While ‘Epic’ X Factor US alum Marcus Canty is winning fans over left and right with his debut offerings, the season 1 champion of the show Melanie Amaro (also signed to EPIC) unveils her long-awaited, official debut single ‘Long Distance’.

Set to kick off her debut LP ‘Truly’ (2013), find out below if the song has truly been worth the wait…


Despite being out of the spotlight for some time, rest assured there’s no need to ask ‘Where You At’ to Grammy winning powerhouse Jennifer Hudson as she can be found on the cover of the latest ‘Lucky’ magazine.

While fans await her forthcoming album, said to feature heavy production from electropop producer Redone, the singer can be found alongside fellow ‘American Idol’ alum Katharine McPhee on season 2 of NBC’s ‘Smash’ (Feb. 5th).

Until then, see the behind the scenes action of her ‘Lucky’ photo shoot below (as reported by our sisters at SheIsDiva):


In a bid to avoid the dreaded sophomore slump, Ke$ha has been aggressively promoting her new album ‘Warrior’. Indeed, the rap-singer’s campaign has seen her touch many a stage in support of the set, which arrived in stores this week and was preceded by chart smash ‘Die Young’.

And while today brought with it another performance on the ‘Conan O’Brien Show’, it also ushered in the first week sales predictions for what many have earmarked one of the year’s biggest Pop releases.

So what is is ‘Warrior’ on course to sell? The answer (and Conan performance) await after the jump…


She’s Pop’s fastest rising starlet, but before dominating the charts with her brand of stylized Rock Pop, Rita Ora was an aspiring entertainer growing up in the affluent neighbourhood of Ladbroke Grove, West London.

Starring in 2004’s Brit flick ‘Spivs’ aged just 14, it would be four more years before she caught the eye of Rihanna creators Jay Z & Jay Brown, who signed her to the force that is Roc Nation.

So, with her star rising with every #1 single she scores, she opened up on her childhood with CBBC’s ’12 Again’, detailing what she describes as a ‘tomboyish’ past and her admiration of Beyonce‘s 2003 smash hit, ‘Crazy In Love‘.

Her story below…


Rita Ora helps Adidas get into the festive mood this week, starring in their Snoop Dogg fronted ‘The Cautionary Tale Of Ebenezer 2012′.

For many a Pop fiend, Usher‘s 18 year chart reign has made him an ever present/welcome force in the world of music- just as influential today as he was upon the launch of his self titled debut.

Now, in what is a testament to his ability to both spot and craft a hit, his smash hit single ‘Climax’ has been named the Top Song of 2012 by ‘Time’ Magazine.

Details below…


“Sell outs”.

Ask hip hop’s reigning highnesses – Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, and Nicki Minaj – and they can attest to being titled such at some point in their illustrious careers (the latter more than her rap predecessors).

Indeed, in the heavily male-dominated genre of rap, trying to “hang with the boys” has either constituted hypermasculinization or explicitly detailing bedroom antics.  Either way, rap’s estrogenic entities have had to take the extreme route often to little notoriety…


Fresh from rocking The X Factor UK stage at the weekend, Pop rebel Pink stopped by BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge today to continue the promotional push for new album ‘The Truth About Love’.

As one third of Brit trio ‘NDubz’, ‘Sight Of You’ star Tulisa enjoyed three UK Top Ten albums and an impressive 7 Top Ten singles- catapulting the band to the forefront of the market’s Pop scene.

However, since parting ways with the group and joining ITV’s ‘X Factor UK‘, the singer’s public image and the career built around it has failed to live up to expectations-  despite the benefit of the show’s ratings and notoriety

Now, following the failure that was her second single ‘Live It Up’, her brand is on course to crash and burn once again. This time, via her debut album, ‘The Female Boss’.

Bad news below…


Festive diva Mariah Carey continued to live up to her billing on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon early this morning.

Making a surprise appearance on the show, the 42 year old turned in a unique rendition of her Holiday classic ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – backed by host Fallon, house-band The Roots, and a choir of children, all of which used classroom instruments.

Confused? Think Christina Aguilera‘s similarly-themed “performance” of ‘Your Body’ last month.

How did Mariah fare? The answer awaits after the jump…
