John Legend has disagreements with Kanye West.
The 35-year-old singer-songwriter has worked with his producer Kanye West on all four of his albums and claims they constantly argue over what would work best and says he's sometimes forced to go against the rappers wishes.
He said: "We always have differences of opinion.
"We try to get to a place where we agree on a song, but occasionally I put something on that I love and Kanye isn't too fond of."
The 'All of Me' hitmaker admitted however that he thinks people are too quick to judge the 'Yeezus' star - who is engaged to Kim Kardashian and is ...

John Legend thinks Miley Cyrus is "harmless".
The 35-year-old singer feels critics are overacting when it comes to the 'Wrecking Ball' singer, who gyrates and simulates sex acts during her 'Bangerz' tour, after parents described her live shows as "soft porn".
John said: "I think it's relatively harmless - she's not doing anything dangerous.
"She's just making decisions about how she wants to portray herself sexually and physically. "It's working for her at the moment."
The 'All of Me' hitmaker thinks it's difficult for child stars being under so much pressure and people shouldn't be too...

The 51 Best Albums Of 2013 - What Made Your List?

December 30th, 2013 6:00pm EST
Daft Punk
Ranking the very best albums of any year is incredibly difficult; there are always misses. 2013 was filled with some triumphant musical moments, though not all of their parent albums were necessarily ‘worthy’ of being considered the best of the year. Because of various factors, this list has its surprises and like any album reviewed, its triumphs and flaws. One thing’s for sure – the top ten to fifteen albums are pretty close to the cream of the crop from my perspective. Here are the 50 (+1) best albums of 2013!

But a day later she admitted that she had already thrown in the towel.

25 Best R&B Albums Of 2013

December 27th, 2013 6:30pm EST
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!

Thoughts On The 56th Annual Grammy Nominations

December 9th, 2013 8:50pm EST
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
The Grammys are like a musician’s Super Bowl, even if the nominations and victorious artists are flawed.  I won’t lie to you, I complain every year that someone won a Grammy that didn’t deserve it while someone else was snubbed. Just last year, during the 55th Annual Grammys, I lobbied hard for Frank Ocean (looking back, I have reservations now) while Mumford & Sons walked out with the Album of the Year trophy.  The year that Taylor Swift won for Fearless, my girl Beyoncé was on a roll until the coveted Album of the Year award was read.  You get my position though! This year,  I find myself...

Lady Gaga and her longtime manager have parted ways, according to new reports.

Troy Carter has been the business mind behind the pop superstar since he was recruited to handle her in 2007.

12 Songs For Lovers – A Soundtrack That Will Boost Any Relationship

October 26th, 2013 4:00pm EDT
Janelle featuring Miguel primetime
Love songs can be so touching and certainly can propel any relationship (and in some cases hookups).  I have constructed a list of 12 ‘love’ songs that have the emotional and physical connection between lovers in mind… or something like that!  I attempted to make some narrative, but like most soundtracks, they’re all over the place anyways!

Track 1

Raheem DeVaughn, “Complicated”

(A Place Called Love Land)

As we know, no one relationship is ‘cut and dry’ by any means; all are their own diverse entity.  Among Raheem DeVaughn’s best tracks on his underrated indie-R&B album A Place Called L...

15 Stars Who Got Naked In Music Videos

Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus took it all off for her "Wrecking Ball" video, swinging nude -- save for a pair of work boots -- on the title object. She received plenty of flak for the racy video, most likely because of her age and the fact that she's a role model for millions of young girls.

But she's definitely not the first to bare all in a music short, plenty of other artists have either gone nude or had a model, a girlfriend -- even a model girlfriend -- strip down for one of their videos.

See who else shed their clothes in the name of art after the jump...

Fashion Fails: Kimberly Wyatt, Asa Butterfield, John Legend, More

Kimberly Wyatt
It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

Kimberly Wyatt wore this mishmash dress to the Pride of Britain awards, but there's no pride in wearing such a bizarre outfit. Her purse looks like a glittery Christmas card, on top of it all.

Ashley Roberts wore this questionable pair of overalls featuring a repeated face of a lion. One would think she was going for a Goth look with her black nails, but she retains her light hair and paints her lips a shocking red.

R&B star John Legend and model Chrissy Teigen have revealed they tied the knot in a New York City courthouse before jetting off to Italy for their lavish Lake Como nuptials.

2013 Album Playlist: Favorites, Least Favorites, and Honorable Mentions - Part 1

October 11th, 2013 9:15pm EDT
The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
As I look over my 2013 playlist from my iPod, I realize I have listened to numerous albums this year.  In fact, the amount of music that my ears have consumed and my pen has analyzed is pretty scary…and I still missed lots of albums! SMH! Some were special, some made me cringe, and some fell somewhere in between the two extremes.  As difficult as it was, as of October 7, 2013, I have compiled a list housing my favorites, least favorites, and honorable mentions.  I’m almost certain I’ve slighted someone and I’m sure there will be continual revisions, but for now, here’s what you should’ve sp...
