Beginning with her inflated-trash-bag-wearing debut in “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” to her Grammy Award winning “Lose Control,” Missy Elliott‘s collection of videos are nothing short of eye-bulging brilliance. And while we haven’t seen a clip from hip-hop’s funkiest diva in a minute – Miss E. will reunite with Lil’ Kim and Da Brat tonight at the Soul Trail Awards to perform their platinum selling 1997 hit “Not Tonight.”
Britney Spears was and always will be American’s Sweetheart. A Southern bell that sang and danced the way to our hearts while provided us with some of pop’s greatest anthems. In this 2003 interview, you can see how Brit remains humble and hasn’t let fame change her a bit. But don’t let the sweet exterior fool you. There’s a reason she has risen to the top and been argued as the Queen of Pop. “When I was little, I was so determined. Whatever I set my mind to, I was gonna do it.”
Former You Oughta Know artist JOHNNYSWIM is celebrating Christmas early this year with their brand new JOHNNYSWIM Christmas EP set for release November 10th. The complete EP is loaded with five holiday classics plus their single “Christmas Day”, which can be streamed right now on Paste.
Little Big Town joined Pop Princess Ariana Grande on stage to perform “Bang Bang” during last night’s Country Music Awards and we can all just agree it was kind of weird. Not to discriminate because, yes, Ariana is extremely talented, but… she’s not a country singer. So there’s that.
While the votes continue to roll in, we’re closer to determining who is the ultimate Queen of Pop. And while Pop Stars are known to be shady as hell, you’d be surprised to know that not all of them are. Let us introduce to you a special breed: the Diva. Shade is the Pop Diva’s second language. It’s Beyoncé coughing. It’s Madonna taking a slow sip of tea. It’s Whitney and Mariah not giving a flying f–k. Bet you’ve never seen Britney throwing these verbal knives!
Lorde just released her new music video for “Yellow Flicker Beat”, the first single off of the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack. The complete track list includes songs from Kanye West, Tove Lo, CHVRCHES, Tinashe and more.
If YOK artist Sam Smith wasn’t singing hit songs like “Stay With Me”, he’d be a florist in Italy. But as fate would have it, Smith stuck to singing and we can thank him for inspiring Nick Jonas, Ed Sheeran, Miranda Lambert and other celebrities to sing these heavenly covers of “Stay With Me”. Cover queen Kelly Clarkson may have started this trend but these singers can definitely hold their own.
