You know your fans are excited when they come up with a cute nickname before there’s even anything to slap it on. That was the case over the weekend when Grande and Lovato fans got super-excited about a possible Dariana collab between Ariana and Demi. Ari posted some vocals on her Insta Story on Sunday with the caption backgrounds on a song for a friend. Then Lovato reposted it and added a few sneaky-eye emojis. Obviously it gots fans exciting and talking. Back in January we learned Lovato was in the studio, working on new material. Sounds like she turned to friend Ari for some help on a track and we can’t wait!
She don’t need no man! Kelly Clarkson is Miss Independent and channeling her heartbreak into what she does best. Clarkson revealed she’s been writing new music amid her divorce. And when we say a little writing, we actually mean a lot. She said she has written around 60 songs. Whether we get to hear any of those, if she’s willing to share that personal material, only time will tell. But we can certainly say music has a way of healing.

Eminem is pushing back against those who want him canceled. On Friday he fired back at his critics with an animated lyric video for the song Tone Deaf in which he doubles down on his controversial persona over the decades. In recent weeks, a campaign on TikTok has called for the cancellation of the Grammy and Oscar winning rapper over his 2010 hit Love the Way you Lie with Rihanna, arguing the song glorifies domestic abuse. Eminem did apologize for the song earlier last year. Apparently some folks didn’t think it was enough and now he’s not apologizing anymore.
