Did you feel that festive feeling this week? The Christmas season is truly upon us — and now that Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Kelly Clarkson and Leona Lewis serenaded us at the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony, it’s really official.
But the pop releases haven’t stopped just yet! Our beloved ringleader Britney Spears… More »
The turkey leftovers have been cleared out, the tree is up and we’re feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of cards that need to be dropped in the mail this month. A good excuse to procrastinate on the latter: We decided that no website is complete at this time of year without a festive playlist,… More »
While we were drowning in a sea of gravy and cheap scotch over Thanksgiving weekend, it looks like Syron was studying up on Rihanna’s recent style choices, as the British about-to-pop singer unleashed a new video and new ‘do.
From the first few seconds of her “Colour Me In” video, it’s clear this is a revamped Syron we’re… More »
“Dallas, it feels so good to be home,” Selena Gomez said at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas on Thanksgiving. Just a day after she wrapped her world tour, the Stars Dance diva headed to her hometown for a flashy halftime performance.
Backed by a live band, a dance troupe and cheerleaders, she shimmied,… More »
Thanksgiving may bring family and friends together, but odd pairings dominated the floats shown at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Fifth Harmony sang their new single “Better Together” on one sponsored by Goldfish Crackers, while Fall Out Boy performed “Alone Together” nearby the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Meanwhile Ariana Grande riffed on Wham!‘s “Last Christmas” More »
Ah, the power of The Voice. In a poll released Tuesday, 31% of Americans revealed that they would like to share Thanksgiving dinner with Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. That famed bromance even put the coaches ahead of the first family, which is really saying something. No comment was to be made by Christina Aguilera… More »
Warner Music, Universal and Sony have teamed up for Songs for the Philippines, a 39-song compilation made in efforts to raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Songs by The Beatles, including a remastered version of “Across The Universe,” open and close the generations-spanning pop album.
Other classic hits featured on Songs include… More »
Demi Lovato has been teasing her “Neon Lights” video all week, and now that the clip is finally here, it’s nice to see that it doesn’t disappoint — not one bit. (It’s probably my favorite Demi video to date, aside from the peerless, wrenching visual for “Skyscraper.”)
Featuring a blue-haired Demetria in various darkened… More »
Kanye West makes for an unusual guest on talk shows, because of his loud candor but also the cognitive dissonance between how he appears on a couch and portrays himself in Yeezus. In the album he’s anti-pop if not anti-establishment, as he snarls through certain lines, imagines himself pillaging through the Hamptons and demands that… More »
Happy ARTPOP Week! Yes, this week was full o’ Miss Lady Gaga: From her crazy #ARTRAVE release party in New York, to the official release of ARTPOP (check out our review!), to her candid interview with Howard Stern, it was all about Mother Monster’s Reverse Warholian Expedition.
But that’s not all — there… More »
Lady Gaga has toyed with nudity — and revealed a wide range of influences, from Botticelli to Juvenile — in the months leading up to the release of new album ARTPOP. She finds yet another compelling way to strip herself down in the album’s final buzz single, “Dope.”
Britney Spears will debut her next single “Perfume” today (November 3) at 6 p.m. EST on Facebook. Meanwhile, a leaked snippet helps to show exactly why it’s significant to Spears.
Stars — they really are just like us. How many times have you found yourself in this situation — am I right, ladies? Yes, down-to-earth, normal human people Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have filed a lawsuit against a gentleman by the name of Chad Hurley for leaking video footage of their marriage proposal.
It’s a bit nastier than just that,… More »
“Forget You” songstress and perpetually underrated pop star Cady Groves released a new song yesterday called “Take My Hand,” and it’s a stunner: A midtempo ballad with acoustic guitar, a skittering backbeat and an emotional vocal delivery from Cady. Produced by Kevin Rudolf (Selena Gomez, Nelly Furtado), the track was written in honor of Groves’ brother Casey, who passed… More »
Swedish-Australian songstresses Say Lou Lou are one of those rare pop acts that don’t seem to be capable of releasing anything subpar: Each song is a pristine little pop gem, with perfectly dreamy production that swirls around their high, frosty vocals.
M.I.A. has twisted the Credo That Drake Built for her Matangi track “Y.A.L.A” (as in, “You Always Live Again”) which is a sly, if nonsensical, twist on the “You only live once” rallying cry of Generation Y.O.L.O. Maya posted a preview of the song on her Soundcloud, accompanied by the tweet, “If you only live… More »
Tegan And Sara made one of the best pop records of the year with their impeccable Heartthrob — its only shortcoming was that it was too short — which is why their new song, “Shudder To Think,” serves as such an excellent bonus. A b-side taken from the soundtrack for the upcoming Matthew McConaghuey vehicle The Dallas Buyers Club, the song features… More »
Here are the highlights of the video for The Wanted’s new single “Show Me Love (America)”: Max George in a police uniform. Got it? Good — we’re all clear.
No, but really! The boys of The Wanted are back with a new visual for their latest single, a big, swooning orchestral number, and the black-and-white video… More »
Justin Bieber has made known to #Beliebers that he loves hip-hop, through photos, video selfies, appearances and (actually pretty great) bonafide collaborations. According to famed house DJ Michael Woods, Bieber’s love for such music may have inspired his latest nightclub scuffle.
On October 10, Woods launched an Asian tour at Seoul nightclub The… More »
