Female Celebs Must Cover Those Boobs, Butts And Lapel Pins At This Year’s Grammys

Don’t hate on the lapel pin.

All celebrity women who love to show off their cleavage should not attend Sunday’s 55th Annual Grammy Awards. And there’s no country for the ladies with rotund backsides either. Beyonce, don’t even think about wearing that black leotard; and Christina Aguilera‘s ruffled white panties booty shorts are out of the question. House rules, ladies.

Miley Cyrus + Tyler, The Creator And 17 More Really Weird Musical Hookups

Top 18 Unexpected Musical Collaborations

Miley Cyrus‘s March Cosmopolitan cover story is the interview that keeps on giving. Not only did she reveal two key groups to align yourself with if you want to make it in showbiz (that would be “Brazilians and gays”) and go bra-less on newsstands nationwide, but she finally elaborated on plans for her new album. We’ve seen some Twitter communication between Miley and Odd Future‘s Tyler, the Creator–including a enthusiastic suggestion to “get fat and watch TV”–and now we have proof that this friendly banter may have been born in the booth. Says Miley:

I wrote this song with Mary J. Blige, and Tyler, The Creator heard it and said, “I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.’”And he killed it!

While Tyler isn’t the first artist we’d guess Destiny Hope would call for studio time, but when combined with her performance of “Rebel Yell” and penchant for dropping Twitter truthbombs, we’re liking the diva more and more each day. As we wait for what will be either a head-scratcher of epic proportions or the reinvention of music (not to mention Disney star career paths) entirely, let’s look back at some of the more unexpected, and to be frank, WTF musical collaborations over the years.

25 Modern Day Christmas Songs That Might Be Better Than “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

Blasphemy! But someone had to do it. Everyone calm down, I’m not saying that you can’t play Mariah Carey‘s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” until your iPod breaks. All I’m saying is that there is so much more out there in terms of cheerful spirited holiday-themed music that is both modern and mostly listenable.

Let’s put aside our differences and agree that lists are fun. They are also only definite if you actually add them to your holiday playlist. SO: WILL YOU?

12 Slept On Songs From 2012 That Should Have Been Singles

Shoulda, coulda, woulda they say, and if we were heading up things at these labels, we might’ve done things a bit differently. But alas, we do not so we do what we do best and make a catchy end of year list that points out songs that deserved their run at the pop charts. Even if they never see the light of Billboard glory, they’re certainly some of the best songs of the year and should get your listen. Who knows! Did you know “Starships” wasn’t even on the original run of Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday? That’s right, and mostly why there was a “Pink Friday 2″ aka Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. So there’s always a chance for long-lost songs to see new glory. Here are the ones we think deserve it.

 

Ciara, “Livin’ It Up”

Talk about a missed opportunity, Ciara’s “Livin’ It Up”, a tropical romp across a Kid ‘N Play sample, isn’t even included on the final version of her album One Woman Army. Snatched from a Cosmopolitan Magazine sampler CD, blogs went nuts over the track after it leaked across the web in anticipation for the album. Too bad that when Ciara released her first single, the apty-named, and decidedly down-beat “Sorry”, turned out “Livin’ It Up” was more of what everyone wanted.

 

Frank Ocean, “Lost”

channel ORANGE received a whole bunch of attention this year, although it was Frank Ocean’s sexuality that managed to steal the spotlight most of the time. The album ended up being a gorgeous collection of songs that perfect flowed in and out of each other–even the 9+ minute “Pyramids” shined. But if any song had a chance at the pop charts, it would’ve been “Lost” a song that tells the tale of a drug-cooking girlfriend atop a catchy pop melody.

You Would Be “Just A Fool” To Miss Christina Aguilera And Blake Shelton’s Ellen Performance

This morning on Ellen, Christina Aguilera unwrapped “Just A Fool,” a lazy belter off of Lotus, an album we actually quit liked, that has her duet-ing with country superstar and her fellow The Voice judge Blake Shelton. Aguilera has tried a lot of genres and styles in her many years of pop stardom, and one thing that’s remained true through it all is that the woman can sing. “Just A Fool” makes good use of that talent, giving her (and Shelton!) space to hit all the really big notes. And hit them they did on Ellen’s festive sound-stage today. Mostly they kept things casual — both wearing jeans, neither letting go of their mics — but there is nothing casual about how good they sounded.

VH1 Exclusive: Who Is Midian And Why Is She “Bitter?”

You’ll want to know, “Who’s this Midian chick?” after watching the VH1 premiere of the video to her debut single “Bitter.” Her chilling voice is soulful to its core. Vocally she’s a mix between Adele and Christina Aguilera. Those are not comparisons of her artistry as it’s much too early in her career for that. In what may be her breakout song, the R&B singer/songwriter pours her transparency over the soft piano keys and drum beat. “You don’t know how I feel when I see you out with your new girl/And knowing that you don’t love me anymore makes me so bitter.” Vulnerability is a gamble. No one wants to to admit to the feeling of bitterness after a failed relationship, especially when the ex has moved on. But vulnerability can also be relatable. Read more…

Christina Aguilera Thinks Her Break From The Voice Will Make Her A Better Coach

We’ve acknowledged that the haters are in full force when it comes to Christina Aguilera‘s Lotus. And they’re doing what haters do. But Xtina’s resilient. And like a lotus, she’s determined to bloom regardless. “Lotus to me is the culmination and definition of the unbreakable flower,” she tells VH1. “No matter what its surroundings or the harshest of weather conditions, it survives and continues to thrive.” Read more…
