Watch: ‘Glee’ Puts Its Spin On Paula Abdul’s ‘Cold Hearted’

But Where's the Sexy?
An Homage to Paula Abdul's Homage to 'All That Jazz'

Tomorrow night Glee will pay homage to Paula Abdul‘s 1989 music video Cold Hearted which is, in turn, a tribute to the famed Bob Fosse film All That Jazz. Those of you who remember Paula‘s video may recall how racy it was at the time for MTV (if memory serves, the video was relegated to airing after dark so as no to “offend” sensitive eyes in the daytime) but was nowhere as racy as the scene is is based on in All That Jazz. This version of Cold Hearted, done Glee style, isn’t racy at all. In fact, it’s kinda boring … even tho actress Naya Rivera is a phenomenal performer. Meh. I’ve long since given up on Glee … but I got mad love for Paula Abdul and her song Cold Hearted so I present the video above for your entertainment. If you so desire, you can click below and watch the original Cold Hearted music video by Paula Abdul and Take Off with Us performance from All That Jazz. More »

Watch: Justin Timberlake Performs ‘Mirrors’ On ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

Plus, Hear 'SexyBack' in Barbershop Quartet Form
"I'm lookin' right at the other half of me"

Justin Timberlake returned to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night to perform on night two of his weeklong residency on the show. On Monday night, JT performed his new song Pusher Love Girl … last night he performed his new song Mirrors, which you can watch in full above. Mirrors has become my fave song on his new album The 20/20 Experience (which is streaming in full on iTunes now) so I’m glad it was performed last night. Additionally, JT‘s monster hit song SexyBack was performed as well … by a Barbershop Quartet of performers that included Timberlake and host Jimmy Fallon. Click below to watch that fun performance in full. More »

First Look: Taylor Swift Releases A Music Video For Her New Single ’22′

Shot in Instagram, It Appears
"A Perfect Night to Dress Up Like Hipsters"

Taylor Swift appears to have put the drama behind her and has decided to get back to the business of releasing new music and new music videos. Earlier today, Taylor debuted the music video for her new single 22 on Good Morning America … which you can watch in full above. As you can see the video appears to have been shot entirely using Instagram-like filters … which is apropos, I think, considering how hipster-driven the clip appears to be (fake glasses and all). For me, this isn’t one of Taylor‘s better singles but I’m certain Swift fans will be satisfied. What do y’all think? Do you like?

Music Video: Kelly Rowland Releases A Music Video For ‘Kisses Down Low’

"I love it when we misbehave"
"Boy You Turn Me On, Got Me Feeling Hot"

Back in January we got our first listen of Kelly Rowland‘s new single Kisses Down Low, a song that Shannon has labeled hella naughty, and today we get to see the music video for the track. Considering the subject matter of the song’s lyrics, you might expect the music video to be X rated … but not so. In the clip, Kelly looks hella cute as she sings about her love of … um, Kisses Down Low. Check out the very SFW music video above … but you may need to turn the music down a bit because the lyrics to the song are kinda NSFW. Enjoy!

First Listen: Azealia Banks Releases Her New Single ‘Yung Rapunxel’

"Who’s Cooler Than This Witch?"

Last week we got our first look at the cover art for Azealia Banks‘s new single Yung Rapunxel, which is the first from her upcoming debut album Broke With Expensive Taste (due out later this year … sometime … I think). Today we get to hear the track in full. Azealia released the single on her official Twitter profile earlier today giving us a taste of what’s to come when she finally releases her first full-length album. Miss Banks has been generating a lot of buzz with the singles and mixtapes she’s been releasing herself over the past couple of years (and has garnered attention for the Internet antics and social media feuds she’s gotten mixed up in) but this is our first taste of what her serious music career may sound like.

Justin Bieber Cancels His Concert In Portugal

Maybe He's Making Time For A Nap?
Justin Bieber leaves private residence at 4am after performance at 02 Arena

As we all know, it ain’t easy growing up Bieber. In the past week or so, Justin Bieber has been exhibiting the early signs of a possible teen pop star meltdown. Either that, or he just needs a nap. He recently got into an almost physical altercation with a paparazzo, he got in big trouble for starting his London concert late, and he ended up in the hospital after collapsing onstage during another concert. Now we’re learning that he’s cancelled one of his two upcoming performances in Portugal. Click inside to learn more.

MTV Crowns Kendrick Lamar The ‘Hottest MC In The Game’

Well Done, MTV. Well Done.

So, every year MTV puts together a roundtable of knowledgable folks in Hip-Hop and they sit around debating about the hottest MCs in the game, until a top 10 list is compiled. And every year, everybody (well, everyone who cares… including me) rages over the final top ten list. But this year, most folks are surprisingly satisfied with the number one pick for the Hottest MC In The Game, and so am I. Kendrick Lamar, who just recently dropped the visuals to Poetic Justice (one of my favorite songs off his debut album good kid, m.A.A.d. city) was crowned number one and I think that makes perfect sense. Click inside to see who else made the Top 10!

Frank Ocean Sued Over Production Credits On His Song ‘Lost’

Micah Otano Seeks An Undisclosed Amount For Co-Producing The Track
Paris Fashion Week - Valentino - Outside

Look. Any Frank Ocean news is good news because any Frank Ocean news reminds me that I haven’t listened to Channel Orange in 24 hours, and thus inspires me to get back on that. So. All that being said (and Pyramids currently playing in my ear), there is some bummer news for Frank today. The Grammy Award-winning artist is being sued for some missing production credits on his debut album. Click inside to learn more.
