Just in time for NYE
Pitbull and Ne-Yo have teamed up for a party anthem titled Time of Our Lives and today we get to see the new music video for the track. As you can see above, the video is set on New Year’s Eve 1999 — back when Pitbull was still a nobody. The song isn’t the greatest (Ne-Yo is the real draw here) but for the cheese factor alone, the video is worth checking out. Could this song be the party anthem for NYE this year? I sure hope not.
"You're a copycat, get back / I'm always on your mind"
Last August, lyrics from an alleged Madonna diss track titled Two Steps Behind Me about Lady Gaga were released online. Because no audio ever surfaced to corroborate the authenticity of the lyrics, the story kinda went nowhere … until yesterday. In the wake of an initial 13 leaked demo songs from the recording sessions for Madonna‘s as-yet unreleased album Rebel Heart and after another 17 unfinished demo songs were subsequently leaked, 3 more demo songs leaked yesterday … including the so-called Lady Gaga diss track Two Steps Behind Me. It turns out that the lyrics that were released in August were 100% correct (“You’re a copycat, Where is my royalty? You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look“). In response to the demo leak, Lady Gaga posted a nasty message on her official Instagram profile seemingly directed at Madonna even as Madonna and her manager Guy Oseary tried to convince us that the diss track isn’t directed at Gaga (yeah right). The leaking of Madonna‘s demos continues to get messier … and we are still more than 2 months away from the release of Madonna‘s album. OY!

Spongebob Squarpants is getting his very own major motion picture movie next year and for the occasion, Pharrell managed to stage a reunion of N.E.R.D. so that they could create new music for the film’s soundtrack. The original song Squeeze Me by N.E.R.D. has been made available today and as you can hear below, it’s a pretty infectious earworm that will likely live inside your brain until the end of time. Have you ever wondered what a mixture of Pharrell, N.E.R.D. and Spongebob might sound like? Click below and find out. More »
Just play it all day long
Xmas is here again and you know what that means … it means it’s time to listen to and dance your buns off to the GREATEST XMAS SONG OF ALL TIME! And while there is much discussion over which song, exactly, is the greatest Xmas song of all time, I love to make the case for My Only Wish (This Year) by our dear Britney Spears. My suggestion, always, is to listen to this song a few times today … 5 times, 67 times, whatever … and let the Britmas spirit enter your soul and bring you tidings of yuletide bliss. My only wish this year is for each of you to have an amazing holiday season, whatever you celebrate — or don’t celebrate. Love you all!!
I Am A Claus
An industrious comedy troupe called Local Business Comedy have turned Kanye West‘s album Yeezus into a brilliant Xmas album titled Kreezus. The songs on Yeezus have been adapted and changed into Xmas songs with titles like I Am A Claus, New Sleighs, I’m In It (The Chimney) and more. I’m not sure from whence came this amazing bolt of creative inspiration but as far as Xmas gifts go, this one is a pretty sweet one. Click below to hear Kreezus in full. More »
An early Xmas present
Dwayne The Rock Johnson got all dolled up in a Xmas onesie for his appearance on Live with Kelly and Michael this morning and as you can see in the embed above, he performed a terrific karaoke rendition of Here Comes Santa Claus. I mean, really, what more is there to say? Check out the video and please enjoy.
30 songs total have leaked (thus far)
OMG … this is so unbelievable that I couldn’t even believe it when I first heard it but now that I have confirmed this news as true, I’m a believer. After 13 unfinished demo songs were leaked online earlier this month, Madonna decided to move up the release of her new album in order to get some of her finished songs in the hands of fans. Last Friday night, Madonna released the first 6 songs from her upcoming album Rebel Heart … and then she gave a few interviews talking about much the theft and leaking of her music has affected her. Today we learn that another 17 demo songs have leaked online as well. I first heard that more Madonna songs had leaked last night but honest, I thought it was a joke. There was surely NO WAY that more Madonna songs would leak now that she put the clamp down on her music. Initially, it was said that only 14 songs had leaked … but I can confirm that, so far, 17 songs have leaked, including Back That Up (Do It) Featuring Pharrell, Iconic, Hold Tight, God Is Love, Veni Vidi Vici, S.E.X. and more. I mean, wow. 30 songs in total have leaked from Madonna‘s Rebel Heart album era — and the album isn’t even due for full release until March! Wow. More »

Last week we got our first look at the first promo video released for the forthcoming final season of Glee and, as you may recall, we also got our first taste of Lea Michele singing everyone’s favorite Frozen song Let It Go. Today, because I love you so much, I bring you the full audio of Lea‘s Let It Go. As you can hear in the embed above, Lea‘s version isn’t really all that different from Idina Menzel‘s original version so if you love the song, you’re probably gonna love this version of it. If you don’t love the song, then my deepest apologies.
"You better watch out"
One Direction paid a visit to The Tonight Show to do a bit of holiday promo and they were asked to perform a lovely classroom instruments rendition of the holiday classic song Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town with host Jimmy Fallon and house band The Roots. The result is nothing short of delightful. Click the embed above to watch this live performance which aired last night, complete with ugly sweaters in tow and WITHOUT Harry Styles‘s totally fug Quaker hat. It really is beginning to look a lot like Xmas.
