Collier SchorrLady Gaga continues her Dive Bar tour tonight at a mystery location, but she’s not keeping everything a secret. A promo for the tour reveals a short snippet of the title track of her upcoming album, Joanne.
In the video clip for the Bud Light-sponsored show, Gaga dances around a bar with a gal pal as the song plays. “Where do you think you’re going, girl?” she sings on the track.
The song and album title pay tribute to Gaga’s late aunt, who died 12 years before she was born.
Joanne -- which also includes the songs “Perfect Illusion,” “A-YO,” and “Million Reasons” -- comes out Friday.
ABC/Image Group LAJustin Timberlake is saying “hi” to Bai. The singer is teaming up with the beverage company Bai Brands as an investor and the brand’s first Chief Flavor Officer.
So what exactly does that mean? Justin will be working closely with the Bai executive team on developing new flavors, marketing campaigns and digital content, among other things.
"As a father and someone who is cautious about what my family and I consume, I love what Bai stands for,” Justin says in a statement. “This partnership was created from a shared desire to help people put better ingredients in their bodies without sacrificing taste."
The drinks come in different fruity flavors, but contain no artificial sweeteners and are five calories and one gram of sugar per serving.
ABC/Randy HolmesKnock, knock -- it's Miley Cyrus at the door.
The singer will be campaigning for Hillary Clinton this weekend in Northern Virginia by knocking on young voters’ doors. She’ll also visit students at George Mason University Saturday to speak to them about Hillary’s vision for the country and the importance of voting next month.
Miley will be urging students to visit IWillVote.com, so they’ll be prepared for Election Day November 8.
Getty Images via ABCLukas Graham's just done something only three other artists have managed to do this year.
The Danish band's self-titled U.S. debut album has gone gold, signifying sales of 500,000 copies. The only other debut acts to have accomplished that this year are Rachel Platten, Charlie Puth and rapper/singer Kevin Gates.
In addition, the band's breakthrough hit "7 Years" has been certified quadruple platinum, for sales of four million downloads.
The group is now gearing up for the release of a new single, "You're Not There." Their North American headline tour starts November 10 in Canada.
On top of all that, Lukas Graham is being frequently mentioned as a possibly Grammy nominee. Before they learn if they've made the cut, they'll perform at another awards ceremony: the MTV EMAs, which take place November 9 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. They're up for four trophies, including Best Song.
Brian HigbeeAndy Grammer's video for his latest hit, "Fresh Eyes," is a powerful commentary on homelessness in America. It shows him and his team visiting the Union Rescue Mission in L.A., spending time with residents and giving them new clothes, haircuts and other necessities. But says Andy: don't use the word "makeover."
"Makeover sounds cheesy...we gave people what they needed," Andy tells ABC Radio. "They have nothing, so you give somebody a jean jacket...a good shave, a solid haircut and...as far as the ladies...you put a little makeup on them and make them feel good."
As a street musician, Andy spent a lot of time with the homeless, and what he learned, he says, is that "the interaction is the most important part. You can give somebody a sandwich and that's cool, but seeing them beyond being 'homeless' is a really, really big deal."
Andy admits it's "scary" to use a video to comment on social issues. "Anytime that you do something like this… you have to push through this weird zone of, 'Is this OK? Is this a horrible idea? Am I gonna look like an idiot? Am I gonna try and profit off of people who don't have anything?'"
Ultimately, Andy profited from the experience as much as the Mission residents did.
"It was by far the best day of my year. It's unbelievable," he says. "I hope that everybody watches it and feels something like what I felt that day."
The singer also plans to continue supporting the Mission. "We're going to be raising money to go to this shelter specifically and then I also do want to...get back there and just give attention. Give love. You know, have them feel seen."
Streamline/Interscope Records"Perfect Illusion," the first single from Lady Gaga's new album Joanne, seems to be pretty polarizing. Her fans love it, but other artists...not so much. But Gaga and her collaborator on the single, Mark Ronson, aren't taking the criticism lying down.
First, Alex Pall of The Chainsmokers said in Rolling Stone that "Perfect Illusion" "sucks." Gaga responded by releasing her new single "A-YO," and then tweeting at The Chainsmokers, saying, "maybe u guys'll like this 1 better." The band, duly chastised, responded, "Haha @ladygaga RESPECT," and adding a high-five emoji.
Then, Patrick Carney of the alt-rock band The Black Keys appeared on HBO's Vice News Tonight, and said the guitar on "Perfect Illusion" "sounds so s*****." He added, "It’s like 'Eye of the Tiger,' but not even nearly as good as that. It sounds like Hulk Hogan is playing the f****** guitar."
Mark Ronson responded by retweeting the recent announcement that his song "Uptown Funk" had been certified Diamond for sales of over 10 million copies, and added, "I also remember my good friend @patrickcarney sitting in my living room, hearing uptown funk and telling me it wouldn't work." Gaga retweeted Mark's comments.
To be fair, Carney admitted that "Perfect Illusion" was "growing on" him, adding, "That’s one of those things. That’s the thing about music: The more you hear something, the more you like it. That’s why payola worked."
ABC/Fred LeeZedd’s documentary, True Colors, has arrived. The film, about the DJ-producer’s life and career, has debuted exclusively on iTunes.
The documentary features live concert footage, interviews with Zedd’s family and music industry execs, and insights from Zedd himself. In addition, it will follow fans as they attend unique color-themed events Zedd set up across the country last year in celebration of his True Colors album.
“I’m super excited to share all those intimate moments from my life and the True Colors events with you all,” Zedd says in a statement. “I wanted to give my fans an experience of a life time and I hope everyone enjoys watching it come to life."
The film will expand to other select streaming services beginning November 8.
ABC/Ida Mae AstuteTaylor Swift has made New York City her home, so it’s only fitting that Manhattan should host a museum exhibit dedicated to the star. “The Taylor Swift Experience” will be coming to the city’s South Street Seaport area starting November 18.
The exhibit was first created for the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles in 2014, where it became its most popular exhibit to date. Its New York City debut marks its first opening on the East Coast.
“The Taylor Swift Experience” will feature Taylor’s costumes, handwritten lyrics, home videos and some personal photographs. Tickets are $9 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster starting today.
The exhibit will be on display through February 19. After that, it heads to the Grammy Museum Mississippi in Cleveland, Mississippi.
S-Curve RecordsAndy Grammer's latest hit, "Fresh Eyes," is about looking at the one you love in a different light, and falling in love with them all over again. But when it came time to make the song's video, Andy wanted to focus on looking at an entire group of people in a different light: the homeless.
In the video, Andy and his team are seen visiting the Union Rescue Mission in downtown L.A. and spending time with the homeless residents there, listening to their stories. They're also shown providing the residents with haircuts, shaves, makeovers and new clothes, as well as some good food and music, courtesy of Andy. Finally, we see them receiving backpacks filled with necessities.
The video is both uplifting and touching: as the residents are turned around to look at themselves in the mirror following their makeovers, some of them actually shed tears of joy at their transformation.
At the end of the video, Andy says, "I've cared a lot about homelessness for a while now and getting to apply the 'Fresh Eyes' concept to this group who are way too often marginalized and even seen as invisible was a super-powerful experience for me."
He adds that all the proceeds from the video will go to the United Rescue Mission, and tells fans how to donate themselves if they want to support the cause.
Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCTaylor Swift’s bestie Lily Aldridge has something to say to all those squad haters out there -- namely, that their friendship is genuine.
"We are a really nice group of women who support each other and really, genuinely have each other’s back and it's awesome," the model tells E! News. "That's something to be about."
The squad -- which also includes Cara Delevingne, Lorde, Dakota Johnson and Zoe Kravitz -- recently hit the town together for a private Kings of Leon concert and after-party. The band’s frontman, Caleb Followill, is Lily’s husband.
So will there ever be a Kings of Leon/Taylor Swift collab? "Who knows? Maybe!” Lily says. “We're all besties.”
Meanwhile, in other Taylor news, the singer has filed a motion in Denver to seal records pertaining to her case over a groping incident back in 2013. According to the Denver Post, portions of the documents include photographs from the night of the incident, which Taylor claims proves she was inappropriately touched by a Denver radio talk-show host.

At a recent concert in Birmingham, England, Justin stopped himself in the middle of a story to ask the crowd to quiet down.
“Can you guys do me a favor? Can you guys just relax for about two seconds?” Justin said in a fan-captured video. “I get it, I get it, but I’m like two feet away from you. And I can hear you. I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing. But can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious.”
The audience continued to cheer, though a few people started booing. Justin continued to explain, “I get it, it’s been in our blood and it’s ingrained -- you go to a concert and you scream and stuff. But if you could just scream after the song, enjoy the song, and then take a chill pill for a second and listen to me speak.”
He added, “I don’t feel like I’m being heard sometimes, and it gets a little frustrating. When I’m speaking, can you guys not scream at the top of your lungs?”
The fans quieted down a bit and he resumed his story. Justin has eight more tour dates in the U.K. this month.
Jason Merritt/Getty Images via ABCThe dates and locations where Katy Perry, Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Lopez will perform in support of Hillary Clinton have been revealed.
Katy will do a Get Out the Vote performance November 5 in Philadelphia for Clinton as part of her campaign's "Love Trumps Hate" concert series. Earlier this year, Katy performed at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
Jon Bon Jovi will perform October 27 in Pittsburgh, and November 5 in Tampa, Florida, and Jennifer Lopez will sing October 29 in Miami. Earlier this year, Jon joined Clinton and Senator Cory Booker at a rally at New Jersey's Rutgers University. J-Lo endorsed Clinton last year.
In a statement, J-Lo said, "This election is one of the most important in our lifetime. Florida, home to one of my favorite cities, Miami, and millions of Latinos is a pivotal state in this election. It’s time to unify, support, and vote for the only choice that makes sense not only for Women or for Latinos, but for all Americans. Vote for Hillary. I’m with her.”
Additional details about the concerts, including ticket info, will be released soon.
Courtesy RCA RecordsBruno Mars' new single "24K Magic" just debuted at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100, but he's now got something better than 24-karat gold: a diamond. Diamond certification, that is.
"Uptown Funk," Bruno's collaboration with Mark Ronson, has just been certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America for sales of more than 10 million copies. In fact, it's sold more than 12 million downloads. That makes it one of only five songs that have sold 11 million copies or more in the entire history of the Gold & & Platinum program, which dates back to 1958.
Mark and Bruno are now one of only 10 acts who've scored one or more Diamond-certified singles. Tweeting his gratitude, Mark wrote, "Thank you. That's beyond any notion of a semblance of a fantasy we could have ever had."
The Grammy-winning "Uptown Funk" achieved its record-setting sales in just two years: it was released in November of 2014. It went on to top the chart for 14 weeks, making it the second-longest running #1 song in U.S. chart history.
Bruno's new album, also called 24K Magic, arrives next month.
ABC/Randy HolmesJohn Legend's new single "Love Me Now" is about being present and throwing yourself into a relationship, without thinking of what the future will bring. He says that's the way he looks at his own marriage to Chrissy Teigen.
"You just have to try and be with each other as much as you can, cherish every moment,” John tells Entertainment Tonight."Enjoy each moment. Go out of your way, do fun things together as a couple and as a family. And we try to do as much of that as we can while still working and you know maintaining our careers.”
John and Chrissy also feel that way about raising their baby daughter Luna.
"We just try and make every day as great as we can for her, help her grow into the kind of human we want her to be, and try and make every moment as stress-free and joyous for her as possible,” he tells ET.
John and Chrissy are friendly with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and John says he "feels really bad" about Kim's robbery in Paris.
"It makes you think about everything," he says. "The world...is not full of danger at every turn, but there is enough out there that you need to be aware of it, and be as cautious as you can while still enjoying yourself and not living in a box and kind of imprisoning yourself to the fear that something could happen.”

Bruno Mars will bring the funk to the American Music Awards next month when he delivers the opening performance.
Bruno’s been a winner at the American Music Awards, taking home the trophy for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist in 2011. However, although he’s performed at the Grammys even the Super Bowl, he’s never performed on the AMAs, if you can believe it.
It’s no coincidence Bruno’s performance will come just two days after his new album, 24K Magic, is scheduled for release. The title track debuted this week at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 following his performance last weekend on NBC's Saturday Night Live.
The American Music Awards will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday, November 20 at 8:00pm ET on ABC.
Larry Busacca/Getty Images for TASTaylorSwift took to Instagram on Tuesday and gave fans a brief sample of what fans can expect when she takes the stage before Saturday's Formula One United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
"Hey guys, I can't wait to see you this weekend in Austin, Texas," Swift, 26, says in one clip, before joking to someone off-camera, "just so they don't go to the wrong place...people get lost."
Another post, captioned "Band practice," shows Taylor and her band performing her 2012 hit, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." In a third, she's seen strumming an acoustic guitar.
The one-off concert will reportedly be her only show in 2016.
Rumors have been circulating recently that Taylor may be releasing an album later this month, according to People magazine, but there is no word on whether she'll be previewing any new music on Saturday.
Binci Liebowitz on "The Voice"; Tyler Golden/NBCThe battle rounds wrapped up on The Voice Tuesday night, with Blake Shelton using his second and last steal in the final moments.
Blake and fellow coaches Adam Levine, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys now have eight artists each on their teams.
We saw three of this season's advisers -- Sammy Hagar, with Team Adam; Bette Midler, with Team Blake; and Charlie Puth, with Team Alicia -- help out the contestants during rehearsals.
Team Miley was already set and was not featured Tuesday night.
The one-hour episode began with a Team Blake battle between Austin Allsup and Preston James. Adviser Bette Midler instructed them not to be afraid and have fun with their performance of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic "Bad Moon Rising."
After watching the two artists perform, Adam said Austin was great right off the bat, while Preston showed talent at a young age -- 16. Blake added that Preston is on the "fast track." However, he named Austin the winner, citing his experience. Preston was eliminated.
Team Alicia's Gabriel Violett went up against not one, but two singers: sister act Shannon and Whitney. Adviser Charlie Puth taught them how to reach the high notes on their rendition of "More than Words" by Extreme.
Miley said she was rendered speechless by what she saw from these artists on The Voice stage. She learned towards Shannon and Whitney because she was "infatuated" with the duo. Alicia said Gabriel was unafraid to soar with his vocals, and that the sisters emanate love and show the world what music can look and sound like. Alicia kept Shannon and Whitney on her team. Gabriel was sent home.
For the final battle of the season, Team Adam's Bindi Liebowitz and Brendan Fletcher were paired up for Marc Broussard's "Home."
After the two artists belted out the song in front of the coaches, Adam described Bindi's vocals as middle register, similar to Rihanna. He said Brendan has an "otherworldly" and "thunderous" approach to performing. Adam picked Brendan as the winner. Not surprisingly, Blake -- who still had a steal to use -- added Bindi to his team.
The Knockout Rounds begin Monday night on NBC, with husband-and-wife country superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill serving as advisers.
Here's a rundown of each coach's artists:
Team Adam: Jason Warrior, Dave Moisan, Riley Elmore, Billy Gilman, Brendan Fletcher, Nolan Neal, Simone Gundy, Ponciano Seoane.
Team Blake: Sundance Head, Dana Harper, Gabe Broussard, Karlee Metzger, Austin Allsup, Josh Gallagher, Courtney Harrell, Bindi Liebowitz.
Team Alicia: Courtnie Ramirez, Christian Cuevas, Sa’Rayah, Wé McDonald, Michael Sanchez, Shannon and Whitney, Kylie Rothfield, Belle Jewel.
Team Miley: Ali Caldwell, Lauren Diaz, Sophia Urista, Josh Halverson, Aaron Gibson, Darby Walker, Maye Thomas, Josette Diaz.
Image Group LA/ABCIt's the ultimate Justin Bieber souvenir: a used milk glass with his spit on it. This particular item is currently for sale on eBay's British site, where it's attracted a high bid of just over 80 thousand dollars.
Justin is currently on tour in the U.K. and a few days ago, he stopped into the Kings Oak Hotel in Essex for dinner. According to numerous reports, he ordered salmon, mashed potatoes and a glass of milk. When the Bieb was done dining, a forward-thinking restaurant employee quickly scooped up the dirty pint glass and posted it on the auction site.
"I work at the kings oak hotel where Justin bieber was seen...having dinner and we kept his milk glass, it hasn't been washed!" reads the product description.
And before you dismiss this as an ugly cash grab, you'll be glad to know that 10 percent of the proceeds will go to the Essex South West Branch of the RSPCA, the British equivalent of the ASPCA.
You have a couple days more left to bid: the auction closes on October 21.
Chapman BaehlerWhile the exact date of his child's birth is a secret, Lukas Graham Forchhammer, frontman for the Danish band Lukas Graham, has just welcomed his first child, a daughter, with his girlfriend. Lukas thinks he'll be a great dad because his late father, who inspired his hit "7 Years," was a great dad. In particular, Lukas says he appreciated the way his pop handled the dreaded "drug talk."
"My dad caught me high...when I was 15 years old," Lukas tells ABC Radio. "And he didn't start yelling at me and screaming and shouting, being the typical angry father, telling me, 'Don't smoke weed!'"
Instead, Lukas recalls, "He sat me down...and he said, 'OK, now I'm going to tell you what the different drugs do to you, and how they're going to inhibit your learning and your education.' And that talk made me not smoke until I was past my 18th birthday!"
Now, Lukas' dad had some experience in these matters: he even went to the 1969 Woodstock festival. So if he had tried to tell Lukas not to do drugs, the singer says, "I'd be like, dude, whatever, you're taking whatever, seeing Jimi Hendrix perform at the Woodstock festival!'"
"So in some sense, I think he took the high road," Lukas adds. So where did his dad learn to be such a great parent? From his dad, Lukas' grandfather, who Lukas also considers an excellent role model.
He tells ABC Radio, "[My dad] said when he turned 16, his father had taken him to a pub, bought him a pint, and said, 'If you can't hold your drink, don't ever drink.'"
Lukas and his girlfriend will be home in Denmark with the baby until November, and then the band heads back to the U.S. for a huge headlining tour which will take them well into 2017.
