Does The Weeknd's 'Beauty Behind The Madness' Live Up To The Hype?

The Weeknd Steps Up His Game On 'Beauty Behind the Madness'
Talk about a dude with hella hype behind him in 2015! Many musicians would kill to be in the position that Canadian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye – better known as The Weeknd – finds himself in. With three top-five hits, including one chart topper on the Billboard Hit 100, it seemed pretty clear that there was no way that his highly anticipated album Beauty Behind The Madness could miss. Now the question is does the album live up to the gargantuan hype and meet expectations? Sometimes it does, while at others times it’s a smidgen less enthralling than the hype.

With a few notable exceptions, i...

'Big Brother' Review: Knuckleheads, Mean Girls, and Fake Romance
Vanessa is in power which can only mean one thing: this week is going to be confusing, emotional, dramatic, and crazy. Vanessa is the saving grace of this season. Not because she has a winning personality or is a strategic genius or is even any fun to watch. It’s because she just a little bit off in every aspect of being a good Big Brother player. Is she a strong competitor? Well, she’s managed to win competitions when she needs to, including the shortest endurance competition yet. But her HOHitis makes her unbearable. Does she have a strong social game? She formed the strongest alliance fr...

2015 VMAs Fashion: Stars Bare Lots Of Skin, Flaunt Their Curves
The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. The show allows singers to let loose when it comes to what they wear -- and they often wear very little.

Taylor Swift was actually one of the more conservative stars from the 2015 event, donning colorful sequined, hounds tooth pants and a matching crop top. Some have likened her look to pajama pants, but we think it's sharp!

She took home awards for Video Of The Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. She and Nicki Minaj showed there was no bad blood between them after singing together on stage.

Samantha Steffen's Texts To Joe Bailey Revealed

Joe Bailey Shares Samantha's Texts: Was Sam's Ultimate Goal To M
Bachelor in Paradise star Joe Bailey promised to share Samantha Steffen's texts after his elimination from the show, and he came through. One week after his appearance on ABC's live After Paradise show, Joe turned to Twitter to set the record straight about Samantha's dishonesty.

Did Sam want Joe to stay because she was interested in a relationship with him or was she using him as a placeholder until Nick Peterson arrived? Although Joe's actions didn't win him any points with fans or his co-stars, Sam's revealing texts clearly make her one of the most manipulative villains in the history o...

Should ‘Hannibal’s’ Third Season Have Followed The Books So Closely?

8/30/2015 10:06pm EDT
Hannibal TV Series
That’s it, folks. Hannibal’s over. It’s been a good run (phenomenal, really) and there are roughly 800,000 questions I’ve got after witnessing “The Wrath of the Lamb’s” final blood orgy of a cliffhanger (a literal cliffhanger, no less). But here’s the question that I think is most pressing:

Should Hannibal have clung so closely to Thomas Harris's novels this season?

This year’s been quite the departure from Hannibal season past. Those first two years started with the obvious broad strokes Thomas Harris provided (characters, settings, etc) and built their very own framework. The more exact...

Miley Arrives At The MTV VMAs In Next To Nothing

8/30/2015 10:05pm EDT
Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus prepared for her hosting gig at this year's MTV Video Music Awards by sharing a nude selfie from her bathroom.

The 22-year-old singer stood in front of her bathroom mirror sans clothing, but skirted Instagram's no nudity policy with a couple of digital stars and her arm placed across her chest.

Producers of the show basically gave her free reign as host, but the show is being aired on a tape delay -- just in case.

Miley showed up to the show wearing little more than the two photoshopped stars, arriving in silver knee-high boots and a sci-fi themed outfit that made Milla Jovov...

MTV To Air 2015 Video Music Awards On A Tape Delay Because Of Miley Cyrus

8/30/2015 7:20pm EDT
Miley Cyrus
MTV is airing the 2015 Video Music Awards on a tape delay, just in case hostess Miley Cyrus pulls any stunts that may be too hot for TV.

Miley has been given free reign at this year's ceremony, and judging by her past, it's a good bet something will happen.

"There's a chance for anything," veteran MTV exec Van Toffler told Billboard.com ahead of the Aug. 30 telecast.

"We have a lot of wide camera shots and a lot of audience reaction shows," Toffler, who is co-executive producing this year's show with Garrett English, said. "And we have a delay so we're prepared for her."

The 22-year-old...

This Lindsay Lohan Story Was Too Good To Be True

Lindsay Lohan
Rumors that Lindsay Lohan stripped off her clothes and ran around naked at a pal Justin Etzin's wedding last week aren't true, according to a rep for the newlywed.

Lohan attended the nuptials of pal Etzin, the Consul General for tropical island nation The Seychelles, and model Lana Zalocela in Florence, Italy, and stories that she flipped out and claimed she was drugged have been greatly exaggerated.

Sources told the New York Post last week that the actress spoke with a British accent and painted her nails during the ceremony. Afterward, she is said to have played the song "The Boy Is Min...
