Pennsylvania’s Republican primary for an open U.S. Senate seat is too close to call and is likely headed for a statewide recount to decide the winner of the contest between heart surgeon-turned-TV celebrity Dr. Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund CEO David McCormick. A recount would mean that the outcome of the race might not be known until June 8, the deadline for counties to report their results to the state. The race is close enough to trigger Pennsylvania’s automatic recount law, with the separation between the candidates inside the law’s 0.5% margin. The Associated Press will not declare a winner in the race until the likely recount is complete.
If the 13 tracks of Harry Styles’ third LP are the walls in which he lives, “Harry’s House” is a place of self-expression, happiness and healing. From the jubilant, funky “Cinema,” to the meandering cruiser “Keep Driving,” Styles shows a breadth of style that matches the album’s emotional range, writes The Associated Press' Ragan Clark in her review. Styles is confident, but not cocky, bringing self-awareness and ease into each song. He displays a talent for storytelling, whether it's his own stories of pain or joy or channeling the experiences of others. “Harry’s House” finds Styles at his best — free, observant and content. The album is out Friday.
Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jerry Lee Lewis and the late country singer Keith Whitley will join the Country Music Hall of Fame. The 86-year-old Lewis, nicknamed “The Killer," is one of only a handful of artists to be in both music halls. Lewis says he thought he might never be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, but he's glad to have the honor. Whitley had a short career, less than five years on the Billboard charts before his death at the age of 34. But his songs like “When You Say Nothing at All” had a lasting impression on the genre. Music executive Joe Galante was also announced as a non-performer inductee.
Tom Cruise mania descended Wednesday in Cannes where the actor made a whirlwind appearance at the French film festival to screen “Top Gun: Maverick,” exalt the big screen and sit for a rare interview. Cruise brought a palpable buzz to the Croisette, where throngs gathered around the Palais des Festivals to get a glimpse of the 59-year-old star. Cruise hadn’t been to the festival in three decades. He told festivalgoers “I make movies for the big screen.” And as to why he does his own stunts, Cruise replied, “Nobody asked Gene Kelly why he danced.”

Taylor Swift has Grammys galore and now she has a new title — “doctor.” The superstar received an honorary doctorate of fine arts from New York University Wednesday, blowing kisses as the crowd roared when she walked toward the stage at a packed Yankee Stadium. Sporting her signature red lipstick and newly awarded honorary robe, Swift joked to the thousands of graduates packed at Yankee Stadium Wednesday morning that she was 90% sure she was there because of her song “22.” Swift told graduates they shouldn't be afraid of mistakes and should absolutely try, calling effortlessness “a myth.”
