Charli XCX Drops 'Girl, So Confusing' Remix Featuring Lorde

Charli XCX recently dropped a new remix of "Girl, So Confusing," featuring Lorde.

On the track, which is widely speculated to be about Lorde, Charli conveys her complicated feelings about a fellow female singer, singing, "People say we're alike / They say we've got the same hair/ We talk about making music/ But I don't know if it's honest."

Lorde sings, "Well honestly I was speechless when I woke up to your voice note / You told me how you've been feeling / Let's work it out on the remix."

"Girl, So Confusing" is a song from Charli XCX's sixth studio album Brat (2024). It was released on June 7, 2024 as part of the album through Atlantic Records. The song was written by Charli XCX and its sole producer A. G. Cook. The song deals with Charli XCX's strained relationship with another female musician, which many believed to be Lorde.

After the remix dropped, Charli XCX posted a screenshot of Lorde's text message in which she sent Charli the entirety of her verse, to which Charli replied "Fucking hell."

Upon the release of Brat, Lorde extensively praised the album on her Instagram story, revealing it was the "only album [she's] ever presaved." Lorde also attended Charli XCX's show at the Brooklyn Paramount Theater.

Yungblud recently shared a powerful new single, "Breakdown," in support of mental health charities.

The musician has committed to donate £1 (up to £25,000) to the charities Mind and Sound Mind Live for every use of the song's CapCut template.

"I feel myself changing and throughout my life I've never felt good enough, it's been the main thing that on the one hand has driven me forward but on the other, has eaten me up. For as long as I can remember I have felt constantly afraid of how quickly my head can turn dark."

"It's always been so hard to fight the darkness that I inevitably have. A lot of people will say it's a phase and it will go away. But it doesn't and the reality of the situation is I have to find strategies to deal with it," he added.

Meanwhile, Yungblud is set to headline his own Bludfest at Milton Keynes Bowl on August 11. The genre-spanning bill features Lil Yachty, Soft Play, Nessa Barrett, The Damned, Lola Young, Jazmin Bean, Noahfinnce, Jesse Jo Stark, Landon Barker, Hannah Grae, and Aziya, with many more acts still to be announced.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs Returns Key To New York City

Sean "Diddy" Combs, who was presented the key to New York City by New York Mayer Eric Adams last September, has returned the key following a request from the Mayor in response to the release of a video showing the musician attacking R&B singer Cassandra Ventura.

According to the mayor's office, Combs returned the key after Adams sent letters to his offices in New York and California on June 4 rescinding the key and asking for it to be sent back to City Hall.

Adams wrote he was "deeply disturbed" by the attack, adding, "I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence."

A security video aired by CNN in May, showed Combs attacking Cassie in a hotel hallway in Los Angeles in 2016. Combs has said he is "truly sorry" for the attack on Cassie and called his actions "inexcusable."

Cassie sued Combs last year, but that case was settled a day after it was filed.

Adams awarded Combs with the key at a ceremony last year that coincided with the release of a new album.

Miley Cyrus Opens Up About Relationship With Her Dad Billy Ray Cyrus

Miley Cyrus has dismissed estrangement rumors about she and her dad Billy Ray Cyrus.

Miley opened up about her relationship with her dad on My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman.

Responding to a question by Letterman, she said, "I think what is so beautiful is that my parents, they served their children. My parents served us and sacrificed so much for us. Anything we dreamed of, they made possible."

"I'm grateful for being able to watch him ahead of me," Miley added of her dad. "He's almost given me this map. And there's a map of what to do and what not to do, and he's guided me on both. . I also inherited the narcissism from my father."

Cyrus also spoke about the differences between her parents and recalled that her dad had "a pretty rough childhood," while her mother had a more stable upbringing within a "completely intact, beautiful family." Billy Ray Cyrus and wife Tish Cyrus separated in 2022.

"My dad, as a creative and as an artist in the way that his brain works, has always made me feel safer in my own mind because we're very similar in our ideas. So I think a lot of his perspective on reality and on life, I've inherited from him, more so than the way that I was raised - which really, my mom raised me. Honestly, my mom is my hero," Miley said in the latest episode of the Netflix series.

Rihanna Says She's 'Staring Over' On Long-Awaited Album

During the launch of Fenty Hair at Nya Studios in Los Angeles, Rihanna gave an update on her long-awaited album, called R9 by her fans, and brushed aside rumors about her retirement that began when she was spotted in New York City with A$AP Rocky sporting a t-shirt that read, "I'm Retired."

"People got triggered with that retired word," Rihanna told ET's Kevin Frazier. "They were like 'We're never getting an album now.' No one read the other line, it was something about, 'This is as dressed up as I get.'"

"I think that music, for me, is a new discovery," she said. "I'm rediscovering things. I have been working on the album for so long that I kinda put all that stuff aside and now I'm prepared to go back in the studio. I'm gonna start -- give me a second!"

Rihanna said the process includes revisiting the songs that she already has and added that there are still new things to come.

"Yeah, I'm starting over," she revealed. "But I don't want to neglect the songs that I have, so I actually want to go back and listen to stuff with new ears, with my new perspective and then see what applies and what I'm still in love with."

Rihanna's last album, Anti, arrived in January 2016. The record rose to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in its second week on the chart, with 166,000 units earned in the U.S. in the week ending Feb. 4, 2016, according to Nielsen Music.

Glass Animals Share New Single 'Tear In Space (Airlock)'

Glass Animals recently released a new single, called "A Tear In Space (Airlock)."

The track is the latest preview of the British band's fourth studio album, I Love You So F***ing Much, which is due July 19 via Polydor.

The song is accompanied by a video directed by Taylor Fauntleroy and Drew Kirsch. In the black-and-white video, frontman Dave Bayley is seen fighting gravity as well as for his life in a literal airlock chamber while symbolic objects from a dinner table shatter in front of his face.

"The roses, the dining table, the candles and the suit are all symbols of love and care. All juxtaposed by a big cold scientific machine made of blades that can only blow things away and destroy," Bayley said. "The blades get faster as you get closer. It peels the layers off you until there are none left, and then it stretches you and pulls you apart until you're obliterated. The irony I guess is that even if you do manage to push through the wind and make it to the core of the beast, it just chops you to bits anyway!"

I Love You So F***ing Much was announced in April, along with the lead single "Creatures In Heaven."

Howard University Rescinds Sean 'Diddy' Combs' Honorary Degree

Howard University has rescinded Sean "Diddy" Combs' honorary degree, saying he is "no longer worthy to hold the institution's highest honor."

The decision to revoke the recognition conferred to the rapper a decade ago was made unanimously at a meeting of the University's board of trustees last Friday.

The board said in a statement that the university will return Combs' $1 million contribution and terminate a $1 million pledge agreement from the Sean Combs Foundation.

A video that surfaced last month shows Combs attacking his former girlfriend, singer Casandra "Cassie" Ventura, at the InterContinental Hotel in Los Angeles.

The statement says Combs' behavior as captured in the video dated March 5, 2016, is "so fundamentally incompatible with Howard University's core values and beliefs that he is deemed no longer worthy to hold the institution's highest honor."

"The University is unwavering in its opposition to all acts of interpersonal violence," it added.

Combs is also facing a probe by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's investigative wing into allegations of sex trafficking.
