“I was trying to make the perfect album,” Nas says of his 1994 debut Illmatic, in a just-released trailer for a documentary celebrating exactly that. Directed by One9, Nas: Time Is Illmatic details the creative process behind the Queensbridge, N.Y. rapper’s stunning debut, which received The Source‘s perfect, five-mic rating and became one of the most acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time.

Pharrell, Alicia Keys and Busta Rhymes all appear in the Time Is Illmatic trailer to help speak for Illmatic‘s influence. “It’s one of the best albums of all time,” Keys says. More »

This morning, The Today Show was in full-on Arianator mode.

My Everything pop darling Ariana Grande took over the stage this AM in a cute metallic skirt and top and matching stilettos (and that ponytail, of course!) to perform a whole bunch of tracks from her brand new LP.

The set included summer smash “Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea),” “Break Free (feat. Zedd),” a bit of “Bang Bang (feat. Jessie J and Nicki Minaj)” and the Diana Ross-sampling “Break Your Heart Right Back (feat. Childish Gambino).”

She also sat down with Matt Lauer to discuss her career, both as a pop star and Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon, staying close to her friends and family and whether or not she’s got a boyfriend (“I’m happy!” she quickly deflected). Check out all the performances, as well as the interview, after the jump. More »

It’s been a huge week for Miss Ariana Grande, what with her powerhouse opening performance at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, the premiere of the video for “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj and the release of her highly anticipated sophomore album, My Everything. And yes, that girl just keeps on going!

Last night, Ari hit the stage at Radio City Music Hall in NYC during the live results show for America’s Got Talent to perform her Zedd-assisted summer smash, “Break Free.” Rocking a cute pair of kitty ears and her signature big ponytail and thigh-high boots look, the tiny diva-in-training crooned her way through the tune up and down the stage, providing some sassy hip thrusts and hair flips along the way. Did she make you proud, Arianators?

It’s been a big week for Miss Betty Who, that’s for sure.

After the announcement of her debut LP Take Me When You Go, the singer-songstress just appeared on the Today Show stage this morning to kick off the day with the Movement EP song that started it all: “Somebody Loves You.”

After some small talk about her shoes, hair and the origin of her name (fun fact: it was originally the title of a song she wrote!), Miss Who launched into a spirited performance performance of her synth-y jam, bouncing around and crooning to a fan-filled studio audience. She’s got a lot to be happy about as of late: She’s heading out on tour with Katy Perry down under for the Prismatic World Tour in November.

One of the highlights of last night’s (August 26) final episode ever of Chelsea Lately — aside from seeing host Chelsea Handler nude in the shower with Ellen DeGeneres, of course — was watching Miley Cyrus cover Roy Orbison‘s aptly-titled classic “It’s Over.” The recent MTV VMAs Video Of The Year winner was every bit the class act in her red pants and white fringe jacket, doing Orbison justice by belting out the Top 10 hit from 1964 with her stunning vocal range on full display. Now this is the Miley we all love.

Later, in the show’s final minutes, Cyrus joined Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Avril Lavigne and a slew of others on stage for a riff on “We Are The World” titled “Goodbye To E!”, which sent Handler’s show off into the late night one last time.

For seven years, Chelsea Handler‘s crass, ballsy humor brought an air of uniqueness to late night TV — she was, after all, a female in an otherwise male-dominated arena. Alas, her series, Chelsea Lately, came to an end last night (August 27) in a star-filled night that saw Ellen DeGeneres confronting a nude Handler in the shower, the trio of Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Mary McCormack staging an intervention of sorts with the hostess, Chelsea’s ex 50 Cent performing with G-Unit and Miley Cyrus covering Roy Orbison‘s “It’s Over.”

For the big finale, multiple past guests of the show and friends of Handler’s — including Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes and Avril Lavigne — joined her in riffing on “We Are The World” with the farewell song “Goodbye To E!” More »

With “Shake It Off,” Taylor Swift has essentially re-written a beloved cheerleader’s anthem to give everyone a reason to let loose: Ballerinas? Yes. Break dancers? Sure. That girl on the bleachers? Of course. So, even though the Mark Romanek-directed video has sparked a healthy debate over how inclusive the video may be – its YouTube still is of Swift, gawking at the sight of twerkers after she crawled beneath their legs – the lead 1989 single was bound to catch on.

Just a few days after its premiere, a dance company has already paid tribute to “Shake It Off.” At a Raising Cane’s restaurant in Lewisville, Texas, dozens of members from Dimensions Dance Company broke out into a flash mob. Four of them posed as ballet dancers. One did a backflip in the middle of the floor. Meanwhile, a young blond woman alternated between dancing flawlessly and appearing overwhelmed, just as Swift did in her own video. At the song’s end, she even did the awkward curtsy.

Swift could not have been more pleased by the end result. “So @markromanek just sent me this and I’m hyperventilating with joy over it,” she said on Twitter. See the “Shake If Off” flash mob below. More »

Eminem and Rihanna became the latest pop stars to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge during the sixth and final date of their co-headlining Monster Tour. To cheers from the sold-out, 45,000 crowd at his hometown of Detroit, Eminem accepted mentor Dr. Dre‘s call and had Rihanna herself dump ice-cold water over his head. Eminem then challenged producer Rick Rubin, hypeman Mr. Porter and RiRi herself – though not without some protests from the latter.

“I’m from the islands. I don’t do this ice shit,” Rihanna said. (We know, Rihanna.) “This ice shit doesn’t work for me – wait. That’s a fucking pot!”

Robyn and Royksopp are doing it, and doing it, and doing it well.

Following the release of the space-age video for their colossal collabos “Monument” and “Do It Again,” the Swede-pop tag-team has continued to dazzle audiences across the world live (and on TV!) on their Do It Again Tour.

Now, as they head through the Northeast with their tour, the pop powerhouses stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform their killer title track. In her usual fashion, Robyn rocked the house in sky-high boots and a killer oversized jacket and sweatshirt look, energetically hopping all around the stage. At the very end, Royksopp’s Svein hops out on stage and shows off his impressive robo-chops, bouncing along with Robyn and delivering a killer finish to their performance.
