The Wolfpack Wednesdays series continues! After traveling back home to Guam, the young pop starlet is taking us to the gym to work on her fitness — and her butt-kicking skills.
We already knew that Pia knows how to pack a punch vocally, but did you know she could also quite literally knock you out? In this latest installment of Wolfpack Wednesdays, watch as Pia shows off her Krav skills (fight training), boxing and grappling with fellow trainers like a champ. Nobody’s messing with this one — on or off the stage.
Check out Pia’s latest Wolfpack Wednesdays video up top, and be sure to watch last week’s installment right here. More »
We’ve all at one point or another had the joyous pleasure of experiencing a dreaded Greek-life party at least once in our college career. Yeah… none of us are proud of it, either. But, we’ll tell you this much: If Janelle Monáe threw a sorority bash like the one in her video for album-titled track “Electric Lady,” we’d all show up without even batting an eyelash.
The new clip follows the Kansas soulstress, decked out in her “Electro Phi Beta” letters, prancing around what seems to be a pretty thumping house party complete with hypnotizing neon lights, chicks dancing with light-sabers and a full-blown marching band lead by Janelle herself.
Light and fun, the video features an appearances from the likes of Georgia rapper T.I., ”Electro Phi Beta” Emeritus such as Estelle, Esperanza Spalding, T-Boz, Monica and Kimbra, and an opening cameo from the original Electric Lady, Janelle’s mom. More »
Last week, Nick Jonas sent a collective gasp through the blogosphere after dropping his surprise solo single “Chains,” a murky slice of dark midtempo R&B. And really, what would the accompanying music video be if Nick himself were not at least briefly chained up? The streets would be overrun with torch and pitchfork-wielding protestors — that’s for sure.
Luckily, he’s delivered on that promise: The appropriately dark ‘n sexy visual sees the Jonas Brother-turned solo star being dragged slowly across a church floor, falling from the sky, getting tied up in a chair and battling his way through a rowdy police squad and some protestors — all to represent this one girl toying with our poor Nick’s heart. There are certain video moments that come to mind while watching, including Rihanna‘s “Russian Roulette” and Beyoncé‘s “Superpower.” And by the end, it’s clear that Nick could be well on his way to becoming one of the top male pop players this year.
Check out the moody visual up top, then let us know what you think about Nick’s solo outing in the comments below. More »
It’s safe to say that Orlando Bloom is not a Belieber.
According to Page Six, Bloom and Justin Bieber got into a heated brawl leading up to an attempted punch in the general direction of Bieber’s face at Cipriani in Ibiza early this morning, and it all had to do with girls — namely Orlando’s ex, Miranda Kerr and Bieber’s on-again, off-again sweetheart, Selena Gomez.
And now for a brief #drama history lesson between the two, courtesy of Page Six: “The bad blood between the two began in 2012 when Bieber was seen getting flirty with Kerr after a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which reportedly led to tension between the model and her Hollywood star husband, Bloom. The married couple then separated in October 2013. Then newly single Bloom was seen spending time with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, in April.”
According to the tabloid, some sources say the punch came after Bieber “made a rude comment” about Miranda Kerr, while other sources say that only happened post-punch. Either way, there is now video evidence. Watch up top. More »
Kiesza jetted from New York to Los Angeles for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she took her MTV VMAs-nominated single “Hideaway” to the streets of Hollywood. Like her recent appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman, the Canadian singer spent part of the time outside, while dancing down the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and belting out the song — only this time there were plenty of locals on hand for her to interact with (including a very enthusiastic Chewbacca).
The ’90s house revivalist followed that spectacle up with her first live TV performance of “Giant In My Heart,” another cut off her Hideaway EP. Watch Kiesza do Kimmel above and below. More »
