News of Kanye West’s appearance on the farewell season of American Idol first broke months ago. FOX just released a new promo featuring the rapper’s much-heralded cameo.

Interestingly enough, Mr. Kim Kardashian is bundled up with some of the singing competition’s most notoriously bad singers. From William Hung’s unforgettable “She Bangs” audition to Season 6’s Sanjaya Malakar and a few in between. After watching this, I’m even more curious to see what West has in store for his ‘audition.’

American Idol Season 15 kicks off January 6. Check out the new promo below.

The Weeknd Debuts ‘Tell Your Friends’ Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

The Weeknd drops his second studio album Beauty Behind The Madness this week. Based on what I’ve heard so far, the 25-year-old Canadian crooner will avoid the dreaded sophomore slump. “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face” were both Billboard Hot 100 Top 5 hits and his latest is poised to follow the same trajectory.

Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd just debuted his latest visual to promote his LP’s release. And it’s a dark one. “Tell Your Friends” produced by Kanye West features Weeknd getting buried alive. He later appears above ground firing his gun at the same man who appeared in the his “Can’t Feel My Face” video.

Check out the Grant Singer-directed video below, along with a Beauty Behind The Madness album sampler. His album sounds so good.

Numerous fans felt a little gypped by the original edit of “Bitch I’m Madonna.” With all the marquee names participating, I, like many, assumed Beyonce, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus would’ve been featured more than just a couple of seconds in the Jonas Akerlund-directed clip. Pretty much all they did was lip sync just one line. Does her new visual rectify that faux pas?

Madonna ditches the partygoers and her Asian lady backup dancers in the Sander Kleinenberg remix video edit. Instead, the 56-year-old icon is shown gyrating and hair flipping in a room solo while grainy footage of Kanye West, Rita Ora, Chris Rock, Diplo, Nicki Minaj and the aforementioned names are edited in between. The cameos are a bit longer but not by much. Check out the video remix edit below.

Taking a page from Taylor Swift’s playbook, Madonna enlists her famous friends for her star-studded visual “Bitch I’m Madonna.” Unlike Swift’s “Bad Blood” clip though, the guest stars in the video seem like an afterthought.

With exception to Rita Ora, Chris Rock and Diplo, the likes of Beyonce, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus appear to have taped their cameos after Jonas Akerlund finished directing the clip.

Not surprisingly, the clip debuted exclusively on Tidal. If you recall, Madonna made headlines when she lifted her leg on the table while giving her signature.

While “Bad Blood” is a far superior clip, Madge’s latest is still a playful little romp. Lots of colorful and fun fashion abound. Check out it below before Jay-Z’s minions take it down.

It’s no secret I love Nick Jonas. Besides the obvious (his body), I’ve been pleasantly surprised by his solo album. With that being said, I’m a little disappointed with his latest appearance.

The “Jealous” singer stopped by the UK’s Capital FM recently. As they do with everyone who sits down, they persuade them to play a round of Instaoke. Three songs are randomly (yeah right) chosen for the guest to sing.

The imaginary wheel stopped on “Problem” (Ariana Grande), “Bye Bye Bye” (‘N Sync) And “Gold Digger” (Kanye West) for Nick. Dude doesn’t even remotely look like he’s into it. The most entertaining thing about the whole thing was the slight shade thrown at Grande’s expense. Watch the clip below.

Heading into the 2015 Billboard Music Awards telecast, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea’s first performance of “Pretty Girls” was without a doubt the performance everyone was looking most forward to. About two hours in, the duo did themselves proud. It wasn’t at all a trainwreck, and in fact, both ladies looked sensational. Britney, IMHO, hasn’t looked this great and comfortable on stage in years. Well done.

Mariah Carey also made a notable appearance as well. She hit the Billboard stage for the first time in 17 years. Perhaps she’s still recuperating from bronchitis, but Mimi wasn’t at her vocal best. Every note felt so laborious as opposed to the ease she belted out those notes years ago.

Meanwhile, Kelly Clarkson absolutely slayed her vocals during her “Invincible” performance as did Tori Kelly and Nick Jonas on “Nobody Love” and “Jealous” respectively.

Speaking of Jonas, he was in fine form tonight. Dude looked beyond sexy. Charlie Puth and Empire‘s Jussie Smollett also smoldered on stage during their respective performances. Check out all the videos below.

In his head, Kanye West already thinks he’s one of the most influential people in the world. Now, he has TIME magazine in his corner. The publication named the 37-year-old rapper as one of their 100 Most Influential People on their 2015 list.

“Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t. Kanye’s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity—he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut—got him to where he is today.” entrepreneur Elon Musk wrote about Kanye.

Bradley Cooper, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ballet dancer Misty Copeland, and journalist Jorge Ramos along with West all received their own separate covers for the annual issue.

Other notable names to make the cut this year include Emma Watson, Chris Pratt, Amy Schumer, Hilary Clinton, Barack Obama, Taylor Swift, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Lee Daniels and Kevin Hart to name a few. Check out below all the other covers which were snapped by photographer Sebastian Kim.

Madonna has the distinction of gracing more Rolling Stone covers than any other female. With so many under her belt, some repetition was bound to happen.

For her latest cover, the 56-year-old poses for a close up rocking a sexy red lip. The visual is very reminiscent of her Marilyn Monroe-inspired cover in the 90s. Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?

Inside the issue, Madge gets fiery and introspective. One of the topics she discusses is ageism in pop culture. Recently, the “Living For Love” singer felt the sting of that when a radio station in the UK banned her for being ‘irrelevant and old‘ for its teenage listeners. OUCH!!!

Madonna also reveals her real feelings about Lady Gaga, her marriage to Guy Ritchie, her relationship with Judaism, her assessment of Kanye West, calling him a ‘brilliant madman‘ and Taylor Swift. Check out some quotes below.

On Taylor Swift

“She has an opinion, and she’s going against the norm. So in that respect, she is similar to me, yeah. And also, people just want to give her a hard time all the time because they think she’s a goody-two-shoes, so of course I want to embrace her.”
