R.Kelly says he met his match when he collaborated with Lady Gaga.
The R&B star, who worked with the pop star on the track "Do What U Want" from her latest album Artpop, has gushed about the singer after their raunchy performance at the American Music Awards this month. "I met my match when I met Lady Gaga. There's no doubt about it. She's very talented, she has a vision, she has a gift to the world. Then she has balls and she's not afraid to express herself. I don't think she does things to be controversial, she's just being herself," R.Kelly told The Sun newspaper.
Robin Thicke is filming a music video with Will Ferrell's Anchorman 2 character Ron Burgundy.
The "Blurred Lines" singer and the legendary star have already recorded a cover of Christopher Cross' 1980 hit "Ride Like The Wind" for the movie's soundtrack. Now sources say they want to make a video to promote the song but are struggling to find the time. "Everyone's on board for a proper music video, but Will's concerned about his schedule," an insider told the New York Post's Page Six.
The insider says he fears Ron Burgundy will be overexposed but would like Robin to join him on one of his upcoming TV appearances to promote the film.
Lily Allen wants to work with Miley Cyrus.
The 28-year-old star met Miley, 21, on a trip to Los Angeles after chatting with her on Twitter and is self-confessed fan.
Lily insists the satirical video for her comeback single "Hard Out Here" wasn't an attack against the "Wrecking Ball" hitmaker, despite it showing her surrounded by twerking scantily-clad dancers. "I'd never met her before so I couldn't say we are really great friends but I do really like Miley. She's funny, witty and clever, I love what she does. I think her and Lorde's album have had the most plays in my car this year. I never went on record saying the video was a direct pop at her - it wasn't. She's probably way too busy for someone like me but yeah, I'd welcome the opportunity to work with her," Lily, 28, the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Justin's fans were over the moon with the news, with one tweeting, "This is too much for my weak heart."
The title of the track - the seventh in Justin's series of reveals, which have mostly been mid-tempo tracks about love and heartbreak - is yet to be announced.
Britney Spears duets with her sister Jamie Lynn on her new album.

The 31-year-old star has revealed the tracklist of 14 songs which will be included on the album, which is set for release on December 3.

Lady Gaga is being sued over her 2009 song "Teeth."
Music producer and singer Teddy Riley - who was a member of 1990s hip-hop group Blackstreet - has filed a lawsuit against the 27-year-old pop star, claiming he hasn't received any of the payments he is owed after the song was included on her smash hit The Fame Monster EP. Teddy, 46, says he was promised 25 per cent of the writing fees for the song but hasn't been paid at all, and he is now seeking $500,000 as well as punitive damages, reports TMZ.
Gaga's Fame Monster EP, which was released after her debut album The Fame and before her second album Born This Way, is credited with establishing her as one of the most popular music artists today and it also features hit songs such as "Telephone," "Bad Romance" and "Alejandro."
In January, Teddy hit the headlines after he sued his own daughter, aspiring songwriter Taja Riley, after she allegedly claimed she co-wrote "Teeth." Taja landed a music publishing deal as a result of her supposed involvement, however, Teddy insists his daughter's claims about her "participation in the creation of the composition, authorship, and ownership [of 'Teeth'] are all false and untrue."
Adele has recorded a "filthy" rap song.
The "Someone Like You" singer is set to shock fans if she releases the track - a world away from her heart-wrenching ballads - which is full of expletives. "I know Adele really well and she was with me and [producer] Labrinth in the studio when we recorded 'Earthquake.' She also has this rap she recorded. It's really filthy," said rapper Tinie Tempah.
Tinie, 24, says the track was "an experiment" and he isn't sure if it will ever be released, especially as Adele has joked she'll start legal proceedings if he leaks it. Speaking in an interview on TV show Alan Carr: Chatty Man', he added, "She said if we ever play it to anyone she will sue us."
Adele, 25, took some time out after the global success of her second album 21 - having her first son, Angelo, with partner Simon Konecki in October 2012 - but she has recently been in the studio with songwriter Ryan Tedder, who claims her new material is sounding great. Ryan - who wrote "Rumor Has It" and Turning Tables with the star - said, "Adele sounds even better than before. I love where she's at, she's still my favorite artist in the world. I would press pause on my entire life if it meant I could go into the studio for a month straight with her."
Paul McCartney is being advised by his daughter to collaborate with Thom Yorke. The Beatles legend has been urged by Stella to work with the Radiohead frontman but he admits, despite being keen, he is afraid the 44-year-old singer will turn down his offer because his schedule is too hectic to fit him in.
"My daughter Stella is very keen. She's got a project, she keeps saying to me, 'Ring Thom and just go into the studio and just see what you come out with.' I'm a bit sort of paranoid to just ring him up. 'Hey Thom, it's Paul here. What do you fancy, what are you doing? Do you fancy writing something?' Just in case he says, 'Er, actually I'm busy.'"
Celine Dion wants to record a track with Eminem. The "Think Twice" singer would love to collaborate with the rapper - famed for his controversial and often violent lyrics - to give her more "street cred."
When asked if she'd collaborate with Eminem by AccessHollywood.com, she replied, "I'd love to." The vocalist - famed for her ballads - also talked about getting the seal of approval from her son Rene-Charles, 12, after he found out she'd worked with Sia Furler - who has penned hits including "Titanium" with David Guetta and "Diamonds" for Rihanna - on her new album. "When I told [Rene] I was getting ready to do another album and that there's a new song called 'Loved Me Back to Life' and it was Sia who actually wrote it for me, he said, 'No way.' He couldn't believe it because I'm not cool, and I'm not Rihanna," she explained.
Jennifer Lopez and Taylor Swift are to collaborate on a new track.
The 44-year-old singer and the "Everything Has Changed" hitmaker have reportedly locked down a plan to duet on Jennifer's upcoming eighth studio album - expected later this year - after they performed together during Taylor's final Red Tour show last month.
"Both of them are huge fans of each other and excited to work together!" a source said.
The blonde beauty recently shared behind-the-scenes footage from her gig at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, which shows Jennifer saying, "Thank you so much for allowing our family to come and be a part of your family. To create a beautiful moment, thank you, Taylor, for being so gracious and beautiful and loving me enough to have me be here tonight. I feel very blessed to be able to share the stage with you, and I just hope that everybody has the best show that they could ever have."
