dj-earworm-2014-mashup

One of the things I look most forward to at this time of year is DJ Earworm’s annual music video, mashing up the calendar year’s 25 biggest Billboard hits. With the decline of EDM on the Hot 100 chart, Earworm (real name: Jordan Roseman) tells Billboard he went with a more mellower approach.

“The thing that has been most notable in the past two or three years is the decline of EDM,” says Earworm of the 25 songs he selected for this year’s song. “The ‘United State of Pop’ became this dance track from ’09 to ’12, and then starting last year, there just wasn’t enough in that genre to fully support it, so I went down-tempo. And this year, ‘Timber,’ which was popular in January, is the only popular dance track I’m dealing with. It’s definitely down-tempo, so you have to decide, how is this going to go? How am I going to maintain the energy levels while being true to the sound of the year?”

It truly is remarkable how he weaves ballads like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and John Legend’s “All Of Me” with hip-hop anthems like Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” and Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow,” along with dance tracks DJ Snake’s “Turn Down For What” and Pitbull’s “Timber.” Check out the DJ/Producer’s latest masterpiece below, along with a list of which tracks made the cut.

The battle rounds for The Voice Season 7 have just started airing, but NBC has already assembled the coaching panel for Season 8. Typically, Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green would’ve reclaimed their red swivel chairs for Season 7 but due to Aguilera’s pregnancy and Green’s legal troubles, producers brought in newbies Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams to take over Shakira and Usher.

With so many coaches to pick from, would producers create a new combination or bring in new judges? More importantly, will permanent fixtures Adam Levine and Blake Shelton remain on the panel? Find out thew new lineup after the jump.

Cee Lo Green Not Returning To The Voice

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Attention Voice fans, Cee Lo Green has left the building. While it’s been known for a while that Green along with Christina Aguilera are skipping Season 6 to pursue other projects, everyone naturally assumed he’d return for Season 7, like he did previously when he took a season off. The 39-year-old rapper broke the news to a surprised Ellen Degeneres on her talk show.

After being the first mentor to lose his acts last season, I can’t say I blame him for leaving the singing competition. I hope this doesn’t mean that we’ve seen the last of Christina Aguilera as well. Hopefully, she’ll return with Usher, or even better, Shakira by her side. I’d love to see two women in the red chairs simultaneously. Make it happen NBC.

If you want to get your Cee Lo fill, you can catch him on tour with Lionel Richie. Watch the two promote their upcoming shows to Ellen’s audience below, along with Green confirming his Voice departure.

Without a doubt, ARTPOP‘s legacy will be how horribly “Do What U Want” was mishandled. Even though it wasn’t originally planned as the second official single, Lady Gaga switched things up because the slinky pop track was getting the most favorable reviews. The only early criticism it faced was the inclusion of alleged sex offender R. Kelly on the sexual track. Even with that, it had momentum to be a hit.

Sadly though, a music video was never released, reportedly due to Gaga putting her trust in the wrong people. The single looked to have a second shot when Mother Monster joined forces with Christina Aguilera for a headline-grabbing live performance on The Voice. Why she chose New Years Day to release the single with Aguilera on iTunes was a little perplexing. And now comes this.

Steven Redant was commissioned to work his magic on the track. The 27-year-old “Applause” singer uploaded four official remixes by the Barcelona-based DJ on her YouTube account recently. Gotta wonder why it took so long to put these up. Even as hot as these dance remixes are, the window for “Do What U Want” to be ARTPOP‘s lone chart-topper has come and gone. Check out the remixes below.

Everyone ages but to see it in a matter of seconds is truly fascinating.

Some enterprising fan took the time to showcase Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera age from the beginning of their careers til present day. Spears and Aguilera’s changes aren’t too drastic since it’s been only 16 years since they made their pop breakthroughs. However, with Madge’s case it spans a whopping three decades from virginal pop tart to golden girl.

Check out each pop queen’s aging process below. Weigh in afterward on who has the best genes or best plastic surgeon ;)

International publications using existing photos of celebrities on their respective covers is nothing new. In fact, it’s a common practice. However, when two editions of a magazine use the same celebrity simultaneously but one is clearly photoshopped, it’s kinda hilarious. Didn’t the parent company not know what their foreign entities were up to?

If you watched Season 5 of The Voice, you undoubtedly noticed Christina Aguilera’s weight loss. She looked fantastic. Apparently, she was too skinny for Cosmopolitan’s Middle East edition. The publication placed Aguilera’s flawless face with some other chick’s body. The “real” head to toe picture appears on the Malaysian edition’s cover. It’s clear the same headshot was used given that X-Tina’s wearing identical earrings and sporting the same makeup and hair. Hilariously enough, the image was originally used for Elle Brazil.

Man Crush: DJ Craig

In: Donovan, Music, Totally GAY!
dj-craig

Don’t let the name fool you. He’s actually not a DJ, although he is embarking in a career in music. David John Craig or DJ Craig as he prefers to be known professionally is an actor, model and aspiring singer. Since he sorta reminds me of Gleb Savchenko from Dancing With The Stars, I thought I’d feature him in my Man Crush series. I love me some Gleb.

I stumbled upon this Pennsylvania-born stud thanks to a suggestion sent to me via our Facebook page. When I saw his face he looked familiar, but couldn’t quite place him. After checking out his website, I figured it out. He was featured in Christina Aguilera’s “Your Body” music video. Other celebrities he’s worked projects with include Neil Patrick Harris, Dane Cook, Seth Green, Chris Brown, Cher Lloyd, Jasmine V., Placebo, and OwlCity.

Recently, he released a YouTube video doing a cover of songs containing “Beautiful.” Those artists in his medley include One Direction, James Blunt, Prince, Bruno Mars, Joe Cocker, Jesse McCartney and, naturally, Aguilera. Check out the clip below along with sexy pics from his Instagram and Facebook. If you want to hear some of his original material, be sure to click on the SoundCloud link at the end of the post.

Nasty” was originally recorded by Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green. Some reports say the collaboration between The Voice judges was intended for either Aguilera’s Lotus LP or Burlesque soundtrack. Either way, it was never released. As they often say, one man’s trash, is another man’s treasure. How hilarious would it be if Pixie Lott’s version became a global hit? I betcha Xtina’s panties would bunch up ;)

It’s been a long three years since the 22-year-old’s sophomore effort. For her third studio album, Lott revealed Motown served as an inspiration. “I’m going to be heading to New York to work with the guys who did the original Motown records in the ’60s to make a new album soon,” she previously stated. If the LP sounds anything like “Nasty,” I’m all in. I’m loving the sassy hook and jazzy-retro production. Hopefully, the Bryan Barber-directed clip is equally as fun.

Check out both versions below and sound off on which songbird sounds best on the track in the comments section.
