Chris Brown & Ariana Grande

You can call it unexpected, but we’re really not all that surprised. Chris Brown and Ariana Grande have a collaboration in the works, in fact a rumor started to swirl when a short snippet of a record titled “Blue Roses” hit the net, listing that Grande was featured on the song, but none of her vocals were included.

Now, to officially get fans of both stars talking, Brown has revealed a photo of the two rehearsing a dance number, which appears to be ballet influenced, for a music video? The video and film production company Riveting Entertainment that Breezy most often works with also shared the image, simply stating “coming soon!”

What do you think? Are you interested in a collaboration between Chris Brown and Ariana Grande??

Take a listen to the 11 second snippet below:

Rihanna-Paris-Fashion-Balmain

Rihanna the Fashion Killa should be the name that the singer goes by now because she always looks so flawless! Stepping right off of a page of your favorite magazine, she’s obviously not the same teen girl who came in the game all those years ago.

After wrapping up her late night romp around town with Drake during his show in Paris, the gorgeous singer put the paparazzi on 10 as she strutted her stuff for Paris Fashion Week. Draped in some of the most stylish numbers we’ve seen her in, RiRi looked as if she was fresh off the runway herself.

Stopping by the Balmain womens wear show on Thursday in an olive green leather dress and gold pointed toe heels, Rihanna met up with creative director of the line, Oliver Rousteing. Bowing at her feet upon her arrival, the two were captured in a photo.

Rihanna, who is the face of the spring/summer 2014 Balmain campaign, tweeted: “@olivier_rousteing my fashion soul mate!!!” Obviously just as smitten with the green-eyed beauty, Rousteing spoke very highly of the singer. Saying, “When the woman that inspires you wears your creations, your vision feels complete.”

Seen in a fur shawl, fedora and smoke grey ensemble shortly after, Rihanna popped up at the Lavin show to hang with creative director Alber Elbaz. Can we expect to see her on the fall campaign? Hmm…only time will tell!

It’s a whole new J-Hud. The singer/actress shows off a sexy new image to go along with her sexy new sound in the pages of V Magazine‘s Music Issue. The Oscar and Grammy winner rocks a BLK DNM leather jacket, suspenders, and wet hair in the edgy Terry Richardson shoot, styled by Mel Ottenberg.

In the magazine, the 32-year-old singer talks about her upcoming ’70s-inspired album, which features production from Pharrell Williams, Timbaland, and Babyface.

Tracks include the super-soul jam “It’s Your World” featuring R. Kelly and the empowerment anthem “Whatever Makes You Happy” with lyrics such as, “We don’t give a shit / We don’t EVEN give a shit.”

“Earlier in my career I was just a soloist singing other people’s songs,” said Hudson. “Now I really want to be an artist. I want to lift the people up, have fun, create a moment. I have my own visions that I want to bring to life. People think I sit in church all day or stay at home and stare at my Oscar. It’s like I’m a nun or the president or something. I realized that people don’t really know who I am. It just feels like it’s time to take the training wheels off, you know? Let them see me.”

In celebration of her 26th birthday, Rihanna and her besties Melissa Forde, Lele, and Jenn Rosales traveled to Aspen for a week of winter fun. The Barbados beauty rented out a lavish cabin in the woods with its own bowling alley, pool, and majestic mountain views.

While in Aspen, she partook in some winter activities including skiing and inner tubing. The birthday gal bundled up, but still looked chic in a purple fur-lined jacket and boots, as she slid down a snow-covered hill in an inner tube. She and her girlfriends shared some laughs and plenty of festive cocktails during their wintery vacay.

August-Alsina-Testimony

August Alsina is ready to confess and share his truth. The young star has shared the cover art for his anticipated debut album Testimony, due in stores April 15 via Island Def Jam.

The LP follows his 2013 EP ‘Downtown: Life Under the Gun,’ and multiple previous mixtapes, including ‘The Product’ and ‘The Product 2.’ The album is lead by the first single “Make It Home” featuring Jeezy, and his debut No. 1 hit “I Luv This Sh*t.”

“My soul lies within this shit! My story, my background, my culture, my heart & lifestyle lies within this shit,” said August. “My strong points and weaknesses, my highs & my downfalls, I give you my all.. I’m telling my deepest secrets, I hope you promise to keep it. 4•15•14 This one is for the REAL one’s ! The ones that’s stuck in the struggle #StrugLife |TESTIMONY||.”

The album’s release date is a dedication in memory of his older brothers birthday, who was shot and killed in New Orleans in 2010.

“I struggle with how much of myself to give to the people,” Alsina said previously. “How much I want my personal business to be judged. I think the EP struck a good balance of who I am and what I’ve been through, but that was just the beginning. Nothing is held back on Testimony. When people hear my story, and see that I came from nothing, they’ll see that it’s possible for them too.”

Rihanna-Covers-Vogue-2014-6

Oh, Robyn, Robyn, Robyn!

If there’s one thing we know about Rihanna, it’s that this girl can work a camera! Always looking as if she’s fresh off the runway, the beautiful singer has done it again with her new Vogue cover spread! Marking her fourth time covering the magazine in the past four years, there’s nothing that anyone can say to negate her work ethic.

While the cover leaked a few weeks ago, the official shots from her spread and interview have now officially become available for fans to read. Featured in the March 2014 issue, the “Umbrella” singer is snapped wearing some pretty high-fashion ensembles and her infamous short cut. Opting to trade in her black hair for an interesting white cut in some shots, Rihanna still looks flawless. When asked how she feels about other singers being better than her, she responded:

“It’s not all down to my voice. There’s people with way more talent than I when it comes to singing. Bigger voices. But people want to know who you are. Fashion is a clear indication, a way to express your attitude, your mood.”

During the interview, she talks about her big move to New York, not wanting to be famous, her fashion sense and much more.
