The Best & Worst Dressed At The 2015 Grammy Awards
Fashion at the Grammy Awards is always entertaining. It's a chance for celebs to have a little fun with their style without being constrained by the "rules" often dictated by more formal award shows.

The stars came out in full force at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night. Miley Cyrus toned down her usual "look at me" style by donning a Alexandre Vauthier LBD. Yes, she bared some skin, but she looked sexy, not over the top.

Rihanna also impressed in a strapless, cotton candy pink Giambattista Valli gown. The dress was ginormous, but she made it work.

10 'All Time Low' Songs In Musician’s Careers
“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” Yep, that’s the sentiment of these songs that mark the ‘all time lows’ – the bottom of artist’s career as far as the objectionable, horrific song. No, it doesn’t mean that the album wasn’t successful (though in some instances, that’s the case), but these songs could be described as detritus (fun word) aka GARBAGE! Why couldn’t these musicians have avoided such a mess? Here are 10 head shakable moments for your listening pleasure worth scrutinizing.

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Barbra Streisand’s 'Partners' Beats Chris Brown for Top Spot on
Few 72-year olds can do it like Barbra Streisand. Who just landed another #1 album – Barbra Streisand! Duets album Partners not only debuted at #1, but did so with larger than expected numbers (196,000 copies). It also made history giving Streisand at least one #1 album in the past six decades. Go Barbra – it’s your birthday… well not really!

Chris Brown settles for the #2 spot behind Streisand, as X sells 146,000 copies. While Brown might be disappointed he didn’t score his third number one album, X performed better its first week than Fortune, which sold 135,000 copies. Maybe even ...

Review: After Many Delays Chris Brown's 'X' Is Stronger Than Expected

9/18/2014 3:30pm EDT
Chris Brown - X
What’s a deadly disease that damages a musician’s career? The correct answer is the delayed album. Sure, controversy does the same (Chris Brown might know something about that), but the delayed album can be truly devastating. Brown’s sixth studio album X has been delayed several times. That said, even at its most imperfect, X is better than previous LP Fortune. Not only was Fortune filled with curse words, it also incited curse words…

"X" opens the effort mysteriously, gradually evolving into electro-R&B. It sports repetition and gimmickry commonplace to contemporary R&B and pop. Eve...

Lecrae Anomaly
It’s rare that the Christian rapper debuts atop the Billboard 200. How rare – well it never happens – like “never ever.” Anyways, Lecrae made it happen this week as Anomaly outperformed early prognostications and sold 88,000 copies. Lecrae was able to hold off a strong second week from Maroon 5’s V (80,000 copies, #2) as well as what was thought to be a tight race with Jhené Aiko (Souled Out sold 70,000 copies, good for #3).

While Lecrae’s debut is celebratory, it is also another week where no albums moved 100,000 copies. Throw in the fact that besides Lecrae and Jhené Aiko, the top ...

Charlie Sheen Leads A Long List Of Celebs Taking The Ice Bucket
If you haven't yet heard about the "ice bucket challenge" going on to benefit ALS, then chances are you've been living under a rock for the last two weeks.

The social media craze, which actually began months ago (more on that later), has been sweeping the nation all in the name of raising money and awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The challenge is simple: someone "nominates" you and two others to take the challenge next and then dumps about a five-gallon bucked of ice water over their own head. Those nominated can either accept the...
