Hottest Sex Scenes In Music Video History

hottest sex scenes music video

Music videos have always straddled the line between selling the music or selling sex. The love scenes in some music videos are so steamy, so scintillating and so sexy that we’re not sure if we’re watching a music video–or a sex tape! But which are the hottest sex scenes in music video history? Let’s just say it’s a battle between making love on the beach, in a bathtub and in a plain old hotel room bed…

View Photo Gallery

It’s grills gone wild in Hollywood these days! We thought it was over back in ’06, but lately the teeth bling thing has been making a comeback in a huge way. Madonna‘s metal mouth’d grin at the 2014 Grammys last weekend reminded us that grills (or “grillz,” to be more precise) can go well and also go wrong…very very badly wrong. And we’ve got plenty examples of both!

Superstars Against A Superpower: Musicians Causing Controversy In Russia

View Photo Gallery

Even though the Iron Curtain has been down for more than 20 years, Russia is still facing opposition. But this time it’s coming from an unlikely force — popular musicians. Ok, it isn’t totally surprising that music artists would draw the ire of such a conservative country, but that doesn’t mean fans aren’t paying attention when stars end up in the middle of political squabbles.

With the 2014 Winter Olympics getting under way in Sochi this week, we couldn’t help but take a look at some of the acts who’ve previously caught the watchful eye of Russian officials.

Duet Albums We Wish Would Happen

Who doesn’t love a good duet? There’s something exciting about when two artists come together on a song and create something special. The right pair knows how to blend their vocals, merge their best assets and play off each other’s talents. Brandy and Monica knew how to do this when they recorded “The Boy Is Mine.” Although it was a huge hit, that’s all fans got. We never got a second duet single or even an album. That’s a real shame considering how those two would have brought the house down with an entire record. The same goes for regular collaborators, Beyonce and Jay Z, or Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez. These artists make up the list of duet albums we hope that happen!

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!

What Are The All-Time Funniest SNL Sketches Starring Musicians?

snl-music-hosts

Drake served as both the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live last night, marking the 27th time in the show’s 38 seasons that an individual was asked by Lorne Michaels to pull double duty; if you’re keeping score at home, Lady Gaga also did double duty back in November. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Drake act, but any traces of rustiness were not apparent when he stepped on stage in Studio 8H last night. More on his work momentarily, but first, we’re curious: What other musicians did the best job of being hilarious during sketches AND singing their faces off?
