My Crazy Girlfriend Q&A: Music, Little Mix and 'Crazy Stupid Love'

May 7th, 2014 5:00pm EDT
My Crazy Girlfriend Q&A: Music, Little Mix and 'Crazy Stupid Lov
My Crazy Girlfriend may be a new pop group but they are already headed for chart domination. Based in Los Angeles, Cosmo, Myah Marie, Justyn and Bennett (who happen to be twin brothers) are signed to Capitol Records.

You Must See These Terrible Album Covers!

March 5th, 2013 6:59pm EST
Are These The Worst Album Covers Of All Time?
Some singers and musicians just don't have much talent when it comes to having an eye for artwork.

Most of the time an album cover has a lot to do with sales, so imagery that's interesting, sexy, mysterious, etc., is always a good thing.

Take Miley Cyrus's 2013 release, "Bangerz", for example. The peach-to-purple color mix with two photographs of houseplants with a superimposed miley staring blankly at the camera looks more like something out of "Miami Vice" circa 1984 than a modern pop record. Throw in the neon "Bangerz" sign and it now looks like a newspaper promo for a south Florida st...
