Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner will no longer feel like “Suckers” for paying fees on NYC condo

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagicLooks like new parents Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have decided to settle in Los Angeles for good: They're looking to unload their condo in New York City.

According to Dirt, the condo is on the market for just under $6 million.  The 2900-square-foot pad, which they paid $5.5 million for nearly three years ago, features three bedrooms and three bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, a massive terrace, chef's kitchen with all the bells and whistles and huge walk-in closets. 

Apparently, the couple simply doesn't use the place, so it's no wonder they're looking to divest themselves of a place that costs $120,000 per year in property taxes and nearly six grand a month in condo fees.

The couple and their baby daughter now live in Encino, California in a 15,000 square foot home with ten bedrooms and eleven bathrooms.  At just over $14 million, it was the second highest amount ever paid for a single-family residence in Encino. 

The highest amount? That would be $20 million, which is how much Joe's brother Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra paid for their mansion.

Lance Bass confirms Justin Timberlake welcomed “cute” new baby earlier this year

Rodin Eckenroth/Getty ImagesA while back, it was reported that Justin Timberlake and wife Jessica Biel had welcomed a second child, a sibling to their five-year-old son Silas.  However, the couple themselves never confirmed the baby's existence, let alone any details like whether or not it was a boy or a girl.  Good thing we've got JT's former bandmate Lance Bass around to spill the tea.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lance confirmed that yes, the couple did have a second child earlier this year.  What's more, Lance has seen pictures of the new arrival.

"The baby is cute of course, it's Justin and Jessica!"  Lance told ET.  As for the child's name, Lance laughed, "That's a good question…Justin would kill me!"

Based on previous reports, the baby was a boy, but we don't know for sure.  However, Lance boasted that everyone else in *NSYNC knew about little Timberlake before everyone else, and admitted that their group chat is now all about babies, including the newborn.

New Music Friday: OneRepublic, Halsey & MGK, JP Saxe, Sia and…Vin Diesel?

Palm Tree Records/Sony MusicA bunch of new singles have dropped for your listening pleasure this New Music Friday -- including one by the voice of Groot.  Here's a roundup.

OneRepublic is out with a new song called "Wild Life," the lead track from the soundtrack of the upcoming Disney+ movie, Clouds.  The movie, due October 16, is inspired by a true story.  It follows a teen with a rare bone cancer who decides to use the time that he has left to follow his musical dreams.  Clouds stars Fin Argus, Sabrina Carpenter, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Everett Scott and Neve Campbell.

Halsey unleashes her emo side on "Forget Me Too," a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly that's on his new album, Tickets to My Downfall

Halsey writes on Instagram, "The day has finally arrived that @machinegunkelly and I have a song together. I know it may seem impossible that we haven’t already done a song together, because we have been friends since the dawn of time. Believe me. It’s crazy even to us that it took so long to do it. Just seems like it’s a meant to be type of thing. And now it is. Here. And f****ing SICK."

Sia has released "Courage to Change," the second single from her upcoming movie, Music.  The YouTube description of the song reads, "The only thing that remains constant is change. Now more than ever we need to pull together to fight for humanity, social justice, equality & so much more. It's time for real change."

"If the World Was Ending" singer JP Saxe duetted on that song with his girlfriend Julia Michaels, but now he's singing with another female artist: British singer/songwriter Maisie Peters.  Their duet, "Maybe Don't," written in London prior to lockdown, is out now.

Vin Diesel -- yes, that Vin Diesel -- has released his first single, "Feel Like I Do." It was written and produced by Petey Martin, who'd previously worked with Kygo, and it's coming out on Kygo's label.  So what does the voice of Groot sound like when he tries to sing a romantic dance track?  Listen and find out.
