Alicia Keys performs to a sold-out crowd in her "New Day" video.
Just when we'd finished sweating (and drooling) over Alicia Keys and Maxwell's steamy love affair in their "Fire We Make" video, now, exactly one week later, Alicia has unveiled a bold and high-energy new video for the Swizz Beatz-produced single "New Day," the latest from 2012's Girl On Fire.

Listen to Emeli Sandé's "Crazy In Love" cover from "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack.
Beyoncé's "Crazy In Love" is, like, A SONG, you know? Meaning that you don't DARE cover it unless you have balls and/or pipes of steel. That said, if anyone's got the chops to cover a Beyoncé song (aside from maybe Jennifer Hudson or Xtina) it's U.K. breakout songstress Emeli Sandé. Plus, it's kiiiiind of an honor to be asked to cover "Crazy In Love" by "The Great Gatsby" soundtrack producer AND Beyoncé's husband, Jay-Z. Not to mention the fact that Beyoncé, who appears on the "Gatsby" soundtrack as well covering Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black," isn't even singing her own song. Can anyone say... PRESSURE?

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their wedding vows DRESSED AS CINDERELLA AND PRINCE CHARMING.
NO WORDS. We have literally ZERO WORDS to say about the fact that Mariah Carey and her hubby, Nick Cannon, went all out for their five-year anniversary/ "Dem Babies" birthday by renewing their vows at Disneyland in a "Cinderella"-themed ceremony. Actually, we do have a few words, and they go like this: Renewing your vows at Disneyland is THE MOST Mariah Carey-est thing to do ever. Especially if you're Mariah Carey. She's out-Mariahed herself! This is actually even more Mariah Carey-ier than when she played her own song during her twins' birth. Girlfriend is COMMITTED to being a princess and making sweet fantasies a reality.

Olly Murs poses with a fan in Philly on his trek across the U.S.A.!
We're huge Olly Murs Stans -- his middle name's not Stanley for nothing -- around here (The voice! The face! THE ACCENT! THE FACE!), so you can only imagine how REVVED we are to bring you an exclusive look at a week in the life of Olly as he promotes the U.S. release of his album Right Place Right Time, which is officially out now. Also, we would like to reiterate that we are FULLY on board with the "X Factor U.K." contestant's American takeover, and with
a face vocals like that, we think you should be too. (Also, do you know anyone other than Justin Timberlake who rocks a fedora half as well? OK, well Bruno Mars. But otherwise? No one!)

Jared Leto? Is that you?
We totally get it when famous people don't feel like showing their faces, either because they just don't feel like seeing stars for 10 minutes from all the camera flashes and/or they ran out of their go-to concealer and would like the entire world NOT to see the purple-blue bags under their eyes! That said, in terms of the above photo of Thirty Seconds to Mars' lead singer Jared Leto trying to go MAD incognito while leaving the BBC Radio 1 studios in London, we're kinda like, "BUT WHY??"
First, even if the hypothetical bags under Jared's eyes took over his whole face (ew, that's kind of a sick concept), Jared would still be 99.9 percent more attractive than most people. Second, WE'D KNOW THAT BONE STRUCTURE ANYWHERE! Hiding is absolutely useless. We should point out that it's also possible that since the "Up In The Air" singer is a cool and cultured artist and rocker (i.e. dude worked with Damien Hirst!), he could just be having a "moment." OR maybe he's going "method" for a spy/secret agent movie role? Either way, the moral of the story here is that Jared can rock all the black sunglasses, hoodies, leather jackets, and "All-Black Everything" he wants! WE WILL ALWAYS KNOW IT'S HIM. And we don't care if that makes us sound creepy.

Chrystian plays coy in his "Go" video.
We haven't heard from "Buzz On" alum and Columbus, Ohio, native Chrystian since his "Get It In" video, but bro is BACK and he's armed with a highly conceptual video for his new Lil Twist-assisted jam, "Go." And when we say "highly conceptual," we're not necessarily talking about plot, but rather a slick, black-and-white visual landscape that, if you can believe it, enhances Chrystian's swagger level EVEN MORE.

98 Degrees are back with a brand-new club banger, "Girls Night Out."
We've already established that after looking at their 2.0 album art, the bros from 98 Degrees have aged like a FINE MERLOT (or a chardonnay if you prefer white). But the question still remains: Have their voices aged as well? Yeah, well, according to their brand-new jam, "Girls Night Out," survey says: YES! Props for keeping up with those vocal exercises, guys! Working your pipes is just as important for your career as working your biceps. Well, probably.

It's time for Selena Gomez's "Come & Get It" video to drop. Like, yesterday.
Just when you thought your daily dose of Selena Gomez was over till tomorrow, the Gomez Gods have decided to bestow us with a 30-second preview of Selena's forthcoming "Come & Get It" video! And just like we predicted with that behind-the-scenes photo of Selena filming in a giant lake/pool/quarry/ocean, Selena is ALL about exploring natural, earthy forces in "Come & Get It" -- like a roaring, giant pit of fire, for example.
Watch a preview of Selena's "Come & Get It" video after the jump.
Selena Gomez films her "Come & Get It" video...in WATER.
There's been a lot of Selena Gomez news on our radar these days (that'll get zero complaints from us!), what with her (probably) announcing to the world that Jelena has been RESURRECTED, palling around with Austin Mahone, and chilling with tiny Selena Stans in Justin Bieber T-shirts... ALL IN THE SAME WEEK. Now, the "obsessing over Selena photos" portion of our week continues, this time with the above pic of Sel looking, how shall we say this, miiiiiiighty seductive while doing some sort of interpretive dance in a large body of water as she films her official "Come & Get It" video.
And seriously, it's not like we didn't already know that "Come & Get It" would be a bit more on the en fuego side for Selena (see: her writhing around onstage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards), we just had NO idea she'd take the damn thing to a body of water! (Because being seductive in water is way hotter than being seductive not in water, amirite?) Along with the above photo, Selena captioned: "Music video for Come and Get It coming to you guys really soon." So, yeah, how soon are we talking? Week? Month? 17 days? We just need enough lead time to finish bedazzling the red jumpsuit we'll wear the day of the video's official release.

Miley Cyrus is a total smokeshow in her Elle U.K. outtakes.
We have no shortage of Miley Cyrus pics in our repertoire, but usually they're self-snapped photos, sometimes taken with a dog (or two or three). And don't get us wrong: Even when dressing up like her dogs, Miley ALWAYS looks like a fox. It's just that after seeing some outtakes from her Elle UK spread, we are calling DOUBLE BABE ALERT! Not only is Miley stunning and totally ab-tastic, but she's total marriage material -- OR NOT! Well, as far as we're concerned, the "Fall Down" singer can "Liberty Walk" down the aisle, down her own path, or where she damn well pleases, 'cause even her outtakes are flawless!! (If you've successfully twerked a unicorn onesie, then you win at life forever.)
Inside the issue, the "Ashtrays And Heartbreaks" songstress addresses a TON of our burning questions, the most pressing of which, of course, is her highly publicized (maybe) breakup with Liam Hemsworth. She explained, "We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don't talk about it anymore." Miley also elaborated on why she's cut back in letting the world into her life: "We were too nice to the world and gave them too much insight -- into my life and my puppies and my house -- and I just don't feel they get that privilege anymore. Like on my Twitter, I'm much more . . . not conservative, but you don't see a picture of my dogs. You don't get that personal stuff anymore." UMMMM, not exactly sure if that last part about not posting pics of her dogs is true, but let's just roll with it. Whatever works for you works for us!
