He's already written 10 or 11 songs!!!!
Great news, Frank Ocean fans … our boy has let it spill that he has already begun work on his next album … which he believes might turn out to be a kinda sorta concept album. In an new radio interview, Frank reveals that he has about 10 or 11 songs ready to go. It’s unclear if he’s written those songs or if he’s recorded those songs but … 10 or 11 songs is enough for an album already!

"I give you 'Downton Abbey' doing One Direction"
So … from time to time a parody/tribute/lip dub video comes along that truly stands out from the crowd and successfully grabs my attention so fully that I simply must share the goods with all y’all. Previously, we’ve seen lip dub videos of President Barack Obama performing various songs and those clips are pretty entertaining. Today, tho, I present to you a lip dub video of the cast of Downton Abbey performing the hit song That’s What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction. Now, whether or not you like the song, I think you’ll find that you will love this video. It’s really impressive how well the lyrics have been strung together with footage from all 3 seasons of Downton Abbey … and if you listen, you’ll hear clever changes to the lyrics that make the video even more awesome. Watch the video above and love … I’ve already watched it 5 times … and I plan to watch it a few more times in the next hour or so.
Yesterday we got to hear in full Mariah Carey‘s new song Almost Home, the first single from the soundtrack of the new film Oz the Great and Powerful. Today we get to check out a short preview of the forthcoming music video. As you can see below, the music video will feature footage from the film (as music videos from film soundtracks tend to do) but will also feature footage of Mimi doing her thang. It’s a short clip so it’s worth a look, I check … check it out. More »
The Trap Remix
A few weeks ago Britney Spears and will.i.am released a remix of their hit song Scream & Shout that featured a bunch of rappers posturing all over the song. Today we get to hear a newer remix of Scream & Shout that just features one rapper on the track. Pitbull busts a rhyme on Scream & Shout (Trap Remix) and he does a pretty decent job bringing fun new life to the song. Take a listen above and see what you think. I can’t say that I am the biggest Pitbull fan but I quite like this remix. Do you?

'A Love Surreal'
Y’all. I have never, ever been filled with so much regret. Last week we celebrated Throwback Thursday with 30 Throwback love songs that will never get old, and while I was forced to leave out many artists and songs, I am now totally kicking myself for forgetting about Bilal! OMG! His 2000 track Soul Sista definitely needed to be on that list, and there’s no way I’ll ever truly forgive myself for that omission. But. The good news is that Bilal has new music! His fourth album, A Love Surreal, drops on February 26, but NPR is streaming it for free right now! Go HERE to get your listen on, and click inside for a few Throwback Bilal songs! Yeah, I’m trying to redeem myself over here.

But The Cancellation Wasn't Exactly Her Fault
Y’all know how it goes. Another day, another celebrity lawsuit! Between her amazing fashion sensibilities, and that one time she hung out with The Game, Taylor Swift is having a pretty awesome 2013. However, the young pop star may be heading to court over a concert cancellation. Swifty was paid $2.5 million (in advance) for a concert that was later cancelled by the promoters. The promoters are now demanding that some of that money be returned, since Taylor never actually performed. Click inside to learn more!

Sources Say She's 'Seriously Considering' It
Not that this is news or anything, but Las Vegas is, apparently, the place to be. Britney Spears‘s Vegas residence was confirmed a few weeks ago, and now rumor has it that Adele might be headed to Vegas as well. It would– never in a million years– occur to me that Adele would be interested in doing Vegas, but according to this story, such a deal might have its benefits for the singer and new mom.
