The Black Keys are never shy about speaking their mind (just ask the Beliebers), and lately they’ve made it known that they’re not fans of Michael Jackson’s new record, XSCAPE. And that’s putting it mildly. “[It’s] some f-cking bullsh-t that sucks so bad that it took them three years after he died to make it listenable,” drummer Patrick Carney recently vented Rolling Stone. Their feelings had not cooled when they met up with VH1‘s own Jim Shearer before kicking off their world tour at Hangout Fest!
Nick Lachey tells us about an interesting flying experience during Big Morning Buzz Live, Jermaine Jackson is a little bitter over Michael Jackson‘s new album, and Mac Miller gives us all a Mother’s Day gift.

Beach Boys on a Pink Floyd classic? The Beatles on a Rolling Stones disc? Whitney Houston backing Chaka Khan?! No, these aren’t our picks for the best fantasy duets ever -They really happened!

Picture this: You walk into your local newsstand to pick up your favorite magazine and BAM! You spot a cover that stops you in your tracks. Your jaw drops, your eyes twitch, and you think, “Can I really be seeing what I think I’m seeing?” Of course you can! Rock and roll rebellion can’t be tamed by mag editors!
Today marks 25 years ago since the Michael Jackson was officially crowned “The King of Pop” at the the 1989 Soul Train Awards. Amazingly, it was silver screen legend Elizabeth Taylor who first uttered the immortal title (technically it was “King of Pop, Rock and Soul”) that followed him for the rest of his life -and beyond.
These days, it’s no big deal for two artists from different races to collaborate on tracks. From hits like Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” with Juicy J, to the somewhat tone-deaf “Accidental Racist” from LL Cool J and Brad Paisley, we barely notice the difference in complexions when music stars team up.
