No pop star has summed up the cultural moment like this since vintage python-era Britney. Except Brit was an unfiltered-and-proud mess of a Southern girl, while Harry is pure enigma. If he has any inner turmoil, he keeps it to himself. He remains a blank space (so to speak) on which we can project any style (so again to speak) of fantasy. He’s the last of the great English fabs, upholding a 50-year tradition. Yet the more famous he gets, the more mysterious he seems. He just glides through it all, with a hint of Brian Jones lunacy in his cracked grin.

Sometimes I re-read things like this that I read a couple years ago and think, is he still this wonderfully evocative yet weirdly obscure human? and the answer is always, yes….he really is…except he’s even better, (or worse, depending on your viewpoint) and I totally dig it in every way.  

He says he hooked up with some of Swift’s famous friends. “Taylor’s world is celebrity,” says Sheeran. “I was this 22-year-old awkward British kid going on tour with the biggest artist in America, who has all these famous mates. It was very easy. … I would often find myself in situations just kind of waking up and looking over and being like, ‘How the fuck did that happen?‘

2015 IN MAGAZINE COVERS: MEN

When you look back at 2015, these magazine covers suggest that Black men are stylish, artistic, successful, athletic, industrious, innovative, introspective and culturally relevant. With the enormous challenges and imbalances with social justice and African American men, it’s nice to see a more positive portrayal of success, elevation and beating the odds.

Alessia Cara on 'Moana,' Meeting Taylor Swift, Recapturing 'Here' Sound
"Here" singer-songwriter Alessia Cara discusses the new wave of alternative pop, why Amy Winehouse is the epitome of cool and more.

(excerpt)

When Taylor Swift interviewed you last year, it was clear she knew your album really well. Were you surprised?
I was taken aback, in a good way. It taught me that no matter how big you become, it doesn’t mean you have to stop loving music or paying attention.

When you got to perform with her on the 1989 tour, did you daydream about headlining stadiums?
Absolutely. But half of it is daydreaming and the other half is just complete terror. I’ve never been one to crave attention, which I know means that this is probably the worst career to pick. I get anxious even when people come up to me for pictures, sometimes. That’s the one thing that makes me hesitant about my future. But I love music too much to not do it.

Lady Gaga, Metallica to Duet at Grammys
Metal legends promised “very special and unique” performance

Lady Gaga will join Metallica onstage at the Grammys this Sunday. On Monday, a Gaga fan site tweeted a snippet of a Grammy promo clip declaring, “Lady Gaga duets with Metallica.” Rolling Stone has confirmed the collaboration.

This is the latest move in an impressive week from Gaga. Following her well-received Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, she announced that she will tour arenas and stadiums all over the world behind her album Joanne, which came out last October. Billboard predicts that Joanne will jump back into the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 next week as listeners scoop up copies following her Super Bowl performance.

Lady Gaga is a regular performer at the Grammys; she appeared at the ceremony last year to pay tribute to David Bowie. Metallica hasn’t been on the show since 2014, when they performed the song “One” with the classical pianist Lang Lang.

Metallica’s “Hardwired” is nominated for Best Rock Song this year. The band is competing with David Bowie, Radiohead, Twenty One Pilots and Highly Suspect. Gaga is not up for any awards as Joanne was released after the 2016 deadline.

Metallica and Gaga is one of several star pairings at the upcoming Grammys ceremony. Alicia Keys will also perform with country singer Maren Morris, while the Weeknd will reunite with Starboy collaborators Daft Punk.
