Not only does his debut solo album, Mind of Mine, drop today but Zayn Malik also premiered a new music video. It’s for early LP standout, “BeFoUr” which I previously sang the praises of, minus the annoying upper cap styling of the title.

The accompanying clip is a laid-back affair. It shows Malik paling around with his pals in Manchester, England. The 23-year-old gives a glimpse into a day of his life. From cruising with his boys to getting his hair trimmed, the former One Direction singer is just your everyday dude. He even ends his day with some deep fried goodness. Check out the clip below.

His new era has officially begun and it’s off to a great start. The day after revealing his new album’s title, Last Year Was Complicated, Nick Jonas shares the lead track which features the talented Tove Lo.

Never would’ve pictured these two together but it works. “Close” marries both their sounds perfectly. I’m obsessed with the steelpan intro. In a series of tweets, the 23-year-old Kingdom actor reveals the track is “about how I literally can’t open up and be vulnerable with someone..”

The accompanying visual, directed by Tim Erem, definitely conveys that sentiment. Both Jonas and Lo sit facing each other with their chairs being pushed and pulled throughout the clip. Along the way, their clothes fly off, leaving them with only nude-colored items on. It’s a very sultry video which ends with Tove straddling Nick. Lucky bitch 😉

“This music video is gonna require a few cold showers afterwords…,” tweeted Jonas. Check it out below.

The end is almost here. American Idol bids adieu in just a couple of weeks. Hopefully, the network plans to send the show off in style. After all, the singing competition did chance the face of television.

FOX begins the three-night extravaganza with a 90-minute retrospective titled American Idol: American Dream on Tuesday, April 5. It’ll feature Ryan Seacrest, judges including Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and more, along with alums walking down memory lane to share their personal memories and tell never-before revealed stories.

The two-night finale then starts on April 6 with the show crowning its final Idol on April 7 live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The big Thursday show will feature group and solo performances from a whackload of former contestants including Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Carrie Underwood and Fantasia.

I’m personally looking forward to seeing LaToya London, Kimberley Locke, Tamyra Gray and Jessica Sanchez the most. They even have Sanjaya on deck. Sadly, Jennifer Hudson isn’t included in the list. What’s up with that? Check out the lineup below.

Andy Cohen never met a pun he didn’t like. God bless 😉

The “Plead The Fifth” segment is typically the most revealing part during a celebrity’s visit on Watch What Happens Live. Not so in Iggy Azalea’s case. In actuality it was quite meh and uneventful.

Thankfully, the 25-year-old Aussie rapper spilled much more tea during another segment. Watch her discuss her supposed feuds with Macklemore, T.I. and Britney Spears. Speaking of the latter, Iggy discloses which Las Vegas residency show she’d rather see. Britney or J. Lo? Watch below to find out.

Ever curious which, if any, One Direction member Zayn Malik still keeps in contact with. Well, wonder no more. The 23-year-old reveals all to NME magazine’s latest issue.

On Which 1D Member He Still Talks To

“I’m still probably the closest to Liam [Payne]. We talk on the phone. He congratulated me on my single. Which was nice. I congratulated him on his Brit Award. It was a good chat. We hadn’t met in a long time so we want to meet up.”

Not surprising that it’s Liam. They always seemed quite close. With regards to the other guys, well, that’s a whole different story. It’s pretty clear there are still some unresolved issues after his departure from the group. Read below his thoughts on that subject.

meghan-trainor-britney-mashup

When I first heard Meghan Trainor’s sassy new single, “NO,” it reminded me a bit of Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!).” After watching this awesome mashup, I’ll now think of “Overprotected” by Britney Spears instead. In my defense, both those pop hits were released in 2001 😉

Producer Raheem D spliced together Trainor’s latest video with Britney’s classic clip for one stellar mashup. From the hair flips to the abandoned warehouse, Trainor does an excellent job of channeling Brit. If you’re going to spice up your image, you might as well look to one of the masters. Check out the video below.

Work, work, work, work, work, work!!! That’s exactly what Rihanna‘s latest single is doing. “Work” continues to dominate the Billboard Hot 100 for a fifth straight week. Expect her run on top to last a bit longer. It doesn’t appear to be slowing down in the near future.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande notches her seventh Top 10 hit with “Dangerous Woman.” She becomes the first artist in the chart’s 57-year-history to debut in the top 10 with the lead single from each of her first three albums. Not too shabby.

Elsewhere on the chart, “7 Years,” by Lukas Graham pushes to No. 3. The single by the Danish pop band was a worldwide hit late last year and has finally done the same in North America. Check out this week’s Top 10 below.

After the unfortunate misstep of “Focus,” Ariana Grande has rebounded quite nicely with the one-two punch of “Be Alright” and “Dangerous Woman.” My only qualm during her new era is her choice for headwear. Not a huge fan of her latex bunny ears but whatever… At least she can somewhat pull them off.

The 22-year-old singer just uploaded a rousing a cappella performance of “Dangerous Woman.” Dare I say, I might prefer this rendition over the radio edit. Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Grande has a serious set of pipes that are absolutely heavenly.

Watch the slayage below. Her guitar scatting beginning at the 2:15 is beyond adorable.
