"As for any further drum-offs, I'm sure that with a bit of practice, I could give Chad a run for his money. But Will? That's a whole different story ... I mean, you're talking about a guy who's so next level, actually, so beyond next level, that he may just be completely unreachable! That said, I'm definitely up for the challenge ... Bring it on!!!"
Lars Ulrich has accepted a three-way drum-off challenge with RHCP's Chad Smith and Will Ferrell. We're not sad. (Spin)

"When this record comes out, a lot of fans will go, 'Oh that's Jay Z.' And then their buddy gets to smack 'em in the face."
Ice-T, giving one of the reasons Body Count just recorded a new version of "99 Problems" (Rolling Stone)

"I want to stay in a place where 50-year-old rich people stay. It's not that I care who's around me -- I just don't want anyone around me. And if it's an old rich lady, they're usually pretty quiet and disgusted I'm even here, which I like. I want to be at the pool and nobody is at the pool -- not you and all your bridesmaids."
Iggy Azalea hates your bridesmaids. (Billboard)

"Your name is Aubrey Drake Graham, but we all know you as Drake. I'm just wondering if you maybe wanna choose a name that's a little more hip-hop, rap. You know, like Graham Cracka?"
Vanessa Bayer fake interviewing Drake for her 'Sound Advice' skit is pretty great (YouTube)

"Morrissey announces the close down of his current US tour with 'unimaginable sorrow'. On Saturday, June 7th, following the show at Boston Opera House, Morrissey collapsed and was rushed to Massachusetts General Hospital were doctors treated Morrissey for "acute fever". Difficulties had arisen on May 31 following Kristeen Young's opening set at the Miami Knight Concert Hall ... the symptoms of which were passed on to Morrissey."
Serious question: has Morrissey ever actually completed a tour in its entirety? (True to You)

"I had an allergy attack that was over within 16 hours. I went to a doctor, an allergy specialist, who gave me drugs for allergies ... and they worked. I explained this and offered this doctor's phone number to Morrissey ... and the tour manager. But they NEVER followed up with me ... I was asked to leave [the tour] ... I will not tolerate these lies ... particularly about my health. This is really too much and bizarre."
Kristeen Young doesn't appreciate Morrissey's scapegoating. (Facebook)

Here's a video that's almost as upsetting as Morrissey:

"One of our road crew ... had been involved in gangs in the past and at one point, was very high up in the chain of command. Eyes bulging out of my sockets, high as a kite, I asked 'What would it take to have my wife and her new boyfriend hurt really bad ... or worse?' ... At that moment, I can honestly say that I wish I could have hired someone to kill my wife and her boyfriend."
We're pretty sure that Brian 'Head' Welch from Korn just publicly confessed to a serious crime. (Loudwire)

"I wish I was dead already... I don't want to keep doing this. Everything... That's just how I feel."
We don't want you to keep doing this either, Lana Del Rey. (The Guardian)

"We're told Bieber's religious resurgence focused on studying Bible passages and attending services ... culminating in an actual baptism performed in the bathtub of one of the singer's friends."
We think you probably need more than a bath, Bieber. (TMZ)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
