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.

Beyonce Sings “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” In HBO’s ‘On The Run’ Trailer: Watch

Beyonce covers a 1966 classic in the second trailer for HBO’s On the Run special.

While dressed as a jazz singer and staring down one captive audience member, husband and touring partner Jay Z, she sings the opening lines of the Sonny Bono-penned “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” as more so inspired by Nancy Sinatra than Cher: “I was five and he was six / We rode on horses made of sticks / He wore black and I wore white / He would always win the fight…”

Then the On the Run trailer cuts to exhilarating footage from Beyonce and Jay Z’s joint tour: The stunts. The squats. The hair flips. The crowd doing the Roc-A-Fella sign. Beyonce casually pushing her husband aside, just because. While the lyrics to “Bang Bang” spell out defeat, the trailer only confirms that during On the Run, Jay Z actually plays hypeman to his wife.

Nicki Minaj Drops “Anaconda” Lyric Video: Watch

Nicki Minaj had revealed her eye-popping “Anaconda” single art to Twitter reactions, Photoshop parodies – including a few inspired by Miley Cyrus and even a heated debate over how it could influence young girls. Minaj wasn’t exactly pleased by the hullabaloo, as she showed by posting past Sports Illustrated covers featuring models baring just as much, if not more than she did (“Acceptable”).

For her new “Anaconda” lyric video, the song’s lyrics pop up and scroll across as they would in classic arcade games – all in all, a pretty cute display of Minaj’s coy lyrics. Yet all that seems like a distraction from the photos of Minaj herself. There’s selfies. There’s past publicity shots. Most importantly, there’s close-ups of her body from her other music videos — including for her kid-friendliest track “Starships.” More »

Demi Lovato first opened up about her bipolar disorder in 2012, after being diagnosed a year prior. Now, she joins the Mental Health Listening and Engagement Tour to both speak on her experiences with bipolar disorder and become a more informed advocate, as she connects with leading experts.

“I want to shine a light on the people out there who like me are learning to live well with mental illness by getting the right diagnosis and finding the right treatment plan,” the “Really Don’t Care” star says in the tour’s announcement video (above). “I want to be the most informed and powerful advocate I can be and to help people to find the courage to seek help.” More »

Screeeeeeam!

The 2014 Teen Choice Awards aired last night, which saw some of our favorite teen-pop faves winning awards as voted on by teens. Teen power!

Along with a star-studded cast of presenters last night, there was certainly no shortage of musical action on the main stage: From Demi Lovato and Cher Lloyd‘s killer live rendition of their Demi summer banger “Really Don’t Care,” to Magic!‘s chart-topping #1 “Rude,” to Rixton‘s “Wait On Me” and “Me & My Broken Heart,” to Becky G‘s infectious “Shower” all the way to Jason Derulo and his inescapable summer jams, “Wiggle” and “Talk Dirty,” the night was filled with killer live performances. (Note: Rita Ora was scheduled to hit the stage too, but was allegedly blocked by ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris from performing the song. #DRAMA!)

“Thank you all so much for voting for me. This is for my fans,” Ariana Grande said while accepting the 2014 Teen Choice Award for Choice Female Artist last night (August 10) at Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium. The event was originally scheduled to take place at the Edwin Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus in Westwood, but a reported burst pipe caused flooding in the venue just one week prior.

Grande, who is arguably the pop star of summer 2014, continued with her speech by acknowledging the recent passing of her grandfather. “Especially this last month was very rough for me, and my fans showed me the realest love and compassion and understanding and support,” Ariana said while holding her new trophy surfboard.

‘Drake Vs. Lil Wayne’ Tour Launches In Darien, New York: Watch

Drake and Lil Wayne launched their Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour in Darien, New York, to set a new precedent for co-headlining treks.

The two Young Money artists – the protege and the sage, as the trailer says – didn’t completely rely on a setlist. Instead, they had fans who downloaded the Lil Wayne Vs. Drake tour app vote on who would perform first. From there, Lil Wayne and Drake took turns performing snippets of their respective hits – and exchanging disses in efforts to “win” the Street Fighter-inspired night. (Yes, the tour is sponsored by Capcom.)

After Drake performed his part from DJ Khaled‘s “No New Friends,” his label boss joined him on stage. “I kinda remember that, but, uh, you probably was still in the wheelchair when I was making hits,” he said, a brutal way to shout out Drake’s Degrassi role and introduce his verse in “Duffle Bag Boy” by Playaz Circle, the rap duo featuring 2 Chainz (when he was still known as Tity Boi). Thanks to moves like that, Lil Wayne won the tour’s opening night.

Watch Lil Wayne and Drake’s Street Fighter-inspired introduction, the notable Degrassi diss and the live debut of Lil Wayne’s “Grindin” after the jump. More »

Taylor Swift plays a minor role in The Giver, the forthcoming film adaptation of Lois Lowry‘s 1993 novel — and until now, only seconds of her cameo have been shown. A new clip (premiered by Yahoo!) reveals that Swift’s small role as Rosemary is also pivotal.

Rosemary sits at the piano next to Jeff Bridges as the titular role, showing him how to play a song (while appearing in hologram form). Meanwhile, the real-life Giver starts explaining to his protege Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) exactly who she is and why she matters. More »

Eminem And Rihanna’s ‘Monster Tour’ Kicks Off In Pasadena, California: Watch

Eminem and Rihanna kicked off their joint Monster Tour at Pasadena, California’s Rose Bowl. The performance emphasized how both pop superstars use their music to combat their demons, related to fame and otherwise, and started with a Silence of the Lambs-inspired short film.

Rihanna visits a maximum-security prison, while accompanied by The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli. “Remember, don’t let him into your mind,” he says – referring, naturally, to Eminem, bleach-blond and slightly crazed as he was for “The Real Slim Shady.” Fortunately, Rihanna was ready for the rapper’s lashing out over cartoons and dry cereal. “You ungrateful fuck,” she says, flawlessly.

The sight’s a bit surreal at first, given how Eminem launched his career partially by blasting his TRL peers. The longer he and Rihanna shared the stage, however, for both their mega-hit collaborations (“Love the Way You Lie”), new takes on old hits (“Stan,” as debuted at Lollapalooza) and even a Paramore cover (“Airplanes,” as Rihanna’s done alone), the more the pairing seemed like a natural fit.
