Lily Allen Calls Fellow Pop Stars “Botoxed Idiots”

  • Lily Allen isn’t one to mince words! In her new UK Esquire profile, Lily talks about growing up during the glory years of Britpop and how she was “a bit disappointed when I arrived and it was a bunch of sterile fucking Botoxed idiots that stank of desperation.” Well, that’s gonna make the Grammys a little awkward.

  • Is there any truth to Hole reunion rumors? [Rolling Stone]
  • Mark your calendars! “The Bachelor” is back on January 5th and Juan Pablo with his shirt off is exactly what this long, cold winter needs. (But why do so many of these women list Dr. Seuss as their favorite author?) [Entertainment Weekly] Keep reading »

Listen To 56 Pop Songs In Just 10 Minutes

The Mashup Of All Mashups

2013 was a pretty memorable year for pop music, especially if you had lots of opinions on blurred lines and riding a wrecking ball naked. In case you need a recap of pop radio in 2013, musician Robin Skouteris made a mashup of this year’s top 56 songs and their videos. It exhaustively clocks in at just under 10 minutes! IMHO, the Katy Perry “Roar”/Taylor Swift “Trouble” part is the best. (Thanks, commenter LR52185!) [YouTube]

This Punk Rock Cover Of Rebecca Black’s “Saturday” Is Better Than The Original

Move Over, Rebecca!

A few weeks ago, I wished aloud for a sequel to Rebecca Black’s “Friday.” Apparently, the universe heard me loud and clear. Rebecca delivered with a sequel called, yes,”Saturday.” (Does this mean everything I ask for on the internet will now come true? In that case, I’d like the next winning lottery numbers please.) Now, a pop punk cover of “Saturday” performed by Patty Walters has surfaced on YouTube  and it’s even more fun than the original. Enjoy! Let’s cross our fingers for “Sunday” to be recorded in another two years.[YouTube]

Did you wake up this morning wondering what it would look like if 1500 cheerful Canadians got together to play a synchronized version of “Cups,” Anna Kendrick’s star-making song from “Pitch Perfect”? I totally did too! I mean, to be fair, I wake up most mornings wondering about this scenario, but today there is finally a video answer to our pressing question. It’s just as adorable as I predicted. Enjoy! [YouTube]

"It's Christmas, You're F**king One Of My Friends"

Not every Christmas will be as magical as the ones when you still believed in Santa Claus. In fact, some of your adult Christmases are really going to suck. Kate Nash has the perfect Christmas song for everyone out there having a crappy holiday season: a new song called “I Hate You This Christmas” off her new EP, Have Faith With Kate Nash This Christmas. “I Hate You This Christmas” is about walking in on her boyfriend cheating with one of her friends and so she doesn’t have any holiday cheer. How true are these lyrics? “Everyone’s excited about going home / But I’m embarrassed to tell my mom / All the Christmas lights and mistletoe / Are only making me more alone.” Yup, been there. Someone get this girl an eggnog. [Twitter.com/KateNash]

A new Britney video is out! “Perfume” debuted today from Britney’s new album, Britney Jean, and it’s got her usual male model eye candy lying around shirtless. Thanks, Brit!  The singing itself is a little grating — Autotune, much? — but the song is pretty catchy … even if it will make you paranoid that your partner is cheating. [Huffington Post]

Another Singing Lohan

As we ponder whether Lindsay Lohan ordered a hit on Barron Hilton, you may be asking yourself, Hmm, what are the other Lohan children up to?  The fruitful womb of Dina Lohan spawned many other children, though none are quite as famous. Last time we saw Aliana Lohan, she was breaking into the modeling biz and maybe-getting plastic surgery. Turns out, she’s got a set of pipes on her, too. Here’s a bashful yet endearingly charming Ali singing a part from Christina Aguilera’s song “Beautiful.” She’s OK, no? [YouTube.com/AlianaLohan]
