Miley Cyrus names her new album 'BANGERZ,' possibly recruits Britney Spears

To promote her upcoming album, Katy Perry has been posting clever videos promising a new, streamlined persona. To promote her upcoming album, Lady Gaga posted a video in which she gets her septum pierced.

And then there’s Miley Cyrus, who just tweeted the damn title of her upcoming album.

Astute readers will notice that she is spelling that title with a Z at the end, rather than an S:

“Bangers” might work for an album made by her father, but for Miley Cyrus, only a Z will do. (Incidentally, she’s considering going the full Miley and dropping her dad’s name entirely.) READ FULL STORY

Chris Brown says he may quit music

If his tweets are to be believed, we may not have Chris Brown to push around much longer.

Though the controversial R&B star has a new album coming at the end of the month called X, he announced on Twitter that he probably only has one other album left in him. “Don’t worry mainstream America,” he wrote, “After this X album, it’ll probably be my last album.” He followed that up with the statement, “Being famous is amazing when it’s for ur music and talent. I’m tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I’m cool & over it!”

The “mistake” mentioned in that tweet is, presumably, his arrest for domestic assault after attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna the night before the Grammy Awards in 2009. (It should be noted, of course, that Brown was actually 19 when that incident occurred, but math is hard.) And he’s not done making mistakes—just yesterday, Brown turned himself into authorities in Los Angeles to be booked for a hit-and-run case against him.

Though this retirement idea probably won’t stick (the only stars whose retirements mean less than musicians are professional wrestlers), it should be noted that Brown’s nearly 13 million Twitter followers have been getting quite a stream of downers recently, including melancholy musings like “Home don’t feel like home. Too many empty rooms” and “Aspire to be great and the person you wanna be. Don’t conform because ur worth is more than any money or status. We live. We die.”

But with all that new time on his hands, what will Brown do with his time? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Mitch Winehouse isn't thrilled about Beyonce singing his daughter's song

Amy Winehouse’s dad isn’t mad that Beyoncé covered “Back to Black” — along with Andre 3000 — for the soundtrack of Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby. He does, however, seem not quite on board with the idea, much like some of the fallen singer’s fans:

Miley Cyrus shows up in rap video with Lil Kim, hires Britney Spears' manager, may or may not be leaving Twitter

On her 2007 single “See You Again,” Miley Cyrus explains her behavior in front of a boy she likes with the phrase “Just being Miley.”

Back then, “being Miley” she was talking about getting flustered in the presence of a hot dude. Six years later, what does “Just being Miley” mean?

Apparently it means ditching your former manager to sign with Larry Rudolph, best known as Britney Spears’ manager; prepping an album featuring Pharrell Williams and “N—-s in Paris” producer Hit-Boy; and joining Lil Kim and Kim’s protege Tiffany Foxx in the video for a song about getting so drunk your face goes numb.

Get a look at “Twisted” (which also features a verse by Kim) below. READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber becomes most-followed person on Twitter

Miracles happen when you Beliebe.

As of today, Bieber has surpassed Lady Gaga as the most-followed individual on Twitter.  Currently, Bieber has 33,340,747 followers; Gaga, in the number two spot, has 33,334,564. But there’s no hard feelings from Mother Monster. The lady who was the first to pass 10, 20 and then 30 million followers tweeted at Bieber last week, “So proud of @justinbieber and all the Beliebers! I’m only happy to see your fans growing in size, you all deserve it! Monsters support you!”

As they say, with great power comes great responsibility. Here are just a couple of the things Bieber has recently put out there in the twitterverse: READ FULL STORY

New Prince songs streaming online? Thank mysterious Twitter user

Twitter has been a little bit funkier since Sunday, mostly because of an account set up under the name 3rdEyeGirl.

On Sunday, 3rdEyeGirl started linking out to Prince songs, many of which sound like demos and bootlegs. The tracks have been an interesting mix of established tracks (a live version of “Bambi”) and stuff that is unfamiliar (“Same Page Different Book,” which you can check out below).

The tweeter in question has only linked out to four songs (all of which are uploaded to the same YouTube account under the same name), including a remix of Prince’s 2012 single “Rock N Roll Love Affair.”

This may not be exactly what the guys in Rage Against the Machine had in mind.

Dave Mustaine, the temperamental Megadeth frontman who was fired from Metallica in 1983, has found an unlikely target for his ire: Men’s Wearhouse. On Dec. 28, he posted a message on the band’s Facebook wall lambasting the retailer for poor service over the holidays. A gift card that he ordered for his tour manager, he says, was not delivered within the guaranteed two days.

Lady Gaga hops onto documentary bandwagon with photographer Terry Richardson

Music docs: they’re so hot right now! Perhaps that’s why Lady Gaga gave all her Little Monsters a very special Christmas present yesterday by announcing that her “Cake” collaborator Terry Richardson is making a film documenting Gaga’s life, as well as “the creation of ARTPOP” — Gaga’s upcoming album — and the artist’s devoted fanbase.

Jack White slams Lady Gaga in Esquire UK: 'All image with no meaning' -- UPDATE: White clarifies his comments in a formal statement

In a move that will surprise approximately no one, rock messiah Jack White has expressed his distaste for Lady Gaga. The former White Stripes frontman told Esquire UK, “I don’t think she lives it because it’s all artifice.”

He added, “It’s all image with no meaning behind it. You can’t sink your teeth into it. It’s a sound bite. It’s very of this age, because that’s what people want. They want a Twitter line, a jpeg, an MP3.” READ FULL STORY
