Morrissey's new video 'Earth is the Loneliest Planet' starring Pamela Anderson -- watch it here

earth-is-the-loneliest-place.jpg

Some girls are bigger than others; some girls just get to be in all the music videos.

Pamela Anderson, who has played the ur California blond for Kanye West, Elton John, Lit, and Vince Neil, is Morrissey’s new muse for “Earth Is the Loneliest Planet,” from his upcoming World Peace Is None of Your Business.

In the minute-long clip, the two circle each other on the rooftop of L.A.’s landmark Capitol Records building while Moz recites the lyrics for “Earth” spoken-word style, and they both presumably think thoughts of loneliness and midlife and shared vegan snacks.

It’s all kind of inscrutable and dawn-dreamy, like a European ad for a cruelty-free unisex cologne: READ FULL STORY

Watch the official video for Ariana Grande's 'Problem' here

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.

Kate Bush returning to stage after 35 years

This woman’s work is not done — Kate Bush, twirling alt icon and high priestess of hill running, will return to the stage for the first time since 1979, she announced today.

You’ll have to be British or buy a pretty expensive airplane ticket to see her though; so far, she’s only confirmed 15 concerts at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, beginning Aug. 26.

The singer unofficially retired from touring after just one six-week run in the late ’70s for various reasons, including a fear of flying and the accidental death of her lighting director, 21-year-old Bill Duffield.

According to the London Telegraph, Bush, 55, has become the most popular search term on ticket selling site Viagogo since her announcement, beating out demand for tickets for the likes of Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry.

Ingrid Michaelson plays her own Robert Palmer in new 'Girls Chase Boys' video - EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE

Ingrid-Michaelson.jpg

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson famously channeled a handful of classic rock stars  — including John Lennon, David Bowie, and Gene Simmons — in her 2012 clip for “Blood Brothers.” Now, for her new single “Girls Chase Boys,” she’s tipping her Patrick Nagel-painted hat to Robert Palmer.

The track is the first single from Michaelson’s brand new album Lights Out, due April 15. It’s a darker, more complicated side of the singer, she told EW: “‘Girls Chase Boys’ started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing. More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same. The video takes that idea one step further, and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys. We all know this. We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.”

The clip is a gender-tweaking homage to Palmer’s  1988 video for “Simply Irresistible,” one of the more iconic clips of the decade. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

CMA Awards breakout Kacey Musgraves talks Taylor, Dolly, and singing about weed

Kacey-Musgraves-Review

Blake Shelton may have won Album of the Year at this year’s CMA Awards, and George Strait may have taken home Entertainer of the Year honors. But who shot to No. 1 on the iTunes country albums chart (and No. 3 on the all-genre rankings) the next morning? That would be Kacey Musgraves, the 25-year-old Texas native who won Best New Artist and performed her much-discussed (and FCC-bleeped in the live broadcast, for its reference to smoking a joint) single “Follow Your Arrow.”

A few days before the CMAs, EW chatted with Musgraves, whose album Same Trailer Different Park won major acclaim earlier this year, about tying Taylor Swift, dying for Dolly Parton, and where she stands on the Luke Bryan/Zac Brown feud.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You tied Taylor Swift for the most nominations at the CMAs—six each. How did you get the news?
KACEY MUSGRAVES: I was woken up by a phone call from friends and my manager. And my roommate downstairs was screaming up at me. [Laughs]

Were you trying to stay asleep to distract yourself from your nerves?
No, I was just hungover. But it was a good reason to get out of bed, I’d say. READ FULL STORY

Robert Glasper Experiment feat. Emeli Sande, 'Somebody Else' -- EXCLUSIVE

Robert Glasper Experiment have a lot of friends — the fancy singing kind.

On the heels of lead singles “Calls” with Jill Scott and “I Stand Alone” featuring Common and Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, the winners of this year’s Best R&B Album Grammy (for Black Radio) are offering up another track, “Somebody Else,” with guest U.K. songstress Emeli Sandé, which you can hear exclusively here.

Hey Theo!).

Katy Perry announces L.A. charity show with Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding and more

You’re gonna hear her roar — if you live within mic-amplification distance of the Hollywood Bowl, at least.

According to CBS’s radio.com, Katy Perry will headline a charity concert at the famed L.A. venue with a handpicked roster of female stars including Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding, Tegan & Sara and Kacey Musgraves.

“These are all very powerful women that I really respect and look up to,”  Perry told Carson Daly this morning on 97.1 AMP, ”and I wanted them to come together to promote this supportive message and have a  fantastic night full of great music. There’s so many great acts in this lineup. And I get to play a lot of songs off the record that will have come out the night before.”

Tickets for the Oct. 23 show, which will benefit the breast-cancer focused Young Survival Coalition, will  on Wednesday, Oct. 23, go on sale this Friday at 10am PST through Ticketmaster (or 10am on Sept. 24 through sponsor Citi, if you’re a card member).

See Carrie Underwood's 'Sunday Night Football' theme -- VIDEO

NBC unveiled Carrie Underwood’s version of the Sunday Night Football theme tonight, marking the end of Faith Hill’s reign as the NFL’s musical queen.

Hill began singing “Waiting All Day for Sunday Night” (a reworking of Joan Jett’s “I Hate Myself for Loving You”) in 2007 and has appeared at the top of the broadcast for the past six years. Hill stepped down from the gig in April, and in May it was announced that Underwood would take over the high-profile opening number, which, interestingly, didn’t always belong to country gals — it was originally sung by Pink in 2006.

Underwood’s version features a whole lot of high notes and almost as many Verizon logos, but, remarkably fewer shots of her legs (which some have called the best gams in the biz) than Hill’s. Check it out below — along with the older versions for comparison:

Katy Perry becomes queen of the jungle in new 'Roar' video -- WATCH

Katy-Perry-Roar.jpg

Well, this might be the most Katy Perry-ish thing Katy Perry has ever done.

The singer’s new music video for her current No. 1 single “Roar” dropped this afternoon, and the jungle-themed clip is pretty much the most on-the-nose visualization of the song you could get. (At least considering the fact that she already used the boxing interpretation at the VMAs.) That’s fine with us — we’re not fans of Perry because of her subtlety. And the video, which details how Perry evolved from a plane-wrecked damsel into a Chiquita Banana-inspired jungle queen, is pretty hilarious.

She makes cartoon faces like this:

Ellie Goulding covers Justin Timberlake's 'Mirrors'

Stripped-down covers: Got to love them.

Ellie Goulding took on Justin Timberlake’s single “Mirrors” at BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge, adding some piano and a more soulful edge. For those that love the building beat of the original, that’s still here (just check out 1:45) but Goulding’s vocal riffs give the tune a whole new flavor. Besides a cover, she also debuted a version of her new single “Burn” at the event, off of her new album Halcyon Days, which is an update of her album Halcyon.
