ABC/Adam TaylorPink will be singing for a good cause this winter. The pop star is scheduled to perform at this year’s 11th annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball.  

The black-tie charity event will take place on December 1 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City and it will feature a gold-and-silver color scheme for all the ladies attending. A host for the evening has yet to be announced.

Pink has been a longtime supporter of UNICEF, a United Nations program which helps provide long-term assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. Last year’s event, which was hosted by Bryant Gumbel, raised $3.4 million for the organization.

RCA RecordsEver since WALK THE MOON's "Shut Up and Dance" became the band's breakthrough hit, the song has popped up in a variety of places -- on Dancing with the Stars, for example, and online in numerous cover versions, lip dub clips, tributes and other videos.  But frontman Nick Petricca says there's one particular way that "Shut Up and Dance" has been used that's the band's absolute favorite.

"Definitely that YouTube video -- it’s just a fan who put together all these famous dance scenes from movies across the last 30 years or so, and it’s all set to 'Shut Up and Dance' and it’s amazing," Nick tells ABC Radio. 

Among the movies that are featured in the video, which has racked up over 3 million views: Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, Risky Business, Beetlejuice, Silver Linings Playbook, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Magic Mike, Love Actually, Slumdog Millionaire, Charlie's Angels, Pulp Fiction, Grease, Mary Poppins, The Breakfast Club and many, many more.

Guitarist Eli Maiman adds, "There's scenes from Disney animated films....tons of stuff. They move by so quickly that you almost can’t catch them all. You know, it really warrants repeated viewing to make sure you see everything."

That video has become so popular that it's spawned several sequels of even more dancing scenes from movies.  And speaking of popularity, as "Shut Up and Dance" has climbed into the top 10, WALK THE MOON has attracted tons of new fans. It's a phenomenon which Eli Maiman says they witness every night at their concerts.

"It’s really amazing," he tells ABC Radio. "Every night Nick asks the audience, 'Who’s never been to a WALK THE MOON show before?' And it’s usually like half to three-quarters of the room are new fans, you know, or at least new concertgoers. And it’s pretty remarkable to see it growing in such a tangible way." 

WALK THE MOON will continue to grab new fans as they make a slew of festival appearances this summer, and they're also opening for The Rolling Stones at the legendary rockers' July 8 show in Detroit.  On July 10, they'll perform on ABC's Good Morning America as part of its annual summer concert series.

RCA RecordsZayn Malik had his time in the spotlight with One Direction. Now, it’s his fiancée’s turn. Perrie Edwards, a member of the British girl group Little Mix, had a hand in writing the Britney Spears/Iggy Azalea duet, “Pretty Girls.”

She and her band mates tell U.K.’s The Sun that they penned the tune for their own album, but ultimately decided it wasn’t a good fit. Britney, on the other hand, was eager to snap it up.

“We were in the studio when we found out, none of us could believe it,” Perrie says. “I cried!”

Little Mix was formed for the eighth season of the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2011 and became the first group to win the competition. They're releasing their third album later this year.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCIt seems Iggy Azalea just can’t catch a break. Thousands of people have signed a petition to have the Aussie rapper’s Billboard Music Award for Top Rap Song retracted.

The petition on Change.org claims Iggy’s song “Fancy” was ineligible to receive the prize. "Iggy Azalea's 2015 Billboard Award for Best Song has been proven invalid," the petition reads. "The eligibility time period for nominations is March 10th, 2014 through March 2015. 'Fancy' was released on February 17th, 2014, nearly a month before the eligibility start[ed]."

The petition goes on to say that Iggy’s win was unfair to the other nominees in the category, particularly Nicki Minaj, who likely would have won for “Anaconda.”

More than 17,500 supporters had signed the petition as of Wednesday morning.

But while the petition is correct about the song’s release date, it doesn’t have all of the facts straight. A rep for the Billboard Music Awards' production company, Dick Clark Productions, tells the International Business Times that the song was in fact eligible.

The spokesperson clarifies that the award is based on Nielsen sales data and chart performance Billboard tracks during that March-to-March period, and has nothing to do with the song’s release date. So even though “Fancy” was released a month before the reporting period began, the song still saw enough success in that time frame to warrant the award.

Iggy also took home the Billboard Music Awards for Top Rap Artist and Top Streaming Artist.

Big Machine RecordsThe Billboard Hot 100 has mad love for Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood."  T-Swift's new single, featuring Kendrick Lamar, has zoomed from #53 to #1.  In addition to its sales and airplay, the song was able to top the chart thanks to huge streaming numbers for its star-studded video.

"Bad Blood" is Taylor Swift's fourth #1 hit overall, and her third from 1989, though Kendrick doesn't appear on the album version.  Still, as Billboard notes, this makes 1989 the first album to produce three #1 hits since Adele's 21. This also marks Taylor's 18th top 10 hit.

As for Kendrick, this is the rapper's first #1 hit and his second top 10.  Appearing on the Ellen DeGenres Show on Wednesday, he spoke about how he ended up being the only male celebrity featured in the "Bad Blood" video.  "Man, she reached out. I've always been a fan of hers, and she was a fan of my music and she reached out and we got it done," he said.

Taylor is a big fan of Kendrick's -- in a recent issue of Rolling Stone, she cites his song "Backstreet Freestyle" as a tune that helped her adjust to life in New York City. 

"I was dealing with dozens of paparazzi outside my place every day. At first, I got really anxious every time I'd be about to open the car door," she told the magazine. "Then one day I put my iPhone on shuffle, and 'Backseat Freestyle' came on. Something about Kendrick's voice and the beat made me feel safe. It was pretty much all I listened to that summer."

Here are a few fun facts about Taylor's chart feat, courtesy of Billboard:

--"Bad Blood" is the second song by that title to hit #1: Neil Sedaka's song "Bad Blood" -- featuring Elton John on guest vocals -- topped the chart in 1975.

--The jump from #53 to #1 by "Bad Blood" is the biggest jump to the top since Taylor's "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" went from #72 to #1 in 2012.  But the all time record is held by Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You," which jumped from #97 to #1 in 2009.

ABC/Lou RoccoNote to young fans: Taylor Swift is not your mom. While catching up with her fans on Tumblr this week, Taylor addressed one girl in particular who keeps calling her “mom.” She responded to a video from the girl’s actual mom, in which the woman asks her daughter to stop using the maternal term to refer to Taylor.

In case you’re not aware, teens use “mom” as a compliment to describe a super cool female whom they wish would be their second mom.

"Maddie," Taylor writes to the girl. "This is a passionate plea and I see her reasoning. Your mom birthed you. I was off playing in coffee houses. Your mom tended to you when you cried as a toddler. I drew lyrics on my arms and stomped around in cowboy boots while you cried in the night. Your mom taught you how to speak and read. I was like ‘come on! Let’s all have fun and jump around at this concert and paint our faces with glitter!’"

"So no, I have not earned the right to be referred to as your 'Mom,’" she continues. "I’m more like your crazy aunt. So you shall not call me 'Mom’. No, it’s Aunt Becky."  

In case you forgot, “Becky” refers to an Internet meme Taylor embraced last year.

Meanwhile, between social media posts, Taylor apparently spent Tuesday night out with her rumored beau, DJ-producer Calvin Harris. According to People, the two were spotted holding hands while leaving Taylor’s New York City apartment building.

Taylor and Calvin then reportedly headed to Manhattan’s Little Italy, where they enjoyed an Italian meal at L’asso restaurant. Taylor was dressed in a flirty, light blue crop-top and matching short skirt, while Calvin kept things casual in jeans and a black leather jacket.

The two still haven’t officially confirmed their relationship, but they appear to be slowly taking things public. They attended the Billboard Music Awards together on May 17, where they were photographed hugging and kissing in the front row while celebrating Taylor's wins.  A few days before, they were spotted having dinner in Santa Monica, California.

Taylor will return to her 1989 World Tour on Saturday in Detroit, Michigan.

Mert Alas and Marcus PiggotAnother day, another Forbes list.  This one is the publication's first-ever list of "America's 50 Richest Self-Made Women."  The richest musician on the list?  Madonna.

According to Forbes, a minimum net worth of 250 million dollars was the criteria for making the list, which is why Taylor Swift fell short -- she's "only" worth roughly $200 million.  Madonna ranks #28, with an estimated net worth of $520 million.  The sources of her wealth are listed as "music, clothing and real estate," and it's estimated that she'll be worth millions more after her Rebel Heart tour starts later this year.

Aside from Madonna, the only other celebrities who made the cut are Oprah Winfrey -- who ranks fifth, with $5 billion -- Beyonce and Judge Judy, who tied for the #49 spot with estimated fortunes of $250 million.

Other well-known names on the list include designers Tory Burch, Donna Karan, Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg; author Nora Roberts; Spanx founder Sarah Blakely; and Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg.  The richest woman on the list is Elizabeth Holmes, who founded a blood-testing firm. She's worth $4.5 billion, and at age 31, she's the world's youngest female billionaire.

Interscope RecordsPerforming -- and winning -- at the Billboard Music Awards have given the latest albums from several top acts a big boost on the charts.

Taylor Swift was not only the big winner at this year's BBMAs, but her video for "Bad Blood" opened up the May 17 telecast.  She sees her album 1989 jump from #9 to #2 on the Billboard album chart, with a 149 percent sales gain.  

Meghan Trainor, who won two awards and performed on the show with John Legend, sees her album Title jump from #12 to #5.  And Ed Sheeran, who didn't win, but whose rendition of "Bloodstream" was the most Shazamed performance of the night, sees his album X (Multiply) jump from #13 to #7.

As for new albums, Zedd's sophomore disc True Colors, featuring his hit collaboration with Selena Gomez, debuts at #4. That's way better than the performance of his debut album, Clarity, which never got higher than #38.

Image Group LA/ABCModel Karlie Kloss is a key member of Taylor Swift's squad, and is featured prominently in her epic new video for "Bad Blood."  But why is Karlie so tight with Taylor...and for that matter, how does Taylor manage to attract all these supremely talented, attractive and famous women into her inner circle?  According to Karlie, it's all about the food.

In an interview with Glamour Paris, Karlie is asked the question, "What is the best thing about being friends with Taylor Swift?"  Her answer?  "Taylor is an incredible friend.  She's fiercely loyal, and she's an incredible chef as well. So, that's probably the best part!"

Karlie recently told The Hollywood Reporter that she thinks the "Bad Blood" video -- which also features Cindy Crawford, Lena Dunham, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, Selena Gomez, Jessica Alba, Hailee Steinfeld and more -- should be turned into "a full-length feature film, premiering next year at [the] Cannes [Film Festival]."

Simon EmmettLast night in Boston, The Script kicked off the North American leg of their world tour in support of their latest album No Sound Without Silence.  The tour will feature the band doing a more scaled-down version of the massive shows they've been doing in Europe, which the band thinks will be "really, really special."

"We’re actually going back to more when we first started," lead singer Danny O'Donoghue tells ABC Radio. "So we’ve stripped down a lot of the production. We’re really going, not...back to basics, but we’ve had the kind of massive, massive light show of Europe, and I think coming over here, it’s a small tour, but also I think it’s just getting back to the music, getting back to being a band again."

"I think it’s a really cool way for our fans to catch us as well," he adds. "It’s not that intimate when you’re playing Shea Stadium or you’re playing these places with Paul McCartney or whatever."  The Script have opened for the former Beatle legend several times, most famously in 2009 at New York's Citi Field.

"Playing these places now, they’ll literally be able to see the whites of our eyes," says Danny. "And I think it’s gonna be something really, really special for our fan base here in America." 

Keeping their fans happy is job number one for the Irish group: Script fans are intensely loyal and refer to themselves as "the Script Family."  Danny says many of them have been following the band for years, and the band doesn't take that for granted.

"They’ve watched us grow, we’ve seen them grow too. A lot of the fans, maybe they were 18 or 19 when they first started liking The Script and now they have kids and now some of them are married and some of them are -- they’re growing," he says. "I'm not, I don’t have kids, I’m not married yet, but everybody knows we value our fans more than, I believe, any other band. You know, we really do."

In addition to spending time with fans after every show, The Script is making sure the set list on this tour is full of hits like "Breakeven" and "Hall of Fame," as well as songs from the new album, like "Superheroes" and the new single "No Good in Goodbye."

"We don’t like bands that just go out and do the new album and kind of forget about everything else," guitarist Mark Sheehan tells ABC Radio. "It’s not like we get to be in America all the time so I think for us we’re gonna pepper some of the older songs in there as well and just kind of give a musical journey, so to speak, into the new material, so everybody can just hear them all, really, against each other."

You might think when a band like The Script goes on the road, the list of backstage demands include a massive amount of alcohol.  While they will own up to drinking vodka before the show, drummer Glen Power says it's just "to warm up the belly and get the blood going."  Other than that, Glen says, they keep it simple: all they ask for is "some beers...some healthy food and bits of salad and stuff."

Meanwhile, The Script joined many music stars last week -- including Hozier -- in tweeting their approval of the fact that their home country of Ireland voted in favor of marriage equality.

"We’re so proud of Ireland," says Danny. "A lot of people think because it’s a small island, it’s not progressive. But I think we prove every single time how open-minded as a country we actually are." "And independent, " Mark adds. "Because it used to be years ago that the people were joined by the church, where it’s not that way anymore. Which I think is a good thing."

The Script's tour wraps up June 7 in St. Louis, Missouri.  Then, after a date in Mexico, they'll head back to Europe for festival appearances and one very special gig: a headlining show at Croke Park in their hometown of Dublin, where they'll play for 82,000 people.

Randall SlavinRight now, Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas is all about his upcoming solo album, The Great Unknown, his summer tour and his brand-new single, "Trust You."  But he hasn't forgot about the band: in fact, he says they're planning to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut album in a major way.

"We never really stop. We obviously want to do something big for the 20th anniversary of our first record," Rob tells Entertainment Weekly.  That 1996 disc, titled Yourself or Someone Like You, spun off the hits "3am," "Push," "Real World," and "Back 2 Good," and has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

"We plan to always keep making music and keep touring, just right now it’s impossible -- it really takes a lot of effort to do two projects at one time," Rob says of his future with the band.  Speaking about his current solo projects, he says, "Once this gets floating then I’ll feel a little safer to start talking about what that’s going to be. But there’s definitely going to be something on the horizon, especially for the 20th anniversary."

Rob's solo tour kicks off June 11.  So far, The Great Unknown doesn't have a release date.

Jeff Daly/NBCWhat has Zayn Malik been up to since leaving One Direction? Working on his cooking skills, apparently.

His fiancée, Perrie Edwards, tells U.K.’s The Sun that her man has been whipping up meals in his newly acquired free time. “It’s nice to see more of him now,” she says. “We spend a lot of time in the kitchen, he’s a great chef.”

And it seems Perrie, who’s in a girl group called Little Mix, is making her fellow group members jealous. Her band mate Jesy says, “They never stop cooking, that’s all I ever hear. Every time she comes in she’s like, ‘Zayn made me this’ and ‘Zayn made me that’. I’m like, ‘Can he cook me a meal?’”

Perrie adds that she and Zayn are still planning their wedding and don’t have a date yet.

Meanwhile, Zayn’s former band mates are revealing more details on their first album as a foursome. “There’s a few different sounds on the album, not all the songs sound the same, like, same vibe. They are all kind of different," Niall Horan tells Entertainment Tonight. "Couple of different guitars and drums. It’s a lot different than what we did before... but, it’s cool."

Liam Payne adds that fans of their old music will be satisfied too. “There’s a lot of old school vibes as well,” he explains. “I said before that it was quite Oasis-y but I was thinking about one song that I’ve been playing… it’s very diverse I think.”

On July 9, One Direction kicks off the North American leg of the On the Road Again Tour in San Diego, California. The guys confirmed they’ll be adding some new songs to their set list for the upcoming string of dates.

He also revealed that he had really bad tonsillitis when he recorded "I've Told You Now." "I wanted this version on the record, because I adored the imperfections in it," he explained. And he shared that "Leave Your Lover" remains his favorite track on the album. "It's so sweet & pretty sounding but the meaning is more heart wrenching than all the other songs," he tweeted.

In the Lonely Hour was released June 17, 2014 in the U.S.

ABC/Ida Mae AstuteFor those of you still keeping track, it appears Katy Perry and John Mayer are still “on.” According to E! News, the two visited Disneyland over Memorial Day Weekend and were spotted enjoying some of the theme park’s most popular rides together.

John was photographed seated behind Katy on one of the rides, and in another photo, the two both wore hoodies as they walked through the park side by side. A source also spied them grabbing a bite to eat at the exclusive eatery Club 33.

Apparently the two brought along some of their close friends for the weekend trip. Katy reportedly went on Space Mountain with her gal pals, while John opted to sit that one out. According to witnesses, the group stayed at the park until closing time.

Katy and John were last spotted getting cozy with each other at the Met Gala earlier this month, but they have yet to confirm that they’re officially a couple again. They first started dating in 2012 and broke up in February 2014. Earlier this year they reportedly decided to give things another try. Things seemed to fizzle out in March, but by April they were spotted hanging out together again.

Michael Becker/FOXKelly Clarkson was an unknown singer from Texas before American Idol gave her a shot at the big time. Now, she wants to give fellow unknown musicians a chance to be heard during her upcoming summer tour.

Over the holiday weekend, Kelly wrote on Twitter, "So I was inspired by an undiscovered artist who stopped me in the mall today. Everyone needs a shot. A moment on stage. So I'm starting....'Open Mic Night' on tour! One person from every city will get a spot in my set to shine! Please submit videos over Facebook or Twitter!"

No word on the criteria that will be used to select the lucky hopefuls to perform in each city. Kelly's tour starts July 11 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. 

Meanwhile, the singer has already given an extremely young unknown musician a shot...at YouTube stardom.   A 10-year-old girl named Ava asked Kelly to sing karaoke with her at a Nashville club Monday night, and the singer agreed. The two teamed up for the B-52s classic "Love Shack," and Ava's thrilled mom tweeted her thanks to Kelly.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCForbes has announced their list of the World’s Most Powerful Women of 2015, and Taylor Swift was named one of the most powerful women in entertainment. She ranks number 65 on the overall tally of 100 and joins 10 other women in the entertainment industry who made the list, including celebs like Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and Ellen DeGeneres.

Forbes notes that her album 1989 had the biggest first-week sales in 12 years and made Taylor the only artist ever to have three consecutive albums sell a million copies their first week. The publication also commends her for trademarking her lyrics and donating $50,000 to New York City public schools.

In addition to all of these accomplishments, Taylor kicked of a 78-date world tour this month. And if you think she makes pop stardom look easy, that’s because to her, it kind of is. She told BBC Radio 1 this weekend that touring the world is “not that hard.”

"If we're playing stadiums, I'll do two or three a week, not five shows a week, then I get to fly home in between,” she said. “It's not that bad…It's made out to be harder than it is."

The hardest part, she said, is leaving her cats behind. But the best part is feeling that sense of accomplishment at the end of each show. "That's the best part of this," she said. "When you walk off stage and you're drenched in sweat and you're tired and your legs hurt... it feels like you're really working for the job. It's nice to feel tired after a show. I'm like 'Oh my God, I'm finally doing something.'"

While performing can be tiring, Taylor makes sure to wind down every night by watching a couple of hours of TV. "I like Friends because I've seen every episode, so it's like switching my brain off,” she said. “I know exactly what they're about to say."

ABC/Kelsey McNeal; ABC/Randy HolmesDemi Lovato and Nick Jonas have partnered again. The former Camp Rock co-stars, along with talent manager and music executive Phil McIntyre, have formed their own record label.

Safehouse Records, a joint venture with Island Records, was conceived by the trio as a safe environment where artists can explore their creativity. In addition to signing new artists, both Demi and Nick -- who's currently signed to Island Records -- will release future music on Safehouse.

"It's incredibly exciting to be part of this new company where I'm in control of all aspects of my career. I can't wait to share what we're working on!"

Nick and Phil added in a joint statement: "Our focus at Safehouse Records is to put artists in control of their art while providing them the best tools to manage their careers. Through our partnership with Island Records they will also have access to the best marketing and promotion available."

Demi and Nick have been good pals since their Disney days. The two have a duet called "Avalanche" on Nick's self-titled solo album, and Nick was the musical director on Demi's Neon Lights tour. Demi also previously dated Nick's older brother, Joe.
