Taylor Swift sings 'You're So Vain' with Carly Simon -- VIDEO

Taylor Swift and Carly Simon are both blond singer-songwriters, and the comparisons don’t end there. They also get asked a certain question pretty often: Who did you write that song about? In Simon’s case, everyone wants to know the subject of “You’re So Vain,” which has been rumored to be about everyone from Mick Jagger to Warren Beatty. In Swift’s case, every love song is up for speculation.

So it’s only appropriate that Swift brought Simon out onstage Saturday night to sing “Vain” during her Red Tour stop in Foxborough, Mass. Watch the entire performance below:

Regina Spektor's original theme song for the Netflix dramedy 'Orange Is the New Black' -- hear it here and see the credits sequence EXCLUSIVE

What goes best with a prison-issue jumpsuit and fifteen-month sentence for narcotics possession? A new Regina Spektor song! Of course.

That, at least, was Jenji Kohan’s idea. Kohan is the Emmy-winning creator of Weeds and the new Netflix comedy-drama Orange Is The New Black – based on the memoir of Piper Kerman, a privileged young liberal-arts undergrad who became entangled in a drug trafficking ring and nearly a decade  later, ended up serving time for her crimes.

So how did Spektor get involved? Kohan tells EW, “I listened to Regina’s albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song … I had total faith in her and she nailed it.” Listen to it exclusively below, and watch the full credits sequence: READ FULL STORY

New video round-up: Pink finds 'True Love' with Lily Allen, Ciara and Nicki Minaj drop it low on 'I'm Out'

Pink-True-Love.jpg

A good rule for children at the pool is “always swim with a buddy.” Replace the word “swim” with “booty pop” and “violently cut carrots,” and you have the new videos from Ciara feat. Nicki Minaj and Pink feat. Lily Allen, respectively.

Pink’s “True Love” finds the singer cavorting about with husband Carey Hart and daughter Willow. There are also some flashy psychedelic colors, footage of her trapeze act from her last tour, and track collaborator Lily Allen whipping up a smoothie full of rage (and fiber!). Check out the flashy clip below.

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

Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' turns 30, gets a music video tribute

Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” turns 30 this year, prompting a celebratory music video by a lot of famous girls who love having fun.

Kelly Ripa, Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg, Katie Couric, Holland Taylor, Hoda Kotb, and Kathie Lee Gifford all appear in the new tribute clip, holding high-heeled red boots in an homage to Lauper’s Tony-nominated music and lyrics for Kinky Boots.

Stars from Boots, as well as The Lion King, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, The Phantom of the Opera, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, and Chicago are also featured dancing and lip-syncing to the song — with a particularly enthusiastic performance from 11-year-old Lilla Crawford, the title character in Annie.

Watch The-Dream's really NSFW new video, already banned by Youtube for being too sexy

Like you expected any less from a video for a song called “Pussy.”

As a producer, The-Dream has helmed gigantic hits for some of the biggest female stars in the business — Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” Britney’s “Me Against the Music.” As a solo artist, though, his focus on women is a little more … anatomically specific.

If you have an open-plan office and you’d like to get fired immediately, go ahead and maximize your screen starting around the one-minute mark: READ FULL STORY

Singer Sharon Jones diagnosed with bile cancer, cancels upcoming tour and album

Sad — but cautiously optimistic — news for fans of Sharon Jones and her band the Dap-Kings: the acclaimed soul singer, 57, announced today that she has stage-one bile cancer.

According to a statement by her rep, Jones’ illness has “fortunately been discovered early and has not spread. It is expected that the immediate proposed surgical solution will lead to a full recovery, but because of its invasive and complex nature, will necessitate a rather lengthy convalescence. Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings will be back before you know it, with a new release date and rescheduled tours worldwide.”

The release also features an upbeat quote from the singer:

“Over the last few weeks I haven’t felt good and I didn’t know what was going on.  We sadly had to cancel shows while I went through a series of tests and short hospital stays.   We just found out that I have a stage-one tumor on my bile duct.  Luckily we caught it really early and fast and the doctors say it’s operable and curable!  
I will be having surgery very soon and will have to rest and recover.  I’ll be staying in touch and keeping my fans and friends updated on my progress.  I’m looking forward to getting back on the road to give the people what they want!”

Jones, a former longtime corrections officer at New York’s notorious Rikers Island jail, came to music professionally later than most of her peers, but quickly made up for lost time, releasing five critically lauded albums and becoming known for her joyous, funk-heavy live performances.

Before Jones’ diagnosis, the group’s sixth album, Give The People What They Want, was scheduled to be released Aug. 6.

Ciara tosses Nicki Minaj-featured 'I'm Out' into summer-jam sweepstakes: Hear it here!

ciara.jpg

Remember Ciara? It’s cool if you don’t. Though she had a ridiculous opening run when she first came on, unleashing killer singles “Goodies” and “1,2 Step” in the back half of 2004. She’s run into diminishing returns since then, but her new single could be a game-changer.

“I’m Out” is the second single from her upcoming fifth album, Ciara, and it’s exactly the type of electro-kissed swaggering sass factory that makes for a great summer jam. (You know, the sort of songs Beyoncé used to make). And though Nicki Minaj can be poisonous on her guest spots, she puts in her best appearance in months on “I’m Out.” Considering how irresistible Ciara’s previous single “Body Party” has been, this could be the renaissance that she has been looking for since her debut.

Go ahead and give it a spin below. It’s huge, and it could only get bigger from here.  READ FULL STORY

Beyonce's 'Grown Woman' finds its way online

Beyoncé may not be pregnant with a second child, but she is apparently ready to birth some new music.

Though she’s been teasing bits and pieces of different tracks (theoretically from a forthcoming album that has no title or release date), there hasn’t been a full new Bey song—until now.

“Grown Woman,” which was previewed a little ways back via a Pepsi spot, made its way online late last night. It’s clearly a leak, since the various streams of the track have been rapidly taken down over the course of the morning, but if you want to check it out you can stream it hereREAD FULL STORY
