The Worst Album Covers Of All Time

March 5th, 2013 6:59pm EST
Miley Cyrus Bangerz
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...

Fred Durst
Fred Durst is gearing up to kick two original Limp Bizkit bandmates out of the group, according to his Latvian sidekick DJ Lethal.

Fred Durst
Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst's New Year juice fast is beginning to reap benefits for the rocker - his new diet is helping him think more clearly.

Durst began his fast on January 2 and promised to keep fans up to date on his progress via posts on website Tumblr.com - but the notes quickly became sporadic because the rock star didn't see results immediately.

Now, 10 days in and after a few hungry cheats, the star admits his diet is beginning to pay off.

He writes, "I am about 2 lbs lights (sic) and definitely feeling better internally. My thoughts are clear and inspired."

Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus' version of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" has been named the worst cover ever in a new magazine poll.

Rolling Stone readers voted the teenager's live rendition of the grunge anthem the worst of the worst - ahead of Madonna's take on "American Pie" and Limp Bizkit's cover of "The Who's Behind Blue Eyes."

It's a heartbreaker for Cyrus who recently introduced "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to her live set, telling fans, "I want to play a song by one of the artists that inspired me. Without them (Nirvana) I wouldn't be here. They are the ones who gave me the strength and courage ...

Basically, Limp is not an amphitheatre band. We like to see less seats in front of the stage and more floor filled with fans going bananas. It's just more fun for...

Why Are So Many Rappers Acting?

August 27th, 2008 11:46am EDT
Hancock
This isn't to bash rappers, nor is it to say that these artists aren't allowed to pursue different paths in Hollywood. With so many prominent rappers acquiring roles in big movies though, it begs the question-why?

It's not as if rappers in movies are a new thing. In 1991, Mario Van Peebles cast Ice-T as a cop in "New Jack City," a film that is beloved by many. That same year, director John Singleton cast Ice Cube as a Los Angeles gangbanger in "Boyz N the Hood." These two movies helped open the floodgates for rappers to enter the world of acting.

Soon, Will Smith went from rap...
