Madonna's 'Miles Away': 10 Years Later, And Still So Far Away

"You always have the biggest heart when we're six thousand miles apart..." Despite what whoever is running her Twitter account is doing with all these anniversary acknowledgements at the moment, Madonna, Queen of Pop™, isn't one who likes to look in her rearview mirror...unless involved in a car…


Hot Club Track Of The Week: Ian Carey and Rosette - Amnesia (feat. Timbaland and Brasco)

In the world of pop, "Amnesia" never fails: There's Britney's 2008 Circus bonus track "Amnesia" (perhaps better retitled as "Oops!...I Cheated Again"), Cheryl Cole's electro-tastic 2010 Messy Little Raindrops smash "Amnesia," and exactly who could possibly forget Cherish's final slow jam,…


A Series of Offensive Events: How Timbaland, David Guetta, Pitbull and Will.I.Am Joined Forces to Create The Year's Most Astounding Moment in Misogyny

Earlier this afternoon, I received a press release announcing the upcoming return of Timbaland: "Timbaland Debuts Single In Provacative Video for Raphael Mazzucco!" Tempted by both the question of what Timbaland would be working on in these post-RedOne dark days of radio, as well as what could…

Don't Hold Your Breath: The Nicole Scherzinger Single, The Keri Hilson Demo

It's been a hot minute since Scherzy Baby got some lovin' on the MuuMuse. According to various reports, the second single from Nicole Scherzinger's not-yet-shelved, as-of-yet-untitled debut solo album will be a song called "Don't Hold Your Breath." And now, a brief moment of silence to allow for…


Keri Hilson: No Boys Allowed (Album Review)

For an album called No Boys Allowed, there sure are a lot of boys that came to play inside Miss Keri Baby's clubhouse. Though she's tried at length to explain her new album's title--that No Boys Allowed a "no bitch ass-ness" kind of empowerment collection about ditching the little boys and…


Hey, You Know What Was An Amazing Song? LL Cool J's "Control Myself" (featuring Jennifer Lopez)

That's right. You heard me: "Control Myself" was a goddamn jam. Are you familiar? Yes/no? Let's discuss. Let me take you back a little--four years ago, to be exact. The year was 2006. It was a fine year: The Timbaland takeover was just at its glorious peak with Nelly Furtado's Loose and Justin…


Keri Hilson Premieres Lackluster New Single, "Breaking Point"

Let the record show: I love Keri Hilson. I think she has an excellent knack for songcraft, a lovely voice, and keen insight into the music industry. Well, not so much the latter right now. Hours ago, Hilson premiered "Breaking Point" on Atlanta radio station V-103, the debut Timbaland-produced…

So, this is something new and interesting. The night before my interview with Sky Ferreira, I received a vaguely mysterious e-mail from MuuMuse reader Sam Lansky with an attachment entitled "Fame Fatale." The e-mail suggested that the attached may assist me in preparing for my interview. As soon…


Interview with...Natalia Kills!

How can you become the best at anything? The way you do it is you just try to kill it every time. Natalia Kills is a very new kind of radio killer. Starting with the release of her murderously good buzz single at the end of 2009, "Zombie," the soon-to-be superstar began capturing new fans left…


Esmee Denters ft. Justin Timberlake: Love Dealer (Video Premiere)

Justin Timberlake is back on my radar (on my ray-duh). This time however, he's here to try and propel his latest protégé, YouTube sensation Esmée Denters, back into the spotlight once again. For those who might not remember, Timberlake first signed the Dutch singer onto his label, Tennman…
