Viva Las Vegas?

He’s sexy, he’s smart (…went to Harvard!) and he makes music that will make you get on your feet and dance. Meet BAKER. The hottest new face in the world of Electro Pop music. Micah Jesse caught up with Baker:
Describe to me when you first knew you wanted to make music. What was it about making music and/or performing that attracted you?
When I was 8 years old at summer camp, it was my counselor’s idea for all of us to perform “Stand By Me” for the other groups. I remember the counselor loved my voice so much she put the microphone right in front of me, so even though everyone was singing, the crowd could only hear me. And I think on the surface, I enjoyed the attention (I still do) but really it was more about communication. If someone has a voice of their own – whether that means singing or public speaking or writing, they should develop it and share it.
- …to the “electro pop” genre specifically?
That’s the style that fit my writing and my voice the best; it was a pretty clear choice right from the start.
Who do you make music for? Who is your target audience?
I don’t have one; I’ve been amazed by how many different people of all ages and places and walks of life that have discovered my music, so I hope it only continues to expand.

Adam Lambert took 26% of the votes for sexiest male, beating out Maroon 5′s Adam Levine into second place with 12%, while Justin Bieber placed third with 10%.
What do you guys think!? Do you agree with the final vote?
Singer Britney Spears and High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale were both spotted wearing this Brian Lichtenberg coral scuba dress. Spears was seen in the dress while filming The X Factor on May 24, and Tisdale wore it to the opening of Mizumi Restaurant in Las Vegas on Thursday. Although they share similar hair styles, the blonde bombshells paired the dress with very different accessories . Spears choose classic black pumps while Tisdale went with nude pumps and a handbag.
If you love the dress as much as we do, you can get it at shopbrianlichtenberg.com.
Obviously we think they both look great, but who do YOU think wore it best?!
Demi Lovato has had a whirlwind year!
The pop singer, who famously went to rehab earlier this year, appears happy and vibrant in a bright yellow cut-out dress on the cover of the July issue of Cosmopolitan magazine (hits newsstands Tuesday, June 5th!)
The 19-year-old pop singer, who recently announced she would be joining “The X-Factor” as a judge (joining Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid) talked to the mag about her painful past and amazing recovery.
On being diagnosed with bipolar disorder: “I felt relieved when I found out. Like I’m not completely crazy; there’s a medical reason for all of it.” She continues: “It’s a daily thing; you don’t get time off from it. And if I feel myself slipping back into old patterns, I have to ask others for help, which is hard for me to learn, because I really like doing everything on my own.”
On the direction she’d like her personal life to go in: “I want to be married with kids in 10 years.”
On her dating qualifications: “I don’t have many deal breakers. I’ve done so much in my life, it doesn’t feel right to judge other people. Oh, I know one quality I won’t tolerate. I would never be with a guy who is controlling.”
