Jessie J has been working hard in the studio on her upcoming album and just recently she previewed her new single “Wild“ on her YouTube channel.
Now, the British singer has released an acoustic version of the song, which we are really diggin’ right now!
In the video, the sultry songstress looks rocker-chic with a shaved head and decked out in gold jewelry.
Acoustically, this song comes off as a power ballad compared to the up-tempo track it’s intended to be. Either way, “Wild” is catching our attention … not to mention her voice is undeniably incredible!
Jessie’s new single also features rappers, Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal.

There are just two more days until the fourth season of Arrested Development streams in its entirety on Netflix.
And in anticipation of that, four new previews have been released.
The only downside about them is that they are too short!
In one, G.O.B. (Will Arnett) is driving a limo with a swarm of bees in the backseat … which then attack his father (Jeffrey Tambor) when he opens the door after thinking his son said he had beans.
In another, Maeby (Alia Shawkat) comes home to find an ostrich running around the Bluth residence.
The other two show “maritime”-approved waterproof security cameras being installed in their penthouse and Lindsay (Portia de Rossi) removing “material things” from her suitcase, like framed photos of her daughter.

It was a rough night for Amanda Bynes.
The actress was arrested on Thursday in New York City after police witnessed her throwing a bong out of her apartment window.
On Friday morning, the former What I Like About You actress was photographed entering a Manhattan courthouse wearing the same outfit and wig she had been in the night before.
According to reports, Amanda was arraigned and charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree, attempted tampering with physical evidence, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
Amanda was then released on her own recognizance, despite prosecution’s request to hold her on $1,000 bail. She left the courthouse in a taxi.
Police were first summoned to Amanda’s apartment after her doorman reported that she was smoking marijuana in the lobby. By the time law enforcement arrived, she had gone up to her home, but she let them in. According to reports, that’s when they pointed out the bong … and she threw it out the 36th floor window.
Amanda is due back in court on July 9.Published: 5/24/2013 13:31:30 PM

Mariah Carey was on Good Morning America on Friday to perform … but she almost surprised the crowd in a different way.
During an interview with Lara Spencer, the back of the singer’s pink sequined Donatella Versace dress just popped open.
Still, she was able to joke about it. “I love you Donatella, but it popped darling,” said Mariah.
As her team of stylists fixed the dress disaster, Lara and Mariah tried to distract the crowd. “How psyched are you guys to see Mariah — dress or no dress?” asked Lara.
“What should we call this? The Central Park Saga?” joked Mariah right back. “It seems like a YouTube moment.”
Eventually, the superstar just changed her dress completely and show went on … and Mariah was joined onstage by Miguel for their new hit, “#Beautiful.”Published: 5/24/2013 12:17:42 PM

The Hangover cast and crew got the first taste of the micro-brew at their after-party following the London premiere.

Amanda Bynes was arrested in New York City on Thursday night, according to multiple reports.
The former What I Like About You star was taken in custody after police witnessed her throwing drug paraphernalia out of her window, reports People magazine.

Has Taylor Swift turned in her Belieber fan club card?
After the hilarious GIF of Taylor disapproving of the on-again-off again Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez‘s kiss backstage at the Billboard Music Awards, the “22” singer has spoken out about her opinion of the relationship.
When Access Hollywood asked Taylor what she and her BFF Selena were whispering about in the crowd when Justin was onstage receiving his two awards that night, Swift quickly responded with, “Ohhh you do not want to know!” Then she added, “You do not want to open that can of worms. Especially tonight.”
Oh, snap! Sounds like things are much more complicated than we thought.
Even when asked in the press room of the awards show what she thought of Justin winning the Milestone Award, she completely avoided the topic and asked, “Can we have another question?”

Are you as excited as we are for the return of Arrested Development on Netflix this Sunday?
In preparation of catching up with the dysfunctional Bluth family, let’s take a look back at some of the comedy’s best running gags over its three seasons on the air.
Some of the most memorable include: G.O.B.’s (Will Arnett) failed “illusions,” his catchphrase “Come On,” Steve Holt, Buster’s (Tony Hale) hook-hand, Tobias’ (David Cross) sexual ambiguity, and the family’s favorite phrase, “I’ve made a huge mistake.”
The 15-episode stream of Arrested Development – which also stars Patrick Bateman, Michael Cera, and Portia de Rossi – begins on Netflix on Sunday, May 26, just one minute after midnight.
And if Netflix (and fans) had their way, there will be a fifth season. Content Chief Ted Sarandos tells The Hollywood Reporter: “We would love to do more, and we have a deal in place that says that there could be. The problem is logistics. They were all working full-time and doing this show in between, and they did it for the love of the show and for [creator] Mitch Hurwitz. If we can muster up that love again, we’d love to do it again.”Published: 5/23/2013 11:55:43 AM
After being eliminated from The Bachelor following the hometown visits during Sean Lowe‘s season, the 26-year-old reveals she was “emotional because I thought it was a mistake at the time, but of course that’s changed.”
So what has Des returning to the TV dating world?
“I wanted to come back because I know from first-hand experience the feelings are very real and you really can form a relationship from it … throughout this season you’ll see I really wanted to make sure I was going to be the right person for them, as well, because I was really aware of that. I made sure if I’m not going to be the right person for you, let me know. It’s always a two-way street.”
However, when it comes to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette it’s not always a fair street.
There are “double standards,” Desiree admitted. “I do think that being a girl you’re judged a little bit differently, but I don’t get it. I try to take each and every relationship completely separate so when you’re dating someone you have to kiss to see if there’s going to be a connection. That’s where it’s tricky.”
Naturally, Des will be kissing a lot of eligible men this season. Of her suitors, Ryan mentioned he’s rooting for Brooks, while Ellen is for Juan. But what about Zach who shows up shirtless in the first episode and asks, “Will you accept these abs?”
The reality star is keeping mum though, only divulging: “You’ll have to stay tuned. I feel like all these guys, they really surprised.”
And although she won’t rveal her feelings for any particular bachelor, she did admit she’s not in it for the fame.
“That is not my desire at all,” said Desiree. “It was a surprise for me to even be on TV, so I want nothing more to go back to my normal day to day life … I definitely don’t want to be an actress, not at all.”
Tune in to see Desiree’s fate play out on the premiere of The Bachelorette on ABC Monday, May 27 at 8/7c.Published: 5/23/2013 11:33:07 AM
The actor phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about his brand new flick, as well as his son and that comment he made in Men’s Fitness about body image.
Vin shares that the film franchise “has blossomed into something bigger than we even imagined in the beginning … If you think of Fast & Furious as two trilogies, this would be the conclusion of the second trilogy.”
And after leaving us in the last movie thinking that his love interest Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) was dead, Vin explains: “When we did Fast & Furious 4, it was a re-teaming of the band and getting everyone back … all the core cast. [Michelle] wanted to do the movie, but she didn’t want her character to die. So if you look at the fourth film … you’ll see that we told the story without confirming she was dead.”

So will we see another trilogy? “Thank god, Universal is making this saga with some long-lead sights where they’re planning what happens over multiple pictures, as opposed to what happened in the first trilogy where it was fragmented and the stories weren’t connected. The whole fun of this now is the studio has owned it like a saga.”
And aside from racing and working it out in the action-packed flick, the actor’s also taken up a hobby of singing — and his biggest fans are his kids. Vin says that his cover of Rihanna‘s “Stay,” which went viral earlier this year, is their “favorite song.”
And the touching version has even more of a special meaning now. “I had to take my 2-year-old son to the emergency room because was trying to jump and bit down [on] his tooth. We get to the hospital and he sits down on the bed and they’re tyring to hold him down to calm him and they can’t calm him and he asked me to play that video for him. I almost cried. My 2-year-old son at the moment he needed to feel the most calm … he asks me to play Daddy’s video for him.”
And of course we had to ask about the comment he made to Men’s Fitness about how Hollywood is harder on men than woman when it comes to their physique.

So what did the buff star mean? “It prompts an interesting topic,” he said. “I had never even thought about this, but are male actors supposed to do a certain something nowadays? Are they expected to be in incredible shape? Does the public want their male actor to be in the gym 24 hours a day or do whatever they have to do?”
Vin adds although he feels the pressure for certain characters, “I think there is a perception of what some of these action heroes are supposed to look.”
Still, he also appreciates being less in shape. ”But if I’m doing a different kind of movie, like a courtroom drama and look out-of-shape … that’s equally as fun for me.”

This slowed-down synth version of Backstreet Boys‘, “I Want It That Way,” is definitely a unique reinvention of the hit ’90s song.

“I hope you like it, ’cause I love it. I’m like obsessed with this now,” the young goth-pop singer explains. “I hope you recognize it,” she adds before the synth plays a few chords as she begins the ultra-recognizable verse in a haunting rendition of the pop song.

With a record label called Cash Money, it only makes sense they would sign an heiress.
Lil Wayne’s mentor Birdman broke the news on his Twitter page Wednesday, writing, “Welcome@ParisHilton to tha Family.RichgangRichgirl.”
Paris not only re-tweeted it, but she also replied, “Thanks BO$$! Happy to be apart of the family.”
The album, which is Paris’ first since her 2006 debut, will reportedly be produced by Afrojack and feature Lil Wayne and Flo Rida.
“It’s definitely music you’re going to be hearing in the clubs,” she said on the red carpet at the Grammys in February.
Strangely enough, Paris did have success with Paris. Her first single, “Stars Are Blind,” went all the way to No. 1 Billboard U.S. Hot Dance Club chart.

After all the excitement of the Jonas Brothers‘ tour in South America, Kevin and Danielle are back in New Jersey.
And it seems they’re looking to expand. In a preview clip for this Sunday’s episode of Married to Jonas, the couple (along with Kevin’s mother) go house hunting … but it’s not just the three of them.
When they arrive at the home, there’s a group of neighbors congregated in the street hoping for a glimpse of the famous couple.
And they don’t find any more privacy once they step inside: the family who live in the house and their friends are all there to watch Kevin and Danielle take a tour with the real estate agent.
“The house is a little crowded,” says Kevin, who is surrounded by a group of young fans as he explores the backyard.
In another preview, Kevin, Danielle, and her brother and sisters joke about the report that Joe had made a sex tape with his girlfriend.
“I guess what happens in South America doesn’t stay in South America,” says Kevin.

A 30 Seconds to Mars performance is never a dull moment.
The rock band fronted by Jared Leto put on quite a visual spectacle on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night … for not one, but two songs.
30STM started the show with “Up in the Air,” the single from their brand new album Love, Lust, Faith, and Dreams, and as Jared worked the stage, enormous brightly-colored balloons were bounced around between the outdoor stage and the audience.
There was also a group of backup singers wearing white suits (with their faces smeared with paint) and percussionists wearing face masks.
Things calmed down a bit for their second performance, their 2009 hit “Kings and Queens,” but 30STM still had the same intensity.Published: 5/22/2013 14:10:09 PM
The 34-year-old singer goes shirtless in the simplistic video as he covers himself in a paint-like substance against a white background to slowly reveal parts of himself … but he’s not alone as he starts to “paint” around him. He’s joined by another beautiful figure and the two definitely heat things up in the video.
Though Adam and his steamy partner are never fully revealed through the paint, there’s not too much leftover for our imagination in the end. But is the sexy paint-covered figure all in Adam’s imagination?Published: 5/22/2013 13:20:38 PM
When listing adjectives that describe superstar Alicia Keys, needy isn’t one of them.
In a new behind-the-scenes video, Alicia gives fans a glimpse into what life is like on her tour bus.
Unlike horror stories that are often told about a musician’s road trip, Alicia admitted that she enjoys her time on the tour bus. The 32-year-old singer said that the bus is a great place to go after the show to “relax, watch TV, and hang out.”
Wearing a beanie and a big pair of sunglasses, Alicia shows that glam is nowhere to be found on the road. She described the sleeping arrangements as “coffin-esque cots,” but did say that she enjoys the “rocking” feeling when sleeping on the bus.
Alicia also revealed that her 2-year-old son Egypt is accompanying her during the current stretch of the Set the World on Fire, tour. Alicia said that she is trying to figure out how to create a “peaceful environment,” for Egypt, as this is his first time on the tour bus.

It was one of the great digital debates … How do you pronounce GIF?
While some said it like “Gift” without the T on the end, others went with “JIF,” like the peanut butter brand.
Well, at the Webby Awards on Tuesday night, the creator of the GIF (which stands for Graphics Interchange Format), Steve Wilhite, set the record straight.
During his acceptance speech for winning the lifetime achievement award, “It’s pronounced JIF, not GIF,” flashed onscreen behind Wilhite. (There was a five-word limit to speech length.)
When the correct pronunciation was revealed, the audience could be heard cheering and laughing.
Wilhite debuted the GIF in June 1987 while working at CompuServe. In 2012, it became the “Word of the Year” by the Oxford American Dictionary.Published: 5/22/2013 12:27:24 PM
Alex Aiono is only 16, but he’s well on his way to stardom!
The talented singer is prepping the release of his EP, Young & Foolish … but he’s giving RyanSeacrest.com a first listen.
The six songs on the album include the title track (and first single), “Young & Foolish” — which was co-written with John Legend – as well as “Doesn’t Get Better,” “Love on Fire,” “Alphabet Soup,” “Time of Your Life,” and “Commit.”
And did we mention he plays five instruments? Alex is skilled at guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, and piano!
“Writing songs is such a private process,” Alex tells RyanSeacrest.com. “Usually, I’m somewhere with my guitar or working in a studio where it all happens in a pretty solitary way. What’s cool is how music comes even more alive when I share it with kids who are my age — online or live. One reason I love the song John Legend and I wrote together is because it just grabs the essence of where I’m at right now … and that’s why the EP is entitled Young and Foolish. I think you’ve gotta be a little foolish to put yourself out there like this and chase your dream!”Published: 5/22/2013 11:35:34 AM
The two friends revealed to On Air with Ryan Seacrest that they joined forces when Tyler just called up Oprah.
“I was on the phone with him one day and he said, ‘You know what? I can help you out … I can write something for you. Why don’t you let me write something for your network?’ And I was like, ‘You’re too busy because aren’t you going to have your own network?’ At the time, he was working on his own network and I never want to be the imposing friend. I said, ‘You know? I’ll be okay.’ And as time went on we realized that him coming to help me out on OWN and offer his talent to our network was really going to be the best for me and also for him. So that’s really how it happened.”
The scripted shows the two joined forces for are The Haves and the Have Nots and Love Thy Neighbor.
Justin Bartha Talks ‘The Hangover’ Wolfpack Friendship
Tyler describes The Haves and the Have Nots as “a nighttime soap drama that takes you back to Dallas and Knots Landing and those kind of shows that I grew up on and love so much … John Schneider is in it and a lot of new faces … I think the audience will love it because it’s one of those shows … that’s designed to take you on a roller coaster and never let you go until it’s time to get off.”
As for how Oprah and Tyler’s process is when it comes to giving notes, Oprah shared: ”I’ve called Tyler from the treadmill and been like, ‘Oh my goodness! What is going on in your brain?’”
“I watch episodes on the treadmill from my iPad … Tyler was sending me the episodes supposedly for me to critique. I only had a couple critiques … if you’re talking about the covering on the chair in the office then that’s not too bad.”
Even though she’s considered the Queen of Daytime TV, Oprah said, “You know, I don’t watch a lot of TV …this is the most TV I’ve watched since Mary Tyler Moore went off, except for Scandal … I was tweeting the week before literally, I realized, I’m holding my breath. I need to breathe!”
So have the BFFs gotten into any friendly tiffs over creative differences?
“I’m not the fighting kind,” Oprah admitted. “I call him Moses at times. [He's like,] ‘What does that really mean? I’m hearing a pause?’ I was like, ‘I’m just tryng to sip my tea, Tyler.’”
Tyler added: “The way we communicate as friends is we really respect each other, [so] there’s really none of that.”
Aside from working on their first scripted shows, Oprah’s also been busy Instagramming photos of her gorgeous and robust garden.
“That’s just my teeny-tiny garden,” she said. “I’m going into the garden business in Hawaii … I have an organic farm in Maui. The truth is I love gardening. It takes me back to my Mississippi roots, but at the time when I was growing up I didn’t want the garden. I wanted store-bought food. I was like, ‘Grandma, how come we can’t have the peas from the can?’ … But now, it’s a hobby that nourishes me in more ways than one and when you have so much, I’ve been giving it to neighbors, to restaurants. So eventually I’ll turn it into a business particularly in Maui.”
