ABC/Phil McCartenHarry Styles’ new haircut was on full display on the set of his new movie, Dunkirk. The One Direction heartthrob was snapped filming the World War II drama on the actual beaches of Dunkirk, France this week.

U.K.’s The Daily Mail has the photos, which feature Harry sporting a British military uniform and his freshly shorn locks. In one picture, he wears a bloody bandage on one hand. The 1940's costumes are quite a departure from his long-haired, tattooed pop star look.

The film, directed by Christopher Nolan, focuses on the massive military evacuation of British soldiers from Dunkirk in 1940. Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Kenneth Branagh also star.

Getty Images via ABCRihanna's new version of her Creepers instantly sold out today and crashed the Puma website

Ri-Ri’s third version of the sneakers went on sale at 10 a.m. ET and were out of stock in 45 minutes, Footwear News reports. However, the shoes will soon be available on Nordstrom.com. The company tweeted, “There's been an update with the Creepers. Expect them to release on our website on 5/31.”

The $140 kicks are offered in green-bordeaux, black satin and basket creeper glo for both men and women. Resellers immediately took advantage of the heavy demand, pricing the sneakers on eBay for $200-$350.

The new Creepers are Rihanna's latest Puma collection after their debut in fall 2015, followed by her trainer, and fur slides this year.

Photo by JB Lacroix/WireImageThe cat’s out of the bag! Leona Lewis will be making her Broadway debut as Grizabella in the upcoming revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, CATS. The show will return to the Broadway this summer at the Neil Simon Theatre.

“It is an incredible honor to be asked by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber to join the CATS family,” Leona says in a statement. “I will never forget seeing the show as a little girl and how blown away I was by the magical experience of it.”

She adds, “I am beyond thrilled for my Broadway debut to be in such an iconic show. To work with a team as legendary as those on CATS is an experience I will cherish every moment of. I cannot wait to see the audiences out in NYC!”

Andrew Lloyd Webber says Leona “has one of the greatest voices of her generation” and that everyone is “excited about working with her.”

Initially, Nicole Scherzinger was tapped for the role, but she pulled out of the show earlier this month, right before rehearsals were set to begin. Nicole played Grizabella for the show’s West End run in 2014.

Preview performances begin Thursday, July 14, and the show officially opens Sunday, July 31.

Photo by Gareth Cattermole/Getty ImagesEven Adele forgets the lyrics sometimes. At a recent concert in Lisbon, Portugal, the singer totally blanked on the lines of her song “Million Years Ago.”

A fan caught the flub on video and Adele’s reaction was priceless -- not to mention profanity-laden. “S***, wrong words,” she said, laughing. “S***, s***, s***. I started singing the verse! Sorry!”

The audience didn't seem to mind, and laughed along with her.

It’s not the first time she’s botched a line on this tour. She forgot the words to “I Miss You” during her gig in Manchester, England back in March and messed up her hit “Rolling in the Deep” during another show this month. Hey, she's only human.

In the accompanying article, Nick dishes on everything from the breakup that inspired his new album, to the self-doubt he experienced a few years back. “To be 21 and think, ‘All right, is my career over? Have I blown it, or do people just not care?’ There were a lot of questions and self-doubt,” he says.

Now, he’s proven himself as a solo star. His DirecTV show Kingdom returns June 1, his sophomore album Last Year Was Complicated comes out June 10, and his joint tour with Demi Lovato launches June 29. Told you he has a busy summer.

Getty Images via ABCDNCE is riding high on the success of their hit "Cake by the Ocean": their performance of the song at the Billboard Music Awards was one of the top 5 most Shazamed moments of the whole show.  They're also winning over new fans every night as the opening act for Selena Gomez's Revival Tour, and frontman Joe Jonas says it's great to be on tour with "a familiar face."

Joe, of course, is a former Disney star, as is Selena.  In fact, Selena used to date Joe's brother Nick, but there isn't any residual awkwardness. 

"It’s going amazing," Joe says of the tour.  He tells ABC Radio, "I think Selena is a great performer and for us to be a part of that tour, it feels kinda like a family on the road. And we get to play about 40 minutes so it’s a pretty good, long show and we’re just excited to get up there and do our thing."

"It’s good to see familiar faces in this music industry," Joe tells ABC Radio. "It can be a tough place to have friends."  He says there's an unspoken connection between all the former Disney stars who've gone on to pop success.

"You nod your head when you see each other ‘cause you’re, like, either you’re the ones who made it or the ones who are still doing it," he explains. "And it just feels good to make it this far, and continue to be creative and come up with stuff that you’re really, really proud of."

Speaking of stuff that you can be proud of, Joe says that Nick's new album, Last Year Was Complicated, is "awesome."

"I’m really proud of him and I think it’s his best body of work that he’s made," Joe says.  

DNCE's new single and video, "Toothbrush," is out now.  No word yet on when their full-length debut album will arrive.

Getty Images via ABCRihanna continues to expand her fashion empire with her latest creation, Christian Dior sunglasses.

As her third version of Puma creepers arrive in stores Thursday, the Dior brand ambassador unveiled her new venture, futuristic shades, on Instagram.

“I’ve always been obsessed with his eyewear, and when I got to Dior and saw all the materials I could play with, it all just came together,” Rihanna said in a statement to Women’s Wear Daily.

“I spent a day at Dior with their eyewear design team,” she adds. “I started by looking through all the archives to see what they’ve done in the past, then got acquainted with all the new materials. I literally sat there and drew and drew until I was happy with the design, and the team illustrated it for me right then and there."

Rihanna says after that, it was only "a matter of weeks" before the first prototype was a reality.

The “Rihanna” sunglasses feature a metallic frame inspired by the vision-enhancing appliance worn by Levar Burton’s Geordi La Forge character in Star Trek: The Next Generation. La Forge was blind, and required the special eyepiece to see. The singular style will be available in several colors, including silver, pink, blue, green and red.

The sunglasses will go on sale at Dior stores in early June. Prices start at $840, going up to $1,950 for the 24-karat gold-plated frames.

Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCEarlier this week, Jennifer Lopez released a limited edition T-shirt emblazoned with the words, “Lucky to have these curves.” And indeed she knows how lucky she is. In The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast, J. Lo discusses her famous figure and how it wasn’t always so famous.

"In traditional movies, that wasn't the figure unless you were playing, like, the femme fatale or the bombshell or something like that,” she says. “You couldn't be the serious lead. We kind of broke that mold."

Still, there were times when being the lead role in a movie didn’t exactly work out. Gigli, for instance, was an infamous failure -- but Jennifer says she never took it that hard.

"I never thought of it as, 'Oh, this is terrible! My career's over!' I just never thought that,” she says. “I just knew that that movie didn't work and that's all it was, or that relationship didn't work and that's all it was. It wasn't going to end me, personally or professionally."

She adds that even when she got married and had kids and her career slowed down a bit, she always knew she'd bounce back. “I realized, 'Yeah, you're gonna be even better than you were before. Watch,'” she says. “Those are the kind of talks that I had with myself."

Now, though, she acknowledges that fame bothers her more as she gets older. "When you're young it's like a shock at first, and you kind of have anxiety about it, but then you get used to that life and it just becomes your normal life,” she says. “And now? I think when I had kids and stuff, I was like -- I wanted a little more freedom to go outside and not have them have to deal with that part of it."

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty ImagesIt seems Hillary Clinton is courting the Beyhive vote. During a Facebook Live Q&A session on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday, the Democratic presidential candidate answered a crucial Beyonce question posed by Taylor Swift.

“This is from Taylor Swift,” Ellen prefaced the question. “’Have you seen Lemonade and do you like it?’”

"I have seen parts of it, and I do like it," Hillary responded.

Later on, during a game of “Who’d You Rather?,” Hillary chose Beyonce over Leonardo DiCaprio. "I really believe in making lemonade out of lemons," she said. Beyonce won a number of rounds of the game, but ultimately lost out to first lady Michelle Obama.

ABC/Randy HolmesPink is back in a big way with her first single in three years, "Just Like Fire," from the new movie Alice Through the Looking Glass.  What was she doing in her time off?  Appearing on Good Morning America on Wednesday, the singer said she was spending lots of time with her daughter, Willow.

"I love being a mama," she told ABC's Abby Boudreau. "I made a choice a long time ago that I was going to have a successful family and that is my absolute number one goal in life."

Of course, just because Pink has a tight-knit family -- her, her husband Carey Hart and Willow -- doesn't mean that she can't tease them a bit.  Asked if she'd be interested in having another baby, Pink told Good Morning America she feels like she already has one.

"I wanna say that Carey Hart is an awesome husband and a really good dad. But he’s also like a second child," she laughed.  As for Willow, she called her out for not being her mom's biggest fan.

"She finds my singing distracting," Pink revealed. "When she was two she was [like], 'Shh, mama. Terrible voice.'"  She laughs, "First of all, who taught you the word terrible? I had a number one when you were in my belly!"

Another thing Pink did during her time off was to take a break from her rigorous training schedule, which meant she put on a few pounds.  Internet trolls tried to shame her online, but she didn't stand for it, and as she explained on Good Morning America, she isn't having it.

"There’s so many different kinds of bodies. How can you shame one over the other?" she pointed out.  "My thing is, if you have all four limbs and all five senses, you’re doing A-OK. And anybody that has an issue with that needs to find some gratitude."

Pink also talked about why she wanted to do a song for Alice Through the Looking Glass.

"The movie sort of celebrates uniqueness and that’s a huge theme in our house, so I’m a fan all around," she explained.  No wonder one of the lines in the song is, "No one can be just like me anyway."

ABC/Phil McCartenOne Direction’s Niall Horan is hitting back at abusive so-called fans. In a series tweets, the singer reveals that in recent days, he’s been the victim of a barrage of nasty messages.

“For the last two weeks I've been receiving messages [from] a group of fans, they have drowned my phone in messages, keeping me awake at night,” he writes.

Niall continues, “But the worst part is. They have been nothing but abusive. Saying things you wouldn't even believe about me and my family. And saying the worst things ever about my little nephew. Thank god I'm not the kind of person who thinks into stuff like this.”

He adds that he thinks “it’s crazy” how we let people get away with this kind of bullying. “And the sad thing is as I tweet this they are in the group chat laughing at me,” he says.
But he doesn’t want people’s sympathy -- he simply wants to highlight the issue. “Don’t worry about me,” he writes. “Im the most carefree, laid back person around. But I'm just signalling it, because this s*** is happening to others.”

Mike Coppola/Getty ImagesAfter Beyonce released her tour-de-force "visual album" Lemonade, which documented the emotional journey of a woman -- presumably she -- cheated on by her husband, the husband's now made his first public commentary on the matter.

Many have wondered how Bey's hubby Jay Z felt about Lemonade.  He even appears in the film, even though it seemingly outs him as a cheater.  E! Online reports Jay's now released a new rap that addresses the subject. Titled "All the Way," it's a collaboration with Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana and Infared.

At the beginning of Jay's verse, he raps, "You know you made it when the fact your marriage made it is worth millions/Lemonade is a popular drink and it still is/Survival of the littlest."

E! notes that the "Lemonade" part of the lyric is a reference to a line in the 1992 Gang Starr track "DWYCK," in which the late MC Guru raps, "Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is/I get more props and stunts than Bruce Willis."

E! adds that Jay uses his verse to refer to Prince, rapping, "Prince left his masters where they safe and sound/We never gonna let the elevator take him down."  That's a reference to a line in Prince's hit "Let's Go Crazy:" "Are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?/Oh, no, let's go!"

The song is now streaming exclusively, of course, on Jay Z's platform, Tidal.
