If you enjoyed The Late Late Show skit featuring John Stamos and Julianne Moore channeling their inner soap opera stars while reciting Taylor Swift lyrics, you’ll enjoy this new episode of The Bold & The Lyrical.

James Corden convinced his guests on Tuesday night to participate in the Justin Bieber-inspired soap. Salma Hayek stars as a maneater juggling her multiple men– Ray Romano, Gary Oldham and Corden.

Watch all the drama unfold featuring The Biebs’ songs including “Baby,” “Boyfriend,” Love Yourself” and “Sorry” to name a few. My favorite moments were watching Salma recite “Sorry” and Ray ‘accidentally’ bring up a One Direction track. The horror!!!

Ever curious which, if any, One Direction member Zayn Malik still keeps in contact with. Well, wonder no more. The 23-year-old reveals all to NME magazine’s latest issue.

On Which 1D Member He Still Talks To

“I’m still probably the closest to Liam [Payne]. We talk on the phone. He congratulated me on my single. Which was nice. I congratulated him on his Brit Award. It was a good chat. We hadn’t met in a long time so we want to meet up.”

Not surprising that it’s Liam. They always seemed quite close. With regards to the other guys, well, that’s a whole different story. It’s pretty clear there are still some unresolved issues after his departure from the group. Read below his thoughts on that subject.

Just in time for the Grammys, Jimmy Kimmel staged another installment of his hilarious self-deprecating Mean Tweets segment. It never fails to provide a few laughs.

The special all-music edition featured the likes of Ed Sheeran, Demi Lovato, Rita Ora, Lionel Richie, Kelly Clarkson, One Direction and more reading their haters not-so-kind words. The one above featuring Meghan Trainor was one of my favorites. Check out the rest below.

Zayn Malik Debuts At Number One On Billboard Hot 100

It appears his decision to leave One Direction might’ve been a smart one after all. Zayn Malik’s first solo single “Pillowtalk” has debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

The slow jam is only the 25th song ever to achieve this feat. The 23-year-old is also the first performer from the UK to have his first song do this. Overall, he’s the third UK artist to have a single debut in pole position. Adele and Elton John being the others.

Believe or not, One Direction hasn’t accomplished this milestone. The closest the boy band ever got was with “Best Song Ever” which peaked at No. 2.

Check out the video for his sultry offering below if you haven’t already done so. Congrats to Malik.

One Direction gets all reminiscent for its latest music video, “History.” The group shares plenty of footage of themselves on the road throughout the years. Even departed member Zayn Malik appears in the clip. Sure, it’s only in archival footage but still, the fab fivesome are back together one last time.

“History” is the third single off the group’s LP, Made In The A.M. Given the nostalgic vibe of the visual, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the last official single from the group in a while. From their X Factor UK days to their meteoric rise, the music video serves as a perfect wrap-up of their journey together. Check it out below.

Hands down “Carpool Karoake” is my favorite late night segment on any network. All of James Corden’s passengers genuinely look like they’re having a great time. One Direction are no exception. The British boy band have a ball playing pranks, singing their hits and surprising fans while the Late Late Show host drives them around.

As you know, 1D is currently on an extended hiatus to rest and pursue individual projects. This segment filmed a month ago in Los Angeles might be the last time you see all four guys together for a long time. Soak it up while you can. Check out the fun clip below.

Both Justin Bieber and One Direction were in full promotional mode all last week for their respective new albums. After the dust settled, the Canadian singer beat out the boys from the UK. Purpose earned 649,000 equivalent album units (522,000 in pure album sales) during its first week. Meanwhile, 1D moved 459,000 units, 402,000 in pure album sales.

Not only his Purpose, the Bieb’s sixth No. 1 album, but it also represents his largest sales week ever. His previous best was Believe which sold 374,000 during its first week in 2012. Sadly though for Justin, he’ll only have a one-week reign. Adele is set to crush Billboard records when her numbers are tallied next week.

Speaking of records, Justin achieved a big one over on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Find out below.

Heading into the 43rd annual American Music Awards, The Weeknd and Taylor Swift led the pack with six nominations apiece. The “Hills” singer walked away with two awards while the “Blank Space” chanteuse snagged three statues. Other multiple winners of the night were One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Florida Georgia Line.

As with most music awards show, the telecast was all about the performances. Jennifer Lopez kicked the night off by performing a slowed-down version of her hit “Waiting For Tonight” before pulling an insane dance routine to a mashup featuring the year’s biggest hits. Girl slayed it and then some.

Other memorable performances were Demi Lovato joining Alanis Morissette on “You Oughta Know,” Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor making out to “Marvin Gaye,” Ariana Grande performing “Focus” without her signature high ponytail, Pentatonix with their Star Wars tribute and Nick Jonas and Justin Bieber each singing a medley of their hits. By far though, the emotional high point was Celine Dion’s tribute to Paris. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Check out all the performances below and share your thoughts on your favorite AMA moment.
