James Franco: The Album

James Franco continues his quest to master every art form out there—from directing to writing to sculpture. Now, he’s a musician too! On July 12, James will be releasing his debut album, Turn It Up, a collaboration with Kalup Linzy, the drag-loving performance artist who James invited for an appearance on “General Hospital.” Thus this side project goes by the name Kalup and Franco. The duo will be making music videos full of “surprise guest cameos” for the three songs on the EP.

So the big question — will this album be good? Keep reading »

Lil B Titles Album “I’m Gay,” Receives Major Backlash

The hip hop world isn’t exactly known for being gay-friendly, what with the frequent homophobic rhymes and someone like 50 Cent going as far as to joke, “I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding” on Twitter. So it was a pretty bold move when rapper Lil B announced last week that his new album will be called I’m Gay. He explained to MTV News that the title is meant to be supportive of the LGBT community. “I’m very gay, but I love women. I’m not attracted to men in any way. I’ve never been attracted to a man in my life. But yes I am gay, I’m so happy. I’m a gay, heterosexual male,” he said. “I got major love for the gay and lesbian community, and I just want to push less separation and that’s why I’m doing it.”

His fans, however, aren’t so thrilled. Keep reading »

Apple Attempts To Bring Albums Back

Remeber those things, what were they called? Oh yeah! Albums. Back in the day, before we had iTunes, Limewire, YouTube and other internet-y things we actually had to physically buy disks containing music from a real, 3-D store! Well those days are over. But wait, Apple is saying, not so fast. Keep reading »

Crave: Jenny Owen Youngs’ “Led To The Sea”

We don’t develop girl crushes on many women. In fact, we’re kind of picky about who gets our admiration, because not many possess smarts, looks, spunk, and silliness in one package. Jenny Owen Youngs meets our criteria, and we can’t wait for her album Transmitter Failure to come out next month. We snuck a listen, and the songs are fun without being fluffy, with witty lines we wish we’d said ourselves.

Download Jenny Owen Youngs’ song “Led to the Sea,” FOR FREE! The Led to the Sea EP is out now, and Jenny’s album Transmitter Failure hits stores May 26.

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of June 3rd 2008

  • Goddamn you half-emo guys, you do it to me every time. To follow up the poptastic single that makes even my vegetarian roommate want a spoonful of Pork and Beans, Weezer has a new classic, cheap, and colorful record- The Red Album. Sigh, Rivers Cuomo may not beThe Greatest Man Whoever Lived, but he’s still lovable like his pale gansta rap track.

    Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of May 27th 2008

  • Rihanna’s new single, “Take A Bow” is out just in time to be your slow summer jam. She looks rad pouting in red lipstick in the video, but the soon-to-be hit is about someone who has been breakin’ Rihanna’s heart! In the track of her tears, just like in Madonna’s Take A Bow, Rihanna applauds her lover for being a good liar and then dumps him. Hmmm, sounds like her last rumored BF, actor Josh Hartnett. Let this be a warning to her new man, pop star Chris Brown. If you eff it up, she’ll get her revenge and cash in for it too.

    The Daily Hotness: Joaquin Phoenix

    Like Scarlett Johansson, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton before him, Joaquin Phoenix is recording an album. The actor, who manages to make a cleft palate sexy, discovered he had a knack for singing after playing Johnny Cash in Walk The Line. He’s been workig on his record with Tim Burgess, frontman for the U.K. band the Charlatans. Buzz for Scarlett’s album is bad (Us Weekly called it a bust!), but we have a little more faith in Joaquin’s pipes. [Perez Hilton] Keep reading »

    Scarlett Johansson Churns Out Her First Single

    Catherine and I disagree on very few things — the musical talent of The Counting Crows, meat, this song, and perhaps the notion of Scarlett Johansson fancying herself a popstar all together. This is the video for the first single off Scarlett’s upcoming album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, in which most of the songs are Tom Waits covers. I love Tom Waits so I should hate this whole stupid idea. But I don’t. Keep reading »

    Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of April 22nd 2008

  • The only thing I want to grab today is Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords (Bret’s bodacious, too). In fact, this duo is probably why girls are born with two hands — FYI, that’s not scientific or anything. As lady luck would have it, they’ve finally released all their funky, sexy songs from their HBO Show as an album, out today! Flight of the Conchords will serenade you with classics like “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)”, or my personal fav, “Business Time”. Mmm hmm. Tonight, I’ll be clutching my pictures of Jemaine and Bret from the Bowie episode at my private listening party. [Amazon.com]
