Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner celebrated their engagement with a star-studded party on Saturday night in New York City. The pair rented out a local restaurant for a dinner followed by an afterparty of sorts with dancing, champagne and sparklers.

Tom Petty, the classic rock sensation with a professional career that spanned close to 50 years, passed away on Monday. Reports indicate that Tom passed at UCLA’s Santa Monica hospital after being brought in due to cardiac arrest. He was with friends and family.
The death has left many musicians mourning in the wake of his passing. Among them are Niall Horan, whose own singer-songwriter style owes a lot to predecessors like Tom. American stars were just as sad to hear of his passing.
Joe Jonas is bringing the rest of DNCE to Los Angeles for an exciting new gig. The band is headed to a grand re-opening for the Westfield Century City mall on Tuesday, which has been going through a $1 billion re-development project. DNCE will be joined by Fitz and the Tantrums and two other “surprise acts.”
DNCE is going back to school in a sketch from Funny or Die. The band teamed up with comedian Jimmy Tatro for a hysterical video about what it would be like to have to share a college dorm room with Joe Jonas, Cole Whittle, JinJoo Lee and Jack Lawless. The group once again turned to its biggest hit for a literal garbage joke in the short film, but Joe also took the chance to fake some sentimentality.
DNCE landed the September cover of Hong Kong’s #legend magazine. The quirky bandmates discussed everything from inspirations and influences—mainly Prince and other heroes who aren’t so much musicians, but rather their own “world for an hour,” according to Cole Whittle—to the power of technology and who they’ve set their eyes on for next year’s dream collaboration.
While DNCE was able to work with Nicki Minaj this year on “Kissing Strangers,” a few different artists could be in the works for the band’s next collaboration.
“Oh, man, how can we top this year with Nicki Minaj?” Jack pondered. “Maybe Paul McCartney or Jeff Lynne?”
Jack, Cole, Joe Jonas and JinJoo Lee also spent a lot of time gushing over a few K-pop artists. So if they can’t snag Paul or Jeff, they might have a solid alternative in store.

The 2017 MTV Music Video Awards is coming on Sunday evening. The annual awards show is infamous for its bold red carpet style. As stars prepare to descend on the event, it’s worth wondering who might try to make a bold fashion statement at the notoriously edgy photo op.
Miley Cyrus has done a hardcore rebranding since her 2015 hosting gig, but she’s been letting the good girl veneer slip a little again. Miley’s set to perform at the show, so the red carpet will be one of a couple chances she might get to make a fashion statement.
