Watch: Nicki Minaj Seems Bored By Her Own Performance Of ‘Freedom’ At The American Music Awards

Nicki Sings For 'Freedom'

So, Nicki Minaj hit the stage last night to perform her new jam Freedom. We first heard the song a little while back and I was kinda feeling it, which is why I was excited to see how she would perform it on stage. Now, truthfully, the song is a more reflective piece… but I still was hoping one of the BIGGEST stars alive would have come up with something better than standing around singing, then walking over to a bench, then sitting on the bench singing, then standing up to finish singing. Like, she barely moved, lol! Okay, maybe I’m being hard on her. She moves a little. I dunno what was going on. There’s also this winter wonderland theme popping off; it’s weird. Peep the video for more! Are you feeling Nicki‘s performance? The choir was great, but choirs are always great! She coulda came harder, IMO!

Sidenote: PITNBR JCZ, I just saw your comment and yes, I did watch the first segment of Nicki‘s new reality thing and yes, it was horrifying, disturbing, and disappointing for ALL of the reasons you specified.

Watch: Psy Teams Up With MC Hammer For An AWESOME ‘Gangnam Style’ Mash-Up With ’2 Legit 2 Quit’ At The American Music Awards

Hammer Time is The ONLY Acceptable Way to Enjoy 'Gangnam Style'
"2 Legit 2 Gangnam Style"

Last week we saw video of Madonna on stage with Korean pop sensation Psy performing his massive worldwide hit Gangnam Style and at the time, I thought it was the only acceptable way to enjoy the somewhat annoying song. Today, I stand corrected. Last night, during the American Music Awards, Psy performed Gangnam Style to close the show … but midway thru his performance he brought MC Hammer on stage to mash-up his song with Hammer‘s 2 Legit 2 Quit. Folks, as much as I don’t love the Gangnam Style song, this mash-up performance is AMAZING! Utterly and Truly. Check out the video above to see for yourselves. I know we gave Justin Bieber major grief for his silly baggy pants yesterday but I’m not kidding when I say it’s really very cool to see MC Hammer rock his Hammer Pants again … and rock them right! Enjoy!!

Lady Gaga Shares Another Teaser For Her Terry Richardson-Directed Video

'Cake' Still Looks Hella Intense

The other day we saw some disturbing images that I’ve yet to get out of my mind. Lady Gaga was rapping (that was disturbing in and of itself) and also “dancing” in lingerie… while in a bathtub… I dunno. The memory is fuzzy, but no less disturbing. Anyhoo, Mama Monster was attempting to give us the cray-est sneak peek of her new video for Cake, which is being directed by Terry Richardson. Luckily, we’re getting another sneak peek that is, like, a million times less disturbing. It’s just a photo so– for those of you who saw the video clip– don’t be scurred to click inside!

PITNB Video Exclusive: Broken Anchor Debuts A Brilliant Cover Of ‘Flagpole Sitta’

VERY Easy On The Eyes And Ears
'I'm Not Sick But I'm Not Well...'

Something tells me that you woke up today feeling some 90s nostalgia. In fact, it’s Monday, so I know you did. Well, y’all know I always have a cure for the Mondays… and the good news about up-and-coming pop/rock group Broken Anchor is that you can listen to them any day of the week. Today just happens to be the exclusive PITNB debut of their official video (featuring a completely awesome cameo from Rachael Leigh Cook) for their cover of the unforgettable 1997 Harvey Danger hit, Flagpole Sitta. I’ve seriously been listening to this song since the day it was sent over to me, wishing like hell that I could sing… and that I had an acoustic guitar. And that it was 1997 or 1998 (either or). But luckily for us, Harley-Leonard (one half of Broken Anchor) can sing, and his voice is, like, rugged ethereal on this track. It’s glorious. Peep the video above and click inside to learn more about Broken Anchor! Y’all know I love finding and sharing sweet new music and good covers; Broken Anchor definitely fits the bill. How much do you love this cover?! Anybody else crying yet? No? Just me? That’s cool.

First Listen: Fiona Apple Releases A New Song For The ‘This Is 40′ Soundtrack

Fiona On 'This Is 40'

Judd Apatow has some serious heavy-hitters contributing to the soundtrack for his next movie This Is 40. Norah Jones, Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Ryan Adams, Wilco, Jon Brion, and Fiona Apple will all be featured, many with brand new music. Fiona Apple‘s Dull Tool is one of the new jams and it reminds me a little of Hot Knife, one of my favorite songs from her most recent album The Idler Wheel… Peep the song above! It’s Fiona… so the lyrics are, well, Fion-esque: You don’t kiss when you kiss/you don’t f*ck when you f*ck. Damn. I love this girl!

First Listen: Rihanna Teams Up With Kanye West For The ‘Diamonds’ Remix

A Drama-Free Collaboration
RiRi And Yeezy Remix This Business

Rihanna‘s seventh studio album Unapologetic is days away from dropping, and we’ve been hearing lots of new music. Yesterday we got to hear a track I was really, really digging– Numb, which featured Eminem. PITNBRS Sam and Matthew both noted that Rihanna‘s production team is amazing, and they play a huge part in the good music that she does put out there. It was definitely the production of the song that I was feeling (and Eminem‘s verse); but Rihanna‘s voice also sounds good on the track.  The other day I caught the tail end of this new remix, and I was excited to see the full version online. Kanye West (who was actually sampled on Numb) opens the song with a lengthy, fresh verse and Diamonds gets a pretty sweet remix. Peep the video above for more! Yeezy sounds kinda cool (I’m listening to the song again) and I love his shouts-out to Angelina and Brad. LMAO… this guy!

First Listen: ‘Scream & Shout’ By Britney Spears & will.i.am Leaks To The Internets

"Bring The Action"
"You're Gonna Turn This Sh*t UP!"

Yesterday we learned that Britney Spears and will.i.am are planning to release their new single Scream & Shout on Monday. Late last night, the full song leaked to the Interwebs courtesy of the blog Love B. Scott. I’m not sure how long the embed will stay online so take a listen while you can. I’ve listened to the song a few times already and I really like it. YES, I realize it’s a will.i.am track and Britney is only guesting on it … but her performance on the track is really damn fun. She takes the chorus and there’s even a cameo of her famous It’s Britney, Bitch line. Brilliant. While I would LOVE for Britney to release a new single all her own, I am quite satisfied with this little treat of a song. Britney makes will.i.am listenable, for that reason alone she deserves praise. What do y’all think of this track? Does it make you want to “turn this sh*t up”?

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Cameos In A New R.E.M. Music Video Directed By James Franco

Because, Why Not?
Starring Lindsay Lohan

After 31 years together as a band, R.E.M. broke up in September of 2011 … but that doesn’t mean that they are out of the music spotlight entirely just yet. Earlier this year, the band released a definitive greatest hits album titled Collapse Into Now. R.E.M. has just released a music video for their single Blue and wouldn’t you know it, Lindsay Lohan makes a cameo! James Franco directed the video and, well, TA DA! Check out the clip and see what you think. It may be the best thing that Lindsay has ever appeared in, to be honest.

Watch: Lady Gaga Releases A NSFW Teaser For ‘Cake,’ Directed By Terry Richardson

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Someone Stop This Madness

Seriously. WHAT am I looking at? And WHAT am I listening to? Is that Lady Gaga… rapping?! And… um… dancing in a Terry Richardson-directed video? Um. Okay. I need a moment y’all.

(moment)

So, apparently Lady Gaga debuted the song at the Mugler fashion show in Paris, and since then there’s been some confusion about whether or not the track is an actual single off her upcoming album ARTPOP. There are so many different versions of the song, but the one I can tolerate (and admittedly, kinda do like) is the trap version, which you can listen to here. The chopped and screwed style makes her voice unrecognizable, and that brings me great comfort. Anyway, peep the teaser for the video above. I honestly don’t know what to say, or think, or believe in right now.
