Ariana Grande to perform at the 2014 MTV VMAs

Ariana Grande announced Wednesday during her TRL throwback special Total Ariana Live that she’ll perform her new single “Break Free” at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 24.

“Break Free” will be the second single from her upcoming sophomore album, My Everything, which arrives the day after the VMAs, on Aug. 25. The project has already gotten a huge boost from Grande’s biggest hit to date, the Iggy Azalea-featuring track “Problem.”

During the special, Grande performed “Break Free” for the first time; head over to MTV to hear a snippet, and watch her VMA announcement below: READ FULL STORY

Well, this is Deee-liteful. It’s a mod, mod black-and-white world for Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea — 99 problems but a primary color ain’t one.

Iggy Azalea tops Hot 100 with 'Fancy,' matches Beatles for chart record

It’s still early in the season, but right now it looks the battle for the official song of the summer is being fought (and won) by a single woman.

On this week’s Billboard Hot 100, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” has landed number one, knocking John Legend’s “All of Me” from the top spot and passing Ariana Grande’s “Problem” in the process.

Of course, Azalea is also a featured guest on “Problem,” and with that song at number two this week, Azalea has pulled off something pretty remarkable: READ FULL STORY

Song of the Summer? Ariana Grande talks the making of her hit 'Problem'

After moving 438,000 downloads in its first week (the fourth-best-selling debut ever for a female artist), Ariana Grande’s “Problem” is now officially a contender for the 2014 song-of-summer title.

But the 20-year-old pop star originally didn’t think the swagger-fueled jam would be a single. “It was so different from me,” says Grande, who had her breakout hit last year with ’90s throwback “The Way,” featuring rapper Mac Miller, and was best known before that for her roles on the Nickelodeon series Victorious and Sam & Cat. She decided to go with the Max Martin-produced track after getting some advice from her friend Big Sean. READ FULL STORY

Ariana Grande teams up with Iggy Azalea for new single 'Problem'

Ariana Grande’s 2013 debut album Yours Truly was a frustrating one — she clearly has the chops to make waves in the pop world, but it was deeply unclear who she really was as an artist. Perhaps she’s doing some soul-searching, because her new single “Problem,” which just dropped today, is a dramatic reinvention.

What you didn't see on TV at the American Music Awards: Gaga, Katy, Miley, Rihanna, and more

The night started with a gallop, as we saw Lady Gaga make the type of grand entrance onto the red carpet we’ve come to expect — this time by riding a white “horse.” But then we headed inside the packed Nokia Theatre, where things only got crazier.

Before the ABC telecast began, executive producer Larry Klein welcomed the audience to what he called “the biggest music party of the year.”

Katy Perry opened the show with a Geisha-themed performance of her new song “Unconditionally,” with a cascade of flower petals falling on the stage towards the end. The only problem was that the petals continued to fall throughout the show, even briefly interrupting One Direction and Ariana Grande’s performances.

See Ariana Grande, Big Sean as masquerade ballers in video for 'Right There'

Ruffled collars, sequined corsets, gilded doublets: It’s the best sweet-16 party ducats can buy!

The new clip for Ariana Grande and Big Sean’s “Right There” features the pop songstress as the belle of the masquerade ball, while Big Sean himself is elsewhere at a chapel, posing as a priest. Everything’s going smoothly until a handsome rogue played by Patrick Schwarzenegger (yep, that one) shows up to the party and steals Grande’s heart. Imagine it as a cross between Romeo and Juliet and The Great Gatsby, with a little bit of Can’t Hardly Wait thrown in for good measure.

Also, there’s synchronized swimming.

How does that all fit into one video? Watch below to find out:

Chart report: Ariana Grande's 'Yours Truly' debuts at No. 1, Tamar Braxton and Nine Inch Nails take the silver and bronze

So this is what happens when you put out “one of the most purely enjoyable albums of the year”!

Pop newcomer Ariana Grande’s Yours Truly has debuted atop the Billboard 200, making her the first woman to see her first album start at No. 1 since Ke$ha back in 2010. Truly sold 138,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan, which handily places the 20-year-old ahead of the four other artists with new albums in the top ten.

Landing at No. 2 is Tamar Braxton’s Love & War, with 114,000 moved units. Interestingly, Billboard reports that Braxton actually outsold Grande in terms of physical CDs — 63,000 to 30,000 — but lost the digital battle, and thus the overall war. Still, it’s enough to earn her the top spot on the physical albums chart.
