Lorde is taking over the music scene.
The singer was just nominated for four Grammys and now she’s announced her North America tour dates for 2014.
In March, Lorde and her band will embark on a 16-date tour across North America which starts in Austin, Texas, making stops New York City, Chicago, Boston to name a few and winding up on the west coast at the 2,800 capacity Fox Oakland Theater in California.
Her debut album ‘Pure Heroine’ [Lava/Republic Records] has already topped most “Year End” lists including Rolling Stone Magazine’s who noted “Lorde’s languidly aphoristic lyrics balance rock-star swagger and torqued-up teenage angst”, and The New York Times, who praised “(Pure Heroine) commandeers those wide-open spaces with her lustrous voice and angel-choir harmonies carrying serious thoughts.”

Lady Gaga is only 27-years-old, but that’s not going to stop her from having tons of kids.
SiriusXM caught up with the singer, as she dished on wanting a family.
“I want to have tons of kids, actually. I think at least three,” the “Applause” singer told SiriusXM listeners gathered Friday for a Town Hall discussion at SiriusXM studios in New York City.
“I really want to have a family and I really want to nurture my children,” said Gaga.
She continued, “To be honest, having my own kids will be like having three little monsters with me all the time. They probably won’t be fans,” she added.
Gaga’s close relationship with her family is what makes her want to have a large family.
“I grew up with a very strong family and I just cannot imagine not having a normal nuclear family,” she said.
Despite the recent break up rumors, Gaga and boyfriend Taylor Kinney are still going strong. The songstress did not specify whether or not Kinney is the person she wants to build a family with. She has, however, set up ship in Chicago, where Kinney films Chicago Fire.

Lady Gaga‘s got a new attitude!!
The “Do What U Want” singer covers the December issue of attitude magazine. In this holiday issues, Gaga reveals that she smoked 15 marijuana blunts in one day. In addition to that, Gaga chats about her feud with Madonna. Check out some snippets from her feature below.
On using marijuana as a pain reliever:
“I was smoking 15 joints a day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself and then sleeping it off and then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was.”
On her crew’s help with kicking the addiction:
“[My performance artist Marina Abramovic] said, ‘OK, you’re coming to my house – no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, not food. For three days, art only. You eat only art. Now I smoke a little bit at night just, you know, for fun. But not to cope – that’s the difference. I’m the soberest I’ve ever been in the past five years.”
On her feud with Madonna:
“I I looked up to her for a long time. I’m not quite sure what her intention was [with the ‘Born This Way] and ‘Express Yourself’ mashup performance] to do that in the show, but I don’t really care. I think playing in the gossip of the tabloids and, I guess the fodder of the competition, that’s just not what I’m about. She chooses to use her voice the way she chooses to use hers and I choose to use mine the way I use mine. All it mean to me that Madonna Ciccone was singing my song on her stage and I’m 27! And as a punk-rocker from New York, I’m basically been hoping that I would become so good that one day I would piss off Madonna!”
Those infamous Olsen Twins cover the new issue of THE EDIT magazine.
Mary-Kate and Ashley have gone from childhood stars to adult fashion designers. They chatted with the magazine about their fashion careers, dealing with the paps, and fame.
On The Row:
We saw a space in the market. We knew there wasn’t another brand offering basics in a luxurious and contemporary way. If I wear certain designer brands, or too much of something, I look crazy, and I need something to break it up. If you are wearing a Chanel jacket and you need an anonymous piece that will show just how special that jacket is, I hope that is what The Row gives you,”
On becoming famous at a young age:
“We were nine months old when we started, so fame has always been part of our lives. There wasn’t any weirdness where we decided that we want to be famous. Then as we got older, we were very fortunate that we could hire and work with amazing people who want to protect us.”
On dealing with the paps:
“There is a threshold in New York, and once you pass that and are considered a New Yorker, they leave you alone. But we’re at the office every day, then home or out for dinner, so there aren’t the opportunities for them to take pictures. For the most part you try and avoid it… [I do] at least.”
On fashion and their career:
“We were designing clothes for ourselves as we were so petite. So I think that is when we became obsessed with fit, and now the obsession has become a profession.”

Move over Beyonce, Pantene has a new famous face behind its brand!
Queen Latifah has been named the new face of Pantene’s Truly Relaxed and Truly Natural Collection.
Apparently, this is an opportunity that the actress-singer has been waiting for. She says, “I’ve wanted to work with them for a long time. When they first approached me, I thought, ‘Finally!’”
She goes on to reveal to PEOPLE just why she wanted to work with Pantene. “Having black hair is unique,” she explains, “in that black women change up styles a lot. You can walk down one street block in New York City and see 10 different hairstyles that black women are wearing: straight curls, short cuts, braids — we really run the gamut. That means we have to have the products that really work for all of our various looks, and Pantene is so versatile.”
Latifah, whose talk show begins on Sept. 9, is excited to rock her hair more natural. “I’m really looking forward to wearing it natural more often. It’s just fun,” she told us.
Beyonce caused a stir last week, as she shot a music video for a song called “XO” at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, NY.
