Miley Cyrus Twerks With Madonna, Sings Countrified Versions Of Her Songs On “Unplugged”

Miley Cyrus Twerks With Madonna, Sings Countrified Versions Of Her Songs On "Unplugged"
It's Miley & Madonna!

I have lots of problems with Miley Cyrus, namely her at-times idiotic behavior, but I find her music fun and enjoy her voice, especially when it’s been stripped down. I loved her pre-Bangerz, “Backyard Sessions” phase, when she covered songs like “Jolene,” her voice rich and clear as a bell. Last night, “Unplugged: Miley Cyrus” aired on MTV and featured a somewhat in-between version of Miley — both the country girl and the hip-hop-loving goofball. Clad in a gingham onesie, with a plush horse mascot by her side, Miley sang countrified versions of songs like “Do My Thang,” “Wrecking Ball,” and “Rooting For My Baby.” She was also joined on stage by none other than Madonna, and the two duetted on a mashup of Madge’s “Don’t Tell Me” and Miley’s “We Can’t Stop.” Obviously, there was still some twerking involved. If you can put aside their collective asshole-ish-ness, it’s actually pretty fun. Watch their duet above and a few other clips after the jump! [MTV] Keep reading »

Listen Up: Lea Michele Releases Catchy New Song, “What Is Love?”

Listen To Lea's New Song!

I know a ton of people who find Lea Michele annoying, and, okay, I kind of get it. But, you have to admit: the girl can SING. And to tease her debut solo album, Louder, which comes out on March 4, the “Glee” star is revealing a new track every Tuesday for our listening pleasure.

But this week, Tuesday came early. Last night, Lea revealed “What Is Love?” a few days prematurely, which joins “Louder,” “Battlefield,” and her first single, “Cannonball.” I kind of love it. I have a feeling I’ll be buying this album.

Take a listen above and let us know what you think!

Watch: Patti Smith Covers Rihanna’s “Stay” As Only She Can

Watch: Patti Smith Covers Rihanna's "Stay" As Only She Can
“I will now sing to you the 2013 song of the year."

This video, while a little less than a month old, brought me joy on this snowy Tuesday afternoon. Back on December 30, during her 67th birthday concert in New York City, the legendary Patti Smith played a cover of Rihanna’s “Stay,” calling it the song of 2013. Naturally, she sang it in her own bizarrely beautiful way. Love. [Cover Me Songs]

This Busta Rhymes/Azealia Banks Remix Of Beyonce’s “Partition” Is Grimy Good

I’m not saying Beyonce’s original needed to be fucked with, but this remix, featuring Busta and Azealia’s even more explicit rhymes on top of “Partition”‘s sparse beat, is a fine addition to your mega Yonce playlist. Hot. [Fader]

The latest in Beyonce’s “Self-Titled” video series has Bey discussing her latest album‘s overall theme: honesty. Bey gets real about a topic I imagine a lot of pop stars who became famous at a young age must tackle — allowing your music and message to grow up with you and your fans. Beyonce was 15 when Destiny’s Child’s first album was released. Now in her 30s, Bey says that after over a decade of being mindful of her younger audience, she feels she’s earned the right to be honest in her music about her real experiences and feelings as a grown woman. It seems to me like Beyonce’s “Sasha Fierce” alter ego allowed a sexier side of her to come out on previous records, but Beyonce is the first time the singer is exposing all of her different sides without a protective veneer. And her music thrives as a result. [YouTube]

In Her Latest Video, Beyonce Discusses Motherhood, Sex & Exploring Her Fantasies On “Partition”

"This whole movie played in my head..."

In the fourth installment of her “Self-Titled” series explaining the making of her latest album, Beyonce gives us a peek into the thought process behind one of her hottest songs ever, “Partition.” Bey talks about inviting all of the songwriters she was working with to hang with her family at a house in the Hamptons, taking a couple hours a day to record and the rest of the time being a mother, “breastfeeding with cornrows in my hair.” Bey used the studio as a place to rediscover the other parts of herself that had been kind of sidelined by the welcome arrival of little Blue. “Just because you become a mother, doesn’t mean that you lose who you are,” she says.  Keep reading »

Listen To 56 Pop Songs In Just 10 Minutes

The Mashup Of All Mashups

2013 was a pretty memorable year for pop music, especially if you had lots of opinions on blurred lines and riding a wrecking ball naked. In case you need a recap of pop radio in 2013, musician Robin Skouteris made a mashup of this year’s top 56 songs and their videos. It exhaustively clocks in at just under 10 minutes! IMHO, the Katy Perry “Roar”/Taylor Swift “Trouble” part is the best. (Thanks, commenter LR52185!) [YouTube]

In “Self-Titled #3,” Beyonce Talks About The Making Of “Drunk In Love”

The third video in her series explaining the making of her new self-titled album, Beyonce gives us some behind-the-scenes footage of her and Jay Z recording and filming the video for their duet, “Drunk In Love.” It’s so fun seeing Bey react to hearing Jay’s freestyle for the first time — she seems especially, uh, moved when he raps “hope you can handle this curve.” Oh, Mrs. Carter certainly can. Also, while I’m excited that she shouted out my favorite odd pronunciation in the song (SERFBORT forever!), I wish she had explained the line further. “Serfbort” is obviously “surfboard,” and when she says she’s “graining on that wood” she means “grinding,” but is she trying to say Jay’s penis is like an old-timey wooden surfboard from the 1920s as opposed to a more modern foam board? Also, do people actually put cigars on ice? Clearly I have spent a lot of time thinking about this song, but questions remain! Anyway, watch above.

Miley Cyrus Writhes Around, Touches Herself Sensuously In Video For “Adore You”

Miley Cyrus Writhes Around Beneath The Sheets, Touches Herself Sensuously In Video For "Adore You"
She Could Do This For Eternity

“Adore You” is perhaps the best example on Miley Cyrus’s latest album, Bangerz, that the girl can sang. Vocally, the song is just great. However, the video, which debuted today, is just hilarious. Watch as Miley, sans fards, writhes around in a nude bra and panties beneath billowing white sheets, holding a video camera as she rubs her body and mouth in ecstasy. I mean, so much excessive mouth touching, I can’t deal. I hope she washed her hands.
