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?!

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?

Rachel Maddow Gets Her Very Own Country Song


I love Rachel Maddow as much as the next bi-curious liberal with a cable subscription. But still, I can’t compete with this guy. Country musician Marc Black penned “I Love You Rachel Maddow,” an ode to his favorite MSNBC host, her hair, and the way she stands up to Pat Buchanan. Hopefully…

Death Metal Version Of Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Somehow More Appealing Than Original

I worked really hard all last week to stop Rebecca Black’s “Friday” from creeping onto my radar; like, I could see it hovering peripherally, and I heard snippets of the song, but I refused to give it my full attention. Then I saw that there was a metal version of the tune and I…

Ladies, This is My Future Boyfriend

I don’t know who this phantom saxophone player is, but I do know that we already have one very important thing in common — our undying love of adult contemporary sax solos. Mystery George Michael saxophone player, call me. [YouTube]…

Little Girls Debut Music Video Criticizing Lil Wayne’s Sexist Lyrics

Kick ass! A nine-year-old and a 10-year-old who call themselves Watoto From The Nile wrote and performed a hip-hop song about rapper Lil Wayne’s derogatory and sexist lyrics. How much do you love these little girls? Amelia, when you retire in 2031 and replace yourself with the five-year-old girl who won’t marry until…

Hanson’s All Growns Up

Teeny-bopper, mmm-boppers, Hanson are back with a new song. The video for “Give a Little” from their latest album Shout it Out is still jump-up-and-down while you chew your bubble gum fun, but with a slightly more adult feel. Like maybe you’re chewing Orbitz instead of Bubble Yum. I still can’t believe they…

“Siamese Dream” Girl Found!

If you were a music fan in the ’90s then you listened to Siamese Dream by the Smashing Pumpkins until your cassette tape unraveled or your CD was too scratched to play again. Usually while lamenting an unrequited crush (or maybe that was just me). Ever wonder what happened to those little girls on the…

What’s Your Wedding Song — Real Or Imagined?

Sitting in Starbucks awhile ago, Jack Johnson’s cute little ditty “Banana Pancakes” came over the sound system. “Pretend like it’s the weekend now,” I sang to myself, thinking, This song is significant. Why is this song significant? Then I remembered: my friend Tania picked “Banana Pancakes” as her first dance song when she married her…

Ani Di Franco And Margaret Cho Bring You … Captain Cameltoe!

This Ani Di Franco/Margaret Cho animated music video for “Captain Cameltoe,” off Cho’s new album Cho Dependent, is something you’ll appreciate fully the more stoned you get. (JK! Don’t do drugs, kids!) But I can’t say my 16-year-old self isn’t thrilled two of her real-life superheroes finally teamed up as Captain Cameltoe and Righteou…

Ricky Gervais Impersonates David Bowie

Well lookey what we have here. A young Ricky Gervais who clearly fancies himself a David Bowie disciple. Ricky was the front man of British new wave band, Seona Dancing. Even though this song hit number 70 on the UK charts, I’m glad he decided to explore his comedic side instead of staying…

What Is “Slutwave” And What Does It Have To Do With Katy Perry’s Boobs?

When I was a young teen, Britney Spears trotted onto the scene in her braids, schoolgirl skirt and red lipstick, posing for Rolling Stone while sucking lollipops and hugging stuffed animals. At the time, her look was described as “kinderwhore.” Over a decade later, Britney’s most barely-legal moments look tame in comparison to the po…

The Gold Dust Woman Is Back

Uh, my celebrity soul mate, Stevie Nicks, is back. Her new album, In Your Dreams, is out in May. This single off the album, “Secret Love,” is a song she’s been working on since the ’70s. No wonder it sounds so Stevie-vintage-wonderful. I really want her to start wearing capes and feathers again.
