Watch: Solange Debuts A Video For ‘Losing You’

Meet The Sapeurs
'Am I Losing You For Good?'

So. I definitely have a new jam! A couple of days ago Solange Knowles released a new video for Losing You and I can safely say that I’ve never heard a song like this. Losing You is, obviously, reminiscent of lots of music; it’s 80s, it’s pop, it’s R&B and still… it sounds so new and refreshing and awesome! I’m seriously in my happy place and I fully agree with Brad Stern at MuuMuseLosing You is the definition of ‘repeat-friendly.’ The video (directed by Melina Matsoukas) was shot in South Africa, where Solange is joined by a troupe of men/performers/fashion icons/etiquette specialists known as the Sapeurs. Beyoncé is obviously awesome, but Solange is really my kinda girl.

PITNBR Seth Leeper, you were right! I do love this song, and it is ‘like an acoustic 80s in a tin can’ :)

Garbage Rocks The Hollywood Palladium

The TV Guide

Last night Darion, Jeremy and I made our way to the Hollywood Palladium to see Garbage LIVE in concert and as you might expect, the band put on one Hell of a show. Last night’s show was the 6th proper Garbage concert (not including two shorter performances) that Darion and I have seen just this year alone and we are nowhere near satisfied ;) But, alas, it looks like last night was our last Garbage concert of 2012. The Hollywood Palladium was sold out and packed to the rafters and the band really fed off the energy. Shirley Manson was in fine form and the band was as solid as ever. Click below to see some of the photos I took last night. More »

Morrissey Makes It Clear, The Smiths Are NEVER EVER Reuniting Again

"[N]ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever ..."

Yesterday, a rumor started going around that suggested that Morrissey and Johnny Marr had FINALLY agreed to reunite The Smiths for a series of live performances scheduled for next year that got a whole bunch of people excited that it might actually happen. I, for one, was not only NOT excited, I was absolutely certain that the report would turn out to be false. Even tho the initial report cited “credible sources” that insisted “It’s a done deal. Dates are booked. Glastonbury is one of four dates, presumably the Saturday on the Pyramid stage“, I knew — KNEW — that it was not true. Today we hear from Morrissey‘s press rep that the rumor is not true … in fact, the statement issued by Moz‘s rep is SO emphatic in the negative (ie. that The Smiths are NOT getting back together) that it’s almost comical. Click below to read the statement and learn, once and for all, the sad truth that a Smiths reunion just will never, ever, ever, ever, ever happen. More »

'This Christmas' Is Coming Your Way

Welp, it looks like this coming Xmas is going to be a lot brighter (possibly) and a lot cheesier (definitely) because today we learn that former co-stars and apparent current BFFs Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta have teamed up to record a new holiday album titled This Christmas. According to the press release issued today, John and Olivia decided to celebrate the “season of giving” by releasing an album that would raise money for their respective charities — The Jett Travolta Foundation (created in honor of John‘s late son) and The Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre. Not only will we get an album full of songs sung by John and Olivia but they are joined on the album by guest performers like Barbra Streisand, Kenny G, Tony Bennett, James Taylor and more! Click below to see the album art for This Christmas, read the full text of the press release announcement and see the tracklisting for this year’s MUST OWN Xmas album. More »

Christina Aguilera Fought Her Record Label For The Right To Gain Weight [UPDATE: Apparently, She Didn't]

"I got tired of being a skinny white girl" Is NOT What Christina Said At All!

Recently Christina Aguilera debuted her new music video for Your Body and I couldn’t help but notice her body. It was… amazing. And when she was spotted out and about in Beverly Hills I, once again, couldn’t help but notice the amazingness that was her body, lol. Not everyone’s a fan, but I think she looks great and I was pleased to hear that she recently spoke out about no longer wanting to be passed off by her label as a ‘skinny, blue-eyed white girl.’ Click inside to learn more about what Xtina had to say in an interview with Billboard magazine.

Watch: Justin Bieber Pukes On Stage During A Concert (And, Yes, It Is Gross)

This Is Swag

Justin Bieber, who just kicked off his Believe Tour, made a concert stop in Glendale, AZ on Saturday night and altho he was feeling a bit under the weather, he decided he was well enough to go on stage and perform. Unfortunately for The Biebs (and anyone close enough to get a really good look at him as he performed on stage), it turns out that JB wasn’t actually well enough to perform because midway thru one of his songs, he actually PUKED right there on stage. Naturally, it was all caught on video. The preview photo to the left is a photo of Justin that he posted online after the puking incident went down, this is the caption “Great show. Getting better for tomorrow’s show !!!! Love u” IF YOU DARE, you can click below and watch the actual video footage of JB blowing chunks on stage this weekend. Yes, the video is gross but the 12 year old in me just can’t stop watching … and laughing. I know, I’m ashamed of myself but please, disappoint YOURSELF and check out the (NSFW?) video below. More »

Here Are Some Celebrities Who Were Not Involved In Any Of The Fights At Last Night’s BET Hip-Hop Awards

And Some Who Were...

This is awkward. I love Rap. I love rappers. And yet. When those two things are celebrated in one space, at one time… ish may or may not go down. Now the truth is, we’ve had plenty of BET Award shows that didn’t involve violence, but last night’s taping of the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards absolutely did. Young Jeezy (who I adore) apparently got into it backstage with Rick Ross; but when they decided to take it outside, someone from Ricky‘s camp allegedly started shooting (although some reports say no shots were fired). Anyway, some time later (after they went back to taping) Gunplay, another member of Rick Ross‘s Maybach Music Group, got jumped (allegedly) by a whole 50 Cent G-Unit crew. But then I heard 50 Cent and Diddy got into a beef backstage… and blah blah blah. The drama just went on and, since nobody actually got hurt, it’s honestly just embarrassing, lol. You can read more about the ridiculousness here. Peep the gallery to check out some of the celebs (violent and non-violent) who were in attendance. At least 2Chainz and his daughter (who is crazy cute) were okay.

Watch: Christina Aguilera Releases A Music Video For ‘Your Body’

You'll Never Believe What Xtina Wants To Do To Your Body
Xtina Kills

After she released a couple of teaser clips (HERE and HERE), Christina Aguilera has finally released her full music video for her new single Your Body. In the radio edit version of the song, Xtina sings about how she wants to “love your body”. In the explicit, album version Xtina sings about how she wants to “f*ck your body”. In this music video, she does something entirely different to the bodies of her male co-stars. I have to admit, the storyline in this video is very unexpected for me … but I think I like it. Check it out, see what you think.
