She's been doin' bad things on her own for a while now!

If you've been trying keeping up with all this Fifth Harmony drama… then you're probably still just as confused as we are by all the conflicting reports.

Luckily, we're starting to piece together the evidence that led to Camila Cabello's exit from the girl group — and it looks like Lauren Jauregui, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Ally Brooke have been out of the loop for even longer than we originally thought!

In their first announcement, 5H made it seem as though they only learned of Camila's departure on Sunday when it went into effect. However, the I Know What You Did Last Summer singer made sure to point out they were actually informed a month earlier in November in her first official statement.

But now we're not so sure she wasn't actually being shady with the news…

That's because Billboard's in-depth look at their demise on Wednesday proves Camila has been planning her departure for "the better part of a year" — and she already has

Ariana Grande Is Already Teasing New Music On Snapchat Even Though Dangerous Woman JUST Came Out!

She must not be as into dangerous women as we thought!

Ariana Grande made headlines earlier this month when she admitted that taking part in Hairspray Live! was more fun than her illustrious career as a pop star.

However, despite her warning, we didn't expect the 23-year-old to full-on drop her current music in favor of her newfound musical musings — but that may just be exactly what she did Sunday night!

Arianators were quick to jump to conclusions over the weekend when Ariana teased a brand new song on her Snapchat… less than THREE MONTHS after dropping Dangerous Woman.

While Ari's third studio album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, we've only gotten two singles out of the set — the titular track as well as Into You — so it's a bit early to be making new music.

With that said, fans are just as curious as we are and have been assuming the unnamed song could actually be the single she reportedly recorded with Diplo; and could be featured on a Dangerous Woman re-release.

All we know for sure about the R&B/Pop crossover is that we sure are into it!

Ch-ch-check out Ariana's snapped snippet of the supposed single (below)!!!

On Friday, the Biebs took to Twitter to announce he's releasing a song this month, hinting that Ed Sheeran, pop producer Benny Blanco, and Diplo's music group Major Lazer all have a hand in the project!

He wrote:

Right off the bat, the upcoming release, Cold Water, seems like an instant summer smash, and here's why.

J.B. teamed up with Benny and the ginger songsmith to create his wildly popular single, Love Yourself. Plus, he worked with Diplo and Skrillex — under the alias Jack Ü — to make the mega-hit Where Are U Now.

Not to mention, Major Lazer's track Lean On with DJ Snake and was such a jam, and even cracked the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 last year.

Oh, and Diplo revealed that MØ's going to be on Cold Water as well! Ch-ch-check out his announcement (below)!

Diplo Calls Justin Bieber A 'Clown On A Pedestal' While Bashing EDM Culture — You Gotta Read This!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJustin BieberDiploShade

Diplo

Diplo is really telling it like it is!

From working with artists like Justin Bieber to being a part of EDM culture, the 37-year-old DJ spills it all in his latest feature in Billboard.

When it comes to collaborating with the impressionable 22-year-old Biebs, the producer remembered:

"Justin came to Vegas one night when I played Where Are U Now, He had just turned 21, and he was like, 'Yo, man, I want to thank you, because this is the first time I've ever had adults clap for me. This is like a big deal.' You think about that, and yeah, he was kind of like a clown on a pedestal. People just like picked on him."

We can't argue with you there, Justin is a bit of a clown! LOL!
