tonights_the_night_art

Everyone knows that having sex for the first time is pretty much the most important moment of your life. Hahaha, jkkk y’all. It’s usually pretty awkward and hilarious and (occasionally) humiliating. Or so we’ve heard. But that hasn’t stopped it the being romanticized in tons of classic songs over the years! Usually in a way that thoroughly creeps us out…From Rod Stewart to AC/DC, Lyfe Jennings and the great Vanessa Carlton, you’ll never forget THESE musical first times.

Who’s Last: Roger Daltrey On New Music, Final Tours, And 50 Years Of The Who

roger_daltrey_50th_main

Roger Daltrey is definitely busier than you. Despite having just turned 70, the legendary frontman of The Who is still ambitious, still rebellious, and still the King of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Scream. This April marks 50 years since Keith Moon (Patent British Exploding Drummer) joined forces with the band, completing the lineup that made them unstoppable. Even though the tragic deaths of Moon and thundering bassist John Entwistle have reduced the original four to two, Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend are still out on the road, defending their title of Rock’s Best (and loudest) Live Act -until now.

Case in point, ’80s film icon John Hughes. VH1 News caught up with Foster The People, The 1975 and Jack Antonoff at SXSW recently, and they all had some serious love for the legendary director of beloved classics like The Breakfast Club, Pretty In Pink, Home Alone and so many more.

Shillin’ Out: 15 Huge Musicians We Can’t Believe Sang Commercial Jingles

commercials_main_1

Companies are always approaching rock stars to lend street cred and coolness to their products. It’s an uneasy alliance, but it does mean serious exposure…and a serious paycheck. Hey, those private jets aren’t going to pay for themselves! Sometimes it’s a passive partnership, with the musicians handing over their classic songs for use in television commercials. But other times the star plays a more active role -singing a jingle, or even penning a whole new song!

Recently, Frank Ocean very nearly became the spokes-singer for Chipotle, but pulled out of the deal before he recorded the tune. Honestly, we had kind of a hard time imagining the rapper shilling for a burrito chain (although we love the guac, don’t get us wrong). Although we guess it wouldn’t have been any weirder than these 15 OTHER megastars who turned jingle-singers…

How Does Miley Cyrus’ New Lip Tattoo Measure Up To These Other Celebs With Insane Ink?

miley_ink_art

We’ve had Miley Cyrus on the brain lately, and we’re pretty sure that’s been her plan all along. The 21-year-old singer has shocked and delighted (usually both) fans with her envelope-pushing racy style and outrageous onstage antics during her Bangerz concert tour. We were going to try to give Ms. Cyrus a rest for a while, but we couldn’t ignore the bold new body art she showed off this weekend on Instagram. Damn it, Miley…we just can’t quit you!
