If there’s one thing OneRepublic have proven in the grand scheme of all things pop, it’s that they are the masters of the slow-burning single. Often their hits — think “Good Life” and “Counting Stars” — take several months, or even a year, to simmer before blowing up big on the charts. But the Ryan Tedder-led band seem to be bucking their own trend with current single “Love Runs Out.”

The upbeat, piano-driven number has been gaining momentum since its release in April, and last night Tedder & Co. hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform the track on the outdoor stage. Watch OneRepublic do that one above, then head below to catch them serving up “Counting Stars.” More »

With tickets for Demi Lovato‘s World Tour about to go on sale, it’s time for her to get the word out there that this is one multi-tasking diva who’s one hell of an entertainer you shouldn’t be missing out on live. To get her fans pumped, the songbird hit up the Good Morning America stage in New York’s Central Park this morning for performances of “Neon Lights,” “Heart Attack” and “Really Don’t Care.” And, surprise — Cher Lloyd, whose album Sorry I’m Late just arrived last week, was on hand to join Demi for the latter.

Demi Lovato Performs “Really Don’t Care,” Talks Mermaids And Aliens On ‘Late Night’: Watch

Last night, singer-songwriter Demi Lovato appeared as a musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers for what turned out to be a pretty entertaining interview to say the least. While the pop star was there to promote her latest single “Really Don’t Care,” she also spoke about her upcoming world tour, her new apartment amongst the elderly and, here’s the kicker folks, her fervent belief that aliens and mermaids are real(?!).

Yeah, we were pretty intrigued too. Confessing her love for conspiracy theories, Lovato believes that mermaids are real because of an apparently convincing documentary she saw on The Discovery Channel. More »

Future Walks From Dusk Till Dawn In “Blood, Sweat, Tears” Video: Watch

Future walks alone in his new video for “Blood, Sweat, Tears,” the triumphant conclusion of his sophomore album Honest. He starts following a deserted road while it’s pitch black outside, then keeps walking until the sun rises. The video’s premise is simple, yes, though it also should remind fans of the Atlanta rapper’s biggest influence, going into his new music: Coldplay.

“I just like the melodies. They’re very melodic,” Future said to The Huffington Post, adding, “I don’t really listen to anybody in hip-hop.”

But it’s hard to ignore the aesthetic similarities between “Blood, Sweat, Tears” and Coldplay’s “Yellow” video, too. For the latter, frontman Chris Martin sang the song while walking on a beach, alone, in one continuous shot from dusk till dawn. More importantly, Future appears just as earnest in “Blood, Sweat, Tears” as Martin does for “Yellow” – and that sort of behavior is now rare in hip-hop videos, as Future likely knows too.

Jennifer Lopez Brings Out Ja Rule & Pays Tribute To Selena At Bronx Concert: Watch

Jun 5th, 2014 // Comment

Jennifer Lopez brought out Ja Rule and paid tribute to Selena Quintanilla-Perez during her June 4 homecoming concert (“The Bronx!”) at Pelham Bay Park’s Orchard Beach. She may be prepping for next week’s release of A.K.A., but during that concert, she was more than aware that fans rode the 6 to see her live – the same subway line referenced in her 1999 debut, On the 6.

Lopez actually brought out several guests during the show: Fat Joe performed the Terror Squad‘s “Lean Back,” while French Montana assisted with A.K.A.‘s “I Luh Ya Papi.” But it was Ja Rule who inspired the loudest cheers, as he strolled on stage to perform his verses from Murder Inc‘s “Ain’t It Funny” and “I’m Real” remixes. The crowd chimed in whenever they could, seen when Lopez sang Selena’s “No Me Queda Más,” off her 1994 and fifth album Amor Prohibido.

Omnipresent pop behemoth “Happy” may have finally slipped from the #1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks ago, but apparently that’s of no matter to Pharrell. The hit-maker braved rainy New York City weather this morning to perform his chart juggernaut outdoors for the Today Show — and, yep, the hat, or at least a variation on it, is back. (Just be happy it wasn’t the Native American headdress this time, which Mr. Williams is garnering some bad press for. More on that below.)

If watching Pharrell do “Happy” still gives you goosebumps, then have at it above. And below, Pharrell performs “Come Get It Bae,” and explains his lifelong obsession with, um, Carl Sagan. More »

Ryan Lewis, Of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Asks Fans About Ryan Lewis: Watch

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have toured the world off the strength of “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.” Because of those songs, the Seattle hip-hop duo became the first duo, period, to send its first two singles to No. 1 on the Hot 100. But even after its landmark 2013, Macklemore fans won’t recognize Ryan Lewis even if he was holding up a photo of himself, starring at them in the face.

That’s what Late Night host Jimmy Fallon figured, anyway. And he was mostly right! Unlike Live host Jimmy Kimmel with Drake, Fallon sent an undisguised Lewis out and around New York, to asks fans a few questions about actual facts: who is he (it’s a mystery), what he does (also a mystery) and how attractive he is (this, not so much). Macklemore even makes a cameo, though he doesn’t help matters.

With Season 5 of Glee now wrapped up, Lea Michele has been out and about promoting new book Brunette Ambition. And naturally a stop by Chelsea Lately last night turned into an opportunity for the actress-singer to speak off the cuff about a few topics, such as her family-approved underage drinking as a kid.

“I’m Italian, so it was like at the dinner table it would be Pellegrino, like a huge jug of soda and a huge thing of wine,” Lea explained to host Chelsea Handler. “Then growing up, I’d be having dinner with my boyfriend and his parents, and I’d be like, ‘Where’s the wine? Like, pass the wine!’”

She then detailed a meeting at age 15 with a manager who advised her to get plastic surgery. More »

‘Annie’ Remake Features Updated Songs By Sia & Greg Kurstin: Listen

Sia, pop’s most in-demand songwriter, has revealed her role in the forthcoming Annie remake (out this Christmas): updating its music.

As she tells fans, Sia’s helped producer Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Lily Allen, Pink) with this re-telling’s soundtrack, by revising the lyrics and melodies in particular. And as heard in a new trailer revealed today (May 30), her changes are slight but impactful. For “Hard Knock Life,” she’s tweaked its lyrics to reflect that the remake’s kids are foster kids rather than orphans. Oh, and “We get tricked” gets changed to “We get shit.” More »

Miguel Falls For Model Gigi Hadid In “Simple Things” Video: Watch

Miguel wanders through Hollywood in his new video for “Simple Things.” So does Sports Illustrated model Gigi Hadid. But the farther they wander away from the Walk of Fame, the more romantic that “Simple Things” becomes. Its black-and-white footage, with close-ups of their rugged good looks and wide-angle shots of the scenery (strip malls, a neighborhood game of cee-lo), slowly unfolds until the two end up at the beach. It’s like Lana Del Rey‘s “West Coast” video without the actual fire, or the best of Levi’s 501 commercials.

Hadid had starred in another video recently, too – for Cody Simpson‘s cringeworthy “Surfboard.” The two of them had actually been dating for one year, and apparently they had to be told to stop kissing on set, only to announce their breakup shortly thereafter. (They both had “too crazy” schedules, plus Simpson “needed to experience life.”) Miguel doesn’t actually make a move on Hadid, but “Simple Things” ends up being a far better video because of it. Simpson attempts in “Surfboard” to sell this idea that he’s a grown sex object now, while Miguel refuses to try that hard. More »
