With a history of summertime smashes, we’ve been itching for new music from Nicki Minaj ever since the days started to grow longer. Yes, she made the jump to the big screen in The Other Woman, but Nicki was never going to leave music for good, Barbz.
Motorcycles, like cars, have quite the phallic connotation. That’s why they make for a strong visual statement when used in music video. From futuristic Batman-style machines to classic shapes, the motorcycle is ubiquitous in pop music video. And what better way to adorn a motorbike than with a pop babe sprawled across it?
Tokyo Police Club steam up the stage on Big Morning Buzz Live, drummer Chad Smith gets ready for a challenge, and Jack Antonoff finds his “desire” on Craigslist.
Spreading your legs mid-dance can pull even the most flexible hamstring, so there are times watching performances when a sexy spread eagle makes us cringe. From splits to booty drops, we sometimes feel like those spread eagles are more uncomfortable than they are hot. Not that we’re complaining — we really do appreciate the elasticity of our favorite performers and the lengths they’ll go to in order to give us a full crotch view.
It’s not to early to start thinking about your Fourth of July plans, and from the looks of this lineup, you might want to find a way to Philadelphia ASAP.

There’s only one Dolly Parton and will only ever be one Dolly Parton. That said, the country goddess has some interesting heirs to her pop culture throne.

For this reason, pop is pivotal in breaking down sexual taboos, and recently, with a spate of Ultimate Queens spreading like honey across the charts, female sexuality has become a staple in music video and stage performances alike.
We thought that Nicki Minaj had pretty much won Instagram when she posted a series of scintillating shower selfies recently, but she’s already upped the ante and outdone herself. Ms. Minaj jetted off to Cabo San Lucas this week and she pretty much invited us along for the ride. She posted a scandalous series of sexy selfies of herself in close up and cavorting on the beach. However, we’re not just buzzing about her bikini bod. In more than one picture, it looks like Minaj is sporting an engagement ring!
