And she got a standing ovation for…
The Go-Go’s, reunited for their final tour this summer 38 years after the band formed, hit the Billboard Music Awards red carpet before their farewell performance. Jane Wiedlin’s like YOU WILL NEVER FORGET ME!
If a photograph from their recent Billboard magazine profile is to be believed, one-fifth of Fifth Harmony has two right feet. I don’t mean that in an idiomatic sense, either, as we all know two- to three-fifths of what makes Fifth Harmony “Fifth Harmony” are their dancing skills. No, what I mean is that Ally Brooke…
In a new Billboard piece detailing Kesha’s lawsuit against Dr. Luke, Kesha’s mother Pebe Sebert has spoken, and the details are as gruesome as ever.

Pornhub has had a long (and hard) (sorry) history with public advertising. The site tried to get its ads into the Super Bowl but was quickly rejected and recently PornHub's glorious SFW billboard was taken down as quickly as it was erected in Time Square. Why can't free porn just get a break?

The music industry has changed, but apparently people still buy albums. And Miley's "Bangerz" has officially had the year's biggest sales week for a woman.
Someone in Dublin has decided that Rihanna needs just a liiiiitle more clothing on her Diamonds World Tour billboards. Enter a couple of strapless dresses and a stapler.
Here we have an ad for Manhattan Mini Storage, which seems to really capture the spirit of the age while offering precious little information about how wonderful storing things with Manhattan Mini Storage can be. Maybe it means that we shouldn't store all those Paul Ryan mistakes in our hearts, that, you know, Paul…
Okay, it was a billboard of Kate Moss. Still, it had to be scary to see her image bearing down on you from above! Three men and one women went to the hospital for injuries, but luckily most of them appear to be minor.
"Approximately 92% of the 174 songs that made it into the [Billboard] Top 10 in 2009 contained reproductive messages," declares SUNY Albany psychology professor Dawn R. Hobbs in her recent study about the prevalence of sex in American pop music. Are we at all surprised?
