  1. She wants to be back. Will Ford wants to be back. The blonde bombshell was one of the last pop girls of the early 2000's to make a name for herself. Her 2001 hit "I Wanna Be Bad" peaked at No. 22 on the Hot 100 and solidified her title as mainstream's rowdiest naughty girl (Xtina snatched that crown a year later with "Dirrty," but still). Then, radio silence. Literally. Ford had trouble keeping afloat as her fellow pop peers launched to superstardom. She attributes 9/11 as to one reason why things went south. “A lot of people don’t realize this, but my second single was released on September 11, 2001,” Ford tells Billboard in a new interview. “Everything that happened that day froze; the world stood still, as it should have. My second single didn’t do well because anything that launched that day kind of got canned.” Her sophomore album never saw the light of day. Well, it's 2017, and Willa wants back in. And she'll need the gays. Billboard mentions her fanbase is largely LGBTQ. "I know! I’m so grateful," she said. "So many of them are my loving gays -- they’re my ride or dies. I’ve had so many guys be like, “Listen, I figured out I was gay because I realized from your music videos I didn’t want to screw you -- I wanted to be you.” I have thought about coming back, and I know who my community was and who would embrace me. When I look at Kylie Minogue, she did [her comeback] really right. She did Loco-Motion, she went away for 20 years -- which is almost how long I’ve gone away -- and then she comes back with this amazing dance-pop record. For me it was groundbreaking in the states. I really do miss music. It’s my first passion, my first love." Billboard labels Willa "an icon for the LGBTQ community," which is news to me, but Willa has thoughts on this. "Part of it was image-based," she said. "People really didn’t think that we all liked each other, but I really did like all the girls. Britney Spears was really the first pop girl to launch, so you can’t touch that: Britney is iconic. Then you had Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore. Everyone was doing this squeaky clean image, and I was 21 coming out on a record like, 'This is not me.' I was on a record label with people like Kid Rock and Jason Flom, who in the business is amazing. He was the president of our record company. He got it that I was 21 and didn’t want to be a goody two shoes. He let me come out guns blazing and finding myself to be honest. I think what the community felt from that was an authenticity of 'I’m trying to figure out who I am,' and it’s okay to say, at the time it sounds cheesy, but 'I wanna be bad.' It was okay at that time -- we no longer had to keep the shutters on. We could come out and be like 'I want to go out one night, be this person and I don’t want anyone to tell me who I am.' I think that struck a chord with the [LGBTQ] community that maybe some music hadn’t yet. I think there was a message in that music. When 'I Wanna Be Bad' came out, people were more PC, and it was just a more honest song." Willa isn't quite sure when she'll make a comeback, but has plans to remain independent (label-less). "When it’s time, I’ll reach out to the right producers," she said. "I think I want to create the record on my own without a record company." Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  2. what kind of epicness
  3. SHOOK. Maluma and Justin Timberlake might have a song in the works. Over the weekend, Colombian superstar Maluma hit the recording studio with Timbaland. That's a really big deal, especially considering Maluma is aiming to crossover into the US music market – there's not many people that could help facilitate that better than Tim. Next in line to lend a hand? Quite possibly Justin Timberlake. Maluma shared a photo of him with JT today (July 25) and captioned it "Ahora sí puedo morir tranquilo," which means he can die happily now. As you're well aware, Timbaland and Timberlake have collaborated together on all of JT's solo records. Perhaps the two just ran into each other and there's no song in the works; the Felices Los 4 singer tagged the location of the photo to the Empire State Building. That just doesn't make sense. Why would JT and Maluma randomly hang out unless there's something in the works? JT is too busy golfing and being a dad. Right? RIGHT? See the snap below: Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  4. Gorgeous! Ashley Tisdale and Lea Michele transform Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" into a tender acoustic ballad. I'm not going to apologize for marking my calendar every month waiting for a new performance from Ashely Tisdale as part of her Music Sessions on YouTube. This year she's cranked out some big ones, including a cover of Elle King's "Ex's & Oh's" with bestie Vanessa Hudgens, Britney Spears' "Toxic", Julia Michaels' debut single "Issues", The Chainsmokers and Daya's Grammy Award winning song, "Don't Let Me Down", a duet of “What I’ve Been Looking For” with her High School Musical co-star Lucas Grabeel and teamed up with Debby Ryan to sing Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name.” Her latest is a cover of Swedish pop star Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" alongside Lea Michele. The ladies gab about their summer shenanigans before jumping into the sugary acoustic rendition; it's absolutely stunning. They ripped out Robyn's pulsating electro beat & twinkly production and caressed it with a gorgeous soft tone and extended breathy notes instead. Per usual, Tisdale's hubby Christopher French assists with a guitar. Watch below: Robyn's version: Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  5. I'm pretty sure it's fan made. IDK. It's legit though either way
  6. HDU!!!! Haha. For real though this one slays the orig
  7. The truth shall set you free? The truth shall set you free? Justin Bieber abruptly cancelled the remainder of his Purpose Tour on Monday. Paparazzi caught the pop star walking around in Santa Monica hours after the announcement and asked him point-blank why he decided to cut it short. “Everything’s fine. I’ve been on tour for two years. Yeah, just resting, getting some relaxation. Gonna ride some bikes,” he said. Biebs also offered an apology: “I love you guys. You guys are awesome. And I’m sorry for anybody who feels disappointed or like, betrayed. It’s not in my heart or anything.” Original reports claimed he was "just over it." TMZ is singing a different tune now. They're claiming via a source at the Hillsong Church that Bieber axed the final 14 shows because he's "rededicated his life to Christ." They're labeling it a "religious enlightenment." I'm having trouble finding the correlation, but sure. They also mention Bieber's tour crew is "incredibly pissed off at him" because they're losing out on income without any warning. I wonder what John Mayer has to say about this... Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  8. JT and chill. JT and chill. I bet you didn't wake up today expecting to jam out to a polished re-working of Justin Timberlake's *NSYNC's 2002 hit "Girlfriend" by remix artist Nick*, yet here you are. The remix is one of 10 new remixes from Nick* as part of his 2017 Summer series playlist. BreatheHeavy also covered his electro-tinged remix of Britney Spears' "Do You Wanna Come Over" – read more about that here. "I’ve always been a fan of NSYNC’s 'Girlfriend,' so when I got the opportunity to get the solo version Justin recorded on his own, I was extra excited," Nick* tells BreatheHeavy.com. "The song sounds really strange when you start messing with the tempo, so I left it at the original and built around [JT's] vocals while keeping some of the original synths for the B sections and bridge. I drew inspiration from the minimalist nature of The Neptunes who did the original." He adds: "sometimes it’s more about the space between the sounds more than what each sound is doing while it’s active. Working everything back and forth gave some stuttering that helps punctuate Justin’s vocals." It's definitely worth a listen. Check it out below: Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.

  9. For the outsiders. Artwork credit Not the cool kid in school? Kesha's got just the song for you. It's titled “Hymn For The Hymnless,” a track about feeling like an outside. According to the pop star, it should be out soon. "Coming soon are many things, amongst them is a song called hymn for the hymn less," she wrote on Instagram. "[It's] a song for anyone who ever didn't have a squad or a group or a place- or a hymn." She adds: "it's for all of us because you guys are my family and this can be our hymn !!! love all my animals !!!! i hope you love all the surprises coming soon." Fans were under the impression the track would debut last week, but alas... the Internet is a terribly wild and unpredictable place. Let's hope "Hymn" hits this week. Thoughts? Let us know in Exhale.
