Beyonce Crashed The Global Citizen Festival And It Was Perfection

Beyonce made a surprise appearance during Jay Z’s set at the Global Citizen Festival in NYC this weekend, and it was glorious. She joined him to sing Justin Timberlake’s vocals in “Holy Grail,” and then added her voice to “Young Forever” (in a totally on-point outfit, I might add). You’d think that being fresh off the…

Watch 10 Killer Performances From “Nashville” That Have Us Pumped For Season 3

Last night was the Season 3 premiere of “Nashville,” and, as usual, it had me at the edge of my bed, wine in hand and slack-jawed. The story lines just keep getting better and better, and, if possible, the stars’ musical performances are doing the same. From Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton to Lennon and…

Gwen Stefani Sings “Hella Good” On “The Voice” With Awkward Backup From The Other Judges

Gwen Stefani sang “Hella Good” on “The Voice” last night, and while it definitely wasn’t a full-on No Doubt reunion, Gwen totally rocked it. Instead of the rest of the band, Pharrell Williams, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton awkwardly stagebombed the whole thing. They don’t exactly give off the right level of badassery to match…

This Man’s Cover Of “Say Something” Is More Touching Than The Original

Artist Katriona Dean designed and painted a piano, which she calls Foxgang Amadeus, for a Cobourg, Ontario art initiative called the “Keys To Our Town.” The goal of the piano was to inspire citizens and encourage them to make music whenever their hearts desired, and that seems to be the exact effect it had on Michael Anthony

This Marching Band Playing Rage Against The Machine Is Giving Me Life

Oh my god. This video. Is. Life.
So, apparently the George Mason Green Machine is the coolest marching (“moshing” LOLOL) band of all time? They not only do a boss rendition of Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls On Parade,” they’ve got “Beat It,” “Party Rock Anthem,” and “Pump It” in their repertoire as well.

Meet Vulvatron, GWAR’s New Frontwoman

Metal isn’t always the friendliest place for female musicians, but damn if GWAR isn’t switching things up in a serious way. The band was fronted by Dave Brockie for almost 30 years, until his death in March this year. They debuted their new female singer, Vulvatron, at Riot Fest in Chicago this weekend.

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

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.

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

“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 sto…

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…

Nicki Minaj Joined Beyonce Onstage At Her Paris Concert

Nicki Minaj made a surprise appearance at Beyonce’s “On The Run” tour today, and joined Bey onstage to sing her “Flawless” remix. The concert is being taped for an HBO special that will air September 20, which means we’ll get to see the pro footage of the two performing together in a few weeks! [BuzzFeed]…

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…

This Haunting Film Of A Burning Piano Mourns Simpler Times

“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 play…

Here’s Anna Kendrick Singing To Jeremy Jordan In “The Last Five Years”

EW.com released a clip of the upcoming film version of the off-Broadway musical “The Last 5 Years,” starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan [Alas, not this Jeremy Jordan, I was sad to discover. — Amelia], and I’m kind of melting over it. The musical follows the five-year relationship of young NYC couple Jamie and Cathy…

Betty Who’s Video For “Somebody Loves You” Is The Happiest Thing You’ll Watch Today

It’s impossible not to be happy while listening to “Somebody Loves You,” the perfect pop song by Australian singer Betty Who. I first became aware of the song when I saw this video of a guy who proposed to his boyfriend in a choreographed public marriage proposal set to the song (in the lumber aisle of…

Watch This Artist Sing Michael Jackson With A Loop Machine

Artist Kawehi used a loop machine to sing Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” with her own voice serving as background vocals, and my mind is blown. Michael Jackson is the kind of dude that’s covered so often that you have to be pretty damn special to stand out singing his work, but…

The Top 7 Hair Metal Videos In Which The Music Is So Powerful It Defies the Laws of Physics

I don’t know you, but I’ve spent an awful lot of my life wishing that I’d been a teenager around the time that I was born. Bon Jovi was touring for Slippery When Wet in 1987! “Here I Go Again” was topping the charts! “Talk Dirty to Me” was one of the most popular video…

The Christian Country Song “God Made Girls” By RaeLynn Is A Hot Feminist Mess

Hoo boy. Have you heard that song “God Made Girls” by the country singer RaeLynn? She appeared as Racheal Lynn Woodward on season two of “The Voice” on Blake Shelton’s team. It’s a cheesy feel-good song like “Butterfly Kisses” for the millennial generation with just a pinch of Taylor Swift.

To be completely…
