17-year-old Sydney spoke about meeting Katy Perry at the MTV Video Music Awards — she’s a fan! — before launching into “Cool Kids”. The Sierota clan is a well-oiled machine when it comes to live performances and they impressed with a typically tight rendition. Expect this song to just get bigger and bigger.

“What I’ve learned is that if you don’t have the foundation of self-love first, you really have nowhere to pull love from to give it away,” she says. “I had to learn about taking care of myself before I could take care of others.” Therapy has also changed what Katy is looking for in a man. “As I’m heading into my 30s I have less time for bullshit,” the 29-year-old admits. “A lot of times I’ve ended up with people who have been intimidated by me, unfortunately. They say they’re not, but it comes out in the long run.” More »

The 17-year-old has never looked better. Lorde’s long locks steal the show on the cover but she looks just as cute when she hides them under a hat in another adorable picture. The “Royals” singer is about to embark on a small run of North American tour dates. Perhaps now would be a good time to release the next single from Pure Heroine. The airwaves sound better with her music. See more of Ella’s Elle shoot after the jump. More »
When you’re singing about ass, you had better be willing to show a little and J.Lo went above and beyond with her skimpy silver dress. She tore up the stage with her tuxedo-clad male dancers and twerked like her life depended on it. Jenny is still the best dancer in the business and showed the newcomers in the audience how to put on a memorable show. Watch up top. More »
The 26-year-old serves up one of her kookiest pictorials yet, channeling Halle Berry‘s X-Men character Storm with a splash of Kerli‘s trademark Baby Spice-on-acid look thrown into the mix. RiRi always delivers the goods visually but she’s been taking things in a darker, more interesting direction lately. Hopefully, that’s a sign of where she’s going musically for R8. Peruse the pics up top. More »
It didn’t take a lot of detective work to discover that she was talking about Katy Perry. She hired three of Taylor’s dancers for her live show before the (former) country queen’s Fearless tour was finished. Only, here’s the rub. They had previously worked on the “This Is How We Do” hitmaker’s Teenage Dream tour and, according to TMZ, apparently gave plenty of notice that they wanted to work with her again.
“We’re told the dancers told Taylor up front … they did not want to sign for the full tour — they wanted a 30-day out, and we’re told it’s because they were just waiting for Katy to go back on tour,” the website reports. “When Katy hit the stage again, they gave their 30-day notice, but Taylor got so pissed off she fired them on the spot.” If everybody was upfront about their intentions, why is Taylor mad? She’s popular enough to sell a ton of albums without creating fictional drama. More »
Meghan Trainor‘s breezy ode to body image has taken the crown away from Taylor Swift‘s two-week #1 “Shake It Off” this week, moving on up to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
The breezy ode to body image — part of her debut EP Title, which was released this week — was bolstered by a few key promotional appearances for the major push to #1, including her silly classroom instrument-led performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
And, as a point of pride for us here at Idolator, we first premiered our girl Meghan’s video for “All About That Bass” back in early June. My, how much has changed in such a short time. Congratulations, Meghan! More »
Part of Betty Who’s charm is that whether her cuts end of being singles or not, they still come packing the same radio-worthy pop wallop. You can never accuse this girl of chucking out filler material. Case in point: “Runaways.” Give it a listen below. More »
