Jason Derulo's previous hit, "Talk Dirty," featured rapper 2 Chainz, but for his latest hit, "Wiggle," Jason decided he wanted to someone legendary...and to him, that meant only one man: the D-O-Double G, Snoop Dogg.
"Snoop is the coolest, most swagged-out rapper there is," Jason tells ABC News Radio, explaining why he tapped Tha Doggfather for a feature on the track. "He's iconic, and I wanted to go for a more iconic look for this one."
And it turns out that getting Snoop on the track was pretty easy, too.
"I saw him at a basketball game, and I talked…
American Idol Season 13 concluded less than a month ago, but auditions for season 14 are getting underway Wednesday in Minneapolis, MN. This year, there are a few twists, starting with the fact that the show is bringing back a former contestant to help identify the most talented hopefuls.
Carly Smithson, the tattooed Irish rock singer who made the top 10 on season seven -- that's the year David Cook won -- is joining the American Idol audition team for these first rounds, which singers have to get through before they make it in front of the judging panel.
He hasn't revealed all the details about it yet, but Jason Mraz will kick off an international tour -- dubbed the YES! tour, after his forthcoming album of the same name -- in August.
Jason and his current musical collaborators, Raining Jane, will start the trek in North America with a series of "intimate" shows, as well as "surprise" multi-night stands in various cities. Then, he'll head to Europe, where he'll perform in iconic venues like London's Royal Albert Hall. Asian and Australian dates will follow, and he'll head to South American in 2015. So far, the only North American…

Once a pop star tops the charts and racks up the Grammy Awards, what's next? A clothing line, of course. The Seattle Times reports that Macklemore has launched a new line of baseball-themed clothing.
Mackemore, whose birth name is Ben Haggerty, teamed with the already existing company Ebbets Field Flannels to create his limited-edition line, which was inspired by the uniforms of teams from the 1940s. Among the items: a black-and-cream jersey that costs $195, and a satin jacket that comes in black or red, for $150. Don't have enough cash? A baseball hat featuring the logo of Shark Face…
One Direction's concert movie may not have won them any Oscars, but their fragrance has won them an award at the event known as the "Oscars of the perfume industry."
1D's fragrance, Our Moment by Elizabeth Arden, was named Consumer Choice Celebrity Fragrance of the Year at the Fragrance Foundation Awards, held Monday night in New York City. The victory may not be surprising, though, thanks to the band's rabid fan base.
"When [they] asked 31 million Facebook fans to contribute to the Consumer Choice Awards, we were, uh, hopeful," a member of the Elizabeth Arden team said when accepting…
The first wave of nominations for this year's Teen Choice Awards has arrived, and most of today's biggest music stars have received nominations.
In the Choice Male Artist category, veterans like Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams will battle it out with relative newcomers Austin Mahone and Ed Sheeran, with Jason Derulo and Pitbull thrown in for good measure. On the female side, it's Beyonce, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, up against Miley Cyrus, Lorde and Ariana Grande.

Not long ago, Katy Perry said she'd like to have her own record label. Well, now her dream has come true. It's called Metamorphosis Music, and it's a joint venture between her and her label, Capitol Records.
Katy's first signing is Ferras, a singer/songwriter who's been a close friend of hers since 2007. You may remember his song "Hollywood's Not America," which was used as one of the "exit" songs on American Idol season season seven. He's also written songs for Adam Lambert and Ricky Martin, among other performers.
Katy duets with Ferras on his brand-new EP, which is now…
It's no secret Jennifer Lopez hasn't been so lucky in the romance department. The singer -- whose tenth studio album A.K.A. is out today -- says her current single, "First Love," mirrors her regrets about her own love life.
"The whole idea of the song is, when you do finally find that person, or you find somebody that you feel like you really click with, you wish you had met them years earlier, especially at this point in my life," J-Lo explained on Tuesday's Live with Kelly and Michael.
"We've all been through some stuff. You know, I'm Jenny from…
Back in March, Taylor Swift posted a photo on Instagram of herself posing with food guru Ina Garten, also known as The Barefoot Contessa. Now, you can find out exactly went down between the two in the new "Music Issue" of Food Network Magazine. Hint: It involved drinking.
The issue features four top Food Network stars cooking and hanging with their musician buddies, and Taylor and Garten were a perfect pairing, since Garten owns all of Taylor's albums, and Taylor owns all of Garten's cookbooks and considers Garten her culinary "hero." During their time together at Garten's home in New…
Jennifer Lopez releases her milestone 10th album, A.K.A., Tuesday, and she says that it pretty much sums up everything she's done in her previous nine albums.
"This album took so many twists and turns," she says in a new album trailer. "I thought, 'It's gonna be this type of album,' and then it took another turn."
"With this album, it was about encompassing everything that I was and everything that I am," she explains. "I've done dance music, I've done R&B hip-hop flavored tracks, pop...and I'm not gonna be put into a box. I feel all of these things organically."…
Lorde's birth name, Ella Yelich-O'Connor, reflects the surnames of both of her parents, Sonja Yelich and Vic O'Connor. While using a hyphenated last name isn't unusual, it turns out there was a specific reason for it: her parents aren't married. But that's all about to change: they just got engaged.
Lorde broke the news on Twitter, writing, "BEST DAY - went to niagara falls - my dad proposed to my mum after almost 30 years together."
She added, wryly, "inevitable response yes i know i have seen a diamond now." That's a reference to the first line in her hit…
