Epiphany MusicAlanis Morissette has released the latest track from her upcoming album, Pretty Little Forks in the Road.

The song, called “Reckoning,” tells a haunting tale of “predators and prey.”

Towards the end of the song she indicates the predators will get what’s coming to them, singing, “Brace, brace yourself/For this reckoning day/I was once, at a loss/Now I stand at the gate.”

After being delayed by COVID-19, Such Pretty Forks in the Road will be released on July 31.

Lady Gaga named as face of Valentino’s new fragrance

Stuart C. Wilson/Getty ImagesLady Gaga is enjoying the sweet smell of success.

Women’s Wear Daily reports the singer has been tapped as the face of Valentino’s new perfume, Voce Viva.

The fragrance, described as being non-gender specific, will debut in September. Voce Viva translates, fittingly for Gaga, into Living Voice.

“Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure heart,” the fashion house’s creative director, Pierpaolo Piccioli, says in a statement to WWD. “Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level.”

Garance Delaye, Valentino Beauty global brand president, tells WWD Gaga was chosen for the campaign not only because of the fragrance's name, but because she embodies the values of Valentino -- inclusivity and individuality.

Gaga's ads will debut starting in September.

Katy Perry reacts to rumor she’s related to Taylor Swift: “Well, we fight like cousins”

Kevin Mazur/WireImageKaty Perry and Taylor Swift were rivals once, but now they might be related?

Fans have been floating a rumor that Katy and Taylor are actually distant cousins, using apparent family tree data they’ve collected from MyHeritiage.com.

During her appearance on Capital FM’s Capital Breakfast on Friday, Katy was informed of the news that she and Taylor could be ninth cousins.

"Well, we fight like cousins," she joked.

Katy added, "Wow, I'm going to have to ask her if this is true or if we should, like, get blood tests together or something.”

The two officially buried the hatchet last year after a years-spanning feud. Katy appeared as the burger to Taylor's fries in Taylor's video for "You Need to Calm Down."

Katy on Friday released her new single, “Smile,” the title track off her upcoming album.
