We love pop music!
It has the power to make you feel good, inspire and pick you up when you're down!
That's what Rachel Platten's Fight Song does!
If you're a fan of Sara Bareilles, you're gonna love this!
Check out the goodness above!
Sweet Rhythm Nation we've been waiting for this for like, forever!!
As a birthday surprise (hers is today, May 16) Janet Jackson tweeted out a link to a mysteriously sexy video, which features her voice and some VERY thrilling information…
She'll be gifting the world with new music AND a world tour in 2015 — AHH!
Jackson's last studio album was 2008's Discipline, so this announcement has been a long time coming. It's almost hard to believe, considering just last week Atlantic Records denied that Janet was releasing a collection of jams this summer.
In the clip uploaded to Vimeo, you hear the songbird coo:
"I promised you'd hear it from my lips and now you will. This year: new music; new world tour; a new movement. I've been listening. Let's keep the conversation going."
We wonder what this "movement" is?! After being out of the spotlight for years, this is SUCH a tease!
Ch-ch-check out the entire cryptic teaser (below)!
Jenny from the Block appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' show on Friday and told the TV host that she would like to give her twins, Max and Emme, more siblings.
Specifically, 4 to 5 more kids!! What the what?!
"I would love to have more kids. I love my kids, I wish I would have four or five more. If I got pregnant I would be so excited."
"Maybe. Maybe… I love kids. I love the whole experience. I'm such a like heart creature like that's where I kind of operate from, so it's like the fact that you get to love somebody unconditionally in that way and not even care if they love you back you just love them so much. Like that relationship that's the biggest blessing in the world is to be able to love somebody like that."
And it seems that the Selena actress would love to be surrounded by hoards of children.
Could 11-year-old Hayden Panettiere be more precious?!
On Friday, a video of a young Hayden paying homage to Britney Spears resurfaced…and it's AH-mazing.
In the clip, the blonde beauty confidently belts out Spears' hit, (You Drive Me) Crazy to the delight of Rosie O'Donnell's talk show audience.
At the time of the performance, Panettiere had just starred in Remember the Titans.
Check out the cuteness(below)!
So precious! We wonder if Hayden will share this clip with her daughter when she's old enough!!

The Bellas have some competition!
Sexy James Maslow of Big Time Rush has covered one of the hits from Pitch Perfect 2, and he's joined by none other than one of the film's new additions: Chrissie Fit (who plays Flo)!
So, in a matter of speaking, James and Chrissie are covering a cover!
James told us EXCLUSIVELY of their collaboration:
As soon as I met Chrissie, I knew I wanted to collaborate with her! She is an incredibly kind and talented girl, and putting together this cover was nothing but fun! She suggested Flashlight by Jesse J, which is a beautiful song that is largely featured in Chrissie's new movie, Pitch Perfect 2. It was also written by two of my favorite artists, Sia and Sam Smith, so for me this was a no brainer. I just hope everyone likes our rendition!
Ch-ch-check out their version above! Is it aca-amazing? Perhaps James can appear in Pitch Perfect 3!
Pitch Perfect 2 is out in theaters now!
Human Barbie is finally fessing up!
In a May 15 interview, Human Barbie, who's real name is Valeria Luykyanova, admitted to using Photoshop in a few recent photos.
The controversial pics, which show Valeria looking impossibly svelte in short-shorts and very un-human, have been altered to "achieve smoothness and color correction".
"The pictures were taken in the botanical garden on the phone. They were not high quality. I had to edit them in order to correct the defects of the phone picture."
Hmm, that looks like A LOT of "editing" to us!!
Valeria's admission doesn't come as a shock to those who've followed her on social media — the Russian is often called out for her seemingly altered photos.
In response to the Photoshop backlash, Human Barbie explained:
"There may have been some negative comments. I did not see them. Beautiful people are often envied. That's why negativity does not surprise me. Instead, it touches me."
So, are YOU surprised by the admission?

Ed Helms is NOT a fan of Rolling Stone.
During the University of Virginia's commencement speech on Friday, Ed slammed Rolling Stone for its debunked December 2014 article, A Rape on Campus.
The controversial article initially portrayed the university as an institution which allowed and promoted a rape culture, a characterization that was discredited in a lengthy investigation.
In his speech, Helms made it clear that the negative perception of UVA caused by the article should not define the 2015 college graduates, saying:
"It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss. I would say that a rolling stone sometimes gathers no facts or even the tiniest morsel of verifiable journalistic integrity. Rolling Stone tried to define you. Don't let others define you; define yourselves. Rolling Stone's rush to define is just the tip of the iceberg."
Yep, it's quite clear how the actor really feels about the publication!!
Ed went on to explain how labels can be detrimental to Americans at large, like how "thug" is a term often and unfairly used to depict African Americans in the media.
So, what do YOU think of the comedian's comments?
