The Top 10 Teen Pop Stars from the 90s

December 14th, 2014 5:30pm EST
The Top 10 Teen Pop Stars from the 90s: Where Are They Now?
The lead single off of NSYNC's third and final album Celebrity back in 2001 was called "Pop". From the start, it seemed like even the boy band's biggest star knew the era that had made NSYNC one of the biggest powerhouses in music was coming to an end.

"Sick and tired of hearing all these people talk about," sang lead singer Justin Timberlake, "What's the deal with this pop life and when's it gonna fade out?"

While the song itself used some wishful thinking in its response to that question, the real answer was: in about a year.

NSYNC went on a "temporary hiatus" in 2002 and never returne...

Music And Television Superstars That Came From Boy Bands

November 22nd, 2014 7:00pm EST
9 Music And Television Superstars That Came From Boy Bands
Most boy bands follow a distinct formula. They are brought together by a rich music producer of sorts and taught to sing, dance synchronically and of course, use a multitude of hair products. After progressively releasing three popular albums, they need to "take a break" and soon, their break becomes a longstanding hiatus. Eventually they reunite for a big comeback show, but their fans have moved on and they disappear into the sunset again.

Very few music superstars are able to break out of the boy band mold and make it big in the world of music. A select few become music legends. These 9 ...

9 Classic Memorable Reality TV Moments: From Innocent To Cruel

9 Classic Memorable Reality TV Moments: From Innocent To Cruel
The one thing about reality television is that for the most part, it is completely unscripted (or so the networks would like us to believe.) What happens on camera is usually a reaction to something another cast member did and therefore, causes lots of juicy ammunition for others to keep the perpetual fires lit. Reality has become a hotbed of catcalls, catfights, bad behavior and image-wrecking scenarios. Still, there are some bright lights in the genre. Some of the best reality show moments have made us cry, held back our disbelief and ran us straight to social media to talk about it with ...

Pop Topper Of The Week: 98 Degrees - 'Microphone'

May 11th, 2013 10:00am EDT
98 Degrees
What do Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, and Mariah Carey have in common? They all are artists who took a longer-than-expected hiatus from the music industry to pursue other careers (or raise children). From these long breaks, these musicians have been able to pop back into the music scene and are doing surprisingly well.

So it seems like legendary pop acts are in, right? But of course! As pop fanatics, we never miss an old icon coming back into the scene (I mean, look at Madonna), and that is why we’ve named “Microphone” by 98° as the Pop Topper of the Week!

Nick Lachey Claims Kim Kardashian Tipped Off The Paparazzi About Their Movie Date

Nick Lachey & Kim Kardashian
After divorcing Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey briefly dated Kim Kardashian back in 2006. In a new interview with Details magazine, the singer opens up about how the reality star basically used him to get famous.

At the time, Kardashian was barely a blip on the radar. She was a celebrity stylist and known for being friends with socialite Paris Hilton.

Lachey, 39, told Details: "Let's just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside."

So that means Kardashian called the paparazzi to alert them of he...

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...
