Back in April, when Kelly Clarkson brought her Stronger Tour here to LA, we saw video of Kelly performing a kickass cover of the Britney Spears song ‘Til The World Ends. And just when you thought that Kelly covering Britney couldn’t get any better, she goes and outdoes herself. Last night, at her concert stop in Las Vegas, NV, Kelly performed another Britney Spears cover … this time, she took on the Britney classic Everytime. As you can hear for yourselves, Kelly managed to sing the HELL out of the song, putting her own spin on Britney‘s melancholy ballad. As you can tell from Kelly‘s intro to the song, she is a big fan of our dear Britney … which means she will likely sing more Britney songs in the future. Bless her precious and very talented heart <3
Fresh on the heels of her newest video for Murda Bizness (featuring T.I., we saw it here) Australian rapper Iggy Azalea made a pretty big announcement. She is currently learning to walk the runway for New York Fashion Week (which is huge!), but she stressed on Twitter last night that she is not confirmed. Still, exciting!
Managers Betta Have His Money
You know how it goes by now– another day, another celebrity lawsuit. This time, Drake‘s management is up at bat and the story is not an unfamiliar one. Somebody did something important, but didn’t sign a contract, so they didn’t get paid. In this case, it’s talent scout Jas Prince who’s claiming he introduced Drake‘s music to Lil Wayne and had a verbal agreement with Drake‘s managers, once things started popping off for the now-super rapper. He, allegedly, played a key role in Drake‘s huge success but has not been paid– according to the agreement– in over a year. It sounds like it’s time for a lawsuit! Deets inside.
And Apparently, KILLED
As many of you know I recently became somewhat obsessed (in a completely healthy way) with Emeli Sandé. The Scottish songstress won my heart with her smash single Next To Me, and I’ve been listening to all of her many other amazing songs, as recommended by some of our faithful PITNBrs, who also go pretty hard for Emeli. Which is why I was thuh-rilled (sound it ouuut) to hear that she opened the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Somehow, that news just made perfect sense to me. Her voice is all things victory and glory and human spirit and strength so yeah. Danny Boyle is the mastermind behind the Olympic Games ceremony– which I’m watching as I type and yes– he’s a mastermind (we also knew this from his films, Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting). He was so right to involve Emeli in this extravaganza of UK pride. Deets and pics inside!
Filmed at the Kiki Institute of Mental Instability
Scissor Sisters have just released a music video for their fabulous new single Let’s Have a Kiki. Now, as a public service to the uninitiated who may have no idea what, exactly, a “Kiki” is the Sisters are using their new music video as an instructional video that explains A.) what a Kiki is and B.) how to have one. Take notes, y’all. Learn it, Live It, Love it.
I Read 'J. Cole' For The Articles
J. Cole…. is…. hot. I hate to objectify him; it is so wrong because he’s so talented! And it goes against everything I believe in as a feminist. Either that, or it supports everything I believe as a feminist. I’ll work that out later. J. Cole has a new song called The Cure (because, apparently, that’s what he is), and he is spitting hot fire all over that awesome beat from Jay-Z and Kanye‘s Watch The Throne (Lift Off!) Unfortunately, there’s no video so we’ll just have to imagine what
J.Cole would look like if he took his shirt off more often the exciting accompanying visuals would like. Still, a pretty sweet listening session going down.

Featuring Flo Rida
Jennifer Lopez may have lost her job as judge on American Idol to Mariah Carey (either of her own volition or not) but that doesn’t mean that La Diva Latina is slowing down. On the contrary, I believe that J. Lo is going to use the newfound surge in popularity that she got from Idol and will refocus her energy on other parts of her career. In recent years, J. Lo has let her music career kind of fall by the wayside … but with the attention she’s won from her gig as Idol judge, she has been able to revive her music career and make a serious push for supremacy again. As you may know, J. Lo has FINALLY embarked on her first-ever world concert tour and it seems like she’s been releasing new singles every other day … like this new track with Flo Rida. To be honest, Goin’ On is no Waiting For Tonight but it’s a fairly decent track. While the song itself sounds a bit generic (sorry, J. Lo), I do love the vibrant music video. Hot Pink and Neon Yellow? HOT HOT HOT. I’m not gonna lie, when this song comes on in the club, I’m apt to bust a move or two … tho, I may need to find myself a fierce hot pink cape first. HMMM. I dig this new video, do you?
My Children Would Never Hold Me Against My Will!
I was beginning to think we’d never hear from the woman herself, but Katherine Jackson, the matriarch of The Jackson family has finally broken her silence about the recent, troubling goings-on in her family. Yesterday we saw video surveillance footage of a dispute between Janet Jackson and her niece Paris, and we also learned that Katherine Jackson‘s guardianship over her grandchildren (Paris, Prince and Blanket) was revoked. The children are now in the care of their cousin, TJ Jackson. Katherine Jackson says her piece about all this, inside.
