The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards took over television last night, and the stars stepped out dressed to impress. In addition to crying over the Carter family and twerking along to Nicki Minaj there were plenty of moments to be savored behind the scenes. Luckily, the celebs didn’t leave their phones at home.
Last week on VH1 was all about girl power. Taylor Swift made our Yas Girl of the week, Nicki Minaj‘s record breaking video for “Anaconda” crowned Drake the luckiest man alive, Meghan Trainor spoke all about that bass and more.
The Battle of the Summer Jams is drawing to a close. Over the past three months we had you vote on your favorite songs in head-to-head battles each Friday. During the course of each battle, there were many surprises as Ariana Grande, Calvin Harris, and Magic! all lost their respective rounds. But we gave the losers one more chance at the finals with the Redemption Round. With nearly 32 percent of the vote, “Rude” by Magic! made its way back into the final round. It will face off against previous winners, such as Becky G, Demi Lovato, and Iggy Azalea.
Pop princess Demi Lovato has the voice of an angel and the cutest dimples we ever did see. Looks, however, can be deceiving. Don’t let the former Disney darling status fool you, because this 22-year-old has a lot to say, and she’s has no shame in letting it all out. We know that Demi has a reputation for not taking anyone’s crap, and lately she’s been proving more than ever that she really doesn’t care.

We’re only half way through 2014 but there’s already been some memorable moments in music we just have to talk about. From Lady Gaga to Rita Ora, music’s hottest babes are turning up the volume on their hairstyles. With vertiginous looks, ultimate braids and every color of the damn rainbow, the past 6 months in pop music hair styles have been pretty outrageous.
Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams were are letting you determine the song of the summer by putting two songs in a face off until reach a final winner. This week Demi Lovato and Jennifer Lopez are stepping up to the plate. But first we need to look back on last week when newcomers Becky G and 5 Seconds of Summer offered up their catchy tunes, “Shower” and “She Looks So Perfect.” Becky G dominated the battle, taking 76 percent of the vote. She’ll join Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran in the winner’s circle. So who from this week will join them?
Are you feeling Lopez’s dance ballad, “First Love,” or “Really Don’t Care,” Lovato’s infectious kiss off to an ex?
Demi Lovato certainly knows how to show her spirit (and support of the LGBT community). The longtime gay advocate turns it up a notch in her new music video for “Really Don’t Care” featuring Cher Lloyd. Filmed during Los Angeles Pride, Lovato performs at the pride parade as one of the grand marshals. The video follows Lovato, her leather-clad dancers and 400,000 participants as they march the streets of LA. The infectiously happy song — a kiss-off to an ex-lover (and bullies alike) — gets a boost of joy thanks to all the excited faces, including famed blogger Perez Hilton and The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham, that pop up in the video.
