Lady Gaga tells Paper magazine that her new “Chromatica” album is about living in the moment. “I’ve been obsessed with the future for so long, going, ‘What’s next?’ And then I turned back and looked at my life. I unpacked all the things I’ve learned that have helped me and that have hurt me, and that taught me infinitely more. Now, the past informs my work. It’s like I was blocked because I was so obsessed with what was next, what was coming, what does it mean to go forward, that I didn’t realize I was already in the future. And where we are, where we stand in the present, is powerful.”

Bugle 24 says Camila Cabello is covering Beyonce’s ”Single Ladies” for the new Cinderella movie.

If you’ve ever wondered why artist The Weeknd is missing the E at the end of his name, he says the reason is because of copyright issues. “I hated my name at the start of my career, so I tried it as a stage name. It sounded cool. I took out the ‘e’ because there was already a Canadian band named The Weekend.”
