Rihanna, Kanye & Drake Did The NBA All-Star Halftime Show, Sports Fans

On the same weekend as Kanye's Enter The Void-jacking "All Of The Lights" video dropped, Ye dropped in during that song for Rihanna's hits-medley halftime show at last night's NBA All-Star game. Also appearing was Drake, most recently seen wooing Rihanna's booty during the Grammys telecast. All that in the 11:42 of halftime… More »

Kanye West – “All Of The Lights” Video

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy's most triumphant brass fanfare meets the Star Wars font it was always intended for, along with a cameo from Rihanna with Ye on top of a cop car and Cudi in red leather, both MJ style (our [redacted] dead) and a nod to Enter The Void's opening title sequence,… 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 i… More »

The 9 Best Videos Of The Week

This week's best videos include clips from Rural Alberta Advantage, Rihanna, CocknBullKid, How To Dress Well, and Lord Huron. This week I've decided to start picking one extra video that isn't one of the best of the week, but is still worth watching/talking about, like that excessively violent South Central video from last week.

Kanye Dark Twisted Fantasy Leaking, Pre-Order Up

When not beefing with Bush or showing us his bushy beef, Kanye West makes music. The Bon Iver-guesting "Monster" has been floating around for awhile. You've also maybe watched the 35-minute "Runaway" video. You'll find "All Of The Lights" on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, too. This one won't take… More »

Taylor Momsen Covers The xx And Rihanna AT THE SAME TIME

Courtney Love already hates her, so Gossip Girl's Carrie Wright Taylor Momsen probably didn't think twice about dissing Rihanna in Spin a few weeks back. “People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred," she said. "Now Rihanna’s wearing fucking leather jackets, and it’s really annoying.” Whoops. More »

Rihanna – “Rude Boy (Blondes Remix)” (Feat. Mariah Carey)

Dense/deeply hypnotic Brooklyn-via-Obelrin beat-duo Blondes turn out Rihanna's Billboard jam "Rude Boy," dialing up the stutter and splicing in a sustained slice of Mariah Carey melisma on this, the most Bushwick roofparty friendly take on a Rihanna track you're likely to hear all month. The cut comes from a five-song comp titled Autumn Feelings,… More »

Eminem (Feat. Rihanna) – “Love The Way You Lie” Video

Two artists with domestic abuse in their past doing a video about domestic abuse. Having Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan helps drive the message home, if the message is that violent relationships are super sexy fun. Watch at Videogum. More »

Marilyn Manson Hits A New Low

The video for The High End Of Low's "Running To The Edge Of The World" features Brian Warner up-close and remorsefully weepy when not beating a bloodied woman senseless. It is a painfully weak attempt at shock, sure. (As Videogum put it: "Maybe we shouldn't judge this video too harshly until we've seen it through… More »

New Jay-Z (Feat. Rihanna & Kanye West) Video – “Run This Town”

A portrait of a dystopian future: there will be fires, rituals, and scary masks, but a few things will stay the same: Rihanna still looks great in a garter belt and Jay-Z still attracts crowds when he raps. Murderous, freaky, Mad Maxy sorta crowds. More »

New Jay-Z (Feat. Rihanna & Kanye West) – “Run This Town”

The Jay-Z news cycle's sped up in anticipation of The Blueprint 3, between "Death Of Auto-Tune," replacing the Beasties at APW, and having MGMT guest on the new LP. Get used to it. And while the auto-tune eulogy came as an early leaked mission statement, it's the poppy "Run This Town" that… More »

New Kanye West & Rihanna Video – “Paranoid”

A simple but well executed concept for the fifth 808s & Heartbreak video finds a determined Rihanna on an after hours cruise down a long and winding road. The night vision clip starts and ends with the photogenic lingerie-clad pop star in bed; those aforementioned driving scenes are a dream sequence. Close-ups show her… More »

Kanye Gives Props To Paparazzi

A photo of Rihanna near a taxi triggers Kanye's latest meditation on modern pop superstars: "Justin in the new Mike, Beyonce's the new Tina Turner, Gaga's Madonna, Jay is Sinatra... Wayne is Hendrix, Thom Yorke is Roger Waters..." I thought Jamie Foxx was Sinatra? More »
