If You Want To Hear Neil Diamond, It’s Gonna Cost You

A friend of mine took this picture at the American Ale House in State College, PA, and all I can say is I 100 percent understand the sentiment. I used to DJ pretty regularly, and people would come up to me all the time with requests. Sometimes they were nice, and sometimes they were pushy… More »


Weekend Playlist — Cover Up! The Best Cover Songs & Their Original Recordings

A couple of weeks ago, we started talking about what version of the Rolling Stones’ song “Wild Horses” was our respective fave. Ami is partial to the recent “Voice” contestant cover, while I really love The Sundays version. I decided to put together a playlist with some of my favorite covers, alongside the originals (or… More »


Conservative Congressman Says He Really Identifies With Public Enemy

Republican representative and Jason Sudeikis lookalike Trey Radel has not listened to a lot of rap in his lifetime. I’m guessing this, because the man claims that his values are accurately reflected in the music of Public Enemy, and other “so-called gansta rap” artists. Radel is particularly enamoured of the 1989 Public Enemy track “Fight… More »


Kelly Rowland Airs Her “Dirty Laundry” About Beyonce, Domestic Abuse, Fame

Pause your Spotify and listen to Kelly Rowland’s new song “Dirty Laundry” (after the jump) — not only is it intense, but it’s really good. She sings about how hard it was for her to watch her “sister” Beyoncé get A+++-list famous while Kelly was “going through some bullshit,” mostly, it seems, an abusive relationship: “Meanwhile… More »

Here’s Why You Won’t Be Able To Get That New Daft Punk Song Out Of Your Head

Earworms. That’s what super catchy songs are sometimes referred to, because they burrow deep in your psyche and don’t let go. They become the soundtrack to whatever you’re doing — eating, shopping, working — and basically take over any spare brain space. Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” is one of those earwormy tracks –… More »


Dating Don’ts: 12 Things To Know About Dating A Musician

A few years ago, I had to swear off dating musicians. I’d been dating them since high school, both casual guitar-noodlers and career musicians who had songs on CW shows and their faces on T-shirts. Again and again I’d fall for the sensitive guitar player who wears eyeliner … and again and again the same… More »


Tanning Mom’s New Single Is Way Hotter Than Farrah Abraham’s Sex Tape

Take that, Farrah Abraham getting done up the pooper by James Deen! You have been outdone by Tanning Mom! No, she didn’t make a sex tapeTMZ obtained a snippet of Patricia Krentcil’s soon-to-be-released single, “It’s Tan Mom.” I knew it would blow my mind, but I didn’t know how much it would blow my mind.

Lauryn Hill Releases New Song, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

It’s crazy to think about, but this coming August will mark 15 years since the incredible album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released. Since then, the former Fugee has not released another studio album, instead busying herself by having kids (six in total, five with Bob Marley’s son Rohan), practicing her faith with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, pissingMore »


Weekend Playlist: The Frisky’s Ultimate Road Trip Mix

To cap off our Wanderlust content, what could be more fitting than a road trip playlist? Besides a car, gas money, and comfy pants, there’s really nothing more integral to a road trip’s success than a good selection of music. On our recent drive from Oregon to Tennessee, my boyfriend and I didn’t prepare nearly… More »


Check Out Sinead O’Connor’s New Single “Old Lady”

It’s been a rough couple of years for ol’ Sinead. I’m not going to lie. There was her wedding announcement that included the phrase “Can’t. Talk. Cock. In. Mouth. Situation.” and her abrupt divorce 18 days later … which then went back on-again.  Not surprisingly, soon after all this, she announced she had a mentalMore »


Tanning Mom & 7 Other Non-Celebs Who Recorded Singles To Stay Relevant

I guess when the sex tape thing didn’t pull through, Tanning Mom, my muse, had to come up with another way to stay in the spotlight. What about her biopic starring her? I’m dying for that! Anyhow, Patty Krentcil decided to hit the recording studio and cut her first single, “It’s Tan Mom!” The truth… More »


Here’s Beyoncé And Andre 3000’s Cover Of Amy Winehouse’s “Black To Black”

It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.

I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.

But judge for… More »


Kim Gordon Generously Shares Her “Traumatized Good Times Tunes” Rap Playlist

In my experience, breakup music can go two ways: there’s the soft, sad, slow, wallowing type, and then there’s the upbeat and/or aggressive type that makes you feel like you’ve got the world by the balls, and fuck him, anyway. Personally, I usually begin with the former and progress to the latter over time, once… More »


Watch This: All Of 1999 Compressed Into 10 Minutes

It’s been a really long time since I’ve thought about the song “If You Steal My Sunshine,” the movie “Bicentennial Man” (shudder), or the Y2K scare, but this video forced me to confront all those 1999 memories–and many more–in exactly 10 minutes. Before you hit play, be warned that side effects may include involuntarily singing… More »


10 Reasons The Backstreet Boys Have Lasted 20 Years (Illustrated By GIFs)

Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new… More »


Psy’s New “Gentleman” Video: Ridiculous Dancing & A-hole Behavior

Granted, I can’t understand what Korean pop star Psy is singing about in his new song “Gentleman,” his follow up to “Gangnam Style.” But his behavior in this video is anything but gentlemanly: he rips off a woman’s bikini top, pulls a chair out from underneath another, and acts like a general asshole towards women… More »


Macklemore Song Causes Assault & 12 Other Times Music Has Gotten Someone Arrested

Last week, Samantha Malson was arrested for pushing and chocking her boyfriend Lars Hansen after a drunk Hansen refused to stop singing the song “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore. Sure, “Thrift Shop” is a great song, but hearing anything over and over again is going to be annoying.

Poor Lars is hardly the only… More »


What Movies/Music/TV Shows Do You Put On When You Clean?

It’s Spring Cleaning Week here at The Frisky, and in addition to tips on how to organize your makeup and clean out your dating life, I thought it would be an excellent time to pay homage to the movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts that we like to absentmindedly watch and/or listen to while we… More »


Cat Power Takes On The Mean Streets Of “Manhattan”

Cat Power, she of the haunting vocals and paralyzing stage fright, is back with a new video for the song “Manhattan.”  Aside from a newish cropped ‘do, Ms. Power (Chan Marshall) seems like she’s got a new, more positive attitude. And for what it’s worth, those guys dancing in the subway are everywhere and they… More »
