On Thursday at the iHeart Radio Awards, L.A Reid debuted a previously unreleased single, ” Love Never Felt So Good”. The song was originally cut in 1983.  The album will have eight never heard before songs that were recorded in 1983-1999 (Reid says the music has been updated to the times).

Image

Last night MTV had Brooklyn Barclays Center on fire as your favorite celebrities like Kanye West and Katy Perry hit the stage. But… the  2013 VMAs were stolen by former boy band sensations *NSYNC!  After 11 years the group reunited on the stage during Justin Timberlake‘s Vanguard Performance.  The boy band dismembered in 2001 and Justin went solo in 2002 and premiered at the 2002 VMAS!  For you music lovers… Justin sampled some of Hov’s hits during his medley performance. JT said ” He still runs this BITCH!”. Named the President of Pop… He tears the house down. Check out the awesome set click below if you didn’t have a chance to catch it.

*NSYNC Reunion

Others to hit the stage included Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz during a collabo performance with Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus. Th performance was a little much….. ok it was A LOT. Miley Cyrus caught herself turning up and out on the stage and blurred some lines with Robin Thicke as she sported a furry animal one piece and he rocked Beetlejuice’s suit… Click below to see the ratchness.

Yeah… that pretty much wraps it up. Rihanna and Drake‘s faces were not amused. Haha. Miley needs a timeout! The level of thirst to twerk is ridiculous. There was a lot of politically incorrect things going on last night… The VMAs were overall a job well done and the Barclays was a great choice. Glad that NYC has the show back in town. 2 thumbs up!!!
