If you're ever wondering who holds the most industry power these days, it's epic songwriters---notably Sia Furler!
The songstress has rarely spoken up about her work, until now---and she's ready to dish unheard of details about some of today's biggest hits!
Take Beyoncé's powerful tune Pretty Hurts, for instance.
Sia revealed that she emailed Katy the track immediately, but never heard back---causing her to forward the song to RiRi's management, who never paid the rights fee...
After that, Yoncé stepped in to close the deal!
And when Miz Perry heard the track finished for the first time, she was pissed!
Sia said the Roar singer texted her:
"I'm pretty hurt you never sent me this song."
To which Sia responded:
"Check your email."
Kitty Purry's momma drama didn't even end there!
The songwriter also confessed that Katy was the one who suggested David Guetta keep her voice on the track Titanium---even though the DJ told Sia to write the song for Alicia Keys or Mary J. Blige's voice!
"I had just come off Firework and didn't want to repeat myself. I have to balance out my anthems, or else I’ll just be a motivational speaker. I was like, 'I think you’re crazy not to just keep Sia.'"
Sia was surprisingly upset, admitting:
"I was really upset about it, because electronic dance music is not my kind of music. Of course, it turned out to help my career as a songwriter."
If this is just a sampling of what Sia knows, we'd love to Q&A the shizz out of her!
Music drama aside, thank goodness everything is coming up roses for this budding talent!

The prison goodness that is Orange Is The New Black is almost back on our TV screens (okay, mostly computer screens thanks to Netflix)---and we know fans couldn't be more excited to binge watch the shiz out of it!
Red, Crazy Eyes, Piper, and Alex are all gracing the cover of this week's EW, in preparation for an epic season premiere June 6th.
In the mag, OITNB's creator Jenji Kohan revealed key details about the episodes to come:
"We had a theme for season 2. A little darker, a little more fractured. We wanted to explore the groups one at a time. It was getting a little summer-campy, and we wanted to address the realities that this is prison."
Not only will they be slowly releasing more insight into future eps, but they'll be teasing us with fabulous unseen clips...
And the first one has arrived for you're viewing pleasure!
Eek! This is almost as exhilarating as Daya and Officer Bennett's luscious sex scenes!
Ch-ch-check out Piper seriously tripped out in solitary confinement (below)!

Shaq has been making nets work for decades on the basketball court, but now he's literally networking!
The rapper, TV host, Kazaam star, and soon-to-be NBA Hall Of Famer has his colossal hands in a lot of different cookie jars, but you wouldn'nt know it by glancing at his low rent LinkedIn profile!
First, bahahahah, Shaquille O'Neal has a LinkedIn profile? Yup, sources confirm that it's actually his! AMAZEBALLZ!!
Second, holy ravioli, it's sparse!
Ch-ch-check it out for yourself...AFTER THE JUMP!!!
President of a lot of different companies? Ha!
Other than his educational background, the big baller didn't reveal too many secrets. He did add this though:
"I'm working on a lot of different ventures. My best asset is that I am proven to lead teams to championships. I mean multiple championships."
Well, there you have it - a proven leader!
Who wouldn't want the Shaq Attack running their corporation? LOLz!!
"I am longing for your poison like a cancer for its prey," sings Lykke Li at the very top of Gunshot. And with those 12 words we were hooked!
We are so happy for the return of this Swedish left-of-pop star!
Before Lana Del Rey, Lykke Li was the queen of moody pop.
And she's back to reclaim her crown!
Whereas Lana's songs are colder, cooler and more detached, Lykke Li explores pain and FEELING in a more emotional way. Her voice has passion in it!
This is moody yet EMO pop! At its best!!!
Check out Gunshot above!
Cameron Diaz says we live in a smelly, smelly world....
Because most of the population uses antiperspirant, and we should totally stop!
What the WHAT!?
At Monday night's premiere, The Other Woman actress confessed she's gone without the anti-stink stick for some time now, and hasn't looked back since calling it quits:
"I don't believe in antiperspirant. It's really bad for you. I haven't used it for almost 20 years. You're stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in."
She even takes it one pungent step further, revealing men should go without it as well, offering up this sage advice:
"Let it go and just trim your armpit hair so it doesn't hold onto the scent."
Has she ever smelled a dude after a sweat sesh?? Yucky!!
So while this really doesn't shock us, we still think it's icky!
Aww, aren't they just the cutest?
Jennifer Aniston and her longtime partner Justin Theroux were spotted strolling though the City of Angels on Tuesday. She had finished shooting scenes for her upcoming movie, Cake, so she was headed to lunch with her fine fiancé!
Speaking of which, just look at the adorable couple! Their love is always tastier than a slice of red velvet Cake!
Sure, Jen's floppy hat hides the most fabulous parts of her face, but you can just tell from her posture that these two are meant to be!
And they look so much warmer than they did last month, too! Hooray!
Ch-ch-check out more pics from Jen's day on set (below)!

We are LOVING Tom Hiddleston's period look for the upcoming horror film Crimson Peak!
So inneresting seeing our boy in and out of costume!
Tom is looking dark and brooding in his all-black street ensemble, then seems to come alive with mischievous glee in his sexy ebon cloak!
And though we're sure it wasn't really a supernatural costume change, there was magic involved - after all, he was nearly naked for a moment! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see Tom, Charlie Hunnam, and more get in and out of character!

What a bittersweet announcement!
Nicki Minaj is looking a bit different than the first time we met her donning her wacky outfits and ever-changing hair, but you better get used to her new sophisticated look because it is here to stay!
But...but...we LOVE that beehive!
"I went so far to the other side that there's only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, 'Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.'"
Even the most shocking looks can seem boring if they're expected and NO ONE expected her Minajesty to start walking the red carpet in little black dresses and perfectly styled hair.
We'll miss those outrageous looks, but we must admit that The Other Woman star has looked GOR-geous lately.
Let us just hope that her new style doesn't mean her loud, dance-worthy beatz will change too!

Andrew Dominik's long promised Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde was supposed to shoot last summer with Naomi Watts playing the lead in this reimagined story of Norma Jeane Baker's meteoric rise to fame.
Since then, plans have changed---and so has the leading actress!
Rumors have been swirling that Jessica Chastain will star in the soon-to-be filmed flick, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Joyce Carol Oates.
While we love this Oscar-nominated actress and saw her play a bombshell of sorts in The Help, we're having a hard time picturing her as the sex symbol siren that was Miz Monroe.
So many greats have taken on the damaged icon's role in film and TV, but now we ask U…
If looks could kill, then Bryce Dallas Howard would be a velociraptor. Good thing for us we don't have to wait 65 million years to see her get her a** Jurassic!
These first look photos from the upcoming Jurassic World get us frothing at the mouth like a dilophosaurus!
We can't wait to see Chris Pratt in the next set maybe, hopefully outrunning a T-Rex!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the pics (below)!!!
