#LiveItUP and GO GO GO GO GO GO GO
Back in 2011, Pitbull teamed up with Jennifer Lopez on her then single On the Floor and the pair enjoyed some bit of success together. More recently, Pitbull teamed up with Christina Aguilera on a single titled Feel This Moment … which has been enjoying a bit more success (you can hear the song featured in almost every TV promo these days). As a result, J. Lo decided she wanted to work with Pitbull again today we get to hear their brand new summer single Live It Up.

Talk That Talk
Back in March, Kelly Rowland dropped the music video for her naughty new single Kisses Down Low … the first from her forthcoming new album titled Talk a Good Game. Today we get our first look at the album artwork for Talk a Good Game and as you can see below, Kelly is bringing the sexy BIG TIME. It would appear that Ms. Rowland is pulling out all the stops for the promotion of her new album and I have to say, she is doing a bang up job of making folks take notice. More »
Some Folks are NOT Happy with the Changes
The Walt Disney Company has decided to bestow the honor of being an official Disney Princess on the character of Merida from the 2012 animated film Brave … but in doing so, they decided to give her a bit of a makeover. Unlike the original version of the character, this new incarnation of Merida is “skinner, sexier and more mature” … that is, according to fans who are angry that the character was changed at all. So while some are celebrating Merida‘s elevation to official Disney Princess, others are really angry that the character’s appearance had to be changed in order to enjoy her new status as Disney Princess.

It's Pretty Dope
Earlier today we got to listen to a snippet of Back To Black, the highly-anticipated Amy Winehouse cover from Beyoncé and André 3000. The Great Gatsby soundtrack is turning out to be as awesome as I thought it would be when we first saw the tracklist; I loved what we heard of the Back To Black cover and I loved, loved, loved that Florence + The Machine track. Today we’re also getting the full version of Lana Del Rey‘s contribution to the soundtrack, Young & Beautiful. Click inside for more!
PITNBr James, Your Carey Mulligan/Blake Lively Rant Was Perfect!
For many of our friends, family, and fellow PITNBrs in Boston, this was the week of suck. I can’t even imagine what it must have felt like to be in Boston during the manhunt– and subsequent city lockdown– for the Boston marathon bombing suspects. I want to start this week’s round-up by thanking all of y’all who came through and shared comments, information, and reliable news sources with PITNB: Shavonne, AmandaMarie, Lauren xx, Emily, Lindsay, Tania Quinn, kmw9260, all shared comments, info, and personal stories regarding the events. We love you all and we thank you– same to all those readers who weighed in with messages of support, and those who didn’t comment but are always a part of this crew. I’m always, always proud to be a part of such an awesome community :) So let’s celebrate more of the awesomeness, inside!
Prepare to be Impressed
Last month we learned that the members of the boy band One Direction were having wax statues of their likenesses made by the fine artisans at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. Today we get our first look at the final products as the statues were unveiled at the Madame Tussaud’s in London, England this weekend. As you can see below, the eerily lifelike wax statues turned out very impressively, if I do say so myself. For the press reveal, the wax version of One Direction were accessorized by real life fangirls … you’ve just gotta see the photos below. More »
J-Law, Justin Timberlake, & Malala Yousafzai Also Make The List
His wife may be in the midst of a very serious faux-nipple controversy, but Jay-Z is pretty much having the best day ever. TIME Magazine just released their highly-anticipated 100 Most Influential People In The World list and Jigga man is rocking the cover of their big issue. Considering all of the headlines he’s been making lately– very few of which have to do with his rap career, which is still on and poppin’– I wasn’t that surprised to see him on the cover. He’s a huge deal, and rightfully so. Click inside to see who else made the list, and to read what Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg had to say about Shawn Carter himself.
