BØRNS released his new album Blue Madonna today, and I absolutely love it.
It’s got that smooth, laid-back grooviness I’ve come to really enjoy about his music. The album features Lana del Rey on “God Save Our Young Blood” and the title track “Blue Madonna.”
My faves on the album are “Sweet Dreams”, “Iceberg”, “Second Night of Summer”, and “Tension (Interlude)”, the latter being my number one favorite track on Blue Madonna.
In celebration of Blue Madonna, I’ve decided to feature this fun piece of fan art of BØRNS that I found on Tumblr by Erin Young. It’s an oil on canvas painting that depicts the singer with pink hair wearing a floral top and sunglasses that suit him perfectly.

Early this Friday morning, Britney Spears tweeted a photo of herself surrounded by 16 men on the set of the upcoming music video for her new single “Make Me (Oooh)” featuring G-Eazy.
A few hours later, E! reported that the music video will most likely be out in July, and there’s also a new Britney album on the way for fall 2016.
Stop. Wait. I haven’t even listened to Britney Jean yet! (I know, I know. Shame on me. What have you been doing for the last 3 years, Dana?!)
In celebration of this phenomenal news, I’ve decided to feature this amazing fan art of Britney by Natalie Cunial (you might remember her from Big Brother 9). I found it in a Pinterest board filled with Britney Spears fan art, and this painting stood out to me the most because of its warm color palette.

Do you know that “Dangerous Woman”? The “Greedy” one that makes “Bad Decisions”?
Well her album came out today. (Now I guess you can tell which tracks from Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman are my faves!)
I’ve been waiting for today since the beginning of spring because I was so impressed with the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Let Me Love You.”
Dangerous Woman is for sure going on my list of favorite albums at the end of the year. Today is my birthday, too (YAY 22!) and this is a super awesome gift from the music world.
Maybe it’s because I still associate Ariana Grande with Sam and Cat but it’s still for me to consider her dangerous. She seems so sweet in real life too!
In honor of the release of Dangerous Woman, I’ve selected this amazing fan art by Hiago Silva I found on Instagram featuring Ariana with her latex bunny headgear. It’s inspired by the new album’s cover, and it’s pretty much a complete replica of it, which I love.

The hype about Beyoncé’s Lemonade is still going strong, so today’s Fan Art Fridays is a piece of fan art I found on Instagram inspired by the visual album that was released on HBO over the weekend.
Created by beavisualartist, the art depicts Queen Bey in a yellow dress with a bat in hand from the scenes in the visual album where she’s smashing a car on the street with a bat.
That must have been fun to film.
The words “Hot Sauce” on the fan art I assume are a reference to the lyrics in her song “Formation.” Well now we’ve got a whole new album to make memes out of.
I absolutely love how lovely the dress was drawn. Beyoncé looks gorgeous in yellow, and beavisualartist found the perfect shade of yellow to color it!
Here are some in-depth articles on Lemonade. You can view the original fan art here and watch the trailer for the visual album below.
I was listening to Coldplay’s new album A Head Full of Dreams on Spotify today and I got really excited when I saw that Tove Lo is featured on their song “Fun.” She brings an interesting vibe to the album with her alt-pop vocals and multi-dimensional personality.
Her voice blends very well on the ballady track as a backup vocal to Chris Martin. “Fun” is one of my favorites on the album, along with “Army of One” and “Adventure Of A Lifetime.”
The song inspired me to look around for some cool fan art of Tove Lo, and I came across this cartoon portrait by Lily-the-Animator on Deviant Art. You gotta love her somber-looking, droopy, googly blue eyes!

As many of you may have already heard, Taylor Swift went cray this week when she found out Ryan Adams is covering 1989.
I’m pretty damn sure she was doing exactly what the GIF is playing right now.

I just found out yesterday that Coldplay will be releasing their new album A Head Full of Dreams by the end of 2015!
According to Contact Music, the album is going to be way less somber than Ghost Stories. The release date still has yet to be confirmed, but we do know that the songs on the album will have a more positive, upbeat vibe.
I’m really excited to hear A Head Full of Dreams. I wasn’t too pleased with Ghost Stories, so I’m hoping that they’ve gone back to writing songs like “Viva La Vida,” and “Don’t Let It Break Your Heart.”
To celebrate the good news, I decided to showcase this drawing of the band with the word “VIVA” in the backdrop.
