This Week: Kanye's a Cartoon, Lorde's a Waxwork, and Iggy and Britney are Plastic

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2015 at 9:26 AM

This week, there's a whole wealth of campaigning going on: Bill O'Reilly is against hip-hop, Anthony Kiedis and Moby are pro-bear, Miley Cyrus is speaking up for her vagina, Pink is anti-bullying, and Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears are clearly attempting to start a new wave — of vapidity. If the push and pull of it all is feeling too much for you, fear not: Kanye is now the main character in a children's book and Snoop Dogg thinks Game of Thrones is real. Thanks rap folk.

“One day, Kim saw Kanye playing with some other chickens, which made her upset. She was so upset that she decided to run away!”
Zak Tebbal has penned a children’s book about Kanye West and his - in this case, literal - chick, Kim. (ZekTebbal.com)

"The rap industry, for example, often glorifies depraved behavior. That sinks into the minds of some young people — the group that is most likely to reject religion."
Oh, look. Bill O’Reilly is still a fucking racist. (Huffington Post)

“Do you know how many times I turn on the radio and hear somebody ask me to suck his dick? This is the best song! Now suck my fucking pussy!”
Miley Cyrus, halfway through her rendition of “My Neck, My Back”, at a New York Adult Swim party. (Billboard)

Moby, Duff McKagan, Anthony Kiedis, Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne and more, want you to care about the bears, and support Animals Asia. (Unsurprisingly, James Hetfield is nowhere in sight):

“I’m not a person that will be bullied. I'm not a person that will stand by watching other people bullied. I'm also raising a girl. I am a girl, I have feelings, and people think I take no shit and I'm tough — tougher than nails — but I'm a human being."
Pink has feelings too, you bastards! (Entertainment Tonight)

“He’s leaving after 30 years and you know he will be missed/ If you like gap-toothed men and double-breasted suits, he’s number one on your Top Ten list.”
Adam Sandler made a return to music with a heartfelt song about David Letterman. (The Late Show)

Drive a few hours south to Los Angeles, and you too can now meet a wax rendition of Lorde, thanks to the terrifying sorcery of Madame Tussaud's:

“I think they’re gonna come out of the woodwork next year, ‘cause everyone wants to be a part of the last season. Boy, it’s gonna be crazy!”
Only one more season of American Idol to go!!! ...Harry Connick Jr said this quote, but that matters less… (Billboard)

"I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now."
Snoop Dogg appears to think that Game of Thrones is some sort of historical documentary. (New York Post

And finally, Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea just released a song to remind women everywhere that looking nice should be their absolute top priority in life. The video also demonstrates that, despite the insane American accent Iggy Azalea uses on ALL of her songs, she can't actually do one when she's just talking.
(We apologize in advance for all of the horrors you're about to witness):

  • 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.'"
