Chris Brown: I’m Quitting Music, Maybe

Chris Brown has a new album coming out later this month, and he says that might be it for him in the music biz, reports the Huffington Post. “Don’t worry mainstream America,” he tweeted. “After this X album, it’ll probably my last album.” (Note the deft use of the “probably” qualifier while getting in a mention of the title.) Brown also tweeted to say he’s “tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18,” referring to the Rihanna assault. In other Brown news, he turned himself in on hit-and-run charges and was released on his own recognizance, reports TMZ. Read more at Newser…

Backstreet Boys Perform New Song On “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Sound Like Angels

Backstreet Boys On Jimmy Kimmel Live
Watch BSB sing "Show 'Em What You're Made Of"!

Last month I gave you my second-by-second reaction to the Backstreet Boy’s first single from their new album, In A World Like This. Yesterday, I told you that the whole album, which was released this week, is completely awesome, and wholly unlike any of their previous efforts (I’ve had it on repeat for two full days now). Just in case you’re still not convinced, check out BSB’s performance of their new song “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of” (written by AJ and Kevin!) on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Their harmonies in the chorus are unreal. As is AJ’s beard. [YouTube via Idolator]

Carly Simon Sings “You’re So Vain” With Taylor Swift, All The Moms In The Crowd Go Wild

Taylor Swift Carly Simon Youre So Vain
You probably think this song is about you, don't you?

If you asked the average Taylor Swift fan who Carly Simon was, I’m not super confident they would know who you were talking about. The average Taylor Swift fan’s mom, though? She’s been singing along to “No Secrets” since way back in the day. So when Tay-Tay announced that she was bringing out Ms. Simon for a duet on a recent stop on her Red Tour, I’m pretty sure the deafening roar that ensued was the sound of a few thousand really, really excited moms. In related news? Carly looks amaaaaazing. Those boots! [YouTube via Rolling Stone]

Fiona Apple's "Hot Knife"

Fiona Apple, what happened to your octopus?  She should do all her music videos while wearing a cephalopod on her head. Maybe Paul Thomas Anderson, who directed “Hot Knife,” wouldn’t let her. Oh well. It’s still pretty good. By the way, that other woman in the video, facing off against Fiona? That’s her sister, the singer Maude Maggart, who also sang on Fiona’s new album The Idler Wheel… [SPIN]
