10 Pop Artists That’ll Make You Feel Like A Tween Again

Last week, we introduced you to some awesome up-and-coming indie bands you should start listening to STAT.

Listen Up: Nicki Minaj’s New Ballad, “Pills N Potion,” Will Give You Life

I’ve always been a little meh on Nicki Minaj, but today the rapper dropped a ballad that is knocking my socks off. “Pills N Potion” is an uplifting, but not-even-remotely cheesy love song directed at her haters and will be featured on Nicki’s upcoming album The Pink Print. “Swearin’ on the Bible that they love you but they’re no different from all your rivals / but I don’t wish death on ‘em, I just reflect on ‘em,” Minaj raps on the pared-down track, giving fans a taste of what they can expect from her next effort. I LOVE it. Listen below! [Rolling Stone]

Lana Del Rey Is A Two-Timing Vixen In New Video For “West Coast”

Lana Del Rey Is A Two-Timing Vixen In New Video For “West Coast”
"Ooh, baby, ooh, baby, I'm in love..."

Seems like Lana Del Rey has traded her signature hair-sprayed bouffant for a headful of relaxed beach waves in the video for “West Coast,” the first single off Ultraviolence, her much-anticipated sophomore album.

The primarily black-and-white clip features Lana frolicking on the beach with a couple of gutter punks intercut with footage of the pop singer lounging with a MUCH older man in the back seat of a convertible. Directed by Vincent Haycock (Florence Against The Machine, Calvin Harris), the video then ends with overlapping color video of Lana being burned alive while wearing what looks to be a red Jessica McClintock, scalloped, off-the-shoulder prom dress.

Miley Cyrus Puts Duct Tape & Mud On Her Boobs In Artsy, S&M-Inspired Video
Watch "Miley Cyrus: Tongue Tied"!

Miley Cyrus has been laying low these last few weeks, due to a recurring illness and a bad reaction to meds forcing her to cancel a bunch of tour dates. But there’s always more Miley to be had. She just released “Miley Cyrus: Tongue Tied,” an S&M-inspired video filmed for her tour by fashion photographer Quentin Jones, featuring the singer in various states of undress, her nipples covered by duct tape and, at times, being slathered in mud. I actually think it’s really beautiful and cool-looking, especially the moments where it looks like flower petals or feathers are exploding from her eyes. Neato. Watch above!
