The Internet has been swirling with suspicion over George Michael's sudden death.

In the wake of his Christmas Day passing, the former Wham! frontman's autopsy results were "inconclusive," which led many to ponder if the 53-year-old's death was due to health problems, an overdose, or something else all together.

Now, new revelations from Michael's former manager have made the music icon's death all the more puzzling.

In a new issue of Billboard, Rob Kahane — who managed the pop icon at the height of his fame — opened up about a conversation he had with Michael weeks before his passing.

The Careless Whisper performer had recently finished an 18-month stint in a Swiss rehab facility when his Kahane reached out to him in early December — and the singer seemed to be in a good place.

The former manager recalled:

Camila Cabello's 2017 Solo Album Has Been In The Works For MONTHS — Even Though Fifth Harmony Only JUST Learned She Was Leaving!

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

no title

The Weeknd has learned to embrace his inner star(boy).

The hitmaker recently opened up to Billboard in a rare interview, revealing that he wasn't always confidant in his abilities to perform for a crowd.

Crazy, right?!

But it turns out that the 26-year-old seriously struggled with stage fright before he made it big, admitting:

"I used to be very nervous, especially about performing on TV. It's usually just nerves when ­somebody sounds bad. People who become famous for signing are usually pretty good at ­singing."

It's so crazy to think the popular performer ever doubted himself!

In fact, the songsmith confessed that he's actually his biggest critic, adding:

Bette Midler 'Can't Understand' Why Hocus Pocus Sequel Isn't Happening When The Cast Is Totally Down! Find Out Where They All Are Now!

no title

Over the past two decades, Hocus Pocus has become a Halloween classic for young and old — and no one is more aware of the film's long-lasting magic than Winifred Sanderson herself, Bette Midler.

Like the rest of us, the actress is still spellbound over the 1993 horror comedy, and doesn't quite understand why a sequel still hasn't happened! Speaking to Billboard, she said:

"You don't get to see women doing slapstick too much, and in the movie you can see that we're having a blast. For the life of me, I can't understand why there's not a sequel. All the shackles were off, as Donald Trump likes to say, and we were allowed to be as wild as we wanted to be. It was a perfect storm of fun."

The 70-year-old has made it clear she and costars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy would be down to reprise their witchy roles, but revealed the decision to make a sequel is ultimately up to Disney.

So apparently, we just have to keep on waiting for some virgin executive to light that Black Flame candle and bring our fave sisters back to life!

Until then, find out what the entire Hocus Pocus cast has been up to since the 1993 film hit theaters!
