ALERT! ALERT! Our dear Britney Spears has just shared the news that she is CURRENTLY in the studio RIGHT NOW recording a song as I type these words. According to the short message on her official Twitter profile to fans, she is working on a song for “her boys” … which likely means her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James but could also refer to “her boys” at large, as in, her fans. HMMM. More »

Last month we saw the first official photo of Ashton Kutcher in character as the late Apple founder Steve Jobs in the forthcoming biopic film jOBS due out in April. That official photo and the previous on set photos we saw showed Kutcher as the young Jobs. Today we get to check out a new photo that shows us what the actor looks like as middle-aged Jobs. Ashton shared a photo on his official Twitter profile that is a side-by-side comparison of his version of Steve Jobs and Jobs himself … the result is pretty damn creepy. Check it out below. More »
The documented celebrity hairstyle is everything right about now. Last year we saw Miley Cyrus sharing her experience, along with Jessica Alba, Snooki, and Alicia Keys. Methinks Karlie Kloss did it best, but she also had Vogue Magazine helping her out with the before and after pics, lol. Nicole Richie is now joining the ranks, and recently took to Twitter to share a photo of her new ‘do. Click inside for more!

The Secret's Out
So … it may be President Barack Obama‘s Second Inauguration Day and it may be Martin Luther King, Jr. Day but … apparently, it’s also Beyoncé Knowles Runs the World Day, as well. Earlier today, Bey performed a STUNNING rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner at Obama‘s swearing in ceremony and right now we get to learn some new Beyoncé news that will likely thrill many. Bey has teamed up with H&M to release a line of clothes later this year … the only problem is that we are not supposed to know this yet. Bey sneaked off to shoot photos for the campaign and one of her dancers accidentally spilled the beans about what the shoot was for, before H&M could make the official announcement. Whoops! But, Yay!

"Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh--"
This is either really awkward… or really awesome, depending on where you stand politically. Lupe Fiasco, known for being a strong lyricist whose songs reflect great sociopolitical concerns (and for inspiring folks like Kanye West to take a similar approach to rap), performed his song Words I Never Said at an unofficial inaugural ball. Many headlines are incorrectly stating that Lupe went on an anti-Obama rant. As far as I can tell from the video he wasn’t ranting, just rapping the lyrics to his song– and there’s only one line that could be deemed anti-Obama: Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist/Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn’t say shit/That’s why I ain’t vote for him, next one either… (you can read the rest of the lyrics at DirectLyrics). In reality, the song is anti-establishment. Lupe names Obama and other politicians, but also stresses the fact that he wouldn’t vote for any of these guys, because he’s ultimately anti-war and war plays a huge part of any political campaign, including Obama‘s. Check out the video above to see the altercation, which finally ended in Lupe being removed from the stage, and click inside for more.
P.S. I’m Team Lupe. Just for the record.
Actress Anna Kendrick posted a message on her official Twitter profile that surprised some, shocked others and entertained pretty much everyone … I think. Earlier this week, Anna confessed to partaking in a very personal act while in the back row of a movie theater showing a Ryan Gosling film (presumably, Gangster Squad). Now, I’m not sure if Anna was kidding or not … but she deffo wasn’t playing around ;) Click below to read the full text of Anna‘s tweet. More »

But No, No New Single... YET!
Earlier today Trent got us all hyped up for the possible, long-awaited musical return of the one they call Justin Timberlake. I know lots of us were hoping to hear a new jam, but it’s not happening today. However, y’all will be excited to know that it absolutely IS happening! At 9:01 am PST, just as promised, Justin tweeted a message to his fans: To whom it may concern…I think I’M READY! #JT2013. And he shared the above video, which shows him heading back into the studio! THEN, at the end of his video a countdown started on his official website, which leads me to believe that in THREE days, we’re gonna hear some new ish. Between this and Britney Spears‘s new album, methinks pop music is about to have a pretty ginormous year. Happy 2013, ya’ll! It’s going dooooowwwwwn!

The Song May be Released TODAY at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET
Last August there was a rumor going around that Justin Timberlake was working on new music for release … but shortly after the rumor took flight, JT‘s publicist squashed the report by claiming he absolutely was NOT working on new solo material. Last night, Justin posted a cryptic tweet that read “Thursday, January 10th, 2013 at 9:01 am PST…” which immediately sent everyone into a tizzy. Billboard magazine is reporting that JT is not only planning to release a new single at the appointed time today but that he is also readying the imminent release of an ENTIRE NEW ALBUM! As if that wasn’t exciting enough news, rumor has it that Justin worked on this new music with Timbaland — and Jay-Z! UM, OMG! More »

"I know a lot of you are rabid for info ..."
Last week we learned that Britney Spears is working with Watch the Throne producer Hit-Boy on new music for her next album and today we get a bit more information about Britney‘s recent recording sessions.

Altho he doesn’t offer much new information, he does confirm that Britney is working with Hit-Boy and he reveals another producer that Britney is collaborating with :) More »
