Confession: We just recently hopped on the Jordin Sparks bandwagon after we heard “Battlefield” earlier this summer and then danced around Brooklyn for a month with it blasting on our iPod. Her latest single “S.O.S” is catchy and addictive (it samples that early ’80s classic “Let the Music Play” by Shannon), in that ‘I wanna get down to this all night on repeat’ sorta way. We’re hooked. Anyone wanna have a dance-off?
We just caught the Idol winner’s rehearsal here at BAM and she rocked it. The girl’s got pipes, and she knows how to use ‘em. Not to mention, she’s completely adorable. We told you we were on the J-Sparks bandwagon! Check out a sneak peak of Jordin rehearsing this morning, workin’ it way before noon. No Diva hours for her! She’s a total professional.

Let’s just get real here people: Miley Cyrus has the summer jam of 2009 in her pocket, and the 16-year-old starlet may or may not be belting it out in a few short hours here at VH1 Divas. Lucky for you we’ve got a clip of her rehearsal that just went down, and we suspect it holds the answer. Give it a watch and get ready to swoon!
We were lucky enough to witness Miley doin’ her thing onstage, and she was all energy and smiles. Kinda crazy, seeing as she just did a show in Tacoma, Washington last night (her tour just started on Monday), but the girl’s clearly got it under control. She sounded stellar, and kicked back on stage in a black romper, black boots and a button down. For more Miley, tune in to VH1 Divas tonight at 9PM EST and participate in our Divas Live Blog Party right now!
La Lohan never ceases to amaze us. Yesterday we reported that she and Taylor Momsen were getting chummy at a fashion show earlier this week, and now comes the rumor that when Lindsay showed up to the G-Star runway show with her sister Ali and some pals, she actually tried to move Momsen’s seating card to accommodate her own crew. Not such good pals anymore, it seems. She also started tossing around the seating cards of Juliette Lewis and Christian Siriano, until the event producers tried to stop her, at which point she yelled at them “Don’t f*cking touch me!”. Lohan also allegedly put up a fuss when she had to pose for pictures and chat with the press ’cause that’s, like, work and stuff. [Source: NY Post; Photo: Getty Images]
The FABlife is teaming up with PopEater, The Huffington Post, Jezebel, LOGO and YOU to live blog VH1 Divas, airing live tonight at 9PM EST. Hosted by the always-entertaining and recently job-seeking Paula Abdul (word on the street: she’s also performing!), the show features performances by divas Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Jordin Sparks, Leona Lewis and Adele. But the Divas aren’t the only highlight of the show. They’re pairing up with an all-star lineup, including Stevie Wonder (Yes, a man can be a diva too!), Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Martina McBride and Cyndi Lauper. Comment in our Divas Live Blog Party now and stay with us while we break down the red carpet (7:30PM EST), and last but not least, the show itself (9PM EST)!
It’s been a while since we’ve seen Charlize Theron on the red carpet, but when she stepped out last night for the premiere of her new film The Burning Plain, she looked amazing. We think that electric blue dress looks beautiful against her hair and red lips. So, ok, the film didn’t have an official red carpet, but even when she’s walking through some questionable, vomit-like green garbage, she looks stunning. [Photo: Splash News Online]
One of the highlights of our day was getting to hang with Adele. We chatted with the Brit about her super-fast rise to stardom and checked out pics of her new puppy on her Blackberry (he was left at home as he’s still too young to travel). The singer is relatively new to fame; she hit it big – nay, HUGE – with her album 19, won a ton of critical acclaim, and snagged a couple of Grammys along the way. No big deal, right?
Adele’s only 21, but she assured us that’s she’s been doin’ the diva thing long before she became a household name. “I was doin’ it way before I won a Grammy,” she tells us, explaining, “If it has to do with my career and I want something and it’s not happening, I get annoyed.”
But being a diva isn’t about being crazy demanding, says the singer. “I think being a diva is also about being nice and knowing how to work with people, and how to treat your fans. That’s very important.”
We can attest that the girl’s got the nice thing down, as she was super cool to us. Watch our entire interview with Adele above and check out pics of her pup on her Myspace page. Be sure to tune in to VH1 Divas tomorrow at 9PM EST and check back here to participate in our Divas Live Blog Party.
We were lucky enough to watch Kelly Clarkson rehearse for “VH1 Divas” today at BAM, and we were totally floored by what we saw. Literally. We fell on the floor. The down-to-earth diva belted out a song off her new album (peep the clip to figure out the tune) and sounded absolutely amazing. If her rehearsal is any indication, she’s gonna be on fire tomorrow night. And we’ll end up back on the floor.
Tune in to VH1 Divas tomorrow at 9PM EST and check back here to participate in our Divas Live Blog Party.
We caught Paula Abdul rehearsing her opening number for VH1 Divas, let us be the first to say it: she’s still got it. With all the buzz surrounding Abdul it’s easy to forget that her roots are in dance, but watch one second of her onstage and it all comes rushing back. Her moves are sick, and she breezed through the routine effortlessly while looking chic in all black. Get ready to get down to all your favorite Paula songs tomorrow night; you can even dance along with her in your living room, if you can keep up, natch. Two steps forward, two steps back – you know the drill, right?
Watch Divas tomorrow on VH1 at 9PM EST and check back here for our Divas Live Blog Party.
Last week, we asked you to dig in our Divas Vault and tell us what your favorite classic Divas performances are. Well, you told us all right and it mostly sounded like this: “Mariah! Mariah! Mariah!” We knew she had some loyal fans, but damn — we had no idea that our little countdown would turn into a bloodbath. Mariah’s peers officially have been diva-stated.
Below, are the Top 10 classic Divas performances by readers’ votes. Not to spoil it or anything, but take a wild guess on which diva is occupying not just the top, not just the Top 2, but the Top 3 slots…
