Scheduled for release November 11
Earlier this week we got our first look at the cover art for Lady Gaga‘s new album ARTPOP and today we learn which songs will be featured on the album. Gaga unveiled the tracklisting for ARTPOP on Twitter last night with a little help from some of her loyal fans. Gaga commissioned a group of fans who have been camping out in front of her recording studio “for a month” to paint the song titles on a wall, which was then photographed and released on Twitter. Additionally, Gaga is releasing today a lyric video for her new song Aura which features scenes and imagery from the sequel film Machete Kills (the film she stars in which opens in theaters this Friday). Click below to see the tracklist for ARTPOP then watch the lyric video for Aura, one of the songs featured on the album. More »

Last night I was invited to attend an even at Create nightclub in Hollywood to watch Paris Hilton make her DJing debut in LA as she celebrated the release of her new single Good Time. I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to a red carpet nightclub event like this but, to be honest, my curiosity got the better of me and I decided to head out and watch Paris DJ in person. The venue was all decked out for the event and much care was taken to ensure that guests had a great time. Altho Paris was a bit tardy getting on stage to do her thing, she did show up and DJed her little heart out. Click below to see some photos from last night’s event and watch a couple videos that feature NEW music from Paris Hilton. More »
Jimmy Fallon gets in on the fun, too
Miley Cyrus is still hanging out in NYC this week after her appearance on Saturday Night Live last weekend and last night she paid a visit to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for a little performance. Miley teamed up with the Late Night house band The Roots for a pretty spectacular a capella performance of her #1 single We Can’t Stop. As you can see in the video embedded above, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon also got in on the fun. Personally, this has to be my favorite rendition of the song yet. What do you think? Check out the video above and let me know below.
"It ain't over 'til I say it's over, enough when I say enough"
Earlier today we got to see interview video of Rick Rubin explaining the genesis of Eminem‘s single Berzerk but right now we get to see the just-released music video for Em‘s even newer single Survival, the second from his upcoming new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The song is pretty dope and Em brings it with the lyrics. It’s great to have the guy back with new music. Click the embed above to watch the video for Survival. Please enjoy.

And it sounds as terrible as you might imagine
So … you knew it had to happen … when we first found out that Canadian singers Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger got themselves engaged to be married, we KNEW it would only be a matter of time before they made music together. In December of last year, Avril recorded a cover of the Nickelback song How You Remind Me and that was bad enough … but today, we get to hear Avril and Chad dueting on a song titled Let Me Go. The song sounds way too Nickelback for my taste but maybe there’s someone out there who will like it more than I do. Have a listen above, see what you think.
Thoughts? Please share them below.

Last night I made my way to the Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA to see Fiona Apple in concert with guitarist Blake Mills on their Anything We Want Tour and, of course, I had the best time. I’ve never seen a show at the Disney Concert Hall so I was excited just to be inside the venue. I try to see Fiona every chance I get so, it was just a great night of live music. Fiona and Blake put on a very interesting show that was entertaining, a bit whacky and lots of fun. It was great to see Fiona looking and sounding so well. I’m really glad I managed to nab a ticket for the show. More »
"I think it's unlike any current Hip Hop songs"
Early last month we got our first look at the music video for Eminem‘s new single Berzerk and today we get to hear from producer Rick Rubin about how the song came to be. As you can hear in the song itself, Berzerk goes for that old skool Hip Hop sound in an attempt to differentiate itself from the music that is out now. Rubin explains in the video embedded above that that was intentional. This short interview offers a really interesting insight into the inspiration for the song. I understand this video is the first of a series of behind the scenes videos to come. Stay tuned.

'Whooooa, let's party ...
First we got a tease of Paris Hilton‘s new music video for her new single Good Time, then we got to hear the song in full … today, we get to see the music video in FULL! The preview that we got to see last week gave us a PRETTY GOOD idea of how the whole video would look so there aren’t any real surprises here. If you can believe it, I think the video enhances the song a little … even the really bad rap portion by Lil’ Wayne. If you’ve ever wanted to attend one of Paris Hilton‘s pool parties, then here is your chance. Check out the video above and see what you think.

Last week we learned the sad news that the release of Paris Hilton‘s new single Good Time was delayed a week but today we learn the good news that the song managed to leak its way online a day early so … yay? Click the embed above to give this masterpiece of music a listen and see what you think. Personally, I think the song sounds a bit thin and weak and the lyrics aren’t really that impressive but the bits that Paris sings are LIGHT YEARS better than the bits that Lil’ Wayne raps. OY! Has the song of 2013 finally blessed us with its presence. Take a listen and you be the judge.
