Whatcha Say: The Good, The Bad & The Cudi In This Week’s Reader Comments

Over the past week, we heard Susan Boyle’s cover of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence” and Bruno Mars’ new single from Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1. We also saw Kelly Clarkson’s “Mr. Know It All” video, Kid Cudi’s comical interview with Conan O’Brien and Adam Lambert’s sitdown with Heidi Klum. So, how did…

Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett Duet In “The Lady Is A Tramp” Video Preview

We typically prefer our Lady Gaga videos to feature the pop star decked out in a myriad of bizarre outfits while exploring some sort of narrative, and that’s usually what we end up getting (“The Edge Of Glory” notwithstanding). But the clip for her duet with Tony Bennett on “The Lady Is A Vamp” shows…

Kelly Rowland Nearly Bares It All In Her “Lay It On Me” Sneak Peek

There’s so much sweat and skin in this preview for Kelly Rowland’s “Lay It On Me” video, we’re getting hot and bothered thinking about how much steamy goodness awaits us in the full clip. Check out the preview below, and give us your best guess on how an elephant fits into all this sensuality.

Enrique Iglesias And Pitbull Cut Loose In Their “I Like How It Feels” Video

Is Enrique Iglesias on fire these days or what? Not only did we catch him going “Mouth2Mouth” with Jennifer Lopez, but he also dropped the whistle-happy tune “I Like How It Feels” featuring his buddy Pitbull (who also guested on the curiously-similarly-titled “I Like It”). Perhaps most impressive of all, the “I Like How It…

Robin Thicke Wants To Kiss And Make Up On New Song “Love After War”

Robin Thicke tunes into his animal instincts again in his new track “Love After War”, the title track from his upcoming fifth studio LP. Over a jazzy backdrop, the former(?) sex therapist finds himself hoping to settle an argument with his lady — ’cause we all know the best time to knock boots is…

Hear T.I.’s Fresh-Out-Of-Prison Track “I’m Flexin'”

T.I. sure doesn’t waste any time, does he? Earlier today we learned his new single “I’m Flexin'” might drop as soon as Monday, and if that seemed like an awfully quick turnaround for a man who just left federal custody yesterday morning, then what do you think about the fact that the song has already…

Beyonce And Her Baby Bump Step Out In NYC (PHOTOS)

Yep, no doubt about it — that’s definitely a little baby bump we’ve spotted on Beyonce as she stepped out of a New York City hotel today. The belatedly-crowned “Song Of The ’00s” queen looked positively radiant in a short skirt that showed off her legs — and gave us another glimpse at her belly…

‘Glee’ Runs The World With Beyonce, Coldplay And Jennifer Hudson Covers

In next week’s highly anticipated, probably way-hyped up Glee episode “Asian F”, the club runs the gamut on Top 40 song selections: Brittany busts out Beyonce’s 4 single “Run The World (Girls)” (though Heather Morris’ dancing will no doubt wow us more than this cover), Amber Riley sings Jennifer Hudson’s “Spotlight”, and Matthew Morrison is…

Demi Lovato Performs Acoustic Set For VH1

Demi Lovato (looking a bit reminiscent of Alanis Morissette in the mid-90s) performed a few acoustic versions of her songs at VH1 studios, including Here We Go Again track “Catch Me” and the title track from her debut album Don’t Forget. The Unbroken diva also gives a repeat performance of Lil Wayne’s “How To Love”,…

Go Behind The Scenes Of Beyonce’s Pulse Launch Party

Beyonce may be pregnant, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t still know how to throw a killer party. The House of Deréon beauty launched her new fragrance Pulse last week, and now an “official video” puts us right there at the diva-scented affair. “I wanted to make sure it was something signature, and something that…

VH1 Names Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love” The Best Song Of The ’00s

VH1 debuted their list of the 100 Greatest Songs Of The ’00s — ya know, just twenty-two months after the end of the decade they’re discussing. But that won’t stop us from tearing apart their selections! Beyonce topped their list with her 2003 hit single “Crazy In Love”, and though we cannot say it’s our…

T-Pain And Wiz Khalifa (But Not Lily Allen) Appear In “5 O’Clock” Video

T-Pain takes the long walk home in his Lily Allen-sampling “5 O’Clock” video. The clip features Wiz Khalifa dropping his verse while window shopping in the red light district, but the Brit pop star is MIA, substituted by a brunette lip-syncing her hook. We get that the singer is currently pregnant and not exactly “music…

Lea Michele Arrives In Paris (PHOTOS)

Parisians sure know how to greet an American celebrity in style — they sent an Academy Award winner to greet Lea Michele at the airport! Okay, so maybe the fact that Oscar-winning Contagion star Marion Cotillard happened to be at Rossy airport at the same time the Glee fashionista arrived was a mere coincidence, but…

In celebration of reaching 100,000 fans on Facebook (look who’s Mr. Popular!), Patrick Stump gave all hundred thousand of his friends a special treat — a new song from his debut solo album, Soul Punk, called “Allie”. On the groovin’ R&B-leaning track, Stump mourns a failed shot at scoring in his younger years, though he…

Watch Ke$ha Rock Rio

Ke$ha has never exactly been one to make demure, commonplace fashion choices, but she may have outdone herself arriving in Rio de Janeiro wearing a plush hammerhead shark strapped to her face as a mask. (Suddenly Katy Perry’s Carmen Miranda mask doesn’t seem odd at all!) The backstabbing songstress was in town to play Rock…

Tony Bennett Talks Amy Winehouse On ‘The Daily Show’: “She Was In Trouble”

This week Tony Bennett’s Duets II became his first #1 album on the Top 200 chart in his 60-year career. To keep the momentum going, the New York crooner hit up Jon Stewart’s politically-charged talk show The Daily Show last night. Ironically, Bennett’s recent controversial comments about 9/11 didn’t come up in conversation at all.

Jay-Z Puts On An Extraordinary Carnival For Charity (PHOTOS)

There’s nothing more fun than a carnival, right? Well — maybe a carnival put on by a huge star that raises funds for a good cause. Now that he’s got a little one on the way, the father-to-be has even more reason to be charitable toward our nation’s youth, and last night was no exception…
