Nicki Minaj is as famous for her ability to spit incredible rhymes as she is for the scandalous, sexy and outrageous outfits she wears. It seems that every time Ms. Minaj walks out the door, takes the stage or snaps a selfie on Instagram, she’s making a shocking fashion statement. And we can’t get enough of her lascivious looks!
Let’s get it straight: 2013 was a great year for new music. Even as the year opened with music critics lamenting the auto-tuned state of pop music and the slow death of the album as an art form, new and creative acts emerged from seemingly nowhere to revitalize the charts (and established acts reinvented themselves as musical vanguards).
2013 will be remembered as the year when a 16-year-old girl conquered the world from New Zealand, three rocking sisters from California lived up to their hype and a viral video from Sweden couldn’t get out of our heads. Oh, and it will also be remembered as the year of “new Miley.”
2013 will go down in history as the Year of Miley Cyrus! Miley spearheaded more than a “Movement” this year; she sparked a pop culture revolution. Whether she was shocking us on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards, pushing the envelope with Terry Richardson, or getting us to twerk all night in the music video for “We Can’t Stop,” one thing’s for sure: we never stopped talking about Miley.
The newest class of inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has been announced. This year’s group includes grunge rockers Nirvana, the glam rock band KISS, smooth pop duo Hall and Oates, former Genesis frontman Peter Gabriel, songbird Linda Ronstadt and folk hero Cat Stevens (aka Yusuf Islam).
Each of the acts is undoubtedly an influential music legend, but this list is making us wonder how Rock and Roll do you have to be to get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
What haunts Eminem? According to the new music video for “The Monster,” Em is most afraid of himself. The music video starts with Eminem going through a therapy session with Rihanna dressed as his sexy shrink and follows the hip hop superstar as he goes through his most iconic moments–and tries to get away from them?
Kings of Leon returned to the Saturday Night Live stage last night with host John Goodman. The Nashville-based rock band kept their performances of “Temple” and “Wait For Me” surprisingly low key. While most recent musical guests have sought to dazzle or provoke with their performances (think Lady Gaga and R. Kelly‘s sex push ups), the guys of Kings of Leon kept it simple and let their music make the statement.
