The Bel-Air, California, enclave was completed this year, and has six separate structures and 10,000 square feet of outdoor space, according to the Los Angeles Times — so 5-year-old Blue Ivy and 2-month-old twins Sir and Rumi should have plenty of room to play around!

Also on the property are four swimming pools, a full-sized basketball court and a spa.

The Clever Clues Taylor Swift ​I​s Dropping Her Sixth Album and What They Could Mean

​#​TS6 is coming, y’all!

The 27-year-old sent fans into a frenzy on Friday when she mysteriously deleted her entire social media history. We’re talking Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Tumblr accounts ​​– all wiped clean. Even the photo avatars on her pages – vanished. She also unfollowed everyone she was following​.

But what does it mean? Well, besides the obvious (that new music is coming)​, s​ome ​fans believe ​she’s leaving hints about what to expect in terms of album name and/or song titles.

We’ve compiled a list of additional clues that Taylor has dropped in the past 24 hours. Get ready to have your mind blown.

1. All her social media posts have been deleted.

​​Twitter: All tweets, retweets and likes are gone. She also unfollowed everyone, deleted her profile pic, header and Twitter bio ​–​ which read “Born in 1989.” Yep. A new album era is upon us!

​​Instagram: All posts are gone. Profile pic has vanished. She also unfollowed everyone here.

​​Facebook: All posts are gone. Profile pic has vanished.

​​YouTube: Her VEVO account is still intact​,​ but the profile pic on her personal account is gone.

​​Tumblr: Everything’s gone but when you load the page it fades from pink to black. We think that’s intentional.

2. According to sleuth fans, Taylor’s website (which is now completely black ​– and​​​ ​doesn’t fade from pink) boasted coding that​,​ when r​u​n through a cryptogram​,​ translated to “that’s what they don’t see.” A few users discovered it. But per one Twitter chain, it looks like the website changed at some point.

​It’s all detailed in the threads below. ​

3. Her Instagram history says a lot. She’s known to drop subtle hints on Instagram — and we’re thinking the same goes here ​– even if they have all been deleted. Her last three pics were all dedicated to her friends (Selena Gomez,​ the girl group​ H​AIM and Lorde) and the captions say a lot:

“Sultry pop music from this dreamy almost-birthday-girl,” she wrote on her last post about Selena’s song​,​ “Fetish​,​” along with a series of THIRTEEEN clapping hand emojis.

“On. Repeat. Til. The. End. Of. Time‼ ‼ ‼ ‼ ‼ ‼ ! @haimtheband,” Swift captioned her second to last Instagram post ​– a song snippet praising a H​AIM single. Yep. That’s 13 exclamation points. And she paused the song preview 13 seconds in.

“G2G BRB just gonna make up an interpretive dance to this magnificent bop for the ages,” Taylor wrote on her post promoting pal Lorde’s “Green Light.” She then added “ELLA I LOVE YOU.” That last part. 13 characters.

4. When you search the term “Taylor Swift” on D​irecTV​, it shows she will appear on Good Morning America on ​Thursday, ​Aug​. 31. That’s 13 days from now. And if you flip 31, ​you get 13. And if you know anything about Taylor, you know that’s her lucky number.

5. Today also marks the three​-year ​anniversary of Taylor’s 1989 album announcement and the release of “Shake it Off.”

So what does it all mean? We’re not completely sure but ​knowing her history with leaving cleverly-strewn bread crumbs, ​we​ ​​h​ope (and think) it somehow correlates with her upcoming album name or theme​​.

First, we like the idea of all the thirteen symbolism in her subtle activity. The rumored GMA date and the final portions of her last three Instagrams all make a reference to her lucky number.

We also think the words in those captions could mean something. “Almost-birthday-girl” could mean she’ll drop her sixth studio album before her own birthday in December. Or, the “till the end of time” caption on her pic to H​AIM could mean her upcoming album will have something to do with time ​– fitting since she writes about “the ages” in her caption to Lorde.

The ideas of vanishing, fading and going dark are also intriguing. Aside from her victory in court, this goes hand in hand with the effort she’s made to disappear from the spotlight the past several months.

What do you guys think? Are we reading too far into this or are we right on the money? Let @Katie_Krause know on Twitter as we all anxiously await new Taylor Swift tunes. ​

Miley Cyrus Releases Elvis-Inspired 'Younger Now' Video — Plus, Check Out Her New Album Art & Track List!

Miley Cyrus released the music video for her latest single “Younger Now” on Thursday, and the Diamond Martel-directed neon-lit rockabilly dreamscape is truly stunning.

The beautifully shot video evokes a lot of the young artist’s musical roots –country/western music specifically, she rocks a rhinestone-studded jumpsuit that godmother Dolly Parton, who joins Cyrus on the album’s third track, “Rainbowland,” would be proud of — while also examining her own growth and evolution as an performer. One moment, she’s reenacting an Elvis puppet show, the next, she’s planting one on a granny in cat-eye glasses.

NEWS: Miley Cyrus Finally Feels Like She Has ‘Respect’: ‘I Proved What I Wanted to Do’

The song — which is the titular track off Cyrus’ forthcoming sixth studio album — is the third single she’s released following “Malibu” and “Inspired,” and continues to showcase her new sound –which is a drastic change from what fans heard off her previous albums, Bangerz and Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.

The song itself feels like a rather overt reflection on her career so far, and seems to lay out how she’s trying to change her image from wild party girl to a more introspective kind of pop artist — especially with lyrics like, “Feels like I just woke up/ Like all this time I’ve been asleep/ Even though it’s not who I am/ I’m not afraid of who I used to be,” and “No one stays the same.”

In May, Cyrus opened on Long Island’s Cooper Lawrence morning show about how she regrets the music video she made for her hit 2013 single “Wrecking Ball.”

“It’s kinda crazy that I’ll always be known for licking a sledge hammer,” the 24-year-old artist shared. Later, on a different radio program, Cyrus said singing “Wrecking Ball” makes her sad, because she’ll never live down the video she now considers embarrassing. Check out the video below to hear more.

Cyrus‘ latest album, Younger Now, will be dropping on September 29. Check out the track list and cover art below.

EXCLUSIVE: Aly & AJ Talk First Single in 10 Years 'Take Me' and Dish on New Music

Aly and AJ Michalka are back!

The sisters dropped their first single in 10 years, “Take Me,” on Friday and fans are freaking out!

WATCH: EXCLUSIVE: Aly & AJ on Finally Getting to Grow Up, on Screen and in Their New Music

While the sisters had recorded music under their band 78violet, this is the return to their namesake duo, which they formed in 2004. ET’s Ashley Crossan spoke with the pair earlier this year at San Diego Comic-Con, where they dished on their new music and their comeback!

“We’re releasing our first single after a long time, a long time away from music,” AJ, 26, told ET. “We haven’t released anything under Aly & AJ in 10 years. So, we’re really excited, and this single really represents the new sound and, just, us as adult artists. It’s been a long time coming.”

So why the 10-year gap?

“I think for us, we really focused on acting — and, we were signed at such a young age, that I really feel like the music industry, it changed so much,” AJ explained. “Once Aly and I left our label, it kind of, like, [was] one of those things we didn’t want to do for a little bit. We kind of wanted to take a break. I mean, I think when you’re a kid and you start that young, you’re trying to figure out what your sound is and, you know, if you can get back on track with writing.”

“We just went through this time where we just froze, musically,” she continued. “And I’m really glad it took as long as it did, because I don’t think we’d be writing the material we are now if we hadn’t taken that time.”

“Yeah, it’s been a while,” added Aly, 28. “I think a part of it, too, was being inspired to make new music again. I think we just were in a writing funk, and I think that happens with a lot of artists and some people are better at just powering through it. I think for us, we needed to sit back for a moment.”

The singers define their new sound as “very West Coast.”

“‘Cause we’re California girls,” explained AJ. “So, we have a bunch of different music that has influenced us over the years, since we were growing up. But it’s funny, when we played the music to our friends, a lot of them were saying, ‘It’s very nostalgic sounding.’ So I don’t know necessarily what that means, but I was like, ‘I like nostalgia, so OK.'”

“But it’s definitely aiming toward pop,” Aly chimed in. “There’s a little bit of an ’80s influence there. Still definitely sounds like Aly & AJ and what we represent — but 10 years later.”

As for their plan after their upcoming album drops, the girls are ready to go on tour!

“Ultimately, we would love to be on the road next spring opening up for someone,” Aly shared. “We’ve only kind of ever done our own tours, where we were just the main act. And we’re really interested in being able to prove ourselves to a different fan base, who maybe wouldn’t normally like Aly & AJ music, or has a preconceived notion of what Aly & AJ music is. It’s kind of fun to win over that crowd. So we’re excited for that.”

Justin Bieber is back and he wants to be “Friends.”

The Purpose singer dropped a new song on Thursday, just weeks after canceling the remaining dates on his world tour due to exhaustion. “Friends” is a collaboration with BloodPop®, who produced multiple songs on Bieber’s most recent album.

EXCLUSIVE: Jaden Smith Says Justin Bieber Is ‘Totally Fine’ After Canceling Tour: ‘We All Go Through Things’

With lyrics that read pretty effectively like a post-breakup text chain, the 22-year-old pop star croons lines like, “I was wonderin’ ’bout your mama, did she get that job she wanted?” and “No, we didn’t end this so good, but you know we had something so good.”

Forgive the rhyming of “good” with “good,” look your ex up on Facebook or Instagram, and dive into the beat-heavy ballad below.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but hope everyone who sees the show will agree it was worth the wait.”

It’s been a big year for Perry — between releasing her new album, her upcoming gig hosting the MTV Video Music Awards, gearing up for the tour and becoming a judge on the new American Idol. In a recent interview with W magazine, the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer shared that she’s very content with where she currently is in life.

“Whether it’s politically, mentally, spiritually, sexually, I feel liberated from all the things that don’t serve me,” she noted. “I’m surrendering and embracing my 30s. You couldn’t give me anything to go back to my 20s. To get to this place, I had to do some much-needed work on my heart, soul, mind, and body. Since doing that, a lot of beautiful things started to bloom again.”
