Ibrawlator: Beyonce — What’s Up With Her This Year? Vote & See Debate Highlights

Today’s Ibrawlator Twitter debate over Beyonce’s current state of affairs was as heated — and fun — as we expected (if not more so!). It seems that the BeyHive is just as divided over Queen B’s lack of album five news and official single releases in 2013 as our own Sam Lansky and Mike Wass

Iggy Azalea Talks “Bounce”, Record Deals And How Her Fans Keep Her Motivated

When Iggy Azalea dropped by our Los Angeles studio in the midst of fighting off a terrible cough, we figured once the gal survived a grueling round of Pop Associated she’d have called it a day.

Billboard Music Awards 2013: Ke$ha, How Do You Plan To Sit In That Dress?!

Ke$ha was wise enough to know that glitter was not necessary to raise eyebrows at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards — at least not when you arrive wearing a dress that’s essentially MTV’s Undressed from the front and a Skinamax flick from the side (if you follow our 90s TV metaphor).

Billboard Music Awards 2013: Miley Cyrus Goes Black And White On The Blue Carpet

Miley Cyrus turned heads as she arrived at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night (May 19), dressed in a jumpsuit that looked like it had been fashioned together from the remains of an old Sexy Jester Halloween Costume and a few of Grandma Cyrus’ doilies.
