A few moments ago, Iggy Azalea posted the above single cover artwork for her “Fancy” follow-up “Black Widow” on Instagram. The New Classic cut is a “Dark Horse”-like jam that features Rita Ora and was co-produced by Stargate, and from the look of things, this time around I-G-G-Y has taken a thematic cue from Quentin Tarantino‘s early ’00s two-part bloodfest Kill Bill.
That’s quite a switch from Clueless, the ’90s teen classic that provided the inspiration for Azalea’s “Fancy” video. Still, it opens up a myriad of yellow-and-red-hued possibilities for what we can expect from the “Black Widow” visual. More »
Has Miley Cyrus finally tired of carting her boobs out for all to see on Instagram (and elsewhere)? Goddamn, we hope not.
Over the past week, the Bangerz pop stripper has posted some truly bizarre snaps on the photo-sharing social site — ones which have her lovely mug covered (or partially-covered) by everything from bath soap bubbles to a mask made of miniature teddy bears to a cap made of various toy parts and keychains, all Frankenstein-style.
Just take a look at that first one and imagine that crawling out from under your bed at night, children. More »
Nicki Minaj has yet to reveal when she will release her new album, The Pink Print. However, she recently assured fans that their patience will be rewarded. During a brief chat with Home Shopping Network, she revealed that she plans to tour at the “top of 2015.” The “Pills N Potions” star last toured in 2012 to promote her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and its Re-Up re-release.
Minaj stopped by HSN twice today (July 11), once at midnight and again at noon (Usher called in!), to promote her latest fragrance Minajesty Exotic. While the bottle features the same metallic face and bright hair from her previous scents, Minaj hints that a black-haired version is in the works – and adding, of course, that she’s in the studio wrapping The Pink Print when she isn’t testing out her fragrance. “It’s nothing like I’ve ever done before,” she says of her new material, which is to come “before the end of the year.”
Watch Minaj talk her latest fragrance and speak to fans live – she even gives a birthday wish – during her first HSN stop after the jump. More »
Could Katy Perry be starring in a Clueless musical? Director Amy Heckerling recently revealed that, while she’s in the early stages of planning a Broadway adaptation of the classic 1995 film, she has already decided that the Prism star would be her ideal Cher Horowitz. “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death,” Heckerling says to Vulture.
She has also thought of another possible star, in case Perry’s schedule conflicts with her own. “Maybe Iggy wants to do it!” she said – of course, referring to Iggy Azalea. Turns out, Heckerling loves how Azalea paid tribute to Clueless in her “Fancy” video. “It looked like they had more money for the video than I had for the movie,” she said. “But I was extremely flattered and I thought she was amazing.” More »
Drake and Chris Brown recently hit the studio, as shown in a new photo. (TMZ says that Drake posted it, although it doesn’t appear on the rapper’s social media accounts.)
To most, this new snapshot serves as proof that the two have reconciled after their lengthy, ugly beef. Funny enough, a behind-the-scenes photo posted last October seemed to say the exact same thing. At the same time, though, it’s tough to blame fans for forgetting the first time they appeared to have moved on. Their beef dates back to 2012, which culminated into a massive brawl at a New York City nightclub, allegedly over Rihanna, that resulted in a $16 million lawsuit. More »
Diplo recently hinted that Major Lazer‘s next album will feature “a lot of big name acts.” Could Katy Perry be one of them? Roots reggae blog Jah Blem Muzik caught up with Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire to talk Mad Decent signee Jesse Royal‘s new mixtape Royally Speaking. Apparently, when Perry joined them in the studio, she knew the words to Royal’s 2013 song “This Morning.”
“The funniest moment was having Katy Perry in the studio singing, ‘Woke up this morning feeling so blessed,’ and writing a whole song to the RootsMan Riddim while Jesse did the dub for [his song] ‘Modern Day Judas,’” Walshy Fire said. “Watching her catch that reggae vibe was the best part of recording.” What remains to be seen, then, is whether Perry wrote that song for Royal or Major Lazer.
