For the Record: Usher Kisses, Sings, Dances and Drums


  • The first single off Usher‘s upcoming but as yet untitled album is here, and it’s good. Watch him drum without a shirt, rave about kissing(?) and show off his moves in the new video for “Good Kisser”:


  • Adam Levine is blonde now. Shield your eyes.



  • Lil Wayne‘s upcoming album Tha Carter V is supposed to be his last, but first single “Believe Me”, featuring Drake, will make you wish it wasn’t:


  • Nobody can do sad and romantic like Lana Del Rey; here she is in both grainy black and white and fiery color in her new “West Coast” video:


  • Monica Lewinsky has responded to Beyoncé‘s “Partition” lyric mentioning her – He popped all my buttons and he ripped my blouse / He Monica Lewinsky’d all on my gown – with a grammar correction, saying “Thanks, Beyoncé, but if we’re verbing, I think you meant ‘Bill Clinton’d’ all on my gown, not ‘Monica Lewinsky’d.'” And yet, neither of them has explained why Bey was wearing a blouse over her gown.
  • It’s time for a visit by the spirit of boy bands past – Backstreet Boy Nick Carter and New Kid on the Block Jordan Knight are teaming up for an album in September and a U.S. tour this fall. Watch them reenact some of their boy band photos here and look out for first single “Just the Two of Us”.
  • Future and Kanye have released a video game to go along with new track “I Won”, in which you can get cartoon versions of both rappers to throw chains at women in bikinis, turning them into trophies with each hit. You can play it here but know I’ll be judging you silently.
  • But I won’t be judging you if you tear up listening to Ed Sheeran‘s new one “All of the Stars”, off the soundtrack of new film The Fault in Our Stars, based on the book of the same name:


  • Adele has caused a frenzy among her fans after tweeting “Bye bye 25… See you again later in the year x” on her 26th birthday last week, leading followers to speculate that a new album referencing that age is coming soon. Adele’s previous two albums 19 and 21 each included tracks about her life at each age, so we can keep our fingers crossed that new music is coming soon.
