HELLA NSFWish TBQH
Last week we learned that Miley Cyrus would be premiering the music video for her new ballad Wrecking Ball today and right now, we get to check out the video in full. The clip starts out in a stark way with Miley sporting a single tear streaming down her face. Then, the video brings in the expected wrecking ball for Miley to ride … both clothed (barely) and unclothed (completely). The song is beautiful but the video, directed by Terry Richardson, is … a lot. I would say that the clip is pretty NSFW because even when Miley is wearing “clothes”, the scenes are pretty risqué. When she’s completely nekkid, yeah, it’s a bit much for folks in public areas to watch I think. Hell, I even got a bit embarrassed and I watched the video in the privacy of my own home office. Yeah, Miley really goes for it in this video. With caution, check out the video in the embed above, I’m dying to hear what you think. Comment below, please.
"I live for your Applause ..."
Last week we learned that Lady Gaga would be appearing on Good Morning America today and earlier this morning she delivered a fun, Wizard of Oz-style performance of her new single Applause that I must admit I enjoyed greatly. Gaga, all dressed up like Dorothy, performed a portion of Somewhere Over the Rainbow as a lead in to her single Applause and took the entire GMA audience straight to Oz. As you can imagine, there were various costume changes, a cleverly designed Yellow Brick Road set and actual wig snatching. This has to be my favorite of Gaga‘s live performances as of late. Check out the video in the embed above and see what you think. I like this performance, do you?
Okay, I'm Starting To Fall In Lurve With This Girl
This is so awkward. You guys are now forced to watch my descent into Ariana Grande fan-dom. I don’t know how this girl got me, but… she got me! We just checked out her sweet new video for Baby I, and now every time I see her name I’m all like What? What’d Ariana do? It’s weird. So. Ariana was a guest on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon a few nights ago, and she and Jimmy teamed up to cover a few of our favorite tracks. Jay Z‘s 99 Problems, Cypress Hill‘s Insane In the Brain, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ Thrift Shop all get the Broadway treatment– and Ariana sounds amazing! What is it with her? I’m just gonna have to accept that I like her and move on with my life. She’s dope. Whatever. Peep the video for more!
Sunday February 2, 2014
Earlier this year, Beyoncé brought down the HOUSE with her halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVII and next year, Bruno Mars will be taking over as the halftime entertainment. Pepsi and the NFL announce today that Bruno has been named as the headline halftime performer at Super Bowl XLVIII next February. Honestly, I wouldn’t immediately think that Bruno Mars is big enough to carry the Super Bowl halftime show on his own but … there’s no denying, he is a crazy talented performer. HMMM. Click below to read the full text of the press release announcement and see what you think of Bruno Mars the next Super Bowl halftime superstar. More »

Guest Appearance By Kendrick Lamar!
Yesterday we learned that Eminem would be premiering his new video for Berzerk on ESPN. During the Notre Dame V. Michigan halftime show, Eminem showed up being his usual ridiculous self with the announcers, and the world got its first look at the video. I was so psyched to see both Rick Rubin and the boy Kendrick Lamar (who gets a shouts-out in the song’s lyrics) make appearances in the preview, and I can’t wait to see the rest of the visuals. Peep the video for more!
Ok, Really. Who Is This Chic?!
A few weeks ago I’d never heard of Ariana Grande. But then Justin Bieber went and kissed her on Instagram, and all hell broke loose so I had to find out who she was. It’s like they say– there’s no such thing as bad publicity. And when she performed outside of the MTV Video Music Awards I definitely recognized her name– and I was really digging her voice. The Victorious actress just released a new video for Baby I, and I am officially, kind of, a fan! She’s friggen adorable, and since I know she can actually sing live, I’m into it. I feel like a total teeny-bopper right now, but I can’t help it. Peep the video for more and check out lyrics to the song over at DirectLyrics!

Get Ready For Some New Shady
So, somehow I completely missed the release of Eminem‘s new single Berzerk and I’m just listening to the track right now. As someone who did not initially looove Eminem back in the day, I’m pleasantly surprised to be digging the hell out of this song! Eminem– and his beloved middle fingers– joined Instagram recently and he took to the social media site to share news about the single’s video, which I’m excited to see. The good news is we’ll all get a preview tonight… the bad news is we have to watch a football game. Booooo! LMAO! No, it’s fine, I guess. Click inside for more!

"I'm about to explode"
Coldplay has just released the lyric video for their new song Atlas, the first from the forthcoming soundtrack to the film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. As you can hear in the video embedded above, the song is a slower jam … one that, I assume, is meant to have an epic feel about it. Personally, I’m not the biggest Coldplay fan so the song doesn’t really do much for me. But, then again, I can’t remember the last time I was particularly impressed with the soundtrack to any film in recent memory. As much as I loved The Hunger Games, I couldn’t even tell you the name of 2 songs on the film’s soundtrack. I suspect the same will happy this time around when Catching Fire is released but … I’m certain there are others out there who love this kind of thing. Are you one of them? What do you think of Atlas by Coldplay?
