Tinashe has left RCA Records, citing creative differences. According to the singer’s manager Mike Nazzaro, she was not dropped, and instead, the split was amicable and necessary.
We initiated for her to be released. It was a positive split for her. It’s giving her back creative control. [The split has] been a respectful separation on both sides. Her relationship with RCA was a long-term relationship, but they needed space. It was time to part ways.
Despite reports, Tinashe has walked away from the label for the past month. As far as what’s next, her manager says, she’s excited for this next step in her career. We’re trying to decide now, if we want new partners, who the next ones will be.
The singer released two full length projects under the RCA umbrella; her debut album “Aquarius” in 2014, and 2018’s “Joyride.” The singer’s artist profile has been removed from RCA’s roster. The record label is home to rising star and Grammy Award winner H.E.R., Alicia Keys, Bryson Tiller, A$AP Ferg, Jazmine Sullivan and Brittney Spears.

Jussie Smollett's "Empire" on-camera time is getting cut down in the wake of a growing sentiment that he staged the so-called "attack."
Production sources say that Jussie was supposed to have 9 scenes and a big musical number in the second to the last episode -- which is being shot now -- but, 5 of his scenes have been cut, and his musical number has been dropped.
With his role in the show cut, Jussie will be spending way less time on set. Instead of working every day this week, we're told Jussie's working Friday and possibly Thursday, and he won't be rehearsing.
In the past 24 hours, the script has undergone multiple revisions.
Jussie's case is heading to a Grand Jury as early as Tuesday and law enforcement sources say the focus is presenting evidence that could lead to a felony indictment against Jussie for allegedly filing a false police report.
Billboard announced on Sunday, Feb. 17, that the 26th annual Billboard Music Awards will go down on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, and with that 'The Army' asked one major question: Will BTS' music be nominated for a 2019 Billboard Music Award?
Well, there's almost no doubt they'll at least get one non-musical nomination. The boys have been No. 1 on Billboard's Social 50 for 83 consecutive weeks (the longest stretch for any artist in the chart's history) and they've held the number one spot for a total of 113 non-consecutive weeks. Those numbers will almost definitely nab them their third Best Social Artist nomination. And since the award is fan-voted, let's be real, BTS probably has the award in the bag.
But 2018 was a major year of history-making accomplishments for BTS, and for ARMY, an award for the boys' social clout rather than their musical accomplishments just won't cut it anymore. So, again, the real question is will BTS get a BBMA nomination for their actual music this year? It's an important distinction.
Frankly, we won't know the answer until Billboard announces the nominees. But unlike the Grammys, where nominations and winners are determined through a complicated voting process involving Recording Academy members, BBMA nominations and winners are based on album and digital songs sales, streaming, radio airplay, touring, and social engagement — which means it's somewhat easier to predict what nominations BTS could make out with this year.

Demi Lovato is back in rehab.
Lovato has checked herself back into a rehabilitation center in Hawaii after all the backlash she faced involving a tweet she posted about rapper 21 Savage's ICE arrest. Sources close to Demi say she "had reportedly been doing well with recovery after she left rehab back in November following three months of treatment," but that the drama presumably made her want to seek help again.
No one from her camp has verified the claim that she is back in rehab yet.
Back in July 2018, Lovato suffered from a reported drug overdose that landed her in the hospital for weeks. She then entered herself into rehab where she stayed for three months. Since then, she's kept a relatively low profile and only shared handle of photos, including this one on January 14, which is the last time she posted.
Meanwhile, her rumored boyfriend, Henri Levy, wrote her a loving message on Instagram to celebrate Valentine's Day. Though his account his private, E! News reports he wrote “Happy Valentine’s Day to this beautiful soul @ddlovato… I love you to the moon and back" alongside a selfie of him and Lovato.
