It's All Going Down In Brooklyn
We all knew that Beyoncé‘s Mrs. Carter Show world tour was going to be a huge deal, but I’m not sure we were prepared for all of the madness surrounding these concerts. We’ve had nipple costume drama, postponed performances that then fueled pregnancy rumors, and now we’ve got the return of Lady Gaga! Many of you may remember that Gaga suffered a severe hip injury earlier this year, and was forced to cancel the remainder of her Born This Way Ball world tour. Now we’re hearing reports that her first performance following her recovery will be during Beyoncé‘s NYC show at the Barclays Center. Jay-Z and Kanye West are expected to hit the stage, which means this show is gonna be completely insane! Click inside for more!
"No, not yet."
Remember back in April when that supposed promo photo of Madonna that read 2014 came out? At the time, there was a lot of speculation that the image was meant to inform us of her intent to release a new album next year. Well, it’s possible that she may release a new album in 2014 but according to the singer herself, she hasn’t even started work on any new music. Boo. Maddy was interviewed at the Billboard Music Awards and she was asked about rumors of a new album … click below to hear the sad news from her Madgesty herself. More »

Last night I made my way out to The Troubadour to see the amazing Holy Ghost! live in concert. I first saw the band live way back in 2011 and I was really impressed with that performance. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the band’s release of their sophomore album, which is due out this Fall, but a concert performance was good enough to sate my anticipation. The Troubadour is probably my favorite venue here in LA so, yeah, I had a great time last night. More »

Additionally, Get a Listen of Her Collab with The Dream & 2 Chainz
For the past few days the world has been really occupied with rumors that Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z are pregnant with their second child. Yesterday we learned that Jay, allegedly, denied the rumor in an email that was sent to a NYC radio station but, officially, B-Jay aren’t commenting one way or the other on the matter. Now that everyone is looking Beyoncé‘s way, it seems the PERFECT time for some new music to mysteriously leak its way to the Internets. Earlier this year, we got a taste of Bey‘s new song Grown Woman as it is featured in a new Pepsi commercial. Today we get to hear the song in full because it leaked online mere hours ago. Additionally, The Dream has officially released the audio of his new song titled Turnt and it features both Beyoncé and 2 Chainz on vocals. Click below to hear BOTH songs in full. Happy Bey Day!

Paulina Rubio Is Also Close To Signing A Deal
Back in January we heard rumors about Britney Spears quitting her role as a judge on Fox’s The X Factor to focus on new music. Now that we know Britney is headed to Las Vegas, and working on her new album (and that L.A. Reid officially left the show) we know for a fact that The X Factor is looking for some new judges. Word is, they’re very close to signing Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio to the show. Click inside to learn more!

'OVO x ROCNATION'
Jay-Z may or may not be gearing up for another baby with his wife Beyoncé, but like Queen Bey, he’s continuing to put in that work. We recently heard his new song Open Letter, and he jumped on the Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe remix with Kendrick Lamar. Oh, and he also prdocued the entire, amazing soundtrack for The Great Gatsby (which included his own song) so it’s safe to say he’s keeping very, very busy. Now we have news about an upcoming collaboration with Drizzy Drake, as the two were recently hanging out in the studio together. They’ve collaborated before, so this could be a good thing, for sure.

Y'all Ain't Ready For The New Yeezy
We should all know by now that when Kanye West hits the stage we can pretty much expect the unexpected. However. I was still unprepared for his performances last night on Saturday Night Live. Yeezy performed New Slaves, which we heard yesterday after he debuted a video to the song in various locations across the world. And he also debuted a new track, Black Skinhead. I was just checking out the lyrics to Black Skinhead on DirectLyrics and I’m still trying to figure out exactly what he means by Black Skinhead… but maybe I’m trying too hard. What do y’all think of the new tracks? I loved his performances for both songs– visually it’s an experience, which is what Kanye is usually going for. Oh, and I was cracking the hell up while he tried to censor his own lyrics during his New Slaves performance– awesome!
Peep the videos for more! The Black Skinhead performance is inside.
"We don’t believe in defeat / that’s why we’re back for a threepeat"
Earlier this month we got our first listen of Jennifer Lopez‘s new single Live It Up, which features her BFF Pitbull on guest rap vocals and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Sigh. Jenny from the Block really tries to look cool in this video but most of the time I just keep thinking, Damn girl … stop trying so hard. The song is still pretty meh. for me but the video is OK, I guess. I imagine it will do well on video screens at danceclubs when this song, invariably, will be played for the next few months. Give it a look, see what you think. Does Jennifer Lopez still have what it takes deliver with these kinds of music videos anymore? You be the judge.
She got Smurfed!
Yesterday we got our first listen of Britney Spears‘s new single Ooh La La after it leaked to the Internets about a month before it was due for release. As a result, Britney posted a message on her official Twitter profile address the song’s leak — which you can read in full below. As with many song leaks, it’s almost impossible to tell if the early release of the song is intentional or not. According to our dear Britney, the leak of Ooh La La was not intentional. HMMM.
