‘Not Myself Tonight’ singer Christina Aguilera was clearly not in the mood to be photographed when spotted treating herself to a Beverly Hills holiday shopping trip this weekend. Joined by boyfriend Matt Rutler, the multi-platinum songstress may not be the best judge of wardrobe but she’s certainly winning reviews from fans for her judging skills on NBC’s blockbuster talent show ‘The Voice’.
Set for its season 2 launch on February 5, the trek will kickoff what will undoubtedly be a busy 2012 for the comeback queen (including a reported new album).
‘O Holy Night’ and ‘Merry Christmas Baby’ are just a few of the Christmas classics fans can expect Lloyd, Monica, Robin Thicke, and Mindless Behavior to share on BET’s 2011 holiday special ‘A Very BET Christmas’. Set for air tonight at 8/7 C, the set will see the R&B stars (and starlets) lend their vocals to many treasured yuletide tunes, and even share a few originals.

Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated collaborations in recent Pop history, Madonna‘s ‘Give Me All Your Love‘ featuring Asian beauties Nicki Minaj and MIA received a promotional boost this week when Minaj tweeted details from it’s video from its set.
Now, Madonna herself has shared her thoughts on the project.
Check out the latest promo shots to come from ‘Grenade‘ belter Bruno Mars.
Shot in black and white, the snaps arrive just days after scored a number of notable accolades on Billboard’s Year End Charts, which included Top Male Hot 100 Artist of the Year and Top Male Radio Songs Artist.
As one of music’s biggest acts, it was only a matter of time before quirky Katy Perry made a return to the Saturday Night Live! stage.
In true SNL form, the ‘Firework’ singer engaged in many a hilarious skit, as well as taking to the main stage to perform.
After being named one of Billboard’s Top Artists of the Year and with her sophomore set ‘Teenage Dream’ being certified Double Platinum after selling 1.9 million in the US alone, Mrs Russell Brand has plenty to laugh about.
Looking at her today, it’s hard believe that people once hailed Britney Spears as the 2nd coming of Janet Jackson. Indeed, although her PR team forged a convient likeness to fellow blonde Madonna, it was clear that Britney’s creative team was reading and applying pages of “Miss Janet” book. And by we mean no shade, rather a nod to her. Ms. Spears used to be one hell of a performer.
Case, point, example: this 2002 performance of ‘Boys’ from her Dream Within A Dream Tour, featuring the mighty Pharrell Williams, also masterminded the track.
Here you’ll see vintage Britney commanding the stage in a way only she could at the start of last decade. The downright ridiculous lip-syncing is offset by some intricate choreography – including a made-for-MTV breakdown – that she manages to execute effortlessly. She oozed a sexiness and a confidence even when simply walking across stage. And of course it doesn’t hurt that the song is a definite winner.
Aged 20 at the time, the ‘Circus’ singer was only 5 years into her recording career and was already performing like a seasoned world class act.
Unfortunately, fast forward 10 years later, Britney is merely a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of her former self, resorting to “armology”, “chairology”, and “wheel-me-around-the-stage-ology”. A sad reality, as her musical efforts continue to qualitatively stay on trend, garnering “hit” status in the process. Had she kept performing with such intensity, she would still have been THE biggest popstar on the planet – by way of undeniable fact and not PR fiction.
As the credits rolled on last night’s X Factor finale, one of the stars the show birthed, Misha B, stepped onto stage at London’s famed G-A-Y.
The singer-rapper, who was initially billed as shoe-in for the final, dusted off her recent elimination to rock the sell-out crowd with renditions of songs she sang on the show. Proving in the process why she is reportedly at the centre of a major label bidding war.
Peep all the action, as well as her introduction by mentor Kelly Rowland, after the jump…
