It was certainly an evening of girl power at the 2014 American Music Awards on Sunday. From Taylor Swift’s glitzy opener to Charli XCX’s sassy set, it was a female-centric affair. And we loved it. However, we weren’t prepared for all the feels some of the ladies gave us. Two in particular, Lordeand Selena Gomez, delivered powerhouse performances that were possibly career game-changers.
VH1′s You Oughta Know live in concert is quickly approaching and we couldn’t be more excited. In preparation for one of the best nights in music, we’ve complied a few former YOK artist throwback videos that will prove how successful we’ve been at breaking music’s biggest and brightest stars before they hit superstardom. Are you familiar with a singer from New Zealand named Lorde? Have you heard of an artist from the UK named Adele?! Check out these former YOK stars and tune in to VH1 on November 13th at 9 PM ET/PT to watch this year’s amazing show.

VH1′s Pop Queen Faceoff is underway, and the competition has been fierce. Everyone from Britney Spears to Janet Jackson to Madonna has battled it out for the top goddess spot. We’ll have the results for you soon, but we started thinking about what will happen if we do this competition again 10 years from now. Who will be the industry’s leading pop queens? It’s an interesting question, but we think we found the answer(s). These 10 ladies have made a solid impression on the pop scene and are swiftly making their way to queen status. Simply put, they’re the pop queens to-be. Read more…
Brace yourselves, because it’s just days away from Halloween 2014. And since this year’s All Hallows’ Eve falls on a Friday, your workweek may not have not had time to prepare for whatever costume party you’ve been invited to, or playful plans you’re friends have mind. Not to fret. Leave it to the VH1 team to help you put together a pop culture get-up with little expense, travel, or difficulty!
Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban are among the few getting honored by CMT, Gwen Stenfani teases her new song “Spark The Fire”, 50 Cent will perform at Cyndi Lauper‘s Home for the Holidays benefit and more on Last Lap.
Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor are set to perform at the 2014 CMA Awards, Ed Sheeran responds to the Isle Of Wight Festival boss calling him boring, T.I. settles the dispute between Iggy Azalea and Snoop Dogg and more on First Dibs.
The folks at South Park do not mess around. When they parody someone, they go all out. And with famous musicians, there’s just so much fodder. You remember the Kanye West “gay fish” saga (which we’re pretty sure Kanye is still moody about). Show writers Trey Parker and Matt Stone can literally never run out of musicians to parody because, like Yeezy, musicians will always do things that warrant parodying. Hell, even if they don’t, South Park will parody them anyway. The latest musician to find themselves on the SP chopping block is VH1 You Oughta Know superstar Lorde, who unlike Kayne, has been a very good sport about it all.
But Kayne and Lorde aren’t the only ones to get the cartoon treatment. Jennifer Lopez has been a hand puppet, Bono has been a giant turd, Barbara Streisand has been a dinosaur, Celine Dion was married to Terence (of Terence and Philip fame) and Stevie Nicks joined Fleetwood Mac as a goat. When you put it like that, Lorde got off pretty easy. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fit all the wonderful musician cameos on SP into this list (there’s SO many!), so instead we’ve made a list of the best musician parodies from the shows’ 18 seasons.
