When The Shade Hits The Fan: 9 Shady Music Moments From 2015
Musicians have been “throwing shade” at each other for years – understatement. In fact, before it was known colloquially as throwing shade, the esteemed classical composers were literally ripping each other apart with their harsh critiques of one another. Each and every year, new shade is thrown into the hands of the media, which in turn is presented to the people for their entertainment pleasure.

1) Empire (Season 2, Episode 1) Vs. Donnie McClurkin

Even gospel artists – those singing for “the glory of God” are subject to shade. In its disjointed second season premiere, hip-hop soa...

14 Notable Songs That Pose Questions

14 Recent Songs That Ask Questions
Ah, it’s time for a truly deep question: What makes a song a song? Plenty it turns out, and each and every song has its own unique characteristics. Some songs are exclamatory – assertive in title and equally assertive in substance. Some are jubilant, bursting with the exuberance of sharing “joy to the world” and earning a permanent spot in listener’s hearts. Others ask questions in their title and within their lyrics.

So are songs that ask questions questionable themselves? They could be, but ultimately the songs in question simply inquire, sometimes so inquisitively that a series of qu...

Fashion Fails: Worst Dressed Stars At The 2013 Grammys

Worst Grammy Fashion
While music's biggest stars were showing off glamorous fashions and getting all the time in the spotlight, the lesser-known and more obscure stars were clamoring for some of the attention by showing up to the Grammys in some of the most outrageous outfits.

Outfits ran from risque to outrageous, with some blatantly disregarding the memo that Grammy execs sent out last week asking stars to tone things down.

And while the top stars employ teams of their own makeup artists and hair stylists, and have designers eager to get them to show off their fashions; it's the indie artists and not-yet-es...

Electronic dance music star Skrillex is getting animated for a cameo in Disney's forthcoming movie Wreck-It Ralph.

James Maslow
I'll admit it: when I hear the phrase "boy band," I'm one of those people who cringes. But I recently chatted with Big Time Rush member James Maslow, and he changed my mind a little bit.

BTR (consisting of Maslow, Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena, Jr. and Logan Henderson) is a boy band that was born out of the Nickelodeon TV series of the same name. In concept, their origin is reminiscent of The Monkees. Since 2009, the foursome have been acting in the half-hour musical/comedy series as well as releasing two albums. They'll be touring across the country this summer.

The group's origins migh...
