Ellie Goulding takes a page out of Ed Sheeran’s playbook and puts on her dancing shoes much like how the “Thinking Out Loud” singer did for his visual. Both artists show off their contemporary SLASH ballroom moves.

Love Me Like You Do” is the second official music video from Fifty Shades of Grey, following on the heels of The Weeknd’s “Earned It” which debuted yesterday. Since The Weeknd snagged one of the movie’s stars, Dakota Johnson, to appear in his clip, I was expecting Jamie Dornan to show up in Goulding’s. Sadly, I’m left disappointed and the only images we see of him are clips from the movie. In fact, Ellie’s new video acts like a movie trailer with half the time devoted to incorporating film footage.

Whether the film adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel becomes a box office hit, I’m pretty certain the soundtrack will be a smash. Everything I’ve heard so far is fantastic. Ellie’s “Love Me Like You Do,” co-written by Max Martin and Tove Lo is destined to be a radio hit. Check out the visual below.

Did you feel there was something a little off with Lana Del Rey’s last album Ultraviolence? Perhaps it was the fact she didn’t work with Emile Haynie who produced most of her breakthrough album, Born To Die. Her signature melancholy orchestral tones were less prevalent for sure. The 29-year-old reunites with the American producer for a new track.

Wait For Life” could easily have been lifted from Born To Die. Instead, the new track is from Haynie’s forthcoming debut album titled We Fall, due out February 24.

Along with Del Rey, Emile enlisted an all-star roster of talent to lend their vocals. Among those involved include Rufus Wainwright, Nate Ruess from f.u.n., Lykke Li and Randy Newman to name a few. Listen to “Wait For Life” below.

Madonna Responds To Arrest Of Her Alleged Hacker

In: Donovan, Music

Back in December, demos for most of Madonna‘s forthcoming album leaked online. It appears the culprit behind the massive leak of Rebel Heart has been apprehended.

Israeli police believe they’ve caught the 39-year-old man who hacked into Madge’s computer. Allegedly the man is suspected of stealing work from other artists as well. Media in Tel Aviv report the suspect is a former contestant on one of the singing competitions in the country. The arrest comes after a month-long investigation by the country’s FBI-like agency- Lahav 433.

“[The suspect] broke into the personal computers of several international artists over the past few months and stole promotional final-cut singles which have yet to be released and traded them online for a fee.” – Lahav 433

Naturally, Madonna is thankful that the man supposedly responsible for this nightmare is behind bars. She wrote the following on Facebook.

TLC proved they “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg” earlier this week when they launched a Kickstarter campaign asking their fans to fund the recording of their final album. The remaining members of the girl group offered up dance lessons, a workout, access to a listening party and lots of signed paraphernalia to lure in donations.

“While major labels offer artists multimillion dollar recording and marketing budgets, they don’t often give artists complete control of their own music. It is ESSENTIAL that we create our final album completely on our own terms, without any restrictions, with YOU.” – TLC

As of right now, the girls have amassed over $110,000 in donations, almost reaching their goal of $150,000. With 28 days left in the campaign, they should have no problem meeting, if not, exceeding that number. About $5,000 came from Miss “Roar” herself.

Katy Perry, according to TMZ, shelled out money for the project. Who knew she was such a fan? Based on that amount, Perry either gets a onesie or a night with the girls for an epic slumber party. Hopefully, it’s the latter. Can you just imagine the Instagram selfies from that night of pillow talk?

Since Perry obviously loves their music, hopefully a collaboration can happen. Fingers crossed. If you want an idea of what that might sound like, check out this fan-made TLC-Katy Perry mashup below from a couple of years ago.

If the movie adaptation is remotely as racy as this music video, expect a titillating time.

The Weeknd just debuted the music video for “Earned It,” the lead cut off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. It could certainly give Beyonce’s “Partition” video a run for its money as the sexiest cabaret-set visual ever.

Women dressed in S&M-themed attire dance seductively for the Canadian crooner. One of said women is Dakota Johnson herself who plays Anastasia Steele in the erotic thriller. She’s tied up like a chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Jessie Ware, Sia, Ellie Goulding, Annie Lennox and Beyonce. Check out The Weeknd’s video below. Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters on February 13.

2015-glaad-media-awards

The nominees for the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards have just been released. The event recognizes and honors media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives. Ceremonies will be held in L.A. on March 21 at the Beverly Hilton and in New York City on May 9 at the Waldorf Astoria New York to announce the winners.

“It’s been a remarkable year for equality, and nowhere is that more evident than in the visibility LGBT people have gained across media. This year’s nominees, including expanded categories in Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series, reflect the widening diversity of LGBT images and storylines that are closing the gap to full acceptance,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a press release.

It truly has been a remarkable year, especially in television. Just 10 years ago in 2005, just eight comedies and 17 dramas were considered for the annual awards. This year, there are 52 comedy series and 83 dramas with regular LGBT characters. How To Get Away With Murder, The Fosters, Game of Thrones, Transparent, Looking and Glee were just a few that were singled out.

On the movie front, The Imitation Game, Pride & The Skeleton Twins earned nods. Sam Smith and Mary Lambert were just a couple acts honored in the music categories. Check out all the nominees below including ones in the journalism field.

nkotb-tlc-nelly-tour

Is it me or does it seem like New Kids On The Block are on tour more now than they were during their hey day? In recent years, they teamed up with Backstreet Boys for the NKOTBSB tour, and 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men for last year’s Package Tour. This summer, they head on the road with TLC and Nelly for what will undoubtedly be an awesome throwback party.

“This is such a great bill and we have so many hit records and such huge followings that we just want to make it the party of the year. That’s why we call it ‘The Main Event.’ It’s going to be the event of the year.” – Donnie Wahlberg

In other TLC-related news, the girl group reaches out to their fans to help fund their final album. They hope to raise $150,000 via their Kickstarter campaign. As of press time, they’ve received over $70,000 in pledges. If you’re interested in supporting them, they’re offering up meet-and-greets, photoshoot and other enticing opportunities.

rita-ora-charli-xcx-doing-it

Sounds like a regular Friday night to me ;) I kid.

Charli XCX enlists Rita Ora for a little girl power on a reworked version of “Doing It” featured on her Sucker album. The Madonna meets Mariah Carey-tinged 90s feel-good anthem is much better with both ladies on it. Naturally, for the accompanying visual the duo looked to an iconic 90s chick flick for inspiration.

The “Boom Clap” singer and Ora channel their inner Thelma & Louise for the Adam Powell-directed visual. While in the Californian desert, the two cause mayhem while wearing some very ‘interesting’ colorful outfits. At one point, a cowgirl-looking Charli is joined by a bunch of people for a busted-up YMCA-like dance. Check out all the randomness below.
