CrazySexyCool, the smash album from iconic trio TLC, recently reached its 20th anniversary—so obviously this calls for a celebration. The group changed pop and R&B history because of the record, featuring unforgettable hits like “Creep” and “Waterfalls.” Keke Palmer, who played Rozanda ‘Chili’ Thomas in the VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, explains the impact TLC had on her life and why the group was unlike any other.
Looks like we may have to wait even longer for Tha Carter V, and Lil Wanye is NOT happy about it. The rapper unleashed a multi-Tweet tirade on social media yesterday accusing Cash Money Records of refusing to release the long-awaited album—and it got even uglier from there. He called himself a “prisoner” and says that he wants off the label, which has been his home for nearly two decades.

News Flash: Axl Rose is still alive! And our source is pretty legit— it’s Axl himself. The Guns N’ Roses frontman took to Twitter last night to respond to a death hoax that was running wild on the internet. Being presumed dead can be hard on a man’s swag, but Axl’s response was pretty damn funny.
The Art Basel festival celebrates some of the most cutting edge work in art, design, and performance— so it kind of makes sense that Miley Cyrus showed up with the butt that made twerking a global phenomenon. Serving as a guest singer last night at Art Basel’s Miami Beach show, Miley made sure to Instagram her booty and boob-filled wardrobe topped off with a super sparkly wig.
With well over 100 million records sold worldwide, countless unforgettable concerts performed, and a catalog full of some of the greatest songs in hard rock history, few bands can boast of the track record AC/DC has had since forming in 1973. The excellence of their recorded output is the model of consistency itself, from their 1975 debut album, up to their latest, Rock or Bust, which came out last week. Powered by the incendiary guitar work of Angus Young and the cord-shredding vocals of singer Brian Johnson – who took over for Bon Scott after his death in 1980 – the new album is a testament to the band’s songwriting skills and inability to not rock. Though the band recently announced the retirement of founding member Malcolm Young due to health problems, and the drummer’s chair is currently in question after the legal woes of Phil Rudd, the band is still determined to carry on and give fan’s what they want with all they’ve got. Young and Johnson sat down with VH1 to discuss the new album, somewhat-new rhythm guitarist Stevie Young and how they’ve kept it up for 40 years in the rough and tumble world of high voltage rock n’ roll.

Let’s be real with ourselves for a minute— “Bang Bang” is probably the greatest pop tracks of the year (if not of all time).
