Camila Cabello says she "missed out" as a kid because of her "crippling" shyness

Getty Images North America via ABC/John Shearer/AMA2018Watching Camila Cabello command the stage on tour or at award shows, it's hard to believe that as a kid, she was so shy, she wasn't able to enjoy life as much as she wanted to.

Speaking to People magazine, the 22-year-old star says, “I used to be cripplingly shy. I feel like even though I often pushed myself, I missed out on some life experiences, or didn’t enjoy them as much as I could’ve.”

She adds that as a kid, she was "very introverted, introspective, in my own little world a lot,” but because she had a “big imagination,” she was able to "have fun by myself in my room.”  In public, though -- like school, for example -- Camila admits she was "kind of invisible."

Looking back, Camila wishes she could tell her younger self, "Get out of your comfort zone more. You’re stronger than you think.”

The singer's come a long way in the confidence department since then.

“Of course there’s been times growing up that I felt insecure about something physically,” says Camila. "But I’ve always known someone’s personality is the most important and most attractive or unattractive quality.”

Camila is one of the stars named as a "Beauty of the Year" in People magazine's upcoming Most Beautiful Issue, due out April 26.

As previously reported, the "Havana" singer will make her movie debut in a reimagining of the classic fairy tale Cinderella.

Kelly Clarkson shuts down tabloid story about Carrie Underwood "feud": "At least give me a good pic if y'all are gonna be lying"

Disney Channel/Image Group LAKelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are in a secret feud! Except they're actually not, and Kelly is calling out Star magazine for claiming they are.

Kelly tweeted a photo of the magazine's cover -- which claims that the two American Idol winners' "secret feud" has exploded, and they are "TRASHING each other to friends" -- and complained that the magazine didn't even have the decency to use a good picture of her.

"Someone just sent me this & I'm like why does she get the good pic & I have the worst expression I've ever made w/zero muscles being used in my face ha!" she wrote. "I officially have a feud w/whoever used this pic!"

"At least give me a good pic if y’all are gonna be lying is all I’m sayin'," she added.

When a fan responded, "Carrie didn't get the bad pic because there is no bad pic of Carrie," Kelly replied, "Hahaha touché  well, I have PLENTY of rough ones ha! But I guess it builds character and keeps me humble... this is what I tell myself."

As most fans know, Kelly and Carrie are totally cool. Last June, the two even posed together on the red carpet at the Radio Disney Awards, specifically to shut down rumors that they are rivals.

"Everybody always tries to pit me and Carrie against each other," Kelly told Entertainment Tonight. "So, when I saw her I was like, ‘You know what? Let’s just end this right now and get a picture together because we are never in the same place.'”

And last April, the two supported each other on Twitter, with Carrie writing, "I do wish more publications would just celebrate women’s success without pitting them against each other."

Ariana Grande admits to fans that making music "is healing" but performing it "is hell"

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for AGAs Ariana Grande gears up for this weekend’s Coachella performance, she opened up to fans on Twitter about why performing her new songs isn’t always easy.

On Thursday, one fan tweeted, "Music is your therapy and I love seeing it heal you." In a since-deleted tweet, Ariana responded honestly, “Making it is healing. Performing it is like reliving it all over again and it is hell.”

Fans quickly rushed to her support, with some telling her they “wouldn’t be mad” if she cancelled the rest of her tour so she could take care of herself. Ariana was adamant she wouldn’t do that, despite telling another fan she doesn’t think touring is good for her health.

“Honestly. It’s been v hard. I have sm on my mind and it’s so heavy and no energy to process or work thru any of it but I’m trying hard…I wish it were a year ago. I’d give anything,” she wrote in a tweet captured by fans.

Ariana added that she probably wouldn’t be tweeting as much in the near future, because she's trying to get into a better headspace.

“i just feel empty and i wanna have more to say / better energy to give to u and rn i don’t have anything. love u,” she wrote.

In the past couple of years, Ariana has been through a lot, to say the least: the Manchester bombing, the death of her ex Mac Miller and a very public broken engagement with Pete Davidson.

Last week, Ariana posted photos on her Instagram Story showing scans of her brain which indicated that she suffers from PTSD. She later apologized for freaking fans out with the scans.

Katy Perry lends her "poom poom" to Daddy Yankee & Snow's "Con Calma"; sounds a little "horse" on Lil Dicky's "Earth"

El Cartel Records/UMLE/Capitol RecordsHe's her Puerto Rican dream, and she's his California gurl: Katy Perry has hopped on a remix of Daddy Yankee & Snow's #1 Latin hit "Con Calma."

The original song, which first came out in January, is a re-imagining of Canadian rapper Snow's 1992 smash "Informer," which spent seven weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993.

"All eyes on my when I light up the room/You play the right vibe and my body will move/Easy baby, I see you're in the mood," sings Katy.

"Con calma/I see you're lovin' the way I work the floor now/I got the poom-poom, boy/You could be my Puerto Rican dream, I'll be your California gurl now."

This is the second major collab of 2019 for Katy, following her song with Zedd, "365," but she also appears briefly on a third song: Lil Dicky's "Earth," which also dropped Friday. 

Katy's one of 32 different artists on the single, whose proceeds will go environmental charities. In the animated video, she voices a pony, singing, "I'm a pony, just a freak horse/C'mon, get on/Giddyup let's ride."

Other stars on the song include Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Charlie Puth, and Miley Cyrus.

Lil Dicky loves the Earth and hopes you do too

ABCAt the stroke of midnight, Lil Dicky dropped a new song and music video in support of the environment. The new single "Earth" is a star-packed affair that features 32 big name artists, including Halsey, Shawn Mendes, Miley Cyrus, SiaEd Sheeran, Katy Perry and dozens more.

Before the song was released, the rapper appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to explain its purpose.

"I mean, there's an environmental crisis going on right now...the more this song is streamed and interacted with, the more money we raise for charity," said Dicky, adding "Let's save the Earth."

He also teased a short clip of the animated music video in which Justin Bieber gives voice to a baboon, Ariana Grande is a zebra, Snoop Dogg is a marijuana plant, Ed Sheeran is a koala and Kanye West is... well, Kanye. 

But the video begins soberly, with a news clip about extreme heat and the rapidly increasing wildfires ravaging California. A teen on a skateboard glides past the fumes of a car's exhaust pipe then, when a few rowdy kids knock over a trash can, Lil Dicky shows up to trade insults. When one of the kids picks up a book from the spilled trash, it opens to reveal an animated version of nature, with Dicky singing "we love the Earth."

Is a new mural in Nashville connected to new Taylor Swift release?

ABC/Image Group LATaylor Swift fans have proven time and time again that they'll stop at nothing in their quest to discover any tiny shred of evidence that might shed light on their queen's plans -- including spinning wild theories that may or may not have any basis in reality.  Well, here's the latest.

There's a new mural that's gone up on a wall in the Gulch area of of Nashville, TN, Taylor's adopted hometown.  The image, painted by Kelsey Montague, is a large pair of multi-colored butterfly wings against a pink background.  There's a space in between them, so if you stand there, you can take a picture that makes it look like you've suddenly sprouted wings.

According to The Tennessean, fans are convinced this mural has something to do with Taylor's impending April 26 release of...something, for the following reasons:

--The mural is painted in the same kind of pastel colors that Taylor has been using in her latest Instagram posts.

--The wings in the mural are decorated with seven flowers, signifying Taylor's seventh studio album, and 13 hearts, 13 being Taylor's favorite number.

--The wings are also decorated with cats, which not only refers to Taylor's pets Olivia and Meredith, but also her upcoming role in the movie Cats

The city of Nashville is fueling the rumors by posting a photo of the mural on its Instagram site with the caption, "Hmm. Does this new @kelseymontagueart mural in @thegulchnashville have something to do with @taylorswift? Only time will tell!"

Seems as though April 26 can't come soon enough.

Joey Fatone on why *NSYNC's Coachella performance made him "teary-eyed;" says they won't perform this weekend

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for AGNot only did Joey Fatone get to perform with his *NSYNC bandmates and Ariana Grande at Coachella last weekend, he got to share the experience with his 18-year-old daughter Briahna.

"It was really cool. I did get a little teary-eyed, I'm not going to lie," he admitted to Entertainment Tonight.

He said his daughter has wanted to go to Coachella since last year, so he was glad that not only could he make that happen, but that she also got to see him perform.

"She was Snapchatting and she was screaming like, 'Go Daddy!'... I was like, 'Oh my god, it's so beautiful.' It was cool to see her see that,” he said.

Joey added, "I was 17 when I started with *NSYNC, and now she's 18 years old. It's bizarre. That means I'm old!"

As for whether *NSYNC will deliver a repeat performance with Ariana for Coachella’s second weekend, Joey says it was a one and done.

"[Ariana] always has something up her sleeves, so I'm sure she's going to have more surprises for you guys that weekend, but she just wanted to do it this weekend," he explained. "She'll do other things as well and kind of mix it up."

Shawn Mendes gets rejected from Dublin bar, goes to McDonald’s instead

ABC/Image Group LASorry, Shawn Mendes -- no Guinness for you.

The 20-year-old singer was turned away from a bar in Dublin, Ireland earlier this week, even though the legal drinking age there is 18.

In a fan-captured video of the incident, one of the bouncers at Bruxelles [brew-ZELLE] pub explains to a dejected Shawn that many bar managers have their own age restrictions after certain hours.

“OK, thank you. Wow,” Shawn said before walking away. “All right, bye. I tried.”

Shawn, who had just finished a concert at Dublin’s 3Arena, then did the next best thing: He went to McDonald’s. He reportedly ordered a Happy Meal and posed for a bunch of selfies with fans there just after 3 a.m.

The Canadian singer told Rolling Stone last year that he typically only drinks in his home country.

“I just don’t drink in America. I get it all out when I go home,” he said. “I don’t find it frustrating because I care about alcohol. I care about time with friends in bars.”

He added, “I’m being denied a social experience, not an alcoholic beverage. I wish I was allowed to just go in the bar and drink a pop, because then I would at least be there with everyone and I wouldn’t have to be in my hotel while everyone else is at the bar.”

Shawn officially turns 21 in August.

Axelle/Bauer-Griffin/FilmMagicTonight, Lil Dicky will release his new song and video, "Earth," which features stars ranging from Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, to Shawn Mendes, Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Halsey, Miley Cyrus and more than a dozen others.  The rapper appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday to explain the concept for the project, including the fact that the video is animated.

"So I'm putting this song out tonight called 'Earth' and it's literally got 30 of the biggest artists in the world on it, and every artist plays a different animal," Dicky explained to Ellen. "Like, Justin Bieber's a baboon, Ariana Grande's a zebra, Ed Sheeran's a koala bear, I can do that 30 times over."

"And it's all about like saving the Earth: There's an environmental crisis going on right now," he added.  In fact, proceeds from the song and video will be donated to environmental charities, in consultation with Leonardo DiCaprio's charity foundation. 

"They're gonna explain where they think the money is best served 'cause they're in this philanthropic space and I'm pretty new to the game," Dicky told Ellen, adding, "I went to his house and we played pickleball, and we spoke about the Earth.  And one thing I can tell you is that guy cares so much about the planet: Like, he gets really worked up talking about it."

Dicky also premiered 20 seconds of the video, featuring Justin and Ariana in character as a baboon and a zebra.

"Hi, I'm a baboon," sings Justin. "I'm like a man/just less advanced/and my anus is huge."

"Hey, I'm a zebra," sings Ariana. "No one knows what I do, but I look pretty cool/Am I white or black?"

The song and video both drop at midnight tonight.  Earth Day is Monday.

Is Bebe Rexha's plan for a curvy girls clothing line "Meant to Be?"

Steve Granitz/WireImageEarlier this year, Bebe Rexha revealed that some designers refused to dress her for the Grammys because they considered the singer, who's a sixe 6-8, to be "too big."  But now, after the outpouring of support she received -- not to mention the gorgeous red Monsoori ballgown she ended up wearing -- Bebe thinks she'd like to help other curvy women by creating her own line of clothing.

"Yeah, I've been working on some stuff," she tells ABC Radio. "Growing up, I remember especially when J.Lo had her jeans and I bought them and they fit me perfectly and I was like, 'Ah!' And then they stopped making them and I was like, 'I need these jeans again!'"

"So I really wanna make clothes for girls who have curves," she adds. "Like, hopefully, jeans or something. That's like my goal." 

Bebe, whose current hit is "Last Hurrah," will be appearing at a number of festivals throughout the summer, starting May 5 with SunFest in West Palm Beach, FL.

Ellie Goulding reminisces about her rebellious youth in "Sixteen" video

PolydorEllie Goulding flashes back to her teenage years in the new music video for “Sixteen.”

In the clip, Ellie sits in a car with her best friend, reminiscing about their rebellious younger days. We see younger versions of the two of them ditching school, stealing alcohol and getting tattoos. In the end, the younger versions walk past Ellie’s car and she watches them wistfully.

“I’m so excited to share ‘Sixteen’ with everyone,” Ellie said in a statement when she released the song last week. “That age was such a pivotal year for me in many ways and this song is so close to my heart. It takes me back to the reckless days of being a teenager and I hope it reminds us all about the innocence of youth.”

“Sixteen” follows Ellie's previous release, the stripped down ballad “Flux.” Her single "Close to Me," featuring Swae Lee, is a huge hit.

Ellie also has a song called "Hollow Crown," on the upcoming For the Throne album, inspired by the HBO series Game of Thrones. That project comes out April 26.

Justin Timberlake bonded with Tiger Woods over fatherhood: "We wanted our children to watch us at our best"

Andrew Redington/Getty ImagesTiger Woods has made Time magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and none other than golf-obsessed singer Justin Timberlake has written an essay paying tribute to the champion athlete.  In the essay, Justin explains that it isn't just golf that he and Tiger found they had in common.

"Last year, Tiger Woods and I spent time together, just the two of us, talking about being fathers," Justin writes. "We discussed how we want our children to see us and how you balance your dedication to them with competitive drive."

Justin adds, "I told him about how my son, who just turned 4, has started to realize what I do. We bonded over the fact that we wanted our children to watch us at our best. Tiger told me that he hoped his children, who are 11 and 10, would one day see him win a major."

"On April 14 in Augusta, Ga., they did just that when Tiger won his 15th career major -- and first in 11 years -- capping arguably the greatest comeback in sports history," Justin continued. "What a dream come true. For Tiger. For all of us."

After Woods won the Masters last weekend, he brought tears to many fans' eyes as he joyfully embraced his son Charlie, just as he'd embraced his own father 22 years ago when he won the tournament the first time.

According to Golf Digest, after his win, Woods said, "My dad was here in ’97, now I’m the dad sharing it with my kids. I’m at a loss for words…To see what it’s like to have their dad win a major championship, I hope it’s something they never forget.”
