1Beyoncé releases ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj

beyonce nicki minaj flawless remix

Beyoncé just unveiled a remix to her popular track ‘Flawless’, complete with a rap verse performed by herself, and one performed by Nicki Minaj. Beyoncé’s verse even pays homage to the infamous elevator incident, boasting, “Of course shit goes down sometimes when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, that line, does it?

All in all, this song did NOT need a remix. But if you want to listen to it anyway, you can head on over to Beyonce’s website or listen below (assuming this isn’t taken down ASAP):

2Katy Perry’s video for ‘This Is How We Do’ is here… and it’s not great

katy perry this is how we do

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.

1317-year-old girl raped in front of huge crowd at Keith Urban concert

keith urban

Well, this is certainly disgusting. A Keith Urban concert in Mansfield, Massachusetts last weekend took a rather dark turn (darker than a Keith Urban concert normally is, of course) last weekend when a 17-year-old girl was raped in front of an entire crowd of drunken country fans who not only didn’t step in to help, but also decided it’d be a great thing to record on their phones. Oh yeah, and this is the same concert where 20 people were hospitalized after getting too drunk.

From CNN:

The attack happened in front of a large crowd of other concertgoers on the lawn of the Xfinity Center, an outdoor amphitheater in Mansfield, Massachusetts, on Saturday night, a police statement said.

The rape ended when a woman in the crowd pushed the alleged attacker off the victim and he fled, police said.

Sean Murphy, 18, was arrested “a short time later” and charged with rape, police said.

“Officers conducting the investigation were assisted by patrons that had been concerned and took photos and video of the assault on their cellular phones,” the Mansfield Police statement said. “Those phones are being processed to recover the digital evidence of the assault.”

Murphy entered a not guilty plea in court and was released on $10,000 bond.

The country star and “American Idol” judge posted a video on YouTube after the show Saturday night commenting on what he saw on the lawn from the stage.

“Up on the lawn tonight, that was nutso. It was so cool,” he said.

Yeah, I’d say “nutso” about covers it, Keith. This is disgusting from all angles, and I hope the asshole who was charged spends some time behind bars for it. There’s not even an “I was drunk!” defense to this. I’ve been drunk plenty of times in my life, and I’ve never ever wanted to commit an act like that. What the hell is the world coming to?

0Vin Diesel singing Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ is everything

vin diesel stay with me

If there’s one thing we know about Vin Diesel, it’s that he loves a bit of karaoke. He’s actually not a bad singer – albeit a hilarious one, since you’d never expect to see him singing half the shit he does. His latest foray into the music world is a cover of Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’ that will seriously kick your Friday off right.

During an interview with UK radio station Capital FM, Vin was handed a laptop and given a backing track, and off he went. What a good sport… and perhaps someone who should avoid falsettos! HA.

0David Guetta trips balls at Belgium’s Tomorrowland festival and it’s hilarious

david guetta

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.

1Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj team up for ‘Bang Bang’

jessie j ariana grande nicki minaj bang bang

This hot ass mess of a song came out yesterday, but I decided I should probably write it up today since it managed to reach #1 in 11 countries in 24 hours. Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj teamed up for a screamfest pop track with added rap element in ‘Bang Bang’, a song that’s so all over the place I don’t know what the hell I’m listening to half the time. Is it catchy? Eh, kinda. Is it full of bars being oversung in ways that would rival Christina Aguilera? You betcha. Here ya go anyway…
