Grammy Awards 2014: And The Nominees Are…

Grammy Awards 2014: And The Nominees Are...

The Grammy Award nominees were announced last night and the results were about what you’d expect — lots of nominations for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry Justin Timberlake and, yes, Robin Thicke. I’m most excited that Kendrick Lamar got a lot of love, but am DISMAYED that Janelle Monae was overlooked. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! Keep reading »

John Mayer & Katy Perry Did A Really Emo Photoshoot For Their Duet

John Mayer & Katy Perry Did A Really Emo Photoshoot For Their Duet

So John Mayer and Katy are all in lovvvvve, so in lovvvvve that they recorded a duet together called “Who You Love.” Love love love! LOVE. So much love. Anyway, the duo went for a kind of moody, sixties, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez vibe with the black and white cover photo, part of a larger shoot that you can see after the jump. My favorite photo is the one where John’s denim shirt (natch) has amputated Katy’s hand. Also, they look like siblings which makes me sort of uncomfy. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »

Playlist: The Most Underrated Songs We Love (Plus, Add Yours!)

This morning on my way into work, John Mayer’s “Assassin” came on my iTunes, and I said “Ugh, this song is so underrated.” Then I realized I said it out loud on the train and the lady next to me shot me one of those “whatever you say” glares, having no idea what I was listening to. But the song speaks to me. It’s haunting in a beautiful way, but it was never pimped out like the majority of John’s other songs—which is probably why I love it.

I listened on to one of my favorite jams and realized there are SO many great tunes, by well-known and lesser known artists alike, that are completely underrated. Some songs just never made it big and others are simply underplayed and under appreciated for how freakin’ awesome they are. Because why listen to fantastic, fresh songs when every radio station can play Lady Gaga’s “Applause” one hundred times between breakfast and lunch, amiright? Keep reading »

Alison Gold Is Done Celebrating “Chinese Food,” Gets Roofied In Weird Video For “ABCDEFG”

Alison Gold Is Done Celebrating "Chinese Food," Gets Roofied In Weird Video For "ABCDEFG"
R Is For Roofied?

Alison Gold is one of those post-Justin Bieber/Rebecca Black aspiring pop star types who is looking to hit it big via the interwebs. Her first effort was the vaguely racist ode to egg rolls and wonton soup, “Chinese Food,” the video for which featured her creepy producer, Patrice Wilson, bouncing around in a panda suit. The video for her latest song, “ABCDEFG,” has Wilson in an even creepier role as a guy at a club who keeps putting mysterious “potions” in Gold’s drink as she sings about the alphabet with a bunch of Muppets. “Sesame Street” this is not. I doubt Jim Henson would approve. [Fishwrapper]

Listen To Lady Gaga’s “Do What U Want” (Featuring R. Kelly)

Listen To Lady Gaga's "Do What U Want" (Featuring R. Kelly)
Are You Sure You Want To Say That To R. Kelly, Lady Gaga?

On one hand, Lady Gaga singing “do what you want to my body” to R. Kelly, of all people, is disturbingly hilarious in that the self-described “Pied Piper of R&B” has a prior history of doing some pretty, um, icky things — is a golden shower really what you want, Gaga? On the other hand, the song itself is fantastic and indicates that perhaps Gaga’s upcoming ARTPOP record will be much better than the silly Jeff Koons cover art led us to believe. Fingers crossed!

Halloween Inspiration Board: Lorde

Halloween Inspiration Board: Lorde

Twerkin’ like Miley not your style this Halloween? Go the alternative route by channeling your inner teenage witchy goth as Lorde, the rising star on the pop scene. Lorde has got a thing for black mesh body-con dresses, almost black makeup, and the kind of jewelry that’s likely been cleansed by some new agey priestess. Memorize the lyrics to “Royals” or “Tennis Court,” wear your hair in long waves or plaited into a crown braid (as above) following this tutorial, and you’ll be a dead ringer for next year’s big Grammy winner (I predict, anyway). Deets on the items above, after the jump! Keep reading »
