It’s safe to say that Orlando Bloom is not a Belieber.

According to Page Six, Bloom and Justin Bieber got into a heated brawl leading up to an attempted punch in the general direction of Bieber’s face at Cipriani in Ibiza early this morning, and it all had to do with girls — namely Orlando’s ex, Miranda Kerr and Bieber’s on-again, off-again sweetheart, Selena Gomez.

And now for a brief #drama history lesson between the two, courtesy of Page Six: “The bad blood between the two began in 2012 when Bieber was seen getting flirty with Kerr after a Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which reportedly led to tension between the model and her Hollywood star husband, Bloom. The married couple then separated in October 2013. Then newly single Bloom was seen spending time with Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, in April.”

According to the tabloid, some sources say the punch came after Bieber “made a rude comment” about Miranda Kerr, while other sources say that only happened post-punch. Either way, there is now video evidence. Watch up top. More »

Kiesza jetted from New York to Los Angeles for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she took her MTV VMAs-nominated single “Hideaway” to the streets of Hollywood. Like her recent appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman, the Canadian singer spent part of the time outside, while dancing down the Hollywood Walk Of Fame and belting out the song — only this time there were plenty of locals on hand for her to interact with (including a very enthusiastic Chewbacca).

The ’90s house revivalist followed that spectacle up with her first live TV performance of “Giant In My Heart,” another cut off her Hideaway EP. Watch Kiesza do Kimmel above and below. More »

Madonna And Miley Cyrus Are Collaborating On A New Track? All The Signs Are There

Jul 29th, 2014 // 6 Comments
Miley: Unplugged
We attended her MTV Unplugged taping & had thoughts, y'all. Read More »

Brace yourself for another intergenerational duet on Madonna‘s new album. The pop legend shared lyrics on her Instagram account last night (July 28) and tagged Miley Cyrus (and “Wrecking Ball” songwriter MoZella). That’s a pretty strong hint that they’re working together but the twerkin’ 21-year-old basically confirmed it by replying to the post with a cheeky selfie.

The unlikely duo joined forces for Miley’s MTV Unplugged special earlier this year, so it’s not that surprising that they would work together again. Particularly given Madonna’s penchant for collaborating with much younger artists to remain relevant. (In her defense, everyone in the game is much younger at this stage). See the Queen of pop’s lyrics and her potential duet partner’s reply after the jump. More »

Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora’s “Black Widow” Gets A Killer Dance Remix From Justin Prime: Listen

Iggy Azalea has another runaway hit on her hands with “Black Widow”. The Rita Ora-assisted anthem is already top 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 without a video (or a single TV performance) and just broke into the iTunes top 20. At this rate, it’s only a matter of time before The New Classic spawns its second summer smash. Take that, haters!

Helping the song snatch wigs and kill careers is a new house overhaul from Justin Prime. While “Fancy” failed to deliver any memorable club remixes, the Dutch DJ does an admirable job of turning the hook-heavy hip-hop anthem into a booming floorfiller. He ups the BPM during chorus and lets Iggy do her thing over a massive drop. Listen after the jump. More »

Jasmine V is all grown up! The former teen queen, who came to fame as Justin Bieber‘s love interest in “Baby” before dropping surprisingly fierce singles like the still great “Werk”, has joined forces with Kendrick Lamar on sexy R&B club banger “That’s Me Right There”. It’s the first taste of her long-awaited debut EP (due on Interscope Records later this year).

“That’s Me Right There” is definitely a new direction for the 20-year-old. I enjoyed the dance-pop of recent — buzz? — singles like 2013′s underrated “Paint A Smile” but this knocks and the inclusion of Kendrick will expose the budding diva to a whole new audience. “That’s me right there, yeah that’s my man!” Jasmine schools the club over chunky beats.

BANKS’ “Beggin For Thread” Video: Watch The Eerie Clip

Releasing her stunning, ever-so-slightly danceable track “Beggin For Thread” last week, LA songstress BANKS — real name Jillian Banks — just premiered the haunting video, which veers in an almost spooky, Corpse Bride-esque direction.

Unlike her previous hypnotic clip for “Drowning,” ”Beggin For Thread” is filmed completely in black and white. BANKS surrounds herself with a gaggle of gorgeous dancers, whose bodies all seem to have been carved by Michelangelo himself, as they contort in unfathomable positions and almost try to suffocate her. BANKS remains flawless, however, even when she seemingly impersonates a sort of freaky zombie bride by the end of the clip. Oh, and as if it wasn’t ethereal enough, random glimpses of a majestic white stallion flash throughout, making the visual all the more mesmerizing to watch. More »

Miley Cyrus Is Naked (Under A Sheet): See The Pop Diva’s Grainy Bedroom Selfies

Doesn’t Miley Cyrus have an album to promote? I know she’s touring but what happened to that rumored fourth single from Bangerz? It would be nice to look at a new video or TV performance instead of her increasingly creepy Instagram feed. Which is basically a repository for photos of the 21-year-old’s chewed-up fingernails and bad tattoos.

On the bright side, the “Adore You” diva did put in some work this morning (July 29) by posting a bunch of grainy bedroom selfies. Miley does the usual stuff — poke her tongue out and canoodle with her dog — but also shows a bit of boob because, you know, self-expression and stuff like that.

While her plastic bag-filled visual for “Little White Lies” remains floating in our brains, UK indie-pop darling Florrie just threw a curveball, covering Kiesza‘s “Giant In My Heart” in a brand new acoustic session. Worlds collide!

The stripped down cover of the fast-rising dance diva’s Hideaway EP jam turns the bouncy House anthem into a truly gorgeous, gentle guitar-led production — that is, before she starts riffing loudly against a lively guitar strum. The cover showcases not only Florrie’s more than capable chops, but her ability to really kill it as a guitarist. (If you’ll recall, she’s also a master drummer!) Talent all over the place. Now then, can we arrange for some sort of fun electro-House duet between the two?

Check out Florrie crooning Kiesza up top, and let us know what you think of the arrangement in the comments below. More »

Maroon 5 Embrace Synths On “It Was Always You”: Listen To The Upbeat ‘V’ Buzz Track

Maroon 5 unveil the cover and tracklist of new LP 'V'. Read More »

While “Maps” continues to climb the Billboard Hot 100, Maroon 5 has unveiled another taste of their appropriately-titled fifth LP V (due September 2). And it’s not the genetically engineered for radio, pop/rock by numbers anthem we’ve come to expect from the band. Instead, they mix it up by experimenting with synths and the result is well worth a listen.

Produced by The Monsters and The Strangerz, “It Was Always You” begins ominously with jittery synths before Adam Levine sings about taking the leap from friends to lovers. “My whole life we never crossed the line, only friends in my mind,” the Begin Again actor admits. “But now I realize, it was always you.” It’s a fresh sound for the veteran rockers but still unmistakably Maroon 5.
