Justin Bieber once described Selena Gomez as “the most elegant princess in the world” and it’s hard to disagree with his assessment given her stunning appearance at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles tonight (November 23). She oozed glamor in a figure-hugging, floor-length, backless black gown. (What a mouthful!) The 22-year-old added a flash of drama/color by wearing chunky gold earrings and bracelets.
Sel will perform new single “The Heart Wants What It Wants” for the very first time during the show. She already admitted to being nervous about singing the very personal song on Instagram but the former teen queen will, no doubt, get moral support from friends Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding. The Rock Mafia-produced break-up anthem is the first (and probably only given that her contract with Disney is up) single from her greatest hits compilation For You (due November 24). More »
Well played, Meghan Trainor. The 20-year-old got in a little promotion for new single “Lips Are Movin” — which is already top 10 on iTunes and climbing the Billboard Hot 100 — on the red carpet at tonight’s (November 23) American Music Awards in Los Angeles. It was the perfect compliment to her cute little black dress, which showcased the rising diva’s girl-next-door appeal.
Meghan is nominated for Best New Artist Of The Year, which reflects her growing status in the music industry. The newcomer went all the way to number one with her debut single “All About That Bass” and stayed there for eight non-consecutive weeks. She even managed to keep the Taylor Swift juggernaut at bay for most of them. The chart performance of “Lips Are Movin” proves that that success was no fluke. Her debut LP Title is expected to drop on January 13. More »
Jhene Aiko brought her quirky sense of style to the American Music Awards in Los Angeles tonight (November 23). The R&B diva walked the red carpet in a dark orange snakeskin-print gown, which she teamed with diamonds and romantic hair braids. She also showed off her many tattoos in the striking outfit and seemed to be having a great time — smiling and waving to fans and photographers.
The 26-year-old is nominated for Best Female R&B Artist tonight, which reflects her meteoric rise from feature creature/mixtape queen to alt-R&B darling. Jhene had a massive 2013 and 2014, reaching the top 10 on the Billboard 200 with debut EP Sail Out and debut album Souled Out. She also scored her first big hit with stream-of-consciousness anthem “The Worst”. Peruse her pics up top. More »
Fergie was one of the first big names to walk the red carpet at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles tonight (November 23). And, as usual, she put the boys on rock, rock with a sexy black dress and glamorous old Hollywood hairstyle. The Black Eye Peas frontwoman will perform her comeback single “L.A. Love” for the very first time during the show, which should be all the catchy bop needs to zoom up the charts.
After a slow start (the song is a grower), “L.A. Love” has steadily been creeping up the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes. The star-studded video, which finds Fergie driving around the City of Angels in a party bus with famous friends Kelly Osbourne, Sevyn Streeter and YG certainly helped give the Cali-repping anthem a little momentum. All she needs now is a great performance and the diva will have another smash on her hands. Check out her pics up top. More »
Yes, Madonna is now in the 47th month of recording her 13th album, which currently has a projected release date of Marchtober 2019, but the great news is that, while we all feverishly count down the days for that treasure to arrive, The Queen is constantly keeping us distracted from our own impatience via her entertaining Instagram pics. Sometimes the Material Minx posts photos of the shenanigans she’s been getting up to in the studio, while other times she’s trotting out snaps of her son, Rocco, or charming pearls of wisdom like “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team’, but there’s a ‘A’ in ‘cunt’.”
What we all truly live for, however, is the wide away of selfies Madge gifts her followers with. We carefully spent three minutes sifting through the very best our favorite #UnapologeticBitch had to offer on her favorite social platform. Have at it in the gallery above! More »
Nobody keeps it realer than K. Michelle. When R&B’s bad girl isn’t singing about her more-is-more approach to dating or pining over someone else’s man, she’s making Instagram a sexier place with her candid pics. The Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? diva takes no prisoners on social media — posting topless pics and striking eye-popping poses without a single fuck to spare. Hell, the 30-year-old even dropped it low outside the entrance of her record label to show off her thong! Respect.
When she’s not revealing her killer curves online, K. is busy promoting her sophomore LP (due December 9). So far, she’s dropped three excellent songs — lead single “Love ‘Em All” as well as soulful ballads/buzz singles “Maybe I Should Call” and “How Do You Know?” We know there’s also an ode to Drake on Anybody Wanna Buy A Heart? (or AWBAH, for short) and a country song. While we wait to hear those tunes, spend some time with the curvaceous hitmaker’s sexiest pics up top. More »
With her forthcoming LP The Pinkprint dropping next month, Nicki Minaj is stepping her promo game up! The rapper’s latest venture is starring on the cover of Complex magazine’s December 2014/January 2015 issue. In the editorial spread, the diva shows off her modelesque poses as she rocks some killer, futuristic outfits — complete with metal-plated bras and skyscraper heels.
The Pinkprint drops on December 15, and features tracks like “Bed Of Lies,” “Only” and “Pills N Potions.” View Nicki Minaj’s Complex photos in the gallery up top, and read some of her interview highlights after the jump! More »
Nicki Minaj is holding nothing back for her upcoming video for “Only,” as seen with the revealing photos she recently posted on her Instagram! The rapper took fans behind-the-scenes of the shoot, which also included song collaborators (and YMCMB labelmates) Drake and Lil Wayne. Chris Brown, the tune’s other feature, wasn’t present. It’s too bad, though, his rock-hard abs could’ve added something extra.
For the shoot, Minaj dons a super-seductive mesh bodysuit with only black lingerie underneath. She completed the outfit with intensely-high platform heels and black veil. The men kept their outfits more tame, rocking a simple jeans-and-t shirt combination. More »
Kim Kardashian tried to break the internet by showing her oily butt on the cover of Paper magazine but Solange Knowles came much closer last night (November 16) when her quirky wedding photos went viral. (That could explain why Kris Jenner jumped on Instagram to throw a little shade, but more about that later). Why did the pics cause such a stir? For starters, there’s the hipster element.
The 28-year-old diva and her 51-year-old husband-to-be Alan Ferguson rode to the ceremony on pimped-out bicycles. They also wore matching white outfits and tied the knot in a spooky/chic New Orleans venue. The newlyweds should be the absolute worst but the whole event was so flawlessly executed that you can’t help but be in awe. Other highlights include someone having the audacity to make Beyonce sit on the floor and Tina Knowles becoming a Twitter sensation for looking sexier than anyone has a right to at the age of 60.
While the wedding exuded hipster chic, the reception seemed more relaxed. Solange even entertained guests by dancing to Rae Sremmurd‘s breakthrough hit “No Flex Zone” with son Julez. (Watch their slick moves after the jump). As for Kris Jenner? Well, she clearly didn’t like the attention the Knowles clan was getting and posted a picture of her own family in all-white outfits. Needless to say, her mentions became a bloodbath. More »
The winter issue of V magazine brought together some of the most-talked about pop stars of today, including Lorde, Charli XCX, HAIM, Lykke Li and Jessie Ware. Moody alt-pop chanteuses like Tinashe, BANKS and SZA also make appearances in the feature.
The ladies star in the “Rise Above” black + white editorial spread, photographed by Chad Pitman. Each picture displays the singers’ personality, with Lorde giving sexy glam in an all-black getup, BANKS’ modelesque pose in a sharp suit and SZA smiling with huge curls surrounding her. In the issue, they all give their best advice on style, music and muses. View interview highlights after the jump and see the glamorous spread from the V #92 issue in the gallery above! More »
