The Most Shameless Post-Death Exploitations Of Musicians

explotations_art

By Jake Paine

Music fans know the old adage: “death sells.” Sadly, just as in film, literature, and the visual arts, when musicians leave us, their albums and merchandise tend to leave the stores, selling faster than ever before. With children, record labels, band-mates, spouses and downright strangers as culprits, here are some especially unique, rather shameless exploitations of rockers like Kurt Cobain, rappers like Biggie and Tupac, divas like Whitney Houston, and more.

#MadonnaSays

-siiiiiiiighs-

Here we are again….. So much has transpired over the past few weeks and if you ask me, none of it is quite worthy of my attention; but I’m doing it for you, my fans. Oh, before I forget I want to thank you all for your questions. I couldn’t possibly answer all of them…so why would you send me so many? As I said in one of my songs, “Time goes by, so slowly” but my watch is 10 minutes ahead and I’m late for a studio session with Diplo.

Remember, send me all your video questions via Instagram and YouTube with the hashtag #MadonnaDearest…..and you’re still sitting there reading this post because…..?

Brandy or Ray J: Who’s The Better Actor?

brandy_ray_j_faceoff_art

Brandy or Ray J? It’s a question for the ages. On paper, the answer to this question may be obvious when factoring in talent, overall charm, and taking a look at both of their resumes – Brandy, duh! – but that’s only until you look further. And by look further, I mean, “my boyfriend is out of town and I’ve binge watched every episode of Happy Endings, so I need to do something else to pass the time.” I kid, I kid. The truth of the matter is that I simply love comparing celebrity siblings.

By Chris Carpenter

Throwback R&B Couples That We Wish Stayed Together

throwback_rb_couples

-By Seher Sikandar

With the revolving door of celebrity relationships, it can be difficult to take anything seriously sometimes.  Yet a handful of R&B artist couples inspired love in the masses.  Witnessed by the world, these pairs entered our mushy little hearts, too.  And when they split, our universe crumbled and our meanings of life and love were questioned.  Why?  WHY!  We don’t know why, but what we do know is who need to get their lives together and get back together. Come on Usher and Chili —don’t leave us this way!

“Madonna” Talks Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake

By “Madonna”

You already know who it is…Madonna….MDNA…Queen….do we have to go over that again? I didn’t think so. Now that I’ve refreshed your neurons and awoken the spiders that you forgot to remove from your brain since Halloween, get into the groove for episode two of my show #MadonnaDearest. Bethenny, Elton John, Biebs, and Nick Jonas all conspired to entertain in different ways this past week. Subjects in my royal court? Not. I would get into it in writing, but then you wouldn’t watch my show and then we would have a problem. See what I mean? You scratch my back and I’ll let someone else scratch yours? Deal?

Remember, send me all your video questions via Instagram and YouTube with the hashtag #MadonnaDearest and I MAY respond to them…..Keyword: MAY. I’m late for my seaweed wrap. Madonna, OUT! 

Watch Madonna Dearest every Tuesday at 11 am.

-By Olga Encarnacion

We all have that one album that we turn to when we need guidance or reassurance that life isn’t a mess. We all evolve and change as we discover who we are as we get older and just like the bands we love, we struggle to find our words and personas. With bands and artists, sometimes that means a line up change, firing their manager, doing a questionable video but a lot of the time, it means trying something completely different. Here are a few bands that stepped out of their comfort zone and put on their dancing shoes.
