Since being founded in 1994, MAC Viva Glam has generated nearly $340 million for AIDS research. For their 2015 fundraising efforts, MAC cosmetics has tapped Miley Cyrus to represent the brand.

The 21-year-old singer follows in the footsteps of Rihanna, RuPaul, Elton John, Nicki Minaj, and Lady Gaga as some of the superstars to lend their name. Cyrus inspired a new collection for the brand including a hot pink “amplified” lipstick and a matching lipglass. Check out the first eye-catching creative from the campaign below.

fifth-harmony-sledgehammer-artwork

Fifth Harmony’s new single “Sledgehammer” recently leaked to the delight of their loyal Harmonizers. Today, the girl group revealed the single’s artwork and more importantly the production credits.

Firstly, can we talk about the flawless cover? The girls serve up some vintage Gap ad fierceness circa the early 90s. Normani and Dinah’s locks have a Beyonce mind of their own ;) The single is equally as fantastic.

For those hoping “Sledgehammer” was a cover of Peter Gabriel’s 1986 smash hit, it’s not. However, the Meghan Trainor-penned single is awesome nonetheless. If anyone can write a well-deserved and overdue chart-topper for 5H it’s Trainor. Her breakthrough hit “All About The Bass” continues to rule the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Check out “Sledgehammer” below which features the production skills of Jonas Jeberg. The Danish hitmaker has crafted smashes for Kylie Minogue, Jason Derulo and Demi Lovato to name a few. Be sure to weigh in about the single afterward.

netflix-marco-polo-trailer

Who knew 13th century China could be so exciting and sexy for that matter? Netflix just unveiled the first trailer for their new series Marco Polo and it looks like it’ll be the streaming service’s next big hit.

Newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy plays the titular explorer. The series follows Polo on his adventures through Kublai Khan’s court. As the release states, we get a glimpse into Marco’s “greatest adventure of all.” Benedict Wong plays Chinese emperor in the 10-episode period original series. It promises to be a thrilling, violent and entertaining affair.

The entire first season will be available to binge watch starting at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, December 12 on Netflix. I’m definitely going to carve out some time to watch it during the hectic holiday season. Check out the trailer below.

calvin-harris-haim-duet

HAIM isn’t Calvin Harris’ most high profile collaboration on his forthcoming album Motion. However, “Pray To God,” could be one of the LP’s brightest standouts. The Scottish DJ’s EDM synth-heavy beats surprisingly lend themselves very well with the chilling pop harmonies from the LA-based trio of sisters. Great decision to team up with the ladies.

If “Pray To God” becomes a smash club hit, which I think it will, I hope HAIM experiments more with this genre of music. It’s a nice fit on them. Perhaps they could be the new queens of dance music. With that being said, I hope they still include similar fare found on their well-received album, Days Are Gone. Love that album. Give the new club anthem a listen below.

marvels-agent-carter

“Sometimes the best man for the job…. is a woman.” How outdated and cheesy is that tagline? I suppose the retro mentality is fitting for the period-set Marvel’s Agent Carter. ABC unveiled the first teaser for it’s new Marvel offering during the most recent episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

“When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name.” – ABC Description

The idea of committing to another television program from Marvel is a tad unappealing, especially given how disappointing S.H.I.E.L.D. has been. Thankfully, Agent Carter is only an eight-part miniseries. At least that’s what the alphabet network is saying. However, I’m sure if this is a ratings smash, network execs will figure out a way to bring it back.

Marvel’s Agent Carter premieres in January 2015 with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from Captain America: The First Avenger. The series takes place immediately following the events of that movie. Check out the first teaser trailer below.

jon-cryer-ashton-kutcher-kiss

Mark your calendars folks. On November 6, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer walk down the aisle. After all these years, have both finally discovered that they’re gay? Nope!!! The duo tie the knot in hopes of adopting a baby. I suppose this is one way to bring 2 And A Half Men back to original premise of two grown men raising a boy. Full circle for the show’s last season.

“The first time I heard it I said, ‘What?!’” Cryer told E! Online. “And then I thought, ‘Oh yeah it kind of makes sense, because last season Alan’s wedding fell apart and Ashton’s wedding has fallen apart.’ The writers have a good idea and it opens up a lot of doors.”

“I thought it was both very funny and heartwarming that these guys would go to such great lengths to get a kid out of the foster system and give him a home,” creator Chuck Lorre explained. “Yes, there’s some subterfuge in doing that, they are gaming the system, but the intention is to give a child a home, and it brings the series back to being about two men teaching a young man to become a man.”

To seal the deal, Michael Bolton returns to the CBS sitcom to belt out another tune. Back when Ashton’s character proposed to his girlfriend, he enlisted the 61-year-old crooner to sing “When A Man Loves A Woman.” This time around, he tweaks the lyrics and belts out “When A Man Loves A Man” as a wedding gift to the ‘happy couple.’ Check out a couple of preview pics below from the episode including one of Ashton and Jon kissing.

Austin Mahone Debuts R&B Jam ‘Places’

In: Donovan, Music
austin-mahone-places

Looks like his love affair with early 2000s boy bands is over. After looking to ‘N Sync and Backstreet Boys for inspiration on his EP, The Secret, Austin Mahone takes a more mature approach with his latest track, “Places.”

The 18-year-old trades in dance beats for a sexy bedroom sound. I’m thinking this is how he serenades the ladies after picking them up at the club. Or should I say bowling alley, since he’s underage ;)

Mahone get his lady love “screaming out oh-oh-oh-oh,” on the R&B slow jam which he co-penned with his friend Robert Villanueva. Listen to the track below.

calvin-harris-gwen-stefani-together

No offense to “Baby Don’t Lie” but THIS is a comeback single. Less than 24 hours after Calvin Harris premiered his Big Sean collaboration “Open Wide,” the Scottish DJ unveils his track with Gwen Stefani, “Together” in full. As one fans had hoped, it’s a winner.

The No Doubt singer goes full out EDM for the first time and it’s a good look on her. Stefani should really consider throwing a couple of dance tracks on her forthcoming solo album. “Together” is a festival-ready banger that will get concert goers jumping up and down. It’s still Gwen but with a nice electronic pulse. Give it a listen below. If you like what you hear, you can check out Harris’ full album, Motion, over at iTunes.
