Adam Levine enlists the aid of his fellow 'Voice' judge
Maroon 5‘s newest album V is out in stores now and as you can hear above, it features a song titled My Heart is Open … which features guest vocals by Gwen Stefani. Gwen, as you may know, is one of the new judge/coaches alongside Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine on The Voice so it makes sense that the two would collaborate on a song together to promote both the album and their TV show. PERSONALLY, I’m much more interested in new solo Gwen music but I’ll take what I can get (even tho this new Maroon 5 song sounds a lot like every other Maroon 5 song that I’ve ever heard). Have a listen to My Heart is Open above and see what you think.
The original 'Barbie Girl' and more!
So, it’s official. I want it to be 1998 again, forever. Like, if I were in Midnight in Paris, that’s the time I’d want to go back to, and I’d stay there and life would be happy. A few #ThrowbackThursdays ago we celebrated 1998 with The Nostalgia Machine. And today I’m feeling hella nostalgic, seeing as how my very first baby took it upon himself to turn 6 years old today. I always see those Now That’s What I Call Music commercials—we are up to Now That’s What I Call Music 51—and today I finally looked up the discography for the for the very first one (at least the first American version). It was released in 1998, which means we are headed back to my favorite year again today. Click inside for 6 (shouts out to my firstborn) of my favorite tracks for the first compilation!
Something to tide you over until his album is released next month
In early July we learned that the incomparable Ryan Adams will be releasing a new, self-titled solo album in September but today, I’ve got something for you fans too anxious to wait for the album to drop. Ryan has also released an EP of punk songs on 7″ vinyl that includes 10 songs that should tide us over until his full length album is released on September 9. Click the embed above to hear his new EP 1984 in full. It really is a great collection of songs. If this is what his EP sounds like, I can wait to hear what the full-length album sounds like.

Caution: Douchebaggery Ahead
Justin Bieber managed to make it thru a day without having the police called on him (well, since we last heard about the police being called on him) but after you watch the video below, you may want to file a police report for crimes against the humanities. JB posted a short video on his official Instagram profile that is likely to anger quite a few Johnny Cash fans. In the video, Bieber and his BFF Khalili Sharieff (the guy he got arrested with back in January for allegedly drag racing in Miami, FL) perform a short cover of Cash‘s iconic song Ring of Fire. You know you want to hear it below, right? More »
Oh my gosh, lookit those butts
Back in June, rapper Iggy Azalea let it be known that her “booty crush” is Jennifer Lopez … so it’s fitting that Iggy was asked by J. Lo to guest on the remix of her new single Booty. Earlier this month, Jenny showed us the cover of the standard version of Booty … today, we get to see the remix cover that also features Iggy — OH, and we get to hear the remix, too.

Her new album 'Sucker' is out this fall
Charli XCX, one of the most exciting pop stars around right now (who is NOT getting the solo recognition that she deserves, tbqh), has unleashed a music video for her new single Break The Rules which reminds us that music videos are meant to be fun. In the clip, Charli and her friends go back to school to crash a prom and run into an unruly adult chaperone, played by Rose McGowan. The clip ends with a clever homage to the horror prom movie Carrie which you simply have to see for yourselves. Break The Rules will be featured on Charli‘s upcoming new album Sucker, which hits stores on October 21. According to Charli, she wants this new album to inspire young girls to punk heights:
“I remember when I first began writing it, I wanted to write an album that I would’ve been obsessed with when I was 14. I would love to see a punk revolution, and loads of 14-year-old girls with shaved heads. I would love for girls to be able to celebrate this record.”
I love Charli XCX so much. Her song Boom Clap, from the soundtrack to The Fault in Our Stars, is one of my fave songs of the year thus far … and now I can add Break The Rules to that list as well. Check out the video, fall in love and DO seek out more of Charli‘s music. She is deffo the pop star that you don’t even know you LOVE.
