Halsey has no time for your small-mindedness and homophobia. The singer snapped back at a Twitter user over the weekend after the person posted a rude reaction to the news that Miley Cyrus has split from her husband Liam Hemsworth and had been spotted on vacation with Brody Jenner’s ex-wife Kaitlynn Carter on the day before the announcement. Halsey wasn’t having any of it and replied to the user, stop being afraid of women who aren’t afraid to do what pleases them and not other people.

Ed Sheeran’s love affair with Heinz Ketchup is, literally, skin deep. The singer has the condiment brand’s logo inked on his bicep and now he’s taking his love even further to benefit charity. After teaming up earlier this year for a limited edition bottle of Edchup, Sheeran and Heinz have done it again with another bottle, this one featuring a variety of Ed’s tattoos. The majority of the signed bottles, 104 of them, will be given away in an online sweepstakes. The effort will raise money for the charities Rise Against Hunger and children’s hospitals.
Khalid’s The Great Khalid Foundation, along with Right Hand Foundation are teaming up for a special benefit concert happening September 1 in honor of those lost in the El Paso, Texas shooting earlier this month.

I want to give back to my community who has given so much to me. Please come out and let’s heal together through music while raising money to help those who need it. Tickets are on sale now.
Just days after announcing her split, Miley Cyrus was back on her grind. Cyrus posted a picture from the studio Monday morning in which she is standing in front of a microphone. The image didn’t have a caption, but a source close to the singer says Miley is focused on finishing her album. In May, Cyrus announced that her upcoming 7th album will be called She is Miley Cyrus, made up of three six-song EPs, the first of which dropped May 31.

5 Seconds of Summer had a special delivery Tuesday morning for those who think Easier sounds like Charlie Puth: a remix from the singer himself. The group recruited Puth for a remix of their summer hit, which now features a new first verse. Charlie put some more of his style on the tack and this remix definitely sounds like a Puth song now.
