Jack White’s Awesome Record Truck


What is Jack White up to now that The White Stripes have hung up their black, white, and red gear? He is trying to rectify the fact that, as explained in this video, “97 percent of high school aged kids have NEVER been to a standalone record store. Never.” And so Jack has devised the Rolling Record Store, which comes stocked with records from his label, Third Man. Jack will take the store on the road from his home in Nashville to Austin for South by Southwest next week. Very cool. My only question is—yellow? What has happened to you, Jack?

Get Yer Ke$ha Condoms

“If you come to a live show, it’s a sensory assault. You will leave covered in sweat, beer, glitter, and, just maybe, you’ll get a special edition Ke$ha condom. If it breaks, you have to name your daughter or son after me.”

Ke$ha tells the BBC that at upcoming concerts, 10,000 specialty Ke$ha condoms will be fired out of cannon at the audience. The condoms are made by Lifestyles and have the word “cannibal” printed on the wrapper. I think we know who to blame if ‘Ke$ha’ shoots to the top of the most popular baby name list in 2011. Oh, and if Aquafresh starts making a whiskey flavored toothpaste in Ke$ha’s honor, I am outta here. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Katy Perry Covers “Born This Way”


Covering songs is dangerous. You have to pick something obscure enough that a zillion people haven’t already done it, but recognizable enough that the audience will want to sing along. You have to give the song your own spin, while keeping true enough to the original that the song maintains its basic shape. So I think it’s a little strange that Katy Perry decided to cover “Born This Way,” Lady Gaga‘s new single that’s been accused of being a Madonna “Express Yourself” rip-off. Why? Well, because it’s so darn new. Also, I think the song is kind of a snoozer, so it you aren’t gonna pop out of an egg/womb-thingy for it, why bother? [People] Keep reading »

Willow Smith Is A 21st Century Girl


Willow Smith isn’t waiting for the sun to come out tomorrow. She has dropped her new video for “21st Century Girl,” which takes her to the desert, where she turns sand into a butterfly and runs with wolves. Well, until she pulls some buildings into place and peels away the desert to reveal a city street. I was admiring how amazing her yellow puff sleeve top looks with that red Galliano-esque skirt when I remembered that she is actually a 21st Century Girl—born on October 31, 2000. And then I just felt kinda old. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Avril Lavigne’s First Post-Brody Jenner Album

Confession: I love karaoking Avril Lavigne songs. I mean, “He was a sk8er boi/ she said see ya later boi?” The girl is obviously a genius. Okay, okay—in her defense, that was a song she penned at age 17 when everything seemed so complicated, even though it wasn’t really. Now, nine years later—after a divorce and a year dating Brody Jenner—I’m sort of curious to see what the Canadian rocker/pop star sounds like. Her new album still boasts tracks like “4 Real” that have me a little scared it’ll be more of the same, but I’m crossing my fingers that there will be a bit of growth on this new one. So consider this a recommendation with a heavy wink.

Gwyneth Paltrow Sings Joan Jett, Pens Deal For Album


Gwyneth Paltrow is returning to “Glee” and this time her character, substitute teacher Holly Holiday, is teaching sex ed. In this clip, she rocks black leather, does a chair dance, and strips down while singing Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch” for Will Schuester and the kids of New Directions. There, oh yeah.

At the same time, Gwyneth Paltrow: The Album is even closer to becoming a reality. Keep reading »
