If you’ve ever wanted to watch a combination of Britney Spears’ “Oops!… I Did It Again,” Star Wars, Gravity, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Transformers, Ariana Grande just made your wish come true: Her music video for “Break Free” is all that and more, with the “more” being missiles jetting out of her boobs.

SXSW 2014: Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Pitbull, more to play Austin's first iTunes Festival

Apple is looking for its own bite out of SXSW. The company just announced the first-ever iTunes Festival in Austin, Texas, running for five nights during the city’s South by Southwest music, film, and interactive conference.

The first announced performers are Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Pitbull, Keith Urban, and Zedd, who will take the stage March 11-15 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre, where Austin City Limits is also held.

Not heading to Austin? You can stream all five nights of music through the iTunes Store.

While this is the first iTunes Festival in the U.S., a U.K. fest of the same name has been held annually at London’s Roundhouse theater since 2007, this past fall boasting headliners like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga. More performers and concert details for the Austin incarnation will be announced over the next few weeks.

Paramore's Hayley Williams on touring, Zedd, and fighting

Paramore have hit a lot of milestones this year: They released their first album as a trio, scored their first entry into the radio top 10 with the single “Still Into You,” and are about to embark on their biggest arena tour yet—including their first headlining spot at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

The trek kicks off tomorrow night in Seattle (complete dates are here), but before she packed for the road, singer Hayley Williams took some time out to talk about the new run, the damage done during the “Still Into You” video, and how she ended up on Zedd’s “Stay the Night.”

Entertainment Weekly: You’ve been at this a while, but these are some of the biggest rooms you’ve ever played coming up on this tour. Do you still get nervous?
Hayley Williams: I still get nervous. I get nervous before every show, even if it’s small. I just want everything to be perfect. We’re sort of perfectionists until we get out there, and then once we get out there, anything goes. I have really big butterflies — I’m kind of freaking out about all these rooms. I’m really excited and, like, throwing up in my mouth about Madison Square Garden.

So what sort of show are you putting on in Madison Square Garden?
Have you ever seen that war scene in Metallica’s show? We’re not doing that. [Laughs] We have never actually done a big production. We generally tend to show up on stage with our gear and a backdrop and some pretty lights. So we put a lot more thought into this show. The set list is longer; we’re playing almost two hours every night. I feel so old—I cannot believe we’re playing two hours a night! But when we’re playing it goes by so fast for me. READ FULL STORY

Zedd, Hayley Williams drop dramatically choreographed 'Stay the Night' video: Watch it here

The new clip from Zedd and Hayley Williams has everything: choreographed lovers, moody piano-playing, and plenty of Beats.

That’s right, capital ‘B’ — the “Stay the Night” video is littered with Beats Pills product placements, a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. But it’s also got your favorite Russian-German DJ (coming off his recent smash single “Clarity”) and Paramore frontlady, together at last.

Check them out in the video below:

SXSW: Macklemore, Tegan and Sara do it for the kids at the MTVU Woodie Awards

GEEK-MACKLEMORE-LEWIS

There were so many decked out college kids at the MTVU Woodie Awards on Thursday, you’d think a ModCloth warehouse exploded somewhere nearby.

There were girls with neon face paint smeared across the bridges of their noses like hippie warpaint. There was a guy with a turtle shell strapped to his front and a stuffed Yoda doll hanging off his back. Someone was holding a giant pinwheel high in the crowd, and someone else was dancing with plastic flowers woven into her hair.

Everyone was getting hopped up on Mountain Dew. And no one had any patience for the slow songs. They wanted high kicks and laser lights and fog machines and, above all, somebody—anybody!—to shout, MAKE SOME NOISE!
