Betty Who’s “Runaways”: Listen To Her Fantastic New ‘Take Me When You Go’ Song

If you thought Betty Who‘s EP non-singles like “High Society,” “You’re In Love” and “Alone Again” were quite dreamy, wait till you give a listen to “Runaways,” an undeniable standout from the Australian singer’s upcoming debut LP Take Me When You Go (out October 7). Rolling Stone premiered the tune today, and accurately described it as a “M83-meets-Katy Perry dance tune.” We’d even go one step further and say there’s a dash of The Cars in there. (Ask your parents about them, kiddies — or better yet, do yourself a service and go pick up their greatest hits.)

Part of Betty Who’s charm is that whether her cuts end of being singles or not, they still come packing the same radio-worthy pop wallop. You can never accuse this girl of chucking out filler material. Case in point: “Runaways.” Give it a listen below. More »

Maroon 5′s ‘V’ Bumps Ariana Grande’s ‘My Everything’ Off The Top Of The Album Chart

Maroon 5‘s fifth album V arrives at the top of the Billboard 200 on the strength of 164,000 copies sold in its first week — enough to send Ariana Grande sailing down to #4 with My Everything, though still a far cry from the Adam Levine-fronted band’s opening week with previous album Overexposed (220,000). Billboard points out that M5 topped the main album chart one other time, with 2007′s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, which opened with 429,000.

On their last outing, Overexposed arrived on the heels of two hit singles: The radio juggernauts “Moves Like Jagger” (which topped the Hot 100) and “Payphone,” a song that peaked at #2 and was eventually certified five-times Platinum. More »

It's Singleney, Bitch!
You think you got what it takes to date Miss Britney Spears? You better work, bitch!

Last night, after appearing at the New York Public Library to debut her new line of lingerie and sleepwear (The Intimate Britney Spears), the newly single “Perfume” pop icon came to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat with Jimmy about the pros and cons of dating a living legend.

Arriving to the stage to a thunderous applause from the audience (“it’s MY show!” Jimmy jokingly yelled), the diva — looking drop dead beautiful in red — was shown her very first Tinder profile (with a bio that reads, amazingly, “This better work, bitch!”) before launching into a silly pros/cons weigh-in with Jimmy. Although we know she’s busy in Las Vegas at her Piece Of Me residency (and in the studio!), it’s so, so nice to see her out having her fun too. She looks amazing!

Check out Britney goofing around with Jimmy up top, and let us know what you think of Singleney in the comments below! More »

Nick Minaj’s ‘The Pinkprint’ Now Has A November Release Date

Barbz, it’s time to for a line and start twerking in celebration, as Nicki Minaj‘s third studio album now has a release date. The “Anaconda” rapstress’ official Facebook page announced the following last night: “Nicki Minaj has officially confirmed the release date for her upcoming third studio album, ‘The Pinkprint’ — November 24!”

The Pinkprint sees Minaj returning to the same time frame that her debut LP, Pink Friday dropped. (That one was released on November 19, 2010 — i.e. the kickoff of the busy holiday shopping season.) And given that her sophomore effort, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, sold only about half the 1.9 million copies her debut did after arriving in spring 2012, it seems like a wise choice. More »

:: Vanessa Hudgens was a bridesmaid at Ashley Tisdale‘s recent wedding to Christopher French. It’s good to see the High School Musical alumni/retired pop divas are still tight. [Just Jared]

Hoodie Allen Goes Hitchhiking With Disastrous Results In His “Dumb For You” Video: Watch

hoodie-allen
Take A Ride
New York-based rapper Hoodie Allen broke big in 2012 when his independently-released debut EP All American landed at number 10 on the Billboard 200. Expect even bigger things from his debut LP People Keep Talking (due October 14) if the success of buzz tracks/singles “Movie” and “Dumb For You” are any indication. The latter reached number one on the iTunes hip-hop/R&B chart earlier today (September 9) and has huge crossover potential.

A half-sung/half-rapped tune about falling in love with all the wrong people, “Dumb For You” is Steven Markowitz‘s (his real name) catchiest offering yet. It has hooks to burn (note the killer guitar riff) and an instantly hummable chorus. The video also dropped today and it finds the 26-year-old hitchhiking with a bunch of crazy people. Watch Hoodie take the road-trip from hell up top. More »

Iggy Azalea And Rita Ora Got Extremely Intimate On ‘The Ellen Show’: Watch “Black Widow” Live

rita-ora-iggy-azalea
Closer Than Ever
Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora belted out rising hit “Black Widow” on today’s (September 9) episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and shared an extremely intimate moment. The duo has performed the trap-pop anthem live several times with similar staging (really hot ballerinas and copious clapping) but the faux-lesbian choreography is new. And welcomed.

After spitting her first verse alone in a figure-hugging white bodysuit, the Australian rap diva walks into the audience to meet her similarly-clad collaborator. Things get a little crazy when they return to the stage and Rita stares longingly at Iggy’s famous backside before they gently caress each other. I love stunt queen antics, so I’m fine with this. Watch the ladies in action up top. More »
