Along with AC/DC, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and more
Last month, in one of the first interviews she gave after a number of her unfinished demo songs were leaked online, Madonna teased that she might be performing at the 2015 Grammy Awards. Last night, ahead of the official announcement by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, Madonna announced officially that she will be performing at the Grammy Awards next month. Following her announcement on social media, NARAS announced that AC/DC, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Eric Church are among the first performers confirmed — along with Madonna — for the Grammys this year.

Released January 12, 1999
16 years ago today, the world was blessed with the debut album …Baby One More Time by our dear Britney Spears and the pop music landscape was changed forever. Almost immediately, Britney stormed the charts and our hearts with an album that contained 5 hit singles that burned their way into our hearts and minds and firmly established herself as the new princess of pop. Since that fateful day, Britney has released follow-up albums that have enjoyed success on their own (her sophomore album Oops! I Did It Again still holds the record for the most albums sold in its first week of release by any female artist) but it all goes back 16 years ago to the release of Baby. Click below to join me in celebrating the sweet 16th birthday of Britney‘s debut album. More »
"This is my heartbeat song and I'm gonna play it"
A few days ago, Kelly Clarkson employed the aid of her baby daughter River Rose to help her tease the release of her new single Heartbeat Song. Today, Kelly has FINALLY unleashed the song upon the world for our listening pleasure … and quite unsurprisingly, the song is a smash pop hit. Kelly has an uncanny ability to write catchy, upbeat songs that you want to bop along to — not just dance, but bop bop bop. Kelly Clarkson is back! Thank the gods! Have a listen, have a little bop and enjoy.

"A rock n roll icon, a guitar god"
Back in November we learned officially that Katy Perry will be headlining the halftime show during Super Bowl XLIX next month and today we learn from Katy herself that she will be getting by with a little help from one of her friends. Katy announced on NBC last night that “rock n roll icon” and “guitar god” Lenny Kravitz will be performing the halftime show with her on Super Bowl Sunday. Katy didn’t go into detail about what the two will be doing on stage but I have a feeling they’ll come up with a performance that will be fun and entertaining. At least, I hope they will.
You've heard this song before
Marilyn Manson continues to promote the forthcoming release of his new album The Pale Emperor with the release of a song titled Cupid Carries A Gun. This song, tho, isn’t necessarily new as it is used as the theme song for the WGN series Salem (you may recall we got our first listen of the song as the Salem theme song back in April of last year). This is the first time we get to hear the song in full as it will appear on MM‘s new album so click the embed above and check it out. The Pale Emperor is out on January 20.
"Hey River, what are you listening to?"
Kelly Clarkson has been teasing the forthcoming release of her new single on Twitter for the past week or so and even though her new single won’t feature a guest performance by Dr. Dre (THAT I KNOW OF), we do know that it will be titled Heartbeat Song. Just a few minutes ago, Kelly posted a video on her official Twitter profile that gives us our first listen of Heartbeat Song. As you can see below, Kelly is using her adorable daughter River Rose to help promote the release of the song … which means you MUST have a look/listen immediately. More »
I can't let it go
Last month we got a tease of Lea Michele performing the Frozen song Let It Go on Glee and we even got to hear audio of her full performance. Today, because I can’t seem to let Let It Go go, we get to see Lea‘s performance of the song as it will appear in the 2-hour final season premiere of Glee tomorrow night. The performance, as presented on the show, isn’t anything all that special nor is Lea‘s rendition but it is the biggest song of the year and, well, I still like the song … for the most part. The final season of Glee will premiere on Fox tomorrow night so make sure to tune in if you simply cannot get enough of this song :)
Following in Britney Spears's footsteps
In the wake of Britney Spears‘s stunning success in Las Vegas, NV with her concert residency Britney: Piece of Me at the Axis Theater inside Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino, pop stars are clamoring for a chance to duplicate her success with concert residency shows of their own. E! News is reporting that Mariah Carey, who recently completed a very successful week-long Xmas concert residency in NYC, NY last month, has signed on or is close to signing on for a Las Vegas concert residency of her own. At this point, this report is merely a rumor as no real details have been provided but it seems safe to say that Mimi won’t be making Britney money, at least not to start IF this residency report turns out to be true. HMMM. More »

Doing Shia LaBeouf things
Sia has released the music video for her new single Elastic Heart and as you can see in the embed above, the video stars Maddie Ziegler (the young dancer who stars in Sia‘s music video for Chandelier) and actor/artiste Shia LaBeouf. Maddie and Shia engage in a dance battle of sorts within the confines of a massive cage. It’s art, I take it. And it’s absolutely the music video I would expect from a collaborative effort between Sia and Shia. Please enjoy.
"You're the cure"
Ellie Goulding has released a new song titled Love Me Like You Do which will be featured on the original motion picture soundtrack for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. As you can hear above, Love Me is a very anthemic and catchy song … and is a good sign that even tho the movie may not live up to expectations, the film’s soundtrack may end up being the best thing about the Fifty Shades movie release. Have a listen of Ellie‘s new song and see if it puts you in the mood for a little Fifty Shades of Grey action.
