No, But Seriously, Kathleen Hanna Is Just What Miley Cyrus Needs

I’m a fan of Miley Cyrus’ most recent hip-hop influenced album. I think it’s fun and silly and clever and while Miley’s attempts at rapping are fairly laughable, her singing voice is still on point.

Out Of The Blue, an insanely talented student a cappella group from Oxford University, busted out a medley of Shakira tunes in a charity performance.

Lana Del Rey Did Not Sleep Her Way To Fame

“It’s commentary, like, ‘I know what you think of me,’ and I’m alluding to that. You know, I have slept with a lot of guys in the industry, but none of them helped me get my record deals. Which is annoying.”
Lana Del Rey told Complex magazine that her song “Fucked My Way Up to the Top”…

Sara Bareilles, Please Serenade Me With Your Cover Of “Chandelier”

Is it blasphemous to say that I dig Sara Bareilles’ cover of Sia’s song “Chandelier” better than the original? (No offense, Sia!) I must admit, I’m totally into this. Sara’s acoustic take is so honest and heartfelt. Obsessed. [PopWrapped]…

Our Last Night does some pretty sweet covers of popular songs like “Skyfall” and “Wrecking Ball,” and their latest creation is this rock version of N*SYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” featuring Cody Carson of the band Set It Off. When you think about the lyrics, “Bye Bye Bye” is a way angrier song than Justin, Lance, JC…

Watch John Legend’s “You And I (Nobody In The World)” Video, Starring Chrissy Teigen And Laverne Cox

I’m generally pretty meh on John Legend’s music because it’s basically 24/7 lovemaking music, which is nice and all, but not really my daily jam. I am, however, really digging the new music video for his song “You And I (Nobody In The World,” which follows in the footsteps of Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” and Beyonce&#8217…

10 Life Lessons Learned From The Spice Girls On The 18-Year Anniversary Of “Wannabe” (In GIFs)

Eighteen years ago today, The Spice Girls put their stamp on the world by releasing “Wannabe.” It’s hard to believe I was just a little pigtailed eight-year-old at the time, but this song has remained one of my favorite jams and girl power anthems over the years, crowned as my karaoke song of choice.
