Whatcha Say: Lady Gaga, Danity Kane And Gwen Stefani Got Our Readers Talking

Another week has passed in the Pop world, and boy was it jam-packed!

It kicked off with song releases from Jessie J with “Burning Up”, and Kiesza‘s collaboration with Joey Bada$$ on “Bad Thing.” Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett‘s jazz collaboration Cheek To Cheek was released, and Danity Kane surprised everyone with a new album announcement and accompanying singleKendrick Lamar dropped his anticipated single, “i” while Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose called it quits. Lastly, Carrie Underwood announced Greatest Hits: Decade #1 (her first compilation album) with the new single “Something In The Water” to be released on September 29.

Here at Idolator, we spoke to LIGHTS about her new album and also interviewed K. Michelle (it included a ton of shade, of course).

As usual, you were all quite vocal this week! Check out some of the best comments below.

:: Marie800 told it like it is on Jennifer Lopez And Iggy Azalea’s Soft-Porn “Booty” Video Earns The Sexy Duo A Top 20 Hit: “Terrible song and the video is even worse. It took Iggy’s star power and a soft-porn video to get a medium hit. Lopez’s career is dead as is her album. Nobody bought it.”

:: Just a No Doubt Fan is ready for Gwen Stefani‘s comeback on Gwen Stefani’s Comeback Single “Baby Don’t Lie”: Production Details And Video Director:  “’4 in the Morning’ is also one of my favourite videos! Sophie and Gwen have a good chemistry and it shows. Can’t wait for the new single.”

:: Veronica Vixen was apparently quite excited for Mother Monster’s latest performance on Lady Gaga Teases Her Live Performance Of “Bang Bang”: Watch Now: “I don’t know if I should pick my chin up off the floor or get some glass for my nipples to cut through WOW SHE SOUNDS AMAZING IN THAT CLIP!”

:: yescorrect was all about Danity Kane‘s new single on Danity Kane Reveals ‘DK3′ Song “Rhythm Of Love”: Listen: “yaasssss give me life bishhh”

:: It’s clear that DavidSask was not feeling this remix on Tegan And Sara’s “I Was A Fool” Gets Remixed By Chuck Inglish: Listen: “If I heard this shit remix at a party I would destroy the hosts music player!!! This remix should not be underground but never should have been made.”

:: alistaircrane was super politically correct on Two Demos Dev Hynes Recorded For Britney Spears Have Surfaced Online: Listen: “I was happy with the Britney Jean album we got, but I would not like her to collaborate with will.i.am again in the future.”

:: One of the more memorable comments came from Jim, on Lana Del Rey Will Perform Two Special Shows At Hollywood Forever Cemetery In October: “If she’s gonna go goth, she’d better at least don some black and throw in a Siouxsie cover or two…I’m just sayin’.”

:: larab83 gave her thoughts on Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett’s ‘Cheek To Cheek’: Review Revue: “I think gaga should have calmed down her vocals a bit on this record. This was her chance to show a little nuance in her vocals,but I guess that is a foreign concept for her. I agree with slant in the sense that she is too much, and over sings almost every song. It’s a shame, I expected so much more.”

:: MizzReyRey was completely over Bad Gal RiRi on Rihanna’s Infamous/Legendary Nude ‘Lui’ Magazine Shoot Just Got Hotter: See Two Topless Outtakes: “How is this legendary? Madonna and Gaga did this years ago. I actually forgot about this”

:: And finally, archibaldleach threw subtle shade on Lady Gaga And Tony Bennett Talk ‘Cheek To Cheek’, ‘ARTPOP’ Sales And Exhaustion On ‘CBS Sunday Morning’: Watch: “I must be in a minority that felt ARTPOP was exceptional. The only thing I would have changed about it was the inclusion of R. Kelly. If she would have done Do What U Want solo, the album would have been flawless.”

Charli XCX Is Our Current Instagram Crush: 7 ‘Sucker’ Promo Pics That Will Make You Swoon

Charli XCX is arguably the breakout pop diva of 2014. She scored a well-deserved (and long-overdue) commercial breakthrough with her song-stealing feature on Iggy Azalea‘s summer smash “Fancy” and swiftly followed it up with another top 10 hit — The Fault In Our Stars soundtrack smash “Boom Clap”. The Brit is now hoping to cement her status as a pop heavyweight with third LP Sucker.

The 22-year-old is busily promoting Stargate-produced bop “Break The Rules” (the album’s second single) and generally generating hype by posting adorable Instagram photos holding hard candy. We love Charli XCX and sugary treats, so it’s a pretty heady combination for us. We’ve collected the rising star’s best Sucker-themed snaps in a gallery up top. Enjoy!

Aussie Diva Bonnie Anderson Finds Her Own Lane With Infectious Pop Anthem “Rodeo”: Listen

Bonnie Anderson finally got around to releasing her debut single in late 2013 — six years after winning the inaugural season of Australia’s Got Talent as a 12-year-old. That song, a bubbly pure-pop anthem called “Raise The Bar”, was a minor hit at home but she had considerably more success with Katy Perry-channeling club banger “Blackout”. (It sounds a lot like “Dark Horse”).

Well, the talented teen is back with a new single called “Rodeo” and it’s easily her best offering yet. Co-written and produced by long-time P!nk collaborator Billy Man, “Rodeo” finds Bonnie rocking a more organic pop sound with a distinct country twist. “I like to yes but I’m cool to say no. Rodeo, rodeo it’s not my first time at the rodeo,” the rising diva chirps in the perky chorus. This is more like it! Listen to an extended snippet after the jump.

Is Bonnie on the right track? Let us know in the comments below.

Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence (Hook N Sling Remix)” Gets A Trippy Video From Visual Artist Ego: Watch

bc1ee00fc7826e188eb49b10c12a5431 Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence (Hook N Sling Remix)” Gets A Trippy Video From Visual Artist Ego: Watch
It Felt Like A Kiss

Lana Del Rey‘s morose ballad “Ultraviolence” is possibly the year’s least likely candidate for a club overhaul but that didn’t stop Aussie DJ Hook N Sling transforming it into a veritable EDM monster, which has already racked up more than one million streams (and counting). The gloomy diva’s unexpectedly great floorfiller now has a suitably dark and demented video.

Acclaimed visual artist Ego chops and crops the original video into twisted acid trip that finds Lana walking against a backdrop of stars and roses. There are also spinning instruments and a kaleidoscope of bright colors. The complete re-imagining of “Ultraviolence” works surprisingly well and will no doubt satisfy fans hungry for another house detour like 2013′s “Summertime Sadness”. Watch up top.

“Run” Is The Lead Single From Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Big Fat Lie’ In America: See The Sultry Cover

Let’s hope it’s third time lucky for Nicole Scherzinger in the US. Her first album, the near-mythological Her Name Is Nicole, was scrapped entirely and official debut Killer Love never reached our shores despite spawning a couple of great singles. (“Don’t Hold Your Breath” is still near-flawless pop). She is now signed to Epic Records and they are going full steam ahead with new LP Big Fat Lie.

However, instead of releasing summery club-banger “Your Love” or mid-tempo break-up anthem “On The Rocks”, Nicole has opted for The-Dream and Tricky Stewart-produced power ballad “Run” to spearhead her American campaign. And it could turn out to be a masterstroke. The song, which impacts radio on October 6, is gorgeous and could have broader radio appeal than her previous singles. Listen to a radio rip of the song after the jump.

Is “Run” the best choice for America? Let us know in the comments below.

Iggy Azalea Responds To Rah Digga’s Criticism Of Her Music

Iggy Speaks Out

Iggy Azalea set a new record this year for the longest Hot 100 reign by a female rapper. (“Fancy” was #1 for seven weeks straight, besting Lil Kim‘s 2001 record with all-star collaboration “Lady Marmalade.”) By then, though, fellow artists had begun calling out Azalea for her seemed lack of authenticity, whether for rapping in a Southern accent (Azalea is Australian) or allegedly using ghostwriters. In recent months, Grand Hustle affiliate T.I. even appeared to be working as an unofficial spokesman (“She’s tal-en-ted”).

Earlier this week, Azalea responded to her latest critic: Rah Digga, who rose to prominence during the late ’90s when Busta Rhymes invited her to join Flipmode Squad. “There is a white girl from Australia that spits in an Australian accent, and her name is Chelsea Jane – that I can get into,” Digga said to ThisIs50. “Teach me Australian hip-hop culture. Don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re [Three 6 Mafia's] Gangsta Boo.”

Rah Digga then wondered aloud whether Azalea’s music should be called “hip-pop” instead, which is what may have inspired The New Classic rapper’s response. “I honestly don’t really mind if I’m described as rap or pop,” Azalea said on Twitter. “My passion is purely making music and entertaining.”

See ThisIs50′s interview with Rah Digga, as well as Azalea’s response, below.

Beyonce Woke Up Like Dis On The Cover Of Her 2015 Calendar: See The Ultimate Stocking Stuffer

Christmas is just around the corner. Ok, that was an evil way to start a post but it’s true and you should probably try to get ahead of the curve by buying stuff now. On that front, you could do a lot worse than Beyonce’s 2015 calendar. Who wouldn’t wake up to Queen Bey’s face every day — even if the pictures have been largely recycled from her iTunes-slaughtering visual album?

I honestly feel like I’ve seen all these snaps before. Take the cover (above). The 33-year-old looks like she just woke up — looking ***flawless, obviously — but wasn’t it used previously? The back cover (after the jump) also arrived online and it shows examples of the other pics used in the calendar and they are largely taken from her Beyonce photo shoot. Not that I’m complaining. Join me in ordering several.

Lady Gaga’s Full “Bang Bang” Video: Watch Her Belt Out The Cher Classic Live At Lincoln Center

04a5eea1d9b188f8adc2797b79ce7462 Lady Gaga’s Full “Bang Bang” Video: Watch Her Belt Out The Cher Classic Live At Lincoln Center
Her Baby Shot Her Down

Following yesterday’s tease, Lady Gaga‘s full, live “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” visual has arrived. If you’re not quite up on the tune, it was originally performed by none other than Cher in 1966 — hence Gaga’s “Turn Back Time”-esque wig — and has been subsequently covered in some form or other by the likes of Nancy Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Audio Bullys, Charlotte Church and David Guetta. Needless to say, the song is a classic, which made it ripe for Gaga to tackle a rendition for her and Tony Bennett‘s just-released LP of standards, Cheek To Cheekalbeit as a live bonus track, recorded (in one take!) at Lincoln Center.

Tony and Gaga have an upcoming PBS special airing October 24, during which the pair will be performing selections from Cheek To Cheek. “Bang Bang” serves as an appetizer for what’s to come from that. Get cocked and loaded by watching above.

One Direction Fans Slam ‘The Daily Show’ For Terrorist Joke

Directioners Strike Back

One Direction fans have called foul on a recent Daily Show joke, though perhaps not for the reason that the Comedy Central show may have expected.

During The Daily Show‘s September 23 episode, featured “correspondent” Jessica Williams joked with host Jon Stewart about newly-forming terrorist organizations. “Just as you were talking, a new terrorist group just formed with one member each from ISIS, Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, Hamas, One Direction and the Zetas drug cartel,” Williams said.

The whole bit was a response to how the United States has been in conflict with the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) but refusing to call their increased action a “war.” However, Directioners interpreted the joke as a low blow to One Direction member Zayn Malik. Earlier today (September 26), their hashtag #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar, became a trending topic on Twitter.

On one hand, The Daily Show never calls out Malik by name. It’s also well established that One Direction fans will do anything to defend their beloved group. However, The Daily Show might not have realized that Malik is of English-Pakistani descent – a low blow, considering that the US war on terror has led to increasingly tense relations with Pakistan. (In 2012, the United States accused Pakistan of backing attacks on American troops and installations in Afghanistan.)

See some of the most outraged #TheDailyShowGoneTooFar responses below. (Derogatory remarks directed at Williams were not included, because that is also going too far.)

Rihanna Reunites With Ester Dean In The Studio, Working On New Album

Reunited & It Feels So Good!

With her Instagram presence gone and her lack of steady (and shady) tweets, Rihanna has surprisingly been under the radar over the past few months – save for a few scandalous photo shoots here and there. But the pop star hasn’t shown any public signs of working on new material – until now!

Rihanna’s been spotted in New York City over the last few days in and out of the recording studio, prepping for her pending eighth studio album (or #R8, as the Navy calls it). Her recent session turned into a reunion, as the singer met up with frequent collaborator Ester Dean.

Dean posted a black + white photo of the two in the studio yesterday (September 25) on Instagram, with the ironic caption – “Caption This.” The songwriter (who has worked with acts like Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry) is behind some of Rihanna‘s biggest hits – including “Rude Boy,” “What’s My Name,” and “Where Have You Been.”

Alongside Dean, Rihanna has been working with writers and producers like DJ Mustard, Ne-Yo and Elijah Blake on her forthcoming LP. She is also expected to release a concept album for her 3D animated film Home, which will include credits from Emelie Sande and Rodney Jerkins.
