And The Award Goes To…

NRJ Music Awards 2009

Katy Perry. But just for a moment. The latest scandal to hit the NRJ Awards – Katy Perry was given the award for Best International Song but she was made to give it to the rightful owner, Rihanna. Not their fault as it was an honest mistake. It’s messed up nonetheless.

Randy Jackson’s listened to (and judged) thousands of American Idol hopefuls, but what does he think of the new singer for Journey, a band he used to play for?

He thinks Arnel Pineda — the Filipino singer that the band found on YouTube — is great. “He can sing,” Jackson says. And the only thing better than his voice? The Cinderella story behind it.


Usherin’ profits

Usher’s on a roll. While he didn’t quite get the same sales of his album “Confessions” the new release of “Here I Stand” took the charts by storm, selling almost half a million copies in one week. It even beat the Sex and the City soundtrack.


Gee “weezer,” it’s a hit!

It’s not American Idol, but this viral hit Pork and Beans is certainly getting people’s votes. The song is by the alternative rock band, Weezer.

At the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, Justin returns the compliment, praising Madonna for her “shapely body of work” and how she’s “always been a woman on top” who “fully enjoys that position.”

Her reply? “I’ll get you, f—–!”

Oh, get a room, you two.


Britney’s “Break the Ice” premiere


Britney Spear’s new video “Break the Ice” will debut at 6:30 ET today — and fans get to join her.

The video will be released at Fans can get to join the online party, where an anime Britney will mingle. (Fortunately, this version of the pop star won’t get drunk, high, or flirt with any paparazzi.)
The clip itself was directed by Robert Hales, who also did the Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” video.

Our congratulations to the production company for thinking of a way to produce the video while the real Britney was having a nervous breakdown. We assume the animations were made while she was going in and out of the hospital, and gallivanting around town with paparazzi.

Singing sensation Christina Aguilera has canceled her last two concerts in Australia after her doctors diagnosed with “a viral upper respiratory tract infection with a high fever and abnormal coughing.”  Well, that doesn’t seem like the best condition to be singing in, not to mention the pregnancy.

Xtina is in the land Down Under wrapping up her latest ginormous tour while being preggo.  In a statement to her Aussie fans, Christina said, “I want to personally apologize to all of my fans for having to cancel my last two shows here in Melbourne. Unfortunately, I have fallen ill with a bad flu virus. This is one of the best cities in the world to perform in and I am truly disappointed that I won’t be able to share my show with you all. Thank you for all of the continued love and support and I hope to perform for you all again next time.”

Xtina’s doctors have ordered the singer to enjoy some bed rest.  Wishing you a speedy recovery, Christina!




Crotchflasher Britney Spears has a new look in town.  We’re calling in the widow hooker look, whatcha think?

Apparently Spears isn’t just walking around the city in this outfit, she’s putting a music video together for her song “Get Back.”  Hopefully the video will bring back a little something that we actually saw in Brit several years ago.

You know, before the whole head shaving, K-Fed-loving, ranting & raving Britney took over.  Here’s hoping for a stellar performance!


Singer Nelly Furtado was looking chipper as she posed for pictures at Miami’s Mansion nightclub on Wednesday.
