Attention Beyhive: we’ve got more insights on Beyoncé‘s cryptic fifth disc. As her new single “Elastic Heart” caught fire, Sia tweeted fans that she penned her “other best song” for Bey’s new album and that it won’t be “Standing on the Sun.” The plot thickens. [Huffington Post]

Started from the bottom, now he’s number one. (We couldn’t resist!). Drake‘s third LP Nothing Was the Same moved 658,000 units in its first week, making it the year’s second-highest sales week after Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience. [Billboard]

Lorde has landed. The New Zealand singer, who is expected to join Drake in the top 10 next week, made her American television debut last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where she performed “Royals.” Despite the single’s success, the 16-year-old admits she’s not quite used to all the fame. “I love traveling so much and I wouldn’t have an opportunity to do it if it weren’t for music, which is amazing,” she shared in an earlier interview with Z100′s Elvis Duran. “But, at the same time I’m a loser so I feel like I shouldn’t be getting interviewed or whatever. I’m a creep.” We have to disagree. [Huffington Post]

Since we’re talking chart toppers, we present Timberlake’s second number-one album of the year. According to Billboard, part two of his 20/20 Experience will land at number one next week with an estimated 325,000 copies moved. If so, it will knock Drake’s NWTS down to second place with Lorde coming in at number three. [Billboard]

The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast will be toasting to the queen of talk show TV. Oprah Winfrey has been selected as the recipient of its Sherry Lansing Leadership Award due to being “a pioneer and a leader in her industry.” Maria Shriver will present Winfrey with the honor on December 11 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Ted 2 is happening. The film, starring Mark Wahlberg and his NSFW teddy, will hit theaters on June 26, 2015. Plan accordingly. [Vulture]

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: the world premiere of Britney Spears’ new video, “Work, B____.” [E! Online]
