Nicole Scherzinger’s “Boomerang”: Hear The Dance Single

Hey, Scherzy’s back! Yes, the unluckiest pop star of them all, Nicole Scherzinger, who has still (still!) never released a solo album in the United States despite having plans to do so for the last six years — Her Name Is Nicole was scrapped altogether and an American release of Killer Love was canceled — is back with a new single, “Boomerang.” But despite the unholy union of Scherzinger and will.i.am, who produced the song, it’s actually pretty good!

Boom!
Hey! Remember Nicole Scherzinger? She’s sure been kicking around the music industry for a minute, hasn’t she? She was the only one who sang in The Pussycat Dolls, and then she was a judge on The X Factor, and then she was replaced by Britney Spears after stealing a precious, innocent child’s dreams, and then she never actually released a solo album in America because Her Name Is Nicole was scrapped and the stateside release of Killer Love was pushed back indefinitely? Yes, that Nicole!  More »

Sorry Mimi, But Christina Aguilera Is Probably On Team Nicki: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Christina Aguilera skated around questions about the feud between American Idol judges Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey. While she didn’t pick sides, the singer seems to be one of the Barbz: she gushed about Minaj and stayed silent on Mimi before saying she’s “sure they’ll be great” on Idol. [That Grape Juice]

:: Madonna posted a photo announcing she had just taped a full episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on October 9. The episode will air on October 29. [Facebook]

:: Former Girls Aloud member Cheryl Cole said her former X Factor colleague (and former Pussycat Dolls member) Nicole Scherzinger displayed “crazy and odd” behavior when they first met. In a leaked excerpt of her autobiography Cheryl – My Story, Cole claims Scherz sang “Promise This” in its entirety right in Cheryl’s face. [Digital Spy]

:: Justin Bieber tweeted on Wednesday (October 10) that someone had stolen his laptop and camera during the prior day’s show in Tacoma, WA. Bieber tweeted: “really sucks. people should respect other’s property”…”i had a lot of personal footage on that computer and camera and that is what bothers me the most. #lame #norespect”. Dude can’t catch a break. [Oh No They Didn't]

:: In an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, Kelly Clarkson hinted she may be ready to tie the knot with boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. “I’m from a family of broken marriages, but we will definitely break that trend one day…I’m completely head over heels for him, he knows that.” The two have been dating since 2011.

Nicole Scherzinger Talks Bulimia & Pussycat Dolls Drama On ‘Behind The Music’: Watch

Will.i.am & Nicole Scherzinger’s “Hoola Hoop” Video Has “Leaked”: Watch

Will & Nicole Shake It To The Ground
While Will.i.am was off playing his song “Reach For The Stars” on Mars, his video for Nicole Scherzinger collaboration “Hoola Hoop” was leaked online. Well, okay — that’s what Will would like you to think. In this “unfinished” clip by “William Willitleak” and “Nicci Sundae”, the pair are unrecognizable as they don animated bandanas bandit-style across their faces.

But Will’s Auto-Tuned rapping (about curvy butts and going “schwang”) is unmistakeable, as are Nicole’s breathy vocals and naughty bump-and-grind moves. (And dig that Rye Rye “Shake It To The Ground” sample.) The song is off will.i.am’s upcoming LP #willpower (out October 15). More »

Will.i.am Releases ‘#Willpower’ Tracklist Featuring Britney Spears, Rihanna, Justin Bieber & More

It’s time for another Black Eyed Pea to go solo. The prolific will.i.am is readying to drop his fourth studio album (and his first since 2007), and he’s not taking any chances that the LP will be ignored. His roster of guests features seemingly about half of the recording artists who routinely populate the Top 40 these days, from Rihanna to Justin Bieber to Redfoo to David Guetta to Chris Brown to Britney Spears, along with plenty of others. Check out the tracklist below. More »

Nicole Scherzinger Heats Up The Hollywood Bowl

“So excited @HollywoodBowl about to go on stage w/ my boys!@apl_de, @iamwill and @TabBep…Filipino love!,” Nicole Scherzinger excitedly tweeted on Sunday night (July 8) before joining the boys of the Black Eyed Peas at A Celebration Of Global Filipino Music. (Surprised that the ex-X Factor judge was included in the Los Angeles event? Well, it turns out the pop star’s father is of Filipino descent. Look at that, you just learned something.) If Nicole’s presence didn’t steal the show, her outfit certainly did. The Men In Black III star had eyes popping over her revealing ensemble: a midriff-baring tank top and pair of sexy schizophrenic bottoms (half pants, half shorts).

Below watch the former Pussycat Doll rock L.A.’s Hollywood Bowl with “Right There” and take over Fergie’s verses on BEP’s “Where Is The Love?” More »

Will.i.am Enlists Justin Bieber, Ne-Yo And More On Solo Album

Will.i.am has already revealed some of the people who he’s worked with on his solo album, #willpower, including LMFAO, Britney Spears, Shakira, Alicia Keys and her hubby, Swizz Beatz — just to name a few. But he recently told Billboard some other pop heavyweights like Justin Bieber and Ne-Yo are on board too. (Seriously, who isn’t working on this record?) Like his eclectic selection of collaborators, he also cites an array of musical genres when describing how the LP will sound.

“There’s classical s—, like just me and a guitar and an orchestra or me with just an orchestra and a kid’s choir,” he said. “There’s some ghetto, ugly, dirty stuff. And then there’s dance stuff, global world stuff and, like, avant garde, left-of-center, for-art’s-sake music that has nothing to do with getting played on the radio. I’m just art-ing out. It’s pretty diverse.” More »

Nicole Scherzinger Is An ‘X Factor’ Judge Again

Is it just us, or do we need a whole separate X Factor show that’s just about the selection of the judges? We suppose it’s only fitting for a singing competition to feature the celebrity judges playing musical chairs, but we must admit, we never expected to see Nicole Scherzinger back on the panel! But this time, she’s filling a seat on the UK version of the show — replacing Kelly Rowland permanently, after a guest stint apparently went over well. More »

Nicole Scherzinger Hits Wall Street To Promote ‘Men In Black 3′

With just two days until Men In Black 3 opens in theaters (May 25), it’s no surprise the cast members are on a publicity blitz. Thankfully, Nicole Scherzinger, aka MIB 3‘s Lilly Poison, had a much friendlier encounter while promoting the popcorn flick than did her costar Will Smith. The former X Factor judge was on Wall Street today along with an entourage of men — dressed in black suits, obviously — to ring the opening bell at NASDAQ. The sultry songbird looked sharp in her business suit as she adorably hammed it up for the cameras. But we’re still not sure what the stock exchange has to do with the upcoming sci-fi movie. Any insights?
