What Your Taste In Music Says About You (On A Date)

It’s one of the quintessential (and sometimes dreaded) first date questions: What kind of music are you into?

There’s a reason that most people tend to side-step this question with a deft, “A little bit of everything.” It’s because your taste in music reveals a lot about you to potential partners. Here’s the breakdow…

“From The Back Of The Room”: New Documentary On Women In Punk Music

It’s been a kickass couple of years for women in music alternative scenes. Last year two books that dealt heavily with the Riot Grrl movement were published — Girls To The Front by Sara Marcus and Girl Power: The ’90s Revolution In Music by Marisa Meltzer — and a tour documentary about the…

Listen: Italian Oral Sex Song, “I’m Horny” (NSFW)

My new favorite pop star? Italy’s Gionny Scandal. What an artiste! His new song, “I’m Horny,” features a bevy of barely legal blondes sucking lollipops and being sprayed in the face with whipped cream while they sing a chorus about giving him a blowjob. Everyone’s mamma must be so proud! [Europopped]…

The Black-Eyed Peas are on an “indefinite break,” finally confirming months of rumors that something was up. [ONTD]
Zooey Deschanel laid the smackdown on a journalist who took a partial quote about Los Angeles out of context, misquoted her, and called her a “snobby cow.” Don’t mess with Zooey, fools. [, ZooeyDeschanel.Tumblr.com]

Amy Winehouse Bombs Belgrade

Watch Amy Winehouse’s comeback performance in front of 20,000 people in Belgrade. Watch Amy Winehouse, slur, stumble, scratch herself and try to remove her wig. Watch Amy Winehouse cancel her tour. Any questions (besides what’s she on)? So tragic. [The Fix]…

Kathleen Hanna On Being A Feminist Ambassador

“I feel like there’s this weird thing that as a feminist band you get put in this role as ambassadors. Certain people are like ‘Oh, here come the Feminazis!’ You end up acting 10 times nicer than you even need to be, to be the opposite of the stereotype like ‘You’re the man haters!’ We’re…

Watch Two Dudes Play The Piano With Their Penises

There is no reason for you to watch this video other than to make you laugh and possibly make you stupider. But if you’re OK with that bargain, then by all means check out this video from the Greek version of “Britain’s Got Talent” of two men who can play a grand piano

Jingle Punks: Classical Music Versions Of All Your Hipster Favorites

I’m in love with Jingle Punks, a self-described “hipster orchestra” that covers pop/rock tunes like MGMT’s “Time To Pretend” orchestrally. (Oh, wow, “orchestrally” is actually a word, y’all.) Jingle Punks’ music is perfect for girls like me who enjoy both classical and pop music. And who doesn’t love a good cover? I bet…

The Walmart Bounce Is Sweeping The Aisles

Thank you, Mr. Ghetto, for teaching us the latest dance craze, the Walmart bounce. Whatta whatta whatta whirl! It’s true! Da club is so over, the new hot spot to meet somethin’ is Walmart. It makes perfect sense. Everything a lady needs to stay sassy and classy can be found in the aisles of…

Musicians From “Once,” The Swell Season, Get Their Own Documentary

The song “Falling Slowly,” from the movie “Once,” is one of the most romantic songs ever. (The Academy, which gave them the Oscar for Best Song, would certainly agree!) A lot of us squealed when we learned the actors Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová had a real-life relationship in addition to their big-scree…

Pomplamoose Covers The Angry Birds Theme Song

Pomplamoose, an indie rock band beloved for their covers of “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and “Beat It,” has now covered the Angry Birds theme song. How zeitgeist-y! I love this — even if it’s just not the same without those sinister piggie snorts. [YouTube]…

This Cee-Lo/Xtina/Adam Levine/Blake Shelton Cover Of “Crazy” Isn’t Half Bad

Pop song covers that become group projects have so much potential for failure and douche-itude. (See: Bret Michaels and Miley Cyrus duet, “Every Rose Has Is Thorn.”) But this “Crazy” cover by Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on NBC’s new show, “The Voice,” is pretty damn hot. (But I’ll…

Beyoncé’s New Single “Girls (Who Run The World)” Leaks Online

Beyoncé‘s back! Her new song, “Girls (Who Run The World),” leaked online yesterday. Catchy like “Single Ladies” it ain’t, but it’s girl power-iffic in a way that reminds me of her Destiny’s Child-era stuff. I think it’s meh, but I guess they all can’t be “Crazy In Love,” can they? [PopEater]…

Will You Be Watching Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball” Concert On HBO?

Some of us haven’t been lucky enough to see Lady Gaga in concert (ahem, Amelia). But fret not! Those of us who fork over the moolah each month for HBO can watch a concert video of Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball” show on Saturday, May 7. Sigh. Minus the sweat of 10,000 screaming fa…

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Cover Is Hideous

Lady Gaga released her “Born This Way” album cover images this weekend and fans are more stunned than when she showed up to the Grammy’s inside a giant egg. Half-motorcycle, half-woman, a red lipstick-ed Gaga snarls out from beneath a mane of blonde hair. I think it’s hideous and slightly scary. Does anyone love it?

Adele’s Music Is Her Strong Suit, Not Her “Boobs Or Bum”

“My life is full of drama and I won’t have time to worry about something as petty as what I look like. I don’t like going to the gym. I like eating fine foods and drinking nice wine. Even if I had a really good figure, I don’t think I’d get my tits and a…

Quickies: Hear The Britney/Rihanna “S&M” Remix & Benicio Del Toro Knocked Up Who?!

How in love am I with this Rihanna/Britney Spears “S&M” remix? This morning RiRi told Z100 she hopes the two make a music video together because “I want to spank Britney!” Meow. [PopEater, RadarOnline]
Nicki Minaj will replace Enrique Inglesias and his ego as the opening act for Britney’s tour. What an upgrade! Suck…

The Backstreet Boys/NKOTB Single “Don’t Turn Out The Lights” Is Here

The Backstreet Boys/New Kids On The Block single is here! “Don’t Turn Out The Lights” is indistinguishably Top 40 and made for an eight-second clip on the next season of “Jersey Shore” as background music for Sammi and Ronnie being “on” again. Maybe two boy bands really are better than one. Pretty catchy, huh?

Yesterday was Lady Gaga’s 25th birthday, and she Tweeted in the morning, “I woke up to chicken and waffles in bed, pink tulips, + little monster bday videos. I love you! I was #bornthisday.” Later in the night, her friends threw her a surprise party at a Mexican restaurant. Apparently, Gaga spent…
