Jessie J To Play Intimate Showcases In New York City And Los Angeles This October


Jessie J is bringing a little sweetness stateside this fall.

Just ahead of the release of her forthcoming third studio LP Sweet Talker on October 14, the British powerhouse vocalist has just announced two intimate shows in America this October.

Jessie will be heading to Gramercy Theatre in NYC on October 9, followed by a performance on her album release day at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on October 14. And, judging by her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this year, Jessie’s beloved Heartbeats are certainly in for a stunning live showcase.

The songstress will most likely be performing a mixture of older Who You Are smashes like “Price Tag” and “Domino,” as well as key cuts off of her upcoming album. And hey, maybe her “Bang Bang” BFFs Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj or “Burnin’ Up” collaborator 2 Chainz will stop by too?

In the meantime, get excited for Jessie’s next single by watching her acoustic take on the track after the jump. More »

Taylor Swift Explains The Animators Sequence In “Shake It Off” Outtake


Taylor Swift has been slowly rolling out fun outtakes from behind-the-scenes of the silly video for her smash hit, “Shake It Off.”

Last week, Taylor gave us a look at the ballet, cheerleader and modern dance sequences from the clip. And today, we’re learning a bit more about the The Animators — the futuristic pop-and-lockers. “Dancers are such passionate people about what they do, and they’re so proud to be in a music video representing their style of dance…and I’m so proud to awkwardly ruin it with my dancing,” she deadpans.

Head down after the jump to watch the 1989 singer-songwriter dancing crazy spastic in front of the trained dancers in a vintage Lady Gaga (circa 2008) spaceball look. “I try so hard. I’m always trying so hard…I think that’s the point of this video,” Taylor reflects behind the scenes. Oh, Taylor. More »

SBTRKT Teams Up With Caroline Polachek For “Look Away”: Watch The Scary Interactive Video


Unless you’re an indie music nut, you might wondering why the name Caroline Polachek sounds familiar. She is the writer/producer behind Beyonce‘s “No Angel” (ie. the best song on Queen Bey’s stunning visual album) and therefore a tried and tested genius. For further proof, check out her spooky feature on SBTRKT‘s creepy new track “Look Away”.

Taken from the British producer’s forthcoming sophomore LP Wonder Where We Land (due October 7), “Look Away” serves up a nightmarish soundscape of sinister synths. It’s the perfect canvas for Caroline’s haunting vocals and is pretty much guaranteed to soundtrack a horror movie eventually.

It’s called Big Fat Lie and boasts an extraordinarily sexy cover, which finds the thinking man’s Beyonce — just go with it — tussling her hair and rocking chunky jewelry that screams early Janet Jackson. I love it.

Nick Jonas Unveils His Cute, Colorful And Generally Adorable “Jealous” Video: Watch


After giving fans a taste of his sexy new R&B sound with buzz single “Chains”, Nick Jonas pulled the trigger with “Jealous”. Co-written with hitmaker Nolan Lambroza and singer/songwriter Simon Wilcox, the ’80s-influenced anthem is a rush of fizzy pop with slick synths and a monster chorus. Radio is eating it up, which means the 22-year-old could have a big hit on his hands.

The much-anticipated video dropped today (September 16) and it features a variety of segments/skits that include a very uneven basketball game, a piano duet in heaven and a cameo appearance from real-life girlfriend Olivia Culpo, who plays the cello in her lingerie. The things we do for love! It’s all very good natured and cute and most importantly has a great soundtrack. Watch after the jump. More »
