We at Idolator are true believers in the power of love, not to mention the romance of Valentine’s Day! We’d never allow the cynical musings of certain pop stars (we’re looking at you, Ms. “The truth about love is it’s all a lie” Pink) or the lingering memory of a terrible Garry Marshall movie take… More »
Let’s be real, Idolafans: nothing exacerbates a broken heart like the prospect of another Valentine’s Day alone. If the ubiquity of hearts and flowers doesn’t get to you, the smell of chocolate and the constant reminder that everyone else is gettin’ some certainly will. It’s a painful thing to live through, and not something we… More »
Sigh. While couples everywhere will be getting all cutesy with chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day, some of us won’t be so lucky. However instead of sitting on the couch with our favorite junk food and streaming a rom-com, we’ve whipped up a list of the 10 best songs to listen to on V-Day if… More »
It’s been a year since music legend Whitney Houston died at the age of 48. In the time following her February 11, 2012 passing, performers spanning generations and genres have paid tribute to the esteemed singer.

Scoring a Grammy nod doesn’t necessarily make a song good, although it seems like the biggest music award of them all should help dictate which tracks will become pop classics. Alas, as it turns out, a lot of zeitgeist-y hits from the past few decades years didn’t win a statue on Grammy night, even though… More »
Over the years, Beyonce has dominated nearly every realm of entertainment. The former (?) Destiny’s Child member has released wildly successful solo albums, starred in films, appeared on Broadway and performed on dozens of award shows. (Not to mention the Glastonbury fest, gigs she’s done with husband Jay-Z and the presidential inaugurations she’s taken part… More »
Somewhere in the vast sprawl of New York City, Beyonce is preparing for the Super Bowl with the steely focus and unwavering dedication of a professional athlete. You see, the queen of pop, soul and several other genres has a lot riding on the high profile performance. A flawless display could set up GQ’s sexiest… More »
Independent women, single ladies and everyone in between — it’s time to celebrate! Destiny’s Child will officially be reuniting at the Super Bowl, so get ready to party like it’s 2004, football fans!

It’s officially Awards Season again and, rather predictably, everyone’s abuzz over the Academy Awards’ Best Original Song nominees — but what of the Golden Globes Best Original Song selections, we ask? No, really. Wait, come back!
Though often thought of as Oscar’s little sister — and a somewhat reliable predictor of who will… More »

Over 35,000 votes came in, and we’ve now rounded up the ten most popular of your choices. The top two — Adam Lambert’s Trespassing and Marina And The Diamonds’ Electra Heart… More »
It’s a scientific fact that the only two truly great Christmas songs written in the last thirty years are Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and Wham!‘s “Last Christmas.” (Disagree with us? Sorry, it’s science.) But while the sad reality is that every cover of Caraewey’s Yuletide standard pales in comparison to the original… More »
The 2013 Grammy Awards nominations arrived last night courtesy of an impressively weird CBS concert, but amidst the many thrilling surprises the evening packed — who among us wasn’t exhilarated by the frissons we felt upon realizing that LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” had finally received the recognition it so sorely deserves? — there were… More »
Here at Idolator, the editors have been continuously sifting through 2012’s releases and poring over tracks to suss out the best of the best. Of course, let’s face it: it was a dire year as far as consistent, solid albums are concerned. Forget the lack of a breakout smash like Adele’s 21 (which, to be… More »
Given that Adele’s 21 recently became the 21st album to sell 10 million copies in the SoundScan era (since 1991), Billboard chart sage Keith Caulfield took it upon himself to tally up the facts, the figures and the legendary crooners who make up this elite group of Diamond-status pop acts.
