Halsey’s collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “Closer,” has achieved mounting success, but the radio exposure hasn’t guaranteed recognition. The singer stumbled upon the realization that not everyone wants to hear the track at least three times an hour after an Uber driver changed the song…while she was a passenger.

Selena Gomez was thought to be featured on a new song with The Chainsmokers, but the electronic duo is saying otherwise. The rumor began after The Chainsmokers liked a tweet regarding an upcoming track. A fan thought that Selena’s voice could be heard in the background and Selenators ran with the theory.

The Chainsmokers are making an effort to be friendlier. After a little bit of shade for Lady Gaga grew into a massive Twitter beef, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have taken a more light-hearted approach to how they talk to–and about–other pop stars. Case in point, the duo was asked what they think of Fifth Harmony in a Twitter Q&A on Sunday and only had good things to say. One good thing, to be exact.
When asked if they liked the girl group, the Chainsmokers said that, actually, they love them. As Fifth Harmony struggles through the latest round of breakup speculation, the Chainsmokers might be eyeing possible collaborations like the one they did with Halsey.
Fifth Harmony is already breaking out into new projects, and the Chainsmokers have already had a Twitter duet with Camila Cabello whose proven she’s willing to get outside of the box when it comes to collaborations as a solo artist.
Check out the Chainsmokers’ tweets below.

Bella Thorne hasn’t released new music since 2014, when her second full-length album, “Jersey,” dropped. Despite her musical hiatus, Bella is apparently planning on being at the American Music Awards this weekend. The actress revealed her plans to attend in a re-tweet of The Chainsmokers.
Quoting a tweet from the band, Bella hinted that she would be at the award ceremony too. That means Bella will probably be making a red carpet appearance with her new hair color. But The Chainsmokers aren’t the only act Bella will see if she does attend. Lady Gaga, Niall Horan, Ariana Grande and Fifth Harmony will all take the stage in between Gigi Hadid’s hosting duties.
Maybe it’ll even be enough to convince Bella to get back into music.
See what Bella had to say about attending the AMAs below.

The Chainsmoker’s collaboration with Halsey, “Closer,” sat pretty in first on Billboard’s Hot 100 for 12 weeks in a row. With a huge boost from the ever-so-popular #MannequinChallenge, Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” put an end to the song’s reign. Oddly, Halsey is relieved that the “absurd” 12-week stint is over. “I was starting to worry I was living in a simulation,” she tweeted out after seeing the news.
