It’s disappointing because the DJ has gone above and beyond to deliver great visuals this era. (Highlights include the “Addicted To You” lego alternate video and his wild “Wake Me Up” animated adventure). Don’t get me wrong. “Lay Me Down” is still worth a look but it could have been so much better. Watch Avicii do his thing behind the decks up top. More »

This week also saw some major skin-baring, including iHeartRadio winner RiRi stripping down for Lui, Mariah‘s lingerie-baring Wonderland cover and Rita Ora losing her top for Terry Richardson. (We’ve rounded up the best magazine covers of May in the latest Ibrawlator — which one is your favorite?)
Bey & Jay‘s insanely priced On The Run Tour tickets went on sale, which provoked some hilarious reactions, while “Love Never Felt So Good,” the lead single from Michael Jackson’s posthumous Xscape (which features Justin Timberlake!) made its grand debut overnight. Plus, we’re looking back at April and asking you to vote for your favorite record between acts like Iggy Azalea, Kelis and Jason Derulo. Have you voted yet? As always, you guys had plenty to say.

iHeartLosAngeles iHeartRadio Music Awards took place last night, and, to be fair, it was the very first time this particular do happened. So we should be forgiving of the fact that the night was a 70% terrible thing to behold. Actually, it was probably 89% terrible, but, again, alcohol cures many award-show ills.
So in the spirit of helping out this budding young televised franchise in its infancy, let’s take a look below at the moments that were good and the moments that were not so good. Consider them like life lessons to grow by. You have to stumble — or open your show with Pitbull — before you can run, no? (Unless, of course, NBC yanked the option for this thing ever happening again. In which case — read no further!) More »
The new face of Queen also painted his nails black and showed off his blond quiff. It would all be too much on anyone else but it’s just right on Adam. He will be hitting the road soon with his new band but hopefully the American Idol alum is edging closer towards the release of album number three. The pop world is so much more interesting with him in it. More »
According to Billboard, the compilation will be released on May 27 — a mere three weeks before the Adam/Queen tour kicks off at Chicago’s United Center (on June 19). Hmmmm. Interesting timing. Might Sony be regretting losing the American Idol alum, now that he’s suddenly so prolific in 2014? More »

:: Pharrell has talked about his surprise hit “Happy” at length before, but he has yet to cry over its success as he did on Oprah Prime. “I don’t know why I’m crying!” he said, after host Oprah Winfrey played a clip of fans around the world dancing to the song. [Rap Radar]
:: Speaking of hits: Mac Miller debuted a few new songs at a April 12 concert in Pittsburgh, and one line stuck out to fans in particular. “I did it all without a Drake feature,” he rapped. Thoughts, Future? [MTV]
:: Jhene Aiko exacts revenge on a cheating love in her new “Comfort Inn Ending” video. She steals his jewelry and scratches his car with keys before she sets fire to it all, making for a compelling follow-up to “The Worst” while proving she can hold her own, with or without Drizzy. [Rap Radar]

Martin last worked with Lambert for his 2009 debut For Your Entertainment, where he co-produced two songs. Lambert has talked of his third album since last summer, although at the time he reduced such mentions to a footnote in part of a bigger announcement – he left RCA, the label that released his first two albums including 2012′s No. 1 record Trespassing. Since then, too, he has assured fans of new music while regularly appearing with Demi Lovato on Glee and prepping for a North American tour with Queen. More »
Lambert]first performed with the legendary British band on American Idol in 2009, then again in 2011 for the MTV EMAs, which was followed by a string of overseas dates in 2012. The only time the Lambert-fronted Queen has played a US concert was at last year’s iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas.
“I’m completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon,” said Lambert today. “The thought of sharing the stage for a full set in North America is so beautifully surreal. I’m honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie’s memory; he’s a personal hero of mine, and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band. I know this tour will be a huge milestone for me, and with the support of Brian, Roger and the rest of the band, I feel like magic will be on display.”
Tickets go on sale March 14 through Live Nation. Head below to see the full list of dates. More »
