Why did Justin Timberlake tell Beyoncé, “There’s something wrong with you?” Is Jack White putting out a new album this year? Does Lorde see herself as a big star?

  • Katy Perry demanded an entire produce department on her backstage rider for her recent New Year’s Eve concert in Las Vegas. She asked for (among other things) non-stop fresh veggies, two large baskets of fruit (one HAD to be tropical), quinoa, sliced pineapple, and fresh guacamole. [TMZ]
  • In the latest part of her “Self-Titled” documentary, Beyoncé takes us inside how she co-wrote “Rocket” with Justin Timberlake and Miguel. Bey’s performance prompted praise from Pharrell and Timberlake, who said, “There’s something wrong with you.” [Rap-Up]
  • Jack White’s followup to Blunderbuss could be released this year. White recently shared that he’s producing two albums and one is his own. [Hollywood Reporter]
  • Lorde might be one of the biggest break out stars in music, but she certainly doesn’t see herself that way. A new interview with Tavi Gevinson‘s Rookie shows Lorde’s inner teen fangirl. [MTV News]
