Kylie Minogue teased her eye-popping GQ Italy cover on Instagram yesterday (July 28) and set tongues wagging with her beautiful bikini body. The full image surfaced online today and it’s a real jaw-dropper. The flawless 46-year-old poses partially bottomless thanks to an extremely well-trained poodle. You can even see a bit of crack!

The camp and playful (and thus quintessentially Kylie) shoot was helmed by Steve Shaw and he does a great job of capturing the pop goddess in all her glory without being smutty. She even poses without her bikini top in one pic, exposing some heavenly side-boob. But she’s at the beach and it’s for a European men’s publication, so it’s pretty restrained when you think about it. See the saucy snaps after the jump. More »

Who Is Troye Sivan? 10 Facts About The “Happy Little Pill” Hitmaker

Troye Sivan is the latest teenager to make the leap from social media celebrity to pop star. The Australian, who built a massive YouTube following with personal vlogs, landed in the iTunes top 10 over the weekend with major label debut single “Happy Little Pill”. He made an even bigger impact with its parent EP TRXYE, which momentarily topped the album chart.

The 19-year-old’s success comes hot on the heels of Vine star Shawn Mendes, who recently debuted at number 24 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Life Of The Party”. While the ability to leverage his huge social following certainly played a role in his success, “Happy Little Pill” is a surprisingly mature (and dark) pop anthem. If you’re not familiar with the new kid on the block, find 10 facts about Troye after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue is aging in reverse. The gorgeous 46-year-old looks absolutely stunning on the cover of GQ Italy in a tiny bikini. What kind of Jennifer Lopez sorcery? “It’s summertime!!” is all the pop icon had to say about the sexy snap when she posted it on Instagram this afternoon (July 28) and there’s not much else to say but WOW.

The “Into The  Blue” diva recently wrapped up mentoring duties on The Voice Australia and can now return her focus to Kiss Me Once, which she will support with a world tour beginning August 22 in Ibiza, Spain. Cutfather-produced pop anthem “Sexy Love” was recently sent to radio down under but there’s still no word on the album’s next single internationally. Salivate over her GQ cover after the jump.

At a time when every pop star with an internet connection is posting nudes, it didn’t seem terribly far-fetched that Liam Payne would share a full-frontal pic on Instagram. The One Direction heartthrob posed seemingly naked on a luxury yacht with only pixelated squares covering his manhood. “Damn that was my last pair!” he captioned the cheeky snap.

It didn’t take long for Directioners to lose their shit with outbreaks of crying and shaking reported across the internet. Liam then spoiled everyone’s fun by posting the original pic, which reveals that he was in fact wearing swimming trunks. “Oh I found them never mind aha,” he wrote, ruthlessly crushing teenage dreams.

FKA Twigs Sings About Her Life As A “Video Girl”: Listen To The Haunting Track

FKA Twigs' "Weeks"
Watch the regal, Nabil-directed visual. Read More »

With the recent premiere of her dazzling single “Two Weeks,”  and the release of her highly-anticipated debut album LP1 just around the corner, British soulstress FKA Twigs — real name Tahliah Barnett — is everyone’s new up-and-coming artist to watch. While she might be considered a newcomer, FKA Twigs is actually a music-biz veteran, revealing that she was, in fact, a back-up dancer in her latest track “Video Girl.”

Featured in visuals for Kylie Minogue, Ed Sheeran, Taio Cruz, and, most notably, in Jessie J’s “Price Tag” and “Do It Like A Dude,” FKA Twigs addresses her past in this very raw and slightly heartbreaking new track. As synthy layers and Tahliah’s gentle vocals wind throughout song, it seems that the singer is not just ready for a new start as an artist, but she simply craves it. More »

House producer SecondCity (aka Rowman Harrington) was was born in Chicago, but his family emigrated to England when he was a young kid. In early June, Harrington topped the UK chart with club cut “I Wanna Feel,” which borrows vocals from Toni Braxton‘s 1996 hit “You’re Makin’ Me High.” For his follow-up floorfiller “What Can I Do,” however, SecondCity has opted for original vocals by Ali Love, a singer who previously appeared on The Chemical Brothers‘ “Do It Again,” among other tracks. Got all that? Good.

Now, sure, there are quite a lot of house anthems floating around the airwaves these days. But when they’re good enough to get our toes tapping at 4:50 p.m. on a Monday afternoon, there’s always room for another on our summer playlist.

Christina Perri is best-known for her emotional ballads (“Jar Of Hearts” and “A Thousand Years”) but the 27-year-old isn’t afraid to raise the tempo occasionally as she proves on new Head Or Heart single “Burning Gold”. The singer/songwriter performed the irresistible toe-tapper on the Today Show this morning (July 28) and even showed off a new look.

The “Human” diva is almost unrecognizable with her sleek, straightened hair but there’s no mistaking that voice. Christina delivered the goods vocally (as usual) and did her best to rev up the crowd with an energetic performance. “Burning Gold” has radio hit written all over it, so expect to hear a lot more of the Butch Walker-produced anthem.

It’s here! After each one of the talented ladies teased the track via social media over the past few weeks, “Bang Bang” — the Max Martin, Savan Kotecha and Ilya crafted superstar collabo between UK powerhouse Jessie J, My Everything mini-diva Ariana Grande and “Pills ‘N Potions” rapstress Nicki Minaj — is finally upon us.

“She got a body like an hour glass but I can give it to you all the time!” Jessie confidently pledges off the top of her clap-heavy, twerk-friendly soulful summer anthem. And from there, the ladies are off with a bang (eh heh), wailing across big bouncy beats and horn blasts.

“Break Free” pop darling Ariana provides a reliably solid verse of her own, followed by a spitfire surge of ferociousness sure to satiate the Barbs’ thirst for more from Miss Minaj. The vocals are loud and bold (we all know Jessie doesn’t hold back from a big ol’ belt!), and there are plenty of earworm pop hooks — from that powerful chorus (“Bang bang…there goes your heart!“) to the spell-off “B to the A to the N to the G to the uh!” and everything in between.
