John Shearer/Getty Images for MTV

It's finally happened: There's a new *NSYNC song out in the world. And Lance Bass, for one, is grateful people are excited about it.

Reflecting on the release of "Better Place," recorded for the Trolls Band Together soundtrack, Lance wrote on his Instagram Story, "This song is truly a love letter to all of our fans who have been our incredible support system. You guys have stood by us through it all, even when our fashion choices were, well, let's just say 'unique.'"

"You guys have always thought that this would happen again, even when we didn't," he continued. 

Addressing his bandmates, Lance wrote, "There's a unique magic that happens when we come together, and I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else ... I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for the journey we've shared and the one that lies ahead."

Justin Timberlake, meanwhile, isn't quite so serious about this momentous occasion. In a blooper reel all the guys have posted on their Instagram pages, he, Lance, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick try to record a joint announcement about the song, but keep messing up.

"Hi, we're *NSYNC," they start. "And you're listening to our new song," says Joey. "Let us know if you like it," adds Justin. "And if you don't, go f*** yourself."

Music notes: Jonas Brothers, Melissa Etheridge and more

The Jonas BrothersNick, Joe and Kevin – wished a happy birthday to the “bonus Jonas,” their younger brother, Frankie. They all shared photos to their social media in celebration of Frankie turning 23 on Thursday, September 28. “Happy birthday to one of the coolest people I know,” Joe captioned his post. Frankie responded, “I wouldn’t know how to be cool if I didn’t have you to look up to.”

He may produce scary movies for a living, but Blumhouse founder Jason Blum says one thing scares him more than anything. "The one thing that scares me to death is Taylor Swift!" he jokes to Entertainment Weekly. So much so that he "bowed his head" and changed the release date of The Exorcist: Believer so it wouldn’t compete with Taylor’s Eras Tour concert film. Exorcist now comes out October 6, while Taylor’s movie comes out October 13.

And speaking of Taylor, "Cruel Summer" has become her longest-leading number one on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart. It tops the chart for the eighth week, surpassing her seven-week chart-topper "I Knew You Were Trouble" in 2013.

Pink’s collaboration with country star Chris Stapleton, “Just Say I’m Sorry,” took home the Crossover Song of 2023 award at the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards Thursday night.

Melissa Etheridge posted a clip of the finale to her opening night performance of her Broadway show, My Window. "Wow - what a special opening night on BROADWAY!" she captioned it. "A special thank you to all the wonderful fans who came to see the show, and to all the people who helped make this happen. Broadway - here I am!"

Christina Aguilera plans musical based on 'Burlesque' film

Anita Bugge/WireImage

Back in 2010, Christina Aguilera and Cher co-starred in the movie Burlesque — and Entertainment Weekly has learned that Xtina is working behind the scenes to reimagine the film as a stage musical.

Christina is an executive producer on the show, called Burlesque: The Musical. It's written by the movie's director, Steven Antin, and includes songs that were written for the movie by Christina, Sia and Diane Warren. Additional songs were written by Todrick Hall and Jess Foley. It's expected to debut in the U.K.

A few years ago Antin told EW he was working to turn Burlesque into a "hybrid television event/series," but it appears he's now settled on a musical.

The original movie starred Christina as a young woman named Ali who becomes friendly with Cher's Tess, the owner of an LA burlesque club. It was a flop when it was released, but has since done well on home video and now has a cult following. 

The soundtrack album also did well: it was nominated for a Grammy and one of the songs Cher performs, "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song in 2011. The album features Christina's songs "Show Me How You Burlesque," "Express" and her rendition of Etta James' "Something's Got a Hold on Me."

New Music Friday: Ed Sheeran, Goo Goo Dolls and more

Ed Sheeran has said that his new album Autumn Variations doesn't have any official singles, but when it arrived on Friday, it came with a live performance video of one of the album's track, “American Town.”  In the clip, Ed's sitting by some railroad tracks in the middle of the woods, playing the song — inspired by his wife, Cherry — on an acoustic guitar.

Goo Goo Dolls are out with a live performance of their breakthrough song "Name," recorded in 1995 in New York City. It's the first release from their upcoming album Live At The Academy, due out October 20. The 32-track album includes the band's soundcheck, full set and encores  from what, at the time, was their biggest New York City show to date.

ABBA’s Agnetha Fältskog has shared a track from her upcoming album A+, a reimagining of her last solo record, 2013’s A.  It's a new version of the tune “I Should’ve Followed You Home,” a duet with Take That’s Gary Barlow. A+, dropping October 13, is available for preorder now.

It's never too early for holiday music. The vocal group The Tenors is out today with Christmas with The Tenors. The first single and video is their rendition of  I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm.” The album features covers of classics like "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" as well as takes on more unexpected songs like Sia's "Snowman" and Chris Rea's "Driving Home for Christmas." The group's Now & Forever Tour starts November 3.

Sam Smith performs '80s classic at designer boyfriend's fashion show

If you're a fashion designer and your boyfriend conveniently happens to be a global pop star, then you've got the entertainment for your latest show all set.

On September 28, designer Christian Cowan presented his first show for Paris Fashion Week, and his rumored boyfriend Sam Smith provided a musical moment in the middle of the event. According to Fashion Network, Sam took the stage wearing a huge black faux fur cape and hat, and carried a fur-covered cane. They posted photos of their look on Instagram.

Sam performed the hit song "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" by the '80s British dance pop group Dead or Alive, in tribute to the group's late singer, LGBTQ icon Pete Burns. Cowan's entire spring/summer 2024 women's collection was called Freak Unique, which was the title of Burns' autobiography.

On Instagram, Cowan wrote, "I’d like to capture the punk, British, glamorous and experimental nature of Burns within this collection. To bolster this, there could be no greater choice than a performance by @samsmith to evoke this spirit. As they have done through their incredible and boundary pushing career."

Back in June, Sam and Christian were seen kissing each other in New York City. They've been linked since they were first spotted together in January.

In other Sam Smith news, a podcast they narrated was named Podcast of the Year at the British Podcast Awards, the BBC reports. The podcast, A Positive Life: HIV from Terrence Higgins to Today, is named after one of the first people in the U.K. to die of an AIDS-related illness, and covers the history of HIV in the U.K. over the last 40 years.

Next week, it'll be a Merry Cher Christmas when the legendary diva releases the first single from her upcoming holiday album.

The single, "DJ Play a Christmas Song," the first release from her album Christmas, will be out October 6. She posted a snippet on Instagram, and it's giving major "Believe" vibes.

Meanwhile, Cher, 77, seems to be back with boyfriend Alexander "AE" Edwards, 37, after the two initially broke up in May. This month, they've been seen together at Paris Fashion Week and in LA.

"Alexander is playing the game well," an insider dished to Page Six. "He gave her space when she first called it off ... Cher does enjoy spending time with him. The fact is at this point in her life she just wants to be happy.”

The insider also said that the death of Cher's close friend Tina Turner, who passed away in May at age 83, has convinced her to go for it.

"With the passing of her friend Tina, she is realizing life is to short,” said the insider. “She just wants to be happy, and Alex is filling that gap right now.”

Ed Sheeran gets drunk during six-hour NYC bar crawl celebrating new album release

Ignat/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images

Thursday night in New York City, drinks were on Ed Sheeran.

On the morning of Friday, September 29, Ed posted a video on Instagram documenting a bar crawl he undertook on Thursday to celebrate his new album, Autumn Variations.

“Right, to celebrate my album release I’m gonna pub crawl, go in random bars and drinks are on me for the next six hours… let’s… GO!” Ed announces in the video. It then cuts to Ed in on his first drink in his first bar, where he notes that things aren't really popping off. "We're not there yet," he complained, in terms of level of excitement.

He then announces that he's "going to the f****** place where people wanna go for it!" and hops on the subway, where he chats with a guy while mostly being ignored by everyone else. Next, we see him in a much more active establishment, playing beer pong and setting up shots on the bar, surrounded by a fairly lively crowd.

In the last 90 minutes, Ed heads down to New York's Greenwich Village and finally finds the vibe he's been looking for. He lines up shots for the excited crowd and serves them on trays while people chant, "Ed! Ed! Ed!"

At the end of the night — and the video — Ed sums up his experience.

“When we started out, the place… they weren’t feeling it,” he says. "The next place? Weren’t feeling it either. We got on the subway, and then… here we are. I’m very drunk right now. Very drunk. Autumn Variations out right now!"

Taylor Swift's record label denied request to play her music during Chiefs-Bears game, producer says

David Eulitt/Getty Images

While Taylor Swift was frequently on camera last weekend during FOX's coverage of the Chiefs-Bears game at Arrowhead Stadium, you didn't hear any of her music played. As a FOX NFL producer reveals, it wasn't for lack of trying.

In a blog post, NFL lead producer Richie Zyontz reveals that late in the morning of September 24, he and his team were notified that Taylor would indeed be at the stadium to watch Travis Kelce and the Chiefs. Since they'd heard that it might happen, Zyontz explained, they had attempted to prepare but failed.

"Earlier in the week, amid the avalanche of rumors, our bulldog associate producer Rich Gross had sought permission to use some of Swift's music," Zyontz writes. "Not a chance. Per the FOX music department, Swift’s record label and publishing company denied our request 'in conjunction with speculations on or about her private/personal/dating life.'" 

At that point, Zyontz writes, the director Rich Russo decided not to "take gratuitous live shots" of Taylor in Kelce's VIP box. Instead, he decided to focus on putting the cameras on her when she reacted to the action on the field.

"Her joyful expression after Kelce scored a touchdown was the image of the day, captured beautifully by our low end-zone cameraman Andy Mitchell," Zyontz writes.

Rumor has it that Taylor will be at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday to watch the Kelce and the Chiefs take on the Jets.

Meanwhile, someone who knows both Travis and Taylor approves of their possible romance. When Extra asked singer Kelsea Ballerini about it at the People's Choice Country Awards, she said, "I love Travis. We did SNL together. I love Taylor. We were close for many years. I want happiness for everyone, so ... vibe!”

*NSYNC fans, rejoice! New song, new JT movie have arrived

Cr. Netflix ©2023

It's a great day to be an *NSYNC fan. The group's long-awaited reunion single, "Better Place," has finally been released — and there's a new Justin Timberlake movie streaming on Netflix.

"Better Place" is from the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Trolls Band Together, which hits theaters November 17. In it, Timberlake's character, Branch, goes on a quest to reunite the boy band that he and his brothers used to be in. It's no wonder Justin decided to reunite his *NSYNC brothers for their first new recording in more than 20 years.

While each *NSYNC member gets a chance to shine, Timberlake carries the chorus of the upbeat pop track, singing, "Just let me take you to a better place / I'm gonna make you kiss the sky tonight / Yeah, if you let me show the way / I'm so excited to see you excited.”

As for the new JT movie that's now streaming, Reptile is a neo-noir crime thriller starring Benicio Del Toro and Alicia Silverstone. Justin plays Will, a real estate agent whose girlfriend/colleague is murdered. The two fought the previous night, giving Will a motive — but in this film, everyone seems to have one.

Reptile director Grant Singer, who's helmed music videos for The Weeknd and Ariana Grande, can't say enough about Justin's talents.

"He's very special in many ways, primarily because he's not just an actor. He's not just a musician, he's not just a singer. He's, like, one of the greatest living entertainers," Singer tells ABC Audio. "He's, like, the most phenomenal dancer and performer. He's like this very multifaceted ... multidimensional renaissance man."

"I've never seen Justin in this, in a role that's so vulnerable," Singer adds. "I thought he inhabited it so well. He brings such a nuance to it. It's such an incredible performance."

Dean Lewis releases new single and video, "Trust Me Mate"

Isaac Anthony

For his latest release, Dean Lewis turned to the same guy with whom he co-wrote two of his biggest hits: "How Do I Say Goodbye" and "Be Alright."

Dean and Jon Hume co-wrote both songs and have teamed up again for the new song "Trust Me Mate." It's the second track released from his upcoming third album, following his Julia Michaels collaboration "In a Perfect World."

"It was probably the most stressful song we’ve ever had to write," Dean says of the song. "It took us about five days to write it ... we just spent a lot of time perfecting it. But we’re both really proud of it, because similar to our other songs, it really means something to the both of us, and we think it will really resonate with others who are going through a hard time.”

The song is about wanting to help a friend who's descended into addiction. Dean sings, "Trust me, mate, you've got this/ You always were the strongest/ But I'm not gonna promisе that this won't hurt/ You were lying in the bathroom/ Wе almost thought we lost you ... I'm not giving up on you."

In the video, Dean finds himself in a series of life-threatening situations — he's in a burning room, he's drowning, he's about to walk into the path of a truck — but each time, he's "rescued" by seemingly anonymous people. At the end of the clip, he's struck by lightning on a hilltop, but a dozen people run up to help him.

Dean is currently out on the U.S. leg of his The Future Is Bright World Tour, which wraps up in Hawaii on November 4.

Music notes: Kelly Clarkson, Stephen Sanchez and more

Kelly Clarkson had to dash off the stage to deal with a wardrobe malfunction during a performance in Minnesota recently. She was about to start singing "Catch My Breath" when she began adjusting her lacy black dress. “Am I good? Wait, hold on! Should I fix it?” she's heard saying in fan-captured video. “I think my boob’s showing!” She then quickly ran offstage to adjust her dress before coming back out and finishing the performance.

Stephen Sanchez will debut Angel Face: The Live Visual Album on his YouTube channel October 3. The "Until I Found You" singer worked with Lenovo to create a visual representation of his new release, Angel Face, a concept album set in the late '50s and early '60s. In addition to a "truly cinematic" performance of the album's songs, fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at how it was created.

It sounds like Taylor Swift may be supporting Sophie Turner with more than just dinner dates. Page Six reports Taylor is letting Sophie stay in her NYC apartment with her two kids while Sophie and Joe Jonas work out their custody arrangements amid divorce proceedings.

Cher's romance with Alexander “AE” Edwards appears to be back on. Earlier this month the two were spotted leaving a restaurant in LA hand in hand, and on Wednesday, they attended the Balmain fashion show together in Paris looking very much like a couple. Cher, 77, and AE, 37, were first linked in November 2022 and had reportedly split in May.
