Empires' new music video for "Please Don't Tell My Lover" can be seen on MTV.

One of the writers of One Direction's "Steal My Girl", Julian Bunetta, has commented on the whole hoopla over the piano lick.
When we sat down and played the piano lick, nobody had any references in their head about what they wanted to write or anything and then I saw all the things (comments) about that (Journey song). At the end of the day, the lyric and the melody have nothing to do with any other song that I have ever heard. Sometimes there's only so many things you can do with a piano at that tempo. There is an age-old saying that great minds think alike so, naturally, sometimes people are going to write on the same inspirational wave lengths and come up with things that are...

Why are cute girls attending more punk and hardcore shows? MTV's "Guy Code Blog" is on the case. Are you fucking kidding me?
Ultimately, it doesn’t matter why cute girls are there — they’re there. So get your ass to a metal, punk or hardcore show. It can be easy to pick up a woman at such a concert if you follow a few quick preparation tips...

MTVU is making Time Will Tell censor parts of their video for "It Could Be Worse," saying it's "too suggestive for rotation." You can watch the video in the replies and see if you agree. The song features Nick Thompson of Hit The Lights.

MTV has announced that the 29th season of the Real World will come with a twist: instead of just seven strangers brought together to have their lives ruined/taped/made fun of -- the housemates will be forced to live with their exes. This has nothing to do with music except that it's on MTV and we can pretend that's what the 'M' still stands for and I find it hilarious that this is the state of entertainment.

Why won't MTV play music videos? A former employee aims to answer that question once and for all.
Humanity's collective attention span is shrinking by the week. We now consume information on an on-demand basis. Gone are the days of waiting through what we don't want until we reach what we do. And that, more than anything, is why the televised music video is dead. These days, no one is going to wait through the likes of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Ke$ha hoping to catch something from Foo Fighters. Could you really envision yourself sitting down and watching one uninterrupted hour of popular music videos? It simply ain't happening.

Guess what channel does play music videos all day...

The 30th annual MTV Video Music Awards show will take place tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tonight's show has a great line-up of performances from the likes of Kanye West, Drake, Justin Timberlake, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and more. The list of presenters is also stocked full of A-listers and Fall Out Boy is nominated for "Best Rock Video" as well. The show begins at 9 PM EST and you can discuss, debate, and make fun of whatever happens during the show in here. I heard some popular '90s boy band might reunite tonight. I hope it's 98 Degrees.

Justin Timberlake performed "Let The Groove Get In" on Fallon last night. The video can be seen here.
Timberlake and Carell played men's shop employees helping Fallon buy a, yes, "Suit & Tie," only, everyone in the bit had to use mannequin hands instead of human appendages. Things got really weird when Timberlake had to measure Fallon's inseam. And JT could hardly contain his laughter when Carell pointed to exquisite suits from the Joseph Fatone and Lance Bass collections. "It's been in the closet for years ... we finally decided to take it out," Carell said of the Bass pieces as Timberlake bit his lip about the joke about his out-and-proud former 'NSYNC bandmate.

It's that time of year again. The one day in the entire year where MTV plays music videos during primetime hours (well snippets at least). For a channel that only shows full length music videos in the wee hours of the night, I find it hilarious that this awards show is still a thing. Anyways, some of the artists we cover have a prominent role in tonight's spectacle. This year's breakout band fun. is nominated for a handful of awards, including "Best New Artist" where they'll be against Frank Ocean and Joe DeAndrea's favorite artists One Direction and Carly Rae Jepsen. Ocean will also be performing live, as will be Green Day and Taylor Swift, who will be slut-shaming someone. In...

Maroon 5 will release their new album, Overexposed, on June 26th.
InterviewThe group's guitarist, James Valentine, told Rolling Stone, "At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most 'pop' record ever and we weren't shy about really going for it."
