This Spring, Adam Lambert takes a break from being the tour frontman for Queen and embarks on a new era. His long-awaited third studio album and first with his new label, Warner Music, finally sees the light of day. He left Sony Music reportedly due to ‘creative differences.’

Lambert teams up with Max Martin and Shellback for The Original High. The hitmakers will executive produce his forthcoming LP. He previously collaborated with them on the infectious, “If I Had You.” Reportedly, the lead single will arrive sometime in April.

The 33-year-old announced the news via Twitter earlier today accompanied with the promo photo above. Excited for Lambert’s new album. Do you think it’ll be a smash like For Your Entertainment or bomb like Trespassing? Weigh in below.

Ted Walks Down The Aisle In First Trailer For Sequel

In: Donovan, Movies
ted-2-movie-trailer

Everyone’s favorite potty-mouthed teddy bear is back. Naturally, Seth MacFarlane had to film a sequel since the first one became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy in history when it was released in 2012. Lord knows no studio is going to greenlight A Million Ways to Die in the West 2 ;)

In the new film, Ted and his new wife Tami-Lynn want to have a baby. Since Ted has no reproductive parts, Wahlberg has to donate his swimmers to impregnate Ted’s wife. However, before anyone gets inseminated, Ted has to prove in a court of law that he’s a person. Expect plenty of semen and sex jokes and the same raunchy humor found in the original.

Mark Wahlberg and MacFarlane’s voice return for Ted 2 which hits theaters on June 26. Amanda Seyfried joins in on the fun as Samantha Leslie Jackson. Get it, Sam L. Jackson. LOL. Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Patrick Warburton, Dennis Haysbert, Jessica Barth and Richard Schiff round out the cast. Check out the first trailer for Ted 2 below.

I almost didn’t recognize them with clothes on. When the Warwick rowers are naked, naturally one focuses on their toned physiques. It’s easy to skim over their handsome faces. Not this time. Their photogenic mugs are front and center.

Members of the UK rowing team put on some Calvins and other designer threads for Paper Mag. Photographer Rodolfo Martinez snaps the anti-bullying and anti-homophobia supporters for a stylish editorial.

For those looking for some skin, there’s a few shots of them showing off their famous torsos. There’s even a few NSFW nude visuals shot by Angus Malcolm as well. Check out a sampling below.

charli-xcx-sings-in-japanese

In preparation for Sucker hitting stores in Japan on February 10, Charli XCX has taken an interesting approach to ensure its success in the country. The British singer-songwriter recorded her hit songs “Boom Clap” and “Break The Rules” in Japanese. Bold move indeed. Can you think of another Western artist that’s done this previously? I can’t.

I don’t speak Japanese so I’m not sure how on point her pronunciation is, but based on my naive ears, she sounds pretty good. She’s adorably bad-ass on these new versions. Dare I say that I prefer them over the originals. Clearly, she loves her Japanese ‘Angels.’ That’s what she calls her fans in the Land of the Rising Sun.

For anyone who’s followed Charli’s career, this bold move shouldn’t be a surprise. Just before the release of her album, she revealed to Time that her next album will “be heavily inspired by Japanese pop music” and will sound “intensely weird and childlike.” Definitely check them out below.

If anyone needs an image rehabilitation, it’s Justin Bieber. The 20-year-old Canadian singer has been a public relations nightmare with his headline-grabbing antics. It appears, 2015 is all about turning things around.

On Thursday’s episode of The Ellen DeGegeneres Show, The Biebs surprises the talk show host for her birthday celebration. After the taped appearance, he uploaded a ‘candid’ video he shared on Fahlo. In the clip, Justin pours his heart out to his fans, apologizing for his arrogant behavior the past year.

“It’s been a minute since I’ve been in a public appearance, and I didn’t want to come off arrogant or conceited or basically how I’ve been acting the past year and a half,” Bieber said.

He goes on to talk about how difficult it is being young and growing up in the business, stating he isn’t the person he’s been pretending to be.

“I’m not who I was pretending to be. Why I say I was ‘pretending’ is often we pretend to be something we’re not as a cover up of what we’re truly feeling inside. And there were a lot of feelings going on in there.”

Not surprisingly, the Beliebers praised his bold move, resulting in #WeAreSoProudOfYouJustin to trend in the US. His manager, Scooter Braun, took to Twitter to commend him. “Very proud of u. Real courage comes when owning your own mistakes. Proud,” he tweeted. Check out Justin’s personal video below.

hozier-take-me-to-church

If you haven’t heard Hozier’s “Take Me to Church,” you need to—immediately. Go listen now. No, seriously. Right now. I’ll wait, because it may be the most soulful thing that has come out of my car radio/laptop speakers/Apple device in the last few months.

And clearly, I’m not the only one to think so. The first single off Hozier’s self-titled debut album, “Take Me to Church” shot to No. 2 on the Irish charts and made swift work of the U.S. music scene soon after. Since then, the 23-year-old—who has a charming accent, hair anyone would be jealous of, and a slight, but wholly endearing, overbite—has been in the public eye non-stop. He’s played numerous shows, given interviews, and even performed at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December.
