Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga sat down with Elvis Duran on Tuesday, discussing her new album ARTPOP and her upcoming appearance at the iTunes Festival. Gaga said she will play a few new songs at the festival on September 1, but added that they will not be "the exact studio versions." As for the ARTPOP app, she said, "It’s a multimedia engineering experience where you can create art, as well as creating music, and you can share it with people all over the world and communicate with them in real-time when you listen to ARTPOP." You can hear her entire interview with Elvis, along with pictures and video, here.

Drake has moved back the release date of his new album Nothing Was The Same, from September 17 to September 24. He has also been added to this Sunday's MTV VMAs, performing "Started From The Bottom" for the first time ever on TV.

Both Metallica's upcoming 3D film and the documentary on last year's Made In America festival will have their debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) next month. Spin reports that Metallica: Through The Never will screen on September 9 in IMAX, and the band will be on hand to introduce the film. Meanwhile, Ron Howard's documentary about the 2012 Made In America festival in Philadelphia will screen on September 7. The festival was curated by Jay Z, who headlined night one, with Pearl Jam headlining the second night.

With rumors swirling that this Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards will host an N*SYNC reunion, Lance Bass addressed the subject on his SiriusXM show, Dirty Pop With Lance Bass. Bass did not exactly confirm or deny the reunion, he simply explained that he, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick flew to Miami to see Justin Timberlake's concert there last Friday. He posted a photo of himself with Fatone and Kirkpatrick on Instagram, which he says fueled the speculation. "I think that's what started the rumor that there's going to be this big reunion with N*SYNC," Bass said on his show. "It's amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media [and] how many people are supporting N*SYNC. It's so nice to see because when we ended things [over] 10 years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter, but it's so cute to see how many people are supporting [us], and N*SYNC was even trending."

Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards and One Direction member Zayn Malik are ready to tie the knot. The couple walked the red carpet together at yesterday's London premiere of the movie One Direction: This Is Us, and Edwards was seen sporting some new bling on her left ring finger, sparking speculation the two were engaged. A rep for One Direction confirmed the rumors to MTV News, saying: "Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private."

M.I.A. has posted a new track online called "Unbreak My Mixtape." The track, presumably from her upcoming album, Matangi, samples Blur's "Tender" and Karen Dalton's "I Love You More Than Words Can Say." After many delays, Matangi is set to come out on November 5.
