The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn’t like each other, they’d deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment. Maybe they’d toss in a lyrical jab, the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did toward Neil Young on “Sweet Home Alabama,” but that would be just about it. That’… More »

The Weeknd Remixes Lady Gaga

We mentioned Lady Gaga’s Born This Way: The Remix LP around these parts a little while ago — Wild Beasts’ remix of “Yoü And I” hit the web in August — and now another one of the tracks we were most excited about, the Weeknd and Illangelo’s remix of “Marry The Night,” has surfaced. More »

10 Possible Monday Night Football Replacements For Hank Williams, Jr.

As you may have heard, country music lifer Hank Williams, Jr. has parted ways with Monday Night Football, the TV show he spent 20 years singing the intro for, just because he made a totally calm and reasonable parallel between Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler. (He also compared John Boehner to Netanyahu? Whatever.) If you… More »

David Bowie (Jimmy Fallon) Covers “Pumped Up Kicks”

Here’s something we missed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon the night before last. Fallon and guest Joseph Gordon-Levitt, apparently friends in real life, got together to sing karaoke and do impressions of other singers. Fallon, as David Bowie, sang Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks.” JGL, as Axl Rose, sang Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U… More »

Lady Gaga – “Yoü And I (Wild Beasts Remix)”

File this under “whuh?,” but a remix of Lady Gaga’s “Yoü And I” by British soft rockers Wild Beasts surfaced this morning. Those familiar with the Beasts’ work can certainly discern the band’s influences on the treatment of the track, which weaves in a lot of atmosphere and a spare piano line. Check it out… More »

Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake revived their funky fresh new jack swing duo on tonight’s season finale of Saturday Night Live, which JT hosted for the fourth time.

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

This week we’ve got new videos from Buraka Som Sistema, Herman Düne, Lady Gaga, The Cave Singers, and Rusko. I put the Buraka Som Sistema and Rusko videos next to each other because I think they’re shot and edited differently, but they’re great examples of entering and filming an impoverished culture without exploiting them. Both… More »

Gaga Vetoes “Weird Al” Parody: Hear “Perform This Way”

Weird Al told the New York Times that Lady Gaga personally said no, but the always-vague “sources close to the singer” told TMZ that she hasn’t even heard the “Born This Way” parody yet, let alone vetoed it. Weird Al put the parody on YouTube, so you can judge it yourself. Think Lady Gaga should… More »

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

I don’t think there could be a Best Videos Of The Week column without a clip of someone spanking or spitting on someone else. I think 2011 may be the year of the S&M video, between Rihanna’s video, and last week‘s K-Holes clip, so expect lots more of that. Besides those clips we’ve got new… More »

Arcade Fire Win Album Of The Year Grammy

Arcade Fire pulled off the upset of the night (or, at least, left a few people at home upset) by winning the Album Of The Year Grammy last night. Things looked good for the band when it became obvious that they’d be the last performance (nearly every performer went home with awards later in the… More »

Yoko Ono brought the Plastic Ono Band to L.A.’s Orpheum Theatre this weekend, playing two nights with guests Sonic Youth, Iggy Pop, RZA, Perry Ferrell, tUnE-yArDs, and Lady Gaga.

Lollapalooza 2010 Friday: Lady Gaga And The Strokes, So Far Away Yet … Yeah, So Far Away

As much as Lolla’s undercard is varied, and vast, it’s a headliner’s ball this year. Because this deep into the festival season we’ve seen nearly all of these bands plenty, and because Lolla has created some discourse-owning 8PM show-downs. Night one’s was a study in contrasts: Lady Gaga, or the Strokes? We caught both, two… More »

M.I.A. Assesses Lady Gaga

M.I.A. is on the April 7 cover of the NME (to be fair, there are nine other covers this week) as part of their special “The State Of Music Today” issue. Inside she discusses politics in music, what music’ll look like in ten years, and dresses down Coldplay and Lady Gaga. The kids at OhMore »

Lollapalooza 2010 Lineup

Lolla’s not playing games anymore: The full and official lineup’s in, and it’s fully and officially great. First off, let’s talk about Soundgarden. Soundgarden! If this news came in just two days ago they’d have been copping a “Jesus Christ Pose” for real, but in any event this is a good thing, at the very… More »

Lady Gaga And Beyoncé In Kill Bill 3.0 “Telephone”

At ten minutes, the video for the Gaga & Beyoncé track “Telephone” is maybe too long and definitely too heavy on the referencing Tarantino, but at least they get the important business out of the way upfront with a closeup and commentary on Gaga’s disco stick. More »

Winners Florence Welch, Dizzee Rascal Perform Together At 2010 Brit Awards

London hosted the BRIT Awards last night, which offered some nice firsts: Lily Allen won her first award as Best British Female Solo Act and her first as a Snooki lookalike (fire the stylist), and Lady Gaga swept three international awards. International Male of the year? Jay-Z. A performance highlight came via two of the… More »
