OMG! Will.I.Am needs to leave Kylie Minogue alone!

Will.I.Am and Kylie Minogue

Oh hell to the no! The very last thing we need in 2014 is Will.I.Am working with Kylie Minogue. I know Kylie is working on some new music (for Jay Z's label Roc Nation) but I sincerely hope and pray that Will.I.Am isn't involved at all, that would be a complete disaster, just listen to Britney Spears' new album Britney Jean that he was an executive producer on. The two appeared together on BBC's The One Show recently, this seriously better be the MORE

Britney Spears unveils her ‘Britney Jean’ album cover

Britney Spears

Happy Friday y'all! Here's a special treat to take us into the much-needed weekend ... Britney Spears unveiled the (stripped down) cover art of her upcoming eighth studio album, Britney Jean! The simplicity of it is sheer perfection, she looks incredible plus I love the neon sign used for the title, '80s styling seems to be all the rage right now. The highly-anticipated album is scheduled to drop on December 3rd and includes songs she worked on MORE

Listen: Britney Spears’ “Work Bitch”

Britney Spears "Work Bitch" UPDATE: The official high-quality version of "Work Bitch" is now available below! The brand-new Britney Spears single, "Work Bitch," has leaked one day ahead of its official release! The heavy dance track / total club banger is the super hot lead single off her upcoming eighth studio album due out in December! It was co-written by Britney and Will.I.Am, along with Anthony MORE

(All Eyes On) Britney Spears: Countdown to Album #8?

Britney Spears "All Eyes On Me"

It is a dark time for the Kingdom of Pop. Lady Gaga's “Applause” has all but officially flopped, Katy Perry's “Roar” remains as successful and reductive as ever, and an era of overall basic bitchiness threatens to take hold of the land. In these trying times, however, there is hope – hope that you can find on Britney Spears' official website. On Tuesday morning, the Holy Spearit herself brought to our attention a timer counting MORE

Will.I.Am is NOT suing Pharrell


Yesterday, reports ciruclated that Will.I.Am was suing Pharrell because the latter was trying to "i am OTHER" brand. Turns out, William allegedly owns the copyright on the phrase "I AM" because that's totally the kind of thing a douchey, opportunistic marketing whore would do. Somewhere out there, Kim Kardashian threw a vase across the room while screaming "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?!" Anyway, Will.I.Am is setting the record straight by telling MORE

Will.I.Am basically admitted to plagiarism


Remember how trance artists Arty and Matt Zo pointed out how Will.I.Am ripped off their song for the sake of creating a crappy new collaboration with Chris Brown? Well, turns out Will.I.Am actually did kinda sorta take it without clearing rights or asking for permission. Whoops. Rolling Stone reports ... "Arty is a dope producer so I wrote this song to "Rebound" this last year," said on KISS-FM, USA Today reports. He continued, "I MORE

Will.I.Am and Justin Bieber’s “#thatPOWER” video

Will.I.Am and Justin Bieber "#thatPOWER"

Yesterday, my boyfriend decided to drag me out to Mississauga. No, I'm not sure why either. Anyway, while we were out, the radio station we were listening to decided to play Will.I.Am and Justin Bieber's new song, "#thatPOWER." (The stylization of that literally hurts me). All I could think of while listening to it was that if the DJ wanted to tell me to go f**k myself, he could have just told me instead of making me listen to some crap song. MORE

Will.I.Am allegedly ripped off an entire song!


Somewhere down the line, Will.I.Am went from being a socially conscious rapper to being the bargain bin of fading social trends clumsily repackaged for the absolute dumbest members of society. So of course, now William (THAT IS HIS NAME. YOU DO NOT GET TO THROW RANDOM PUNCTUATION INTO YOUR NAME JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN) is being accused of ripping off a song by Mat Zo and Arty for his new collaboration with Chris Brown, and you know something is MORE

Did Britney Spears really sing on “Scream & Shout”?


When I first heard "Scream & Shout," two things went through my head: First, when did Britney Spears scrape out her vocal chords and replace them with an iPhone? And second, the world needs a new Will.I.Am song the way it needs drug-resistant gonorrhoea. But seriously, how someone can book Britney to guest on a song, and find a way to completely remove any trace of Britney-ness from her vocals is beyond me, but William found a way. (I refuse MORE

Will.I.Am and Britney Spears: Scream & Shout

Will.I.Am and Britney Spears

I'm going to level with you here: Last night, my cold upgraded to a full-blown fever, and I spent the night in a Nyquil-induced fever dream. And then I wake up to Will.I.Am's new music video for "Scream & Shout," and honestly can't tell the difference between this and the blazing, illness-related insanity I suffered from last night. Also, does anyone else think that Britney Spears is virtually unrecognizable here? Not just in her appearance, MORE

Britney Spears and Will.I.Am: “Scream & Shout”

Will.I.Am and Britney Spears "Scream & Shout"

It's Britney Spears, bitch! I am loving "Scream & Shout," a brand-new track from Will.I.Am featuring Britney! It was produced by Lazy Jay who was featured on Azealia Banks' incredibly amazing single "212." I'll be completely honest, I am a bit over Will.I.Am (and Black Eyed Peas, let's pray they never come back) but there's no denying this is a totally hot track and will be on his upcoming solo release. Plus who doesn't love a reminder of MORE

Justin Bieber is enabling

We here at Popbytes have made our position on perfectly clear: the bitch needs to stop popping up on every track so that he can auto-tune it into a eurotrash mess that is completely indistinguishable from the sound of someone taking a massive dump on everything you love (e.g., puppies). But he's not stopping yet, because now he's about to produce a few tracks for Justin Bieber's new album. "There has been talk for him to do some MORE

Please stop featuring Will.I.Am!

Natalia Kills - Free

Back in April I posted about up and coming British pop sensation Natalia Kills, and here she is again with her brand new music video for Free (off her debut album Perfectionist) but for some reason, Will.I.Am is now featured on the track! I get that record labels are trying to add some 'street cred' (like he really has any) or try to garner radio play with his name on the track but in the end, it's totally unnecessary, plus he doesn't really add MORE is a great musician!


Despite the fact that writes songs in the same way a wrecking ball builds homes, people not only continue to listen to his music, but apparently, he can't even remember the goddamn lyrics. Seriously. In all fairness, it's incredibly difficult to remember "rock your body, rock your body, rock your body". The Black Eyed Peas ringleader recently performed live on French TV show Taratata and the rapper resorted to using his cellphone to MORE
