    rumor Britney's Rumored 'Domination' Outfits Are NSFL

    If the first one had black pants then yes! The second is dope as is.
  2. Christina Aguilera's Liberation tour gross figures are in. 10 years passed since Xtina embarked on a tour, but the Fighter put on a brave face as she stepped back into the spotlight, and proved she's still got what it takes to put on a show. According to newly posted figures, Christina's 21-date North American Liberation Tour raked in $8.4 million with a total of 73,973 people attending. Very respectable and a promising sign that Legend X could extend the tour to other parts of North America or take it internationally. It's worth mentioning 12 of those shows were sold out. Her stint in Denver for whatever reason underperformed in comparison (4,069 attended out of a capacity of 9,500, but let's focus on the positives shall we?). Christina is headlining New Year's Rockin Eve. There are rumors she'll announce a world tour at that appearance. Related: Christina Aguilera Partners With Discount Grocery Store Lidl What are we to take away from this? Christina's presence in pop music was sorely missed, but more importantly... she proved there are songs to be sung and money to be made on tour. At the very least if CA decides not to extend the Liberation Tour, expect another one in the next year or two anyway. The pop star has stated on multiple occasions she wants to put out a new album, and soon. Her words (in capital letters) were exactly: “I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE ANOTHER 6 YEARS TO RECORD.” We're holding her to it! See you back on the road mama.
  3. Jennifer Lopez is under fire for allegedly stealing most of her biggest hits. By the books, JLo is one of the most commercially famous musicians of our time. She has a lengthy list of famous hits, and for those of you questioning that I challenge you to fire up Spotify and confirm you're not pretty (if not VERY) familiar with at least 10 of her songs. Alright, so we've established she's a bonafide recording artist, but how? That's the point of contention. Lopez's body of work is being questioned, and it's caused a sh!t storm on the Internet. A Twitter user by the name of @PallahAbdul has a bone to pick with the triple threat. They created a thread ripping apart the singer's singles, but it's not without merit. They provide receipts, and it's undeniable that Jenny from the Bronx had a one-up on the way to the top over most rising musicians. "There is not one JLO hit that isn’t a stolen song of another artists. Not ONE," @PallahAbdul wrote. They point out multiple instances where this is seemingly the case. Spoiler alert: if you like the illusion that is Jennifer Lopez™, stop reading now. Otherwise, carry on with this fascinating uncovering. "If You Had My Love" JLo's first single, "If You Had My Love" was directly inspired by singer Chanté Moore's song, "If I Gave Love." Diddy, who played a pivotal role in creating Lopez's debut album, requested Darkchild hand "If I Gave Love" over, but couldn't due to previous agreements. Instead he created a carbon copy, and when Lopez's version blew up Moore had no choice but to scrap hers. What does it all mean? This isn't a Jennifer Lopez takedown post. But it's fascinating that she has so many instances where a track is given to her, re-recorded, yet remains so close to the original. That's obviously problematic when she's making millions of dollars and creating ripples in the fabric of music, because that means those who helped her get there aren't seeing a fraction of that financial gain or the notoriety (or even gd credit, for that matter). PopCrush points out that this could be a matter of powerful men making "behind-the-scenes power moves to accomplish something that paid off for them in some way," but I can't chalk things up to that. Lopez has been and is still very much in control of her career, so to water down her success and hits in the biz to business men's executive decisions feels irresponsible. If that's true, she could care less where the hit comes from, as long as she gets it. Meaning, artistic integrity is nowhere to be found and she's playing to grab a spot on the Hot 100. It's a realization I'm not prepared to face quite yet. So if these men in suits aren't to blame... does that mean JLo is the mastermind behind this facade? Then she's responsible for cultural appropriation and sidelining a handful of talented black men and women for her benefit. No one wins here. Another important question to ponder is: despite how the songs landed in JLo's lap... would they have seen so much commercial success had she not recorded and released them? Does it matter if she did? How many other songs has she allegedly lifted that we don't know about? Look, her star power is undeniable, and adding that special ~Jenny from the Block~ touch certainly elevates a record that might've sat on the cutting room floor otherwise. Should she go out of her way to share the wealth, or is it just the name of the game? I guess we'll have to ask Mariah, Usher, Christina Milian, Kat Deluna, 3rd Party and Natasha Ramos.
  4. Ariana Grande's new song "Imagine" is a sweet tribute to her relationship with Mac Miller. Ariana's best-performing song ever, "Thank U, Next," is still topping the Hot 100, but the singer already has another new tune for us. It's titled "Imagine," presumably off the forthcoming Sweetener followup. It's worth mentioning Billboard says Sweetener is the number one album of the year. I love Ari, but I have to laugh. Related: Ariana Grande Wanted To Include ‘Crossroads’ In Her “Thank U, Next” Music Video Her latest release, "Imagine," is officially out. On it, denial rears its mysterious head. Denying your feelings for someone... too real. “A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence),” Grande explained on Instagram. “But for those of you asking about imagine: i would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance… ‘imagine’ = denial. hope that makes sense.” Related: ‘AG5’ Songwriter Says Ariana Grande Is At The Peak Of Her Powers On "Imagine," Ariana sings about a budding romance that's easy squeezy. The kind where being yourself is celebrated and getting to know the other person is a thrilling endeavor. It could very well detail the beginning of her relationship with Mac Miller. He had the word "Imagine" tattooed on his arm. Mac tragically died from an overdose in September. "Knew you were perfect, after the first kiss / Took a deep breath like, oooh," Ariana sings over icy production crafted by "Pop" Wansel and Happy Perez. There's also a rattling, ominous beat that plays a sharp contrast to Ariana's breathy vocals. At one point, Ari plays vocal gymnastics and hits some pretty stratospheric high notes that would make Mariah proud. "Feels like forever, baby, I never / Thought that it would be you / Tell me your secrets, all of the creep sh!t / That's how I know it's true." "Imagine" doesn't feel quite like the event that "Thank U, Next" was, but not every release needs to be some pop phenomenon. "Imagine" is low-key, and sometimes that's the best kind of love.

    Ariana Grande readies new song, "Imagine." [adinserter block="1"] Ariana's best-performing song ever, "Thank U, Next," is still topping the Hot 100, but the singer already has another new tune for us.

Related: Ariana Grande Wanted To Include ‘Crossroads’ In Her “Thank U, Next” Music Video Anyway, "Imagine" officially debuts at midnight EST on Thursday. “A lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth / exploring new independence),” Grande explained on Instagram. “But for those of you asking about imagine: i would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance… ‘imagine’ = denial. hope that makes sense.” Related: ‘AG5’ Songwriter Says Ariana Grande Is At The Peak Of Her Powers Check back Thursday for the new tune.

  8. Miley Cyrus is still finding her place in music, but the Internet never forgets. [adinserter block="1"] The pop star is currently making the rounds to promote the new Mark Ronson-assisted single, "Nothing Breaks Like A Heart." During several radio interviews, Miley opened up about her past and present state in music, including how her forthcoming album will sound. Miley confirms she's teaming up again with Mike Will Made-It, the executive producer of 2013’s Bangerz. “We’ve got songs with Mike Will that lean more hip-hop and songs with Andrew Wyatt that lean more pop/alternative,” Miley said. “I just have kind of everything.” Thoughts on Miley's outlook?

  9. Avril Lavigne has a broken heart in the song/video for "Tell Me It's Over." [adinserter block="1"] Avril Lavigne's album cover drama was digital whiplash. The singer revealed the artwork for her forthcoming record, Head Above Water, but the Internet torched it (including ya boy) so she deleted the entire thing off Instagram. It still exists on her other social platforms, so it's not clear where we stand – whether she's changing it or not – but let's take our focus off that editor's nightmare for a second and indulge in the singer's latest song and video for single No. 2, "Tell Me It's Over." Let's address the headline. Perhaps I instantly fell in love with "Tell Me It's Over" because of "Head Above Water." The melancholy mantra detailed Avril's resurgence after dealing with persistent health issues in recent years. "Tell Me It's Over" could very well be a chapter from Avril's personal life, but it's disguised with a soaring chorus backed by a sugary sweet guitar melody and throwback beat. I wish this was the first official release. "Tell Me It's Over" is also quite a sad song if you dissect it, but the production and Avril's powerhouse vocals pull the wool right over you. It's co-written with Ryan Cabrera. There's a new video for the track as well. In it, Avril and her significant other wrap their arms around one another in front of a Christmas tree, but those precious, sacred moments are rare. The video focuses on their dissolution and the singer's aching heart. "Tell Me It's Over" is a gem. Check it out below: Thoughts on Avril's new video? Leave a comment below!

  10. Do you think she knows people immediately unpitch these?
  11. Britney Spears made a welcome return to Instagram. Y'all, Britney's been real silent on the Gram recently. Queen didn't acknowledge Thanksgiving or her 37th birthday earlier this month. All we got was a quote from Pablo Picasso and a tilted photo of a Los Angeles sunset, but she's making up for lost time with several new posts. Poof, seemingly out of nowhere, Britney shared a new advertisement for her unisex fragrance, Prerogative. It appears she grew tired of the hair flipping dominatrix getup soundtracked to a bedroom banger, because Brit posted a clip in complete contrast. Instead, she unearthed footage reminiscent to her Intimate Collection days and posed in a bed of satin (like a slumber party). I don't quite understand why the bottle is propped up on pages of calligraphy, but I must say I'm impressed with Brit's handwriting. I paused the clip and zoomed in hoping to spot some B10 lyrics, but the words are a bunch of romantic mumbo jumbo. I'M LONELYYYY. The video is captioned, "Be free. Be fierce. Be you." The timing is curious (no pun intended). Fans just discovered Britney has plans to release another new fragrance in the new year. It's titled Rainbow Fantasy. Read more about it here. Hours later, it's Britney bitch-slapped us with a second video. It's a total 180. In the cute clip, our fav is singing "White Christmas," only her vocals are pitched to the high heavens and she's disguised as a Reign-deer. At one point during the performance, SnapChat spies a second face in Britney's neck (shook), but that doesn't phase Queen B. She's used to mid-show bobbles and decides to continue on anyway. It's also worth mentioning she changes the lyrics from "Where the treetops glisten and children listen To hear sleigh bells in the snow," to "Where the treetops glisten and children listen to me," I'm assuming Sean Preston and Jayden James are grounded af right now. I don't know why we haven't seen much of Britney's Instagram presence in recent weeks, but I'm so grateful she returned with a sample of sexy and another of sweet. Cause if I have to see one more behind-the-scenes photo of Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video, I'm going to scream. While I've got you... if you're just as fascinated by Britney's Instagram as I am, check out the Britneys Gram podcast. It's worth your undivided attention. Welcome back, Brit.
