We’d like to wish a very happy birthday to Miss Miley Cyrus, Queen of Twerking. It’s been a very tumultuous adolescence for the former Hannah Montana, a young woman that grew up in the unforgiving glare of the white hot spotlight. Due to the pressure, she’s made lots of headscratching decisions along the way, including doing a great number of things that we really wish she would’ve waited ’til she turned 21 to do.
Lady Gaga served as both the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night, marking the 26th time in the show’s 38 seasons that an individual was asked by Lorne Michaels to pull double duty. Gaga, ever the showstopper, did a tremendous job—more on her in a bit!—but what other musicians did the best job of being hilarious during sketches AND singing their faces off?
Rihanna is to everything as Joey Tribiani is to grandma’s chicken salad — she somehow manages to make anything and everything sexy as hell, and her Instagram presents a treasure trove of evidence to support this thesis. From seductively draping herself over her grandfather to making sexual gestures with phallic objects at the Aquarium in Cape Town; from kissing elephant trunks in Africa and offending by being too sexy at a mosque in Abu Dhabi, Riri is the queen of excessive, untameable sexuality.
Tonight VH1 Classic will air Black Oak Arkansas: 40 Years of Heaven, Hell N’ High Water, a documentary about the wild antics and unlikely return of the high-energy boogie rockers. Led by long-haired and bare-chested frontman Jim “Dandy” Mangrum, the group were among the top concert draws of the mid-1970s before label and management troubles derailed them.

Here are the greatest metal mascots to ever grace an album cover, stage, t-shirt or nightmare.
Our rock and roll hearts are broken over the tragic passing of Lou Reed on Sunday. However, the loss sent us digging through our VH1 archives, and we’ve discovered a treasure: Lou’s hand picked (and handwritten) choices for the eight greatest songs in rock history!

Believe it or not, when they first hit the scene back in 1968, the name Black Sabbath was considered to be offensive to a wide swath of people. Oh, how far we’ve come since then.
“Is she really going out with him?” is a common refrain when examining the love lives or our favorite female celebrities. Why do some beautiful and talented women date douchebags? It’s a question nice guys have been pondered for many years. And there’s so many types of different douchebags they date: The bad boys who cheat on them and get in fights at their movie openings, ego-maniacs who belittle them and write nasty songs about them after they break up, and the scumbags who sell their stories and intimate photos to the highest bidder. And then there’s Chris Brown. Here are 10 Douche Magnets who just can’t stop dating jerks.
The premiere of CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1 last night got us thinking about what a musical hotbed the city of Atlanta is. As we learned, they don’t call it “Hot-Lanta” for nothing! So we decided to do a little bit of research to determine who, along with TLC, are the biggest musical artists to emerge from the A.T.L.
Back in the olden days, the only time that the soft, pink, muscular hydrostat that sits on the floor of your mouth used to peek out from its natural hiding spot was when a depressor emerged at the doctor’s office.
