'Katy Perry Uncensored Raw Talent'
Every musician’s journey is different, and it’s safe to say that a lot’s changed since 2001 for Katy Perry. Videographer Jim Standridge recently discovered some throwback footage he took of the pop star back when she was a 16 year-old Christian singer/songwriter out on her first tour, and it’s pretty fascinating stuff. She’s young, she’s adorable, and she’s also hella talented. Check out the video to see what young Katy Perry was workin’ with!
One Direction played a concert at Edward Jones Dome this week and during their performance, Harry Styles decided rep St. Louis Rams player Michael Sam by wearing his jersey on stage. Sam, as you should be well aware, is the first openly gay player in the NFL and he is currently working hard on pre-season training with the Rams. Harry, obvs, is a fan and he wanted to let the world know it. Click below to see Harry on stage in his Michael Sam jersey and read some happy tweets about Harry‘s support of Michael. More »
So many 'What am I looking at?' moments, so little time...
First off, Amber Rose took to Instagram to let the world know that absolutely “no f—s were given,” in case you were curious. Her husband Wiz Khalifa wore a shirt promoting the prevention of suicide, which I thought was cool—but I’m sure nobody in attendance caught that. Looks I loved include Iggy Azalea‘s, Nicki Minaj‘s and… well.. Amber Rose. LMAO. Peep the gallery for more!

But was it really an accident...?
Listen, Trent is right. There’s really only one thing you need to see from last night’s MTV VMAs, and that’s Beyoncé and Blue Ivy performing… mainly Blue Ivy. But everyone is going to be talking about Nicki Minaj‘s massive wardrobe malfunction and I want you to be informed. So, I’m sitting there watching the show, and after performing Anaconda, Nicki comes back out to finish up Bang Bang with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. The entire time she’s clasping her dress and looking crazy — I actually thought she was planning some sort of big reveal and we were all about to see EVERYTHING (ya never know with the VMAs). But yeah, not so much. Click inside for more! UPDATE: Is it possible that the “wardrobe malfunction” was completely STAGED?!
But, Blue Ivy dancing to Mama Bey's music is something you need to see, too
A lot of things happened during the live broadcast of the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards and, unfortunately, not a lot of it is really all that newsworthy or exciting. But MTV wisely decided to save the best for last and had Beyoncé close the show with a stunning 17+ minute performance of a string of hit songs before she was presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award — by her husband Jay Z and baby girl Blue Ivy! OMG. Bey‘s performance was EV.ERY.THIN.G IN. THE. WORLD. Just, g-damn, g-damn. Click the embed above to watch Beyoncé‘s epic VMAs performance and then click below to watch an animated gif of Blue Ivy dancing to Beyoncé‘s ****Flawless. OMG. I am slayed by that baby girl. Ugh.

So, last night Iggy Azalea performed a short mini-concert at The Avalon here in LA as a pre-show warm up for the MTV Video Music Awards and for the most part, the show went off without a hitch … except for the part where Iggy fall her ass off the stage during her live performance of Fancy (with Charli XCX). As you can see above, Iggy walks backwards during her performance until she walked right off the stage. As soon as word spread on social media that she fell off stage, the hashtag #PoorIggy started to make the rounds. Bless. Thankfully, she wasn’t hurt and she bounced back and kept on performing like a pro. Check out the video above and see how a real boss lady handles a little stage mishap like this.
That Ish Cray Of-The-Day
Oh. Helllll. Nawwwllll. Why is that every time a wild animal does something that is completely normal for a wild animal, everyone’s all like, “I can’t believe that wild animal did something wild!” OMG. So. We now know that Nicki Minaj was planning to perform her hit song/video Anaconda at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, but rehearsals haven’t been going so smoothly. And by ‘haven’t been going so smoothly’ I mean that one of her backup dancers straight up got bitten by a 6-foot-long boa constrictor. I repeat: Oh. Hell. Nawl. Click inside for more.
Just sit back and unwind
Will Smith, the artist formerly known as The Fresh Prince, and his former musical partner DJ Jazzy Jeff (né Jeffrey Allen Townes) got together in Las Vegas this weekend for an impromptu live performance of their hit 1991 song Summertime. Will jumped up on stage to hype up the crowd under the scorching LV sun, took off his shirt and then busted out a live performance of the song. Click the embed above to watch the performance … which doesn’t start until after 2 minutes of Will Smith just talking about whatever on stage. It’s a fun clip, tho. Please enjoy.
She's singing that 'Kill Bill' song and I LOVE IT!!!
Let me tell you—I was all prepared to roll my eyes at yet another Beyoncé/Jay Z whatever, but this is different. I don’t know who had the brilliant idea for Bey to sing Bang Bang (which I will always and forever associate with Kill Bill), but it opens up the trailer and it’s perfection. The rest of this just looks super-dope. Not all of us can be Trent, so we’ll have to settle for the HBO special. I’m personally psyched to experience On The Run from my home. Will you be tuning in?
