October 16, 2012

Taylor Swift debuted a snippet of the new song "State of Grace" on Good Morning America on Monday, and less than 24 hours later, the track was already #1 on iTunes. "I wrote this song about when you first fall in love with someone ... the possibilities, kind of thinking about the different ways that it could go," Swift explained on GMA. "It's a really big sound. To me, this sounds like the feeling of falling in love in an epic way." The song is the fourth one that Swift has previewed from her Red album, which comes out next week. Swift will celebrate the album release with a two-day stand on Good Morning America on Monday and Tuesday.

Green Day's next album, ˇDos!, is due on November 13, and the band has released a new trailer for the upcoming set. Check it out below:




Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro will appear on the FX show Sons of Anarchy in the final two episodes of the current season, according to Entertainment Weekly. Navarro will portray a member of the Biz Lats gang. Additionally, Jane's Addiction will perform a version of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" for the season finale.

It's only October, but the rumors are flying that Beyoncé will perform at the Super Bowl halftime show on February 3 in New Orleans. An official announcement about the show is expected to come on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. Beyoncé is actually no stranger to the Super Bowl, as she sang the national anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown of Houston.

The band fun. and designer Rachel Antonoff have joined forces to create The Ally Coalition (TAC), a partnership devoted to encouraging and inspiring the music, fashion, and entertainment communities to take action in support of LGBTQ equality. The Ally Coalition aims to have an across the board presence in music, fashion and entertainment and will work individually with members from each community to raise both awareness and funds in support of LGBTQ equality. The first of these endeavors will be with fun. on the upcoming REVERB Campus Consciousness Tour, which will hit an array of colleges across the country this fall, starting on November 1 in East Stroudsburg, PA. 

Trent Reznor is getting involved with Dr. Dre's "Beats By Dre" line of headphones, though it's not clear exactly what Reznor will be doing. The NIN rocker posted a vague message on Facebook that reads: "For the past year I have indeed been involved with Dre, Jimmy Iovine, Luke Wood, and the rest of the team on a number of very interesting projects that will start to emerge next year. I have been wanting to experiment and focus my energy and creativity in some different directions, and Beats has afforded me that very opportunity. The process has been challenging and fascinating and as much as I'd like to tell you about the things we've dreamed up... I just can't. Not yet."

Kid Cudi has joined the cast of the romantic comedy Two Night Stand, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The flick tells the story of two characters, played by Analeigh Tipton and Miles Teller, who meet online and hook up for a one-night stand, but a snow storm forces them to spend more time together. Cudi will play the boyfriend of Tipton's roommate, who is played by Jessica Szohr (Gossip Girl). Cudi also recently wrapped filming on Goodbye World with Adrian Grenier and he starred in Kanye West's Cruel Summer short film.

The Jonas Brothers are putting the finishing touches on their next studio album, although no solid release date has been set. "We're hoping to create an experience for our fans that is really personal and shows a little bit deeper look into what our lives have been like, as far as lyrics," Nick Jonas told MTV. "But, musically we're trying to push ourselves and continue to grow and get better." The guys previewed some new songs at a show in New York City last week called "Let's Go" and "First Time," but they aren't saying if either of those will be a single. "No, actually, we don't [have any release dates yet,] but hopefully soon," added Kevin Jonas. "It's kind of the kickoff so... check back in."
