  1. As she does, Rihanna stole the spotlight. Rihanna steals the spotlight on the new Ocean's 8 poster. You might be thinking that this is not a big deal, but britneyyourewrong.gif. It is. Rihanna is co-starring in the next Ocean's installment with Sandra Bullock, Kate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, and Helena Bonham Carter. That's why this this deserves to be spotlighted. Check out the new promo poster for the film. It's red-hot (see what I did there. Sigh). In the film, the ladies will attempt to con their way through a devious ploy set in New York City. If we're to guess whether they can pull it off judging from the new poster, my answer would be a yes. A resounding YES. Thoughts on the new poster? Leave us a comment below!

  2. Christina is about to break the Internet. Break the Internet, Christina. The Internet (including myself ugh) gives Christina Aguilera a hard time because she has promised for years that her album ~is coming soon~. It's kind of become an inside joke amongst her millions of fans, but it appears we're inching close to an actual era. The pop star has switched up her style, plumped up her lips and now has been spotted on a set. Xtina fans put on their detective caps and have reason to believe Christina participated in a photoshoot for Dazed magazine. Yes, it's a bummer that this wasn't for a music video / album shoot, but look at it this way... she wouldn't ready a new magazine shoot if it wasn't going to coincide with a release. Would she? It's also worth mentioning Dazed has been creating some pretty iconic covers over the last several years, so this should be an intriguing collaboration. Thoughts on Xtina's new shoot?

  3. Dua Lipa is breathing new life into her No. 1 song. Dua Lipa's got new records she'll count em. Dua is breathing new life into her No. 1 song. The British pop star was named Spotify's most streamed woman of 2017 in the UK, according to the music giant's year-end figures. Her track, "New Rules," helped Lipa leap in front of some of the world's biggest superstars, including Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Beyonce, who are also included in the U.K. most-streamed artists Top 5 list respectively. It's worth mentioning "New Rules" has been streamed more than 464 million times worldwide. To keep the momentum going, Lipa unleashed a lyric video for the track. Yes, it feels absolutely unnecessary – the timing is about five months too late. Even weirder... there's already an official video. Nonetheless, it's giving the track some extra gains, and that's important if Dua wants to keep her streaming title in the new year. Watch the neon-themed lyric video below. I also included the actual video afterward, because it's that good. Congrats, Dua! Thoughts on Dua's streaming title? Leave us a comment on our NEW comment system below!

  4. An early Xmas present. Yeehaw and Happy holidays! Christina Aguilera decided to gift us with an early Christmas present. It's a Boomerang posted as a story on Instagram of her, as the title suggests, dressed in a cowgirl outfit with her left breast out rocking a pink bedazzled nipple pasty. Why? It's a precious moment captured at her birthday party this weekend – the singer turns 37-years-old on Monday (Dec. 18). Only a legend. Leave Christina an early birthday message in the comments below!

  5. A huge fourth quarter. Looks like Taylor Swift will get to enjoy being No. 1 for one week. It's going to be a HUGE fourth quarter. Sam Smith will release The Thrill Of It All on Nov. 3. The following week belongs to Taylor Swift. She'll unleash Reputation on Nov. 10, which was poised to top the charts for the rest of the year. That will no longer happen. Word on the street is that Eminem is planning to release his forthcoming ninth studio album, a followup to 2013's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, on Nov. 17. That's some serious competition for Swifty. Eminem typically debuts with MASSIVE numbers, so expect him to block the pop star from a Billboard 200 reign. It appears we won't have to wait long for new tunes from Em. Pink's collaboration with the rapper on a track called "Revenge" off her forthcoming album, Beautiful Trauma, is thought to debut this Friday (October 13). Get your credit cards out, ladies. It's going to be a pricey couple of months. Thoughts on Eminem releasing a new record? Let us know in Exhale.

  6. Ciara heats up the holidays with a red-hot performance of a holiday classic. My body is feeling things. Ciara lit up the stage this week with a sultry performance of "Santa Baby" on Fox's special, Taraji’s White Hot Holidays. The singer croons through a hip-hop-tinged version of the holiday classic, offers sedutive stares, does the splits then kicks into a NSFL dance break that includes twerking and a lot of hip gyrating. It's the holidays done right. Watch below: At the bottom of 2017, Cici announced she signed to Warner Bros. Records and would begin creating her new album. It's been nearly a year, so let's hope she pulls through in 2018. I need another Jackie or nothing at all. Thoughts on Ciara's "Santa Baby" performance? Leave a comment below!

  7. I'm here for a performance with LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. Beyonce could be getting the band back together again at Coachella. Wait, you're probably thinking 'Beyonce already brought back Destiny's Child when she headlined the Super Bowl in 2013!' Right, but for Coachella the pop star could be taking that reunion up a notch. There's a rumor floating around that Queen Bey will also include original members, LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. Farrah Franklin will apparently still get the boot. How did this chatter come to be? As Idolator points out, there's a couple of clues the Hive have gathered to make sense of such a wonderful idea. It appears Beyonce is or has recently been rehearsing for Coachella in Indio, CA. One of her many new Instagram snaps looks like a grassy area at the location. This coincides with a post from Michelle Williams who shared a picture of her Super Bowl costume. Meanwhile, LaTavia threw fuel on the fire when she Tweeted: “I have so much to tell you guys!” she wrote. “All I’m allowed to say right now is… never mind.” Ugh. Then there's LeToya, who posted an old school pic of the group as kids. Hmmm... Keep in mind this is all speculative, but they BeyHive is RARELY wrong. Great thinking, Bey.

  8. When will your favs? Lady Gaga has never been better! Gaga is only a few months into her Joanne World Tour, which included postponing the European leg of the trek due to health complications, but she still holds the title for highest grossing tour by a female performer in 2017. That's according to data on Pollstar. They rank each artist by its average boxoffice gross per city worldwide and is based on information reported within the last three months. The latest data shows a tally for the week leading into Christmas. Overall, Gaga comes in at No. 4 behind The Rolling Stones, U2 and Coldplay, respectively. You can view the full list here. Gaga's tour has reportedly grossed a total of just under $75.8 million mark, though at the time of posting we could not verify that.   It's worth mentioning that the Internet is not entirely convinced of the accolade. Some are speculating that Celine Dion will be named the woman with the highest grossing tour instead. Others are curious where Adele's stadium shows fit. And then there's Katy Perry's Witness Tour, which does not make an appearance on the list at all - that is most likely due to her team not submitting the data. You can read between the lines for that. Regardless of the who's who, according to this chart, Gaga wins. Gaga always wins.

  9. An unexpected surprise. This was unexpected. I wouldn't have guessed Avril Lavigne and Bebe Rexha would team up for a song together, but it appears they have! According to a recent registry on ASCAP, Avril and Bebe are both performers on a song titled "In Touch." Related: Listen To Avril Lavigne’s Cover Of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” With Jonny Blu This track might land on Bebe's next project, not Avril's. Why's that? Bebe is credited as a songwriter on the track, and Avril isn't. The "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer has co-written every one of her songs off of all five studio albums, so it's unlikely she'll include a song that's not written by her on the forthcoming record. No matter where the song lands, I'm low-key here for it. Thoughts on a Bebe and Avril collab? Leave a comment below! And while you're at it... follow us on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.
  10. Shawn Mendes' Flaunt magazine photoshoot is the gift that keeps on giving. Shawn Mendes' Flaunt magazine photoshoot is the gift that keeps on giving. The pop star nearly broke the Internet last year when his shirtless photos hit last December, and it's apparently become a tradition. More photos from the shoot popped up on Shawn's million fan tribute accounts on social media, and they're causing quite the stir. You're probably not even reading what I'm writing, so take a peek at the photos below. There are more for your viewing pleasure here. Thoughts on the new outtakes? Leave us a comment below!

  11. We live in a world where Beyonce was second choice. We live in a world where Beyonce was a second choice. Eminem's Revival ballad, "Walk On Water," features the Lemonade singer, but it was originally meant for Adele. ThisIs50, D12 member Porter A.K.A. Kon Artis, revealed that Adele was originally meant to be on the track. Why did Adele's feature get axed? Porter said “something happened with her and her voice so she couldn’t do it”. You may recall Adele was forced to cancel her last remaining 25 Tour show dates because of complications with her vocal cords. That's when Beyonce's team got the call. “There’s only a couple people that could pull that off,” Porter added, and Eminem is one of them. Would you have preferred Adele on "Walk On Water" to Eminem?

  12. Eminem and Pink are vulnerable on their massive new song "Need Me." Eminem and Pink are vulnerable on new song "Need Me." This is a Revival highlight. Em's Pink-assisted new tune, "Need Me," could very well have landed on the pop star's recently-released record, Beautiful Trauma. He really lets Pink shine for much of the track before he ever makes an appearance. The singer takes on a massive chorus before inviting Em to harmonize with her. Some nights I want to run for the hills / It's never easy with you," they sing over Alex da Kid's pounding drums. "I cannot reason with you / But your smile is as rare as it comes./ What would I do without that? / Maybe that's why I come back / Oh, what I wouldn't do for you!" Em singing with his counterpart is a pretty rare occurrence, and it's brief. He eventually swings in with a fiery verse. "Startin' to think we were made for each other / But one of us in this relationship is raisin' the other / You remind me of my mother / We drive one another crazy as each other." The two teamed up together on Beautiful Trauma track, "Revenge," but it just didn't connect the way I had hoped. Pink seems to agree. She shot a video for the song and decided to scrap it. "Need Me" is better suited and a huge step forward. Let's hope this gets an official single treatment. Listen below: Thoughts on "Need Me?" Leave us a comment below!

  13. Iggy and Zedd's new song will get all up in ya face. Iggy got it got it. Once upon a time, Iggy Azalea was under the impression she would be able to release her album Digital Distortion. The Australian rap star recorded some serious bangers, like "Team," "Mo Bounce" and "Switch" featuring Anitta. She also teamed up with super-producer Zedd at some point and recorded a monster. A one-minute preview hit the net back in October, but the full thing has arrived. It's titled "Boom Boom" and is featured on the soundtrack for Pitch Perfect 3. There's a singing feature on it, but that's not Iggy; she sticks to rapping. "I got that boom boom all up in your face," she spits over Zedd and D.R.U.G.S.' bombastic production. The lyrics don't make much sense, but it's a banger. In an interview with Beats 1 earlier this year, Zedd said the collaboration was "one of the most creative songs I’ve ever created." It's really a shame what happened to Iggy this year. Let's pray 2018 treats her a lot better. Listen to "Boom Boom" below: Thoughts on "Boom Boom?" Leave a comment below!

  14. The singer has dropped one pop gem after another. "Faded" is no exception! Get faded with Kim Petras. It feels like Kim came out of left-field this year, and I'm so glad she did. The singer has dropped one pop gem after another. Kim built a shrine to Paris Hilton in her sugary gem "I Don't Want It All" then cooled off on her dreamy tune "Slow It Down" (read more about that here - Kim graciously gave us an interview about it). Next up is the robotic synth cut "Faded," featuring rapper Lil Aaron. Her latest is no exception to the rule - she nails it. "Why they always want my time / Yeah like we can rewind," Kim sings over a quirky beat and light production. "And I ain't gonna lie / I'm faded out my mind." For Lil Aaron's part, he raps about coping with fake friends. "Yeah, I stay faded only smoking A-graded / Everybody fake as fuck so I been self medicatin' / I'm the greatest that there was and still the most underrated / That shit ain't up for discussion or debatin'." Another hit from Kim! I'm looking forward to see what Kim has to offer in the new year. Give this a spin below: Thoughts on "Faded?" Leave a comment below!

  15. Lol at Planet Hollywood losing Britney and JLo. Jennifer Lopez's All I Have show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas will come to an end in September, 2018. The pop star kicked things off in early 2016, and by the time she wraps next year, she'll have performed 125 shows for over 300,000 people, E! News reports. Here's a cookie-cutter statement from the pop star about this: "Performing 'All I Have' in Vegas over the last few years has been an incredible and rewarding experience that I won't soon forget. Some of the best memories on stage from my career will forever be equated with this city. Thank you to all my fans who traveled far and wide to experience the show with me." This is what you need to know (via E!). "Tickets will go on sale to the public Friday, Dec. 15, at 10 a.m. PT. American Express card members can buy tickets before the general public starting Monday, Dec. 11, at 10 a.m. PT through Thursday, Dec. 14, at 10 p.m. PT. An exclusive presale for Total Rewards members will be available from Wednesday, Dec. 13, at 10 a.m. PT through Thursday, Dec. 14, at 10 p.m. PT."

To us, they're two of the most influential, untouchable pop stars in the world. To each other, they're best friends. Selena Gomez posted a touching tribute for Taylor Swift on Instagram on Wednesday (Dec. 12), Taylor's 28th birthday. The Revival singer shared a looping video of them goofing off and had a sugary sweet message about Tay, for all of us. In short, Swift is not the person we've made her out to be. Related: Taylor Swift Just Achieved Two MAJOR Musical Milestones "I’m glad you were born. You write all the thoughts some aren’t able to articulate. (ME!)," Gomez wrote. "Thank you for giving a voice to this world that is authentic and inspiring. I wish some knew how big your heart actually is.. it’s fierce, bold and freaking wild with light. I’m glad you protect that. Love you @taylorswift" It's 2017 where the world seems as if it's perpetually imploding. Posts like these are not only encouraged, but needed. I'm feeling emotional.

  17. Coming for the pop princess crown. Slip under with Camila Cabello and Grey's intoxicating new song, "Crown." Camila recently announced her self-titled album hits January 12, 2018, but before her self-reflective new LP hits, the pop star has one more gem up her sleeve. It's titled "Crown" and serves as one of the soundtrack staples for Netflix’s Bright. "I’m running for the crown / Running for the crown," she sings over the production duo's otherworldly background. "So hit me on, hit me on my bones When I'm sitting on, I'm sitting on my throne / I'm running for the crown." "Crown" is a shiny jewel in the gritty pop landscape. The slinky song probably won't get much love besides from its official release today (Dec. 15), but it should. Camila's breathy croons and Grey's masterful production, namely their monstrous breakdown interjected halfway through, deserves to be heard by the masses. This is a big one.

  18. Treat yo self! It's Kish, bitch! We're officially in the thick of the holiday season, but let me guess... your procrastinating ass has waited until the eleventh hour to buy friends and family gifts and/or you made a valiant attempt at buying presents only to TREAT YO SELF. I can't say I'm any different (OK, I am speaking from personal experience and I hate myself for it). But no worries, we've got you. BreatheHeavy is casting a special spotlight on Kish Canvas' hand painted merch. I rocked one of their T's for my Most-Played Songs on Spotify in 2017 post and received an overwhelming amount of messages asking where I got my shirt. HERE. I GOT IT HERE. STOP SLIDING INTO MY DMS (keep sliding into my DMs plz). What do you need to know? Kish's Online Store: KishSCanvas.com Instagram: @Super.Kish The hand painted-printed Britney shirts are selling like hot cakes. The world of Britney is closing in on these special, one-of-a-kind Ts. Britney's Piece Of Me backup dancer Brandon, the QUEEN of Britney impersonators, Derrick Barry, and I rock one religiously to honor the Holy Spearit. One flawless member of the Britney Army loved the artwork so much they got a tattoo of it. See them on KishSCanvas.com. Receipts below: Merry Britmas, and happy spending!
  19. Ask and you shall receive! Ask and you shall receive! Ariana Grande was trolling through some fan accounts on Instagram and saw a picture she believes is either fake or very old of "her" in the recording studio. "I'm pretty sure dis is very old or fake," Ari wrote on the photo in question in a story on Insta. "If u wanted confirmation I've been workin why didn't you jus ask?" She decided to take matters into her own hands and share an actual snap of her working on new tunes, as well as a sparkly video. Hows about a song preview next, Ari? I asked! What do we know about Ari's Dangerous Woman followup? For starters, she had said ages ago it was "done." That's clearly untrue, which is very exciting that Ari has decided to continue developing it. the record will most likely contain around 10 songs in total. “The label was like, ‘please try to keep it to 15 tracks,’ and I was like, 'I have 25,' and they were like, ‘not gonna happen,’” she told fans in a Q&A this past summer. “I think the next one I’m gonna make it shorter. I’m gonna make it like 10 just to make it count.” One of those 10 tracks could feature production from Yung Berg A.K.A. Hitmaka. He's responsible for Big Sean's "Bounce Back," Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill's "Buy A Heart," Chris Brown, Usher & Gucci Mane's "Party," Lil Wayne and Rick Ross' "John" and many more. The producer recently opened up about that in a new interview – you can watch that here. Are YOU excited for Ariana's new album? Leave us a comment below!

  20. Taylor is paying her Ed Sheeran & Future-assisted banger "End Game" some serious dust. Swifties have a serious bone to pick with Taylor. She's paying her Ed Sheeran & Future-assisted banger "End Game" some serious dust. Instead of setting her sights on releasing that as the next Reputation single, the pop star is breathing new life into "...Ready For It?" A few weeks ago Taylor dropped the Bloodpop remix on us. On it, the producer strips out the original's fury for something tropical and light. Usually I hate that, but it just goes to show how strong Swift's songwriting is; the lyrics pair nicely to a fiery beat or something sweet. It kind of feels unnecessary, but "Ready" is my most-played song on Spotify this year so I am contractually obligated to limit any complaints I might have. Related: Taylor Swift Just Achieved Two MAJOR Musical Milestones As if the re-working wasn't enough, Swift uploaded a lyric video for it onto her official YouTube channel. In a few hours the remix racked up several hundred thousand plays, because of course it did. Reputation is a pop masterpiece, so it's confusing why she'd want to extend the single's reign with projects like this. Perhaps she wants to milk each release until it's bone dry to extend this era for as long as possible, which I'm not mad at. In case you don't know the words to "Ready" yet, here's the lyric video for the Bloodpop remix I've been blabbing about: Thoughts on the lyric video? Leave us a comment below!

  21. Keaton is a viral sensation because of his honest and emotional reaction to getting bullied in school. Keaton Jones is a viral sensation because of his honest and emotional reaction to getting bullied in school. Keaton's mom posted a video of her son crying because kids in school bullied him. It's worth mentioning it was Keaton's idea to be filmed and share his story. The youngster says they made fun of his looks, but he stood strong and relayed a powerful message: bullying is NOT OK. “Just out of curiosity, why do they bully?” he asks tearfully. “What’s the point of it? Why do they find joy in taking innocent people and find a way to be mean to them? It’s not OK. “People that are different don’t need to be criticised about it. It’s not their fault. If you are made fun of, just don’t let it bother you.” In just a few short days, the clip has been viewed more than 22 million times and caught the attention of some of the world's biggest music superstars, including Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and many more. UPDATE: As there typically is, a plot twist has since been uncovered. It appears that Jones' mom Kimberly is racist and an opportunist. Her Facebook account featured several photos of her posing next to the Confederate flag. She also created a GoFundMe page which has already collected more than $60,000 and plans on using that money to buy her family Christmas gifts. I just don't know what to think.

  22. Justin gave Beliebers an early Xmas present. Justin Bieber gave Beliebers an early Xmas present. The pop star uploaded a couple of very important clips onto Instagram. Two of them are of the Biebs dancing to Ed Sheeran's "Perfect." The two have some lengthy musical-ties together (in case you've been living under a very large rock or actually have a life, Ed is responsible for writing Bieber's No. 1 song "Love Yourself"), so this makes complete sense. But that's not why you're here. You're reading this thirst-trap post because Bieber also shared a video of himself decorating a Christmas tree without a shirt, and without Selena Gomez. I know I sound like a 90-year-old creep for a moment (that's the real me), but those khaki pants fit quite nice. Indulge below: Thoughts on the Biebs new posts? Leave us a comment below!
