“They are dinosaurs, and they are dying off. We are the new generation, and with that will come so much. We are moving forward. As much as we get distracted by stupid laws that make us feel like we’re regressing, we’re not. We are moving forward because it’s our turn as young people. It’s a new rights movement.”
Miley Cyrus slammed Indiana’s new (anti-LGBTQ) religious freedom law on her Instagram, then said this to Time Magazine. Like a boss.

“You probably shouldn’t be with somebody that’s going to fly off the handle. I guess I would come up with an excuse… The 'It’s not you, it’s me’ sometimes works — or you could blame your parents. Sometimes that’s a good out… Blame the parents. Why not?”
Ad-Rock did an “Ask a Grown Man” video for Rookie. And it was pretty darn adorable. (Rookie)

“Thanks for not killing us…”
Rihanna’s April Fool’s prank on Jimmy Kimmel was great:

"I love Rihanna. I actually love her. She nearly turned me straight the night I met her."

“I’m dead-ass serious. I love that movie… It’s about leadership and focus.”

"I don't think I'm gonna be at all famous. I don't think I could handle it."
There’s an Amy Winehouse documentary coming out this year. Good Lord, we miss her:

"I felt like I couldn't breathe, I couldn't talk and I couldn't move. I thought I was dying… I had no idea a bug bite could do this. I was bedridden for five months.”
Avril Lavigne has Lyme disease and it clearly hasn’t been a picnic. (People)

Goddamnit. Waiting 'til August for the NWA movie to come out is killing us. Watch the new trailer and feel frustrated:
“I don't want to say 'it's different,' because that's what everyone says. But it is different, it's a grown-up version of Justin and I think people will be shocked.”

And finally, there was something weirdly depressing about Ed Sheeran’s appearance on Sesame Street:

  • 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.'"
