Kat DeLuna - Run The Show [Live]

Kat DeLuna performed on Regis & Kelly in America this morning. She gave a brilliant performance of her latest single "Run The Show, which feautrs Busta Rhymes in the single edit. I love Kat, and her performances are always energetic and great to watch. Hopefully "Run The Show" will keep rising in the charts and will do some favours to her album "9 Lives", which stalled at #58 in the U.S. charts last year.
What do you think of Kat's performance?

Ashlee Simpson - Boys [Live!]

Ashlee Simpson was at "Dancing With The Stars" in the U.S. recently, and she performed a track from her new album "Bittersweet World". She performed "Boys" and the performance was brilliant, Ashlee killed it with this one. Hopefully "Boys" will be a single at some point as it's a brilliant song and could be huge for Ashlee!

Girlicious - Like Me [Video]

Pussycat Doll's founder Robin Antin has formed a new group on TV, called Girlicious. The four piece has just been revealed to the public, and they are releasing "Like Me" as their main debut single, along with other track "Stupid Shit". Not as good as the Pussycat Dolls, but definately worth a listen! Great video, and equally great track.

Ashlee Simpson - Sales Update!

Ashlee Simpson's third album doesn't look set to debut at #1, like her two previous efforts, but will nonetheless be the highest debut of the week. "Hits" reports the following...


SIMPLY SIMPSON: Ashlee Simpson, or should we say Mrs. Pete Wentz, will be the highest-charted debut next week with her new Geffen album, Bittersweet World, on track for between 50-55k in sales, a figure that could go higher consider she’ll be on the hit ABC show, Dancing with the Stars tonight.

That's pretty poor sales considering Ashlee's previous sales, but with lots of promotion coming up this week and single "Little Miss Obsessive" finally cracking the iTunes top 100 chart, things could get better for Ashlee!

It was a wonderful performance, considering Ashlee doesn't have the best live voice! Well done!

Janet Jackson - Update!

Janet Jackson's latest album "Discipline" hasn't exactly set the charts alight, however there is a confirmation of a new single coming early May. The track is ballad "Can't B Good" which imo, isn't the best choice of single. Should be a big hit on urban radio, and you can view the cover above!

Ashlee Simpson Pregnant?

So is Ashlee Simpson pregnant? That's been the word on the street ever since Wednesday, when Ashlee and boyfriend Pete Wentz confirmed their engagement. eFluxMedia reports the following:

A source confirmed to usmagazine.com and OK! magazine's Web site that that the singer, 23, is expecting her first child with fiance Pete Wentz, 28.

Simpson and the Fall Out Boy frontman announced their engagement Wednesday.

But if you ask Wentz, there's nothing to the rumors. "There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood," he wrote in an e-mail to MTV News. "This is all news to me. ... I mean really, this is crazy. ... I mean we're engaged, that's true, and happy about it."

...so what do you think ?

Billboard Chart Updates!

Here's the latest update from Billboard on the U.S. Charts:

Mariah Carey's "Touch My Body" begins a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, fending off the resurgent "Bleeding Love" by Leona Lewis, which jumps 4-2. Madonna's "4 Minutes" holds at No. 3 after selling 217,000 digital downloads.

Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" rises 7-4 and is the fastest growing digital track on the Hot 100. "Lollipop" also zooms 7-1 on Hot Rap Songs, the largest position leap and quickest move to No. 1 on the tally since it moved to an audience-based metric in 1999.

Back on the Hot 100, Usher's "Love in This Club" featuring Young Jeezy slips 2-5, Ray J and Yung Berg's "Sexy Can I" remains No. 6 and Jordin Sparks' "No Air" featuring Chris Brown slides 5-7, despite being the fastest growing track at radio.

Chris Brown's "With You" holds at No. 8, as does Sara Bareilles' "Love Song" at No. 9. Flo Rida's "Low" featuring T-Pain is No. 10 for a second week to round out the top tier.

The Hot 100's top debut is Radiohead's "Nude" at No. 37, the band's first appearance on this chart since "High & Dry" in 1996. R.E.M. also returns to the Hot 100 with "Supernatural Superserious" at No. 85; the rockers were last on the tally with "Imitation of Life" in 2001.

Any thoughts?

Foxy Brown to be released from Prison.

Billboard reports the following:

After serving eight months at the Rose M. Singer facility in New York's Rikers Island, Foxy Brown will be released from jail on April 18, according to her manager Chaz Williams.

"She did every single minute of her bid in jail, and she did it under the most severe conditions," Williams tells Billboard.com. "They had her on continuous lockdown just because she is a celebrity. They were trying to break her spirit."

Williams revealed that Brown, born Inga Marchand, is in talks with a couple of television networks for a potential documentary and reality show on her life.

Upon her release, Brown will also prep for the release of her oft-delayed album, "Brooklyn's Don Diva," now due May 13 via Black Rose Entertainment/Black Hand/Koch. "She's going to get on top of her career again. She's ready to hit the ground running and do anything she needs to do to get her career back on point," says Williams.

As previously reported, Brown was sentenced on Sept. 8, 2007, to a year in jail for violating her probation after several arrests, including an altercation with two nail salon employees in August 2004 and assaulting a neighbor with a BlackBerry cell phone.

Kylie tanks in the U.S Chart!

Kylie Minogue's latest album might have been a success in Australia and in Europe too, but American's obviously weren't feeling K's new set "X". "X" debuted at #139 in the U.S! That's pretty poor for Ms. Minogue who has had success in the US previously and did extensive promo in the U.S. :( Pooor news for Kylie, and although I'm not a fan it is really bad news. Many blame the fact that "X" was released digitally in the U.S. in 2007 so it hindered sales!

- In other news, Leona Lewis is set to debut at #1 in the U.S. with debut album Spirit. The singer has already hit the singles chart with "Bleeding Love" and the HitsDaily reported sales of 200,000+ for "Spirit". Great news for a British singer!

Chanelle Hayes - I Want It [Video]

Chanelle Hayes is releasing her debut single! For those who don't know who Chanelle is, she was in the last series of Big Brother in the UK and was the big character of the whole series! She has decided to launch a pop career and this is the final product - "I Want It". The track itself isn't too nasty, but the video is tacky!

Here's Avril Lavigne's new video for single "The Best Damn Thing". The song is the fourth single from her third album of the same name. I love this track, it's a big highlight from Avril's album. It's been a big gap between singles, since "Hot" was released way back in 2007. Oh well, I'm just pleased to get another video!

Blast From The Past: Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is releasing her 11th studio album on April 14th. To celebrate, I've found one of Mariah's most classic video's "Heartbreaker". The track was a #1 single for Mariah back in 1999 and featured Jay-Z. A year later, 2000, Mariah was announced to be the best selling artist of the 1990's and the best selling female artist of all-time. What an achievement, and all before she's 40! Go Mariah, and congrats to MC on her 18th U.S. #1 for "Touch My Body". She is now only second to the Beatles for #1 singles! Enjoy the video!
