Just because it’s a thing that exists, I suppose I have to share Pharrell‘s new video for ‘Come and Get It Bae’, which is his new single with none other than Miley Cyrus. It’s a shit song and a shit video, but I guess some people like it. (For the record, I think Pharrell is WAY overrated, and Miley is… well, Miley).
What do you think of the song? The video? The idiotic name of this track? (“Bae”? No.)

Demi Lovato‘s gay anthem, ‘Really Don’t Care’, is an average song with a great message, so I kinda have to support it. Well, it’s also got a remix now with a new video showing Demi performing at what I assume is New York Pride last month, rocking her shaved hair and showing the world just how comfortable with herself she is. There’s also a cameo from Cher Lloyd, which… whatever.

You may know Jenny Lewis from her work with Rilo Kiley, or her solo albums. You may not know Jenny Lewis at all, too – that’s possible. But she’s ready to put out some new solo material and she called on some big names to help her promote her new single, ‘Just One of the Guys’. Enter Kristen Stewart and Anne Hathaway, who dressed up as dudes for the occasion. Enjoy!
Jenny Lewis’ new album, The Voyager, will be out later this month.

First of all, where the hell has Moby been lately? You know, besides sitting alone in his apartment thinking about what a great artist he is and how no one understands music like he does. He seems to come out of hiding long enough to collaborate with Miley Cyrus and getting-weirder-by-the-day Wayne Coyne on a new music video/movie that’s trippy in all the wrong ways and is in no way worth watching. But please, I encourage you to do it anyway:
If this is what art is now, God help us all.

Katy Perry has a background in Christian music herself – her parents wouldn’t so much as let her listen to a secular song until she was well into her teens – so a new lawsuit filed against her is semi-ironic. Apparently her song ‘Dark Horse’ is a little too close to a gospel song called ‘Joyful Noise’ that came out five years ago, and now the people who wrote it want some $$$ for their trouble.
The suit was filed by an artist known as Flame — along with other singers. They say Perry not only hijacked their religious music … she also destroyed their reputation in the Christian music world … because they’re now associated with the anti-Christian witchcraft and imagery that appears in the “Dark Horse” music video.
They’re suing for damages … and want Perry to stop using any form of their music … stat.
I mean… it is INCREDIBLY similar in the beat, but the beat itself isn’t necessarily anything unique, and Katy’s builds and moves away from all of that quickly, so I’m torn. Plus, all music is derivative, so do we really think she was even aware of this song?
What do you think? Should she have to pay up?

I suppose Jennifer Lopez knows what’s trendy far better than I do, but I’m still not quite sure about the bodysuit/jacket combo she wore in Miami on Saturday for her concert at the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party. She performed a full 40-minute set in this brightly coloured metallic get-up, and it’s weird as hell, but somehow she manages to pull it off – presumably because she’s JLo and she can get away with wearing pretty much anything.
Here’s her full set, for those who are interested in seeing ‘Booty’ performed live. Don’t lie, you know you want to.
