I grew up with one foot in the hardcore music scene. I say only one foot because the scene was largely dominated by aggressive dudes bent on expressing themselves through violence, pushing girls to the back to act as real, live “coathangers” (i.e. coatholders) for the boys. But that may all be changing if 8-year-old Aussie Juliet has anything to say about it. Juliet recorded this incredible hardcore song and video about how much she loves her dog Robert and her fish. So maybe hardcore’s getting better, after all. [YouTube]

“Real Housewife” Nene Leakes Kicked Some Ass On “Glee”

In a “Glee” episode plagued with cheesy as hell plot lines (Mr. Shue wants Finn to be his best man? Coach Beiste got married in Vegas? What?), last night’s highlight was Nene Leakes as tough-talking synchronized swimming coach, Roz Washington. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am happy to report that the “Real Housewife of Atlanta” star rocked her cameo with wry one-liners like, “If you pee in my pool, I will kill you.” You can watch a clip of her scene here. I hope we see her again this season. I like watching her act better than I like watching her act like herself. What did you think of Nene’s acting debut?

Dear anonymous guy who was arrested for playing too much cowbell during this week’s demonstrations against Wisconsin governor Scott Walker,

The cowbell, she is a seductive beast, isn’t she? The lure of her timber can prove too strong for some, and nay, you found yourself driven to her lusty charms over and over again. Actually, it came to the point where police were moved to arrest you during a protest against Scott Walker because you refused to silence your beloved cowbell. In fact, your cowbell love so enraged one of your fellow protesters that she hit you on the back with her picket sign. The both of you were arrested, but I hope that hasn’t allowed your cowbell dedication to wane. It is, as you, Christopher Walken, and I know, what we all need more of. [AP]

Beyoncé’s Album Promo Photos Are Unrecognizable

Beyonce skin lightened ad

The rampant white-washing of models, actresses, and musicians of color is not a new concept. Freida Pinto, Rihanna, and Aishwarya Rai have all previously fallen victim to white-washing on magazine covers and in promotional images. Beyoncé’s skin was lightened dramatically in a 2008 cosmetics ad by L’Oreal, where she is the spokesperson. These incidents can be contributed to digital retouchers and the outlets that choose to release the images … but what about your own album cover and promo ads? The photos accompanying Beyoncé’s most recent release, 4, have stirred up controversy and it’s not a struggle to see why. Beyoncé is a fairly light-skinned black woman and she generally keeps her hair lightened to a shade that’s more caramel than chocolate. But these shots have her looking straight up like Lindsay Lohan with a subtle tan. If you showed me this image on its own and asked me who it was, Beyoncé would be my last guess.

Again, these light-skinned images are promotional ads for Béyonce’s own album, which leads me to believe that she absolutely approved the photos. [NYMag.com

Mad Men ad photo

Oooh. That’s no good. Who thought this was a good advertisement to put in downtown Manhattan? I love “Mad Men” as much as the next latte-drinking, Volvo-driving, East Coast liberal and I know the image of man in a suit falling from the sky in the opening credits is powerful iconography tied to the show. But even I’ll admit this particular image is awfully evocative of 9/11 (emphasis on “awful”) and the victims who jumped from the Twin Towers to the deaths. To many people, myself included, a man in a suit falling from the sky like that can only mean one thing and, God bless Matt Weiner, but not acknowledging that is just a tad insensitive.  What do readers think? [Copyranter via Crushable]
