Ariana Grande's 'Red Alert': New Album Clues and a Management Shake-Up

Ariana Grande is kind of like a ninja – silent but deadly when it comes to dropping album hints. Recently, she’s gone full-on Santa mode, gifting her fans a package that screams ‘new music is coming.’ The package is an Ariana-Grande-branded fortune cookie, telling fans to brace themselves for some tunes next year, complete with her signature on a lipstick shade that screams “this is my jam.” Plus, she’s now hanging out with a new management crew, where apparently, artistic integrity is the main dish served. As our ears eagerly await the sweet sound of new tracks, Grande has slipped into the role of a musical merry-go-lady, keeping us guessing with every Instagram post and red-lipped clue.

Olivia Rodrigo Spills Poetic Secrets Behind 'Guts' on The Kelly Clarkson Show

Olivia Rodrigo, the voice that’s been echoing from every speaker with a Gen Z in the vicinity, dove into lyric deep-dive mode on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The 20-year-old dished out the emo-infused inspirations behind her “Guts” album tracks, “Lacy” and “All-American Bitch.” Drawing from a USC poetry class assignment, Rodrigo turned her poignant verses into a tune that’s got the fandom crafting theories worthy of a detective badge. And if you ever played “light as a feather, stiff as a board” at a sleepover, Rodrigo’s got a lyric twist that’s now a pop punk anthem for defying ridiculous feminine ideals. She’s stringing words like a lyrical wizard, and who knows, maybe your high school English teacher was on to something about poetry being cool.

Magic Face Off

Help us choose between these two new Christmas tunes. Vote and hear the full songs below.

Miley Cyrus Dominates Spotify's 2023 Playlists, Earning Top Dollar with 'Flowers'

Miley Cyrus knocks it out of the park with her hit single ‘Flowers,’ snagging the title for the top-earning song on Spotify for 2023. From her eighth studio album ‘Endless Summer Vacation,’ this chart-topper didn’t just bloom – it exploded, reaching a staggering 1.6 billion streams faster than any other song in Spotify history.

SZA’s ‘Kill Bill’ and Harry Styles’s ‘As It Was’ also raked in the royalties, proving they’re not just in vogue, they’re in the money. Meanwhile “Weird Al” Yankovic’s got a bone to pick with Spotify’s payout, joking he made enough for a “nice sandwich”!

Swift Denial: Taylor Swift's Publicist Squashes Secret Marriage Rumors with Defiant Tune!

Swift’s publicist, Tree Paine, is setting the record straight on some viral whispers. She’s singing a clear “No!” to rumors set ablaze by DeuxMoi regarding a secret, legally void marriage between Taylor Swift and ex-boyfriend Joe Alwyn. So, essentially no marriage. With DeuxMoi clutching tight to the storyline, it’s like a pop culture tug-of-war! Meanwhile, Swift is keeping it lyrical, leaving fans deciphering timelines within her tunes. It’s always interesting to see how many variations of the same untrue story can make the viral rounds. How about a new rumor that Swift is secretly a time-traveling private investigator? It’s equally valid.
