Lady Gaga’s 5th studio album Joanne has finally been released after a long three years in development with a star-studded lineup including Beck, Father John Misty and Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age.
Latest promotional single A-YO in particular even has Este Haim from HAIM on the drums!
A-YO was released as a response to The Chainsmokers simply dissing Gaga from out of nowhere, with Alex Pall even going as far as saying it sucks and even making a rude gesture afterwards.
Even after all that’s already been said, Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers decided to insult Halsey after she praised Gaga to the skies.
I’m pretty sure The Chainsmokers would never be working with Halsey anytime soon after Drew earned himself a well-deserved unfollow.
Gaga’s response? A link to her final song released before the album drops.
Listen to the country-pop tinged song below!

Ashley Tisdale recently sat down to cover Paramore's Still Into You with her husband, Christopher French.
After being happily married for slightly over two years, the lyrics "I should be over all the butterflies/ But I'm into you/ And baby even on our worst nights/ I'm into you/ Let 'em wonder how we got this far/ Cause I don't really need to wonder at all/ Yeah after all this time I'm still into you." basically prove that this is the perfect song choice for the couple to cover.
The way the pair looks at each while singing the words to the soundtrack of their relationship was indeed adorable and gave us hope that love still exists in the Hollywood realm.
It's especially exciting to see Ashley starting this series of Music Sessions on her YouTube channel because we have not heard anything music wise from her since forever as she has been really busy with her producing endeavours and her new makeup line.

Little Mix has been on a massive roll lately, from the huge success of the Get Weird era that stretched for almost a year - churning out eargasmic singles such as Black Magic and Hair.
Barely half a year since Hair was released, their newest album already has a release date. Little Mix’s 4th studio album Glory Days will be released on November 18 and is rumoured to feature songwriting from Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor and even some MNEK-produced tracks.
Lead single Shout Out To My Ex kicks off the album and it’s the sassiest, shadiest thing the girls have ever done. Although it kinda sounds like G.R.L.’s Ugly Heart.
The lyrics however barely keeps it lowkey about who the song is about despite all four girls having had ex-boyfriends before.
I mean who else got their girlfriend tatted on them and took four long years to call it quits?
Yep, none other than former One Direction member, Zayn Malik.
The dissing doesn’t stop there, when Perrie even claimed she forced her orgasms whilst in the relationship.
Watch the world premiere performance of Shout Out To My Ex below to uncover the not-so-subtle line below!

DNCE’s epic music videos and eccentric frontman Joe Jonas has put a constant spotlight on the band, despite the band debuting less than a year ago with Cake By The Ocean (which I bet you didn’t know was directed by supermodel Gigi Hadid!).
Body Moves, the band’s lead single off their self-titled debut studio album DNCE, was highly anticipated by fans and critics alike, wanting to hear more of their radio-friendly pop numbers. Surely enough, they delivered.
The song was primarily written by Joe with some assistance from famed songwriter-producer Rami Yacoub, who famously worked on this track about 20 years ago.
The party-pop song follows a shirtless Joe trapped in an elevator, miles away from the nearest shirt, with Charlotte McKinney in some NSFW positions. Of course, the band makes an appearance jamming out in the umpteenth Hannah Lux Davis video of 2016.
Watch the steamy video below!
