Our biggest personal nightmare is standing naked onstage in front of a crowd of people. But it looks like these celebs don’t share that fear, because they do it night after night! Sure, they might not be “naked,” but they’re definitely lacking the usual amount of clothing. The fact that they can still perform is pretty amazing! These ladies are definitely pros…
We’d like to wish a very happy 44th birthday to one Shawn Corey Carter, better known as Jay Z. The one and only HOV is celebrating his birthday by—we kid you not—going vegan for the next 21 days. “On December 3rd, one day before my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based!!” he wrote on his Life and Times website. Well, while we’d certainly prefer to spend our birthday going H.A.M. on a frosting-covered ice cream cake than eating seitan, we applaud Mr. Magna Carta Holy Grail not just for his commitment to healthiness, but for the lady he’ll have by his side during this cleanse: Miss Beyoncé Knowles Carter.
We are hard at work here at VH1 headquarters burning off the calories we put on over the long Thanksgiving weekend by pulling together our lists of the Best Albums, Best Singles and Best Videos of 2013. As we take a look back, though, we couldn’t help but notice that some of 2013′s Most Anticipated Albums never actually came out! While we were blessed with tons of great albums to listen to this year, there’s still a part of us that can’t help but wonder “How come that Beyoncé album never came out, anyway?” (EDITOR’S NOTE, 12/13/13: Beyonce had an album, after all! She dropped her eponymous album tonight out of the clear blue!) Or, as Fred Willard’s character in A Mighty Wind would say, “Wha happened?”
As we all know, Jay Z isn’t a businessman, he’s a business, man. And one of his latest ventures launches nationwide today — a men’s cologne called Gold Jay Z.
With Lorde‘s cover of Tears For Fears’ hit “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” having just been released, we’re wondering if the new version could possibly become more memorable than the 1985 classic. And even if the latest rendition doesn’t conquer the original, which cover songs actually were more successful than the first take?
Halloween fell on a weekend Halloween fell on a Thursday, which means that our famous friends have been sporting costumes for nearly a week now. During that time, we here at VH1 Music have been keeping our eyes on what our favorite musicians—names like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Adam Lambert, Demi Lovato & more—were dressing up as. We’ve collected some of the most memorable looks—be they spooky, sexy, or straight up scary!—in the gallery above and now we’re turning it over to you, the fans. Which musician WON Halloween 2013?
