Charli XCX confessed last month that she initially wrote her hit “Boom Clap” for Hilary Duff, only to to be told it wasn’t cool enough. The news “crushed” Charli XCX, though based on a new interview, Duff sounded bummed as well. Turns out, she had no idea that The Fault In Our Stars single could have been hers. “I didn’t know that I had an option to have it,” Duff says to Popjustice. “It’s my favorite song on the radio right now.”

Duff does recall that while prepping her new album, plans to write with Charli XCX didn’t pan out. She has ended up instead with “folkier-type” music, as inspired by Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers. Meanwhile, Charli XCX’s “Boom Clap” rose this week to No. 14 on Billboard’s Hot 100, making for her biggest solo hit to date. “If she wants to give it to me now, I’ll still take it!” Duff joked. Until they do work out a collaboration, here’s to hoping that the Metamorphosis star covers the song live. More »

Michelle Obama, First Lady of the United States and poster girl for The Hive, took her daughters to see Beyonce and Jay Z‘s brilliant On The Run tour in Chicago last night (July 24). The 50-year-old is a loud and proud Bey fan, having attended the “Drunk In Love” diva’s last two concert tours. They have also worked together on an anti-obesity campaign.

There’s no word if Mrs. Obama shut her eyes when Queen Bey dropped it low to “Partition” but a fellow concert-goer managed to take a snap of the First Lady and her girls having a great time in the VIP. The world’s most famous Beyonce groupie is beaming, while Sasha and Malia appear to be singing along merrily. A family that stans together, stays together! See the cute family pic after the jump.

A couple of days after Questlove called Iggy Azalea‘s summer smash “Fancy” a game-changer for hip-hop, Charli XCX has defended her collaborator’s right to rap with an American accent. “People give Iggy a hard time because she’s Australian and white and female and apparently that’s a weird thing, which I don’t get,” the “Boom Clap” hitmaker said.

“People also view me as an underdog so I think it’s cool that we came together and had this girl power moment and were No. 1 in the states for seven weeks,” she continued. “We really proved everyone wrong, which I think was really cool.” Who would she like to work with next? Charli has her eye on a Coldplay collab. “I think Chris Martin is one of the best, top line writers around at the moment. I’ve always thought his melodies are incredible.” More »

We’re just going to set this here and quietly-but-quickly back away: It’s Joan Rivers being asked by TMZ at LAX about the current Israel/Palestine conflict. This alone prompted quite the tirade from Rivers, but TMZ being TMZ, they followed up a series of questions about Joan’s opinion on the launching of rockets and the loss of innocent lives by informing the comedienne about Selena Gomez “tweet[ing] a pro-Gaza” message. (Actually, what she said was, “Please pray for those families and babies today. Please always remember what’s important in life.”)

Joan was not having it and began to hurl insults at the “Come And Get It” singer, including, “Let’s see if she can spell Palestinian!” Watch below. More »

Nicki Minaj hasn’t exactly blown the competition away with “Pills N Potions” but she’s determined to drum up interest in The Pink Print — even if it means wearing a piece of dental floss between her ass cheeks on the cover of new single “Anaconda”. The eye-popping artwork was an instant hit with fans and will provide Twitter with fodder for days to come.

The 31-year-old joined in the social media fun, sharing the best banner Google never used on Instagram. There were a plethora of “me when I saw Nicki’s new cover” tweets and a bunch of culturally insensitive clean versions. My favorite post features Drake posing seductively under the title “Anacondrake”. Mess! See the full Twitter aftermath after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea might have the haters working overtime but she continues to win. The rap diva, who recently spent eight weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Fancy”, has been selected to host a reboot of MTV’s ’90s fashion show House Of Style. The eight-episode season begins August 4 on MTV.com and wraps up at the MTV Video Music Awards.

So what can you expect from the femcee’s hosting debut? Iggy promises to show us the best vintage stores in Los Angeles, will visit the set of a Rita Ora music video (is this some sneaky “Black Widow” promo?) and introduce us to designer Jeremy Scott. Further, she will commentate at the VMAs — sharing her opinions on red carpet fashions and performances. More »

Lana Del Rey Further Explains That Iconic “My Pussy Tastes Like Pepsi-Cola” Lyric

The opening line of Lana Del Rey‘s 2012 anthem “Cola” still raises eyebrows today. “My pussy tastes like Pepsi-Cola,” she croons in her trademark Valium-addled drawl over elegant strings on the brooding Paradise cut. As far as LDR lyrics go, the meaning is fairly self-evident but the 29-year-old (another revelation — she’s a year older than we thought!) has been questioned about it at length. Because, you know, journalism.

In an interview with JJJ, Lana said “Cola” was inspired by then boyfriend Barrie-James O’Neill. “That’s just what he says!” was her simple explanation. Well, the perennially glum diva recently spoke with Rolling Stone and they dug a little deeper. ”My Dad thought ‘Cola’ was funny,” she reveals. “My mom didn’t think it was that funny.”

So what inspired the legendary lyric? ”[Barrie-James] was talking about American girls, his vision of American girls was that all their pussies tasted like Pepsi-Cola, and that they were such a dream,” the Ultraviolence songstress confides. “I thought that was the funniest fucking thing I’d ever heard.” So there you have it. Mystery solved. More »

Nick Jonas is ready to make the leap from boy band icon to fully-fledged adult pop star with new single “Chains”. While this isn’t the 21-year-old’s first solo project, it’s definitely his most convincing. The fitness fanatic follows the Justin Timberlake formula for career transformation a little too closely but everyone has to start somewhere.

Produced by Jason Evigan (his credits include Demi Lovato‘s “Heart Attack” and David Guetta‘s new hit “Lovers On The Sun”), “Chains” is a mid-tempo R&B anthem that showcases Nick’s smooth vocal. “You got me in chains for your love but I wouldn’t change,” sings the former teen star over chunky beats before the now standard breakdown. It’s a step in the right direction but no “Like I Love You”. More »
