Ariana Grande teases she may release some of her more “experimental and weird” music.
The Baby I pop star is working on the follow-up album to her chart-topping September debut, Yours Truly, but there are several songs she recorded with The Way collaborator, rapper Mac Miller, that have still yet to hit airwaves.
Speaking to MTV News, Ariana said while she has no plans to feature their older work on her February release, she may talk to the 21-year-old lyricist about sharing their tracks online – and fans might be surprised by what they hear.
“…The kind of music that Mac and I make is kind of experimental and weird and, like, it’s super cool,” she said.
“I would love to put it out somewhere, maybe I’ll talk to him. We’ll put it online or something for download or something.”
Ariana, 20, said she remains good friends with the Pittsburgh-born rapper and sang his praises. She said the vibe is relaxed when they’re in the recording studio which encourages creative expression.
“The fun thing about my friendship with Malcolm is that when I go over and hang out with him, I get to make music with him that I wouldn’t necessarily make for my album. We get to experiment and do cool, weird things,” she explained.
“I get to sing different ways and add tons and tons and tons of vocals and harmonies and just make cool music. He’s such a great guy.”
MTV reports Ariana is soon expected to release her next single, Right There featuring Big Sean, in the UK.
Demi Lovato hates secrets as they make people ‘sick’.
The 21-year-old says honesty is essential to a healthy life and she tries to live by that rule as much as possible.
‘You’ve gotta be honest with people around you. And honest with yourself,’ Demi told Teen Vogue. ‘When you’re having a rough day, be like, ‘I don’t want to talk about this, but I need to get it off my chest.’ If you have a secret – secrets make you sick.’ Demi learned the importance of honesty after a 2010 stint in rehab. The US X Factor judge realised who her real friends were when she checked out and found just four texts waiting on her phone ‘ despite having a
party just before her treatment which several hundred of her pals attended.
The singer, who is Teen Vogue November’s cover girl, also opened
up about her body image and journey to self-acceptance in the publication.
‘I don’t have the body of a model or Barbie. My main thing about being in the spotlight with my fans is, I want to be real to them,’
Demi said. ‘I have my problem areas, but I’m happy in my skin right now. I’m not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body.’
Demi is appearing on the current season of Glee as the love interest of Santana, played by Naya Rivera. She is extremely proud of her work on the show and the role she portrays.
‘I’m honoured to portray a character that’s representing this chapter in our society,’ said Demi. ‘Being true to your sexuality and yourself is becoming the norm.’
Britney Spears’ father and manager have denied reports she was “pressured” into sexualising her image.
The pop star and mother-of-two confessed earlier this week she worries too much “sex” goes into her music videos and revealed she “cut half the video” for her latest single Work B***h because the shots were too racy.
But in a statement to TMZ, her father Jamie Spears and manager Larry Rudolph deny the star was ever pushed into amping up her sex appeal.
“Britney is never pressured into anything. She reviews all creative and for her Work B***h video she discussed toning down some parts in finding a balance of sexy and being a mom,” they said.
Britney has remained under her father’s conservatorship since 2008 following a very public meltdown.
The 31-year-old star appeared to give some insight into the tug-of-war for creative control over her projects in her recent interview with The TJ Show on AMP 103.3 and admitted she’d like to tone down her image.
“A lot of sex goes into what I do. But sometimes I would like to bring it back to the old days when there was like one outfit through the whole video, and you’re dancing the whole video, and there’s like not that much sex stuff going on,” she said.
“It’s about the dance and it’s about being old school, it’s like keeping it real and just making it about the dance. I’d love to do a video like that.”
Britney’s latest video was released on Tuesday. It features the star dancing in skimpy outfits and whipping her dancers, wearing bondage gear. Britney admitted cutting the sexiest scenes seemed to be the only way she could stay “true to herself”.
“Oh my god, we showed way more skin and did way more stuff for the video than what is actually there,” she said about the Work B***h clip.
“Like, I cut out half the video because I am a mother and because, you know, I have children, and it’s just hard to play sexy mom while you’re being a pop star as well.
“I just have to be true to myself and you know, feel it out when I do stuff.”
Just three months after he acquired two brand new cars – a 2013 Range Rover and a 2013 BMW X6, the singer has added a Bentley to his fleet of cars – the 2013 model.
Khloe Kardashian went shopping with her little sis and mum yesterday wearing a clingy low-cut top with no bra. She didn’t seem to notice or care that her nipples were on full display through her shirt. And although she didn’t step out with a bra, she stepped out with her wedding ring still in place, despite removing her estranged
husband’s name from all her social media accounts.
When asked if she designs her products herself, the former Miss World turned fashion entrepreneur said “Yes I do and I also have a team of designers I work with. The concepts of my label are all
mine. The sketches are mine. The designers just fine tune what I have created.”
Asked about what inspired her decision to go into fashion, she said “I have been working on different concept of lines before I decided to go into denim line because when I graduated from college, and I wanted to do something else, I asked myself what’s next for Agbani?
So, I chose fashion because it is the only thing that I wanted to do. I wanted something the masses could wear, at the same time, something profitable.

Hulk Hogan spoofs Miley Cyrus’ ”Wrecking Ball” video in a commercial for the new website hosting company Hostamania.
In the ad, the wrestling star is seen swinging from a wrecking ball in a thong.
(Yeah, it’s going to take a while to shake the visual out of your head.)
Cyrus, however, went totally nude for her video.
Let’s just hope Hogan now doesn’t mimic the NSFW photo shoot Cyrus just did for Terry Richardson .

Nicki Minaj is the latest celebrity to
personally refute a phony rumor being
spread by outlets including reality-challenged webloid HollywoodLife.
The site gleefully picked up a totally
unsubstantiated Star report alleging that the rapper had sex with Zac Efron over the summer, because regurgitating garbage is something HollywoodLife likes more than actually reporting.
And HollywoodLife excels at perpetuating completely made-up rumors about Efron’s love life !
This time around, in a headline that reads “Nicki Minaj and Zac Efron Had Steamy Sex Affair,”
HollywoodLies, er, HollywoodLife writes that the two stars “had sex in July,” and quotes a bogus “source” as saying, “Nicki took Zac to her house in West Hollywood. She said he was the best
lover she’s ever had.”
In a tweet since deleted, Minaj wrote, “Who exactly is Zac Efron tho? I’m sorry, I’m so confused,”
adding later after a fan sent a shirtless pic of him, “Oooohhhh ok… Well I guess that rumor isn’t so bad after all. lmfao.”
