Jennifer-Lopez-First-Love

Field trip! Somebody dropped J.Lo off in the Mojave Desert with a dance bag full of leotards and a smoldering bohunk on a motorcycle to film the video for her newest single, “First Love.”

Watch the video that our EW colleague Tim Stack dubbed (not wrongly) “The Grapes of Wrath meets Crossfit” below:

Mariah Carey reveals new album title, tracklist, release date -- VIDEO

Mariah-Carey

The artwork and track listing for Mariah Carey’s upcoming album is out — along with a May 27 album release date.

Carey recently told Billboard she was planning on taking a cue from Beyoncé by dropping a sort-of-surprise album. This album, titled Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse isn’t really a surprise like Beyoncé‘s self-titled release because, well, she announced it.

But Carey did try to hype up her listeners late Wednesday with a video, which gives some insight into the new album and features what the singer calls the only self-portrait she’s ever drawn.

Mariah Carey reveals she's dropping a Beyonce-style surprise album, does not know what 'surprise' means

Mariah Carey is taking a page from Beyoncé’s playbook — which we should all take pages from, if it means becoming Beyoncé. The OG Hello Kitty Diva is working on a new album — and plans to reveal its “title, track listing, artwork and music all at once via to-be-announced digital partners,” according to a new Billboard interview. A physical release of the album will reportedly drop the following week.

Beyoncé pulled a similar move with her last album, the self-titled epic Beyoncé, which she unexpectedly put out overnight without any previous promotion. (Because when you’re dropping a secret album, you don’t tell everyone you’re dropping a secret album.)

Monster invasion!

Lady Gaga will make her debut SXSW performance next week. Last week, reports surfaced that the singer was denied a permit to perform at the Doritos 56-foot vending machine-shaped #BoldStage, but today the singer announced she would headline the festival March 13.

Gaga announced the news in the Gaga-iest way imaginable. “[I'll be performing] as part of the Born This Way Foundation night on the Doritos stage,” she says via video. “I believe being an individual and speaking your mind is one of the boldest things you can do. I will be celebrating that Thursday night. We are for the bold. This is a very special show…only people who prove their boldness are able to get in.”

What does that mean, exactly? Watch Gaga’s announcement video below: READ FULL STORY

Beyonce explains how she got 'Drunk on Love' for new album -- VIDEO

beyonce-self-titled-part-3.jpg

There’s no need to let post-holiday blues get you down — not when Beyoncé has given us all yet another visual present. (Technically, the clip was released Dec. 25 — but you spent that day spending time with friends and family instead of trolling the Internet for new Beyoncé videos, right? Riiight?)

This latest clip is the third installment in Bey’s introspective “mini art feature” “Self-Titled,” which goes behind the scenes of the diva’s record-breaking surprise album — er, “details Beyoncé’s mind-set and artistic vision throughout the making of the entire project.”

Part 3, “Run ‘N Gun,” focuses on a trio of tracks: “Drunk on Love,” the one about how great it is to share a marital bed with Jay-Z; “No Angel,” which boasts a gritty video shot in Houston’s Third and Fourth Wards; and “Yoncé,” the one about Queen B’s fiercer-than-Sasha-Fierce new alter ego. Beyoncé also uses it to explain her whole album’s general aura and strategy: “It’s been interesting the last few videos — we’ve been like, deciding what we’re going to do as we’re there,” she says. “And there’s something about that freedom that is different for me, ’cause I usually plan things. I’m trying to rebel against perfection.”

See the rebellion — plus Beyoncé stalking across a beach at night wearing a bathing suit and carrying a trophy, as you do — below.

Beyonce gets down with grills and girls in new 'Yonce' video -- WATCH

Still haven’t gone to the trouble of downloading Beyoncé, the star’s self-titled surprise visual album? (Who could blame you — all that clicking!) If so, you’re in luck — because its super sexy “Yoncé” video is now available for free online.

Who, exactly, is Yoncé? Just consider her a fiercer Sasha Fierce — tricked out with grills, a belly ring, and outfits like a bondage-inspired orange bathing suit. She’s also pals with supermodels Jourdan Dunn, Joan Smalls, and Chanel Iman.

“I wanted to do something sexy and provocative, but not so overt,” video director Ricky Saiz told New York Magazine shortly after Beyoncé’s release. “I feel like the Mileys and the Rihannas have that covered and this was more sophisticated. There are a lot of references to nineties eroticism and Madonna videos. We shot it against one wall for the most part, so I was looking a lot of Carlo Molino photos. I feel like they are some of the sexiest photographs ever taken of women. They are so simple and voyeuristic and raw.”
