Hilary Duff’s New Album Was Inspired By “Folkier-Type” Music

9fd47efb8cb959e138faf4f2f2f0e825 Hilary Duff’s New Album Was Inspired By “Folkier Type” Music

The Hilary Duff comeback is now in full swing, and we’re learning more about what to expect with each passing day.

After teasing a remix of her forthcoming single “Chasing The Sun” last night at Marquee in NYC, the “Come Clean” pop princess revealed in an interview with PopJustice that her upcoming album isn’t quite going in the electronic direction she initially embarked upon when we spoke to her last year. Check out what she had to say after the jump.

“I got inspired by some of the folkier-type music. I love Mumford & Sons and I love The Lumineers. It’s definitely a straightforward pop album but with a bit of that influence in there,” she explained.

“Folkier”? Sounds like this comeback’s heading down a more rootsy, artistic direction (a la pop princess Mandy Moore‘s 2007 makeover Wild Hope) than following in the footsteps of her previous dance record, Dignity.

When asked about the previously reported EDM direction, she was quick to shut that conversation down: “No, it’s all gone! (Laughs) Even though that’s where I started. A few songs I came up with were really cool and you kind of get heartbroken when you realize no one’s ever going to hear them and they’re going to be trashed.”

Lucky enough for diehard fans, Hilary responded positively to the idea of releasing the dance tracks after the record’s release, too. “After the album’s at the end of its cycle that would be cool to let the fans see a different side, but it wasn’t the push that I wanted to have out there,” she explained.

Make sure to check out the full interview over at PopJustice.

La Toya Jackson Shows The Basics How It’s Done In Her Flawless “Feels Like Love” Video: Watch

af9114c6875e49c0e1eab592245fa3e2 La Toya Jackson Shows The Basics How It’s Done In Her Flawless “Feels Like Love” Video: Watch

Sing hallelujah! La Toya Jackson returns to the music scene today (July 25) with catchy club anthem “Feels Like Love”. The stunning 58-year-old is perhaps better known for her best-selling books and hit reality TV show these days, but Toy first found fame in the family business. 1980 disco anthem “If You Feel The Funk” set the tone for her career but she became a veritable cult legend with scandal-pop classics “Sexbox” and “Sexual Feeling” later in the decade.

“Feels Like Love” is considerably more refined than those tunes but it’s still outrageous in its own kooky way. La Toya coos seductively about tearing up the dance floor with her man before serving dictator realness with a hilarious spoken interlude (“I want everyone in every country to stand up and do what I say!”). As for the video? The thinking man’s Jackson puts on a master class in glamor, allure and elegance. Watch up top.

Is Toy the new queen of clubs? Have your say in the comments below.

Joan Rivers Shades Selena Gomez During Major Rant Over Israel Vs. Palestine Conflict: Watch

cc83fe2b95cb295a0a3ae46673e2bca5 Joan Rivers Shades Selena Gomez During Major Rant Over Israel Vs. Palestine Conflict: Watch

We’re just going to set this here and quietly-but-quickly back away: It’s Joan Rivers being asked by TMZ at LAX about the current Israel/Palestine conflict. This alone prompted quite the tirade from Rivers, but TMZ being TMZ, they followed up a series of questions about Joan’s opinion on the launching of rockets and the loss of innocent lives by informing the comedienne about Selena Gomez “tweet[ing] a pro-Gaza” message. (Actually, what she said was, “Please pray for those families and babies today. Please always remember what’s important in life.”)

Joan was not having it and began to hurl insults at the “Come And Get It” singer, including, “Let’s see if she can spell Palestinian!” Watch below.

Lady Gaga Recorded More Music Last Night For Her Jazz Album With Tony Bennett

c1384e542892d565d3cfe4ef31f15edc Lady Gaga Recorded More Music Last Night For Her Jazz Album With Tony Bennett

What’s a Mother Monster to do when she’s not busy raving and dancing with her Monsters on the ArtRave or forcing her french bulldog puppy Asia to pose for photos on Instagram? (#SaveAsia). She’s busy getting all jazzy on us, that’s what.

As we’ve known for a while, Lady Gaga is recording a pop standards record called Cheek To Cheek with the legendary Tony Bennett. The two have teamed up time and time again — most recently popping up during Bennett’s set at the Montreal Jazz Festival — while teasing tracks from the long-delayed duet record.

Last night, Gagaloo invited us into the studio (via Instagram) to show us that she’s still working on that new album. “Studio Rattin’ with the Bennett Boys,” she wrote on one photo. “It’s a Standard night #CheekToCheek,” she captioned another. “Dance with me, I want my arm about you.” (That line, of course, coming from the classic “Cheek To Cheek.”)

Check out more photos of the “Applause” goddess cutting tracks after the jump. Are you excited to hear Cheek To Cheek?

Hip hop’s biggest never-was, Azealia Banks, is currently without a label. And you know what — she doesn’t really give a flyig f***. The other day Twitter’s biggest bully posted a still from the video for her upcoming independently-released single “Heavy Metal And Reflective” (out July 29). And now we have a super-short preview clip of what’s sure to be the visual of the year — or at least of the hour the day it premieres. (It is Azealia Banks, after all — the long-lasting attention span of the masses doesn’t really enter the picture.)

Head below to watch the (t)rapstress ride by a camera on a motorbike in the desert and — what else? — flip the bird.

5 Seconds Of Summer Perform “Amnesia,” “She Looks So Perfect” & “Beside You” On ‘Kimmel’

bd977c50e7943ba2125b6435bf748f71 5 Seconds Of Summer Perform “Amnesia,” “She Looks So Perfect” & “Beside You” On ‘Kimmel’

And now, for their next act in proving their impending pop culture dominance…

Following their performance on Today, Australian pop-punk troupe 5 Seconds Of Summer took to the stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to perform some of their biggest hits off of their chart-topping self-titled debut.

The set included their aching Top 20 ballad “Amnesia,” along with “She Looks So Perfect” and, as a bonus, album track “Beside You.”

The boys sounded fantastic live and brought their usual energy to the stage. (But then again, it’s probably hard to hear much of anything over those shrieks from the audience.) Check out 5SOS performing “Amnesia” up top, then check out the other performances after the jump.
