Music Bite: Kanye West Announces New ‘Yeezus’ Tour Featuring Kendrick Lamar

September 6, 2013 § 1 Comment


After what seemed to be an eternity, Kanye West is making a return to the stage for his first solo tour in five years! Called the Yeezus tour, Yeezy will be joined alongside opening act Kendrick Lamar for a 23-city tour – hitting up cities like New York (twice), his hometown of Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and more. The most interesting part of the tour is that the self-proclaimed “King Of New York” won’t be making an appearance on either NYC tour stop – is K. Dot not ready to face the crowd?

Other than that, the Yeezus tour will definitely be one to watch! Better cop your tickets ASAP when they go on sale Friday, September 13. This marks the first solo tour since 2008’s Glow In The Dark tour. Let’s not forget when the Fame Kills tour got canceled after the whole VMA debacle. After that, Yeezy teamed up with Jay Z for the incredible Watch The Throne Tour. So who knows what he has in store this time around! Is this epic or what?

Check out the tour dates after the jump! Keep reading…

MTV VMAs: 15 Most Iconic & WTF Moments In Video Music Award Show History!

August 23, 2013 § Leave a comment


The MTV Video Music Awards will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this Sunday (August 25) so I’ve decided to look back throughout the decades to recap one of music’s wildest award shows out there.

From Lady Gaga’s meat dress to Britney Spears breakout “Oops…” performance, there’s a lot that has happened over the last 30 years. Let’s take a look back at some of the craziest OMG moments, appearances and performances in MTV VMA history!

15. Krist Novoselic Gets Hit With His Bass During Nirvana performance (1992)

During the band’s performance of “Lithium,” Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic thought it was a good idea to throw his bass up in the air. Gravity wasn’t on his side when the guitar landed right on his head. Ouch!

14. Rage Against The Machine’s Tim Commerford Climbs On Scaffolding (2000)

RATM’s bassist Tim Commerford was so pissed that his band lost the Best Rock Video to Limp Bizit, that he started to climb on the stage’s scaffolding until security had to get him down.

13. Eminem’s “The Real Slim Shady” Clone Performance (2000)

This performance was pretty epic, as a sea of Slim Shady clones (with peroxide blonde hair, obviously) gathered inside the VMA Radio City Music Hall venue!

12. Courtney Love Ambushing Madonna’s Interview (1995)

A drunk Courtney Love thought it was a good idea to intrude on Madonna’s VMA interview, which the Queen of Pop was clearly not too pleased about. Love even throws her makeup compact to try to get her attention!

11. Madonna’s Glamourous “Vogue” Performance (1990)

Madonna’s Marie Antoinette-inspired “Vogue” performance was definitely one for the books! It was over-the-top, super-animated and solidified her as the reigning Queen of Pop. Bow down!

Read on for the top 10 VMA moments! Keep reading…
