Katy Perry Launches New Label, Signs First Artist

Katy Perry is no doubt a busy body, but then again, if your latest record sold 286,000 copies in its opening week, you’d probably be pretty swamped too.

Still, in spite of this fact, it seems that the “Birthday” songstress has no intention of slowing her roll anytime soon. Yesterday, Perry took to Twitter to announce the launch of her new record label, Metamorphosis Music, an offshoot of Capitol Records.

As her first order of business, the 29-year-old pop superstar signed the Los Angeles-based singer Ferras, who is currently opening for Perry on The Prismatic World

Tyler the Creator Nick Cave Katy Perry Covers

Cover songs are a great chance to see who inspires a musician. Other times it’s a confusing crossing of genres. And sometimes, very rarely, it’s just weird.

Now, thanks to lowbrow pop artist Mark Ryden, the world gets to hear  Tyler the Creator, Nick Cave, Katy Perry, and “Weird Al” Yankovic cover “Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built for Two)” for a new compilation album. Haven’t heard the song before? That’s because it’s 122 years old.

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Ryden’s album, called The Gay Nineties Old Tyme Music: Daisy Bell, will have the above artists cover the …

Watch Katy Perry Cause Chaos In “Birthday” Video

From the Egyptian-inspired “Dark Horse” to the cameo-laden “Last Friday Night,” Katy Perry‘s videos are always a spectacle. Her new music video for “Birthday,” the latest single from her album Prism, is certainly no exception.

Playing five different characters, Perry infiltrates five birthday parties in disguise as the world’s worst birthday party entertainers and the results are fantastic. Almost entirely unrecognizable, Perry performs as elderly dancer Goldie, bar mitzvah MC Yosef Shulem, Kriss the clown, Ace the animal trainer and princess Mandee.

Head after the jump to check out the full video and watch as Perry causes chaos …

Free MP3: Katy Perry Featuring Juicy J – “Dark Horse” (Urban Remix)

Fans of pop music have likely begun to grow tired of Katy Perry’s latest smash, “Dark Horse,” after weeks of radio play, but this morning a new remix is making the rounds online that breathes fresh life into the trippiest top 40 single of 2014.

Dubbed the ‘Urban’ remix, the latest take on “Dark Horse” adds a second verse from Juicy J to the beginning of Perry’s Prism single. It’s a set of bars that fall in line with the verse included on the original cut, and it adds a nice new layer to the whole affair. You can stream …

Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” Video Edited After Change.org Petition Launched

Katy Perry‘s latest hit single is “Dark Horse,” which is taken from her recently released album, Prism. She recently premiered the music video for her song, but immediately after its release people began to criticize it for being blasphemous. The scene in question has Perry depicted as an Egyptian queen and she smites a man with lightning who is wearing a pendant that says “Allah” on it. Shazad Iqbal launched a Change.org petition to have the video removed from YouTube. After garnering 65,000 signatures Perry (or whoever manages her videos) removed the pendant from the video. The scene …

All Hail Queen Katy: The “Dark Horse” Video Is Here

Go ahead and cancel whatever plans you have for the next hour. Katy Perry has just released the official video for “Dark Horse” and the visuals are going to keep you glued to YouTube for the foreseeable future.

Opening in the fictional land of Memphis, Egypt ‘a crazy long time ago,’ the official “Dark Horse” video finds Katy Perry taking on the role of queen. She rules over a gorgeous and well-lit world bursting with bright colors and men whose muscles seem chiseled from stone, but none of that can compare to the gang of cat-headed followers that …

UTG PHOTOS: Tegan and Sara (2/7/14)

Under The Gun sent photographer, Kellie Gannon, to photograph Tegan and Sara at the Masonic Auditorium in Cleveland on February 7, 2014.

I have to admit, I’ve had a girl crush on Tegan and Sara ever since I first heard “Walking With A Ghost” a decade ago. This killer track, from 2004′s So Jealous, ended up on countless mix CDs I made that coincided with my new driver’s license and newfound freedom to cruise around and blast whatever tunes I wanted.  That was ten years ago — fast forward to now and I was more than psyched …

STREAM: Our Last Night – “Dark Horse” (Katy Perry Cover)

I don’t think I could ever get sick of hearing Our Last Night cover pop songs. They’ve released some of my favorite covers to date, and today they proved they’re not ready to stop yet by premiering yet another cover. This time, they decided to produce their re-imagined version of Katy Perry‘s latest hit, “Dark Horse.” You can watch the video for the song by taking a look below.

The original version has some heavy bass in the background, but OLN decided to substitute that for the sound of the full band. While I would have loved to hear …

Lorde and Metallica Will Perform at Grammys

In case you haven’t heard, this year’s Grammys is going to be incredible. The lineup already includes a star-studded list of performances like Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder, Kendrick Lamar, and Pink. Now the Recording Academy confirmed that Metallica, Lorde, and Katy Perry will also be performing at this year’s gala — together (just kidding).

This is Metallica’s first time in over two decades performing at the Grammys though and they will be accompanied by Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang because, well, we’re not sure why, but they were nominated for Best Recording Package for the Through the Never

Highest Paid Musicians Of 2013 Ranked By Forbes

Ready to throw up? If you’re in a cubicle like me right now, reading this list only makes you feel sad and inferior.

Forbes has officially released their list of the highest paid musicians of 2013.

All of these statistics aren’t based solely on record sales and concert tickets, but musicians with the highest total income. Madonna can accredit her fragrances and clothing. Jay-Z can thank his, everything. He owns some rocket ships and the NBA right?

When taking into consideration the factors that constitute income, Forbes:
