>> Read more trending news

The group from Sweden announced they will release new music for the first time in 35 years, The Independent reported.

On its Instagram account, the group -- Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad -- wrote that “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!"

The group said it recorded two new songs, with “I Still Have Faith In You” to be performed “by our digital selves” in a TV special set to air in December, the Independent reported.

The virtual “Abbatars” were announced earlier and will form a digital experience -- the band members themselves will not be performing, but the group can be experienced in a concert setting, had previously been announced; and will form the basis of a “digital gig” - meaning the band themselves won’t be performing, but the group can still be experienced in a concert environment, The Express reported.

The Abbatars’ world tour is expected to take place during 2019 and 2020, the group announced.

People magazine has named Pink the Most Beautiful Woman of 2018.

The singer is front and center on People’s “Beautiful Issue,” a rebranding of the annual honor, dropping the word most, Entertainment Tonight reported.

The publication’s editor-in-chief, Jess Cagle, told Entertainment Tonight, “Over the years, the name of the issue has evolved (’50 Most Beautiful,’ ‘Most Beautiful Woman,’ etc.), but the words ‘Most Beautiful’ have always been part of the title. This year we’re renaming it ‘The Beautiful Issue’ - to make clear that the issue is not a beauty contest. Nothing else has changed.”

Cagle said, “As always it will feature beautiful women (and a few men) of all shapes, sizes and colors, and it will celebrate the most beautiful qualities of all: strength, humanity and artistry.”

Texas police investigating claim that R. Kelly ‘knowingly and intentionally’ gave 19-year-old STD

Police in Dallas, Texas, are investigating a now-20-year-old woman’s allegations that controversial R & B star R. Kelly “knowingly and intentionally” gave her a sexually transmitted disease without telling her.

The Dallas Morning News reports the woman, who was 19 at the time she dated Kelly, was allegedly infected with herpes after an 11-month relationship with the singer. The accuser, who has not been identified publicly, filed a formal complaint with the Dallas Police Department against the 51-year-old “I Believe I Can Fly” crooner last week. She intends to file a lawsuit later this week, according to her lawyer Lee Merritt.

"When somebody brings something to our attention, we have a responsibility to look into it and to do our due diligence -- that's with any kind of case," Dallas police Dept. Chief Thomas Castro, who oversees investigations, told the Morning News Monday.

In the April 9 criminal complaint, the woman said she experienced “serious bodily injury” during a relationship in which Kelly also allegedly gave her illegal drugs and alcohol, Merritt told the Huffington Post. The relationship ended in February.

“Our client was the victim of several forms of criminal misconduct by Kelly, including, but not limited to, unlawful restraint, furnishing alcohol and illegal drugs to a minor, and aggravated assault (via the referenced intentional STD infection),” Merritt wrote in a press release. “These offenses occurred while our client was being groomed to join Kelly’s sex cult.”

Over the last several years, Kelly has been on the accused end of various sexual misconduct claims. In 2008, the entertainer was acquitted of child pornography charges, which came after accusations he videotaped himself having sex with underage girls.

Last year, BuzzFeed broke the story that several women alleged Kelly abused and imprisoned them as part of a “cult” at his estate in Johns Creek, Georgia. Last month, his former girlfriend accused Kelly of sexually abusing her from the age of 14.

Kelly has not responded to several requests for comment, but through his representative he told the Washington Post he "categorically denies all claims and allegations" the Dallas criminal complaint.

Despite his legal battles, Kelly has maintained a successful touring and recording career, selling more than 60 million albums.
