If you haven’t heard of Cher Lloyd yet, hold on to your seats because she’s about to take the U.S. by storm. She got her start on “The X Factor” U.K. and is currently promoting her single “Want U Back” (which is sitting pretty at #13 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart) in the States.
“I feel like ‘Want U Back’ explains me,’ she told MTV News when visiting nearly 1,000 fans (or, as she likes to call them, “Bratz”) at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, New York. “I feel like it has a lot of attitude but in a good way, it’s cheeky, I’m quite cheeky and it’s young and it’s fun.”

On Wednesday (August 8), a group of us from the MTV News crew traveled out to Jones Beach on Long Island to meet up with Big Time Rush. The guys gave us an exclusive tour of the venue before their concert that night, and Logan, James, Kendall and Carlos couldn’t have been more fun. We got a backstage look, hung out a little bit in their dressing room … and the foursome just may have stolen a BTR T-shirt for me!
Big Time Rush then brought me onstage (pre-show), where they officially made me an honorary member of the group. But they may have had to rethink that decision after they tried to teach me some dance moves. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty!
Be sure to check out our full behind-the-scenes tour coverage with Big Time Rush next week on MTVNews.com!
Lady Gaga is touring the world on her “Born This Way Ball” tour, but she’s already thinking about what’s next. Hard at work on her hotly anticipated new album, Gaga tweeted a link to her littlemonsters.com social networking website with the caption “new ink new album.” At the link, fans were greeted by a pic of the glamorous singer’s new tattoo.
Situated on her right arm, the ink reads “ARTPOP” in simple black ink. Check it out:
Given the message in her tweet, some are speculating that the tattoo may have something to do with the title of her new album. Gaga has not revealed the name of the set, though she has performed a new song on her “BTW Ball” that may appear on the album and has been talking up the new record during her concerts.
“Let’s just say I feel, I feel that when I wrote Born This Way, I demonstrated a sense of maturity. And I feel that, on the next album, there’s a lack of maturity, it’s a tremendous lack of maturity or sense of responsibility,” Gaga told concertgoers in Perth, Australia.
She also announced that she will unveil the album title in September. She’s had the name picked out for a while, as she revealed to MTV News in December. Watch:

Saturday wasn’t just about Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex at Tomorrowland Festival. Porter Robinson smashed Paul van Dyk’s stage.
Pendulum and Goldie brought the hard bass to Star Warz’ frenzy. And not enough can be said of Laidback Luke’s staggering cast at Super You & Me – Zedd, Sunnery & Ryan, Swanky Tunes and Congorock were among the performers. Oh, and Luke, Chuckie and Martin Solveig did a joint set … as Superman, Spiderman and Batman, which was rather awesome.
Some of our favorite people at the fest used TL to road-test new material – a particular treat for the fans. Our buddy Hardwell, dropped one of the biggest bombs of the weekend, a bashing, booming remix of “Spaceman” by Headhunterz (also a performer at Q Dance Stage Saturday). Also, brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and sister’s Liv & Mim Nervo took time out to list off a few songs you’re going to want to remember! Check out the video below.
“We have a special version of the Tomorrowland anthem, and a couple of really cool collaborations,” Dimitri revealed before his set at Main Stage. “We have one with Laidback Luke. One with Moguai. One with Wolfpack. Another one with Yves V. And one with Coone and Lil Jon. We finally got the vocal version ready!”
Nervo fans have much to look forward to from Liv & Mim.
“We ended our set with ‘Reason,’” Mim said. “We of course played our current single, ‘You’re Gonna Love Again.’ We played, ‘Army,’ which is coming out soon.”
“It will come out!” Liv exclaimed regarding the much-awaited song.
“It’s all about the scheduling I’m told,” Mim said.
