It will be fascinating to hear what the duo serves up after their extended hiatus. The Veronicas’ last release — 2012′s Australia only single “Lolita” — was a mental electro-pop anthem with a massive dub-step breakdown but the material they have teased recently (like “Sugar Daddy”) sounds darker and more organic. The sisters’ two LPs still hold up remarkably well, so I’m confident their new tune will be worth the wait. See Jess and Lisa’s tweet after the jump. More »

The 24-year-old hitmaker has been taking a well-earned rest since performing at the recent MTV Video Music Awards. Rita Ora-assisted smash “Black Widow” just reached a new peak of number six on the Billboard Hot 100 last week, so a new round of promo can’t be too far away. I wonder if the rumored re-release of The New Classic is still happening. It’s not like the original is lacking in potential hits. See Iggy’s trick shot after the jump. More »

Last week, the “Work Bitch” superstar revealed (quite candidly) that she is now single on Twitter (“Ahhh the single life!”), which led to a string of TMZ stories (and a hilarious Instagram) detailing the break-up: Reportedly, ex David Lucado cheated on B, and there’s a tape involved. Or something like that. Regardless, Miss Britney Spears just ain’t got time for that foolishness and f–kery — and she’s speaking out about it.
During Sunday night’s show of Piece Of Me residency, Britney decided to speak up about the situation in an incredible mini-rant to her adoring fans: “The best thing about your boyfriend cheating on you…is that you get to go on another first date. Oh em gee, a first date! Woooooo!“ she exclaimed. Something more personal, indeed!

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 »
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 »
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 »
