Miley Cyrus surprised her fans at the end of the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night by dropping a new album.

The 22-year-old singer hosted this year's event and closed up shop by announcing the album and that it would be streaming for free at her website. The 23-track album was created with some help from Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne and producer Mike Will Made It, who produced her "Bangerz" album.

Despite claims that she wouldn't be performing at this year's VMAs, Miley ended the show with a performance of new single "Dooo It," and was joined by dozens of drag queen dancers...

Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde has come under fire after comments she made about rape in a Britain's Sunday Times this weekend.

The singer, 63, revealed that when she was 21 she was raped by a motorcycle gang member in her native Ohio. He offered to bring her to a party but took her to an empty warehouse instead and threatened to hurt her if she didn't do what he said.

And she says it's her own fault that it happened.

"Technically speaking, however you want to look at it, this was all my doing and I take full responsibility," she told the paper while promoting her new memoir, Reckless:...

Disturbed Tops Billboard 200

Disturbed Return To a Familiar Place – No. 1 On The Billboard 20
Disturbed shocked the world this week – NOT! The popular rock band debuted at #1 for a fifth straight time with Immortalized, their first new album in five years. The numbers weren’t sexy per se, but the 98,000 units were enough to seal the deal atop the Billboard 200. Still, isn’t it a shame that no album was able to move 100,000 units for a second straight week? It’s not 42,000 units level of tepidness that Descendants endured, but still.

Disturbed weren’t the only debuts to land within the top 10 of the Billboard 200. Country singer Kip Moore quietly bows fourth with Wild Ones to th...

Nicki Minaj landed the trophy for Best Hip-Hop Video for her single "Anaconda" at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, and after joking around with the crowd and then telling her fans to follow their dreams she thanked her pastor, and everything seemed nice.

2015 VMAs Fashion: Stars Bare Lots Of Skin, Flaunt Their Curves
The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. The show allows singers to let loose when it comes to what they wear -- and they often wear very little.

Taylor Swift was actually one of the more conservative stars from the 2015 event, donning colorful sequined, hounds tooth pants and a matching crop top. Some have likened her look to pajama pants, but we think it's sharp!

She took home awards for Video Of The Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. She and Nicki Minaj showed there was no bad blood between them after singing together on stage.
