7 Reasons To Love Country Music (Or At Least Give It A Chance)

I grew up in a small, rural town where muddy trucks would cruise up and down main street with rifles mounted in the back window and country music blasting from the speakers. I grew up hating country music. I thought it was stupid, cheesy, and ignorant. To me, country music was the soundtrack to a…

Snoop Dogg For Hot Pocket

Snoop Dogg and DeStorm teamed up for Hot Pockets and cooked up  microwaved this jingle. Please enjoy the extreme cheesy goodness of “Pocket Like It’s Hot.” (It’s about the length it takes to prepare one.) Pimped out microwave sleeve not included. [The Life Files]…

Taylor Swift Dabbles In Dubstep: “I Knew You Were Trouble”

The words “Taylor Swift” and “dubstep” in the same sentence together suggests you will soon be stabbing your own ears with a pair of blunt scissors. But you know what? “I Knew You Were Trouble” is actually good. It’s not dubstep-dubstep in a Skillrex-y kinda way. But it’s not Taylor Swift butchering the genre either.

Listen To Amy Winehouse In Nas’ Song “Cherry Wine”

A new Amy Winehouse song! Well, sort of. Nas has released his rap “Cherry Wine” featuring vocals from Amy and it’ll tug at your heartstrings that this amazing voice is gone. [Vulture]
Speaking of voices, “Grease” co-stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are reuniting for a Christmas album that already sounds like it…

This Is What Sky Ferreira’s New Track Reminds Me Of

Stick with me here: So, electro-singer/blonde moppet Sky Ferreira released a new video for her song “Everything Is Embarrassing,” where she pouts around a playground and looks really bored and annoyed with everything. The song is minimal and vaguely catchy in the way that the sample songs on a Casio keyboard are — inoffensive and…

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…
