Behind the Music: 7 Celeb Stories VH1 Needs To Get On Now

May 2, 2012 ‐ By Desire Thompson


“Behind the Music” made its return to our televisions after a three year hiatus (one of many breaks the show has taken since 2006) this year with stories about today’s top artists (and has-beens). This season began with Pitbull, The Game (why?), Brandy and Nas. In years past, “Behind the Music” has captured the stories of huge industry legends like Elton John and Gladys Knight, and while VH1’s demographic has changed, the history and the stories that need to be told have not. Take a look at some artists whose stories would be worth a listen.
(On a side note: The new episode this week is a remastered version of The Notorious B.I.G’s bio)

    I would loooovvveeee to see Sade, but as a true fan it is a 1 in 3 million chance that would ever happen, I would also like to see Luther which would have a greater probability of happening, I can see Common happen eventually.

  • Jnxcat

    Are we forgetting TV’s Unsung, its much better than Behind the Music…

  • Negress

    Sade need not ever spoil her mystique. It’s essential to her persona. 

  • Yes to the ENTIRE article! omg, i cant even like put my opinion on here cause i mean y’all got EVERYBODY… 

    •  i thought i should add:
      Whitney Houston
      Michael Jackson
      Janet Jackson

      • Jay

        Pretty sure those people were covered on Behind the Music T.T

  • Ay

    Some of these would be better fit for Unsung. Sade is the only one worth probing into. Luther’s not here to give his insight so that wouldn’t make sense.

  • Nitty

    I think SWV deserves an episode. BTW, I refuse to click on all those damn links! Why can’t we just scroll down the page!? LOL, I think we readers should boycott these sites until they listen to us! 

    • guest

      lol thats how they make money thats like TV without commercials ? would you rather pay a membership to read her stories ? 

  • Behind the Music: 80’s series. Now that would be great!

  • JaneDoe

    I would def love to see Luther’s behind the music. He is my all time favorite male vocalist. Sade is simply a beautiful being.. Lover her
