• Charli XCX Sucker Debut Live Video

    Charli XCX Previewed 'Sucker' With Six Unreleased Songs in Orlando

    Despite the fact that the release of her third studio album Sucker was just recently pushed back to December, warped pop wonder Charli XCX decided to use the first date of her fall tour to debut a whole host of songs from that forthcoming record. According to Stereogum, at a venue called The Social in Orlando, Florida, the True Romance singer performed six new tracks—called "Sucker," "Famous," "Caught In The Middle," "I Need Your Love," "Money," and "Gold Coins"—that could all see release come the winter months, and you can watch the debuts of two of those tracks above and below. Both hew pretty closely to the neon-tinted synth-pop that she's explored over the course of her career, while giving the extra emotive push that has placed recent singles like "Boom Clap" and "Break the Rules" among her best work to date. Watch the rendition record's title track above and "Famous" below.

  • Ariana Grande Chris Pratt Saturday Night Live Promo Video

    Ariana Grande and Chris Pratt Spar in an Awkward 'Saturday Night Live' Promo

    Current pop culture darlings Ariana Grande and Chris Pratt are set to ring in this year's iteration of Saturday Night Live on music and hosting duties respectively, but in the season's first promo videos, things seem a little more tense than you might expect. Though its all surely in good spirits, in the first clip released the "Break Free" singer rebuffs a compliment from the Guardian of the Galaxy star by noting that his work makes her "um...tired." In the second and more unbelievable of the two clips, Pratt asks that Grande translate the promo "for our Spanish viewers." When she helpfully informs him that she's actually of Italian descent, he quickly changes gears and asks "do you want to...pizza?" It's all just about as awkward as it sounds, and the feigned animosity could portend an exciting episode of the show, which kicks of this Saturday, September 27.

    Relive R.E.M.'s Greatest MTV Moments With 'REMTV' Box Set

    Earlier this year, former R.E.M. guitarist Mike Mills promised that the band wouldn't simply be emptying the vaults of all their unreleased material, but after a couple of massive reissues, the band has returned again with news of another box set. This one, however, won't draw on just the Athens janglers' unreleased stocks of audio, but will team with MTV to track the entirety of their career through a 6-DVD set.Titled REMTV, the package features a whole host of award show performances, their two MTV Unplugged sessions, a VH1 Storytellers set, and a new documentary, among other live music moments. Disc one compiles those Unplugged performances and outtakes. The second disc has the Storytellers performance and award show songs.

  • Taylor Swift Secret Album Listening Party Cat Video

    Taylor Swift Invited a Bunch of Fans Over to Her House to Listen to Her Album

    Instead of taking her new album and forcibly putting it into your house, Taylor Swift has taken the opposite tactic and opened up her Los Angeles home to interested listeners. Over the weekend, the "Shake It Off" singer showed off 1989 for a few devoted fans, but it wasn't just a typical album listening party. According to MTV, as well as a slew of Polaroids posted to Twitter, Swift invited a slew of superfans over for a five-hour celebration of the new record.There were cookies and dancing and cats and polaroids, just about everything you might expect from an afternoon at the Swift residence. Check out all the pictures below, and as a bonus, catch a video of her cat Meredith Grey, whom all these people presumably got to hang out with.I MET TAYLOR SWIFT AT HER HOME IN L.A.

    Miley Cyrus Will Design You a Custom Tattoo for Just $10,000

    Ever wanted to get something designed by a celebrity permanently inked onto your body? Do you have an extra $10,000 sitting around? If the answer to both of those questions is an emphatic "yes" then Miley Cyrus might want a word with you. The budding visual artist and provocateur's ongoing partnership with Los Angeles homeless youth center My Friend's Place has spawned a unique opportunity for diehard Miley fans. As part of a contest to benefit the shelter, as MTV points out, the Bangerz singer will design a custom tattoo for you for just ten grand. What a bargain right?It's a move only slightly less bold than bringing one of the homeless young people in question to the VMAs to accept her award, but this whole thing is all for an important cause so that makes it a little bit easier to overlook the ridiculousness.

  • Kanye West Common AAHH! Vince Staples Jay Electronica Surprise Show Video

    Kanye West Surprised Common's AAHH! Fest With a 16-Song Greatest Hits Set

    Though he's always showing up in places you wouldn't expect him to be, there's still really no bigger "special surprise guest" you can have on your lineup than Kanye West. When Common announced his inaugural AAHH! Fest back in August, Yeezy wasn't officially billed, but Sunday night he showed up in classic form, running through a set of some of his most crowd-pleasing hits including "Jesus Walks," "Power," "Mercy," and "Clique." Kanye closed out his set in Chicago's Union Park with Common on stage for a rendition of their collaborative track "Get 'Em High." Common also brought out Vince Staples and Jay Electronica to perform a forthcoming remix of his own "Kingdom." You can catch some shaky and distorted fan-shot video both above and below via Pitchfork.

    Watch Lorde, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift's Full Sets at IHeartRadio Festival

    The annual pop star convention that is the IHeartRadio Music Festival went down over the weekend at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Resort and Casino and from the livestreams that have been dutifully captured by enterprising fans, it seems like there was a lot to love. Lorde, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift all offered up stunning, if short, performances of all of their recent singles, as well as a smattering of the work that's rocketed each of them to the top of the charts to begin with. Coldplay and Ariana Grande also took to the stage for victory laps in celebration of Ghost Stories and My Everything, respectively. Usher too ran through a selection of recent hits, for which he enlisted Chris Brown for a little bit of help. You can catch all of those snack-sized sets right here, starting with Lorde up above.

  • Beyonce Jay Z on the run tour Young Forever Halo Video

    Beyonce and Jay Z Light Up a Stadium in HBO Performance of 'Young Forever,' 'Halo'

    Over the weekend, HBO finally aired Beyoncé and Jay Z's "On the Run" concert documentary, but fortunately if you missed it—or don't happen to have a premium cable package—the duo has shared another clip from the film. Though we've already seen a short film composed of the b-roll as well as a couple of teasers and trailers, Bey and Jay have shared the first performance from the doc in the form of a stunning medley of The Blueprint 3's "Young Forever" and "Halo."Introducing the songs, Jay Z asks that the entirety of the Paris, France crowd to put up their cellphones and "light the stadium up," but even if they hadn't responded in kind, the performance (backed by nostalgic home videos) probably would have done a good enough job. It'll be enough to get you even more excited for that rumored collaborative album, at the very least. Watch the seven-minute medley up above.

  • Thom Yorke Mysterious Record Photo Nigel Godrich Stanley Donwood Tumblr

    Thom Yorke Teases World With Mysterious Photo of White Record

    UK-based man of mystery/Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke was up to his usual manipulations this weekend. In a post to the Tumblr he shares with artist Stanley Donwood, Yorke shared a photo of a mysterious white record on a turntable with what appears to be two album sleeves in the background. As Consequence of Sound reports, some fans are interpreting this as a covert sign that new music is coming from one of Yorke's projects, and given the fact that the link has subsequently been shared by producer Nigel Godrich and (as of this morning) the official Radiohead account, all signs are pointing in that direction.It'd be strange for this to be new tunes for Radiohead proper.
