Britney Spears has unveiled yet another short clip from her forthcoming “Perfume” music video. And it’s, well, it’s only five seconds long. But there’s so much subtext in those five seconds! In the snippet from the visual, Britney is walking away from a handsome man — the same guy from the two clips Brit Instagrammed over the weekend. She seems to be smiling, but he seems dejected, and hopefully we’ll find out why when the full video premieres Tuesday (December 10).
Spears said she “had to dig deep and really play with some acting chops for this one,” but she also said that Britney Jean was a personal album, so who even knows what to expect. More »
Ashley Tisdale, the erstwhile queen of pop (okay, so she was never the queen of pop, per se, but Guilty Pleasure is still one of the best pop albums of the late noughties), has finally rewarded fans’ patience after four long years without new tunes: The songstress posted something on Twitter that certainly looks like cover artwork for a new single, with the cryptic message: “7 days…… 12/16 #YoureAlwaysHere #specialproject.”
So what is this special project? Well, it’s probably a song called “You’re Always Here,” and it looks like it involves her, wrapped in a sheet, with flawlessly tousled beachy waves and dark, heavy eye makeup, and frankly, if you need to know anything more than that to be certain that this is a noteworthy occurrence, you’re wrong.

2 Chainz wrapped up a monster tour with Lil Wayne and T.I. earlier this year, and now he’s planning his own headlining trek for early 2014. The 2 Good 2 Be T.R.U. tour hits 21 cities, beginning February 4 in Boston and wrapping up March 4 in Washington, D.C. Pusha T, August Alsina and Cap 1 join in the opening slots, meaning fans could potentially get a nightly rendition of “Mercy” with Push.
As for what else to expect? Let 2 Chainz explain: “The best way to describe my tour is to reference a quote from Niccolo Machiavelli, author of the The Prince, who once said ‘Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are.’”

Jason Derulo, a singer best known for groundbreaking lyrics like “Jason Derulo!” and also “Jason Derulo!” revealed in a recent interview that his longtime girlfriend Jordin Sparks, whose song “Battlefield” is still objectively better than anything released in 2013, has almost finished her long-awaited third album.
“She’s getting in the studio, she’s doing a lot of acting stuff at the moment which has delayed things a little bit,” he told Digital Spy at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball. “Give it time, the album will come out. It’s almost done — she’s just putting some finishing touches on it. Everything needs to line up with the record label first and then she’ll get it out.” More »
