It’s a good day to be a reality-show judge–slash–pop star!

On the heels of today’s new track from all-but-confirmed American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, Voice mentor Christina Aguilera got back to fostering her own musical career with “Your Body,” the first single off her upcoming album Lotus, due out November 13.

”This album is about self-expression and freedom,” she told Ryan Seacrest this morning. “There is a lot I have gone through personally over the past few years and this record represents a rebirth for me. The record is about freedom and getting back to the root of who I am and what I love to do.”

You can check out the single, which will be available on iTunes on Monday, in the clip below:

'Free Pussy Riot Fest' held in Russia despite government pressure

A music festival to support jailed members of the Russian band Pussy Riot went forward despite official pressure to cancel it, organizers said Monday.

Olga Kurnosova said city officials had tried to force her to stop Sunday’s show in St. Petersburg — President Vladimir Putin’s hometown — and firefighters had threatened to close down the Glavklub hall, claiming safety violations ahead of the concert.

About 1,000 people attended the “Free Pussy Riot Fest” headlined by the Russian rock protest bands DDT and Televizor, whose songs have long riled Soviet authorities and Putin’s Kremlin. READ FULL STORY

New Taylor Swift song 'Ronan': Hear her tribute to a young cancer victim

Taylor Swift’s celebratory breakup jam “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” has been lodged in the No. 1 spot on iTunes for the last three weeks, but over the weekend, the track was finally dethroned… by another Taylor Swift song.

The pop-country star debuted her new song “Ronan,” a sad, spare lullaby co-written with a mother who lost her 4-year-old to cancer last year, at the Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon on Friday.

Though Swift is known for her autobiographical songwriting, this one finds her playing the role of a grieving mother: “Race cars on the kitchen floor, plastic dinosaurs/I love you to the moon and back,” she sings wistfully.

Give “Ronan” a listen below: READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift's new single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' gets a lyric video

As you might have heard today if you’ve visited the internet, Taylor Swift released her new single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” last night, and almost instantly, the Max Martin-produced breakup anthem hit the number one spot on iTunes.

Reports say Swift’s track broke the record for fastest rise to the top spot on the iTunes chart, beating Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” by reaching the summit in just 50 minutes.

Now, the official lyric video (to answer our own question from a year ago: Yes, these are a thing now) for “Never Ever” has debuted online, and it’s sure to give the single even more immediate exposure.

The stop-motion animated clip features handwritten notes, record players, typewriters, and a “Little Lion Man”-esque puppet show-sized stage — in other words, it was shot on the same stage as Bein’ Quirky with Zooey Deschanel — and it’s embedded for your viewing pleasure below: READ FULL STORY

Taylor Swift releases single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together', announces new album 'Red'

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift took to the Internet on Monday night to make a much buzzed-about announcement via live web chat with her fans, and as pretty much everyone guessed, the starlet announced the release date of her fourth album, Red, which will be available for purchase on Oct. 22.

But that’s not all she did. Swift also answered questions — rather eloquently, I’d say — about her upcoming album, and gave us a first listen to her brand new single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” which is already the No. 1 song on iTunes. But more on that in a minute.

Swift, clad in a red dress and red lipstick, started the chat off by explaining her album’s title: “All the different emotions that are written about on this album are all pretty much about the kind of tumultuous, crazy, insane, intense, semi-toxic relationships that I’ve experienced in the last two years. All those emotions — spanning from intense love, intense frustration, jealousy, confusion, all of that — in my mind, all those emotions are red. You know, there’s nothing in between. There’s nothing beige about any of those feelings.”

Pink releases 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)' video: Watch it here -- VIDEO

pink-blow-me-one-last-kiss_320x320.jpg

Pink (or P!nk, if you’re nasty) has spent most of her career building up a pretty impressive cavalcade of music videos. (If you need reminding, check out the clips for “Perfect” and “So What.”)

She adds another winner to her oeuvre with the new clip for “Blow Me (One Last Kiss),” the first single from her new album The Truth About Love (due September 14).

In the clip, Pink casts herself as a fancy lass (perhaps a silent-era movie star?) who has had enough with the men in her life and won’t hesitate to break up the black-and-white monotony with a little red wine to the face. Watch it below:

Yes, Spice Girls are reuniting for the Olympics

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want: a Spice Girls reunion!

Thankfully, the 2012 Summer Olympics in London will feature just that. According to the always-excited British press, the ’90s group’s five ladies — including the reportedly reluctant Victoria Beckham — have “signed on the dotted line” to perform as one sexy unit again at the Aug. 12 closing ceremony.

The band’s first reunion since 2008 was once rumored to be in the cards for 2010′s FIFA World Cup, but it hasn’t happened for the quintet — made up of Beckham (the singer-turned-fashion director known as Posh Spice), Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) — until now.  READ FULL STORY

Kellie Pickler talks making '100 Proof', splitting with her label

On Tuesday, we sat down with country star Kellie Pickler to discuss her new work with the ConAgra Foods Foundation and Feeding America, a charitable organization dedicated to fighting hunger in America. “There’s no reason why we can’t beat this,” says the singer, who reveals that she knew various peers growing up that had to worry about having food on the table. Pickler’s main goal right now is to get people over to ConAgra’s Facebook page to learn about how to help with their Hunger Free Summer campaign.

Still, since we had a hold of her, we had to ask about her recent split with label Sony Music Nashville (she was on BNA, with whom she was contracted for three albums), and Pickler was quite open about the whole shebang.

For those who don’t know, Pickler’s third album 100 Proof has struggled more than her previous efforts and sold 74,000 copies (versus Small Town Girl, which sold over 800,000, and her self-titled sophomore disc, which passed 400,000). She looked back on making the record and looked ahead to her next step.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It’s interesting that this split comes after 100 Proof, which was easily your best work so far — at least in my opinion. Before we talk about the record deal, I’d like to hear about making the record.
KELLIE PICKLER: Luke Wooten and Frank Lidell — they helped me discover the artist in myself. Since American Idol, it’s been like a blur. I’ve been pulled in a hundred different directions by a hundred different people. You know, signing contracts that I couldn’t read, but I was 19 and green and it was, “Sign this contract or go back to working in fast food,” and I didn’t want to do that. Luke and Frank sat me down and I got to just sit with an acoustic guitar and I got to sing songs to them that I grew up on. You know Tammy, Merle, Waylon, Al Dexter, Kitty Wells. I could just go on and on and on. I just love traditional country music. They saw that in me, and that’s real. That’s me. When this album came out, the people that know me, my friends, went, “There’s Kellie. There you are.” READ FULL STORY

Best news of the day! Pink releases new single 'Blow Me (One Last Kiss)': Listen here

EW fave pop singer Pink hasn’t released a new song since last December, when she offered up the dead-on-arrival “Bridge of Light” for the Happy Feet Two soundtrack. The song went nowhere in the U.S., despite randomly hitting the Top 10 in Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

For all intents and purposes, Pink hasn’t really released anything much of note in the music realm since she dropped “F—in’ Perfect” back in December 2010. It should be noted, of course, that she’s probably been rather busy with caring for her first kid with husband Cary Hart, daughter Willow Sage Hart, who was born last June. But in good news for all the Pink fans out there salivating for some new tunes from her: She has returned! And in fine form, with the feisty, upbeat single, “Blow Me (One Last Kiss),” which is cheeky from the get-go when you consider that title.
