Alanis Morrissette Covers Green Day’s “Basket Case” As A Ballad

Last week, Billie Joe Armstrong melted down onstage at the IHeartMusic Festival and over the weekend he checked into rehab for substance abuse. Here his pal Alanis Morrissette covers Green Day’s song “Basket Case” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in the most Alanis Morrisette-y way possible, meaning as a ballad.  She told Billboard.com, “We’re all figuring…

Be My Boyfriend: Vegetable Musician

Dear Vegetable Musician,

Hello. Nice to meet you. I don’t know your name, but I came across this video of you playing your celery nose flute and developed an instantaneous crush. Some people think celery is a boring vegetable. You’ve proved them wrong! Celery has so much untapped potential (it goes great with…

Taylor Swift’s New Song “Begin Again” Is Supposedly About Jake Gyllenhaal

When Jake Gyllenhaal started dating Taylor Swift back in 2010, he must’ve known he was gambling that a song might be written about him down the road. So, is this it? If a blogger from Oh No You Didn’t! with a lot of time on his/her hands is to be believed, “Begin Again,” is Tay-Tay’…

Watch Lana Del Rey Take On David Lynch In This TV Ad For H&M

There was a moment there when I thought Lana Del Rey would be but a blip on our collective cultural radar given that, um, everyone kind of seemed to hate her, but with big-name brands like Mulberry, Jaguar, and H&M backing the controversial songstress, it seems like Lana will have a role in the zeitgeist…

The Stevie Nicks Documentary Of My Dreams

“In Your Dreams,” the Stevie Nicks documentary of my dreams, will be premiering at the Mill Valley Film Festival on October 12. The cameras followed the Gold Dust Woman during the making of her most recent solo record, also called In Your Dreams. Obviously, I would watch Stevie Nicks talk about a piece of poo…

The Inevitable “Call Me Maybe” / “Gangnam Style” Mashup Is Here

“Call Me Maybe”‘s summer is over and now it’s time for “Gangnum Style”‘s fall.

But as we transition from “I just met you”s to “Hey, sexy ladies” — just as we doff our maxi dresses for cozy plaid — let’s enjoy a mashup that combines the best of both worlds. Think of it…

Hallelujah, It’s The “Call Me Maybe” Chorus!

Is there anything funnier than overly-earnest sopranos belting out “Call Me Maybe”? This Carly Rae Jepsen cover by the 3Penny Chorus and Orchestra isn’t supposed to be funny — or maybe it is? — but it’s put a smile on my face this morning. [YouTube]…

How Do We Feel About Pink’s New Song “Slut Like Me”?

A Frisky reader sent me the lyric video for Pink’s new song “Slut Like Me” and asked what I think. To be honest, musically, I think it sucks. But I have a feeling he was asking what I really think about Pink owning the word “slut” and using it to describe herself — which I’m

“This Man Beats Women” Sticker Stuck On Chris Brown CDs

CDs! Hahahahaha! Remember those? But seriously: someone at HMV stores in London was not kidding around when they posted stickers reading “Warning: Do not buy this album! This man beats women!” on Chris Brown’s latest album. Rumor has it the CDs were sticker-bombed by feminist activists. Bad-ass! [Gawker]…

Many of you will regard this as another sign of the end days, but here it is: Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne have recorded a duet and, according to L.A. Reid, it’s a “really good record” and set to be released “very soon.” As we all know, the First Couple of Canada met while working…

10 Ways Guys Have Ruined Our Concert Experiences

I was telling Ami about an awkward concert experience I had with a guy friend recently, and she was like, “You know, I’ve had so many awful concert mishaps, and most of them involve a guy.” Turns out everyone on the Frisky staff has had at least one concert ruined by a dude, and the…

Saturday Playlist: Your Almost Autumn Soundtrack

Happy Saturday! And a begrudging Happy Almost Autumn. One of the only things that helps me ease out of summer and into fall is listening to music that just sounds better when the temperatures are cooling and the leaves are starting to fall. A playlist for you to enjoy, after the jump!

My Little Pony And Ginuwine Go Together Like WHOA (NSFWish)

A music video for Ginuwine’s “Pony” featuring My Little Ponies doing unspeakable things is so wrong that it’s right. It’s some straight up Pony Sutra stuff. Think Charlie Sheen’s harem house, but with humans. [Buzzfeed]…

Matchbox Twenty Debuts “Overjoyed” Video

The Frisky staff laughs at me like a bunch of hyenas whenever I bring up how much I love Matchbox Twenty, because sometimes The Frisky staff are a bunch of jerks like that. But I hardly care today because this week, the band released a new music video for the forthcoming album North and the song…

Katy Perry And Shannon Woodward Mock Taylor Swift’s “Never, Ever” Song

Katy Perry, her pal Shannon Woodward and Katy’s cat Kitty Purry posted a video mocking Taylor Swift’s latest song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” I don’t understand the point of this, other than to be kinda mean.[PopCrush]

Saturday Playlist: Secret Goth Slumber Party

Don’t let the name fool you — this mix is purely for mellow nighttime listening. Sure, there’s a couple of “less mellow” jams on there, too, but for the most part, these are some of my fave slightly darkwave-y, at-home-with-the-cats kind of tracks. Enjoy! And tell me what your songs of summer have been i…

Azealia Banks’s Banned “Dazed & Confused” Cover Isn’t Half As Bad As It Could Be

When I heard that Harlem-born rapper and lyricist Azealia Banks’s cover of art and fashion mag Dazed & Confused had been banned in seven countries before the issue even hit stands, I anticipated something infinitely more vulgar than her flipping off the camera as she inflates/fellates a condom. I mean, that’s practically some Taylor Swift
