In case you have yet to realize, when pop divas get bored these days, they like to strip off their clothes, bare their boobs and butts and toss the photos out there for public consumption, whether they be devoured through print or on Instagram.
However, Rihanna, as we know, got her wrist slapped awhile back for posting such naughtiness to photo-sharing hub Instagram, so now she dishes out her racy snaps on the apparently less-conservative medium known as Twitter. And RiRi’s latest message to her fans, just as summer begins to wind down? That would be: “School. Kills.”
That’s a lovely thought, considering kiddies have enough dread every time the start of the school year rolls around. Oh, and Rihanna also attached a pic of herself wearing a see-through skirt, with her hand suggestively placed on her mesh panty-covered business. Enjoy below! More »
The NFL Super Bowl! A shining American beacon of sportsmanship, teamwork, freedom — and heavily censored FCC rules and regulations.
After a series of superstar performances in past years, including Bruno Mars, last year’s Beyoncé Bowl and 2012′s show with Madonna (which landed her in hot water thanks to M.I.A.‘s middle finger), the show organizers have reportedly narrowed down the potential performers for next year’s show to Katy Perry, Rihanna or Coldplay. That is — if they’ve got the money.
The Wall Street Journal reports that NFL organizers “also asked at least some of the acts if they would be willing to contribute a portion of their post-Super Bowl tour income to the league, or if they would make some other type of financial contribution, in exchange for the halftime gig,” which has apparently been met with “chilly reception.” That’s right: They’ve got the gall to ask if these superstar acts would pay to play.

Reserved Queen Of Subtlety Nicki Minaj dumped her “Anaconda” video upon the masses overnight — you know, the one for the song about a giant d*** paired with lyrical imagery about her seductive ass? Ring a bell? — and it’s basically what you’d expect.
The demure rapstress first hangs with her tribe of girls in the jungle, twerking the day away and doing some lesbian-lite grinding. Next we move to a sexy aerobics class where — you guessed it — there’s more twerking. A pink-wigged Nicki then stands in a kitchen, all Julia Child-like (you know, if Julia had been a porned-up stripper in a Swedish maid’s outfit) and shoves a peeled banana in her mouth while also spraying whipped cream on her boobs.

When Madonna releases a new album, it isn’t so much an event as it is an international holiday.
Her Madgesty is now on her 13th studio album. 2012′s MDNA gave us just a little bit of the life we needed for the icon’s 12th release, but of course we wanted more. It’s only natural, given this is a woman who has consistently reinvented herself for three decades straight.
Now it’s 2014, which feels like the perfect time for her to drop off a new project and deliver that breed of cross-genre pop that only she can provide.
Details on the album thus far have been hit or miss: While other websites have speculated by way of Instagram posts and other random clues, Idolator played detective and dug up even more info on the album. Of course, nothing is conclusive since this is Madge, but we do have enough information to at the very least be excited for the project.
So without further ado, let’s see what we have in store from the Queen Of Pop herself. More »

You never know what you’re going to get with the iTunes Single Of The Week — a diamond in the rough or a lump of coal. Happily, this week’s selection is definitely the former. George Ezra‘s melodic folk-pop anthem “Budapest” has been a phenomenon in Europe, reaching the top 10 in the UK, Germany and Italy (among other nations) and then proved just as popular in Australia and New Zealand.
What’s so intoxicating about the Brit’s breakthrough single? Well, it has a probably lot to do with George’s sleepy voice and timeless melodies. His sound is unique but if you need a comparison, the closest is probably Ed Sheeran circa + mixed with a little Vance Joy. Hell, Ryan Tedder called “Budapest” the song of the summer, so it has to be good! Listen after the jump. More »
