A few weeks ago the audio of Britney Spears‘s new single Ooh La La leaked its way to the Internets well ahead of its scheduled release date of June 25. Today, still a few weeks away from the single release, we get our first look at the cover art for the single. Walmart will be among the retailers that will have Ooh La La for sale and they have updated their official website with the single cover art. Unfortunately, our dear Britney does not appear on the cover art but considering the single is meant for an animated film soundtrack, I guess that’s to be expected. Check out the cover art below.

"This is our house / This is our rules"
Yesterday we got our first look at the cover art for Miley Cyrus‘s new single We Can’t Stop and right now we get to hear the song IN FULL. The track was debuted on the radio show On Air with Ryan Seacrest here in LA and has since been made available for listening online … albeit with an annoying audio tag that reminds you every 5 seconds that the song is being played by Ryan Seacrest. As we learned yesterday, the track was produced by Mike WiLL Made-It and has been in the works for some time now. Click the embed above to hear Miley‘s new song, see what you think.

Plus, She Might Have Shared A Twerk-Tastic Photo From The Video
Miley Cyrus has made it clear that she’s wholly dedicated to her new album, and it looks like she’ll be winning some new fans along the way. I, personally, was not expecting to dig her sound on Snoop Lion‘s latest single Ashtrays and Heartbreak but I was actually into the song. I’m really curious to hear her new single We Can’t Stop, and Miley‘s piquing everyone’s curiosity with some new pictures she’s been sharing on Twitter. Click inside for more!
"Me and him got one of the craziest records ever made"
So … is the world ready for Gucci Manson? Cuz … it sounds like we are in for a very interesting treat from BFFs Gucci Mane and Marilyn Manson who have collaborated together on a new track. In a new interview out this week, Gucci Mane reveals that he and MM are super close friends and they have come up with “one of the craziest records ever made” called Fancy Bitch. Now, normally I wouldn’t put much stock in this seeming exaggeration but … knowing how these two guys work, I think I can believe that they have come up with something crazy. Click below to read more of Gucci‘s comments on his collab with Manson and check out a photo of the buys in the studio. More »
The TV Guide
For the first time in far too many weeks, I’m very ashamed to admit, I finally got my butt outside to go for a run. With the San Francisco Marathon looming in a couple of weeks (YIKES!) I realized that time was running out for me to remind my body that it needs to run for a very long distance for a very long time. OY. After my run, I rested up a bit before I met up with some friends at the Fonda Theater to see Chvrches live in concert. I’m a newer fan of the band but man, I am so glad I saw them live last night … they were really great. I snapped some photos and video of the show, check it out below. More »
So now that we can be FAIRLY certain that wine-drinking Beyoncé is not (yet) pregnant with her second child, we can go back to focusing on her NEW MUSIC instead. As you may recall, we learned yesterday (sorta) from Beyoncé herself that she won’t be releasing her new album until November (boo) but that doesn’t meant that we have to wait that long to hear some of the songs that will likely appear on that album (yay). Last night, during a concert stop in Antwerp, Belgium, Bey performed in full a new track titled Standing on the Sun. A portion of this song was previously featured in Beyoncé‘s commercial for H&M but last night’s performance was the first time the song was “released” in full. Check out the embed above to watch/hear the song in full. Thus far, Bey has added the new songs Standing on the Sun, Grown Woman (which has leaked in full studio version online) and Epic (from the soundtrack of the animated film of the same name, in which she stars as an animated character) and it’s very likely she will add more new songs to her setlist as the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour continues on its way. As for this new song, what do y’all think? Do we like?
But It Sounds Like Bey Don't Like You Asking
With the recent leak/release of Beyoncé‘s new song Grown Woman, folks have been wondering if the popstart might be getting close to releasing a new album. As you may know, Bey is currently on tour in Europe right now and she is scheduled to bring her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour stateside very soon … so it sounds like the perfect time to release a new album right? Well, reportedly according to Beyoncé herself we’re going to have a wait a bit longer for the release of her next album. When asked point blank by a fan when she will be releasing her new album, Bey icily responded “in November”. More »

"Tonight there's gonna be a whole lotta smoke in the air"
Snoop Lion, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg (real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus), has released a new music video for his haunting reggae single Ashtrays and Heartbreaks. Surprisingly, at least to me, Snoop enlisted the aid of Ms. Miley Cyrus to provide vocals on the track and appear in the video, which you can watch in full above. As you can hear, the song is a lament about friends/family who have tragically died so, OF COURSE Snoop would ask Miley to sing on the track. Yeah, I don’t understand either but these collabos do tend to get a lot of attention (case in point: this post) so … enjoy?
"You're beautiful, good Lord, you're f*ckin' beautiful'
Earlier this month we got our first look at the official music video for Mariah Carey‘s new single with crooner Miguel titled Beautiful. That video was censored so that the explicit cuss words were edited out of the song. Today, Mimi releases the semi-NSFW explicit version of the music video. The inclusion of the swear words is not the only thing different about this video, the whole thing is pretty different (no motorcycle, more classic car in the barn). Personally, I like this music video best … explicit language notwithstanding. Check it out, see what you think.
No Previews, No Leaks
A couple of weeks ago we learned that Kanye West‘s new album has been titled Yeezus when the album art made its way to the Internets. After hearing his new songs New Slaves and Black Skinhead, I’m sure folks have been clamoring for any information about when they can place pre orders for the album. Welp, it looks like that will not be possible. Kanye‘s creative collaborator Jean Touitou shared a flyer on his official Twitter profile that reveals that there will be NO pre orders for the album before its release date of June 18. Sorry ’bout it. More »
