Rihanna’s “Rockstar 101″ Full Video


You peeped the preview, now check out the full video for Rihanna‘s “Rockstar 101.” It’s rather enjoyable, especially her sexier version of Slash from Guns N’ Roses and the weird “True Blood” Maryann Foster-esque scenes about two-thirds of the way through. Plus, the video is much more exciting and attention-grabbing in black and white, unlike the preview. Oh, and there’s quite a bit of Rihanna rubbing herself and writhing on the floor. Good times, indeed! Keep reading »

Quotable: Lady Gaga Loves That People Think She Has A Penis

“I love the rumor that I have a penis. I’m fascinated by it. In fact, it makes me love my fans even more that this rumor is in the world because 17,000 of them come to an arena every night and they don’t care if I’m a man, a woman, a hermaphrodite, gay, straight, transgendered, or transsexual. They don’t care! They are there for the music and the freedom.”

Jonas Brothers Trapped And Other Concert Catastrophes!

In what I’m sure would constitute many a tweenager’s wildest dream, the Jonas Brothers were trapped in an elevator for 45 minutes last Saturday after a free outdoor concert. I like to imagine hundreds of girls running from the American Girl doll store in tears, tearing our their hair and screaming for their rescue. There were eight people in the 21-person elevator, including the Bros’ security guard Big Rob, Chef Tim Love, and their photographer, Rob Hoffman, who videotaped the ordeal. When asked who freaked out first, Joe said, “Me and Nick … It went from, ‘Okay, this is hilarious, we’re stuck in an elevator, okay press the button,’ to ‘This is crazy, okay, I can’t breathe, this is insane.’” But Nick insists he only panicked because of his diabetes, “I just didn’t have my [blood-sugar] checker with me. No one had it on them, and I was afraid that if [my blood-sugar level] went low in an elevator we wouldn’t be able to do anything about it.” The fire department eventually rescued the Tiger Beat heartthrobs with axes.

It seems like, despite all the preparations, something always goes wrong at concerts. So we rounded up some concert catastrophes — enjoy! Keep reading »

The Sexiest Album Covers Ever That Came Out Not Sexy

It’s a scientific fact that you’re more likely to buy something if the advertising features someone you’d like to bone, be it a Victoria’s Secret commercial or the cover of a box of sexy, sexy Cheerios.

The recording industry knows this, but sometimes forgets that not every musician is suitable for the role of sexy cover model. So, we get unintentionally hilarious/horrifying results like this one. Read more Keep reading »

Tinie Tempah’s “Frisky” Is The Frisky Anthem

OK, Tinie Tempah’s “Frisky” isn’t the official anthem for The Frisky, but it does say the word “frisky” in it. I’d never heard of Mr. Tempah until today, but apparently he’s a London-born and based rapper and MC whose first big hit was called “Wifey.” He’s also released a series of mixtapes with interesting titles: Hood Economics Room 147: The 80 Minute Course and Sexy Beast: Volume 1. “Frisky” is his second single. It follows on the heels of “Pass Out.” I’m sensing a theme here. Wikipedia describes the “Frisky” track as “Electro-grime, hip hop, drum and bass, dubstep,” but it sounds mostly like your average (or, well, honestly, sub-par) pop-rap to me. Also, they should say “frisky” more. [Vimeo] Keep reading »

Sneak Peek: Rihanna’s New Video For “Rockstar 101″

Here’s 29 seconds from Rihanna‘s soon-to-be-released video for her new song, “Rockstar 101.” Alongside fashion-and-music peers Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga, Rihanna is rocking the latex look and wears a brilliant scarlet wig. It’s a little bit Thierry Mugler, a little bit Rachael from “Blade Runner,” and not at all ’80s hair band. I think Rihanna is great, and she looks terrific, but I wouldn’t mind seeing her in a music video where she does something other than rub her hands all over herself. Agree?

Album Drop: This Week’s New Releases, From Reggie Watts To LCD Soundsystem

Oh, baby! This is one of those weeks where there are too many jams and too little time. For starters, Reggie Watts, that sexy beat-makin’ weirdo, finally busts out his first awesome record. Then, LCD Soundsystem’s new tracks are giving us the get-down dance fever. Plus, the Black Keys went all bluesy and badass; Nas and Damian Marley team up for a record of rad rhymes; Janelle Monae goes droid’; Tracey Thorn throws some haterade on marriage; Jamie Lidell changes everything for the better; and Band of Horses debut their first major label record. Now, normally here’s where I tell you to get your headphones on, but I know you did it on your own after that list of tempting new tracks. So, without further blabber, let’s let the tunes speak for themselves, after the jump! Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Shoots “Alejandro” Video Sneak Peek

Look! It’s Lady Gaga on the set of her new video for “Alejandro,” which is that song she caterwauled on “American Idol” recently. The look: lemon meringue rubber. [Twitter] Keep reading »

Grannies For Gaga

If Lady Gaga got all of her “little monsters” together, she could probably start a Gaga-lution. But not all of her monsters are so little. As it so happens, Gaga is involved in a good romance with the over-50 crowd. What should we call them? “Big monsters”? Apparently, the “big monsters” are all about Gaga’s music. Step away from the iPod, Grandma! Must make some lively bridge conversation. If she has such a big elderly following, does this mean she’ll consider doing an all-geriatric concert, no earplugs necessary? After the jump, PopEater caught up with a few of Gaga’s most mature monsters. Keep reading »
