  • Miranda Lambert Says There's "Something for Everybody" on Her New Album, "Platinum"

    Sony Music NashvilleMiranda Lambert still has plenty of "sassy" moments on her upcoming album, Platinum, but there are plenty of vulnerable moments. On "Bathroom Sink," Miranda sings about dealing with body image issues, and "Priscilla" finds her addressing the challenges of having a famous husband, Blake Shelton.

    "I always try to make my records be about where I am right now," Miranda says. "I'm 30 years old. I'm happily married, but I still have problems good and bad. I face everyday life as a 30-year-old girl. So, I wrote a lot about that."

    Some other tracks, like the title cut and "Little Red Wagon," show off Miranda's lighter side.

    She says, "There's some humor. I think that comes from my husband. You know, he really has helped me find my sense of humor. Clearly, he has a good one."

    Miranda never apologizes for writing from a female point of view, but she thinks men will enjoy listening to Platinum, too.

    Says Miranda, "I feel like there's something for everybody on this record. It's very heartfelt. It's got some deep stuff and some stuff that is relatable for everybody, hopefully."

    The lead single from Platinum, "Automatic," is already a top 10 hit. Look for the full-length album in stores June 3.

  • Beyoncé Tops "Time" Magazine’s 2014 '100 Most Influential People’ List

    Steve Granitz/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Since hitting the world stage as a member of Destiny’s Child, music superstar Beyoncé  Knowles has shattered album records, won Grammys, secretly recorded and released a surprise album on iTunes, married a fellow music superstar -- Jay Z -- and become a mother, to Blue Ivy.

    All of that and more has landed the 32-year-old singer atop the Time 100, Time magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

    The tribute to Beyonce inside the magazine is written by Sheryl Sandberg, a female force herself in the tech industry whose book Lean In encourages woman to take charge of their careers and lives.

    “Beyoncé has insisted that girls ‘run the world’ and declared, ‘I’m not bossy, I’m the boss,’” Sandberg writes.

    Beyoncé topped other entertainment stars like Pharrell Williams, Seth Meyers and Kerry Washington in reaching Time cover status, as well as influential political, business and cultural leaders like Hillary Clinton, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.

    Beyoncé even topped Pope Francis, who is featured inside the magazine in a piece written by President Barack Obama.

    Clinton stands out for both making the Time 100 list as well as writing about another honoree on the list, Secretary of State John Kerry.

    Other Time 100 honorees, and the luminaries writing about them, include:

    • Miley Cyrus by Dolly Parton
    • Rand Paul by Mitch McConnell
    • Serena Williams by Dwayne Wade
    • Vladimir Putin by Madeleine Albright
    • Robert Redford by Harvey Weinstein
    • Eric Holder by John Lewis
    • Alice Waters by Ruth Reichl
    • Charlie Rose by Michael Bloomberg

    The issue of Time hits newsstands Friday.
