Chris Brown flies above on the VMAs

Has Chris Brown finally risen above the controversy?

It's been two years since the singer pleaded guilty to felony assault on then girlfriend Rihanna. Since then, he has continued to make music, and generally tried to keep his career on track.

His performance at Sunday’s MTV Music Video Awards is being hailed as one of the evening’s stand outs. FULL POST

What's the deal with Gaga's alter ego?

No latex, no meat, no spandex and no crazy hats.

Instead, Lady Gaga sported a white T-Shirt, black slacks and a greased back 'do to open the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. Always committed to the character, Gaga puffed on a cigarette as she moved across the stage.

Basically, if Fonzie and Ponyboy had a child, it would be Gaga's musical alter ego, Joe Calderone.

China bans Gaga… and the Backstreet Boys?

In a notice posted on its homepage, the ministry of culture has ordered all websites – including personal ones – to remove 100 “unapproved or unregistered” music tracks by September 15, or face punishment.

“Certain websites have been allowing users to play, listen to and download the listed songs,” the ministry declared. “Such actions have disturbed the online music market order and endangered national cultural safety.” FULL POST

Way to steal the show, Beyonce!

The most memorable moment of Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards had nothing to do with music, fashion or a cross-dressing Lady Gaga. Instead, it was some big news from a not-so-single lady.

In case you haven’t already heard, superstar singer Beyonce and rapper husband Jay-Z are expecting their first child.
