Keke Palmer
Singer/actress Keke Palmer has signed up to play Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas in an upcoming biopic about TLC.

Roger Taylor
Queen's drummer Roger Taylor has no plans to follow the holographic craze by performing with an image of late singer Freddie Mercury, insisting, "It's the real one or no hologram for me."

Since deceased rapper Tupac Shakur sensationally appeared as a hologram at last month's Coachella festival, there have been reports of other late music stars set to receive the same technological treatment - including TLC star Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes.

However, drummer Taylor isn't resurrecting his flamboyant former frontman, who died in 1991.

Hot Legs: Sugababes Singer Jade Ewan Struts Her Stuff

August 15th, 2010 2:41pm EDT
Sugababes
They're called the Sugababes, but as far as we can tell there's only one babe.

Maybe they should rethink their name? New member Jade Ewan recently showed off her long, lean legs at a music festival in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal.

Bandmates Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah also took the stage, but leggy Jade definitely outshone her singing partners.

The band just revealed they will start work on a new album next week. The disc will be the first with new member Jade, who rerecorded Keisha Buchanan's vocals on their previous release "Sweet 7" after being drafted into the band in September.

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

Prima J Opening For Danity Kane Through July

Prima J
The name of their debut single may be "Rock Star," but the two cousins that make up Prima J are everything but. In fact, Jessica and Janelle Martinez are so down-to-earth, it seems just as odd that their song is the lead track from the Bratz™ Motion Picture Soundtrack (released by Geffen Records July 31st, with the movie following August 3). Far from precocious and everything but bratty, the pair are actually a real-life version of the comradarie and competitive edge captured in the movie.

Their recent discovery and success aside, Jessica and Janelle still can't believe that they've n...

Top 20 Kid Shows From The 80s & 90s

Remember the innocence of childhood? The birthday parties. The water gun fights. The sleep overs. Oh, and the television shows! This is a countdown of the top 20 kids shows from the mid 80s and mid 90s. There are some exceptions, though, and they are as follows:

Though excellent shows, programs such as Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Sesame Street, and "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" are absent from this list. This isn’t just because they premiered decades ago but also because their target demographic was roughly children six and under, rather than kids aged seven to fifteen, which this coun...

Outkast: In a Class of Their Own

March 27th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
Outkast
As one of the hottest rap groups out today, Outkast has etched a mark in hip-hop history as perhaps the best rap group ever. They're in fair competition, however, with groups like A Tribe Called Quest and EPMD riding dutch. These groups, by coincidence, never took to transforming the perceptions of what many outside the South considered as nothing special into worthy rhyme sayers, putting Atlanta on its back and giving listeners something to nod to.

Outkast's Andre 3000 and Big Boi came together as a group in 1991 and signed to Laface Records in 1992. They were the label's first hip-h...

If Trouble was Akon's ode to redemption (before his music career took off he served time for car theft), Konvicted picks up at rebirth. His mission now is to reinvent himself through his salvation - music.

In an age when everything from fashion to furniture reeks of prefabrication, it is rare to find a genuine realness even in soul music. As the one genre of music that should send shivers through ones body while still managing to touch your heart, much of today's R&B feels as though more thought has gone into the choreography than the songs. And then, there is Shareefa.

The first soul woman signed to Disturbing the Peace/Def Jam, this Newark, New Jersey native introduces her special realness on the debut disc Point of No Return. Recruiting studio vets Chucky Thompson, Salaam Remi (How Go...
