Here’s something we didn’t expect: a pro-abstinence Nicki Minaj parody called “Super Grace”! It’s based on “Super Bass” and the Bible, and Jesus Christ himself gets thanked in the comments. Future civilizations will no doubt pour over lyrics like “He’s waiting for the band / He’ll just hold my hand … I want to be a wife but I must wait / oh no no no no / I have to wait / Christian boys got my heartbeat running away” wondering what they mean.

While “Super Grace” is certainly better than any youth group project I ever did, I almost hate telling these youngsters — whoopsies! — abstinence-only sex ed doesn’t actually work. [Popdust

If we’re to believe the news being leaked out of Coachella Festival headquarters, this year’s double weekend Coachella Festival, held in Indio, California on April 13-15 and April 20-22, is going to be like taking a fantastical ride in the wayback machine to the mid-’90s. Supposedly the fest’s headliners are No Doubt, Foo Fighters and Radiohead. And also appearing: Fiona Apple (!), Chris Cornell, Underworld (remember “Born Slippy”?) and Nada Surf. Oh sure, there are some current bands playing too — like Best Coast and Wild Flag — but the headliners are all a zillion years old.

This video, lambasting the longstanding tradition of girls traveling in large packs to nightclubs, might not be — in the words of the immortal Whitney Houston — “right, but it’s okay.” You know the girls this video is talking about. Maybe sometimes you’re even one of them. No shame. Just don’t be Becky, okay? She really can’t handle her liquor. [Daily Picks and Flicks]

Kate is only the 838th most popular name in the US, but to former Frisky staffer, Kate Torgovnick, it felt like number one sometimes. She often commented how it blew her mind how many freaking Kates there were out there. Maybe that’s what prompted her to start signing her emails K8. Anyhow, we miss her terribly, but she is doing groundbreaking work in the Kate-o-sphere with her new blog, Katebook. As you may be able to guess by the name, the blog is for Kates, by Kates and about Kates. Whether your name is Kate or not, it’s impossible not to enjoy reading up on the latest Katelines all expertly penned by our favorite Kate in the world.

Despite what you may have heard, the New York City subway isn’t just crammed with rats, people slurping spaghetti, and urine-soaked homeless people. Occasionally there are magical moments, like the spontaneous musical duet of ukulele player Jessica Latshaw and an unnamed percussionist yesterday morning. YouTube user mybs86 captured the whole thing: Keep reading »

You know that part in “There’s Something About Mary” where Matt Dillon’s character says he wants to “slow things down, read more books, see more movies”? I have that same thought a lot, usually when guilty pleasures have been hogging up my available brainspace. Where does all the time go? Will I ever finish that pile of books next to my bed? Why do I watch so many “Chelsea Lately” reruns instead? 

I don’t have the answers to these questions. But I do have a bunch of great suggestions of blogs and podcasts to check out to eke a little more culture into your life to balance all that “Jersey Shore” viewing. No, the half-an-episode the gang spent sight-seeing around Italy doesn’t count. Keep reading »
