Janelle Monae Performs Via Hologram With M.I.A. & It’s Actually Awesome

janelle-monae-mia
Bang, Bang, Bang

Bringing dead celebrities “back to life” via hologram is hella morbid. But the very-much-alive Janelle Monae performing via hologram with M.I.A. on “Bad Girls”? That’s really fucking cool. (Maybe if Justin Bieber only performed via hologram, he would show up to his concerts on time.) [YouTube via AV Club]

O-Town Reuniting Without Ashley Parker Angel

O-Town was the by far the best boy band ever created on a reality show called “Making The Band” in the year 2000. We all enjoyed their vocal (and hair) stylings until 2003, when the band broke up, leaving the world a dark, sad, lonely place where fans could only ask, “Why? Whyyyyy?” while listening to “Liquid Dreams” on repeat and crying. (Not that I did that.) (I totally did.) Today, our long national nightmare comes to an end: O-Town has announced they are reuniting and working on a new album. Hooray! Rejoice! But wait, there’s a catch. The new O-Town will be a smaller and significantly less blonde group, because Ashley Parker Angel has opted not to renew his O-Town membership card. This news brings up many important questions, most pressingly: What is O-Town without Ashley Parker Angel? What is life without Ashley Parker Angel? Doesn’t this go against the message of their biggest hit, “All Or Nothing”? I need to go lie down. Check out the band’s reunion announcement video after the jump, if you feel emotionally ready for it. Keep reading »

"It's The Ciiiiiiiircle of Liiiiife..."

Someone please tell me why I was not on this plane. Travelers flying from Brisbane to Sydney, Australia, this weekend got a musical surprise when the Aussie Broadway cast of “The Lion King,” who were also en route, decided to serenade the plane with their rendition of the musical’s hit number, “The Circle of Life.” Keep reading »

Leighton Meester Dares To Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” And It’s Actually Really Good

Leighton does Stevie proud

I am always weary when anyone covers a Stevie Nicks song — especially when it’s a celebrity who is not known for being a singer. Naturally, I was ready to hate Leighton Meester and Dana Williams’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” but remarkably, I didn’t. Williams, whose EP The Lonely One is now available on iTunes, sounds amazing and Meester’s not so bad either. She gets extra respect from me for her guitar-playing abilities. I rate this highly listenable, as far as Fleetwood Mac covers go. [Refinery 29]

Tori Amos’ New Song “Trouble’s Lament” Is Pure Tori

*** Fans Self ***

If you were a certain type of teenaged girl, your inner emotional landscape was set to a channel of all Tori Amos, all the time. As someone who still has deep emotional connection to Little Earthquakes, I’m already losing my shit over the first song from her new album. “Trouble’s Lament” is CLASSIC TORI and gives me hopes for her upcoming album, Unrepentent Geraldines, out on May 13. Give a listen: I think you’ll love it as much as I do. [YouTube]

“This Is A Trent Reznor Song” Is An On Point Parody Of Nine Inch Nails

Trent Reznor Song Parody
Are We Sure This Is A Parody?

You guys, I love Trent Reznor and am a huuuuuge Nine Inch Nails fan. Like, I have stopped being friends with people because they said something mean about Trent once at a party when they were drunk and “Capital G” started playing on the host’s iPod shuffle. And despite my fierce loyalty for Trent (or perhaps because of it?), I cannot stop laughing at this amazing NIN parody song/video from comedian Freddy Scott. Everything about it — from the music to the lyrics to the strange, dark video — is absolutely perfect. [Rolling Stone]
