As a woman of the people, RiRi kindly posted a bunch of pictures from the steamy spread on her Instagram account this afternoon (April 28). It’s impossible to pick a favorite because she looks impeccable in all of them but nobody does the From Here To Eternity sandy beach pose better than Rihanna.

While most of the interview is dedicated to CiCi’s impending motherhood (“it feels good to not have to wonder whether your abs are tight enough”), she does talk about new music. The “Body Party” singer claims an album is coming “really soon” and promises that the as-yet untitled opus will be her best yet. “I will go on record saying so.” More »
The “Lookin’ Ass” diva has really embraced busty selfies. She went on a posting spree a couple of days ago and picked up where she left off last night (April 23) by sharing eye-popping pics in a clingy white top. We’ve seen a lot more of Nicki’s two biggest hits in the past, so I guess this is kind of demure by her standards. No doubt she will up the ante closer to the album release date. More »
When it comes to her own fashion sense, while not working, Sky pretty much sticks with what she knows. “I still go to all the same stores I went to in high school,” she told Idolator earlier this month. “Sometimes I do like having nice clothes, but most of my clothes are not designer clothes.”

The 21-year-old’s latest NEO range is cute and casual. In other words, perfect for summer. Selena models shorts, skinny jeans and some killer kicks. She looks like the extremely hot girl-next-door and I think that’s the whole point. The pics of her taking selfies are adorable and she even indulges in some painting.

You see, one of the many fascinating things about the girl formerly known as Lizzie Grant is the grey area between herself and the brilliant character she created. Was her apparent state of intoxication and bizarre behavior (more about that later) part of Lana Del Rey’s doomed beauty queen persona or did she just overindulge before the show? I don’t know and, to be honest, I really don’t care. The 27-year-old was on-point vocally and was born to perform against the quintessentially Cali neon-lit palm trees that surround the stage. As far as I’m concerned her theatrics (or live mishaps) only heightened the experience.
After driving the monstrous crowd — Lana had people squished like sardines from fence to fence — into a frenzy with “Cola”, the platinum-selling artist moved on to Paradise EP highlight “Body Electric”. The big-haired diva roamed the boards pouting and preening like one of the ’50s starlets she so admires before delivering the set’s first real moment with “Blue Jeans”. Which was swiftly followed by an even bigger moment. Namely, the world premiere of much-anticipated new single “West Coast”. More »
From the moment the 27-year-old hit the stage rocking a giant afro and bright orange ensemble, there was no doubt that Solange was going to inject some soul into the festival. She posed and preened like a ’70s pin-up girl while belting out True highlights “Don’t Let Me Down” and “Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work” before demanding the crowd grind along to “Bad Girls”. The alt-R&B darling didn’t have to ask twice.
Once the ratchetivity had been raised to boiling point, Sol-Angel suggested that now was as good a time as any to blaze (hey, it’s California) and delivered a raucous rendition of 2009 single “T.O.N.Y.”. It was a surprising addition to the setlist (the focus was on new material) but nowhere near as unexpected as her heartfelt dedication to Kate Bush — she called her a genius, among other compliments — and subsequent cover of the English diva’s seminal 1985 hit “Cloudbusting”.

It’s probably for the best then, that Ella’s live show has evolved almost as radically as her standing in the industry over the past half a year. While she was previously happy to lurk in the shadows of a dimly lit stage and let her music speak do the talking, the 17-year-old now puts on a real show. She has dazzling projections, giant props and even a quirky electronic introduction at her disposal but the experience was still strangely intimate as Lorde humbly expressed her disbelief at being at Coachella and swore like a truck driver during her frequent chats with the crowd.
As for the music? Well, that velvety voice never wavers. New Zealand’s finest export howled like a bashee as her long locks were blown around by huge gusts of wind and dirt — belting out obscure pre-fame tracks like “Biting Down”, Pure Heroine highlights (“Tennis Court” and “White Teeth Teens”) and, of course, her massive hits. She worked her now trademark crab-claw choreography for all its worth during “Team” and had everyone chanting along to “Royals”, which was easily one of the festival’s defining moments. More »
It’s a safe assumption that Beyonce came to support sibling Solange Knowles, who was scheduled to play in the Gobi tent later in the day. I kept an eye out for Bey during Sol-Angel’s set but she was conspicuously absent from the venue. But then, out of nowhere, the game-changing diva practically stormed the stage to join her little sister for the finale — an absolutely euphoric rendition of “Losing You”. Watch the Knowles sisters dance up a storm after the jump. More »
The entire 50 minute set was unmissable but highlights included synth-drenched Business Casual lead single “Night By Night” and 2007 fan favorite “Tenderoni”, which still drags hands into the air and gets feet moving. The Canadian electro-duo also promoted looming LP White Women by performing a couple of tantalizing tunes. A well-deserved commercial breakthrough can’t be too far away. More »
