Renée Zellweger is an open book these days!
In an interview with the Advocate, Renée discussed her failed marriage to Kenny Chesney and why she annulled their 2005 brief marriage over "fraud", a charge which led many to suspect the country singer was gay.
Now Zellweger is FINALLY speaking out on the issue and and naturally we're all ears!
According to the actress, the scandal isn't something she conveniently "forgot" about… a claim which is just CRAZY considering the drama of the split still follows Chesney to this day! The scandal was a big deal back in 2005!
The beauty went on to dish:
"I forgot about that. It's a pretty big thing to forget, isn't it? That made me sad. It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences. Of course, there's the bigger-picture problem of why anyone had to make up a story at all."
Well we do agree the 47-year-old on that point. It's never okay to use someone's sexuality as an insult!
So, why didn't the star ever speak out on the issue if it made her feel so bad?
Country crossover is all the rage right now!!
The song, with audio released and available for download as of Friday, is part of Chesney's upcoming album Cosmic Hallelujah that will be available on October 28.
Featured on the track, Pink sounds great doing her thing, and couples really well with Chesney's southern twang — it sounds great!
Ch-ch-check it out (below)!!!
Summer is right around the corner, which means Good Morning America is about to heat up with all-star performances!
The ABC morning program has announced the lineup for its 2016 Summer Concert Series, which features 14 weeks of music's biggest artists performing their hits from SummerStage in New York City.
Kicking off the series on May 20 is Ariana Grande, who is set to perform songs from her upcoming album, Dangerous Woman, along with more of her No. 1 hits!
This is GMA's hottest lineup yet, so it looks like ABC is hoping for some scorching ratings before Michael Strahan officially joins the team in September.
Ch-ch-check out the full lineup and schedule (below) and catch the summer concert series Fridays on ABC!
Taylor Swift had one hell of a 2015!
With the mega success of her Grammy-winning album 1989, and her epically lucrative 1989 World Tour, the New Romantics songstress was the top earner of last year!
Swifty absolutely slayed the competition, earning a whopping $73.5 million largely thanks to her tour — which cashed in $61.7M for her 2015 haul.
But other factors like album sales and streaming sales helped — and even Ryan Adams' 1989 cover album helped make the pop star the top earner of publishing royalties!
While Swift's success isn't that surprising, the rest of the top ten earners may be…
Coming in at number 2 is

Kenny Chesney will forever be a country legend!
At the CMA Awards on Wednesday night, Kenny pulled off a flawless performance of Save It For A Rainy Day.
K.C. did a fine job of belting out the ironic feel-good anthem to a pleased crowd. It seemed like everyone knew the words to the well-played song!
Wow, we can't believe Chesney has been making music since 1994. So amazing!
Keep churning out those hits, Kenny!

We're not sure what we love more, his weird mix of celeb pals or his beach body?! HA.
Though it is a good thing the British cutie's reacquainting himself with the ocean since he's reprising his role from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. LOVES it!
Remember, the 38-year-old hasn't been involved with the POTC films since the third installment back in 2007! So you can forgive us if we're more than a little excited for Orlando and Johnny Depp to reunite once again. However, the film isn't slated to hit theaters until July 2017. Bummer!
But, for now, we'll have to just enjoy The Hobbit actor's festive beach days while we wait for the movie.
What do U think of Orlando's beach body?! Is it everything you though it would be??
