Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.
This song is awful.

Nicki Minaj has been teasing the world with her video for new single ‘Anaconda’ for weeks now. It was supposed to be out a while ago, but got pushed back for ‘Bang Bang’ and her Beyonce remix. Now it’s here, however, and boy is it something else. Spoiler: There’s a whole lot of ass.
I keep seeing all these articles saying how badly they feel for Drake and that he must’ve had his junk taped to his leg after getting a lap dance from Nicki. His thirst for her always has been and always will be the realest thing about him and I sorta love it… even though he’s apparently back with Rihanna now (and I love that pairing even more).
Warning: Don’t watch this one at work or you might get fired. Unless, of course, you work for a porn company or something. Then by all means, press play.

As much as I really didn’t want to, I totally love the Ariana Grande single ‘Problem’. It’s so good! It’s so catchy! I can even sorta ignore Iggy Azalea‘s presence on the track if I really try hard! Well, now Ariana’s got a new song to get stuck in your head. It’s called ‘Break Free’ and it’s her duet (?) with Zedd, who everyone seems to love, as well.
I don’t know how I feel about this one – definitely not as good as ‘Problem’, but it’s got potential. Here’s the official video for you to enjoy:
By the way, I just have to mention that the stupid fucking hairdo she has going on ALL the time with that extension ponytail drives me NUTS. It ages her about 10 years and it just really needs to go. I know it’s her Amy Winehouse beehive (i.e. trademark), but it’s God-awful.

Iggy Azalea is THE WORST and pretty much everything wrong with the world, but people seem to really love her despite her racist and homophobic bullshit, so there’s that. ‘Fancy’ has become the unofficial song of the summer to some, she’s had massive success as a featured artist on Ariana Grande‘s hit single ‘Problem’, and now she’s about to release a new track with Rita Ora called ‘Black Widow’, which was written by none other than Katy Perry. Considering it has a super ‘Dark Horse’ vibe, I’m not at all surprised.
From Mix FM:
“Katy Perry said to me, ‘Hey I’ve got this song, I’ve been writing and I think you should do it. I just keep picturing you on it,’” Iggy explains to ABC News Radio. “That’s how my collaboration with her kind of began: first we had a friendship and then she wrote something that she had me in mind for. And, being that her album was already out, I said, ‘Will you let me have this for my album?’” Iggy laughs, “And she did me the kindness!”
I’m sure this will be a hit and everything, but Katy, come on girl. Get some standards.

I love Katy Perry‘s brand of kitschy, in-your-face florescent weirdness. It’s something I enjoy greatly, and by that measure, I should really love her new video for ‘This Is How We Do’, but… I don’t. I think it’s all over the place and it looks cheap and I’m just not sure what to make of it. Also, she’s still on her cultural appropriation grind, which is getting into overkill mode at this point. Eh, not the biggest fan of this. Still love her, though.

David Guetta is a DJ who is filthy fucking rich just for knowing how to push a few buttons on a laptop, and people go batshit for this dude. Of course, EDM isn’t what it once was when rave culture was at its peak, but the younger generation is still loving polished club music and basically handing David Guetta money.
Last weekend, Guetta “played” a set at Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, and clearly he’d taken a little too much acid/ecstasy/whatever newfangled drug kids these days do at music festivals and literally trips balls on stage, staring out into the great unknown for long spans of time and going on a trip that is clearly outside this galaxy. It’s almost magical to watch.
Here we go…
Absolutely brilliantly insane. I love it. Also, we’ve gotta watch the obligatory Saturday Night Live digital short, which is one of the best things that’s appeared on that show in the past few years, hands down.
Stuff like this really makes me love life to the fullest, man.
