Well, that’s one way to react to the Supreme Court’s ruling today.
In case musical tributes to Supreme Court documents aren’t your jam, here’s a much quieter roundup of the eight best lines from Justice Ginsberg’s dissent. [Mother Jones]

Robin Thicke Tries To Woo Paula Patton Back With Self-Flagellating Video For “Get Her Back”

Robin Thicke sure is sorry he was photographed groping that girl’s butt. And he’s very sorry that he and Miley Cyrus humped each other onstage at the VMAs. But even after he and his wife of 10 years Paula Patton released a statement in February saying “we have mutually decided to separate at this time,” Thicke…

Destiny’s Child Reunites For Michelle Williams’ Gospel Song “Say Yes”

Michelle Williams from Destiny’s Child has a new single out and it’s all about Jesus! Apparently she is super Christian and I had no idea. Anyway, both Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland appear on the gospel song and in the video above, although this isn’t being billed as a Destiny’s Child endeavor. Someone called i…

Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Base” Is The Body Positive Anthem Of The Summer — And It’s FUN!

I love everything about Meghan Trainor’s song “All ABout That Bass”: it’s catchy, it’s body positive, and the retro outfits and set design are so adorable. I just want to jump inside the music video and shake my booty in a pastel A-line from ModCloth. And what’s not to love about a summer anthem about…

Man Films Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” Music Video While Stuck Overnight At The Airport

Oh, the things you can do with a smartphone these days! A man named Richard Dunn found himself stuck overnight at the Las Vegas Airport, so he did what any bored adult man with an expensive toy in his pocket would do: he filmed a music video for Celine Dion’s power ballad “All By Myself.&#8221…

What Will Be The 2014 Song Of Summer?

Real music fans know that not just any song can be crowned Song of the Summer. A Song of the Summer will make you want to day drink. It will get you dancing even when played over the crappy sound system at a street fair. It thinks that crop top was a great idea. So,…

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

Jack Hyer didn’t get the first memo, or the second memo, that public proposals are showoff-y and cringe-inducing for everyone around you. But I’ll forgive Jack, because he’s been traveling a lot these past four years. Twenty-six countries, in fact. In every new place, Jack filmed bits of himself singing the karaoke jam “I’m Gonna…

6 Young Iranians Arrested For “Happy” Music Video Finally Freed

Police in Iran arrested six young adults over the weekend for posting a music video on YouTube in which they dance and lip synch to “Happy.” Tehran’s police chief reportedly called the video “obscene” and said it “offend[ed] public morals.” Particularly problematic was how the women were not wearing headscarves and men and women are show…

50 Songs That Never Fail To Make Us Cry

If I’m in the mood to cry, I know exactly how to make it happen: I have a Spotify playlist called “Saddies” that’s the perfect soundtrack for a good, old fashioned waterworks sesh. Obviously, I have some typical tearjerkers on there like “Unchained Melody” and “I Will Always Love You,” but the majority of…

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…

Michael Fassbender Dances To “Blurred Lines,” Gives Robin Thicke A Run For His Money

So, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy are in a movie together? Some kind of “X-Men” thing? I don’t know, I don’t really care. The important thing is, the hunky trio hit up the “The Graham Norton Show” together and performed the dance moves from “Blurred Lines.”  Robin Thicke had better watch his slimy…

The “Happy” Music Video Without Music Is Bizarrely Captivating

It might sound crazy what I’m about to say … but the video for Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” is a bit creepy without any music. Here are parts of the video with Pharrell and others singing the song without any musical backing, which sounds less like a cappella than you would expect. I’m fairly certain that…

John Mayer’s Acoustic Cover Of “XO” Isn’t Too Shabby

Like many members of the female population, I have some misgivings about John Mayer. I’ve pretty much lost my ability to enjoy his music for what it is without thoughts of his douchey personality tainting my experience. That said, his cover of Beyonce’s “XO” is quite nice. If you like John’s musical style, you’ll love hi…

“Tuition,” A Cover Of Beyoncé’s Song “Partition” About Student Loans, Is Beyond Real

Beyoncé may have already sung about someone “callin’ like a collector” but she’s probably never wondered “if I owe Sallie Mae or I owe the mob.” That’s what Chanel Carroll sings in her completely on point parody cover of “Partition” called (duh) “Tuition” about the loan giant Sallie Mae. Pay all my loans please, I just

If you’ve been anywhere with a radio these past few months, you know Pharrell’s song “Happy” has started something of a movement. He sat down with Oprah Winfrey and watched a clip of how his song has touched people all over the world. He can’t help but cry some happy tears! Oprah tends to have…

Celebs Cover The Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself” As Breast Cancer Awareness Ad

Us ladies can always use another reminder to touch ourselves … while checking for lumps on our breasts, obviously. Olivia Newton-John and other Australian celebs teamed up for a cover of the Divinyls’ classic “I Touch Myself” — written by the late Chrissy Amphlett, who died from breast cancer — for this touching reminder.
