  • Director Brett Ratner Addresses Mariah Carey Dating Rumor

    Mark Cant/FoxLast month, Mariah Carey's rep denied reports of any romantic involvement between the singer and Brett Ratner, and now the director is speaking up to put the whispers to rest.

    "We're great friends," Ratner tells E! News. "I'm directing her video. I've been friends with her for 20 years."

    Although Carey was spotted with Ratner in St. Barts during a joint birthday celebration, he found the rumor to be humorous. "It makes me laugh actually," he says. "It cracks me up. We're great friends. She's awesome and she's amazing."

    Carey enlisted her friend to film the video for her new single, "Infinity," which will premiere April 27.

  • Lady Gaga Spins in Style at SoulCycle Chicago Charity Event

    Jeffrey R. Staab/CBSLady Gaga helped pedal her SoulCycle Chicago fundraiser to success -- and she did it all in signature Gaga style. The singer showed up to Tuesday’s Born This Way Foundation charity event sporting some Dia de los Muertos-inspired face makeup, a black SoulCycle tank top with a skull on it, and bedazzled cycling shoes.

    Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, rode bikes alongside guests, who donated $1,000 per bike for the privilege. A couple of charitable participants even forked over $2,500 for the bikes right next to Gaga. A spokesperson for the fundraiser told the Chicago Tribune that the benefit raised over $50,000 for Gaga’s charity, which focuses on youth mental health and well-being.

    Following the event, the pop star posted a photo with her mom Cynthia on Instagram, touting the benefit’s success. “Soulcycle ride for The Born This Way foundation was a hit today in Chicago!” Gaga wrote. “Thank u to everyone who participated in raising money and awareness for a cause so close to my heart.”

    Gaga’s fiancé, Chicago Fire actor Taylor Kinney, wasn't spotted at the event, but Chicago P.D. star Sophia Bush was there.

  • Burger Chain Posts, then Deletes, Nasty Tweet About Madonna

    Mert & MarcusDuring her recent promotional blitz for her new album Rebel Heart, Madonna has spoken a lot about ageism and her frustration with it.  So it's no wonder fans are up in arms about what Umami Burger, a fast food chain, said about her in a very nasty tweet.

    The tweet's since been deleted, reports Billboard, but of course, a screenshot's been captured.  The burger chain apparently shared a photo of a poster from its Costa Mesa, California location.  The caption read, "Heyyy @Drake, our Costa Mesa location has a solution," while the poster itself featured a head shot of the rapper and one of Madonna, with the slogan "Because nothing gets the taste of old lady out like Umami," and the hashtag "#bettathanmouthwash."

    The poster is a reference to Madonna and Drake's kiss at Coachella, which was very long, very passionate and, according to Drake, very unexpected.  In response to the subsequent unkind online comments about how Drake looked stunned after the kiss, he later wrote on Instagram, "Don't misinterpret my shock!! I got to make out with the queen Madonna and I feel 100 about that forever. Thank you @madonna."

    According to Billboard, Umami Burger was accused of being "ageist" and "cruel" for that tweet, which likely led to its deletion.  So far, there's been no response from Madonna.

  • Melissa Etheridge Says Her Busy Summer Tour Schedule "Covers the Whole Spectrum"

    ABC/Lou RoccoMelissa Etheridge has a busy summer planned. The singer just confirmed dates for her solo U.S. tour, in addition to her co-headlining dates with Blondie. She tells USA Today she’s covering “the whole spectrum.”

    "It's kind of a mixed-up tour," she says. "I love stretching myself and doing the solo gigs. It’s a lot of fun. And then, in July, we have the gigs with Blondie -- and one with Blondie and Joan Jett. Then I have some gigs on my own with the band and some more solo gigs. So it covers the whole spectrum this summer."

    Melissa’s first set of solo dates kicks off June 10 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and runs through June 28 in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Then she joins Blondie for ten dates in July. Joan Jett, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Saturday, will join the two acts for a July 20 show in Airways Heights, Washington.

    "I remember 1980, when [Jett's first solo] album came out, I was like, 'Oh, OK, there's rock and roll,’” Melissa tells USA Today. “There's a woman who's really playing rock and roll. That's it, right there."

    After wrapping her co-headlining dates, Melissa will head back on the road for even more U.S. shows in August, finally concluding on August 30 in Hyannis, Massachusetts.

    On June 9, the day before her U.S. tour begins, she’ll release a live concert DVD, A Little Bit of Me: Live in L.A., shot at her December 2014 concert at Los Angeles' Orpheum Theater.
