A representative for Ariana Grande has denied the authenticity of nude photos claiming to be of the singer, in part of a massive leak that occurred August 31. “The photos are completely fake,” the rep said to BuzzFeed.

Grande was among more than 100 celebrities targeted in the leak. Nude and risque photos claiming to be of her, Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Justice and Kate Upton initially surfaced August 31 on online bulletin board 4chan. After confirming that the photos of Lawrence are indeed real, reps for the actress say that her team has taken action: “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.” More »

5 Michael Jackson Songs That Charted Higher Internationally Than In The US

Read our review of Michael Jackson's 'Xscape' album. Read More »

Today (August 29) would have been Michael Jackson‘s 56th birthday. It boggles the mind to think what treasures the King of Pop could have created if he were still alive but his legacy is so incredibly vast that there’s always something new to discover. To celebrate the life of the gloved genius, I’ve put together a list of five singles that performed considerably better overseas than at home.

It’s hard to fathom how classic tracks like 1995′s environmental awareness-raising “Earth Song” could be the highest-selling MJ single of all time in the UK but not chart on the Billboard Hot 100. That has a lot to do with the way charts were compiled in the ’90s and the lack of a physical release but it still feels completely wrong. Discover over such cases after the jump. More »

Miley Cyrus Is Semi-Topless (Of Course) In The Latest Pic To Emerge From Her ‘V’ Magazine Shoot

Bless Miley Cyrus. Just when things were starting to get a little dull on the interwebs, the retired twerker posed nude for V magazine and gave gossip hounds and perverts a reason for living. She can now add humanitarian to her long list of accomplishments! So far we’ve seen the (fairly tame) cover and a censored black-and-white nude but more pics are finally emerging from the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed shoot.

In one new pic, the 21-year-old rocks a bath robe and thigh-high boxing boots. In another, Miley holds a mouth-shaped purse against her vagina. It’s basically the high-fashion equivalent of her infamous Terry Richardson shoot. If you’re wondering why the hitmaker is posing nude again, your guess is as good as mine. It’s not like she’s actively promoting Bangerz (that fourth single is long overdue), so I guess the pop princess is basically losing her clothes for shits and giggles at this point. Rock on! See the pics after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue’s “Confide In Me” Is 20: See Steve Anderson’s Tweets About The Recording Process

Kylie Minogue staged one of the most impressive career reinventions of all time when “Confide In Me” dropped on this day (August 29) in 1994. After releasing four massively successful albums of (glorious) bubblegum pop, the Australian diva switched labels and reemerged with a haunting Brothers In Rhythm-produced indie-pop anthem that still seethes and seduces 20 years later.

Despite the startling change of genre, “Confide In Me” was an instant hit. It became the pop icon’s first number one record in Australia since 1988 and landed at number two on the UK chart. It even managed to find an audience in the US — reaching number 39 on the Billboard Club Chart. More importantly, the song finally showcased Kylie’s vocal ability (there was genuine surprise that she could, you know, actually sing) and established her as a credible artist.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Confide In Me”, Steve Anderson (one half of Brothers In Rhythm) shared some secrets about the recording process on Twitter. For starters, did you know that there’s a gated didgeridoo in the “stick or twist” breakdown? Mind blown! He also posted the original lyric sheet (above) and revealed that the much-loved B-side “If You Don’t Love Me” was recorded in one take. Learn all these is to know about the classic hit after the jump. More »

Lana Del Rey‘s Fashion cover arrived way back in July (along with a portion of the accompanying interview) but more pictures from the glamorous shoot have finally surfaced online. After presenting a more casual, low-key look for most of the Ultraviolence era, it’s great to see the 29-year-old all dolled up again. It’s like a mini-Born To Die revival.

The 10-page spread (where are the other pics?) appears to be have been photographed in an old mansion or elegant country house. There’s a smoldering pic of Lana grasping a bedpost and a couple of her posing outside against stone walls. She looks amazing in all of them but the snap of her rocking the royal blue cape from the cover wins. See it for yourself after the jump. More »

Miley Cyrus recently posed nude for V magazine and the world makes sense again. I mean, there’s only so many scary selfies and semi-disturbing pet pig pics you can flick through without missing the diva’s scandalous unclothed antics of 2013. Earlier today (August 28) she posted a preview of the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed shoot but it was heavily censored. Happily, she just shared a more explicit version.

While the 21-year-old’s boobs are still covered, this time by well-placed smiley faces, it’s still fairly confronting. She looks gorgeous (and the bed of stuffed animals is a nice touch) but the uncensored image is going to be her raunchiest nude yet. Miley is currently riding high on praise for bringing a not quite homeless man to last weekend’s MTV VMAs. See the full picture after the jump. More »

Motherhood hasn’t mellowed Lil’ Kim one iota. The Queen Bee returned with a vengeance by scalping Nicki Minaj in scathing remixes of Beyonce‘s “***Flawless” and Rae Sremmurd‘s “No Flex Zone”. Today (August 28), she turns down the hate on a short — it only goes for 55 seconds! — but enjoyable overhaul of Iggy Azalea‘s summer smash “Fancy”.

“Fly girl I should have my own airline, Chanel belt couple thousand on my waistline,” Kim raps over that unmistakeable beat. “I might waste money but I don’t waste time.” It’s frustrating that she didn’t deliver a full remix because this is really cute. Hopefully Iggy appreciates the love and invites the hip-hop legend to join her on a new song in the not-too-distant future. Listen after the jump. More »

Throwing a party this weekend but have no idea what music to play? Stop stressing, David Guetta‘s got you! The French producer has kindly composed a 60-minute megamix featuring the biggest dance hits of 2014 (with a couple of golden oldies thrown into for good measure) especially for Labor Day parties. And it’s pretty hard to fault his selections.

The hour-long floorfiller kicks off with a double shot of recent Guetta singles (“Shot Me Down” and “Bad”) before transitioning into Afrojack‘s “Ten Feet Tall”. That’s followed by Calvin Harris“Summer” and the 46-year-old’s own smash “Lovers On The Sun”. Other highlights include Clean Bandit‘s “Rather Be” and Coldplay‘s “A Sky Full Of Stars”. Listen to the monster mix after the jump. More »

Joe Jonas Is Feeling “Young & Reckless”: Listen To The Previously Unreleased Track

Aug 28th, 2014 // Comment
Nick Jonas Talks
We spoke with Nick Jonas about "Jealous" and his debut LP. Read More »

With hype building about Nick Jonas‘ new soul-pop sound and imminent LP, it’s easy to forget that older brother Joe Jonas tried to make a similar transition to solo stardom in 2011 with (largely) electro-pop opus Fastlife. The album didn’t perform as well as he (or his fans) had hoped but there are still plenty of gems to be found among the Danja and Hit-Boy-produced tracks.

That makes the arrival of “Young & Restless” cause for celebration. Jonas Brothers internet scholars (ie. crazy fans) are in agreement that the song is an unused demo from the Fastlife sessions and I’m inclined to agree because of the production and subject matter. I’m pretty sure Joe’s new material would have a more somber tone. Anyway, it’s still well worth a listen. Check out “Young & Restless” after the jump. More »
