Things get steamy between Madonna and her boy toy Jesus Luz in the singer’s new video for "Celebration," the title track off her upcoming greatest hits album. Madonna, who recently turned 51, manages to bend, twist, shake and gyrate to a dizzying effect before rolling up on Luz and having her way with him. Also, look for Madge’s daughter Lourdes, 12, at the 3:16 mark as she shows off her flexible moves on the dance floor. Hey, it runs in the family. Check out the video and let us know what you think.

We never fail to gush over Demi Lovato after seeing her on stage. And this time is no different. The Disney actress/singer-songwriter gave a pitch perfect performance of the title track from her new album, Here We Go Again, for The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien last night. We dare you to disagree after taking a look at the clip below. Be sure to tell us what you think!

We recently had the pleasure of speaking to Walter Perez, one of the young stars of the highly anticipated adaptation of Fame, the 1980 Oscar-winning movie about artists at an NYC performing arts high school. Perez, 26, is a muscular boxer from the Los Angeles neighborhood Southgate who comes off as impossibly humble. He flashed his infectious smile and signature dimples as he talked about his first big studio movie, why he hopes to work with Jay Hernandez later this year and what he looks for in a woman.

This one is definitely going to be tearjerker! In the trailer for the film Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire, we get a glimpse at the perfomances that had everyone buzzing at last year's Sundance Film Festival.

Shakira took a break from recording her new album to toast Barack Obama all weekend long. Just a few hours before gracing the Latino Inaugural Gala in a gorgeous green dress, the singer donned liquid latex pants at the Lincoln Memorial for the President-Elect's "We Are One" Inauguration Concert.

Salma Hayek's interview with David Letterman last night had several must-see moments. (Watch them in the video below). The late-night host asked the actress all about the state of her relationship with on-and-off fiancée, Francois Henri-Pinault--"Who is this guy? Do I know him?" he says, confused--and she danced all around the issue. Brilliantly, we might add!

Jim Jones has come a long way. The boricua-Aruban rapper who once played sidekick to Cam'ron (remember him?) has since become one of the most popular MCs in the game, capitalizing heavily on the success of his 2006 jock jam/club banger/street anthem, "We Fly High." Now, as Jones continues to evolve into the total artist and MC package, he's doing what some would consider to be much braver than recording an album inspired by Auto-Tune (We're looking at you, Kanye!).
