    If Taylor Swift’s method of dismissing an ex-boyfriend is, well, just too sweet for your taste—here’s a markedly harsher delivery of her smash hit kiss-off tune “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” No, we’re not talking about the Hanson version, for cripes’ sake! Django Unchained bad guy Samuel L. Jackson, who’s been known of late for his cinematically expletive takes on children’s books (Go The F--- To Sleep) and political ads (&ld...  | More »

    A$AP Rocky, the hip-hop young gun who grabbed Rihanna’s backside when joining her on stage at the Video Music Awards last September, transcends his Pretty Flacko persona on his highly-anticipated debut album, Long.Live.A$AP. While most rappers have used their trials to justify their gravitation to street life, on Long.Live.A$AP’s “Phoenix” the 24-year-old MC offers another perspective – depression.

But judging from a 45-minute "Idol" preview that screened in 11 locations across the nation on Wednesday, January 9--a full week before the Fox network's premiere--Season 12 may already have a breakout star: the one and only Her Minajesty, Nicki Minaj.   Nicki was in fa...  | More »

  • Video: Jerrod Niemann Performs for Yahoo!

    January 10, 2013 5:55 PM ET | Yahoo Our Country

    With his breakout No. 1 hit a couple of years back, Jerrod Niemann complained: "Lover, lover, you don't treat me no good no more." His brand new single, "Only God Could Love You More," is another break-up song… or another might-break-up song.
