The 7th Annual
It’s that time of year again … time for The Killers to release their annual Xmas single. For the past 7 years The Killers have released an original Xmas single (including last year’s The Cowboys’ Christmas Ball) and this year they bring us not very festive track I Feel It In My Bones. As you can see above, singer Brandon Flowers croons his letter to Santa Claus making his annual Xmas plea. While I may gravitate more toward Xmas music from someone like, say, Mariah Carey, I can see how some fans might dig The Killers‘ spin on Xmas cheer. Check out the video, see what you think.
"Meet my new little baby girl"
Momney Spears has updated her official Facebook profile in order to formally introduce her new puppy Hannah to the world. As you may recall, we saw photos of our dear Britney Spears out and about with her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James last week and in her arms, Brit Brit carried little Hannah close to her bosom. Today we get a better look at Hannah in her coming out photo shared by Britney on Facebook. Click below to see just how adorable Brit‘s little baby girl is. More »
Cher's World, Actually
Cher‘s back. Yes, ’tis true. While everyone here in the US was gorging themselves on Thanksgiving dinner, the immortal Cher quietly released a new single titled Woman’s World. As I understand it, a demo version of the song leaked online earlier this week so Cher‘s record label decided to get ahead of the leak and release the single themselves. Cher is reportedly working on a new album that is as-yet untitled (therefore, likely to NOT be released this year) and Woman’s World is the first taste of her new sound. It’s clubby and a bit generic for my taste but, well, check out the embed above and see what you think. Who here is happy for Cher‘s return?!

"I Know you want it now / Want it now / Want it now"
Remember that snippet of new music that we heard from Ashlee Simpson that was released at the start of the month? Yeah, well, the full song titled Bat for a Heart has made it’s way to the Internets for our listening (dis)pleasure and, well, why don’t YOU click the video above and give it a listen. I feel no shame whatsoever in saying that I desperately loved Ashlee‘s debut album Autobiography. Even when the music that followed wasn’t all that amazing, I considered myself a fan. I’m not sure what to make of this new song. I don’t think I understand the lyrics, so the song meaning doesn’t make much sense. I don’t know what “a bat for a heart sucking up air” is supposed to mean. Does anyone know? As for the full song, do you like it? Can someone tell me what I’m missing?
ALL EYEZ ON US
Britney Spears‘s new song with will.i.am titled Scream & Shout isn’t due to be released until midnight tonight but the song managed to leak its way to the Internets over the weekend. Right now, we get to hear the freshly leaked uncensored and explicit version of the song which features our dear Britney Spears using her potty mouth to say the word “shit” … as in, you’re gonna turn this shit up. LOL. Folks I am in LOVE with this song. I’ve been listening to it on repeat since it leaked and LORD HAVE MERCY am I HOOKED! This uncensored version is fun but be warned, you might not want to blast this if you’re at work right now. Take a listen below. More »
"Bring The Action"
Yesterday we learned that Britney Spears and will.i.am are planning to release their new single Scream & Shout on Monday. Late last night, the full song leaked to the Interwebs courtesy of the blog Love B. Scott. I’m not sure how long the embed will stay online so take a listen while you can. I’ve listened to the song a few times already and I really like it. YES, I realize it’s a will.i.am track and Britney is only guesting on it … but her performance on the track is really damn fun. She takes the chorus and there’s even a cameo of her famous It’s Britney, Bitch line. Brilliant. While I would LOVE for Britney to release a new single all her own, I am quite satisfied with this little treat of a song. Britney makes will.i.am listenable, for that reason alone she deserves praise. What do y’all think of this track? Does it make you want to “turn this sh*t up”?
"We are all misfits living in a world on fire"
In the past few weeks we’ve heard the new songs Catch My Breath and Don’t Rush (featuring Vince Gill) from Kelly Clarkson, who is readying the release of her first ever greatest hits compilation titled Greatest Hits — Chapter 1. Today we get to hear another new song from Kelly … this one titled People Like Us. As you can hear above, the song has a distinctive anthemic sound but … I, personally, am not feeling it. I think I understand what the song lyrics are meant to convey but … I dunno, I guess the song just doesn’t work for me. Take a listen, see what you think. Do you like this new Kelly Clarkson song?
Lest you think music legend Prince is off somewhere resting on his laurels, I’m here to tell you that he is not … in fact, he is hard at work creating new music for us to enjoy. Prince will be releasing a new single titled Rock and Roll Love Affair on November 22 and today we get to see the official cover artwork for the single. As you can see, Prince is rockin’ a funky new afro these days … click below to see the single art for this new track and get excited, y’all! We have new Prince music on the way. More »
These Song Titles Are... Something Else
As we all know, Rihanna is getting ready for the release of her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. And by “getting ready” I mean she’s been dressing up as weed, getting back with old boyfriends we loathe, and talking about those old boyfriends in Vogue. Okay. No, here’s what she’s really been doing: releasing new singles called Diamonds, and cover art for the album, and new stills from the upcoming video. And now, she’s putting out her tracklist. There’s one song in PARTICULAR, that’s got me raising all two of my eyebrows (simultaneously and then… consecutively). So yeah. Click inside for more!

"When the snow is falling down, down, down ..."
It seems like Xmas comes sooner and sooner with each passing year and this year is no exception. Hallowe’en is barely over and folks are already releasing their Xmas singles! Altho we are still a few weeks away from the Thanksgiving holiday, Backstreet Boys want us to start thinking about Xmas … with the release of their new Xmas single titled It’s Christmas Time Again.
