Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez claims her divorce inspired her new album.

The 44-year-old star has revealed her split from ex-husband Marc Anthony in 2011, after eight years of marriage, was a "turning point" in her life and gave her a different perspective on love, which she has written about for her tenth record.

"What I thought about love for my first nine albums is very different from what I think about it now after everything I've been through. My goal was to just be as honest as I could. You know, I'd gone through a lot in my life right at that point when I went on tour. I'd been through a divorce. A lot of things had happened. I really felt like it was a turning point in my life," Jennifer - who has six-year-old twins Max and Emme with the Latin singer - told Popcrush.com.

The "On The Floor" hitmaker - who started dating her 26-year-old former back-up dancer, Casper Smart, just months after splitting from Marc - also spoke about the video for new single, "I Luh Ya Papi," and admits she enjoyed working with topless male models for the promo: "It was a lot of fun. Let me tell you something, guys have been doing these videos for years because it's fun to do. When I was doing the song, I felt like it was very tongue-in-cheek... the video, we decided to do the same thing.

Pia Mia PerezKanye West thinks he has found the next Rihanna.

The "Blood On The Leaves" singer is reportedly working in the studio with "hip" 17-year-old singer Pia Mia Perez and he is hoping to transform her into a star like the "Diamonds" hitmaker who has achieved global chart success.

"Kanye is producing some tracks for her and he's quite involved. He believes she could be the next Rihanna. [He] thinks she's young, fresh and hip - totally his target audience. He's been consulting her on a lot of his creative projects, including the Kanye x APC collection," a source said.

Pia - who is best friends with Kylie Jenner - first stepped into the spotlight last year when a video of her singing Drake's "Hold On We're Going Home" in front of the Canadian rapper and Kanye at a dinner party hosted by Kylie's family, including Kanye's fiancee Kim Kardashian, went viral on the internet.

Kurt CobainKurt Cobain's childhood home could be turned into a museum.

Fans of the late Nirvana singer have joined a campaign to raise money to turn the property in Aberdeen, Washington into a tourist attraction. The "Numb" singer's mother, Wendy O'Connor, put the bungalow on the market last year for $500,000, even though it was only valued for about $67,000 and now fan journalist Jaime Dunkle has now set up a page on website GoFundMe to try and pull in $700,000 to "[make] sure this house is memorialized by us fans so it doesn't end up in the clutches of capitalist greed."

She said she sent information about herself to Kurt's mother to prove that she wasn't a "crazed fan" and was serious about trying to raise the money. "I used to be in the American Criminal Justice Association, so I made a long list of everything I've ever done and emailed it to the real estate agent, and she said she was forwarding it to Mrs O'Connor. After that, they started taking me more seriously, I think. It took weeks of phone calls and emails, but I successfully set up an appointment to see the house. I deliberately arranged it to be on what would have been Kurt Cobain's 47th birthday," Jaime told the Broward-Palm Beach New Times.

U2U2 won't release a new album until next year.

Although the band have performed live - appearing at The Oscars, The Golden Globes and on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon - and debuted two new tracks, "Ordinary Love" and "Invisible," they are still trying to perfect songs for their new album.

"It seems to be taking longer for them to finish an album as they get older, but the great thing about U2 is that the whole of a record is always better than the sum of its parts. That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it, a source told Billboard.

The album is being helmed by executive producer Danger Mouse and U2 - Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen - have scheduled further sessions with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth to complete the as-yet-untitled record.

Kurt CobainKurt Cobain's former roommate is selling his belongings on the internet.

Items belonging to the Nirvana frontman, who committed suicide and was found dead in his home in Seattle, Washington in 1994, are being sold on Craiglist by a man claiming to have lived with the star in Capitol Hill in Washington.

Kurt's belongings include skis, a phone and video game, range between $25 and $80, which the old roommate had kept hold of for a number of years. "I have been holding on to a bunch of stuff that he left in a box when he moved out. He owed us rent and said he would get the box when he came back and gave us the money but he never came back, then when he was famous he never really talked to any of us again because Courtney [Love] never liked us," he wrote.

But the roommate, who was a bass player in Seattle rock band Gruntruck, insists he's not a fan of the Hole singer, so there are "no hard feelings" and he plans to sell more of Kurt's belongings. "I also have a lot more stuff of kurts, like magazine and clothes that i will be selling off soon. thank you for looking [sic]," he added.

Pharrell's 'G I R L'Pharrell Williams has defended the cover of his new album G I R L after it sparked racial controversy.

The "Happy" hitmaker received criticism for the artwork, which features him stood next to three women, because critics assumed they were all white and thought he should have included a black woman on the cover.

"What really disappointed me is that, man, [the critics] jumped the gun 'cause the woman I'm standing closest to is black and she's a black girl from Wisconsin I used to date over 10, 12 years ago. That must suck for people to just look at something and assume they know what's going on..." he said.

The 40-year-old singer, who is now married to Helen Lasichanh, also praised black women, in particular 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o: "I told her two weeks ago at the Oscars luncheon her skin was flawless, I love her skin, my god."

RihannaRihanna is working on a concept album for new animated film Home.

The superstar's next record will be entirely inspired by the new 3D DreamWorks Animation movie, in which she voices a teenager called Gratuity "Tip" Tucci.

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation, revealed the news during the company's quarterly earnings announcement, explaining that Rihanna will perform new songs. While no further details have been confirmed, the release is likely to coincide with the film - based on author Adam Rex's 2007 children's book The True Meaning of Smekday - hitting cinemas this November.

The album will be Rihanna's first since 2012's Unapologetic, and a welcome return from the 26-year-old star, who released a new record every single year from 2009 until 2012. Despite taking a year off in 2013, the hardworking singer remained in the charts by collaborating with Eminem's smash hit "Monster" from his album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 and more recently with Shakira on "Can't Remember to Forget You."
