Adam Levine tells the BBC that Maroon 5 has a high criteria about what songs to include on their albums. "Quality control is the number one criteria to us: If a song doesn't feel special, we wouldn't include it. And we don't mean that in a cheap way. We mean that like, "Could this song connect with the world?" Then, after we decide that, we say, "but is this the kind of hit song we want to have on our record?"
Dua Lipa tells Hunger magazine that she tried to behave when she was living on her own as a teen in London. "I tried to be as good as I could so my parents wouldn’t worry, but there were times when I told them I was going to bed and then I’d go out partying with a fake ID. So many weird things happen in London that being around nightlife at a young age can sometimes feel a bit dark and sinister, but I could always hold my own."
N'SYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick tells Variety magazine that he used to dislike AJ McLean of the Backstreet Boys. "There was a time when I couldn't be in the same room with this guy. But there's always been a mutual respect, and now that we're all parents, we've grown up. Reflecting on things, it's cool to see what each of the bands did and how it all worked together. It really was this symbiotic relationship with Backstreet, 98 Degrees, us and even O-Town and other bands that came in."
Taylor Swift tells Rolling Stone magazine that she knew she couldn't have a successful career without haters eventually trying to ruin it. "I felt like I was walking along the sidewalk, knowing eventually the pavement was going to crumble and I was gonna fall through. You can’t keep winning and have people like it. People love “new” so much — they raise you up the flagpole, and you’re waving at the top of the flagpole for a while. And then they’re like, “Wait, this new flag is what we actually love.” They decide something you’re doing is incorrect, that you’re not standing for what you should stand for. You’re a bad example. Then if you keep making music and you survive, and you keep connecting with people, eventually they raise you a little bit up the flagpole again, and then they take you back down, and back up again. And it happens to women more than it happens to men in music."
Bruno Mars tells Rolling Stone magazine that he was heavily influenced by '90's bands. "I’m a child raised in the ’90s. Pop music was heavily rooted in R&B from Whitney, Diddy, Dr. Dre, Boyz II Men, Aaliyah, TLC, Babyface, New Edition, Michael, and so much more. As kids this is what was playing on MTV and the radio. This is what we were dancing to at school functions and BBQs. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for these artists who inspired me."
TMZ says Kanye West has taken Bradley Cooper's ex, Irina Shayk, on a trip to France. They were spotted smiling and walking together at a luxury boutique hotel in Provence. The website says the couple may be more than just Friends with Benefits
A source tells Life & Style Weekly Magazine, “Kim heard about the rumors that he was pursuing Irina. She wasn’t surprised. He’s always loved her look, and she’s a supermodel. Kanye loves the fashion and modeling world, so this makes complete sense. Kanye wanted to be the first one to move on with someone new. Actually, Kim did too. She wasn’t going to be seen out publicly on dates until Kanye was. It wasn’t an official plan between them, but they did talk about it. It was a weird, show of respect thing. Who knows how serious this will become, but Kim thinks it’s healthy for Kanye to move on. The rest of the Kardashians are happy for him too. This was bound to happen. Now, all eyes are on Kim and whom she’ll be seen out and about with.”
In touch Weekly Magazine claims Bradley Cooper allegedly hopes that Kanye's romance with Irina fizzles out. A source tells the magazine, “It‘s only a matter of time before [all of the hype] spills over into his daughter Lea’s life. Bradley is very protective of his daughter. Bradley is happy that Irina is dating. What he’s not happy about is who she is dating. He hates all the publicity she’s getting and will continue to get because she’s now with Kanye. Bradley knows better than anyone how a celebrity romance can get completely out of hand. His friendship with Lady Gaga is the perfect example. Bradley was already concerned about Lea getting recognized or labeled for being his and Irina’s daughter. But now with Kanye, that’s an entirely different level of celebrity. He doesn’t want that for Lea.”
OK! magazine says Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are in love again. A source tells the magazine, “Very much in love after rekindling their old flame.

They are soulmates and always have been.”
US Weekly Magazine says Alex Rodriguez is heartbroken that Jennifer Lopez dumped him in favor of Ben Affleck. A source tells the magazine, “Alex is still very sore and in a world of pain. It’s the first time anyone can remember him being dumped like this, at least publicly. While he and J. Lo have tried to sugar coat it, there’s zero doubt it’s really hurt his ego. Seeing her running straight back to Ben’s arms is a real kick in the teeth. There’s a part of him that still clings onto the hope that they’ll wind up together again but deep down he’s had to accept the harsh truth that she’s over him and moving on with Ben. It’s a tough pill to swallow but that’s his new reality. There wasn’t any overlap, really. Jen was very intent on parting ways amicably with Alex and being respectful to him. Jen got back in touch with Ben after it became apparent to her that things with Alex weren’t working anymore. They’d already sounded each other out about it from afar, like, when Ben heaped praise on Jen in interviews. [Meanwhile] she made it very plain to their mutual friends that she was open to getting back in touch.”
US Weekly Magazine says Jennifer Garner approves of Ben Affleck dating Jennifer Lopez. A source tells the magazine,“J. Lo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval. J. Lo thinks Jennifer is a kind and wonderful person and an amazing mother. Jen and Ben are both very happy with each [other] and are excited to see where the relationship goes.''
Kevin Hart tells Entertainment Tonight that he has the perfect household and is not interested in having more children. We're in a good place, a family of six and a couple of dogs, it's a lot going on right now. I say that jokingly but, you know, look, if it's what the universe calls for and it's what we've decided, then it is what it is. We're in love with being parents, we're in love with all the little ones that we have now. I mean, we got teenagers and two toddlers, man. It's the perfect separation of age. It's the perfect household. It's everything that you would think it is plus more."
