Meshell Ndegeocello is as much a scholar as she is a creator of popular music. For an hour on Thursday, we spoke over the phone about everything from the spiritual underpinnings of the raging debates over cultural appropriation to finding compassion for LGBTQ musicians who don’t necessarily feel comfortable living as…
Don’t be alarmed, but for about three minutes tonight, the Grammys were actually joyous, thanks to Bruno Mars and Cardi B.
The Grammys, the best awards show because it is made up almost entirely of musical performances, keeps rolling out their performers list for January 28.
Everything about the video for Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s song “Finesse” appeals to me in a pleasurable way. The song itself is a remix of Bruno’s New Jack-inspired track reminiscent of Guy or Bobby Brown, from his24K Magic album, so of course there’s a heavy splash of ’90s nostalgia in the video, but in a way that’s…
You might remember last year when Adele, crying and cradling her Grammy for Album of the Year at the end of the night, tearfully told audiences that Beyoncé actually deserved the award.
The news cycle now is such that little things that would’ve been slightly bigger things are buried while larger, more terrifying things dominate.

Amid another historically terrible weekend, Bruno Mars is here with a badly-needed gesture of kindness, announcing during his Saturday night show in suburban Michigan that he’d be donating $1 million to the Flint water crisis.
This is a simple video (for the song “That’s What I Like”) that features Bruno Mars, a man who enjoys the simple things in life, dancing in a room with some fun, cool illustrations around him while he sings about what he likes. That’s it. You are hereby ordered to be happy.
When Madonna was in the car with James Corden she tried to shock us all by announcing she made out with Michael Jackson once, and Corden, at least, seemed surprised. Bruno Mars gives away almost no personal details in his Carpool Karaoke segment, but he’s far more delightful to watch.
The first single and video from Bruno Mars’ upcoming album, 24K Magic, was meant to make us irrationally joyous. But his new single slows the vibes with low-light, ’80s/’90s Quiet Storm radio, matching silk pajamas, bass-in-your-voice mood music and it’s pretty chill.
Take a little time today to enjoy the view and, also, the gaudy outfits in this Bruno Mars video, “24K.”
The late ’70s girl group The Sequence is reportedly accusing Bruno Mars of sonically jacking one of their songs for his ridiculously popular hit “Uptown Funk.”
Fresh off Lady Gaga’s Golden Globe win for her portrayal as a wacky ingenue lookin’ for love in American Horror Story: Hotel, she will now embark on her biggest role yet: the lucky fool who gets to belt out the “Star Spangled Banner” to a stadium full of beer-addled football fans who are acting out their battle for…

In today's Tweet Beat, Judd Apatow is letting his feelings about Bill Cosby be known, Ciara has an epiphany and Bruno Mars shakes his fist at kids these days.
Guys, Bruno Mars performed "Uptown Funk" in gold rollers on The Voice, looking like some funkadelic, Purple Rain version of my auntie crossed with Morris Day. I loved it and you probably will too. Don't deny yourself some early morning funk, because "Uptown funk you up, uptown funk you up!"
