View the star-studded lineup for one of the biggest festivals of the year!

2014 was a drama-filled year for many, including Wiz Khalifa (his messy divorce with Amber Rose made major headlines). But for this new era, the rapper has decided to chill out and release some equally chill new music. His latest is a dual-track called “Refresh/Say No More,” with the latter featuring vocals from Ty Dolla $ign.

The first part is a smooth mid-tempo finds Khalifa at his most relaxed state, as he raps about smoking and feeling good. It then becomes even more languid once the second part kicks in with Ty’s warbled vocals. Both songs definitely have the potential to become a stoner’s anthem. Take a listen after the jump! More »

The Leading Men Of Pop Stripped Off In 2014: 20 Shirtless Pics

The Year Of Pop Star Booty
The Year Of Pop Star Booty
Pop star booty went mainstream in 2014 with more butt shaking and sexy snaps than ever.

What did pop stars do for a little harmless publicity before posting nudes on Instagram became an option? I guess they actually had to go out and perform their songs in front of real people. It must have been exhausting! While showing your nipples or butt is the hot trend on social media right now (think of all the likes and new followers!), many pop stars still prefer the good, old shirtless selfie.

It seems like every dude with a record deal stripped off for Insta in 2014. The usual suspects (Justin Bieber and Austin Mahone) were well accounted for, as were boy band members. The guys from 5 Seconds Of Summer and One Direction struggled to keep their shirts on, while British trio Union J took it a step further by losing their pants. The king of shirtless pics? That award goes to Nick Jonas and his frequently-flashed abs. Peruse the best pics up top. More »

Idolator's editors pick the best pop singles of 2014.

So, it turns out Wiz Khalifa did make a sex tape with Playboy bunny Carla Howe. Earlier this month, TMZ reported that the rapper’s explicit home movie was being shopped around to porn companies for a distribution deal. The Blacc Hollywood hitmaker acknowledged that the footage could exist, but claimed it was made without his consent. Which sounds a little disingenuous considering his sex partner tweeted a pic of them on the night they hooked up with the caption “makin a movie.”

As it turns out, the video does exist. Carla jumped on Twitter yesterday (December 15) to clarify the situation. “I’m not releasing no tape I can make more $ through my own modeling career,” the amateur filmmaker tweeted. “Don’t need to cash in on a tape which was made for private viewing and no intention for public viewing.” So there you have it. Kim Kardashian‘s sex tape crown is safe for now. See all the tweets after the jump. More »

The reason for the couple’s divorce has now been made public — cheating.

The… media personality (what does Amber actually do?) jumped on Twitter to deny accusations that she strayed. “Please stop with the fake stories,” she tweeted. “I would never ever ever cheat on my husband in a million years I think u guys know this. The blond bombshell then spilled the true tea. “Unfortunately my now ex husband can’t say the same… I’m devastated and crushed but my main focus is Sebastian. Thank u for all the support in this difficult time.” See her tweets after the jump. More »
