First Listen: Lily Allen Namechecks Rihanna, Lorde, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga & More In Her New Single ‘Sheezus’

She is Risen

Back in February Lily Allen announced that her new album would be named Sheezus and in March she dropped the music video for her most recent single Our Time. Today we get our first look/listen of the title track of Lily‘s new album which, as you can hear above, namechecks a few of Allen‘s popstar contemporaries … Beyoncé, Lorde, Katy Perry, etc. The song is a slower jam (produced by DJ Dahi), the lyrics are fantastic (I’ll take the hits, roll with the punches / I’ll get back up, it’s not as if I’ve never done this / But then again, the game is changing / Can’t just come back, jump on the mic and do the same thing) and the video itself is kinda freaky. Sheezus has risen, y’all. After you watch the video above, click below to see the full tracklisting for the Sheezus album which hits stores on May 6 here in the US. More »

Watch: Stephen Colbert Delivered His Own ‘Top 10′ List On ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ Last Night

The Top 10 Cocktails for Santa

Last night, Stephen Colbert paid his first visit to The Late Show with David Letterman since it was announced a couple of weeks ago that he has been chosen to succeed Letterman as host of the late night talk show when he retires next year. As expected, all Letterman and Colbert talked and joked about was Stephen‘s forthcoming ascension to the hosting gig of The Late Show. Colbert revealed that he was up for an internship on The Late Show many years ago but he decided not to accept the position. As part of the application process back then, he submitted a Top 10 List that he wrote for the show and read that list on air last night. Click the video above to see the Top 10 Cocktails for Santa as delivered by Stephen Colbert. Then, click below to watch a couple extra video clips from The Late Show last night as well as a fun selfie that Stephen snapped with Dave on set last night. More »

Lupita Nyong’o Is ‘People’ Magazine’s Most Beautiful Person Of 2014

People magazine has unveiled its annual Most Beautiful People issue and to no one’s surprise whatsoever they selected the incomparable Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o as THE Most Beautiful Person to grace this special issue. Lupita, as you may be well aware, absolutely stunned the world in the past half year with her powerful, Oscar-winning acting performance in 12 Years a Slave but she also captured the hearts and minds of almost every one with her killer sense of style and beauty. My guess is that People magazine likely had the easiest time selecting this year’s coverstar because without question, Lupita is the absolutely most beautiful person right now. Nyong’o is joined on the list of Most Beautiful for 2014 by Scandal star Kerry Washington, Mindy Kaling, Keri Russel, P!nk and more. Click thru the gallery to see some of this year’s Most Beautiful People as selected by People magazine then click below to read a portion of the coverstory feature on Queen Lupita Nyong’o. More »

Watch: Tori Amos Talks Experimentation On Her New Album ‘Unrepentant Geraldines’

"I needed to try things"

Tori Amos has been promoting the forthcoming release of her new album Unrepentant Geraldines like a boss in recent weeks. Yesterday, we got to see a cute selfie that she snapped during her media promo tour in Paris, France but for the most part, she’s been releasing interview snippets at pretty regular intervals. Today we get to see a short snippet of video where Tori talks a bit about the experimentation she did on her new album. We still have a few weeks left to go before Unrepentant Gerladines is released so I guess we’ll have to make do with these promo bits in the meantime.

First Listen: Beyoncé Features On The New Boots Song ‘Dreams’

Beyoncé‘s BFF producer Boots (who worked on much of Bey‘s new album) has just dropped a single titled Dreams and, wouldn’t you know it, Ms. Bey is featured on the track as well. Beyoncé sings back-up and one verse on dreams but Boots is the real star of this song. The track is a sexy slow jam which should appeal to folks who are into that kind of thing (I’m more of a club-banger, high energy song fan but even I enjoy this song). Have a listen below and get to know Boots. More »

Listen: Local H Rocks Out On Their Cover Of ‘Team’ By Lorde

"Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams"

PITNB reader Christine pointed me in the direction of this BRILLIANT cover of Lorde‘s song Team by the rock duo Local H which she shared on her website Thirty Roses and I simply had to share it with all y’all here as well. As you may recall, I shared last month video of the Scottish band Chvrches putting their own spin on this Lorde song … but this Local H version is harder, more masculine. I’ve been a fan of Local H since the mid/late-90′s (in fact, one of the last concerts that I saw in Oklahoma when I was in college at OU was Local H at the Bricktown Brewery) but I haven’t listened to them in some time. This cover is a great reminder of how great this band truly is. I’ve always been so impressed with how adept a band made up of 2 people can be. If you like the track, you can download it HERE on iTunes. Much love to Christine for sharing this video. Head over to her site HERE to hear Local H‘s cover of Toxic by Britney Spears :)
