First Dibs: How’s Lorde Breaking From The Ranks Of Her Fellow Pop Stars?

How can you be a part of VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz? What major music news has Queen Latifah just revealed? And where is Drake shooting his next video?

  • Lorde may have quickly grown into one of the biggest pop stars around, but she’s not going to make her fans adopt a “pun-centric” nickname for themselves. We’ll just take it as yet another way she’s setting herself apart from the crowd. [Perez Hilton]
  • VH1’s Super Bowl Blitz is coming at you, with chances all week to win tickets to one of our six pre-game concerts. If you’re in the New York City area, look for our mascot, Iggy the Penguin, between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. at the Manhattan Mall in Herald Square. Take a photo with Iggy, find and follow us via Twitter (@VH1) or Instagram (, and tag your pic using #VH1Blitz. You’ll automatically be in the running to win tickets for J. Cole’s performance at the Kupferberg Center for the Arts, Queens College on Monday, January 27!
  • Queen Latifah may be known more for being on the talk show circuit these days, but she’s still able to drop bombshells about the music business. During an interview, she mentioned that OutKast is actually working on a new album. She would know — she used to be their manager! [NME]
  • It sounds like Drake was able to slyly dip into New York City to film his video for “Wu-Tang Forever,” along with A$AP Rocky. Drizzy reportedly headed to Harlem for the clip, and in the video below, members from Wu-Tang Clan talk about Drake’s track. [MTV News]
