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 »
YES! YES! YES! Last month Madonna teased us with the news that plans were “in the works” for a new album and at the time, she was reluctant to let us know who she would be working with on new music.

It looks like work on Madonna‘s next album is WELL underway. More »

"I got a little teary"
Last weekend we got to see video of Bruce Springsteen performing a cover of Lorde‘s worldwide smash hit song Royals during a concert stop in her native New Zealand. Today we are hearing from Lorde about that cover performance and the effect it had on her. Rolling Stone magazine caught up with Lorde and talked to her about Springsteen‘s musical tribute to her song. She also gushed a bit about the fact that her debut album Pure Heroine has surpassed the 1 million albums sold mark. All in all, it sounds like life is pretty dang sweet for Miss Lorde these days. It’s ok to be jealous. More »

On Wednesday night, the one and only PRINCE took over the entirety of The Arsenio Hall Show (which you can watch in full HERE) but last night, it was back to business as usual on the late night talk show. Rick Ross was scheduled to perform on the show — which he did — but he brought along a couple of friends to perform with him … much to the surprise and glee of everyone in attendance. Kanye West and Big Sean were Rick Ross‘s special surprise guests during his performance of Sanctified last night. Click the embed above to watch this performance. I guess you never know where Kanye West will pop up these days.
So much YES!

Last night Prince and his bands 3rd Eye Girl and New Power Generation staged a complete take-over of The Arsenio Hall Show, which provides us today with a lot of great video to watch. The show got started with Prince and 3rd Eye Girl performing their new song FunkNRoll and then the party just kept on going from there. Prince sat down for an interview with Arsenio, the two talking like longtime very good friends. Prince and 3rd Eye Girl performed the classic songs She’s Always in My Hair and Mutiny — you can watch individual video of each of those performances below … as well as the entire hour-long episode of The Arsenio Hall Show. If you have the time, the whole ep is worth watching. Not only are the interviews great (Prince even answered a few questions from fans in the audience) but you can also watch a live performance by Prince‘s featured vocalist Liv Warfield … AND, watch a weird bit where Prince helps a guy break-up with his girlfriend. Yeah, that part was really strange but overall, the whole episode made for really great TV. Check out all the great video provided and please enjoy. Would it be great if Prince took over TV shows more often? More »

Yesterday evening I got to hang out with Tamar for a showing of The LEGO Movie even tho I had already seen it with my friend Courtney a few weeks ago. Tam had yet to see it and I wanted to spend time with Tam so it was win/win for both of us. I loved the movie just as much as I did when I originally saw it so I can attest that the movie is worth multiple viewings. After the movie, I made my way to The Mayan Theater in downtown LA to see the industrial band Skinny Puppy live in concert. I’ve been a fan of SP for many, many years and it’s been quite a few years since I last saw them in concert so … yeah, I was really excited to see them live again. More »

And it's pretty damn sick
Jennifer Lopez is hellbent on winning back the fans who fell in love with her music when she first burst onto the scene back in the late 90s because today, she has unleashed one of the hottest songs she’s released in probably the past 10 years. J. Lo teamed up with rapper French Montana for a new song titled I Luh Ya Papi (which is Spanglish, I believe, for I love you Daddy) and as you can hear in the video embedded above, she comes on strong with this return to her old urban sound. The song sounds deceptively simple but after one listen, I’m already hooked. Give it a listen, see what you think. I am now even more excited for the release of her next album. If this is a sign of what’s to come, I will be very happy to return to the J. Lo fold.
