This Week: Gaga's Hoo-Ha, Britney's Toe, and Billy Joel's New Dancers

Posted By on Fri, Sep 4, 2015 at 10:56 AM

It's mostly about the ladies this week. There's Britney Spears who wants men to suck an unexpected body part of hers, and Jackie Fuchs who leapt to the defense of rape survivors everywhere after Chrissie Hynde said a bunch of ridiculous bullshit on the subject. Then there's Lady Gaga throwing herself into a brand new role with aplomb, while Azealia Banks just keeps on, keepin' on, doing what she's always done. Oh. And Justin Bieber talked about crying a bit, as well. 

Here are your quotes of the week:

“Men frankly can suck my fucking toe, but girls, I love you. Oh my god, you’re beautiful!”
During a recent concert, Britney Spears said "fucking", but couldn't get to anything more explicit than "toe." Adorable. (Carlo De Santos / Instagram)

“If I’m walking around and I’m very modestly dressed and I’m keeping to myself and someone attacks me, then I’d say that’s his fault… You know, if you don’t want to entice a rapist, don’t wear high heels so you can’t run from him.”
Chrissie Hynde thinks the cause of rape is footwear. WOW. (The Sunday Times)

“It bothers me… If you had seen the messages that people sent me, so many of them were about ‘I’ve always thought it was my fault.’ We already think that anyway. So this is just telling people who’ve recently gone through this experience of being raped or abused, ‘Yeah, you’re right, it is your fault.’ But there’s no such thing as asking for it. And poor judgment is not an invitation to rape, nor an excuse for it.”
The Runaways’ Jackie Fuchs puts some important perspective on Hynde’s statement. (Yahoo Music)

"She showed up and she was wearing diamond pasties, a Band-Aid on her hoo-ha, heels, and a black veil that Alexander McQueen made for her on the day before his death. Then the crew gasped in delight and we were off!"
Ryan Murphy on Lady Gaga’s frisky new role in the new season of American Horror Story. (Entertainment Weekly)

“It's so funny to wake up and see nicki and Miley or nicki and taylor fighting when you ALL make basic ass music.”
Azealia Banks is at it again… (Twitter)

“I just wasn’t expecting them to support me the way they did. The last time I was at an awards show I was booed.”
Justin Bieber had an ickle cry on stage at the VMAs last Sunday, and then he told Jimmy Fallon about it. (Tonight Show)

"Lemmy will resume duties the moment he is PROPERLY rested and firing on all cylinders again. The legendary Motörheadbanger patience is much appreciated, and the band send their deepest thanks.”
Lemmy is not feeling well and we should all be sad because of it. (Facebook)

"Rap – so many words, so little said. What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there."
Somewhat unsurprisingly, Keith Richards doesn't know anything about hip-hop. (NME

"I mean people are voting for Trump. Who wouldn't vote for Kanye?!"
Rihanna is down with the Kanye 2020 campaign already. (Entertainment Weekly)

And finally: Billy Joel’s still got it. Here’s a video of new BFFs Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence literally dancing on his piano:

  • 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.'"
