Fans have been waiting with bated breath for new music from the rock icon since 2003’s Reality, after which Bowie went on an extended hiatus from recording and performing.

holiday in the British Virgin Islands with unconfirmed girlfriend Taylor Swift, during which photogs captured the full extent of Styles' strange tattoo collection.One Direction bad boy Harry Styles is on the fast track to getting inked up like a biker. The UK singer was recently spotted by fans on
Since turning 18 on February 1 last year, Styles appears to have been going under the needle every chance he could, whether it's his professionally done pirate ship or a wonky padlock done by fellow UK singer Ed Sheeran. But the majority of his tattoos look scrawled on by a buddy, prison-style! Along with his professionally done pirate ship, swallows, bird cage, comedy/tragedy masks and “17 Black”, the singer also showed off hardly perfect tattoos of “Might as well…” on his hip, LA, NY and LON, “Can I cry?”, a coat hanger, a heart, a fish skeleton and other various scribbles, including actual scribble lines on his left arm.

As the year comes to a close, and the holiday stress puts your therapist on speed dial, why not take a moment from your debilitating rage against the department store cashier to reflect upon the last calendar year of music—we sure have. 2012 has brought us tripped out folk singers, potty-mouthed mermaids, indie super groups and jams hot enough to boil a waterbed, just to name a few.
While some of these artists have been around for longer than a hot second, we're selecting them based on their debut studio or major label albums dropping in 2012. After all, how can you choose a "Best New Artist" without hearing a completed effort? So let’s take a look at the artists we think gave this year a real good shakedown.
Kendrick Lamar: Certainly not a new face to the game, but this year marks the beginning of Kendrick Lamar’s journey into the hip-hop stratos as a full-fledged star. Following in the footsteps of other Dre protégés like Eminem and Snoop Dogg , the LA-based artist’s firstRead More »from Best New Artists Of 2012: Swimming Pools, Cemetaries And Too Much Blood

Get your tissues ready: Alicia Keys had the incredible opportunity to have the Empire State Building in New York City display it's brand new, and honest-to-gosh chillingly beautiful LED light show synchronized to her songs "Girl On Fire" and "Empire State Of Mind" on Monday night. Celebrating her latest album Girl On Fire dropping this Tuesday, the stunning singer cheered from a neighboring building as she watched the top of the Empire State Building flourish with an impressive array of colors and effects by PCK. With Sandy in the back of our minds, Keys was not only just celebrating her new album, but was also giving a touching homage to her hometown.
We could go on about the details of the light show, but the video speaks for itself. Don't you want to move to New York now?

photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImageLet's take a journey back more than a decade ago, to the 40th annual Grammy Awards. The year was 1998, and the legendary Bob Dylan was performing his single "Love Sick," when a man with the words "Soy Bomb" painted on his chest ran out from the back, wildly gesticulating next to the confused musician. Eventually the man was ushered off by security, and the rest was Grammy history. But with the Grammys around the corner, one has wonder: What happened to that guy?Read More »from Whatever Happened To Grammy-Crasher Soy Bomb?

Gwen Stefani performs in Paris in 2012 [Photo: David Wolff-Patrick/WireImage]Quite possibly the hottest mom in music, Gwen Stefani just keeps wowing us with her age-defying looks and awesome sense of style! And as if to prove age don't mean a thing, the No Doubt singer revisited some of her signature 90s styles--and looks even better now than she did almost 20 years ago.
At a private concert in Paris last night, Stefani rocked a belly-flaunting velvet halter top, plaid harem pants and knee-high patent leather combat boots. The ensemble is very similar to the one she wore in No Doubt's 1995 music video for their single "Spiderwebs", but with some twists that only a fashion mogul like Stefani could add.Read More »from Gwen Stefani’s Outfit Travels Back To The 90s, Her Body Doesn’t Have To!

Ladies and gentlemen, the United States of Sound is holding court as judge, jury and executioner of rock. We've got the exclusive on Soundgarden's next single off their first album since 1996's Down on the Upside! Check out our interview with lead man Chris Cornell and drummer Matt Cameron to hear what we can expect from their upcoming album and what they've been up to the past 16 years.
A song for rock purists, "Non-State Actor" shows a tight, refreshed Soundgarden well-evolved from the previous millennium's incarnation, and just heavy enough to satisfy hardcore fans. But it's just a taste of what sonic acquisitions band members have gleaned over the many years since breaking up.
Lyrically, the track couldn't be more timely with the presidential elections coming next week. Cornell sings, "We're not elected / But we will speak / We're not the chosen / But we believe / And we settle for / A little bit more than everything." After 16 years of silence, the band isn't wasting a word,Read More »from Soundgarden’s New Song! Check Out ‘Non-State Actor’ And Our Exclusive Interview
- Tiffany Lee | The New Now – Mon, Oct 29, 2012 4:02 PM EDTLipstick on a dude has never looked so badass. Canadian electro-pop artist John O'Regan, known as Diamond Rings, came by Y! Music to acoustically showcase some shining tracks off his second studio album, Free Dimensional.
Hailing from Toronto, O'Regan ran with bands that played Casio-pop to post-punk before breaking out with his own project. Diamond Rings melds elements of pop, rock, electro, indie and punk with deep, sinister vocals that can be as earnest as they are evil. Diamond Rings is yet to translate his position as music blogger darling to charting musician, but with similar upcoming artists like Grimes and Charlie XCX making huge waves, O'Regan is sure to be part of that tide.
With a range that can crank out dance floor jams to stage-diving anthems, paired with a high-concept sense of fashion and model-good looks (in person, he's seriously china doll flawless), O'Regan will soon prove to listeners that a diamond is forever.
