The World Premiere
Earlier this month we learned that pop newcomer Ariana Grande has teamed up with Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea for her new single Problem, the first from her forthcoming sophomore album. A few days later, we got our first listen of the song when Ariana shared a snippet of music on Instagram. The song isn’t due for official release until tomorrow but she did world premiere the song last night in a live performance at The Radio Disney Music Awards. Sporting a pair of cute glitter Mickey Mouse ears, Ariana performed Problem in full (Iggy Azalea did not perform with her, tho). The song features the same horny horns saxophone sound that Paula Abdul utilized in her song Vibeology way back in 1991 so, duh, I love it. Check out Ariana‘s live performance of Problem above.

I love Kylie Minogue so much. I have loved her since her debut album Kylie was released way back in 1998 when I would play the cassette over and over and over until I wore it out and had to replace it with another. I still love Kylie very much. Her new album Kiss Me Once is a good album but I’m kind of bummed that it’s not a great album (I feel the exact same way about Britney Spears‘s most recent album Britney Jean). Earlier this month, we got to see the lyric video for the second single from Kiss Me Once, the Pharrell produced song I Was Gonna Cancel. Last night in Australia, Kylie performed I Was Gonna Cancel at The Logie Awards and as you can see in the video above, it was just an OK performance. Actually, it was a meh performance. I want to love the song so much but it’s just not a hit single for me. The song sounds much more exciting when it’s remixed by The Presets:
Right? Isn’t this a much better version of the song? Still, I love Kylie and I hope she is able to do great things this this single and her new album. This performance just leaves me wanting more. I hope we get more soon.
I mean, why not?
Earlier we saw video of Zac Efron getting shirtless to accept his Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards Sunday night and right now, we get to see a batch of photos of, well, Zac Efron getting shirtless to accept his Best Shirtless Performance award at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. So many photos were snapped of shirtless Zac on stage that it would be a shame not to share them. Now you can watch video of shirtless Zac or just look at photos of shirtless Zac to your hearts’ content. Never has Zac Efron been more deserving of an award in his entire career. Congrats, sir. Congrats.
A Perfect Match
Despite the fact that neither one of them was nominated for an award and the fact that their song has nothing to do with movies in any way, Eminem and Rihanna performed their hit song The Monster tonight on the MTV Movie Awards. As you can see above, Em and Ri Ri kinda slayed the awards show with their killer performance, giving fans a taste of what they might expect when the pair perform their 3 city tour later this year.

"You know, I'm starting to wonder"
After she famously fell during the Academy Awards telecast last year and then again on the Oscars red carpet this year, some people are starting to believe that Jennifer Lawrence‘s clumsy/stumbly behavior is not genuine. Chief among the folks who believe J. Law‘s behavior to be an act is Jared Leto, who has gotten to spend a lot of time around Jennifer during awards season this year. In new comments made by Leto, he makes clear that he is suspicious of Jennifer‘s clumsy behavior. More »
Blue sings the cutest 'Surfbort' you'll ever hear
Remember early last month when we got to see that collection of Beyoncé photos that were snapped during rehearsals for the Grammy Awards this year? Yeah, well, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Video of Bey‘s Grammy Awards rehearsal has made its way online that is just TOO ADORABLE for its own good. Bey performs Drunk in Love in its entirety (with a guy standing in for Jay Z) and at the end of the video, we can hear Blue Ivy singing Surfbort!!!!! And if that wasn’t cute enough, Blue also offers up a Hi, Mommy as well. People, prepare do die from cuteness overload. More »
Spider-Man <3 Batkid
Earlier today the New York Post published a story claiming that Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield bailed on appearing during the Academy Awards telecast with Miles Scott (aka that adorable Batkid who enjoyed an epic Make-A-Wish dream come true in San Francisco last year) due to his alleged diva behavior. Honestly, I had a hard time believing the story but these days, it’s not always easy to know what to believe. In response to the NYPost story, Andrew Garfield is denying that he bailed on Batkid and, instead, places the blame on the Oscar producers. According to Garfield, he and Batkid are BFFs … which is a story that I would much rather believe. More »
