In Case You Were Wondering, I Still Hate Lady Gaga

I couldn't feasibly be any less interested in Lady Gaga's Vogue cover. Frankly, I'm shocked that Anna Wintour would even go for it, considering that Gaga is so appallingly uninteresting at this point to everybody except her harem of zealots. I would rather see literally anybody, even Lea Michele, on the September issue. Okay, so maybe…

“Fifty Shades of Grey: The Album” Is Now A Thing

You guys, it is only Tuesday and I've already read a press release about a Fifty Shades of Grey-themed compilation of classical music. This doesn't really spark a lot of confidence for the rest of the week, does it? Yes, it's true: the 15 pieces of music that are mentioned in the books comprisising the Fifty

Jessica Paré Ups Her Cool Quotient, Sings With The Jesus And Mary Chain

I was already kind of obsessed with Jessica Paré, who plays Megan Draper on "Mad Men," especially after she did that little French song-and-dance number at the beginning of last season, but now I'm officially smitten. The actress sang with The Jesus and Mary Chain at a handful of gigs this past week, doing a pretty…

Saturday Playlist: Schmoopy Summer Love Mix

Schmoopy-ville: Population 1. That's me! This summer I'm head over heels for a new fella and as a result most of the songs I listen to on Spotify are pretty happy of late. A bunch of these are ones my dude sent me. A couple are silly pop songs that make me think of him.

Saturday Playlist: Let’s Go To The Beach, Bitch!

I basically think about going to the beach, being at the beach, and listening to music on the beach, like, year round. Currently, these are the jams I would chill out to while digging my toes in the sand. Enjoy and happy Saturday, y'all!

Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace On Transitioning While Married

"I'm very early on in my transition – I still blur a line – but I know the changes are going to be coming, and I fear how [my wife] is going to interpret them and whether that will affect if she's physically attracted to me is terrifying. But ideally you marry someone because you…

Goodbye Snoop Dogg, Hello Snoop Lion

Snoop Dogg is branching out into new musical styles and more intimidating animal pseudonyms. His Snoopness is about to release a reggae album, under the new monicker Snoop Lion, Rolling Stone reports. Read more …

Florence Welch On The Moment She Lost Her Voice

"I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show ... I had a full check up and [my doctor] said that there wasn't any permanent damage that couldn't be restored without rest. So if…

Saturday Playlist: The Soundz Of Manchester, A Mix For Your Inky Soul

The thing I like best about Spotify is that I can make a playlist for every nuance of mood I might be experiencing (and I have many). This week, I've been listening to The Smiths a lot. Those of you who are long-time readers know that I used to be goth in high school. Back…

The New Kids On The Block Are Shirtless And Rocking Porn Star ‘Staches

Speaking of '90s musicians, Donnie Wahlberg recently tweeted this photo of the New Kids hanging out in what looks like a locker room(?!), mustached and shirtless (with the exception of Jonathan Knight, who's sporting a modest white T and bearing an uncomfortable resemblance to Adrien Brody). So, what do you think of the guys' new…

10 ’90s Musicians You Forgot About — Where Are They Now?

Basically, if I had my way, I'd spend all of my time thinking about and researching the '90s. But since that's not a viable career option, I suppose this gallery of 10 '90s superstars will have to do. After the jump, what happened to the guy from Teenage Fanclub, the dude from Suede, and eight…

Saturday Playlist: An All Girl Summer Jam Mix, Just For You

I listen to music all day while I'm working and, thanks to Spotify, I also make my own mixes. I like this, especially, because I used to DJ a ton and I think I'm pretty good at mixes -- figuring out what follows which song, and how it should all flow together. I made thi…

Lykke Li Dares To Cover “Silver Springs” By Fleetwood Mac

I was scared to hear Lykke Li's cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Silver Springs" on the soon-to-be-released album Just Tell Me That You Want Me -- A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac as it is my favorite song of all time. I know I like to exaggerate, but I am not exaggerating this time. It is seriously…

Mischa Barton Inexplicably Runs Around In Leopard Print Bra & Panties In Noel Gallagher’s New Music Video

I never understood what was the big deal about Mischa Barton, other than a pretty face and a nice body and some decent-enough acting skills. She stars in the "Everybody's On The Run" music video for Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and, well, she's inexplicably running around in leopard print bra and panties. Edgy, I…

Inspiring Quotes From New York Mag’s Fiona Apple Interview

Confession: Last night, I read the New York magazine piece, "I Just Want to Feel Everything': Hiding Out With Fiona Apple Musical Hermit," not once, but three times. I think it was one of the best music interviews I've read in a long time. I've always been a Fiona Apple fan. Tidal came out my first year…

5 Ridiculous Misconceptions My Boyfriend Has About Carly Rae Jepsen

My boyfriend Nick is an old man trapped in a 26-year-old's body. He's usually in his pajama pants by 7:30 p.m., it's not uncommon for him to use the phrase "Why is everyone in such a hurry?" while driving, and his knowledge of pop culture is mostly limited to the "House Party" trilogy. This i…

Shia LaBeouf’s Penis Steals The Show In Sigur Ros Music Video

Shia LaBeouf and Shia LaBeouf's penis are the stars of Sigur Ros' music video for "Fjogur Piano," or, as they put it, a mystery film experiment. I call it eight-and-a-half-minutes of WTF Is Going On. [Huffington Post] Vile person Glenn Beck is planning what he calls an anti-"Glee" show, whatever that may mean. I gue…

Watch This: A Capella Covers Of Hit ’90s Songs

We've seen quite a few a capella videos lately, and many of them have been very impressive. However, this is definitely the first one to include the theme song from "Bill Nye the Science Guy" and Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise." Get ready for a nostalgia bomb, '90s kids! [Buzzfeed]…

Father’s Day Field Guide: Dad Music

Most dads--even the weird ones--have one thing in common: their taste in music. After being lectured about the underrated glory of certain bands and seeing them go crazy with their steering wheel drum solos while driving us to soccer practice, we feel we have a pretty good sense of the "Dad Music" genre, and we…

Colin Powell (Yes, Seriously) Sings “Call Me Maybe”

Well, well, well. Look who it is. Colin Powell, former Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, was on CBS  this morning and added himself to the pantheon of "Call Me Maybe" covers. Technically it's not a cover — he just sings a few bars with Gayle King — but its still clear the…
