Nine Notable Acts from Coachella Weekend One

I’ve covered Pitchfork, Bonnaroo, and South by Southwest — and of course, Noise Pop, Outside Lands, and Treasure Island — but until this weekend I’d never been to Coachella. In a lot of ways, it’s just like all the others,…

This Week: Gaga's Boy's Club, Miley's Baby Suit & Cranston's Bling

Usually, we give you an intelligent introduction to our end-of-week quotes blog. But this week... well... JESUS... Miley Cyrus dressed up like a baby and sang about grown-up relationship problems while doing so, and we're so freaked out, it's…

This Week: Madonna Strips Down, Jared Leto Overcompensates and CeeLo Blows

It's all about big returns this week! From Eagles of Death Metal's triumphant return to a stage in Paris, through Nicki Minaj's return to mixtapes, to Cee-Lo Green's return to TV, and Jared Leto's return to douche-baggery (though we…

Music, All Shook Down Peep the Nominees for the 58th Grammy Awards

Peep the Nominees for the 58th Grammy Awards

Early this morning, the nominees for the 58th Annual Grammy Awards were announced. And we gotta admit, none of the nominees came as a shocker. Both Taylor Swift and The Weeknd are nominated for seven awards, with Kendrick Lamar…

Drake, Nicki Minaj and Adele Are Nominees For TIME's Person Of The Year Award

I love when polls are open to the public. You never fail to get some zany, cuckoo submissions — Deez Nuts, anyone? Even though Deez Nuts is (sadly) missing from this year's list of Person of the Year nominees…

This Week: Tragedy at The Bataclan

This time last week, coordinated terror attacks across the city devastated Paris. Of the 129 people senselessly murdered, 89 were at an Eagles of Death Metal concert at The Bataclan Theatre. As survivors and first responders share full details of…

This Week: Taylor Acts White, Zendaya Turns Orange, and Stefani Feels Blue

So, what did we learn this week? We learned that Gwen Stefani can't fake cry to save her life, religion should never be brought into fundraising exercises (even if you do happen to have a giant Star of David…

This Week: Travis Barker Confesses, TI Fucks Up, and Taylor Swift's Lady Obsession

How can we sum up this week? Let's just say it wasn't stellar for hip-hop artists talking about women, and that Lady Gaga and Travis Barker have very different ideas about waste receptacles. We'll let the quotes of the week…

This Week: Lorde and Drake Get Married, Taylor Swift Gets Corny, and Elton John Gets Pranked

Sometimes, dumbassery and prejudice ends up igniting a valuable conversation about what changes are necessary to make us better humans. That happened twice this week thanks to the absurd arrest of a 14-year-old boy who made the mistake of being…

Music, All Shook Down The Top 5 Moments of Last Night's VMAs

The Top 5 Moments of Last Night's VMAs

Last night's VMAs were a glorious, technicolor array of moderately controlled chaos and, well, a lot of noise and shiny things. Some people won stuff, other people didn't win stuff, Kanye West talked for 10 minutes about... possibly the…

Some Highlights From Kanye West's Insane VMA Speech Last Night

Last night, Kanye West won the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV VMAs. It was presented to him by Taylor Swift. What followed, however, was 10 minutes of the most rambling acceptance speech we've ever heard. Kanye got close…

This Week: NWA Are Muppets, Patti Smith Is an Aqua Teen, and Calvin Harris Is the Hulk

This week, the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton made bank at the box office and garnered rave reviews from critics. The unexpected knock-on effect of this has been a shocking combination of real-life reports of how NWA conducted themselves at…

It Costs $150 to Be Taylor Swift's Friend on the 1989 Tour

"We are not a fan club. We are a community that celebrates Taylor Swift songs." That's the first message I read on the big screen after taking a seat at Taylor Swift's sold-out show at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara…

Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj Bring Their Beef to Bay Area

Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj dominated music news headlines a few weeks back with a massively inconsequential Twitter beef. I'm going to assume you already know the details of their disagreement because we live in a vapid, meaningless world where…

Lenny Kravitz's Penis, Ryan Adams' 1989, and a Typical Cyrus Family Outing

Last week, in the bar, we heard multiple people start conversations with the words: "Ohmygod! Lenny Kravitz's penis!" Because last week has been a lot about Lenny Kravitz splitting some leather pants on stage and showing the world — and…

This Week: Bieber Buns, Grande Donuts, and Tyga Penis

This week is mostly about over-exposure. We've got Bieber Bora Bora buns, we've got John Legend somebody-move-that-chair buns, and we've got Tyga's penis in all its glory (not on this page though, for obvious reasons...) Then there's Ariana Grande, finally…
