Taylor Swift's never met a theme she didn't adore, so it seems only fitting that the songstress release a music video for her single "Red" on the eve of the most red, white and blue day of the year (i.e. the Fourth of July).
And with that, Crushers, we bid our fellow Americans a very happy Independence Day!
At the end of the season four of "The Vampire Diaries," the game completely changed. And, we mean, like, everything about everything we knew about our favorite characters became way different. (SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE EPISODE!)
During the season finale, the kids graduated. Stefan became bad boy demon, Silas. Katherine (whom Nina Dobrev promises will be as naughty as ever) crossed over to the human side. And Bonnie died, giving her love and Elena’s only relative, Jeremy, another chance at life.
So it would seem given Bonnie’s fate, fans may not see much of her come season five. But, Kat Graham is holding out hope that this isn't the last we've seen of the witch. She told MTV News at the BET Awards last Sunday, “Basically we're getting ready for the fifth season, so I don’t really know. I ended the last season dead, so it’s kind of up to them where it’s going to go. I don’t really know.”
Only a Queen could command an audience like this: Selena Gomez, Lea Michele, Bella Thorne, Chris Evans...they were all there for last night's L.A. stop on The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. But there was one star seen exiting the Staples Center whom we would have never pegged as a member of the Beyhive: "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson. Clad in his signature MTV letterman jacket (we love you too!), the 27-year-old was snapped leaving the venue following the sold-out show.
Now, Rob is a musician in his own right, not to mention an avowed karaoker, which got us wondering which of Beyoncé's hits would rank in his personal karaoke set list. After the jump, we break down the three most likely.
Where can you find all of Hollywood's hottest tonight? At the L.A. stop on Beyoncé's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, of course! "Glee" star Lea Michele was among the celebrities tweeting their preparations for the much-hyped concert.
And she's not alone. Jessica Alba and Mindy Kaling also took to the social networking site to enthuse about tonight's show.
Prime your eardrums for August 20—that's the day the soundtrack for the much-anticipated "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" hits stores and digital download! And, today, Republic Records, Constantin Film and Screen Gems have released the track listing for the album, with the promise of even more songs to come.
The soundtrack—which features an eclectic mix of artists, to be sure—boasts brand-new tunes from Demi Lovato, Zedd and Colbie Caillat. (In fact, Colbie teamed with producer David Hodges to write the ballad "When The Darkness Comes" specifically for the film.)
For the uninitiated, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"—based on the best-selling novel by Cassandra Clare—follows Brooklyn teen Clary Fray, whom upon her mother's disappearance discovers she's not as mundane as she thought, but is, in actuality, a member of an ancient race of demon destroyers known as Shadowhunters.

Demi Lovato has always been an open book when it comes to sharing the ups and downs of her life. But the singer is letting fans delve deeper into her life in the just-released e-book, "Demi," which serves as a companion piece to her album of the same name.
The e-book chronicles the 20-year-old's career and takes Lovatics inside the making of Demi, which dropped last month. "I wrote about personal experiences and became more candid about them," she says in a video clip featured in the release. "I also feel like my lyrics were more vulnerable, and I'm just really proud of how honest I was in this album."
Have you ever wanted to do music? If so, you're in luck! The guys of The Lonely Island (that would be Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) stopped by MTV News while promoting their upcoming album, The Wack Album, to give our own Josh Horowitz a lesson in the fine art.
Among the tidbits we gleaned: Music is the rhythmo de la noche, music comes from Greece, and Optimus Prime definitely digs music. (We feel so scholarly already!)

FROM MTV NEWS: Confession: "We Can't Stop" listening to Miley Cyrus' hot new single. Well...that's not exactly correct, seeing as MTV News took a quick break to hang with the starlet on the day of her jam's release.
And you better believe we talked about all kinds of things, including Miley's twerking video and maturing into a grown-up artist. Sample: "People think of me as a party animal, which I am a self-proclaimed party animal, but I also am the hardest-working person you'll ever know."
Check out our interview with Miley at MTV News!
It may be summer vacation for the leads of Fox's "Glee," but Mr. Schue (a.k.a. actor Matthew Morrison) is never far from his students' minds. A number of series stars (including Darren Criss and Chris Colfer) took to Twitter today to enthuse about their co-star's new album, Where It All Began, out today.
The album, fittingly, recalls Matthew's Broadway roots with standards like "Send in the Clowns," "Luck Be a Lady" and more.
FROM MTV NEWS: Put on your party shoes: Miley Cyrus has dropped her new single, "We Can't Stop," and, well, we can't stop pushing play on the poppy tune, which debuted on Ryan Seacrest's radio show today.
"I think I keep getting more connected with a sound that's my own," Miley said during the interview. "I love making music, so I've just been in the studio working. Everyone always judges. They say what they want. My fans [are] this group that's always stood by me. This song says where I am in my life right now."
