This Week: Nicki Minaj's Magic Boobs, Kurt Cobain's Ghost, and Marilyn Manson's Black Eye

Posted By on Fri, Apr 10, 2015 at 9:17 AM

The overriding theme of this week's music happenings is quite clearly the supernatural — what with the ghost of Kurt Cobain living on in his daughter's face, murdered legend Selena being resurrected via hologram, Nicki Minaj curing the sick with only the power of her mighty chesticles, and Anne Hathaway channeling Miley Cyrus just for fun. Plus Madonna just survived the annihilation of mankind — in her own mind and video, at least. (We also can't help but notice Madge channeling a little of Miley on "Ghosttown" too — or is it just us that hears shades of "Wrecking Ball" on that chorus?) 

Anyways, here's the music quotes of the week.

“Dave [Grohl], Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear] came over to a house where I was living. It was the first time [the ex-Nirvana members] had been together in a long time. And they had what I call the "K. C. Jeebies," which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they're looking at a ghost. They were all getting the K. C. Jeebies hardcore.”
Frances Bean Cobain is very aware of her striking resemblance to her father. (Rolling Stone)

“He’s so fine. Those big-ass white teeth and ears hanging off his head. I'm like, 'Oh my god, I want to fuck the president'.”
Good luck with that, Azalea Banks(Billboard)

"Look at how he stopped crying when he laid his head on dem thangz. They have real power beaming out of them that can cure the sick.”
Nicki Minaj comforted a crying 12-year-old boy fan with a maternal hug. He started grinning the second his head hit her ample bosom. (Instagram)

“Manson never got a chance to sit down. He was being friendly with everyone, anyone who wanted a picture, he would give them a picture, anyone who wanted an autograph he would give them an autograph. They were just talking and the guy just punched him right in the face without any provocation."
A witness describes the moment that Marilyn Manson became the first ever visitor to Canada to receive a hostile welcome. (NME)

We can’t believe this show is a real thing… but we’re still blatantly gonna watch it:

“By no means is this something that’s creepy or weird. We think it’s something amazing. A lot of the new fans that did not get to experience what Selena was about hopefully will be able to get a sense of her with this new technology that’s going to be coming out.”
The family of Selena Quintanilla are turning the iconic Tejano pop star into a hologram, with the help of tech company, Acrovirt LLC. (Billboard)

“Transgender women in male prisons have an equal right to protection from violence and abuse in prison, yet they continue to face horrific injustices… Transgender inmates are 13 times more likely to be sexually assaulted while incarcerated. This is outrageous, and the message it sends is horrific: that violence against and discrimination of trans people is not only allowed, but sanctioned.”
Elton John and Michael Stipe have released a statement condemning the treatment of trans inmates in American prisons. (NME)

"For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer… I hope and pray that you never get news like this.”
Taylor Swift just shared some very bad news. (Tumblr)

“Who’s feeling these new bullshit laws that they’re trying to pass around here? I said fuck that shit. I wanna hear you say fuck that shit… Cause we’re just living our motherfuckin’ lives.”
Rihanna performing in Indianapolis last weekend objecting to Indiana’s homophobic “Religious Freedom Restoration Act”. (Jezebel)

Remember that old joke, where Jimmy James said “After a nuclear holocaust, all that will be left are cockroaches and Cher…” Well, Madonna’s new video suggests he might have picked the wrong lady singer:
Also, we most definitely prefer this:

  • 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.'"
