Yesterday was my first full day home from my amazing vacation overseas and, to be honest, all I wanted to do was … nothing. I sent my mountain of laundry to the cleaners (hopefully it’ll all return intact) and then rested as much as possible. Because my dear Ollie will be out of town this weekend, we decided to hang out together last night to get the weekend party started early. She graciously invited me to a rehearsal session for the upcoming reunion of The Oohlas and I happily accepted! More »

'The 20/20 Experience' Part 2 is out on September 20
A couple of days ago, Justin Timberlake teased us with a snippet of his new song Take Back The Night, the first single from his upcoming new album The 20/20 Experience Part 2. Today, he gives us our first listen of the song IN FULL. Clocking in at over 6 mintues long, Take Back The Night is an upbeat jam that is reminiscent of Michael Jackson Off The Wall-era music. I dig this song a lot … it’s great to hear it in full. Check it out above, see what you think. As we learned back in May, The 20/20 Experience Part 2 will hit stores on September 30.
Marina Abramovic & Jeff Koons Are On Board
It’s been a fairly quiet year for Lady Gaga but that’s all about to change. Back in September she announced that her new album ARTPOP would be an interactive experience, with an app and everything. Since then we’ve seen Jay-Z do something similar with Magna Carta Holy Grail, and that’s not the only thing these two have in common. Remember yesterday when we saw footage of Jay-Z performing at Pace Gallery with renowned performance artist Marina Abramović? Well, in the announcement posted on her website last night, Gaga revealed that she too has worked with Abramović, and ARTPOP will also include exhibits featuring her collaborations with Jeff Koons, Inez & Vinoodh (who I love) and Robert Wilson. Art pop indeed! Click inside for more!

Throwback Thursday Gets Gloriously NSFW
When I saw that it was Lil’ Kim‘s birthday today I got inexplicably happy. Well, if you know me, I guess I was explicably happy. Because I effing love Lil’ Kim! And now that I know we’re both Cancers, my whole world makes sense! A lot of strange things have happened with Kim over the years and it sucks that she doesn’t get, like, daily recognition for what she did in rap music. I lit’rally cannot hear another woman rap without hearing a little bit (or a lot… ahem) of Kim‘s voice, flow, and style. I miss her! Which is why 1.) I’m psyched that she just released a new song today, and 2.) I’m celebrating her birthday with some of her greatest Throwback hits of all time. Hide ya wife, hide ya kids, and don’t tell my Mom what we’re listening to LOL! No, seriously. Don’t tell my Mom. Click inside for more!
“She actually called me"
Last month we learned that Amanda Bynes is planning to team up with Waka Flocka Flame for a supposed rap album and today we learn that she has also reached out to another person to help her make her rap album dreams come true. Nick Cannon has revealed to Life & Style magazine that Amanda called him up and asked for help … and, amazingly, he has agreed to do what he can for her. Now, just because Nick is saying this now doesn’t exactly mean that he will duet with her on a rap track but … if he’s serious about wanting to help her, we might seriously have to consider the fact that this Amanda Bynes rap project might actually come into existence. LOL. More »

"Baby, come with me ..."
It’s here … it’s finally here … after a LOT of teasing, our dear Britney Spears has FINALLY released the music video for her new single Ooh La La which will appear on the soundtrack for The Smurfs 2. As you can see in the embed above, it’s a family affair for Britney as her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James also feature in the video … along with her niece Maddie Briann. The clip is cute enough for the song, I think … but it’s a pretty standard movie music video. Britney looks fantastic, her kids look adorable … and The Smurfs 2 looks unwatchable. Even still, Smurfs 2 opens in theaters on July 31. Please enjoy!
