BMLGCarly Pearce‘s new single, “Closer to You,” is coming this Friday.

The Kentucky native’s been teasing the follow-up to her hit, “Hide the Wine,” on social media.

“There’s a diamond sky that’s waiting for us just outside of town/With the moon hanging for me and you baby,” Carly sings in an a capella clip as she puts on mascara. “We can cut the headlights out when there ain’t no else around/Kill the space in between, slide across that leather seat.”

“Closer to You” is the first new music from Carly since her debut album, Every Little Thing, which takes its name from her chart-topping debut single.

Jennifer Lopez talks surviving the “tabloid era” and how she looks so young

ABC/Paula Lobo(LOS ANGELES) — In a new cover story for InStyle, Jennifer Lopez says the “tabloid era” of the early 2000s was worse than today’s social media-obsessed celebrity culture.

“It was just crazy. Now at least I can show you who I am a little bit,” she says. “Back then you just believed anything you read on the cover of a tabloid. Many times it wasn’t true, or it was like a third of the truth.”

Her high-profile relationships of that time — notably with record mogul Sean Combs and actor/director Ben Affleck — were under much more scrutiny than her current relationship with baseball star Alex Rodriguez. Lopez says she believes social media has helped keep her and A-Rod’s romance off of TMZ.

“Now people get to see that this guy they thought was this hard-nosed athlete is, like, a goofy dad who loves his kids and celebrates his girlfriend,” she says.

Plus, they’re older and wiser now. “When we met, we’d both already done a lot of work on ourselves,” Lopez says.

J-Lo also makes it a point to work on her health and fitness, which is why she’s able to pose half-naked in just a green Valentino cape for In Style at age 49. She says she avoids caffeine and alcohol and gets a lot of sleep.

“I’ve taken care of myself, and now it shows,” she says.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A suspect has been arrested in connection with the gruesome murder of a 70-year-old woman living in Manhattan’s upper west side.

Anya Johnston, 24, was charged with murder and burglary in the death of Susan Trott, police said.

During a burglary of Trott’s apartment, there was a confrontation leading to the victim’s death, according to the NYPD.

On Wednesday, police said they were waiting to question another woman who lived in Trott’s building. But detectives were unable to question that woman because she was hospitalized for a psychiatric evaluation.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

Hawaii's Supreme Court approves controversial Thirty-Meter Telescope despite protests from natives

iStock/Thinkstock(HONOLULU) — Hawaii’s Supreme Court made a decision on a long-debated issue by voting in favor of continuing the construction of a large telescope on the Mauna Kea volcano, a mountain that’s considered sacred to native Hawaiians.

The court voted on Tuesday in favor of the state’s Board of Land and Natural Resources’ decision in 2017 to grant a construction permit to build the Thirty-Meter Telescope, also known as TMT.

“We’re pleased the court carefully considered and weighed all the varied and passionate testimony about TMT,” Hawaiian Governor David Ige said in a statement on Tuesday. “We believe this decision is fair and right and will continue to keep Hawai‘i at the forefront of astronomy.”

The decision follows years of litigation in courts and protests from Native Hawaiians, many of whom fear that the impending project will desecrate a spiritual space, according to ABC affiliate KITV.

In response to the persistent opposition, which is only expected to intensify with the court’s decision, TMT spokesperson Scott Ishikawa stressed that the company would do its best to be good to the mountain.

“I think everybody understands now that it is a special place — that everyone has to take their own responsibility of taking care of her,” Ishikawa said.

David Lassner, president of the University of Hawaii, which has backed the construction of TMT, added in the governor’s statement: “We will ensure that this project is accomplished appropriately and with the deepest respect for the awesomeness of Mauna Kea.”

Now that construction on TMT has been approved, the benchmark $1.4 billion dollar project is one step closer to its projected 2029 completion.
