How much does pop princesa Charli XCX know and love her fanbase? Definitely enough to try her hand at singing "Boom Clap," one of last year's biggest hits, in Japanese, for special release of Sucker on Warner Music Japan. Unsure how she fared as my Japanese is a little rusty, but at least two people in the always… » 1/28/15 9:35am 1/28/15 9:35am

Charli XCX and Rita Ora Go Full Thelma & Louise in New Video

Charli XCX and Rita Ora's new "Doing It" video is a spaghetti western of a bank robbery, two high-contrast pop stars bum-rushing a gas station and rolling around the desert in their pink trucks. It's not quite as fatalist or committed as Thelma & Louise, insofar that they do not die in the end. But Charli seems super… » 1/20/15 2:40pm 1/20/15 2:40pm

Here's Charli XCX's New Single 'Doing It,' Now With Extra Rita Ora

"Doing It" might be my favorite track off Charli XCX's excellent bubble-punk pop album SUCKER, and Charli just released a new version featuring everyone's favorite Who's That Girl, Oh Yeah, It's Rita Ora. Everything's exactly the same as the star-spangled original—I love the tense, sky-high whip of the chorus—except… » 1/08/15 3:30pm 1/08/15 3:30pm

Gowns, Kilts and All the Nicki Minaj Outfits at the 2014 MTV EMAs

Nicki Minaj hosted the 2014 MTV European Music Awards and, more importantly, treated the stage like her personal walk-in closet. I especially liked the country club Barb vibe of the green-collar Alexander Wang dress. See the rest of the attendees below. » 11/10/14 2:10pm 11/10/14 2:10pm

The full tracklist for the Lorde-curated Hunger Games soundtrack is awesome, random: Lotta new Lorde tracks, Raury, Charli XCX, Tinashe, Bat For Lashes, GRACE JONES and a Kanye remix. Lastly, there's an intriguing-sounding intro song by Belgian singer Stromae featuring Lorde, Pusha T, Q-Tip, and Haim. It's called… » 10/21/14 3:40pm 10/21/14 3:40pm

Iggy Wants to Be America's 'One Rapper With a Vagina'

Iggy Azalea astutely noticed that America only has room for one vagina at time when it comes to women in rap, which sounds curiously like Hollywood’s penchant for identifying one woman each award season as the It Girl. Not saying we don’t like looking at ladies like Lupita N’Yongo in all of her fabulous outfits, but… » 4/22/14 7:50pm 4/22/14 7:50pm

Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX Remade Clueless for All Y'all
