  • Taylor Swift

    "That was something that really frustrated me at the time," Swift said in 2015 about convincing her own team about her transition into pop music. "The biggest struggle turned into the biggest triumph."

  • Kendrick Lamar

    In January 2014 Lamar says of his goals for his next album: "Creatively, I just want to be in another space." He also tells THR he doesn't know what to expect from the Grammys, which he had never attended before.

  • Justin Bieber and Manager Scooter Braun

    The pop star and his manager goof around at THR's October 2013 photo shoot but get serious when needed, saying, "A lot of people thought we wouldn't address the rumors," says Braun. "There is no fluff." 

  • Katy Perry

    Katy Perry reveals in 2012 the inspiration for her concert-documentary 'Katy Perry: Part of Me'. "I felt there was a big wave coming," says the 27-year-old pop superstar. "And I wanted to remember that wave and show it to everyone from my point of view. ... I didn't edit out all the times I looked bad -- I thought it was important to document the highs and the lows."

  • Pitbull

    During a 2104 interview, the Grammy winner from Miami shares his admiration for the American business magnate Mark Cuban: "His last name is Cuban and I'm Cuban. So it all works out."
