Ashanti is no longer hip-hop and R&B’s princess, but that’s not stopping her from living like one. You may have thought the singer peaked circa Ja Rule era, but you were wrong. Very wrong.

I always thought Justin Bieber was entitled and arrogant. But there’s clearly more going on below the surface. Or, in this case, the belt.
We know Jessie James Decker loves pumpkin pie and when it’s glistening outside. But did you know what the singer’s favorite Christmas tunes were before her latest hit “Baby! It’s Christmas” slayed the holiday charts? We got Jessie to dish on her Top 5 holiday songs of all time. Don’t worry, Mariah Carey‘s classic hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” is included. Obviously.
2014 was one wild ride for Jennifer Lopez. The superstar proved 45 never looked so good, and continued to mesmerize us with her slammin’ bod and killer booty. A momma on a mission, she added hits like “Booty” and “First Love” to ever-expanding music repertoire and released her heartfelt memoir True Love. Regardless of the highs, lows and as we can imagine, ridiculously packed schedule, we could always count on J.Lo to look her absolute best and wow us with her glow.
It’s no doubt that the Victoria’s Secret Angels are completely mesmerizing at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Seriously, how can legs actually be that long? But there are rare occurrences that the stellar and sometimes hilarious performance easily distract us from thinking about what these girls eat all day. Like the time when Rihanna made pearl-rimmed sunglasses cooler than angel wings. Or when Adam Levine gave a ginormous public eff-you to former on-again-off-again girlfriend and current wife Behati Prinsloo. With this year’s headliners, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, and Ed Sheeran, we know there are more of these moments to come.
CrazySexyCool, the smash album from iconic trio TLC, recently reached its 20th anniversary—so obviously this calls for a celebration. The group changed pop and R&B history because of the record, featuring unforgettable hits like “Creep” and “Waterfalls.” Keke Palmer, who played Rozanda ‘Chili’ Thomas in the VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, explains the impact TLC had on her life and why the group was unlike any other.
Rihanna has built her brand from being a goddamn freak…in the best way. Instagram sure as hell can’t tame her and neither can her own shirts. But bad gal RiRi wasn’t always bad. We were first introduced to the Barbados-born singer when she was a 17-year-old with wide eyes and long, bouncy hair, dancing to innocent songs like “If It’s Lovin’ That You Want.” Since, she’s chopped the locks and has become much more fond of sexual innuendos and black leather, releasing albums like Unapologetic and Rated R. Take a look at the evolution of sex references in Rihanna’s songs, and you’ll see that slowly but surely, she was bound to release NSFW tracks and unleash the inner S&M Queen that she is.
While we continue to mourn the loss of buying CDs, we remember how movie soundtracks made this event extra special. Soundtracks bring these stories to life. And it helps being able to visualize the players (Hi Natalie Portman and Zach Braff). Even though we may not be buying or listening to soundtracks in their entirety these days, damn you, iTunes, there are still instances when tracks on movie soundtracks get more hype than the films themselves.
His voice is immaculate, he’s humble and has a vulnerability that’s just damn precious. It’s no secret why we worship Sam Smith. During last night’s You Oughta Know Concert, we all caught ourselves getting teary-eyed watching him in performances that were nothing short of perfection. Did we mention he met the Queen of Funk Chaka Khan and even took the well-deserving title of You Oughta Know Artist of the Year? Lucky for you, we documented all of the magic.
With the drop of his self-titled solo album, sexed up image and racy new “Jealous” remix, we’ve been on Nick Jonas sensory overload lately. Which, don’t get us wrong, is a beautiful thing. He’s been under the radar since The Jonas Brothers split last year, but reemerged this summer as a whole new, chiseled he-man. And he knew exactly what he was doing. Over the past few months, the 22-year-old has shredded his shell of innocence, proving to the world that his Disney days are far behind him. From hitting the small screen as an oiled-up fighter on DirecTV’s Kingdom, to dropping NSFW music weekly, it’s hard to keep track of the sexiness. Let’s summarize who the new Nick Jonas is while we celebrate this amazing occurrence.
