I’m Loving This Remake Of “Happy” From Fukushima, Japan

I never get tired of "Happy" videos -- they're just too much fun! The city of Fukushima, Japan, is the latest to join the party with their own version of Pharrell's hit music video, and as the area has seen a lot of tough times these past few years, it's especially poignant. Tsunamis, earthquakes and radiatio…

Watch Lena Dunham Do An Interpretive Dance To Sia’s “Chandelier”

Sinead O’Connor’s New Album Is Called I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss, Inspired By Sheryl Sandberg’s ‘Ban Bossy’ Campaign

I will be #TeamSineadOConnor forever. Sinead's a bad-ass feminist thriving in the music industry from way, way back. So much so, in fact, that she's named her upcoming album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss — and that's the very sexy cover image above. You may remember the phrase "I'm not bossy, I'm the boss" coming out of

When high school junior Brett Nichols performed this Michael Jackson-inspired "Billie Jean" dance routine at Pitman High School's Talent Rally (the action starts around 1:12 on the video), he probably didn't expect to become an overnight internet star -- but then, how could he not expect to get attention with moves like that!?

Listen Up: Nicki Minaj’s New Ballad, “Pills N Potion,” Will Give You Life

I've always been a little meh on Nicki Minaj, but today the rapper dropped a ballad that is knocking my socks off.
