If Aloe Blacc decides to crack open a cold one this summer to toast to his success, he'll be able to do so with a bottle of beer whose label he designed himself. Aloe is one of the artists participating in Beck's Beer's Live Beyond Labels series, which commissions musicians to design original artwork that is then displayed on the labels of Beck's beer bottles.  This year's series will start July 1, and in addition to Aloe, "Safe and Sound" duo Capital Cities has also created label artwork.

It is a pretty daunting thing going into this whole new world with celebrated, incredible actors. And it's one of those things where I think to myself,…

The answer, unsurprisingly, is a resounding yes. "We're still hearing music by major artists at the top of the charts that is shaped by their experience, their love, their reverence for Michael Jackson.

Liam Payne and Harry Styles know their ABCs. The proof is in a new video released by Sesame Street, which finds the two One Direction members singing the alphabet with Bert.
