In light of his third "Pop Up" compilation, Perez Hilton rendezvoused with fans and pop enthusiasts at Webster Hall for a performance by Betty Who, and surprise guests, Savoir Adore and Nina Sky. The event began promptly as guests mingled with a Miley Cyrus printed body-suit clad Perez and a bubbly Betty Who. Delicious Cupcakes were up for grabs and "DNA" Monster headphones were on display. Savoir Adore filled The Marlin Room with a whimsical & rhythmic setlist followed by an energetic DJ set by Nina Sky. Dynamic rising pop star, Betty Who, ended the night with two new songs, "High Society", "Right Here" and the hit single "Somebody loves you."

The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.
With foreign artists topping music charts in all genres, it’s no surprise that this innovative Swedish pair has already had multiple singles claim wild success on dance charts, as well as the Top 40. “I Love It’, the song Icona Pop is most well known for, has been released as a single as well as on every album and EP the girls have released so far; most likely because no one can get enough of it. The rest of the songs on This Is... Icona Pop share the same positive, jump-worthy feel as “I Love It,” but still manage to show their diversity and musical ability. Songs on the album such as “Girlfriend” and the insanely catchy “All Night” are sure to follow in the chart-topping footsteps of “I Love It”.

The first act at the main stage was Demetrius who laid down his usual dutch house sounds. The young star was soon joined on stage by surprise superstar producer, guest, and father, Timbaland. Although we enjoyed the surprise visit, MC shout outs don’t mesh well with the natural flow of electronic music and by the end of his blabber we were ready for more tunes.
Let's hear it for the girls! Sassy electropop DJ duo, Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo are Icona Pop. They're basically taking over the world one remix at a time with their hit single "I Love It."
Formed in 2010, these Swedish sweethearts have made quite some noise starting with their first single "Manners."

We rounded up a mix of twelve songs that are worthy of so much play time it's ri-dic-u-lous.
Azealia Banks - Jumanji
Prepping for the release of her debut album 1991, Banks released another track this week, laying to rest any doubts of her abilities. With a killer beat by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook, the track is as fresh as it is familiar. Banks also lays it down, and with authority. The only thing that can make this track any better is the music video.
Icona Pop - I Love It
Hailing from Stockholm, this electro-pop duo has come out with some fun. A lot of fun. With a huge, in your face electro sound and vocals to stomp along with/to, Icona Pop may have come out with a "song of the pre-summer" with this one...
