Calvin Harris is such a tease. Among the numerous teasers the Scottish DJ posted on Instagram for his new music video was a photo of himself shirtless in the desert. It’s clear he’s been working out. Girlfriend Rita Ora is one lucky chick. You’d think he’d want to flaunt that body of his. Sadly, all we’re left with is a simple white tee snugging his torso.

Summer” will definitely be a club anthem this Summer. For such a catchy track, I was hoping for a much more entertaining visual. It’s pretty standard with a bunch of women in bathing suits and cut-off denim shorts on display as they hang poolside and watch a drag race (not of the RuPaul variety) in the California desert. Check out the clip below.

Who knew Emma Stone was such a hardcore Spice Girls fangirl? I assumed the slight waterworks displayed when Scary Spice greeted her via video was simply an exaggerated act put on for Aussie audiences. I assumed wrong. The 25-year-old actress wasn’t joking.

During a promotional stop on Jimmy Kimmel, she revealed her given name was Emily but changed it to Emma because Baby Spice was her favorite. She also displayed a unique talent. Girlfriend is an expert forger. At least when it comes to copying each Spice Girl’s autograph. She even does it from memory. Someone seriously had lots of time on their hands in their bedroom as a girl. Now we know why she performed that scene in Easy A so perfectly.

Meanwhile, over at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Stone was joined with her Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-stars for a game of Never Have I Ever. Not surprisingly, she’s the most prude among the trio. Check out both vids below.

It’s not exactly a Destiny’s Child and ‘N Sync combo tour but it’s somewhat close. Michelle Williams appeared on Good Morning America to announce a Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour. She’ll be joined with JC Chasez, Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd and Sex Pistols’ John Rotten Lydon. Chasez will play Pontius Pilate while Williams steps in to portray Mary Magdalene. Ben Forster has been tapped to play Jesus Christ.

“I’m looking forward to the experience,” said Chasez. “This is honestly my first theater experience so I’m being thrown into the fire a bit. But I’m excited because the fact that we’re doing something that feels pretty unique.”

This North American tour of more than 50 cities will kick off in New Orleans’ Lakefront Arena on June 9. Set in the present day and updated for a 21st-century audience, Jesus Christ Superstar is a live two-hour rock concert with over 50 cast and musicians performing a dramatization of the last seven days in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

Told from the point of view of Jesus’s friend Judas Iscariot, the original story from the Bible is reflected through our modern society to bring the Gospels to life using contemporary costumes plus arena-scale lighting and video effects that demonstrate the eternal power of this timeless story.

Williams along with Boyd performed a number from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical on GMA today. Check it out below.

amber-riley-colorblind

Amber Riley has always been my favorite since Glee premiered. Even though Lea Michele gets all the headlines, Amber is my girl. I’m beyond ecstatic she’s finally embarking on a recording career. She’s too talented not to give it a try. I’m sure winning Dancing With The Stars helped opened a few more doors. The 28-year-old premiered her debut single on The Queen Latifah Show.

Colorblind” is a slow-tempo ballad which puts Riley’s vocals front and center. She sings about living in a world of black and white after losing the love of her life. The track was written by Claude Kelly and Emeli Sande (love her). I’m already in love with it. Once it gets a hot dance remix, I’ll be even more obsessed.

Glee will also feature Riley’s single on Tuesday’s episode titled “Bash” which finds Kurt (Chris Colfer) the subject of a gay bashing in NYC. Give the emotional track a listen below.

Rihanna & Chvrches Mashup: The Umbrella We Share

rihanna-chvrches

Since it’s Throwback Thursday, I thought I’d share this fun little track. Comedian Dan Chamerlain, better known as Chambaland to his tumblr followers, does some pretty slick mashups. His latest masterpiece brings together two unlikely artists – Rihanna and Scottish band Chvrches.

Chambaland has combined RiRi’s vocals from “Umbrella” with the synth arrangement of the trio’s “The Mother We Share.” I’m sure Chvrches would approve. They love R&B as evident by their wicked cover of the Whitney classic, “It’s Not Right, But It’s Okay.” Give “The Umbrella We Share” a listen below.

iggy-azalea-im-coming-out-cover

Let me just preface this by saying Iggy Azalea is on fire. On the heels of her sensational collaboration with Charli XCX on “Fancy” comes another masterpiece. 2014 is definitely going to be her breakout year on mainstream radio.

When footage first leaked of Azalea in the recording studio, it appeared she was doing a straight up cover of “Mo Money Mo Problems” which features a sample of Diana Ross’ disco classic, “I’m Coming Out.” Now that the audio has surfaced, it appears the Aussie MC has reworked Notorious B.I.G.’s hit record, giving it a female perspective with some major girl power lyrics. Keyshia Cole jumps on board to add her own flavor to Ross’ catchy hook.

The track is featured in the Cameron Diaz comedy, The Other Woman. Give it a spin below.

Loved, loved, loved Lauryn Hill before she went a little bonkers. Her Grammy-winning album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is one of my favorites of all-time. I’m sure I’m not alone. Naturally, when I saw Drake sampled her 1998 hit “Doo-Wop (That Thing),” I had to check it out.

It appears Drizzy recorded “Draft Day” for his budding bromance with NFL prospect Johnny Manziel. With the NFL draft a little over a month away, the aptly titled track couldn’t have arrived at a better time. In addition to Manziel, the Canadian rapper also drops a couple other names including Chance The Rapper and Jennifer Lawrence. Check out the track below. If you love it, you can download it for free.
