Guy Proposes With “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” Music Video That He Filmed Over 4 Years Of Dating

This High School Kid’s Michael Jackson Dance Is Blowing My Mind

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!? When a Pitma…

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. "Pills N Potion" is an uplifting, but not-even-remotely cheesy love song directed at her haters and will be featured on Nicki's upcoming album The Pink Print. "Swearin' on the Bible that they love…

These Kids Have An Important Message About Drinking And Falling In Love

In light of songs like "Donkey" (shudder) taking over the mainstream country airwaves, I feel the need to even things out a bit by presenting some evidence that good country music is still being made, even if radio stations insist on plugging their ears and yelling "LALALALA" when confronted with any artist that'…

Face The Music: 3 Primping Playlists For Any Occasion

I’m a big believer in the rituals of going out: having some time to yourself to shower, dress, primp, style, and psyche yourself up before barreling into the night (or day) can really set the tone for your excursion. Part of my ritual involves creating meticulous Spotify playlists for specific moods, occasions, or seasons. Sometime…

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

Nat Johnson's new song, "Dog," is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song's central theme: dogs can teach us so…

Build Your Bunkers Now: This Is Going To Be The Biggest Country Hit Of The Summer

There's a disturbing buzz building in Nashville right now. It's reminiscent of the sound of the T-Rex approaching in "Jurassic Park." At first, it's just a faint vibration, then a loud, sickening THUMP, then a deafening roar, and suddenly you're stuck between its jaws, being eaten alive, and there's nothing you can do about it.

Kevin Spacey Harmonizing To “Talk Dirty” Is One Of The Better Things To Hit The Interwebs This Week

Yesterday, I was in need of some laughs to get through the Monday blues, so I watched this clip of Kevin Spacey on "The Tonight Show," doing a barbershop rendition of Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty." Then I watched it again, and again, and pretty much couldn't stop. Something about his dead-eyed expression paired with his commitment…
