“MTV is celebrating the end of the summer with a three-day long “Yo! MTV Raps” marathon.
MTV Jams, the network’s 24-hour hip-hop music channel, will feature a countdown of the 100 most-played music videos during the iconic rap show’s era, 1988 to 1995. MTV will also air some of the series’ most memorable moments and interviews, including the 1989 boycott of the Grammys, when Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff won awards but rap wasn’t included on the telecast.”
Old School Is Back!!! Yeeeeaaah!
“Today would have been Michael Jackson’s 55th birthday. Though the King of Pop died four years ago at the age of 50.”
Happy Birthday Michael!! We Love You ♥
“Robin Roberts will return to co-anchoring “Good Morning America” on a full-time basis after the holiday weekend.”
“Everyone has an opinion on the now-infamous Miley Cyrus-Robin Thicke MTV VMAs performance — and the vast majority are not very favorable. Count Thicke’s mother, Gloria Loring among that group. Loring watched the performance for the first time with Yahoo’s omg! Insider, where her reaction was a combination of pride for her son and calculated criticism of Cyrus.
She told omg! Insider that the problem is now she cannot “unsee” what she just watched.
“I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son,” Loring said.
“I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do,” she continued. “I just don’t understand. I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers. And I think it was not beneficial.”
You know it’s serious when someone use a word like “misbegotten” LOL!
Miley was just having fun, she didn’t hurt no one…..
“Throngs of people descended on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr. delivering his “I Have a Dream” speech — some of whom had been there a half-century ago for the reverend’s historic oratory.
King’s soaring address, delivered to 250,000 supporters, punctuated the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. It was a watershed moment for race relations in America that has been remembered in a week-long series of events, which culminated in remarks from President Obama on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial Wednesday afternoon.
“His words belong to the ages, possessing a power and prophecy unmatched in our time,” Obama said of King.
Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Jamie Foxx were among a list of speakers addressing a nation that has made great strides in racial equality since King’s “dream” speech helped bring about landmark civil rights legislation.
“Dr. King was the passionate voice that awakened the conscience of the nation,” Winfrey told the people in the crowd, urging them to carry on his message. “He challenged us to see how we all are more alike than we are different.”
Organizers told The Associated Press that 200,000 people were expected to attend Wednesday’s event.
Betty Gray, 67, traveled to Washington from Richmond, Va., for the anniversary of the speech, which she went to 50 years ago. She said she took the NAACP bus for four dollars round-trip 50 years ago and went because her mother was a civil rights activist who was honored by former President Harry Truman for helping sign black people up to vote.
“It’s in my mom’s memory that I’m here today,” said Gray, who also attended both inaugurations for Obama.
Events were planned throughout the day to mark the 50th anniversary, starting with a 9 a.m. interfaith service. Speakers, including various senators and congressmen and NAACP President Ben Jealous, were also part of the commemoration.
“As we go home today, let us remember that the dreamer was also a doer,” Jealous said. “Let us not just be dreamers this day. Let us recommit to being doers.”
Family members of King also spoke. Martin Luther King III, King’s son, said his dad “challenged” his supporters to love all other people, regardless of who they were.”
Happy 50th Anniversary! Let’s keep the dream alive!!! ♥
“Justin Timberlake wrote a letter to his fans and released a promo video for part two of “The 20/20 Experience,” his upcoming album set for release in Sept. 30.”
“It’s her party, she can do what she want — just not make veiled drug references. Miley Cyrus performed her hit summer song “We Can’t Stop” at the 2013 MTV VMAs, but without one of the track’s signature racy lines.
Cyrus’ VMA performance featured a bunch of dancers in bear costumes, her reference to “molly” was notably absent. MTV bleeped out the “dancing with molly” line during Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop” performance.
LOL we love that song!!!
“Taylor Swift was less than pleased to see ex-boyfriend Harry Styles as he took to the stage at the MTV VMAs on Sunday night.
The 23-year-old singer was caught saying “Shut the f**k up” to pal Selena Gomez as Styles and the rest of One Direction were thanking their fans for being so awesome, right before they went on to announce Gomez as the winner of Best Pop Video.”
Are they sure she was saying “Shut The F**k Up” because of him? LOL

“Much to the delight of ’90s kids everywhere, the now grown-men of former boy band *NSYNC reunited on Sunday evening for a performance at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
VMA nominee Justin Timberlake was joined by his former *NSYNC bandmates, Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for a highly anticipated reunion. Rumors began swirling in the days leading up to the VMAs that the famed boy band would perform, but the hype was never confirmed by anyone in Timberlake’s or MTV’s camps.
Timberlake was celebrated at the VMAs with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, an honor that brought the members of *NSYNC together. The men performed parts of “Bye, Bye, Bye” and “Girlfriend.” After *NSYNC released their last studio album in 2001, appearances by all five members of the group have been rare. “
Aw they were AWESOMEEEE!!!!!
