Britney's Version of Telephone Leaked

So apparently the blogosphere is a buzz with the leaked demo Britney Spears did of Lady Gaga's mess known as "Telephone." Check out the auto-tuned to death track below. Honestly, I wonder how it would have sounded once it went through the producers hands and onto the radio waves. It can't be worse than the one that's played constantly right now AND the video would have been hot. Britney may not be a great singer, but she knows how to turn out a damn good music video.

Janelle Monáe - Tightrope

Janelle Monáe is the biggest and brightest breath of fresh air to come into the stagnant music scene in the past few years. Her first album in 2007, Metropolis Suite I of IV: The Chase was a mixture of James Brown soul and futuristic sounds tied together with her sweet and endearing vocal ability. She is gearing up to release her newest album The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III of IV) in May and it should be a great record. Check out the trailer and her breakthrough video for "Many Moons" below.

Pink Wows Grammy's with Glitter In The Air

Pink has had a successful run with her latest album Funhouse that's spawned a bunch of great singles like "So What" and "Sober" but she really brought herself worldwide attention with her unique (and SIMPLE) performance of "Glitter In The Air." She got herself a standing ovation, which alone is impressive against Beyonce's yelling and Lady Gaga's over the top gimmicks. Congrats Pink, you deserve it.

Bubbling Up: Selah Sue

Selah Sue is a young singer and songwriter from Belgium (land of Brussel Sprouts and Jean-Claude Van Damme) who's been making waves with her spot on youtube covers of great songs. Below, watch her cover Amy Winehouse's cover of the Zuton's song "Valerie" (one of my favorites). Her EP titled Black Part Love was released in 2008. She sounds like Duffy a little.

Jeffree Star - Get Away With Murder

 I find Jeffree Star kinda intriguing. He's making fun of all the crap that's going on in pop culture today and the dude can sing. The video for "Get Away With Murder" is over the top dance fluff but it puts all those pop tartlets to shame! The song is the first single lifted from his latest album Beauty Killer. If you're bored of the state of music (and entertainment as a whole) these days take a listen, its pretty fresh and a sick dance tune.
