Welcome back to Billboard News. I’m Tetris Kelly, and it’s Wednesday May 24. We’ve got to talk about my girl Taylor because so many other people are. Taylor gets Ice Spice on a track and gets a thank you from Stevie Nicks. And Joe Jonas updates us on how he, Tay and the Swifties are doing. Taylor jumped on socials to announce a remix of the ‘Midnights’ track ‘Karma’ featuring Ice Spice, noting, “I’m a massive fan of this brilliant artist and after getting to know her I can confirm she is the one to watch.” The track is out tomorrow along with a Till Dawn edition of ‘Midnights’ featuring more Lana Del Rey and a new track.
Stevie Nicks 0:55
Thank you to Taylor Swift for doing this for me — and that is writing a song called ‘You’re On Your Own Kid.’

Stevie Nicks spoke at a concert on how Taylor’s ‘Midnights’ track ‘You’re On Your Own Kid’ helped her process the death of bandmate Christine McVie.
Stevie Nicks 1:17
When it was the two of us, the two of us were on our own, kids. We always were. And now I’m having to learn to be on my own kid by myself. So you helped me to do that.

In other Tay news, Joe Jonas is talking about his relationship with the superstar and her fans after formerly dating her. “I’m cool with Taylor,” Jonas told Dax Shepard’s ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast. “We’re cool.” He added of her very loyal fanbase: “I hope to think they liked me. No one f***s with the Swifties, you know,”. Oh, I know Joe. I am one, and you’re cool with us. Now let’s talk about some music competition shows. ‘The Voice’ and ‘Idol’ just ended and their next seasons could look pretty different.
Carson Daly 2:02
The winner of season 23 of the voice is Gina Miles!

Gina Miles may have won ‘The Voice’ for team Niall Horan and Iam Tongi may have won ‘American Idol,’ but it’s the judges’ panels that really have viewers talking.

Blake Shelton said goodbye to ‘The Voice’ after 23 seasons with a heartfelt tribute with his mentors over the years, but who’s coming back next season? Season 23 winning coach Niall Horan is returning and will be joined by returning judges John Legend and Blake’s wife Gwen Stefani. Replacing Blake for 24 is country music legend Reba McEntire.
Reba McEntire 2:48
To be able to come in and form my team. I’m so looking forward to it.

Over on ‘American Idol’ Katy Perry would love to shake things up on the judges panel because it comes with its challenges
Katy Perry 3:01
Probably being a woman and having a strong opinion.
Tetris Kelly 3:03
But she has a solution for the testosterone overload.
Katy Perry 3:06
This is an invitation from me, Katy Perry: Lizzo, I’m asking you to join the panel. I could really use some bold, honest hot takes.
Tetris Kelly 3:16
She told BuzzFeed she would love to share judging duties with Lizzo. Onto the story that has the Internet divided: BTS is used to breaking records, but this time it’s being challenged. J-Hope says “Hi” from the army and SUGA breaks touring records. Here’s today’s BTS news. After unleashing his solo album ‘Jack in the Box’ and a hot collab with J. Cole, BTS’ J-Hope has entered his mandatory military service in South Korea. He shared pics that the ARMY are dying over and a caption saying, “ARMYs I finished it well. I was able to complete training well because of the letters of support you sent me were very helpful. Will do my best for the rest of my military service and show you my best. I love you.” We love you too. And ARMY also showed a lot of love to SUGA. Under his Agust D persona, it’s being reported that he’s the first rapper to earn over $3 million in a single arena concert in US history. He joins the likes of Lizzo and Travis Scott, as Twitter continues its reoccurring debate on who it considers to be a rapper.

If I wasn’t a singer, I would be…

Have you ever done one of your own tattoos?
I actually have a really close tattooist, and you know I give her like a really bad picture of what I want and she just kind of like refines it you know? And so we kind of go back and forth and she’s like, What do you think about this angle? What do you think about the size? And then we just kind of put it together.

The most famous person that follows me on IG is…
I think Somi from the Black Label. I think

Tetris Kelly 5:27

Tetris Kelly 5:29
My current obsession is,
I think cars I’ve always been a car guy and I don’t think I ever grew out of it but I recently got into a car crash and so I need to get like a rental right so I got a Toyota Supra and that car’s been like really really fun so I think just going for drives has been my obsession.
Tetris Kelly 5:45

Before I let you go, Goyo is killing the Latin music game and if you don’t know her here’s five things about the artist.
¡Hola, mi gente! Soy Goyo La Pantera y estas son cinco cosas que no sabían de mí. Primera cosa que no sabías de mí: Bueno, amo las pastas, me encanta la comida Italiana. Nadie se espera eso de mí, pero me gusta todo lo italiano, hasta Mario Bros. Segunda cosa que no sabías de mí: Seguramente no sabían que ya no vivo en Colombia, que estoy viviendo en Miami. Tercera cosa que no saben de mí: Que pertenezco a un grupo que se llama ChocQuibTown, pero que estoy haciendo un álbum, construyendo un álbum, sola, con todo el mundo de La Pantera, pa’ ustedes, mi combo, con mucho amor. Cuarta cosa que no sabían de mí: Que antes de ser Goyo y estar en ChocQuibTown, estuve en un colectivo que se llama Sidestepper, dirigido por Richard Blair, un productor Inglés y que con ellos pude viajar por 25 países en el mundo, en muchos festivales, rapeando y cantando con ellos. Y quinta cosa que no sabían de mí, es que practiqué por mucho tiempo voleibol y estuve en el equipo del colegio, y todavía me encanta, así que en estos días nos vemos en una cancha en Miami Beach.
