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

“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.

The Walmart Bounce Is Sweeping The Aisles


Thank you, Mr. Ghetto, for teaching us the latest dance craze, the Walmart bounce. Whatta whatta whatta whirl! It’s true! Da club is so over, the new hot spot to meet somethin’ is Walmart. It makes perfect sense. Everything a lady needs to stay sassy and classy can be found in the aisles of a Walmart superstore: grocery, boy shorts, lingerie, Massengill, and a cart to hold onto while she backs that thing up. One question: what exactly does it mean to have a “Louisiana purchase?” Please ‘splain. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Musicians From “Once,” The Swell Season, Get Their Own Documentary

The song “Falling Slowly,” from the movie “Once,” is one of the most romantic songs ever. (The Academy, which gave them the Oscar for Best Song, would certainly agree!) A lot of us squealed when we learned the actors Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová had a real-life relationship in addition to their big-screen courtship. Calling themselves The Swell Season, Glen and Marta have toured the world performing the same style of low-key folk music everyone loved from “Once.” Now The Swell Season has gotten their own documentary, also called—shocker—”The Swell Season,” that explores the musicians’ lives behind the movie that made them both famous.

Pomplamoose Covers The Angry Birds Theme Song


Pomplamoose, an indie rock band beloved for their covers of “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and “Beat It,” has now covered the Angry Birds theme song. How zeitgeist-y! I love this — even if it’s just not the same without those sinister piggie snorts. [YouTube] Keep reading »

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 admit I’m biased, seeing as I believe Christina can do no wrong.) “Crazy” was Cee-Lo’s song originally, in case you didn’t know. NBC, put this on iTunes, please?

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?
