Listen to her new single 'Run-Time' NOW!
Imogen Heap, who I love SO MUCH, is readying the release of a new album titled Sparks and I am FREAKING out with excited anticipation. I fell in love with Imogen when she toured with Rufus Waiwright on his first US tour way back in the late 90s. Rufus was great on that tour but my first boyfriend and I became obsessed with Imogen. Her debut album didn’t do much here in the US so she released her next album under the moniker Frou Frou and found the success she deserved. I’ve been hearing crazy things about the creation of her new album Sparks, things confirmed by the press release that is posted below. Click below to see the cover for Sparks, learn more about the album and listen to her new song Run-Time in full. More »

The Madden Brothers have a new album titled Greetings From California on the way but before their collection of songs is released we get to check out the music video for their new single. We Are Done sounds like a bit of a departure from the music they made with Good Charlotte, which is great because their new sound is very LA.

Earlier today Shannon revealed the struggle she has with the red carpet fashions at The BET Awards last night but I was too obsessed with the on stage reunion of Color Me Badd during the awards show to pay attention to, well, anything else. Three of the four original members of Color Me Badd reunited for a live performance of their 1991 hit I Wanna Sex You Up and altho the performance left much to be desired, I loved it completely and absolutely. CMB‘s performance was part of a throwback homage to the 90s and, honestly, was the only thing I had eyes or ears for. Click the video above to watch Color Me Badd‘s performance of I Wanna Sex You Up at The BET Awards last night (their performance starts at the 1:25 minute mark) and let’s go back to the early 90s together, shall we?

This month we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of Prince‘s masterpiece soundtrack album Purple Rain … but we are not celebrating nearly as fabulous as Prince is celebrating in Minneapolis, MN this weekend.

Ariana Grande fans, rejoice! Geez, I can remember when I was first kind of “discovering” her awesomeness way back in the day. I thought she was great, but I definitely had no idea she was going to blow up like this. The lead single off her sophomore project, Problem, is still sittin’ pretty on the Billboard charts at #2, and she sat down with Ryan Seacrest to share some big news about the album.
