Is this song about Jake G?

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’s Jake Gyllenhaal breakup song. The theory is that Taylor is singing about moving on after getting dumped by Jake and relishing the sweetness she found with Will Anderson from the band Parachute. One clue is that she and Will Anderson dated eight months after Jake and she mentioned “eight months” in the song; Will is also a James Taylor fan and she makes a reference to all her “James Taylor records.” And then there’s a whole bunch of other little digs at Jake — or whomever — about how he never laughed at her jokes and didn’t like when she wore high heels.  I wouldn’t put it past John Mayer to have been a dick like that, either, though. Gurl, we’ve got to help you get better taste in men. [ONTD]

She wore blue velvet...

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 for the foreseeable future. The real question is no longer, “who is she and what is she doing here,” but rather, “should she really be playing in David Lynch territory?”

Del Rey channels the director’s trademark grim atmosphere in a new video ad spot for H&M borrowed straight from the Lynch repertoire, complete with a rendition of “Blue Velvet.” As one of those really awful fangirls who believes in the sanctity of all things Lynchian, I’m not exactly excited about the homage, but I guess if there’s any pop singer who can do this tricky thing justice, it’s probably going to be Lana Del Rey. She’s kind of creepy, and I’m totally into it. [Spin]

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 as, like, a plaid maxi dress. Keep reading »

Pink's Slutty Song

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 cool with in my own life. We have to be aware of the nuanced differences between how different people use “offensive words.” Those words can be powerful or harmful depending on who is using them and how. It’s totally different when I call myself a slut in a positive, pat-on-the-back way than it is when an angry man calls me a slut because I rejected him at a bar. (Or, you know, Rush Limbaugh calls Sandra Fluke a “slut.”) “Slut Like Me” is no great piece of music, though. I wish it was worthy of the debate over women using the word “slut” that it is going to cause!  [YouTube]

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 on Lavigne’s new album together. “When you are having a good time making a record that always comes across in music,” said Lavigne at the time. “The energy’s good so things flow better and that’s what I’m excited about.” Now that the musical fruits of their love will finally be available for public consumption, we all must ask ourselves: are we ready to hear it?
