Ariana Grande Shows Off New Bee Tattoo To Honor Manchester

Ariana Grande has gotten a permanent tribute to the victims of the Manchester bombing inked on her body. The 24-year-old singer took to Instagram on Thursday to post a picture of her new tattoo. It features a bee, a symbol of Manchester, behind her left ear and just above her moon tattoo. "Forever ☁️," she captioned it, tagging artist Mira Mariah at Fleur Noire Tattoo Parlour in New York City.

In addition, people across England have reportedly been getting bee tattoos, and local artists have pledged to donate proceeds to the victims and their families.

The city remembered the victims Tuesday with a service at Manchester Cathedral and although the singer couldn’t be there, she spent the night surrounded by family commemorating the tragic event.

Meanwhile, fans were quick to notice a cloud tattoo on Ariana’s finger that appeared during the Billboard Awards – her rumored new beau, SNL star Pete Davidson, has the same ink.

Ariana and Pete have been flirting with each other on social media. They both took to Instagram on Thursday to comment on each other’s latest photos.

Pete commented on a pic of Ariana showing off her new bee tattoo with a bee emoji, a heart emoji, and a heart-eyes emoji, and Ariana posted a blushing face emoji on a photo Pete shared of himself.

James Bay Puts His Own Spin On Taylor Swift's 'Delicate'

James Bay has gone from opening for Taylor Swift on tour to paying tribute to the singer with a cover of her song "Delicate."

He performed a stripped-down version of the song for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, with just his electric guitar and a drummer as accompaniment. He even mashed it up, adding a little of Drake’s "One Dance" at the end.

During the spot, he explained why he chose to cover "Delicate," saying, "I’m always looking out for something I can put my own twist on. I listened through a lot of different tunes and this one connected with me."

James recently released a version of his song "Us" as a duet with Alicia Keys. The two first performed the duet on The Voice season finale.

James’ latest album, Electric Light, is out now.

Jennifer Lopez Releases 'Dinero' Music Video Featuring Cardi B & DJ Khaled

The video for Jennifer Lopez’s hot new single "Dinero" with Cardi B and DJ Khaled is out now. The visual for the superstar collaboration, which was shot earlier this month in Los Angeles by director Joseph Kahn, debuted on Thursday.

Jennifer first debuted the track live at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. "She would speak in a way that would make sense to me. She had a tremendous insight about life, people, and the way they acted and what they did. I just found her very funny and amusing and I guess it was because it reminded me of the girls I grew up with…and my family!" Jennifer said of Cardi during an interview on TRL.

"Dinero" arrived earlier this month and marked Lopez’s third new song of 2018, following "El Anillo" and "Se Acabó El Amor," which featured Abraham Mateo and Yandel. Lopez’s last album A.K.A. arrived in 2014. She’s reportedly prepping a Spanish language LP, Por Primera Vez, though a release date has yet to be announced.

John Mayer Debuts Hilarious Low Budget Music Video For 'New Light'

John Mayer couldn’t agree on a budget for his new music video for "New Light," so he decided to take matters into his own hands. The 40-year-old singer-songwriter premiered his latest visual on Thursday.

"I needed to make a video for ‘New Light’ but nobody could agree on a budget, so I went to a place downtown and made this with a company that usually does birthday and Bar Mitzvah videos," John explained on his Instagram. And the result is hilariously awesome.

The tongue-in-cheek clip features Mayer dancing, spinning and flying in front a green screen, with footage of zebras, fireworks and sunsets playing behind the singer. Mayer even takes his on-screen beau for a ride in a clip-art SAAB, with the roof Photoshopped off.

Train released has their latest single, "Call Me Sir." The track, which features country artist Cam and former Gym Class Heroes frontman Travie McCoy, is a romantic pop song about lead man Pat Monahan only being respected when he’s with his lady.

Train will perform the song during their co-headlining summer tour with Hall and Oates, which runs through August 11th in Seattle. The two bands recently collaborated on the horn-fueled Hall and Oates single "Philly Forget Me Not," the pop duo’s first original track since 2002’s "Do It For Love."
