8 Artists Who Have Used The Stage As Their Personal Toilet

stage_toilet_1

Nature — if you catch our drift — has a habit of calling at the most inopportune times, and these artists know about that firsthand. Believe or not, more than a handful of your favorite musicians have felt the urge to — erm —  relieve themselves mid-performance. But sadly, concert stages typically aren’t equipped with toilets, so these folks had to soil themselves. In front of an audience. Yep —  happy Tuesday! (Warning: Some videos NSFW)

7 Times We Couldn’t Understand What The Hell Ariana Grande Was Saying

103.5 KTU's KTUphoria 2014 - Show

By Christopher Rosa 

Ariana Grande fans, rejoice— the pint-sized pop star’s sophomore album My Everything is out this week. (Well…erm, it technically leaked last week, but we’re sure no one downloaded it then, right? That would be naughty.) The follow-up to last year’s Yours Truly shows nice change in Grande’s style; she’s dipping her toes in EDM and and retro-pop alongside her specialty brand of Mariah Carey-like fare. But one thing certainly hasn’t changed: Grande’s “What the heck is she saying!?” enunciation. She needs a diction coach. Stat.

Justify Our Love: Madonna’s 25 Most Underrated Deep Cuts And B-Sides

By Christopher Rosa 

Madonna, the beloved single-monikered shape-shifting pop queen, turns 56 today! She’s been giving us hit after hit for more than 30 years, and her catalog is rich with everything from  sugary-sweet dance smashers (“Vogue,” anyone?) to moody ballads (“Frozen” lives up to its title). In addition to music, her fashion is iconic and certainly set the stage for future pop star get-ups (Cone bra, anyone?). But when you’ve got as many radio regulars as Madonna, there are bound to be a few gems that slip through the cracks.

View Photo Gallery

Nothing’s new. We know this. All of our favorite artists have inspirations, but the genius is in flipping the style and making it their own! Iggy Azalea, formerly Amethyst Amelia Kelly (seriously, she could’ve used this as her stage name), is the queen of “borrowing” from the luminaries that preceded her. Some are obvious; i.e. her Gwen Stefani influence is massive. Others are a bit more surprising — Traci Lords? Really? But the style-shifting Australian emcee has managed to make each of their signature looks her own.

View Photo Gallery

With everyone in a kurfluffle over VH1′s new unscripted show Naked Dating (Thursdays, 9/8C), we got to thinking about nudity in media. Where’s the last place it’s totally acceptable to be sans clothing in public (besides dates, apparently)? Music videos. Yep, your favorite divas, R&B crooners, and post-punk bands have all dropped trou — and bras, and panties — in the name of record promotion.

I’ll Wear What He’s Wearing: 10 Ways That Marilyn Manson Inspired Lady Gaga

View Photo Gallery

When it comes to Lady Gaga‘s style, she seems like a true original. Hooded leotards, Kermit dresses, the meat frock thing — she was born that way. Right? No. One of Gaga’s most important inspirations might surprise you: Sir Marilyn Manson. The shock rocker’s debut album Portrait of an American Family turns 20 years old today, and it got us thinking about all of the artists it has influenced, from hardcore acts to Mother Monster herself.

The Bomb: 10 Of The Biggest Album Flops In Music History

View Photo Gallery

As you may have heard, Robin Thicke recently released a new album, Paula. In an effort to win back his wife, hottie actress Paula Patton (the couple separated in February due to his cheating shenanigans), the R&B singer threw together this album of baby-come-back-to-me ballads — but it’s been greeted by crickets. The album has bombed completely, selling only 25,000 copies so far. And it gets even worse in the UK, where it sold only 530 copies! Perspective? An album has to sell at least 500,000 copies to be certified by the Record Company Industry of America. Not really the ex-wife panty-dropper the crooner was expecting, was it?
