'Symphony In H'
So … Kanye West just this week released his new album Yeezus just a couple of days after Jay-Z announced to the world that he is releasing a new album titled Magna Carta Holy Grail early next month … which means that Ye and Jay have got the lock on the biggest rap music releases this year … right? Not necessarily. A minute and a half long snippet of a new song by Eminem titled Symphony in H has made its way to the Internets today. Click below to get your first listen of this portion of the new track and find out when we’ll be able to hear the song in full. More »
Madonna as Marlene
Last month we learned that the EPIX cable channel will be broadcasting the world wide television debut of Madonna‘s hugely successful MDNA World Tour this month which took the world by storm last year. Since that announcement was made, we’ve seen some preview promo vids for the broadcast but last night the biggest promo event for the broadcast took place at the Paris Theater in NYC, NY. Madonna herself made an in-person appearance at the NY premiere last night of her MDNA World Tour EPIX broadcast and participated in a Q&A with fans afterward. As you can see in the photos below, Madonna got all gussied up in a tuxedo outfit that was made iconicly famous by Hollywood legend Marlene Dietrich … and she looked damn good. Click below to see the photos, read some deets about the event and watch an 18-minute video from the Q&A that Maddy participated in last night. More »
Ageless, Eternal, Cher
Last week we learned that Cher was scheduled to perform her new single Woman’s World on the season finale of the competitive reality singing series The Voice and last night … she delivered. Wearing a wig that looked like a fauxhawk wrapped in a mullet and a pair of Justin Bieber‘s favorite dropped crotch saggy pants (with straps), Cher the ever-living belted out her new single for a new generation of listeners. Altho this was Cher‘s first television performance in many years, we must remember that the woman has now performed in front of TV viewers in the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, the 2000s and now the 2010s … and she looks and “sounds” amazing. It’s unclear just how much of Cher‘s live performance was actually live but there is no mistaking … we hear her computer-processed voice in this performance. Click the embed above to get a fresh dose of Cher and see what you think. Were you impressed … or …?
Among the wacky things that Amanda Bynes has made public is her alleged desire to become a singer/rapper … and if you can believe it, it appears that someone is taking her seriously enough to consider working on a record with her. According to Chinga Chang Records CEO Dan Herman, he and Wyclef Jean (failed Haitian presidential candidate and former member of The Fugees) have decided to meet with Amanda to talk music. Thus far there has been no official confirmation of this but Herman seems HAPPY to talk as if the deal is already done and an album is on the way. Click below to read what he has to say about the possible release of an Amanda Bynes album coming our way. More »

What's Good for the Goose ...
John Mayer is back and he’s got a new song that he wants to share with the world. Mayer‘s new single is titled Paper Doll and the just released lyric video for the song features that crazy lady Joanna Rohrback who rose to viral fame a few weeks ago as the Prancercise lady. While that, in and of itself, is kinda blogworthy and interesting, it’s the lyrics to the song that are getting all of the attention today. Taylor Swift famously wrote a song about John Mayer once upon a time … and it’s possible that this new song is a song about her. HMMM.

#MC723 in Full Effect
Yesterday we learned of the great possibility that WalMart inadvertently revealed the name of Mariah Carey‘s new album before she got the chance to make the revelation herself. In a message that Mimi posted on both Twitter and Facebook, it appears that she has confirmed what WalMart revealed … that the title of her new album, due out on July 23, will be titled The Art of Letting Go. Additionally, it looks like Mimi is gonna hit us with a NEW music video for her song #Beautiful, which she recorded with Miguel … because she went and dropped a few photos on us that show her rockin’ a SICK bikini that she suggests will be featured in a new video with Miguel. Click below to see the photos and read her messages to get caught up on MC‘s latest. More »
Better Seen and Not Heard
Over the weekend we got our first look at grainy, shaky and not at all clear video footage of the American Psycho parody promo video that Kanye West whipped up to promote the release of his new album Yeezus (which leaked to the Interwebs last Friday but is officially available now). As you may recall, that grainy video gave us a feel for the American Psycho parody which, IMHO, looked kinda cool. The promo vid has been officially released by Kanye and in the embed above, you can watch and hear the clip in full … but it’s not a pretty sight. The parody is inventive, I think, but the execution is horrendous. Scott Disick, who stars in the clip as Christian Bale‘s American Psycho character Patrick Bateman, is so irritatingly annoying that it makes the clip difficult to stomach. That voice? Kill me. He may look like the character but he SO does not embody the spirit of the character. That voice? OMG. Check out the clip, see what you think. Can you watch it the whole way thru without wanting to puncture your own eardrums?
The First Single from her new album 'Matangi'
M.I.A. is back with a riotous new single titled Bring the Noize, her first from her upcoming new album Matangi. M.I.A. teased the single release on her official Twitter account last week and today she lays it on us. The song doesn’t sound all that different from the kind of music she’s released in the past … which may or may not be a good thing. Click below to hear Bring the Noize in full and get a taste of what’s to come when M.I.A. unleashes her new album later this year. More »
Earlier this month, Mariah Carey announced that she will be releasing her new album on July 23. At the time, no other information about the album was revealed … no tracklist, no album title … nothing. WalMart updated their online store and has listed Mariah‘s new album for pre-order … and it appears that they have inadvertently announced the album title early. It’s likely Mariah was holding off on announcing the album title (and revealing the cover art) so that she could further hype the album’s release … but in regards to the title reveal, it seems that WalMart may have stole her thunder. Click below to see the information that WalMart has revealed about Mimi‘s album and check out the as-yet unconfirmed album title. More »
"People will be surprised with this album. It's really different"
Our dear Britney Spears debuted officially her new single Ooh La La on the On Air with Ryan Seacrest morning show on KIIS FM here in LA just moments ago and while that in and of itself is great news, she also spoke a bit about her upcoming 8th album … and revealed WHEN IT WILL BE RELEASED! The embed above features the final mastered audio of Ooh La La, the lead single from The Smurfs 2 soundtrack due out next month, which doesn’t sound all that different from the leaked “demo” version that hit the Internets in May. Click the embed above to give the song a listen … then click below to learn more about Britney‘s new album from our dear Brit Brit herself. More »
