In the music industry, women are pitted against each other all the time in a game of “she said / she said”. This is partially to do with their ego and partially to do with the tabloids making matters worse. Either way, people seem to love the drama and controversy of it all. I came across a video uploaded a couple days ago by Rich Juzwiak (the arts writer at The Daily and blogger at fourfour.typepad.com) has put together clips from interviews where one diva has talked trash about another. It’s absolutely amazing. The one rule for the video is that the person speaking in each clip must have been talked about in the preceding clip. It’s interesting to see how they all come together.

One major source of drama was definitely Mariah Carey. Whether it’s the former rivalry between her and Whitney Houston, Madonna, Christina Aguilera, or even Jennifer Lopez, Mimi seemed to be at the center of it all. Another rivalry I forgot about was between Janet Jackson and Madonna. In one of the clips, Janet is asked how her music compares to Madonna’s, and she responds: “It’s dance music, I’ll say that… which is very similar. I think… How do I put this? I think what I do has class to it. I’ll say that.”

The montage even features more current rivalries such as a more media driven, Lady Gaga vs. Christina Aguilera. Enjoy the video below and stay on Mariah’s good side!

The Voice Returns With New Promo

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

With some critics and TV viewers feeling that the new X Factorin the US is leaving them feeling ho-hum, fear not. The return of NBC’s smash-hit vocal competition The Voice is gearing up for season two which will go to air Sunday after the Super Bowl on February 5. And to make the anticipation even better, we have our first look at the new season via the lastest promo from NBC. One quote that rings out in the promo is:

Singing in front of all of you is an experience I wish every artist could have.

Christina, Blake, Cee Lo and Adam are all back to their usual rivalries. With the Maroon 5 front man finding last seasons winner, Javier Colon, the heat is on for one of the other three judges be sure that he doesn’t snag the winning talent once again. I’m also looking forward to the addition of Christina Milian into the mix. Check out the new promo below.

At first you wonder, did these celebrities leak their own photos? Or perhaps you wonder, who had access to their phone, or did an angry ex leak the photos? Turns out it was actually much more elaborate than all of that. A 35-year old man from Jacksonville, Florida named Christopher Chaney was arrested today for actually hacking into the accounts of these celebrities and leaking their (sometimes naked) photos. Some of these celebrity victims include: Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kunis, Christina Aguilera, celebrity stylist Simone Harouche.

The FBI made an announcement today about the news and explained how the hacker was able to access their information. The investigation was called, “Operation Hackerazzi“. No relation to us – LOL. Chaney got their passwords the hard way. He delved deep into their lives through tabloids, twitter, magazines, to look for potential passwords until he eventually figured them out and hacked their email. He then used an email forwarding program that would send him a duplicate of any messages the celebs would receive to his own account. Check out the FBI announcement below.

Yesterday four unreleased tracks- “Rock Star“, “Abroad“, “Dangerous“, and “Everyday”- from Britney Spears leaked online, but none created an online frenzy like “Everyday“. Firstly, it’s a ballad which is not typically what the “Femme Fatale” singer is known for. Secondly, and more notably, it sounds eerily similar to Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful”. From the piano chords to the musical vibe, it is very reminiscent of X-Tina’s signature ballad.

“Footsteps in the rain, memories wash away / Beyond the headlight glare, it’s kinda dark out there,” Brit laments in the newly-leaked song. “God knows I have seen it’s a twisting, winding road / And everyday the sun comes up again/ a little hope begins / And it starts with you ’cause you get me through it.”

There doesn’t seem to be a consensus on what album “Everyday” was recorded for. Some say it was for her last album, but I can’t see it. From “Hold It Against Me“, “Till the World Ends” and “I Wanna Go“, the slow jam doesn’t fit in with her dance diva persona. That being said, I kinda like hearing the softer side of Spears. Don’t get me wrong, it’s doesn’t even come close to “Beautiful”, but it’s nice to hear Britney’s voice without the excessive autotuning. Take a listen below and see what you come up with.

The Voice” may have not made superstars out of Javier Colon, Dia Frampton or any other singer from the inaugural season yet, but it’s definitely responsible for propelling Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera’s comeback. Their collaboration on “Moves Like Jagger” has made the track into a summer favorite. Now it’s become the No. 1 track in the country, according to Billboard’s Hot 100, punctuating their comeback even more. Just how important is this for both artists? “Moves Like Jagger” is Maroon 5’s first top charter since 2007’s “Makes Me Wonder“. The drought is even longer for Xtina. She last topped the charts in 2001 with “Lady Marmalade“- another collaboration.

It’ll be interesting to see if Aguilera can continue the momentum when her new album comes out. God knows, it can’t do any worse than her disastrousBionic” effort. I’m sure Christina and her peeps will make every effort to ensure her new album will be ready when “The Voice” returns to television in early 2012. Rounding out the Top 5 singles this week are “Party Rock Anthem” (LMFAO) at No. 2 with “Pumped Up Kicks” (Foster The People), “Lighters” (Bad Meets Evil ft Bruno Mars) and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” (Katy Perry) following.

During Brian and my European travels, which just completed this week, I heard a wicked mashup while staying in Greece. It featured “Moves Like Jagger” with the dance classic “Lady” by Mojo. Created by Brian Cua, it was featured during a fashion show. It’s definitely sexy. Topher which had never heard the song before (that’s what he gets for living in Amsterdam) became a convert when he heard the mashup. Check it out below and download it for free if you like it.

HORRAY! It has finally arrived. The official video for my favorite song so far this summer, Moves Like Jagger. After the two met on the set of their hit show The Voice, judges and coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine teamed up with his band Maroon 5 for a pop music smash hit. From the lyrics, to the harmonies, to the amazing concept, this song was destined to be a hit from it’s conception.

The video is a lot of fun as well. Between the multiple Mick Jagger impressions, we are treated to the also sexy Levine singing into the lens making all of us swoon (especially when his shirt is off). When Christina hits the scene, the party really begins. She looks fabulous and it’s obvious she is having a lot of fun. While the video might not be the most elaborate, I think it absolutely matches the style of the song. But, I will let you be the judge. Check out the new video below.

Ding ding, let another round begin. It’s really no secret that Kelly Osbourne & Christina Aguilera absolutely despise each other. These two have been going at it since 2002 when Kelly first start fighting with the blonde singer on her television show The Osbournes. This time, Kelly is letting Christina have it on E!’s, Fashion Police.

During a recent taping for the show, the hosts were asked to critique Christina’s outfit choice for her own fragrance launch in Munich. The dress was a form fitting black number. To no surprise, Kelly had nothing nice to say about Christina in the outfit.

“Maybe she is just becoming the fat b***h she was born to be. I don’t know. She called me fat for so many f***ing years,” she continues, “so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat, too.”

Oh dear, those are some fighting words. Do you think it’s fair for someone like Kelly who has struggled with her own personal weight issues to call Christina out on hers? OR, do you think that Christina is getting her just desserts for calling Kelly fat for years? Check out Christina’s outfit below and decide for yourself.

The Winner of “The Voice” Is…

In: Donovan, TV Shows

It’s the night we’ve waited for all season long. Tonight “The Voice” crowns its first ever winner. Will it be Javier Colon, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez or Dia Frampton? More importantly, which judge will have bragging rights going into the show’s second season? Thankfully, the show was only an hour long tonight, and filled with only a few fillers. Carson delivered the results all within the last five minutes of the show. I wish they had spread it throughout the evening. For instance, reveal the fourth place singer, third and so forth in between the filler.

Before I get to the results, I’ll quickly go over tonight’s performances. Each of the finalists got to perform another duet, this time with someone other than their mentor. Vicci Martinez performed with the lead singer from Train, Javier Colon with Stevie Nicks, Beverly McClellan was joined by Ryan Tedder and Dia Frampton shared the stage with her coach’s wife, Miranda Lambert. Javier and Stevie’s performance was by far the best of the night. Tingles, tingles, tingles.
