Usher rocks Graham Norton with 'Good Kisser'...

The new arrangement of 'Good Kisser' that Usher performed on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ this week was pretty hot. It is such an underrated song and should have done better commercially. The song just doesn't have that 'instant' factor, as clearly, it is one of those growers. Sadly, people don't want growers. They want a song that engages the listener straight away.

Dawn Richard doesn't look like Dawn Richard in new promo shot...

It's the soul that needs the surgery, a Beyoncé lyric Dawn may have become all too familiar with these last few days. The former Danity Kane singer has already found herself defending her drastic plastic surgery this week. She took to Twitter to put a fan in check who told her, “God don’t recognize you @DawnRichard,” and she replied: “As long as the checks still recognize me we good.”

Miguel drops a surprise three-song EP...

The holidays are upon us, and 2015 is just around the corner. Unfortunately, Miguel's music continues to remain one-dimensional. I'm just here listening to his three-song EP, which he has just dropped via Soundcloud earlier today. They sound like they would blend in perfectly with his last album, the Grammy nominated 'Kaleidoscope Dream.'

Leona Lewis previews brand new song 'Fire Under My Feet'...

I love an underdog. Some people may not consider Leona Lewis an underdog given the global success of that first album. Sales for the albums released after that one have dramatically declined to a point where she became a struggle artist and fell off, HARD... almost like, none of that success ever even happened. But this new song she has just previewed off her new album sounds very promising. I'm impressed!

Rihanna meets fans in Paris for R8 experience...

Throwing yourself into a mob of screaming fans could be seen as dangerously cool had it not been premeditated with cameras and burly bodyguards. It's still exciting though, as it's all for a good cause in Rihanna's case. The Bajan beauty has just started doing stuff to prepare for the release of R8, known otherwise as Rihanna album #8.  That new album of hers is finally coming, or so it seems...

Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson rocks to ‘Uptown Funk’ on ‘The Voice’ Finale...

Mirror, mirror on the wall? Who's the trillest of them all? Bruno Mars certainly thinks he is, funking up the stage in gold rollers in his hair and busting out some of those choreographed oldschool moves. Very entertaining to say the least, but when has Bruno ever not provided the entertainment? ‘Uptown Funk’ will appear on Mark Ronson’s upcoming album 'Uptown Special', due January 13th.

Janet Jackson & Wissam visits the kids at Unicef Zaatari Refugee Camp in Syria...

Seeing new Janet Jackson pictures is so refreshing. Since marrying her billionaire husband Wissam Al Mana, Ms. Jackson has become such a recluse. She's completely distanced herself from the music industry and refuses to put out another pop record. Hmph! Wissam seems like a good man though, and the couple are always looking happy to use their name and wealth to raise awareness for charity.

Alicia Keys debuts 'Girl On Fire' outtake track 'Somewhere In The City'...

Alicia Keys debuts 'Somewhere In The City,' an unreleased cut from the recording sessions of her 2012 album 'Girl On Fire.'

Mariah Carey kicks off Christmas concerts in NYC...

Christmas queen Mariah Carey kicked off her five sold-out shows at New York's Beacon Theatre last night.

MC even had a little cry on stage, prior to her split from estranged husband Nick Cannon earlier this year. According to The New York Post, the 80 minute show featured a ballet troupe, a gospel choir, a clutch of carolers, several acrobats and hyperactive kid dancers.

Jordin Sparks announces new label deal...

Following the recent release of her '#ByeFelicia' mixtape, Jordin Sparks has signed to 'Louder Than Life.' 

This is a record label via Sony Music, which was founded by music executive and producer Salaam Remi. “I am very excited to be working alongside Salaam Remi on my next album,” she said in a new press release issued this week.

Rihanna named Creative Director of Puma...

This woman stays earning mad coin, while making us wait for that hotly anticipated new album.

Earlier today, Rihanna was officially named Creative Director of Puma. According to WWD, she will oversee the direction of the sporting brand’s womenswear line, and flew to Puma’s headquarters in Germany this week to meet with the design team. She picked out colours, styles, and also discussed the line’s direction.

Jennifer Lopez sizzles on the cover of ‘Self’...

Looking the way Jennifer Lopez does at 45 is an accomplishment itself. This woman really takes great care of her "self." 

J.Lo is rocking it hard on the cover of Self magazine's January 2015 issue. The cover story spills on the singer recording new tracks with Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins recently. New album on the horizon?
