What an exciting week in music! In the past week alone, all of our faves from Lana Del Rey to The Weeknd to Crystal Castles have released new material. Turn up your speakers and check it all out after the jump:
How lovely. The queen of synth, glitter, and vomit actually cleans up quite nicely. Ke$ha looks absolutely lovely in these simple, yet glamourous, pictures, taken by famed celebrity photographer Terry Richardson. It’s almost a right of passage for ‘riskay’ artists to be shot by Mr. Richardson, so this was all too good and just a long time coming. Full shoot after the jump:
The stars came out for the 2011 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena May 22, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Some wore pants, some wore suits, some wore dresses, but everyone looked amazing. Selena Gomez filled out her extremely sexy dress, which showed off her waist. Ke$ha got dolled up and looked extravagant. Nicki sported a baby blue studded halfway see-through body suit! Other stars on the white carpet included Nicole Kidman, Kelly Rowland, Taylor Swift, Trey Songz, and so many more! Check out all of the celebs after the click:
Till The World Ends (Remix) | Britney Spears ft Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha
Does this even need any explanation? Spears teamed up with Nicki Minaj and the song’s original writer, Ke$ha, for a hip hop-infused dance anthem that puts enough of a spin on the original version to make it worth a spin on its own. Minaj drops a set of rap lyrics in the opener, while Ke$ha gets in on the iconic chorus.

NEW: Ke$ha | We R Who We R
Ke$ha’s done it again! Glitter-infused Ke$ha sings on the anthemic ‘WE R Who We R,’ a new song she penned for her upcoming album ‘Cannibal,’ to be released Nov. 22, just 10 months after her debut effort ‘Animal.’
According to Entertainment Weekly, Kesha wrote the tune in reaction to the recent, gay youth suicides due to bullying. “I wanted to inspire people to be themselves,” she adds about the pride-fueled record, “It’s a celebration of any sort of quirks or eccentricities.”
NEW: Ke$ha | Take if Off (Official Video)
Definitely has to be one of Ke$ha’s best videos yet! She’s actually looking pretty clean and sexy this time around. Well… for most of the video at least! See what Ke$ha had to say about this video in a small interview with MTV News-
It’s my favorite video..I think, ever! That I’ve done. Because I get to get really dirty in glitter sand and we all get naked because we’re just like, ‘taking it all off’. But it’s also about taking off your inhibitions and just being raw and real. And then we start tearing each other apart into pieces, and we’re all made out of glittery magic dust. Star dust.
Couldn’t have said it better myself Ke$ha! Check out the video above.
