Madonna celebrated the 20th anniversary of 'Bedtime Stories' by posting this pic.

The already-long list of collaborators working on Madonna‘s 13th studio album now includes Nicki Minaj and SOPHIE, according to Diplo. We knew that the Queen of pop was spending time with the “Anaconda” femcee in New York recently but this is the first official confirmation that they are working on new music after their ill-fated/horrible collaborations on MDNA.

“Me and SOPHIE did a bunch of stuff together,” Diplo revealed in a recent interview. “We’re going to be releasing it. I did a record that was literally SOPHIE and Madonna and Nicki Minaj.” So, who is SOPHIE? One of the hottest electronic producers on the dance scene thanks to underground hits like “Bipp” and “Lemonade”. He (it’s a dude) is known for incorporating J-Pop and K-Pop influences into his super-cute bops. Throw Nicki and Lorde‘s nemesis into the mix, and things could get really crazy! More »

Pitbull unveils the animated video for his 'Penguins Of Madagascar' soundtrack song "Celebrate".

Pitbull‘s eighth studio LP Globalization drops November 24 but the MC’s collaboration with Chris Brown has arrived online a little early. And it’s actually rather great! An irresistible ’80s throwback, “Fun” pays tribute to Miami Sound Machine‘s exuberant Cuban-influenced pop with it’s hip-swinging Latin rhythms and perky percussion. Breezy’s Michael Jackson-channelling vocal is also something of a treat.

“Oh my my, lookin’ like a good good time, don’t disguise the way you wanna love tonight,” the “Loyal” hitmaker sings over what could well be a sample of Gloria Estefan & Co.’s 1985 hit “Conga”. “Oh my my, hook you with a brand new high, don’t be shy I just wanna live tonight”. That’s when Mr. Worldwide pops up for the briefest of verses before returning for an encore where he name checks Enrique Iglesias and raps about his glamorous lifestyle.

Madonna Calls Out Society’s Perception Of Kim Kardashian’s Exposed Ass On Instagram: See The Topless Pic

Iconic trailblazer, #unapologeticbitch and frequent nipple-exposer Madonna has something to say about the way the world accepts the naked body…and she seems to be making a not-so-subtle reference to Kim Kardashian‘s bare ass on Paper Magazine while doing so.

Earlier today, the “Erotica” legend posted a photo of herself topless (but censored!), using the opportunity to make a point about society’s perception of nudity — and, more specifically, nipples. “Its confusing. Nipples are considered forbidden and provocative but exposing your ass is not. #flummoxed,” the MDNA Queen captioned the provocative photo. (Similarly, Rihanna went on an Instagram strike for several months after photos were pulled from her account from her topless Lui shoot.) Of course, as we know, there’s a certain very famous, very exposed ass breaking the Internet at the moment. Could the Material Girl be talking about the way the world is sharing the nude photo of Kim K? It certainly seems to be that way. More »

Eminem Rapped About Punching Lana Del Rey
Eminem incurred the wrath of Twitter by rapping about punching Lana Del Rey in the face.

Just when you thought Eminem had sunk about as low as he could go by rapping about punching Lana Del Rey, the 42-year-old goes and records a song about wanting to rape Iggy Azalea. “Put that shit away Iggy, you don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me,” he spits on Shady XV cut “Vegas”. “Scream! I love it!” Gross. Given her impressive track record or returning fire, it was only a matter of time before the Australian femcee replied and she fired off a trio of tweets addressing the controversy this morning (November 20).

“I’m bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend,” Iggy began. “Much more interested in the young women getting $ trend.” She then brought up her younger brother, who is a fan of the veteran rapper. “It’s especially akward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. nice!” And for her final comment? “Women in music have the bigger balls anyhow we endure much more harassment and critic.” See her tweets after the jump.

Selena Gomez Unveils 'For You' Cover & Tracklist
Selena Gomez is wrapping up her time at HWR with a greatest hits compilation called 'For You'.

Selena Gomez embraces her sexy side on “Do It” — the second new song on greatest hits compilation For You. (The first, of course, being rising hit “The Heart Wants What It Wants”). Another Rock Mafia production, the slinky bedroom anthem is cute and catchy bop that proves the 22-year-old is all grown up. “Sitting on my bed with just your t-shirt on,” Sel coos before reaching the bubbly chorus: “If I had a choice, if I had my way, boy you know we’d do it every single day.”

Well, then! It’s definitely a change of pace from the compilation’s surprisingly raw and gritty lead single but “Do It” is pretty irresistible and deserves its spot on For You. Selena will perform “The Heart Wants What It Wants” for the first time on Sunday night’s (November 23) American Music Awards. The track is steadily gaining momentum on radio and iTunes and is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of her career. Listen to her new song after the jump. More »
