"*Lorde Voice*♪♪♪ But we will never win, Royals ♪♪♪ #sports #topical"
Mark Hoppus has suggested a new version of "Royals" in light of the Giants defeating Kansas in the World Series (Twitter)

"Congrats San Fran. #Giants Celebrate Safe. Great Job #Royals."
Questlove is nice to everyone, at all times. (Twitter)

"...I’m physically incarcerated but spiritually and mentally I’m free as ever. I enjoy working out molding my body and I look forward to changing my diet for the better because I realize to get to the status I crave I must make a life-change which is permanent, not a quick-fix."
Gucci Mane has written a letter to fans from behind bars. (MTV.com)

"I've never gotten a black eye or busted lip, but I have been in relationships where I felt abused one way or another: mentally, emotionally, verbally. I know what it feels like for your soul to be diminished by the way your loved one is treating you..."
Jennifer Lopez has written a memoir, titled True Love. Jezebel shared a sneak peek.

"The 21st century has provided all of us, recent generations particularly, with a clearer idea of the breadth of fluidity with which sexuality and identity presents itself in each individual... It’s thrilling to see progressive change shift perceptions so quickly."
Michael Stipe wrote an awesome article about coming out 20 years ago. (The Guardian)

"All I do is shuttle kids around in a mini-van, then come down here and be in the Foo Fighters. That's it. And I'm not lying!"
Dave Grohl was a totally charming beacon of enthusiasm on 60 Minutes:



"So Paris Hilton makes a billion dollars playing a CD at a club. That's great... But let's get real here for a second. There's being involved/enthusiastic about something... and then there's just being a straight up ass."
Deadmau5 thinks Paris Hilton is a straight up ass. (Twitter)

"Dance music across all types has become formula-based. It’s ‘Here’s your drum fill, here’s your build.’ All that DJ bollocks and tutorials on YouTube shit."
The Prodigy's Liam Howlett thinks it's all bollocks. (Q)

"Quite what the master plan behind this theft is I don't know, but a local business has been broken into and a one of a kind piece of art work taken. This was the only piece taken and some might say we are therefore looking for an Oasis fan..."
Police managed to sneak two Oasis song titles into an appeal for a stolen portrait of the band (proving that English police really are jollier than American ones.) (Greater Manchester Police)

"The fans were wonderful enough to make it No. 1 on iTunes, and it is selling really, really well, which is good, because I'm donating all my proceeds to New York City public schools."
Haters better quit hating Taylor Swift's "Welcome to New York" now — it's for a good cause. (The View) 

And finally, Joan Jett, Carrie Brownstein, Sia, Alexis Krauss and all these other awesome ladies (and gents) want you to vote because "When women vote, women win":

  • 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.'"
