BTS’s label Big Hit Entertainment confirmed plans to debut a new boy band next year.
We plan to launch a new boy band next year,” a Big Hit rep told Forbes. “Target is to be by early next year, and we will provide more details when it’s confirmed.”
Speculation is swirling around the new group, but the only detail that Big Hit confirmed is that their debut is slated for early 2019.
This is Big Hit’s first group in six years following BTS’s formation in 2013. The first company-created group, GLAM, disbanded in 2015. The agency previously co-managed 2AM with JYP Entertainment, where Big Hit CEO Bang Si-hyuk worked as a producer until founding Big Hit in 2005.
Korean outlet Ilgan Sports recently cited industry insiders who said the group will have five members and an average age of 17. Their report also claims that the rookie group would have a different concept from BTS. Korea’s Star News
additionally reported that the member lineup would be determined by a survival show. Big Hit wouldn’t comment on these details to Forbes.
Last December, Bloomberg reported that Bang was preparing to introduce a new boy band “using a ‘success formula’ that could be replicated with other K-pop bands seeking to break into the U.S. charts.”
This has been a whirlwind year for Big Hit as flagship act BTS sealed their place as the biggest boy band in the world. Their record-breaking achievements include two No. 1 albums, a handful of RIAA certifications and even the cover of Time. The septet recently renewed their contract with Big Hit for another seven years.
After a judge controversially dismissed Kesha's abuse claims against Dr. Luke in April of 2016, the producer retaliated with a $40 million defamation case against Kesha.
This past August, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry were dragged into the legal melee when texts between Gaga and Kesha became part of the case. The texts were reported to have included discussions between the two about Dr. Luke allegedly assaulting Katy Perry, claims Perry reportedly denied in a testimony for the case.
Those 2016 texts between Kesha and Gaga have been revealed in new court documents, and they are causing quite a stir.
In the messages, Kesha tells Gaga she's upset with Perry because she believes she could help bring her whole case against Dr. Luke "to a head."
Gaga seems to be very supportive and even offers to try to talk to Perry on Kesha's behalf. Kesha eventually says, referring to Katy, "I need to find sympathy and empathy for her. she's so mean. it's hard."
Gaga replies "I know she's mean." Kesha then asks Gaga if she's "friendly with her," to which Gaga responds, "NO... Omg NO... She makes me angry about s--- [but] I just try to have empathy for her."
There has been no statment about the text from any of the above mentioned's people, on the released conversation.
Ariana Grande's highly-anticipated "Thank U, Next" music video has finally dropped and it's everything we hopped for even an apology to her ex-fiance Pete Davidson.
During the "Mean Girls" portion of the video ... Ariana's "Burn Book" includes a page for Pete with the words "Sry I Dipped," "Love U Always" and "HUUUUUUGE."
Kris Jenner also made an appearance in the "Mean Girls" part of the vid ... playing Amy Poehler's "cool mom" character. As we first reported ... a Kardashian was gonna make a dancing cameo appearance. We didn't know who at first but later learned it was Kris, and the music video confirms it.
The music video featured scenes from 4 female-driven films that have special meaning to Ariana -- "13 Going on 30," "Mean Girls," "Legally Blonde" and "Bring it On."
Tons of celebrities made cameos to help AG pull it all off ... including Jennifer Coolidge, Jonathan Bennett and Troye Sivan.
There's even a shout out to Pete Davidson's nether regions ... Ariana has some dialogue with Coolidge where she mentions a boy with a "BIG" one ... she's dropped hints on Pete's genital size before.
Ariana's been teasing the video for some time now and released a behind-the-scenes teaser of the making of the music video.
Justin posted a video on Instagram Thursday (November 29) of a little girl worried that â that "Justin Bieber quit!" A boy, who we're assuming is the little girl's brother off-camera, chimes in saying Justin "wanted to go to church more." (LOL) The adorable girl pauses and replies "nooo!" in disbelief.
Bieber captioned the post "Don't believe everything you read sweet little girl you will hear something from me sooner than you think."
The post is JB's first in nearly a week, and first music-related post in... a lot longer. It's easy to see why fans are basically having a meltdown.
It's been over three years since Bieber dropped 2015's huge Purpose album, which spawned the massive No. 1 hits "What Do You Mean," "Sorry," and "Love Yourself." Since then we've seen Justin pop up on hits like Luis Fonsi's inescapable "Despacito" remix and DJ Khaled's "I'm the One" and "No Brainer."
Nicki Minaj and Cardi B might have said their beef was over and they're focusing on more positive things, but it seems Nicki has taken a new shot at Cardi with the casting in her "Good Form" music video with Lil Wayne. Nicki cast sisters Baddie Gi and Jade in the video – The same pair who allege Cardi B and her crew attacked them with bottles and chairs in a Queens strip club this past August.
Allegedly, Cardi confronted the women, who are bartenders at the strip club, about one of them having an affair with her husband, rapper Offset of Migos. Back in October, Cardi turned herself in to the NYPD for the charges. While not arrested, she was ordered to appear in court at a future date to answer to the accusations.
You can spot the two bartenders at the :40 second mark and throughout the video. Nicki even posted a photo with the pair on her Instagram after dropping the video Thursday (November 29). The sisters are the two blonde women in the foreground.
Miley Cyrus Releases New Song and Music Video for 'Nothing Breaks Like a Heart' with Mark Ronson
Miley Cyrus released her first single in over a year, a futuristic country-tinged tune called “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart,” which is the lead single off of Mark Ronson’s upcoming album, his first solo album in nearly four years.
“This broken silence, my thunder crashing in the dark/ Crashing in the dark And this broken record, spinning in circles In the bars, spinning ’round in the bars/ This road can’t hurt you, it cuts you deep and leaves a scar/ Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart, ooh/ Nothing breaks like a heart, nothing breaks like a heart,” Cyrus sings in the chorus.
On the song’s country disco beat and acoustic guitar riffs, Ronson recently told BBC, “It wasn’t an intentional thing. I heard the drawl in her voice and the twang when I saw her live on SNL. My jaw dropped and I became super-fixated about being able to work with her.”
Ronson added: “But we weren’t trying to make a Western song. I think with Miley, just the way she wrote the verses and the way the melody came out, came naturally.”
Offset Teases Joint Album With Cardi B
Between the Migos dropping their third studio album at the top of the year, embarking on the Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour, and working on a solo album, Offset has had a monumental year and he doesn’t plan on hitting the brakes.
The Atlanta rapper teased a joint project with his wife, Cardi B. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Offset expressed that his relationship with the “Bodak Yellow” rapper changed him for the better.
“I’d seen her potential, her vision, her grind. Whatever she does, she’s going to master it,” Offset shared, talking about how Bardi has influenced him. “She’s like me. She brings excitement and pressure to me, but I like that. She’s No. 1, so every time I’m hitting the charts, I’ve got to be Top 10.”
After releasing a surprise Halloween mixtape, Kim Petras returns to her brighter roots in a new track with electronic music DJ trio, Cheat Codes. Petras’ pure pop sound works effortlessly with Cheat Codes electronic mixes to produce the fun, yet melancholy track “Feeling of Falling” out today (Nov. 30).
The track and lyrics resonated with an emotional side of Petras which helped her easily connect to the song. She was also happy to express this vulnerability alongside Cheat Codes.
“I’m the biggest emo so I really connected to the song!” Petras said. “Cheat Codes are amazing and I’ve had the best time collaborating on this one."
Cheat Codes also wanted listeners to feel and relate to the emotional message of the song.
"The feeling of falling in love is great but it's hard not to think about or compare it to past experiences of heartbreak,” Cheat Codes said. “It puts you in a really vulnerable place. It can be the best thing but also the worst."
