Steven Tyler Releases Country Song: Thinks Country Is “The New Rock ‘N’ Roll”

Steven Tyler

Steven Tyler is good at lots of things: screaming mid-song, dressing like a hipster Colonel Sanders, and being creepy, but is he good at country music? I’ll leave that for you to decide.

Tyler released a new country single, “Love Is Your Name” in May, and the video for it is out now. Observe:

If you like scarves, this is the music video for you!

Rolling Stone calls it “out-of-the-box.” Naw, I think it’s pretty much right in the middle of the damn box. Why country? As he told the magazine,

Country is changing. I think country is the new rock & roll — everyone is trying to stretch out.

Yeah, I don’t know if I can agree with that. I’m a fan of the country classics, like Dolly Parton, but as for new/current country, it really honestly doesn’t do much of anything for me.

Here’s what Tyler has to say about the video:

This video has so many personal elements in it for me. I came from a family that was a touring band. I grew up as a young boy with my pet raccoon and my slingshot. My real band Loving Mary is featured in the video. This song and video resemble what the album will sound like.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to decline.

What do you guys think? Especially curious to hear from country fans.

Demi Lovato in, “Giiirrrl make better decisions.”

Lindsay Lohan

Side note: my boyfriend saw this photo and said, “That’s Lindsay Lohan?” He’s not a celeb gossip junkie so it had been a while since he’d seen Miss Lohan. But he wasn’t being mean — he was honestly just shocked. Anyway, this is about the outfit and hair, right? It’s fine. The belt seems kinda tacky in a Forever 21 way, like in a “Oh, I’m about to check out, and this belt is by the register and is on sale, f-ck it,” kind of way. But yeah, Lohan, get it together.

Is This Kendall Jenner’s Butt In A Harness?

kendall jenner harness

Kendall Jenner is a model, so that makes her think she’s edgy and avant garde and apparently also made her think it’s a good idea to post a photo of what may or may not be her ass in jeans, wearing a harness. Is it her ass? Does it look like her ass? Do we really know what Kendall Jenner’s ass looks like? Do we really want to know? So many questions, so few answers, and yet this picture has been EVERYWHERE online for the past 24 hours. People are fascinated by it, and I really don’t get why. It’s not like she’s gonna turn around and be wearing a dildo or, I don’t know, whatever people are thinking. (And even if she was, would THAT even be edgy, given that it’s Kendall Jenner we’re talking about, here?)

Whether or not this is Kendall’s butt, she’s not giving us any hints. She simply captioned the photo “Vibes” and left it for all of us to decide. This is an important issue on this fine holiday Friday. So what say you? Kendall’s butt? Random’s butt? Is Kendall into bondage? Is Kendall over before she really began?

Robin Thicke Is “Embarrassed” By His Attempts To Get Paula Patton Back

robin thicke

I suppose it should be comforting to know that Robin Thicke has retained enough human emotion and common sense to be embarrassed by his own behaviour. You see, he’s living it up now with his 20-year-old girlfriend, giving their dogs weed and basically being real winners. But there was a time when he wasn’t so much of a winner, because he was writing creepy songs and performing them at awards shows to get his ex-wife, Paula Patton, to take his cheating ass back just last year. And that was not cool.

From ET Online:

“I came home, and my best friend of 20 years, Craig Crawford, said, ‘I saw your BET performance,’” he recalls. “And I said: ‘Oh yeah! What did you think?’ You know — excited. And he goes: ‘I gotta be honest with you, buddy. You’re kind of playing yourself. You look like a sucker.’ And it hit me that I’d lost my perspective.”

“What I thought was romantic was just embarrassing,” he further explains. “And he said, ‘You should just go away for a while.’ So I shut everything down. I took some time off to be with my son, and to be with my family and close friends. And the more time I took off, the more everything became clear.”

“Look, my songwriting has always been autobiographical, and always will be,” he defends himself. “The Paula album was no different. I was struggling through my toughest time, and I decided to share it. … In hindsight, the only thing I would have done differently was, I wouldn’t have promoted it or sold it. I would have given it away. That would have kept the purity of the message intact.”

LOL, Robin Thicke fucking sucks. He’d better hope the royalties keep pouring in from “Blurred Lines”, because he’s finished, and I couldn’t be happier.

Bobbi Kristina Is Being Sued While In A Coma

bobbi kristina

Bobbi Kristina Brown has been in a coma since late January and it’s a condition she won’t likely come out of, well, ever. She’s currently in hospice care as her family tries to come to terms with her final date, but the vultures have already started to swarm. You see, BK’s being sued over a January car accident in which a man claims he sustained “serious injuries” which entitle him to a payout. Nick Gordon, is that you in disguise?

According to a lawsuit filed by Russell J. Eckerman and obtained by PEOPLE, the accident occurred “on or about” Jan. 27. The papers claim Bobbi Kristina was “traveling at an imprudent speed for conditions and was following too closely and improperly attempted to change lanes in order to avoid the vehicle stopping in front of her.”

Bobbi Kristina then allegedly lost control of the 2005 Jeep Liberty she was driving, crossed the center line and collided with Eckerman’s Ford Taurus.

Eckerman claims he sustained “significant injuries” from the crash, including facial, spinal and skull fractures, a laceration on his scalp and a left wrist sprain that landed him in the hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator.

According to the papers, he underwent several procedures and his medical bills exceeded $732,610.22.

If this is indeed true and the man did sustain these injuries and it was BK’s fault, then I do agree her estate should have to pay the medical bills. But the whole thing just seems a little fishy to me. Perhaps it’s just because it’s such a delicate situation given that BK will never be able to give her own version of events or even have her say in this, but it just strikes me as really awful for everyone involved.

Paris Hilton Was In On That Plane Crash Prank

paris hilton

I guess I’m not all that shocked to hear that the whole “Paris Hilton thought she was going to die on a plane crash but it was all a prank for an Egyptian TV show” thing was a total scam. I did have a very quick flash of, “LOL, yeah right” when watching it, but I utilized some suspension of disbelief and went for it, because the idea of Paris Hilton shitting herself like that on national TV was too delicious to resist. Unfortunately, it was also too good to be true, because she knew about it all along, according to a document obtained by TMZ from the production company behind the show.

Turns out Paris wasn’t their first choice. The company sent the offer to the reps of other American celebs back in March, offering them big money to participate in the prank.

The document states, “We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we’ll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board.”

The doc goes on, “We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane.”

And the document even mentions the stunt has the blessing of Dubai authorities … “Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project.”

Sources say the production company offered a huge amount of money to a willing celeb … in the million dollar range.

Ugh, I never thought I’d say this, but this kind of bullshit makes me miss Punk’d. What’s fun about set-up pranks? Honestly, they didn’t even keep the secret for very long, so what on earth could possibly be the point? BOO!

Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” Video Is Absolutely Insane

rihanna

Technically, I was going to post Rihanna‘s “Bitch Better Have My Money” video yesterday, since it came out at midnight on Wednesday night, but I didn’t even get a chance to watch it until last night, so here we are. Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin and what to say about it at all, but RiRi has certainly outdone herself with this one. I mean, I’m a little bit scared of her at this point, because the whole thing is pretty twisted, but I also love it and feel like, well, at least Rihanna’s a pop star that constantly tries to outdo herself. She certainly did it this time.

“BBHMM” is definitely the best track from R8 we’ve heard so far (though word on the street is that the album has been scrapped due to poor response to most of the first promotional material and Rihanna’s going back to the drawing board with new producers/writers – not sure how true that is, though!) so I’m glad it got a full-length video. I mean, I’m still a little concerned for what goes on in Rihanna’s brain, given that she came up with this concept herself and directed it, but I’m just gonna go along with it.
