Vocal sensation Ariana Grande lived up to her billing tonight at the 2013 MTV Video music Awards. The 20-year-old was tapped to perform at the pre-show of the show’s 30th anniversary, thrilling the millions watching with a medley of breakout hit ‘The Way’ and current single ‘Baby I’.

Check out Ms. Grande in action after the jump….

It’s more than official!

After rocking the industry with news of their reunion early this morning, Pop divas Danity Kane followed-up with another major  announcement as they arrived at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards tonight.

18 hours ago, ‘Show Stopper’ singers Danity Kane probably stopped a few hearts when they confirmed their highly anticipated return with a glossy promo shot (seen above).

Later teasing an announcement regarding their reunion (to come in just a few moments during tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards), the news was also accompanied with rumor that the ladies – Aundrea, Aubrey, Shannon, and Dawn – would not be joined by the group’s original fifth member D. Woods.

Now, Woods has spoken out to clear up the confusion…


The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards are finally upon us!

Airing live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, the 30th anniversary of the Pop culture staple is being tipped as one the biggest yet. With performances from the likes of Lady GaGa, Justin Timberlake, and Katy Perry, tonight’s show is poised to be a must-see.

Naturally, another unmissable facet of this year’s spectacle is the red carpet. Watch the live stream below and let us know who got it right and who looked a fright!


It appears there’s no mopping up the bad blood between Pink and rival Christina Aguilera.

For, while Xtina has maintained a relative silence about her views on her outspoken label-mate, “political correctness” has never been on Pink’s agenda — especially when it comes to the ‘Your Body’ belter.

Case, point, during a recent concert in Australia.

Mid-song, the ‘So What’ singer momentarily lost control of her voice — referring the slip-up as “sounding like Christina Aguilera”. Meow, much?!

Watch the clip after the jump…


“You ain’t never ever, never ever seen a girl like me, D-A-N-I-T-Y-K-A-N-E”

Color us excited for tonight’s VMA’s festivities; for not only are a plethora of our favorite acts taking center stage, but it will also  usher in the official return of multi-Platinum divas Danity Kane.

Indeed, as reported this morning, MTV’s Angels are back with a vengeance (#Rage).

To celebrate their vindication, we’re taking it all the way back to the beginning through this week’s From The Vault.
The ladies Genesis effort ‘Showstopper’ is today’s pick.

The Jim Jonsin produced jam was the lead single from the Making The Band alumni’s eponymous debut and featured label-mate Yung Joc as guest rapper. In a probable bid to capitalize on their Diddy/BadBoy affiliation, Team DK opted for a grittier, more Urban sound resulting in this slightly tongue-in-cheek song about automobiles.

Obviously, such decision paid off as the track went on to reach the 8th position on the Billboard Hot 100 after debuting at #17 and was an iTunes #2 single only days after its release.

The Jesse Terrero directed video saw the band “in a car, riding slow” or put simply “showstoppin” through the streets of Los Angeles and performing in the middle of a closed-down Hollywood Boulevard. Although the intro tastes a bit too “Girlband 101” forus, it doesn’t take away from the core of the clip that testified of the charisma each member had. Juniors they may have been, but they clearly already knew how to “work the camera” from the onset.


The ‘Lights Out’ belle are looking better than ever and we can’t wait to hear how their vocals blend together in 2013, especially after inspecting their respective evolution via solo endeavors. Even though we would have been ecstatic to see D.Woods as a part of the line-up (there’s still some hope…), we love that the girls and their team seem to make all the right moves. From a slot at tonight’s VMA’s as well as reuniting with Johnny Wright to their (almost confirmed) 51 Minds reality show, we feel like this is the perfect set-up to bring back into the spotlight the most talented female group that graced the industry in the last 10 years.

Welcome Back To The Dollhouse, divas!

Peep the official artwork for ‘Bangerz‘, the Hip Hop driven new album from Miley Cyrus!

Released as the album became available for pre-order, the 80s inspired cover arrives well before the project’s October 7th arrival, and shortly before the performer arrives at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards to perform her smash hit single ‘We Can’t Stop‘.

So, let us know…

Hard to believe that today marks the 12th anniversary of the untimely passing of R&B starlet Aaliyah.

Introduced as R&B ringleader R. Kelly‘s protege at the young age of 14, the Detroit native precedented an R&B teen movement, leading the way for fellow female divas-in-training Brandy and Monica to share chart success.  By the time she reached sweet 17, the ‘Hot Like Fire’ hitmaker’s rise to prominence was imminent as she turned up the heat in her videos and on the charts.  With then-little-known super-producer team Timbaland and Missy Elliott at the helm lacing the accompaniment for her angelic falsetto, Aaliyah found herself in a league of her own with substance, sass, and style.

Fast forward to 2001 (after a 5 year absence from album charts), the songstress was returning with her self-titled third album.  To promote the July 2001 due album, Haughton hit the ground running in a progressive promo campaign including a stop on the then-popular MTV documentary series ‘MTV Diary’.  Showcasing its release, promotional tour, and, of course, downtime in between, the outing gave a glimpse into an otherwise fairly private star.  Gone were the shades, baggy jeans, and laidback demeanor.  Replaced with a grown and sexy Aaliyah, fans were being introduced to the beginning of what was hoped to be her true rise to prominence.

Unfortunately, that beginning was struck tragically short upon the singer’s death on August 25th, 2001.  But, as this very article attests, her legacy is all but forgotten and continues to inspire those left to follow her Urban Pop trail.  There will never be another, for, she was truly ‘one in a million’.

On the 12th anniversary of Aaliyah‘s death, tonight will see one her more loyal supporters Drake perform at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards!

Hitting the stage to perform two numbers from his forthcoming album ‘Nothing Was The Same’, last night saw the ‘Lonely’ entertainer tease the showing during an interview with MTV, revealing that fans could an expect something…. explosive.

Watch below…


 ‘Touch di Road’ vocalist Mavado calls on Rap’s brightest star to complete his brand new single ‘Give it all to me’ today!

We’re talking about Nicki Minaj of course, who lands on the Ja Productions beat three years after she ventured into similar territory with her ground breaking remix of Gyptian‘s ‘Hold You‘.

How does she fare this time around?

You tell us, below…



Miley Cyrus is in the giving mood again!

For, just hours before she rocks the MTV Video Music Awards live from Brooklyn, New York, the would be wild child treats fans to a brand new song from her new album, named ‘Wrecking Ball‘.

A far cry from its predecessor ‘We Can’t Stop‘, ‘Ball’ packs emotion from top to bottom, and is so impressive we’re sure it’ll help push the pre-order sales for its supporting LP ‘Bangerz’  in the days to follow.

Meet the smash below…
