Here Is Cover Art For Demi Lovato’s New Album ‘Confident’

You ready?

Earlier this week, we got our first listen of Demi Lovato‘s new song Confident, which is the follow-up to her summer smash hit single Cool For the Summer and, we now know, is the title track of her new album. Demi confirmed that the title of her new album is, indeed, Confident with the release of the cover artwork for the release on her official Twitter profile. As you can see below, Demi‘s album cover is pretty damn sexy, if I do say so myself. I am in love with both singles Cool For the Summer and Confident and, as such, am extremely excited for the release of Demi‘s new album. Check out the artwork below and get excited with me. More »

Watch: Taylor Swift Performed ‘Smelly Cat’ In Concert With Lisa Kudrow From ‘Friends’

'Friends' for life
"Smelly cat / Smel-ly cat / What are they feeding you?"

Taylor Swift performed her 5th and final sold out concert at the Staples Center here in LA last night and, as expected, she brought out a few special guests to help make the night special for the folks in attendance. Among the special surprise guests that Taylor brought out on stage were her real life BFF Selena Gomez and pop star Justin Timberlake — which is cool and all, I have to say, but the really amazing moment of the night came when Taylor brought out Friends actress Lisa Kudrow to perform the Phoebe Buffay song Smelly Cat live on stage. OMG. Last weekend, Taylor brought out Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry as special guests during her Saturday night show so it’s clear that Tay Tay is a huge Friends fan (as are we all). But to have Lisa on stage to perform Smelly Cat is just WAY TOO MUCH. I love it! Taylor wisely decided to end her run of sold out Staples Center shows with a bang, and I approve greatly. Check out the video above to watch Taylor and Lisa perform Smelly Cat and have it brighten up your day considerably.

Mariah Carey Is Turning Her Xmas Song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Into A Children’s Picture Book

The Queen of Xmas strikes again

As August draws to a close, the time has come to start talking about … Xmas? It seems like the impact of Xmas starts earlier and earlier with each passing year, which is why it’s no surprise that today we learn that Mariah Carey will be releasing her first children’s book this holiday season. Mimi has partnered with Random House publishing to adapt her hugely successful holiday song All I Want For Christmas Is You into a picture book for children. As you will learn below, this children’s book uses the lyrics to Mariah‘s song to tell the story of a little girl (who looks like a cartoon version of MC) who hopes to get a puppy for Xmas. Yes, it is as cute as it sounds. Click below and see for yourselves. More »

Taylor Swift & Friends Slay LA At The Staples Center

Last night, at long last, I finally got to see Taylor Swift in concert and now I can honestly say that I understand what all of the hubbub is about. Taylor has set a new record for the most sold out nights at the Staples Center here in LA at one time (5 days) and last night was her 4th of 5 sold out performances. I luckily managed to procure a ticket for the show and was able to partake in the celebration with a bunch of very excited Los Angelinos. The show as over the top and really fun, I was very happy to be in attendance. More »

Following in the footsteps of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears & Beyoncé

MTV will air their annual Video Music Awards LIVE from the Microsoft Theater in downtown LA on Sunday August 30 and, as we learned last month, Miley Cyrus will be hosting this year’s affair.

Niall Horan & Louis Tomlinson Insist That One Direction Is Taking ‘A Break’ Not ‘Breaking Up’

"Don't worry though"

Yesterday we learned of a horribly tragic report that made the bold claim that the members of the British boyband One Direction are planning to “separate” in order to take on individual solo projects after they release their next album next year. At the time of the reporting, the PR team for 1D offered suspicious “no comments” in response to the break-up claim. Today we are hearing from 2 members of One Direction who insist that the group is NOT breaking up for good and clarify that the group is merely “taking a break” from boybanding … which, I’m sure may agree, sounds an awful lot like a prelude to a break-up. BUT, a promise is a promise and Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson SWEAR that we shouldn’t “worry” because One Direction isn’t “going anywhere”. More »

Ryan Adams Suggests His Cover Of Taylor Swift’s ’1989′ Album May Be Released ‘VSoon’

"#1989 update"

Last week, we got to hear a tiny portion of Ryan Adams‘s cover of Taylor Swift‘s song Shake It Off, as featured Adams‘s version of Swift‘s album 1989 — which he has been recording for a few weeks now. Today we get the “update people have been asking for” regarding the progress of Ryan‘s version of 1989 … and it’s a good one. Ryan tells us that the album will be fully completed this week and he suggests (without coming right out and saying so) that the album may be released “very soon”. As you can read below, Ryan says there is only one step left for the album to be completely finished and … ready for release? HMMMMM. Read on. More »

FYF Fest, Day 2

The TV Guide

Yesterday was day 2 of the FYF Fest here in LA and I had another great day of live music with about 30K Los Angelinos at the LA Coliseum park. Before I made my way to the fest, I met up with Eileen for a late brunch hang — which was fun — and then I was off to meet up with some peeps at FYF. As much as I enjoyed myself at the festival on Saturday, I was really excited for day 2 yesterday because Morrissey was the headline performer. Before Moz, I got to see really great sets by Spiritualized, Mac DeMarco, HEALTH, Death Grips and FKA twigs. Each performance was really great so I’d be hard-pressed to pick the best one … but I will say that I enjoyed everyone so much that it would be unnecessary to pick a fave … which was probably Morrissey for me :D More »

First Listen: Demi Lovato’s New Song ‘Confident’ Leaks To The Internets

Cool for the Autumn

Back in June, Demi Lovato‘s smash summer hit Cool For The Summer made its debut online just a few weeks before the official music video was unleashed … almost immediately making it my fave song of the summer. Today we get our first listen of Demi‘s next offering, a song titled Confident which has made its early debut online (eg. it leaked). As I understand it, Confident was originally meant to be the song that Demi was going to release this summer (which was replaced by Cool For The Summer) so it makes sense that it would be the next song to come from her forthcoming new album. Click below to hear Confident and get your first listen of Demi‘s next HIT song. More »
