Sara Bareilles, Please Serenade Me With Your Cover Of “Chandelier”

Is it blasphemous to say that I dig Sara Bareilles’ cover of Sia’s song “Chandelier” better than the original? (No offense, Sia!) I must admit, I’m totally into this. Sara’s acoustic take is so honest and heartfelt. Obsessed. [PopWrapped]…

I Don’t Know How To Feel About This Rock Cover Of “Bye Bye Bye”

Our Last Night does some pretty sweet covers of popular songs like “Skyfall” and “Wrecking Ball,” and their latest creation is this rock version of N*SYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” featuring Cody Carson of the band Set It Off.

Watch John Legend’s “You And I (Nobody In The World)” Video, Starring Chrissy Teigen And Laverne Cox

I’m generally pretty meh on John Legend’s music because it’s basically 24/7 lovemaking music, which is nice and all, but not really my daily jam. I am, however, really digging the new music video for his song “You And I (Nobody In The World,” which follows in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and Beyonce’…

Colbie Caillat Goes Makeup-Free In Her New “Try” Music Video

In the music video for her new single, “Try,” singer Colbie Caillat bares her lovely face without makeup, and looks that much happier without it. The song is all about the oh-so-familiar pressure women are under to chase perfection, and she co-wrote it with Babyface, of all people, who encouraged her to speak out about…

10 Life Lessons Learned From The Spice Girls On The 18-Year Anniversary Of “Wannabe” (In GIFs)

Eighteen years ago today, The Spice Girls put their stamp on the world by releasing “Wannabe.” It’s hard to believe I was just a little pigtailed eight-year-old at the time, but this song has remained one of my favorite jams and girl power anthems over the years, crowned as my karaoke song of choice. (And…

Lily Allen Confronts Her Internet Trolls

I liked Lily Allen’s song “URL Badman” to begin with, but I love it now that there’s commenters up on YouTube screaming “misandry” over the new music video. (Of course plenty of women hate on other women online and I have experienced that firsthand myself. But generally, my experience with trolls — you know, like…

Today, Thicke released a new music video from Paula, his album about estranged wife Paula Patton, for a song called “Still Madly Crazy.” The melancholy song…

This Surprise Backstreet Boys’ Groomsmen Performance Is The Wedding Dance To Trump All Others

This performance by newlywed Sean Rajaee and his groomsmen is pretty much my favorite wedding video of all time and I cannot stop watching it on repeat. Rajaee secretly choreographed the dance as a surprise for his bride, and lots of the groomsmen lived out of town and had to learn the routine via video…

In case you haven’t noticed, Robin Thicke has no interest in being coy about his separation with Paula Patton after 10 years of marriage. His upcoming album “Paula” drops on July 1st with songs like “Get Her Back,” “Forever Love,” and “Too Little Too Late.” Just in case the tour (which we’re assuming is just…

Robin Thicke Tries To Woo Paula Patton Back With Self-Flagellating Video For “Get Her Back”

Robin Thicke sure is sorry he was photographed groping that girl’s butt. And he’s very sorry that he and Miley Cyrus humped each other onstage at the VMAs.

T.I. & Iggy Azalea’s “No Mediocre” Collaboration Is A Bunch Of Sexist Crap

Hip-hop is probably my favorite genre of music, but goddamn, sometimes the lyrics can go and ruin a perfectly great song. Such is the case with T.I.’s collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “No Mediocre,” which musically is cool and catchy and would be super fun to dance to — if not for the lyrics being painfully…
