Did you miss him? Pop star Sam Smith is back in our lives with “Too Good at Goodbyes,” his first track in two years.
“This song is about me and about a relationship I was in,” he tells Beats1 DJ Zane Lowe. “What I’ve been through relationship-wise the last year has made me a lot stronger…and I feel like I’ve learned some lessons from it.”
Just how did Jay-Z’s mother Gloria Carter tell her son she was gay? Rather gracefully, it turns out.
“I just finally started telling [Jay-Z] who I was,” she tells D’USSE Friday.
“Besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live. So my son started actually tearing. ‘Cause he’s like, ‘That had to be a horrible life, ma’. I was like, ‘My life was never horrible. It was just different.’ So that made him want to do a song about it….I was never ashamed of me. In my family, it was something that was never discussed… I’m tired of all the mystery. I’m gonna give it to ‘em. I don’t have to worry about anybody wondering if I’m in the life or not, I’m gonna tell them. So now that I told you, what do you have to talk about? So now maybe you can focus on the phenomenal things I do, so focus on that… Now it’s time for me to be free.”

“I tried to remember to stay at the core humanity of it,” Tina Fey tells EW, “which is the behavior that comes out of all of us sometimes out of jealousy or fear. The great thing about music is it lets you get in people’s heads and inside their emotional lives in a way that you can do with a tight close-up in movies, but it’s so much bigger and warmer.”
If you happen to be Brian Austin Green’s son, great news: He’s totally down if you want to wear a dress and probably strappy sandals, too.
“He’s four,” he says of his son Noah, who wears dresses, “and I’ve heard fro some people that they don’t agree. They don’t agree with him wearing dresses. To them I say, ‘I don’t care.’”
“He’s four and if he wants to wear it, then he wears it.”
He wooed you in Ex by the Beach, wowed you in his pornographic nude shoot for Fit Young Men, and now he’s basically going to wallop you in a new show called Bromans, which we reported earlier this week.
