In: Donovan, Music

With the late emergence of heat and sunshine here, it’s hard to tell that summer is winding down, but it is. The new television season is around the corner and so is the official start to Fall. With the season of beach and fun behind us, it’s time for Billboard Magazine to single out the tune that you just couldn’t shake out of your head this past summer. Last year, Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” took the honor and The Black Eyed Peas “I’ve Got A Feeling” and Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl” in 2009 and 2008 respectively.

With Katy Perry owning two out the three past summers with “California Gurls” and “I Kissed The Girl”, the singer was definitely looking to complete a hat trick. Sadly, she didn’t achieve that feat. That being said, Perry had the honor of placing two of her recent No. 1’s on the list. “E.T.” rose to No. 9 while “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” broke into the Top 5. Even Adele’s megahit “Rolling In The Deep” only managed to hit No. 3 on the seasonal chart. Had the British songbird’s track not been such a force earlier in Spring, she might’ve secured the top spot. At least she can take solace knowing she has the best-selling digital song of the year thus far. Find out which artist had the perfect combination of whimsy and hard-pounding beats to make the ultimate summer song.

Nicki Minaj & Rihanna “Fly” In New Music Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

What perfect timing for Nicki Minaj to release her music video for “Fly” on the day of the 2011 MTV VMAs in Los Angeles. The song (which I love) features Rihanna and I’m so glad that island girl was present in the video as well.

The video is set at the scene of a plane crash (get it…”Fly”) where Nicki pulls up in her ride, then checks out the wreckage. She wraps from the burning pieces as well as the wing of the plane. My guess is that part of the video was filmed at the plane crash site at Universal Studios. In true Minaj fashion, she sports several amazing wigs & outfits in the video.

Rihanna brings the flame to the crash site with her fiery red hair, walking & singing with Nicki partway through the video. So yeah, they don’t really “Fly” together as I may have led you to believe with my title, but hopefully you’ll settle for walking. To be honest, my favorite part of the video was actually seeing these two ladies walk side by side, considering they both have such a commanding presence.

David Guetta continues to pump out the hits with his big name collaborations. He has a new album coming out on August 30th called, “Nothing But The Beat,” and it is jam packed with stars including: Nicki Minaj, Flo Rida, Taio Cruz, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Usher, will.I.Am, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Akon, Timbaland, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, and Sia. Are you kidding me? This is epic!

So far, “Where Them Girls At” featuring Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida was the first single off the album and “Little Bad Girl”, featuring Ludacris and Taio Cruz, was released as the second single.

This morning, I was just listening to his collaboration with Usher called, “Without You” this morning and I love it! Also, his track with Jennifer Hudson called “Night Of Your Life” is HOT! You can listen to them both below. I am eagerly awaiting the full album. Enjoy the tracks below!

ANTM Reveals Guest Judges For All Stars Season

In: Donovan, TV Shows

A few months ago, we revealed the ANTM alums returning to smize their asses off for Tyra Banks’ amusement. Today, the CW officially announced this cycle’s contestants. The 14 girls coming back to to compete in ANTM Cycle 17’s All-Stars season are Shannon Stewart (Cycle 1), Camille McDonald (Cycle 2), Brittany Brower (Cycle 4), Lisa D’Amato (Cycle 5), Bre Scullark (Cycle 5), Bianca Golden (Cycle 9), Dominique Reighard (Cycle 10), Isis King (Cycle 11), Sheena Sakai (Cycle 11), Allison Harvard (Cycle 12), Laura Kirkpatrick (Cycle 13), Angelea Preston (Cycle 14), Kayla Ferrel (Cycle 15) and Alexandria Everett (Cycle 16).

The girls will once again be competing for a fashion spread in Vogue Italia and a $100,000 CoverGirl contract. New to the mix this year is an Express fashion campaign and a guest correspondent for Extra. Banks and company are billing this cycle’s goodies as a “career-launching” prize package. LOL.

As opposed to previous cycles where the contestants have been in the 18-24 range, the majority of the ANTM veterans are in their late twenties and early thirties. Both Jay Manual and Banks have stated that this cycle will focus on branding. In other words, the goal is to make the girls in mini-mogul brands like Tyrant herself. I can’t wait for the ridiculous challenges that lie ahead.

Out with the old and in with the new. And by old I mean Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper, and by new I mean Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin. The latter will be the new faces of MAC Cosmetics’ new Viva Glam ad campaign for 2012. The Viva Glam initiative has been very fruitful for the cosmetics brand and the charity it supports. Viva Glam’s lipsticks and lip glosses have raised over $200 million for the MAC AIDS fund. The foundation uses the monies raised to help with prevention, treatment and education of HIV and AIDS.

This isn’t the first time Minaj has been involved with MAC. Last year, she teamed up with the cosmetic company to release a limited edition lipstick, “Pink 4 Friday“. Reportedly, the lipsticks flew off the shelves. Based on this, enlisting Nicki for it’s new ad campaign should’ve been a no-brainer. You might think the addition of Martin seems a bit odd, but he’s the third man to front the campaign. The two previous male spokespersons were Elton John (2001) and Boy George (2004). Other celebrity faces previously featured include Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Fergie, Missy Elliott and Pamela Anderson.

Why anyone would want to on this radio show boggles my mind. This week, Lil Mama stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club in New York to sit down with the panel: DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God. Of course Lil Mama wanted to talk about music and her life, but the only thing they wanted to address were some of the accusations Lil Mama had apparently made in Vibe Magazine that Nicki Minaj copied her style and music. Fair enough – I can see why they’d want to addressed the juiciest gossip, but Charlamagne was just plain mean in other ways, taking away any credibility in my opinion.

He starts off by telling Lil Mama she has an old face – not an old soul, and old face, and essentially is suggesting that she’s ugly. “You might have Benjamin Button syndrome,” he says. He then emphasizes how she only has one album and hasn’t made music in ages (which is true). He goes on to bring up the VMA performance incident where she invaded Alicia Keys and Jay Z‘s performance and said she was “delusional as hell” to think she could be on stage with them and do that. Also kind of was kind of like Kanye stealing Taylor Swift’s moment. That aside, after Charlamagne keeps pushing and pushing, towards the end of the interview, she is brought to tears when she talks about trying to put an album out while her mother was dying of cancer. Watch the interview below.

MTV VMA 2011 Nominees Announced

In: Music, Patrick

We’re almost halfway through the summer, which means we’re getting closer to the 2011 MTV VMA Awards. This one is my favorite music awards show because it’s always the most entertaining. So many memorable moments take place at this show: Britney & Madonna kissed, Britney had her “Gimme More” train wreck performance, Brandy & Monica performed together (proving they weren’t feuding), Gaga wore a meat dress, and many more.

This year, it’s Katy Perry that is leading the pack of nominations. She has a total, of nine nominations which include “Video of the Year” and “Best Female Video,” for her explosive hit, “Firework,” “Best Pop Video” for “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)“, and “Best Special Effects” for her “out of this world” hit “E.T.” featuring Kanye West. Speaking of Kanye, he has the most nominations for a male artists with a total of seven (including the collaboration with Perry).

Check out the rest of the nominees below. I’ll tell you this much, it’ll be nice to have an award show that isn’t going to be dominated by Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga for once…

A few weeks ago Patrick, being the loving and romantic boyfriend that he is, surprised me with tickets to last night’s Femme Fatale Tour. To say I was excited was an understatement. I had seen Britney during her Circus Tour but with all the hype (and write ups from me) regarding this summer tour, I was bound and determined to see this one live. Before I get to Britney, I want to talk about the opening acts first.

Nervo, two sisters who DJ all the way from Australia kicked off the night with a set of rockin’ tunes as they mixed them in their own specific style. The two pumped up the crowd and were interactive on the mic getting the small but mighty crowd excited for the next act to follow.

As the arena began to fill up, our favorite girl Jessie and the Toy Boys took to the stage. After receiving a sneak peek at Celebrities on Thursday night, I thought I knew what to expect. However, Jessie and her two male dancers turned it up to leave an impressionable mark in a big arena. The crowd was really into her performance and sound screaming loudly as she broke into a dance break during her last song, Push It. Then, she announced that Nicki Minaj was about to come on and the crowd went bananas.
