Young M.A – “Get This Money” Video

The transformative Brooklyn rap star Young M.A might've unexpectedly broken into the Billboard top 10 with her song "OOOUUU" last year, but that doesn't mean she's doing things differently.

R. Kelly Addresses “Rumors” He’s Performing At Trump Inauguration

Nobody was saying that R. Kelly was going to perform at Donald Trump's inauguration. It's virtually impossible to imagine anything like that happening. But someone must've told R.

Watch Bryan Cranston, Jessica Biel, Giovanni Ribisi, & James Corden Perform A Kanye West Soap Opera

The Late Late Show thought it'd be a great idea to make a soap opera using dialogue found in some of Kanye West's greatest songs.

Trent Reznor was one of the first big-name musicians to maintain an active and engaged Twitter presence, though he had a conflicted relationship with the platform.

Springsteen Tribute Band Was Booked For NJ Inaugural Gala Before Trump Even Announced Candidacy

In recent days there has been some media hubbub about a scheduled performance by the B Street Band, a Bruce Springsteen tribute band from New Jersey, at that state's upcoming Garden State Inaugural Gala.
