This week in music was all about our favorite pop chanteuses of the moment – Katy Perry and Lady Gaga - as the two released new singles and snippets from their forthcoming albums Prism and ARTPOP, respectively. Katy Perry dropped “Unconditionally” as the second official single from Prism - which is streaming now! The “Roar” singer is also a new CoverGirl! Over at the Mother Monster lair, Lady Gaga teased snippets of “G.U.Y.” and “Do What U Want,” with the latter featuring R. Kelly. But how could we forget about the reigning Princess of Pop, Britney Spears? She finally revealed the name of her eighth album – titled Britney Jean!
Halloween is nearing, and we at Idolator have begun rolling out our celebrity-themed costume tutorials! Click here to see the first installment of how to dress like Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke at this year’s MTV VMAs! Speaking of Miley, the singer is set to perform at the MTV EMAs – hopefully she won’t do a remake of that disastrous performance. Kelly Clarkson has us in the Christmas spirit quite early with her infectious songs “White Christmas” and “Underneath The Tree” off her upcoming Christmas album.
As for last week’s Ibrawlator for the best female #1 song between Pink, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and Lorde, after 495 votes Miley takes the win with 32% of the vote!

:: Mikey couldn’t believe his ears on Preview Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’: Stream 90 Seconds Of Each Song: “OMG, what happened to her? This album is terrible”

:: carlos did not let the light in on Katy Perry Brings Out The Furries For “Roar” & Dances Hard For “Walking On Air” On ‘Saturday Night Live’: Watch: “So, last album she was a teenager, now she dresses like she’s 9 years old. I guess we can wait for diapers next album.”

:: DONTxSTOP got the girls together on “Paris Hilton Drops A Solo Version Of Iconic Dance Anthem “Good Time”: Listen: “If you don’t have a true love and appreciation for pop trash, then you will never understand. The Voice Of Our Generation has returned with a fantastic dance anthem, and you just need to deal.”
