Bless Miley Cyrus. Just when things were starting to get a little dull on the interwebs, the retired twerker posed nude for V magazine and gave gossip hounds and perverts a reason for living. She can now add humanitarian to her long list of accomplishments! So far we’ve seen the (fairly tame) cover and a censored black-and-white nude but more pics are finally emerging from the Karl Lagerfeld-helmed shoot.
In one new pic, the 21-year-old rocks a bath robe and thigh-high boxing boots. In another, Miley holds a mouth-shaped purse against her vagina. It’s basically the high-fashion equivalent of her infamous Terry Richardson shoot. If you’re wondering why the hitmaker is posing nude again, your guess is as good as mine. It’s not like she’s actively promoting Bangerz (that fourth single is long overdue), so I guess the pop princess is basically losing her clothes for shits and giggles at this point. Rock on! See the pics after the jump. More »
Kylie Minogue staged one of the most impressive career reinventions of all time when “Confide In Me” dropped on this day (August 29) in 1994. After releasing four massively successful albums of (glorious) bubblegum pop, the Australian diva switched labels and reemerged with a haunting Brothers In Rhythm-produced indie-pop anthem that still seethes and seduces 20 years later.
Despite the startling change of genre, “Confide In Me” was an instant hit. It became the pop icon’s first number one record in Australia since 1988 and landed at number two on the UK chart. It even managed to find an audience in the US — reaching number 39 on the Billboard Club Chart. More importantly, the song finally showcased Kylie’s vocal ability (there was genuine surprise that she could, you know, actually sing) and established her as a credible artist.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Confide In Me”, Steve Anderson (one half of Brothers In Rhythm) shared some secrets about the recording process on Twitter. For starters, did you know that there’s a gated didgeridoo in the “stick or twist” breakdown? Mind blown! He also posted the original lyric sheet (above) and revealed that the much-loved B-side “If You Don’t Love Me” was recorded in one take. Learn all these is to know about the classic hit after the jump. More »

Lana Del Rey‘s Fashion cover arrived way back in July (along with a portion of the accompanying interview) but more pictures from the glamorous shoot have finally surfaced online. After presenting a more casual, low-key look for most of the Ultraviolence era, it’s great to see the 29-year-old all dolled up again. It’s like a mini-Born To Die revival.
The 10-page spread (where are the other pics?) appears to be have been photographed in an old mansion or elegant country house. There’s a smoldering pic of Lana grasping a bedpost and a couple of her posing outside against stone walls. She looks amazing in all of them but the snap of her rocking the royal blue cape from the cover wins. See it for yourself after the jump. More »

Between Donatella Versace‘s infinitely-entertaining Ice Bucket Challenge video and Karl Lagerfeld‘s V magazine shoot with Miley Cyrus, Idolator is turning into a real Hub Of Fashion lately. Yes, Lagerfeld was the man behind the lens for Miley’s latest round of boob-baring photos — an upgrade from Terry Richardson, if you ask us. And to celebrate the impending arrival of the fall “Rebel” issue of the publication, the 80-year-old German designer/photographer posed on a hill by the ocean, holding the cover of the mag up in front of his face.
Miley popped the above pic on Instagram (while noting that the shoot was styled by Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele). See it in full size below. More »
While the wait continues for Róisín Murphy‘s long, long, long awaited forthcoming LP, the Irish avant-garde pop songstress just provided a teensy hint of what’s to come on Instagram this week — not that it makes the wait any easier, of course.
The “Let Me Know” chanteuse, who’s been serving up singles here and there like “Momma’s Place,” as well as her summer Italian language disco EP, Mi Senti — uploaded a photo of a handwritten letter explaining what’s to come from the long-awaited LP. “It really is like nothing you’ve ever heard before,” she says. Check out what the singer-songstress had to say in full after the jump. More »
Katy Perry decided to bring Mad Decent rapper Riff Raff as her denim-clad date to the MTV Video Music Awards this past Sunday, and then seemingly wound up, as Vulture worded it, “straight-up ignor[ing]” him the entire night. Whether or not that’s the actual case, who knows — but, as evidenced by countless photos and video clips from the event, Perry did seem way more enthralled with the gentleman seated on the other side of her: “Stay With Me” hit-maker Sam Smith.
Cut to what comes off as a nasty tweet Riff Raff shot off at Smith last night, wherein he called the British singer a “chubby little fuck factory” and further commented, “P.S. YOUR FACE IS HUGE.” The cause of the rapper’s ire: Smith apparently cropping Riff Raff out of a photo posted on Instagram. More »
This morning, The Today Show was in full-on Arianator mode.
My Everything pop darling Ariana Grande took over the stage this AM in a cute metallic skirt and top and matching stilettos (and that ponytail, of course!) to perform a whole bunch of tracks from her brand new LP.
The set included summer smash “Problem (feat. Iggy Azalea),” “Break Free (feat. Zedd),” a bit of “Bang Bang (feat. Jessie J and Nicki Minaj)” and the Diana Ross-sampling “Break Your Heart Right Back (feat. Childish Gambino).”
She also sat down with Matt Lauer to discuss her career, both as a pop star and Cat Valentine on Nickelodeon, staying close to her friends and family and whether or not she’s got a boyfriend (“I’m happy!” she quickly deflected). Check out all the performances, as well as the interview, after the jump. More »
