Ten Trivial Facts About Vh1's Pop Up Video

Watching the Vh1 show Pop Up Video used to be the best way to learn little known trivia about your favorite bands while enjoying their music videos, and the producers of the show actually went to some pretty extreme lengths to get this information.

By speaking to crew members who worked on the videos they were able to get the inside scoop on facts music megastars didn't want you to know, like Alanis Morissette "kinda stank" during the taping of her "You Learn" video.

Pop Up Video didn't pull punches, but Billy Joel forced them to pull an episode with "Keeping The Faith" because his daughter was harassed at school over what the show said about Joel's ex-wife Christie Brinkley- "It's rumored Christie didn't keep the faith with Billy."

The show's writers were also so catty to lead singer of The Wallflowers Jakob Dylan, son of Bob Dylan, that the network forced the show to edit their segment for "One Headlight" until it was nicer to poor Dylan.
