Barry Manilow "Doing Well" After Emergency Oral Surgery

ABC/Lou RoccoIt looks like Barry Manilow made it through his emergency oral surgery just fine. A message posted Friday on the pop legend's official website says, "Barry is out of surgery and doing well. His Doctors report that the surgery was successful and they expect no further complications."

The note adds, with a touch of humor, that "Manilow has been instructed not to talk, sing or rap" for the next 48 hours. The message also points out that the 72-year-old singer "thanks everyone for their well wishes and concern."

As previously reported, Manilow experienced complications from a surgical procedure he underwent on Monday, and flew back to Los Angeles to have a follow-up operation after playing a sold-out show on Wednesday in Memphis.

Barry's health issue forced him to postpone two of his concerts this week, shows scheduled last night in Highland Heights, Kentucky, and tonight in Nashville. The concerts will be rescheduled soon, and those with tickets can hold on to them and redeem them on the new date.

The next show on Manilow's itinerary is scheduled for this Wednesday, February 17, in Houston. The current North American leg of his One Last Time -- One Last Tour is mapped out through a March 26 concert in Rockford, Illinois.

Bastille Teases Second Album

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagicBastille has shared a video teaser for their forthcoming sophomore album. In the clip, frontman Dan Smith speaks about the process behind recording the new album, which is simply referred to as "LP2."

"I've heard lots of bands talking about making a 'difficult' second album," says Smith. "But we never thought that far ahead. I guess, until recently, we haven't had much of a chance to stop and think about."

Bastille has spent the last couple of years touring extensively in support of their 2013 debut album, Bad Blood, which featured the band's huge breakthrough single, "Pompeii."

"We've been so lucky to be touring constantly over the last few years, and it's been a lot of fun,” Smith says in the teaser. "But it's meant that we've had to massively adapt the way that we make music. So this new album, it's been written and recorded on tour buses, in backstage rooms, and in hotels all over the place. The process of writing and making the songs hasn't changed much. It's just that this time around, we're doing way less of it in my bedroom."

"Here's hoping it's not completely terrible," he adds.

Lady Gaga and Her Sister Design Doll for Mattel

Photo by Andrew H. Walker/Getty ImagesAs part of Lady Gaga’s partnership with Mattel, the singer and her younger sister, Natali Germanotta, have designed the first celebrity doll for the toy company’s Monster High collection.

According to fashion site Refinery 29, the doll will be in the likeness of Lady Gaga and is set for release this fall. Mattel shared a sneak peek of the doll’s silhouette. Judging by the outline, the doll will feature a flowing high ponytail, flared pants and a sassy pose.

Natali, who serves as Gaga’s costume designer, tells Refinery the doll “represents showing your unique self and being the most vulnerable you.”

Mattel’s Monster High franchise aims to promote acceptance and individuality. Gaga, who’s appropriately known as Mother Monster to her fans, announced back in October that her Born This Way Foundation signed a three-year deal with Mattel to work towards empowering young people.

Monster High and the Born This Way Foundation also have just launched the #KindMonsters campaign. By participating in the campaign, people will be entered to win one of the first 100 dolls when they’re released.

Image Group LA/ABC WALK THE MOON has shared the video for their current single, "Work This Body." The clip, which you can watch now at EW.com, stars a young student who starts a food fight during a school talent show.

"'Work This Body' is a song about getting my a** in shape and standing up to my fears," frontman Nick Petricca tells Entertainment Weekly.

Atreyu Debuts "A Bitter Broken Memory" Video

Daniel Boczarski/RedfernsAteryu has premiered the video for their song "A Bitter Broke Memory." While the song itself doesn't have the most upbeat lyrics, the video, which includes footage from Atreyu's tour this part year in support of their album Long Live, is very celebratory.

"This video, essentially shows a bit of the journey that Long Live has had so far. From being in the studio, to playing club shows to playing in stadiums," clean vocalist and drummer Brandon Saller tells Billboard. "We wanted to give our fans a little view of what we've been doing for the last year and what this record has done for us."

Atreyu released Long Live last year. It was the band's first album since they went on hiatus following the release of 2009's Congregation of the Damned.

This spring, Atreyu will embark on a headlining tour in continued support of Long Live, starting March 4 in Bakersfield, California.

Adele Covers "Vogue": “I Like Myself More than Ever”

Annie Leibovitz/VOGUESay “hello” to Vogue's March cover girl: Adele. In the accompanying interview, the singer declares, “I like myself more than ever” -- and it shows. She evokes effortless confidence as she lounges in a beaded dress on the magazine's Annie Leibovitz-shot cover.

“I feel so comfortable in my own skin,” Adele tells the mag. “I really like how I look, I like who I am, I like everyone that I surround myself with. Obviously I have insecurities, but they don’t hold me back.”

Adele has been steadily making healthier choices, most of which began when she became pregnant with her now three-year-old son, Angelo. “The whole thing about me feeling good about myself comes down to Angelo," she says. "I can’t wait till I meet his best friend. I’ll make his room a shrine when he goes to university!”

She says she's given up smoking, has almost given up alcohol and knows what foods and drink to avoid to protect her throat. “I was trying to get some stamina for my tour, so I lost a bit of weight,” she says. “Now I fit into normal, off-the-shelf clothes -- which is a really big problem for me!”

Why is it a problem? Because now she has a shopping habit, Adele jokes.

Last month, Adele officially released her second single off 25, “When We Were Young.”  She calls it her favorite song on the album. After working with Xavier Dolan on the “Hello” video, she says she’d like to work with another movie director on the “When We Were Young” video -- preferably Todd Haynes.

“I loved Carol,” she says of the Haynes-directed, Oscar-nominated flick. “I loved the way it looked, and I loved the awkward silence in it -- I’d like to have some awkward silence in the music video.”

Friday, Adele plays a one-night only concert at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, ahead of her Grammy performance Monday. Shortly after, she embarks on the European leg of her world tour, starting February 29 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

“I’m only touring for the fans, to see the people that changed my life,” she tells Vogue. “There’s no need for me to tour. I’ll always be nervous, worrying whether I’m going to be good enough. And the adrenaline is so exhausting.”

Judging by her success so far, it's probably safe to say she has nothing to worry about.

The movie takes a raw, uncensored look at the lauded singer's turbulent life, her path to stardom and her tragic death from a heroin overdose at age 27. It's narrated by veteran indie-rock singer/songwriter Chan Marshall, a.k.a. Cat Power, who reads passages from Joplin's personal letters to family, lovers and friends throughout the film.

The documentary also includes interviews with Joplin's family members, friends and fellow music stars, as well as previously unseen footage and archival scenes from Janis' appearances such landmark events as the Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals.

Ciara Teases Possible V-Day Engagement to Russell Wilson?

Image Group LA/ABC

Ciara is opening up about the next step in her and Russell Wilson's relationship.

In an interview with E! News, Ciara stayed tight-lipped about her Valentine's Day plans with the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, laughing off questions about a possible engagement occurring on the romantic holiday.

"You have to ask the guy that," Ciara said when the idea of Wilson proposing to her on Valentine's Day was brought up. "Let me tell you, no pressure. One day at a time."

The "Goodies" singer may have stayed quiet about her Valentine's Day plans, but Ciara did reveal a number of reasons why she enamored with the football player.  "He's one of those guys that's super ambitious and always has something to do," Ciara said. "He doesn't like to sit still, I can tell you that. He's a go-getter, he's a hard worker."

Ciara and Wilson started dating in April 2015 and have chosen to practice abstinence, which Ciara admits can sometimes be a struggle.

"I'm not gonna lie," she recently told Cosmopolitan. "I'm human, so it is not easy, especially when I look at him and I think he is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen -- that I've ever laid my eyes on, to be honest. I'm like, 'Look the other way! Look the other way!'"

ABC/Image Group LAThis year on Valentine's Day, Kelsea Ballerini will be busy shooting the video for her next single from her debut album, The First Time. Even though there may not be time for hearts and flowers and romantic dates this year, the "Dibs" hitmaker says that's just fine, because at 22, she's already experienced the best February 14 of all.

Kanye West Defends Taylor Swift Lyric, Refuses to Censor Himself 

ABC/Randy Holmes

After world-premiering his new album The Life of Pablo at Madison Square Garden Thursday, Kanye West is now defending his controversial material about Taylor Swift, including one song in which he raps: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that b**** famous."

The rapper took to Twitter to explain the meaning behind his bold reference: "I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…," he tweeted, later adding, "I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."

Kanye adds that his choice of words is no big deal. "Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word N****," he writes.

He also says Taylor was in on the idea -- or at least part of it. "I’m not even gone take credit for the idea… it’s actually something Taylor came up with …," Kanye wrote, adding: "She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s name I will keep out of this and she told him. I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS."

A representative for Swift confirms Kanye contacted her, but says Swift cautioned Kanye about "releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message."  The rep also says Swift was never told about the contentious lyric, "I made that b**** famous."

Kanye's album is laced with his explicit lyrics and even makes reference to the sexual past of his wife Kim Kardashian, to whom he also refers using the B-word. Kanye explains that he refuses to censor himself: "I’m an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship."

West also says Kim was aware of the vulgar verses. "I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it," he wrote. "Stop trying to demonize real artist Stop trying to compromise art."  The rapper adds that he's standing up for real music. "That’s why music is so f****** watered down right now I miss that DMX feeling," he writes. " I miss that feeling so that’s what I want to help restore.  They want to control us with money and perception and mute the culture, but you can see at Madison Square Garden that you can stop us."

Dan+Shay Say Everyday Should Be Valentine's Day

Warner NashvilleWith their romantic new ballad, "From the Ground Up," written about the lifelong romances of their grandparents, it's not too surprising that Dan+Shay sound like they'd probably make good valentines. Shay in particular isn't shy to show his thoughtful side.

"For me, and this is the romantic in me. This is what I would say to a girl: 'Baby, everyday is Valentine's Day.''

But he admits he's skeptical of the commercialism of the holiday. "I think it's super-hyped. I get it, but I don't know...I'm a let's-hang-out-together, I'm a spend-some-time-with-ya kinda guy. I don't want them to spend any money on me."

"Sip a little wine with ya?" Dan adds, interjecting some humor.

"Yeah! Sip a lil wine wid ya!" Shay laughs. "I think it's more of, you know spending time with them. But I think everyday should be Valentine's Day. It should always be that sweet and awesome."

"That's a great stand-alone quote right there," Dan says, mocking his musical partner ever so slightly. "Shay Mooney:  'Everyday should be Valentine's Day!'"
