15 Stars Who Got Naked In Music Videos

October 22nd, 2013 8:00pm EDT
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...

Marianas Trench

Matt Damon Had Special Music Interests While Filming 'We Bought A Zoo'

August 6th, 2011 10:30am EDT
Matt Damon
Matt Damon's new movie "We Bought A Zoo" was a very musical experience because he insisted director Cameron Crowe play Sigur Ros star Jonsi's soundtrack tunes on the set.

In the film, Damon plays real-life widower Benjamin Mee, who brought a dilapidated zoo back to life in honor of his late wife - and he found the Icelandic star's music, and other tunes Crowe played on the set, helpful for his character building.

Crowe tells WENN, "We played Jonsi's music a lot in the making of the movie, along with some Pearl Jam, too, and Neil Young. Matt Damon is a big fan of all this music, so we lite...

The 25 Most Important Albums Of The Decade

December 23rd, 2009 11:43am EST
Most Important Albums of the Decade
Pitchfork and Rolling Stone and Spin and all those other outlets have their lists of the best albums of the decade, and you know what? I'm going to let them. There's no point in me trying to come up with that list because there were so many great records to choose from. Who's to say that The Strokes' Is This It? was better than Muse's Absolution or any album by Arcade Fire? You can't! You can't! Best albums are invariably marked by an editor's (or staff's) preference in music. But what about qualifying the most important? I can tell you that Bob Dylan's Modern Times was probably the best re...
