Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Rihanna's New Video with Kanye West & Paul McCartney

Rihanna has debuted a behind-the-scenes look at at the upcoming video for "FourFiveSeconds," her collaboration with Kanye West and Paul McCartney. In the video, we don't hear from Paul or Kanye; they just walk around, and Paul strums a guitar.  But speaking directly to the camera, a nearly make-up free Rihanna, with slicked-back hair, says, "This is the first song that fans are gonna hear from the new album, and the first visual they see."  We then see Rihanna choosing clothes for the shoot, and explaining that Kanye had the vision for the clip's stripped-down fashion. "Kanye came up with…

Sam Smith Reveals How He Stays "Normal"

In the past year, Sam Smith has managed to hit career highlights that some artists who've been around for 20 years have yet to do: he's appeared on Saturday Night Live, graced the cover of Rolling Stone, sold out Madison Square Garden, duetted with Mary J. Blige, partied with Taylor Swift and been showered with Grammy nominations.  With all this success, how does he keep himself from believing his own hype?  By going with his gut. In a video posted on Rolling Stone's website, Sam explains, "When I’m sad, I’m sad. And when I’m having a down day, I’m having…

Anyone in the market for a $17 million Hidden Hills, California mansion? Jennifer Lopez just put her nine-bedroom property up for sale, according to Variety.

The main house has an unassuming brick facade, but the interior is as swanky as it gets. The master suite reportedly occupies the upper floor’s entire south wing and includes a corner fireplace, a private stone terrace with a gorgeous view and a pair of walk-in closets.

Hozier Rocks Out with Ariana Grande's "Problem" on British Radio

The music of Hozier and Ariana Grande couldn't be more different, and that's why it's so much fun to hear the Irish singer/songwriter put his own spin on the pop diva's smash hit "Problem." Hozier covered Ariana's hit for BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge program, which features artists doing cover versions of other artists' current tunes.  Hozier gave the song a rock feel, performing with a full band and even a 10-person choir.  Hozier told BBC Radio 1 that he chose the song because he "always found it to be quite an irresistible little beat in the verse and we…

Hozier “Never Thought” Radio Stations Would Play His Music

Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” is being worshipped around the globe. It hit number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, gained admiration from famous fans like Taylor Swift and Adele, landed the Irish singer gigs on Saturday Night Live and the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and nabbed him a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year. Not bad for a tune that was initially recorded in his parents’ attic fewer than two years ago. "I always thought of myself as a very, very obscure artist," the Irish singer tells Rolling Stone.

New Promo Teases "Epic" Season of "The Voice"

If the new promo is any indication, season eight of The Voice is going to be epic. The commercial for the new season, set to air during the Super Bowl on Sunday, shows the four judges arriving for a gritty, underground cage battle, clearly inspired by the 1985 action movie Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Adam Levine enters the thunderdome-like cage, where he’s met by Blake Shelton, who teases, “You’re late again.” Then, returning judge Christina Aguilera shows up and taunts them: “Hey boys! You’re both late to the party. My party!” Pharrell Williams drops down from the ceiling and the…

T.I. Weighs In on Iggy Azalea's Steven Madden Beef

Iggy Azalea seems to have no problem venting her frustrations via social media. Following beefs with Snoop Dog and Azalea Banks, the rapper has called out designer Steve Madden for releasing unauthorized modeling images for their latest shoe collaboration. Although she's since apologized via Instagram, her mentor T.I. feels the rap rookie is handling her Twitter rants the wrong way. A TMZ photographer caught up with Tip to ask if he agreed with Iggy's actions.  "Absolutely not, I think she should focus on what got her here and that's her music, her performing, and continue to just present her talents…

Sia Reveals She'll Perform on Grammy Awards

Now we know there will be at least one completely strange and unexpected performance on this year's Grammy Awards telecast. Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday, Sia revealed she'll be taking the stage February 8 for the 57th annual Grammys.  Since the Australian singer/songwriter never shows her face publicly, her performance will no doubt incorporate some interesting staging, and may even feature young Maddie Ziegler, the Dance Moms star who appeared in Sia's videos for "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart," and who performed with her on Saturday Night Live and on today's Ellen show. For theEllen performance of "Elastic Heart,"…
