Mark Ronson came uptown to funk up VH1′s headquarters just a couple of days after his show-stealing SNL performance with Bruno Mars. Check out the photos as we tagged along for a whirlwind day of his press tour, and make sure to get a look at his pineapple skull kicks.
Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” feat. Bruno Mars is the electrifying jam that’s been inspiring musicians to make their own versions of the hit. Put on your shades, kick back, and groove to these five covers of “Uptown Funk.”
Mark Ronson is singularly responsible for funking up this fall, and we couldn’t be more grateful. “Uptown Funk,” his slinky groovetastic floor filler with Bruno Mars, has been blaring out of speakers worldwide, and that’s just the start of the story for the famed producer and DJ. He stole the show on an episode of Saturday Night Live with Mars and rapper Mystikal a few weeks back, and recently experienced a moment that he calls “the most amazing, surreal part of my musical journey.” For a man who has worked with everyone from Amy Winehouse, Paul McCartney, and Adele (just to name a very few), it must have been pretty damn incredible. From his new song and new album, to career highlights, Ronson revealed all to Jim Shearer On VH1′s Top 20 Countdown.
Ne-Yo, Pharrell and LL Cool J are few of many artists who will almost never leave the house without covering up their locks, or lack thereof, with bizarre headwear. Without wearing these crazy caps, we’re not even sure if we would recognize them. But what we want to know is: what the hell are they hiding under there?!
Everyone dreams of one day fronting their favorite rock band, even if it means shoving the real lead singer into the corner. As one of the thousands of hopefuls on American Idol, a young Adam Lambert broke through with “Bohemian Rhapsody” as his audition song. And by the end of the season he would eventually joined Queen onstage, proving that certain dreams really can come true — especially if you happen to know Simon Cowell.
The full impact of last month’s Grammy Awards is felt on this week’s Nielsen SoundScan sales charts, but no Grammy act could topple the Frozen soundtrack from the top of the charts. Meanwhile, Bruno Mars benefits from both the Grammy Awards and his performance during halftime at the Super Bowl. We crunch the numbers in this week’s SoundScanner.
Bruno Mars won big at this year’s Grammy Awards, taking home the Best Pop Vocal Album for 2012′s Unorthodox Jukebox. He’ll be filling your Sunday TV screens and Twitter feeds again this weekend, as the official Super Bowl Halftime Show performer. He’s huge on stage, yes, but have you seen him off-screen?
