Looking skinny and sounding as great as ever, Mariah Carey took to the stage in New York City last night for the first time since giving birth 10 months ago.

"Do you love them babies?" she asked the crowd at one point of Moroccan and Monroe. "I really wanted to bring them here tonight, but Monroe is sometimes shy and takes a while to warm up to an audience. Rock and roll! Nah, but it's late. It's time for them to be asleep."

Donning a skintight black dress and covered in diamonds, Carey broke into such tracks as "It's Like That," "Obsessed," "I'll Be There," and a new version of "Shake You Off." Watch the latter below:

Finally, Chris Brown news that doesn't involve controversy over beating Rihanna or stealing some chick's phone: The cover of his fifth studio album has been released!

The singer is slated to release Fortune May 8, three days after his 23rd birthday.

Fortune is the follow up to Chris' Grammy-winning F.A.M.E., and will include his new song “Turn Up the Music.” It's unclear if it will also include the Rihanna remix.

Here's the cover, shot by photographers Gomillion and Leupold ...

The drought is FINALLY over, John Mayer Nation.

A few weeks back, Mayer teased fans with a 60-second snippet of "Shadow Days," the first piece of new music he recorded since undergoing surgery last fall.

Then, this week, he leaked "Shadow Days" on Cities97 Radio. It's not officially released yet (that comes March) but you can take a listen to the track below:

Columbia Records confirmed that his forthcoming album, the 12-track Born and Raised, will be released on May 22, with the above single due out March 6.

The singer-songwriter will also be hitting the road for an 18-date spring tour that kicks off April 9 in Bloomington, Ind., and wraps April 29 in New Orleans.

Mayer, who became known more for his douchebag antics, comments and Tweets than his formidable music career in recent years, is no longer on Twitter.

Maybe he'll let the music do the talking now.

Madonna renamed her song "Girls Gone Wild" to "Girl Gone Wild" (singular) after a legal threat from underage-drunk-spring-break-girl-sleaze kingpin Joe Francis.

Which she says didn't impact her decision, at all.

Still, the Girls Gone Wild mogul warned the star with a cease and desist letter not to sing her single of the same name at the halftime show. She didn't.

Then, the singer released the song off her upcoming MDNA album ... with the "s" not only removed from the title and lyrics, but the lyrics as well. Listen:

Francis tells E! that his legal team worked with Madonna's people on it, and that changing "Girls Gone Wild" to "Girl Gone Wild" was just the start.

"An immediate solution for them to thwart any injunctive relief," he said. "Clearly her label was trying to avoid legal action surrounding the song."

"This is still infringement as far as the law is concerned. We have been in touch with Madonna's representatives in an effort to resolve this issue."

According to Madonna's manager, that's total B.S.

Justin Bieber will release his very own new album in the near future. But, until then, the 17-year old sensation is having a blast chipping in with other artists.

Earlier this week, the Biebs appeared in a music video (along with Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale) for Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," and now he's teaming up with Far East Movement for "Live My Life," a single off that group's upcoming CD, "Dirty Bass."

Bieber pretty much just sings the book ("Live My Life!"), but it's still worth a listen. Check out the track now:

What do you get when you combine a bored, former A-list socialite with insightful tales of cell phone indiscretion and below-average techno beats?

A song and music video that must be heard/seen to be believed.

We present you with Paris Hilton's "Drunk Text" video - a cringe-worthy attempt to reenter the world of music/rap/spoken word ... who the heck knows, honestly.

The "song" (term used loosely) is a collaboration between Paris Hilton and production duo Manufactured Superstars. It leaked yesterday, and is not a joke apparently.

Watch Hilton wax poetic on the finer points of drunk texting and weigh in below:

What do you think of Paris' "Drunk Text"?

Chris Brown and Rihanna raised more than a few eyebrows this week with their remixes of her hit "Birthday Cake" and his "Turn Up the Music" this week.

Those two surprise collaborations have been followed by rumors that the singers may soon be collaborating in other ways, if you know what we mean.

We mean sexually.

If you're wondering who put the reunion in motion (musically, that is), The-Dream, who produced the "Birthday Cake" remix, would know: Rihanna.

  • Rihanna and Chris Brown Picture

"It was Rih's idea," he tells Billboard. "[Rihanna] is a friend of mine."

"It's like, 'You wanna do something? Then cool, let's do it.' I don't know how she got the logistics, how it happened; maybe she'll talk about it one day."

"I showed up at the studio, and it was like, 'All right, cool, let's finish this record,' which we probably should have finished the first time we did it."

According to The-Dream, he approached the project solely on its musical merits and ditched any of the controversial baggage that may come with it.

"For me, it's just music: two talented people doing two records together, that's what it was," he says. "It wasn't about an incident that happened."

He does acknowledge that the remixes' controversy, however ...

Paris Hilton is back! Or was ... if only for a few hours!

The ho-tel heiress' new single, "Drunk Text," was briefly leaked online today before being yanked off of YouTube within hours. What's it about, you ask?

Heck if we know, but the girl cannot sing. At all.

Not that she even tries, really. Hilton raps/speaks monotonously over the beat... and that's it. The music video was released today, but quickly pulled from YouTube with little explanation other than a violation of a copyright claim by Black Hole Recordings.

Still, the instant classic video was up long enough for some pics to be screen grabbed, and for numerous people who heard it to report on its epicness.

Some choice lyrics: "If you take the word 'sex' and mix it with 'texting,' it's called 'sexting'/When you add drunk sexting, the words just don't make sense."

Toooootally.

Even the late Whitney Houston was unable to oust Adele from the #1 spot on the Billboard album chart, as the UK singer's album set a new high water mark this week.

Adele's album, 21, fittingly took the top spot for a record 21st straight week. The previous title holder at 20 weeks? The Bodyguard soundtrack, by Whitney Houston.

21 is now the longest running No. 1 album by a woman.

Adele with a Trophy

Boosted by her six Grammy awards and performance comeback, Adele's 21 saw its best sales in 52 weeks on the U.S. chart, selling 730,000 copies just last week.

21 features hits "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You" and has now sold over 18 million copies worldwide since its release in Feb. 2011, Columbia Records said.

The 23-year-old singer/songwriter also saw a surge in sales for her debut album, 19, which sold 87,000 copies, while Houston has seen major posthumous sales.

Seven of Houston's albums re-entered the Billboard chart this week, led by Whitney: The Greatest Hits compilation at No. 2, selling an impressive 175,000 copies.

Her self-titled album sold 17,000 to take the 37th spot. Houston's "I Will Always Love You" single took the No. 2 spot in the Billboard Digital Songs Chart.
