Nicki Minaj entertained the NBA All-Star Game crowd on Sunday at Orlando’s Amway Center by performing her new hit “Starships”
as well as last year’s summer jam “Super Bass”
, the latter of which required a wig color swap from lime green to purple. Meanwhile, Pitbull headlined during halftime with an array of hits and guests that included not only his “Give Me Everything”
collaborators Ne-Yo and Nayer, but also Chris Brown. Breezy did vocal chores on the Miami MC’s “International Love”
and also offered a few lines from his own single “Turn Up The Music”
during the medley. Be a sport and watch below.
The big night has finally arrived! At last year’s MTV Video Music Awards,
we were treated to show-stopping performances by the likes of Eminem and Rihanna, Taylor Swift, and Florence + The Machine. This year’s lineup is possibly even more enticing, with Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Adele, Bruno Mars, Lil Wayne, The Throne, and the pregnant Beyonce
amongst the talents on hand. We’ll update this post as performances as appear online throughout the night. Head below to see Lady Gaga (or is that Jo Calderone?) doing “You & I”
and the pre-show’s “You Make Me Feel”
from Cobra Starship featuring Sabi, among many others. Who stole the show?
Did You Hear?
:: Ke$ha continues to spread her musical wings by appearing on rock legend Alice Cooper’s new album Welcome 2 My Nightmare. We’re sure they did shots on the hood of her car (and pretty much everywhere else) before hitting the studio. [Pop Dust]
:: See the men of Glee dressed as The Village People. Surely Chris Colfer would have made a better cop than Mark Salling? [Pink Is The New Blog]
:: Fantasia Barrino is pregnant with her second child. The father is yet to be revealed. [Pop Crush]
:: After making a brief cameo on Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything”, Nayer is back with a hot new song of her own. [Just Jared]
:: In addition to being named one of our top 11 new ladies of pop, Skylar Grey also nailed her album showcase in San Francisco. [Music & Lyrics]
After the jump, find out which music acts will be appearing on the tube today.
is about to revolve into the hands of music buyers (it’s out on Tuesday, June 21), and with current single “Give Me Everything”
lodged at #2 on the Billboard
Hot 100 for yet another week, Pitbull brought his collaborators Ne-Yo and Nayer onto the Tonight Show
for an energetic performance. The trio proceeded to whip Jay Leno’s audience into a dance floor frenzy. Will their radio smash finally unseat Adele and climb to #1 next week? Hit the club after the jump.
Pitbull brings along his friends Afrojack, Ne-Yo and Nayer for the party that is his “Give Me Everything” video. The dance-pop track is the second single from Mr. Worldwide’s upcoming Planet Pit
LP, and there’s naturally a little (and by a little we mean a lot) product placement, given that the rapper is involved with the “So Kodak” campaign
. Say cheese after the jump.
