Justin Bieber's grown 'n' sexy 'Boyfriend' video debuts: Watch it here

BIEBER-BOYFRIEND

Mr. Bieber is taking this whole growing-up thing pretty seriously — as evidenced by the video for his sexy, sultry, look-at-me-I’m-older single, “Boyfriend.”

In his world, that means one naughty parking-lot party with cars, guitars, spontaneous dance-offs and — are you ready for this, world? — lots of lady-hands working him over.

Watch the video for the Timberlake-y first single from his upcoming Believe here:

TV Jukebox: 'The Secret Circle,' 'The Voice,' 'Switched at Birth,' and more music-on-TV moments

The teens were out in full force this week, music-on-TV fans! From first times to first loves — even first scooters — there were notable songs from The Secret Circle, Switched at Birth, Surburgatory, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars. Meanwhile, there was beauty in tragedy on One Tree Hill, The Voice makes it first appearance with a knock-out performance, suspicion ruled on Grey’s Anatomy and Grimm (though only one of the above involved fire dancing I’m sorry to report), a serial killer got his groove on in BBC America’s Being Human, and the gang from Happy Endings got gangsta with it on Penny’s birthday. Want more still? We also liked “show tunes” from Ringer, Californication, and The Good Wife. Check out our picks below. (Warning for those still catching up on DVR: SPOILERS ahead!) READ FULL STORY

Lady Antebellum selects tornado-torn Indiana school for its 'Own the Prom Night' concert

Lady-Antebellum

Here’s a feel-good story: Three weeks ago, country supergroup Lady Antebellum launched its “Own the Prom Night” contest in which a winning high school would land the trio as performers at its formal this spring. Fans sent in videos explaining why their school deserved to own the night with Lady A, but after hearing the story of Henryville High School in Henryville, IN — which was ravaged by a tornado earlier this month — schools across the country began to submit videos on Henryville High’s behalf instead. The winning submission came from neighboring Silver Creek High School. Watch it below. (And yes, that one kind-hearted kid kinda reminds us of Friday Night Lights‘ Landry, too.)

Unfortunately, Lady Antebellum can’t make Henryville’s scheduled prom next month because of a previous commitment. Instead, the group will throw a bigger event on May 16 in nearby Louisville, KY for the school’s juniors and seniors followed by a benefit for the community. Watch Lady A’s announcement below. And look forward to the YouTube videos of Charles Kelley dancing with many somebodys on May 17. READ FULL STORY

'Hunger Games'-inspired song 'Girl on Fire' by Ella Mae Bowen: Hear it here!

Ella-Mae-Bowen_320x320.jpg

Whether or not you know the name Ella Mae Bowen now, if you’ve seen last year’s Footloose remake, you definitely remember her slow cover of “Holding Out for a Hero.” The 16-year-old country artist, working on her debut album for Big Machine (home to Taylor Swift and The Band Perry), was invited, like many artists, to submit songs for consideration for the Hunger Games soundtrack.

Having become a fan of the first book when she read it in eighth grade English, she penned “Girl on Fire” — inspired by heroine Katniss Everdeen’s nickname — with her producer Seth Bolt of the band Needtobreathe. Though it didn’t ultimately make the track list, Bowen is releasing the song to fans in the hope that those who loved the book as much as she did will enjoy it. Watch the lyric video and read what Bowen had to tell EW about producing the track below. READ FULL STORY

Another day, another Madonna song leaked: Listen to 'Falling Free' here

Madonna-MDNA_320.jpg

It seems like only yesterday we were discussing how a song off Madonna’s upcoming album MDNA was leaked. Oh right, that’s because that’s exactly what we were doing yesterday.

A mere 24 hours after fans heard a one minute snippet of the leaked “Superstar” (a pop ditty awfully reminiscent of old-school Madonna that features the musical debut of Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon), yet another track from MDNA has hit the web. This one’s called”Falling Free.” Take a listen below and consider what so many leaks, so little time could mean for Madonna.

Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Ringo Starr, and more remember Davy Jones

The sad news that the Monkees singer Davy Jones has died at the age of 66 after suffering a heart attack has fans and those in the music industry remembering the star. Jones’ Monkees bandmate Peter Tork has released the following statement on his Facebook fan page, about the late singer: “It is with great sadness that I reflect on the sudden passing of my long-time friend and fellow-adventurer, David Jones. His talent will be much missed; his gifts will be with us always. My deepest sympathy to Jessica and the rest of his family. Adios, to the Manchester Cowboy. Peace and love, Peter T.”

Fellow Monkee Micky Dolenz has also released a statement: “I am in a state of shock; Davy and I grew up together and shared in the unique success of what became The Monkees phenomena. The time we worked together and had together is something I’ll never forget. He was the brother I never had and this leaves a gigantic hole in my heart. The memories have and will last a lifetime. My condolences go out to his family.”

In a statement to EW, the Beatles drummer Ringo Starr said of Jones’ passing, “God bless Davy. Peace & Love to his family.” (The Monkees and the Beatles were friendly rivals; the Monkees’ “Randy Scouse Git” song was even inspired by a party the Beatles hosted for the “Daydream Believer” band.)

Andy Kim, who sang “Rock Me Gently” and wrote the Archies’ “Sugar, Sugar,” said in a statement about his contemporary Jones: “Everybody loved Davy’s smile, the way he came across, his incredible presence and [he] was a phenomenal ambassador for a band that didn’t really start off a band, but quickly became a force. The girls thought Davy’s sex appeal mirrors Paul McCartney’s was in the Beatles. I wrote ‘Oh My My’ for Davy and Mickey’s joint album after the Monkees broke up and it was an honor to know him.”

Maureen McCormick, whose Marcia Brady famously asked her crush, Jones,  to sing at her high school prom in a classic episode of The Brady Bunch, said in a statement to EW, “Davy was a beautiful soul who spread love and goodness around the world. He filled our lives with happiness, music and joy.  He will live on in our hearts forever. May he rest in peace.”

Lady Gaga before she was famous: See the shockingly normal photos

Credit: Malgorzata Saniewska

This may just be the most outrageous Lady Gaga look of them all: A stripped-down, gimmick-free Stefani Germanotta. CNN.com has previously unreleased pictures of the crusading pop star in her first photo shoot “Before she was Gaga.”

The photos of a then-19-year-old, which were reportedly taken at her parents apartment on the Upper East Side by Malgorzata Saniewska, a co-worker at the restaurant where she worked at the time, find the pre-Gaga Gaga doing her best Fabulous Baker Boys impression atop a piano in some shots and looking eerily like an early-day Amy Winehouse in others.
