Race is an issue that this needs to be talked about, and MTV is trying to get the conversation started.

This Martin Luther King Jr. Day, for the first time in the network's history, they'll be airing all of their programs in black and white from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The goal is jar audiences enough that they'll begin having, what MTV is calling "The Talk – candid, confident and 'color brave' conversations on race and bias." It's all a part of their Look Different anti-bias campaign.

Throughout the day, monologues from people like Kendrick Lamar, Common, Big Sean, Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, Penn Badgley, Jordin Sparks, Pete Wentz, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. John Lewis, and Sen. Cory Booker will air, to help get people to discuss our differences.

EXCLUSIVE! Penn Badgley's New Band MOTHXR Electrifies In This Poolside Performance Of Easy

| Filed under: Exclusives!Music MinutePenn Badgley

Lonely Boy isn't so lonely anymore, y'all!

If you've yet to have the pleasure, please meet MOTHXRPenn Badgley's booming, musical lovechild with indie rock and electronica.

Their sound, much to our delight, can't really be justified in comparisons and words. While one could place them in the same family as M83 and Kavinsky, MOTHXR fuses classic ambient vibes with their own unique edge through the culmination of each member's raw, undeniable talent.

The result? A sound the world could definitely use more of!

Based in Brooklyn, the former Gossip Girl and his merry band of brothers traveled to our West Hollywood studio for a performance under the palm trees. What happened when the music started was something out of this world!!

And definitely something YOU need to feast your eyes and ears upon.

So go ahead! Press that pink-tastic PLAY button (above) and let your senses dive into the effects of their hypnotic, new single. It's Easy!
