Sheer curtains and red lights? The Biebs sure is mature for 19. Justin Bieber got a racy R&B treatment in his music video for "All That Matters." It's not half as racy as the lyrics in his "PYD" track with R.Kelly (obvi, it's Kellz afterall) but Bieber still raises some eyebrows in the sexy video.
Items of note:
* The video isn't a breakthrough in film innovation, but we were relieved to see there were a few seconds of shirtless pelvic thrusting. Whew!
* Apparently canoodling on a motorcycle is the latest music video trend, after Kim and Kanye's bumpy straddling in their "Bound 2" video. In Bieber's case, his female love interest keeps her clothes on, but the pair was nevertheless giving each other a good pat down. The motorcycle appears to be a stock '60s era Honda CB.

These days, the question atop any televised music mega-event boils down to: What will Miley do? Going into Sunday night's American Music Awards show, it seemed impossible that the singer would top her jaw-dropping spectacle at the VMAs. How could she even try?
But she did. And in a way no one in a million years would have guessed: by singing earnestly in front of a cat floating through space. And by the time it was over, the Internet exploded.
The 21- and 22-year-old masterminds behind the moment that will live on in a million memes, Alex Lee and Kyle Wightman, came together from opposite ends of the globe and quit school to become the makers of some of the Internet's greatest recent causes célèbre . Working under the moniker BRTHR ("brother"), the dudes created Miley's Internet-lauded cat-in-space graphics. We are forever grateful.

Youtuber Steve Kardynal strikes again with his seriously hilar recreation of Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" music video, complete with sledgehammer and actually hanging ball! The video was posted just Tuesday and in under a day has already received over two million views (UPDATE: As of Wednesday afternoon, the video is at 17.7 million views!).
Clad in his tighty whities and wife beater (what weird slang we have for men's undergarments), Kardynal writhes and strips in his living room while lip synching the song and recording his screen as random strangers rotate through on Chatroulette. His viewers range from your typical male Internet troll to giggly girls to groups of friends, all of whom react in complete awe of him.
Mimicking the original video, he licks a sledgehammer and mounts himself on a makeshift wrecking ball in his living room, which appears to be a yoga ball tied up with rope. And true to form, he also strips completely nude for his performance. Even when [SPOILER ALERT] the ball breaks, the show still goes on!

New couple alert! No, just playin', but Twitter is pretty bent out of shape about Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake posing far too close for comfort at the 2013 American Music Awards. A few quick snaps were taken backstage of the pair after Swift presented Timberlake the award for Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock.
The photo seems at first glance a pretty standard two-person pose you'd snap at a wedding, or of one of the stars with a fawning fan. But fans of both JT and Swift, didn't take the clutch so lightly and tweeted their dismay at seeing the singers' arms around each other.
We can assume that Swift, having grown up with 'N SYNC and Timberlake's solo career, was super stoked to get so close to the "Suit and Tie" singer. But as some pointed out, Timberlake's hand was precariously close to Swift's bust. Fans in JT's camp, however, were adamant about shielding him from the singer who's not shy about voicing her boy troubles.

The American Music Awards isn't just about the music - 'Clueless' actress Alicia Silverstone popped up on the red carpet looking absolutely flawless! The 37-year-old mother, vegan and activist surprised the audience in her pre-fall 2013 black and gold embellished Nicole Miller mini dress with stacks of complementing gold bangles and simple black pointed toe pumps.
But it's not completely random that the '90s teen queen would show up at one of the biggest music events of the year, she is married to Christopher Jarecki, lead man of the rock band S.T.U.N., and presented the award for Single of the Year, referencing the '90s, of course.
With '90s nostalgia at its high, Silverstone has a whole new generation of fans looking up to her for style inspiration!

Cyrus was the winner of the biggest category of the night, Best Music Video, for her jaw-dropping, Terry Richardson-directed "Wrecking Ball." The leggy singer hit the stage in a high-cut leotard worthy of an '80s Jane Fonda workout video that left little to the imagination. We were puzzled as to why the singer also brought her Chanel clutch with her to the podium, but we soon found out.
Miley's speech was brief, pointing out that the EMA statuette couldn't fit in her streamlined purse. But apparently there was room in the clutch for a very suspicious-looking cigarette.
"I couldn't fit this award in my bag, but I did find this," Miley quipped, as she pulled out a stump of a smoke-able and lit up onstage.
Was that…was that what it appeared to be? The EMAs were held in Amsterdam, where "soft drugs" like marijuana are accepted. But for a foreigner smoke up onstage in a public venue, and on live television?

After her summer residency at the biggest party hotspot on the planet, Ibiza, she's returning to the music scene with a new album.

Check out our exclusive interview with one of the hardest-working bombshells in the biz, shot in Hilton's infamous party room at her home in Los Angeles. She talks about her favorite songs to play, her upcoming album, her insanely successful businesses, plus some tidbits about one of her favorite holidays, Halloween! Oh, if those walls could talk...

A milestone birthday plus a milestone event anniversary? You've got "Move Me Brightly," a film based around the historic musical event of the same name that celebrated Grateful Dead's legendary Jerry Garcia on what would have been his 70th birthday last year. The date also marked the 10th anniversary of the annual "Jerry Day" in Garcia's hometown of San Francisco. Of all the Dead events happening around the city that day, none were closer to Garcia than the all-star gathering of musicians, friends and friends at the "Move Me Brightly" tribute concert at Dead member Bob Weir's TRI Studios, an epic five-hour concert that was streamed live right here on Yahoo Music—and we have highlights from the show for you to watch right now!
