It looks like Fergie‘s weed-referencing, DJ Mustard-produced comeback single “L.A. Love” is getting an official remix featuring YG. The “My Hitta” rapper even appears in the video — along with a bunch of other famous residents of the City of Angels. Sevyn Streeter, Cypress Hill’s Sen Dog and Kelly Osbourne all make cameos in the seemingly raucous visual.
How do I know? The 39-year-old Black Eyed Peas frontwoman posted a bunch of happy snaps from the shoot on her Instagram account, which reveal more than the line-up of guest stars. For starters, the concept appears to be a joyride across Los Angeles in an extremely pimped-out bus and Fergie’s wardrobe includes an eye-popping thong/skirt combination. See all the pics up top.

Last year Restless Road formed on the US version of The X Factor, under the guidance of Simon Cowell. The country-pop trio wound up in fourth place by the end of the series’ third season, and earlier this month, they found themselves reuniting with onetime X Factor judge Demi Lovato by opening for her and Christina Perri in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Moline, Illinois.
“Being able to perform on the same stage as Demi and Christina in itself was an amazing experience,” the guys tell Idolator. “We’re huge fans of both of their work. But going into the tour, we weren’t sure how a pop audience would receive our music with us being a country-rooted act. But as soon as we started performing, the crowd immediately started getting into it and having a good time.”
Today we’re premiering a gallery of exclusive backstage photos from their shows with Demi and Christina that the guys provided us, which you can flip through above. (You might notice that a new member, Jared Keim, has replaced Colton Lane Pack since the band were on The X Factor.) And below, is a short Q&A with did with the three of them — Jared, Andrew Scholz and Zachary Beeken — where they discuss their upcoming album and some of their biggest music influences. More »
Iggy Azalea and Demi Lovato provided the entertainment for the first ever Vevo CERTIFIED SuperFanFest in Santa Monica, California last night (October 8). In addition to performing all their big hits to an arena full of fans, the chart-conquering superstars were also honored with awards for dropping videos that have racked up 100,000,000+ views.
The Australian rapper achieved the rare feat with Charli XCX-assisted smash “Fancy”, while the Disney diva did the same with 2013 top 10 hit “Heart Attack”. Given the view count on “Black Widow” and “Neon Lights”, it’s only a matter of time before they do it again. Peruse pics from the evening up top. Pay particular attention to Iggy’s killer outfits and Demi’s sick fade! More »
Nicki Minaj went topless for “Pills N Potions” before conquering YouTube with her ass-tastic “Anaconda” video. When you throw her raunchy Instagram antics into the mix, it’s fair to say the rap diva spent a considerable chunk of 2014 (semi-)naked. That makes her chic L’Uomo Vogue spread something of a surprise. Sure, the 31-year-old shows plenty of cleavage but her famous curves are largely hidden by a series of fashionable suits.
The femcee also shows a different, more vulnerable side in the accompanying interview. For starters, Nicki reveals she had a panic attack after performing “***Flawless” in Paris with Beyonce. “I was flying in a private jet, tired from the performance and the jetlag, but instead of sleeping, I worried about all of the deadlines waiting for me in Los Angeles,” she admits. “I got really scared – I had a sort of panic attack”.
However, the frightening experience did have one positive side-effect. “Seeing Beyonce with her daughter and husband was so tender,” Nicki says. “It showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time.” Peruse the hitmaker’s stylish L’Uomo Vogue shoot above.

Kelly Rowland shows off her beautiful baby bump by posing nude for Elle magazine. The 33-year-old looks absolutely gorgeous in the tasteful shoot, rocking a bunch of snug-fitting dresses before ditching them altogether for one radiant snap. The Destiny’s Child diva follows in the footsteps of fellow pregnant diva Christina Aguilera, who recently stripped off for V magazine.
The mom-to-be opened up about juggling a career with motherhood, saying she draws inspiration from other superstars: “I watch Diana Ross and Donna Summer and all these women — they’ve managed to do it all. I think ‘What makes me different? I can definitely do it.’ And this is something I’ve wanted.” As for music? Well, Kelly is already working on that. “I go in the studio next week!” she reveals.

Whatever Nick Jonas has been doing to promote his current single “Jealous” and upcoming eponymous album (due out November 11), it’s working. And by “whatever he’s been doing,” we mean we know exactly what he’s been up to — which is stripping off in a series of raunchy, I’m Not A Cute And Cuddly Teen Idol Anymore photos for Flaunt magazine.
Following the first round of said snaps to appear online, six more images from the shoot have surfaced, which you can flip through above. Incidentally, “Jealous” has now leaped up to #7 on iTunes. Lay back and enjoy some stimulating images of Nick while you listen. More »
Jessie J covers the latest issue of Cosmopolitan UK in a sheer dress that shows off her lean physique. The comeback queen of 2014 takes things to the next level in the sexy pictorial by showing some side-boob and serving serious face. It’s a good look for the Brit, who is gearing up to release third LP Sweet Talker later this month (October 13).
And while the “Bang Bang” diva says her focus is music, she spends most of the interview talking about dating. “I’m still finding my feet in love. Maybe America is the place I’ll meet the man of my dreams?” Jessie muses. “I’m a woman and I live a 26-year-old woman’s life: I have relationships and I have sex… and that’s OK… I’m growing up and I don’t want to obscure any parts of me or take them away.” Good to know she’s getting lucky on a regular basis.

If you’ve been online at all this morning (October 2), you’ve probably been confronted by friends (and complete strangers) literally crying and shaking over Nick Jonas‘ eye-popping Flaunt magazine shoot. We knew it was going to be a raunchy affair from the shirtless, snail trail showcasing cover but the actual pics represent a Miley Cyrus-like transformation for the (formerly) wholesome pop star.
For starters, the 22-year-old pays homage to Mark Wahlberg‘s iconic 1991 Calvin Klein campaign by stripping down to his tighty whities and grabbing his bulge for the camera. Nick even shows off the peach fuzz on his muscular butt in one of the more graphic Yu Tsai-shot images. I’m all for the “Jealous” singer’s semi-nude shoot. The leading ladies of pop have been pulling this kind of publicity stunt for years, it’s about time one of the boys gave it a try! More »
Charli XCX is arguably the breakout pop diva of 2014. She scored a well-deserved (and long-overdue) commercial breakthrough with her song-stealing feature on Iggy Azalea‘s summer smash “Fancy” and swiftly followed it up with another top 10 hit — The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack smash “Boom Clap”. The Brit is now hoping to cement her status as a pop heavyweight with third LP Sucker.
The 22-year-old is busily promoting Stargate-produced bop “Break The Rules” (the album’s second single) and generally generating hype by posting adorable Instagram photos holding hard candy. We love Charli XCX and sugary treats, so it’s a pretty heady combination for us. We’ve collected the rising star’s best Sucker-themed snaps in a gallery up top. Enjoy! More »
