Mariah Carey has released the title to the follow-up single to smash, #Beautiful. Are you ready for this? Well here it is, the name of her next single will be: The Art Of Letting Go...Yes, the same title as that of her new album. You know, the one she told us the name of back in August! Totally worth the wait...
Also, Mariah dropped a message to her lambs, via Facebook, telling them of the trials and tribulations that she has suffered of late. Her latest set will reflect these struggles, thus creating one of her most "important albums" to date . No shade, but Mariah, you say near enough the same thing everytime you release a new album. Still stoked for it though.
I'm so happy to be able to catch up with everybody here on Facebook. The last three months of my life have not been easy. Getting through this injury has been the toughest experience of my life. It took me three months to get to this point but thank God I was able to recover and get my arm back. It's a huge deal, it should have taken eight months and even my doctors can't believe it. It's been a long journey, the physical therapists have been incredible and I am very grateful to all of them for helping me.
When people expected me to go "Here I am, I'm back and everything's great!", it didn't happen because my hand was still in tremendous pain and it took this long for it to heal. I've been working day and night, and it took a lot of rest (though I did sneak in to the studio a couple o' times!) but I can finally say that I am on my way to a full recovery.
There's a lot of excitement that I'm going to reveal to you very soon, and sooner than you know it, you're going to understand why but more than that, you're going to feel what I've been feeling for the past- not three months- but three years.
This is, to me, one of the most important albums I've ever made in my life. If you're a lamb, a fan, or just a human being that needs to feel good, happy, sad, miserable, joyous... "I gotcha" (said like Roc- you haven't heard how he says it yet but you will soon, it's a complete+total classic!)
I joked about Britney Spears being CGI-ed in the video for lastest single Work B!tch in the comments section of that post. Guess what? Turns out it may actually be true. Odd thing is, she actually looks great pre editing- and not that different. I guess someone doesn't think the public wants to see what hours of dancing does to a body- makes you look fierce, that's what!!
Also, the Diva has released the title for her December-due album. Say hello to LP number eight, Britney Jean.

Lady Gaga has released a taster of new track, G.U.Y. 12 seconds seems hardly worth listening to, but I'm sure someone will appreciate this preview of another Artpop song. I can't say I'm fussed about it in all honesty.
Cher is on track to gain her first top-40 hit (in the in UK) with new single, I Hope You Find It. This will be the first time in 12 years the singer has graced our charts! Whoop! Check out the lyric video for the ballad below.
Charlotte Church has weighed in on being a young female in the music industry. Commenting on her own experiences growing up in the oft-toxic environment, the Mezzo told the Radio Academy radio festival:
"There was a big clamour to cover my breasts as they wanted to keep me as young as possible...Then it became, 'You should definitely get them out, they look great.'"She also spoke of her regret at the "sexing-up" of her own image when trying to break away from her classical roots:
"Whilst I can't defer all the blame away from myself, I was barely out of my teenage years, and the consequence of this portrayal of me is that now I am frequently abused on social media," she said. "Now I find it difficult to promote my music where it would be best suited because of my history.The more I hear about the inner workings of the industry, the dirtier I feel in supporting and propagating its "products"
"The culture of demeaning women in pop music is so ingrained as to become routine, from the way we are dealt with by management and labels, to the way we are presented to the public."
