Miley Cyrus turned heads as she arrived at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night (May 19), dressed in a jumpsuit that looked like it had been fashioned together from the remains of an old Sexy Jester Halloween Costume and a few of Grandma Cyrus’ doilies. The Balmain-designed one piece was a far different style choice from the sexy white business suit-esque look Disney’s best twerker sported just a year ago (back when her hair was much, much longer than Liam’s). Regardless of whether Miley’s ensemble is your cup of tea, the pop star completed the look with the ultimate accessory: unwavering confidence. More »
Well! It’s the Billboard Music Awards tonight, which features majorly star-studded performance from some great artists, and some ones you don’t care about at all, and a lot of inexplicable appearances from the stars of ABC sitcoms you’ve never watched! Oh, what a wonderful party it is.
We’ll be updating the list throughout the night, so stay close to see who’s taking home the big awards. More »
Selena Gomez did not disappoint as she stepped out onto the blue carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday night (May 19). Sel’s white cut-out gown with neon accents was a complete departure from her 2012 BBMA black gown — except in one area: the girl still looked stunning. We imagine it was quite a task for the pop star to find a dress that would manage to make Selenators smile and while still bringing ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber (also in attendance tonight) to tears…again.

Kelly Rowland will soon Talk a Good Game as an X Factor judge, if all goes according to plan. Entertainment Weekly reports that Rowland is “firming up a deal” to help replace Britney Spears and LA Reid, to appear with returning judges Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato.
To her advantage, Rowland holds prior experience on The X Factor, albeit the U.K. version. As her fellow Season 8 judges poked fun at her Houston-bred critiques (her retort: “I’m a Southern girl, y’all isn’t going anywhere”), Rowland was warm and enthusiastic. One of her best lines was directed at a contestant who confessed she felt insecure of her weight. More »
Chris Brown has released a snippet to “They Don’t Know,” the X single that samples previously unreleased vocals from the late Aaliyah. Based on the preview, Brown doesn’t deviate far from its source material.
“They Don’t Know” borrows from Digital Black‘s “Don’t Think They Know,” from his 2008 album Memoirs of an R&B Thug. Digital Black was one of three members in ’90s R&B group Playa, whose members (Static Major especially) worked with Aaliyah in addition to Ginuwine, Missy Elliott and Jo Jo. Timbaland had also produced Playa’s 1998 debut, Cheers 2 U. Hear Brown’s take after the jump. More »
Drake‘s found yet another reason to thank Jay-Z later. As reported last night, he hit the studio with the Roc Nation CEO for their first collaboration since “Light Up,” off his 2010 debut. “Warning: Please be very afraid of the music we’re working on. OVO x ROCNATION,” a Roc Nation photographer posted to Instagram.
In the Thank Me Later track, Drake rapped of how his friends were partying, but he was making the music they party to — “I got these new rappers nervous / prom night, n—-” — before a pissed-off Jay warned him of how fame can turn ugly: “Not as cool of a n— as I once was, these bright lights turned me to a monster.” Revisit the track after the jump.
