Finally. Madonna’s Ghosttown video. As of this writing, I’ve only looked at it once so there may be notes to pick up later but you already know how I feel about the song – it’s one of the strongest, if not the strongest, on the album. A proper power ballad. And we haven’t had one from her in a while. Full Story

Here’s an early Wednesday bonus – new photos of Idris Elba. I need this. Because the week, it’s just draggggging. Idris was in London last night at the premiere screening and Q&A for his documentary Mandela, My Dad, and Me. During the session, he was asked about becoming Bond, all this talk that he might be the next 007. Full Story

Elysia just sent this over to me. Perfect way to end April Fool’s Day. But let’s get serious first, for real, no fooling. T-Pain is back. Without auto-tune. He tells Vulture that he struggled with depression for a while because of the criticism he received when the auto-tune movement began. Full Story

All this Zayn Malik One Direction drama is making me think a lot about Spice Girls and Take That. Oh look. Here are new pictures of Robbie Williams performing in Paris this week. As I wrote the other day, after Ritchie reminded me, Robbie's breakup from Take That was a major crisis moment for fans. Full Story

Well, Deadline has apologized by not apologizing, so it’s time to pretend that the NBC musical that was announced yesterday, The Wiz, isn’t totally a reactive, opportunistic move to make them look like they’re on the side of the good guys. Full Story

As Maria noted in her Tidal post, Taylor Swift was probably THE biggest name not present and accounted for at the Tidal kickoff yesterday. I say THE biggest name because, love her or hate her, you cannot deny Taylor’s chart influence, not only with the latest album 1989 but her previous ones too. Full Story

Yesterday was the launch of a new Jay Z-backed music streaming service, Tidal. It started with a social media takeover (which I’ll get to) and then a press conference. An awkward as hell press conference; I got the sweats watching it. Why was the crowd hollering, who did they invite to this thing? Was it fans, or media? The audible dip in applause between Kanye and Deadmau5 was painful. Full Story

One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson and producer Naughty Boy, who’s working with Zayn Malik on some new music, got into a fight on Twitter. Louis thought Naughty Boy (do we have to call him this???) was disrespecting the band and the fans and Naughty Boy (who can take this name seriously?) was like, nah, man, you’re wrong. Full Story

So there’s the Taylor Swift way of doing things, which is to sit in the audience the whole time because they pretty much told her she was going to win everything. With as many friends as possible. And then there’s the Rihanna way of doing things. Which is to not sit in the audience. And show up to perform. Full Story

This didn’t end up being a surprise since Michelle tweeted about it a couple of days before the event. But still. Still. When she, Kelly Rowland, and the Beyonce reunite? It’s still a big deal. The reunion happened Saturday night at the Stellar Gospel Music Awards in Las Vegas where Michelle was nominated in several categories. Full Story
