You can only be so popular in high school when you play a trombone. Despite her band camp tendancies, Nelly Furtado says she was actually pretty popular and involved in high school activities when she was 16.
“It’s horrible, I was popular!” she said. “We were the cool girls. We were also really involved in school activities. I was the head of the graduation committee, organizing all the grad events.”
Needless to say, host Jordan Bortolotti was disappointed his 16-year-old self probably wouldn’t have a chance with Nelly Furtado’s 16-year-old self.
“You never know!” said Nelly.
In this episode of Way Back When, the singer talks about playing the trombone, being obsessed with TLC and what her teen self would think of her current pop-stardom.

Want to throw a raging house party like electronic duo DVBBS? Partying is obligatory in the “woozy” lifestyle so the electronic duo have pretty much gone pro. Alex and Chris decided to throw a wild kegger this past summer and we got the whole thing on camera.
No one said partying hard was easy, and this one came with a few broken bylaws. The house party was so wild it was eventually shut down by the cops, but not without some sick music and dancing first. If you want to throw a raging house party too, just check out their how-to guide, below.

One of the most endearing things about indie dance duo Matt and Kim is their wicked sense of humour and candid war stories, including getting blackout drunk or fooling around with “groadies” (groupies + roadies).
Apart from being hilarious, their fourth-studio album Lightning is addictive. They were happy to go back to their DIY roots, recording it themselves from their hometown in New York — which also meant they didn’t have to wear pants (WIN).
In their interview with ANDPOP’s @Jordans_Life, Matt and Kim also revealed how they got their start with the after-hours MTV crowd.
“When we started out we were just playing loft parties and house parties and stuff like that and we ended up hosting a show on MTV really early on before were doing any legit venue shows,” said Matt. “But it’s just probably because the people who were coming to those parties and stuff like that are also —”
” — people who work for MTV or write for magazines,” added Kim.
“So you’re in front of those people just when they’re going out to gett blackout drunk,” Matt laughed.
Either way, we’re happy they caught the attention of those reporters early on because we’re obsessed!

You know celebrities are too rich for their own good when they let their significant others take over their whole wardrobe. Because in the case of Kim Kardashian, that’s exactly what she let Kanye West do in an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
In the preview of Sunday’s episode, Kim is given an ultimatum to ditch the entire wardrobe she currently has while Kanye proposes that he’ll purchase the replacement.
With a whole new and expensive wardrobe provided for free, it’s obvious Kim obliges.
As she and her main squeeze check out the new clothes, Kanye is quick to praise his own pickings saying, “Look how dope this s–t is.”
And as he knows his mission is complete after Kim comes out in a dress with a very plunging neckline, he comments, “[You're] getting on best dressed lists now. You’re stepping into this territory. You look amazing — it’s a new Kim!”
I’m by no means a fan of a man taking control of a woman’s wardrobe. Because really, who gives Kanye the right to tell Kim what to wear? But after watching the video, I could not help but laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of it. How nice it must be to be rich and buy a completely new wardrobe. And given that the pile of her old clothes was massive, I sure as hell hope she ACTUALLY donated it to a good cause!
That being said, do you like Kimye? Or is Kanye West being too controlling?
Watch the Kanye make Kim throw out her wardrobe here.
The andPOP crew watches and discusses videos of the creepiest Easter bunny ever and a cat with an unhealthy addiction to catnip. Then we brainstorm prank call ideas for our interview with the guys from The Buried Life tonight.
Jay-Z is going home to Brooklyn to perform in the new Barclays Center arena that opens in September 2012.
The Daily News is saying Jay will perform eight shows in the facility next fall. He also formally announced that the New Jersey Nets will officially be known as the Brooklyn Nets when the NBA team moves into arena next year.

Fox has cancelled five current shows and is adding three new ones, E Online reports.
In a ruthless move, Fox has also canceled ‘Lie to Me,’ ‘The Chicago Code,’ and ‘Traffic Light.’ The network has also canceled ‘Human Target’ after just two seasons, as well as the new Christian Slater comedy ‘Breaking In.’
It’s being called #FOXapolipse on Twitter.
Ruthless, indeed. But with that comes three new shows to expect for the fall.
First on the list of new shows is the ‘Bones’ spinoff ‘The Finder,’ starring Geoff Stults, which is based off an episode of ‘Bones’ that aired last month.
Also added to the Fox network is the drama ‘Alcatraz’ from J.J. Abrams, the mastermind behind ‘Lost’ and ‘Fringe.’
In the comedy department, Fox is adding ‘The New Girl,’ an ensemble show exploring the sexual politics among men and women. The show will star Zooey Deschanel and Damon Wayans Jr.
I personally won’t miss any of the cancelled shows. The new ones sound sort of promising. ‘The New Girl’ is probably the only one I’ll actually check out, because I love Zooey Deschanel. The show ‘Alcatraz’ will probably worth checking out too, I mean, J.J. Abrams, hello. What do you think of the switch-ups?
She is the hardest working woman in show business, but that stress level seems to be taking its toll on Lady Gaga. Days after crumpling to the floor during a New Zealand concert, Lady Gaga took to the airwaves to explain what happened.
“I was so jet lagged,” she told the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O on Friday. “I passed out about three times on stage that night but I got myself to the floor. I’d rather die on stage than walk off because I was going to pass out.”
Fanfarlo – A fascinating group the UK who’s live show is energetic, eclectic and wonderful all at the same time. Brilliant instrumentation. Soaring hooks that transport the audience right out of the tent. A true collective of musicians who clearly love what they do and who they are. Arguably the next Arcade Fire. Do not miss their live show.
Nneka – A truly unifying artist. Her raw talent and sheer emotion captivated skater kids and old record execs alike. You get the idea that she’s singing about what she knows… which unfortunately is a whole lot of pain. Nonetheless, it takes someone remarkably special to transform that into the beautifully instrumented gems that she belts out onstage. This year will be remembered as the year that Nneka came to town.
Ever since her skyrocket to pop royalty, Lady Gaga has been living a whirlwind life – and it seems to finally have caught up with her. According to rollingstone.com, Gaga was supposed to play a concert in Indiana last Thursday, but cancelled at the last minute when she collapsed backstage.

“Due to exhaustion and dehydration, Lady Gaga collapsed and passed out before her show tonight in West Lafayette, Indiana,” the pop singer’s publicist told Rolling Stone. “Her physician has advised her to take a few days off to rest.” It was not specified exactly how long Gaga will be off the stage, but the Indiana show has been rescheduled for Jan. 26.
Gaga’s shows on the 16 in New Jersey and the 17 in Wallingford, Connecticut have been cancelled. Her Uncasville, Connecticut show on the 18 was postponed. However, her four-night gig at New York’s Radio City Music Hall, starting on Jan. 20 (tomorrow), are still said to be going ahead as planned.

Furthermore, LiveNation (the tour’s promoter) announced that Saturday’s show in Atlantic City, and Sunday’s show in Wallingford, Connecticut have been cancelled, and that Monday’s show in Uncasville, Connecticut will be rescheduled.
Gaga tweeted about the Thursday night event, explaining to disappointed fans, “I’ve been crying for hours, I feel like I let my fans down 2nite. An hour before the show, I was feeling dizzy and having trouble breathing.”
