Move over, “Someone Like You” because there’s a new heart-wrenchingly gorgeous breakup song to make us sob into our morning Cinnamon Toast Crunch (don’t judge). The delicate beauty of indie duo A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” is enough to make us cry, but the incredible success story behind this little-song-that-could is enough to cheer us right back up again.
Ahhh, the double album. It wasn’t always just for greatest hits packages and live releases. Yes, there was a time when these twin-plates were the format of choice for musicians with a lot of material and a lot to say. The results were usually sprawling opuses, packed to the brim with epic tracks. Sure we record buyers had to shell out a little extra cash, but we didn’t care. In fact, we felt spoiled: We were being treated to TWO new records by our favorite artist instead of just one!
The highly anticipated We’re The Millers was released Wednesday, and we’re all thinking the same thing: DAMN Jennifer Aniston makes a hot stripper. In honor of her scantily clad character, let’s take a look at two stripalicious songs: The Pussycat Dolls‘ “Buttons” and Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty.” Read more…
In two weeks’ time, American Idol will crown a new winner and three of the final four ladies in the competition will be losers. At this point in the competition, all of the remaining contestants —Candice Glover, Kree Harrison, Amber Holcomb, and Angie Miller— are capable of winning. They each have a beautiful, big voice. They each have cultivated a distinct “brand” with an eager fan base. And they each have multiple opportunities to mess up big time.
It’s not about the talent anymore. It’s about the song choices.
Beyoncé caused quite an Internet stir yesterday when pictures emerged of her wearing a nipple-baring outfit on her new “Mrs. Carter World Tour” that would make even Joel Schumacher blush. It’s definitely the raciest outfit that she’s ever been spotted in, which got us thinking about where this outfit ranks among the most controversial concert outfits of all-time.
Don’t hate on the lapel pin.
All celebrity women who love to show off their cleavage should not attend Sunday’s 55th Annual Grammy Awards. And there’s no country for the ladies with rotund backsides either. Beyonce, don’t even think about wearing that black leotard; and Christina Aguilera‘s ruffled white
panties booty shorts are out of the question. House rules, ladies.
Miley Cyrus‘s March Cosmopolitan cover story is the interview that keeps on giving. Not only did she reveal two key groups to align yourself with if you want to make it in showbiz (that would be “Brazilians and gays”) and go bra-less on newsstands nationwide, but she finally elaborated on plans for her new album. We’ve seen some Twitter communication between Miley and Odd Future‘s Tyler, the Creator–including a enthusiastic suggestion to “get fat and watch TV”–and now we have proof that this friendly banter may have been born in the booth. Says Miley:
I wrote this song with Mary J. Blige, and Tyler, The Creator heard it and said, “I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.’”And he killed it!
While Tyler isn’t the first artist we’d guess Destiny Hope would call for studio time, but when combined with her performance of “Rebel Yell” and penchant for dropping Twitter truthbombs, we’re liking the diva more and more each day. As we wait for what will be either a head-scratcher of epic proportions or the reinvention of music (not to mention Disney star career paths) entirely, let’s look back at some of the more unexpected, and to be frank, WTF musical collaborations over the years.
