With London hosting the Olympic Games 2012, it was only fitting that its grand Closing Ceremony brought with it the grandest girlband of all – the Spice Girls.

Ginger, Scary, Sporty, Baby and Posh rocked the house with a rousing medley of their hits. What are you waiting for? Spice up your…night..after the jump…

“These old b*tches better change their dentures/When I get in the game they gon’ be playin’ the benches”.

Initially billed as a matter of default, it’s clear Nicki Minaj‘s reign over Female Rap is showing no signs of faltering, held in place by her ever in tune fan base and their support of her material- on and off the charts.

Case in point? The UK chart run of her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ which is well on its way to reaching #1 after rising on its Top Ten tally once again.

Rihanna‘s ‘Talk That Talk’ may not have charted that chart in most countries, yet Barbados’ Next Top Model is enjoying finer fortunes with the LP in the UK.

That Rita rise just won’t let up…

For, in a further testament to Roc Nation‘s faith in their newest star Rita Ora, it has been confirmed that the US release of her ‘ORA’ album will be backed by a slot on MTV Unplugged.

Details on the 22 year old’s coveted coup after the jump…

The likes of TLC and Destiny’s Child ensured that the late 90’s/early noughties was the definitive era of “male-bashing”. Indeed, the chart-topping success of ‘No Scrubs’, ‘Bills Bills Bills’, and the like, made it abundantly clear who “ran” the music world at that time.

However, that same window saw R&B singer Nivea score a hit with revised twist on the “relationship” narrative. Flipping the script, she scored herself a winner with this week’s From The Vault pick – anti-homewrecker anthem ‘Don’t Mess With My Man’.

‘Don’t Mess’ saw the pint-sized powerhouse duet with the vocal dynamos of Jagged Edge; it was released in 2002 as the third single from the songbird’s self-titled debut. The track, which managed to hit the US Top 10 but was a minor hit in other territories, ironically remains the singer’s most well-known song on a global scale. Thanks, no doubt, to the 00’s boom of Web 2.0 (see: Youtube and the like).
The sizzling cut – which was helmed by the ever-present Bryan Michael Cox – was accompanied by a glossy video featuring the crew fooling around at a garage and dancing at a parking lot. Although a sassier (or out of the box) concept exploring the lyrics would have been edgier, the clip does a solid job presenting us an artist capable of hitting the notes and busting the all-importan moves.
In recent years, it seems people have been talking more about Ms. Hamilton’s personal life than her music. Unsurprising given her marriage, divorce and army of children with hitmaker The Dream, as well as her child with Lil’Wayne. A fact which is ever-unfortunate considering how solid cuts such as this and her sophomore set ‘Complicated’ were.  Consequently, the songstress ends up in the “underrated” league alongside the likes of Ameriie and Kelis.
Still we’d like to know:
Who do you think are the most underrated R&B artists?

As previously reported, Pop ‘Commander’ Kelly Rowland and Haitian hitmaker Jason Derulo are going Down Under to play ‘dance master’ on Australia‘s new ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ – inspired show ‘Everybody Dance Now’.

Each being renown for offering some of the industry’s most high octane dance moves, the two join forces to captain teams that will compete for prizes of $10,000 nightly and place in the finals to compete for the grand prize of a whopping $250,000!

While we’ve already shown you many-a-promo for the effort, with the show seeing its debut Sunday (August 12) night, find out what the dance masters themselves have to say about the upcoming dance battle royales!

How hot does Tulisa look on the cover The Sunday Times?

Channelling the classy look she sported in her now infamous “tape”, the X Factor judge strikes quite the pose in the issue – which hit newsstands exactly a week before the ITV hit returns to the small screen.

That said, we’re still distracted by the strap-line which christens her a “Teen Icon”. Needless to say, the devil is a liar and so is whoever conjured up that nonsense. Icons (nor any artist deserving of their record contract) don’t perform like this…

After spending the last seven years hosting BET‘s ‘106&Park‘, Terrence J shocked the world when he announced he was to depart the show later on this year, alongside co-host Rocsi Diaz.

Now, after weeks of speculation, it has been reported that he had signed onto present on the E! Network.

According to AlwaysAList.Com, the actor is gearing up to serve as a replacement for long time host Ryan Seacrest, whose ‘American Idol‘ commitments will see him spend less time on the network- which houses seasoned reporter Giuliana Rancic.

They explain:

A source close to the network tells AlwaysAList.com that “they’re very supportive of him pursuing his acting career.”

Ironically, Terrence J’s departure from BET mirrors that of former “106 & Park” host A.J. Calloway.  When Calloway left the show in 2005 he also joined a news magazine show, “Extra!” where he continues to work as a correspondent.

No word on when Terrence J officially starts on “E! News.”  Back in May, he guest-hosted with Rancic and speculation began online that he was in talks with the network.

The normally colorful Katy Perry stuns in this glossy black-and-white set for her ongoing partnership with ‘GHD’ (Good Hair Day).  Going back to black, the ‘Wide Awake’ wailer posed it up for photographer Ellen von Unwerth in a number of settings for the hair care campaign, lending a classic look oft-unseen from the ‘songstress’.

See more below (source):

 

The snaps arrive as the songstress makes more headlines for rumored romance with  John Mayer than music making, but nonetheless the latter is said to be finding its way to stores in the coming month.  The album would come as the follow-up to the singer’s mildly wildly successful ‘Teenage Dream’ – which spawned 5 #1 singles.
