Joe Jonas sets the record straight about growing up Jonas.
If you're still reeling from the news of the Jonas Brothers breaking up, then maybe it's time you turned to Joe Jonas' SUPER-revealing essay in New York Magazine. The essay, titled "Joe Jonas: My Life As A Jonas Brother," explains the Jonas situation pretttttyyyyy pretttyyyy
Like, if we had a dollar for every "OH MY GOD, NO HE DIDN'T. Oh no SHE DIDN'T! They did WHAT??" moment in Joe's essay, which pretty much maps out the entirety of Nick, Joe, and Kevin's musical career as a trio, we'd have, well, enough cash to buy an expensive sandwich for lunch. Like, a $10 sandwich from Au Bon Pain.
Oh, and if you didn't read the essay yet? Let's quickly review: Joe talked promise rings. He talked smoking weed with Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. He talked DATING Demi Lovato. He talked working with Disney and the Jonas Brothers' rapid rise to fame. And, perhaps most importantly, he talked breaking UP with the Jonas Brothers. It's just... it's a lot to process. I know I'm barely holding it together. But how's everyone in Twitter-land taking it?
@JohnJanuzzi thought THIS was the best line in the entire piece (and we have to say we agree):

Avril Lavigne, singer-songwriter and poutine pro, shows you how to make Canada's most delicious dish.
Of all of Canada's myriad and sundry and disparate exports -- Lorne Michaels and ketchup chips, Justin Bieber and mop buckets, Ryan Gosling and bacon, Avril Lavigne and poutine -- it's the latter pairing of Avril Lavine and poutine that strikes us as the perfect combination of sweet, salty, completely unwilling to grow up, and perfect for the holidays. (Plus, it rhymes!)
In case you're unfamiliar with poutine, it's a Québécois dish consisting of cheese curds, fries, and gravy, and it's obviously as delectable as it sounds, because who doesn't want all three of those things all at the same time all of the time? Also, I'm not saying they smoke a lot of weed in Canada, but it sounds like a high-dea if ever I heard one.
BRB, IMMIGRATING TO CANADA!
Watch Avril Lavigne teach how you how to make poutine after the jump!
This is actually a pretty accurate representation of our minds, TBH.
Just when you thought it was safe to think about the lads of One Direction in public, the British-Irish boy band goes ahead and reveals a bunch o' steamy secrets to Seventeen magazine. FYI, when we say "steamy," we mean "literally STEE-MAY" -- as in, they talk about what they do when they're in the shower. Aaaaaaaand, collapse.
Six waves of our 1D brand smelling salts later, and we're back on our feet! Landing five individual covers of the mag's December/ January issue (plus the group shot up top for those Directioners who don't wanna choose), the "Story Of My Life" singers get all cute and candid in their revealing new interview.

Paramore's Hayley Williams spills her Halloween dos and don'ts.
For such a whackadoodle holiday, it's shocking to think how many rules come into play when Halloween's on the horizon. Examples? DO think of a creative costume! But DON'T dress like a slutty pizza. DO throw or attend a party! But for the love of God and everything politically correct, DON'T wear blackface to said party. See where we're going with this?
Also: DO ask Paramore's Hayley Williams what her own Halloween dos and don'ts are! (Hint: DON'T try to feed her an apple.)
Find out what Hayley Williams' Halloween Dos and Don'ts are after the jump.
Watch J. Cole revisit his old Queens apartment in MTV's 'Life & Rhymes: J. Cole -- 'Crooked Smile'' documentary.
J. Cole might be signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation, and he might have worked with everyone from Miguel to Kendrick Lamar to TLC, but the 28-year-old performer wasn't always so rich in famous friends. Before the success of "Crooked Smile" and his 2013 full-length, Born Sinner (which earned an Album Of The Year BET Award nom), J. was just another young hip-hop hopeful trying to get by and hustling hard in Jamaica, Queens.
In the upcoming reboot of MTV's behind-the-scenes "Life & Rhymes" documentary, which premieres tonight at 7:53 p.m. ET on Jcole.mtv.com, J. Cole will return to his old apartment in Jamaica, where he'll show us how he struggled as a musician and tell the story of how he wrote his smash hit, "Crooked Smile."

Come on, Chilli and T-Boz, give us the scoop!
It's almost here! TLC's biopic, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story," premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET on VH1. But before you don your "Creep"-era silk pajamas and "Unpretty"-style Left Eye tri-braid (we assume this is how everyone else is watching the film, too), get a sneak peek at what to expect from founding members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas!

Paramore's Hayley Williams stans REALLY hard for TLC.
#TrueFact No. 2,183: Lady musicians admire other lady musicians. And Paramore's Hayley Williams, aka one of the raddest-ever lady musicians, is no different! In fact, Hayley even sat down with us recently to talk about the female artists she grew up admiring in the '90s, namely TLC, the subject of VH1's upcoming biopic, "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story."

They don't want no scrubs -- yesterday, today, or ever.
Be honest. Who hasn't at some point belted out the words to TLC's ultimate girl jam "No Scrubs"?
Maybe you've screamed "NO SCRUBS" at the top of your lungs while cruising down the highway with a bestie, maybe you've admonished guys who "sit on their broke asses" while singing into a hairbrush in the privacy of your bedroom, or maybe you've lost yourself in the words while making a total mess in the kitchen à la Meadow Soprano.
But if for some ridiculous reason you haven't memorized the words to TLC's 1999 FanMail classic, then it's time to CHANGE THAT NOW. Why? Well, for one thing, no music education is complete without watching TLC's iconic, futuristic "No Scrubs" video, and for another, the song's I-respect-myself-too-much-to-date-a-loser message truly holds up almost 15 years later.
Anyway, in honor of the soon-to-be premiere of VH1's "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" (Oct. 21), we chatted about "No Scrubs" with none other than the surviving members of TLC, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. That's right, we talked "No Scrubs" with TLC, and we're still fangirling in the fetal position under our desk. #NoShame
