More than four years after the release of his last album, Ed Sheeran has announced that his long-awaited fourth album will be out at the end of October. He says that the new album, called Equals, is a really personal record and one that means a lot to him. His life changed greatly over the past few years and that is reflected over the course of the album.


Angelina Jolie made her Instagram debut over the weekend following the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. Within two hours of her joining she gained more than 1.8 million followers. She currently stands at more than 5 million followers. Her first post is a letter from an Afghan girl writing about the situation after the Taliban takeover. Many fans from across the globe praised Angelina.


At the start of this year Selena Gomez hinted she was planning on quitting music. She said she wanted to give her music career “one last try” before retiring. Now it appears she is taking back those comments in a new interview. She didn’t announce a new album or a new music project, but she admitted that she’ll ever really be able to quit. Her earlier comments came as she felt her music wasn’t taken seriously within the industry or by critics.
