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 »
If you’re going to put out a song about ass, you’d better be prepared to show a little. Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea, however, go above and beyond with their eye-popping “Booty” visual. The bottom-heavy babes spend most of the clip shaking their butts and groping each other in various states of undress, which makes it potentially the greatest lesbian soft porn extravaganza of all time.
To commemorate this magical achievement, I’ve lovingly — after considerable research and several replays — curated a gallery of the video’s sexiest moments. Who will ever forget when the rap diva smacks J.Lo’s butt or Jenny’s temperature-raising solo at the end? It’s like the finale of Flashdance only a million times hotter. Peruse the pics up top and rewatch the clip after the jump. More »
Chris Brown‘s sixth studio LP X dropped this week and it’s predicted to debut at number two on the Billboard 200 with an extremely healthy opening bow of 130,000+ copies. (The only thing standing between the 25-year-old and another number one album is Barbra Streisand‘s duets LP Partners, believe it or not). Not bad considering promo was interrupted by a stint in jail!
Not only does the album boast a batch of hits (“X”, “Loyal” and “New Flame”) and some high-profile collaborators (Usher, Kendrick Lamar and Jhene Aiko), it also has a pretty wicked booklet full of black-and-white Breezy pics. He incorporates crosses into each snap and shows off his impressive six-pack, which happily survived prison food intact. More »
In August, Grammy winner Kimbra
released her sophomore LP The Golden Echo
(see our review of the album here
, and purchase on iTunes here
). Expanding her project beyond just music, the New Zealand singer commissioned a series of artists to create artwork inspired by each song on her new album. The pieces were first shown at small event in Los Angeles recently, and now Idolator is premiering the work online.
Flip through the gallery of all of the artwork above, along with a corresponding track-by-track, art-piece-by-art-piece commentary from Kimbra herself. More »
Now we know why Miley Cyrus
was Instagram-ing these crazy pics of herself
wearing tiny toys, key chains and various other knick knacks back in July — she was prepping for her very first art installation, Dirty Hippie. The event took place during designer Jeremy Scott
‘s New York Fashion Week show on Wednesday (September 11), and drew the likes of Kris Jenner
, one of those other Kardashian
girls, 2 Chainz
, Tish Cyrus
, a giant plastic alien and Miley’s ever-present tongue.
The art and fashion worlds were likely rocked to their cores by this Very Important moment. Don’t believe us? Just check out 2 Chainz’s evident awe as Miley shows him “the #dirtyhippie dildo.” That gem and several others can be found in the gallery above. More »
“Sometimes this little raver likes to play sophisticated swan” is the caption Katy Perry
gave her ravishing Harper’s Bazaar
cover on Instagram and she wasn’t lying. The pop queen brings old Hollywood glamorous to a serene Asian setting in the stunning shoot. Apart from looking absolutely gorgeous, the Prism
diva opened up about the benefits of therapy and the prospect of turning 30.
“What I’ve learned is that if you don’t have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away,” she says. “I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others.” Therapy has also changed what Katy is looking for in a man. “As I’m heading into my 30s I have less time for bullshit,” the 29-year-old admits. “A lot of times I’ve ended up with people who have been intimidated by me, unfortunately. They say they’re not, but it comes out in the long run.” More »
has been unusually quiet since winding up her Monster tour
. It’s strange because the prolific diva’s annual album is already a year overdue and, with the exception of upcoming LPs from Taylor Swift
and Nicki Minaj
, there’s not a lot of happening in the pop world right now. Maybe her new shoot with the wonderfully-titled Tush
magazine is the first sign that she’s about to relaunch.
The 26-year-old serves up one of her kookiest pictorials yet, channeling Halle Berry‘s X-Men character Storm with a splash of Kerli‘s trademark Baby Spice-on-acid look thrown into the mix. RiRi always delivers the goods visually but she’s been taking things in a darker, more interesting direction lately. Hopefully, that’s a sign of where she’s going musically for R8. Peruse the pics up top. More »
busted out her boobs (again) over the weekend when she turned up at designer Alexander Wang
‘s warehouse-themed New York Fashion Week party wearing ice cream cone-shaped nipple tassels/pasties. She completed the look with pill-covered sunglasses and, according to sources
, spent most of the party twerking and making out with guests.
The frequently-topless diva kindly shared pics from the event with her Instagram followers, thus ending the great Miley Cyrus nude drought of September 2014. She kept the NSFW material coming today (September 8) by posting another quirky topless pic — this time with baked beans covering her breasts and vagina. Peruse all the pics up top and watch a raunchy video from Alexander’s party after the jump. More »
and Jay Z
‘s touching Video Vanguard Award
moment on stage together at the MTV Video Music Awards
in late-August didn’t do much to dispel those divorce rumors
for you, then perhaps these pics of the couple at this past weekend’s Made In America Festival in Los Angeles will do the trick? Artists such as Imagine Dragons
, John Mayer
, Kendrick Lamar
headlined the Los Angeles extension of the 2014 fest (Made In America also takes place each year in Philadelphia). Bey and Jay were seen attending Steve Aoki
‘s set at Los Angeles Grand Park — with LA mayor Eric Garcetti
, no less — and looking quite happy together at the American Eagle Outfitters Celebrates The Budweiser Made In America Music Festival event later in the day.
Flip through the gallery of photos above to see Beyonce and Jay Z smiling and looking quite lovey-dovey while taking in the music festival over the Labor Day weekend. More »
