Jimmy Fallon continues to KILL IT as new host of The Tonight Show on NBC as is clearly evident in the video above of his performance of Ignition (Remix) by R. Kelly. Jimmy and his group The Ragtime Gals put their spin on the classic R&B track as only they can do … and they did so brilliantly. Check out the video about and hear how sexy ragtime music can sound when performed in the right way. Toot Toot. Beep Beep.
It was a total Freakshow
Britney Spears hosted a very special guest on stage last night during her Britney: Piece of Me performance in Las Vegas … the one and only Nicole Richie. During Britney‘s set, a special guest is selected from the audience to come up on stage and be part of the show. Last night, that special guest was Nicole. During Britney‘s performance of Freakshow, Nicole was brought on stage, harnessed and led around on a leash while Britney whipped her with a riding crop. Sounds like fun, right? Click below to see Nicole on stage, on all fours during Britney‘s show last night. UPDATE: There’s video of Nicole on stage with Britney! Watch below!! More »
Last December, Miley Cyrus released her sexy ballad Adore You which garnered much attention because of how porny the video looked. Today, Miley drops a remix of Adore You that amps up the tempo of her ballad and turns it into a clubby dance track. Cedric Gervais is responsible for this remix and I have to day … I much prefer the song as an uptempo song to dance to. Click the embed above to hear the Miley Cyrus vs. Cedric Gervais remix of Adore You and see if it makes you want to dance. The video features all of the supersexy scenes that are included in the original music video for Adore You so you may want to watch with caution. Please enjoy.
Yesterday we got to hear a tiny portion of Kylie Minogue‘s new duet with fellow popstar Enrique Iglesias in the Kiss Me Once album sampler that I posted and today we get to hear a much longer portion of the song. Beautiful will be included both on Kylie‘s new album Kiss Me Once and on Enrique‘s new album Sex and Love and as you can hear above, the pair make beautiful music together (har har). Honestly, I’m not really crazy of the use of auto-tune in parts of the song but the lyrics are sweet and I can hear how this may turn out to be a really great ballad. I’d love to hear a more stripped down version of the song without the audio manipulation but, I guess, this is what the song will sound like in the final album version. Have a listen above and see what you think.
"We weren't expecting ... that level of insult"
Late last month, as you may recall, Trent Reznor blasted the producers of The Grammy Awards for the way they treated his Nine Inch Nails performance at the close of the Grammy Awards this year. During NIN‘s finale performance (which also featured Lindsey Buckingham, Dave Grohl and Queens of the Stone Age), producers cut off the end of the supergroup’s performance so that they could air commercial ads. Reznor‘s response was, F***k you. In a new interview that Trent gave to promote NIN‘s upcoming tour of New Zealand, he talks at some length about the Grammy Awards debacle and he makes very clear that he will never perform on the Grammys ever again. The rest of the interview is really a great read … Reznor also talks about Beats Music, 40 unreleased demo songs that may one day see the light of day and he talks a bit about the musical score he is working on for the new David Fincher film Gone Girl.

"I'm Jimmy Fallon and I’ll be your host … for now."
About 2 weeks ago, Jay Leno stepped down as host of the late night talk show The Tonight Show so that he could pass the baton on to new host Jimmy Fallon. Last night, Fallon hosted his first episode of The Tonight Show to some fanfare. For the most part, Jimmy‘s Tonight Show felt similar to his long-running stint as host of Late Night so longtime fans were likely pleased with his debut last night. Jimmy brought out guests U2 and Will Smith along with a strong of surprise guest stars who wanted to cameo on Fallon‘s first episode of The Tonight Show. Click below to watch lots of video highlights from last night’s Tonight Show and see how much fun this new era of late night talk will be. More »
