When I saw this image of Sean Penn this morning, I thought, “Oh—this is why Scarlett Johansson is all about him. He loves Robert Smith of The Cure as much as I do.” But alas, that is not the case. This is a still from “This Must Be The Place,” Sean’s newest movie that will be debuting this month at the Cannes Film Festival. The flick tells the story of an aging rock star who heads to America to hunt down the former Nazi who tortured his father during the Holocaust. Still, the Robert Smith resemblance is pretty darn striking. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Ever since I was 13, The Cure has been one of my favorite bands. And while there are way, way better Cure songs than “Friday I’m In Love” (see: the entire contents of Boys Don’t Cry and Pornography), it remains their most famous ditty. So check out this artist’s rendering and sing along. “I don’t care if Monday’s blue/Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday, too/Thursday, I don’t care about you/It’s Friday I’m in love … ” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
- Jonas Brothers A Little Bit Longer
The Jonas Brothers have put out! Sadly, we mean just another record. Despite the suggestive title, the handsome teen trio won’t give it or the music biz up anytime soon and they’re pretty hip for being squares.
- The Cure “The Perfect Boy (Mix 13)”
While Robert Smith has been a bit of a Debbie Downer, singing sad songs since the ’90s, it looks like even he’s coming back with the ’80s. The Cure just released a new single, “The Perfect Boy”, and it’s as sexy as the guy it’s about. No word on whether Smith has wiped off his runny mascara and smeared lipstick look too, but hey, at least he still sounds good!
A few years back, I was stood up on Valentine’s Day. He was a flaky musician, I was a fool. As I sat all alone on my sofa, in my new red dress, I thought to myself, “Gee, Valentine’s Day sucks if you donâ€™t have a way to celebrate it.” Luckily, that night, I had a full bottle of vodka in the freezer. After I mixed myself a few too many drinks — and told him where he could go via voice mail) — I decided that I would start a new ritual of mix making for Valentineâ€™s Day. What began as a drunken search through my music collection for a song that would perfectly sum up how sad/pissed I was about getting ditched on V-day (after three months of dating no less), grew into a holiday tradition of telling my love life via pop songs. This particular mix, entitled â€œYou Canâ€™t Screw The Hole In My Heart Tooâ€ was inspired by a bad break-up in which I didnâ€™t get to keep the dog, but I luckily got to keep my pride… whateverâ€™s left of it. The mix charts the arc of a heartbreaking split, all the emotions: confusion, anger, denial, loneliness, jealousy, desperation, and then the eventual sigh of defeat. So, if youâ€™re feeling it this Valentineâ€™s Day, breakup with me. Misery loves company and a soundtrack. Keep reading »
