Music News Wrap Up: Ariana Grande’s New Video, Nicki Minaj to Perform at VMAs, and More


 Ariana Grande’s releases a new video for her single “Break Free”.


 Ariana proves that slowing down is not in her agenda as she releases her music video for “Break Free” the song features Zedd and is the second single off of her sophomore album, titled My Everything. 

 The rising pop star channels her inner space diva as she shoots aliens and has her very own Katy Perry ‘California Gurls’ moments as she floats around in zero gravity in a scandalous space suit (I’m still not sure if those are even the right words for what it is) and her signature do: the half pony. Zedd appears at the end of the video as DJ sent from the spacecraft before the two blast off together.


Is Nicki Minaj Performing at the 2014s VMAs?


Good news! The “Pills N Potions” singer is slated to perform the new single–Anaconda–as she joins the already star-studded list of performances for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards. Nicki will be joining  Britney Spears, Beyoncé, the Beastie Boys, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson (please not another beyond scary hologram), R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Taylor Swift.

 She goes on to say, “The VMAs is a pretty big deal; so people go all out for it. I am very, very excited and looking forward to the performance.”

 The news comes fresh off the heels of her last “controversy” concerning the cover art for her “Anaconda” single. In which, she was snapped wearing Air Jordans, a pink sports bra and matching G-string. This lead to many discussions concerning the matter of just what is considered acceptable to be shown to the general public and how far can “racy” go.


*Warning: There Be Booties Lurking*


I, however, don’t think much of it since Nicki stated it was her way of “self-expression and staying true to who she was” and it’s Nicki Minaj, it’s not like this is something brand new. But that’s just my opinion. I applauded Terrence J, a co-anchor on E News, when he voiced his opinion in that he saw nothing wrong with the picture and that it should be treated and regarded in the same way all of the models and celebs that post skimpy posts to internet sites like Instagram.

She told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, “Well you know, in the beginning of my career, I did pictures like that, I did photo shoots like that. And I didn’t want to lose that sense of who I am.”
