Ashley Tisdale Opens Up About 'Symptoms' Album

Ashley Tisdale revealed to Access Live’s Natalie Morales and Kit Hoover that the outpouring of love, support and understanding after she released her song "Voices In My Head" has been overwhelming.

The song, which talks about her battle with anxiety and depression, has been particularly meaningful to many fans and she said she is just overcome with emotion knowing that so many fans loved the message.

Ashley also discussed how depression and anxiety influenced her upcoming album, Symptoms. When asked why she decided to discuss her mental health struggles on her first album in nine years, Tisdale said, "I wanted to make someone at home feel less alone in their journey. It’s hard to be vulnerable. It’s scary, but I think that it’s important to share what I’ve been through, and say that I’m human and I go through those things too."

She said she was inspired to get back into studio after reading a self-help book that talked about fear of failure and noticing the negative stigma around people suffering from depression. "Whenever I’m with my friends, it’s really easy to be like, ‘Who suffers from anxiety?’ and everyone will raise their hand," she said. "But if you say ‘Who suffers from depression?’ no one will raise their hand because there’s a stigma around the word and I think we have to let go of that."

Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation Launches New Campaign In Honor Of World Kindness Day

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation is launching a new kindness campaign to coincide with World Kindness Day today.

In partnership with Zappos and SoulCycle, the foundation has announced the #MultiplyYourGood Challenge, which invites individuals to volunteer or donate to a nonprofit in their community this holiday season. For every act of kindness performed by December 21st, the Born This Way Foundation will "multiply" it by performing a good deed for one of their nonprofit partners.

Participants can share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #MultiplyYourGood and submit their good deeds on the Born This Way website.

For every act of good submitted, you’ll be entered to win a trip to Las Vegas to see Lady Gaga’s new residency, as well as take part in a service event alongside the Born This Way Foundation team.

Born This Way Foundation cofounder (and Gaga’s mother) Cynthia Germanotta said participants might consider directing their efforts toward helping the victims of the wildfires that have roiled California.

"We’re heartbroken by the devastation in California and we hope our community uses #MultiplyYourGood as an opportunity to help support those who have been impacted," Germanotta says. "We hope that those taking part in California – and beyond – consider picking one of the amazing organizations working tirelessly to respond to the wildfires and to help communities recover in the weeks and months ahead … We’re also teaming up with Starbucks to celebrate World Kindness Day and to help kickoff the #MultiplyYourGood Challenge with in store activations. Two of those are in California, and we’ll be using those activations to help support the wildfire recovery efforts as well, collecting thank you cards for first responders in Los Angeles and donations for the Red Cross in Walnut Creek."

Southern California’s Woolsey fire recently forced Gaga to evacuate her Malibu home, but in the days since she has visited a Red Cross shelter and called out President Trump to "set an example of kindness for this country."

The Born This Way Foundation, founded in 2012, aims to improve youth wellness and empower young people to create a kinder world.

Quickies: John Mayer, Josh Groban & Alessia Cara

JOHN MAYER QUIT DRINKING AFTER ‘MAKING QUITE A FOOL’ OF HIMSELF AT DRAKE’S 30TH BIRTHDAY PARTY: John Mayer reveals Drake’s 30th birthday party is the reason he quit drinking two years ago. In a new cover story with Complex, John says he "made quite a fool of himself" at the 2016 bash and it made him realize he wanted to give up alcohol completely. "I had a conversation with myself," he says. "I remember where I was. I was in my sixth day of the hangover. That’s how big the hangover was." He adds, "I looked out the window and I went, ‘Okay, John, what percentage of your potential would you like to have? Because if you say you’d like 60, and you’d like to spend the other 40 having fun, that’s fine. But what percentage of what is available to you would you like to make happen? There’s no wrong answer. What is it?’ I went, ‘100’." John said once he stopped drinking it felt "like boredom" at first, but he stuck with it and now he feels better than ever.

Troye Sivan And Charli XCX Perform '1999' On 'Fallon'

Charli XCX and Troye Sivan transformed The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s stage into a bumping club for their performance of "1999" on Monday.

Drowned in green lasers, the pair grooved along to their Nineties-obsessed lyrics. Dressed in club-ready garb – Charli XCX wore a matching slick dark blue jacket and miniskirt and Sivan was in stylish red pants – they bounced around the fog-covered stage.

Sivan also joined Fallon for a chat, discussing the track and its video and his first appearance on the program, as well impressing the host and in-house band The Roots with his "athletic" skills.

Troye Sivan recently landed another top 10 with his new album, Bloom and he stars in the new drama Boy Erased.
