Let’s be real with ourselves for a minute— “Bang Bang” is probably the greatest pop tracks of the year (if not of all time). So the energy was already running high when Jessie J belted those first high notes during a concert in San Jose last night. But the singer took things to a different level when she brought out Demi Lovato to take Ariana Grande‘s verse on the hit song.

There’s nothing more exciting than seeing two of your favorite singers come together for a duet, and we’ve been lucky enough to experience some pretty fantastic ones. But we still can keep on dreaming, and the possibilities are endless with the amount of incredible artists out there. We decided to play musical matchmaker and dream up 10 collaborations that would make the world cry, rage and end all its problems. And yes, Beyoncé is involved.
Fergie of Black Eyed Peas drops a new song after an eight-year hiatus, Adam Levine has a bloody make out session in his new “Animal” video, Queen and Adam Lambert announce more tour dates and more on Last Lap.
We’re pretty bummed about the summer being over and all, but at least there’s one silver lining: we get to crown a winner of VH1′s Battle Of The Summer Jams! It’s been an incredible season for music, and since Memorial Day we’ve had artists like Iggy Izalea, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and Nico & Vinz go head to head for summer song supremacy. But now the time has come to announce the winner. Can we get a drumroll please?
The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards took over television last night, and the stars stepped out dressed to impress. In addition to crying over the Carter family and twerking along to Nicki Minaj there were plenty of moments to be savored behind the scenes. Luckily, the celebs didn’t leave their phones at home.
Last week on VH1 was all about girl power. Taylor Swift made our Yas Girl of the week, Nicki Minaj‘s record breaking video for “Anaconda” crowned Drake the luckiest man alive, Meghan Trainor spoke all about that bass and more.
The Battle of the Summer Jams is drawing to a close. Over the past three months we had you vote on your favorite songs in head-to-head battles each Friday. During the course of each battle, there were many surprises as Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, and Magic! all lost their respective rounds. But we gave the losers one more chance at the finals with the Redemption Round. With nearly 32 percent of the vote, “Rude” by Magic! made its way back into the final round. It will face off against previous winners, such as Becky G, Demi Lovato, and Iggy Azalea.
Pop princess Demi Lovato has the voice of an angel and the cutest dimples we ever did see. Looks, however, can be deceiving. Don’t let the former Disney darling status fool you, because this 22-year-old has a lot to say, and she’s has no shame in letting it all out. We know that Demi has a reputation for not taking anyone’s crap, and lately she’s been proving more than ever that she really doesn’t care.
