Nicola Roberts: Beat Of My Drum (Single Review)

It's always the quiet ones that surprise you the most. On June 5, Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts steps out on her own with her debut solo single, "Beat Of My Drum." "Beat of My Drum" is, without question, the coolest post-Aloud effort to date: Produced by Diplo and French producer Dimitri Tikovoi,…


The Saturdays: Notorious (Video Premiere)

FINALLY! After teasing us for weeks, The Saturdays have just premiered the video for their brand new single, "Notorious"!

Aubrey O'Day: Automatic (Single Review)

A new O'Day has come! Ever since Diddy unceremoniously ditched the Danity Kane divas nearly three years ago (one of the world's greater pop injustices of all time), former member Aubrey O'Day has made it clear that she would not be deterred from her pop star dreams. O'Day, the group's most…


What's In A Name? The Brilliance of CocknBullKid

I'll admit it: I've been sleeping on CocknBullKid for a while now. Why? It's a shamefully silly reason, yet entirely real nonetheless: She has literally the worst stage name of all time. No, but seriously: It reads like one of those terrible hipster bands that mass CC's me along with every other…


MuuMuse Approved: Avril Lavigne - Wish You Were Here

STOP YOUR LIFE. After nearly a decade of anticipation, Avril Lavigne has finally recorded a song that is as good as "Complicated." There's always been a curious dichotomy in Avril's sound.

MuuMuse Approved: Neon Hitch - "Get Over U"

Well, here's a song that's good. Neon Hitch is the self-described gypsy type who's been all the rage over the interwebz as of late as one of pop's most intriguing up-and-coming chanteuses. (No, but really, she's got quite the colorful background--she used to be in the circus as both a trapeze…
