Gene Simmons tells Page Six that he is a Swiftie. "There’s no question, Taylor Swift has taken over and she’s great. I’m a fan. I know her, and she’s a really solid person. Other than that, I’m not sure what’s cool. “When we were growing up in the ’60s, we had Led Zeppelin, The [Rolling] Stones, The Beatles, Elvis, Pink Floyd, Madonna, Motown and all of that, Prince, David Bowie. All of that was happening at the same time. What’s happening now?”

You can have your own opinions as long as you're not forcing them on other people.”

Teddy Swims tells Billboard magazine that he wants to help people with his music. “I just want to be more vulnerable than I have been in the past because I feel like as much as I have the opportunity to do music for a living and people hear my feelings. I want to use my platform to ask for help and to tell people it’s OK to ask for help and tell people it’s OK to be vulnerable and to hurt, and if there’s not an answer that I have for you, there’s at least someone who’s also going through the same thing and you’re not crazy for feeling that way.”

Rihanna tells Entertainment Tonight that she's "starting over" on her highly anticipated ninth album, "R9."  "Music for me is a new discovery. I’m rediscovering things... Now I’m prepared to go back into the studio. Now I’m prepared. So I’m gonna start. Gimme a second."

What I suppose [attracted] me emotionally was that Edward was me. It’s exactly what I should be doing.”

Dear Fonseca,

I have two sons and a daughter. They are not going to camp this Summer. My home has become the epicenter of the neighborhood for them and their friends. What I've learned over the first part of their Summer break is that they and their friends are eating me out of house and home. Food is expensive and I have none at the moment because my kids and their friends are constantly eating it. I mentioned to one of my neighbors that I was thinking about asking the kids' parents for money since I am feeding them. My neighbor laughed and told me I am cheap. My mother says I have every right to ask for money. Would I be a bad neighbor if I did that? Is it wrong?
