There’s no denying that Max Martin has the ‘Midas Touch‘ when it comes to crafting hit singles. His resume includes countless of Top 10 singles, many of which have reached pole position on the Billboard Hot 100.

Recently, the prolific Swedish producer notched his 21st chart-topper with The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face.” Though Martin produces for both male and female acts, it’s his collaborations with the women that have yielded him the biggest successes. Katy Perry can thank Max for eight No. 1 hits while Taylor Swift and Britney Spears have four and three courtesy of his genius.

Check out my Top 10 favorite chart-toppers from Martin below. There’s no rhyme or reason. It’s just purely based on personal preference.

September is a key month for the publishing world. Editors bring out the big guns to ensure that their all-important issue flies off the newsstands.

Harper’s Bazaar wrangled up a wide range of celebrities for a full-on fall fashion fantasy spread. Carine Roitfeld and photographer Jean-Paul transform the likes of Katy Perry, Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Chastain and more into history’s legends. Perry channels Elizabeth Taylor in the above pic. Check out the others below.

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.

youtube-10th-anniversary

Ten years ago today would forever change the landscape of the Internet. YouTube was officially founded by three former PayPal employees. The first video, however, wasn’t upload until April 23, 2005 by one of the co-founders. If you’re curious, “Me At The Zoo” can still be viewed on the video-sharing website.

In honor of YouTube’s 10th anniversary, I’ve embedded the Top 10 viewed videos. The lowest garnering 796,000 to the cream of the crop with over 2 billion clocks. Not surprisingly, music dominates the list. Especially Katy Perry and PSY who both nab two entries each. The sole exception being “Charlie Bit My Finger – Again!.” Check out the most popular clips ever below.

Nothing says true love like getting thrown off a mechanical bull with your loved one ;) For their sake, I hope John Mayer and Katy Perry stay together forever. It’d be painful for the dumpee to stumble upon their “Who You Love” visual during a moment of weakness. That’s the sucky thing about appearing on-screen with your real-life lover. When things go bad, accidentally looking back at happier times could open a floodgate of tears. I know I would.

Mayer and Perry dropped by ABC’s Good Morning America to premiere the visual for “Who You Love.” Just like the track itself, the video is simplistic but beautiful and heartfelt. Directed by Sophie Muller (Rihanna “Stay”), it shows couples including John and Katy riding a mechanical bull in slow-motion. For me, the most beautiful moments are when Mayer and Perry look into each other eyes and sing. Either they’re really in love or fantastic actors. I’m thinking the former. Kate Winslet and Daniel Day Lewis they are not. Check out the video below.

VEVO Reveals The 10 Most Played Music Videos In 2013

Despite all the headlines and chart success, Miley Cyrus received no Grammy nominations. I guess all her antics scared off Academy voters. Here’s a small consolation prize for being snubbed.

VEVO recently released their annual list ranking the ten most played music videos of the year. In no shocker, Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” topped the list. After all, the clip generated 19.3 million views on its first day of release and was the fastest to be certified in VEVO’s history by reaching 100 million views within just six days. As of December 1, the much-spoofed clip stood tall with over 371 million views worldwide. Last year’s winner, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen notched 357 million clicks in 2012.

The most interesting part of the list is how a couple of leftovers from last year made the list. Both Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and will.i.am’s collabo with Britney landed in the Top 10. On the flip side, Katy Perry breaking the Top 5 is equally as impressive, given that “Roar” only premiered just in August. Check out below what other clips were extremely popular in 2013.

Months after “Who You Love” first surfaced online, John Mayer and Katy Perry finally got around to pose for their duet’s official artwork. Perhaps it was due to their busy schedules or their on-and-off again relationship status that kept them from being snapped by famed photographer Mario Sorrenti. Whatever the reason, at long last we have the stunning black-and-white photos to check out. It’s a beautiful way to commemorate their collaboration.

“If the music is framed correctly and quality. And if it’s right and the soul is there, it would be the highest compliment to the record if somebody said or people said, ‘I don’t even think about it being [about] a relationship, I just hear it as a great song,’” – John Mayer

Surprisingly, the beautiful ballad hasn’t done well on the main chart, but has managed to break the Top 20 on both Billboard’s Adult Top 40 and Rock charts. Hopefully, coming soon is a music video to accompany these gorgeous pics. Check out the photos below.
