It’s crazy to think about, but this coming August will mark 15 years since the incredible album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was released. Since then, the former Fugee has not released another studio album, instead busying herself by having kids (six in total, five with Bob Marley’s son Rohan), practicing her faith with the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, pissing… READ MORE »
I guess when the sex tape thing didn’t pull through, Tanning Mom, my muse, had to come up with another way to stay in the spotlight. What about her biopic starring her? I’m dying for that! Anyhow, Patty Krentcil decided to hit the recording studio and cut her first single, “It’s Tan Mom!” The truth… READ MORE »
It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.
I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.
But judge for… READ MORE »
In my experience, breakup music can go two ways: there’s the soft, sad, slow, wallowing type, and then there’s the upbeat and/or aggressive type that makes you feel like you’ve got the world by the balls, and fuck him, anyway. Personally, I usually begin with the former and progress to the latter over time, once… READ MORE »
It’s been a really long time since I’ve thought about the song “If You Steal My Sunshine,” the movie “Bicentennial Man” (shudder), or the Y2K scare, but this video forced me to confront all those 1999 memories–and many more–in exactly 10 minutes. Before you hit play, be warned that side effects may include involuntarily singing… READ MORE »
Tomorrow is the Backstreet Boys’ 20th(!) anniversary. Yep, BSB has been around for two decades, and I have been a die-hard fan for pretty much that entire time. In fact, at one point my deep love for AJ McLean even informed my religious beliefs (I prayed every night for his hand in marriage). It seems like every week a new… READ MORE »
Granted, I can’t understand what Korean pop star Psy is singing about in his new song “Gentleman,” his follow up to “Gangnam Style.” But his behavior in this video is anything but gentlemanly: he rips off a woman’s bikini top, pulls a chair out from underneath another, and acts like a general asshole towards women… READ MORE »
Last week, Samantha Malson was arrested for pushing and chocking her boyfriend Lars Hansen after a drunk Hansen refused to stop singing the song “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore. Sure, “Thrift Shop” is a great song, but hearing anything over and over again is going to be annoying.
Poor Lars is hardly the only… READ MORE »
Cat Power, she of the haunting vocals and paralyzing stage fright, is back with a new video for the song “Manhattan.” Aside from a newish cropped ‘do, Ms. Power (Chan Marshall) seems like she’s got a new, more positive attitude. And for what it’s worth, those guys dancing in the subway are everywhere and they… READ MORE »
This is Ronan, a three-year old sea lion living at the University of California at Santa Cruz, and she loves to dance. She first bobbed her head to Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Down On The Corner,” and since then has rocked out to songs by the Backstreet Boys and Earth, Wind & Fire. Aside from being… READ MORE »
Here’s Broken Brass Ensemble playing a (mostly) instrumental version of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.” Nothing will cheer you up on a long Friday afternoon stuck at the office like some band geeks rocking out! [HyperVocal] … READ MORE »
Here’s a shocking surprise: The Frisky staff are a bunch of total pervs. And even though I don’t write a ton about sex, I basically have the mentality of a 12-year-old boy, where I think butts, boobs and penises are super funny all the time. This morning, in a haze of cold medicine, I started… READ MORE »
Don’t get me wrong, I love that Taylor Swift song “22.” I just don’t remember what 22 was like anymore. Breakfast at midnight? Who is still awake at midnight? “It seems like every day my newsfeed is crowded / too many newborns / uh uh uh” … yup, that’s my life. [YouTube] … READ MORE »
I’m moving to Nashville in 10 days, so obviously I’ve been listening to a lot of country music. I’ve discussed the many merits of country before, but recently I’ve discovered how many bits of wisdom are written into these twangy songs. Read on for 10 life lessons–some serious, some funny–and the country tunes that inspired them… READ MORE »
