“Dedication To My Ex” By Lloyd Is The Women’s Studies Dept Worst Nightmare (NSFW)

Watch Video

What is there to say about “Dedication To My Ex,” the catchy pop song by Lloyd all about his ex’s vagina? I mean, really, what should I say?  I’ve been sitting here typing and deleting and typing again and … I just don’t know what to say. “Dedication To My Ex” is a super-catchy pop song that could have been written and performed by Hanson, if only the lyrics were not all about an unnamed ex and how her “p**sy done changed.” Keep reading »

Evening Quickies: Amy Winehouse & Tony Bennett’s “Body And Soul” Video Is Here

  • Here is Amy Winehouse’s “Body and Soul” video with Tony Bennett, which was one of the last songs she recorded before she died. How very, very sad. [Just Jared]
  • Mila Kunis has allegedly been hit by a hacker who uncovered saucy pics of Justin Timberlake. In one pic, Justin Timberlake is reportedly lying shirtless on a bed and in another he is wearing a pair of pink panties on his head. A third pic shows Mila Kunis’ head poking out of a bathtub and a fourth is somebody’s dick. The hacker also claims to have text messages between the two stars. What a mess. [TMZ]
  • Some a-hole called Kelis a “slave” and a “disgusting Nigerian” at a British airport. Ugh. [Essence]

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 breakdown of 71 bands/musicians/singers and what they say about you… Keep reading »

“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 band Le Tigre called “Who Took The Bomp? Le Tigre On Tour” debuted this spring. And there’s more kickass-ness where that came from, ladies and gents! Check out “From The Back Of The Room,” a new documentary about women in the DIY punk scene which is currently doing screenings up and down the East Coast. The punk scene is super-embracing of people who want an alternative from mainstream culture. Yet the scene is not always the sexism- and racism-free haven you think it is going to be, says one woman in the film. I would love to see a screening of “From The Back Of The Room,” especially since Kathleen Hanna from Bikini Kill and Le Tigre appears in it. [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

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] Keep reading »

  • 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]

  • Mila Kunis says that she will be attending the Marine Corps Ball with Sgt. Scott Moore, the dude who asked her via a YouTube video. [Huffington Post]

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] Keep reading »

Kathleen Hanna On Being A Feminist Ambassador

Le Tigre photo

“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 always bending over backwards being extra nice. And I don’t know if being nice is my legacy. Johanna [Fateman, my Le Tigre bandmate] and I talked about it a lot. Both of us wish that we would have broken out of the mold sometimes and just be jerks more often.”

Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre on giving interviews as a feminist musician. While I’m not sure I’d ever condone being a “jerk” — the world has enough jerks! — I can also relate to feeling responsible for ‘making feminism look good,’ so to speak. The “feminazi” stereotype is so pervasive that lots of people don’t understand what feminism actually is. Thanks a pantsful, Rush Limbaugh. But proving that we don’t hate men — which is completely untrue, obviously — is a waste of our valuable time and energy. [Spinner] Keep reading »

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 with their penises. Bravissimo!

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 you can’t listen to just one Jingle Punks song.
