Check Out Aimee Osbourne's Creepy Music Video 'Raining Gold'
It appears that Ozzy isn't the only Osbourne who has a penchant for music. His daughter Aimee, 31, has released a music video under the name ARO, which are her initials.

Aimee famously refused to be featured on the massively popular MTV reality series "The Osbournes," which aired from 2002-05 and included siblings Jack and Kelly. Aimee has kept herself largely out of the spotlight until this point.

Aimee's video was featured on The Fader. She told the website that the song is about "feeling trapped in a broken dynamic. Feeling so worn out and turned upside down from manipulation can make ...

Pharrell Williams Says He Didn't Copy Marvin Gaye's Song
Pharrell Williams testified in court on Wednesday that he wasn't thinking of Marvin Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up" while he wrote the hit tune "Blurred Lines" for Robin Thicke.

The family believes they deserve a cut of the song's $16 million profits as well as some of Thicke's touring money.

Williams insists he didn't copy the song and told the Los Angeles court: "I must've been channe...

Kanye West
In yet another bizarre public display, Kanye West refused to talk to U.K. host Jonathan Ross during his talk show, lying down and remaining silent for the duration of his appearance.

Ross joked: "If you want to spoon, I don't mind. [My bum]'s not as big as Kim's,...

Review: Big Sean Brings The Heat On 'Dark Sky Paradise'

March 2nd, 2015 11:30am EST
Big Sean - Dark Sky Paradise
“Oh God!” How many times has Detroit bred MC Big Sean uttered that phrase? On his third studio album Dark Sky Paradise, Sean strives to establish himself as a heavyweight in the rap game, even if he has no shortage of skeptics or haters.

Dark Sky Paradise isn’t perfect, but there are plenty of exceptional moments to be had.

Opener “Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)” is somewhat off-putting, yet establishes the overall tenor of the album. As listeners have become accu...
