Back in August we learned that Eminem is planning the release of a new Shady Records compilation titled ShadyXV and last month, we got to see the cover art for the album. Today we get to hear a new song from the album titled Detroit Vs. Everybody and as you can hear, the rap anthem features an all-star collection of Detroit hip hop artists … including Royce Da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf and Trick Trick. The song contains some adult language so it is very likely NSFW but if you’re in a place where you can listen, you’re gonna wanna hear this great new song. ShadyXV will be released on November 24.
Yesterday there was a story going around about how Nicki Minaj used striking Nazi imagery in the lyric video for her new single Only and I decided not to share the video here on the blog because I really have no interest in showcasing anything that is even remotely Nazi-related. Just a few hours ago, tho, Nicki issued a formal apology for her offensive music video on her official Twitter profile taking responsibility for the error in judgement — after she makes plainly clear that it really was “the artist” she hired to make the video for her who is at fault. SMH. Click below to read Nicki‘s mea culpa for this unfortunate gaffe. More »

Taylor Swift, the everything “It” girl of the moment, is featured on the cover of the new issue of Wonderland magazine and as you can see below … she is pretty unrecognizable in her coverphoto photo. To be honest, I didn’t believe that it was really Taylor on the cover of this new issue of Wonderland but her name is splashed on the cover and upon close inspection you can see that it is her … but with severe eyebrows that almost transform her face entirely. See the full photo below and get a look at this new incarnation of Taylor Swift. More »
Last week Lorde released the music video for her new song Yellow Flicker Beat, which is featured on the motion picture soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 — an album that she curated. Today, we get our first listen of the Kanye West remix version of the song. To be completely honest, I am terribly unimpressed with this “rework”ed version of the song because I find the subtlety to be quite boring. The original version of the song is just fine the way it is … Kanye‘s remix doesn’t really add to the song, nor does it transform it in any interesting way. Still, I’m sure it was a thrill for Lorde to get Yeezus to remix her song for inclusion on this soundtrack so … good for her. Have a listen above, see what you think. Are you impressed with Flicker (Kanye West Rework)?
Our dear Britney Spears, it would seem, is very enamored of her new beau Charlie Ebersol that she cannot resist showing him off to her millions of followers on social media. Over the weekend, Britney showed us the first photo of the couple together — Spebersol, I’m calling them — and just a short time ago, she shared the second photo of the lovebirds on her official Facebook profile (as well as her other social media accounts). Click below to see how cute Brit and Chuck look together and see how well lurve looks on both their faces. More »
The video embedded above has been online for a few years now but it’s just now making the rounds again due to its very disturbing nature. When Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope was being filmed, a different voice was used for Darth Vader before James Earl Jones‘s deep, sonorous voice was added. The video above lets you hear what Darth Vader sounds like with his original voice, provided by David Prowse … and it is very unsettling. Ready to have all of your dreams dashed? Click above to hear what Darth Vader really sounds like. I’m so sorry.
It’s been many months since Solange stole headlines with that elevator fight incident she had with Jay Z earlier this year but if the rumors are to be believed, she’s about to make news again this coming weekend when she marries her longtime boyfriend Alan Furguson. Us Weekly magazine is reporting that Solange and Alan will tie the knot in a wedding ceremony in New Orleans, LA this coming weekend which should garner a lot of positive, happy attention for Ms. Solange Knowles.

The world premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 took place in London, England tonight in front of a mass of screaming fans. We are just days away from the theatrical release of Mockingjay but before we peons get to see the film, it has to be premiered at red carpet events all over the world. Tonight’s premiere is the first of many and as you can see in the gallery presented here, the stars dressed up in their stylist best for the affair. I love Jennifer Lawrence‘s clean, simple outfit but I think Elizabeth Banks‘s dress is my fave. Julianne Moore looks utterly perfect and Lorde, bless her heart, was a big fashion MISS for me (that puffed up suit is just not doing her any favors — love the severe make-up, tho). Check out the photos to see who wore what on the red carpet tonight.
In late September, Fergie Ferg returned to the music scene with her new single LA Love (La La) which has been released in lyric video form and remix featuring YG form. Today we get to see the just-released music video for LA Love (La La) (Remix Featuring YG) that was shot on the streets of Los Angeles last month. I’m actually very pleased that the video features the remix version of the song because I really dig the slightly different sound from the original single version … as well as YG‘s contributions to the song. Check out the video above and see if you LA Love it.
Two weeks ago we got our first listen of a new Marilyn Manson song titled Third Day of a Seven Day Binge which, I guessed, would be the first single from a forthcoming — as yet untitled — new album. Today we learn officially that MM is planning the release of said album for the new year. The Pale Emperor is scheduled for release on January 20 and pre-orders are available now. Click below to see the cover art for Emperor and see the album tracklisting. More »
