With everyone in a kurfluffle over VH1′s new unscripted show Naked Dating (Thursdays, 9/8C), we got to thinking about nudity in media. Where’s the last place it’s totally acceptable to be sans clothing in public (besides dates, apparently)? Music videos. Yep, your favorite divas, R&B crooners, and post-punk bands have all dropped trou — and bras, and panties — in the name of record promotion.
Get your music news with Last Lap: HBO announced the official date and details of the Jay Z and Beyoncé On The Run special, T.I. releases a song that’s dedicated to wife Tiny, Ray J is charged with sexual battery and more.
As you may have heard, Robin Thicke recently released a new album, Paula. In an effort to win back his wife, hottie actress Paula Patton (the couple separated in February due to his cheating shenanigans), the R&B singer threw together this album of baby-come-back-to-me ballads — but it’s been greeted by crickets. The album has bombed completely, selling only 25,000 copies so far. And it gets even worse in the UK, where it sold only 530 copies! Perspective? An album has to sell at least 500,000 copies to be certified by the Record Company Industry of America. Not really the ex-wife panty-dropper the crooner was expecting, was it?
Robin Thicke needs a hug, you guys. Preferably from his estranged wife Paula Patton. The “Blurred Lines” singer has been pursuing his high school sweetheart with rom-com levels of determination since the pair split in February. He’s professed his undying love in the middle of concerts, sent her a whole forest full of flowers on Valentine’s Day, but his new single “Get Her Back” takes things to a whole new level.
Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke broke the internet last August with their unforgettable performance during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. But will their famous fathers Alan Thicke and Billy Ray Cyrus will follow in their footsteps with a duet of their own? It seems like they’re pretty down with it! But the real question is: Who’s going to wear the foam finger?
The always-provocative Miley Cyrus has taken outrageousness to new heights since kicking off her Bangerz tour last month. From flying hot dogs to massive tongues, the 21-year old seems to be having a blast on the stage. And like a true performer, she hasn’t been afraid to share her love with the world…literally! Miley likes to get all up on everybody during performances, from famous faces like Katy Perry, to fans, friends, and even Santa Claus! Read on for a complete guide to Miley’s onstage PDAs.
