1.One Direction’s Louis breaks silence after baby daddy news…..
Sorry girls and gays. It’s official-One Direction star Louis Tomlinson‘s life will be taking a new direction as news broke that he’s going to be a baby daddy. Since word got out about the news, Mr. Tomlinson has remained mum on the subject–until now.
Tomlinson, a fairly active Twitter user, finally broke his silence this morning, but unfortunately for Directioners, he didn’t give any comment on the news.
Amazing show ! Thank you for the support !!

Louis is reportedly expecting a baby with stylist Briana Jungwirth, but neither he nor his rep have released an official statement. Billboard confirmed the news shortly after it broke…so you know it’s true.
2.This summer’s one-hit wonder, OMI, discusses how “Cheerleader” almost didn’t happen…..
By now, we’re all familiar with OMI‘s sun-drenched single, “Cheerleader.” This week, the shimmering song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart just in time for him to sip some music tea in Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast. While sitting down with the music bible, the rising Jamaican music artist artist discusses the slow international growth of the single, why the lyrics shouldn’t offend anyone and how “Cheerleader” was almost left as an album interlude instead of a proper single.
Get to know Mr. OMI a little bit right here….cause after the summer’s gone…you may not hear from him again. #truth
3.Frenchie Davis owns it singing a jazzy cover of Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen”…
Former American Idol contestant Frenchie Davis (remember her?) recently took on Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” in the first installment of a new video series, Hip Hop Musicals. The result? It’s absoluteky fabulous as the 36-year old diva adds her trademark sass and strong vocals while taking the original to soaring new heights. But, the best part of Ms. Davis’ performance is that she slays it all with a sassy hand-on-the-hip. A must watch for your Thursday.
4.Why was Britney Spears at the ESPY’s?
Last night’s ESPY awards were no doubt a sports affair to remember (you better werk, Ms. Caitlyn), and also featured a handful of rather unlikely couples. There was noted Red Sox fan Ben Affleck presenting (lifelong Yankee) Derek Jeter with the Icon Award, Ciara almost presenting an award to the Patriots, and the one-and-only Britney Spears joining forces with Texans defensive end J.J. Watt to present the award for Best Female Athlete.
While we still can’t figure out why Britney was there (and looking terrified, as usual), the two did have quite a bit fun with their bit that was all about living Brit Brit‘s “Baby One More Time” life. Check it out below.
