Video: Nicki Minaj performs ‘Pound The Alarm’ on ‘The Tonight Show with Leno’


Wearing a nude-colored bodysuit — complete with jewels and peacock feathers — Nicki Minaj bought the party to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday (July 13).

The “Beez in the Trap” rapper sat with Leno and reminisced about her job working at Red Lobster. “I didn’t want to be there and the customers could tell,” said Nicki. “They always want too much bread. That’s what bothered me. Please, if you go to Red Lobster, stop ordering extra bread.”

Following her chat, Nicki, who stars in Ice Age: Continental Drift, lit up the stage with her colorful performance of “Pound The Alarm,” the latest single from her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

As usual, it was all about the choreography when Chris Brown took over Rockefeller Plaza on Friday morning for the TODAY Show ‘Toyota Summer Concert Series.’

Video| Justin Bieber rocks ‘The Voice’


A timid Justin Bieber braved through his first live performance of “Boyfriend” on Tuesday night’s finale of The Voice.  Flanked by a group of dancers, the 18-year-old heartthrob, who earned his high school diploma earlier this week, spit rhymes and attempted to display his falsetto, even though it seemed slightly off.  Not his best showing, but the choreography (somewhat) made up for it.

His sophomore album, Believe, hits stores June 19.

Watch Bieb perform below.

Bobby Brown Says He’s ‘Not the Reason’ Whitney Houston’s Gone


In his first interview since Whitney Houston’s death, Bobby Brown dispels the longstanding rumor that he introduced her to drugs.

“I’m not the reason she’s gone,” he said of his ex-wife in the new interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer, which airs on TODAY on Wednesday and Thursday. “I didn’t get high before I met Whitney … I smoked weed, I drank the beer, but no, I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all.”

He also says he’s “hurt” by the news that cocaine played a factor in her death. “I didn’t know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know– listen, it’s a hard fight. It’s a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way,” he said.

Brown and Houston married on July 28, 1992, and welcomed their daughter Bobbi Kristina in 1993. After years of negative press and personal turmoil, they filed for divorce in 2006.

Whitney Houston’s death was officially ruled an accidental drowning last month.  The global superstar died the day before the Grammy Awards at age 48.

Christina Aguilera Performs ‘Fighter’ on ‘The Voice’


Strutting in a racy outfit reminiscent of her ‘Dirrty’ days, Christina Aguilera led her team in a showstopping performance of her hit single “Fighter,” on Monday’s episode of The Voice.

The noticeably thicker Aguilera teased fellow judge Blake Shelton before singing a line from his “Hillbilly Bone” track and tossing some singles at him for good measure.  Front and center, the pop star belted the lyrics to the inspirational tune; soon after members from her team rose from the crowd and behind the stage to trade verses with the Grammy winner.  It was long before all four members of Team Christina took full control of the stage, flanked by dancers and the Crenshaw High School choir.

Since Bionic tanked faster the Titanic, Xtina has looked less like a pop superstar and more like a drag queen who got a too liberal with the make-up. Weight jokes aside, the woman who have us the masterpiece, Stripped, needs to fire whoever is signing off on this blonde ‘f-ck me’ hair, yeast infection-ready attire, that pushes her boobs so far up they look they’re about to pop out her damn throat, and go back to looking and sounding good.

As for the performance… um, just watch below.
