She performed 'Love Me Harder' and 'Break Free'
Diva or no, Ariana Grande is getting lots of props for her performance on last night’s Saturday Night Live season premiere. She took the stage to sing Love Me Harder, and again for Break Free (with The Weeknd). I want to say that she looks great, but there’s only one set of cat ears that I can take seriously. But I guess, more to the point, she sounded lovely. Peep the video above for her performance of Break Free, and click inside for Love Me Harder!

JHUD is the Truth
All day I’ve been in Scandal-ville (a gallery here, another one here), but that doesn’t mean I forgot about Throwback Thursday! Jennifer Hudson‘s new album JHUD is getting ready to drop, and sometimes I forget how much I’m kind of obsessed with her. J-Hud is amazing. And the whole world realized that when Dreamgirls came out back in 2006, and she had movie-goers on their feet with that epic I Am Telling You scene. CHILLLLllllls. And the rest of the soundtrack was pretty incredible too. Click inside for more!

He played it 3 times for lucky guests
Last month we got to hear a short portion of Kanye West‘s new song All Day which will, supposedly, be included on his as-yet-untitled new album … which is due out at an as-yet-unannounced time.

Last month, Hilary Duff released a new song titled All About You followed by a cute lyric video for the song … which will be featured on Hilary‘s as-yet-untitled new album, supposedly due out next month. Today we get to see the just-released music video for All About You which proves, once and for all, that Hil D. is BACK! In the video, Hilary creeps on a hot guy (with her Amazon Fire Phone) and then uses her sleuthing skills to find this mysterious but hot stranger using only a vinyl album that he accidentally left behind. It’s actually less cheesy than it sounds while watching the video … which you can do by clicking the embed above.
These 'Britney Jean' demos are remarkable
During production of Britney Spears‘s most recent album, Britney Jean, she worked with a host of producers and songwriters on songs that were being considered for inclusion on the album. When will.i.am was made executive producer of the album, it was pretty much determined that all of the most exciting options for the album would not make the cut and will’s boring vision for the album would shape Britney Jean. Today we get to hear portions of two demos that were written for Britney‘s album by Blood Orange (whose real name is Devonté Dev Hynes) that have mysteriously made their way online. The songs may not stay online for long, tho, so click below and have a listen while you can. You MUST hear what Britney‘s album could’ve sounded like. More »
