For the past five years, Nickelodeon’s HALO (Helping and Leading Others) Awards has honored kids who do good in their communities. The young honorees receive scholarships and grants for their chosen organization — and a chance to see performers like Nick Jonas and Meghan Trainor live.
Jonas and Trainor are just two of the chart-toppers featured at this year’s awards: Jessie J, Echosmith, and The Vamps will also perform at the show, hosted by HALO Awards creator Nick Cannon. READ FULL STORY
Right after Nicki Minaj, Jessie J, and Ariana Grande opened Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards with a performance of “Bang Bang,” MTV premiered the trio’s wardrobe malfunction-free video for the song online.
The video begins with men ogling at Jessie J as she exits a car, but she pays it no mind and enlists female onlookers to join her in showing off their Cadillac-like booties.

If you notice your computer or smartphone running hot recently, it may be because the internet is currently on fire after the release of “Bang Bang,” an en fuego team-up between Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and British pop star Jessie J.

British pop star Jessie J, best known Stateside for hits like “Price Tag ft. B.o.B.” (which was covered in the final scene of Pitch Perfect!) and “Domino,”faced rumors about her sexuality early on in her career, which she addressed in an interview with a radio show in 2011 (around the time of her first album, Who You Are), saying, “I’ve never denied it. Whoopie doo guys, yes, I’ve dated girls and I’ve dated boys – get over it.”
But now — on the eve of her third album and after a jump to a bigger record label — she told The Mirror, “For me, it was a phase,” she says. “But I’m not saying bisexuality is a phase for everybody.” Since the LGBT community fights tirelessly to show people that sexual orientation is not a choice, it’s understandable that they wouldn’t take kindly to a public figure announcing their closet has a revolving door. After getting slammed online, she made this loooong statement on Twitter: READ FULL STORY
