Taio Cruz Blows Up In Explosive New Video “Dynamite”

In the music video for his second American hit “Dynamite,” Taio Cruz struts around a scrap yard while sexy, scantily-clad girls gyrate and weld metal. The UK singer-songwriter eventually convinces them to ditch their work and proceeds to turn the junk joint into a club. Kind of a step up from having Ke$ha slink around

Justin Bieber Is Out Of This World On His Comic Book Cover

Bluewater Comics must have learned from the across-the-board criticisms of their crudely-drawn Lady Gaga comic book.

Hear Stephen Jerzak’s “She Said” (Killabits Dubstep Remix) And Get It Free

Earlier this week, we hit you with the dancefloor-ready confection “She Said” — an unexpectedly clubby track from MySpace phenom Stephen Jerzak and Gossip Girl-actress-turned-someday-maybe-pop-diva Leighton Meester.
