This Week: Jack Black Defends Kanye, Deadmau5 Defends Equine Rights, and Eminem Draws a Picture

Posted By on Fri, Jul 17, 2015 at 9:52 AM

Surprises all round this week! Louis from One Direction has unexpectedly knocked up a "friend," Katy Perry (who's never won a Grammy) is up for an Emmy, Sinead O'Connor probably hasn't looked at Rolling Stone for 15 years, and it turns out that Eminem is a polite and thoughtful young man with impeccable handwriting.

Here are the quotes of the week:

  • Rolling Stone
“What is this cunt doing on the cover of Rolling Stone? Music has officially died. Who knew it would be Rolling Stone that murdered it? Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh can no longer be expected to take all the blame. Bob Dylan must be fucking horrified. #BoycottRollingStone”
This was Sinead O’Connor's response to Kim Kardashian’s Rolling Stone cover. Clearly, she missed the one where Snooki rode a rocket... (Facebook)

“It feels like everyone is really mean to Kanye West and I’m sick of it… I do agree that he is an asshole, but I don’t agree that he’s not talented - because people put those things together and they are wrong… It’s the narcissism that ruins the thing.”
Jack Black thinks Kanye is an asshole worth defending. (Conan)

  • Katy Perry / Instagram

“Louis is happy and very excited about becoming a dad and he thinks Briana will be an amazing mother. It was a surprise at first, but he and Briana are very, very close friends and this has brought them even closer."
This is a People magazine source talking about the fact that One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has impregnated an L.A. stylist. Based on DNA evidence, we think they might be more than "very close friends"... (People)

“I’m sure the horse really appreciated it. stupid fucks. fuck @davidguetta and fuck @pacha… for real… horses belong on a farm, not in a shitty overpriced nightclub to be subjected to a shitty overpaid DJ.”
Deadmau5, calling out the fact that David Guetta is using a live horse during the enormous party he hosts at Pacha, Ibiza. (You can sign the petition against that nonsense HERE.) (Twitter

"Thanks for reciting my lyrics, @IanMcKellen and @SirPatStew! You've made my day."
Taylor Swift was pretty stoked when she saw this: (Twitter)

"Just drinking and shagging, and a-drinkin' and a-shaggin'... As The Faces, we were banned from all Holiday Inns, so we used to check in as Fleetwood Mac."
James Cordon took Rod Stewart out for a drive, and some hilarious 1970s reminiscing occurred. (The Late Late Show With James Cordon

"Streaming has ended for me. I hope this is ok for my fans. It’s not because of the money… It's about sound quality. I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music."
Neil Young sounds better on vinyl anyway… (Facebook)

"The closest I can do to stopping is putting the root word, negus, on my album. But I don’t know if I'm there mentally to stop saying the N-word yet. I dunno, maybe one day. That’s 27 years of reversing that word, I probably been saying that since I was one-year-old.”
Sorry, Chuck D. Kendrick Lamar isn't ready to stop saying "nigga" yet... (NME)

"Sorry if it looks a little sloppy. I could've done a little better if I had the right pencils. Instead I had to draw it in pen. But I've been drawing since I was 10 and I thought you might like it."
And finally, that big softy Eminem sent a drawing of Tupac, along with a very neatly hand-written letter, to Tupac's mom. Adorable. (Watchloud)

  • 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.'"
