The Top 10 VMA Performances of All Time

August 25th, 2014 2:10pm EDT
The Top 10 VMA Performances of All Time
The MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) generate more controversy than most other award shows. Some are epic, and many are epic fails. But there are always several that stand the test of time.

Many of today's music legends made their mark during the awards and in turn, made history. From Madonna to Britney to Justin Timberlake, here are the Top 10 VMA Performances of All Time:

10. Justin Timberlake, Medley 2013

It was the performance of the evening and clearly more classy than the bump and grind of Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke. Timberlake's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard honor was a well-des...

MTV VMAs Flashback: Miley Cyrus & Robin Thicke Cause Controversy In 2013

August 24th, 2014 4:07pm EDT
Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus
Sure, it was just a year ago, but Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke had people talking for months last year following their performance of Thicke's hit "Blurred Lines" at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Their raunchy performance together (which may or may not have set the wheels in motion for Thicke's 2014 split from wife Paula Patton), which featured lots of "twerking" and Miley even grinding on Thicke's crotch, caused a huge controversy over what kids should be seeing on television.

This year, the Parent's Television Council (PTC) has asked MTV to tone things down, but it sounds like those reque...

10 Most Regrettable Albums Of 2014

10 Most Regrettable Albums Of 2014
Have you ever had the reaction OMG – or maybe better yet, OMFG? (The answer should be “like totally” because it’s rhetorical). Well, some poorly conceived albums in 2014 brought the same sort of personal reaction. Sometimes albums – specifically the music on them – are like incredible beings that can satisfy and fulfill. And then other times, albums leave you wishing you hadn’t invested the time and/or the money.

The following albums, regardless of commercial success or non-success struck out – four strikes if possible. In other words – do NOT “pass go and collect $200.”

Flop-tastic: 10 Biggest Album Flops of 2014 (So Far)
“You win some, you lose some.” The ten musicians on this particular list have lost some serious games – actually, they’ve lost some serious album sales. What’s most shocking are some of the big names on this list who have to take that 'walk of shame' following an underachieving album. SMH!

1) Mariah Carey, Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse (Def Jam)

‘Epic fail’ is the best way to describe the tepid performance of Mariah Carey’s awkwardly titled Me. I Am Mariah. After selling just 58,000 copies its first week, Me has safely secured the title of worst selling album of Carey’s ...

It's Finally Over For Robin Thicke And Paula Patton

July 24th, 2014 3:52pm EDT
Robin Thicke
If a house listing and recent reports are anything to go by, it appears Robin Thicke is finally throwing in the towel to get back with his estranged wife Paula Patton.

Variety reported earlier this week the pair's giant, 3,158 square foot home was listed for $2.9 million and change. Robin's father and TV star Alan Thicke bought the property back in 1990 for just under $1 million.

Many took the listing as the sign the two were going to make their split official, although it could also be preparation for Robin's lower income. The singer's recent album Paula, named after Patton, has flopped ...

12 Best Robin Thicke Songs
Everybody has been giving Robin Thicke grief – ‘the devil’ if you will – and justifiably so. As infectious and beloved as “Blurred Lines” was in 2013, riding high for 12 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, everyone kind of had bones to pick with the R&B singer. Questions ranged from whether Thicke copped the song from the legendary Marvin Gaye to the lyrics referencing rape and misogyny. Furthermore, the video clip with nude models did little to discourage the alleged objectification of women.

Then add to the mix the separation with Paula Patton and the god-awful reaction al...

Trey Songz Tops With ‘Trigga’: This Week in Music
Trey Songz once more has reason to celebrate. Despite selling just 105,000 copies of sixth album Trigga, a downgrade from his previous three LPs Chapter V, Passion, Pain & Pleasure, and breakout album Ready, it did secure the artist another #1 album. That’s right –Trey Songz took his salacious, libidinous, and hypersexual Trigga to the penthouse. #Swag.

To add more sweetness to Trey’s bittersweet numbers are three positive takeaways. The first is that Trey Songz far outclassed the second place album, Ed Sheeran’s former chart topper X by nearly doubling it up in sales (105,000 > 53,...

If you had one dollar for every copy of Robin Thicke's Paula (review) sold in the United Kingdom, you wouldn't be able to cover this month's rent.

The anticipated follow-up to the worldwide hit album Blurred Lines was altered when Thicke and Paula Patton divorced after several years of marriage. The album became an apology and plea to get her back, with Thicke dedicated songs to his estranged wife during live performances.

The United Kingdom wasn't buying it, literally. According to several reports, including one from The Independent, the album sold a mere 530 copies in its first week sin...

One of the interviewers admitted he thought their breakup was a PR stunt for the upcoming album, which centers around Thicke and Patton's split and included dozens of pleas for her to take him back. Thick said, “I try to keep most of that private, but I haven't seen her for four months... She's the best girl in the world, a great mother and s...

Review: Robin Thicke Sounds Desperate On 'Paula'

July 2nd, 2014 8:00am EDT
Robin Thicke - Paula
Not even a full year after Blurred Lines dropped, R&B artist Robin Thicke returns with a follow-up album, entitled Paula. Paula, named after Thicke’s wife, Paula Patton (with whom he is currently separated from), serves the role of heartbreak, reconciliation, and anachronistic retro-soul album. In other words, Paula is a 'jack of all trades' and a 'master of none.' Honestly, the only thing Paula masters is being a desperate, bore-fest.

Paula begins off-putting with "My Fantasy," a mix somewhere between Latin-jazz and adult contemporary R&B. The sound isn’t far-fetched for Thicke; it...

Robin Thicke's '#AskThicke' Completely Backfires On Twitter

Robin Thicke and VH1 had the brilliant idea of holding an interview with all of the users on Twitter. What could possibly go wrong?

Within moments of VH1 promoting their tweet, users pounced to ask Thicke about the perceived misogynistic themes of his song Blurred Lines and the music video attached to it featuring nude women. One of the first responses was "Why are you a f--king creeper? Why are you stalking your ex through media? Why do you promote rape culture?"

It just got worse from there.

On a scale of R. Kelly to Phil Spector, how do you intend to "Get Her Back?" #AskThicke

Robin Thicke isn't hiding anything in the music video for Get Her Back, a not-so-subtle plea for a reunion with his estranged wife Paula Patton.

During the music video, text messages between two parties (representing Patton and Thicke) appear on the screen. “Paula” writes things such as "I kept trying to warn you you were pushing me too far," and, "You drink too much. You embarrassed me." Responses from Robin include "I hate myself," and, "I wrote a whole album about you." Robin's upcoming album is titled Paula.

The song is pretty catchy, despite the depressing topic. It features a funk...

Romantic Or Desperate? Robin Thicke Names Next Album 'Paula'

June 12th, 2014 11:47am EDT

Robin Thicke has been begging Paula Patton to take him back for some time, but now he might be going a little overboard: he's naming his next album Paula.

Rap-Up reports the singer named his seventh album after his ex-wife and at least one song will be directly referencing his attempts to get back into her good graces, titled Get Her Back.

Since the former highschool sweethearts split, Thicke has been spending quite a bit of time attempting to win over Patton. In February he began dedicating live performances of Lost Without U to Paula, telling one audience, "For y'all that don't know me ...
