Thus far there have been two graphics making the rounds that were presumed to be the cover artwork for the single … today we learn that they are not. Shakira posted the cover art for her new single with Rihanna on her official Twitter profile earlier today … click below and see for yourselves. More »

Back in November we first heard that Outkast is planning to reunite at the upcoming Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this spring in Indio, CA but until now we did NOT have official official confirmation that the reunion would actually take place. In December, André 3000 and Big Boi “reunited” in Atlanta, GA, sparking talk that the actual Outkast reunion was gonnna happen … then earlier this month, a third party “confirmed” the reunion rumor. Late last night, the organizers of Coachella released the official line-up for this year’s music festival and CONFIRMED OFFICIALLY AT LAST that the reunited Outkast will headline the first night of the festival. Muse and Arcade Fire will headline the subsequent nights. Click below to see the full line-up of bands confirmed to appear on the Coachella stage this spring. More »
Birthday Lurve for Kimmy
Yesterday we saw video of Dennis Rodman awkwardly freaking out during a CNN interview that aired LIVE on TV while he was in North Korea on a peaceful mission of goodwill sportsman ship. Today, we get to see a video that is even more disturbing than the last. Click the embed above to hear Dennis Rodman sing Happy Birthday to You to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as the arena full of players and spectators alike clap along. Yes, it’s as weird as it sounds. Watch and see for yourselves.
Just last month Drake shared a bit of an unreleased Aaliyah song on Instagram that made it seem like he was still intent on moving forward with the production and release of the much-talked about (and not well-received) posthumous Aaliyah album. But according to producer Noah 40 Shebib (who was working with Drake on the project), he has stopped working on the album and says that the project is dunzo for good. Click below to read what Shebib has to say about the end of this Drake/Aaliyah album and rejoice … it really sounds like the album that pretty much NO ONE wanted to come out won’t be coming out.

During his concert stop in Greensboro, NC, Jay Z noticed a young fan in the crowd holding up a sign that read Can I Rap For You? Jay‘s answer to the young fan was yes so he brought the 12-year old up on stage and let him do his thing in front of the sold out crowd. You can tell that the little dude was nervous as Hell when Jay handed him the mic but when he started rapping, he delivered a performance that not only impressed Jay Z but also the audience as well. Check out the video above of this talented young man performing a portion of Jay Z‘s song Clique and marvel at the kid in action. Jay better watch his back … with young whippersnappers like this coming up behind him, he may be out of a job soon :)
"Livin' in a Powerpuff world"
Last month we got our first look at the new version of the Powerpuff Girls animated series that will return in celebration of their 15th anniversary in CGI animation (as opposed to the original 2D animation that we know and love). Today we get to check out a just-released music video for the show titled I Wish I Was a Powerpuff Girl by former Beatles member Ringo Starr. As you may recall, we learned last month that Ringo will appear in this new Powerpuff Girls episode so it only makes sense that he would appear in the first music video for the ep. Click below and check out the video in full. More »
The TV Guide
Last night I met up with my friend Eileen for a fun dinner and movie hang, which is exactly what I was hoping to do since I hadn’t seen her for a couple of weeks. While I was on vacay in Japan for the holidays, I found out that the Cinefamily Theater (aka the Silent Movie Theater here in LA) was showing a rare concert film by The Cure and I was really bummed that I was missing it. The theater added a couple of showings for this week only and I knew that I had to see it before it was gone forever. Eileen, also a big fan of The Cure, was up for seeing the movie with me so we grabbed some food beforehand and then caught the movie afterward. More »

NEW MUSIC NEWS!!!
So, a year ago last January Kylie Minogue parted ways with her longtime manager and told the world that she was planning to take a break from making music. In February, all of that changed when Kylie signed to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation management company and started working on a new music sound with Pharrell. In May, she dropped a fun little single called Skirt but it was clear that she was still not ready to release a full new album. Now, all these months later, Kylie appears ready to deliver the 12th album of her career. On December 31, Kylie told us to be ready for new music titled Into The Blue and today we get to see a photo of Kylie on the set of the music video for her new single. We don’t know when we’ll get to hear Kylie‘s new single or album but I have a feeling we’ll be hearing something soon … soon … SOON! More »
... Due out NEXT WEEK!
It’s no big news that Rihanna likes to collaborate with other artists on music singles (she’s worked with Britney Spears and with Eminem to great success) but it’s pretty big/exciting news, I think, that she will feature on Shakira‘s new single Can’t Remember to Forget You which will be released next week on January 14. News of this single release was made on Twitter and altho it hasn’t technically been officially confirmed, Rihanna did retweet the news via her official account … which completely confirms and validates the news for me :D Click below to check out the presumed cover art for this Shakira & Rihanna collab.
