Aaron Paul Crashed Arcade Fire’s Coachella Set And Nobody Noticed: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Aaron Paul crashed Arcade Fire‘s Coachella set and nobody noticed. The Breaking Bad actor scuttled across the stage dressed as the pope — complete with a giant bobble head. He later posed for pics with Ellie Goulding. [Spin]

:: Dying to check out Jay Z‘s Made In America music festival but can’t afford to trek all the way to Philadelphia? Good news. Hov is bringing the event to Los Angeles, so you now have your choice of venue. [Billboard]

:: Kylie Minogue‘s outrageous “Sexercize” video starred a bunch of scantily clad women but out pop singer Mike Munich has turned the tables, recreating the opus with a bunch of buff dudes. It’s semi-NSFW so be careful where you watch it. [Same Same]

:: This is really sweet. Lorde finally got to meet George Brett, the baseball legend that inspired her career-making hit “Royals”. He had earlier sent her a signed jersey with the message “Lorde, you are a royal to me”. Aww. [Consequence Of Sound]

Kylie Minogue Literally Glows On The Cover Of ‘Vogue’ Australia

Kylie Minogue‘s Kiss Me Once promo blitz continues with a stunning Australian Vogue cover shoot. The pop icon literally glows in the gorgeous photo thanks to the her metallic bodice, the golden lighting and her flawless complexion. It’s hard to believe that the veteran kicked off her mega-successful recording career in 1987 because she looks half her age.

When she’s not holding a master class on how to pose for magazine covers, Kylie is still busily working on her Kiss Me Once campaign. Pharrell-produced second single “I Was Gonna Cancel” drops May 12 and she has already commissioned a mind-blowing remix by Aussie electro-pioneers The Presets. See another pic from the diva’s Vogue shoot after the jump. More »

The Presets Deconstruct Kylie Minogue’s “I Was Gonna Cancel”: Listen To Their Brilliant Remix

Kylie Minogue surprised a lot of people by picking “I Was Gonna Cancel” as the second single from Kiss Me Once. The Pharrell connection (he produced it) is an obvious selling point but the subtle mid-tempo jam is the most obvious choice. Happily, a dark and dangerous electro-house remix by The Presets makes the diva’s decision a lot easier to swallow.

The Australian duo completely deconstruct Pharrell’s retro-R&B flavored pop anthem, transforming it into a sprawling floorfiller that throbs with sinister synths and new vocal hooks (for example: “go, go, go girl!”). It’s a radical improvement on the original and a reminder of how good Kylie sounds when she opts for a harder dance sound. Let’s hope this remix gets a radio edit. Listen after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue “Robbed” Reunited Girl Band Atomic Kitten Of A Giant Hit: Morning Mix

:: Kylie Minogue has been labelled a thief (!) by English girl band Atomic Kitten. They claim that the Aussie diva’s global hit “Can’t Get You Out Of My head” was actually intended for them. Tough luck? [Digital Spy]

:: This is sad. Big Sean and Naya Rivera have reportedly called off their engagement and taken to Twitter to beef about who gets what. The Glee starlet has accused the MC of stealing jewelry from her house. Not exactly a fairytale ending then. [TMZ]

:: Here’s something for the sports fans. Drake is the surprise host of the 2014 ESPYs, which will be telecast live from Los Angeles on July 16. The MC is a good choice. After all, he’s the global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors. [Rolling Stone]

:: Missed Jay Z‘s Made In America documentary when it screened at the Toronto Film Festival or, later, on Showtime? Well, you’re in luck. Hov’s movie is coming to DVD in May. [AllHipHop]

Kylie Minogue’s “I Was Gonna Cancel” Lyric Video: Watch The Colorful Clip

Kylie Keeps Her Appointment With Her Next Single
Pharrell Williams is on a golden hot streak, having landed in the upper reaches of the charts worldwide over the past year with three tracks — that would be Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky,” Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” and Williams’ own “Happy.” And so it makes complete sense for Kylie Minogue to strike while the iron is red hot with her own Kiss Me Once cut written and produced by the musical man of the hour.

Kylie’s lyric video for “I Was Gonna Cancel” just premiered, and it keeps with her album artwork’s theme of splashed water on glass and bright, splashy pop dazzle. Give the neon-lit clip a watch above. More »

Whatcha Say: Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Stevie Nicks Got Our Readers Talking

Happy Friday, Idolator readers! This week was full of pop highs and lows — from Kesha‘s radiant return to the red carpet, to the announcement of Michael Jackson‘s posthumous record Xscape, to Miley’s heartbreaking on-stage breakdown after the loss of her beloved dog, Floyd. :(

There’s also plenty of promise on the horizon: Three pop divas announced their new singles — Lana Del Rey casually name-dropped her Ultraviolence lead single “West Coast,” Kylie Minogue opted for “I Was Gonna Cancel” and Katy Perry with “Birthday” — while the Mahomies will no doubt be pleased to learn that Austin Mahone’s debut, The Secret, is coming soon.

As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out some of the week’s best comments below! More »

Kylie Minogue Reveals That “I Was Gonna Cancel” Is The Next Official Single From ‘Kiss Me Once’

Kylie Minogue‘s Kiss Me Once campaign is something of a mystery. One minute she’s promoting classy lead single “Into The Blue”, the next she’s doing squats in stilettos as part of her random “Sexercize” initiative. It comes as something of a relief then, that the flawless 45-year-old labeled her saucy sex jam a buzz track in a recent Rolling Stone interview. But the official second single is just as curious.

When asked about working with the ubiquitous Pharrell, Kylie replied: “It was interesting — I had a meltdown on day two in the studio, but that gave way to a fantastic song ["I Was Gonna Cancel"], which will be my second single.” But wait there’s more. Enrique Iglesias duet “Beautiful” is a contender for single number three. “We’re hoping that’ll be a single as well,” she declares. “I hope we have four singles from the record — that’ll be amazing. ‘Kiss Me Once’ is a contender as well.”

Kylie Minogue Wows With “Into The Blue” At The 2014 Echo Awards In Berlin: Watch

She Deserves Two Kisses For This
Kylie Minogue has a long history of delivering the goods at the Echo Awards (the German equivalent of the Grammys). She brought the house down with a sexy rendition of “Red Blooded Woman” in 2004 and repeated the feat four years later with “In My Arms”. Last night’s (March 27) performance of “Into The Blue”, however, could be her best yet.

The pint-sized diva looked incredible in a tiny metallic dress — she basically wore a mirror ball! — and sexily strutted her stuff among an elaborate laser show with her gaggle of dancers. It was classy, sophisticated and super glamorous. In other words, quintessentially Kylie. Performances like this that make you wonder how “Into The Blue” failed to make a bigger impact. It’s a brilliant pop song and the 45-year-old is at the top of her game. Watch above. More »

Girls Take It Off: 14 Sexy Pics Of Pop Divas Baring Almost All In 2014 (Q1)

Sex sells. Nobody knows that better than our favorite pop stars, who are losing their clothes in magazines, videos and on social media at every opportunity. And it’s not just the usual suspects (Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus). Everybody is getting in on it, from the usually demure Selena Gomez to British girl-next-door Jessie J.

The phenomenon also transcends age and race. Madonna (55) recently posted a picture of her butt on Instagram, while Kylie Minogue (45) raised temperatures — and other things — in her eye-popping “Sexercize” video. Oh, and let’s not forget Beyonce (32). She made the entire internet blush with her hypersexual “Partition” visual. See the sexiest pop star antics of 2014 (thus far) up top. More »
