Selena Gomez releases Rare 5 years after sophomore solo album

It's crazy to think 4 years have went by without a new album from one of the industry's most well-known faces. Last night, Gomez held a release party in Los Angeles giving the intimate details behind her new album, Rare, and participated in an exclusive Q&A with JoJo Wright.

“I’ve obviously gone through some stuff,” Gomez told host JoJo Wright while reflecting on the time between albums. “… And throughout the years, this is what’s kind of gotten me through the past few years.”

Lose You to Love Me, was released as the lead single on Oct. 23, 2019, and topped the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Gomez's first number-one single in the US, followed by Look at Her Now was released as the second single the following day.

Hey now, Hey now; Dreams are not made of this

'Lizzie McGuire' fans may have to wait a little while longer for the revival. After filming two episodes of the Disney+ reboot series, the original series creator Terri Minsky exited her post as show-runner, Variety reported on Thursday. A new show runner has not yet been named.

“Fans have a sentimental attachment to Lizzie McGuire and high expectations for a new series,” a Disney spokesperson said in a statement to PEOPLE.

“After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the series,” said the Disney spokesperson.

The Disney+ revival is slated to revolve around Lizzie McGuire as a 30-year-old millennial navigating life in New York City.

'Bachelor' confident his season won't be spoiled

Everyone's favorite man Peter Weber believes his season will go unspoiled. The 28-year-old pilot has proudly declared that he doesn't think anyone will be able to guess the ending to his 'Bachelor' season including many infamous bloggers known for their accuracy.

'Bachelor' host Chris Harrison had a similar attitude about Weber's declaration.

"First of all, he's new at this, so you can't make a claim like that," he quipped. "But I know what he's actually talking about, which is, it's a wild finish. It is a season that got turned on its head and is an emotional, dramatic finish."

The show hinted at the "wild finish" Harrison promised in a flash-forward at the top of Weber's season premiere on Monday. The host is seen warning Weber about something he should know.

"There's something I just found out, all of us just found out. I'm not sure how all of this ends, so I just wanted to give you a heads up," the host tells Weber, who was about to hand out his final rose.

'The Bachelor' airs Mondays at 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
