After SO much anticipation, the Super Bowl happened and Madonna‘s Half Time show did not disappoint at all! TOUCHDOWN! Sure, there may have been some (or a lot of) lip synching and maybe even a little stumble at one point, but overall it was incredible. In my own mind, she sent a very clear message to all who have compared her to Gaga: “Do you know who I am? I am the Queen of Pop. I run this mother.” Literally, I had chills.

Madonna is a brilliant business woman in how she is able to evolve her music and her career, utilizing the people that are current to her advantage (Nicki Minaj, M.I.A., Cee-Lo Green, and LMFAO). It reminds me of when she peformed with Britney, Christina and Missy at the MTV Music Awards. It was incredible and she certainly has once again raised the bar for future performers. What she did with the lights, the marching band, and the choreography was bang on.

One of my favorite parts was “Like A Prayer,” making me reflect on how Madonna has continued to push the boundaries of pop music in her career and who has long been such a gay icon… and now here she is at 53 years-old having the time of her life. That’s when the chills really kicked in. Watch the performance (again) below.

Marilyn Monroe is definitely the flavor of the month. From a feature film, to several artists singing about her, she has seemed to become LA’s latest fad. Recently, Jessie and the Toy Boys and a song leak about Marilyn Monroe and now, Nicki Minaj has a new track circulating on the web.

Titled Marilyn Monroe, Nicki takes a much more introspective look into her own life and career than we are used to hearing from the quirky rapper, mainly because she doesn’t rap at all- she practically sings the entire track. It’s still unknown if this track will appear on Nicki’s upcoming Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded but if so, it’s a step in a great and exciting direction. Listen to the newly leaked track below.

American Idol 11: St. Louis Auditions

In: Adam, TV Shows

THE AUDITIONS ARE FINALLY OVER!! Well, after this final review that is. Typically, the loyal viewers of Idol fall into two groups: those who like the try outs and those who prefer to jump on the wagon once the messes have been sorted. I have always been one to like finding the stars early, before the producers, stylists and makeup men and ladies take hold and change everything about them. So, as we hit the final audition city of St. Louis, I have high hopes that maybe SOMEthing worth a snuff will show up.

A pretty established city for talent and performers who do well enough in past seasons, I’m slightly optimistic going into this but considering the awfulness of the last 6 cities (save for Galveston), that optimism is VERY limited. So, let’s take a deep breath, take a few shots of whatever says at least 80 proof and dive into this the final night of what might go down as the lamest series of auds ever recorded.

If you watched “American Idol” last night, you saw a 90-second preview of Madonna’s upcoming music video for “Give Me All Your Luvin’“. If not, then you can catch the full version right here. How is it? Simply put, it is fantastic and has the potential of being one of Madonna’s better visuals. It’s her just having fun and no pretension in sight. The second the preview ended, I wanted more. That side-walking camera angle was brilliant. Thankfully, the full-length clip has now been released.

Firstly, Madonna looks absolutely amazing. The singer may be 53-years-old, but she doesn’t look a day over 40. Talk about the magic of good lighting. When I first heard the song, I wasn’t going crazy over it like so many people. That said, video has made me fall in love with the track. That speaks volumes on exactly how Madge has masterfully used the music video medium to define her career. Definitely one of the pioneers.

For their parts, both Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. look great as well. The latter usually looks unpolished, but she’s got it going on here. Props to both of them for showing respect to Madge by staying back and just cheering her on.

Top 10 Most Desirable Women Of 2012

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Although most of us are probably more interested in the most desirable men of 2012, we can all appreciate the beauty of Hollywood’s most stunning women. Popular men’s site, has just released their extensive list of their Top 99 picks for the “Most Desirable Women of 2012,” as voted by their readers. Of course I’m not going to rehash their entire list, but I thought I’d share the Top 10 list with you. “The ladies of 2012 aren’t just the next pretty faces: They’re smart, strong women who offer the complete package,” says

Last year, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively topped the list as most desirable. This year, she’s not in the top 10 anymore and the number 3 on the list from last year has become numero uno. Some famous names include Glee’s Lea Michele at number 19, Gaga at 18, as well as Katy Perry at 16, falling from number 8 last year. It may seem that many guys like them young, with 21-year-old Emma Watson at number 17 and 19-year-old Selena Gomez at number 14, but the woman who came out on top is 39 years old. Find out who the guys are drooling over most by checking out the Top 10 list below.

Channeling Frankenstein’s monster, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj tell quite the story in their new Turn Me On music video. David plays the role of a mad scientist who is creating Nicki, he turns out to be one of his most beautiful creations. Once alive, Minaj takes a stroll through the village and all the others (who are more mannequin-like) don’t approve. Cue the witch-hunt.

While I love that the music video is very effects driven, I feel like they rushed through the storyline and should have extended the song and video to really tell the whole story. However, one of the highlights is when the female mannequins strip off Guetta’s flesh revealing his chainmail body frame. Wow. Guetta’s packing quite the body at 43-years-old. However, as a whole, the teasers made me want more from this video. Check it out below.

Nicki Minaj Drops “Stupid Hoe” Video

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

Before Christmas, Nicki Minaj dropped the ultimate diss track on all her haters titled Stupid Hoe. I can’t help but think that more than 75% of the disses are aimed at long time enemy, Lil Kim. Now, the track has received the video treatment and while it’s simpilar than a lot of her previous videos, it hits the nail on the head and I love it.

With a little help from Hype Williams, the vibrant and colorful palette of the video really showcases Minaj’s crazy sense of style and musicology. From the opening sequence of watching her lips and background change color to the rapper working it out in a bright yellow cage meant for tigers, there is no question that Minaj is the reigning Queen of Rap right now. As she puts it in one of her lyrics, “I’m Angelina, you Jennifer – c’mon b*tch, you see where Brad at.”

This track is set to appear on Nicki’s new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded which hits shelves on Valentines Day. How appropriate. Until then, enjoy the flashy Stupid Hoe video below.

Beyonce Reveals Her 10 Favorite Songs of 2011

In: Donovan, Music

It seems like everyone and their dog has a year end list these days. Why should celebrities be immune to succumbing to this trend and not share their favorites via a Top 10 list? Since Beyonce is major preggers right now and probably bored out of her mind, she decided to occupy herself by compiling her favorite 10 songs of 2011. According to a post on her official website, the “Irreplaceable” singer just couldn’t get enough of these tracks.

I have to admit the list sorta surprised me. The list is far more hip-hop than I would’ve expected. Sure, it includes her hubby Jay-Z but a few other rappers as well. Apparently, Bey has a major hard-on for Lil Wayne– he made the list three times. Someone sure likes to get their swagger on. That said, the list also included a few R&B tracks and a couple of surprises. Even Beyonce couldn’t leave Adele off her list. Because if she did, that would be some serious haterade. See what dominated the former Destiny’s Child singer’s iPod this past year. Speaking of DC, one of her bandmates also made the list. Find out who below.
