Lenny Kravitz
A new photo of Lenny Kravitz is going viral because the singer accidentally exposed his penis to thousands of fans. The rocker was playing at a gig in Sweden on Monday when he crouched on stage and split his pants, showing concertgoers his dangling penis and its accompanying jewelry.

Jill Scott’s 'Woman' Is A Triumph For R&B

8/4/2015 8:47am EDT
Jill Scott Makes It Two Consecutive No. 1 Albums On Billboard
R&B has triumphed atop the Billboard 200 for the second time this year! Is it a total change of pace for commercially ailing genre? Jill Scott follows her first #1 album, 2011’s Light Of The Sun with a second one with Woman. Woman didn’t match the higher-flying sales of Light Of The Sun, but Scott’s first album in four years certainly has performed better than most of her contemporaries’ R&B efforts. 62,000 units is by no means “the second coming,” but it’s respectable considering the number of albums that have tanked this year (yeah you Jamie Foxx and Ciara).

Jill Scott wasn’t the sol...

One Direction’s New Single ‘Drag Me Down’ Rocks!

8/3/2015 11:57am EDT
One Direction Begins The Post-Zayn Era Off Right With 'Drag Me D
The post-Zayn Malik One Direction era has officially begun. That’s not to say that the mourning has ceased from Directioners everywhere hoping Malik’s exit was the nightmare of the 2010s, but the quintet now reduced to a quartet have to move on. Honestly, historically, a huge change in personnel for a band – rock or pop-oriented – can be a fragile time. In other words, One Direction’s fifth studio album is a very important.

Producers and the Brit-Irish band must get it right and prove that One Direction will be fine sans Zayn. That sounds cruel perhaps – maybe even belittling to a band tha...

'Southpaw' Soundtrack Has Some Enjoyable Performances

Review: 'Southpaw' Soundtrack Has Some Outstanding Moments
Soundtracks, outside of serving the function of accompanying music for film or television, are often less enthralling listening experiences by themselves. In other words, many times, a musical compilation that works exceptionally behind a visual can lack the same luster when listening without the visual. While the soundtrack to Southpaw falls into some of the pitfalls of the soundtrack or compilation, there are a variety of enjoyable musical performances, even if they or Southpaw as a whole doesn’t supplant your favorite hip-hop album.

Among the best moments on Southpaw unsurprisingly...
