The Rev. Robert Wright Lee IV, a many-times-removed nephew of Robert E. Lee who has been outspoken about his support of the removal of the statue of his ancestor in Charlottesville, spoke out against racism, which he called “America’s original sin” on the VMAs stage.
I guess Lorde’s VMAs performance was supposed to be relatably casual, but it just seemed like she was making it up as she went along. I mean, she had dancers and they managed to be at the same place at the same time onstage, so I guess there was choreography, but maybe only insofar as...that? Opting to not so much as…
Some four years after it began (thanks to some ridiculous argument over backup dancers), the feud between two of pop music’s biggest names may soon come to an end before a live studio audience.
After watching their performance of the song during the VMAs pre-show and because I hear it play in the grocery store every other time I visit, I can safely say that I’ve heard “7 Years” at least three dozen times. But it wasn’t until very recently that I learned Lukas Graham, the artist responsible for the hit, was…
Above is a tweet from the NYPD’s 6th Precinct that features Sgt. Balunas escorting Rihanna to a VMAs afterparty at Up & Down late Sunday night.
If you’re scratching your head (with your claws) over Kanye West’s “Fade” video, which he premiered last night at the VMAs and currently lives as a Tidal exclusive, just set aside a few hours and get ready to binge-watch the clip on a loop. That is the key to understanding the video’s twist ending, in which GOOD Music…
Your ruling queen Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter delivered yet another beast of a performance tonight at the Video Music Awards. This is what she does, so you might as well get used to it.
I bet you didn’t know you’d be spending the 53rd anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech suffocated by extreme earnestness when you started your day-slash-turned on the VMAs. Well, here you are. Happy happy. Maybe we could love somebody? Maybe her name is Alicia?
According to TMZ, Kanye West’s four-minute performance on the VMAs this Sunday will be filled with whatever the hell he wants to do—as opposed to, say, a request that he perform his latest hit or debut a new one, for instance, as we can assume many of the other performers will do.
Dust off your 2009 diaries: neither marriage nor kids can keep Kanye away from possibly asking Taylor out for some sex and pizza in the future, no matter how much he wants to dip Kim’s ass in gold!!! (#tbt). (“Pizza” implied by the author; it is not the official food choice of Mr. West.)
Happy Bey Day and welcome to Shade Court. We’re heading into Labor Day weekend, where we celebrate the sacrifices of the American labor movement. (Thanks Wikipedia.) I don’t know for sure whether or not judges qualify as part of the labor movement, but this sure feels like a lot of work.
As everyone knows, the annual Video Music Awards (which aired Sunday night on MTV) is a veritable who’s who of the red carpet—mostly because you’re literally asking yourself WHO? every time someone new walks on stage.
Hello hello and good morning! The VMAs were a mess, as usual, but the red carpet was somewhat—SOMEWHAT—more subdued. Let’s dive in.
It was a huge weekend for some of the world’s biggest pop stars. But while many of them were releasing new music videos, surprising us with free albums, registering new songs, hugging it out after years-long feuds, calling each other bitches live on stage, and even announcing their presidential runs, Katy Perry was…
Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” video is here (“finally!” - someone, I’m sure) and it’s the exact African safari paradise that we were promised! Lions! Elephants! Shirtless Scott Eastwood! And, bizarrely, nary a black person in sight.
Tyga’s Got Lost On My Way To Clean The Garage outfit, Justin Bieber’s Skipping Second Period Algebra to Smoke Cigarettes and Cry Under the Bleachers outfit, and John Legend’s Am I The Only Adult Man In The Room outfit: if you had to pick, which would you F, M, and K?
Kylie’s got sudden bangs, Rita Ora applies her trademark thirst to this Black Swan getup, and FKA twigs dresses for a black tie roll in the hay If you had to F/M/K these 2015 VMA red carpet looks, which would you pick?
Last night, as Taylor Swift pulled a classic derail on Nicki Minaj’s very important VMA tweets, Twitter user @chaelinfenty brought up an interesting point: “can we talk about how taylor’s video isn’t original and was copied from a group of four WOC, 2NE1,” she wrote, not a question but a declaration.
