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 »
Shakira‘s pregnant, Jessie Ware got married — everyone pop a bottle in celebration!

In one particular snap, the pair can be seen wearing matching leather jackets that, combined, spell out “Just Married” (above).

The moment has arrived: Maroon 5‘s highly anticipated, Sia-penned collaboration with the one and only Love. Angel. Music. Baby. diva Gwen Stefani is upon us.
The V ballad, due out on the band’s fifth studio album next week (September 2), sees The Voice‘s Adam Levine and newbie judge Stefani trading off heartfelt, melodic verses above a simple piano melody and sweeping cinematic strings, recalling A Great Big World‘s vulnerable “Say Something” with Christina Aguilera.
“I know you’re scared/Oh, I can feel it/It’s in the air, I know you feel that too,” Levine tenderly croons off the top of the track. And then, in comes the No Doubt frontwoman: “It won’t take me long to find another lover but I want you,” she swoons. It’s been forever since we last heard Gwen crooning a ballad to us, but just as with “4 In The Morning” or “Early Winter,” she’s still good at giving us full body chills.
It’s a gorgeous collaboration and, considering the loud rumblings about Gwen’s upcoming solo work on the way, an enticing indication of what’s still to come. Listen to “My Heart Is Open” after the jump, and let us know what you think in the comments below. More »
