Robin Thicke & Paula Patton Announce That They’re Separating

In case you haven’t noticed, Robin Thicke has no interest in being coy about his separation with Paula Patton after 10 years of marriage. His upcoming album “Paula” drops on July 1st with songs like “Get Her Back,” “Forever Love,” and “Too Little Too Late.” Just in case the tour (which we’re assuming is just Thicke pulling a Say Anything) doesn’t send a loud enough message to Ms. Patton, maybe these B-Sides will do the trick: Keep reading »

Robin Thicke Tries To Woo Paula Patton Back With Self-Flagellating Video For “Get Her Back”

Robin Thicke Airs His Dirty Laundry

Robin Thicke sure is sorry he was photographed groping that girl’s butt. And he’s very sorry that he and Miley Cyrus humped each other onstage at the VMAs. But even after he and his wife of 10 years Paula Patton released a statement in February saying “we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Thicke is laying it on, well, thick to get her back. And “Get Her Back” just so happens to be the first video Thicke has released from his upcoming album, called Paula, featuring a track list of songs that mostly appear to be about Patton.

Some might call his desperateion stalker-ish and obsessive. I, personally, think it brings to mind Justin Bieber-level, “Grand Sweeping Gestures Will Prove I’m Not A Douchecanoe,” of relationship maturity. In any case, if the “Paula” text messages in this video are remotely accurate, she doesn’t seem too ready to hop on this crazy train again. [YouTube]

T.I. & Iggy Azalea’s “No Mediocre” Collaboration Is A Bunch Of Sexist Crap

T.I. & Iggy Azalea's "Mediocre" Collaboration Is A Bunch Of Sexist Crap
Not Even Mediocre -- Just Crappy

Hip-hop is probably my favorite genre of music, but goddamn, sometimes the lyrics can go and ruin a perfectly great song. Such is the case with T.I.’s collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “No Mediocre,” which musically is cool and catchy and would be super fun to dance to — if not for the lyrics being painfully sexist from start to finish. The song is all about how T.I. doesn’t want to get with any women he deems “mediocre,” specifically women who don’t do their hair, have “bush” (“I should see nothing but pussy when I look down there”), wear tennis shoes instead of heels, and don’t have pretty faces and a “fat ass.” In other words, the song is about how mediocre and unworthy the vast majority of women in the world are, according to T.I.

Beyoncé Says Yes
  • Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child has a new single out and it’s all about Jesus! Apparently she is super Christian and I had no idea. Anyway, both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland appear on the gospel song and in the video above, although this isn’t being billed as a Destiny’s Child endeavor. Someone called in a favor to Bey, huh?

9 Actors & Actresses Who Are In Bands That Don’t Suck

9 Actors & Actresses Who Are In Bands That Don't Suck

No matter how many times he sadly sits down to eat a cupcake alone on a park bench — and you endlessly insert that same picture into images filled with cats or a reproduction of Lunch Atop A Skyscraper or whatever—Keanu Reeves will forever be known as the man who started Dogstar and, in turn, ruined it for all other actors to start bands without public outcry and critical mockery.

Poor Keanu.

Lucky for us, there’s a new crop of fresh-faced thespians that might actually be able to shake the Dogstar curse and, dare we say, become both successful actors/actresses and musicians. So take a look—and a listen—at the following artists that are sure to be embraced by moviegoers and concertgoers alike. Keep reading »

Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Base” Is The Body Positive Anthem Of The Summer — And It’s FUN!

"Every Inch Of You Is Perfect From The Bottom To The Top"

I love everything about Meghan Trainor’s song “All ABout That Bass”: it’s catchy, it’s body positive, and the retro outfits and set design are so adorable. I just want to jump inside the music video and shake my booty in a pastel A-line from ModCloth. And what’s not to love about a summer anthem about a woman who “ain’t no size 2″ but can “shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do?” Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom of the top!

Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

The Beyoncélogues: Actress Reads Beyoncé Lyrics As Dramatic Monologues

The Beyoncélogues: Actress Reads Beyoncé Lyrics As Dramatic Monologues
"You MUST not KNOW ... about me."

Ever tried (and failed!) to sing Beyoncé at karaoke? I have! And so has actress Nina Millin, whose terrible attempt at warbling Bey inspired her to try performing some of her songs as dramatic monologues instead. So far, she’s tackled “Irreplaceable” (above), “Mine” and “If I Were A Boy” (after the jump), all of which work perfectly as theatrical monologues. I would really love to see Millin and an actor friend do “Drunk In Love” as a dramatic scene next. I wonder if she takes requests… [via Jezebel] Keep reading »

All By Himself

Oh, the things you can do with a smartphone these days! A man named Richard Dunn found himself stuck overnight at the Las Vegas Airport, so he did what any bored adult man with an expensive toy in his pocket would do: he filmed a music video for Celine Dion’s power ballad “All By Myself.” Someone deserves complimentary tickets to Celine’s Vegas show, yes?  [Vimeo]

I’m Loving This Remake Of “Happy” From Fukushima, Japan

Can't Stop Smiling!

I never get tired of “Happy” videos – they’re just too much fun! The city of Fukushima, Japan, is the latest to join the party with their own version of Pharrell’s hit music video, and as the area has seen a lot of tough times these past few years, it’s especially poignant. Tsunamis, earthquakes and radiation have rocked the community, but local Hitomi Kumasaka put together this video to remind the world that Fukushima is determined to keep smiling. [RT]
