It was pretty cold over the weekend, but the dress Mariah Carey wore to the 2014 BET Honors helped heat things up! The diva performed a sizzling number perched on top of a grand piano, decked out in a plunging barely-there gown that seemed dangerously close to a “wardrobe malfunction” at all times. It wouldn’t be her first onstage flash, but Mimi managed to perform the song and look ridiculously stunning all at once. What a pro!
VH1’s latest Rock Doc The Tanning of America: One Nation Under Hip Hop is about to get its grand TV premiere on February 24th, but we’re not going to make you wait that long to get a taste. The new jumbo-sized trailer just dropped, and it takes things to a presidential level.
Every time we watched Nick Cannon MC our Super Bowl Blitz concert series, we couldn’t help but think “Damn, that lucky dude is married to Mariah Carey!” And now we find ourselves feeling that way yet again, since Mimi took to her Instagram to show off her vacation photos (and incredible physique!). Days before she also shared an equally revealing throw-back LaChapelle portrait from the early 2000s…Thus proving that the Diva’s fabulocity (is that a word?) definitely doesn’t diminish with 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!
We are hard at work here at VH1 headquarters burning off the calories we put on over the long Thanksgiving weekend by pulling together our lists of the Best Albums, Best Singles and Best Videos of 2013. As we take a look back, though, we couldn’t help but notice that some of 2013’s Most Anticipated Albums never actually came out! While we were blessed with tons of great albums to listen to this year, there’s still a part of us that can’t help but wonder “How come that Beyoncé album never came out, anyway?” (EDITOR’S NOTE, 12/13/13: Beyonce had an album, after all! She dropped her eponymous album tonight out of the clear blue!) Or, as Fred Willard’s character in A Mighty Wind would say, “Wha happened?”
Mariah Carey should be having a fantastic week. After all, she’s just dropped her new single, “The Art of Letting Go.” Unfortunately, the music legend is referring to herself as a “diva in distress.” The pop singer sounded off today on Facebook about how a new sound engineer made a massive error and loaded the wrong version of her new single for fans. And this drama is coming just days after she went after American Idol (and presumably Nicki Minaj) on a radio show!
