Ciara Sang The National Anthem At A Football Game And All People Could Talk About Were Her Boobs

Ciara

It was a Monday night. The Alabama Crimson Tide were playing the Clemson Tigers in the College Football championships. Ciara was singing the National Anthem. The lady is talented, and by talented I mean she is an amazing dancer. And hey, I’m not saying she can’t sing either, but the National Anthem just isn’t the song for her.

Ciara’s voice aside, the real issue is that her cleavage bearing dress, which I actually found rather modest, has been under fire since the game. Sports fans have been tweeting things like “She should cover up for the children!” Proving that we do, in fact, still live in age that hasn’t shed its puritan skin.  More »

Watch: Adele Belts Out ‘Hello’ With James Corden In New Carpool Karaoke Teaser

Coming Wednesday!

AH! This is the Carpool Karaoke we’ve been waiting for! Adele finally joins James Corden in the next instalment of the super popular Late Late Show skit. We absolutely loved when Justin Bieber and One Direction joined him, but this is Adele…singing “Hello” in a car… like we all do every time it comes on the radio! Set to air on Wednesday, Adele can also be heard singing “Rolling in the Deep” in the teaser. It also looks like Carpool Karaoke just enjoyed its first London-based edition! After calling up Adele for a lift using the opening lines of her record-breaking single, the British singer jumps in and they begin chatting about her hair. “I can’t work out if I should have a wig-wig or have a weave,” Adele asks James to which he responds, “What I like is that you’re coming to me for this advice!” Watch the hilarious preview above — you’ll be sure to laugh and sing along!

Remembering The Great Love Of David Bowie And Iman

David Bowie and Iman

He was one of the most iconic rock stars and artists in the world, and she one of the most successful supermodels. It’s not like that story hasn’t been told before, but with David Bowie and Iman, there was something a little different. And while David passed yesterday at age 69 after a battle with cancer, we now can’t help but remember their love. The pair was together for 25 years, which is not only a feat for a Hollywood relationship, but for any relationship these days. What do you think kept them together? It seems that part of it was that the couple retained a semblance of normalcy. 

In 2014, Iman told The Guardian that she didn’t fall in love with David Bowie. More »

Celebs Pay Tribute To The Great David Bowie

Innovative musician David Bowie died peacefully on Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer, leaving the world in shock. He kept his illness very private making the news even more devastating. Bowie also passed only days after turning 69 and releasing his 25th studio album, Blackstar. Everyone probably has a favorite Bowie era, from his first hit “Space Oddity” in 1969, to his androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust and “Fame” and Heroes fame in the ’70s, to his smash hit Let’s Dance album in the ’80s. My favorite Bowie song of all time is probably “Ashes to Ashes” – singing it in my head as we speak.

Many celebrities and musicians took to social media to express their grief and pay respects to this incredible artist.

Lady Gaga Says Her New Album Is Coming In 2016, But Won’t Say Exactly When

After winning a Golden Globe last night, Lady Gaga confirmed that we will get a new album this year!

I won’t tell you when!​” How exciting!? We’re lovin’ the fact that she’s an actress now and that she might star in another season of AHS, but new music…ah!  More »

Get Ready Xtina Fans, New Music Is On Its Way!

Xtina

Oh snap! Yesterday Christina Aguilera posted a captionless photo of herself working in the studio, leading us to believe she’ll finally have some new, juicy material to hear soon! Xtina hasn’t released an album since 2012′s Lotus, which was her least successful one to date.

I felt that Bionic, the album prior, was a little Gaga-esque, and wanted something a bit more authentic, so hopefully that’s what we’ll get with the new stuff. Idolator has confirmed that Christina has two albums coming, both a Spanish speaking album, and a follow up to Lotus. More »

Rashida Jones’ ’90s Themed Music Video Is Taking Us Back To Better Days

Rashida Jones

You know, the days when we wore those giant hoop earrings and baggy clothes, and before we were texting all the time. Rashida Jones recently recorded a ’90s-sounding R&B track with Sunny Levine, called “Flip and Rewind.” The name already summons all the nostalgia, but the video really takes us there. It opens with Rashida on set working. She goes into her trailer, and FaceTimes with Jermaine Dupri, lamenting on how much she misses the ’90s, until she’s transported there.

Rashida also co-directed the video with her writing partner Will McCormack. More »

Listen: Shakira Releases Her New ‘Zootopia’ Theme Song And It’s Very Shakira

It's time to "Try Everything"!

Colombian superstar Shakira released her new song “Try Everything,” the theme song to the upcoming Disney animated flick Zootopia, and it has all of her signature sounds. Lots of drums, a chorus to back her up and plenty of beats to make you shimmy around the house. If you’re into that kind of thing, that is. It’s the first single the former The Voice judge has released since her self-titled 2014 album. As for Zootopia, it’s set in a world where all types of animals live together in a big city, with regular jobs and everything. The story follows Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin), a rookie cop who is the first bunny on the force. She has to team up with a wily fox (voiced by Jason Bateman) to solve a mysterious case and to prove Judy isn’t just cute, she’s tough, too. Shakira voices a pop star named Gazelle, who must get involved in some fashion. Should be the perfect movie to take your kid to during spring break. Zootopia opens in theaters March 4, 2016.
