Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Martin Go Public With Rumored Romanc
This weekend's iHeartRadio music festival brought out the big guns for several days of fab performances, but the one duet everyone is talking about is the official "coming out" of Jennifer Lawrence and Coldplay's Chris Martin as a couple.

A source told PEOPLE Magazine, that Lawrence, "was off to the side of the stage when he performed."

Review: After Many Delays Chris Brown's 'X' Is Stronger Than Expected

September 18th, 2014 3:30pm EDT
Chris Brown - X
What’s a deadly disease that damages a musician’s career? The correct answer is the delayed album. Sure, controversy does the same (Chris Brown might know something about that), but the delayed album can be truly devastating. Brown’s sixth studio album X has been delayed several times. That said, even at its most imperfect, X is better than previous LP Fortune. Not only was Fortune filled with curse words, it also incited curse words…

"X" opens the effort mysteriously, gradually evolving into electro-R&B. It sports repetition and gimmickry commonplace to contemporary R&B and pop. Eve...

Christian Rapper Lecrae Takes ‘Anomaly’ To The Top Of Billboard 200

September 18th, 2014 8:31am EDT
Lecrae Anomaly
It’s rare that the Christian rapper debuts atop the Billboard 200. How rare – well it never happens – like “never ever.” Anyways, Lecrae made it happen this week as Anomaly outperformed early prognostications and sold 88,000 copies. Lecrae was able to hold off a strong second week from Maroon 5’s V (80,000 copies, #2) as well as what was thought to be a tight race with Jhené Aiko (Souled Out sold 70,000 copies, good for #3).

While Lecrae’s debut is celebratory, it is also another week where no albums moved 100,000 copies. Throw in the fact that besides Lecrae and Jhené Aiko, the top ...

“Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik just isn’t a fan of Ariana Grande.
