Ahead of her appearance on Friday night’s ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’, a performance at the AMP Awards and her first show at Barcelona’s Sónar Festival, Sky Ferreira is now releasing a set of official remixes from her debut release. Listen to a pair by Benny Cassette, ‘Blame Myself’ and ‘You’re Not the One’, via Soundcloud below the cut.
Tegan and Sara nabbed three awards at the 2014 Juno Awards over the weekend. The Quin sisters led the way for all Juno nominees. The pair’s seventh studio album ‘Heartthrob’ earned them their first three Juno Awards – Pop Album of The Year, Single of the Year (‘Closer’) and Group of the Year versus artists that included Robin Thicke, Arcade Fire and Michael Bublé.
The Calgary born twins also performed their hit single ‘Closer’ on the Juno Awards show, broadcast nationally Sunday evening. Tegan and Sara are launching their second single from this album cycle this spring, ‘I Was A Fool’, the follow up to their successful first single ‘Closer’.
Avicii checked in with fans on his Facebook with the following message:
“I’m really sorry but as some of you have already heard, I will not be playing Ultra Festival this weekend.
My fans know that I have had issues in the past with my stomach and pancreatitis… I woke up on Wednesday morning with serious pain but I flew to Miami anyway, hoping that it would go away. The pain was still there when I landed so I went straight to hospital. I was treated and left later that night.
Unfortunately, the pain came back yesterday afternoon and I returned to the hospital where they admitted me to stay overnight.
My doctors have decided to operate and remove my gall bladder tomorrow morning.
It’s a routine procedure and all going well, I expect to be fully recovered and back on my feet in time for my US True Tour.
Thanks for your concern everyone, it means a lot to me!”

Justin Timberlake is out with a video documentary set to his new single ‘Not A Bad Thing’, a track from the American pop singer’s fourth studio album ‘The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2′, out now on RCA Records. The Dennis Liu directed video features A parade of people try to put the power of love into words, with JT’s song serving as the soundtrack. Watch it via VEVO below.
VEVO caught up with Miley Cyrus to talk about her ‘Bangerz’ Tour, who showed them every aspect of her new extravaganza. “I haven’t toured in awhile, so I’m getting to go to these places where I haven’t been to in over two years,” Miley explained. “My favorite part is going on tour. I kind of make records to perform. When you hear people scream at you and you see everyone waiting blocks and blocks around outside, you get this nervous feeling, but you should always be nervous because that shows you really care about what you do.” Watch the feature below.
Demi Lovato is out with behind the scenes footage from the shooting of her ‘Neon Lights’ music video, featuring commentary from makeup artist Jill Powell, though no words from Demi herself.
“The concept and treatment for the video was actually Demi’s idea,” Powell explained. “I was with her one day when she all of the sudden said, ‘I know what I want to do with my ‘Neon Lights’ video’, and started pulling up images and we were looking through them together and that’s when the excitement really started, so when we were on set today and doing the makeup, it was just so much fun. It’s kind of a club/party atmosphere. It was just really a cool vibe.”

Jennifer Lopez is out with the music video to her new single ‘I Luh Ya Papi’, featuring French Montana, off the American pop singer’s upcoming eighth studio album on Capitol Records.
Discussing the collaboration with French Montana on the single, the 44-year-old said, “We’re both from New York, and we both have similar backgrounds, and I wanted this record to have that vibe and he was just perfect for it so I was so happy when he heard this record and wanted to be a part of it.”

Demi Lovato is out with the music video to her latest single ‘Neon Lights’, the third release off the American pop singer’s self-titled fourth studio album ‘Demi’, out now on Hollywood Records. The Ryan Pallotta directed video features plenty of neon.
Producer Ryan Tedder spoke with the UK’s Capital FM about the song and the vocals delivered by the singer and actress. “She came in and just ripped it,” Tedder said. “She in pop music has one of the biggest ranges, possibly the highest full voice singer I’ve ever worked with. She can belt full voice like three octaves above middle C, it’s just crazy, and with complete power and complete control. At the beginning she’s singing the lowest note she’s ever done and by the end she’s going as high as she’s ever gone.”

Demi Lovato reacted strongly on Twitter (@ddlovato) to the Lady Gaga performance at SXSW on Thursday night at Stubb’s BBQ, where the singer was vomited on by friend and “vomit painter” Millie Brown, who drank a bottle of neon green liquid before forcing herself to throw up on the Gaga while she played drums. Demi interpreted the stunt in poor taste in regards to eating disorders, writing on the micro blogging site:
Sad… As if we didn’t have enough people glamorizing eat disorders already. Bottom line, it’s not “cool” or “artsy” at all.
Would you let someone bring a needle and shoot up on you? Addiction is addiction.
It’s not “shade” and it’s not “hate”. But someone has to come forward and say it and I’ll take the heat for it.
@ladygaga you’re SO talented, if not one of the most talented in our industry PERIOD. Dope is INCREDIBLE.. but you don’t have to do that
So it’s cool if I do a speech about self-harm and then proceed to watch someone cut themselves on my stage? No. That doesn’t make it OKAY RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato Gaga herself struggled with an eating disorder. She gave a moving speech BEFORE her performance & I highly doubt her intention
Putting the word ART in it isn’t a free card to do whatever you want without consequences. RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato That wasn’t the POINT! The girl was an ARTIST
That’s an ignorant thing to say and you clearly don’t know anything about mental illnesses or addiction. RT @kingsleyyy: @ddlovato And you know comparing self-harm to this situation doesn’t even make sense. Accusing someone of “glamorizing” something they struggled with is WRONG.
Activists don’t shut up. If no one raises their voice, how are we supposed to be heard?
