Featured Beyoncé stories

This was a week crammed full of great videos, way too many to fit onto this list. But my favorite subplot was this: Taylor Swift drummed up weeks of hype and probably spent a fortune to make her kung-fu feminist G.I. Joe cameo party and to unveil it in the biggest way possible for a… More »

In this era of ever-diminishing music sales, there are weeks when an album squeaks into the #1 spot because there’s no legitimate competition. This was not one of those weeks. Zac Brown Band’s Jekyll + Hyde forcefully seized the top spot, racking up 228,000 equivalent units — one of the best sales frames of the… More »

The Roast Of Justin Bieber was tough to sit through — almost as tough as the transition from teen idol to grownup pop star Bieber is trying to pull off. For every Justin Timberlake there are many Jordan Knights, and Bieber risks becoming the next Aaron Carter if he can’t get back to making headline… More »

Here Are The 2015 MTV VMA Nominations

Who could’ve predicted that after wagging a foam finger all over Robin Thicke, two years later Miley Cyrus would end up hosting the VMAs? Guess it’s not that surprising, but it certainly guarantees a good show, which is the whole point of the VMAs, anyway. What isn’t the least bit surprising is that Taylor Swift… More »

Nicki Minaj – “Feeling Myself” (Feat. Beyoncé) Video

Finally, Tidal gives us something we really want: the video for Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé’s Pinkprint collab “Feeling Myself.” As Complex points out, it premiered exclusively on Tidal, but like Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” video, it leaked shortly after. “American Oxygen” was later replaced by an official YouTube stream, as this probably will be too. For… More »

Beyoncé And Jay Z Album Coming To Tidal, Says DJ Skee

Tidal arrived on the scene as a lost cause, and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. They’ve failed to gain traction with users, and have resorted to gimmicky marketing tactics to hold onto the ones they have.

Watch Beyoncé Debut “Die With You” In A Home Movie Shot By Jay Z

The Week In Pop: What’s Next For Zayn Malik, One Direction, And The World?

Zayn Malik’s departure from One Direction was announced the only way it could be in 2015, via an official statement on the group’s Facebook page.

Kid Rock Doesn’t Get Beyoncé: Where’s Her “Sweet Home Alabama”?

Oh, Kid Rock. In a new Rolling Stone profile terrifyingly called “The Killer Inside Kid Rock,” our favorite love-to-hate glass dildo recipient spews his stereotypical red-state, misogynistic bullshit.
