MGK is after the dollars in his new song, "Peso," featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill.
When MGK says he needs the dollars, we believe him. Dude did have to make grilled cheese sandwiches with an iron at one point in his career! So when he rhymes about getting paper on his new song, "Peso," featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill (from his forthcoming Black Flag mixtape), we DEF buy his hunger. Though we must warn you, MGK, the exchange rate for pesos is way less than American dollars, so you're gonna need, like, A TON more than you probably anticipated.

Skrillex, aka the Prince of Dubstep, absolutely SHUT DOWN Disneyland.
Is there any happier place on Earth than Disneyland (other than Disney World)? Like, you can spend the entire day surrounded by life-size versions of cartoons from your childhood (or adulthood, who are we kidding?), you can stuff your face with churros and other bad-for-you foods, AND you can ride in plastic versions of your favorite Disney characters! What's not to like?! (Before You Exit know what we're talking about.) And yes, we've been to Disney, but we don't think we've EVER done Disneyland half as well as Skrillex. Judging by these TOO GOOD photos of Skrillex's recent visit to Disneyland, he walked around like a dubstep God among men: spinning in teacups, shooting down roller coasters, and waving his hands in the air (presumably like he didn't care). Us non-famous people may attend theme parks, but celebrities OWN them.

Pharrell Williams sounds pretty upbeat on his new song, "Happy," from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack.
Pharrell Williams has plenty to smile about these days. Not only is he apparently ageless and working with Miley Cyrus on her new album, but he's also recently made a number of funk-flecked appearances on Daft Punk's recent Random Access Memories. (We'll be dancing to "Get Lucky" until it makes us sick.) Well, now Pharrell's got even more of reasons to grin with his new song, "Happy," from the "Despicable Me 2" soundtrack (dropping June 18), on which he also serves as executive producer.

Want to see more tour photos of Before You Exit's cross-country trek with Olly Murs? YES? OK then!
The last time we checked in with pop-rock outfit Before You Exit, they were just starting off the #roadlife while on tour with Olly Murs for his "Right Place Right Time" Tour. Now that a few weeks have passed, they've reached the conclusion of the tour (aww sadz), BUT they took a mess of photos to commemorate the trek with! And before you ask, YES, one of the boys bounces around in a giant bubble. (What's that? You had no idea that was coming? Oh okay, moving along...)
Check out more photos of Before You Exit on the road with Olly Murs after the jump. Read More...
T.I. gets lost in the desert in his "Hello" video.
T.I. is becoming quite the actor! OK, yeah, he's appeared in actual films like "Identity Thief" and "Takers," but we're starting to think that maybe his taste for movie star roles has snuck into his music. That seems to be the case in his new video, "Hello," from his latest album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. With a little help from Cee Lo Green on vocals, T.I. wakes up in the clip dusty and musty on a dirt-side road, trying to piece together what brought him there in the first place. Ugh, been there Tip. If we had a nickel for every time we woke up in a ditch, we'd have... you know what? Not important.

T.I. and Lil Wayne evade the authorities in Tip's "Wit Me" video.
T.I. might be more on his family hustle these days than his... how should we say, not exactly legal hustle, but sometimes old habits die hard -- especially when you hang out with old friends like Lil Wayne. For his new "Wit Me" video, Tip hangs up his "Blurred Lines" tux and instead opts for the fast life of supercharged foreign cars, impossibly beautiful women, and evading the authorities in sunny Miami. It's almost like a hip-hop version of Michael Bay's "Pain And Gain"! (But a little less roided out.)

Drake grows a 'fro and chops for his "Anchorman 2" cameo.
We've felt a few ways about Drake's style: Sometimes he's totally dapper in GQ, and other times he gets meme-ified for his "fashion choices." But NOBODY expected him to reach all the way back to the '70s for his next look! OK, to be fair, Drake does have a reason for this 'fro + chops combo, as he is appearing in "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues"! But you know what? We kind of think he's never looked so natural!
The "Girls Love Beyoncé" rapper was snapped filming a scene from the forthcoming Will Ferrell-led sequel in New York City, and it got us thinking of other decades Drake could borrow from. What if Drizzy went '80s with A Flock Of Seagulls haircut from their "I Ran" video? Or he could go '90s with have tall, braided hair like Coolio? All right, perhaps we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves, and Drake looks fine just the way he is, but you can't blame us for trying. So, in short, our advice to Drake would be do NOT make any ill-advised haircut choices -- unless it's for a feature film. Then all bets are off.

Kanye West broadcasted "New Slaves" all over the world on Friday, then performed it on "SNL" on Saturday.
When it comes to Kanye West, attention to detail is absolutely VITAL. Like, if you thought Kanye was serious about his giant coat collection, then you'd better believe that he's 10x as serious when it comes to music. (I mean, dude announced he and Kim Kardashian were having a baby on New Year's Eve! Dramatic entrances are clearly his forte.) Bearing that in mind, we really shouldn't have been surprised when Kanye projected his brand-new song/video, "New Slaves," from his forthcoming album, Yeezus, on 66 buildings across the world. Who thinks of this stuff?!
Watch Kanye West project "New Slaves" in New York, and watch him perform "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" on "SNL" after the jump.
Britney debuts "Ooh La La" from the "The Smurfs 2" soundtrack.
We already knew that Britney Spears was going to record her upcoming eighth album with will.i.am and was prepping to take over Las Vegas, but apparently Brit was hiding something CRUCIAL from us! And when we say "something crucial," we're obviously talking about Brit's brand-new jam, "Ooh La La," from the upcoming film "The Smurfs 2." Tailor-made for summer, "Ooh La La"'s got the perfect warm-weather elements: easy, breezy acoustic guitar, a simple-to-learn sing-along chorus, a major dance breakdown -- just what you need for those sunny days at the beach. Well, except for sunblock. We ALWAYS forget that!

Demi drew some VERY naughty pics on "Live From MTV."
We're sure you all you Lovatics remembered to watch, but just in case, we'll bring you up to speed: Yesterday Demi Lovato stopped by MTV for an exclusive "Live From MTV" interview where she chatted about everything from her new album, Demi, to working with Cher Lloyd and her friendship with Selena Gomez. Then things took a turn for the dirty once the interview hit a segment called "Demi Draws," where the "Heart Attack" singer was supposed to hand-draw a title from her new album (kinda like iPad Pictionary), and fans could guess the song's name based on her clues. Everything went according to plan at first -- Demi picked a folded-up piece of paper from a jar, started drawing.... and, wait, DEMI, WHAT DID YOU JUST DRAW?? THAT'S NOT WHAT A "NIGHTINGALE" LOOKS LIKE. (Unless the song "Nightingale" is just a phallic euphemism for...oh God... I think my innocence is ruined.)
