NEW MUSIC NEWS!!!
So, a year ago last January Kylie Minogue parted ways with her longtime manager and told the world that she was planning to take a break from making music. In February, all of that changed when Kylie signed to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation management company and started working on a new music sound with Pharrell. In May, she dropped a fun little single called Skirt but it was clear that she was still not ready to release a full new album. Now, all these months later, Kylie appears ready to deliver the 12th album of her career. On December 31, Kylie told us to be ready for new music titled Into The Blue and today we get to see a photo of Kylie on the set of the music video for her new single. We don’t know when we’ll get to hear Kylie‘s new single or album but I have a feeling we’ll be hearing something soon … soon … SOON! More »
... Due out NEXT WEEK!
It’s no big news that Rihanna likes to collaborate with other artists on music singles (she’s worked with Britney Spears and with Eminem to great success) but it’s pretty big/exciting news, I think, that she will feature on Shakira‘s new single Can’t Remember to Forget You which will be released next week on January 14. News of this single release was made on Twitter and altho it hasn’t technically been officially confirmed, Rihanna did retweet the news via her official account … which completely confirms and validates the news for me :D Click below to check out the presumed cover art for this Shakira & Rihanna collab.

"The Glue That Ties This Record Together Is Honesty"
In the fifth part of her Self-Titled documentary-ish video feature Beyoncé talks about the recording process and themes of honesty in her latest album Beyoncé. We see footage of her working on one of my favorite songs from the album (Rocket) with Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and Pharrell. Bey also discusses her need to open up and to speak to the generation that grew up with her music.
She has yet to comment on the #Beyshade situation currently taking over the interwebs.
Back in November we first heard the rumor that Outkast is planning to reunite this year at the 2014 installment of the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival and today we hear more “confirmation” talk about the rumored reunion. Organized Noize member/producer named Rico Wade casually let slip that Outkast will be performing at Coachella this year in an interview he gave to Stereogum. I tend to believe this latest bit of “confirmation” talk because Wade wasn’t even really talking about Outkast when he let the info slip out, he was talking about his younger cousin Future.

The Way the Song was Meant to Be
A few weeks ago, Lady Gaga guest performed her new single Do What U Want on an episode of The Voice and brought Christina Aguilera out to duet with her. The live performance was such a sensation in the days after the performance that Gaga decided to release a studio recording of her collaboration with Xtina. As you may know, the song originally features R. Kelly as Gaga‘s duet partner but, IMHO, the song sounds much better with Xtina on vocals. Click the video embed above to hear the studio version of Lady Gaga and Xtina dueting on the track and then head over to iTunes to download the song, if you so desire. I’m not a big fan of either Gaga or Xtina but I really do love this track featuring the both of them … don’t you?
Keepin' It Dirty In 2014
If your New Year’s Eve celebration looked anything like Ke$ha‘s new music video, then you’re probably still hung over and not even reading this. LMAO… ummm… I think I might be a Ke$ha fan or something. I’m kinda digging this Dirty Love track, and the video is so fun and ridiculous and NSFW, it feels very appropriate for the new year. Ke$ha put on her director’s hat for this one, and it looks like she had a total blast. Peep the video for more!
P.S. I wholeheartedly disagree with her thoughts on champagne though.

The TV Guide
Yesterday was another amazingly fun day here in Tokyo that left me with a full and very happy heart and a much emptier wallet. Adriana and I decided to head out in search of the fun toy shopping that Tokyo is famous for so we made our way to Nakano Broadway, which is a mall that is PACKED with various toy stores (among other stores). We walked in and were met with a wall of Transformers that damn near made me weep with joy. The best part of it all, the prices were extremely reasonable … like, shockingly reasonable. It was all I could do to keep from spending ALL OF THE MONEY IN THE WORLD on everything I saw but, thankfully, I was able to make pretty good decisions on what to buy and lug home with me :) The rest of the day was spent bumming around the Koenji neighborhood where we enjoyed a nice sushi meal that was delivered to us by robots. Last night, we made our way to the bar inside the Park Hyatt hotel to have a drink where the movie Lost In Translation was filmed. All in all, it was a pretty fab day! More »
Our dear Britney Spears kicked off her 2-year concert residency in Las Vegas Saturday night and by pretty much all indications, she put on a show that managed to impress and garner rave reviews. Celebs like Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus were in attendance on opening night (tho, Miley was so bizzy getting freaky with one of Brit‘s female backup dancers that she prolly didn’t pay much attention to the show) and couldn’t wait to share their love for Britney and her show on social media. I am still a few weeks away from seeing the show myself but it heartens me greatly to hear that so many people are loving the show!! More »
All The Way Turnt Up
There’s nothin’ like a little Britney Spears live to get you in the mood! Britney‘s Las Vegas concert Britney: Piece Of Me officially started last night and it looks like everyone and their mama (and their backup dancers) are having a blast. Miley Cyrus attended the concert along with a host of other celebrities (including Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Kellan Lutz, Mario Lopez, Adam Lambert, Emile Hirsch, David Copperfield, and DJ Pauly D), but– wouldn’t ya know it– Miley was the most turnt up of them all, LOL. Peep the video above to see her make-out sesh with one of Britney‘s backup dancers and click inside for more!
