The Grammys exist to honor the best achievements in music, but they also provide a stage for some of the hottest outfits you’ll see all year. See, unlike other awards shows, where it’s all about grace, class and style, the Grammys are about putting on an outrageous show and ramping up the sex appeal. Here’s a look back at the sexiest Grammys look of all time.
Some songs are so closely associated with their singers that it’s difficult to imagine anyone else performing them. That’s why it’s weird and jarring to hear that MANY monster hits were actually meant to be recorded by other people. It throws our whole music-loving universe into doubt! Can you imagine a world where Rihanna didn’t sing “Umbrella,” Beyonce didn’t sing “Irreplaceable,” and Britney Spears didn’t sing “Toxic”?! Folks, we don’t think we want to live in the world. But it almost happened!
It’s gotta be hard if you’re a child star growing up in harsh glare of fame, and incredibly difficult to make the world take you seriously as you get older. As a result, some truly over-the-top antics are sometimes required in order for you to break free from the kid image and assert your independence as an adult! Read on to see some of the most aggressive “I’m not a child anymore” moments of all time. Look out, folks: They’re not that innocent.
Hit-making is a collaborative process, with many hands and minds going into the mix to create a finish product. Don’t believe us? Check the credits for your favorite song in the charts today! In among the seemingly dozens of names you’ll find the one tunesmith who had the original germ of the melodic hook…and sometimes even the whole song! Most of these songwriters are unsung heroes (see what we did there?), names and faces unfamiliar to the masses despite the hours of pure pop pleasure they’ve given us over the years. Today we’ve decided to honor them by sharing their original demo versions of some of their greatest hits. Read on and enjoy the original voices behind the songs!
Hey boys! Can you hear us ladies?! Jessie J and Beyonce are two fabulous female artists who give guys a shout-out in their music (and a feisty shout-outs at that). Sometimes the lyrics are ferocious, and other times they’re simply controversial (give a good listen and you’ll know when you blush). But whichever way you want to spin it, the songs are unbelievably addictive. Do you think Jessie J’s video for “Do It Like A Dude” or Rihanna’s “Rude Boy” is the catchier male call-out?
