AND these supreme stars are just some of the multitude of mega talent that will be taking part in the music video awards orgy-extravaganza that is the MTV Video Music Awards 2012!
Katy Perry has been nominated for Video of the Year with her fantastical adventure-time vid for Wide Awake, and Rihanna's dark and twisty tale of emotionally (and physically) damaging romance AKA We Found Love will be competing alongside!
Riri is also getting props in the best video category for the smooth and somber visuals for her and Drake's Take Care, and M.I.A. will be throwing her galang-spiced towel in for her death-defying CRAY vehicular stunts in the desert-set, dash-board banging vid for Bad Girls!
And, rounding out the Video of the Year nominations for 2012 is the paint-splattered vid for Gotye's Somebody I Used to Know.
Ooooo we can't WAIT to see what ridiculous schemes MTV is cooking up for our viewing pleasure!

The supremely talented Janelle Monae recently revealed that not only is she putting the finishing touches on a brand new album, which will drop in 2012, but that she's planning on releasing another to be released in the same year!
According to a new interview:
The British singer was spotted walking the streets in a leather jacket over a crisp high-collar shirt, black leggings and large sunnies. Natalia was also sporting a hair poof that's awfully similar to Karl's muse Janelle Monae.

In case you couldn't tell by the covers, W magazine's July issue is all about music and of course, fashion.
To play up their theme du mois, the mag rounded up some name designers and asked them to dish on their musical muses, some of which are kinda surprising.
Here are some HIGHlights from the spread:
Gucci creative director Frida Giannini on Florence Welch:
"I was captivated by her eccentric style and her willingness to dare. She embodies the cinematic allure and seductive power that is its essence."
Burberry's Christoper Bailey on George Craig:
"For me, George embodies the modern British look."
Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa on Esperanza Spalding:
"I admire her passion and confidence— she is truly a free spirit."
