If you’re in the path of Hurricane Sandy and are hunkering down at home, you’re going to need some tunes. I’ve put together this handy Hurricane playlist, filled with songs about, duh, hurricanes and rain. This is not to make light of a serious situation, of course, but we can at least add some background music as we all cross our fingers that the power doesn’t go out, our windows don’t break, and the shit is over soon. Take a listen, after the jump! Keep reading »

Beyonce Joins Jay-Z On Stage During Final Brooklyn Performance

I’m a lucky girl. Over the last, oh, 10 days, I think I’ve said, “This is the best day of my life!” at least a handful of times. First, when Wil Wheaton posted a link to my essay on writing “Star Trek” fanfic on his blog and said it was “fantastic.” Then again, when I went to an event featuring Cheryl Strayed, author of Tiny Beautiful Things and Wild. And again, when I went to hear Zadie Smith read from her new book, NW. Friday was another best day ever, as I had two psychic readings, both of which promised similar blessings ahead.

Saturday was the latest in this string of awesomely memorable days, because I went to see Jay-Z perform at Barclays Center (where his Brooklyn Nets will be playing). I’m already a longtime Jay-Z fan, but I was especially psyched because I had a gut feeling that if there was going to be a night when wife Beyonce would get up on stage with him, it would be this one, because A) it was the final night and B) the show was streaming live online. Turns out, my gut was right. Keep reading »

The Superior Knowles Has Arrived!

Beyonce is awesome, yeah, yeah, but I happen to have a way bigger girl crush on her younger sister Solange. I loved her album Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams, but it didn’t get nearly as much attention as, say, Beyonce’s last outfit change. A shame, really. Well, Solange is back with a new song called “Losing You,” and it was so worth the wait. The song’s smooth, alt-pop airiness perfectly showcases Solange’s vocals, while the video, featuring Solange and her friends hanging out with Cape Town’s Gentleman of Baconogo, is just straight up stylish. I still love you Beyonce, but damn if it isn’t time for Solange to get her due.

Michael Jackson Had An Anti-Abortion Song?

Sony released a 25th anniversary remastered edition of Michael Jackson’s Bad this week, and among the eight previously unreleased songs is … an anti-abortion anthem. “Song Groove,” aka “Abortion Papers,” includes lyrics like, “Those abortion papers / Signed in your name against the words of God / Those abortion papers / Think about life, I’d like to have my child.” At Slate, Amanda Marcotte deems it “a Christianity-heavy screed.” And at Wonkette, Jesse Taylor points out, “Hey, if you abort ‘em, you can’t dangle ‘em.” But Taylor and Marcotte also agree—the song is oddly “catchy.” Read more (and listen to the song!)…

So, Christina Aguilera has a new single out and it’s called … wait for it … “Fuck Your Body.” I wonder what it’s about? No seriously, I kind of hoped the filthiness of the title would signal a return to her dirrty days, but alas, it’s just kind of a techno heavy dance ballad. Meh. Listen after the jump!
