Kimberly Caldwell: Desperate Girls and Stupid Boys (Video Premiere and Single Review)

by Bradley Stern

It’s been a minute since I last wrote about Kimberly Caldwell. In case you’re less than familiar and/or new ’round these parts, Caldwell was the throaty seventh place runner-up of American Idol: Season 2.

by Bradley Stern

Last night, I asked (on Twitter) what people would like to see featured on MuuMuse.

On February 2, Koda Kumi will be… Read the full article

Ellie Goulding Releases “Your Song” as First Single off of Upcoming Re-Release, ‘Bright Lights’

by Bradley Stern

On Friday, Ellie Goulding released “Your Song,” the first single off of her sublime debut, Lights. (LISTEN) The song is an acoustic cover of Elton John‘s 1970 classic. No synthesizers, no vocal layering–just straight-up crooning on top of a piano and some sad strings. And while that description isn’t one normally associated with Goulding’s musical… Read the full article

Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (can we take a moment for the name?) has a new song coming out called “Poison.” You can call it a ‘comeback’ if you want, but…let’s face it: She hasn’t scratched the charts enough as a solo artist to consider this anything other than a FORMAL DEBUT. “Poison” is: +… Read the full article

Kim Zolciak Snatches Her Own Wig With “Google Me”

by Bradley Stern

We as a society owe so much to Auto-Tune. The audio processing equipment responsible for jump-starting the careers of such acts as the already irrelevant T-Pain and smelly pop sensation Ke$ha has granted us countless musical triumphs, including Cher‘s legendary comeback (“Believe”), Paris Hilton‘s shamefully good debut record, and of course, Heidi Montag‘s legendary feat… Read the full article
