Mother’s Day is Sunday! If you’re like me, you’re a big jerk who’s taken the painful hours of labor that brought you into this world for granted, so you’re running around getting a last minute card together that won’t arrive until Monday. So catch your breath, and while you do, vote to tell us if 2Pac‘s or Boyz II Men‘s enviable heart-wrenching tribute to moms make you vow to do something more thoughtful (and on time) next year.

Chris Brown and Rihanna are, once again, broken up. Only time will tell if they will get back together again, but after checking out Chris Brown’s Twitter feed this afternoon, chances are that potential reunion won’t be happening anytime soon.
Mariah Carey sexes it up in her new music video with Miguel for the song “#Beautiful,” the lead single from her first new album in four years. The singer has always made incredibly sexy videos but considering that she gave birth to twins just two years ago, she’s looking her best in years. Clearly, she agrees. It’s on full display. We dutifully made GIFs of her sexiest moments from the video.
Mariah Carey and Miguel dropped their new single, “#Beautiful,” on Monday, and it quickly rose to the top of the iTunes Singles Chart (it’s currently sitting in the #6 position). Response to this song has been incredibly positive, even if The Lambily seems to be aching for a bit more Mimi on the track. Either way, these two wasted no time in dropping a video for the song, which proves once and for all (as if there were any doubters out there!) that Mariah’s still one of the hottest chicks in the game.
They say that there’s a fine line between genius and insanity, which might explain why some of our all-time favorite musicians have a tendency to go off the rails every now and then.

Sometimes it’s just a momentary lapse of reason (looking at you, Mariah Careyand Kanye West), sometimes it’s wayyyy too many drugs (love you, James Brown), and other times it’s just wayyyy too many yes-men.
When thrash titans Metallica took the field at San Francisco’s AT&T Park to play “The Star Spangled Banner” last week, they were but the latest in a long line of high energy decibel dealers putting their rough stamp on our hallowed National Anthem. Ever since Jimi Hendrix serenaded the Woodstock faithful that bleary August morning in 1969 with his electric-fried version of “The Star Spangled Banner,” rockers have been figuring out daring different ways to rock Francis Scott Key’s composition in instrumental form. We now present to you the 10 Most Rocking Versions of The National Anthem. Give us your feedback on vote on where you think they rank and remember to vote early and vote often.
One of the perks of having Gin Wigmore as VH1′s You Oughta Know artist this month is being able to stalk our favorite Kiwi soul siren without being creepy. So, earlier last month we tracked Gin’s every move as she made the rounds across the U.S. from California where she tore up the Live in the Vineyard stage to New York promoting the U.S. release of her sophomore album Gravel & Wine.
