Miley Cyrus’ Selfies Are Works Of (Highly Disturbing) Art: See Her 12 Scariest Self-Portraits

I’ve seen horror movies that are less frightening than Miley Cyrus‘ Instagram account. The 21-year-old’s ability to turn a simple selfie into a (creepy) work of art is unprecedented. As is her filter game. Seriously, where do you even an app that makes you look like you’re auditioning for The Exorcist reboot? (I’m asking for a friend).

But there’s more to Miley’s frightening self-portraits than filter trickery. The Bangerz diva can seemingly roll her eyes into the back of her head at the drop of a hat and turn just about anything into an unholy prop. It’s actually a neat trick that she should explore further when designing her next album cover. Peruse the serial twerker’s peerless selfies up top. More »

The Art Of ‘Ultraviolence’: 9 Promo Pics For Lana Del Rey’s New LP

With the June 17 release of Lana Del Rey‘s much-hyped Ultraviolence edging ever closer, now is as good a time as any to reflect on the LP’s stunning visual element. The 27-year-old has completely reinvented herself yet again. Gone is the cloying glamour of Born To Die. Instead, the queen of sadcore opts for a more organic look, which is reflected in her still dark and mysterious promo pics.

The common thread between the eras is the distinct retro feel. While the “Young & Beautiful” diva channelled the ’50s on her debut LP, she now evokes the seedy ’70s with her new style and music. Get in the mood for what promises to be one of the best albums of 2014 by perusing Lana’s subtle but vaguely ominous Ultraviolence photos up top. More »

Jennifer Lopez’s Sexiest “First Love” Video Clip Screengrabs: 16 Pics

Jennifer Lopez unveiled her super chic/sexy “First Love” video today (May 29) and raised temperatures wherever there is an internet connection with her raunchy desert antics. To celebrate the ultimate triple threat’s breathtaking visual, I’ve curated a gallery of her sexiest moments. Which wasn’t that hard given the seductive source material.

Skylar Grey Shows Off Her Tattoos (By Posing Topless) For ‘Inked Magazine’: 7 Pics

The last time we heard from Skylar Grey, she was lending her voice to David Guetta‘s international dance hit “Shot Me Down”. Things have been a bit slow since then but the singer/songwriter will, no doubt, get people talking with her hoodlum-themed, semi-topless shoot for Inked magazine. It definitely makes a statement!

The creative genius behind Eminem and Rihanna‘s “Love The Way You Lie” (among many other hits) poses in various states of undress in a trailer park. In one memorable shot, Skylar appears to be wearing transparent panties. As a fan of body art and underrated pop divas, I think she looks phenomenal and eagerly await the follow-up to 2013′s Don’t Look Down. More »

Billboard Music Awards 2014: The Leading Ladies Of Pop Stun On The Red Carpet

The leading ladies of pop owned the red carpet at tonight’s (May 18) Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas. Jennifer Lopez looked like a goddess in red, Shakira stunned in blue and Nicki Minaj brought out her two biggest hits. They were a hard act to follow but the rest of the girls certainly gave it their best shot.

Australian rap diva Iggy Azalea glammed up in a figure-hugging red gown, while “Fancy” collaborator Charli XCX went for an all-black goth look. Cher Lloyd and budding Disney diva Lucy Hale both opted for soft and pretty colors. Meanwhile, Brazilian babe Claudia Leite and Houston songstress Kelly Rowland went full vamp and showed their cleavage. More »

Billboard Music Awards 2014: The Men Of Pop Stroll The Red Carpet

While the leading ladies of pop garnered most of the attention on the red carpet at tonight’s (May 18) Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, the gents held their own. The hottest look of the night was white with Austin Mahone, 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa all following the trend. It’s hard to pick a winner but the teen star’s jacket was pretty tight.

Of course, some dudes went for a more traditional approach. Ricky Martin and John Legend both looked suave in black and blue suits respectively. Country crooner Luke Bryan kept it similarly formal in a light colored dinner jacket, while Jack Antonoff (of Fun. and now Bleachers) served hipster chic by teaming his suit with a baseball hat. Well played. More »

Billboard Music Awards 2014: Nicki Minaj Almost Had A Wardrobe Malfunction

Nicki Minaj brought out the big guns on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in Las Vegas tonight (May 18). The busty babe almost spilled out of her figure-hugging black dress. In fact, she had to stop for a moment and readjust her breasts in order to prevent a Janet Jackson Super Bowl moment. I’m sure the photographers weren’t complaining.

The rap diva, who promised to drop her new single this week during last night’s Powerhouse performance, looked absolutely stunning. Toning down the clown make-up and fright wigs has turned out to be a genius idea. Nicki is looking sexier and classier than ever. Expect to see a lot more of her over the next couple of weeks as promo for her third LP The Pink Print heats up. More »

Billboard Music Awards 2014: Shakira Stuns In Blue

Shakira sexed up the red carpet at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas in a fitted blue dress. The Colombian goddess looked typically flawless as she made her way into the venue, stopping to wave at fans in the crowd. She has been busy on the award circuit lately — going the extra mile to promote her recently released self-titled LP.

The blond bombshell will perform an unspecified song at tonight’s (May 18) event. The safest bet is current US single “Empire”, which is turning out to be something of a slow burn hit, but she could surprise us and perform international single “Dare (La La La)”. That song is being used to promote the 2014 World Cup and is certain to become a massive hit in her biggest markets (Europe and South America). More »

Billboard Music Awards 2014: Jennifer Lopez Is Ravishing In Red

Nobody works a red carpet like Jennifer Lopez. She arrived at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas looking absolutely flawless from head to toe. That’s pretty much normal for J.Lo but she upped the ante — even by her own lofty standards — by wearing a flowing wine-colored gown that was simultaneously restrained and very, very sexy.

The 44-year-old will be honored with the Icon Award at tonight’s event for her achievements in the music industry. To celebrate that impressive achievement, Jennifer is set to perform twice. She will debut new single “First Love” and then join frequent collaborator Pitbull for World Cup anthem “We Are One (Ole Ola)”. While you prepare to be slayed, peruse her pics up top. More »

From “Vision Of Love” To “Thirsty”, Mariah Carey’s 16 Best Single Covers

Mariah Carey breathed new life into her Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse album campaign by dropping “Thirsty” earlier this week. The super catchy club banger not only hit the spot musically, it also delivered yet another piece of visual art in the form of a sexy, sassy and possibly CGI-generated single cover. It’s outrageous and completely over-the-top. In other words, vintage Mimi.

That got me thinking about all the amazing single covers that went before it. Who can forget the microphone stand-grabbing drama of “Vision Of Love” or the quirky wet seal styling of “Obsessed”? Mariah’s more-is-more approach to artwork deserves its own coffee table book but until that happens, find my 16 favorite Mimi covers up top.
