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 »
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

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 »
