Between beefing with Papa Johns, and announcing her exodus from Twitter. Iggy Aazalea found time to play a ride-or-die chick, in her new video for “Trouble.” The video features Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, as a no-nonsense cop in constant pursuit of Iggy’s trouble making boyfriend.
Yesterday was Brandy Norwood‘s 35th birthday. We have to say, we’re a little shocked. It feels like Brandy’s been in the game so long she could have been 100. To celebrate, we’re taking a look back at her musical duel with Monica, “The Boy Is Mine” and we’re going to decide once and for all who won that fight. And it’s not just Brandy vs Monica we’re concerned with today. We’re going head to head for Usher vs R. Kelly, Beyonce vs Shakira, Michael Jackson vs Paul McCartney and a host of other iconic romantic song battles. Want to know who came out on top? Check out our rankings after the jump. Read more…
Mariah Carey has trouble lip-syncing to “Fantasy,” Jennifer Lawrence and James Newton Howard’s “The Hanging Tree” sells over a million digital copies, Katy Perry and John Mayer are back in full relationship swing, and more on Last Lap.
Jennifer Hudson‘s new album JHUD is out today! And in celebration of her newest release, we thought we’d take a look back at her transformation from budding singer on American Idol to glamorous Oscar winner and sleek R&B diva. We all fell in love with Jennifer during her time on Idol, when her style was all cute girly dresses. And while she didn’t break the Top Five during her season, she ended up scooping up a Best Supporting Actress Oscar just a few years later, wearing a gorgeous gold gown to match her new status in life.
Like the rest of us, you’re probably ready for more Jennifer Hudson in your life. Lucky for you, you can stream her brand new album JHUD starting NOW until Tuesday, September 23 at 10 am at jenniferhudson.vh1.com. Read more…

The long-awaited James Brown biopic Get On Up explores the late Godfather of Soul’s legacy that continues to influence hip-hop, R&B, funk, and nearly every other musical genre to this day. The great JB changed the game over the course of his half-century career, and artists still strive to emulate his passionate live performances, howling vocals, and impossibly high levels of swagger. Some of those artists — including Jennifer Hudson — chatted with us about Mr. Brown’s untouchable body of work that was all his own. He truly was the hardest working man in all of show biz!
The greatest Independence Day party is of course the Philly 4th Of July Jam. But when these artists aren’t putting on a fantastic show, they like to celebrate in their own way. And as you would imagine, they go hard. We had exclusive interviews with members of the line up as they told us what their July 4th celebrations typically entail (hint: red, white, blue and awesomeness).
It’s not to early to start thinking about your Fourth of July plans, and from the looks of this lineup, you might want to find a way to Philadelphia ASAP. Just like last year, VH1 is bringing you the very best in live entertainment with names like Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and Aloe Blacc.
It was pretty cold over the weekend, but the dress Mariah Carey wore to the 2014 BET Honors helped heat things up! The diva performed a sizzling number perched on top of a grand piano, decked out in a plunging barely-there gown that seemed dangerously close to a “wardrobe malfunction” at all times. It wouldn’t be her first onstage flash, but Mimi managed to perform the song and look ridiculously stunning all at once. What a pro!
It’s a lot of pressure for an artist to deliver pitch perfect vocal performances for big budget live broadcasts. There’s a lot that can go wrong, so it makes sense that they’d want to hedge their bets with a pre-recorded version…just to be on the safe side. Unfortunately, sometimes this purely practical decision comes back to haunt them in a big way! Occasionally it becomes an amusing footnote to their career (sorry, Ashlee Simpson), while other times it completely destroys it. Read on for 10 of the biggest upsets caused by lip syncing!
