11 Songs That Break Barriers
Sometimes, you have to take a stand. Taking a stand isn’t always a popular move, nor is it always personally lucrative.

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Katy Perry, Coldplay and Rihanna have all reportedly been approached by the National Football League to possibly perform during halftime of Super Bowl XLIX on Feb. 1, 2015. But there's a catch.

The NFL, according to the Wall Street Journal, wants this year's performers to pay to put on their act for millions of TV viewers around the globe.

The league, which only gets a measly $4 million for 30 seconds of ad time during the big game, thinks artists should have to give them a cut of their post-performance profits from touring and boosted album sales following the performance.
