B.o.B’s ‘Strange Clouds’ Featuring Morgan Freeman?

The man who brought us “Airplanes,” “Nothin’ On You” and “Magic” with radio-friendly guests Haley Williams, Bruno Mars and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo is about to drop his second album, Strange Clouds.

Acclaimed rapper B.o.B’s latest, out May 1st, is chock-full of a-list appearances. Taylor Swift on “Both Of Us,” Chris Brown and T.I. on “Arena,” Nicki Minaj for “Out Of My Mind,” and Morgan Freeman on the intro track “Bombs Away?”

Don’t get too excited, Ellis Redding/God/Hoke Colburn probably won’t be rapping or singing. One can only assume it’s a narration type of situation. (I didn’t mean for that to rhyme)

Rihanna’s Official ‘Talk That Talk’ Tracklist

With a release date just days before Thanksgiving, Rihanna’s sixth studio album in a mere seven years, looks to exceed expectations. Her previous effort, Loud, may have earned lukewarm reactions from the critics, but the fans went for it whole-heartedly and so did the queen of Barbadian pop.

She made music videos for half the tracks on Loud, toured all over the U.S. plus overseas and hasn’t let up besides her recent bout with the flu. Her new song “We Found Love,” an electronically dumb yet blissful pairing with Calvin Harris, is the first look at Talk That Talk, due November 21st.

Florence + The Machine Sophomore Album Details

The highly anticipated second album from Florence Welch and her machine, Ceremonials, is due out on October 31 (Halloween!) in the UK.

From the song titles, stuff like “All This And Heaven Too,” the name of the LP seems to really fit. It seems very spiritual, but not preachy, I’d assume. The red-headed Bohemian fairy would never do that to me…

Random Muppets ‘Green Album’ At Starbucks

Standing in line today to finally fulfill my craving for a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks, I flip through the four albums eyeing me from the counter by the biscotti and gift cards, and what do I find?

An album full of Muppet cover songs. A strang grouping of artists – a Weezer and Haley Williams pairing? Alkaline Trio? Rachael Yamagata? Hmm I like all these things, on their own. BUT NOT ON A MUPPET COVER ALBUM!

Did Jwoww Get Botox Or What?

I keep watching season four of Jersey Shore and fearing the moments when I have to look at Jwoww’s stretched, unmoving face.

I went on Google image search on a desperate quest to find comparison photos and then sadly realized that she doesn’t actually look as different as I thought.

Can some expert surgeon examine Jwoww and tell me if she had work done? The gossiping, pop-culture-devouring monster inside of me really needs to know…
