Music notes: Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Meghan Trainor, The Kid LAROI, Post Malone, Måneskin and more

Rihanna is one of the chillest celebrities, claims Extra reporter Rachel Lindsay. The former Bachelorette star was on The Jennifer Hudson Show and recalled interviewing Rihanna on a red carpet. “The first thing she says to me is ‘Hey, boo,"” she said, adding the singer is “so down to earth.”

TMZ claims Taylor Swift was asked to headline next year’s Super Bowl halftime show, but she turned it down until to focus on rerecording all her albums. The gig has since gone to Rihanna.

Meghan Trainor has her own zine coming out in celebration of her new album, Takin’ It Back. Fans can preorder the zine, which chronicles the making of the new album, at Meghan’s online store.

Post Malone and The Kid LAROI will headline the Cash App & Visa Presents Bootsy Bellows x Sports Illustrated Circuit Series Official After Party. LAROI will team up with Zedd on October 21, while Posty will headline on October 22. The festival is set in Austin, Texas, and tickets are on sale now.

“Beggin"” singers Måneskin have a new single coming out next Friday, October 7, called “The Loneliest.”

Speaking of Måneskin, Eurovision will be hosted in either Glasgow or Liverpool, reports NME. The United Kingdom will be substitute hosting the singing competition for Ukraine, who won this year’s contest and hosting rights. The war with Russia has forced the competition to move.

Jack Harlow will co-host The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon next Thursday, October 6. He’ll help with the opening monologue and interview the night’s guest, Dwyane Wade.

Harry Styles‘ “Watermelon Sugar” has been voted the best song of the summer, says Billboard. The website offered a bracket-like voting contest featuring every song of the summer since 2010. Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” ranked second.
