A snippet of a never before released Demi Lovato track has hit the internet! The single, called "Shut Up and Love Me," is an old song and most likely will not make it onto any new album Lovato may release in 2011.

But nonetheless, it's a glimmer of hope for Lovato fans, who have been waiting patiently for the talented singer and actress to come out of rehab. Lovato has been receiving treatment for "emotional and physical issues" at Timberline Knolls, a center located just outside of Chicago in Lemont, Illinois since October, 2010.

Behind the Scenes: J.Lo's "On the Floor" Music Video
By Mariela Rosario | 01/25/2011 - 16:16

We were super excited to hear that Jennifer Lopez was already shooting the music video for her new single, “On the Floor!”

The new American Idol judge looks absolutely stunning (as usual) and the energy of the video really does make you want to just dance."I play one character where she kind of runs this party, acts like she’s kind of over it, but at the same time loves it and loves this kind of underground kind of party dance culture," explains Lopez. "So I got to be wild and crazy, and I got to be sexy and sweet too."

J.Lo's "On the Floor" Vs. Kat De Luna's "Party O'Clock"
By Mariela Rosario | 01/19/2011 - 14:05

Some people are questioning producer RedOne and Jennifer Lopez on the origins of her new single featuring Pitbull, "On the Floor."

Critics are pointing out similarities between the new song and a single Kat de Luna released back in November of 2010 in Europe called "Party O'Clock." We can't lie, the competing dance ditties do share similar lyrics and a general sound—but isn't producer RedOne (who created both songs) more to blame for this faux-pas than either of these Latin divas?

WATCH: An Explosive Performance from Bruno Mars on 'Ellen'
By Mariela Rosario | 01/07/2011 - 13:20

Bruno Mars is fast becoming one of our fave new artists and we have a sneaky feeling that 2011 is his year. It might have something to do with his seven (!) Grammy nominations, or maybe it's his awesome new album Doo-wops & Hooligans that we have in constant rotation on our iPod. Either way, our suspicions were further confirmed when we saw him absolutely slay his performance on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
