John Legend's All of Me video brought love and career full circle

October 11th, 2013 3:00am EDT
John Legend
John Legend wanted to bring his career and love life "full circle" with his sexy new video for All Of Me because director Nabil was the same person to introduce the star to his new wife Chrissy Teigen.

The R&B singer wrote the ballad for the supermodel and recruited his then-fiancee to feature as his onscreen love interest when they shot the black and white promo in Italy, days before they wed last month (Sep13).

In the film, the couple appear semi-naked in bed and even strip off for a steamy shower scene, while also featuring some photos from their Lake Como nuptials - and Legend was mor...

Playlist: 5 Favorite September 2013 Albums

September 30th, 2013 2:15pm EDT
Janelle Monae
September 2013 yielded a number of notable new music releases. As a blogger, music journalist and critic, I found it incredibly difficult to make the time to listen to the over abundance of music provided. That said, I am so glad for there to be an over abundance as opposed to an under-abundance. While all of the albums I listened to left me with something special and a new jam to add to my playlists on my iPod, I chose five albums that stuck with me for various reasons.  If you haven’t partaken of these, you should definitely check them out!

Kanye West and rant #1,001

Silly me for thinking that Kanye was a reformed rapper after watching him smile from ear-to-ear on his future mother-in-law, Kris Jenner’s, talk show. A video of Kanye West criticizing “culture vultures” (my new favorite term) that has went viral reassures many of us that the old Kanye is still around.

Will R&B Ever Recover From Sales Inconsistencies?

September 10th, 2013 7:30pm EDT
John Legend
On Tuesday, September 3, 2013, I felt reassured about the output of R&B music.  As perused the CD aisle at the local Best Buy, I felt excited to see the majority of new releases were R&B (Neko Case and Nine Inch Nails among exemptions).  That observation should be shocking in itself.  This included established artists like John Legend, Jaheim, and Raheem DeVaughn, as well as rising artists in Tamar Braxton (a ‘reintroduction’ you might say) and Ariana Grande (a pop/R&B blend).  From my perspective, being an R&B lover who’s at his best singing along with a slow jam, I was happy to see such a...

Review: John Legend, 'Love In The Future'

September 5th, 2013 2:30pm EDT
John Legend
The gap between John Legend‘s solo albums has been a staggering five years! UGH! Sure, we haven’t been without those soulful pipes completely, but Evolver was the last ‘Legend’ album itself.  And arguably on that effort, Legend wasn’t even his traditional self necessarily, eschewing neo-soul for the more trendy contemporary R&B of the time.  Now it’s 2013 and neo-soul has been six-feet under – nobody’s doing it anymore, much to my chagrin.  Another Evolver certainly wasn’t the proper direction for a singer who thrives from his gospel-infused runs, regardless whether “Green Light” was a welc...

"I've got to be honest," she says, "I have such bad anxiety that sometimes I don't believe I've even taken the pill in the morning!"

Stars braved the steamy temperatures in Las Vegas to celebrate music at the Billboard Music Awards and show off the latest styles. However, not everyone was up to the task - here are the best and worst dressed at the Billboard Music Awards.

Worst: We want to give Jason Derulo props for being a little outside the box with the dotted suit, but it looks like he forgot a tie or a vest or something so we don't h...

2012 Grammy Awards
The 2012 Grammy Awards will forever be remembered for one reason: the event took place the night after the music industry lost one of their biggest stars in an untimely fashion: Whitney Houston.

Despite the somber undertones of host LL Cool J's opening prayer for the late singer and a rousing performance of her hit song "I Will Always Love You" by Jennifer Hudson; the night was about the music and the attitude that the show must go on.

As always with award shows, the night is also about the fashion. While many stars wore black - perhaps in honor of the late Houston - many stars let the c...

Legend reportedly promised to listen to the song but he never got back to Stokes, who forgot all about his Legend-ary meeting until he heard a track called "Maxine's Interlude" in 2006.

The songwriter insists the track is a little too similar to his song "Where Are You Now?...
