Charlie Puth Has Over 1000 Voice Memos on His Phone

Charlie Puth is about to drop a new album called Voice Notes, an off-shoot name of the phone app.

The “Attention” singer and musician recently opened up about how the title came about and just how many notes he has stored in his phone.

“I’ve been obsessed with recording my voice,” Charlie admits to USA Today, about how the idea for the album title came to him.

He continues, “I’m not very good at writing actual music notes down and it’s very important that I capture the inspiration as much as possible, so I don’t forget it.”

Charlie adds, “When I listen to it later, I’m just instantly brought back to that inspirational moment of the day.”

He admits that he probably has more notes than one should.

“I have probably thousands of ideas (on voice memos),” Charlie laughs. “They’re all named interesting things, so they’ll get my attention if I ever scroll through them.”

Voice Notes will be out this fall.

Charli XCX's New Music Video for 'Boys' Features Joe Jonas Eating Pancakes

Charli XCX's New Music Video for 'Boys' Features Joe Jonas Eating Pancakes

A few months ago, Charli XCX collaborated with Rita Ora on a catchy song called “Girls,” and today she dropped her first single since March, “Boys” — and it features a whole host of celebrity men.

The video opens on Joe Jonas pouring syrup on a stack of pancakes, which is a visual that we won’t soon forget. The video also features Cameron Dallas, Charlie Puth, Tristan Evans and James McVey from The Vamps, and so many more.

The video is poppy and fun. Its use of pastel pinks and the “boys” in the video having pillow fights and posing with teddy bears help to subvert gender norms and call attention to how “girls” are usually portrayed in videos.

Watch the star-studded video below (and spy as many celebs as you can!)

Bella Thorne Explains the Tyler Posey & Charlie Puth Cheating Drama - Listen Here!

Remember when Bella Thorne was accused of cheating on Tyler Posey with Charlie Puth? Or was it the other way around?

Either way, the 19-year-old singer/actress explains how all the drama and rumors went down in a new interview.

“Honestly, Ty and I stopped dating and that was really difficult for me. It was definitely one of the hardest breakups I’ve been through,” Bella said on The Jenny McCarthy Show. “Basically, Ty and I stopped dating and Charlie had been tweeting about me for a while. He was trying to reach out to me. I had hung out with him twice. We went to the movies. He was cool. I was like, ‘Wow you’re really talented. Holy sh-t. You’re f-cking great, dude.’ And then he invited me to Jingle Ball to watch him perform.”

“Everything just got way blown out of proportion. We weren’t even kissing in that photo. That photo makes it look like we’re about to kiss and we’re straight-up not about to kiss,” she explained. “I was a little bit butt-hurt in that sense. That it got out like that. Obviously, I had to text, call Ty. And Ty wrote me like, ‘It’s all good.’ He actually came over my house later when I had come back into town…we were chill. I didn’t think it was going to be a problem. Because I knew personally that me and Ty were cool.”

“And Charlie saw an old news article and he didn’t look at the date,” Bella continued, referring his Twitter rant. “And the date is old and it’s about me and Ty…in Charlie‘s defense, when he read it, it sounded like it was about me and Ty still being together. So he didn’t even text me or talk to me about it…I kept calling him. Wouldn’t answer my calls. Then he just starts texting me…He should have just called me, Charlie.”

It sounds like everything is good now. Listen to her interview below.
