Mariah Carey hints at upcoming tour...

Brace yourselves dahhlings! Mariah Carey may very well be going on tour! Last night, the five-time Grammy winner launched her new website MariahCarey.com, and unwrapped a recorded audio message to her lambily. She is heard saying: "I can’t wait to see you when I hit the road, starting very soon and I’m very excited about it!"

Um, most people tour at the back of a successful album because it serves as confirmation that demand is actually there. Sadly, this has not been the case for Mariah. This era has been so horrific I am shocked her people would even let her tour. Despite her fourteenth studio album 'Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse' only selling 99,500 copies to date, the wonder lies in whether or not she will be able to sell an arena tour, at all.

Rihanna's title as the most viewed YouTube channel has now been snatched...

Unfortunately, Rihanna having the most viewed YouTube channel has now become a thing of the past. A Lady Gaga fan that runs the YouTube channel 'PewdiePie' has now stolen her thunder (1, 2). For those not knowing who PewdiePie is, he is the biggest YouTuber of all time. He snags around 2 million views per hour and earns $4 million dollars per year, uploading gaming walk-throughs or reactions to them.

Although he's only famous on YouTube, fair play to him for his amazing YouTube hustle and managing to dethrone one of today's biggest pop phenomenons. No skin off Rihanna's back though. I'm sure she will reclaim her throne once she drops her eighth studio album later this year.

Watch: Tinashe performs ‘2 On’ on ‘Wendy Williams’...

R&B newcomer Tinashe has been steaming up the airwaves with her breakthrough single '2 On.' In promotion of it, she performed the DJ Mustard-produced hit on 'The Wendy Williams Show' today. The track is currently number one on Rhythmic Radio and will feature on her debut album 'Aquarius', due September.

She's cute, though I'm not seeing much variation from Ciara or the other vocally challenged R&B chicks that likes to do a two-step on stage. However, the song IS an actual bop. See what she served up with one of her first televised performances inside.

Snapshots: Rita Ora & Iggy Azalea shoot restaurant scenes for 'Black Widow' video...

Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea serve another glimpse at what's in store for their upcoming 'Black Widow' music video, which was filmed over the weekend. It looks like these two are pulling out the stops as the pair were seen shooting restaurant scenes with Hollywood actor Michael Madsen!

At this point, Madsen may have lowered his stock but work is work at the end of the day. For the samurai themed clip, it appears both Iggy and Rita have alternative aliases with the rapper appearing as a waitress in one shot and a sword-welding fighter in the next.

Cheryl Cole tops UK iTunes chart in 42 minutes...

It's amazing what a gimmicky marriage announcement can do for a really shit song. In just 42 minutes of its release, Cheryl Cole's new single 'Crazy Stupid Love' (featuring Tine Tempah) stormed straight to the top of the UK iTunes chart yesterday. 

If the single snags the number one spot on the Official Singles Chart next Sunday (July 27th), Cheryl will join Rita Ora and Geri Haliwell as only the third British female solo artist to achieve four UK number one singles. Granted, this would not have happened if the song wasn't available for pre-order during the last two months and had radio not have supported it.

Watch: Beyoncé performs ‘Get Me Bodied’ on HBO miniseries...

Heyyyyy Mrs. Carter! Check out the fourth installment of Beyonce’s HBO special X10. This week, she delivers a high octane performance of 'Get Me Bodied' during her 'Mrs. Carter' world tour.

As expected, she kills it effortlessly.

Video Premiere: Ashanti – 'Just Believe'...

Having partnered with Beyoncé previously, Michelle Obama teams up with Ashanti to encourage kids to be more active. The premiere of Ashanti’s music video ‘Just Believe’ aired last night on Entertainment Tonight. Ashanti’s ‘Just Believe’ song is featured on the album ‘Songs For A Healthier America,’ which serves as a hip-hop album for Mrs. Obama's ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign.

In doing so, she partners with a Healthier America and Hip-Hop Public Health for the project. The empowering clip features Artie Green, Gerry Gunn, Robbie Nova and Chauncey Hawkins and comes with an inspirational message: Be a leader, use your strengths, chase your goals and dreams. Don't look back. You can download the song for free on iTunes!

Watch: Jessie J duets with Smokey Robinson for 'Live At Edinburgh Castle'...

Now this is some TV Gold! Motown legend Smokey Robinson took to the stage last night during the BBC broadcast of 'Live At Edinburgh Castle' in Glasgow. Old Smokey Boy got embarrassingly confused by the order of his setlist shouting: "Excuse me, excuse me, is this supposed to be 'Tracks Of My Tears?'" And then Jessie J comes out singing his old-time classic 'Cruisin' instead!

Smokey delivered some tight vocals which totally matched his tight facelift. For 75-years-old, he was looking... not so 75. Jessie sounded good too, and it was nice to see she fully recovered from her runny toilet issues prior to a concert cancellation this week because of it.

Snapshot: Usher, Drake & Nicki Minaj in the same pic? Very appealing...

When three of today’s biggest music stars pose together for a quick snap, it can only be assumed that something major is popping off. Earlier today, Nicki Minaj hit Instagram and posted this photo of herself with Drake and Usher.

We do know that all three of them have impending new albums dropping later this year, and both Minaj and Usher have already moved on to their second collaboration with 'She Came To Give It To You.' Music video in the works perhaps? Another musical collaboration being negotiated? Only time will tell.

Christina Milian denies dating Lil Wayne: ‘We’re just making music’...

This week, Christina Milian and Lil Wayne both sparked rumours that they are a couple after attending the ESPY's together and leaving there holding hands. When TMZ caught up with Christina at Chris Brown & Quincy’s celebrity kickball game they asked her if she was dating Lil Wayne — who was also in attendance. She responded with, “We’re just making music.” When asked if she could date someone who is also her manager/producer she replied, “You just never know.”

Seeing as this is Christina, who has built up a notorious repetition for dating (and breeding with) her producers - we actually "do know" for sure. It is one of the reasons why she gets a lot of flack for being one of those chicks that "f*cks for tracks." Not a nice way of putting it. So, I'll just say she dates men with fat wallets whom she feels can advance her career in some way. Unfortunately, she never seems to pull it off.

Adele working with Ryan Tedder on new album...

All this week, Adele has reportedly been holed up in a recording studio with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. The songwriter, who has penned huge hits for Beyoncé ('Halo') and Leona Lewis ('Bleeding Love'), was working on material for Adele’s new album at Air Studios in Hampstead, North London. He has previously written songs for Adele, including 'Rumor Has It' and 'Turning Tables.' The 26-year-old powerhouse has a tough act to follow with her third studio album, which is allegedly titled '25.'

She encountered huge global success with her first two albums, '19' and '21' and the pressure will be on for her to deliver this time around too. I think Tedder is really talented but he is seriously guilty for rehashing his own hit songs. One Republic's 'Love Runs Out' strongly resembles 'Rumor Has It' and he didn't even try switching it up between Beyoncé's 'Halo' and Kelly Clarkson's 'Already Gone.' Still, are you excited about their studio reunion?

Snapshots: Rita Ora & Iggy Azalea shoot 'Black Widow' video...

In downtown LA, Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea were seen yesterday on the set of their video shoot for new single 'Black Widow.' Judging by their skintight catsuits and concept, the femme fatale-inspired clip appears to be a nod to Quentin Tarantino's hit film 'Kill Bill.'

It also looks to be paying homage to several of the heroines in the Marvel comics (more specifically, Scarlett Johansson's character 'Black Widow', hence the name of the song.) The girls have been hard at training for the clip, which is said to draw heavily on Eastern influences and feature dramatic martial arts stunts.
