"Boom! Gone. We Move On."
We are still about 2 weeks away from the release of Selena Gomez‘s new album Stars Dance but today we get our first listen of a track from the album that leaked its way online. The song is titled Love Will Remember and it is getting a lot of attention due to its very interesting intro. The song starts out with a voicemail that sounds a lot like it was made by Justin Bieber. The song is a break-up song and as you can hear below, Selena puts her ex on blast for all the loving promises he made to her … then broke. The song has been getting yanked offline all over the place so I suggest you take a listen as soon as you can before it gets yanked offline again. More »
Jay Finally Makes Great Use of His Twitter Profile
Jay-Z has been on Twitter for some time now but before yesterday, he didn’t really use his account very much. After Jay launched his official Twitter account back in November of 2008, his tweets to the world have been few and far between.

But yesterday, totally out of the blue, Jay-Z started tweeting and responding to fan questions. Naturally, someone asked him what his favorite Britney Spears song is … and he responded. In fact, he responding to a lot of questions with pretty humorous responses. Click below to read some of the things that Jay-Z shared on Twitter yesterday afternoon. More »
Don't Even Bother Watching Right Now. You're Not Ready!
Let me just start out by saying that I am totally biased. At this point, no matter what Kanye West does, I just love it all up and down. And when I don’t love it, I forget it exists and try to erase from my memory forever. But no, I really, really effing love this video for Black Skinhead! Agh! Look at that screen shot! We learned a little while back that Black Skinhead would be the first official single off the Yeezus album and I was hoping we’d get a video soon… not that I was in any way prepared for this madness. I honestly have no real words for this stygian, video game-inspired, strangely sexual work of visual art. You just have to watch.
Oh, and I do believe Kanye‘s abs really look like this. Peter Rosenberg from Hot 97 totally said when he saw Yeezy at the Yeezus preview, he looked like he’d been beefing up so yeah. That’s probably what I meant by ‘strangely sexual.’ Probably, definitely.

And … just like that … my little adventure in Scandinavia has come to a close. I am currently writing this blog post back home on US soil having just checked into my hotel for the next couple of nights. I am DEAD TIRED but I want to get some photos up so I can properly say thank you and goodbye to Stockholm, Sweden. Kirsten and I made the most of our last day in Stockholm, as you can see below. We met up with some friends in the early afternoon for a boat ride to an island for lunch. Afterward, I made my way to the Grona Lund amusement park to ride some rollercoasters … and RANDOMLY see a full Ke$ha concert right in the middle of the park. Last night, I decided NOT to sleep at all and made my way to a massive ship called Patricia so I could dance until dawn … which, in Stockholm right now, means until 3AM. We made our way to the airport at 4AM and except for a few stumbling blocks, managed to make it to NYC successfully. Whew! More »

The Sisters With Voices Are Cookin' Up A Comeback!
You know, it’s hard dealing with your favorite Throwback groups or artists… especially when they jump on that comeback train. Remember SWV? Of course you do. They were the 90s girl group we all would have been in, if we could sing, and if we had that bomb weave. With hits like Weak, Downtown, Rain, and (one of my personal faves) Release Some Tension, Taj, Coko & LeLee made life happy. So I don’t know if I should be excited… or concerned about their possible comeback via a reality show on WE tv. But it’s happening! Click inside to learn more.
Melodic Chaotic Is The New Jam
Look. I can’t help it, okay. I like Willow Smith! Now I don’t what it is, or what it was (probably that song she released last year, I Am Me) but I kinda rocks with her. She’s so adorable, with her crazy hair and refusal to wear a bra of any sort. Sigh. I love it! And it’s sooo mean of me, but I almost didn’t post this new video of hers because her brother Jaden Smith is in it and he has a completely different effect on me, lol… grrr. Let’s not go there. Willow with her beautiful voice has teamed up with producer MVSIC to form the duo Melodic Chaotic and I’m loving their new song #SUMMERFLING. The title sounds a little grown for a 12 year-old, but the whole vibe is very innocent and sweet. Peep the video for more! Anybody else digging this sound?
Ever since last week’s Throwback Thursday, and then her awesome performance at the BET Awards, I’ve had Ciara on the brain. The singer hit up 1 OAK Nightclub at The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas to celebrate the Fourth of July and her 5th album release party. She showed off her dancer legs in this sweet little dress, and looked genuinely psyched for the release of Ciara. Also, I need her make-up artist. Stat. Peep the gallery for more!
