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.

songs-for-philippines-charity-album

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan where thousands of lives were lost, the recording industry is banding together to raise money for the relief efforts. The three major record labels- Sony, Warner Music and Universal- created a compilation album titled Songs for the Philippines. It features 39 hit songs from some of the biggest names in the business.

Spanning multiple genres, you’ll find music from Justin Timberlake, Bob Dylan, Josh Groban, P!nk, Madonna and countless others. While some tracks like “Carry On” by Bruno Mars, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson and “Brave” from Sara Bareilles feel appropriate, others seem out of place. “Best Song Ever” by One Direction and “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull and Christina Aguilera have me scratching my head. Oh well, I suppose casting the net a little wider doesn’t hurt. It’s nice to see artists with Filipino heritage also taking part, including Jessica Sanchez, Black Eyed Peas’ apl.de.ap and Mars.

All the artists, record companies and music publishers working on the project have waived fees. The compilation album is available on iTunes for only $9.99 with all proceeds being donated to the cause. Even if you have several of the tracks already in your music collection, I urge you to purchase the album. It’s a small price to shell out to help so many. On a day where many of us have so much to be thankful for, it’s nice to think of others who are less fortunate. If you want to donate more, there’s a link to the Red Cross from iTunes.

2013-amas-performances-winners

The 41th annual American Music Awards took place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre Live on Sunday night with Mr. Worldwide aka Pitbull hosting. Random choice, right?

Heading into the evening, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had the most nominations with six. Even though they nabbed two AMAs, Taylor Swift was the big winner of the night. The 23-year-old singer won four awards – Artist of the Year, Favorite Country Female Artist, Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist, and Favorite Country Album for Red. It was her third time winning the year’s top prize!

The top male dog was Justin Timberlake who walked away with three statues. Other multiple winners were One Direction and Rihanna. The AMAs bestowed the latter with their first ever Icon Award which was presented to her by her mom. Adorable.

With regards to performances, Lady Gaga in my opinion stole the show alongside R. Kelly with their sexually-charged tribute to JFK and Marilyn Monroe. Other memorable highlights include Katy Perry’s Japanese-themed “Conditionally” number, DWTS’ Maks Chmerkovskiy tossing around J. Lo during her Celia Cruz homage, Miley Cyrus being accompanied by a giant kitty and Christina Aguilera’s beautiful duet with A Great Big World.

On the flip side, I was underwhelmed with both Ariana Grande and TLC. The former was fantastic vocally but a tad boring, while the latter served practically zero energy during their “Waterfalls” performance with Lil Mama subbing in for the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Check out all the performances and winners below.

Katy Perry Debuts Striking Video For Unconditionally

In: Donovan, Music

Thankfully, Katy Perry has forgone her usual campy antics and gone the glamourous route for her new visual. This refined sophisticated style suits her much more. If I never see those peppermint candy breasts spin again, I’ll be one happy man.

Inspired by period pieces like Dangerous Liaisons, director Aya Tanimura gives us a beautiful world filled with an elaborate ball with time-period appropriate choreography, a gorgeous owl flying in slow motion and Perry battling the elements while looking stunning the entire time. At one point, she’s even bursting into flames. Forget Katniss Everdeen or Alicia Keys, this girl is on fire.

“Yes, unconditional love sometimes feels like being hit by a car… Or being on fire… How does it feel to you?” – Katy tweeted about the video

As previously predicted, “Unconditionally,” is hands down her best music clip to date. Check out her striking new vid below.

Katy Perry switches gears for her new clip. She’s forgoing the camp and cheese found in “Roar” and going the glamorous route. “Unconditionally” could possibly be her best video to date. It evokes luxury to the max with it’s Great Gatsby-like vibe. Baz Luhrmann would be proud of all the excess. Plus, I’m a sucker for animals in slow-motion. That’s what made Drake & Rihanna’s “Take Care” visual so captivating. Katy features a stunning owl flapping its wings. Check out the 45 second preview below.

Glee: Watch All The Katy Perry & Lady Gaga Covers

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I just got around to watching Glee’s latest episode now. I ended up going out way too late last night. Nic was back in town, plus Brian had a colleague visiting as well. Naturally, I had to play host and head out on the town. Always a team player ;)

Based on the ratings last night, not many of you caught “A Katy or A Gaga.” The Fox show tied a series low. In all honesty, this season is a little off. Mostly likely due to the untimely death of Cory Monteith. I haven’t been at all engaged with any of the storylines. I tune out for most off the show with exception to the musical performances. They’re the best part of the show.

Last night’s “Roar” and “Applause” covers were hilarious and sexy. The facial reactions of the cast plus the shirtless moments of Jacob Artist, Blake Jenner and Chord Overstreet made them thoroughly entertaining but for very different and obvious reasons. Check them out below.

Katy Perry scored her second No. 1 album of her career. Prism moved 286,000 copies, making it the largest sales week this year for a female artist. It sneaked past Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz which debuted with 270,000. Prism’s first week total also beat her previous album, Teenage Dream, which notched 192,000 units back in 2010.

Also making a Top 10 debut this week were Simon Cowell’s Fifth Harmony. The quintet sold 28,000 copies to land at No. 6. It’s pretty impressive given they only had an EP with six songs, two of which were released months ago. As sad as it is, they’re the highest-charting act born from the U.S. edition of The X Factor. Emblem3 who released a full-length album earlier this year landed at No. 7. Not a bad start for the ladies. Check out a recent performance of them covering Spice Girls below.

If there is one thing Glee always gets right, it’s their video spoofs. Based on preview pics for “A Katy or A Gaga,” Ryan Murphy and company nailed both “Roar” and “Applause” homages. The picture alone of Artie (Kevin McHale) swinging on a vine in his wheelchair already had me chuckling. Meanwhile, the visual of Sam (Chord Overstreet) wearing Victoria’s Secret Fashion show-worthy wings while shirtless had me excited for another reason ;)

When Glee returns on November 7, both the gang in Lima and New York explore who they are as artists. They go on this journey of discovery using, naturally of course, the music of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. If that wasn’t enough gay for a Thursday evening, Adam Lambert makes his debut during this episode. Glambert, Gaga and Perry oh my. Check out more preview pics below.
