This Week: Left Shark is a Legend, Kanye West is "About to Spazz" and Morrissey Ditches Iceland

"It is a hundred times harder a dream than the dream that I dreamt when I was nine. You think you signed up for one thing, but you automatically sign up for a hundred others. And that is why you see people shaving their fucking heads."
Katy Perry sounds stressed. She should go watch some Left Shark footage to cheer up. (Elle)

"We love the laughter and joy this moment has created for the world and think the left shark nailed it! Don't forget…we all have a little #leftshark in us!”
RJ Durell, Katy Perry’s choreographer, on Left Shark’s (hilarious) inability to stick to his dance moves during the Super Bowl halftime show. (Hollywood Reporter)

“People are always like ‘Hey! It’s starting to get annoying!” …Hopefully we didn't annoy you too badly…”
Pete Wentz on the overuse of Fall Out Boy’s music during ESPN’s college football coverage. (Fox Sports)

“Hold me back/ I’m about to spazz”
Kanye West in “Fourfiveseconds” — his collaboration with Rihanna and Paul McCartney.

"John Legend will not be attending the L.A. Confidential party at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday, February 5th in light of the horrific anti-women and anti-LGBT policies approved by the hotel's owner, the Sultan of Brunei. These policies, which among other things could permit women and LGBT Bruneians to be stoned to death, are heinous and certainly don't represent John's values or the spirit of the event. John does not, in any way, wish to further enrich the Sultan while he continues to enforce these brutal laws."
Props to John Legend for refusing to perform at a party specifically thrown for him, in solidarity with women and the LGBT community. (Billboard)

"I love Iceland and I have waited a long time to return, but I shall leave the Harpa Concert Hall to their cannibalistic flesh-eating bloodlust.”
Morrissey canceled a show (SURPRISE!) on the grounds that an Iceland venue wouldn’t go vegetarian for the night. (True To You)

"We were never asked about anything. I was never asked to speak to the restaurants here about whether they would serve meat on the night of the gig… It's totally his decision, but it was strange for us to read about it on the internet before we were asked about it.
Halldór Guðmundsson, of Iceland’s Harpa Concert Hall, disputes Morrissey’s claim. (NME)

"It's been heartbreaking to see the Houston family in such pain again. I certainly offer my continued support."
Clive Davis on the horrifying news that Bobbi Kristina Brown is fighting for her life after being found unconscious in a bathtub — just like her mom, Whitney Houston. (Billboard)

"R.I.P the jacka, had a chance to meet the homie cpl times & build with him & record some joints, my condolences to his family & friends,"
The Wu Tang’s Raekwon paid tribute to The Jacka, who was shot in Oakland on Monday night. RIP (Twitter)

And finally, in case you thought you were the biggest Left Shark fan on earth, BEHOLD!

  • 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.'"
