    kperri at Jam: Spotlight on Music Stars1 yr ago

    Christina Aguilera is a Mouseketeer for life! The singer, who spent two years on Disney’s “Mickey Mouse Club” in the mid-‘90s (along with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and Ryan Gosling!), has been proudly representing her roots with the same low-cut, ripped-up Mickey Mouse shirt that she’s worn on three different occasions in the past month.

    “The Voice” coach first rocked the tee for a November 16 dinner date at Bouchon in Beverly Hills with her boyfriend of two years, Matthew Rutler, when she paired it with an uncharacteristically-demure gray blazer and black pants. Then, just nine days later, there it was again at a launch party for the Samsung Galaxy II, expect that time, Aguilera gave the beloved cartoon character a bit more of an edge with her studded leather jacket, black leggings, and a leopard print hat.

    kperri at OMG Jam1 yr ago

    Nearly 20 years after Nirvana ended with the suicide of singer Kurt Cobain, the band will be back together for one night … but not with the help of a hologram. None other than Sir Paul McCartney will reportedly fill in for the late grunge god and be backed up by Dave Grohl on drums, Krist Novoselic on bass, and unofficial member Pat Smear on guitar for a performance at the Hurricane Sandy benefit in New York City on Wednesday night. Although the news began as speculation, McCartney's publicist would neither "confirm nor deny."

  • Miley Cyrus Shows Serious Skin, Dances With Stripper While Performing in Hollywood

    Miley Cyrus still can't be tamed.

    The 20-year-old put on quite a show Saturday during Israeli electronica DJ Borgore's "Christmas Creampies" concert at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. Appearing as a surprise guest performer, Liam Hemsworth's fiancée hit the stage after midnight and showed some serious skin while singing and dancing with a topless stripper.

    For her performance, Cyrus emerged wearing body-hugging black stretch pants and a chest-exposing crop top that left little to the imagination. The former "Hannah Montana" star also had on a chain belt that doubled as a necklace and knee-high python boots.

    The tattooed Cyrus clearly had some fun with the audience. She strutted around the stage alongside a topless pole dancer, who was outfitted in just a thong and pasties. (Surely Cyrus knew it would draw comparisons to her controversial performance on a stripper pole at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards.) She also got cozy with Borgore — dancing up against him on stage.

  • Christina Aguilera Is Guilty of TMI – Again!

    Suzy Byrne at Jam: Spotlight on Music Stars1 yr ago

    Christina Aguilera has always scored points in our eyes for being candid — when it comes to her music as well as in her personal life — but lately, instead of being open, it seems she's become guilty of oversharing. We're still recovering from her October appearance on "Chelsea Lately," in which the mom of 4-year-old son Max revealed her dislike of panties. "I don't wear underwear," she offered. "I like to be as free as possible at all times. It's just who I am."


    And her TMI tear continued on Friday. During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Aguilera revealed the real reason why she always has a fan in hand while appearing as a coach on "The Voice" — and it's because of CeeLo Green's flatulence .

  • Should Justin Bieber Have Been Nominated for a Grammy?

    raechal at Jam: Spotlight on Music Stars1 yr ago

    Justin Bieber has sold millions of albums worldwide and racked up countless honors, but the biggest award in music, the Grammy, continues to be out of his reach. The 18-year-old singer and his third album, Believe , were not among those nominated for the awards when they were announced on Wednesday. Believe was Bieber's effort at transitioning from the sweet-faced boy with goofy hair who croons "Baby," to the more mature guy singing "Boyfriend" to his woman in a parking lot. He was even nominated last year, for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album for his debut, My World 2.0 . This year's oversight had to hurt!

  • Top 55 Songs of 2012: The Mashup

    kperri at OMG Jam1 yr ago

    There were so many great songs that hit the radio airwaves this year, and now there's a way to enjoy them all in just eight minutes. Daniel Kim, a Vancouver-based deejay and photographer, has spent the last three months painstakingly selecting, organizing, and mashing up the top 55 songs from this year — including Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain," Katy Perry's "Part of Me," and One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" — into a neat little package.

    "Making a mash-up is like completing a huge puzzle (not every piece goes together)," Kim, who has done this the past two years, writes on his website. "Fortunately, my brain was made for these kinds of puzzles. The whole process takes me about three whole months."

  • Beyonce Gives Rare Glimpse of Pregnant Belly in Upcoming Documentary

    kperri at OMG Jam1 yr ago

    Beyonce is baring all in her upcoming HBO documentary. The usually private "Love on Top" singer released the trailer for the still-unnamed special on Monday, and although the 25-second clip is brief, it does give a glimpse of what fans can expect come February 16: lots of behind-the-scenes action … including a shot of her pregnant belly!

    "I always battle with, 'How much do I reveal about myself?'" Beyonce, 31, says in a voiceover. "If I'm scared, be scared, allow it. Release it." As she speaks, images flash onscreen of the singer sitting in a bathroom with no makeup, hugging husband Jay-Z at a party, and getting hounded by fans on the street.

    According to HBO, the documentary, which was directed by Beyonce, will feature lots of confessional interviews that were shot on her own personal laptop, in addition to childhood videos before she became a superstar as part of Destiny's Child.

  • Justin Bieber Bares Abs in Concert: Is He a Mini Marky Mark?

    raechal at Jam: Spotlight on Music Stars1 yr ago

    Teen dream Justin Bieber, 18, has taken a cue from his mentor Mark "Marky Mark" Wahlberg, and dared to bare his abs (and the briefs peeking out from his jeans) during a concert at NYC's Madison Square Garden on Thursday. The difference, of course, is that Wahlberg was 20, and just seemed like more of a man when he came on the scene with his 1991 song "Good Vibrations" and those memorable Calvin Klein ads. Bieber became famous when he was just 15, so it's more jarring to see him showing off his chest, however muscular it may be. Even more disturbing is the New York Times' review of Bieber's Wednesday night concert at the same venue, which noted that Selena Gomez's on-again, off-again boyfriend was "unfazed" when a pair of bras were thrown onstage during the encore. They grow up so fast, don't they?

  • Dolly Parton Talks Lesbian Rumors, Plastic Surgery, and Looking Like the ‘Town Tramp’ on ‘Nightline’

    lizbeth at OMG Jam1 yr ago

    No, Dolly Parton hasn't been living a lie for the last 46 years. On Monday night's "Nightline,"the country icon, who has been married to the rarely seen Carl Dean since 1966, addressed rumors that she's gay, rumors that have stemmed from her close relationship with longtime best friend Judy Ogle.

    "Judy and I have been best friends since we were like in the third and fourth grade," she says in the interview with Juju Chang. "I mean, I love her as much as I love anybody in the whole world, but we're not romantically involved."

    The rumors are similar to those that have dogged Oprah Winfrey regarding her relationship with her BFF Gayle King. Parton notes she and Winfrey have laughed about the false reports.

    "We do talk about that — Gayle , her friend; Judy, my friend. They just think that you just can't be that close to somebody," she explains.

  • Britney Spears and will.i.am Release ‘Scream and Shout’

    kperri at OMG Jam1 yr ago

    After months of teasing their collaboration, Britney Spears and will.i.am finally debuted "Scream and Shout" on Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Monday … and it's not exactly worthy of all the hype. The four-and-a-half minute song begins with a very Black Eyed Peas dance beat and a British female voice — there are mixed reports on whether or not it's Spears — saying repeatedly, "When we up in the club/all eyes on us." After 45 seconds, will.i.am appears, with the actual Spears close behind him when she sings back-up on the chorus, "I wanna scream and shout and let it all out" — and that's about all she contributes. Another male voice announces, "You are rocking with will.i.am and …" then we hear her infamous "Britney, bitch" from her song, "Gimme More."

    Of the single, from his upcoming #willpower solo album, Britney gushed to Seacrest, "I can't sit down. I have to dance. I wanna dance. I felt like I'm at the club." The singer, who worked with will.i.am previously on her 2011 song "Big Fat Bass," added, "I generally have a good time [recording with him]."
