My boyfriend Nick is an old man trapped in a 26-year-old’s body. He’s usually in his pajama pants by 7:30 p.m., it’s not uncommon for him to use the phrase “Why is everyone in such a hurry?” while driving, and his knowledge of pop culture is mostly limited to the “House Party” trilogy. This is why I was shocked when “Call Me Maybe,” the ridiculously catchy song by Carly Rae Jepsen, came on the radio the other day and Nick started listing off some interesting facts about the song and its singer. Too bad none of them were even close to being true. I have no idea where he gets his information, but in any case, here are five things my boyfriend genuinely believes to be true about Carly Rae Jepsen… Keep reading »

  • Shia LaBeouf and Shia LaBeouf’s penis are the stars of Sigur Ros’ music video for “Fjogur Piano,” or, as they put it, a mystery film experiment. I call it eight-and-a-half-minutes of WTF Is Going On. [Huffington Post]
  • Vile person Glenn Beck is planning what he calls an anti-”Glee” show, whatever that may mean. I guess a fun program for kids promoting hate and intolerance? [PopCrush]

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 thought it was time to document it. Check out our Dad Music Field Guide, after the jump! Keep reading »

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 man knows his Carly Rae Jepsen from his Demi Lovato. Who knew? [Popdust]

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 for Christ’s sake — they did it first, and better. It’s not her image I take issue with, it’s the severe, and I think unmistakable, dichotomy between her mask and her music. She’s so avant-garde! She has a lobster on her head! She’s in a meat dress! She’s in an egg! It’s like the womb! Edgy! Individual! Born this way! Lazy, insufferable ra-ra-ra bubblegum pop cribbed from “Express Yourself,” tossed into the mass media music machine! She’s making a perfume called “Fame” that will be a black liquid with “the feeling and sense” of blood and semen and a bottle heavily “inspired by” Thierry Mugler’s Alien. She snagged the upcoming cover of this year’s Vogue September issue. Tell me why, you guys! When is this person going to do something that’s real and unique? I’m not going to hold my breath, but can we please move past Stefani Germanotta? Bring me the next Britney! Whatever happened to the punk rock pop stars?

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 an octopus on her head, writhing in the dirt with snails, and floating through assorted ethereal and weird scenarios. God only knows what it’s supposed to mean. Maybe nothing? Anyway, The Idler Wheel comes out June 19, but the entire album is up on NPR today for your listening pleasure. Snail-free, I should say.  [BuzzFeed]

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 sparkly Celine concert dresses. My favorite nightgown is an ankle-length T-shirt with Celine’s face on it. “Queen Celine” is by far my most played Spotify playlist, albeit usually on the private setting. Yep, I’m a Celine Dion superfan, and I think it’s finally time to share my truth with the world. Keep reading »
