Gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album, Labrinth — real name Timothy McKenzie — recently dropped his soulful number “Let It Be.” While it might not be a party-starter like his Tinie Tempah-assisted club banger “Earthquake,” the new single not only lets his sultry pipes shine through, but also shows a real maturation for the 25-year-old English crooner.
Now “Let It Be” has a video, and it’s a pretty dizzying one at that. Filmed in a single shot, the clip seemingly follows McKenzie’s process of making his second disc, from fighting with label execs and recording tunes in the studio to just jamming with his friends. What’s more, it all takes place in a rather eerie warehouse space.
The visual might also reflect his trepidation with this still-untitled new record as he further ventures away from writing purely pop jams. More »

From ArtRave pop diva to Cheek To Cheek jazz chanteuse, Lady Gaga is truly a musical chameleon. And last night, the “Born This Way” singer-songstress delighted an unsuspecting audience with yet another musical switch-up: Glam-rock goddess!
Yesterday, while down under for the Australian leg of her ArtRave, Gaga popped out on stage during the acclaimed Adam Lambert and Queen Tour in Sydney, which has electrifying audiences all over the world this summer. (It makes sense, too — Gaga is named after Queen’s “Radio Ga Ga,” after all!)
Together, the two friends gleefully tore into Queen classic “Another One Bites The Dust” together to the roaring delight of the crowd. “Tonight I felt alive in a way I have not before. I returned to the Radio GaGa mothership to pay homage to my leaders. It was emotional and wild,” Gaga wrote on Instagram. “So much fun tonight! @ladygaga” Lambert wrote on his page.

One of the highlights of last night’s (August 26) final episode ever of Chelsea Lately — aside from seeing host Chelsea Handler nude in the shower with Ellen DeGeneres, of course — was watching Miley Cyrus cover Roy Orbison‘s aptly-titled classic “It’s Over.” The recent MTV VMAs Video Of The Year winner was every bit the class act in her red pants and white fringe jacket, doing Orbison justice by belting out the Top 10 hit from 1964 with her stunning vocal range on full display. Now this is the Miley we all love.
Later, in the show’s final minutes, Cyrus joined Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Avril Lavigne and a slew of others on stage for a riff on “We Are The World” titled “Goodbye To E!”, which sent Handler’s show off into the late night one last time.

For seven years, Chelsea Handler‘s crass, ballsy humor brought an air of uniqueness to late night TV — she was, after all, a female in an otherwise male-dominated arena. Alas, her series, Chelsea Lately, came to an end last night (August 27) in a star-filled night that saw Ellen DeGeneres confronting a nude Handler in the shower, the trio of Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Mary McCormack staging an intervention of sorts with the hostess, Chelsea’s ex 50 Cent performing with G-Unit and Miley Cyrus covering Roy Orbison‘s “It’s Over.”
For the big finale, multiple past guests of the show and friends of Handler’s — including Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes and Avril Lavigne — joined her in riffing on “We Are The World” with the farewell song “Goodbye To E!” More »
