Most of us were overjoyed to wake up last Friday to discover that a BRAND NEW SURPRISE BEYONCE ALBUM was ours for the downloading. It was an unexpected treat, but apparently Rihanna was less-thrilled with Beyonce‘s holiday gift to her legions of fans. In fact, there are rumors that she’s pretty pissed!
Move over, “Someone Like You” because there’s a new heart-wrenchingly gorgeous breakup song to make us sob into our morning Cinnamon Toast Crunch (don’t judge). The delicate beauty of indie duo A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” is enough to make us cry, but the incredible success story behind this little-song-that-could is enough to cheer us right back up again.
Our favorite pop stars are one part singer, one part dancer, and one part style chameleon! The best in the biz are never afraid to mix it up a little bit and change their look in exciting new ways. Sometimes these changes pay of huge, leading to massive image improvements. And other times…well, the word “mistake” comes to mind.
There’s such a fine line between killin’ it and dying onstage, and sometimes even the pros end up on the bad side. 2013 was a year for some awesome concerts, but it also gave some truly epic performance fails! Head on down to the gallery below and check out 10 shows that had us talking…and not in the good way.
It’s always difficult when beloved musicians pass away before their time, but it’s even more tragic when they’re taken from us with a senseless act of violence. This time of year is a particularly harsh reminder of the many artists who have been cut down in their prime, before they were able to complete their work for the world. Last Sunday marked 33 years since peace icon John Lennon was shot dead in front of his New York City apartment building, and 9 years since Pantera shredder Dimebag Darrell was gunned down in mid-performance. As if that’s not sad enough, today is the 49th anniversary of soul legend Sam Cooke’s mysterious death in a Los Angeles motel.
Our biggest personal nightmare is standing naked onstage in front of a crowd of people. But it looks like these celebs don’t share that fear, because they do it night after night! Sure, they might not be “naked,” but they’re definitely lacking the usual amount of clothing. The fact that they can still perform is pretty amazing! These ladies are definitely pros…
Love makes sweet music! Many musicians can’t resist bringing their boos into the vocal booth for some sultry duets. Most recently we heard from John Mayer and Katy Perryon “Who You Love” (A.K.A. Russell Brand‘s least favorite song). Earlier this year Ciara heralded her couple-dom with Future with “Where You Go,” and although she doesn’t actually sing a note on the track (thank god), Kanye Westdid tap Kim Kardashian to appear in his video for “Bound2” a few weeks back. In honor of all the coupling going on in the music biz, we’ve decided to take a look back at the most notable real-life couple collaborations in music!
2013 was a big year for getting inked, because it seems like rock stars of every stripe stopped by the tattoo parlor for some brand new body art. Perhaps they were inspired by our very own Black Ink Crew? You never know…
In the immortal words of that viral video from a few years ago, “OMG, shoes!” We here at VH1 spend a lot of time talk about celebrity clothes (or lack thereof), but we never seem to give enough love to famous footwear. Well, that’s about to change right now as we take a look back at the coolest rock star shoes of 2013!
Tommy Lee is not your average rock and roller. Sure he’s married models and starlets, earned enough gold records to fill a vault, preserved his x-rated exploits for posterity, and partied harder than Keith Richards, Charlie Sheen and all of Guns N’ Rosescombined (probably). But now the Motley Crue drummer is exploring a new and different way to get crowds on their feet: DJing! Alongside his turntable teammate DJ Aero, these mix masters are taking on nightclubs across the country as Electro Mayhem. Hide your daughters and hide your eardrums, because it’s about to get funky and loud!
