Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea went totally ’80s on the set of their new music video, “Pretty Girls.” The pair looked hotter than their crimping iron as they rode around Miami on the back of a red convertible, clad in washed-out jean vests, wild cheetah prints, and booty shorts. Did we mention they kiss? Yeah, that’s kind of a thing. Passing on the torch from her infamous Madonna smooch, it seems. Take a first look at photos from this “new classic” video!
Something about springtime makes people just want to
bang take an “adult nap.” People typically engage in this sort of activity in pairs, but sometimes, the warmer weather makes people just say, “What the hell? Let’s invite a friend!”
While NFL teams are shaking up their rosters with free agency moves, the league is looking to shake things up when it comes to next year’s halftime show. The NFL is ready to go all out in 2016, and they’re eyeing Britney Spears for their Super Bowl 50 halftime show. Read more…

Most of us have fears that range from reasonable to inexplicable. And our favorite musicians are no exception. Even artists with tough exteriors like Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna have their hang-ups. Blame past traumas (or spooky Ouija board predictions) for the panic induced by fish, owls, coat hangers, and the number 621(?!)

We still can’t get over the pleasant surprise of “FourFiveSeconds.” The collaboration of Paul McCartney, Kanye West, and Rihanna is catchy, understated, and doesn’t sound like every other hit. It got us thinking–not as much can be said for a lot of musical combinations over the years.
Larry King asks Big Sean about having a “Little Sean” with Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift donates $50,000 to NYC’s Department of Education, Zendaya gets an apology from Giuliana Rancic, and more on First Dibs.

We here at VH1 music consider ourselves pretty big music fans and connoisseurs, but even we have our limits. Some music lovers will go so far as to devote their entire lives to a single artist–becoming experts and authorities on their lives, collecting and displaying memorabilia and artifacts. From grand gestures like building exact replicas of Britney Spears’ bedroom and Elvis Presley‘s Graceland mansion, to protecting minutiae like Johnny Cash‘s AmEx and a guitar pick that Keith Richards threw at you, the time and effort put in to these 10 museums and shrines put even MTV Fanatic (RIP) fans to shame.
Check out these 10 totally bonkers museums and shrines dedicated to musical heroes.

Valentine’s Day is a double-edged sword. If you’re happily shacked up (or happily single), you can just skip this and have a great day.
But if you’re trying to get out of that toxic relationship before the 14th, or you’re already deep in the depths of a hellish split, or even if your broken heart is left unhealed by time, we’ve assembled 20 breakup songs that run the gamut—all deep cuts from the ’90s vaults.
We know you’re excited to see Katy Perry perform at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show on February 1st, but weren’t you just a tad perplexed when it was announced funk rock muscle god Lenny Kravitz would be joining her? It will definitely be an interesting collaboration because Perry and Kravitz are drastically different artists; however, this isn’t the first time the Super Bowl halftime show has merged two unlikely musicians together. (Madonna and LMFAO, anyone?)
Long before Kim’s #BreakTheInternet Paper magazine cover —when hashtags were just pound signs— magazine covers were a whole lot simpler. In that mythical time known as the 1990s, our favorite artists like Fiona Apple, Janet Jackson and Beck posed with unironic joy, donned pleather outfits, and were surrounded by vague references to “hi-tech” things. We took a stroll down memory lane and picked up 35 of the splashiest ’90s covers from alt-rock to hip-hop on the covers of Rolling Stone to Spin.
