While down in Miami for the SCOPE art fair and party we took the opportunity to chat with a few artists about where they draw inspiration for their own art. SCOPE featured artist, Hebru Brantley said he found inspiration at the art show by being exposed to different artists from all around the world and explained that it will fuel his creative path for the next six months. Sister indie music duo, Tegan & Sara said they are inspired by life and pop music.

Most of us were overjoyed to wake up last Friday to discover that a BRAND NEW SURPRISE BEYONCE ALBUM was ours for the downloading. It was an unexpected treat, but apparently Rihanna was less-thrilled with Beyonce‘s holiday gift to her legions of fans. In fact, there are rumors that she’s pretty pissed!
Move over, “Someone Like You” because there’s a new heart-wrenchingly gorgeous breakup song to make us sob into our morning Cinnamon Toast Crunch (don’t judge). The delicate beauty of indie duo A Great Big World‘s “Say Something” is enough to make us cry, but the incredible success story behind this little-song-that-could is enough to cheer us right back up again.
Our favorite pop stars are one part singer, one part dancer, and one part style chameleon! The best in the biz are never afraid to mix it up a little bit and change their look in exciting new ways. Sometimes these changes pay of huge, leading to massive image improvements. And other times…well, the word “mistake” comes to mind.
Last week was Miami art week and VH1 + SCOPE paired up to celebrate all things ART + MUSIC + BEACH. We took in the sights and sounds and spoke to some of the party’s attendees who all agreed that there is nothing better than sharing their talents. Musicians, Tegan & Sara, artist Hebru Brantley and DJ Cassidy explained that creating and sharing their art with fans is truly a gift and what fuels them as artists. Check out our full SCOPE coverage here.
Kings of Leon returned to the Saturday Night Live stage last night with host John Goodman. The Nashville-based rock band kept their performances of “Temple” and “Wait For Me” surprisingly low key. While most recent musical guests have sought to dazzle or provoke with their performances (think Lady Gaga and R. Kelly‘s sex push ups), the guys of Kings of Leon kept it simple and let their music make the statement.
Which new song did Beyoncé add to her Mrs. Carter World Tour set list this weekend? Why did Coldplay spend almost $7 million on wristbands? What was the biggest story at New York’s Jingle Ball?
It’s that time once again. Another year has flown by, and we’re sitting here in New York City on a frosty winter eve taking stock of the year 2013 as it pertains to music videos. It was not only a year in which stars transformed into superstars (we’re looking at you, Bruno Mars and Miley Cyrus), but one where newcomers like Lorde, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis were able to flip the script and dominate their seemingly unstoppable peers. So sit back and enjoy the ride as we count down VH1′s Top 40 Videos Of 2013!
