JHUD is the Truth
All day I’ve been in Scandal-ville (a gallery here, another one here), but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Throwback Thursday! Jennifer Hudson‘s new album JHUD is getting ready to drop, and sometimes I forget how much I’m kind of obsessed with her. J-Hud is amazing. And the whole world realized that when Dreamgirls came out back in 2006, and she had movie-goers on their feet with that epic I Am Telling You scene. CHILLLLllllls. And the rest of the soundtrack was pretty incredible too. Click inside for more!
Last month, Hilary Duff released a new song titled All About You followed by a cute lyric video for the song … which will be featured on Hilary‘s as-yet-untitled new album, supposedly due out next month. Today we get to see the just-released music video for All About You which proves, once and for all, that Hil D. is BACK! In the video, Hilary creeps on a hot guy (with her Amazon Fire Phone) and then uses her sleuthing skills to find this mysterious but hot stranger using only a vinyl album that he accidentally left behind. It’s actually less cheesy than it sounds while watching the video … which you can do by clicking the embed above.
This would have been incredible.
Seth Rogen and James Franco have some seriously hilarious Kanye West stories under their belt. This one is hilarious. Apparently, Kanye lit’rally called Seth Rogen up one day, and pitched him an idea that was probably the worst idea, but also would have been incredible. I’m so, so, sad that this didn’t happen. Remember the Bound 2 video? Yeah, no, me too. I’ve also deleted that from my memory for all time. But, remember Seth and James‘s Bound 2 parody, Bound 3? Of course you do. Well, Kanye loved that video so much, he made a special request to see it live… at his wedding. LMAO… please click inside for more!
"She got the boom / Shake the room"
Booty is so hot right now. After Nicki Minaj dropped her music video for Anaconda last month, Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea had to step up their game with the music video for their Booty remix and as you can see above, they have come out with
guns buns blazing. If you thought the music video preview that they dropped a couple of weeks ago was hot, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Check out the just-released video for Booty above and have a booty-ful night :D
I don't care that the song is only 2 years old. I'm DOING this.
This week is full of good omens. Frank Ocean announced that he’s in the studio cooking up some stuff for his follow-up album, and the other guy I’d have babies by if I wasn’t already overwhelmed with babies (what?) is also working on his sophomore effort. Kendrick Lamar just announced his upcoming single and released the album art, and I lit’rally gasped with excitement. I know for Throwback Thursday I usually take it back to the ’90s, or the early 2000s, but dammit! I wanna relive good kid, m.A.A.d. city! So, bitches, don’t kill my vibe and click inside for more!
Last week we learned that Time magazine ranked Mariah Carey as THE Ultimate Pop Star of all pop stars and today, she’s got a bit more cred to back up that honor. Mariah Carey has surpassed the 1 billion views count on Vevo … which means that as the Ultimate Pop Star, she has generated a whole lotta views online.

But why am I just now discovering King Krule?!
The Smith family doesn’t always get my attention in the most positive way, but I like to keep an ear out for new Willow Smith music. She’s released a few fun tracks over the years and now she’s back with a cover of a King Krule track. I actually hadn’t heard of this artist until now, but I dig his original version as well.

Guess what? There's a lot of BOOTY in the music video
Last month we learned that Jennifer Lopez teamed up with Iggy Azalea for a remix of her new single Booty and today we get our first look at the music video the ladies have put together for the clip. 2014 will go down as the Summer of Booty with the massive success of songs like All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor, Anaconda by Nicki Minaj and Booty by Jennifer Lopez & Iggy Azalea. Click the embed above to preview the new Booty music video and see how well J. Lo and Iggy‘s booties work together. Enjoy.
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!
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.
