“There’s a tour going on,” the 63-year-old explained. “So you have to sometimes ignite that tour, it’s called a Jedi mind trick. The Jedi mind trick fools you a lot of time.” He wasn’t done there. “Everybody’s talking about it, ticket sales went up. Solange’s album sales went up 200 per cent.” Wow. What kind of dad publicly accuses his daughters of fraud? Amusingly, he claims to still be managing Destiny’s Child and says he speaks with Bey every Sunday. They are going to have an interesting conversation this week. Listen to the interview after the jump. More »

The Orange Is The New Black actress clearly caught the holy ghost during “Blow” and launched to her feet. The 30-year-old history-maker is clearly a paid-up member of The Hive because she knew all the moves. Making the moment even more magical is the sour look on Kim Kardashian‘s face. (The reality star was seated in the row behind). Watch Laverne get her entire life after the jump. More »
Aside from 2012′s dismal 6.13 million viewing audience, this year’s show was the lowest-watched event since 2007′s Video Music Awards. (The highest? 2011′s show, which averaged 12.4 million viewers.) In addition to Beyoncé, the night featured acts like Ariana Grande, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Iggy Azalea and Jessie J, although fellow pop divas known for their memorable VMAs moments (both on and off-stage) — including Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears — were not in attendance.
But, hey, there were still 12.6 million tweets!

The show was also shorter in time-length than usual, and a lot more tame when compared to recent years. So how did this all pan out as far as quality entertainment? Head below for our roundup of VMAs reviews. More »
The show kicked off with a bang (sort of!), as pint-sized pop tart Ariana Grande crash-landed onto the stage to merrily skip around for a rendition of “Break Free.” Cute! Then came a second bang — err, butt, as our beloved “Pills N Potions” rapstress Nicki Minaj took to her jungle-themed stage (which was snake-free by the way, thanks to an incident over the weekend) to deliver some spot-on booty-ography from her a$$-clapping “Anaconda” video. And then, an ACTUAL “Bang Bang,” as Jessie J arrived to the stage. The powerhouse trio then teamed up on stage, except — eek! Nicki was just barely zipped up into her dress, resulting in an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. But even though the dress totally flopped, she expertly covered her bits and handled it like a total champ. More »
A lot has changed in that time, and he 31st annual VMAs was held at The Forum in Inglewood, California, just south of Los Angeles. Beyonce and Iggy Azalea were tied for the most nominations, with eight apiece, while Bey received the Video Vanguard Awards (an honor bestowed upon David Bowie, The Beatles and A Hard Day’s Night director Richard Lester at that very first ceremony in 1984).
Below, is the full list of winners from the 2014 MTV VMAs, where you can see who all took home a Moonman after the latest installment of MTV’s annual music blowout. More »
It kind of goes without saying that the 32-year-old looked amazing. Like Iggy Azalea, she opted for a glamorous look over a skimpy rag or plunging neckline. Bey’s beyond those games and knows she can still scalp bitches by simply flashing a smile. Mrs. Carter is rumored to be performing a medley of her entire visual album. Stay tuned. More »
Ahead of the latest staging of MTV’s annual extravaganza, we decided to flash back through the past decade, all the way back to 2004, to refresh our memories on exactly which artists and songs won the big prize on VMAs night. We then compiled snippets of all the winning clips into one two-and-a-half-minute video, which you can watch above. More »

“***Flawless” is scheduled to impact rhythmic radio this week and Queen Bey will perform at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, so I guess we’ll know more then. In the meantime, check out The Thin Red Men remix of “Pretty Hurts”. It’s a little on the camp side but that works well with the song’s divalicious lyrics. Listen after the jump. More »
