This year, Halloween fell on a weekend Halloween fell on a Thursday, which means that our famous friends have been sporting costumes for nearly a week now. During that time, we here at VH1 Music have been keeping our eyes on what our favorite musicians—names like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Adam Lambert, Demi Lovato & more—were dressing up as. We’ve collected some of the most memorable looks—be they spooky, sexy, or straight up scary!—in the gallery above and now we’re turning it over to you, the fans. Which musician WON Halloween 2013? Vote in our poll below!
The new film 12 Years A Slave just opened in limited release and is already among the frontrunners for the 2014 Academy Awards. The powerful tale about America’s dark history with slavery wowed at film festivals this fall, and John Legend agrees. “It’s one of the best films I’ve ever seen,” he told VH1 News recently, who was inspired to write the score for the movie after seeing an early version of it.
Innuendo is for squares! Sure, lots of songs hide behind metaphors when it comes to sex—they want their CAKE CAKE CAKE and they want to eat it, too!—but we have to give props to the following 20 artists who went ahead and recorded themselves she (and he!) bopping themselves in the recording booth and put it out on record. We’d like to salute the following aural pioneers for being bold enough to push the envelope—not to mention our buttons—and get a bit freaky deaky in the stu.
One of the most dynamic new rock bands on the face of the Earth is HAIM, who just so happens to also be VH1’s current You Oughta Know artist. The band is made up of three sisters—Alana (bass + vox), Danielle (lead vox + guitar), and Este (keys + guitar + vox)—who have been making music together over their entire lives. Being sisters and bandmates means that the three members of HAIM spend a ton of time together, which is why we decided to play a round of Sibling Superlatives with them when they popped by VH1 headquarters recently. In this installment, we’ll find out which member of HAIM is the biggest flirt, who’s the most athletic, and which one has the most talent. Enjoy!
You gotta hand it to The Goo Goo Dolls. If you were to take a time machine back to the year 1992 and predict an alternative rock act that would still be commercially viable 20 years from now, few would’ve selected Johnny Rzeznik and Robby Takac. Yet here we are in the fall of 2013 and the Goos are still going strong.
The premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1 last night got us thinking about what a musical hotbed the city of Atlanta is. As we learned, they don’t call it “Hot-Lanta” for nothing! So we decided to do a little bit of research to determine who, along with TLC, are the biggest musical artists to emerge from the A.T.L.
HAIM is VH1’s You Oughta Know artist for the month of October, and the trio of Californian sisters will also be part of the lineup of the first ever You Oughta Know In Concert special that airs on VH1 next month. We got to spend some QT with Este, Danielle and Alana last month when they dropped by VH1 headquarters for a round of Sibling Superlatives, in which we learned which which of the Haim sisters is least likely to put up with bullsh*t, who’s the most likely to be up until 4am, and who is the most competitive of the bunch. (Hint: One of them “left their soul on that soccer field” … but WHO?!?)
