuse, self-harm and eating disorders.

Fallon, declaring that he won’t allow himself to get emotional, referred to the series as “rough and tough” and asked Lovato if it felt “odd” to be that honest about her life.

“It was challenging,” said Lovato, explaining that she had to do a lot of work on herself behind the scenes before she was ready and felt “completely secure” in actually telling her story straight to the camera.

“It’s been really cathartic, really really therapeutic,” of the overall experience. She hopes that people can learn from what she went through, but also that the documentary “creates conversation” around those difficult topics.

“I had a physical reaction the first time that I watched it,” said the singer, “like — anxiety attack.” She went on to say that a part of telling her story was about taking ownership, and in particular owning her truth. “No matter what people say when they watch it, and whatever people think when they listen to my album [Dancing With the Devil…The Art of Starting Over], I am so excited about these two projects and I’m standing in such truth that nothing anyone can say will shake me.”

In one of its most revealing episodes, the series set the record straight about Lovato’s 2018 opioid overdose — in which she was minutes away from death and suffered a heart attack and three strokes. “My doctors said that I had five to 10 more minutes [to live],” she says in the documentary, about surviving the overdose.

Lovato’s late-night appearance also involved the singer talking about her collaboration with Ariana Grande for the track “Met Him Last Night.” It all ended on a playful note as she participated in a one-word song challenge with Fallon.
