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!
The annual Coachella festival is a place to see and be seen, making it a haven for celebrities who like to experiment with fringe, flower crowns and short shorts. If you’re not lucky enough to score a prime-time set or bring a famous friend to the stage, being photographed in a ridiculous outfit is one way to make an impression. And with desert temperatures and a flood of style bloggers, stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Paris Hilton pushed the limit of acceptable public attire in the name of music.
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.
