Last December, Miley Cyrus released her sexy ballad Adore You which garnered much attention because of how porny the video looked. Today, Miley drops a remix of Adore You that amps up the tempo of her ballad and turns it into a clubby dance track. Cedric Gervais is responsible for this remix and I have to day … I much prefer the song as an uptempo song to dance to. Click the embed above to hear the Miley Cyrus vs. Cedric Gervais remix of Adore You and see if it makes you want to dance. The video features all of the supersexy scenes that are included in the original music video for Adore You so you may want to watch with caution. Please enjoy.
Yesterday we got to hear a tiny portion of Kylie Minogue‘s new duet with fellow popstar Enrique Iglesias in the Kiss Me Once album sampler that I posted and today we get to hear a much longer portion of the song. Beautiful will be included both on Kylie‘s new album Kiss Me Once and on Enrique‘s new album Sex and Love and as you can hear above, the pair make beautiful music together (har har). Honestly, I’m not really crazy of the use of auto-tune in parts of the song but the lyrics are sweet and I can hear how this may turn out to be a really great ballad. I’d love to hear a more stripped down version of the song without the audio manipulation but, I guess, this is what the song will sound like in the final album version. Have a listen above and see what you think.
"We weren't expecting ... that level of insult"
Late last month, as you may recall, Trent Reznor blasted the producers of The Grammy Awards for the way they treated his Nine Inch Nails performance at the close of the Grammy Awards this year. During NIN‘s finale performance (which also featured Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age), producers cut off the end of the supergroup’s performance so that they could air commercial ads. Reznor‘s response was, F***k you. In a new interview that Trent gave to promote NIN‘s upcoming tour of New Zealand, he talks at some length about the Grammy Awards debacle and he makes very clear that he will never perform on the Grammys ever again. The rest of the interview is really a great read … Reznor also talks about Beats Music, 40 unreleased demo songs that may one day see the light of day and he talks a bit about the musical score he is working on for the new David Fincher film Gone Girl.

"I'm Jimmy Fallon and I’ll be your host … for now."
About 2 weeks ago, Jay Leno stepped down as host of the late night talk show The Tonight Show so that he could pass the baton on to new host Jimmy Fallon. Last night, Fallon hosted his first episode of The Tonight Show to some fanfare. For the most part, Jimmy‘s Tonight Show felt similar to his long-running stint as host of Late Night so longtime fans were likely pleased with his debut last night. Jimmy brought out guests U2 and Will Smith along with a strong of surprise guest stars who wanted to cameo on Fallon‘s first episode of The Tonight Show. Click below to watch lots of video highlights from last night’s Tonight Show and see how much fun this new era of late night talk will be. More »

Preview every song on Kylie's new album
Kylie Minogue will drop her new album Kiss Me Once on March 18 and to get us all excited for its release, she is giving us an album sampler that lets us preview the 11 songs on the standard version of her album. As you already know, Kylie has released the album’s first single Into The Blue but to tide us over until the entirety of her Kiss Me Once album is released, she gives us snippets of the songs on her album in the video embedded above. Take a listen and see what you think. It’s hard to judge an album based on snippets but I am happy to say that I like what I hear thus far. The sound is classic Kylie but with an updated feel, exactly what she is hoping to go for, I think. Sample Kiss Me Once above and then let me know what you think below.
From the 'Femme Fatale' Era
Over the weekend a previously unreleased Britney Spears song titled Unbroken made its way to the Internets and as you can hear in the embed above, the track is a pretty sweet offering for Britney fans. Snippets of the song surfaced online before but this is the first time the entire demo track has been released in full. As I understand it, the song was created during Britney‘s Femme Fatale era and was produced by Fraser T Smith, who produced the bonus track Scary that appeared on the Japanese version of FF. Click the video above to hear this demo version of Unbroken in full and see what you think. Personally, I love it. I think it would’ve fit very nicely on Femme Fatale. Please enjoy.
Driving In Your Car
Last September we saw video of Twin Shadow performing a cover of the Tori Amos song Silent All These Years and today we get to see a new video of the group covering another of my all time favorite songs for their Under the CVRS project. This time around, Twin Shadow put their spin on The Smiths‘s classic song There Is A Light That Never Goes Out. I was inspired to share this song with you, A.) because it’s an interesting take on the song and B.) because I’m very excited that I’ll get to dance to the original version of this song at a Part Time Punks danceparty in Echo Park tonight that will feature nothing but music from The Smiths and Morrissey. I hope you will enjoy this cover version of There Is A Light as much as I do. And if in LA and free tonight, come out to the Echoplex tonight to dance with me all night long :D
