Some Thoughts On The Coachella Line Up Rocking Like It’s 1995

If we’re to believe the news being leaked out of Coachella Festival headquarters, this year’s double weekend Coachella Festival, held in Indio, California on April 13-15 and April 20-22, is going to be like taking a fantastical ride in the wayback machine to the mid-’90s.

Something Totally Magical And Not At All Disgusting Happened On The NYC Subway This Week

Despite what you may have heard, the New York City subway isn’t just crammed with rats, people slurping spaghetti, and urine-soaked homeless people. Occasionally there are magical moments, like the spontaneous musical duet of ukulele player Jessica Latshaw and an unnamed percussionist yesterday morning. YouTube user mybs86 captured the whole thing:…

Are you ready for a sadz? Taylor Swift released a song she’s contributed to “The Hunger Games” soundtrack. “Safe and Sound” is a lovely, melancholy one. I love Taylor on her own, but the backup vocals from The Civil Wars elevate this song from good to great. What say you? [The Hollywood Reporter]…

Rihanna’s “You Da One” Video Is Meh

Rihanna channels everybody from Alex in “A Clockwork Orange” to a cane-toting pimp in her new video, “You Da One,” which is all done in black and white.  The song is epically meh — her vocal inflections remind of stuff Gwen Stefani was doing 10 years ago. But at least the outfits are cool. What…

Morning Quickies: Uh Oh, A Pussycat Dolls Catfight!

One of the original members of the Pussycat Dolls, Kaya Jones, says it’s her voice, not “lead singer” Nicole Scherzinger’s, that you can hear on the smash hits “Buttons” and “Don’t Cha.” Oooooooooh. (But, really, people, it’s all auto-tuned to hell and back anyway.) [RadarOnline

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2011 American Music Awards

It seems like the American Music Awards are kind of like the off-brand Grammys. Sure, some of the big stars are there, but, like, Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t exactly banging down the door to make an appearance. And also, what’s up with Sprint throwing its name up all over everything? Kind of tacky, no? Just…

Girl Talk: Why I’ll Never Play In Another Band With My Husband

When I was 25 years old, I was in a band. It was a dinky little coffeeshop folk-rock band, but MAN it was fun. I had just enough skill to compose but not enough to accompany myself, so I made embarrassing recordings of half-formed songs, brought them to my bandmates, and we workshopped them together.

Britney Spears’ “Criminal”: Product Placement And Domestic Violence All In Video

Britney Spears’ “Criminal” music video is out and if “Mob Wives” hasn’t locked it down as its theme song, they should. The song itself is typical Britney-meh and the video is Britney-awful. There’s not one but two incidents where the cameras linger on her official perfume. (Product placement, y’all!) Brit-Brit and her real-life boo Jaso…
