NBCIt seems Kelly Clarkson may have changed her mind about wanting more kids.
During an interview with chef Gordon Ramsay on The Kelly Clarkson Show Thursday, she admitted she was getting baby fever after seeing Gordon’s adorable one-year-old son, Oscar.
"Oh my gosh! Do not do this to me,” she said as Gordon brought his baby onto the Zoom call. “I so want another child, and my husband is like, 'No! We have four!'”
She added, "You get baby fever when you see them and you're like, 'Oh, I miss the chubby little legs and the little face.’”
Kelly and husband Brandon Blackstock are parents to almost-six-year-old River Rose and four-year-old Remy. Kelly is also stepmom to Brandon’s two other children, 13-year-old Seth and 18-year-old Savannah.
Back in 2016, Kelly was singing a very different tune about ever getting pregnant again. She revealed on Jenny McCarthy’s radio show about motherhood, Inner Circle, that she'd her tubes tied and had asked her husband to get a vasectomy.
“If something happens, it’s a miracle of God,” she joked.
ABC/Image Group LACamila Cabello is giving an unfiltered glimpse into her struggles with OCD.
In an essay for the Wall Street Journalfor Mental Health Awareness Month, the singer admits that the carefree pictures she posts on social media don’t always tell the real story of what her life is like.
"Here’s what there aren’t pictures of from the last year: me crying in the car talking to my mom about how much anxiety and how many symptoms of OCD I was experiencing," Camila writes. "My mom and me in a hotel room reading books about OCD because I was desperate for relief. Me experiencing what felt like constant, unwavering, relentless anxiety that made day-to-day life painfully hard."
Camila says her OCD made her "feel like my mind was playing a cruel trick on me” and even manifested in physical symptoms, like difficulty sleeping, constant headaches and a persistent knot in her throat.
She admits at first she was ashamed to tell anyone for fear they might see her as “weak.” But she eventually realized that "denying my suffering and berating myself didn’t help things” and she needed to talk about it in order to fully deal with it.
Camila sought help with cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation, breathing exercises and other techniques and writes that she now feels the "healthiest and most connected to myself I’ve ever been."
Interscope RecordsWith just one day to go before her album Chromatica arrives, Lady Gaga is giving us a taste of one more track.
The singer released the song “Sour Candy” today, featuring K-pop girl group BLACKPINK.
The electronic pop track begins with BLACKPINK singing in both English and Korean about how they’re like “sour candy, so sweet then I get a little angry,” before Gaga comes in on the chorus.
“I’m hard on the outside/But if you give me time/Then I could make time for your love,” she sings.
Last Friday, Gaga dropped the banger “Rain On Me,” featuring Ariana Grande. That song set a Spotify record for the most single-day streams from an all-female collaboration. The video has surpassed over 53 million views.
ABC/Gavin BondLike many others, Katy Perry was looking forward to the Space X launch on Wednesday, but it ultimately got scrubbed due to weather.
Nonetheless, the 35-year-old singer, who is expecting her first child with Orlando Bloom, was able to put the delaying of the history-making moment into perspective. Alongside a photo of herself rocking a silver metallic dress and sparkling shoes, she wrote, "Welp. Today’s #SpaceLaunchLive was BUMPED due to weather, but what’s two days when @spacex has been waiting for 18 years."
She added, "Let’s pray it’s in the cards for Saturday! Set your alarm for the 3:22pm EDT launch, and don’t miss the pregame with me on @Discoveryand @ScienceChannel for a historical moment in space travel."
Welp. Today’s #SpaceLaunchLive was BUMPED due to weather, but what’s two days when spacex has been waiting for 18 years... Let’s pray it’s in the cards for Saturday! Set your alarm for the 3:22pm EDT launch, and… https://t.co/K311tyNpKE
Kevin Winter/Getty ImagesBeing separated from a loved one for an extended period of time is extremely difficult and challenging. When the COVID-19 pandemic first swept across the U.S., Britney Spears was forced to quarantine separately from her boyfriend Sam Asghari.
Asghari caught up with E! Newson how the two kept in touch while waiting out the pandemic in different states, which he said felt like "a lifetime."
"When we were not together, it was just like when I was on a project or away from her," the fitness trainer explained, saying Britney was visiting family in Louisiana when stay-at-home measures were instated. However, just because they couldn't physically touch one another, they still found ways to feel connected.
"I trained with her for workouts via FaceTime," Asghari said of their unconventional dates. "It went great."
While apart, the "Toxic" singer revealed on Instagram that she missed her boyfriend so much, that she was losing weight.
Now that the two have reunited, the couple are spending "every day together" while keeping up with their fitness regime.
Asghari detailed, "We play a lot of tennis... She's very competitive when it comes to tennis." The fitness trainer marveled that, "I think she's trained before to be a professional tennis player. That's how good she is. Oh man, she's a natural athlete."
The two also turn to working out when they start feeling antsy due to the pandemic, saying "We usually go on a bike ride, something to help reduce anxiety and stress" because the "solid movement" helps calm them down.
When not working out, the 26-year-old makes Britney a home cooked breakfast, try to outsmart each other at card games, cuddle up when watching movies and splash around in the pool. "That's what we love doing," he asserted.
Katy, who also invested in the company that makes the Impossible Burger, tells Fast Company she decided to invest after she met the CEO of Apeel, James Rogers, and toured their offices and labs.
"I...was just so blown away I thought it was witchcraft—in the best of ways,” she explains. "This is one of the definitions of sustainability...It gives farmers a chance. It gives us more options as a consumer. It takes produce shipping off of planes and back onto shipping containers, so it lowers our CO2 emissions.”
Apeel's website notes, "Produce with Apeel stays fresh two to three times longer, which promotes more sustainable growing practices, better quality food, and less food waste for everyone."
In fact, a March 2020 study found that one-third of the world's food never gets eaten, which means all the resources that went into growing it were wasted.
So, does Katy plan to use her fame or her social media following to spread the gospel about Apeel? Not necessary, she says.
"They just are the magic,” she says, “and when something is such a solution, you don’t have to push it on people.”
Lady Gaga has apparently taken up long-haul trucking in her spare time.
Gaga posted a photo of herself behind the wheel of a huge truck wrapped with the artwork for her new album, Chromatica. She's sporting a stylish pink, spike-studded Chromatica-logo face mask and pink hair.
In the caption, Gaga explains, "Delivering #Chromatica myself to every retailer around the world… in Chromatica time and distance do not exist."
The long-awaited album, featuring the singles "Rain on Me" and "Stupid Love," as well as collaborations with Elton John and K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, arrives on Friday, so Gaga had better drive fast.

John Shearer/Getty Images for The Recording AcademyDemi Lovato is teaming up with The Trevor Project for a new campaign ahead of Pride Month this June.
In a video for the “Pride Everywhere” campaign, the singer narrates an inspiring message for the LGBTQ community. The message assures that just because celebrations won’t be the same this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pride can never be cancelled.
"When you see this parade, what do you see," she asks, as we see footage of people joyously participating in a Pride celebration. "You see people from all walks of life, owning their power unapologetically, using it for those who need it."
"You see resilience in a thousand forms. The strength to stand up, despite so many reasons to sit down," Demi continues. "You see imagination at every turn, a brilliance shared by creative minds, writing stories, solving problems and painting pictures that will become our history."
Demi concludes, “This is not a parade. This is Pride. And Pride isn’t going anywhere. Because Pride is everywhere.”
Protest following death of George Floyd; KEREM YUCEL/AFP via Getty ImagesArtists are taking to social media to express their anger, sadness and horror at the death of George Floyd, who died Monday night shortly after being apprehended by Minneapolis police.
Video that emerged of the incident shows a white police officer with his knee on the neck of a black man -- identified as Floyd -- who repeatedly yells, "I can't breathe." All four responding officers were subsequently fired. The FBI is now investigating Floyd's death.
Madonna posted the video of the incident on Instagram and wrote, "Watching this Cop suffocate George Floyd with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing i've seen in a long time. This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!!"
Madonna added, "God Bless you George Floyd I'm so sorry for you and your family. And all the senseless killings that have gone before you. Will it ever end? I pray to GOD it does one day. Until then -- F**k The Police! Yea I said it. Im not interested in being PC. Im interested in Justice."
Justin Bieber also posted the video, and wrote, "THIS MUST STOP. this makes me absolutely sick. This makes me angry this man DIED. This makes me sad. Racism is evil We need to use our voice! Please people. I’m sorry GEORGE FLOYD."
On her Instagram Story, Ariana Grande posted, "justice is not just about specific officers being arrested. It's about dismantling the systems that make it possible." She added the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd.
On her own Instagram Story, Billie Eilish posted a photo of Floyd and wrote, "George Floyd Being Black in America should not be a death sentence. Black lives matter. The MPD officers responsible have been terminated and I hope to god they rot in jail."
Demi Lovato posted three images: a cartoon image of Floyd, the words "Black Lives Matter," and the sentence, "I'm tired of typing 'rest in peace.' I wish black men could live in peace." She captioned them, "This is not okay. And it will not stop until everyone does their part. Especially white people."
Demi continued, "I said it recently and I’ll say it again, do not let your discomfort surrounding social issues prevent you from speaking up for those IN DANGER. And reality is, until this STOPS COMPLETELY - THE BLACK COMMUNITY WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE IN DANGER. DO YOUR PART. THIS INVOLVES YOU TOO. #GeorgeFloyd, I hope you RIP because it isn’t fair so many didn’t do their part to ensure you lived in peace."
Cardi B posted a picture of Floyd on Instagram and wrote in the caption, "Enough is enough! What will it take ? A civil war? A new president? Violent riots ? It’s tired ! I’m tired ! The country is tired !You don’t put fear in people when you do this you just show how coward YOU ARE ! And how America is really not the land of the free!"
ABC/Eric McCandlessBillie Eilish has shared a new short film, titled Not My Responsibility.
The clip finds the "bad guy" singer delivering a spoken word performance on the dangers of body shaming as she herself removes layers of her clothing, all while sinking into a dark liquid.
"We make assumptions about people based on their size," Eilish says. "We decide who they are. We decide what they're worth. If I wear more, if I wear less, who decides what that makes me? What that means? Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?"
The film originally premiered during Eilish's North American tour earlier this year, which got cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can watch it now streaming on YouTube.
ABC/Image Group LADespite warnings from hair stylists and celebrities alike cautioning against at-home dye jobs or haircuts while in quarantine, Dua Lipa has consistently ignored the warnings and is showing off yet another radical new fruit-themed hair color.
On Tuesday, the "Don't Start Now" singer debuted her cherry red locks and messy bangs. She also included five cherry emojis in the caption, proving that she is only selecting fruit-themed colors.
The 24-year-old has been having fun keeping herself entertained while quarantining with boyfriend Anwar Hadid by experimenting with her hair. The two have been waiting out the COVID-19 pandemic in their London Airbnb.
As for what started her fruity obsession, it happened a month ago when the "New Rules" singer went full tangerine orange, complete with the caption "orangina quarantina." She also showed off her freshly cut blunt bangs while giving her her boyfriend a playful peck on the cheek.
Anyone want to bet on what color she'll dye her hair next?
Interscope RecordsAfter a string of single releases, Ellie Goulding has finally announced details of her long-awaited fourth album, her first since 2015. Brightest Blue will arrive July 17 -- with two sides.
Side A of the project is called Brightest Blue, while Side B is called "EG.0." Elle says that the first half of the album "reflects my vulnerability," adding, "It acknowledges a complex world where relationships still dictate our happiness and heartbreak and can still be the most painful thing in the world, no matter how enlightened you are. The tracks also symbolize growing up and becoming a woman.”
Ellie's recent single "Power" is an example of that theme. It'll appear on Side A.
As for Side B, Ellie says it "encapsulates my confident, brave and fearless side and features all my recent collaborations."
She notes, "I often find myself writing about my thoughts and emotions in a way that I know will be catchy and memorable. I will always seek to use my voice in ways that no one would ever expect and look to collaborate with the least likely, exciting and eclectic group of other artists.”
Those collaborations include "Close to Me," with Diplo and Swae Lee, "Hate Me" with Juice WRLD, and "Worry About Me," with blackbear. There's also a song called "Slow Grenade" that she did with Lauv.
Brightest Blue will be available on CD, digital and double vinyl. An exclusive Target CD version will include a special album cover and fold-out poster. A limited edition box set and cassette are available via EllieGoulding.com.
Ellie will appear on Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series on ABC in the coming weeks.

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicHailey Bieber did not have plastic surgery and she's willing to put her money where her mouth is to stop others from saying she has.
According to legal documents obtained by E! News, attorneys have fired off a cease and desist letter to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Barrett accusing him of using the 23-year-old model's "name, image and likeness" to "commercially advertise your plastic surgery practice and to spread false, uncorroborated claims that Mrs. Bieber has undergone plastic surgery."
Barrett, who is active on TikTok, often shares videos that analyze a celebrity's appearance based on two photos taken years apart from each other and makes an educated guess at the cosmetic procedures they may have had done. On May 23, he featured Hailey in a video and claimed that she's had a skin tightening procedure, jawline contouring, chin augmentation, as well as filler in her cheeks and lips.
In addition, her husband Justin Bieber accused the doctor of using "copyrighted protected lyrics" from his song "Sorry."
The power couple is seeking a public statement from Barrett renounce the claims he made and remove any and all posts containing non-approved references to them but it doesn't seem like they will get what they want so easily.
In a statement to E!, Barrett explained that the purpose of his TikTok account is to educate viewers and "increase the transparency of plastic surgery."
"The purpose of the video was not to disparage Hailey Bieber in any way, the purpose of my video was to share my opinion about the procedures that I believed she may have had done based on photos alone. This is at the request of many of my viewers who follow me for this type of information and for my opinion."
Presley Ann/Getty Images for Haus Laboratories, Neilson Barnard/Getty ImagesLady Gaga and Ariana Grande shared a hilarious video on Tuesday to promote their new single “Rain on Me,” with a little help from Ariana's new rumored boyfriend Dalton Gomez.
The clip, posted to both Ariana and Gaga’s Instagram accounts, shows the singers as weather girls reporting in the middle of a rainstorm.
"It was beautiful just yesterday but oh wow, how things have changed," Gaga begins. "Today it is pouring rain, we are soaking wet. While some are complaining of the recent downpour, we would like to celebrate the rain. Live from Beverly Hills is Ariana Grande with more to report."
"Thanks, Gaga. Rain on me, tsunami," says Ariana. "The people are still going."
"So true, Ariana,” Gaga replies. “The people are rising up in a massive act of kindness to celebrate the rain the world so desperately needs to quench the thirst of the Earth. Are we thirsty or what?"
"Oh, we are thirsty indeed!" Ariana answers back, as the camera pans back to show Gomez providing the rain with a hose.
The shot switches to a woman in a face mask showering Gaga
TMZ reported back in March that Ariana and Dalton, high-end real estate agent, had been dating for "several months."
Imogen WilsonNew Zealand singer/songwriter Benee a big star in her home country but now she's got a big hit on her hands in the U.S., "Supalonely." The track has been the soundtrack for some 12 million TikToks and counting, and Benee thinks it's because, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the song is instantly relatable.
"I think the thing with TikTok...the reason why people grab onto the songs that they do is because they're relatable, and and people can kind of...make little stories to it," she explains. "Even if they're doing the dance, they're doing, like, little actions that kind of tell a little story, which is cute."
"But yeah, I feel like now is a time when everyone is in isolation and everyone is kind of feeling quite lonely," she adds. "And I think that that's why they're relating to my lyrics, which is cool."
While a large part of the TikToks featuring "Supalonely" are people doing a specific dance to the track, Benee says the one she likes the best doesn't involve dancing at all.
"I do have a favorite one...I love the dance ones, but this one is like, this girl with her hamster on her vanity," she explains. "And it, like, crawls on her leg and then comes onto her hand. It's real cute. We don't have hamsters in New Zealand so I find them really cute!"
"Supalonely" appears on Benee's current EP, Stella & Steve. Benee's birth name is Stella Rose Bennett, and she's nicknamed her car "Steve."

Jen RosensteinJason Mraz has already released a video for his latest single, "Look for the Good," in which he appeared solo. Now, he's reuniting -- virtually -- with his band for a new video for the song, which is the title track of his new album.
"Hey, what's up? I hope this message finds you well, good health and in good company," Jason says in the video.

Then, addressing the viewer, Jason adds, "And that includes you, my friend. Thank y'all so much and keep lookin' for the good."

L-R: Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, Miley Cyrus; Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic Demi Lovato has spoken out again about the experiences she and other young pop stars like Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers shared while starring in Disney Channel TV shows.
Over the weekend, Demi called into the podcast In Bed with Nick and Megan, hosted by married actors Megan Mullaney and Nick Offerman. The connection? Demi appeared in a multi-episode arc of Will & Grace, the show on which Mullaney starred as Karen Walker.
During the chat, Mullalley urged Demi to tell Offerman what it was like growing up on TV with all the other young pop stars. After correcting Mullalley, who mistakenly believed that Justin Bieber was also a Disney Channel star, Demi said, "It was this really small group of kids that we really couldn't relate to a lot of people, so we kind of stuck together."
"We called it ‘Disney High,’ because, y'know, when there's only a select few of you that can relate to one another, you kinda start dating each other, and then you become friends with one another, and then you fall out with one another and then you break up with one another," Demi continued.
"Then other people date each other...it's just confusing and dramatic," she noted. "And that's 'Disney High' for you!"
In her recent May Harper's Baazar cover story, Demi also talked about Miley, Selena and JoBros, admitting that Miley is "kind of the only one from that era that I still stay in touch with."
The "I'm Ready" singer also reunited via Zoom last month with the co-stars of her Disney series Sonny with a Chance.
