That's Madonna performing "Like a Virgin" last week during an MDNA Tour stop in Berlin with tears streaming down her face. Why are tears streaming down her face? I don't know. She'd performed this song live for audience in this ballad style almost a dozen times at this point, and it doesn't seem that the song grabbed her like it did during this performance. (In other words, this doesn't seem to be a cry-every-night-at-the-same-exact-part Janet Jackson "Again" scenario.)
Iggy Azalea almost wasn't Internet-famous. Last summer, the native Australian was living in Los Angeles, and after what was supposed to be two weeks in Miami at age 16 had turned into five years spent in four cities throughout the states, she was down to the last of her savings. She had one shot left, and so she used that money to film the music video for "PU$$Y," a song off her first mixtape.
It's not often news when 91-year-old people go to the hospital with a bladder infection, but it is when they're royalty. Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was "admitted to hospital" (that's how they say it) today, hours before the Queen's jubilee concert. He was said to be "disappointed" to be missing it.
When people respond to modern dance music, chances are they are responding to drops. A drop happens when the beat comes back after temporarily exiting the sound design. In drop-fueled dance music, this happens every few minutes — the beat asserts itself, people freak out, their interest wanes, the song breaks down, the beat dissolves and then drops back in, asserting itself all over again, making people freak out all over again. And over and over and over again.
You know that I love a time-lapse video, so how could I resist one of the ludicrous rich people's druggie playground that is Burning Man? Sure, this thing is more played out than rolling around on E in the desert, but there's something great about watching a bustling city come together over the course of a few days and then putter out.
Which of the following is the correct response to this video of Chris Brown pantomiming sex, then licking a lady's face and knee?
Four concertgoers at Belgium's Pukkelpop Music Festival lost their lives today when the festival's main stage collapsed in a strong storm. This is the third such incident this summer, after storms took out stages in Ottawa and Indiana, the latter killing five people. Either the stages are getting weaker, or the storms are getting stronger.
In this video, a polyester lingerie-clad Britney Spears wraps a hot pink boa, then her legs, around the neck of a grinning and handcuffed Pauly D from Jersey Shore. See the pop star work out various childhood traumas on the strange, shellacked gremlin. Listen to screaming female youths replicating the sound your stovetop tea kettle makes when it boils.
Most likely, Nicki Minaj won't fall into obscurity anytime soon, but remember the days when she was everywhere? Friday's appearance on Good Morning America-with its accompanying wardrobe malfunction-rekindled our love for Minaj and her beyond-crazy outfits that often highlight her, er, assets. So lest you forget what it looks like, here's a rundown of the ten most ridiculous costumes that Nicki Minaj's butt has ever worn. They're in no particular order, because judging what someone's rear-end looks like in spandex is a pretty subjective matter. Click photos to enlarge.
