I Wanna Eat The Whole Cake

Hannah Montana is deader than dead: Miley Cyrus’s newest musical offerings include “Bitches Love Cake,” this totally weird (on purpose) dubstep song with Borgore. It’s got a baby goat, panda and unicorn costumes, and a big ol’ cake . Oh, and Miley Cyrus’s freakishly long tongue. As commenter LR52185 told me when he sent this in, “Miley must have some Gene Simmons in her … her tongue is huuuuuuuuuuge.” All the better to lick Liam Hemsworth with, I suppose.

“This one song that I’ve got, I don’t even know what the title would be, it sounds like something John Lennon would be doing in his very psychedelic stage. It starts with these congo or bongo drums carrying this strange rhythmic pattern. And then a tambourine doing off-time hits with it… It’s pretty bizarre. But it’s pretty catchy. Who knows, maybe we’ll stick it on the next Nickelback album.”

–Chad Kroeger reveals to Men’s Health that Nickelback is sitting on a crazy, psychadelic, paradigm-shifting, super experimental–but still catchy!–song in that maybe, just maybe, will make an appearance on the band’s next album. As an avid Nickelback fan, I will be waiting with bated breath. Another major revelation from Chad’s interview? He and fiance Avril Lavigne call each other “Chavril” at home(!), and Avril has taken total control of their wedding plans: “Let’s just say she’s … steering the ship towards what is going to be the most unique wedding that the planet has probably ever seen.” Be still, my Chavril-loving heart!

It’s The Rap Coloring Book!

Whether you’ve got 99 problems or you’re a motherfuckin’ monster, chances are you probably like coloring books. (Everyone likes coloring books.) And this quirky rap coloring book will keep you busy coloring in Jay-Z and connecting the dots on Tupac. Too bad Nicki Minaj is excluded, because you totally could have used all the crayons in your box coloring on her crazy hair. [ANIMAL New York]

Courtney Love

Courtney Love is working on a movie or Broadway musical about her relationship with Kurt Cobain set to Nirvana music, according to none other than Britney Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti. Lufti is currently suing Spears and her parents for defamation and explained in court yesterday how he’s been keeping busy.  ”[Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on [Love's] life and Kurt Cobain’s,” he explained. Outside the courtroom Lufti clarified the musical/movie is just “an idea,” which I suppose it has to be for now because Love is on bad terms with both her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Cobain’s ex-bandmates. But hey, if creating a musical that might never get made is keeping Courtney Love busy and off Twitter, I say go on with your bad self.  [Guardian UK] [Photo: Bauer Griffin]

I grew up in a small, rural town where muddy trucks would cruise up and down main street with rifles mounted in the back window and country music blasting from the speakers. I grew up hating country music. I thought it was stupid, cheesy, and ignorant. To me, country music was the soundtrack to a conservative, small-town mentality that felt incredibly stifling. I tuned it out in favor of pop, rap, oldies, indie rock, and metal (for years my musical taste could be easily summed up as “Everything except country!”) until one day in 2003, when the Dixie Chicks caused a firestorm by speaking out against President Bush on stage. This was progressive, ballsy, the complete antithesis to everything I thought I knew about country music. I realized if these kinds of women were singing country songs, maybe it was time for me to reconsider my hatred for the genre. I slowly–and secretly–starting getting into country. Pretty soon I was asking friends for country recommendations and discovering that I have a serious banjo fetish.

This year I drove two-hundred miles roundtrip to attend a country music festival and even took a trip to Nashville to get my live banjo fix. My high school self would be stunned. Here are seven things I’ve learned to love about country music since my conversion to a proud country fan… Keep reading »

Listen!

The words “Taylor Swift” and “dubstep” in the same sentence together suggests you will soon be stabbing your own ears with a pair of blunt scissors. But you know what? “I Knew You Were Trouble” is actually good. It’s not dubstep-dubstep in a Skillrex-y kinda way. But it’s not Taylor Swift butchering the genre either. And I’m a Taylor Swift fan to the end (shut up) but even I’ll admit she’s got to mix up her repetoire. “I Knew You Were Trouble” is so good that I can imagine Ellie Goulding covering it — and that is my highest compliment. [Idolator]

  • A new Amy Winehouse song! Well, sort of. Nas has released his rap “Cherry Wine” featuring vocals from Amy and it’ll tug at your heartstrings that this amazing voice is gone. [Vulture]
  • Speaking of voices, “Grease” co-stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are reuniting for a Christmas album that already sounds like it is going to be schmaltzy. Amelia, who loves Christmas music, is super psyched. [Celebrity Cafe]

"Everything Is Embarrassing"

Stick with me here: So, electro-singer/blonde moppet Sky Ferreira released a new video for her song “Everything Is Embarrassing,” where she pouts around a playground and looks really bored and annoyed with everything. The song is minimal and vaguely catchy in the way that the sample songs on a Casio keyboard are — inoffensive and forgettable. But taken all together: Sky’s little girl lost aesthetic and her childish lyrics reminds me of…
