The beginning of every year in the music industry is an exciting one, as festivals worldwide begin to trickle out their artist lineups! Kicking off 2015 was the biggest one of all — Coachella. The arts and music mecca revealed its anticipated roster of the most popular names in the industry, with Drake, Jack White and AC/DC headlining the three-day event.
While these mentioned artists are deserving festival toppers, there are plenty more acts to enjoy within the music-filled weekend! So, we present to you our list of artists that we’re most excited to see rock the various stages and heat up the already sweltering venue that is Indio, CA’s Empire Polo Club. From FKA Twigs to Chet Faker, there is a little something for everyone. View the gallery up top! More »
Since coming as close as anyone to breaking the internet by stripping to his underwear in Flaunt magazine, Nick Jonas has made regular appearances in fashion and lifestyle magazines — usually wearing as little clothing as possible. (The man knows his market!) There was that shirtless spread in Details, more sexiness in Attitude and some suit-modeling for NYP’s Alexa magazine. The 22-year-old now goes high fashion for Kode.
While the clothes are probably a little too eccentric for most dudes (he rocks short shorts and a mesh tank in one pic), Nick Jonas isn’t most dudes. It’s kind of annoying — but completely unsurprisingly — that he looks good in an array of outfits that Borat would think twice about wearing. The heartthrob is still promoting hit single “Jealous,” which continues to hang around the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. See his latest shoot up top. More »
Justin Bieber is on a very shirtless roll.
While the Internet stays recovering from his recent Calvin Klein underwear spread currently doing the rounds, the heartthrob is also featured in another black and white spread this month, this time for V Magazine.
The new spread will be featured in the magazine’s upcoming V93 music issue, which also features acts like Tinashe, Sam Smith, Jessie Ware and FKA twigs.
The young superstar was photographed and interviewed by fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld, during which he revealed that he’s got more career plans in mind. “I want to keep creating music for my fans. One day I hope to make strides into movies and fashion as well. I want to share my creativity with the world,” he says inside the issue. He also speaks out about social media, for which he is grateful: ” I was discovered on YouTube. I use Twitter, Instagram, Shots, and Fahlo to communicate with my fans on a daily basis. Things would be totally different without it,” he explained to Lagerfeld.

The 41st annual People’s Choice Awards kicked off at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles earlier this afternoon (January 7) and a small (but stylish) group of music nominees walked the red carpet. While there was no sign of pop/hip-hop heavy-hitters Nicki Minaj, Sam Smith and Iggy Azalea, the who’s who of country showed up. Lady Antebellum arrived early, as did The Band Perry and Hunter Hayes.
One major pop/rock act to walk to red carpet was Fall Out Boy. The band goofed around with Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia Di Rossi, while Pete Wentz merrily showed off his bottle blond hair. As for the ladies? Disney starlet Bella Thorne, who dropped her debut EP Jersey in November, was one of the few pop divas to strut her stuff. She looked particularly chic in form-fitting black suit. See all the pics up top. More »
Blue Ivy was famous before she was even born. As Beyonce and Jay Z‘s first child, she was destined to lead a life in the public eye but her superstar parents have done an admirable job of letting her have a (relatively) normal and anonymous childhood. Queen Bey celebrated the infant’s third birthday today (January 7) by posting a picture of a birthday cake with a humble candle and a shiny balloon. No doubt, they have something special in mind for later on.
To celebrate the birth of Blue Ivy, who holds the record for being the youngest person to chart on the Billboard R&B chart with her wails on Hov’s “Glory,” we’ve put together a gallery of some of the birthday girl’s cutest moments. There are adorable pics of the three-year-old kissing her mom, being carried by her dad and stealing the show at auntie Solange‘s glamorous wedding. Check out the sweet happy snaps up top. More »
The BBC was forced to issue an apology after Rita Ora trotted out a fair amount of cleavage for the cameras on UK evening program The One Show this week. Ora, who is replacing 2014 The Voice UK coach Kylie Minogue, was making a promotional appearance with co-stars Tom Jones, will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson ahead of The Voice‘s return this weekend. She is, of course, no stranger to whipping out her cans.
The One Show and the BBC reportedly received over 400 complaints from viewers, including this gem: “Isn’t it about time the BBC had a dress code? I do not want to see her boobs hanging out on a family programme. I find it quite disgraceful.” More »
In her ultra-sexy 2015 calendar, Nicki Minaj posed in a skimpy red bikini in front of the American flag. But for the January issue of Rolling Stone, though, the rapper tones down the raunchiness just a touch while still being patriotic. It’s surprising actually, seeing how the magazine’s editorial spread is shot by the infamous Terry Richardson!
The “Feelin’ Myself” diva flaunts her boobs in a tight tank, snarls while rocking a sexy black lingerie set and even flashes a smile with the photographer. View the photos in the gallery up top, and read highlights from the rapper’s interview after the jump! More »
Perhaps she’s just feeling inspired by her most recent soundtrack contribution, but Big Eyes darling Lana Del Rey has gotten into the habit of flaunting her gorgeous face for us on Instagram as of late.
The Ultraviolence beauty, who is currently hard at work recording a follow-up to her 2014 record, is known for her incredibly chic and glamorous photo shoots, which is why the recent stream of intimate selfies has proven be a particular delight for fans across social media.
From looking cute in pigtails in the backseat of a car to a quick selfie session while in London waiting to meet up with her future Endless Summer Tour partner Courtney Love to getting up close and personal in bed, LDR looks beautiful in any setting.

Zendaya is known for being something of a maverick when it comes to fashion (her disco era Diana Ross-inspired 2014 American Music Awards ensemble was everything) — a reputation she cements with an edgy Teen Vogue cover and multi-page spread. The 18-year-old serves military chic in desert-set shoot, rocking army pants, striped t-shirts, combat jackets and helmets. It’s a look she pulls off effortlessly.
In the accompanying interview, the “Replay” diva opens up about the sound she’s hoping to achieve on her sophomore LP. “I want to make R&B with a touch of pop, rather than pop with a touch of R&B,” she says. “It’ll be a little more urban, something my fellow 18-year-olds are going to want to bump to in their cars rather than feel like they have to turn it down as soon as someone else gets in. I want them to be able to be like, ‘Yo, I’m listening to Zendaya!’” New music is expected to drop in early 2015 via Republic Records. See her stylish Vogue shoot up top. More »
Sam Smith wasn’t the only one to take a sunny vacation with their boyfriend over the New Year holiday. As evidenced by her recent round of Instagram photos, Lea Michele jetted off to the beaches of Cabo San Lucas recently. And according to Entertainment Tonight, the Glee star had her boyfriend, aspiring actor Matthew Paetz, along for the festivities.
Above are eight photos of Lea enjoying a nice getaway ahead of this Friday’s (December 9) two-hour premiere of the sixth and final season of Glee. Fox moved the show from its Tuesday night time slot in Season 5 to its new night, Friday, for its remaining 13 episodes. More »
