So instead we… More »
The second quarter of 2014 delivered a veritable onslaught of sexy pics from our favorite pop divas. Leading the charge was the holy queen of unnecessary nudity Rihanna. She posed topless (and bottomless) for French men’s magazine Lui and then posted the pics on Instagram, which led to her account being temporarily deleted. She never… More »
The whole concept of Jennifer Lopez’s A.K.A. album is that she’s still the same girl who rode the six and dreamed of finding stardom.

The good news: Mariah Carey has landed her 17th Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 with Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, which debuts on the chart at #3. The bad news: The album only sold 58,000 copies in its first week, i.e. just below the low-end (60,000) of what Billboard had been… More »

:: When T-Pain wrote songs with Justin Bieber back in February, he was shocked by the results, calling it “the best R&B music” he’s heard in years. “I haven’t heard music like this since, like, early 2000s, ’90s,” he says. [MTV]

I guess hell finally froze over! Mariah Carey gave her limo driver the night off and rode the subway home from a gala event wearing a floor-length couture ball gown. Mimi looked like she was having a great time but brought along two burly bodyguards to be safe. She also wore gloves to compliment her ensemble (and… More »

I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, we’ve compiled her five best high notes from her singles over the past 24 years in one ear-splitting… More »
Mariah Carey’s Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse is one of the artistic high points of the superstar’s long and glittering career but that hasn’t translated into bumper sales. The album is predicted to sell between 60,000 and 65,000 in its opening week, which should snare a top five debut on the Billboard 200. More »
Last night at the World Music Awards in Monte-Carlo, Monaco, Mariah Carey took home the Pop Icon Award for having the most number one singles in America, but not without reaffirming her true diva status first.

Forget about the ridiculous title, botched rollout and highly questionable cover art. Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse is an incredibly solid LP that makes much more sense as a complete body of work than the long trail of mystifying buzz singles would have you believe. It’s a concept album of sorts, a… More »
