So last night at the Much Music Awards my timeline was flooding with Miley Cyrus’s name. Sadly iDon’t have MTV 2 so iCouldn’t catch the awards show. Luckily 4 me, iHave Miley Cyrus stans on my friends list (why do iCall it a friends list? when it’s clearly a list of followers as twitter says) provided these pics. iLike Miley Cyrus and iUnderstand what she’s trying do do with her image (she wants people to know that shes not a little girl anymore and that she’s growing up) but maybe she’s trying to hard, or she’s doing something wrong…see for yourself

Lady Gaga covers the July issue of Rolling Stone magazine. By looking at the headline “Lady Gaga Tells All”, I’m sure she’s discussing everything from her having Lupus to her controversial video Alejandro(which has only been out for almost 2 weeks and has over 23 million views on YouTube already). iThink she looks real good here and it’s good to see her with her real hair every now and then. iActually prefer her with her natural do. And yes folks, her ass is very much so photo shopped there…iStill like it.

Leaving Matthew Knowles management and Columbia Records has got to be the best thing that Kelly has done! 1st she gets featured on the Grammy award winning single When Love Takes Over by French Dj David Guetta from his album One Love, then she drafted Jeff Rabham as her new manager and inked a deal with Universal Motown, which is also the home of big name artists such as Lil’Wayne, Busta Rhymes, and Legend Stevie Wonder. If that wasn’t enough, she signed up to record the MTN theme song for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South African, entitled Everywhere You Go, featuring an all-star supergroup of international artists called Rhythm of Africa United. And now she’s now working on her 3rd studio album who’s title has yet to be released. The album is a combination of the urban/pop Destiny’s Child sound and Kelly’s new found love for dance music. Commander was released in May 2010 as an American promotional single and as the international lead single from the project. If that wasn’t enough, She already has the title and cover art work for the next 2 singles Grown Ass Woman and Rose Colored Glasses. iReally think that Kelly actually has a chance to prove that she’s just as good as Beyonce (better if you ask me).
The Rose Colored Glasses Single cover gives me this late 70’s early 80’s vibe. It’s simple and mysterious.
Grown Ass Woman’s single cover gives me straight 70’s. I’m talking Cher/Donna Summers Hair, Diana Ross makeup, and Grace Jones pose technique fierce level 1. iLove it ! ! ! ! ! !

The Pop/Rock/Hip Hop group N.E.R.D is preparing to release their fourth studio album entitled Nothing. The album is set to be released on September 7 of this year and the first single from the album is called Hot N Fun. It features Nelly Furtado. Pictures of the shoot were released online and it seems like it’s set in a dessert in California or Nevada. A teaser clip was released online a few days ago and shows close ups of Pharell and Nelly Furtado, along with alot of women! By looking at the 30 second clip, it seems like they were all on an somewhat exotic/sexabition road trip and get stuck in the dessert, which makes the whole situation, well Hot n Fun. iThink iNeed to add Mr. Williams 2 my list of future ex lovers in my head. i 4got just exactly how much iLike not only him but N.E.R.D. as well. They are very much so underrated 2 me. The trio are as good as artists as they are song writers and producers. Hopefully thins album will at least go gold. Any way, check out the pics, video teaser, and full length song below.

So Mary J Blige has this new artist (the first to be signed to her label Matriarch. Matriarch, is a subsidiary of Interscope records. The singer’s name is Starshell and she is currently working on her debut album. You would think that she was a soul/rnb artist but actually shes a pop/dance artist whose music will blend well with the current songs on theBillboard Hot 100. Starshell’s debut single is entitled Superluva. It’s a contemporary, pop track and it’s kind of layered. While there’s nothing exactly amazing about Superluva, iStill like it. iCan totally see myself and my friends getting boogie to this in the club…or the car.

The numbers are in. While the Glee Casts new album debuts at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Charts with 158,135 copies, and even the Twilight Saga: Eclipsesoundtrack debuted at number 2 with 155,207 copies, Christina Aguilera’s album Bionicdebuts at number 3 with only 111,838 copies. It’s not really that bad but the record company had high expectations for the album. iHad my doubts since the failure of Not Myself Tonightbut iHad to remind myself that Christina has a very loyal fan base. Well obviously that fan base is either taking their time to purchase the album, or they just aren’t feeling it. iMentioned last week during my review that Christina has tried something new and while it’s good to reinvent yourself, it just doesn’t work for her. She gave up her slow mid tempo pop songs for upbeat pop electronica songs that just don’t fit her. The 2nd single Woohoo that features Nicki Minaj has debuted at number 79 on the Hot 100, and it doesn’t seem like it will pass the number 60 mark if u ask me. Christina is really at her best with her ballads. If she releases one of the 5 that she has on her album, not only will it help the album sell, but it will let fans know that she hasn’t reinvented herself much; nevertheless the album will still reach platinum status in due time regardless of how the fans receive the album.

So iWas on YouTube doing my daily Britney Spears session, and 4 some reason, iWanted 2 hear her telephone demo (iDon’t really like it too much but hey its a demo 4 a reason). If you didn’t know, Lady Gaga originally wrote her hit single Telephone that features Beyonce for Britney’s album Circus. But Britney’s management rejected the song and Gaga kept it for herself. I’m glad that they rejected the song for Britney becuase the beat just doesn’t work for her voice. So anyway, iCame across this video on YouTube of Britney, Gaga, and Beyonce singing telephone together as a trio. Whoever did this should be paid because it’s hot. Then it hit me. What if Gaga Britney and Beyonce did a song together? Not only will it be one of the greatest collaborations of the next 10 years, but it’ll be the greatest collboration with 3 of the most groundbreaking women in music on the same song. Check 0ut the Telephone mash-up that was very well put together and judge 4 yourself.
