Once again, the Glee kids are tackling a weighty issue because God forbid they keep it light. Every single storyline focuses on sex and how the characters either feel about having it or not having it, as the case may be. For all the talk about doing the nasty, we never actually see anybody getting it on, alas. But, I digress. So, let’s talk about what we do see. More »

Miley Cyrus has been hospitalized after suffering a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics. The twerkaholic was forced to cancel her Bangerz tour stop at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, the second date she has scratched due to ill health in just over a week.
“Cyrus has been hospitalized for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics and has been placed on medical rest by her doctors,” read statement from the Sprint Center. The 21-year-old also apologized to disappointed fans via social media. “Kansas I promise Im as [heartbroken] as you are,” Miley tweeted. “I wanted so badly 2 b there 2night. Not being with yall makes me feel shittier than I already do.” She later posted a pic from her hospital bed holding an octopus toy.
The “We Can’t Stop” diva has been plagued with ill health recently. Miley canceled a concert in Charlotte, North Carolina a little over a week ago when she was diagnosed with the flu and prescribed bed rest. See Miley’s hospital tweets after the jump. More »
It’s time to welcome John Mayer to the ever-expanding Bey Hive. “The best thing about Beyonce? The break in her voice on the first ‘baby, love me lights out’ in XO. Real and raw,” the singer-songwriter raved in a tweet on Saturday (April 12), before unveiling his live cover of the Ryan Tedder-penned hit at a gig in Adelaide, Australia last night.
Katy Perry‘s ex stripped “XO” back to its raw, emotional core — performing the song with only his guitar and harmonica for accompaniment. And it survives the genre switch exceedingly well. Regardless of how you feel about John’s uber-sincere schtick, his folk ballad interpretation reminds you that Bey’s love song has an unusually melancholy underbelly. Watch up top. More »
Ariana Grande has some bad news for Chris Brown. It looks like their postponed duet “Don’t Be Gone Too Long”, which Breezy’s camp previewed earlier today (April 15), won’t be the rising diva’s new single after all. Ari jumped on Twitter this afternoon to let fans know that she’s going with a song called “Problem” or “#Problem” instead. She also hinted that it will be released “very soon”.
The change of plan makes a mysterious Twitter exchange between Ariana and Iggy Azalea extremely interesting. Last night, the Australian femcee tweeted the motorbike babe: “*nudge nudge*”, to which she replied “*cough cough*”. Could the ladies be hinting at a collaboration? It would certainly be an explosive mix. There are huge expectations for Ari’s sophomore set and the rap queen’s latest single “Fancy” is shaping up to a massive hit.
