Lykke Li: Live on KEXP

Lykke Li recently headed to KEXP in Seattle to perform a few songs from her achingly beautiful new album “I Never Learn.”

If you have not yet heard this album, you MUST get on it. It’s an incredibly honest and raw effort that tugs at the heartstrings. If you have heard it, what are your favorite songs?

Kylie Minogue planning to collaborate with Madonna, Dannii Minogue + more?

This year Kylie Minogue will celebrate her 25th year in music and she is apparently working on big things! Dean Piper at the Sunday Mirror reports today that she is planning to duet with none other than Madonna!

This is huge news and we hope it’s true! He also reports she’s planning to duet with her sister Dannii Minogue who is another of our favorite ladies!

Cross your fingers! Happy 2012!

Madonna: W.E. Documentary

A few days ago Madonna released this twenty minute documentary detailing the making of W.E. It features some wonderful behind the scenes footage from the movie set and interviews with the cast, stylist Arianne Phillips and of course lady M herself.

Are you excited for the release of W.E? Those of you that have already seen it we want to know what you think! Let’s discuss in the comments!

Rihanna: You Da One (Video Premiere)

A blonde Rihanna works it out in the new video for You Da One, the latest single to be taken from Talk That Talk.  The clip was directed by Melina Matsoukas, who also created the controversial We Found Love and S&M videos, and  it draws inspiration from Clockwork Orange. I think that Ri Ri may well be the only person I’ve seen that makes wearing a grill looks good!

Stay turned to Hard Candy for a very special Talk That Talk giveaway coming up soon!
