It’s finally here!
Today, following countless teasers from its visual, ‘Settle Down’ by No Doubt touched down online and awaits your first listen below.
While a team of writers whip up her seventh studio album for her, Rihanna journeyed to Sardinia yesterday for another leg of her Summer vacation.
Caught taking a jet to the location with her entourage, the belter was then snapped enjoying downtime on yacht upon arrival, snapped with a mystery man far too aware of onlooking paparrazo.
With a career spanning almost two decades, it is impossible to deny the impact Brooklyn’s finest Lil Kim has made on both Hip Hop and – to a degree- Pop culture.
Launching the well received ‘Return Of The Queen Tour‘ two months ago, the last few years have seen the Rapper reboot her career successfully- following a nasty spat with Rap mogul Nicki Minaj.
However, despite her efforts to appease her ever growing fan base, they have attacked her- accusing her of putting her new boyfriend ‘Mr Papers’ before her career.
As previously reported, reality talent show juggernaut ‘American Idol’ recently bid adieu to two of its judges – Steven Tyler & Jennifer Lopez. Now, reports circulate that the ‘Ain’t It Funny’ songstress’s exit from ‘Idol’ was everything but a laughing matter, as her demands for an increase in pay led to an unceremonious ousting.
Amidst falling ratings and steeper competition (see: ‘The Voice’, ‘X Factor USA’), the FOX fan favorite is looking to employ a star who probably fits a bit more comfortably into their budget. And, given some of the names allegedly in talks to take up Lopez’s vacant chair on the judging panel, possibly for once someone who can actually sing may be put in place.
Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey, and Celine Dion are just a few names at the front of the race. Additionally, given the boost afforded to Lopez’s career during her stint on the show, it’s safe to say the aforementioned would appreciate the same. Or, given Britney Spears (X Factor) and Christina Aguilera‘s (The Voice) inclusions on ‘Idol’s’ fiercest competitors, should FOX executives look for someone younger and more current?
You tell us: Who (among these and more) should replace Steven Tyler & Jennifer Lopez on ‘American Idol’?
Professional poser Cassie lived up to her billing last night in Las Vegas.
The starlet, whose sophomore set ‘King of Hearts’ lacks a palpable pulse, smiled and sashayed as hosted a private gala at LAVO nightclub – embracing her model reality.
For the few hanging on for new material, the Bad Boy beauty is working on a new mixtape tentatively titled ‘Rock-A-Bye Baby’. Another classic, no doubt.

It seems that despite efforts to downplay her commercial prowess, Nicki Minaj just keeps on winning.
The proud maestra of the Multi-Platinum LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘, the last few months have seen the Rapper enjoy the fruits of her well publicized labor, scoring lucrative deals with Pepsi Co,
Giuseppe Zanotti and MAC.
Now find out why Minaj has even more to smile about this week, below…
As showcased with Drake and Adele’s respective recent LP , performers who front material-centered album campaigns can always expect to reap the rewards commercially.
Now, it is Frank Ocean‘s turn to experience enjoy the aforementioned rewards. For, as a result of Adult Contemporary sound and the success of his 2011 mix tape ‘Nostalgia’, his debut album ‘Channel Orange’ has soared on the UK Album chart.
Never one to shy away from controversy, Madonna‘s outspoken approach to many a social issue has at times worked both for her and against her.
For, while receiving praise for her visual commentary on interracial relationships in 1989’s ‘Like A Prayer’ , the same clip came under fire from the Vatican who labeled the clip ‘blasphemous’ for its unique take on religious symbolism.
This week, she has landed herself in hot water with the French political group the ‘National Front’, who have threatened to sue her for imagery showcased on her latest tour.
Responsible for penning Keyshia Cole‘s ‘Enough Of No Love‘, Def Jam’s Elijah Blake is fast becoming one of the label’s more promising acts.
