Chat With Bobby Brown

by

It’s not every day that you can chat with one of music’s biggest figures? — especially when that figure is the “King of R&B” and had a very public and very turbulent 11-year marriage to Whitney Houston as well as bouts of substance abuse. But thanks to VH1 Mobile, now’s your chance. Watch Bobby Brown‘s episode of Behind the Music this Thursday, Sept. 24, at 10/9c, then live chat with Bobby himself after the show (12/11c)!

Users may download the app on their phone (AT&T phones, Sprint phones, BlackBerries from the BlackBerry App World store and iPhones from the iTunes App Store), then text in questions. Sample: What was it like performing with New Edition again at the BET Awards and who’s that woman on your arm?! You can also text TALK to 44686 and we’ll send you a download link. It will be a half hour moderated chat.

Stevie Wonder And Jennifer Hudson Make Beautiful Music Together

by

Stevie Wonder sure can class up a joint. As the only man allowed on the VH1 Divas stage last night, Wonder complemented the gorgeous Jennifer Hudson during their duet of “All In Love Is Fair.” This is one of our favorite duets of the night and cemented Hudson’s status as a diva and a legend in the making — not everyone can hold their own with Stevie and she proved herself more than capable. The soulful song played out in stark contrast to some of the other duets, like the Sheryl Crow-Miley Cyrus performance. We think it was the benchmark for elegance last night.

Paula Trips Up, Still Divalicious

by

No one can contend with Simon Cowell every day, get publicly scrutinized regularly, have unflattering interviews go viral in ten minutes, and still be as beloved as Paula Abdul. Perhaps we love her because of those things, not in spite of them, but she always manages a positive outlook and recovers from them no worse for the wear. Even tonight at VH1 Divas, Paula stumbled, literally, during her opening number, but she kept right on dancing and fulfilling her hosting duties, continuing to poke fun of herself, go head to head with the worst celebrity mocker of all, Kathy Griffin, and still come out of it on top.

Pink Wonders, “Why Can’t I Be White And Sing Like This?”

by

Remember how when Pink came out in 2000, her music had a decidedly more urban bent than it does now? In this interview from her Behind the Music (premiering Thursday at 8/7c) session, she talks about the racial politics surrounding her rise to fame and her ability to “really screw with your stereotypes.” She says, in fact, that the last point became her “life’s purpose.” Pretty admirable, no?
