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…

I Think Lady Gaga Is The Worst And I’m Not Afraid To Say It

Hi, welcome to Camp Lady Gaga Is Boring And Pretentious, population 1 and it’s me. I recognize that I am all but vastly, utterly alone in thinking that this “Lady Gaga” character is one of the most stale, uninteresting “personalities” to have ever made her mark on pop culture. David Bowie, Grace Jones, Madonna Ciccone…

Celine Dion Covers Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

One of my favorite parts of the Celine Dion concert this weekend (besides ALL THE PARTS) was when Celine deviated from her usual song lineup and sang her own powerhouse version of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” Apparently one of my fellow concertgoers was secretly recording it — click on the video to listen for…

Fiona Apple Is Back And Wearing An Octopus On Her Head

You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t know what to say about this Fiona Apple video for “Every Single Night,” the first song off her new album, The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do. Fiona is wearing a…

Jimmy Fallon & The Roots Cover “Call Me Maybe” With Carly Rae Jepsen

I think we can all agree that the “Call Me Maybe” covers need to stop. Let the last and greatest be Carly  Rae Jepsen herself covering “Call Me Maybe” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots … on classroom instruments. Questlove with a kazoo FTW! [You Tube]…

Girl Talk: I’m A Celine Dion Superfan And I Don’t Care Who Knows

I have a dark secret. Okay, it’s not actually that dark and as far as secrets go, it hasn’t been particularly well hidden, but still, here goes… This weekend, I am going to Las Vegas to see Celine Dion in concert. For the eighth time. I have an entire section of my closet dedicated to…

The Ultimate Guide To Rock ‘N’ Roll

Former Frisky columnist Judy McGuire has exchanged her first love (dispensing hilarious dating advice) for her second (rock ‘n’ roll) with her new book, The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll Lists. But as the title promises, there’s plenty of salaciousness to go around. McGuire got plenty of music’s greatest — and greatest fans — to dish…

Miss USA Contestants Cover “Call Me Maybe”

“Call Me Maybe” is catchiest damn song of the summer, so it figures the Miss USA pageant did its very own cover. It is safe to say none of the contestants will take home the prize for lip synching, but there are a couple funny cameos by the hosts Bravo’s Andy Cohen and E!’s Giuliana…

Fiona Apple Is My Angry Little Spirit Animal

“A lot of my earlier songs are blaming other people and never thinking that I ever did anything wrong, because I was always trying to be completely loyal and honest and pure. It’s so nice to come to a place where you can see how you absolutely enabled all these things to happen. It make…

All The Fabulous Camp From The Eurovision Song Contest

The Eurovision Song Contest is over, and we’re shedding a tear or two in its fabulously campy, irony-free honor. The international European song contest happens each year, and pits singers from each country in the European Television Union against one another for the best pop track. Broadcast around Europe and the former Soviet Bloc countries, Eurovisio…

Make Beautiful Music With Condoms

Condoms are even more useful than we thought. If you’re not getting laid currently, you can always use your spare condoms to make music. The message here is clear: It doesn’t matter how you use condoms, just that you use them. [Buzzfeed]…

Field Guide: Riff Raff The Rapper

If you are reading the Internet right now, which you are, you’ve probably heard a bit of hullabaloo surrounding a rap character named Riff Raff. Up until a couple of days ago, I thought Riff Raff was cartoon cat Heathcliff’s pesky nemesis. And I was right! But also wrong, because the Riff Raff people are…

What Songs Are On Your Workout Playlist?

Ever since I got a glimpse of Michelle Obama’s delightfully funky workout playlist, I’ve been curious to know what’s queued up on the iPods of everybody at the gym. And since most people I know are always in the market for new workout music, I thought it would be good to share our favorite song…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2012 Billboard Music Awards

This past weekend, the stars aligned for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Adele and LMFAO were the big winners, but there were a lot of fashion knockouts on the red carpet. Let’s see what they wore, shall we?

Amy Winehouse Was “Freaked Out” By Adele’s Success, Mark Ronson Reveals

[Amy Winehouse and I] spent a little time together and talked about [working together]. But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why. I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele’s success was making Amy feel upset, competitive,…

10 Celebs And Their Wild And Weird Alter Egos

The last thing I was expecting was an album from actor Jeremy Sisto. Especially one sung by his alter ego, Escape Tailor. Think Counting Crows front man Adam Duritz if he were an albino clown. You can watch the video for Escape Tailor’s first single “Just Cuz” here.  Escape is kind of killing my lady…

Against Me!’s Tom Gabel Comes Out As Transgender

In 2007, Against Me!, a punk rock band from Gainesville, Florida, released a song called “The Ocean.” In his trademark melodic growl, lead singer Tom Gabel sang the following lyrics: “If I could have chosen/I would have been born a woman/My mother once told me she would have named me Laura/I would grow up to…

10 ’90s Anthems That Will Bust You Out Of Any Kind Of Funk

Winona and I recently made a very important discovery: There is no foul mood that can’t be cured by a ’90s dance anthem. It’s like the music of the decade was specifically created with funk-busting in mind. Whenever you’re having a crap day, all you really need to do is find the appropriate ’90s tune…
