First Look: Justin Bieber Releases A Music Video For ‘All Around The World,’ Featuring Ludacris

'All Around The World People Want To Be Loved'
Justin And The Beliebers Take You All Around The World

With all of the drama surrounding Justin Bieber recently, I kinda forgot that he makes music! So this was a nice reminder. Bieber just dropped the visuals to his song All Around The World, and I know Beliebers everywhere are having the best Friday ever. An ode of sorts to his fans, Bieber takes us (you guessed it) all around the world with this video, and we also get a welcome appearance from Ludacris (although I hope Biebs doesn’t think I’m giving him his Hip-Hop street cred back any time soon, lol). Peep the video for more! Oh, and… believe.

How To Destroy Angels Makes Their Live Performance Debut

The TV Guide

Trent Reznor‘s new band, the collective called How to Destroy Angels, made their live performance debut at the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA last night in front of a sold out house of family, friends and fans. Altho HTDA will make their official live debut at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival this weekend, last night’s show in Pomona was meant to be a more intimate introduction to the world. I was thrilled to be in attendance last night and I have to say, I was completely blown away by the show. I tried my best not to have any expectations from Trent Reznor and his fellow Angels Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan because I was confident they’d put on an amazing performance. Even still, I was unprepared for the sheer visual and sonic genius that was on display last night. Click below to see some photos from the show which, in all honesty, do not even come close to doing the band justice. More »

‘Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead’ Rockets Up The UK Music Chart In The Wake Of Margaret Thatcher’s Death

48 Hours After her Death, the Song Hits #10

Yesterday we learned the news that Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first and thus far only female Prime Minister, passed away at the age of 87 … and while the news was sad for some, it was quite the opposite for many others. There are a lot of people who dislike Thatcher so much that news of her death became cause for great celebration in the United Kingdom. As a result, a campaign got underway immediately to get the song Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead from The Wizard of Oz into the #1 position on the British music charts. 48 hours after Thatcher‘s death, the song has already made it up into the #10 position. Wow. More »

Watch: Demi Lovato Releases A Music Video For ‘Heart Attack’

It's HERE!
"You make me glow, but I cover up"

Back in February we got our first listen of Demi Lovato‘s new single Heart Attack, the first from her forthcoming new album Demi. Last week, we watched Demi perform the song live on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Today, at long last, we get to check out the official music video for the track. As you can see above, the video is pretty simple … pretty straight forward. Demi looks amazing as she belts out the lyrics with her man band behind her. I’ve grown to really love this song the more I hear it … I’m hoping the rest of the album will be great as well. Demi hits stores on May 14. Check out the video and see what you think.
