Well, she’s on to a new moment now: The 16-year-old will head out on a promo tour for The Voice, and she starts recording in Nashville on Monday for Big Machine Records, home to another blond singer with an audience of millions: Taylor Swift.

Cher debuts new single 'Woman's World' on 'The Voice': Watch it here

Last night on The Voice, some blonde girl who we’ll probably never have to hear from again won the competition. So let’s skip right to the big news: Cher returned to the stage for the first time in 12 years, and she brought her totally gonzo hair with her.

Of course, she also pulled back the curtain on her new single “Woman’s World,” which combines the techno-thump of “Believe” with the ladies-in-the-front tribal fist-pumpery of Beyoncé’s “Run the World (Girls).” She sounded a little shaky, but she still has a set of pipes.

And besides, who could really hear her over that sparkly jacket? Check out Cher’s live rendition of “Woman’s World” below.  READ FULL STORY

Madonna's new doc: 'You never know what you're going to get,' says director -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Madonna still matters.

That’s the message of Madonna: The MDNA Tour, a documentary that chronicles her top-grossing 2012 worldwide tour. Ostensibly a concert film, The MDNA Tour also sheds light on the impact Madonna has had on a generation of artists, dancers, and general fans who refuse to conform for conformity’s sake.

Director Danny Tull, who’s edited several of Madonna’s recent projects, including W.E., took a close-up look at the icon’s legendary drive, cutting the best moments of 88 different shows into one cohesive documentary. “There was just a mammoth amount of footage to get through and find that perfect shot for her,” says Tull, who literally worked his fingers to the bone in the editing suite for six months. “On ‘Like a Prayer,’ there must be [cuts of concerts from] 50 countries inside that song alone. It was really intense. I think I looked down one day and I was like, ‘Oh, my fingers are about to fall off.’ But it was worth it.'”

By the end, Tull knew the ins and outs of the concert perhaps better than Madonna herself, but she still never ceased to surprise him. “The interesting thing with her is you never know what you’re going to get,” he says. “She always brings something different to the table. Maybe fans had known it before, but I think her Olympian spirit will be reinforced again [with the doc]. It’s just unbelievable, the pace of the show. It’s just non-stop. It’s very difficult to keep up.”

The pace slows down, however, for this very-slightly NSFW exclusive scene, in which Madonna auditions some of the show’s dancers, a talented group that is full of Madge admirers. Madonna still matters — you’d better believe it! READ FULL STORY

Naomi Judd slams CMT Awards for 'by the way' George Jones tribute

In a letter to Nashville newspaper The Tennesseean, country singer Naomi Judd took aim at last week’s CMT Music Awards, ripping the ceremony for not staying true to country music — and for short changing George Jones’ death with an undercooked tribute.

“George Jones is to country music what The Beatles are to pop, the Rolling Stones to rock, Elvis to rockabilly, Mozart to classical and Aretha to soul,” Judd wrote. “Yet, the ‘Country’ Music Television awards show allowed only a ‘by the way’ mention of Jones’ death and legacy.”

“Incongruously, [CMT] chose alternative music group the Mavericks to perform their short version of George’s ‘The Race Is On,'” Judd continued.

Judd wasn’t just bothered by the George Jones tribute, though. She also criticized genre-bending performances, alluding to Florida Georgia Line and Nelly’s rendition of “Cruise.” READ FULL STORY

Insane Clown Posse finally getting their own TV show

Having already mastered the art of wicked rhymes, conquered the world of cinema, and asked bold questions about magnets, there’s only one frontier left for the Insane Clown Posse to conquer: television.

Starting Wednesday, July 24, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J will star in the weekly series Insane Clown Posse Theater, wherein the two Detroit rappers will comment on music videos and perform in sketches.

Justin Bieber booed at Billboard Music Awards -- VIDEO

Can you belieb it?

One week after Justin Bieber’s animated alter ego caused a stir in Springfield, his slightly less animated real-world self caused a similar ruckus at the Billboard Music Awards. Over the course of the night, Biebs was crowned Top Male Artist, Top Social Artist, and Milestone Artist — beating out heavyweights Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars for the latter prize.

As the singer made his way toward the stage to accept that last award, something funny happened: Beneath the high-pitched shrieks that greet Bieber wherever he goes, there was a low, rumbly, distinct chorus of boos. The heckling continued as Bieber delivered his acceptance speech, swelling when he made an impromptu plea to the audience: “From my heart, I really just want to say, it really should be about the music. It should be about the craft that I’m making. This is not a gimmick, I’m not — I’m an artist, and I should be taken seriously. And all this other bull should not be spoken of.”

Taylor Swift, Pistol Annies, Luke Bryan among CMT Awards performers

If you’re going to throw a party in Nashville — especially one where little gold statuettes will be handed out — you kind of have to invite Taylor Swift. So it’s only right that this year’s CMT Music Awards get that formality out of the way.

The first batch of performers have been announced for this year’s show, which takes place on Wednesday, June 5, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. In addition to Swift, the stage will belong to Pistol Annies (whose excellent new album Annie Up is out now), Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes, and Little Big Town, with more to come. READ FULL STORY

Mariah Carey rides Miguel's hog in '#Beautiful' video: Watch it here!

Mariah-Carey.jpg

Considering how much Mariah Carey’s new single “#Beautiful” is driven by guest vocalist Miguel, it’s only appropriate the video for said single features Carey riding on the back of Miguel’s motorcycle.

The clip, which premiered last night on American Idol, actually features Miguel in multiple drivers’ seats: He later sits behind the wheel of a cherry automobile while Mimi teases a handful of upskirt shots in what appears to be a chandelier-adorned barn.

There’s little else besides those two set pieces, though luckily “#Beautiful” is such a breezy tune that it all falls into place. Give it a look below.  READ FULL STORY

MTV's 'Awkward': Tegan and Sara will serve as music supervisors on next episode -- EXCLUSIVE
