Lea Michele’s working weekend

Yesterday, Lea Michele tweeted that she was rehearsing for her first live performance of her single, “which is happening very soon.” Today, she threw some sneak peeks out on Instagram which showed the singer/actress in the middle of shooting the music video. All this prep and still no title? Or dates to count down to? Come on Lea, give us something!


Her solo album is due in 2014. So far all we know about it is that it includes a track dedicated to Cory Monteith entitled, “You’re Mine.”


Get. Excited.

Miley Bares Her Soul (and a LOT of Skin)


We’ve all heard “Wrecking Ball” by now, the second track released from Miley’s upcoming “Bangerz” album. When I first heard it, I was hopeful that the twerker formally known as Hannah was about to show us that she’s got more to offer than gratuitous nudity and a general “IDGAF” attitude. Should’ve known better. Continue reading

See Katy ‘ROAR’ + PRISM Updates

Katy’s on a roar, er, roll! The pop star’s new song just became her eighth single to top the Billboard Hot 100!

I finally got a chance to watch Katy ‘ROAR‘ last night and although the air-brushing and fake tan was a little distracting, the whole time I couldn’t help thinking, “God, she’s gorgeous.” Our lovely glamazon survived a plane crash, took on a tiger, and became queen of the jungle in this bright and colorful video (released Thursday) that brought her triumphant new single to life.

Watch it below:

In other Katy news, she recently showed off the official album cover for PRISM, during a Good Morning America appearance early Friday morning: Continue reading

Does Gaga’s video deserve ‘Applause?’

Lady Gaga’s music videos are like hallucination-induced short films. I know music is an interpretation, but half the time I feel like I’ve got a “WTF?” face the whole time I’m watching. Applause was released Monday the 19th and apparently it’s chock-full of cultural references—an ambitious BuzzFeed staffer broke it down:

“The curtain opened Monday on the video for “Applause,” Lady Gaga’s first single in almost two years. And she’s right back at it, putting out a video rich with various influences and symbolism-overload, though this time it clocks in at a reasonable 3:36 instead of the nine-minute video epics we were growing accustomed to from her. “Applause” was directed by famed fashion photographer duo (and previous Gaga collaborators) Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin.

The video is visually stunning, but it can also get confusing, with references to Greek mythology, German expressionist horror films, Hindu goddesses, and callbacks to previous Gaga videos. We’re here to help break it all down for you.”
