Last night we partied on the beach, under the moon and stars at VH1 + SCOPE’s Official Party celebrating ART + MUSIC + BEACH in Miami. On an evening with weather so warm and perfect, surrounded by beautiful people on the sand, it was hard for us NYC’ers to remember that it is actually December.
There is certainly a perception in the world that Lady Gaga is a World Class Weirdo, and her reputation for eccentricity is certainly something that Gaga’s camp has milked over the years. Some would argue that Gaga has gone to the weirdo well once too often, and her lack of relatability is one of the primary reasons that ARTPOP has been underperforming against its expectations. To her credit, Gaga seems to have recognized this flaw in her brand strategy and has been working overtime of late to humanize herself. Her widely praised appearance on SNL last month was her first successful step in this direction, and we feel that anyone who watches the cable premiere of Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular on VH1 this Saturday, December 7th at 7PM/6C will definitely gain a new appreciation for Miss Stefani Germanotta.
With that said, here are the Five Most Memorable Moments From Lady Gaga & The Muppets‘ Holiday Spectacular!
As Charles Darwin so famously pointed out way back when, a big part of survival is adapting to your environment. So when Nirvana’s Nevermind was released in 1991 and threatened to wipe out metal for good, it was time for a few changes. Some bands went on hiatus or even disbanded; others began to experiment with their sound, incorporating grunge and alternative influences. The result was a mixed bag – a few albums were actually pretty successful. Others? Not so much.
If you could sum up 2013 with just one person, Kanye West probably believes that person would be Kanye West. But unlike years past, he didn’t just use his music to get his message across. This year, Yeezy uncharacteristically sat down with some of the biggest names in media for a spate of interviews.
Will there be more sex push-ups in the music video for Lady Gaga and R. Kelly‘s “Do What U Want?” Is Mick Jagger heading back to the studio? What didn’t you see on the “Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!” event last night?
We hate to say we told you so, but … we told you so! All year we’ve been bringing you the best new music so you can stay aurally informed, and if you’ve been doing your homework and keeping abreast of the hottest new acts with us, you’ll notice that more than a few of our amazing You Oughta Know artists, both past and present, scored well-deserved props when the 2014 Grammy Nominees were announced tonight.
LeAnn Rimes is one of the best-selling artists in the history of country music, as well as the star of VH1′s upcoming reality show, LeAnn & Eddie (coming in 2014). Her latest album, Spitfire, dropped this summer and contains a mix of originals and covers. Her latest single, “Gasoline And Matches,” is from the latter category—it first appeared on Buddy & Julie Miller‘s award-winning 2009 album, Written In Chalk.
The nominees for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards were announced in Los Angeles tonight during a live special that aired on CBS. Hosted once again by LL Cool J—does the LL stand for Lip Licker or WHAT?!?— the show featured performances from the likes of VH1 You Oughta Know artist Lorde, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Robin Thicke and more. The 2014 Grammys will go down live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, and broadcast on CBS at 8PM ET/PT.
