Originally posted 07/29/2014 12:35PM

July 31, 2001, may not seem like a special date to many, but some Top 40 aficionados will remember it as the day Now That's What I Call Music 7 hit shelves and enlivened music lovers of all tastes with their favorite summer jams. Released just a few months before the arrival of the first iPod, this is the last Now album to find its home solely in the slot of Walkmans and CD players across the country.

Thirteen years later, we're up to Now 51 and can get any song we want on our smartphones, but that doesn't mean we should forget the pre-selected simplicity Now 7 brought to teen drivers, road trippers and daily commuters back in 2001. To celebrate this compilation's birthday, we checked up on each of the 19 artists that contributed to this mix of boy bands and pop queens.

Nipplegate 10 Years Later: 33 Ways Janet Jackson's Wardrobe Malfunction Changed the World

Originally posted 01/30/2014 12:00PM

It was 10 years ago that the wardrobe malfunction seen around the world – or at least the country – occurred on the halftime stage of Super Bowl XXXVIII.

At the end of Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's performance of "Rock Your Body," the now-solo 'NSYNCer pulled off a section of Jackson's dress, accidentally revealing her breast to roughly 140 million viewers.

The slip was paused, rewound and replayed endlessly over the following weeks, becoming fodder for every TV host and the source of outrage for thousands of moms. Even a decade later, the infamous halftime show is cited more than almost any other Super Bowl moment, but Nipplegate goes further than nostalgia.

Jackson Family Drama: Police Called After 'Altercation'

Originally posted 07/24/2012 12:55PM

Just days after matriarch Katherine Jackson was reported missing – and then located in Arizona – the Jackson family seems to be facing more drama after police were called to the family home on Monday.

The L.A. Sheriff's department responded to a family disturbance call at Katherine's home on Monday afternoon after Janet, Randy and Jermaine Jackson reportedly tried to take Michael Jackson's children Prince, Paris and Blanket from the compound.

"Deputies determined that a physical altercation had occurred of misdemeanor battery," said L.A. Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore. "It involved members of the Jackson family. A report was taken. No arrests were made, and the investigation is ongoing."

Whitmore confirmed that the altercation involved "two people," although he did not specify which two. He did add, "If we thought an arrest should have been made, we would have made it."

Janet Jackson Says She Doesn't Weigh Herself

After years of yo-yo dieting, Janet Jackson is finally at the size she wants to be. Just don't ask her how many pounds she's dropped.

"I don't know how much weight I've lost, only because I stay away from the scale," Jackson told PEOPLE at Marco Glavianos "Supermodels" exhibit in New York recently.

"I don't think [stepping on the scale] is healthy. You're setting yourself up to fail and women's bodies fluctuate every month – certain time of the month in particular – we bloat a great deal," she says.
