I don't understand what is going on here
Morrissey has released a very odd music video for his new single Kiss Me A Lot and while I really love the song, I can’t say the same about the music video. Not only does the video feel amateurish but the inclusion of scantily-clad women for no seeming reason at all just seems … off … particularly in a Morrissey music video. The shots of Moz and his band “performing” the song are pretty bad but I really cannot get over the women. Why? I am a huge Morrissey fan and I rarely dislike anything he does but this video is a huge fail for me. I honestly don’t understand what is going on, can someone explain it to me?
It's a HIT!!
A couple of weeks ago, we got to hear a 1 minute sample of Hilary Duff‘s new single Sparks which was featured in a promo video for her new TV Land sitcom Younger. Today we get to hear Sparks in full. I really liked the bit of the song we heard before but now that I get to hear the song in full, I am in LOVE. This song is a bonafide hit … with the right promotion, it could be a very successful single for Hilary. It surely is a great harbinger of what we may hear when her new album is finally released. Click the embed above to hear Hil D‘s Sparks and fall in love. I love that she took a page from Britney Spears‘s playbook with the inclusion of those fun whistles in the song, don’t you?
"This is the new America / We are the new America"
A couple of weeks ago, Rihanna released a new single titled Bitch Better Have My Money and over the weekend, she released a follow-up song titled American Oxygen (back in January, she released FourFiveSeconds). The song was used in video promos to promote the March Madness college basketball finals on TV and was previewed live in concert by Rihanna at The March Madness Music Festival in Indianapolis, IN. And, of course, it was released in full on TIDAL. The song has made its debut online and you can hear it in full below … along with video of the March Madness promo commercial which features the song AND video of Rihanna‘s full performance at The March Madness Music Festival this weekend.

Buttttttttt, it's not all that great :/
Early last month, Carly Rae Jepsen released her new single I Really Like You from her forthcoming as-yet untitled new album. Today we get to see Carly Rae‘s just-released new song All That and, very sadly, it’s not all that. Carly has decided to forego her usual ultra-poppy, highly infectious sound for a ballad that she actually tries to sing. I mean, it’s cute that she wants to show off her range but the poor dear doesn’t really have any range. Even tho the music sounds really ’80s, it’s not enough for me to get into the song overall. BUT, don’t take my word for it. Click the embed above to hear Carly Rae Jepsen‘s new song All That and see what you think. Do you dig Carly Rae as a singer of serious ballad songs?

Sorry, not sorry. Tonight the second half of Mad Men‘s final season premieres and I am having a really hard time thinking about anything else.

The video for the song will be released next week
Madonna has chosen her ballad Ghosttown as the second single from her new album Rebel Heart and today we get to see the cover art for the track. Madonna posted the single cover art below on her official Facebook profile along with the news that the music video for Ghosttown will be released next week. Madonna got Empire star Terrence Howard to co-star with her in the video … so that should be something to see. As for the single cover art, well, it’s deffo not her best work, I must admit.

With no LA date ::cry::
Last summer, Morrissey was forced to cancel his North American tour due to illness that we found out back in October was cancer. Since then, he has managed to recuperate enough to start performing live shows in Europe. Today we learn that Moz has announced a string of new North American tour dates set to take place here this summer with Blondie and Amanda Palmer opening for him on select dates. It’s unclear how Moz is doing health-wise but since he appears back to “normal” touring shape, my guess is that he is doing A-OK these days. More »
Y&Y perform 'King' live
Last week I got to see the UK band Years and Years live in concert here in LA on their first US tour and just a couple of nights ago, they made their US television debut with a live performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. I’ve only been kinda sorta obsessed with Years and Years for a few weeks but that lurve intensified when I saw the band live in concert. Their performance on Late Night managed to capture some of the fun that they provide in concert … so I’m excited for you to see the video below. Watch Years and Years perform their song King on Late Night with Seth Meyers below and fall in love, won’t you? More »
The 'Jackie' Tour begins on May 3
Last month, Ciara (née Ciara Princess Harris) released a music video for her new single I Bet. Today, we learn that that single will be featured on her new album titled Jackie which will be released on May 4 … one day after she officially kicks off her Jackie Tour in Chicago, IL. I know I haven’t been paying too much attention to what Ciara has been doing lately musically (tho I have been enraptured by her babydaddy drama) but this surprise album has deffo piqued my interest. Click below to see the cover art for Jackie and see the dates released this far for her upcoming Jackie Tour. More »
