Iggy Azalea's famous curves make Instagram a much better place. See her best pics.

Iggy Azalea casually dropped a bombshell on Twitter last night (November 20) and then carried on with her latest tirade (this time about bootleg vinyl). The rap diva’s big revelation? That she has been working with the Queen of Las Vegas, Britney Spears. A fan asked if she would ever consider working with the most personal pop princess and she unexpectedly answered: “I did and it was amazing.”

When asked what came of the studio session, the “Beg For It” hitmaker held her tongue. “Can’t say anymore info about it,” she tweeted. This sounds like a no-brainer. Britney needs a hit and Iggy is hot enough at the minute to almost guarantee one — even if it’s simply via YouTube views like her feature on Jennifer Lopez‘s “Booty”. Which garnered the veteran pop queen a surprise top 20 hit. See the femcee’s tweets after the jump. More »

Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie Minogue & More Featured On Giorgio Moroder’s Upcoming Album

Now here’s a major plot twist for your Monday morning: Synth-pop pioneer Giorgio Moroder is returning with his first original artist album in 30 years — and he’s got a few famous friends to help him out this time around.

74 Is The New 24 is the (brilliant) title of Moroder’s upcoming LP due out in Spring 2015 according to a press release issued today, which will feature contributions from some of our favorite pop acts, including Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma among others.

The legendary producer, responsible for dozens of iconic gems from the past four decades including Donna Summer‘s iconic “I Feel Love,” said that he was inspired by Daft Punk to make a grand return. “After they asked me to be on their record I started to get offers to DJ, which I had never done, and that was a great thing, and then I started to get offers for a deal, and Sony/RCA was the best, so I went with them,” he explained to VICE.

Check out the album’s title track over at The Creators Project, and let us know what you think in the comments below. More »

Taylor Swift Could Beat Britney Spears’ Record For The Highest First-Week Album Sales Tally By A Female Artist

Taylor Swift could eclipse a record Britney Spears set way back in 2000 for the highest first-week album sales tally by a female artist. The 24-year-old’s new LP 1989 sold 1.316 million copies in its first seven days of release according to Hits Daily Double, which is marginally less than the 1.319 million opening bow of Oops!… I Did It Again in 2000. However, HDD doesn’t include all sales data, so the “Shake It Off” diva could still squeeze past her.

And even if Taylor doesn’t beat that record, 1989 will still deliver the biggest first-week sales tally of her career (Red sold 1.208 million copies in 2012) — an incredible achievement given the steady decline of album sales. It will be interesting to see how many copies the former country queen can sell by the year’s end. She has a hectic promo schedule and another single on the horizon, so three million copies doesn’t seem out of reach.

EDIT: Taylor Swift ultimately fell short of Britney’s record. 1989 sold 1.287 million copies this week according to Billboard. More »

Britney Spears Is Getting Her Own Holiday, As She Rightfully Deserves

It’s Britney (Day), bitch!

Incredibly, it’s already been just about a year since Brit Brit began her Las Vegas residency, Piece Of Me, and the reviews and sales numbers have been utterly stellar — so much so, that Planet Hollywood is now giving back to the living legend in the form of a new holiday.

On Wednesday, November 5, Las Vegas will be celebrating “Britney Day” at The LINQ Promenade, where Clark County Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak will “present Britney with an official proclamation, as well as the Key to the iconic Las Vegas Strip.” What will B do with that key? Likely indulge in her outrageous shopping spree for a bit with her BFFs, and then help herself into the Starbucks on the ground floor of Planet Hollywood for some delicious frappes. More »

U2 Apologize (Kind Of) For Surprise ‘Songs Of Innocence’ Release: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Remember that horrible time when U2 added their new album, Songs Of Innocence, to our iCloud accounts? Well now they are finally apologizing…kind of. The band’s frontman, Bono, addressed the fiasco during a Facebook Q&A session: “Oops. I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea and we got carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. Drop of megalomania, touch of generosity, dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years mightn’t be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it.” [Pitchfork]

:: Tyga spoke with our friends over at Vibe magazine about his experience working with Kanye West on his forthcoming album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. The Young Money rapper stated, “He just told me to come to the studio one day and just gave me and Big Sean this long speech. He was just saying what it is, and what we need to do as young artists and how we just need to take control of this shit. We got the voice, and people follow what we do.” Read what else Tyga had to say here.
