The finale of ‘The Voice’ season 4 went down last night (June 18th) and when it was all said and done, Country singer Danielle Bradbery, 16, won the season with the mentorship of coach Blake Shelton. This is the third time in a row that a member of Shelton’s team has won.
Apart from the winner of ‘The Voice’ being announced, last night’s show also featured performances from Christina Aguilera, Pitbull, Bruno Mars and Cher. These acts performed ‘Feel This Moment’ and ‘Treasure’ respectively. Meanwhile, Cher went full diva and premiered her new single ‘A Woman’s World,’ closing the show. The uptempo track left us dancing and it was a fantastic way to end the show.
Kelly Rowland’s highly-anticipated album ‘Talk A Good Game’ went public yesterday and this morning (June 19th), the singer visited ‘Good Morning America’ to promote the LP with a live performance of ‘Street Life’ with Pusha T and preview her new video for ‘Dirty Laundry.’
The ‘Dirty Laundry’ clip was directed by Sarah McColgan and offers a look into the singer’s most traumatic relationship. During her interview on the show, she said that the clip is extremely emotional and sums up everything that she has faced over the past ten years. It’s sure to be the most personal clip that she has ever made.
Mariah Carey is done with ‘American Idol’ and now she’s ready to enter her new era with a brand new album titled ‘The Art Of Letting Go.’ The title of the LP went public after Jermaine Dupri wrote on his blog: “The Art of Letting Go. The new album will be available for all the lambs on July 23.”
“Melancholic moment letting go of something this personal to me yet I couldn’t be more excited to give three years of my soul to the fans,” she said, explaining the title of the album.
Every artist wants to make 2013 his/her year and Drake is one of them. Just hours ago, the OVO rapper announced his 41-city ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ tour that kicks off in fall.
Running for two months, the jaunt kicks off on September 25th in Portland, Oregon and ends on November 25th in Los Angeles. The tour will see Drake performing at numerous venues across the U.S. and Canada.
The ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ tour also features Miguel and Future as Drake’s supporting guests, so you know that this can’t be missed. From hip-hop to R&B, Drake has got you all covered! He’s even promised additional special guests on particular dates.
With the hit single ‘Started From The Bottom’ currently in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, Drake plans to maximise the hype for his new album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ out this fall.
That said, tickets will be available on Ticketmaster.com starting June 21st.
Listen To Britney Spears’ ‘Ooh La La’ From ‘The Smurfs 2’ Soundtrack, Says Kids Are To Appear In Music Video0
Britney Spears’ tune ‘Ooh La La’ from ‘The Smurfs 2’ soundtrack was released in HQ today and we’ve been reminded just how amazing of a song it is. With an infectious pop beat boasting electro influences and an addictive auto-tuned bridge, the song remains G-rated and all around loveable.
In a chat with Ryan Seacrest, Brit said, “It’s definitely straight-up pop… it has a young feel to it. But the main reason why I did it was because [of] my boys. They’re obsessed with the Smurfs. We’ve seen ‘The Smurfs’ movie a million trillion times and they were told they could be in the video and all this cool stuff, so that’s the reason why I did it.”
She brought her kids on set of the video and they were very well behaved. “They were, like, acting, and my oldest son Preston was right on cue every time they would tell him to do something,” Spears said. “They play themselves … [but when] we did the actual shoot of the video I didn’t see [them]. I was in hair and makeup, so later on I got to see what they actually did on camera and it was adorable.”
Leonardo DiCaprio was the perfect character in ‘The Great Gatsby’ and he’s nabbed yet another interesting role in the Martin Scorcese-directed drama ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ The trailer was just released to the public and apart from featuring Kanye West’s ‘Black Skinhead’ from his upcoming album ‘Yeezus,’ we also see DiCaprio taking debauchery to a new level.
“My name is Jordan Belfort, the year I turned 26, I made 49 million dollars, which really pissed me off because it was three shy of a million a week,” says DiCaprio’s character in a voice-over that opens the trailer.
Chris Brown caused quite a stir when he announced that he would be releasing a track with the late Aaliyah but he completely ignored the negative comments and hours ago saw the singer release both the track and video for ‘Don’t Think They Know.’
The clip opens with a quote where he refers to himself not as Chris Brown, but Christopher. “Unity is what we are afraid of so fear is insanity, lets love each other.” It soon disappears and the catchy beat kicks in to footage of Brown in the streets of Compton claiming that he was able to end the rivalry between the Los Angeles Crip and Blood gangs.
The Carters are taking over. Beyoncé is readying her highly anticipated album, out sometime soon and hours ago during the NBA Finals Game 5 (Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs), her hubby Jay-Z gave rap fans yet another reason to rejoice with the announcement of his album ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail,’ out July 4th.
In a three minute Samsung ad, Jay-Z is seen in the studio with fellow masterminds Rick Rubin, Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. “We don’t have any rules, everybody is trying to figure it out,” he says. “That’s why the Internet is like the Wild West. The Wild Wild West. We need to write the new rules.”
