We’re waiting with baited breath for VH1 You Oughta Know artist Lorde to drop her first album Pure Heroine on Monday! This exclusive stream whetted our appetites, but we’re gonna need a bigger bite of her soulful pop confection. Her first single “Royals” is currently duking it out with heavy hitters Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus for the top of the charts, so we’re expecting big things from her debut disc. In fact, we’re thinking that it’ll measure up to these 50 record breaking freshman releases!
There were so many noteworthy moments from the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, and we’re looking at some of the greatest supercuts and candid scenes caught during the show with our video gallery.
Is it 2000 all over again? After days of speculation, all five members of TRL all-stars *NSync took the stage at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, proving they haven’t lost a step of that memorable choreography. Read more…
They make girls scream, guys invest in styling product, and the whole world attempt awkward choreo (cue the “Bye Bye Bye” wave thingie). Boy bands are righteous! But most of them cannot dress, let’s be clear. In a summer where they’re hotter than ever — One Direction, 98 Degrees, Backstreet Boys, Boyz II Men, and New Kids on the Block are all on tour — let’s have a giggle at the fifteen most ridic guy-group ensembles ever, shall we?

Though some artists found stardom after breaking away from the groups that gave them their start, others weren’t as fortunate.
Shooting music videos with Tara Reid, judging America’s Best Dance Crew, and singing at sorority functions? While J.C. Chasez has kept a lower profile than his former *NSync buddy Justin Timberlake in recent months, the latest locale he’s turned up in is more surprising than the time we learned what the acronym for “ADIDAS” really meant. Yes, he has a tendency to wear fedoras in public and hang out with Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, but apparently JC is also a fan of the unexpected pop-up performance and somewhat stealing the thunder of nervous male undergrads who are just trying to snag a formal date.
In the spirit of sharing, Lance Bass went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to reveal a very painful, personal secret from his past–something his fellow *NSync members didn’t even know. Having previously cleared up any questions about his sexuality and expressed a strong desire to fly to the moon, who knows what he’s been harboring long after the marionette strings were locked away for a rainy day.
“For many years, throughout the ’90s, I frosted my tips,” Bass bravely confessed during Thursday’s late-night show, following Lance Armstrong‘s teary one-on-one with Oprah Winfrey. What and huh? This is the kind of intelligence that downright shocks those of us passionate TRL voters who truly believed he was born with a beautiful, naturally sun-kissed head.
