Are you feelin' this?
Last November, punk pop band Blink-182 performed a string of concerts here in LA that got people thinking that the band was ready to get back into the studio to record a new album. The last time the band released anything new was, like, a million years ago … WAY back in 2011. Today we learn that the prayers of loyal Blink fans have been answered because Tom Delonge has announced on Instagram that Blink-182 are currently in rehearsals for a set of live performances … and for the recording of a new album! Huzzah! More »

Back in April we learned of a report that claims that singer Adele will release a new album in October. In May, Adele herself suggested that the title of her next album will be titled 25. Today, courtesy of the World Music Awards, we learn that Adele‘s album is “confirmed” with a world tour to follow in 2015. The WMAs tweeted this Adele news with the claim that she has “confirmed” the information but there is no record of her confirming anything, anywhere … at least, not yet. Click below to read the tweet and see what you think of this report of new Adele music. More »

Back in April we learned that boybanders Nick Carter (of Backstreet Boys) and Jordan Knight (of New Kids on the Block) were teaming up to create a new music duo called Nick & Knight with a forthcoming album and tour to come later in the year. Today we get our first listen of the debut single One More Time by Nick & Knight and, I gotta say, the track isn’t all that bad. In all honesty, I can’t say that I was all that interested in hearing music by Nick and Jordan primarily because I didn’t believe that their new music would be able to surpass the fun pop music they’ve already released with their respective boy bands BSB and NKOTB. But, after a couple of listens, I’m really enjoying this new single. The chorus is really catchy and I’m telling you, you’ll be singing along with the Woo Oohs by the song’s end. Have a listen above, see what you think. Are you a fan of Nick & Knight?
Stop what you’re doing RIGHT NOW and watch the just released music video for Paris Hilton‘s new single/song of the summer Come Alive by clicking the embed above. Having watched the video myself, I know that it may be difficult to get thru the whole thing without LOLing your ass off but … give it a chance. Come Alive is one of the best songs released this year (so far) and is a bona fide contender for song of the summer. Paris the pop star is back, y’all!! We are not worthy!!
So … I gotta know … what do YOU think of this music video?!
On Friday we learned that HBO will air in full a concert special from Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s summer On The Run Tour and today we get our first look at the first trailer for the event. The performance that will air on HBO in September will be filmed live in France so the trailer above features footage from the shows the pair have performed here in the US already. It’s a short tease but should give you a taste of what’s to come. I can’t wait!
No more Rihanna-related beef?
Who can forget the beef-tastic beef heard ’round the world? I was just a wee, young blogger when Drake and Chris Brown lit’rally tore da club up and destroyed W.i.P nightclub in NYC, as they were allegedly in a fight over Rihanna. A lot’s changed since that fight. Chris is back with Karreuche (at least they were, but I do see he’s taken down some Instagram photos of her… not that I’ve been paying attention) and Drake and Rihanna were doing a thing that is supposedly over now. So, Chris and Drake are apparently cool now? They were up in the studio together so it seems like yes. Click inside for more!
'You & I (Nobody In The World)'
John Legend has released the music video for his new single You & I (Nobody In The World) and as you can see above, it is truly one of the most beautifully executed and surprisingly powerful music videos in recent memory. The theme of the video is simple, women of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, ages, etc. look into the camera as if they were looking into a mirror. What we see throughout this video is the beauty that exists in all people, personified by the women who appear in this video. Among the women who are featured are actresses Laverne Cox and Tatyana Ali, along with Legend’s beautiful wife Chrissy Teigen. But, for me, I’m most taken with the non-famous women from all walks of life that are featured in the video. Have a look above, I think you will like what you see.
So … Robin Thicke released his new album Paula both here in the US and internationally in the UK and after the first week sales have been tallied, the news isn’t really great for poor Robin. In the UK, he only sold 530 copies of his new album in the entire first week of availability. Yeesh. Here in the US, he sold a few more albums. In it’s first week of sales here in the US, Thicke sold about 25,000 copies of Paula … which pales in comparison to the first week sales of his last album Blurred Lines (177,000). It doesn’t sound like people are all that interested in hearing Robin sing/stalk his estranged wife Paula Patton, does it? More »

'Girl', at work
Yesterday we got to check out the second trailer for David Fincher‘s new movie Gone Girl which features original music written for the film by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Just a short time ago, TR posted a photo on Facebook that was snapped during the recording of the Gone Girl score, taken on the 20th Century Fox studio lot. Reznor and Nine Inch Nails have been really bizzy on tour over seas for the past few months but he is now back in LA working hard on the Gone Girl score. See for yourselves below. More »
Your That-Ish-Cray o' the Day
Jimmy Fallon, in character as Neil Young, teamed up with classic crooners Crosby, Stills & Nash last night on The Tonight Show for an amazing cover performance of Iggy Azalea‘s hit song Fancy. As you might imagine, the performance turned out hilariously silly and, yet, shockingly entertaining. Fallon‘s impersonation of Neil Young is always perfect … but the inclusion of Crosby, Stills & Nash for the performance is just too damn good. Check out the performance above and fall in love.
