Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography… Gwen Stefani released a new single… Are Nick Jonas and Kate Hudson back together?… Justin Bieber quits cold turkey… and Kanye West calls out Taylor Swift in new lyrics
Bruce Springsteen reportedly got a $10 million advance to write his autobiography, and we’ll finally get to read it on September 27th. Guess what he’s calling it? Born to Run. Duh. Believe it or not, he’s been working on this thing since 2009. It’s not his first book, though. A couple years ago, Bruce published a children’s book called Outlaw Pete.
Gwen Stefani has released her next single off her upcoming album. It’s called “Make Me Like You” and — like “Used To Love You” was obviously about Gavin Rossdale — this one is obviously about Blake Shelton. Here are a couple of the lyrics: “Why’d you have to go and make me like you? I’m so mad at you ’cause now you got me missing you.” And Blake even tweeted, “You can probably understand the multiple reasons why I just bought this…I hope you do to!!! @gwenstefani.” By the way, the video for “Make Me Like You” will be filmed and broadcast live during a four-minute commercial break during the Grammys Monday night.
I guess Lilly Collins didn’t rock his world the way Kate Hudson can. Nick Jonas enjoyed a romantic dinner with Kate Wednesday night. They reportedly were seated at a corner table on the outdoor patio of Pace for four hours, leaving the restaurant just after midnight together in a limo SUV. A source told “People” that their age gap is a bit of a concern. She’s 36 and he’s 23. But, “There’s definitely an attraction there, and they’re just trying to figure out how to make sense of the situation.”
In case you haven’t picked up “GQ” yet, Justin Bieber reveals he’d been relying on Adderall to help him concentrate on his everyday tasks. But he said it was messing with his sleep and he developed anxiety, so he made the decision to quit cold turkey. If it wasn’t for the anxiety, though, he said, “I wouldn’t stop, because I really enjoy it.”
Despite what Kanye West was tweeting like a maniac this morning, Taylor Swift’s rep told “People” magazine that Kanye did NOT call Taylor to ask for her approval on the lyrics in his new song “Famous.” He DID ask her to release the single on her Twitter account. She not only declined, the rep says Taylor “cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.” She adds that Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, “I made that b**** famous.” Taylor’s close friends were in the crowd at Madison Square Garden when they heard the lyrics for the first time. Gigi Hadid tweeted, “My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty.” And Jaime King tweeted, “I’m so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always.” Taylor’s brother Austin posted a video on Instagram showing him throwing away his Yeezys. He captioned it, “Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.” Selena Gomez liked it. But this morning on Twitter, Kanye insists that he not only got permission from Taylor, the lyric was her idea in the first place!
