Sure, it’s not quite #TBT yet, but that doesn’t mean we’re not already fondly daydreaming about yesteryear.
With all the excitement surrounding the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards — with upcoming performances due from Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj — we got to thinking about some of the best VMAs red carpet appearances from our pop tarts, past and present.
From Britney Spears to Hilary Duff to Ciara to Avril Lavigne, our favorite pop ladies rocked the red carpet in the fiercest fashions from over a decade ago. And the boys? Don’t worry — Jay-Z, ‘N Sync and Usher held it down too.
Check out the gallery up top of some of our favorite throwback looks from the VMAs. What are some of your fave looks? Let us know in the comments below. More »
has always had a bonkers approach to fashion but the outfits she has rocked on the Asian leg of her ArtRave
tour are next-level insane. And we’re not talking about stage costumes. This is what Gags wears while sightseeing and clubbing. She warned us that her ARTPOP
could mean anything but I still wasn’t ready.
Mother Monster’s otherworldly Asian looks are a stark contrast to the (comparatively) tame ensembles she has worn while promoting Cheek To Cheek (due September 23), her new album of jazz standards with Tony Bennett. I guess it’s hard to sing a Cole Porter classic like “Anything Goes” while rocking a pink hockey mask with a matching bow. Peruse Gaga’s wildest looks up top. More »
With the passing of Lauren Bacall
at the age of 89 on August 11, 2014, Hollywood has lost one of its most legendary greats of the silver screen. Born Betty Perske in The Bronx (and known to those close to her throughout her life as Betty, rather than Lauren), Bacall is perhaps best known for her iconic roles in films such as To Have And Have Not
, Dark Passenger
and How To Marry A Millionaire
— not to mention for her real-life romance with husband and To Have And Have Not
co-star Humphrey Bogart
Bacall’s death is also notable for the the sad significance of all of the famous figures mentioned in Madonna‘s classic 1990 hit “Vogue” having now passed away. Given this, we decided to honor all 16 icons from Madge’s smash single with the gallery above, in which you’ll find a handy guide on which of their memorable films to check out. More »
From Nicki Minaj
‘s booty-shaking “Anaconda”
to Jennifer Lopez
‘s twerk-ready “Booty”
the worship of the derriere is in full force in pop this year — which means there has never been a more pressing need to celebrate the pop star butt.
We’ve collected a whole range of rumps: From sexercizing with Kylie Minogue, to a rather cheeky photo shoot with Olly Murs, to rolling up the partition please with Yoncé, to Miss Miley‘s Bangerz Tour shenanigans, to cooking up breakfast in the buff with a babe from 5 Seconds Of Summer, we’ve had no shortage of booty action from our faves.
Check out our gallery of bootylicious pop stars, proving that behind every great pop star is a great behind. More »
had a really rough 2013 with all that Dr. Luke drama
and health issues
but she’s certainly making up for lost time. “Timber”
is still the catchiest song on radio and she’s a judge on that new talent show
I’ve never watched (but I’m sure is great). However, the 27-year-old’s biggest achievement is slaying Instagram with her general flawlessness.
The “Die Young” diva has never looked better and she’s making sure everyone knows it by posting pic after breathtaking pic. Take her series of multi-colored hair snaps. Kesha has posed in front of the same peacock pattern with yellow, pink, green, blue and aqua (I think) locks in the past couple of days. I’m going with yellow because she also showed some side-boob but they all look great. More »
When she’s not stripping down for Terry Richardson
, putting her own touch on Nicki Minaj
‘s “Anaconda” single artwork
or diving deep into a colorful arts and crafts
project, Miley Cyrus
is truly at her smiliest when she’s surrounded by her beloved brood of pets.
And while she’s certainly demonstrated her affinity for dogs as of late, Miley’s opted to go the barnyard route and adopted a pig named Bubba Sue.
Last night, the Bangerz beauty dropped a few photos of her smooching and cuddling with the cute lil’ piglet. “Newest member to the fam,” she Instagrammed. And it looks like she’s already hard at work learning some #PigTips: She just Instagrammed a photo from a guide to taking care of pigs. Can we expect some muddy shots of the two playing outside sometime soon? Probably.
Do you want to hang out with Miley and Bubba Sue? Let us know what you think about Miss Miley’s newest addition to her family in the comments below. More »
‘s birthday is just around the corner, which means it’s time for another celebration in the Ciccone household: The birth of Rocco Ritchie
Although the newly 14-year-old prince to the Queen Of Pop is still very young, he’s already proven to have (blonde) ambition as an entertainer: Back in 2012, he was slaying the stage worldwide as a guest dancer and DJ during “Celebration” on the MDNA Tour. He’s already got the moves!
As a proud #UnapologeticBitch and even prouder mama #LivingForLove, Madonna‘s been posting photos of her Little Star ever since she first signed up for the photo sharing service. We’ve gathered up some of the best snaps of Rocco (and mom!) above. More »
In true Rihanna
fashion (#phasion), once is simply never
enough: The Unapologetic
beauty, currently slaying the Navy across the country on her joint Monster Tour
, appears in not one, but two spreads for the upcoming September issue of W Magazine
Unlike the eye-popping, Instagram-blocking topless shoot for French mag Lui, RiRi’s completely covered up phresh out the runway for the dark, tribal-inspired high fashion cover shoot, snapped by the legendary Mert & Marcus and styled by Edward Enninful.
The diva dons heavy furs, gigantic jewelry and vibrant face paint and chills with some rather unfriendly looking wolves in the stunning shoot (“Eskimo Horror Cover Story,” as she called it on Twitter), proving that no matter what she’s wearing, the diva knows how to remain a style icon. More »
2014 hasn’t been particularly kind to Selena Gomez
. The 22-year-old began the year in rehab
before releasing a string of flop movies
. She even made the mistake of briefly reuniting with Justin Bieber
. Happily, things could finally be turning around for Sel with news that she has a new single and video on the way as well as a greatest hits
While we wait for the Stars Dance diva’s new music to drop, let’s review her flawless modeling skills. Selena stuns in Adidas Neo Label’s fall/winter collection, turning heads in their casual (but still very cute) clothes. She walks around the streets of New York City in the brand’s jeans and hoodies looking like the utterly adorable girl next door. See all the pics up top. More »
If you’ve been paying attention to “Stay With Me”
crooner Sam Smith
‘s Instagram over the past week, then you know he’s been seriously upping his stubble game when posting selfies on the photo-sharing site. Sam has been jetting all over North America over the past seven days (and even took a detour tour Australia for a performance), having most recently hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live
‘s outdoor stage in Hollywood with his “Latch” pals Disclosure
. And all the while, a razor doesn’t seem to have touched the chart-ruling singer’s face.
“Stubble is getting serious now,” Sam noted when uploading one particular photo. Flip through the gallery above, and let us know if you like Sam with facial hair or prefer your soulful singers a little more clean-shaven. More »
