This Week: Madonna's Frisky, Florence Is Broken, and Miley Cyrus Can't Stop Giving Us Fuel for Nightmares

Posted By on Fri, Apr 17, 2015 at 9:40 AM

A lot of wrong was brought to our attention this week. The Madonna-Drake make out sesh was wrong from every single angle: If you back her making the move, his visibly disgusted response was wrong (and rude). If you sympathize with Drake's response, then Madonna was wrong to plant one on him in the first place. Elsewhere, this week, we saw Senator Marco Rubio name-dropping EDM stars, Florence Welch breaking herself mid-Coachella set, grunge legends Temple of the Dog getting ripped off, Madonna (her, again!) hitting on her son's friends, and Kanye West mis-using the word "Literally". Wrong. All kinds of wrong, from all kinds of angles. So obviously, we figured this was the perfect time to push you in the direction of Miley Cyrus's Instagram account... Where almost everything is wrong all of the time, and that's kind of the whole point. 

Without further ado, here are the quotes of the week:

“don’t misinterpret my shock!! I got to make out with the queen Madonna and I feel 100 about that forever. Thank you @madonna"
Drake on the fact that he looked repulsed after Madonna made out with him onstage at Coachella. (Instagram)

"I was at breakfast with my son Rocco, thinking, I haven't had a date in a couple of weeks. I looked at my son without thinking and said 'Do you have friends you could introduce me to?"
Hey, look at that! Drake is off the hook! Stay frisky, Madonna! (US Weekly)

“I’m so sorry to say, that after what was one of my favourite shows ever at Coachella, I have discovered I have broken my foot from leaping off the stage… This album was so much about making something from what was broken, so lets see what we can do with this.”
Get well soon, Florence Welch! (Facebook)

It's a side-note, but if you're not already following Miley Cyrus on Instagram, you should start because this shit's crazy: 
  • Instagram / Miley Cyrus
“I don’t want to be a zombie. I want to be like [Daryl’s] friend from the city. Like a distant relative — ‘He’s my uncle’s friend from New York.’ They’re not going to have that, are they? I’d show up with like a PBS tote bag and something from Zabar’s — be like, ‘Hey, I got lox! Who wants bagels?’”‏
Ad-Rock on wanting a cameo in The Walking Dead. (Entertainment Weekly)

"There were talks ages ago of me being an extra, which could have been cool. But every time they shoot it's the time I tour the UK... I've got that time off this year, I'm going to hound them."
And Ed Sheeran wants a cameo on Game of Thrones. (NME)

"Every time I crash the internet, it’s like this little drop of truth. Every time I say something that’s extremely truthful, out loud, it literally breaks the internet. So what are we getting all of the rest of the time?”
Kanye West, being Kanye West again. (Time)

“You know, electronic music — I've gotten into it a little bit with David Guetta, Axwell ^ Ingrosso, Swedish House Mafia, those guys. And I'm still a Nicki Minaj fan. She's very talented."
Oh, quit trying so hard, Marco Rubio... (TMZ)

"A&M Records paid for the recordings and the use of the studio... to pretend he has a right to keep the recordings makes no more sense than the owner of a laundromat claiming he owns the clothes you washed in his washing machine."
Chris Cornell on the fact that some random douche-lord dude who co-founded a recording studio once, is basically holding the Temple of the Dog master recordings hostage. (Associated Press)

“So sad to learn of the passing of #percysledge. His voice and his songs will resonate with generations to come.”
Candi Staton, was one of the first people to pay tribute to Percy Sledge. RIP. (Twitter)

  • 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.'"
