VH1 Vintage: Before Elevator Fights, Beyoncé Launched Her Oscar Campaign With The Pink Panther

Beyoncé has been in seven feature films to date. Did you remember that The Pink Panther, opposite Steve Martin, was one of them? At least tell me that you recall “Check On It,” a modern day classic featured on the film’s soundtrack? (And if you don’t agree, then who are you?)

View Photo Gallery

There is no more dominant couple in music—let alone pop culture—than Jay Z and Beyonce. The two separately have topped the charts with hit after hit and surprise album after surprise album, but together they make magic. While they never have truly recorded a duet, the two have collaborated a number of times—lending backing vocals and 16 bars to each other’s songs. Among them, “Crazy In Love,” “Drunk In Love,” and “03′ Bonnie & Clyde.” With the news that the two are planning to embark on their first official tour together, we can’t help but review all their best musical moments.

Truth Or Dare: Lily Allen Spills on Sheezus And Teaches Us How To Twerk

Lily Allen has never been one to shy away from telling the cold, hard truth nor has she ever skittered away from a challenge. So, we thought what better way to celebrate her new album, Sheezus, than with an old-fashioned game of “Truth or Dare.” Luckily for us, Allen didn’t disappoint. She taught us how to twerk and told us why Beyoncé is responsible for the worst hangover of her life.

Kelis And Khaleesi From Game Of Thrones Were Basically Separated At Birth

We already know that Kelis is a culinary fiend — her new album is called Food, for starters — but just how much television does she watch while snacking? Because we can’t find a reason not to think about Game of Thrones during all waking hours, we put the singer’s knowledge of her own work to the test against that of a powerful, traveling queen with a similar sounding name. And why not? With her own show coming to The Cooking Channel, Kelis has got to get a feel for the competition.

Concert Review: Ledisi Proves She’s “The Truth” At The Beacon Theatre

led_main

Ledisi made it onto my radar late in the game, but it’s been a love at first listen ever since! We do all kinds of things for the sake of love, so I thought almost nothing of the brisk and rainy weather I braved on Wednesday to see Ledisi perform at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. I knew it would be worth it, and I was right. From the moment she strutted onto the stage to perform the single “That Good Good” off her seventh album, The Truth, Ledisi showcased an undeniable confidence and vibrancy that lit up the Beacon for the entire evening. The “Truth” theme for the night -and the 29-city tour- was solidified with her second song “Bravo,” featuring the lyrics: See it’s the same pretty woman with a brand new style/Same Ledisi but she ain’t walkin’ she flying/A new day making big moves. We were witnessing the same Ledisi we’ve always adored, only bolder and better.

Frank Ocean Posts (And Then Deletes) Shirtless Selfie

frankoceanmain

Oh hello, Frank Ocean. The other night the R&B singer was having some late night fun when he posted a shirtless selfie to his Tumblr page. The singer has since deleted the image and posted a follow-up reading, “all posts after 2am and before 7am shall be forgiven.” Oh don’t worry, your photo is forgiven Mr. Ocean. Although deleting it is not. Thankfully, Tumblr users were able to grab the image before it disappeared.
