Nicki Minaj narrowly missed flashing a nipple whilst performing at the MTV Video Music Awards last night (24th August).

Jessie J Is Upping Sticks To L.A Because She's Underappreciated In The U.K


Jessie J

Jessie J can’t stand the constant exploration of her private life, questions about her sexuality and not being taken seriously as a singer in the U.K. So she’s decided to leave London for L.A, somehow arriving at the assumption that none of those things will happen there...

Jessie JJessie J

"In America they see me as a singer whereas here I feel that people don't appreciate my voice. I've dedicated my life to singing and I want it to be taken seriously,” she explained in a recent interview with The Mail on Sunday. "Here it seems that all people want to know is what I've had for breakfast and who I'm sleeping with."

The MTV Video Music Awards Line-Up Has Been Announced

The line-up for MTV's VMAs has been announced, and now it's time to take bets as to whether this year will serve as any less controversial than last year, following the infamous 'Miley-gate' incident. The performing artists include Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande Usher, 5 Seconds of Summer, Maroon 5, Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith.

Last year's MTV Video Music Awards sparked off some controversy due to Miley Cyrus' 'seductive' twerking on the then married Robin Thicke while wearing only her underwear and making provocative gestures with a giant foam finger. Then again, controversy is big money these days so if anything, the draw of this year's VMAs is seeing if they will top last year's antics.

Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj And Jessie J To Open VMAs


Ariana Grande Nicki Minaj Jessie J

Ariana Grande, the pop sensation of 2014, will be joined onstage by both Nicki Minaj and Jessie J on Sunday night at the VMAs. The British pop star will help Minaj and Grande perform their collaboration single ‘Bang Bang’ live for the first time.

2014 has been quite a year for Ariana Grande, and now she's set to open the VMAs

The trio will open the Video Music Awards on Sunday night (24th August). It’s been quite a year for Ariana Grande – performing for the President and the First Lady, being awarded Breakthrough Artist of the Year by the Music Business Association, her single with Iggy Azalea ‘Problem’ reaching Number 1 throughout the world – and this performance will underline her star status one more time.

After 'Bang Bang,' What Are Some Of The Best Triple Threat Pop Songs?


Jessie J Nicki Minaj Ariana Grande Timbaland Justin Timberlake

The only thing better than one pop star on a song is three, right? How about a combination of Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj - ALL on one track? It's what we got with the newly released 'Bang Bang' single, and it's proving that songs like these need to be happen more often.

Bang Bang Group'Bang Bang' was released on July 29

Released this week, the single featuring Jessie, Nicki, and Ari is an easy frontrunner for "Song of the Summer," and hell, maybe even pop song of the year. It'll be included on Jessie J's upcoming album this fall, as well as in the deluxe edition of Grande's new record, My Everything, so 'Bang Bang' isn't going away anytime soon. But what makes it so great? A mix of all the unique qualities in the girls - Jessie's explosive vocals, Grande's sassy croon, and Minaj's signature fierce rap verse makes for a track that only gets better with every listen. Coupled with the glossy production of mastermind producer Max Martin, 'Bang Bang' simply can't not be a hit. It's even being touted as 'Lady Marmalade 2.0' - the juggernaut number one smash in 2004 that featured Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink. Arguably, 'Bang Bang' outshines that track in every way possible, and having three vs. four is just easier to listen to. With that said, which songs are the best triple threats in pop music over the past couple of years?

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, And Nicki Minaj Link Up For 'Bang Bang' Single


Jessie J Ariana Grande Nicki Minaj

What happens when three of the biggest names in pop music all have albums coming out soon? You put them together to make a collaborative single, of course. Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, and Ariana Grande linked up to create their brand new single, 'Bang Bang,' and it sounds better than you'd ever expect.

Jessie J Performing'Bang Bang' will be included on Jessie J's upcoming album

'Bang Bang' is proof that just because it's almost August doesn't mean the title for "Song of the Summer" still isn't up for grabs. Produced by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, and Ilya Salmanzadeh - the crew behind Ariana Grande's 'Problem' - the track is an absolute smash that shows the best qualities of Jessie J, Grande, and Minaj. The song is going to serve as an album track off Jessie J's upcoming album set for release later this fall. After the disappointing sales numbers for her last record, Alive, Jessie J was in the studio hard at work earlier this year for album number three. Alive never even saw a U.S. release, so the fact that this may be her record's lead single could bode well for the record's chart potential in the future.

Jessie J's New Single "Bang Bang" Is A Summer Playlist Staple


Jessie J Ariana Grande Nicki Minaj

Ariana Grande is checking off rap babes to collaborate with one by one. Grande is on Jessie J’s new single Bang Bang, along with Nicki Minaj. The single premiered on Monday, a day before it became available for purchase. The catchy summer tune is part of Jessie’s upcoming album – yet to receive a cover and a name – and will also be featured as a bonus track on the deluxe editions of Ariana's own upcoming record My Everything. So get ready to hear this song everywhere this summer. Not that anyone minds, of course.

Pop's new dream team?

Teasing the new album, Grande posted a short snippet on Instagram yesterday. For her own teaser, Nicki Minaj took a slightly different route. The rap queen posted a caricature of the three divas in leather gear, brandishing guns like a trio of kick-ass futuristic space warriors… or something. It looked cool, anyway.

Jessie J Prepares 3rd Album; No 'Alive' U.S. Release In Sight


Jessie J Jason Derulo

When Jessie J’s Instagram and Twitter posts began donning a “#jessiejalbum3” hashtag, it rightfully brought excitement to her fanbase -- but maybe a little confusion, too, at least for the fans over in the United States. Back in January 2014, Jessie J pulled out of a tour with Robin Thicke in order to complete a version of Alive with new tracks made specifically for an American market. However, it’s now nearly mid-way through the year, and any information regarding new music at all has just referred to an Alive follow-up.

Originally released in the UK in September 2013, Alive debuted at #3 on the UK album charts, but ultimately was a disappointment commercially, and that’s something Jessie J even admits herself.

Jessie J No Longer Bisexual, But Is Sexuality So Easily Switched?


Jessie J Amber Heard

We’ve got to admit, when young female celebrities admit that they are bisexual, we immediately raise an eyebrow. Sexuality is, of course, each individual’s prerogative, it makes no difference to anybody’s ability to do their job, live their life, treat other people respectfully and so on. As a concept invented roughly 2000 years ago, sexuality should be recognised for what it truly is - a dated idea that should hold no influence in modern society.

Jessie J bisexual Jessie J is no longer bisexual, wants a husband

Over the past few years admitting to being bisexual has become the sort of ‘in-thing’ in the celebrity world. Female celebrities may feel it makes them sound more alluring, more mysterious to have an ambiguous sexual preference. Perhaps they believe that if the public assumes that they do the nasty with both men and women it gives them an extra edge, makes them sound more dangerous, more desirable. Of course, they may truly swing both wells, in which case, fantastic, carry on the swinging.  From Megan Fox to Johnny Depp’s fiancé Amber Heard, it seems there’s rarely a heterosexual star to be found.

BBC Unveil The 'Sounds Of 2014' Longlist


George Ezra Sam Smith Haim Adele Jessie J FKA Twigs

It's that time of year again, time for the BBC to poll who it thinks we will all be listening to this time next year. You might be familiar with some of the names, others you might not be so knowledgable about, but they are all names that the broadcasting house has earmarked for success over the next twelve months.

Sam Smith
Sam Smith is one of the favourites for the contest

In the past, victors have included Adele, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J and last year's winners, Haim, and once again the list is predominantly pop-based, but there are some notable exceptions. Soloists such as Ella Eyre and Sam Smith appear on the list, having already found notable fame for their guest appearances on other artists' tracks. 21-year-old Smith appeared on Naughty Boy's chart-topper 'La La La' and Disclosure's 'Latch,' whilst Eyre found success as a featured vocalist on Rudimental's hit 'Waiting All Night.'

First Concert From Jessie J's Mini-Arena Tour Goes Nearly Without A Hitch


Jessie J

Jessie J has been having an unpleasant couple of years – a postponed tour and losing her position on the X Factor judging panel (due to excessive theatrics, if the rumors are true) added to the poor sales of her second album Alive (chart entry #3), mean that the once A List pop star is quickly losing ground. There were still the O2 Arena gigs to look forward to, however and judging Jessie on her performing skill seems fairer than, say on the arbitrary measure of her reality show engagement.

Jessie J, iTunes Festival
It hasn't been an easy two years for the musician, who seems to be slipping from the American market.

Despite an initial glitch, which started off the show with an unlit stage, the stage design and production were certainly a thing to behold, according to the Financial Times. The lighting, particularly during the emotional “Who You Are” was also top notch.

Kylie Minogue is making sure that her new big red judges chair on BBC's The Voice moulds to fit her petite posterior ahead of the talent show's series three kick-off in January.

Lady Gaga Promises "One Hour Of All New Music" At ITunes Festival


Lady GaGa Queens Of The Stone Age Jessie J Sigur Ros Elton John Justin Timberlake

Lady GaGa has left the irritation of Monday's 'Applause' new single leakage behind her and has turned her attention to September, tweeting her excitement for next month's iTunes Festival. The singer announced that she's be gracing Camden's Roundhouse on the 1st September - the first night of the month of free concerts - with the Tweet: "I'M HEADLINING ITUNES FESTIVAL ON SEPT 1 AT ROUNDHOUSE IN LONDON. ONE HOUR OF ALL NEW MUSIC. #UKMonstersGetReady" to make sure all her UK fans knew what awaited them.

The NY singer called a "911 pop emergency" on Monday after a snippet from the lead single from her upcoming album, Artpop, leaked on the internet. "Little Monsters" rushed to their idol's aide by reporting illegal uploads to record company UMG but the hot new track spread like wildfire across the internet. Gaga made the radical decision to change the single's release date to the 12th Aug, dropping the new track immediately on American radio stations to combat the pirates.

Cheryl Cole Slammed With Rejection From 'The Voice' Judge Job


Cheryl Cole Simon Cowell Will.i.am Jessie J Danny O'Donoghue

Perhaps Cheryl Cole's future doesn't lie in talent contest judging. After being sacked by The X Factor for having an unintelligible accent, she's been told she won't be making the move to the BBC's The Voice singing show.

Cole's Time As A Talent Judge May Be Over.

Cole, 30, has allegedly been rejected from the The Voice judge job despite Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue's exits meaning there are two big red chairs going cold. The Sun reports that Cheryl's snub comes as a result of her being still too closely linked with The X Factor, with a source saying "Even though Cheryl is a massive name, she's still too closely identified with The X Factor. Producers want to bring on stars who don't have that kind of previous relationship."

As well as Dunn, the party-going cast is made of many of Jessie's close friends, including the songwriter Daley.

The only thing worse than Jessie J’s attention seeking antics on BBC’s flailing talent show franchise, The Voice, is Danny O’Donoghue’s incessant showing off. So 'O’Donoghue quits The Voice' will have come as a welcome headline, and builds upon the positive news that Jessie-J stepped down, too.

The other two, Will.i.am and Tom Jones aren’t bad; the legendary Welsh singer must be wondering exactly what he’s doing, but when he checks his bank statement, he’ll soon remember.

Why Jessie J Leaving 'The Voice' Is Bad News For The Beeb


Jessie J Danny O'Donoghue Tom Jones Will.i.am

Jessie J is to leave her role as coach on BBC1's reality singing contest The Voice, blaming overseas touring and promotional commitments for her new record. In fairness, the BBC was lucky to hang on to the pop-star for its second season after she delayed committing to the show following Leanne Mitchell's surprising win.

The corporation - which has already announced a third season of the show - said it was "so sorry" to see her go. You bet they were. Though Jessie J is often considered a polarising figure in music circles - perhaps for her wacky idiosyncrasies and the fact she tells contestants how it is to be a woman in the music industry ever week - she is absolutely key to The Voice's target audiences. She came to prominence with her debut single 'Do It Like a Dude' though it was the smash-hit 'Price Tag' that catapulted her to global fame - the catchy track topping the charts in nineteen countries including the United Kingdom, New Zealand and France. Her debut album Who You Are sold 2.5 copies and fifth single Domino broke into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US - no mean feat for a British pop artist.

The Voice Winner Andrea Begley Lobbies For Disabled Peoples' Experience At Gigs


Will.i.am Jessie J Laura Marling Adele Newton Faulkner Ed Sheeran

The partially sighted winner of 2013's singing talent show The Voice, Andrea Begley, has voiced her concerns over disabled fans' experience at gigs. "I have had some frustrating experiences at gigs and festivals," confessed Begley, who apparently celebrated her victory by going to a Laura Marling gig. "Sometimes access can be poor because of lots of steps and poor lighting. But often the problem can lie with a lack of knowledge on the part of staff. I think it is essential for venues to train all their staff in disability awareness so as they are able to deal sensitively with disabled customers."

Andrea Begley
Andrea Begley, Winner Of The Voice 2013.

Hailing from County Tyrone, the singer lost 90% of her vision after a degenerative childhood disease, yet plays guitar and piano and hopes to someday collaborate with the likes of Adele, Newton Faulkner and Ed Sheeran. The 27 year-old from Northern Ireland beat favourite Leah McFall to sign a £100,000 recording contract. McFall was being coached by The Voice judge and former Black Eyed Peas', Will.i.am, who seemed set on knocking the wind out of the ecstatic winner's sails with an odd, unsportsmanly tweet: "You should feel the audiences vibration in the room tonight after the public's vote... its unexplainable... so sad... perplexed." According to Yahoo!'s omg!, Begley was personally congratulated by the American singer and producer after the gig, saying she has "no hard feelings."

Vampire Weekend and Kings Of Leon will join a rapidly growing list, already peppered with fellow rock royalty, including Queens Of The Stone Age, Sigur Rós, 30 Seconds to Mars and Primal Scream.

It won't be solely a festival of rock though - artists from other genres have also been invited, giving everyone at this September's festival something to look forward to, such as Justin Timberlake, Jessie J, Jake Bugg, Rizzle Kicks, and classical composer Ludovico Einaudi.

Having being held since 2007, the annual iTunes festival is held over every night in September and this year will host over 60 acts at the Camden venue.

Jessie J Responds To Criticisms Of Her Appearance On The Voice


Jessie J

Jessie J’s debut on the first season of The Voice might have been a right laugh for some, but the singer is still struggling to win over a few viewers and critics in season two.

We’re not quite sure what the singer did wrong during last Saturday’s season premiere. She did a pretty good job of filling the role of the quirky, overly emotional panellist, if you ask us. Of course, you probably weren’t, so here are some critics, commenting on Jessie’s judging prowess instead: The Mirror's Ian Hyland wrote: “I was beginning to wish Jessie had decided on a sponsored silence for Comic Relief rather than shaving her head.” Another criticism went: “But what really kills the mood is the malign presence of Jessie J, who still mistakes being charmless, rude, egotistical and unpleasant for being 'real'.”

Ouch. Perhaps that’s a bit too harsh for someone, who’s just putting in a tad more feeling into the job than we’re used to? But we assume what hurt the most was probably the number of viewers, expressing their distaste for the singer’s antics. It’s no wonder then, that a rather affected Jessie took to Twitter to vent: “And we hung out when? An edited version is never the full story. You wouldn't write a review on a book after reading 3 pages would you?” She added: “When you go to b***** about someone you have never met.... Think.... for a second before you do... 'Oh yeah I have NEVER met them'.”

Various Artists - 'Dermot O'Leary Presents The Saturday Sessions 2013' Album Review


Dermot O'Leary's Saturday Sessions Allbum Review

Using a tried-and-tested formula of acoustic versions and covers, this most recent instalment of the series sees further performances for Dermot O'Leary's radio show now available to own.  The artists included cover a broad spectrum, from near-unknowns to arena fillers, and predictably results vary from the terrific to the terrible.

A brave and successful take on 'Eleanor Rigby' from Emeli Sande begins proceedings, while Will Young reminds us of his vocal talent on a lovely rendition of Blondie's 'Hanging On The Telephone'.  The classic Jackson 5 number 'I Want You Back' loses its magic in the hands (or should that be voice?) of Rachel Sermanni, but the running is immediately rescued by The Do taking on Kings Of Leon's 'Sex On Fire'.  They morph the rock anthem into a chill-out moment and in vocalist Olivia Merilahti have a fantastic talent.  Of those presenting their own material, Florence + The Machine and Jessie J give solid presentations of 'Never Let Me Go' and 'Price Tag' respectively, while Robbie Williams' altered performance of 'Candy' does well to take it away from sounding like an advertising jingle and make it a folk-style sing-a-long.

An ill-advised attempt at Blur's 'Song 2' from Plan B begins the second disc in horrendous manner, something that becomes all the more surprising once you hear the beautifully soulful version of 'Empire State Of Mind' gifted by Maverick Sabre.  Miles Kane gives a decent rendition of The 'Stones 'Play With Fire' before Dry The River provide a highlight of this release with a lovely cover of 'Homeward Bound', originally by Simon & Garfunkel.  A trio of British bands close out this record and, for an act with such a fierce live reputation, Kasabian's 'Days Are Forgotten' is limp to say the least.  By contrast, the Manic Street Preachers bring a raucous 'Your Love Alone Is Not Enough' and Athlete provide a stirring 'Wires' - a worthy selection as the latter book-end.

The One Direction boys seemed in pretty high spirits at the BRIT Awards in London last night. There was Harry, dancing around the stage like a lunatic, Louis helping himself to the complimentary fizz, Zayn looking all mysterious and broody, and the little Irish fella was presumably just happy to be there. But what about Liam? Something appeared to have riled our Liam, and we may have found the answer. Ready for this? Deep breath.

80's pop star Boy George - who debuted a slimmer, altogether healthier look this week - was at the bash with his young niece, getting snaps with her favourite pop stars. Now, there appears to have been some confusion when the One Direction boys came there way. Later on Twitter, the Karma Chameleon hit-maker wrote, "Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and B*llox's to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!" adding, "Stars of the night, Harry Styles, Lana Del Rey, Jessie J.

It might be the Brit Awards 2013 tonight, but as far as the press were concerned, it was a star from the US who captivated them as the stars arrived for the UK's musical industry awards showcase this evening in London (February 20, 2013). Much has been made of Taylor Swift and Harry Styles both being at the event tonight, and it's believed that they're to keep kept apart; that's just as well because if he gets a sight of Taylor tonight we reckon he'll be itching to get back together with her.

The Voice UK Back With A New Format; Will It Work?


Jessie J Will.i.am Tom Jones Danny O'Donoghue

The Voice didn’t exactly have the huge success in the UK that its format has been enjoying in the USA, where it’s emerged as a considerable rival to both American Idol and The X Factor in the reality singing stakes. We can’t even remember the name of last year’s winner, and with good reason, given that their winning single didn’t even make the UK top 40 singles charts. Meanwhile, the proposed finalists live tour – a staple for the likes of the X Factor after their series has finished – never materialised after a slow take-up in tickets meant they had to cancel all the dates. Embarrassing.

However, rather than retreating, the BBC has had a tweak of the format and announced that the show will be returning for a second series. The show’s highest ratings came during the ‘blind’ auditions, with judges picking singers for their teams based only on hearing them. To maintain interest in the live shows, the BBC have announced that judges (called coaches, remember) will be allowed to ‘steal’ a losing member of others’ teams if they think they still see something in them. Additionally, each coach is going to have 12 contestants in their team. Two more than last year. All four of last year's coaches, Will.i.am, Jessie J, Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue will return.

So will it make a difference? We’re not too convinced, but executive Producer Moira Ross is. According to The Independent she said: “We can’t wait for The Voice UK to return to Saturday nights. With our four global superstars back on board, an unrivalled standard of vocal talent and the added excitement of the “Steals” and “Knockouts”, it’s set to be an extraordinary series.”

Jessie J, Will.i.iam And Co. To Return To The Voice Next Season


Jessie J Will.i.am Tom Jones

The next season of The Voice will see all of the players from the last - thats Tom Jones, Jessie J, Will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue from the Script - return to their posts on the show for another run, a new trailer by the BBC reveals.

In the trailer, which aired on the BBC earlier today, all four of the judges appear together in a sneak peak of things to come in the new year. The trailer, imaginatively called 'Love 2013,' also treats fans of Doctor Who and Miranda by showing sneak peaks at those shows too, promising a rather compulsive viewing period for license payers next year.

The Voice is expected to return to screens in the spring, with the show's producers hoping it can reach the standard set by fellow BBC compatriot Strictly Come Dancing, rather than it's musical talent show rival The X Factor, which suffered a massive ratings drop during its last season, whilst Strictly's viewer figures went up.

No Surprises: The Voice Judges Confirmed For Series Two


Jessie J Tom Jones The Script Will.i.am Danny O'Donoghue

The four judges from The Voice will be returning for the second series, which means fans of the show will once again be treated to Will.i.am saying "dope" a lot, Danny O'Donoghue talking drivel, Jessie J telling people she knows what it's like to be a female in the record business and Tom Jones generally looking bemused.

The BBC were probably most keen to sign Jessie J on for the second series, and the 'Do It Like a Dude' singer initially said she wouldn't be returning to the show. There were also rumours that Sir Tom might quit the show, while O'Donoghue is presumably just happy to be there. Audience figures for the first series began strongly, beating ITV's behemoth X Factor before dropping off monumentally. Leanne Mitchell won the first series. That's Leanne Mitchell. Anyone?
