Hey Ya! Watch Outkast Reunite At Coachella

Hey Ya! Watch Outkast Reunite At Coachella
Watch Their Entire Set Here!

Didn’t make it to Coachella in time (or at all) to see Outkast reunite? No worries, their entire set is above! (That crowd is not nearly hyped enough, especially considering how much Andre 3000 and Big Boi must be suffering in all them layers in the desert heat.)

So Rad: 4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

4 Women Fronted Nirvana At Last Night's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony
Watch Lorde Sing "All Apologies"

This is awesome. Last night, Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, just days after the 20 year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death from suicide, and when the remaining members of the band took the stage to perform, they were joined by four female rockers filling Cobain’s shoes/vocals. Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Kim Gordon and Lorde each joined bassist Krist Novoselic, drummer Dave Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear on stage to sing a song from Nirvana’s catalogue, and I have a feeling Kurt, a feminist, would have loved it. The RRHOF ceremony won’t be televised until May 31 (on HBO), but some video has already leaked of a few of the performances, including Lorde singing “All Apologies” (above). Not only that, but after the ceremony, Nirvana played a secret show at a club in Brooklyn — check out video of the band, plus Joan Jett, slaying “Smells Like Teen Spirit” after the jump!

Prepare Your Ears: “Let’s Get Social” Is The “Friday” Of Our Generation

lets-get-social
"My Cat, My Kids, Some Bacon—Let's Get Social!"

Please take this moment to clean out your ears with Q-Tips and emotionally prepare yourselves for what you’re about to see and hear. At this year’s Social Media Marketing World Convention, a woman by the name of Mary McCoy took the stage to sing a little ditty about the power of social media, and it’s basically the new “Friday” (aka that earworm of a song by Rebecca Black). ”Let’s Get Social,” which she also penned, was described by co-writer Phil Mershon as “a humor-laced theme song for this year’s Social Media Marketing World.” And humor it is, Phil. Humor it is. Just when you think Phil’s random yelling of the word “social!” is the bittersweet icing on top of the WTF cake, just wait for his rap solo. LL Cool J would be proud.

Kanye West And Future Rap About Their “Trophy Wives” Kim Kardashian And Ciara

  • In a new song called “I Won,” Kanye West and Future rap about showing off their respective fiancées Kim Kardashian and Ciara, who they repeatedly refer to as “trophies.” The whole thing is equal parts sweet and icky; I mean, “trophy wife” is not exactly a compliment, gentlemen. How about we respect our partners for who they actually are rather than how well they reflect on you? [Flavorwire]

  • Also, Kim and Kanye supposedly didn’t realize that one of them needed to live in France for at least 40 days prior to getting married there. Ooops. [In Touch Weekly]

I was totally in my element watching last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, basking in the hotness that is Luke Bryan and contemplating my love-hate relationship with Taylor Swift, when Stevie Nicks showed up and totally changed the game. She took the stage with Lady Antebellum for a medley of Lady A’s tune “Golden,” and— wait for it— Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon.” In that moment, dreams came true. I didn’t even mind that Hillary Scott was a bit pitchy at times, because it was THAT magical. It was like watching the Power Rangers get together for the first time. Check it out for yourself and thank us later.
