Michael Bolton talks being single at 66: "I am a deep, helpless romantic" 

Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagicIf you’ve listened to his music, it’s probably no surprise that Michael Bolton considers himself a “helpless romantic.”  And despite being single at age 66, the singer tells U.K.'s The Mirror that he still believes in finding The One.

“I am a deep, helpless romantic,” he says. “I don’t think there is any better feeling than being in love. I believe in The Ultimate. Then I get disappointed. But am I being unreasonable in what The Ultimate is?”

His longest relationship was with actress Nicolette Sheridan, which lasted for 18 years on-and-off before ending in 2008. He still speaks fondly of his ex, which is something his friends have warned him might intimidate possible future dates.

“It was powerful,” he says of his relationship with Nicolette. “She’s gorgeous and funny but it ran its course. It was a constant attraction.”

Michael says he’s been on some blind dates, but hasn’t found his dream woman yet. He says he’s looking for someone who’s honest and has a sense of humor.

“I am good at being single, but there is room for a partner,” he says.

Michael was previously married to Maureen McGuire; they have three adult daughters together.

Last month, to mark his 50th anniversary as an entertainer, Michael released A Symphony of Hits. It features his greatest hits re-arranged in an symphonic style, accompanied by the West Australian Full Harmonic Orchestra.

My Chemical Romance's "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" returns to "Billboard" 200 for first time in over 10 years 

Reprise RecordsThree cheers are in order for My Chemical Romance.

The band's 2004 album Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge has re-entered the Billboard 200 for the first time in over a decade. It currently sits at number 191 on the chart after being absent from the tally since 2006.

While it's unclear what caused the album's return to the Billboard 200, there are a variety of MCR-adjacent things going on lately: frontman Gerard Way's The Umbrella Academy Netflix series, and guitarist Frank Iero's newly announced album Barriers, with his band the Future Violents.

Additionally, this Friday, March 22 marks the sixth anniversary of MCR announcing their breakup.

Upon its original release, Three Cheers peaked at number 28 on the Billboard 200, and stayed on the chart for nearly 80 weeks. It spawned the singles "Helena" and "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)."

Surrounded by criminals: B.I.G.'s estate sues snowboard company for using rapper's image

Larry Busacca/WireImageWhile the Notorious B.I.G. probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind when you think of snowboarding, the late rapper's estate is suing a snowboard company for using his image on its products.

According to the compliant filed in California and obtained by Billboard, the estate argues that the products, made by YES Snowboards, infringe on its copyrights, trademarks and right of publicity.  At issue is the use of a well-known photo of Biggie taken by hip-hop photographer Chi Modu in 1996 in front of New York's World Trade Center, as well as the word "Biggie."

The boards in question are part of a collection called "Greats X Chi," which features Modu's photos of other late hip hop legends, such as Tupac Shakur, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E.

The estate, managed by Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace and his widow Faith Evans, is asking YES Snowboards to stop selling the boards, and for compensation for the ones that were sold.

"Defendants intentionally and in bad faith gained access to and intentionally sold the Infringing Products to purposely profit from the Property Rights," says the claim, according to Billboard.

The boards appear to have been removed from the company's website.

Orlando Bloom gives up his bachelor pad after Katy Perry engagement

Daniele Venturelli/Daniele Venturelli/ Getty ImagesNow that Orlando Bloom is engaged to Katy Perry, he doesn’t need his bachelor pad anymore.

According to Variety, the actor has put his Beverly Hills, California home up for sale for an asking price of nearly $9 million.

The modern, minimalist property features four bedrooms and four bathrooms, a sunken sitting room, a zero-edge swimming pool and spa, and a fire pit. The master suite opens to a lounging and dining deck with skyline views.

It’s unclear if Katy and Orlando will buy a new home together, but they may not need to, since Katy already has plenty of properties to choose from.

Last month she sold two side-by-side homes at the top of Runyon Canyon for $12.7 million, but she still owns two multi-million-dollar homes in Beverly Hills and is involved in an ongoing bid to acquire a convent in Los Feliz that she plans to convert into a family compound.

Lionel Richie named global ambassador of The Prince’s Trust

ABC/Craig Sjodin

Lionel Richie, say "Hello" to Prince Charles.

The Prince of Wales announced Wednesday that Lionel has been named the first global ambassador of his charity, The Prince's Trust. The two men met up in Barbados, as part of Charles' tour of the Caribbean, to celebrate the partnership.

U.K.'s The Mirror reports that when Charles thanked Lionel for taking on the role, he made a joking reference to the American Idol judge's signature tune "Hello" -- much to Lionel's amusement.

"It must have been you I was looking for," said the heir to the throne.

"Oh, did you say that?" Lionel replied in mock disbelief. "He did say that."

Lionel will support the global expansion of the The Prince's Trust as it tackles issues like youth education and unemployment, supporting indigenous youth and helping to build sustainable communities.

X Ambassadors play with shadows in "BOOM" video 

ABC/Paula LoboX Ambassadors have debuted the video for their new single, "BOOM."

The clip starts off as a normal performance video, as it captures the "Renegades" rockers playing on a stage filled with light and shadow. Then, about halfway through, a lighting fixture drops on frontman Sam Harris' head, and the video takes a more surreal turn.

You can watch the "BOOM" video now on YouTube.

"Boom" follows X Ambassadors' 2018 songs "Joyful" and "Don't Stay," and is set to appear on the band's next album. The follow-up to 2015's VHS is set to arrive later this year.

Atlantic RecordsWhy Don’t We has teamed up with Macklemore for their new song, an ode to staying in called “I Don't Belong in This Club.”

The boy band and the rapper released the surprise collab Wednesday, along with a music video. In the clip, they poke fun at everything annoying about a night out: waiting on line, paying the cover charge and getting stuck with DJ playing the same songs on repeat.

When Macklemore rolls up, he transforms the dull club into a colorful ‘70s disco.

“Shoulda stayed on the sofa/Forgot I hate being social/And I miss my ex-girl/This Drake song makin’ me ‘motional/I’m feelin’ awkward as hell," Macklemore raps. "I only came here to dance/The DJ ain’t playin’ the cuts/And what do I do with my hands"

Why Don’t We kicks off the 8 Letters Tour tonight in Phoenix, AZ.
