One of the highlights of last night’s (August 26) final episode ever of Chelsea Lately — aside from seeing host Chelsea Handler nude in the shower with Ellen DeGeneres, of course — was watching Miley Cyrus cover Roy Orbison‘s aptly-titled classic “It’s Over.” The recent MTV VMAs Video Of The Year winner was every bit the class act in her red pants and white fringe jacket, doing Orbison justice by belting out the Top 10 hit from 1964 with her stunning vocal range on full display. Now this is the Miley we all love.

Later, in the show’s final minutes, Cyrus joined Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Avril Lavigne and a slew of others on stage for a riff on “We Are The World” titled “Goodbye To E!”, which sent Handler’s show off into the late night one last time.

For seven years, Chelsea Handler‘s crass, ballsy humor brought an air of uniqueness to late night TV — she was, after all, a female in an otherwise male-dominated arena. Alas, her series, Chelsea Lately, came to an end last night (August 27) in a star-filled night that saw Ellen DeGeneres confronting a nude Handler in the shower, the trio of Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Aniston and Mary McCormack staging an intervention of sorts with the hostess, Chelsea’s ex 50 Cent performing with G-Unit and Miley Cyrus covering Roy Orbison‘s “It’s Over.”

For the big finale, multiple past guests of the show and friends of Handler’s — including Gwen Stefani, Fergie, Dave Grohl, Alanis Morissette, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes and Avril Lavigne — joined her in riffing on “We Are The World” with the farewell song “Goodbye To E!” More »

Usher Hits The Club Without Nicki Minaj In Their “She Came To Give It To You” Video: Watch

Given Usher‘s status as perhaps the most consistent artist in R&B, it’s surprising how underwhelming the first two cuts from his eighth studio album have been. “Good Kisser” was an unusually generic bedroom anthem and “She Came To Give It To You” sounds like a reject from Justin Timberlake‘s The 20/20 Experience. Even a cameo from Nicki Minaj can’t save it.

The video isn’t particularly inspiring either. The 35-year-old is one of the best dancers in the business but his moves are clouded by murky lighting and choppy editing. Then there’s Nicki no-show. Sure, she performs her verse in a room surrounded by televisions but it’s kind of anti-climactic that they never share a scene together. Watch up top. More »

Laverne Cox Dancing To Beyonce’s Medley Was Possibly The Best Moment Of The VMAs: Watch

The dust has finally settled on the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards but, chances are, you’re still watching the epic performances on repeat. Well, here’s one you might have missed. While Beyonce was schooling lessors in the art of performance with her visual album-spanning medley, Laverne Cox was putting on a show of her own — from the audience!

The Orange Is The New Black actress clearly caught the holy ghost during “Blow” and launched to her feet. The 30-year-old history-maker is clearly a paid-up member of The Hive because she knew all the moves. Making the moment even more magical is the sour look on Kim Kardashian‘s face. (The reality star was seated in the row behind). Watch Laverne get her entire life after the jump. More »

News that Iggy Azalea replaced Pitbull on the new edit of Jennifer Lopez‘s “Booty” caught most people by surprise this morning (August 26) but the bottom-heavy divas gave away multiple (and fairly obvious) clues on a recent episode of MTV’s House Of Style reboot. In fact, they openly talked about their collaboration and their world-famous derrieres.

After playing a snippet of the Diplo-produced club-banger, J.Lo says: “I’m super excited for it. It’s going to be the next single.” But then Jenny gives the whole thing away. “You did something on it and obviously because we have that in common,” she says in reference to their beautiful butts. “I think we have high fashion booty,” chimes in Iggy.

Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett Jam In Their Low-Key “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” Video: Watch

It will be interesting to see how Little Monsters and jazz enthusiasts respond to Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett‘s Cheek To Cheek LP but, judged solely on their merits, all of the songs we’ve heard thus far have been extremely pleasant. The unlikely duo dropped a low-key video for “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love” today (August 26) and it’s the perfect antidote for the diva’s overwhelming, more-is-more ARTPOP visuals.

Originally recorded by Adelaide Hall way back in 1928, the swingin’ standard is a nice fit for Gags and Tony. It allows them to riff off each other and ham it up (ever so slightly). Those shenanigans are captured in the studio-based video, which finds Mother Monster modeling a variety of wigs and smoking a cigar. Her suave companion looks a little bemused but he’s clearly having a good time. Watch up top. More »

When Demi Lovato appeared at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, she stunned on the red carpet her gorgeous, generously low cut red dress. But for Demi, the glamorous look meant more than just another dress.

Yesterday, the outspoken “Really Don’t Care” diva posted a side-by-side comparison of some of the dresses she’s worn at the event over the years and reflected on the change in her attitude about her body over the years. “I remember the day I wore the dress in the very first picture. I remember asking for spanx to flatten my stomach because I use to feel so heavy and ‘fat’. Now looking at this picture, you can clearly see my hip bones. It makes me sad because I wasted so many years ashamed of my body when I could’ve been living the happy and healthy life I live today,” she explained to her followers in the emotional message.

Demi has continued to be vocal over the years about her issues with her body image, eating disorders and gaining self-acceptance while continuing to inspire her fans. And while that is an ongoing journey, it sounds like the talented young songstress is truly feeling as beautiful inside and she looks on the outside. Get it, Demi!

Nick Jonas Previews His Album, Talks New Single “Jealous” & The Transition To Solo Stardom

Nick Jonas made quite a statement with moody mid-tempo R&B anthem “Chains”, which seemingly dropped out of nowhere in late July. He made it very clear that he’s all grown up and ready to explore a completely different soundscape. As it turns out, the 21-year-old has been working on new music for the best part of year and played a bunch of previously unheard tracks for press last week.

The solo star delivered a killer four-song set that included a soulful groove called “Numb”, which he co-wrote with Mike Posner, and another new track called “Push”. Nick squeezed every ounce of angst he could muster into “Chains” before debuting his next single “Jealous” (due September 7), which sounds like Bruno Mars mixed with classic ’80s soul-pop. It’s fantastic — instantly hummable and very radio-friendly. After the performance, I spoke to Nick about his album and the future of the Jonas Brothers (among other things).

Have the lovely ladies of Say Lou Lou ever done wrong? They haven’t, actually…and they’re not about to start now.

The ethereal dream-pop Aussie-Swedish duo, known for such haunting gems as “Everything We Touch” and “Beloved,” are steadily preparing to release their highly anticipated debut LP, Lucid Dreaming, in February.

Ahead of the album’s release, the duo just dropped a cover of Daft Punk‘s luscious Random Access Memories track “Instant Crush,” which they’re giving out for free. True to form, it’s an utterly stunning reworking, stripping out the electronica of the original and replacing the production with atmospheric guitars and drums. The girls carry the track beautifully, and it’s all very magical and lovely as ever.
