Russell Wilson Drops A Bombshell About His Sex Life

Russell Wilson Reveals Why He & Ciara Are Abstaining From Sex
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his girlfriend, singer Ciara, have taken a vow of celibacy.

The pair started dating in April, and the football player asked Ciara if she would abstain from sex because of his religious beliefs.

During a question-and-answer session at The Rock church on Sunday, Wilson explained, "I asked her what would you do if we took all that other stuff off the table and did it Jesus' way?

"I said to her, 'Can we love each other without that?' If you can really love each other without that then you can really love somebody."

However, it's difficult for...

How Did Mumford & Sons New Album Perform?

5/14/2015 10:09am EDT
Mumford & Sons Take ‘Wilder Mind’ To No. 1 On Billboard
Unsurprisingly, Mumford & Sons cruised to a career second #1 album with Wilder Mind. Despite retooling their banjo-heavy style, plenty of people still joined the British band’s party – 249,000 to be exact, with most of those equating to copies sold. Go back three years earlier when Babel and mad banjo were still thriving, and the numbers were loftier to the tune of 600,000. Still, given the new normal of album sales and a new way to calculate the overall impact of an album, Mumford & Sons performed well.

It wasn’t all about Wilder Mind contrary to popular belief (or the majority of s...

What Did We Think Of Ciara’s Latest Album?

5/11/2015 1:45pm EDT
Review: Ciara Sticks To The Script On ‘Jackie’
Six albums into her career, Ciara seems to be at a comfortable spot in her career. No her albums aren’t flying off the shelves, but Ciara essentially has remained in her lane with some tweaks here and there. She elevated her game beginning with fourth album Basic Instinct album, but her ‘makeover’ wasn’t a total redesign. Latest album Jackie, named after her mother, mixes dance, hip-hop, pop, and R&B together with enjoyable, if predictable results.

“Jackie (B.M.F.)” opens Jackie with a combination of three distinct songs. Throughout the course of the three parts of “Jackie,” Ciara ...

New Album Releases To Check Out This Week

5/5/2015 11:19am EDT
Mumford & Sons Leads Albums To Check Out
April was a slower month for new album releases across the board. It wasn’t quite like “watching paint dry,” but there was an absence of blockbuster releases with staying power. A perfect example of the lack of staying power – Shawn Mendes’ Handwritten debuted at #1 and proceeded to fall to #17 the following week. May is much more promising from the jump, as there are many notable releases dropping on an off-cycle May 4 (Monday) release date. Leading the charge is Mumford & Sons, but they are by no means the sole attraction this week.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson Takes Pop Star Ciara To White House D
Well, here's a celebrity relationship no one saw coming.

Russell Wilson scored some points with fans for taking his grandmother to the White House Correspondents' Dinner recently, but he had a different woman on his arm when he returned to the White House three days later: pop star Ciara.

Wilson was invited back to the White House for President Barack Obama's Japanese state dinner. (Because that makes sense, right? But I digress.)

Wilson and Ciara have apparently been dating for a little while, but this was their coming out appearance.

The Grammy Awards are music's biggest event of the year, and stars flooded the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, showing off their sexy (and not-so-sexy) looks on the red carpet.

Actress Paula Patton took a risk by wearing a zebra print dress featuring two lion heads growling at her neckline. Robin Thicke's wife got a lot of attention for the dress - but not in a good way. She tops our list of the worst dressed at the 56th annual event.

Pharrell Williams also made quite a statement by showing up in a giant hat, which many compared to the Arby's logo.

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

12/27/2013 6:30pm EST
Beyonce
It truly saddens me to see R&B, a personal favorite style of music, in a state of uncertainty.  2013 found the numbers of R&B down considerably, a trend that is consistent year in and year out. Save for a select few commercial bright spots (led by an unexpected Beyoncé album), R&B only dented the charts. Even so, finding 25 albums with some significance wasn’t difficult to do.  Sure, some of the lowest ranked albums have their flaws, but each has some reason for being selected.  Enjoy!

Ciara
The R&B songstress hailing from Atlanta, Georgia is back again slamming us with her fifth album since her debut back in 2004. I am talking about none other than the “Goodies” singer, herself! Ciara has seen many ups and downs in her career, but her newest song “I’m Out feat. Nicki Minaj” is definitely rising fast! “Ladies it’s your song” are the lyrics that start of this club-banger and for all the rest of the ladies out there, I’ve named “I’m Out” as this week’s Pop Topper of the Week!

No, Ciara doesn’t go at this song alone. She and her new bestie, Nicki Minaj, have teamed up again (what...

Female Celebrities That Have Not Given Into The Big Booty Craze

Rihanna
Opinion: Television personalities, female-rappers, and video vixens love toting around big derrieres.  This trend seems to have grown, no pun intended, tremendously in the last 10 years as rap music and their videos have become more popular and quite famous for advertising "big-booty" girls.  While some women have injected, implanted, and padded their average or flat-in-the-back frames, others seem to be staying true to their microscopic behinds.

On Tuesday, Mediatakeout.com, released a video of Rihanna twerking--a dance that women perform to make their butts jiggle.  The singer doesn't le...

I'm not sure what to call Ciara's outfit. Is it a t-shirt on top of a pillow case on top of a dress shirt? This is apparently from Givenchy’s Spring 2013 Menswear Collection, but we don't think any guy could pul...
