J. Cole‘s single “Power Trip” has become inescapable on the radio, but he continues to showcase how masterful it is when performed live. The rapper performed the track last night (May 21) on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon sans Miguel, who may still be in hiding after that Billboard awards smackdown. Backed by The Roots, Cole gave a simple and laid-back performance.
Cole’s forthcoming sophomore album, Born Sinner, will be released on June 18 — the same day as Kanye West‘s Yeezus. Let the battle of the rap charts begin! More »
Paris Hilton, known in certain circles (like “my friends”) as “the greatest recording artist of all time,” is slated to release her long-anticipated second studio album on Birdman‘s Cash Money Records, produced by Afrojack (her ex!) and featuring collaborators like Lil Wayne. “This is a lot different than my first album,” she said. “It’s really going to be house music.”
At a party at the Hotel du Cap this weekend (where else?), Hilton told showbiz reporter Roger Friedman that the LP should be due out this summer (although she’s been saying that for awhile, so she doesn’t have a ton of credibility at the moment). Reportedly, she’ll lead up to the album release by taking on a residency DJing in Ibiza, because she’s Paris Hilton and that’s just her life. More »

In this very special episode of My Crazy Beautiful Life, Ke$ha drinks her own pee. Remember how you read about that happening not that long ago? Wondering if the context of this episode will explain why? You’re in for a huge disappointment.
For those of you just joining us, this is the fifth piece of the six-part series as part of a documentary chronicling the two years of Ke$ha’s first world tour. As a reminder, her brother, Lagan, is the voice and eyes behind the camera. This episode picks up after Ke$ha’s tour, make-out sesh with a Brazilian Tarzan and post-tour vacation has come to a close, and her new focus is her album Warrior. More »
Did you hear? Kelly Rowland has an album coming out! Yes, the “Kisses Down Low” songstress’ fourth studio album, Talk a Good Game, is finally getting an official release — and last night, the tracklist was unveiled, which is fine timing for the newly announced X Factor judge. A collaboration with Beyonce and Michelle Williams had already been tipped, but there are a few other guests rounding out the roster: Wiz Khalifa, Kevin Cossom, Pusha T and The-Dream. (He’s relegated to a bonus track, but still.)
Game drops June 18, but you can pre-order it on iTunes now; see the full tracklist below. More »
Is Adam Levine just torturing his fans by going shirtless in his new video, but doing it in a sort of weird way where it’s not entirely sexy? Yes! Yes, he probably is.
In the video for Maroon 5‘s new single “Love Somebody” (which might be my favorite single from Overexposed — it’s actually played pretty straight, rather than some overproduced funk-pop monstrosity), Levine uses inverse blue-screen technology (or whatever) with his body (and the body of a sexy model, since it’s Adam Levine) covered in a viscous blue paint-like substance, so only parts of it show up. It’s pretty weird, and kinda cool, and also sort of gross. More »
