Rihanna Releases The Artwork For Her New Single ‘Diamonds’

The Song Will Debut on Wednesday

Last week we learned from Rihanna herself that she will be releasing new music this week. Today we get our first look at the artwork for Ri Ri‘s new single Diamonds which will debut worldwide this Wednesday morning. Diamonds will be the first single from Rihanna‘s forthcoming 7th album and, as I understand it, the track is a very upbeat song. As you can see from the single art below, Rihanna appears to be very addicted to diamonds … and she seems to be telling us that we may become addicted to her new song Diamonds. Click below to see the full size image of the Diamonds single artwork and read the full text of the just issued press release announcement. More »

Taylor Swift, Nina Dobrev And Other Celebrities Attend Day Two Of The iHeartRadio Music Festival

Taylor Looks Kind Of Amazing

Apparently everybody and their mama kickin’ is at the iHeartRadio Festival. Yesterday we got to see pics of Ryan Lochte & Lil Wayne, along with a bunch of other celebs on the red carpet at the event. Then Rihanna (before doing her set at the festival) announced the forthcoming release of her seventh album, Diamonds. And now we get to see Taylor Swift– who is looking crazy good, IMO– along with Nina Dobrev, Christina Milian, The Jonas Brothers, Enrique Iglesias, and a few other familiar faces on the red carpet for day two. Honestly, there are like five pictures of Taylor Swift because I could not get over how amazing she looked in the face! While I didn’t love, love, love her dress, I thought her hair & make-up was absolutely stunning. That red lipstick is still doin’ it for me. Peep the gallery for more! Nina Dobrev‘s dress was actually pretty damn hot.

Hangin’ With The Hooligans, Night 2

The TV Guide

On Friday night I got to see one of my fave LA bands — Sweet and Tender Hooligans — perform a concert made up entirely of songs by The Smiths. Last night, I got to see the band perform a concert made up entirely (well, mostly) of songs by Morrissey. Yes, I’m a Hooligans fan. On both occasions, I had to haul my cookies all the way down to Long Beach, CA but I did so happily … and had a great time each night. Click below to see some photos from last night’s show. More »

Fiona Apple Speaks Out About Her Jail Time Following Her Arrest For Drug Possession

She Had Some Ish To Get Off Her Chest

A few days ago we all heard that Fiona Apple had been arrested and charged with possession of marijuana as she attempted to make her way through the notorious town of Sierra Blanca, Texas with .01 pounds of weed and .01 pounds of hashish. Fiona then posted a $10,000 bond and was released, just in time to perform at her next concert in Houston. While on stage, Fiona had some really interesting things to say about her arrest and her experience in jail. Click inside for more.

Hangin’ With The Hooligans

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a mostly fun day. After all the hoopla of the iPhone 5 launch and the Space Shuttle Endeavor invasion of LA, I made my way down to Manhattan Beach for a hang session with my very good friend Josh Z. We met up for pizza and beers before we went to the movies together (we saw Dredd 3D, review forthcoming). After our hang sesh, I made my way even farther South to Long Beach to see one of my fave LA bands perform. Sweet & Tender Hooligans are performing two nights at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach … last night was all music from The Smiths. Tonight, they play all music from Morrissey. Needless to say, I’ll be there again tonight … but click below to see some fun photos from last night’s Smiths night. More »

Rihanna Officially Announces Her Next Single, ‘Diamonds’

The Single Drops Next Week!
Rihanna Hearts Diamonds

Yes! I’m sooo excited to be reporting about Rihanna in a completely musical (as in drama/ex-boyfriend-free) capacity!!! The pop superstar– who’s new look I’m still loving all up and down– has officially announced her forthcoming single, titled Diamonds. Diamonds will appear on Rihanna‘s seventh studio album and will premiere next week!!! She must really be putting in that work because earlier this month she released that Cockiness single (with A$AP Rocky), which is off her last album Talk That Talk. Nuts. And I’m kind of more excited than I thought I would be, lol. Earlier today we saw pics of Rihanna at the iHeartRadio Music Festival and now we have the video of her there, announcing the new song. She describes it as ‘happy and hippie’ (or ‘hip-py’?) and she sounds quite pleased with the finished product. Also, she apparently ‘only knows how to be number one.’ Which makes sense. Checkie out!

UPDATE: There was some confusion and, since first posting this, we’ve learned that Diamonds is Rihanna‘s new single, not the new album. We still don’t know the name of the album but the cover art for the first single has been released.

Watch: Missy Elliot Talks About An All-Ladies Rap Concert And The Nicki Minaj/Lil’ Kim Beef

'There's Enough Room For Everybody!'
Missy Has High Hopes For The Game

It really looks like Missy Elliot is coming back into a music world that desperately needs her. This is good news, to say the least! Earlier this week we got to hear her two new singles 9th Inning and Triple Threat (currently on repeat), and many of us are celebrating the return of the great one. Recently she stopped by MTV‘s RapFix Live with Sway to chat about women in hip-hop and the awesomeness that it would be if we could all just get along, lol. It’s so good to hear an artist come out and, hopefully, encourage some of the newer artists (like Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks) to squash whatever beefs are out there and just make good music together. Peep the video for more and celebrate the return of Miss E.!

Watch: Calvin Harris And Florence Welch Release A Video For ‘Sweet Nothing’

Still Living On Such Sweet Nothing
Sweet Nothing, The Mini-Movie

Earlier this month we got to hear this new single from Calvin Harris, featuring Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. Today I am so psyched that we get to check out the visuals to this amazing song. Although I only recently heard Sweet Nothing, PITNBR M mentioned that the song has been on the radio for a little while now. The video is heavy and intense and really, the perfect accompaniment to the track. I love! Watch the video above and click inside for the track listing from Calvin Harris‘s upcoming album.
