Are you a fan of The Little Mermaid? What about Hamilton? If you answered yes to both questions, then this is for you! Lin-Manuel Miranda is collaborating with Alan Menken (Disney fans know this man, for sure) to write new songs for the The Little Mermaid live action film. OMG! We can't wait. (via Playbill)

Have you seen the brand new music video from Banks? Watch the trippy video below. Her album drops this September. (via Nylon)

Taylor Swift has been off the radar ever since Kim Kardashian's big expose about Kanye West's "Famous" lyrics. But here's some good news! Our girl Tay is donating $1M to the Louisiana flood relief after torrential rain caused flooding in the state. She shares in a statement, ""We began The 1989 World Tour in Louisiana, and the wonderful fans there made us feel completely at home. The fact that so many people in Louisiana have been forced out of their own homes this week is heartbreaking." You go, Tay! (via Yahoo)
