The Thaw Has Arrived: ‘Frozen’ Finally Drops Out Of The Album Chart’s Top 10

Disney Frozen movie

A whopping seven of the 10 albums within the Billboard 200‘s Top 10 this week are debuts, including Lecrae‘s Anomaly at #1 (88,000 copies sold), Jhene Aiko‘s Souled Out at #3 (70,000) and Ryan Adams‘ latest, self-titled LP at #4 (45,000). This all means several titles get the boot from the upper tier of the chart, including Ariana Grande‘s My Everything (only two weeks after debuting at #1), Sam Smith‘s In The Lonely Hour and, if you can believe it, the Frozen soundtrack. The latter had spent a total of 41 consecutive weeks in the Top 10. Who knows — it may return next week once some of these newbies with less staying power slip down the roundup.

See who landed where in the upper reaches of the Billboard 200 below. More »

Lady Gaga Arrives In Athen, Gets Naked And Posts Photos On Instagram (Semi NSFW, Obviously)


Jazz warrior and peace and love-spreading seashell bikini goddess Lady Gaga is feeling especially Cheek To Cheek-y in Athens, it seems.

The ARTPOP diva is currently out on the road with her ongoing ArtRave Tour, entertaining Little Monsters all across the world. Earlier today, the “Venus” chanteuse touched down in Greece to prepare for her upcoming performance at Olympic Stadium on September 19. And once Gaga got a glimpse of her posh hotel room, she set to taking some very intimate snapshots — especially the bathroom.

“Bathtime. “The Royal Suite” fit for a Goddess, or you know, a downtown New York gal with big dreams, and a lotta nerve,” Gaga wrote on the first butt-baring shot. “This shower ain’t too shabby either.” And then, she took it one step further: “Aphrodite Lady Shower Greekini, feeling frisky. #Venus” she teased. Where’s that BF Taylor when you need him?!

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.

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 »
