Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.
This song is awful.

Nicki Minaj has been teasing the world with her video for new single ‘Anaconda’ for weeks now. It was supposed to be out a while ago, but got pushed back for ‘Bang Bang’ and her Beyonce remix. Now it’s here, however, and boy is it something else. Spoiler: There’s a whole lot of ass.
I keep seeing all these articles saying how badly they feel for Drake and that he must’ve had his junk taped to his leg after getting a lap dance from Nicki. His thirst for her always has been and always will be the realest thing about him and I sorta love it… even though he’s apparently back with Rihanna now (and I love that pairing even more).
Warning: Don’t watch this one at work or you might get fired. Unless, of course, you work for a porn company or something. Then by all means, press play.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are taking their On The Run tour to HBO because I guess they need even MORE money. The special won’t be airing until September, but people are losing their damn minds over this shit, so here’s your first trailer:
I dunno, I feel like I’m suffering Bey-Z exhaustion again, like I was before she dropped the self-titled. I need them to go away for a while, please.

The last point was proven during a concert, when he and 25,000 fans sang “Happy Birthday” to an 8-year-old boy with autism in the audience whose only dream was that very experience.
In a post on The Manifest Station, Marika Rosenthal Delan wrote that her son Julian had one wish for this 8th birthday: to see Timberlake in concert. Julian’s parents made that wish come true by taking him to see Timberlake at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif., on Aug. 11. Like Timberlake, young Julian even wore a fedora and JT-branded bow tie for the occasion.
During the show, Julian excitedly chanted, “It’s my birthday!! This is my present! This is my present! I I Love You JT!” His mother feared that her son’s singing and yelling might annoy the “model-esque girls” sitting next to them, she wrote. But before they knew it, the surrounding concert-goers had helped get Timberlake’s attention on stage, which ended with him leading the arena crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” to Julian.
“It took us over an hour just to get outside the arena whilst Julian was high-fiving and fist-bumping everyone that stopped him,” Julian’s mother wrote. “Thank you for showing me I was wrong about what the world would do when they saw my son. Thank you for seeing him and not just his disability.”
Aw, lovely! Here’s a picture of Julian:
And here’s a video of Justin singing to him:
Sometimes you just need a feel good story like this to brighten things up a bit, yknow?

As much as I really didn’t want to, I totally love the Ariana Grande single ‘Problem’. It’s so good! It’s so catchy! I can even sorta ignore Iggy Azalea‘s presence on the track if I really try hard! Well, now Ariana’s got a new song to get stuck in your head. It’s called ‘Break Free’ and it’s her duet (?) with Zedd, who everyone seems to love, as well.
I don’t know how I feel about this one – definitely not as good as ‘Problem’, but it’s got potential. Here’s the official video for you to enjoy:
By the way, I just have to mention that the stupid fucking hairdo she has going on ALL the time with that extension ponytail drives me NUTS. It ages her about 10 years and it just really needs to go. I know it’s her Amy Winehouse beehive (i.e. trademark), but it’s God-awful.

Iggy Azalea is THE WORST and pretty much everything wrong with the world, but people seem to really love her despite her racist and homophobic bullshit, so there’s that. ‘Fancy’ has become the unofficial song of the summer to some, she’s had massive success as a featured artist on Ariana Grande‘s hit single ‘Problem’, and now she’s about to release a new track with Rita Ora called ‘Black Widow’, which was written by none other than Katy Perry. Considering it has a super ‘Dark Horse’ vibe, I’m not at all surprised.
From Mix FM:
“Katy Perry said to me, ‘Hey I’ve got this song, I’ve been writing and I think you should do it. I just keep picturing you on it,’” Iggy explains to ABC News Radio. “That’s how my collaboration with her kind of began: first we had a friendship and then she wrote something that she had me in mind for. And, being that her album was already out, I said, ‘Will you let me have this for my album?’” Iggy laughs, “And she did me the kindness!”
I’m sure this will be a hit and everything, but Katy, come on girl. Get some standards.
