Jay Z And Beyoncé Are Collaborating On A New Album, And Now My Heart Is Full

Beyonce and Jay Z

Divorce? C’MAN. We don’t believe you, you need more people!

Everyone was making out like Bey-Z was getting divorced once the On the Run Tour was over, and instead they’re like, “PSYCH! We’re making an album together.” It’ll be released late this year or early next year. Keep reading »

Watch Kristen Wiig & Ellen Bring You The One And Only “Frozen” Cover Worth Seeing

So Worth It

“Frozen” overload seems to have peaked sometime over the summer, and by now about a thousand mediocre covers of “Let It Go” have shoved their way into our lives, but this one is too awesome to ignore. Both Kristen Wiig and Ellen claim not to know the words to the song, but that doesn’t stop them from giving it a shot. As you can imagine, hilarity ensues. [Huffington Post]

Miley Cyrus Slays Cover Of Led Zeppelin’s “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You”

There’s plenty of shade to cast at Miley Cyrus — her recent attempt at defining herself as a candy raver vibrator artist is next level awful, for example — but when the girl actually sticks to what she’s good at and sings, I cannot help but love her. This weekend, Miley dropped a cover of the Led Zeppelin heartbreaker “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” on SoundCloud, and GODDAMMIT it’s good. Tune in above. [SPIN]

Here’s Leighton Meester’s New Single

Leighton Meester (or as she’s forever known in my TV-loving heart, Blair Waldorf) is set to release a nine-track album on October 28. She debuted her new song “Heartstrings” yesterday and I’m totally intrigued. Instead of the bubbly, formulaic ditties that lots of actresses-turned-singers fall victim to, Meester’s song has a thoughtful, melancholy vibe to it that I can totally get behind. She’s ventured into music before with Cobra Starships’ “Good Girls Go Bad,” the movie “Country Strong,” and a kick-ass Fleetwood Mac cover, but this is her first album. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the tracks! [Cosmopolitan]

This Haunting Film Of A Burning Piano Mourns Simpler Times

Piano
Ouch

“Deconstructed Piano,” an eery film by Austrian filmmaker Laurin Dopfner, is meant to represent “the gradual destruction of instrumental music through digital sound generators.” A piano is burned to the ground as its music is disrupted by two heat guns, or as Dopfner fittingly explains it, “an assault by two robots.” The Moonlight Sonata plays to represent the grief and pain felt by the piano. The process required eight hours of time lapse photography, with one frame every six seconds. I can’t imagine what it takes to convince someone to torch a gorgeous, capable piano, but the heartbreaking end result is pretty moving. [Laughing Squid]
