  • Pop2it
You knew Trey Songz could make magic with his voice, but did you know that his true passion lies with his charitable efforts?

The singer performed at an NYC Benefit on Friday night, sponsored by the Hot 97 radio station, for the Angels With Heart Foundation. Songz launched the Foundation that night. Angels With Heart is particularly focused on helping underprivileged children and at-risk youth, with special attention given to encouraging successful artists and actors to donate their time and resources to brightening up the kids' days.

"This is something bigger than myself," Songz said at the event. "I realized I have the power to impact lives, and it's time to send that love back into the world. Every dollar from tonight's show will go to my foundation."

Bands We Like: Solid Gold

By Zachary Swickey

It’s easy to get lost in the slew of new, digitally-tinged indie bands that offer little beyond what Mgmt already created four years ago. Oversaturation of a genre can cause some bands to get lost in the mix, which is a shame when the band is great. Case in point: Solid Gold, who concoct some of the most original, experimental synth pop sounds whole music world has to offer.

Solid Gold was formed ten years ago by a trio of friends at the University of Wisconsin. After a migration to equally chilly Minneapolis, Minn., and some lineup adjustments, Solid Gold finally began shaping their psychedelic persona. Originally sticking to a drum machine for percussive duties, the group eventually enlisted a real drummer, and added a slide guitarist for a little something extra to expand their sound.

The band released their debut album, Bodies of Water, in

A Timeline Of Where Demi Lovato Was When Her Current Collaborators Hit It Big

Demi Lovato is working hard on her new, as-yet-untitled album. The first single from the Sept. 20 release, “Skyscraper,” dropped earlier this month and was a hit with fans and supporters of the recovering young singer, debuting in the Billboard top ten. Its buzzed-about video was directed by Mark Pellington, the man behind clips from Alice in Chains, Bruce Springsteen, Inxs, Nine Inch Nails, Public Enemy and, most famously, Pearl Jam’s 1993 MTV Vma Best Video-winning “Jeremy.”

So that’s weird (in a good way)!

The former Disney diva is currently in the studio working on tracks with Timbaland and Missy Elliott. That’s right, not Dr. Luke or RedOne or The-Dream … Timbaland and Missy Elliott. (Which is also kind of strange, isn’t it?)

These guys are pros, of course, and are sure to deliver the goods, but the entire endeavor feels straight out of the early aughts. Maybe that

Sound on Sight Radio #275: Errol Morris’s ‘First Person’

While we wait around to see his new film Tabloid (which, between our recording this episode and its publication, has a new trailer – see below), we thought it appropriate to take a look at Errol Morris’s First Person, the two-season TV series Morris directed. Mike, Derek and Simon pick out three of the series’ seventeen portraits of the damaged, the brilliant and the disturbed: “The Killer Inside Me,” starring “serial killer groupie” Sandra London; “I Dismember Mama,” the tale of a man, a dream, and a frozen head; and “One in a Million Trillion,” the story of what happens when an immovable object meets Regis Philbin.

  • OnTheFlix
Ne-Yo sang 'Champagne Life' & more at 2010 American Music Awards. The very brilliant,very soulful,R&B star Ne-Yo hit the 2010 American Music Awards stage last night to crank out a very entertaining 4 song set,which included: "Champagne Life," "One in a Million," "Telekinesis," and "Beautiful Monster." This guy really knows hot to perform. He started off his set with "Champagne Life," and I really like this song. The beat was right on point. Ne-Yo performed some great dance moves to the song. Then he went right into the mid-tempo "One in a Million" song where he displayed more slick dance moves and theatrics with his female backup dancers.

'Dwts': Bristol Palin Survives, Eliminated Margaret Cho Gets Teary

One more contestant has been given the boot on "Dancing with the Stars". While Bristol Palin and "Jersey Shore" hunk The Situation got another shot in the battle for the coveted mirror ball trophy, comedienne Margaret Cho was told to pack her dancing shoes during the result show on Tuesday night, October 5.

Though she was the one who brought "much laughter" to the show, the 41-year-old wasn't laughing when she learned she is the third celebrity getting the boot. In fact, she shed tears after the announcement. "I was surprised because I had the best teacher," she said as referring to partner Louis Van Amstel.

Margaret also opened up about what she thought about the judges' comments. "I thought the judges were really hard on me but I think you were really hard on me because you could see that I was a dancer...for real," she said. "And I thank you for that.

Ne-Yo Intrigued to Join Forces With Lady GaGa

There is a big possibility that Ne-Yo could add Lady GaGa to the list of artists, other than Rihanna and Beyonce Knowles, he will have a collaboration with. When speaking to MTV News recently, the singer/producer opened up about his interest in joining forces with the "Bad Romance" singer.

"We've been talking to Gaga's people about some stuff," the 30-year-old singer admitted. Although there are talks already, he pointed out the set back. "Gaga's very difficult to get a hold of as of late, for obvious reasons. She's very busy," he said. "We've been talking to her people about doing some stuff."

Asked how would he apply his music to GaGa's, the R&B star spilled, "I have no idea! That's kind of the intriguing thing that I have no idea what that song would sound like." He added, "I don't know, but I feel like it would be interesting to see.

Watch: Ne-Yo takes it to the streets for 'One in a Million' video

Now that’s what we’re talking about. For all the strutting that Usher and Chris Brown have been doing in videos lately, we’ve missed having some flat out dancing (so far Janelle Monae’s clip for “Tightrope” has the best dance moves of the year). Leave it to Ne-Yo to bring the dancy back (go ahead and groan, we are) in his new video for “One in a Million.” The song is only so-so, but the dancing is smooooooth. We don’t know why he’s pissed off his lady, but she’s mad and no amount of trickery (and we really mean trickery--he seems to...

Aaliyah's Death: Still Shocking Nine Years Later

On this day in 2001, the music world lost one of its true visionaries when Aaliyah, who was only 22 years old at the time, died in a plane crash along with eight other passengers after filming a music video in the Bahamas. Her tragic passing came just as she was releasing her finest album Aaliyah, which had come out only a month prior to hear death. Though she was only 22, she had still managed to become an industry veteran, as she appeared on "Star Search" at the age of nine and signed her first record deal at 12. She recorded her first album Age Ain't Nothing But a Number when she was only 14, and she had two Gold singles and a platinum album before her 16th birthday.

Because she was so young, the early part of Aaliyah's career was devoted to being something of a cipher, first for R. Kelly (who

Exclusive! Kardashian Family Friend Jonathan Cheban Defends Kendall Jenner’s Racy Bikini Photos!

Jonathan says, “She’s so pretty, what else is she supposed to do?” Do you agree with him that Kendall’s bikini pics are age-appropriate?

Do you think the recent beach photos taken of the 14-year-old Kardashian sister, Kendall Jenner, are too risqué for her age? Well, a Very good friend of the Kardashian family, Jonathan Cheban, certainly doesn’t! “I don’t think the photos are too provocative,” Jonathan told HollywoodLife.com exclusively July 28 at the Project Runway season eight premiere party at the Empire Hotel in NYC. “She’s so pretty, what else is she supposed to do?

One in a million kids look like that,” Jonathan continued. “The family is in entertainment, so it’s not like they found her in Ohio and she’s randomly exposing herself. … Why not show what you have?”

But even though Jonathan admitted he thinks Kendall is beautiful, his heart still belongs to her older sister,

Missy 'Misdemeanor' Elliott Gets Fly: Wake-Up Video

The world became a little more funky on this day in 1997, as it was the day when Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott released Supa Dupa Fly, her stunning, instant-classic debut that changed the way people thought about mainstream hip-hop. In dropping Supa Dupa Fly, Elliott — along with friend, producer and regular tag-team partner Timbaland — created a whole new universe full of syncopated beats, twitchy dance grooves and stream-of-consciousness lyrics that often flirted with the absurd.

Elliott and Timbaland had already been making waves behind the scenes before the release of Supa Dupa Fly, most notably on Aaliyah's One in a Million (she had also written and produced tracks for Jodeci, Swv and 702). Elliott had also become a coveted guest artist, dropping in on tracks and remixes for the likes of New Edition, Lsg and Mc Lyte. All the while, Elliott and Timbaland were hard at work crafting their own set of bizarre

Mark Burnett's One in a Million will be a daytime, daily, syndicated singing competition

Because five months of American Idol just isn't enough, Mark Burnett will produce a syndicated, daily singing competition that will launch in the fall of 2011. One in a Million, which is being produced along with Trifecta entertainment, sounds pretty much like the Fox competition, except it unfolds every single day, with three judges making decisions about who to send on to the next round.
