Lykke Li’s new album, Wounded Rhymes, has been getting attention for months, thanks to her video “Get Some” in which she sings, “Like the shotgun/ need an outcome/ I’m your prostitute/ you gonna get some.” As you might have guessed from the album title, this is a breakup record, with songs fluctuating in mood from wounded to rage-filled, while the musical style jumps from electronic to ’60s girl group to indie rock.

Wuh woh. Looks like those anonymous sources may be right about Christina Aguilera being totally out of control and headed for rehab. Last night at 2:45 a.m. she and her new boy toy, Matthew Rutler, were pulled over in West Hollywood. Matthew was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

You would think that a song called “Just the Way You Are” would be about loving and accepting a person with all their faults and foibles and so on and so forth. But it turns out that the full title of Irish pop singer Brian McFadden’s new song is “Just the Way You Are (Drunk at the Bar).” And it turns out that this song, far from being about unconditional love and acceptance, is in fact a gift for the committee in charge of picking a new national anthem for the Republic of Daterapia. Check out this chorus, after the jump. Keep reading »
