Let’s Hope “The Song I Wish Taylor Swift Would Write” Is The Last Of The Backlash

Taylor Swift backlash: it was inevitable. We here at The Frisky are firmly in the for-cripes-sakes-they’re-just-love-songs-chill-out-everybody camp and we always will be. But as we’ve already seen, more than a few bloggers are angrily typing away, cataloging how Taylor Swift is (and I quote) “a feminist’s worst nightmare.” I’m sorry, but do you people…

Behold The Music Flesh Map

Fleshmap is a series of studies done by artists dedicated to an inquiry into human desire and its expression through touch, feel, and sound. Yep—it’s a little bit of crazy art science for ya. My favorite study on the site is about music genres and body parts. It maps out the body parts invoked most…

What Do Your Musical Tastes Say About You?

Blogger Lauren Leto, whoever you are, I love you. Your snarky list describing different authors and the people who read them made Amelia’s and my morning. Who reads Jodi Picoult? “Your mom when she’s at her time of the month.” Emily Griffin? “Women who give their boyfriend marriage ultimatums.” Sylvia Plath? “Girls who keep journals.”…

Berkeley Men’s A Capella Group Sings Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”!

Sorry I didn’t post this clip earlier of Noteworthy, the UC Berkeley men’s a capella group, singing Lady Gaga! I was too busy sending it to everybody and watching it twice.

Even if you don’t know all the words to “Poker Face,” it’s worth watching for the booty-shaking dance moves alone. Please put…

Female Bloggers Ask, Is Taylor Swift Bad For Women?

Let me start off by saying a few things: I’m a feminist; I love Taylor Swift; and I also respect the minds of bloggers Kate Harding of Broadsheet and Amanda Hess of The Sexist.

But I really disagree with both of them, as well as with Sady Doyle on Bitch magazine’s She Pop blog,…

Which Songs On John Mayer’s New Album Are About Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston?

John Mayer doesn’t just open up to the paparazzi about private stuff with Jennifer Aniston—he composes ditties about her, too. Case in point: it doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to figure out that “Heartbreak Warefare,” the first song on Mayer’s new album, Battle Studies is about Aniston being hung up over Brad Pitt:

“Drop hi…

17 Hot Songs Straight From London Fashion Week

RIP: Mary Travers Of Peter, Paul And Mary

Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary passed away from leukemia yesterday at the age of 72 and I teared up several times last night and this morning just thinking about her.

When I was 14 years old, my Girl Scout leader, who also happened to be the editor of our dinky local newspaper,…

Crave: A.P.C. Karaoke DVD

Karaoke isn’t normally a classy affair. Dive bars, sloppy slurred words, vodka shots, and embarrassing photos are more like it. Leave it to A.P.C., one of our favorite French clothing labels, to make karaoke cute. Their new DVD offers instrumental versions of the standards: “Like a Virgin,” “Billie Jean,” and other hits by the like…

Interview With Deana Martin Part One – The Lady Soars With Her Music

Deana Martin, daughter of the legendary Dean, is unspoiled Hollywood royalty, the type of woman who makes sure you’re seated comfortably and well taken care of before she sits down to be interviewed by you. She’s genteel, friendly and refreshingly open about her famous Dad and her own interesting life. Now that is class and…

Rachel Zoe DIES for Bob Dylan

You can tell a lot about a person by the kind of music they like. We know Rachel Zoe’s clothing preferences (expensive vintage dresses, Hermes Birkin bags, face-covering sunglasses) from her reality TV show.

Calvin Harris Plays “Humanthesizer” Made Out Of Girls In Bikinis

Calvin Harris is one lucky guy. Or one incredibly weird one. In this video, the Scottish electro-pop musician creates what he calls a “Humanthesizer” to play his new single, “Ready For The Weekend” (his upcoming album drops on the 17th). Using a body paint that conducts electricity, he coated the hands and feet of…

Aubrey O’Day Tries To Sound Like Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy was never really respected as a singer, but don’t tell that to former Danity Kane member Aubrey O’Day. She has remade Eddie’s “Party All the Time,” off his 1985 LP How Could It Be. Eddie’s “Party All the Time” sounds like typical ’80s synth-heavy pop music, but Aubrey was able to…

Le Tigre + Christina Aguilera = OK, Whatever

Pitchfork says the kick-ass electro-punk group, Le Tigre, is working on music with Christina Aguilera of all people. Presumably they’re doing music for X-tina’s new album, since JD Samson recently told NickyDigital.com that Le Tigre won’t be touring again “anytime in the near future.” (Kathleen Hanna has been teaching at NYU, Johanna Fateman recently had

“Poker Face” Gets The Orchestral Treatment

We’ve always thought Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” was a masterpiece, and it’s even more of one when performed by an orchestra. After the jump, two more pop songs made elegant with the help of violins, French horns, and bamboo.
