Pink, Alicia Keys, and Taylor Swift next up for 'VH1 Storytellers' treatment -- EXCLUSIVE

VH1 Storytellers is hitting up Grammy-winning ladies for its coming season: Pink, Alicia Keys, and Taylor Swift are the next batch of artists to be featured on VH1’s long-running music-interview franchise, EW has learned exclusively.

“I have always loved Storytellers and, as a songwriter, how much fun it is to be able to tell your stories,” Pink told EW exclusively about being included in the line-up. Of her stories, Pink adds with a wink: “Everyone has heard mine before!”

The newest season of Storytellers launches Nov. 11, with VH1 Storytellers: Taylor Swift airing at 11 p.m. The episode roll-out is fast and furious after that, with VH1 Storytellers: Alicia Keys and VH1 Storytellers: Pink airing at 11 p.m on over the next two days, on Nov. 12 and Nov. 13, respectively. The episodes will also air on the Storytellers website.

As an additional bit of news on this front, Taylor Swift — always looking to connect with her fans in new ways — this morning announced a concert to dovetail with her Storytellers taping. She’ll tape her episode at a winning high school or college in the continental U.S. Through Sept. 23, students can vote for their school at a special website, which also includes more details about the contest. The schools with the top five votes will each receive a $10,000 grant for their music department from Swift and student hub Chegg’s philanthropic program, Chegg for Good.

The episodes, as always, will feature the artists performing and sharing stories in front of an intimate audience about their lives, lyrics, and careers. Over the years, artists as varies as Elton John, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, and Christina Aguilera have been on Storytellers.

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


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:


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.


RCA Records retires Jive, J Records, and Arista

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that RCA Records has folded J Records, Arista Records, and Jive into parent label, RCA. The label issued a statement to EW explaining that the move was “an effort to refresh RCA Records,” and “all label imprints (J Records, Arista Records and Jive) will now be under the the iconic RCA Records label.” Among the artists who will be affected by the change are Jive tentpoles (Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake), singers from Arista (Alicia Keys, Pink, Usher), and J Records acts, including Pitbull.

Pink tweets on Christina Aguilera's drinking bust: 'Didn't everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker?'

Pink-Christina-AguileraImage Credit: Todd Duffey/PR Photos; Christopher Polk/Getty ImagesOnce upon a time, there was beef between our Ladies of the Marmalade.

More recently, a certain kind of tweet-y peace had seemingly been brokered between Christina Aguilera and Pink. Still, the latter is not above a good-natured 140-character poke at her former rival in aughties pop supremacy—two rivals, actually.

Today, following Aguilera’s detainment for public intoxication, she posted to her official Twitter: “Out of Myself, Britney, and Christina—didn’t everyone think I was gonna be the troublemaker? LOOK MA!!! No CUFFS!!”

It’s true that the original don’t-let-me-get-me girl does seem to have settled happily into married-and-expecting adulthood, raising her glass to rebellion largely in her music, and leaving the thornier tabloid adventures to Brit and Xtina. Is Pink right to say that’s not how we all expected it to play out? Tell us what you think in the comments, below.

Bruno Mars' 'Grenade' No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for fourth week

Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” spends its fourth week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, though it’s the single’s first back-to-back appearance on top. Pink’s “F**kin’ Perfect” likely will take his spot soon, but until then, it rests at No. 2. And No. 3 is Katy Perry’s “Firework.”

Check out the rest of the top 10 after the jump.


Pink's 'F–––in' Perfect' video takes a dark look at depression

Pink’s new video for her song “F—in’ Perfect” wades into some pretty dark waters: attempted suicide, gruesome self-mutilation, an implied eating disorder, and an overarching theme of soul-crushing social alienation. But…hey, it’s Tina Majorino! I can’t believe Mac from Veronica Mars (hell, Toni from Andre) is grown-up enough to play a mom. Anyway, warning: The video contains strong language and some disturbing, NSFW imagery: READ FULL STORY
