Kanye West is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Complex magazine. Instead of having an intensive interview with the rapper, the magazine had some of Kanye?s friends talk about him. One such comment was from friend and collaborator Nicki Minaj. She said ?He?s a legend in hip-hop and in pop culture and to be on his album is a blessing. I don?t even remember him ever working with a female rapper, so to be on an album and on a record this monstrous? I couldn?t have planned it better in a perfect world.? At least Kanye knows that there are some people in this world that still like him.
It looks like things aren?t going too slow for Christina Aguilera in her new relationship. The singer recently met the family of her new boyfriend, Matt Rutler. This is what a source related on the event: “This is the first Thanksgiving she was without Max. It was really hard for her and she was feeling sad, so she decided to go to the East Coast with Matt and a group of friends. Since his family lives so close, they decided to drop in for a few hours.” Christina Aguilera sure doesn?t waste any time, does she? But what happened to the whole Max is everything to her and whatnot? You would?ve expected her to be after sole custody first of all, not new boyfriends.
Chris Brown?s new mix tape ?In My Zone 2? is now available for free download online. The R&B singer released the new set online on Black Friday. The mix tape includes 19 new songs and new collaborations with the likes of Gucci Mane, Petey Pablo, Big Sean, Kevin McCall and more. Chris also wanted to gives fans an early Christmas gift by recording a tune called ?Christmas Came Today?. I?m really enjoying the mix tape and it?s well worth the time it takes for all of the songs to download. If you?re a fan of Chris?, it?s the perfect way for you to be reminded as to why you became a fan while you wait for his new studio album ?FAME? which comes out next year.
I?ve got some new details to share about Lady Gaga?s new album. A source who was present at the princess of pop?s concert in Gdansk, Poland said that the singer herself talked about her new record during one of the breaks on the show. Lady Gaga shared with the audience that it?s highly likely that her upcoming album ?Born This Way? will consist of 20 new tracks. That?s insane! I was excited to hear some new music from her before but finding out that there could be 20 new songs just sent me over the top. I am beyond excited for this!
The singer has recently released a new music video for his also new single, ?Pray?. As you would probably expect the video is a collage of footage from many of Justin Bieber?s travels where he visits sick children, on duty soldiers and so on and so fourth. At some points it is a bit touching. The images actually manage to augment the song?s potential a little bit and that?s probably the best thing this video has to offer? aside from being a reasonably powerful promotion tool, that is. To wrap it all up, there are also some images of Justin Bieber playing his guitar and singing suspended somewhere in a big metal heart. And if that?s not confusing enough, the images are black and white. That?s where the video kind of derails a bit.
Joe Jonas has reportedly made some major changes on his upcoming debut CD. The pop singer was said to have started with a softer sound but has done a big 180 and switched gears to a more dance-filled and upbeat record. The Jonas Brothers member told In Style ?I began writing it with a Michael Buble mentality, but now I’m switching gears a bit.? Joe has even asked electropop singer/producer FrankMusik to collaborate, saying ?He’s awesome. We’ve gone through couple of different sounds.? It seems like Joe is definitely trying to keep away from that old Jonas Brothers sound. Do you think he has what it takes to make it?
It seems that there are still some undisclosed things to her pregnancy that Mariah Carey has yet to willingly reveal? but she might have done it by accident. While recently relating about singing Christmas songs to her unborn offspring, Mariah Carey let slip the following line: “I just hope that they don’t turn out hating Christmas!” Well, well? it seems that Mariah Carey might have her hands twice as full as she initially thought? or, who knows, maybe even thrice as full. It looks like it?s going to be a long winter for the Careys? poor Nick Cannon, he might be getting more than he can handle.
Sources are reporting that The Black Eyed Peas are set to headline the Super Bowl Half Time Show at the 2011 championship game on February 6th. The hip hop band will be the first urban music performers to play the Super Bowl since the infamous Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction in 2004. Over the past couple of years, rock stars like Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones and Prince have been given the coveted spot. But BEP seems to have planned this perfectly as the Super Bowl performance will lead up to the release of their upcoming album ?The Beginning?.

Nov 25, 2010 Kylie Minogue
It really is a drag when you?re from Australia and celebrate Christians with the Christians because it never snows down there when it is supposed to. Kylie Minogue is apparently in the same predicament, but this year she?s going to be spending the holidays at New York and she?s hoping for the best. This is what Kylie Minogue said on the matter: “I think it’s kind of ironic that I’m singing ‘Let It Snow’ being an Australian – we don’t have snow at Christmas time. So if in fact it does snow whilst I’m in New York this year, I’ll be like a five year old kid, I’ll be so excited. It’s always a big thrill for me to be on the side of the world where it’s a white Christmas.” Who knows, maybe even Santa Claus will drop in for a visit? after all, everyone knows he rarely travels as far south as Australia.
Four songs were covered on this week?s episode of ?Glee?. Jane Lynch and guest star Carol Burnett made a harmony of ?Ohio? from the 1953 musical ?Wonderful Town?. Two Bruno Mars? songs were also featured, namely ?Just the Way You Are? and ?Marry You?. Matthew Morrison also sang the Pablo Beltran Ruiz song ?Sway?, as covered by Michael Buble as well as the Pussycat Dolls. All of the songs were released as singles and available for digital download but ?Ohio? is not featured in the album ?Glee: The Music, Volume 4?. If it wasn?t for the Bruno Mars songs, the songs on this week?s episodes would have been graded with a B-, but since the R&B hits are there, I give it an A.
