Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Ratatat To Christina Aguilera

It’s Tuesday, and that means sweet new jams, especially if you live in North Korea. Yep, that’s right. In retaliation for sinking their battle ship, South Korea is blasting FM radio at North Korea. Take that! Music is powerful, man. If only we fought all our wars this way. Hey, maybe some of this week’s releases will make it to the front lines. We’ve got Christina Aguilera going bionic, Grace Potter planting a CD, Hanson shouting it out, Deer Tick’s getting bitten, Teenage Fanclub lurking in the shadows, Ratatat giving us a beat, Tokyo Police Club coming out swinging, and The Delta Spirit rising up.

How To Find Your Summer Song Of 2010

If you’re still having trouble deciding what your summer song is going to be this year (I’m going with a song called “Moves” by The New Pornographers), there’s this cool quiz on BuzzFeed that can help you figure it out. Of course, if you don’t neatly fit a specific stereotype, it may be a little harder to get a perfect match. When asked, I said I’d wear side-swept bangs over combat boots and the quiz assigned me a song by Arcade Fire, a band I haven’t really listened to in four years. On second thought, maybe you’re better off listening to a bunch of music and deciding for yourself what you like … [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Danielle Staub Is The Latest “Real Housewife” To Record A Single

OK, just because you are a “Real Housewife” and your face is plastered all over TV doesn’t mean you have to start making music. It was cute when NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” recorded “Tardy for the Party.” Then just absurd when LuAnn de Lesseps made “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” But now one of the ladies from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is taking her turn in the recording studio. Danielle Staub is making her first foray into pop music by recording a duet with openly gay singer Lori Michaels called “Real Close.” Keep reading »

Christina Hendricks Is One Badass Android

Christina Hendricks, known for her role on “Mad Men” and her unrivaled rack, also makes a pretty friggin’ sweet fighter pilot/android. She shows her range in this new music video for “Ghost Inside” by Broken Bells, the side project from James Mercer of Danger Mouse and The Shins. It’s one part glamour, one part kick-butt female action hero, and all totally awesome. [Culture Vulture] Keep reading »

M.I.A. Writes Song About New York Times Reporter


Even after Tweeting journalist Lynn Hirschberg’s phone number, M.I.A. is still on the war path in retaliation for The NY Times Magazine cover story that she feels portrays her in a negative light. This weekend, she unleashed her anger on her blog, where she posted snippets of the interview she claims were taken out of context. And one of them is about a detail as trivial as what flavor French fry she ate during the interview. Now M.I.A. has even written a song about the debacle called “I’m a Singer.” The lyrics go, “I’m a singer/Never said anything else/I didn’t lie to you/Thinking of somebody else.” Oh, and another choice snippet: “You’re a racist, I wouldn’t trust you one bit.” I think it’s time for M.I.A. to drop it and move on.

New Kylie Minogue Video, “All The Lovers,” Features A Lot Of People In Their Underpants

In Kylie Minogue‘s new music video, “All the Lovers,” the pop star says all she wants to do is dance, but for Kylie that means floating on a giant mound of half-naked people pawing at each other and her. Maybe this is some sort of new dance? We’ll call it The Love Pile. Perhaps they were all inspired because Kylie herself is not wearing any pants in this video. Oh, and then a white horse shows up. It’s a little bit Victoria’s Secret, a little bit Spencer Tunick, and a little bit Greco-Roman orgy. Keep reading »

Hamsters Rap To Black Sheep In New Kia Commercial

I don’t think Kia Motors has improved the reputation of their cars, but the company has definitely stepped their advertising game up a few notches. Last year Kia introduced hamsters and people in their commercials, and to carry that theme in the latest commercial, Kia has rodents rapping and dancing to Black Sheep’s classic “The Choice Is Yours.” There’s no need for the “New York transit line” in this hilarious Kia commercial.

LuAnn De Lesseps Debuts “Money Can’t Buy You Class” Video

The moment you all have been waiting for has arrived! The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has released the video for “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” It’s amazing what some hair extensions and a super talented makeup artist can do. LuAnn looks really pretty, but the song still sucks hiney! And is it just me or does it look as if she’s giving O-face when the video is at rest? Anyhoo, enjoy … you know you want to click play.
