“Weird Al” Yankovic Parodies Lorde With His New Song & Video For “Foil”

Weird Al Yankovic's Video For "Foil"
Like Lorde's "Royals," Only Much More Useful!

“Weird Al” Yankovic! Still a thing! And he has a new album of relatively funny parody songs called Mandatory Fun. Every day for eight days leading up to the album’s release, Weird Al has been releasing a new music video, and today’s is admittedly not to be missed. “Foil” is a parody of Lorde’s “Royals” and yes, it’s about the highly useful household product. Frankly, I think foil is more worthy of tribute song than those “royals” Lorde was singing about. I mean, you can use it to make a DIY robot costume for Halloween and to cover up your leftovers.

So Rad: 4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony
Watch Lorde Sing "All Apologies"

This is awesome. Last night, Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, just days after the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death from suicide, and when the remaining members of the band took the stage to perform, they were joined by four female rockers filling Cobain’s shoes/vocals. Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Kim Gordon and Lorde each joined bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear on stage to sing a song from Nirvana’s catalogue, and I have a feeling Kurt, a feminist, would have loved it. The RRHOF ceremony won’t be televised until May 31 (on HBO), but some video has already leaked of a few of the performances, including Lorde singing “All Apologies” (above). Not only that, but after the ceremony, Nirvana played a secret show at a club in Brooklyn — check out video of the band, plus Joan Jett, slaying “Smells Like Teen Spirit” after the jump!

James Lowe, AKA Lorde’s Boyfriend, Pens Open Letter About Fame

Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and fuck, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people around me and their transparency. They fail to hide it. I’ve experienced being a target of the tabloids, finding moments I thought I was in safe hands splattered all over the internet, being pushed and shoved, or watching others get pushed and shoved by paparazzi just to get what they think they’re entitled to. While I’m dragging on about the negative aspects, they are only a small part of my world now. There is a bright, shining silver lining to this thing I’ve been exposed to. I’ve had the privilege to sit on an aircraft for 12 hours, cramped, exhausted but happy (like Louis CK once said, “YOU’RE FLYING. YOU’RE SITTING IN A CHAIR IN THE SKY!”). I’ve been able to tell tales of the many amazing people I’ve met along the way – from fellow photographers, to artists I’ve always admired and never thought I’d get to meet, let alone have a simple thing like coffee with… People who seem to scramble the words within your brain and the only thing you end up doing is blurting out ‘HILSKDFLKWELK’ (at some point it’s a verbal greeting, but ends up a flurry of sweat mixed with spit). More importantly, I’ve found a little inspiration from new faces. People I look up to. People whose work I admire so much. For all of this I have to thank the one I look up to the most. Who I admire the most. Who still fills the little voids I try to avoid.

Maybe you’ve heard of James K. Lowe or maybe you haven’t, but as singer Lorde‘s boyfriend, the photographer (who is eight years older than the 17-year-old singer) has a unique perspective on what it’s like to be part of a suddenly famous person’s inner circle. Writing on his blog, Lowe opens up a bit about his relationship with Lorde, who he calls by her given name, Ella, saying that though she’s gone for weeks and months at a time on tour, he “couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far.” Keep reading »

35 Milestones Of Female Friendship

35 BFF Milestones

Taylor Swift and Lorde have been spending quite a bit of time together — shopping, frolicking barefoot on the beach, wearing matching outfits — prompting many onlookers (including us) to refer to them as BFFs. But let’s be honest: as any BFF-havin’ lady knows, wearing matching outfits is only, like, level 3 out of 300 when it comes to a true best friendship. As a female friendship blossoms, the milestones come flying in fast. Some are fun and some are gut-wrenching — the first time you make a joke that makes your friend laugh so hard she farts; the first time you get crushes on the same guy; the first time you come up with dorky nicknames for each other; the first time you get in a fight that’s not instantly fixable. Should T-Swift and Lorde to make a real go of it, here are some BFF firsts they have to look forward to.
