Peggy SirotaThe Jonas Brothers didn't sing at Joe Jonas' quickie Las Vegas wedding to Sophie Turner -- Dan Shay did.  But the trio might bust out a tune or two when the couple tie the knot in another ceremony later this month.

A source tells Us Weekly that the wedding will take place in France in "late June," and adds, "Joe and Sophie want to have a huge party. The decor is going to be sophisticated, but there’ll be some kitschy elements, including a really wild cake."

"There’ll be a live band, and the Jonas Brothers are expected to take the stage," dishes the source.

Joe is the last Jonas Brother to tie the knot. Nick married Priyanka Chopra on December 1, 2018.  Kevin Jonas married his wife Danielle in 2009; they have two children.

ABC/Craig SjodinKaty Perry, Star Wars nerd?

The singer and American Idol judge spent Tuesday indulging her inner Jedi at Disneyland's new Galaxy's Edge theme park, which recreates the Star Wars universe in amazing detail. 

On her Instagram, you can see Katy posing onboard the park's full-scale recreation of Han Solo's Millennium Falcon, watching fireworks explode outside the iconic "hunk of junk" spaceship, making her own lightsaber, indulging in a lightsaber battle and enjoying otherworldly concoctions at Oga's Cantina.

There's also a picture of young boy wearing a Resistance pilot's helmet and an R2-D2 backpack -- he may be Finn, the son of Katy's fiance Orlando Bloom.

"May the 18th be with u!" she captioned the photos and videos. "Did I do it right?"

In other Katy news, she retweeted a clip of two members of the British band Bastille talking about how much they love Katy and her new single "Never Really Over" during a radio appearance in the Netherlands. 

She replied with a request for a collaboration, writing, "maaaaates pls hv ur ppl call my ppl or my ppl will call ur ppl lets make a chune."

"Amazing," Bastille replied. "We'd bloody love to. We'll find some ppl to cold call your ppl and see if they pick up."

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for The People's Choice AwardsBack in 2015, when Camila Cabello was still a member of Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes had just scored his first hit with "Stitches," they teamed up for a top 20 duet, "I Know What You Did Last Summer."  Well, now they're both superstars...and they're getting back together for another collaboration.

Camila tweeted a brief clip of what looks like a new video, in which she plays a diner waitress and Shawn plays one of her customers.  They exchange glances; he follows her out the back door of the restaurant, she looks up at him flirtatiously, and we hear one word whispered: "Senorita."

Shawn tweeted a scene of what looks like the same video: He and Camila appear to be kissing, and then he's seen looking off in the distance, distraught, while she's standing behind the counter at the diner looking wistful.

Earlier this week, Camila tweeted that her new music was coming "SOONER THAN YOU THINK," and it appears she wasn't lying.

A fan captured comments on Instagram in which Camila wrote, "IKWYDLS part 2????" and Shawn replied, "IKWYDLS part 2!!!!!"

Even the duo's fellow pop stars are excited.  Julia Michaels, who worked with Shawn on his current album, commented, "Did everyone just die from watching this?!" 

Ryan Tedder, who worked on both Shawn's album and Camila's album, wrote, "How dare u. How DARE YOU."

After the success of her first official solo single, "Low Key," Ally Brooke of Fifth Harmony is now out with a new single, "Lips Don't Lie," which highlights her sexy, sultry side.

"I couldn't wait for people to hear the way I sang this...I kind of use a different, airy, breathy tone," Ally tells ABC Radio. "I love this record so much. As soon as I heard it, I knew, 'This is the one for me.' I had to have it, and I have it now, which is really awesome!"

Ally also enjoyed making the video, which features extreme close-ups of her lips coated in various shades of dark purple, red, pink and glitter.  She didn't even mind that her hair kept getting stuck to her lips and the glitter wouldn't stay put.

"It was messy...glitter specks from the glitter lips got on my face, so we had to be really meticulous and clean it up, but it was still fun," she laughs.

The song's title, Ally says, is definitely a nod to Shakira's "Hips Don't Lie."

"I'm a huge fan of Shakira....my fans know that," she explains. "This song was originally called 'Lips' and then I think the writers were like, 'Oh let's call it "Lips Don't Lie," because that's the main tag of the song, and it just so happens to mirror 'Hips Don't Lie.'"

After her time in Fifth Harmony, Ally says her newfound solo career is a dream come true.

"I really feel like everything led up to this moment in my life, and I feel like I'm thriving and found my confidence...after so long," she gushes. "I found who Ally is and I'm out there representing myself and thank God people are liking it and listening."

Over the years, Madonna has been outspoken politically, but she's never actually gotten involved in politics.  But incredibly, she now admits that she actually considered running for president, but then dismissed the idea because she thinks it's a horrible job, and because she has OCD.

Speaking to interviewer Dan Wootton for the U.K. tabloid The Sun and his podcast, Madonna says of the idea of running for president, "The thought went through my mind in a second and then went out. I can’t imagine a worse job -- I mean, everyone just hates you as soon as you step into the White House."

Asked if she thinks she'd do a better job than our current president, Madonna replied, "I think so, yeah. But, I mean, gosh, look at Barack Obama, it’s a job that ages you."

She added, “Can you imagine if I was president? And I have OCD. I’d be trying to figure out every problem every night."

If she were president, though, Madonna claims her first act would be to make guns illegal -- a topic she addresses on the song "God Control" on her new album, Madame X.

Andrew MacPhersonPink released a surprise gift for fans Tuesday: a video for her emotional duet with Wrabel, “90 Days.”

The clip, Pink explains, was shot “just for fun” with husband Carey Hart and directed by one of her dancers.

“I ran around the streets of Portland and Detroit while we were on tour and we shot a video for one of my favorite songs from Hurts 2B Human, ‘90 Days,’” the singer says on Instagram.

The video begins with Carey watching a YouTube clip of Pink on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, while she stares at him from across the table. We then see happy shots of her and Carey dancing in the kitchen and driving around together, intercut with scenes of Pink wrestling with her feelings while sitting in a bathtub fully clothed.

In the song, she sings about an underlying fear that the person she loves will leave her.

“If I'm just somebody that you're gonna leave/And you don't feel something when you look at me/You're holdin' my heart, mmm, whatcha say?/Just let me down slowly, I'll be okay,” she sings.

Tonight, Pink plays the RDS Arena in Dublin, Ireland on her Beautiful Trauma tour.

TAS Rights ManagementWe know Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been on good terms for a while now, but they went public in Taylor’s new video for “You Need to Calm Down,” embracing lovingly while dressed as a burger and fries.

In a new interview with BBC Radio 1 Taylor explains that she initially pitched the video idea to Katy via text and wasn’t sure if she’d be down to do it -- but Katy was on board.

"I sent it to her and she was like, ‘I would love for us to be a symbol of redemption and forgiveness,’" Taylor says.

She adds that the idea for the burger and fries costumes wasn’t part of her initial treatment, but she was inspired by Katy’s burger outfit at the MET Gala after-party this year.

“I was like, ‘Can we do a burger and fries as, like, a metaphor for two people who belong together?’ Like people who are a perfect pair,” Taylor says. “And she thought it was really funny, so we did it.”

As Taylor previously stated, the two former rivals buried the hatchet after Katy sent a note and an actual olive branch to Taylor before her Reputation tour. When they ran into each other again, Taylor says, they realized they had “grown past allowing ourselves to be pitted against each other."

In other Taylor news, she's thrilled that Cher has retweeted the scene from the video that shows a framed slogan reading, "I am a rich man."  That's what Cher claims she told her mom, after her mom suggested she "marry a rich man."

Taylor wrote, "When you have a song about being calm and the video has a Cher quote in it and she posts it so henceforth you are not able to be calm anymore."

Dave J Hogan/Getty ImagesVictoria “Posh Spice” Beckham decided not to join the Spice Girls on stage for their U.K. reunion shows -- but she didn’t come out to see the group perform, either.

In an interview with Good Morning Britain, Mel B, aka Scary Spice, says she was disappointed Victoria didn’t attend any of the shows in support of her group mates.

"I expected her to come and just say hi at least. Not even on stage, just as an audience member supporting," she says. "I'm sure she has her reasons for not. I've already said, 'Yeah, I was upset,' I still am a little bit. It is what it is and us girls, we all support each other no matter what."

She clarified that there is no rift between them. "We're all adults, we all have to respectfully get on with whatever,” she says. “But it is a bit disappointing, let's put it that way."

When asked if superfan Adele could join the group as the next Posh, Mel B said, "Adele is Adele and there's only one Posh, come on!"

According to Victoria’s Instagram, she and husband David were away at a wedding in Spain on Saturday – the day of the Spice Girls’ final show in London. Ahead of the first show in Dublin, Ireland last month, Victoria had written on Instagram, “Good luck to the girls today as they start their tour!”

Columbia Records"Old Town Road" just keeps on going: The song by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for an 11th week.

The last time a song spent that long on top was last February, when Drake's "God's Plan" started an 11-week run that lasted through April. "Old Town Road" is only the 25th song in the history of the Hot 100 to spend 11 weeks or more at #1.

"Old Town Road" is also on its third week at #1 on Billboard's Songs of the Summer. 

Lil Nas' X's debut EP, 7, is due out on Friday.

Speaking of Drake, his new collaboration with Chris Brown, "No Guidance," debuts at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100. That gives Drake's 24th top 10 hit, which ties him with The Beatles. The only artist who's had more is Madonna, with 38.

Shervin LainezSHAED's single "Trampoline" topped Billboard's Alternative Songs chart, and now it's climbing Billboard's Adult Pop Songs chart. Speaking to ABC Radio, the trio -- vocalist Chelsea Lee and multi-instrumentalist brothers Max and Spencer Ernst -- reveals that the inspiration for the song was an actual, real-life trampoline.

"We were watching home videos one day, and there was actually a video of my brother and I -- we're twin brothers -- we were two years old, we were just jumping on a trampoline," Max explains.

"The video had become distorted over time, so it was like this really trippy kind of scene of Spence and I jumping on this trampoline," he continues. "And that...got the wheels turning for the song."

The rest of the "Trampoline" lyrics, Chelsea recalls, were inspired by the scene outside the Washington, D.C. home all three band members share.

"We have a studio in our house, and it's the biggest room in the house, and it has a great big window -- we have a really nice front yard," Chelsea explains. "So we were trying to think about lyrics, and we were looking outside and soaking in the nature that we had outside the window: the trees, the leaves were falling."

"I think we kind of pulled from that," she adds.

While listening to "Trampoline" is a dreamy experience, SHAED found out the hard way that jumping on trampolines as adults isn't as enjoyable.

"For the music video, we brought in a full-sized trampoline into the studio, and Max and I were doing flips on the trampoline," Spencer says. "I hadn't done a flip on a trampoline in, like, 10 years or something, and I definitely tweaked my back a little bit."

"Trampoline" appears on SHAED's 2018 EP MELT.

TAS Rights ManagementTaylor Swift and Katy Perry were once rivals, but now they go together like burgers and fries.

Taylor’s music video for “You Need to Calm Down” features Katy in a hamburger costume and Taylor dressed like an order of French fries embracing lovingly.  Now Taylor reveals that the two former frenemies buried the hatchet quite some time ago.

“She sent me a really nice note and an olive branch — like an actual olive branch — to my tour when it started, the Reputation Stadium Tour, a while ago,” Taylor tells U.K.’s Capital Breakfast radio show. “From that point on, we’ve been on good terms.”

Taylor says the two eventually ran into each other at a party and hugged it out in person, and then hung out at another party after that.

“It was just, like, something felt so much lighter about my life when things became really good between us,” she says.

But before they went public with their reconciliation, Taylor says they wanted to make sure things were “solid” between them - and now it seems things are.

On Monday, Katy shared photos from the music video set, captioning it, “This meal is BEEF-free.” Taylor also posted a pic of the two in their burger and fries costumes, writing, “A happy meal.”

Courtesy Kraft Heinz First, Ed Sheeran reached out to Heinz online to tell them he had a great idea for a Heinz Ketchup commercial.  Then, he and Heinz teamed up to release his very own "Edchup," which quickly sold out.  Now, Ed's idea, which started the whole thing, has finally become a reality.

The ad starts with the words, "Based on a real DM from Ed Sheeran."  Ed narrates the commercial, which shows him going to a "super-posh" restaurant, where he sits down and the waiter offers him lots of fancy-schmancy food.

When the food arrives, Ed describes how the waiter starts extolling the restaurant's "farm-to-table blah blah blah, posh and fancy blah blah blah, with a side of blah blah blah."

"Y'know, the food looked good," Ed continues. "I just thought there was something missing. So I reach into my bag and I take out the only thing that can complete me. And at that point, the whole world came to a stop."

We see Ed pulling out a bottle of Heinz, as everyone in the restaurant, including the waiter, freezes and looks on with horror as he proceeds to douse the fancy-schmancy food with ketchup.

"The waiter was screaming through his eyes, 'Nooooo!'"  Ed concludes. "So that's my idea. Wanna do it?"

In the comments section, it says, "Heinz Tomato Ketchup superfan Ed Sheeran, came to us with a great idea for a Heinz Advert based on his own experience. We were thrilled to make it happen. From one super fan to another. It has to be Ed Sheeran and Heinz."

Republic RecordsHappiness continues for the Jonas Brothers: Their reunion album, Happiness Begins, debuts at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

The album – the band’s first new release since 2009 – becomes the biggest debut of 2019 with a total of 414,000 units sold. It surpasses Ariana Grande’s thank u, next, which debuted at number one with 360,000 units in February.

Happiness Begins also has the largest week in traditional album sales since Taylor Swift’s Reputation, which sold 1.22 million albums in 2017. Of the total units sold, the JoBros generated 357,000 in traditional album sales.  Those sales were boosted by a deal which offered a ticket to the group's upcoming arena tour to anyone who purchased the album.

The album is also the biggest streaming album of the week, with about 68 million audio streams for its songs, including the hits “Sucker” and “Cool.”

"Honestly blown away by the official first week numbers of #HappinesBegins thank you to every single one of you for making this chapter of our journey so incredible. It’s all because of you. We love you," Nick Jonas tweeted Monday.

The Jonas Brothers kick off their Happiness Begins Tour in Miami on August 7.

Valheria RochaTaylor Swift's new album isn't out until August, but it's already setting records.

According to Apple Music, Lover is the most pre-added album by a female artist on its first day ever on the streaming platform. It scored nearly 179,000 pre-adds worldwide, breaking a previous record set by Ariana Grande's most recent album, thank u, next

Lover has also set the record for the most pre-added pop album on its first day worldwide.

Lover officially opened for pre-adds on June 13.  Since then, it's scored a total of just over 222,000 pre-adds worldwide.  It's due out August 23.

Meanwhile, E! Online has pointed out that, among the many blink-and-you'll miss it moments in Taylor's new video for "You Need to Calm Down" is a shot that comes about a minute and 26 seconds into the clip.  You can see protesters marching in a circle next to a trailer that has the word "Hillcrest" written on it. 

E! notes that the San Diego Pride Parade will be taking place July 13 and it will start at a place called "Hillcrest Pride Flag."  Since "13" is Taylor's favorite number, could she be teasing an appearance at the event?

Another item of note in the video: The framed picture you see in the clip that says "Mom, I am a rich man" is a reference to a Cher interview from 1996, where she remembered that her mom once told her, "One day you should settle down and marry a rich man." To which Cher replied, "Mom, I am a rich man."

Does this mean Cher is a guest on the album?  Hey, when it comes to Taylor, nothing's out of the question.

Getty Images North America via ABC/John Shearer/AMA2018Ever since Camila Cabello tweeted a brief clip last week of herself singing what appeared to be a new song, fans have been clamoring for more information.  Camila hopped on Twitter on Monday to give them some answers to their questions...but unfortunately nothing as definite as a title and release date.

"If you could describe the new album as food, what would it be and why?" one fan asked.  "probably like HOT SAUCE with Nutella," Camila replied.

"And what if it was something to drink?" another fan asked.

"I’d say like a MARGARITA with some hot sauce and Nutella in it," Camila replied

All this talk of food led one fan to comment, "Mom we are HUNGRY," to which she replied, "dinner coming SOONER THAN YOU THINK GOODBYE."

But on a more serious note, when a fan asked, "is there a theme for this album or any concepts we should look out for that are important??" Camila said, "Ugh. Yes. Can't tell you tho."

Finally, when a fan asked if she considers this album to be more important than her debut, she said, "Different stages of my life, but yeah- I feel like this one feels like I’ve captured my essence more."

Stay tuned.

John Shearer/Getty Images via ABCLorde has confirmed that she's working on her next album.

In a since-expired Instagram Story, captured by the @LordeDaily fan account, the New Zealand singer-songwriter reveals that her third record, the follow-up to 2017's Melodrama, is "in the oven."

Lorde made the announcement on the two-year anniversary of the Grammy-nominated album Melodrama, which spawned the lead single "Green Light." In the post, she thanked fans for their support of the album.

"Want to say thank you for how you took that record and made it your own," she wrote. "Swells my damn heart thinking about your love for it and your willingness to go there with me and to dance the way we did together."

Last November, Lorde  said she hadn't yet "started properly" on the new album, but had "little bits" of ideas forming. She added that she'd be "keeping it simple" with the the material, which would likely be more piano-based.
